The democracy of Washtenaw county on Wednesday placed a firstclass ticket in nomination. The ticket is a winning one. That is unnecessary for us to say. It is one worthy of the loyal support of the democratie party. It is one which will receive such support. J. Willard Babbitt, of Ypsilanti, our nominee for probate judge, is a. clean candidate. He is regarded as the best of lawyers. His clients place implicit faith in his advice. He is a safe man. He is an honest man. He is a conscientious man and his election will be by a very heavy majority. Charles Dwyer, the next sheriff, of Washtenaw county, has a record as a good runner. He will make an excellent sheriff, as he has made an excellent supervisor. He is a clean man with no spots on his character. Of County Clerk Howlett no words are necessary. He earned his renomination. He is one of the most popular clerks this county has ever had and the candidate against him on the republican ticket will be named as a mere matter of form. If this county were five hundred republican Howlett would yet be reelected. Michael 'Seery, our candidate for register of deeds, is a thoroughly competent man. He understands the business. He knows all the requirements of the office he will fill and he will meet these requirements. He is a poor man, to whom the emoluments of the office mean much and he should receive the loyal support of svery democrat in the county. Michael J. Lehman, of Chelsea, is known in all parts of the county, He has been before the democrats for some time and is a hard worker. He will be the next prosecuting attorney. Gustave Brehm, our candidate for treasurer, will make a good county official. He bas been deputy, having charge of the office for some months, has kept all the accounts in excellent shape, is thoroughly competent and honest, and the county funds will be in good hands. He is a representative of the voung Germán democrats of the county who are doing good work for the party. Patrick McKernan and Frank Joslyn, renominated for circuit court commissioners, are both good nominees. The emoluments of the office are very light, but ïf they were heavy the candidates could not have been better men. Martin Clark, of this city, and Dr. Batwell of Ypsilanti, will make coroners who will perform the duties of their office thoroughly. They are men above reproach. The ticket is nominated. Now for unión, harmony and a big majory.
