Has Robert Koehler a life lease on the
office of citj clerkk? The republican
party evidently thinks he has.
Hon. Bkx T. Cable carried every
ward in the city last fall . What's the
matter with John Ohlwe;ler doing the
same next Tuesday?
The republican convention gave John
Evans its aanail drubbing last night.
Time tried republicans get very little
recognition these days,
McConochie. Koehler and Haas may
be strong in a republican convention but
a body of that character doesn't reflect
the opinion of the people.
Ths ticket nominated by last night's
convention not only sent shivers chasing
up and down The spinU column of the
rank and file of the republican party, but
H gave the weather a severe chi',1 as
That was a neat manner in which the
republican contention disposed cf Hamp
ton last ci:ht. It need Mr. Johnson's
name to kill oT the ex-alderman, and
when that was accomplished it slaugh
tered Mr. Joboson.
New York Star: Thomas Braekett
Retd will doubtless attract a good deal of
attention in Europe as the man who
bosped the congress which imposed an
average anauil burden of over f 3 on
every mac, wottan and child in the Uni
McConochie and Haas are evidently
bent on following ths never-bt go pla n
of Robert Koehltr. They want to mo
nopolize tbe fifties of mayor and attor
ney, respectively, for an indefinite teiiod.
Bro. Koehler has several years ths start
of them, however, and it i9 very probable
that the trio will be shelved next Tuesday.
The Australian balbt, system has been
adopted by Massachusetts, Rbole Island,
Vermont, Connecticut, Indiana, New
York, New Jersey, Maryland, Missouri,
Tennessseee, Michigan, Wisconsin, Min
nesota, Washington and Montana, and
locally, for municipal elections in Ken
tucky and two or three other states. Tbe
system is a good one. in the interest of
honest elections and should be adopted
by the legislature.of Illinois.
From the remarks in the convention,
of Messrs. Frick and Binnett, republican
candidates for assistant supervisors, it is
supposed they intend to run their cams
paign with sugir. It will take consider
able of this admixture, however, not
withstanding its sweetness, to convince
the people tnat Messrs. Burralland An-
pelquist wouldn't make more acceptable
members of the county boarJ.
St. Louis Republic: The report that
tbe Italian minister has assed bis paFS
ports and that American citizens bave
been seized is Italy as hostages is one
which demitds full consideration when
all the facts are fully apparent. It does
not seem at all probable that the Italian
government will resort to any other
measures than those of diplomacy for re
dress in any claim it may have against
this government But whatever its ac
tion, this country should not be put in
the attitude of t iking the aggressive. We
have no grievance againtt Italy and will
bave none unless Italy makes it. It
seems, moreover, that Minister Fava has
not demanded his passports, but has sim
ply presented his letters of recall. This
may or may not he indicative of a hostile
attitude on the part of his government
but it would be well to await develop
ments before getting excited.
