six, thus asFurine fcejond all reasonable
doubt tie mayor's renominktion it to
night s convention. Aid. Scbroeder. the
only other aspirant for the nomination,
was practically fnoei ut of siefct. the
Seventh ward alone lowing him com
miREeralion. A republican's review of ihe
delegations indicates that tonight's ticket
will be about as follows:
For Mayor William McConochie.
For City Clerk H. C. Scbaffer.
For Attorney Caarlea Searle.
For Treasurer J. F. Robinson.
On the township ticket UamptoD ap
pears to be the first choice, the scheme
being, if he is tot nominated on the first
ballot to drop biaa and nominate
Charles Johnson, Sucden, Munger and
Evais being "out of sight" as
far as a nomination is concerned. W.
W. Stafford may share the honors with
Jefcnsnn as a dark horse, though this is
not probable Clekcd is the nominee
for usstssor. acl Supn visor Frick aud
Willifcm Levey iil probably be
the nominees for tuptrvi:ors. Ac
cording to this lay out the McConochie
combine, includine.Koehler and IIiis. is
to t e busted, the mayor having, as the
result of the caucuses, dropped his old
colleagues for the new associates, which,
according to the caucus dictations, are
more essential to his success individually
in ftcurirg the nomination. Thus the
o d friends ate to be dropped by ihe
mayor for the new.
The reports of the various ward cau
cuses are given in detail:
"PutnoLe but McConochie men on
guard tonight," was the warning whis
rered about among the faithful at the
First ward caucus last night. Long be
fore the caucus opened the loyal ones
were passing prepared lists of delegates
and promptly at 7:30 Ward Committee

to order. Andrew A. Johnson wa nom

Tnen a line of voter was formed and
marched in lock step around the hose

cur l over the hat to see thu no corrup

lots were counted it was found to be a
clean sweep for the McConochie contin
gent, and silent mouthings were heard .i

Martin Frick for aseistant supervisor,

of a click, that it was vailed before time,

ward as chairman, and delivered a' short
and fat valedictory with his usual fervor.
William Rinck acted as secretary and

as vard committeeman.
The caucus organized by electing Wil

Lo?ley secretary. The faithful seemed
to be all at sea as to who should be nom

Ben. Hartz, and Mr. Collins was pre
sented by some admirer in the rear of
the bouse. Collins didn't want to
be sacrificed, however, and he
declined. when Charles Hodgson
presented Capt. Peetz. The captain
promptly followed the sensible example
of Mr. Collins, when Locksmith Fiebig
with the same ingenuity he exercises in
conquering a stubborn lock, prevented
a stampede by moving that Mr. Hartz be
nominated by acclamation. This was an
