VOLUME SLIII.-NO. 26.
WHO WILL BE COUNTY CHAIRMAN Several More Men are Anxious for Office. IT IS FAIRLY LUCRATIVE. Henry Lehrmann May Not Run as Sheriff. HE LIKES HIS PRESENT PLACE. It is Said he Will Take it Attain if he Can Get it —Louis P. Grimm and J P. Nolan in the Field. Since the announcement of P. J. Conway’s candadacy for the chairman ship of the County Board several other men have come to the front and now seek the honored place. Louis P. Grimm, of (trimmons. should he he re-elected to a place on the Board of County Supervisors has aspirations tor the position of chairman. When Mr. Maertz retired from the chairmanship last autumn Mr. Grimm was one of the first in the field to succeed him, but owing to the fact that the vote was prettv evenly devided between Jos. Finch, of Liberty, and Mr. Grimm, Henry Lehrmann was enabled to capture the prize. It is rumored that Mr. Lehrmann, who was talked of for the place of sheriff may not run for the office, but that he would like to continue as county chairmanship. It is further more said that Mr. Lehrmann may make the race for sheriff in two years hence. Just who will Iw county cnairman seems problematical. One candidate for the snpervisorahip in the city would like to he countv chairman, but the rural members of the board are very much opposed to pushing any city man for the place and the aspirant is likely doomed to defeat. Later—J. p. Nolan, the newly elected supervisor from the Third ward of Manitowoc, will a candinate for the chairmanship of the County board. It has alwsvs been t) e custom t' l o’“Ct a member from the country and if Mr. Nolan is elected it will be the first time that the city U thus honored. Mr. Nolan has bad usual experience as a supervisor. Before removing to the city, he served for fourteen years in the capacity of supervisor from the town of Maple Grove. During five years he was county chairman. Mr. Nolan thus brings to the office a .vide and ex tensive experience whii h ought to make him an especially able official should he be elected to the chairman ship. Whether he will be able to over come the popular prejudice prevailing against the election of a city supervise r remains to be seen. THE PILOT DOSEN’T TAKE MONEY FOR MAKING FALSE STATEMENTS. The Pilot has received the following communication from a voter in the township of Liberty. To the editor— “ Since the caucus which was held in this town, there has been lots of excitement about the officers. It seems that when a man gets an office he'll run for it every year, and he is not willing to let someone else have a chance. Some of the old officers who have held on for about live years claim they will not give it up unless thev are kicked out. and be sides they make a statement that the Pilot was paid to print false reports, about raising the taxes in this town.

CITY ELECTION RATHER QUIET Democrats Elect Five Out of Seven Alderman. council is strongly democratic. Many Tickets Split- People Show Independent Attitude. THE RESULTS GIVEN IN DETAIL Plumb in the Second, and the Entire Ticket in the Seventh Meet no Opposition. The city election passed off very quiet ly. The results in general show Demo cratic gains, yet it is hardly claimed that such gains are the result of a party policy. The vote indicates very clearly that the people of Manitowoc are not influenced by a man’s politics v :en choosing a city official. The candi date's ability—his moral and intellectual qualities - count for a great deal more than does his adherence to a national party. In all the wards except the seventh two tickets were in the field. The can didates nominated at the Democratic caucus in the Seventh ward met with no opposition. The results by wards are as follows:- Miss Alma. Thompson left for Kiel Tuesday afternoon having spent Easter with her mother. Mrs. Jos. Schneider who was a guest of Chicago friends last week, returned Monday. Miss Addie Mendlek was at Two Rivers to attend the Library ball which was held Wednesday evening. A Linen Shower was given at the home of Mrs. Banzhaf’s Monday after noon for Miss Mayme Kelly whose marriage to Mr. M, Ryan, of Escanaha, takes place next Wednesday.

It is said that no other school in the state turns out students who average so high in scholarship as does the West Division The discipline of the school is almost ideal. The excellence of the school and the splendid reputation it enjoys are due to the executive qualities of its princi pal ('has. E. McLenegan. Prof. Mc- Lenegan is a type of the school master who believes that tin* school dots much for its students by de manding much from them, and re sults certainly seem to warrant his conclusions. The demands that the school makes are often considered a trifle severe, but the boys and girls that it turns out in consequence are a pride to the school and its teach ers, and to Milwaukee at large WISCONSIN SPIRITLIIST Will HOLD CONVENTION IN MILWAUKEE* The Wisconsin State .Spiritualist Association will hold its second annual convention in Milwaukee, April 15, U! and 17, in Lincoln Hall, on (sth street, near Grand Ave. Headquarters have been established at the I’lankinton House and moderate rates secured The Rev.
