This Is the kind of a man the Democracy of Hof Springs offers tor your support and endorsement at the polls at the April election. To the Democrats We cannot believe that the men who have* stood with the Democratic organizaticns of Hot Springs and Oarlanti County for years are at this time going to break w!th the par ty. It is true that now, as always, there are men who have affiliated with the party, but who win not be content to support *he nom inees of the party unless the man they voted for in the primary wins the nomination. In this respect we must tighten up os-* our party hues if we are going to make & Democratic nomination worth the seeking. Sf it is going to be in the future that a Demo cratic nomination means nothing, than few er who seek office will he satisfied to go through the formality of a party These things are worth your considera tion for the further reason fh-t :f: *ve are to exert any influence in state affairs in th >• future we must have a Democratic organi zation worth wh'> at bor ?e. Ancf te can it ail there is no reason why i the Democratic nomine or. of this ellec-’jr^n I of Tuesday, April €fb. should net f?c elect ed, ami there are innumerable reasons why they should receive the strongest en dorsement at the that have been given Democrats here in years. To the Laborer and Mechanic The democratic party, ever the friend of the working man in oil waiks of life, otters for your consideration at the polls in the coming municipal election Harry A, Jones, who has ever been and ever will be the friend of the working people. Mr. Jones sis himself a working man. Me began in Hot Springs 14 years ago in a most humble way to scale the ladder of success and he began at the bot tom. During the first years of his citizenship here he performed labor. Later be was ad vanced to the management of the Waverly hotel, and later was given the management of the Majestic hotel, where his business capabilities made a splendid success ©f his undertakings. Orsiy a short while ago he purchased the Majestic hotel property. In his management and in his business affairs he has proved himself the friend of the working men by being what is known in labor circles as a “good man to work for.” That means that he pays good wages, treats his employes well, is courteous and consid I erate of them under ad circumstances and conditions, and is probably accountable for the fact that as a unit those working for him I are enthusiastic in support of his candidacy. Harry A. Jones The Police Department Relative to the police department, WSr. lories hns stated that if the city could only afford to pay one police officer, that officer would be in ft*55 uniform, and on the job, where he ce 's be found during the hours he served. T there has been much dissatis faction over the police department for years m Hot Springs. isn't it sut time that Hot Springs gave the super- -Ton of this department to a broad gauged liberal man who would see that the department was conducted as it is conducted in other fb-st class cities, and that the police could be looked to as the guardians of the public police of the com munity under all conditions? The visitors observe the police condi tions probably more than any other branch of the city government. The police should be especraHy interested in a kindly and courteous attitude towards our visitors, and should through this medium, be useful in other ways than in dragging men to Sail for violations of the law. ?V£r. Jones has ad vanced ideas in the matter of conducting the police department that are certain to receive your approval. To the Business Men There lias a demand for some time to get business men to enlist in politics and affairs out? ide the controlling influences of old political factionalism. YOU approved that idea at the primary when as a business man you formed an avalanche that bowled its way to vk .cry in the primary for a repre sentative 1 -siness mara tor the nomination for mayor. That was a progressive step on the part of the business interests of the citizens. But one ovher step must he taken to make that 'irst ore effective, and that second :4 is the s-jine solid business, support for Harry A. Jones that was given him in the pri mary of last December. veu want your city to he operated along ? i 'Vt.oss Sines because you know that is »',*y for us them having political influ e* " : • ai'one control the situation. Knowing this as you do. put wour shoulder to the wheel and show the people of Arkansas that, you mean business m your efforts that you stand together, and that your business de mands f«r Hot Springs m the future will have a political interest behind them. To tiie Non-Partisan There is always in every community a large number of splendid citizens who do not affiliate closely with any political organ ization. They keep aloof from partisanship, aud therefore keep themselves free to vote for the best qualified men offered in the general elections. Ths class of vote is already almost an unit for Harry A. Jones, because in him they realize they are getting an opportunity to support a man, who, though a Democrat, will be mayor of the whole city without re gard to par*izanship obligations that have been considered necessary :n the past. They realize that Mr. JonesVdi put forth his best efforts for the advancement of tiie city, that his administration will not he used for the purpose of compacting future polit ical alliances, and particularly in this re spect, Mr. Jones will not be a candidate for a second term even as a Democratic mayor unless the people as a whole are so satis fied with his administration that the call will be practically unanimous. These facts make the candidacy of Harry A. Jones par ticularly appealing to the voters known as n on-partisans.
