Monday was a good day for the Bradleys. W. F. Bradley was elected mayor of Adrián, James B. Bradley mayor of Eaton Rapids, and Bradley M. Thompson mayor of Ann Arbor. All three we're running on republican tickets, although our own mayor is a democrat. It is very funny to see the republican party press gleefully shouting we beat the democrats on the city ticket, and at the same time quarrelling among themselves as to who did it. It is funnier still when we think that before the election we were all assured that Col. Thompson was a democrat, a fact that is pretty well established, and the democrats certainly elected their president of the council and the clerk. Mayor Doty has given the city of Ann Arbor a good, clean businesslike administraron. He has made a good mayor and has set a pace which will keep the new mayor, accomplished as he is, hustlingto keep up with. He has looked out carefully for the interests of the city, and Ann Arbor has greatly prospered in the past two years. When it comes to the reform that the municipal club people talked of, it will be found that very little reforming is to be done. As for good order, no city in the state has had better order than has Ann Arbor for the past two years. Although defeated, Mr. Edward R. Gilday retires from Washtenaw with the esteem and good will of those with whom he was thrown in contact. He is an honorable gentleman, unassuming in his manners, and has made many warm friends. His defeat was due to no fault of his. He was running against the most popular republican in the district, who had made a good judge. The unfortunate introduction of appeals to religious prejudices into the campaign set in motion a current of feeling which could not be stemmed, and from a party standpoint, makes his defeat the more deplorable.
