will nominate a clean, able, popular
candldato for Mayor a man possessing
public confidence, to whom tho voters
will bo very much Inclined to confido

to enter the senatorial fight." It is evi

finish between Senator Cullom and
some good Cook county man. Tho Iden

It seems that there Is it largo element
In tho Republican party which does not
Icok forward with delightful antlclpa
tlon to tho prospects of George B.
Swift's uuanlmous nomination us the
party candidate for Mayor. Opposition
to Mf. Swift Is said to bo springing up
nil over tho city, nnd It Is rumored that
thoro will bo soveral contestants for
the nomination before tbo Republican
convention. Amoug thoso mentioned

ois with Mr. Swift aro ox-Seuator Chas,
B. Farwell, of tho Twenty-fourth

tho Thirty-second Wnrd.
It has been announced that Represen
tative Edgar C. nawloy, of Kauo Coun
ty, has withdrawn from tho raco for
Republican candldato for Speaker of
tho Houso of the Illinois Legislature.
This news was freely discussed In the
Grand Pacific Hotel, whoro Republican
politicians nnd members-elect of tho
Goneral Assembly most do congregate.
Tho further statomout was made that
Mr. Hawloy had rotlred In favor of Mr.
Meyer, of Cook County. This uows
gave Mr. Moyer qulto a boom. His
frlcuds now claim that ho will certainly
bo nominated and elected Speaker by
tho Republicans. Thoy say they havo

will havo a walkover. Thoy do not see

J. W. Richards and others aro mention
ed ns Democratic possibilities. Mr.
Richards, It Is claimed, would havo tbo
solid support of the Hebrews and tho
traveling men, aud they would provo no
menu factor In tho campaign.
Tho announcement of Mayor Hop
kins' posltlvo withdrawal from the
Mayoralty race will undoubtedly cre
ate 'a revival of Interest In Democratic
politics, It having beeu generally con
ceded that Mr. Hopkins would rccolvo
a reuomlnatlon If ho so desired. Now
that ho bus retired from the race there
will bo a lively scouring up of rusty
armor aud a hurrying to and fro of as
piring Democratic lenders. It may bo
assumed that George B, Swift will bo
tho Republican nominee. It Is there
fore In order to find a Democrat who
cuu beat tho little West Sldo politician.
There Is a disposition to name a man
who will command tho support of the
reform clement aud nt tho samo time
ono whoso Democracy Is unquestioned.
Mr. Swift's record Is ono which may
commend him to politicians, but not to
that rapidly Increasing class of voters
which believes In radical municipal re
form nnd tbo subordination of partisan
spoils to tho material interests of tho
cay. There are several men In tho
Democratic ranks who would fill such
n requirement aud Mayor Hopkins him
self Indicates his preference for such n
candidate. With such u louder there Is
reason to bellovo that tho party could
easily defeat Mr. Swift If, howover,
tho gang element Is permitted to control
tho party organization and force a can
dlduto of Its own klud upon tho party
tho probabilities aro that' tbo Civic
Federation nnd kindred organizations
will placo an Independent muulclpal

prospect of electing tho entire Republi

courso, will bo Interested In procuring
tbo nomination of a gang candldato by
tho Democrats, and will aid In the ac
complishment of such a result by every
means In their power. If they flud that
they cannot induco tho Democrats to
do this thoro Is a strong probability
that Mr. Swift may be dropped.
Thoro is always a perceptlblo under

ranks that nftcr all Mr. Swift Is not
the most available candidate. As long
as Aid. Madden was in the field the In
trinsic fitness of either candldnto was
not analyzed or questioned. Now that
Mr. Swift has tho field to himself the
searchlight of public sentiment has
been turned upon him, nnd there Is
already talk of another candidate.
This will doubtless bo Intensified when
It Is known that Mayor Hopkins will
not be Mr. Swift's competitor In the
mayoralty race. It Is sajd that a move
ment Is on foot to bring ex-Senator
Charles B. Farwell Into the field. Sen
ator Fnrwcll lives in tho Twenty-fourth
Ward, nnd could start off with the sup
port of the entire North Division if be
chooses to enter the lists against Mr.
Swift The uamo of. John J. Knicker
bocker has also been mentioned, and It
Is not nt all Improbnblo that some other
man than Mr. Swift may receive the
Republican nomination. West Sldcrs
claim that Col. George R. Davis Is tho
strongest man that could be presented
from that section of tho city.
