W. P. MONROE ANNOUNCES FOB THE SENATE.
To The Republican Voters Of Tennessee, Composed ot the Counties of Hancock, Grainger, Claiborne, Union, Campbell, Scott and Morgan: Two years ago I was elected your Senator carrying every county in the Senatorial District. At that time I pledged to the people that would retain on the statute book? the Jaw tnvtne to each or my coun ties the auto tax in equal part5 each county receiving the same as the large ones. This I did, altho the bill parsed the house but after tny fight on the bill in the senate the repealing bill was defeated. Thus each county will receive near $9,000 from the state treasury for road re pair purposes, each year. Thia fund is alloted to the counties on May 1st. and Dec. 31, of each year. The allotment of this fund as made by the state Hghway Com mission on May 1, 1922, was $6939 53, each county and the amount of funds paid in by each county of this very sum was Campbell, 84542-84 Claiborne S2587.07 Grainger $1454.05, Morgan $1284. 57, Union $1042.74, Scott $463 32, Hancock $495.84 the remainder of the funds to yet be distributed will raise the alxve figures of $6939 53, to $9000.00. This program put in effect in 1919 by the good roads committee of which I was a member i3 the first time that money was collected off of large cities and remitted to the County Pays into State Campbell $17,655.00 Claiborne 11,688.82 Grainier 8,173.97 Hancock 3,735 36 Morgan 10,556.31 Scott 9,800.26 Union 5,299 16 There are a few demagogs who are now endeavoring to make capi tal and for political expediency and to satisfy a few city politicians, at tacking this system with a view of obtaining the repeal of this law. Does my district want it repealed? I should say no, for the reason that no law could take its place that would be worth so much to these rural counties. I opposed and voted against the dortch ballot and women paying poll tax and stand for their repeal. There are thousands of men and women in my district who cannot read and write for the reason that they had no opportunity to go to school and to prescribe the Dortch ballot at this time deprives them of a voice in their Government, This i .--- . The Third Senatorial District of country counties. The autos of the city wear out our roads and should help build them. There will be an effort and there is already a pro gram on foot to repeal this bill and if I am return to the Senate I will try to retain this law as it is, just as I passed it in the first instance Fought For The Rural Schools. As a member of the Senate Edu cational committee I with other members of the committee, intro duced and passed a. bill known as the elementary school bill and this bill was based on scolastic population or numoer or children attending school. As a member of the committee I knew that larger families were rear ed in the country and thus the idea to improve the country schools and give them the money with which to run their term longer was conceived; we did this by levying a tax over the whole state, knowing that the cities had two thirds of the wealth. Under this system each county of my district gets many thousand more dollars from the state than they actually pay in to the state I treasury. Under this system the amount that is paid in by each county and received in return from the state are as follows: for the year from July 1, 1921 to June 20, 1922 '-Jlv:l!i.-,:i:.4'.X Receives from State Excess Received from State $33,070 41 $15,414.42 27,338.67 15,654.85 19,353-08 11,179.11 15,251.49 11,516.13 18,064.98 7,508.67 18,314.13 8,513.87 18,184.32 12,885.16 Dortch Ballot is a head of its day aud should be repealed I fulfilled my platform on which you elected me two years ago and if you will elect me again I will keep faith with my people. I am opposed by a man who has a $2500.00 job as a prohibition enforcement officer ' for the United States Government, I am also opposed by a wealthy coal operator. Who, voters and taxpayers will vote for the interest of the laboring man, the farmer and their children If you desire investigate the facts in this announcement and then de cide for yourself who is qualified and who should go to Nashville as your Senator. Faithfully yours, W.P.MONROE.1 READ YOUR HOME PAPER. Notice of Republican Primary Election.
