all the uncertainties of a strange new
thing, will be responsible for politics
rising earlier this year than at other
times. ; . ',; t , . -..V v ' ?
Even now Incumbents in the various
offices of the city, and county are con
sidering the coming campaign with-its
two elections the first election being
at the primaries, the second one, the
general election.;; And though so far

the matter seems to have been thrash

There appears now enly two or three
-officials who may not rurt and; even
in their ; cases the weight of opinion
- seems to be on the' ; side that they
will become', candidates -to: succeed
themselves. In one instance, , that of
Iho treasurer, Charles J. McCarthy, the
incumbent Is a receptive candidate for
a feweral posJLtloh,-that,of.collector-of 1
customs; here, ir he succeeds in his
candidacy he will of course step opt
of the treasurer' Job H, - i ". k i
John W. Cathcart, city and county
attorney, has not lormally said wheth
er or not he will run again, f Soirie
of his friends, who say that he has a

tice, feel that he will retire from, the
office with-the expiration of his pres-
enf. term. Others say" he will ; rnn

The ' primary election 1 will not be
held until the second Saturday of Sep
