The outcxoppings of can didates is not very strong rind hardly indicates the real si-am that may. be struck latex on. Th? STortb Ward ratepayers have aspiration? of electing two .men or rather two can- didates from the North Ward havp aspirations for election. They will likely and ought to elect one mun, unless they both get knifed by sore- heads who didn't get aorninnted. Arthur Frayne was a caniiclc'te last year and would have been elected if he had not been knifed by whose aldermaTiic ambitions. were not- encouraged by the North Ward elect- ors at their preliminary meeting. If the North Ward people would unite behind him they would elect him, for the people of the south side are fair enough to elect a North Ward man if the people over there will agree on man. As for the other guy nom- inated at the he'll never have his name on the nomination pa- per or I miss my guess. If his sup- porters are not wise enough to pull him out he ought to know enough I himself to crawl off and not monkey I with the machinery. has been a great old roar throughout the city this week. The I sound thereof has to the heav- ens as the of an earthquake. The tax notices caused it all.

Either the asses- I sor did not make out the right kind of a notice or else the printer balled It made a ds-iu bad muss of it anyway and now the assessor is as busy as the mischief straight- j erring it out.
