All “PVim" On Holder
Carswell, Hardman and Wood are
all on the stump, and neither ever
Utters a word against the other,
while each of them is busy repeat
ing campaign canards about Holder,
who is actively at work on his job,
along with the other commissioners,
and doesn’t even give interviews to
newspaper reporters, but most of
the press of the state is actively sup
porting him, and keeping the people

Winning and Holding Votes For
To us it would seem that John
Holder’s enemies are his best friends.
The ridiculous tactics and assertions
some of them are using against him
are winning and holding him votes.
It would be otherwise if voters gen
erally were ignoramuses.

(From West Point News)
Will Protect State Against Overin
John Holder is the representative
of the people against overindebted
ness. He was a popular man
throughout the state before he stood
out and championed common sense
with regard to bonded indebtedness
but he now is more popular than
ever, for he cannot be led away from
this stand on Georgia’s biggest ques
tion. The people of western Georgia
know John Holder is sn honest, whole
souled, able man who will take a de
finite stand and remain firm. They
believe in his sincerity of purpose
and they know he will be elected
easily on September 8.

(From Crawfordville Advocate-
People To Decide Bond Queitioa
George Carswell wants to refer
ttie question of a state bond issue to
the people in a general election.
However, John Holder has already
announced for governor on a plat
form opposed to state bonds,' and
now that Carswell is running on a
probond platform the issue will real
ly be determined in the September
primary whep a much larger yote
will be cast than in a general elec
tion. And, if the voters mean what
they are saying now, George will be
firmly convinced on the morning of
September 9 that the people of Geor
gia do not want any heavy bond is
sue levied upon them at this time.
(From Dawsonville Advertiser)
Holder'* Opponents “Slinging Mud”
The good people of Georgia are
not going to believe the personal
abuses John Holder’s opponents are
throwing at him. And immaterial
matters pertaining to the bond is
sue are being published against Mr.
Mr. Holder. Just any thing to try
to win votes, but they are gaining
votes for Mr. Holder by this “mud
slinging.” Mr. Holder's record as
Chairman of the Highway Commis
sion is open—he isn't trying to keep
anything from the people, and we
believe they will show their appreci
ation of him when they cast their
vote on Sept. Bth.

(From Walton News.)
The Oglethorpe Echo says: “John
Holder continues to ‘set pretty’ in the
straight road to the executive chnir.
He is making votes by paying no
attention to the onslaughts of his
opponents with baseless charges. The
people are wise to the fact that they
are made solely for campaign pur
poses.” Ye "Uncle John's” still hunt
in Walton was decidedly helpful.

“The State Will Be Safe"
“Beat John Holder!” is the hue and
cry of the opposition. They don’t
seem to give a darn who else is elect
ed. There will surely be mourning
and gnashing of teeth by the Walk
or-Anderson clique the morning af
ter the election. The state will be

Opposition Criticises Board For
One of the charges Carswell and
Hardman are making against Holder
is that he is holding meetings with
the county authorities asking the
allocation of roads, at the expense
of the state, *just as if that work
could be done in some other way,
■which is simply impossible. He and
the other members, Bennett and
Phillips, are obliged to do precisely
what they are doing, and the person
so silly as to be influenced by such
contemptible rot needs a guardian.

John Holder is not saying something.
But how can he talk and figure mile
age all at the same time? However,
he has talked some. He says: “If
the people will elect him to the Gov
ernor’s chair he will give them the
safest and best administration that
it is possible for him to render. ’
There is no doubt but what ho means
every word of it.
HON. JOHN N. HOLDER
The candidate for governor who has
rome out squarely against bonds, who
is opposed to plunging the state into

Georgians, and by thousands of Ninth District Voters.

many good things said about your
speech. I trust you will be victorious
Friends assure me that you will
sweep Rabun County.
JOHN T LEDBETTER,
You can count on me for anything
I can do for you. I am Informed
by a prominent official of Lump
kin county that you will carry that
county by a big majority.
H. W. GRIZZLE,
Since Mr. Bell has made his speech
la our UtUe city, 1 am more convinced
than ever that you will carry Barrow
county There seems to be a very
strong Influence In your favor.
PRESTON H. WILLIAMS,
I am for DeLaPorriere all over, and
the prospects are good for him in this

REV. M. D. REED,
1 notice In the Atlanta Journal that
you are entering the Congressional
Race. You have my best wishes in
winnning the race, and if 1 can be of
any assistance to you, I shall certainly
gladly do so.
I shaved thirty-two men Saturday.
Sixteen of them told me frankly they

Hell, one for Collins, and the others

fight going, you will come out vic
torious In Hall county
I find everything looking Victorious
for you in the upper part of Banks
county, part of Hall and most all of
Habersham county where I have been.
A. K. ALLEN,

W. A. LEA,
Camming, Georgia, August 19, 1926.
Dear Sir and Friend:
I wish to say that I have been over most of Forsyth County the last
few days, and if something does not happen, you will get three votes to Mr.
Bell's ono in this county. I also find it about the same way in Hall and
Milton counties. 1 understand Mr. Bell will speak here later, but ha is
making you votes every time he speaks. It looks good to me.
Sincerely yours," * M. A. SMITH.

We want to say that we are proud of the opportunity to support >ou
on the Bth. Since hearing you make such a clean speech in Jefferson, Ga.,
complimenting your opponent* instead of “slinging mud.” we feel that your
views for the interest of the people of the 9th district are so broad and
liberal that every citizen that helps to send you to Congress will always be
proud of their representative. You are right, do not deal in personalities,
deal in higher and nobler things that are worth something to your county
and vour people. We are glad to say that we are sure you will win by an
overwhelming majority, and that the next Congressman will hail from Jack
son Countv. Anything we can do to assist you way, let us know.
Yours truly, LONG & GETZEN.
