The many friends of Mr. Frank M. Oliver are pleased to learn that he is a candidate for City Clerk, in whiclt l)osition he rendered the city such efficient service. Mr. Oliver is well known in this city, and in his former service lie is known to have been exceptionally courteous and obliging. His work in the office of City Clerk was of such a nature ;is to call for many COml)liments regard- ing the accuracy of systent and de tail. Later Mr. ()liver 1)ecamc l)rivate secretary of Mayor \\;Vm. R. Duley and remained with him througltout his administration. When Mr. Duley left the office, referring to Mr. Oliver, lie said: "1 would be unmindful of the great debt I owe you, were 1 to lcvve the city without expressing to you my al)l)reciation of your faithful ser- vices to nte, which has been rcsnl- tant in good to the interests (,f our city as well as your loyalty to :tile, 1)oth ;is mayor and a friend. "Without any intent of flattery, 1 can truthtully slty that the record of the City Clerk's office as kept by you not only reflect great credit on you, bnt are a credit to the city itself. The knowledge of the details of the city's affairs, gained there, had 1)een of be very greatest help to me in duties as my private secretary, rod still greater benefit in enabling ou to know that at some time iu the near future the public may express their appreciation by again placing yon ill charge of some department which your faithfulness and ability entitle you to." l.ittle Rock has grown very ral)idly in the past few years. To those who are not l)ersonally acquainted with Mr. ()liver, it is of interest to know that lie cante to Little Rock thirty years ago, then quite a young man He entered the Little Rock and Memphis Railway shops (now a part of the Rock Island system), as a machinist apprentice. After serving Iris apl)renticeshi 1) he worked as a journeyman, and through his effi- ciency advanced to the position of general foreman, which position lie resigned to accept the office of City Clerk. lie has always affiliated with union labor, having in the year [89o organized the first Machinists' Lodge in Arkansas, the "Arkansas Traveler Lodge No. 22," in Little ]lock, and also Cotton Belt I..odge No. 5, of ['ine lllnff.

Mr. Oliver is a thorough uniou nlan, and lie tlas numerous friends in all walks of life, who are lending him much en- couragement in his race for ('ity Clerk and believe that lie will 1)e elected 1)y a large n]ajority.
