A. Harris, C. T. Wernecke and J. C. Hunt
were appointed a committee to suggest
the names of two eligible citizens of the
ward as candidates for aldermen, and
also attend the city convention to be held
at democratic headquarters this evening
at half past seven o'clock.

unanimously nominated aldermen.

held at the Milwaukee house. Judge
Race acted as chairman. The following
aldermen were nominated: D. R. Mitch
ell, Geo. W. Pence, Wm. Winters and

gentlemen were nominated delegates to
attend the convention: John Gerin, J. D.

However it is sincerely hoped that good
men will be elected. Whoever receives
the mayoralty of Great Falls, may feel
proud of the distinction and honor con
ferred upon him, and know that to be
mayor of a young metropolis with such
resplendent prospects as has Great Falls,
is to fill a by-no-means insignificant
