SATUBDAY, APRIL 3, 1909.
False Report Circulated as to His
position With Reference
Parties who hope to Injure Mr.
Louis Sterne's candidacy for mayor
are circulating reports that when the
question of increasing the wages for
men employed to work for the city
was before the council increasing the
wages from $1.50 to $1.75 per day, Mr.
Sterne voted against the increase.
The report is false and it is to be re
gretted that those who do not wish
to see Mr. Sterne elected should re
sort to such contemptible work to try
and accomplish his defeat. Mr. Sterne
like all of the rest of the councilmen
at that time, voted for the Increase
and the records of the April meeting
in 10C/ will show. There is no use
to be misled. Mr. Sterne is in favor
of good wages. More than a year ago
he voluntarily increased the wages of
the men in his employe. Can those
who are circulating the false reports
about him say so much for them
Workingmen are well satisfied with
Mr. Sterne's position on the wage
question. His voluntary Increase in
the wages of his own men refutes the
lying charges that some one is now
circulating with the purpose of hurt
ing his chances for the mayoralty.
Vote for Sterne for mayor.
People past middle life usually have
some kidney or bladder disorder that

Remedy corrects urinary troubles,
stimulates the kidneys, and restores

troubles by strengthening the kidneys
so they will strain out the uric 'acid
