CAPE GIRARDEAU TRIBUNE. CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO., FRIDAY, NOVEMBER I, IMS.
4Sa 'Jir "Csp nrart mm Cmmt w On Next Tuesday you will be called upon to decide what men will serve as the officials offyour county. Bfelow we are presenting a short statement with reference to the Democratic Candidates. None of these men are chronic office holders. We can heartily endorse them, and we commend each and ev ery one to the Voters of the County: First, as One Hundred Per Cent. Americans; and second, as men eminently qualified for the positions forwhich they seek: GIBONEY HOUCK Nominee for Legislature Giboney Houck, nominee for the Legislature, is too w ell-known to need any introduction to the people oi this county. The Supreme Court decided that the Coun ties, and n3t the Little River Drainage Corporation, would have to build the bridges over the diversion chan nel of the Little River District where it crosses our pub lic roads. It has been estimated by competent engineers that it would cost Cape Girardeau County from $300,000 to $500,000 to build these bridges. Mr. Houck is proba bly more familiar with the Drainage law than any other lawyer in Cape Girardeau County, and has consented to become a candidate on the Democratic ticket, becamse he expects to have the Drainage law amended in the new Legislature so as to take the cost of the building of the bridges across the Little River Diversion Channel from the people of Cape Girardeau County, thus saving the county from $300,000 to $500,000. N. C. FRISSELL Nominee for Recorder N. C. Frissell, the Democratic candidate for Record er, is so well-known throughout the county that an intro duction is hardly worth while. He was born in Potosi, Washington county, Missouri, and moved to Cape Girar dean county in 1863, where he has since resided continu ously. His work as surveyor has familiarized him with the remotest parts of the county and has perhaps given him a larger intimate personal acquaintance than that of any other individual resident. The greater part of his life has been spent as a civil engineer and surveyor, and he has figured prominently and actively in some of the most important engineering enterprises ever undertaken in Southeast Missouri. His election would carry a safe as surance that the duties of the office r.f Recorder would be performed in a careful, painstaking and efficient manner. Give N. C. Frissell Your Vote for Recorder.
