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.
