opinion that the most Important of
tlcc, from a party standpoint ntleast,
to he tilled by next fall's election, Is
that of County Court .Hi.tiro. There
Is not a dissenting voice to the prop
tuition that Mr. Knickerbocker
would be the man for tho place, and
the fat that ho hns announced him
self willing to accept the nomination,
If tendered to him, has created a
great deal of satisfaction in Repub
lican clrclc-i. It Is admitted now on
all sides that Mr. Knickerbocker
will beyond doubt receive tho nomi
nation In the convention next Fri
day, and It It believed that within a
nhort period the other gentlemen
who have been candidates will retire
In favor of this able and popular
James Conroyd. a bicycle manu
facturer, and an old-time Republican,
Is being urged for County Commis
sioner by the labor organizations.
So also Is E. I). Connor, of the Fifth
ward, and William Mill, a printer.
All three are good men. Anyof them
would make a good Commissioner.
At the regular meeting of tho Lin-na-us
Club, composed or residents of
the Twenty-llfth and Twenty-sixth
Wards, held Friday evening at. 1030

The Republicans of the Eleventh
Ward arc emphatic In their indorse
ments for the retention of Commis
sioner McNIchols on tho Board of
County Commissioners. Numerous
largely attended and enthusiastic
meetings have been held In the gen
tleman's Interest during tho last
week, particularly In tho Eleventh
and adjoining wards, where the gen
tleman Is best known and where his
qualifications are appreciated.
For Sheriff many names havo been
mentioned. Through it nil, however,
two or three men havo continued to
be named. James l'oase, of Lake
View, Is strongly in tho lead, provi
ded the County Treasurershlp goes to
Mr. Kochorspcrger or to nny part of
the city except tho North Side. Mr.
Poaso Is the Assessor of Lako View,
Is a member of the Republican Stnto
Central Committee, and a Republi
can worker who Is noted for his un
ceasing serTlco for tho party. Char
ley Gross, of the Thirty-second Ward,
hopes to be tho nominee for Sheriff
If the Treasurershlp goes to Mr.
Raymond or a North or West Side
S. W. Ridcrburg is being strongly
supported for tho Republican noruln
Inatlon for County Clerk by the
Swedish pcoplo and press of Chicago.
Ills nearly eight years of servlco as
chief under County Clerk Wulff have
secured for him very enthusiastic In
dorsements from the Hcmlandct, the
Swedish Tribune, and tho Swedish
American, and his general fitness is
recognized by his fellow:countrynjcn
and many others. At a meeting of
tho Swdish-Amcrlcan Central Repub
lican Club, held Tuesday last, reso
lutions were adopted indorsing Mr.
Itlderburg, and appointing a commit

Republicans say their party ought
to pay some attention to tho Fifth and
Sixth Wards in the making up or a
ticket. Notwithstanding the loyal
and effective work accomplished for
their party, the Republicans have
given no principal ofllco to this sec
tion of tho city during tho past
twenty years. That they realize the
necessity of doing so this fall is
evinced by the fact that thu leaders
of tho party are almost to a man in
favor of nominating that generous,
loyal, and hard-working young Re
publican, Ernest J. Magorstadt, for
Clerk of tho Probato Court. That
his selection would bo u wise one
from a party standpoint is conceded
on nil sides.
No more popular Gorman lives on
tho South Side than Ernest J. Magcr
stadt, tho Fifth Ward coal man.
Everybody knows Mr. Magorstadt; he
is a Republican to tho back-bone,
nnd though only 2!) years old ho has
already como to bo recognized as no
mean power In the Republican party.
Mr. Magorstadt was horn in Ger
many', coming to America whon six
months old, und for twenty-eight
years ho has been a resident of the
Fifth Ward. Fourteen years ago ho
embarked In the coal business, and
has In this manner obtained so lucra
tive un Income that ho has never
been a seeker after public office, sim
ply contenting himself with working
Industriously for tho nominees of his
party. Ho Is a loader in his ward,
and as the roprcscntatlvo of tho
business and worklngman clement,
has stamped out tho old-fogy clique
that made It up-hill work for the
"grand old party" so many years In
that particular district. Mr. Magor
stadt is married to a daughter of
Louis Hutt, and beyond his political
labors Is one of tho most staid and
deliberate men Id tho buslnoss world.
Theso qualities, coupled 'with his
reputation as a party supporter
and his well-earned popularity
with the masses of both parties as a
champion of tho respectable element,
have brought him Independent fame.
He it was who led Henry Uest- to
success and tho South Town Super
vlsorshlp when the rest of the ticket
was defeated, and he directed, tho
campaign of tho only successful Re
publican Aldcrmanlc candidate from
the Fifth. For three years ho has
been County Central Committeeman
from his ward, and he was tho young
est delegate to tho recent national
convention. Mr. .Magorstadt Is a
member of tho Masortlc Dearborn
Lodge, Past Chief Ranger of Apollo,
I. O. F., nnd a member of McCIcllan
Council, National Union.
Twelfth Ward Rspubllcans seem
to bo unanimously In favor of A. O,
Cooper for Clerk of tho Probato
Couit, and claim they will give him
tho solid dolcgation In tho conven
tion. Mb, Cooper is a well-to-do
wholcMilo tobacconist located nt 11(11)
West Taylor otrcdt, and Is ono of tho
most actlvo lolltlcil factors of tho
West Side, llo has few c nil's as a
platform xrcakcr. Ho has boon well
known In politics for seventeen years
nnd more, llo has always bzen a
Htanch Ropulillcau and Is now tho
President of tlio Twelith Ward Re
publican Club, lie Is tho promoter
and originator, in fact, of tho Chi
1CM00 Uadisan St.,
cago public night schools. He Is
prominent In many societies, notably
tho Royal Arcanum, and would prove
a decided strength to the Republican
Christopher Strasshclm now thinks
that his chances for getting the Re
publican nomination for County
Trensurer wore never better. His
friends arc busy In hln behalf and tho
claims mado by Mr. Raymond's
friends that they would carry the
Twenty-fourth Ward were fully dis
cussed by a meeting held in tho third
primary district in the ward, with tho
result that Mr. Strasshclm was as
sured that tho entire ward delega
tion would lie with him In tho con
vention. The Twentieth Ward will
also be for Strasshclm. Tho pcoplo
and most of the leading workers have
been for him from tho first. North
Town Supervisor Efsfeldt was the
only prominent Republican of tho
ward accounted a Raymond man, and
ho declares ho wns for Strasshclm be
fore Raymond became a candidate,
and that the ward will bring in n
solid delegation for him.
At a meeting of tho Thirteenth
Precinct Republican Club of tho
EIccnth Ward, held at No. 414 West
Madison street Friday evening, June
15, James B. Campbell, President,
nnd William Smith, Secretary, tho
following resolution was passed:

Hon. T. E. Ryan has long been
noted forho case with which he
gets a nomination for ofilco, henco
Frank Lawlcr's kick ugalnst the call
for tho Democratic convention ot the
Fourth Congressional District does
not count. Tho convention will bo
held July .1, nnd from present indica
tions Lawlcr will .not get tho nomi
nation which ho seeks. Ex-Assessor
Ryan Is ma King a lively contest
against him. At t meeting of the
Nineteenth Ward Regular Demo
cratic Club hold at Horan's Hall
Tuesday evening our Frank was
hardly accorded a hearing and Ryan
was Indorsed unanimously. There
was a big turnout and Lawler was
much disappointed at tho outcome.
Ryan's friends claim the Ninth and
Twelfth Wards, desplto the efforts of
Lawlcr's friends In this direction.
They do not care for Lawler,
but they fear he will run as an
independent and give trouble.
Rudolph McGutro Patterson, of the
First Ward, Is considered sure for a
placo on the Republican County
Commissioners' tlckot. Ho Is in the
real cstato business. Mr. Patterson
Is strong with the labor people. ,A
born orator, ho has been ono of the
principal speakers at till labor gath-
Ings in this city for years.
It is everywhere admitted that tho
Democratic ticket put up last weok
Is a strong ono. Peabody appeals
strongly to tho young voters. Oehne
will bo hard to beat. Neither Koch
erspergcr nor Raymond would reach
within 10,000 of his vote. Rogor C.
Sullivan is popular and a phenomenal
vote getter. Gcorgo Edmonson has
an Immenso following, and tho Coun
ty Commissioners' ticket Is excep
tionally strong throughout. The
Democrats are much more hopaful
now than before the convention.
