To the Editor of The Observer:
There is one member of the old board
who is entitled to the gratitude and con
fidence of every good citizen. He has
made an enviable record and one to oe
proud of. A man of few words; quiet,
unostentatious, he discharges, with zeal
and fidelity, every trust imposed upon
him. He has had the nerve and manli
ness to level a square blow at more
than one crying evil. Without dispar
agement to other citizens, good and
true, that man should be re-elected.
Every good citizen in Ward No. 1
shouldrally to his support. His name
