B. Birkenfeld, ex-Alderman Simmon,
Julius Junge and John Blake seem to be
tbe favorites for democratic aldermanic
honors in the Fifth ward. Alderman
Kroi will be renominated by the republi
cans. The three political manipulators Mc
Conocbie, Koebler and Haas ate under
stood to have frequent conferences, at
which the principal topic of conversation
is: "W. F. Schroeder, the best and most
effective manner of disposing of him."
In the Second ward many democrats
would like to have the republicans nomi
nate Aid. Hetter and then pit Dave UUm
against him. In this contingency the
probabilities are that Ulam would get a
majority something similar to that re
ceived by Charles Durmann a year ago.
William Eckerman, tbe ex-mail carrier,
is mentioned as a suitable candidate for
township collector on the democratic
ticket. If the republicans can be pre
vailed upon to nominate Hampton, the
democratic nominee for collector will
have an aasy time of it.
In tbe Fourth ward many republicans
want C. F. Gaetjer to accept the repub

view of the way he was sacrificed in the
caucus last spring it is hardly probable
that he will allow his name to be used
