THE AHGUS, SATURDAY MARCH 10, 1907.
IS RISING RAPIDLY
The Political Temperature De
veloped During the Pres
Citizens and Republicans Working
Hard The McCaskrin Idea of
i3XLTERY OF CAMPAIGN CANDIDATES
Rival Nominees for the Mayoralty.
A distinct rise in the political tem
perature lias been manifest (luring the
week, a tendency that will without
doubt become even more apparent as
the campaign progresses.
Events have been rapidly shaping
themselves in the last few days and
after next Monday, when the time for
tiling nominating petitions expires, the
battle will be on in earnest. Public
meetings will be held day and night
in various parts of the city.
The democratic nominees for alder
men. John Holzhamnier in the First
ward. Henry C. Wehling in the Second,
W. C. Maueker in the Third. Valentino
Dauber in the Fourth. William Trefz
and James Van Arsdel in the Fifth, and
('. C. Wilson in the Sixth, are working
liard and meeting with encouragement
everywhere. There is every indication
that full city and township demoratie
tickets, had they been nominated, would
have met with similar commendation.
In the absence of a democratic city
ticket, the one put up by the Citizens'
Nonpartisan association is putting forth
every effort to become a strong factor
in the race. The campaign publication
of the association made its appearance
today and was delivered to every part
of the city, gratuitously. It Is known
as The Citizen.
The republican party is beating the
bushes and leaving nothing undone to
hold tin." party in line.
While Peanut. Dick has captured the
appellation of "independent" to desig
nate his candidacy, petitions for the
McCaskrin-made ticket announce that
it will be known as the "independent
I'lnr lilrn of Civil S-r Ire.
The campaign has progressed even
now far enough to show that the pres
ent mayor, despite all his talk about
civil service, is showing the existence
of the worst kind of a political machine
in the exhibit tliat is paraded of city
employes circulating his petitions.
Practically every man regularly em
ployed by the city, outside of street
laborers, has become a bearer of a pe
tition, though a number are in open re
bellion, and even threaten resignation.
Tiiusu of public buildings to advance
the present mayor's candidacy is an
other distinctly McCaskrinistic phase
of the campaign.
Tile hundreds of former .McCaskrin
adherents all over the city that have
deserted him and are meeting his ap
proaches for more votes and his cam
paign of self-praise ami abuse of oth
ers, with cries of "hot air," is proving
a distinctive feature of the campaign.
