Havinc: served thrift terms as ampm.

he is familiar with public service. He
was a member of the water works com-
hmittee, assisted in selecting the site for
same, made trips to other cities to
study such works, and was largely in
strumental in making our plant a suc
cess. His best work, and that whiVb en
deared him to many of the best people,
in tne town and countv. was his,
service as chief of nolice which
resulted i n the utter elimination
and eradication of blind titrera. liauor
dives and other immoral resorts, which
had been a terror to the city of Lancas

individual or clique. His official ser
vice in the past evinces his love of jus
tice and his desire to enforce the law
so as to bring the greatest good to the
greatest number and to avoid graft and
favoritism in any form.
He will favor the improvement of all
roads and the building of new roads in
a manner to conform to the DrinciDles
of justice and equity to all sections,
imposing no burden on any class, and
remaining within the purview of the
law. To accomplish this end he would
favor the appointment of a road super
visor who is competent, industrious,
and who will work constantly to insure
the best results.
He would favor the renting of the
Poor House farm bv competitive hirl-
ding, or in such a manner as to bring
the most money, and deal with it as the
interests of the people demand. The
same would be true of the Workhouse.
He would favor the appointment of a
County Treasurer, who will deposit the
funds with such banks or banking in
stitutions, as will insure the safekeep

and feeling proud of it as an institution
that will promote the general welfare
of the people, he would favor every
course or proceeding, under his iuris-
diction, that would in any way assist in
protecting and maintaining that institution.
Briefly, he promises to cive, and his
friends believe that he would render, an
administration that would approach the
highest ideals of government, both in
the trial of civil and criminal causes
and in the fiscal department He
would favor all that elevates and op
pose all that degrades. As he has been
tried and not fotmd wanting, it would
be no error to vote for his nomination
