Kind of a Nasty sort of business going around handshaking trying to get votes for your own candidate and take them away from the other fellow but politicians must live the same As every other class of citizen so the average Man As a Rule is charitable toward them and thedr machinations and forgets the Little innuendoes which they drop by the Wayside in an attempt to influence votes. Thinking that it might cast a reflection on him the Wise old Leader of the first has started the Rumor that John f. Smoyer candidate for nomination on the Republican ticket for Council in the first Ward is the candidate of this newspaper. Of course this newspaper has supported Johns candidacy but what fair minded publication would not have done so he is a business Man of Sterling qualities and one who would be prone to sacrifice dollars for principal naturally this paper had to support John for he deserves the support of every fair minded person in this Ward who is not owned and controlled by the Organiza Tion and he will get this support. But thinking to injure John s chances the propaganda has been sent Forth that he is a candidate of the Independent and so much for that. In order to let his Many friends know just where he stands and whose candidate he is John has written a letter to the editor of this paper with the request that it be published guess Johns friends will like his w Ord against the word of the persons who Are trying to Down him with this misleading statement.

When the candidates for office were spoken of some weeks ago a number of my business associates came to me and urged me to stand for of lice for a time i hesitated and then later on i was waited on by committees from several of the fire companies of the Borough who requested me to make the fight for Council so that they might have a Friend in that body. I fully appreciate the Nice this Fps the Independent has said about me and the Friendly feeling they have expressed toward my candidacy. It you will give space to this letter in the next Issue of your paper it will put me on record As standing firmly on a platform of better government for Bristol and not As the candidate of a newspaper or of any particular set of the citizenry of the Borough. It nominated and sent to Council i will Promise the people of the first Ward that they will at least have a representative Odio will not be afraid to stand on his feet and attempt to secure for them their just rights in the legislative body of the Borough. 1 Hanking you for your efforts in my behalf and w Ith kindest personal regards i am very sincerely yours John f.
