There had been considerable hustling around among the faithful for several weeks to find a candidate who would cocsent to make the run for mayor and tho names of Wm. J. Wilson, Alfred Locke. Wm. T. Pope, and II. L. Van Benschoten had received considera tion. The ballot, however, settled tho 3uestlon and Mr. VanHenschoten was eclared the nominee. ''Van" didn't want the nomination but somebody must head the ticket and it was thought that a good natured lawyer would ac cept defeat at the polls with better grace than most any other person. Edward Meade received the most votes for city clerk and was declared the unanimous nominee The sentiment seemed to bo in favor of Willis D. Sinclair for treasurer and he was nominated. It was expected that Hon. Wm. J. Wilson, who has been the Democratic justice of the peac J for four years, elected when tho city was born, would be renominated without question, but complications of some sort entered in and he was tossed overboard without ceremony. Daniel Cameron was placed on the ticket to fill his place if elected. Frank Conn ell was placed on the tall of the ticket for school inspector. The ward nominations are as follows: FIRST WARD.

From Ionia Sentinel : Editor Sentinel: It is tho duty of every voter of Ionia county, to stand by our school commissioner in his re election. As was said by tho board of supervisors last fall in appointing tho janitor, "we cannot afford to educate a 11 new man each year." It is so with the commissioner of schools. A man in any profession, no matter what it is if he does his duty,in justice, should have a second term,and on this ground, wo certainly are under obligations to Mr. E. B. Hale. Ho has been a proficient commissioner, and his administration stands second to none with former commissioners. He has been tho means of a general revival in school interests and duties, and has given through his effors the best in spiration institutes ever held in Ionia county. Mr. Halo has also given asso ciations of teachers in every townshiu of the county and ha9 bv his inspiring enthusiasm made his might felt among theiteachers, which record will show for itself. Nearly, if not quite all of the teachers of the county endorse him. Each and every voter should go to the polls on April 0 without prejudice and without partisan bias and cast his vote for his own best interest and for the best interest of the people of Ionia county. In so doing they will make no mistake by voting for E. B. Hale. Teacher. POLITICS DON'T COUNT.
