      "The Philadelphia Times probably has not heard the Advocate tell it and the rest of the newspapers to "shut up" on the Mayorality question, and hence this morning contains an item on that question. It speaks of various persons, among whom are Major Coates, Samuel Greenwood, Dr. R.P. Mercer, Thomas J. Houston, William H. Eves, Major Brown, and Harry Abbott as Republican candidates, but as Mr. Houston has publicly announced that he was not a candidate, and Mr. Eves a number of times stated that he would not be, the list is simplified just that much."
