VOLUME X. HENRY M Nominated for Mayor by the RISING SON COMMENDS REPUBLI CAN CITY TICKET TO THE SUPPORT OF THE NEGRO VOTERS OF KANSAS CITY. The Ticket a Credit To The Commu nity. Let U Help Elect It. The Republican city ticket which la now before the people in quest of their suffrage on April 3, is nn ideal one in every way. It is made up of men of character, Integrity and abili ty and they are worthy of the support of the colored voters of this communi ty. That which is good for the white citizens Is likewise good for the negro citizen. The election of this ticket, headed by an honest, honorable and able man, means a good, clean and competent administration of the af fairs of Kansas City. Every candi date from Hon. H. M.

Now let us go back and ask the question, why should we not urge the colored voters to sup port the Republican ticket. Is it not a question of evil or good, with com mon sense, fairness, and gratitude on one side and absurdity, injustice and base ingratitude on the other. It is our duty to ponder wisely and come to the conclusion to vote the straight Republican ticket on the 3 of April and thus contribute our mite to the causa of good government.
