Subject to change arrie. , if films fail to Montgomery Webster ( Political Advertisement) To the Voters of Ionia County: On account of the constantly increas ing volume of work of the Probate Oilice, it is nearly impossible for Judnc Webster to get about the County as much as he would like to do during the present campaign. In fact the past year has been the busiest ever known in that oilice, a large number of especial ly imjwrtant matters having arisen re quiring attention. These business matters are being handled by Jiuke Webster promptly and acceptably as he has devoted his constant attention to the duties of the otllee. In the whole range of Olllcial duty there is no parallel to the responsibility of representing those upon whom has came the great silence. To do this In recognition of duty Legal and Divine lias been his sincere ellbrt. We believe accordingly that those who have had business with the Pro bate Otllee in the past may le defend ed upon to endorse the candidacy of Judge Webster among their friends. A careful examination of the facts will show that in a large number of the Counties of the Stato, the Judge of Pro bate is continued in oilice without ref erence to iolitics, it not being looked uion as a jwlitical oilice. In fact its duties require ait experience and legal training along lines of Probate work. This training Judge Webster received as clerk for his father, the late William O. Webster, which especially fitted him to perform the duties of the oilice. Your attention is called to Wayne Couny, Paginaw, Shiawasee, Manistee, Clinton, Harry and in fact to nearly all of the larger Counties to prove that frequent changes tn this oilice are re garded a undesirable. You may yourself Ihj interested in some estate next year. Is it not of too much Importance to you to have a change? If tula is your opinion, will you work to retain Judge Webster? May we depend ujwn you? Webster Campaign Committee James II. Kidd, Chairman FrasturT. Yeontans Frank U. Miller t i t t t t Here's a Stove That Saves 3 Tons of Coal Each Winter When you can heat your home luxuri ously warm all winter with three tons of coal, why will you burn six? A Favorite Rase Rurner will heat every room in your house comfortably, and 'do it with half the fuel an ordinary base burner requires. The common-sense construction of the Favorite is the reason why it is the best and most economi cal stove iit existence. Most heating stoves let too much heat escaje uy the chimney. The Favorite doesn't let a bit escape it throws it all into the room. The illustration shows that no heat goes to waste with a Favorite. See how the heat travels in two. streams down the back of the stove, at each corner, then forward across the bottom of stove, under neath the ash pit. Then back across the bottom, and up the central flue to the stove pipe. All this great surface passed over radiates the heat into the room, and its area is more than doubled, because the back Hues are set apart and out from the stove, ami the bottom Hues are separ ated from the ash pit. So heat radiates from all sides of the back and iKjttom Hues, as well as from the back. and bottom of the stove. That's why everyone that buys a Favorite saves one-half on their fuel bills. Come and see us, and our Favorite will I your Favorite, too. T. Frank: Ireland Co. Th Wc Never Sleep Copy of Letter Sent Out by Fred M. Cook during the Campaign of 1908 TO THE VOTERS OP IONIA COUNTY- In 1902 the republicans of Ionia county nominated and elected Harry J. Hoi brook county clerk. In l')04 they again nominated and elected him. Two terms for county office has been the rule since the organization of the county. The sheriff and county treasurer are prohibited by law from holding the office more than two terms. Why should the office of county clerk be diffetent? In 1906 Mr. Holbrook asked his party for a third term. Many republicans protested against violating a two-term precedent, so well established. Tr remove this opposition Mr. Holbrook promised that if his party would give him a third term he would not be a candidate again, but would step aside and permit some other worthy republican to enjoy the fruits of this oilice. In 18, in violation of his promise and against the protest of many republicans, he again secured nomination. . ' I believe it is fair for the voters to consider the following (questions, to-wit: 1st. Is Mr. Holbrook the only man in Ionia county entitled to hold the office of county 2nd. When he promised to retire at the end of his third term, should he not keep his promise? 3rd. If he is the only man competent to discharge the duties of county clerk, what would the people do if he should be called away? 4th. Has he built up such a powerful political machine that no other member of his party can secure the nomination for county clerk? 5th. Will he ever retire and give someone else a chance? 6th. Do you believe in life-tenure of office? Don't you believe that if an office is a good thing it should be passed around? I am running against Mr. Holbrook for county clerk, and I believe that as fair miuded men you will support me, which I would greatly appreciate, and I promise, if elected, that I will give you my best efforts in discharging the duties of the oilice, and that I will make no effort to secure, and will positively refuse a third term. I have served as city clerk of Ionia city, and I respectfully refer you to Dr. George I Winchell, the republican mayor of Ionia city, or to any of the officials of Ionia citv, republican or democrat, as to my competency to discharge the duties of the office of county clerk. Respectfully, FRED M. COpK, Democratic Candidate for County Clerk. :lerk? To the Voters of Ionia County Believing in a Square Deal: It is to your good judgment that I respectfully submit my candidacy for the office of county clerk against Mr. Cook. I believe I hold the same claim to the office as did Mr. Cook four years ago, and I Crust you will find it justifiable to support me. Inasmuch as the present incumbent promised to quit with two terms and declared he "would make no efforts to secure and would posi tively refuse a third," I believe I am entitled to support as "fair minded men," as Mr. Cook appealed to you four years ago. If you believe in a man living up to his promises you will consider my can didacy November 5th. I am running for the office for the first time, and will give my entire personal attention to the same if elected. I will greatly appreciate your vote and inflnence. Yours respectfully, FRED T. WORTMAN. I 1 The city foot ball team went to Uock ford last Saturday and won the game from the Uockford-ites by a big score.
