N. T. GADD'S ANNOUNCEMENT
FOR COUNTY ATTORNEY.
Having filed with the proper ofllcer , I
now announce myself a candidate for the
omce of county Attorney subject to the ap
proval of the republican party at the Primary
election to be held Angust 16th , 1910.
It Is perhaps needless for me to say : I
am unalterably against the Liquor Inter ,
osts , I am for county option , for state and
nation wide prohibition.
I am a republican , but am most emphat
ically for the revision of theTarff downward
and lor the removal of tariff upon things
essentially necessary to the comfort , health ,
happiness and prosperity of the citizen.
My present term of olllce does not expire
until January 1911 , my tlmcand ability there
fore Is the property of the citizens of the
county , of all political complexion ; that be.
ing true I WILL NOT MAKE A CANVASS.
I havenol been absent from any meeting of
the board of supervisors have been on hand
at ah times when called upon by county
officers from the least to the highest , Includ
ing Township ana School district officers ;
When needed by the private citizen , either
over the Phone , or in person I have been on
hand by day or night , and this I will have to
say at the end of my term of ofllce regardless
of the results of the primary election ; if you
need the county attorney , you will llncl him
ot his office , not out In campaign , using your
time to further his personal interests. If
absent , it will be because of business , and in
that event , there will be a competent lawyer
in charge ot the office.
I am human , and no doubt have made
mistakes during my term of olllce. but I have
no excuses to offer neither any appologles to
make ; I have sought to discharge duty to
the best of my ability from mv view point ,
this I will continue to do ; I will thank you
for your consideration end will appreciate
Respectfully Yodrs ,
