The convention to assemble to-night
should be very careful in the selection of
a candidate lor mayor. It will uot do
to nominate a weak aud unpopular man,
for if such a man receives the nomination
It will jeopardize and even render the
success ot the ticket extremely doubtful.
The candidate lor mayor should be well
versed In the affairs ot the city, aud a
man whose Interest is such as to warrant
a faithful discharge ot the duties of the
office should he be elected.
Iu the selection of candidates for al
derman the convention should be careful
and see to it that, the men who are the
most deeply interested in the affairs ot
the city, and who will give to the duties
ot the position "a reasonable elure of at'
tentlon are put on the ticket. The selec
tion of candidates tor alderman will not
be the least Important question thai will
come belore tue convention, and Hie
nominations should be mado only after
weighing the claims and availability cf
the candidates thoroughly.

Among the names likely to be present
ed to the convention to-night, are for
mayor, T. XV. Halliday, Dr. XV. R. Smith
B. F. Blake, A. II. Irvin, R. H. Cun
iiii:gliam, and perhaps others. With
either of the gentlemen abovo named the
party would doubtless be successiul.
They are all good men, and cither of
them would make an excellent mayor.
For city treasurer Messrs. Stockflcth
and Parker are tho only known candi
dates. Mr. Stocktietb, who has
served as treasurer during the
last year, has made a faithful and effi
cient officer. Mr. Parker has been a
member of the city council for two years,
and has served acceptably to bis constit
uents. We will be satisfied with either
candidate. Tor city clerk, Mr. Jas. -W.
Stewart and Fred. Smith are in the Held.
Both are good and reliable men, and fully
competent to disckarge the duties ol the
clerk's office. Candidates lor police
magistrate are numerous, and pcihaps
the names of no less than flye persons
will be presented to the convention.
Judge Bross, Richard Fitzgerald, Thos.
Lewis, Mr. Osborn and Charley Delay
are aspirants for this position, but tho
contest in the convention will doubtless be
between Judge Bross and Mr. Fitzgerald.
Either ot them.would fill the office ac
ceptably. For city attorney W. Q.

Here is another warning that to "fool"
with lire arms is dangerous. Tb steward
at the St. Charles hotel is the owner of a
pistol an old-fashioned, single barrelled
Derringer. Yesterday afternoon while
at work in the dining room, he took
the pistol out ot his pocket aud laid it on
one of the wiudows, and when his work
was done went off and left it there
Shortly after two or three of the girls
entered the room to sweep and clean j
up. While the work was going
on tho girls got to "cutting up"
aud chasing each other about the room
and in the course of their sport one of
them lound the old pistol, and picked
It up, uud iu a playful manner threatened
to shoot her pursuer, nod suiting the ac
tion to the word, poluted it at ;her and
pulled the trigger. To her surprise and
horrorjit went ofl.the ball missing the gir
to whom it was pointed bnt a few inches,
and striking one cf the stoves was flat
tened out like a nlckle.
Mr. Egnew and the clerks
who were in th ofrlce, bearing the report
went Into the room to see what tba mat
ter was. When they entered the room
they lonnd the 'girls sitting oa the floor,
