Phillips For Commissioner.
The friends of Oscar H. Phillips
of Providence Township, are urg
ing him to annnounoe for county
commissioner. After hesitating
for sometime Mr. Phillips has
deoided to announce. Mr. Phil
lips is a worthy young man, a
graduate of Trinity College of
Durham, and aleo A and M. at
Raleigh. Mr. Phillips is well
qualified for serving the people as
a commissioner and it behoves us
to go to the primaries and eleot
him. We of the south' side of
Providence Township haye never
been represented by a commis
sioner. So give us Phillips and we'll
elect him, not only with Dsmoora
