W. H. McClellan, candidate for su
pervisor on the Democratic ticket, in
an emphatic statement to the voterB
gathered at a Punchbowl rally last
night, declared that he stands by the
frontage tax, that he believes the sen
timent of the city supports the tax,
that the Democratic county platform
upholds it.
"I am for the frontage tax without
any 'ifs' or 'ands,' " he told the voters.
Speaking this morning of an adver
tlsernent printed by the Republicans
attacking his financial record as a
member of the board of supervisors
some years ago, McClellan declared
the statements "absolutely false."
"I realize that it is merely a poli
tical fight on me, but at that It Is
absolutely unjust and a falsehood un
fair in the most partisan politics,"
he said. 'The records will show how
the funds were handled, just as the
records will show how the funds have
been bandied by the present board,
through its wsys and means commit
tee. I am perfectly willing to be
Judged by the official records."
