LEGISLATIVE
CANDIDATES
SYNOPSIS VIEWS EXPRESSED
AT BLENHEIM
Want to Leave Lien Law to Vote
of the People, and favor
Prohibition
Thos. A Bristow told some jokes
about the present member's of tho
legislature. Ile favored letting
tho people vote on the lien law.
Against the sale of pistols and car
tridges. Opposed to homestead
law. Opposed to allowing people
to pay out when convicted of
crime. They should bo put in
chaingnng. The b?ind tigers have
the best law in the county, because
good men do not report them.
J P Bunch said he did not ex
pect P.) l?e a candidate till a few
days ago. Said his gray head and
beard admonished l im that ins
time was short. Non-professional
man from ordinary walks of life,
here by roques! ?>? men "I* my t all
"mg. In favor ot biennial sessions
ol' thc legislature. The state gov
ernment is becoming extravagant
etil oil oho session ii year and stive
from sci ?.ono to $85.000. Legis-1
lature ol which J was it member
passed amendment for biennial
sessions, bul it wits never submit
ted i<> the people.
Opposed to b'.ircuil of immignv*
lion. Will light it ?or all i am j
worth. Favor liberal support for
higher institutions bl I'urning.

pie's money. Apropiations in
creased $300,000 in two years.
Favor appropiations lor old sol
diers and schools, biennial sessions
of the legislature, and getting
government in a cash basi^.
ll K Covington said ho hated to
make excuses, but must make ex
cuse for sore throat. Was a can- ?
didate two years ugo. made some
good speeches as 1 and others
thought. I was surprised that I
did not get any more votes. I
have been told that I did hot need
it. Mope nobody is running for
tito money in it. 1 represent tax
payers more than any other candi
date. Pay more taxes than the
aber seven candidates. I feel it
when taxes are, raised.
Am in favor ol' belter roads and
schools. Money paid in each
township should be used iii that
township, and the township should
be allowed lo issue bonds if want
ed. In favor of biennial sessions.
We have too many laws, and what
we need is lo block laws. 1 will
do all I can to keep you (rom ho
ing burt by legislation,
,1 P Gibson said lie came in part
LO give un account ol' stewardship
Not one single bill which 1 have
introduced has died upon tito cal
endar. Introduced and had passed
the hill to abolish blicket shops,
and drove them out of the state.
introduced and lind passed bill1
to prevent liquor drinking on
i rains. Favored tho labor contract
law and was instrumental in hav-|
ihg it pns.se<I. Had state line;
surveyed which gained for the
sipta about a thousand acre ol'
?and. Tho lil o i.- nov, p?rhhtni lil
ly marked. Introduced bill to in
creake sUi)0rvisor' Malary ?rom
?j\700 lo fctfOb. and tia:!. \?> $1 (?00,
,\ Iso had bili passed to establish
school book depositories through
out tito county for the bcnciiit ol'
patrons.
While in Columbif received let
ters from many farmers and busi
ness men saying it would notdo to
repoal lion law, and thought it un
wise to vote for repeal. In that
matter, as all others, I want to act
for tho best interest of tho peoplo.
Want tho people to vote on lion
law and instruct" the representa
tivos.
1) 1) McColl Jr. said he askod
for re-election on his record. Im
possible in time allotted to discuss
all matters of legislation. One of
tho acute questions is that old one
of taxation. There must be taxes
to run the government. What
you have a right to expect is the
least expenditure consistent with
good government. Appropria
tions have ?nereus ;d became sum
for confederate veterans lias b^en
increased from $50,00, to $250,000.
I voted for that increase. Was it
extravagant to provide for these
old soldiers < For insane assy lum
over $200,000 was given. We
were ?Uso asked to provide for deaf
and dumb at Cedar Springs, and
we did it.
1 voted against tho following
appropiations: $25,000 for 'un
proving State house grounds;
$25,000 tor Jamestown exposition.
We tire spending $15,000 br
$10,000 for beau reati ol' i m mig ra
tio!). After the experiment had
been tried 1 \ oled to abolish that
department. N oted against in
crease of $10,000 or $15,000 for
pay of circuit judges. Have-, ol. ii
against all appropiations except
those which required every pat
riotic son to support,
In rogitrd to the liqu >rquestion,
the slate i-, in worse situation than
ever, Will discuss lien, lau al an
other lilootihg. Let the people
who aro most interested ct ist. thc
deciding- vote. Doubtful about
expediency of repeal of law, but
am servant of people, and will try
stale .'P years and had not asked
for ollice before. Opposed to ,
mudslinging and have nothing to ?
say against opponents. If elected
will try to serve the county faith
fully.
D L Whittaker said he was ,
nothing but a common funner,
[f elected will study issues and
act with best of judgment and ,
ability. Will not make many prom
ises. If (dei ted v. ill go in inter
est of the people. Believe the
people can get aio;.-_ better with
out lien law. hst will represent
the people. Will vote for prohi
bition. Said ho had never tried to
make a speech before.
