To the Voters of Polk County:
have, for some time, contemplated en
tering the race for Sheriff of Polk
county. I have withheld a public an
uoiniremeut for a settlement of the
question as to whether or not a white
primary would he hold for the selection
of county oll'icers, being unable to buy
votes, and also opposed conscientiously
to vote buying, even if I were able to
buv them. That question being settled,
since nearly all the people of the county
who have expressed their wishes and
opinions on the subject have pro
nounced in favor of a white primary,
d the Committee the people elected
to manage it have called lor a white pri
mary to beheld on August the 15th for
the selection of county officers, I feel
that there is an open field and a fair race
for all, whether rich or poor, upon their
merits and qualifications for office. I,
therefore, announce myself a candidate
for the office of Sheri If, subject to the
white primary on the date aboye men
tioned. If J am not the nominee of the
white voters of the county for that of
fice, I am for the man who is. If elected.
I shall endeavor to show my apprecia
tion of the confidence my fellow-ci<i-
zens repose in me by making the best
officer in my power. My Deputies wi"

Several ytars ago, Mr. Prior began

readied out for trade, and the large
custom patronage he enjoyed has
constantly increased. His old quar
ters have been in the old foundry-
building of the Alabama and Geor
gia Iron Compa'ny, which now are
occupied by that company.
His increasing patronage necessi
tated larger quarters, and Mr. Prior
in casting about for a suitable loca
tion, decided that the site of the old
Cedartown Foundry could not be im
proved upon. The purchase was
accordingly made, the erection of
the buildings inaugurated, and the
work of removing the outfit to the
new plant has been in progress ail

machinery and material have been
delivered on the grounds in East
