Being solicited by my friends to
make the race for town Alderman, I
have agreed to offer myself as a can
didate for the office again. I had not
desired to make the race but my
friends have been so insistant that I
felt constrained to obey their wishes.
If I am' elected I promise the people
of Waynesville to give them an hon
est and conservative administration.
I stand for progressiveness in all
civic matters, yet I will feel that
before any important improvements
involving the expenditure of vast
sums of money are involved that the
tax payers be duly consulted.
In offering myself as a candidate
I want the people to know that I
am not 'making a fight for this office,
but I am only offering myself as a
citizen that has the welfare of the
town at heart and willing to do any
thing in my power for the betterment
and upbuilding of our town.
