Alderman Thos. W. Halllday is an
nounced this morning us a candidate for
re-election from the Fifth waid. It Is
hardly necessary lor us to refer to Mr.
llalliday as a member of the city coun

loui'ycars, and lias from the first been
one ol the most active, most energetic
and withal wisest alderman the city has
ever hail. J lo lias taken the lead on
nearly all iniportaut questions that have
come before the council, and he seldom
falls to carry his point, lie Is thorough
ly posted in the allalrs of the city, und
his services cannot well bo dispensed
with at this time. His course lias been
of suuh a character as to cause even his
opponents to regard him as a sort of
necessary evil" lu Iho council, and it is
altogether probable that he will be re
elected without opposition.
