Edjtoh: — l have heard from some of my friends that they were sorry that I am a candidate for Aldermanic honors, subject to nomination in this primary Aug ust 28rd. from the fact, that 1 am a “one man” candidate. Now, this,.J most emphatically deny. I‘knew nothing of my name being used in the coming primary until a few days ago, when a petition was presented to me with 70 or I(K> citizens’ names on it asking that 1 allow the use of my name. This looks to me like more than one man, yea, more than one doz en men. You have seen the plat form on which 1 allow my name used. Do you endorse the plat form? Or will you defeat it be cause some people you don’t like endorse it. Very respectfully, 11. A. Stakkoho. i 1902 New Crop m 2 Turnip Seed! from the Grower Blackburn’s Drug Store HELLO, NEW YORK!
