I wish to take this opportunity
to thank those who voted for me
for alderman In ward one at the
recent election. I sincerely appreci
ate the liberal support given me,

When I entered my name as a
candidate for alderman I was un
der the impression that the man
who received the highest vote
would be declared elected, and had
no idea that my entrance into the
race would cause a second election.
