WHAT'S THE MATTER
WITH. THE FIRST?
What's the matter with the
First municipal ward? Accord
ing to the Tribune it elected
three very bad men as its rep
representatives in the city coun
cil. Their lives, according to
the Tribune and the Tribune is
their own organ and ought to
know, are stained with secret
crimes known to the police, ana
they are in mortal fear of the
police. The Tribune's charges
against those men which it
helped to elect are made to
some extent by innuendo, but
the references are so plain there
is no mistaking who it means.
The Tribune, if it were not a
coyote sheet, would come out
in the open and state plainly
what the charges against those
councilman are. It knew just
as much about those men when
it advocated their election as
it does now, and it might ex
plain why it painted them as
pure and spotless as the lily
then and now as black as Satan.
The First ward, it would ap
pear, can neither be congratu
lated on its allegiance to the
"American" party nor on the
quality of the men it chose to
represent it in the council.
Senator Hopkins of Illinois, in hi?
race for re-election, has struck an
element of strength he probably was
not counting on; that is, he has en
countered the opposition of one F. T.
Dubois. Everybody opposed by the
latter has invariably pulled through.
There is one slright and direct ad
mission which the Tribune's assault
on Captain Burbidge has brought out;
that is that the McWhirters were
robbed and that Sheets and Raleigh
knew of the robbery. Up to very
recently the Tribune denied that there
had been a robbery
The Tribune has a special from

The "Ainerikcarns" party is making
a herculean effort to pull itself to
gether. A month ago it was thor
oughly demoralized, but the better
element of the party is trying to re
cruit the scattered forces and relegate
to the rear those who they hold re
sponsible for the disasters which
came upon it.
It is very questionable whether
those democrats who desire the demo
cratic concvention to name Mayor
Bransford as their candidate will suc
ceed. A strong wing of the party
wants ex-Mayor Morris to become a
candidate, while others are talking of
W. M. Kerry, notwithstanding that he
is an "American" party man.
W. J. Bryan, while on the way to
Rockford, 111., to fill a lecture en

such circumstances it is better than
the ability to run.
Evidently the moral earthquake fol
lowing the physical one at San Fran
cisco is likewise no make-believe or
half-way affair. It started in at the
right place and in the right way at
the top. The mayor that was, ii
tagged for San Quentin and a lot of
his lieutenants are likely to continue
in his company. Salt Lake has also
had a tremblor of less consequence,
but some good results have followed.
Roderick McKcnzic is a good Scotch
name, a name that inspires confi
dence and in the case of the new Jiicf
of police we arc satisfied the confi
dence is not misplaced. While Mr.
McKcnzic is neither a Hawkshaw nor
a Sherlock Holmes it is fully believed
he will administer the affairs of his
office with the utmost integrity and
with ability. He won't make any
mistake either by taking Captain Bttr
bidge into his full confidence.
Harry Keate was up from his Mil
ford home yesterday, having previous
ly returned from the Dixie oil fields,
where he has some large and good
holdings. He is devoting the greater
part of his time to this industry, and
naturally sees something ahead or he
couldn't afford to do it. Harry is
and has been for some years a promi
nene business man of Milford, and is
very sure that those who are in on
the oleoginous fields have something
in the business line that will last them
a long time and yield returns right
along. Capitalists and capital are
drifting in every day and still the
country is not all occupied.
