To the Citizens of Georgia:

someone actively affiliated writh the
business of the shippers of the state
should be on the commission, and it
is due somewhat to this conviction
that I have decided to make the race.
It has been a long number of years
since ond of otir’citizens thus affi
liated has been on the commission.
Reasons justifying this representation
on the part of the shippers of the
state, as a whole, are too obvious for
I shall immediately begin an active
campaign throughout the state and
expect to go into every cpunty in the
state. In this way of campaigning,
I will have ample opportunity to
thoroughly familiarize myself with
the conditions throughout the state
and, particularly, getting « close-up
view of the agricutural interest,
which to my mind, is seriously await
a solution in matters of equitable
If elected, I shall strive to the ut
most ttf see that absolute justice is
done to shippers and carriers alike,
fostering every legitimate enterprise
to the end that Georgia may main
tain her stand in the future, as in the
past, as the Umpire State of the
