TO THE DEMOCRATIC VOTERS
OF DEWITT COUNTY, TEXAS.
AS WELL AS EFFICIENT
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN:
When I announced as a candidate for
the office of County Judge of DeWitt
County, Texas, last February, I pro-
mised you if elected to that office,
that 1 would strive diligently and
faithfully to discharge the duties of
the office according to the Constitu-
tion and laws of the State; that I
Would make the discharge of the
duties of the office my first business;
and that I would not let my private
business interfere with my official
As you know, since the 12th of last
March, I have been your county judge.
As a result thereof, I have not been
able to make as active a campaign
-as I should have like to make, and
probably as you think I should have
made; nor have I been able to meet
as many of you as I had hoped to
meet. You know that the county
judge has no deputy and that his
duties are of such a nature that he
can not entrust them to a deputy. I
could not leave my office to make
an active campaign, without neglect-
ing my duties as county judge. This
I could not conscientiously do; and I
do not believe you would wish or ex-
pect me to do that. Again I make
you the same promises in regard to
the discharge of the duties of the of-
fice of county judge, should you see
fit to elect me to the office, that I
made you last February; and if my
discharge of the duties of this office
for the last four and one half months
meet with your approval, I hereby
respectfully solicit your support and
J. L. BOAL.
Vote for Frank Schoppe for County
Superintendent of Lavaca, the live
wire, the soldier boys’ and peoples’
candidate. (Pol. Adv.)

rdlng to a telegram re-
To my Friends, the Citizens and
Voters of Lavaca County.
I am offering for re-election to the
Office of County Clerk of Lavaca
County, on the manner in which I
have attended to the duties of the of-
fice In the past. I have been your
clerk for 3 Vi years, and during this
time have given my best time and at-
tention to the office. All my work
has been done in a correct and ef-
ficient manner, all work is up to date,
indexes properly kept, and I can place
my hands on any papers in the office
at any time and have always been
prompt and polite about it. I ad
minister the office impartially, have
no petty friends nor enemies, but all
are treated alike and with equal
courtesy. The longer a man holds a
clerical office the better lie gets and
nothing has occured why I should not
be re elected, having served only 3*4
I have at all times been ready and
willing to do my full duty towards
my Government, have purchased
Liberty Bonds, War Savings Stamps
and have generously contributed to
the Reft Cross; Y. M. C. A. and K. of
C. and have also collected considera-
ble money for the Red Cross: In
helping young men to fill out their
papers I have at any time, not even
in the way beginning, ever charged
one cent from any one. as I felt it my
duty to render all assistance possible
to those who do the fighting for us.
My papers is for their safar return
with victory on their banners.
The primaries are close, I have my
office work to do and look after and
have not been able to see every one
personally, but I appreciate the sup-
port of all. The fact that I may not
have personally solicited your support
was withheld from me only on account
of office work that must be attended
And especially do I ask the Good
Ladies of the County to give my
candidacy serious consideration and
I assure them that your support and
vote will be appreciated and long
I make my campaign myself, and
ask for re-election on the efficient
work that 1 have done in the past.
I thank you all.
Yours very truly,
J. A, SOMMERLATTE.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
Being one of tile members of the
finance committee and having solicited
aid for (he Red Cross, knowing all
who have contributed to such benev-
olent cause, amongst those so con-
tributing, is Mr. J. A. Sommerlatte,
our present County Clerk. He has
cheerfully and on his own accord con-
tributed the amount of $5.CO a month
for a period of six months.
He and his family are members of
the Red Cross Association.
Anyone designing to slander him on
account of not contributing to the Red
Cross, is doing him a great injustice.
