TO THE VOTERS OF FAIRFIELD
There is a false report being cir
dulated over this County, that I was
brought out by T. W. Ruff and if
elected I would take over the road
which the Southern Power Company
has built in this county, as an~in
ducement to me to make the -race
The Soutpern Power Company had
made me a' present of an automobile
and was paying my campaign ex
penses. This is absolutely false and
without foundation. T. W. Ruff nor
any one connected with the Southern
Power Company had anything to do
with my enteritig this race, nor has
Iever said a word to me about this
I enteredl this race clean, on iny
own manl and expect to make a clean
race to a finish. My record is be
fore the voters of this county and all
I ask is a square deal, which I feel
sure you will give me on the 12 of
this month. I thank you very much
for the vote you gave me in the first
pdmay, and promise i'f electedi
sv leave nothing undone that I
could possibly do for the best 'inter
est of the county.
