We are informed that the lay Health Commissioner, Hon. Wm. R. Kerr, is a candidate for Mayor of Chicago. He bases his claims for consideration on the excellent record of the Assistant Commissioner, Dr. Frank W. Reilly, to whom is due the first-rate administration of the Health Department.
If the affairs of that Department have been conducted with such skill as to entitle any one to consideration as a candidate for mayor, why not choose the actual person who has made the plans and performed the service? On that basis the candidate would justly be Dr. Frank W. Reilly and not Wm. R. Kerr.
