Optimistic democracy went out
on Lake St. Clair, Thursday after
noon, to fire the first gun of the
city and county campaign. The
steamer Pleasure never before held
such an enthusiastic crowd, and u
a thousand throats cheered the seo
tlments of distinguished party men
who told how Judge William F. Con
nolly, as mayor, would reclaim the
city of- Detroit from her naughty
tendencies, the commanders of pass
ing leviathans caught the echoes and
shrieked aalutea with the same vig
orous abandon that characterized
the proceedings aboard the ferry.
The lid waa off, and sandwiches and
mild refreshments divided Interest
with a vaudeville program prellml
nary to the speechmaking.
On the upper deck Shook's or
chestra gave lively Interpretations
of popular airs, Interspersed with
greatly appreciated vocal selections
by the gifted trio from the Griswold
House cafe—Ous Bertram, Bryant
Huff and H- B Thomas.
Then Dick Lynch got everyone
Into hilarious good humor by relat
ing several of his Irish dialect sto
ries.

John Nagel, chairman of the city
committee, made a brief review of
Judge Connolly's political career,
and of his many sacrifices in the
Interest of the party.
