NOMINEES GREETED WITH CHEERS
Are Cheered to the Echo
All Nominees Speak and Tell Why the
City Campaign Should Not Be
Affected by State or

rnands that every American citizen
align himself under the banner of
principle and sterling worth, regardless
of party. 'The beßt man for the best
place" should b* the slogan. There Is a
place where partisanship may be a
virtue, but it is not In the matter of
appointing public offlclalß.
"The city administration Is really felt
more either in merit or demerit by the
citizens of municipalities than Is the
government of the nation. For the af
fairs of a city are In direct and con-
Blant evidence. Clean streets, morality
Bnrt proper protection are all most
keenly realized, whether existent or
larking. Therefore the selection of
competent, honest men to handle the
affairs of the municipality should re
ceive as much consideration from vot
ers as should the appointment of able
men for tho executive positions of tha
national government. Public officials
should be selected regardless of party.
Why should we respect the claims Tor
office of party adherents any more than
we acknowledge the privilege of a man
to demand a position of us as coach
man or any menial post, simply he

"San Francisco now lies in moral

political domination and is arising like

"While oh a train a few days ago I
overheard the conversation of two gen
tlemen near me. They were discuss
ing non-partisan ideas. The first
speaker said: 'When fifteen men can
gather and elect a ticket to suit them
selves republican government is gone.'
I turned and inquired, 'Isn't that about
fourteen better than we have been
having If? They did not answer and
I suppose their silence gave assent.
"Party organization ha<s made 11
possible for a few to dictate to th<?
community. When the non-partisan*
met in convention they determined to
gather the wheat from the chaff of
political office-seekers and in doing
this the whole cityl not one man, was
given the opportunity to select Ihe
best men to be found in Los Angeles.
Leaving myself entirely out of consid
eration I challenge any one to say
that a better ticket has ever been pre
sented to the city voters by any party

Will Not Withdraw
"The newspapers and politicians of
Los Angeles have been continuously in
jecting and intruding this proposition:
That I should withdraw from the race
for mayor on the non-partisan ticket
in favor of the Republican nominee.
In answering this proposal I wish to
say that I appeared at the Republican
convention and demonstrated to them
all the dangers of nominating another
candidate. They took no heed of my
warning, and the responsibility for
their rashness must now depend upon
"I went before the convention for
the sole purpose of warning them
against the fatal results that would
most certainly follow to the Republi

case demands that if anyone should
withdraw from the mayoralty race It
should be the candidate of the Jiepub-
Ucan party, rather than myself.

that possibly In no other city In the
entire country nan there ever been
named for city offices men who, as a
whole, stand higher In the community
ln which they live and who are more
fitted for the positions for which they
have been selected but for the nor
n for which they did not seek. .
Following is a brief sketch of each of
the nominees: .',•,'>>■'
Lee C. Gates has been a resident of
Los Angeles for the past fourteen years,
during which time he has been foremost
in the advocacy of good municipal gov-
II I ernment. He was born in Ohio In 185t,
! studied law In Dayton and was ad
mitted to the bar In 1881. He came to

well and favorably known In Los An
geles. When Ben E. Ward first was
chosen city assussor he selected Mr.
Mallard as his deputy, and when Mr.
Ward was elected county assessor he
took his deputy with him. Owing to hlB
long experience and his close official
connection with Mr. Ward, the non
partisan nominee for city assessor is
said to be better fitted than any other
man In the city for the position.
Judge R. M. Lusk for many years was
a resident of Texas, where he became a
large property owner. He served a
term as district judge and was presl
