DEPUTY CANNING STEPS OUT Sheriff Cousins Objects to His Candidacy for Office of Sheriff. CANNING ANNOUNCES HE IS AFTER IT Republican Politicians Are Some what Surprised at Cousins' Can dida)? for a Tklrd Torso. Matters political cam to a show down In the sheriff's office yesterday afternoon with the result that Deputy Ed Canning was summarily given his walking papers by Captain Cousins. Canning's enforced retirement from the position which he has held ever since Captain Cousins as sumed the offleo of sheriff In January, 1900, created considerable surprise at the court house and In local republican circles. Canning's summary dismissal followed a private conference between him and Sher iff Cousin. Captain Cousins stated that he was a candidate for a third term and that If Canning was also a candidate, as had been reported In the papers, the sooner ho quit the office the better. Canning as sured the captain that bo was a candidate and had every intention of staying in the Held. "Well," replied Sheriff Cousins, "If you are a candidate you are against me and I will not have any man working for me who Is against me." Deputy Canning assured the captain that ho was not against him any more than that he was for Can ntng. At the same time Canning called the attention of Captain Cousins to the fact that ' it was well understood threa years ago that he would be a candidate at the expiration ot his. Captain Cousins', second term. This explanation, however. was not satisfactory to the sheriff and Deputy Canning was requested to turn over his star forthwith, which he did. Create Soma Surprise. . Th announcement that Captain Cousins seriously contemplated being a candidate for a third term created no small surprise In local republican circles. Last fall when so much objection was raised by the rank and file to th republican renominating men for third and oven fourth terms, the republican county central committee Is sued a circular In which It promised that the candidates tor the several offices to be voted on this fall would be all new men and that th two-term policy would hence forth rule. It was generally supposed that this pledge would be kept and the rank and 111 of the party wa only kept In line last fall by this understanding. . Friends of Deputy Canning, who for a number ot years has been a prominent factor In local politics and who Is chair man ot the city republican central com' mltteo, assert that threa years ago when Captain Cousins announced hfs candidacy for tb offlc of . sheriff that Mr. Canning could hay then aeoured the ' nomination, hut that ho withdrew In favor of Captain Cousin on th distinct understanding that at th end of the captain's second term, If he should be fortunate enough to saoure It that Mr. Canning would then be a can didate. Th further understanding was that Mr. Canning, in return for. withdraw ing from th field and supporting Captain Cousins, was to have one ot the deputyahlps during th two terms. Ed Canning served as city marshal xrom 1893 to 1896 end from 1896 to 1897 as city marshal and chief ot police, th two offices being consolidated by an act of the legis lature. In 1(95.
