As you aie also doubtless aware there are many issues in the cam paign; issues which l hold to iae pai amount to ail others In this portlcu lar stage o£ Brunswick’s growth and development. I believe that the time Is bore lor a greater Brunswick and I believe that we of Branawi.k aie In posses slou of the material factors to make that greater ErCnswick and make It now. You have probably noticed that i am pledged to a platform of "pro gress and prosperity and the muni pal ownership of public utilities” In this city. The former has been my platform for the 36 years Jthat 1 have lived In Brunswick, the latter plank ts one that comes as an en vironment of public conditions that must enlarge to keep pace with the Industrial and commercial march of the present time. I hold that It ts the first duty of •very citizen to devote his beet ef forts to the upbuilding of that mu nicipality which give* him his dally bread; .1 believe that It is absolutely the duty of every man to answer that of duty when It oomea from *&e classes and the masses of the people, and for these two good rea sons I an standing /before the peopi* of this dty aa a candidate tor tty fctgbMt eftce within their gift M ttrfi bm I dun not go into mar # i mm to*** into this fc* * * **** ** ftor The Brunswick News. friends are to rally on Thursday nlsht 1 desire to ask the privilege of a division of time on that occa sion with you. it is undestood oj course that in the event of your ac ceptance of this invitation we shall enter into a full and impartial dis cussion of the manifold economica questions and issues that now con front the people of this city.

The people of Douglas and Coffet •:ounty yesterday a ge.iu .ne sample ot push, energy and en iciprise when they went before tnt trustees of t gricultural college .o tne Eievft ug.essioual uio rrict in Waycross and won over a number of competitors. There were wounties thoie iu wnich larger cltie.. man Douglas are located, but none ot them were aole to meet tne libera. „i£er made oy uie Coffee county me tropolis. As announced in The News eev aral days ago Governor Terrel, called a meeting ot tne trustees in this district tor yesterday in Way cross, bach county was allowed one trustee, Glynn being represented by v\. F. Symons. Several of the coun ties in the district were bidders to; tne college, among them being Coi tee. Ware, Irwin, Fierce and others. The otter made by Coffee was a great surprise to the trustees. It wa, thought when the offers of Ware auu Irwin were read that one ot tnese two couuuea would surely secure UK college, but when the claim and offe. from Ccffee were put before the meeting it did not take the trustees long to arrive at a decision. Here .8 what Coffee offered: Fifty acre; of land. $60,000 in cash and free light and water. That was enough to land the college. Both Ware and Irwin, as well as Pierce, made liberal offers, but it could not compete with that of th. people of Coffee county, and the agricultural college for the Elovent' district will be located in the thriv Ing little city of Douglas.
