A WORD TO
THE PEOPLES’ DEMOCRATIC LEAGUE sub
mits the above ticket to the electors of this com
munity with the same confidence in the integrity and
capacity of its nominees and with the same faith in
its success at the polls on January the eighth as it
did in the primary of June the twelfth of the past
In this as in that instance every effort has been
made to present to the people of this city as the
candidates of this party men whose honesty ancK
integrity in private life is without blemish and whose
capacity and desire to efficiently discharge their
duties to the public in official life is beyond question.
Second only to this prime requisite of integrity
and capability THE PEOPLES DEMOCRATIC
LEAGUE has made a studied effort to make its
nominees truly representative of the people. Every
SAVANNAH, GA., JANUARY 5, 1907.
class of our citizens has been accorded representation
on this ticket and no man has been proscribed on
account of his rank, calling or religious convictions.
It is in every sense a democratic ticket, owing no
allegiance to any political boss or political machine
and will be responsible to the people only for the
faithful and just discharge of their duties.
Sensible of the fact that the business affairs of
the municipal government should be carefully con
served and wisely administered in the interest of the
private citizen, it has chosen as its candidate for
Mayor one whose record as a progressive, able and
SUCCESSFUL business man stands second to none
in this community, and whose private life and public
record is without a stain.
In the contest of last June THE PEOPLES
DEMOCRATIC LEAGUE, recognizing the just
claim of the laboring men of this community to
representation, nominated and elected as a member
of the legislature of this State from this County
Joseph J. McCarthy, a high type of the laboring
man and devoted to the interests of labor. In the
present contest it has selected to represent labor in
the city government two men of as high character
and fine a sense of duty as the laboring men of this
community have within their ranks, Julius B. Gaudry
and Charles G. Wilkinson.
Leaving aside, however, the question, of
men, the present contest has riser o a great trial
of principle and in such a contest THE PEOPLES
DEMOCRATIC LEAGUE has grounded its appeal
to the voter upon immutable principles of right and
honest government which must appeal to every good
and patriotic citizen.. It stands for rule by the peo
ple, it stands for the suppression of vice and it stands
for the impartial administration of law.
In this contest as in the one of last June, the
movement of the PEOPLES DEMOCRATIC
LEAGUE to secure clean and honest government
has met with bitter and unrelenting opposition from
the only morning journal in this city. It has used
and is using every effort to discredit and defeat the
nominees of this party and, short only of the manly
course of editorial endorsement, it is using every
power that partisan zeal can inspire to retain in
power a corrupt and discredited political machine.
Laboring under this disadvantage we have resorted
to this medium to present to the people of this city
our claims to the support and confidence of the voters
of this community.
Resting secure in the thought that every man
who values the good name of his city and regards
the promptings of his conscience will lend us hi 3
active support, we heartily invite good citizen
in this community to stand by us in the present con
test and assist us to restore the government of the
city to the hands of those to whom it belongs—the
