The amount of benefit Polk county receives from the 12th district can be regulated only by the men who are elected to rep resent it in the county court. We join with all fair-minded people of the county in hoping that the new district will be rep resented ooly by men who can and will vote on all questions placed before the county court, intelligently and honestly.
