John Mayer is whooping it up in great

The Union sneeringly insinuates that
Pet sr Phitebar, democratic candidate for
assistant supervisor, should not be
elected because he works in Moline. That
may. In the mind of the Union, be a
reason why Mr. Philebar should not be
eleced, but it don't count with the masses
of the people especially when contrasted
with the circus man from nowhere, who
isrtnning against Mr. Philebar. The
other fellow isn't in it.
Tle Union feels called upon to apply a
erear, many superlative adjectives to the
republican nominee for alderman in tbe
Foutth ward, and to say that he has the
citj'f b8t interests at heart, etc. It may
be difficult to reconcile Collins' idea of
the best interests of the city, with bis con
duct in the council in many instances, one
in particular when he came all the way
from Kansas, then practically bis home,
to vo e and scheme against the best inter
ests of some of our citizens living on

the Ution said Gamble was dMng "the
best kind of electioneering," the Union
of this morning now says he is "subject
to orders as a subordinate." Alas! haw
great are the differences under which
this G imble works. When he is doing bis
duty ha ought to have all the credit, he is
not a subordinate then and should receive
votes in pay for it, but when he neg
lects tl e same duty in a district where
there are not so many voting people, then
be is subordinate to somebody else and
himself blameless. The Union is getting
somewhat tangled up, isn't it?
