FRIDAY, AUGUST 22, 1913. Mayor Howse. The voters of Nashville are again called upon to make a selection for Mayer. In this Instance the Mayor will he combined with four others to fcrm a commission of five; this commission talus the place of the twenty-five councilmen, the Board of Public Works aud all other departments- of the city government. All of the business of the city will be done through these five men, who will be the heads of the five departments. The Mayor will be the chairman of the Board, aud while it takes a ma- jority of the Board to decide any, question, the Mayor or chairman (should be a man with a clear head, and also a clear conscience. He should be s man of conviction and with a courage to do what he believes to be right. He should be a man who will hear the appeal cf the small aa well as the great, and who will always do the best thing for all the people, re gardless of their position in life. We believe that the present encum bent is a man who possesses these ; qualities. Mayor Howse has served Naihvllle four years as Chief Execu tive; he tas been a faithful servant . nd has proven himself competent to ; handle the. affairs of the city. For ihee reasons we feel that lie Is en titled to. be elected the first Mayor . tinder our new form of government.
