The candidates for count;,1 liominaf'-iiS are getiing ratli'ir ïvumerons in the democratie ranks, and some pretty good timber are out for nominations. Of course County Clerk Blum, Register of Deeds C. R. Houstoa and Prosecuting Attorney John L. DuSy w:'l be renominated by aeclaniation. Tncy have made good officials and will be accorded second terms. The fight in the democratie convention wlll probably 'be over the office of sheriff. For this office the candidates at this date who are known to the Argus as declared candidates are, in alphabetical order: Alderman William Clancy of the third ward of Ann Arbor, Joseph Gauntlett, of Milan; Deputy Sheriff Orton F. Kelsey, William Lehman, of Chelsea, and Lester H. Yost, of Ypsilanti. There may be others but they have not deflnitelj declared themselves. Sylvan lias already elected a Lehman delegation, weeks in advance of the convention. It was reported that Mr. Gauntlett had withdrawn from the race, but the York delegation to the convention yestorday vigorously denied this and Mr. Gauntlett himself told the Argus last eveuing that he was a cancRdate. For county treasurer the only name so far heard is that of Supervisor Charles Braun, of Ann Arbor town and liis name has been favorably received.
