- Men of the 6th ward in Evanston met Fri. night at the home of Charles W. Spofford, 2242 Orrington Ave, to discuss who will replace outgoing Alderman, Charles S. Wallace. R. Clarnence Brown and Walter Mitchell suggested at the meeting that a committee choose a candidate. The following were chosen to serve in the committee. Joseph Pearson, Frank H. McCulloch, Andrew Nelson were chosen to represent the east side of the ward. John W. Ackerman, Roy Whitlock and H. L. Armstrong were chosen to represent the west side. The committee will try to close a split that was made last year when Frederick A. Yard ran against sitting alderman, William Eastman. The committee will report back to a meeting of 6th ward citizens next week and the home of U. S. Grant. He will be chairman of the meeting.
It has been announced that H. E. Chandler will be a candidate for alderman in the 2nd ward. He will oppose incumbant Victor A. Rossbach. Two years ago, Rossbach defeated Mr. W. G. Sherer. The LSN says Chandler is likely to win.
W. G. Norkett is the sitting alderman in the 4th ward. Candidates to succeed him include: Chas. Elden, Peter Hummelgaard, Ernest Witsiepe, Henry C. Gelmer and W. G. Norkett.
Chas. H. Bartlett, city treasurer is being urged to run for mayor against possible candidate, James R. Smart. Chas. S. Wallace may also be a candidate.
It is likely that John F. Hahn will remain city clerk.
