Theie can be no doubt as to who
wtote these items. It was W. G. How -ells,

How ells was falily and honestly de
feated for the nomination foi buigess
on the Republican ticket bj an over

he whines. If How ells had lecelved
the nomination, would he say one woid

The present contest Is for the ofllce
of butgess and not foi the salaiy, for
It tests with the borough council to fix
