IMPORTANT STEP IT THE CITY CAMPAIGN Away nnd by far the most inmortant act bearing on the approaching muni cipal campaign was the conference Wednesday of the executive committee of the Anti-Saloon league. The coin- . mltteo of twelve roinalnud In executive, session for sumo tttiu. after which , . Pastor Vines of the First .Baptist church, who was designated as spokesman for the commitiet', banded a Citizen representative, the following statement : "At a meeting: of the eveeuilve committee yesterday at the court house It was decided to ask the president of the Anil-Saloon league to call a mass meeting at the court house on Friday evening al s o'clock. At this meeting the executive committee of the league will re ommeiul the calling of a convention lo nomlnaie a full ticket to be voted for at tho Timing muuicin;:! election, .lodge ,;. II. Merriii.-'a wit! present Mm report of the committee at at the meeting on Friday evening. All members of the league n-e requested lo be present on Friday evening at this meeting of grea impoi iai.ee." During the deliberations of the committee coiedii"t-"hle opposition arose to the policy uhnli is outlined in the of-ticial statement, given out hv Mr. Vines. VVie ovpoiie'ils oi Hi is poVicy. whYle not strong uaiitcrit a'lv, were strenuous in voiciitr their epoi-'ition. I"iibt was expressed as to the expediency nf nominating any Ueke at all. The ends of the League would be bo.-.t realized, il was pointed mil. hv affiliating to a certain extent with ihe oliiual organizations. At least to tho extent of throwing out to the old par1 pes the Inlimallon that If they desired m cess they -must nominate men who would appeal with favor to the more than six hundred voters of the League. With lids sort of notice served on them. It was stated, i tither of the two political organiau- . tlons would dare lo put out other than good men, weheras.ff the League, without waiting for the Democratic prl-. martes. should place a ticket in the' . Held, the result might be disastrous. A large majority of the League members are Democrats, and If they should vote for one set of men, and the dom-fnent party should vote for another set, that faction of the labor parly that Is advocating the nomination of a tick-el might come lu, and, with the aid of a few hundred Itepuhlicaii votes, might be successful, and all the efforts of ihe League would come to naught, for the reason, It was urged, that the faction of the labor element referred to have placed themselves on record ns being opposed to any interference with the aaloons. And furthermore, it was contended. It would be entirely In keeping with the eternal Illness of things for the League to support the nominees of l.e Democratic paity. If they are given aceeptlhle men, because It was through the efforts of Democracy that legislation was enacted which renders feasible ihe efforts of the Anil-Saloon League. others, however, nnd these were in ihc overwhelming majority, held that the League should hold Itself aloof ; from associations with political parties, and should "stand on Its own bottom.' ,t The League should keep Its skirts clear.; of practical politics, was the prevailing ' opinion. The names of J, A.- Nichols nnd J. II. Tucker were mentioned as probable candidates for mayor on the reform ticket. The former, who was yesterday questioned with reference to the ; matter, said to a reporter: "1 could not for a moment entertain the suggestion, which some of these gentlemen have made to me. My busi ness would not permit or my ucceptlni? , any public office." What Mr. Nichols had lo say was brief, and to the point. "This is final," he concluded, in a tone of finality. I was also nought to ascertain Mr. Tucker's at tltude. He said ; "Several persons have been kind enough to mention my name in connection with the mayorallly but I have told them. ami still feel that I do not want the nomination. I have been actively Identified with this movement, because of a solemn conviction that the saloons are a menace to our city, and my heart Is in the movement because I reel that the elecllon of our ticket would" Vie a step toward the suppression, not only of ihe saloons, but of other evils. No, I am certainly not seckluir the nomination. My family Is opposed lo It. and all my predilections are against it. If I thought Ihe cause tor which we are contending would be promoted by so doing I might accept the nomination, but I am certainly not in any sense a candidate.'
