Fiji a Hayden in co. Snap shots. Mayor Wilkinson is mayor of Albert Lea not of the License party alone. The second Ward and the City appreciate the very valuable services of w. A. Morin. Over fifty votes were cast in the first Ward before eight of clock tuesday morning. There Are just exactly one Hundred and fifty who can say to Alderman Strauss a i did it. A Paradox three License aldermen a License mayor and no License. Will it prove a a blessed Paradox Quot a a nah a said the Boon companion after the vote was decided a a there a Many a slip twixt the cup and the it was thought by some of our citizens tuesday evening that the a dutch band Quot a had returned to town. Alex. Mckee on the election a the business men lied to me. Hereafter i u Send to Minneapolis and buy my goods. A both License and no License men were confident of Victory tuesday but each party predicted that the vote would be very dose. The citizens of the first Ward decided by a close vote that they would not be represented in the Council by an August personage. We predict that commencing with the harvesting of the next crop the merchants of this City will enjoy the most prosperous period since 1892, Winnebago City has maintained a policy of no License for eight years and now Blue Earth City Falls into line with a majority of eight against the a Lex n. Give us the sewer and a few improvements in the Way of sidewalks and Albert Lea will easily maintain her proud position As Queen of Southern Minnesota cities. Sex Alderman Armstrong made a Long hard fight in his Bailiwick but the popularity and known business ability of his opponent proved too much for the Young Man. The sports had a great time of it and excitement ran High in their circles. The License men were confident but the no licenses were the Confidence men that took them in. In America we advocate the adoption of the Laws we think Best and right and when a Law is adopted most of us patriotically observe it until it is repealed by the majority. Keep your laundry on there is no Alderman in Albert Lea who would attempt to thwart the will of the majority by granting License even were such a proceeding Legal. Of my friends and those who voted for me at the late election will forgive me once More i will try never to allure them to defeat again. I was led to expect better treatment at the hands of my co workers. Do Wilcox. S. Strauss the popular and prosperous merchant has promised to give the City the same care that lie has so Thrif tily applied to his own business. He is an excellent Man of affairs Aud should be made chairman of the finance committee. Although a larger vote was polled in the first Ward than in either of the other two not Only wore tin judges of that Ward the first to Complete their count but Twenty minutes after the polls closed it was known that the Ward had gone no License by eighteen majority. Tile opposition did the ministers a great injustice a heu they said that the a Brothers Quot had no tolerance or even tact. It was an error and we can prove it for the divines in their tolerance and Wisdom refrained entirely from jangling their Church Bells in Celebration of the Victory. In the retirement of w. S. Krebs from the Council the City loses the services of a faithful and unusually Eli cent servant. Or. Krebs is a careful business Man and it is due him to say that he took the same interest in the affairs of the City that he does in his own business. As chairman of the finance committee or. Krebs examined carefully All claims and Bills against the City and his watchfulness resulted in the saving of much Money to the City Treasury. In advising measures in estimating costs expenses Aud taxes or. Krebs has been remarkably accurate and in All matters relating to the City finances his services have been invaluable. He retires from office with the respect and esteem of not Only his constituents in the first Ward but of the people of the entire City As Well.
