and that a public office is a public
trust which should be administered
for the benefit of the City and its
people and with the sole view of work
ing for the best interests of the peo
ple, and for the people, aud not as
their masters; believing in all the fore
going. we hereby declare ourselves
to be candidates for City Councilmen,
to be voted for at the municipal elec
tion to be held on the 7th day of Ap
ril. 1914, and we hereby present the
following as our platform upon which
we agree to stand irrevocably in case
we should be elected:
First. We declare that all just
debts owing by the City should be

CAME TO DEATH FROM
DRINKING WOOD ALCOHOL
The coroner's jury this afternoon
brought in a verdict declaring that
Jerry O'Neil came to his death from
the effects of drinking wood alcohol.
Nothing was brought out to show
where he had obtained the poison or
whether or not it was taken accident
ally or otherwise.
A chemical analysis of the contents
of the stomach of Jerry O'Neil demon
strated that he had drunk a sufficient
quantity of wood alcohol to produce
death. The analysis was made by Dr.
L. O. Egginton, Milt Winn and O. F.
Hill after the autopsy and examination
of the vlcera by Dr. L. O. Egginton.
Tho report of analysis of the con
tents of the stomach states that a
quantitative test had not been made,
but that the test made indicated the
presence of a large quantity of wood
alcohol in the-stomach.
The funeral was held this afternoon
from the Undertaking Parlors of the
C. W. Young company.
