To the Teople of Nashville
I am a candidate subject to your
suttrage, lor the oUice of Commission
or of Waterworks. Slreetcleanine and
Workhouse, and believing that the
oters are entitled to a frank and
candid statement ot views and prin
ciples irom meir candidate, I declare
r.nd pledge myself to the following
1. While I recognize that party pol
itics will not be a test of eligibility
and fitness in a municipal contest,
and as this, I will state that, if
elected, the democratic principle of
equal rights to all and special Drivi
leges to none, shall be the governing
principle of ray official conduct, and
in support ot this pledge I point to
l lie record of my life, both as a party
man and as exemplified in my per
sonal and business career.
2. Eight years ago I was a candi
date betore the people for the Board
of Public Works (the title under
which our city's governing body was
then legally designated) and although
defeated on the face of the returns
by a few votes, the conduct of the
election, and especially the counting
i of the ballots in several of the
wards, was such as almost to conclu
sively indicate the presence of gross
lrauds and irregularities, without
which my election would have been
conclusively assured by a decisive
, majority. Against the protests of
i friends and supporters, and Indeed of
many who had opposed me in my am
bition and who had cast their ballots
against me, 1 declined as a good De
mocrat to contest the election, and
thus embroil the ity and people in
a disturbing and expensive contest. 1
elected to prefer vindication nt the
naiuls of the people at some future
date, and that vindication I now seek
and confidently expect from your bal
lots at the ensuing election.
My party record, as well as my
record as a citizen and business man,
is open to you, and I Invite its in
spection. I was originally a mechan
ic and for four years worked at the
bench, but for the past twenty years
have been engaged in the nierchantile
business in Nashville. I have been
engaged au,i interested in industries
which have given "employment to
labor, and helped upbuild and de
velop our city. I was for eight con
secutive terms president of the Retail
Grocers' Association, and am now a
director in that and other business
corporations, whose aim and endeavor
j is the upbuilding of Nashville and
I the prosperity of its citizenship.

Having called to my notice the policy
of t'lis monnpolv in t'io mat'er o!

and its probable further encroach

the interest of the taxpayer of the
city, and while an advocate of the
progressive iiTfprovement and the
proper and necessary maintenance of
our city's streets, schools, parks and
other utilities, yet I advocate retrench

aement of our city: ExTfavagance
should be throttled, expenditures wise

less offices abolished, the rate of tax

policy now pursued is doing.
Pledged to these principles, and to
the enforcement of all laws and
prompt, efficient and courteous ad

That we Christians cannot sanction

by attempting to give a poor synopsis.
Only those can appreciate the won
deful sermon who were fortunate
enough to hear it.
There were more than a hundred
white people out to hear the preacher, :
and three times as many colored. While
the preacher's manner of delivery is
conversational, he has the power to
rise to grand climaxes of inspiring
thought, which give him the sympathy
of his audience. To fully appreciate
him he must be heard. j
