Under the proper head will be
found the announcement of Hon. C.
B. Simonton, who is a candidate for
re-election to Congress in this dis
trict. He eubmits his claims to the
peple of the District and will abide
by the action of the Democratic con

do at this juncture. The prwpect
now is that there will be several in
dependent candidates. If this is so,

and is in full sympathy with his party

Should he receive the nomination, we
will Bupport him with great pleasure.
Let every Democrat remember that
he is no disorganizer, but a true-blue
Democrat and patriot.
