Every indication point, to the belief
that there would bo blood on the face of

in the heaven, early enough to shed it

For several years there haa been no such
uncertainty and foreboding in the re

Even the most astute political wiseacres
confess their inability to conjecture the
probable outcome of the caucuses.
In the First ward the republicans are
at a loss to know whether to chose ex

The Third, always a thorn in the side
of the republic ins, is a deep cave of
gloom, metaphorically speaking, for the
republicans this year. They have made
some desperate efforts to carry this
stronghold of democracy in the past few
years, but they have not even the faint
est hope of coming anywhere near the
goal of success this spring. In fact, it i
doubtful if Ibey can scare up a candidate,
as no republnfirj has so farshovn any in
clination that he cares to be led to the
slaughter. The ward committee is said
to have been out skirmishing last niirbt
In a vain t.ltempl to induce somebody to
run. Among those visited are said to be
Supervisor Rinck. W. A Guthrie and F
(' Hemenway. Sad to relate, all em
phatically refused. Ttie best thing the
republicans of the Third can do is to en
dorse the democrat ' candidate, whoever
he my be.
In the Fourth indications have all
alons: pointed to C F. Oaetjor, but there
is opposition to him in some quarters. and
there will be an effort made to defeat
him. YV. P. Tindall, the liveryman and
Dr. C. B. Kinyon are mentioned a Ml
