BATTLE OF TODAY
The Republican Primaiies for City
Election to Take Place Between 4
rind 7 This Evening What Mr.
Bommelmeyer Says of His Candi
dacy for Mayor.
The city Republican primaries, In
.vlilcli the candidates for election in the
spring will he nominated, will take
place this uftenioon between 4 unci 7
o'clock, mid ns the result Interest rs
keyed to n high pitch throughout the
city. This widespread interest Is at
tributable, to two things the fuel that
tlie Crawford county rules will lie ap
plied, for the first time, to municipal
elections In furhondnlc, and the num
ber of candidates who have manifested
their wishes to fill three important
otllces that are to be voted for, namely,
mayor, treasurer and controller.
For mayor there are three candi
dates. Frank jlonnnelineyer. Ii. A. Rob
erts and Hon. 1U. T. Burke.
Mr. Roberts, as is well known, seeks
the nomination as the pronounced rep
resentative of the municipal water pro
ject. He has been the chief worker In
this movement and Is now more en
thusiastic than ever In this cause.
Jlr. Burke was first mentioned as a
candidate for treasurer, hut later cast
his chances with those seeking the
nomination for mayor.
What Mr. Bommelmeyer Says.
Mr. Hommelmeyer, in his statements
to the public, lias indicated that he bas
no platform but the platform of Un
people, whatever their wishes may be.
His aim, he has pointed out. will be to
net for the best interests of the taxpay
ers and property owners of the city and
to stand for all who iii-Re for the prope
administration of municipal affairs-.
His views in the matter are rellected In
the following statement:
"It is not for any personal ambition or
through any expansion of the band of
my hat that I am a candidate at the
primaries today, but at the earnest re
quest of representative citizens, prop
city owners and taxpayers, who m-ro
for Rood administration of our munici
"So devoid, to me, are the attractions
of the oflice that is highest In the sift
of our people. Hint I would not Rive a
nickel for a nomination. However (now
rend attentively), If the Republicans
Saturday, afternoon express by their
votes a demand that I be their candi
date, r r.hall endeavor to merit their
confidence, and ninko a vigorously de
termined effort to be the next mayor."
For treasurer, there are four candi
dates, J. Xormiin fielder, Melvln II.
Tappan, Frank It. Dever and Daniel 11,
Davis. Kach lias put tip a vIroi-ous
fight and the result will be exceedingly
close. Interest is centered in the can
didacy of Mr. Older and Mr. Tappan,
as they aro the representatives of the
younger element In the Republican
party, Mr. fielder Is an enterprising
young man, whoso connection with tho
dally newspapers of Hit- town , has
brought him Into favorable connection
with nearly everybody in the city. Mr.
