APRIL 7. 19.10. $1 A 'tiR Mr- Blantoo Explains jlr, Editor: If I were to say Botbing, my position or action might be misunderstood. eo I announced for tbe Senate Ibid reason to believe I would not bve opposition; at leant such as to require me to run a second time. I eumot afford to strive for oftlec, al. though I Lad some desire to serve a ttrm in tbe Senate. I have always believed tlial the people should be more disposed to exercise indepen dent action in regard to choosing men to make laws ralber tban to nibmit to tbe importunities of seek ers after this important branch of tbe public service. If I knew that majority of tlie voUms in the county would forego (very other consideration and give tbeir support I would yet qualify. But as I think it looks better in me to retire ratber than engage in con tention for ollice I hope all will a p. predate tin; reasons for my notion. Respectfully, J.

CNrirATE FOR COUNTY TREASURER. To the Democratic Voters of Miidiann County: I am again a candidate for Treiisurer of Mmllwm county. Two years ago 1 was a candidate for thia ollice but was defeated in the first primary notwith standing I received W voles in the couu'y, and I certainly appreciate the rote that wus cii-t for me and I thank the voters of Madiaun county for what they did for me, I am a native of Madison uountv . was born April 22, lf7'.), one mile sruth of Madison and my father moved from there to Hopewell which has been my borne up to the present time. There fore, I feel a Kreat interest in old Madi sun county and the citizens that live in it, I have been raised on H luriti and haven't anything but what vou call a common school education, but fel that I am comoetent to All the office that I have asked for. We have a Rood lnH0 holding this ollice now and has been for many years, but I do not consider that any reason why the voters of the coun ty should elect the same man to ollice every two years. I think if we have but one man in the county who Is fit to bold the treasurer's office then Madison county is in a critical cundilion. Two yesrs ago Bome thought that I could not give the bond required, but I truly bope tbat no one will have that opinion of me in thia campaign. 1 intend to conduct thia campaign just ae I did be fore and will not have auything to say against any of my opponent as I do not approve of anything of tbat kind. Hoping that do one will get offende'l at theee few remarks and that the campaign will be a successful one for me, Kespectfully, JOHN' W. DAVIS.
