THE 1'OLITICAL SITUATION
Prospects for Nonpartisan Election.

the Itridga Company Firo
on Main Street.
Special to the Scranton Tribune.
PlttBton, (Pa., Feb. 0. Our comlnSr
election promises to be one of hottest
and moat interesting: ever held in our
town. The delegates -of each party
have placed on their respective tickets
men who are held in high esteem by
their friends and associates, and who
are worthy of the Bupport of voters of
this city. This campaign should be of
a non-partisan type, each citizen as
certaining who is the best qualliled
nun to lill each important otllce of
trust. It is essential to the growth of
our 'new city that we use much discre
tion in casting each vote for men who
Svtll look after the welfare of our new
municipality and who have already
proved their worth by the effort and
tireless persistency in which they over
came all the ditlloultles which pre
sented themsolves In our change of
Kovernment from a borough, with its
disadvantages, to a city, with advan
tages which only the older and wiser
heads could discern. For the office of
mayor, the candidate of the Citizen's
party is Thomas Maloney, who has al
ready proved his protlclency as chief
magistrate of the borough und who Is
a man of marked ability, possessing all
the qualifications necessary to the
mayoralty of our young city. The Re
publican candidate Is Dr. Charles J.
Barrett. I5ut the ofilce of mayor is not
the only office to be filled with worthy
men. The office of controller is also an
Important office, and care should be
taken in electing a man to that ofilce
who is well qualliled and worthy of
such an Important position. Benjamin
J. Harding, who is a candidate for the
cilice of controller, is a gentleman who
has fathered the reform movement and
has all the requisite qualifications of
a straightforward and efficient public
servant. With Maloney as mayor and
his election is doubted by few and
Harding controller, assisted by a com
petent corps of men In our councils and
other offices, we will have a body of
city officials who will promote the best
Interests of our infant city.

MADE EXCLUSIVELY BY
Washburn-Crosby Co, wish to assure their manv pat
rons that they will this year hold to their usual custom
of milling STRICTLY OLD WHEAT until the new crop
is fully cured. New wheat is now upon the market, and
owing to the excessively dry weather many millers are
of the opinion that it is already cured, and in proper
condition for milling. Washburn-Crosbv Co. will take
no risks, and will allow the new wheat fully three
months to mature before grinding.
This careful attention to every detail of milling has
placed Washburn-Crosby Co.'s flour far above other
