There ftui to be a determination on
the part of a great many ot the most
prominent and influential citizens of the
city and eouuty that Mr. Thos. W. ilulli
day shall allow his name tu bo used in
connection with oltlce ol county com
niifsloncr. It Is well-known, how
ever, that Mr. HuUiday does not
desire the oltlce, and would much
rather support some other good
man for the place thun to have it him
sell. A faithlul discharge of the duties
ol the oltice of county commissioner en
tuils upon the incumbent particularly
if that Incumbent is a resident ol the city
a great deal of labor, and requires much
time and attention; in lact, much more
time and attention than tnot men are
willing to devote to It. Mr. Haliiday is
an untiring worker in whatever position
he is placed, and to this fact and to
the knowledge of his eminent fit
ness for the oflke wc aM.-ribc the
desire of i-o many citizens of the
county to vote lor him. As we said
above, it is known that Mr. Haliiday does
not seek, nor want, tho oflice; but we be
lieve that if the people desire him to
serve them, and it he can be assured that
he can be elected without being com
pelled to go into the business ol
soliciting votes, in other words,
that if he can bo elected without
having to make a canvass tor the
office, he will not refuse to become a can
didate. Alter looking the field all over, and
having conversed with citizens from all
p:;rts of the county on the subject, wc
are convince J that Mr. Hallidiy is tlie
proper man lor the phce, and il he will
consent to become a candidate he will

letting tho keeping of the poor farm out
to the lowest and best bidder, the county
has lor years prist paid on nn average

upwards ol two thousand dollars to main

expended on nccount of paupers in Cniro
and In other portions ot the county. Mr.
Summons' plan is to employ a
competent person at a stated
salary to take charge ot the poor li.rin,
and that the commissioners appoint one
of tlieir own number to act as a purchas
ing agent, whose duty it shull be to pur-
chase all supplies, clothing, etc., for Hie
paupers at the poor farm. Mr. Summons'
claims that a saving of not less than
$1,200 per annum can he made if his
plan is adopted, Mr. Summons
will bring tho subject before the
commissioners at their next meeting,
which occurs ou November lUth

ot which Is that it would open upon ave
