A COUNTY SLATE
What a Newspaper Thinks It Will Be.
It is more than a year before the republican convention to nominate county officers and rather early tor slate making. But it is mid-summer and dull times and an Evening News correspondent writes: Ann Arbor, Mich., July 18. - The republicans will ' have to nominate a complete new slate next year, and already the Pingree-Alger-Judson faction has outlined the work. Judge Newkirk, his friends say, is entitled to a renomination for the office of judge of probate, and there will be no contest over this plum.
The slate is as follows: County clerk, Bert Schumacher, of Ann Arbor; sheriff, James Burke, of Northfield; register of deeds, S. Bibbins, of Augusta; prosecuting attorney, A. J. Waters, of Manchester; treasurer - well some good German from the extreme western part of the county. Ypsilanti is to get two good deputyships besides the usual nominees for coroner, circuit court commissioner and surveyor.
