The cost of the new church will be

pressed brick and is a beauty from
an architectural standpoint. It i
designed more after the style of

The edifice is provided with a large
basement, which is neatly finished
and furnished with seating accom.
modatlons. Here it is intended to
hold society meetings, socials, and
the like. At present aervices are be.
ing held in the basement.
The nave Baa a teetiEg capacity
of about one thousand. A balcony
extends along both aides of the wall,
adding considerable to the seating
accommodations and the interior
appearance. The choir loft is sta
tioned at the south end and joins
with the balcony on either side. The
walls and ceiling are artistically
frescoed, while at the rear and above
the altar is The Transfiguration in
fresco, all being the woik of Henry
Voege. of thia city. The church is
lighted by electricity from two large

another notable gift being one of $325

The altar and pulpit are of ash. and

works. The church was designed by

the construction of it. N. Juhl was
the contractor: Lerch & Greve did

Premature the strife may be. It
la aevertheiesa on; republicans are
girding their loins for the mayoralty
contest In the spring. 80 far nve
candidates have been announced for
the Domination, sad whetter with
or without consent, each it already
a factor in some sort of combination
of political ingenuity. Those spokee
oi up to date are. ex-Mayor William
McConochie, ex-Mayor Henry Cares,
ia. wuiiam Kennedy. Utty Attorney
J. L. Haasand George . Bailey. The
first named is already Involved ia a
quietly concocted elate, the other a
on which are CapU Hugh McDonald
tor clerk, and Frank Kelly for city
attorney, with the other places oa
the ticket still under consideration
Capt. McDonald has had aa aspira
tion for the office of city ciera ever
since he wss old enough to vote. He
was several years a candidate for the
nomination, and when he did ret tt
fonr years ago, he made all kinds of
sacrifices, even unto the surrender
of his then but newly achieved mil
itarv glories, to win, bat was
knocked out at the polls, neverthe
less. As fnr the city attorneyship,
Mr. Haas has said repeatedly ia the
past year that he would not be
candidate, and if he gives serious
consideration to the mention of hia
name for mavorthat would naturally
take him out of the field of those
mentioned for the municipality's le
gal adviser. Should he not aspire
to higher distinction, or snouia no
fail to attain that recognition, his
plans might, however, be changed.
Mr. Keily was a candidate two years
ago, and ia again now. Adair rieea-
ants is sbo stoktn of for the nomina
tion lor attorney.

There are many things this year
in particular mat are apt to enter
into the considerations preceding the
repo oncan nomination in the spring
The matter ot federal appointments
may cut something of a figure, and
hence the struggle for the mastery
in the mnnioipal situation will
involve, maybe, the fight for recog
nition before the powers that be at
no less a coort than the White House
