The election of Councilman Peck
to the mayoralty created a vacancy-
in the first ward. The contestants
for the position were Mr. John Nev-
ins and Edward Perry. It was at
first supposed that J. J. Collins
would be a candidate, but that gen-
tleman declined the honor for some
reason or other unknown to the
writer. Mr. Nevins received a call
signed by a number of influential
citizens, and accepted. Mr. Perry
did not announce, and the first inti-
mation that the public had that he
was a candidate, was the appearance
of tickets on the streets early Mon-
day morning with his name on it.
The result of the voting was as
follows: John Nevins, 17S; Ed.
Considerable interest was mani-
fested as to the result. The impres-
sion gained ground during the day
that Mr. Perry was an enemy of our
free school system, which brought

Browu’s Bookstore Escapes Burn-
ing by a Narrow Span.
Sunday morning at about half past
three o’clock, Mr. Levi Hornbeck,
an employe of the M., K. & T. rail-
road, passing down Main street on
his way to the depot, noticed a dense
smoke issuing fiom under the door !
of Brown’s bookstore. He once gave
the alarm by shouting fire! fire!
McDowell and Pattv, who hap-
pened to he near, hurried to the
stoic, and these gentlemen and Mr.
Hornbeck violently knocked on the
door of the stoic in order to awaken
the inmates and lo aid in extinguish-
ing the fire. Officer Johnson almost
immediately joined them and fired
! several shots from his revolver for
the purpose of awakening the gen-
tlemen occupying rooms in the
Muller block, in which the stove is
situated. The door was soon opened
by Wallace Pearson, a young man
aged about 16 years, who is a clerk
in the store. A dense smoke almost
suffocated the parties who entered,
but nothing daunted, they went to
work and by the application of sev-
eral buckets ol water, the fire was
But for the timely discovery of the
fire, we no doubt, would have to
chronicle to-day, one of the most
disastrous conflagrations that has
ever occurred in our city.
The store in which the fire origi-
nated, is filled with combustible
articles, such as paper of all descrip-
tions, chromos, etc., and but a short
time would have sufficed to produce
a terrible blaze which undoubtedly
would have destaoyed the entire
Muller block and then spread to
Nothaf’s building and further. The
proportions it would have assumed,
can only he conjectured.
The parties who sub hied the
flames state that they found a lot of
paper bags on the lower shelves cn
the east side of the store on lire and
on the opposite side, a distance of
perhaps fifteen feet, a lot of woolen
yarns was also burning, which proves
that the store was fired in two places
to which a lot
with coal oal was fastened with a
string was also found in the store
and furnishes additional evidence of

states that the fire had been discov-

j being and that he and Mi. Brown
j were engaged in trying to quench
the Hanes when the parties knocked
at the door.
One o’clock Sunday a warrant for
the arrest of Brown and his clerk was
issued and placed in the hands of

What Are You Going to
Editor Denison News!
We have now a new council, fully
organized, ready for work, and
already evincing a disposition to
improve on the past. To that new
council, while it is still fresh, we
would like to put the question:
“Gentlemen, what are you going to
do about encouraging manufactur-
We desire substantial encourage-
ment given, and wish you as a body
to cxend it, and we purpose to give

This subject has attracted the
attention of communities other than
Denison. It is based on the principle
that the more territory you have
tributary to you the larger you can j
grow. A town that lives on boat
building alone can only grow
according to the demand l#r boats.
It may have a population of 2 >0 or
300, or it may dwindle down to 50
by a dull market. A town tin t
owes its dependence to agriculture
will contain a popufat on of 1000 to
3000, and will be allt cted by the
distance of the next town, but it
never can get beyond 5000, ami that
in the very richest of nirming lands.
A town that is a county scat and
depends on the legal business, grows
to 700 or 900 and is usually the
dullest town in the county.
A railroad town has no definite
population, is uncertain, fluctuating
i in its people, contains a large float
ing, shifting class, and until its
permanence is established beyond
peradventure, it is the most unsatis-
factory town in existence to live in,
because of that constant oscillation
between depression and elation.
A town depending on commerce is
generally larger and more steady
than any yet mentioned, because
usually located by some decided,
natural advantage, and without
opposition for 200 or 300 miles.
The town, however, depending on
manufactories tor its support is the
one that has no limit to its growth.
Of course two or more of the
above mentioned supports may he
combined to the advantage of one
town, in which case its population
will be still greater. But in all that
