MR. EDITOR: Please announce MAJ.
JOHN ALEXANDER as a candidate for
the office of Mayor of the city of Colum?
bia. Maj. Alexander is a property-holder,
and tins is one of tho great elementary
doctrines of the Democratic party-that
property-holders should bo elected to
office. Tho Democratic press baa been
opposed to the great majority of tho mem?
bers of the so-called Legislature of this
State becauso they were non-property-1
holders; therofore, tho friends of Maj.
Alexander propose his name, and know I
that he has friends enough to elect him if
he will consent for his name to bo used iu [
the canvas:.'. Maj. Alexander is the com?
ing man, and will bo cortainly elected.
No clique, composed of packed clubs, but
one of the people's choice.

'?f IFE IN8URANCE enables a man to
I J put himself in harmony with Di?
vine Providence. Providcmco has brought
tho institution into hoing lo bless tho
rs ce. Ho who refuses it, distrusts and
despises Providence and invites its von
goancc upon himself and his household.
Wo know ot no fallacy BO transparent, no
delusion moro grouudless, than that
which makes tho practice of Lifo Insnranco
appear as an attempt to controvert tho
Thousands of widows and orphans livo
to attest tho divino beneficence of LIF^E
INSURANCE. Without its protecting
aigis, many of them would, to-day, bo beg?
gars upon the streets, or occupants of
poor-houses and penitentiaries. No man
can foretell what will bo bis circumstances
at thc time of his death. The rich man of
to-day dies tho panpor of to-morrow, and
tho family, delicately reared, bocomo tho
unprepared victims of dire Want, with her
train of countless evils. Such a result ia
imjiossible, with a policy of Life Insurance,
It, indeed, offers the only absolutely safe
investment which can be made for tho
benefit of ono's family aud of his own old
age. All other investments may result in
less or ruin. If all would insure, who can
calculate tho immense suffering and crimo
which the world would be spared!
