For a Clean Town
Mr. Editor:-Please allow me
pace to say a few words in re
ard to civic improvement of
r town. We do not doubt
1at the city council do the best
1ey can with the limited sup
ly of funds. and do not intend
iis article as a reproach in any
ay. There is, however, a lack
f neatness and cleanliness ap
arent in numerous places and
-e would emphasize the impor
ince of individual property
wvners doing all in their power
) have unsightly obstructions
ade to look better or to be en
rely removed. There are sheds,
ianties and ugly. buildings on
ain street. There are placards
d posters out of date which
ght to be torn down. About
me places are old tin cans,
miana peels, loose T.aper and
her trash. Some of the old
orn out buggies, wagons etc.
iiht be taken away. Lets
ve a clean-up day. We ought
have a clean. healthy, beauti
il taown. The council would
> well to insist on a civic orga
zation and these t vo work
g hand-in-hand, would make
iese hills look like an eden
hose beauty would cause men
want to live in keeping with
eir surroundings.

other nominations might be
ade from the floor in addition
to the ones sue e-ested by this
ommittee. The committee re
tired and saxortly reported by
way of nomination the follow-.
ing six. 0. R. Doyle, Dr. R. F.
mith, I. M. Mauldin, J. N.

Mr. LaBoon. Nominations clos
ed and a ballot was taken which
resulted in the election of the

ing upon our members in con

The conventionl was, general
ly speaking, quiet and harmon
jous. While there were somet
spirited debates,- everybody kept
their equilibri im an~d staid in a
good humor. Blease and Jones
ver mentioned casually in
~Omel of the d1ebatt(s, but nothing
Was said1 or <ione on either side
to mar- t he feelings of the friends
of either or to draw the lines.
No effort was made by either
ide to commit the con entioni
by endoi senment of anyone's
anudidacv. It was generally
onceded, however, that more
than a majority of the members
of the convention favored the
candidacy of Judge Jones. The
strongest evidence of this fac't is
in the election of delegates to
the State convention, at least
five of them, it is generally con
eded, being Jones men.
