THE FALLS CITY TRIBUNE.
Vol. Ill FALLS CITY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY , HARCH 3o , 1906. Whole No. 116
Simple Justice. |
tn justice to myself a n d
friends : Iain compelled to deny
the statement published in The
Falls City News of last week ; to
the effect , that I should have
said , that 1 never did or never
-would vote for a democrat.
Some people seem to think
thtit anything is fair during1 a
little campaign like this ; the
same us anything- fair in love
and war , but I beg leave to take
exception to this proposition ,
and am frank to admit , that if I
cannot be elected without mak
ing a false statement of saying
a harsh word about one or my
opponents or any one el < e ; I
will gladly accept defeat.
I want the good people of our
city to know that I have no
friends to reward or enemies to
punish either before or after
this election. My motto shall
continue as it always has been ;
justice , kindness and good will
toward all , both rich and poor
If the voters desire such a
mnn as this to manage , the af
fairs ot their city for one year ,
and handle your money the
same as a good business man
handles his own ; I assure you
kind friend ; your support will
be appreciated , and I will con
duct the affairs of your city in
such a business like way that
at the close of my term you can
say , that there is one man who
lins kept every promise , and
done ? nore for our city than we
expected. With kindest regards
I beg to remain ,
Respectfully Yours ,
G MBAKKETT. .
