WILLIAMS' ELECTION A
Reports from every section of
the Second Congressional District
are to ?the effect that Hon. L. J.
Williams is gaining ground day
by day, and it is highly probable
that he will win by a comfortable
majority in the first primary.
And why not ? He is a self-made
man whose official record is with
out blot,, whose private life is
abovo reproach and who is honor
ed, trusted, esteemed by all men
at borne and abroad. Mr. Wil
li aros has a commanding presence,
a etriking personality, is a force
fol speaker, endowed with strong
a nd vigorous mind, and, withal,
he is a practical, well-rounded man
who is qualified m every sense to
represent his constituency with
credit ai d ability.
While he may not succeed iu
his efforts to stay the hand of sor
rupt and extravagant Rppublhai -
ism, he will bo found everlastingly
at it, and, furthermore, it will be
his constant endeavor to open
wiae the flood-gates of tho nacional
treasury which lead southward,
securing every dollar that cati, bi*
?V legitimately had for this section
and its people. ?
