It should be remembered that tho call for the convention which nominated Mr. M'Pike was a broad and liberal one. t road s "The Republicans of the several wards of the oily of Alton, and all voters desiring to cooperate with them n scouring a belter, more efficient and more progressive administration of olty affairs, are requested to meet," etc. This all took in every citizen who wished o co-operate with Republicans "In ecuring a better, more efficient and more progressive administration of oily ffairs." Tha call was for a «p«oiflo bject. It did not ask citizens to co- perale for the spread of Republican* sm, or for partisan objects but for ecuring a better city government. Mr. M'Piko's letter of acceptance meets the spirit of tho oall. The convention nominated him because ho opresents the spirit of progress and eform, of advancement and improves ment. The present city administration has been a blight on the prosper, ty of the city; U has been a loadweight on progress and an incubus n improvement. It is time for a change. Every "beoru" is founded on confidence. The election of Mr. M'Pike will give the confidence our people need in he future of Alton, and a new era of wosperity will dawn on our city.

Everything in the show ib good, and in fact a better array of talent has seldom been seen together. Tho audience was large, as the combination deserved. The first part was good, and the jokes were new and well got off, the principal end men, George Wilson and Carl Kankin, being im- mensB. The best feature of the show was undoubtedly the "Pavenelas," five artists, whose act was marvelous. From what seemed ordinary paring implements tney drew sweet ruusio, and obtained five encores. Tho act is new, original and enjoyable.
