Before the county and State elections have ceased to simmer over the political fire, the local municipal pot begins to sputter just a little. Already we hear talk of candidates tor Mayor. Among those who have been mentioned so far is Hon. John W. Cop- plngor, who has a host of friends here who are urging him to permit the use of his name. Another candidate is also named— Mayor Brueggem&nn, His friends and Admirers are urging him to enter the field for & third term. He haa not yet decided what he will do, but in all likelihood if he should decide to do so, he will make separate schools bis platform. Mr. Jos. Holl is also favorably mentioned. He is very popular, and should he become a candidate be would be a hard man to beat. Ex-Alderman Boall Is also mentioned. Mr. Beall Is averse to re-entering political life, and says be la happier attending to his private business than in looking after city affairs. But he has a large array of friends who would be pleased to sec him Mayor. No doubt, in time, there will be others, and possibly no one of the above will feel like sacrificing himself on the altar of municipal affairs, sufficiently, to become a candidate for Mayor next spring.

Burlington to Use Alton Bridge. Tbe Burlington freight trains will be run over the Alton bridge again, so it is reported by reliable authority. The Burlington used the Alton bridge one year ago sending much of its freight this way, taking the Big Four at East Alton to make connections with tbe Burlington road. After using the bridge for some time this route was abandoned for the freights temporarily but negotiations are now being completed whereby tbe Alton route will again be taken. Mr. J. E. May, the local superintendent of tbe bridge company, was in St. Louis yesterday conferring with Burlington officials and it is understood that the deal was closed. A new experiment will be tried Buna>y when the new trelght service begins. When the Alton bridge was used at first a plug train was made up to haul the oars from East St. Louis to West Alton and there they were distributed in the local yards. By the new arrangement the freight will be hauled through from East St. Louis to Hannibal. The selection of the Alton bridge route by the Burlington will be a good thing for the bridge. For several mouths past, business on the Alton bridge has been improving so that now the revenue more than pays expenses. With the heavy increase of business consequent of the decision of the Burlington to usa the Alton route will increase tbe business so that it is altogether possible the road will soon be out of tbe hands of a receiver. Mr. May could not be seen In his oilloe today, but the foregoing facts are correct. Trading Mampi After Oct. 1 we will give trading stamps to cash customers. Dorse} FueiOo. Dr. A. O.

The little village of Went Alton is to bare quite an Industry In a few months If arrangements can be made. Oapt. W. P. LaMothe has received an offer from a St. Louis woolen goods manufacturing Oo. to locate a large plant in the village, provided ground csn be secured. The company la now doing business in St. Louis, but finds the smoke and dust of the city a disadvantage and the cause of much loss in the manufacture of delicate fabrics. West Alton has unrivalled railroad facilities and the plant will be located there providing that Oapt. Lamothe will deed 10 acres of land and a number of building sites to the owners for the erection of buildings. The company proposes to form a little village over there and will build houses for its workmen. Oapt. LaMothe has agreed to donate the land asked for as a bonus, and now the matter of accepting the offer lies with the owners of the manufacturing institution. The woolen goods plant will employ 200 men from the B tart. It now has a contract for a large amount of army supplies and these must be ready by March 1. Should West Alton capture the prize it will be the beginning of her commercial prosperity.

Lester Is the Burglar. Chief of Police Knhn is certain that George Lester, the paroled convict now under arrest, is the man who committed the daring daylight burglaries In Middletown.
