Mr. Gunn is so well and favor ably known to the citizens of our city, that nothing that we might add would be of benefit to his good record in the discharge of his official duties or his good name. He has given the duties of the office his entire time and attention, and we doubt if any one has had a “kick” against him since he has held the posi tion. We can truthfully say. “Well Done, Thou Good and Faithful Servant.” He thanks you in advance for your favorable consideration of his claims, pointing to his past record as a servant of the peo ple.

U. resulted m the greatest petition ever presented to a president. Six million women on March Ist asked President Wilson to stop at once the present waste of grain, coal transportation, and men that are used in the manufacture of Malt liquors. This long list is composed largely of official signatures, and in character and scope repre sent the organized womanhood of Am erica. The official column contains the names of Mrs. Jo. siah Evans Cowles President- General of Women’s Clubs, Miss Anna A. Gordon National Presi dent W. C. T. U., Mrs. George Thatcher Gurnsey, President General D. A. R., Mrs. Robert £- Speer, Nationsl President Young Women’s Christian Asso ciation, Mrs H.
