The doctor, we are sorry to say, Is completing his ur- rangcment£ to move to Kansas City and embark his ship on tho booming and possibly stormy sea of businosH, there. Ho received $17,000 cash for tho furm, will inspire the confidence and respect of the people. Wo need a council of representative business men with broad and liberal views, free from selfish bias, capable of conceiving and carrying forward a wise andjudicious system of public improvements, and of fostering all movements calculated to advance tho public good. The fundamental principle underlying a city's prosperity is confidence in the wisdom of its rulers. As a means to this end we trust that the Republicans of the city will do their part next April by putting a full city ticket in the field including candidates for Aldermen in every ward. Let them put forward influential men for the several positions and then trust to the intelligence of the people for the result. This would probably involve the adoption of tho same policy on the part of the Democrats. Well and good. We have sufficient confidence in that party to say that a Democratic convention would put in the field bettor material for city officers than such candidates as would thrust themselves forward if no conventions were held. if the several political parties call upon capable men to step forward and serve the people, ask them to assume the discharge of a public trust, and pledge them their support, they will not refuse. The TELEGRAPH believes, then, in "polities in local elections" to this extent: using the machinery of BOTH parties to briny the best qualified men into the field, and then letting the people lake their choice. There is no other practicable way of securing the desired result. To say the least party nominations are better and safer than reliance on scrub races. This was our position ( two months ago, and it has remained unchanged. It will be noticed that we then said: The TELEGRAPH believes in politics in local elections to this extent: using the machinery of both parties to bring the best qualified men into the field, AND TliEN LETTING THE PEOPLE TAKE THEIK CHOICE. The Republicans held a convention in response to a call of their committee. It was mado up uf delegates from every part of the city, and selected by separate ward meetings. It was open and public, every one who so desired had a voice, there was no "caucus" and no "dark lantern" business about it. That convention divested itself of any personal feeling, rose to the necessities of the occasion, and nominated Mr. M'Pike for Mayor; nominated him not simply because he was a Republican, but because he was believed to best represent the upward, onward, progressive spirit of the city. Had the delegates looked at the matr tor simply in its politic?! aspect they might have nominated some other man. Therefore, m accordance with our previously expressed sontimen.t in the article published above, this paper will support Mr. M-Pike for Mayor in the spirit in which he was nominated; as the proper man to lead the progressive sentiment of the city; as the representative of progress and improvement and a new era of prosperity. This is the way the people will look at the matter. Two years ago they des feated Mr. M»Pike, and have been repenting their folly ever since. They will not repeat the mistake. PEUSOKAt.
