McCaskrin Congressional Candidacy

A little man with a little muck rake
appeared on Market square Saturday
evening in the interest of his congres

gathered about him to hear his denun

to be that ofMcers under the fee system

It seems to be galling him yet. So
Mayor McCaskrin would henceforth
have the state's attorney put on a sal

sional issue is hard to tell, and it seems
that he has simply taken up a matter
that has been urged in the leading
newspapers of the state, including The
Argus, times without number. While
