Leander Pound announces in
this week’s issue of the Enter-
prise for Commissioner of the
Third District, subject to action
of the Democratic Primary, Aug-
ust 4, 1914.
Mr. Pound was born and rais-
ed in the county of Crawford,
near Van Buren, Ark., and ed-
ucated in the common schools.
He is a naturalized farmer, being
born and raised on the farm. He
has never missed a crop and is
always willing to extend any
material assistance or knowledge
he may possess to the use of his
He has lived in Oklahoma and
Pottawatomie county eight years
residing near Saint Louis, just
east of Asher.
He comes before the voters of
this district asking their sdpport
in the interest of his candidacy,
and his platform is worthy of
the most minute consideration.
Mr. Pound is highly recommend-
ed by his many friends and his
character and business integrity
are above reproach. If was by
the incessant requests of his
many friends that he consented
to make this race. In 1914 he was
sent to Oklahoma City as a del-
egate by the farmers to investi-
gate H. H. Smith.
Mr. Pound says:
“I believe the office of Com-
missioner is one of the most im-
portant offices in the county and
the commissioners should possess

ness principle and not in an ex-

should be representatives of the

should be let to the lowest bidder

If I am elected as your com-
missioner I want the people to

Mr. Pound has been highly rec-
ommended to us by his farmer
friends; also prominent business
men. He is proclaimed a man of
his word, firm and unyielding in
the sense of duty, staunch and
loyal to old democracy and to a
public trust, with a kind word
to all whom he may meet, ever
gentle and courteous.
We believe Mr. Pound is qual-
ified in every respect to fill this
public office and if he is chosen
by the voters of this district as
their next commissioner we_k-
lieve he will ‘‘make good.”
