He began- by quoting a statement of
Judge Webster : that Word had given
the best business administration of bis
office r whlchhaff"been given" tor to
"If you were hiring a man to head
a department In a department store,'
continued the orator, "you would nor
sail his polltlcsy-but would -acquaint
yourself -with his qualities of honesty,
intelligence and adherence to duty. A
parallel may be drawn in the offlo of
sheriff. It Is a business i department
In the county government which needs
faithfulness and efficiency, not politics,
for Its proper administration."
The speaker pointed to a custom Of
sheriffs of the past, who put ths fees
derived from - th' service of certain
papers. Into their own pockets, on th
ground that ths county was not en
titled to them because they had not
been " issued - by- nrof -th-sourte-f

moneys Tom Word had turhed' Into the
county treasury, accomplishing. In two
years, a saving of 12,500.

McAllister related the story oi
Word's fight against the gamblers, say

to reimburse Word for the money hs
expended In holding th gambling
houses, though- the supreme court said
he was light n doing- so. That Word

"A vote for Tom Word will be a vote

There was wild enthusiasm . when
