DR. A. S. BOWER.
Republican Candidate for the City "
Council From the Fifth Precinct
for the Short Term.
Dr. Bower, against his will, was In
duced to accept tho nomination from
tho Republicans for tho City Council.
Tho Doctor acceded from purely patri
otic motives, not because ho expected
or wished to make either pecuniary
gain or acquire special honors from
tho position. It Is highly desirable, in
tho interests of tho city, to havo at
least one scientific man on tho Alder

kill them. Dr. Bower is a germlst and
mlcroblst; that Is, ho is an enemy to
thoso Invisible things wo hear so much
about, and which cause so much hu
man suffering. Ho is also a man with
good, common, practical sense, and not js,
a theorist. Ho has very substantial In
terests In tho city and would bo a
most valuable all-round member of the
Our streets must be sprinkled prop
erly, and the city thus kept free from
dust, If we would have a healthy com
munity. WM. J. LYNCH.
WHY WAS "AMERICAN"
The great penny-a-llno orator,
Frank J. Cannon, had run out of a
party; something had to be done. Tho
Republican party, to which ho had
pledged himself, his honor and his un
dying loyalty, paid him in advance.
When ho found that ho was working
for a horse ho had driven to death,
In other words, to pay off a debt, his
heart failed him; ho made up his mind
to go Into business for himself. To
