In our announcement column this

0. O. MoCullooh who is a candidate
for re-election to the office of mayor
of Waoo. Mayor rjMoCulloch was
elected two 3 ears ago over two popu

ity and took tho reins of munioipal
governor without pomp or trumpet
sound, but with a modest determina
tion to do his duly as mayor and let
tho peoplo judge. Mayor MoCullooh
has made an honest, consoientious ox
eoutive and is willing to sub
mit his record as mayor; his
offioial aotions on each and

WHAT WILL IT BE?
Primaries, Conventions, or a Freo-For-AU
I havo been talking with some of
tho boys from tho "Forks of tho
Creek." I gather from these caBual
talks that tho granger olomont of tho
Democraoy is disgusted with tho sys
tem of nominating by primary elec
tions. It is a matter of history that
primaries aro very unsatisfactory
Thoy aro thoroughly undeinoeratio
They aro conceived in iniquity and
havo for thoir basis principle rascality
and fraud. In their coancotion I will
state that more votes aro polled overv
two years in the Domooratin prima
ries, than aro polled at tho eeueral
elections For years tho oxeoutive
committee has boon instructed to call
a convention to make nominations
The convention instructing tho com
mittee has always boon a unit in tho
matter, oxoopt tho last county conven
tion, which went wild on prospeotivo
division in tho party, and if it was
lolt to tho same delogates today they
would instruot for a convention. Let
us return to tho old Domocratio way
of solccting our candidates, and tho
chances are that tho best qualified as
pirants will bo nominated and that
tho ohoicest of tho majority will bear
tho standard of tho party.
