lights will be expected to march to
the polling places next Wednesday and
cast their votes merely a matter of
formality. The First ward session
was held at Bibb's store. It was called

Fine City-County Combine.
While the republicans of the Second
ward thought they had gotten Deputy
Circuit Clerk Bonev Johnson off the
track for the aldermanic nomination
in that ward, it is now stated he has
linally determined to strive to re
tain his stat in the city council
un top ot trn comes the an
nouncement that Deputy Sheriff 1-
A. Andrews will make, another effort
to secure a certificate in the Third
ward, he having entered the race for
the republican nomination, and it is
not impossible that Deputy County
Clerk Johnny Rinck may be brought
out in the hourlh ward as a republican
aldermanic candidate. If a few more
of the deputy county oflice-holders
distributed over the city could be in
duced to come out for aldermen and
their election made possible, it would
come pretty near to combining the
city and county governments.
