Knopps a Hunt did you say Lehmann what will he Hunt for Lehmann As i hear he intends Togo Hunting for City Bonds. Knopps what kind a Hunt did you say Lehmann Lehmann a Bonds Hunt. You know Well enough that notwithstanding the repeated requests the citizens nothing has been heard the $350, Worth City Bonds and now i hear that he himself is going a Hunt to see if he can to find them provided they Are in the same place for we hear since to is again elected he would like to have a nearer acquaintance with them himself.

Editor Light As the paid scribbler for the City and county rings to wit a a Dillard a anti slander a alias a Granite a a Vox Populis a Balmoral a a Tony a a citizen a a taxpayer a etc., seems to have subsided for want feed please let me show you Why mayor Callaghan a action in a a firing the fire department bodily was right and just what he ought to have done under the present political situation the cite. The Volunteer fire department Here is the Best in the state and almost if not equal to the expensive paid departments the Northern cities a but the trouble with them has always been that their votes Are no absolutely a a solid for the administration ticket in elections. In other words they can to be counted like general Russia a slaves and a a indicators a although they have generally voted for King Bryan under the false impression that he was their Friend. Now Chancellor Lockwood said that he could get $40-per-month men better than they were and now he and King Bryan propose to show chief beefier and the balance the common dutch firemen that they moan business. A paid fire department will add at least one Hundred votes solid for our King and with their work and relatives will sum up nearly five Hundred votes for him. As our King no longer expects any the intelligent a Vest pocket vote a it puts him in a desperate fix and i think he deserves credit for his cunning As also for commencing so Early to fix things for the next election a besides he did no to want his new fire alarm system spoiled by such an ignorant set men As Are now running the fire department. The a vindicator so who will to employed by him can run it All right provided their new chief can speak Spanish fluently and this can be attended to in time. I Hope that the firemen who helped to elect our King Are More proud this act his than any other thing he has done. Let them give him a Crown. More anon. Dolly Vaiden.
