visiting this portion of the Institution
the LioiiT reporter returned to the lower
portion of the new building where there
are three wards. One of these wards Is
tbe chief surgloal wards where patients
who have been operated on are placed.
The operating room Is at the head of this
ward whloh Is an apartment containing

the door Is beaming the benevolent face
of Dr. F. IlerfT the honorary surgeon.

reporter proceeded to tbe ward where
the city and county patients are placed.
This was a pleasant alry room contain-

ple's Candidate for Mayor.
At the approach of the coming city
election the I.ianT called upon such rep-
resentative Republicans as Messrs. Bel
knap Bolton and F uroos to enter the
race for Mayor but they declined. In
tbe Committee of One Hundred a com
bination of a few Republicans gave the
nomination to Captain Merrltt In order
to control one or two minor offices for
themselves a proceeding which did not
all suit tho Ideas of many Republi
cans or In fsct anyone who was In favor
of progress city Improvements and gen-
eral advat.cemenl. This fact has kept
the I.ioiit quiet. It has consistently ad-
vocated all manner of publlo works be
cause Jt believes that In no other wayt
at ine present win can Antonio regain
(he boom of the pust.nd thus furnish
loher hundreds of mecuantcs and labor-
ers the employment they need and
should have. This position the Ijqiit
did not believe Captain Merrltt was In
full sympathy with not from any utter
ance of recent date but from his
record In the past. He has been op
posed to almost every proposition
for Improvement by tbe olty and nntll
recent days would hear to nothing of
the kind beyond the small sum which
the Council ha vainly tried to make
cover the demands for fire times the
amount. There are Democrats and
Demoerals Mr Merrltt Is ono of tbe

laghan I one of the new Iron era. One
u In favor of progress because be wants
votes; the other favors It because It ben-
efit the people. One runs on the result
of a combination between two party
cliques; the other on hi merits as an
open earnest and avowed party man
This In brief Is tbe situation and
while the Limrr had other preferences
It believe that a young and vigorous
man like Bryan Callagban at tbe head
of the city administration will be a step
toward the Improvements and the pro-
gress needed and that he will fill the
position vlth honor to the city and with
credit to himself. He will not be tlno-
tured with mossbacklsm In tha least.
and ha always had the courage of his
oonvlctlons either In party councils or
whllo filling the position of City Re
corder and as Mayor will give his Influ
ence andabllltle to the advancement and
prosperity of the city generally and
the laboring masses particularly. His
nomination by a Democratlo convention
composed of over 300 delegates Is an evl
deuce that his oandldaoy fills the desire
of The peojneft)rrmkn wneMs-vtgoroni
aggressive and progressive and one
who will endeavor to revive the flagging
prosperity of the city. Such a man Is
Bryan Callagban anil be will have the
support not only of the people but of
