Their stock is all entirely new, fresh and
seasonable, und will be sold at the most
reasonable price. We bespeak lor the
new firm a lair share ot patronage.
We this morning announce Capt.
W. P. Wright as a candidate lor Alder
man from the Third ward. This an
nouncement will meet the hearty ap
proval of a large majority of tho voters
ot the Third ward. Cant. Wright has
represented his ward in the council lor
the last lour year?, at,d during all that
time his co ur.-e has been consistent and
lair in ail things. On all questions w here
the Interests of the citizens have been at
stake. Capt. Wright has been found true
to his constitutents and th city at large.
We believe the voters of the ward rener
ally favor his re-election, and wo do
not anticipate that ho will have serious
opposition. Capt. Wright is familiar
with all the important questions that are
likely to come before the council during
tho next year, and we believe it would
be a bad move lor him to retire troiu the
council at this time.
