Alton Illinois. Voters of said place: I think it my duty to open your eyes con. eerning the present Mayor’s election April 2nd. 1907. Now citiz ns do you realize what he has done tne laat two years of his reign over your city, if not I will try to make it plain to you whether you have been benefited by by him or not. First I will illustrate. The first pavement contract that was let by Mayor Beatle’s board of local improve ment the price per yard was $1.13 Laborers wages $1.75 per day, Later estimates were raised and contracts let and kept increasing until they have reached $1.39 per square yard, men working are still only getting $1 75 p^r day If the above is trne in wh^t way is the property holder who pays o>’ the laboring man who works hard for every cent benefited by the*present Mayor's local im provement. Second illustration. When the work was going on in different | parts of the ity and the contract ors were hiring their men did they hire you? No. When the city granted a franchise to the A. J. P. street line did the Mayor and the council make an argu ment that the said comp a n y should not draw the col\*r line? No they did not, still you have to pay taxes. Third illustration. Have any of you worked in the Beall Shov el factory? No Now voters stop and consider the step you wi I take April 2nd, and c istyoui lo fo • th i welfare of your race and prosperity of your city.— ILLINOIS TRACTION SYSTEM. East Bound for Decatur.
