This week we announce as a candi
date for Mayor of Union City J. C. Rey
nolds. Mr. Reynolds enters the race at
the solicitation of a number of friends,
who believe that he is a suitable man
for the position, with the idea in view
that he would make a Mayor in fact as
1 well as in name, that he is thoroughly
, qualified, suitable in every respect, not
,5nly for the duties of the office, its re-
ri quirements, exactions, but that ho is a
man who would fill it with honor, with
discretion, with tact and ability. It is
furthermore believed that Mr. Reynolds
would uphold and enforce the munici
pal laws, especially those relating to the
violation of the Prohibition statutes, arjA"
every other infraction against the n
and dignity of the city. In additieen
this it is the belief that one of the mfc.
essential qualifications of the Mayor is

There is no society without baseball, nc

not a subscriber to The Commercial
send in' your names and take the paper
for six months, at least it' will take six
months to get you started in our con

Its editors and managers are nice, good
men and you will find good reading in

look for a letter from your old friend.
