Our present Comptroller, Erman
M. Skipton, seeks re-election. As the
time rapidly approaches for the city
election much cognizance should be
taken of the various candidates for
municipal position. One of the most
important offices to be filled is that
of city comptroller. This office ranks
second, in vitalness, to that of the
Mayor. In view of this fact it is
necessary as well as expedient that
the best man obtainable be supported
for this office. To our very best
opinion, Mr. Skipton is the logical
candidate for office and deserves the
support of our group. His past ad
ministration clearly demonstrates his
efficiency in his particular vocation.
Mr. Skipton seeks the support of
the voters solely on the merits of his
past administration. That adminis
tration is known by every citizen who
has made an investigation of the re
cord of city officers. Those who have
not made a research of these activi
ties will do well to analyze the fact
before making a decision as to who
they will vote for.
Well Experienced
} *
Mr. Skipton has had twenty years
experience as an accountant. Of
these twenty years, ten years have
been devoted to practical municipal
accounting. This experience, obvious
ly, places him in a more advantageous
position than that of his opponent,
who secured his education thru a cor
respondence course. Mr. Skipton’s
knowledge of the inside working of
things, his ability to analyze the
causes and effects of propositions and
his technique in correcting flaws to
the extent that leakages in the city’s
expense budget might be stopped
makes him best choice for the po
sition of comptroller. The fiscal af
fairs of any Municipal government
must be as carefully dealt with as the
financial matters of an individual.
Since an individual cannot judicious
ly spend in excess of his earnings, a
city is placed in the same position.
City Using His Idea
When the present city charter was
adopted in 1914 Mr. Skipton, who
was appointed special accountant for
the city, installed the accounting sys
* tem, completed the annual reports,
supervised the audits and for the past
seven years, has had charge of all ex
aminations in the comptroller's of
His opponent, who is employed in
the water department of the city, has
one record to his credit and that is
the installation of index bards. This
carries no major significance in that
an average bookkeeper could ihstall a
similar system.
It has been the opinion of Mr. Skip
ton that has carried St. Paul through
the most successful fiscal period of
its history. To attempt a change of
men at this time would be synoni
mous to taking a convalescing pa
tient from the hands of a skilled phy
sician and placing him under the di
rection of a novice.
A Brief Comparison
The following is a brief comparison
and it might be added, there are
many more points to be made in fa
vor of Mr. Skipton:
1. Mr. Skipton has been an ex
pert accountant for the past twenty
years. He has had experience in
wholesale and manufacturing ac
counting for seven years, three years’
practice as a public accountant and
for the past ten years has been con
nected with the office of Comptroller
of the City of St. Paul.
2. His opponent has publicly ad
mitted that his only qualification for
the office of comptroller is the fact
that he has taken a correspondence
school course in accounting, and that
he installed a card index system in
the water department of the city
where he is now employed.
3. Mr. Skipton is unquestionably
entitled to re-election to this office,
and a review of Mr. Sklpton’s past
' administration, as well as his long
years of experience in the work of
municipal accounting, will doubtless
speak for itself, so far as the voters
are concerned.
Judge for yourself who will make
the best comptroller for St. Paul.
After a few weeks of inactivity,
the D. O. Z. club will resume their
regular meetings. Mr. and Mrs. Bis
marck Archer will entertain the club
April the 26th.
Erman M. Skipton
The St. Paul Branch of the N. A.
A. C. P. wishes to thank the citizens
of St. Paul who Joined in so heartily
in making the visit of Mr. Robert W.
Bagnall a success. It shows that we
really can be organized, and that we
want to be organized.
In the matter of the late unpleas
antness which has taken place in St.
Paul, the branch is working along its
usual way in trying to ascertain
facts. As soon as they are in the
hands of the board, they will make
them public, so that the members and
friends may know that we have not
been asleep on this matter. We re
gret that we will be unable to get
that report in this week’s issue of
the paper, but there is so much
ground to cover that it takes consid
erable time to do it; but we ask your
indulgence for another week, and
then we will give you what we have

Mayor Nelson appears to have
"Gossip” and "Whispering” on the
run judging from his rapid increase
in support from many who once op
posed him because of the stench made
by alleged unfair interests. The sit
uation gradually is taking form to
the effect that what was hitherto
foy* thought a Seigel victory is now
recognized as a Seigel boom. Since
the public denial, by Mayor Nelson
himfelf, that he is a member, friend
or sympathizer with the Klan, many
have turned to his support that were
formerly dubious. The situation be
gins to look ljfce a complete victory
for the present Mayor in his cam
paign for re-election. His fftends
are rallying more closely to his sup
port; this with the apparent losing
of grounds by the opposition car
ries added significance to the success
of the "Nelson for Mayor” campaign.
Shows His Odors
Mayor Nelson has not failed to
measure up to the necessary require
ments of a good chief executive on
any occasion, where executive ability
was necessary. Last Sunday he was
a speaker at a meeting called by the
Colored Voter's League. On this
occasion, as others. Mayor Nelson
did not fail to reiterate his belief in
law and order, fairness and justice to
all citizens alike.
Tuesday afternoon, at the Hotel
Howell, the Twin Cities Ministerial
Alliance held a round table luncheon
to which Mayor Nelson was an hon
orary guest. At this meeting the
civic betterment of the Twin Cities,
especially St. Paul, was discussed.
Mayor Nelson assured the Ministerial
body of his hearty co-operation In
helping them to secure better civic as
well as economic prestige for our
Fairness .Assured
The Ministers thoroly discussed the
situation as respects industrial ad
vantages and were told by Mayor Nel
son that in city work where labor
was employed the workers of our
group would receive recognition “not
because of preference or favors, but,
because of fairness and duty.”
This is only one of the many times
when Mayor Nelson has pledged his
support to propositions that have a
meritorious purpose. It is a grave
Injustice to consider that Mayor Nel
son is anything other than fair to all
concerned. Race, color or creed have
nothing to do with meting out of
Our voters should give their sup
port to one who has always demon
strated himself as fully possessed
with ability to think, reason, criticize
and estimate the relative importance
of facts. When a man’s enemies can
accuse him only for preventing their
despoiling public funds for private
use, their opinion cannot be taken
at face value.
