There Is a certain faction of the '
Republican party which Is deter
mined to have the second county con-.
vc-ntion, when candidates for county
,fllces will oe named, held prior to'
the' Republican Mate C nventlon in I
Date, for the Congressional conven
tions In Cook County will bo fixed
generally not later than the latter
part of June. That for tho First
District will be held tlr.st. The Con-1
gresslonal Committeemen of the Flrt
District are: Edwin Moril-, Thl d

Miillette, Thlrtj-llr-st: J. It Mann,

Thirty-third: Peter Sennit, Thirty

C. Kile from the country. This com

call the Congressional convention for

Is no opposition to Congressman

toeph J. Duffy Is the newest can
didate for the Democratic nomina

from Tuesday. Rut It ha already
been given a cheering reception by
the younger element of the patty.
He wa born In Chicago, and ha ill
waj lived here. He icsldcs now In
the Twentieth W.nd. He Is aeon
tractor, as his father before him was.
He has never held oillce, but has al

We violate no confidence In stating
that Hon. William E. Mason thinks
Henry Is a WullT.
One cannot escape 'the conviction
that if the Democratic candidate for
State Treasurer is selected from the
tanks of the Democracy outside of
Cook County Wulft will practically
have a walkover, but If the choice be
made from Cook County and a popu
lar German-American be taken the
result may b different.
On the Republican side the Pro
bate Clerkship has thus far brought
out but two pronounced candidates,
Thomas W. Scnnott of the Eleventh
and P. J. Cahlll of tho Twelfth

but one name Is mentioned Judge
C. C. Kohlsaat, who will undoubted
ly be nominated to succeed himself.
Daniel Kochersporger, of the Twenty-second
Ward, is practically alone
In the field as tho candidate for
County Treasurer. Some slight op
position is offered to Mr. Kocher
sporger in his own ward, hut his
friends are in control of the ward or

number of voters will be made about
equal In all tho wards.
For Sheriff Gcorgo Edmanson Is
still the cholco of many of tho lead
ers, and stands an excellent chauce of
leading the ticket. His record on the
County Hoard and his familiarity
with county affairs lead his friends
to think he Is as strong a man a
could be named. E. 3. Dreycr Is
talked of for Treasurer and Roger
Sullivan, Clerk of the Probato Court,
will be given tin County Clerkship if
he asks for it. Several of Congress

His friends urged him to go after
tho congressional nomination of tho
Fourth District, but ho prefers to re

he will have the support of tho Wulff
strength In the nominating conven

At tho conclusion of his present
term of oillce, six weeks hence, Alex
ander II. Rcvcll will retire from tho
School Hoard. When asked for his
reasons for miring Mr. Rcvcll replied
that he could not remain on tho board
and proporly attend to the duties
without neglecting his personal Inter
ests. Mr. Rcvcll said he had found
tho duties of watching the Interests
of tho children of Chicago most pleas
ant, and were It not for tho fact that
his time is to occupied with prlvato
affairs he would be moro than pleased
to remain on the board. During his
term of oillce Mr. Rcvcll has not
missed a meeting of tho School Hoard
save on one or two occasions, when
he was out of tho city. Among tho
achievements o'f Mr. Rcvcll while on
tho board was tho suggestion of the
plan of having a school-children's
week at tho World's Fulr with an ad
mission fee of 10 cents. Mr. Rcvcll
looks uron this as ono of tho most
pleasant achievements of his life

the department needs moro men for

tho chief's Idea that u few men aro
sufficient for detective duty; that no
man should bo detailed for such work
unless ho has seen service as a patrol
man; and that whenever extra men
for detective duty are required they
may best bo drawn from tho patrol

The only Republican candidate Tor
County Treasurer that seem 4 to be
making headway is Mr. Raymond.
The old-time Republican leaders seem
to bo with him strongly. Chris Ma

most of these men concerning Mr.
Raymond, when he said: "Sam Ray
mond ha4 done more hatd, earnest
work for tho Republican party than
any man 1 know In Chicago. He has
gone out among his friends In every
campaign - ,to collect money to
meet tho necessary expenses. Ho
litis canvassed, labored In com
mittee, served as , Chairman of
tho-CumpuIgn Committee, drudged
and fought for tho Republican party.
Such loyalty and -zeal deserve recog
nition, In my judgment, although 1
am not saying that I am for Sam
Raymond for Treasurer at that,"
whereat Mr. Mamcr laughed. It was
reported that ex-Aid. Elsfcldt, who
generally heads the Republican dele
gation from the Twentieth Ward,
had declared for Mr. Raymond, which
makes It look as though ho will have
tho support of all or nearly all the
North Sldo wards. Mr. Strnssiiclm,
