HILL'S BUSINESS COLLEGEI We teach Bookkeeping, short- hand, Civil Service, Salesmanship and Telegraphy. Modern conven- ience. Everything sanitary and up to date. R. H. HILL, W.W. BROWN, President. Manager. DAN D. QUINN Candidate for Circuit Clerk. One of the well known and popu- lar candidates, and one whose friends and supporters entertain the belief that lie will be elected to the posi- tion which he seeks is Dan D. Quinn, candidate for the Circuit Clerk. This popular gentleman has lived in Lit- tle Rock, Ark., for the past thirty-two years, and has always been a booster, not only for the city, but for the county and state as well. Mr. Quinn was engaged in husiness with his brother, Joe P. Quinn, for years, and later was connected with the Gus Blass Dry Goods Contpany, having held a posttion of trust with this concern. While connected with the company he was universally liked by employers, fellow salesmen and the public in general: lie is always polite and courteous, and made a host of friends out of Iris customers. He has also been chief deputy cir- cuit clerk under t:. J. Ginocchio, and hy his attention, duty and extreme kindness to all who have visited this office, has made many friends and supporters. Mr. Quinn zs not only willing, but abundantly able to prop- erly fill the position which he seeks, and your vote and support will be fully appreciated. There is probably no other candi- date in this part of the country making the race for a similar office who stands higher with the voters than does Dan D. Quinn. He knows how to make and hold friends and they are many and are nnmbered hy his acquaintances. ]f you want to vote for a man who has only the best interests of Iris city and county at heart, and one that will fill' the psition to which he aspires with sat- isfaction to the people as a whole, cast your vote for Dan D. Quinn, candidate for Circuit Clerk. B. L. ROBERTS, SHERIFF. The peace and good order of mod- ern colnmunities, to say nothing of their commercial stability, are de- pendent in large measure upon the ability and character of those offi- cers whose duty it is to enforce tile laws. Among officers of this class none is more maportant than the sher iff, and this community is most for- tunate in having chosen for this re- sponsible position a man of the rec- ognized ability and wide experience of B. L. Roberts. He is a man of unusual executive force, sound judg- ment and the strictest integrity, and is one of the most important citizens of this section, having been formerly employed in a responsible capacity by the St. Louis, Iron Mountain and Southern Railway Company. That he has met his responsible duties in the most satisfactory manner is at- tested by the fact tltat he was elected to his second term without opposi- tion. In addition to his duties as sheriff, Mr. Roberts is also ex-of- ficio collector of taxes for the county, and in this capacity he has shown himself the kind of an official who thinks of the best interests of the county first, last, and all the time, The complexity and magnitude of his duties may, perhaps, be suggested by the statement that the proper con- duct of Iris office requires the em- ployment of a staff of fifteen experi- enced active deputies. Mr. Roberts is making an official record which re- flects credit upon the community as well as upon himself. He is the high- est bonded official in the entire state and the receipts of his office for Pu- laski county run over $i,5oo,ooo.oo yearly. FRED SCHADER FOR COUNTY TREASURER. One of the most poptflar candi- dates in the field at the present time is Mr. Fred Schader, who is capable and qualified to fill the position which he seeks. 'He is not running on the demerits of an opponent, but upon his own merits, as have been proven in other positions of honor and trust. Mr. Schader's private life and public career s open to the knowledge of all. He has made a success of his business, and has shown the public that he could, and would, conduct a public oftice on business lines, by turning back into the treasury, while Sheriff and Col- lector of Pulaski county, large sums an excess fees. Though you had no reduction in your taxes, this money helped to build a number of roads, streets and bridges, wtuch is the same as a reduction in taxes, or at least assisted in keeping the rate down. After serving four years as Sheriff and Collector, Mr. Schader retired and gave other Democrats an opportunity. He promises that if elected Treasurer of Pulaski county he will devote his entire tinte to the office, thereby saving the people the expense of extra dePUties and keep the office in the county courthouse. He will give a clean business ad- ministration, and turn back to the county every cent over and above what the law allows him. You tried him as sheriff and collector; if you think he filled the position honestly and economically, give him your vote and support. JOE ASHER. It will be generally conceded that there is probably no man in public life in this section who is so peculiar- ly fitted for the duties of the high office which he holds as the lion. Joe Asher, judge of the county court, as the following levying court connnit- tee on county judges report, at which fifty-five justices were present, will show : To the Members of the Levying Court of Pulaski County: We your conunittee, to whonl was referred the report of the county judge, beg to report that we have carefully considered same, and we find that the finances of the county are in excellent condition; tttat there is not a dollar of floating indebted- hess against the county, and there is a handsonae balance in the treasury. When we consider the large expense of runmng the cotmty government and the large amount that has been expended on necessary public im- provements we feel that the taxpay- ers are to be congratulated on the healthy condition of the finances of the county and we congratulate Judge Asher on tile able and economical manner in. which he has conducted the affairs of the county in order for this condition to exist. We heartily approve of the action of Judge Asher in working the state convicts front this county on the public roads. From his report we see that he has given a great deal of his time and attention to the roads, bridges and streets, anti we are glad to say the most of the work that is now being done thereon is of a.per- manent character, and it will be only a few years until we have good roads in every direction to the coutlty line, and until all of our principal streets are paved. Your committee is glad to see that in pursnance of a resolu- tion ado. ted by the last levying court steps have been taken to erect an addition or annex to the present courthouse. Sneh a bnilding is very much needed, as the county has long since outgrown the old one, and it is in excellent financial condition to connnence its erection. In conclusion, we wish to say that perntanent public improvements have been made where needed, and that the affairs of the county are being conducted in an honest and econom- ical manner, and that the county is getting full value for every dollar ex- pended. C. T. COFFMAN, GORDON N. PEAY, W. M. KAVANAUGH. The above report certainly speaks for itself. J. H. LEVECK Contractor and Builder. Argents. The rapid development of all parts of Arkansas during the past two de- cades has called into wide demand the services of building and contract- ing experts. Prominent in this class is J. H. Leveck, who is widely recog- nized in Central Arkansas as one of the most competent and successful men in his line. in this part of tlte country.

One is the two-story brick Kimball apart- manta, now in course of construction at 62-614 Center street, and the other is a store building of substan- tial size for Topf & Wright, which is now being'erected in Argenta, on East Washington avenue.

DR. B. H. MERCHANT. Veterinary Infirmary. Dr. B. ]--[ I Merchants' Veterinary Infirmary is located at 2IS West Fourth street and is equiiped with most every necessary facility for the purpose and with a Bell Tele- phone, which affords good local and long distance service. This is one of the best intirmaries of the kind in the state for the treatment of horses, dogs, etc., and Dr. Merchant suc- cessfully treats all curable diseases horse flesh is heir to. There are separate stalls for horses and separate departments for dogs and this hospital is most always tilled to capacity. Dr. Merchant is a veteri- nary surgeon and dentist of ntueh more than ordinary ahility in his profession and you will not make a ntistake to give your lame or sick horses and dogs over to hint for care and treatment.

LITTLE ROCK RAILWAY AND ELECTRIC COMPANY. Little Rock is fortunate to have men at the head of its pnblic ntili- ties who study the needs of the peo- ple attd cater to them, as well as their own financial advancement. This is especially true of its railway and electric conipany. The broad gauge policy of this company has been strikingly illustrated in the large amount of extension and improve-] ment work which has been under- taken dnring the present year. Some of these inaprovements inclnde the installation of a new pumping sys- teln, a new steaul turhine, several pieces of lighting machinery, etc., as well as the large nnprovements made in rite rail equipment anti roadbed of the street car lines in downtown dis- tricts.

The plant of the Little Rock Rail- way and Electric Company is also the source of the city's commercial elec- tric light supply. The merchants' street lighting of Little Rock is no- tably excellent, and this excellence is due entirely to the exceptional fa- cilities and able management of the Arch street plant.

In addition to ol)erate tile street car lines, aud sup- plying electric light, the plant of this contlxmy is also tile principal source of electric power of all kinds in this city.

McRAE GROCERY COMPANY. Few branches of mercantile pur- suit are so lnportam as that of the retail grocer, and it may be correctly stated none is more essential o the welfare of the people, x, Ve cannot get along without food, and that chtss of mercantile Ilouscs whose business it is to provide table sup- plies, enjoy a potency scarcely ap- preciaied by tlae average citizc. /\\;l]long the pronlincnt and popular establishments whose business is to supply the large and growing popu- lation c,f Little-Rock and Argenta with groceries is rite flue stores of the McRae Grocery Company.

The Argenta store is located at 15 \\;Vest X, Vashington avenue, and s equipped with a Bell telel)hone, No. 3o62. The custonlers of these stores are nunlbered by the hundreds, and one of the best evidences of the high esleent in which the stores are held is the fact that many of the custom- ers who hegan trading with thent when the doors were first opened for business are antong the best custont- ers today.
