He stands for a cleaner city and a better protection to our boys and girls and believes in a dollar's worth for a dollar.

Barrett, cashier for the Valley National bank for many years, and who still holds that position, has allowed his friends to present his name as a candidate for school treasurer for Des Moines, subject to the election March 9th. Mr. Barrett has spent most of his life here, 37 years, and by his long citizenship his financial interest in Des Moines and his good judgment makes him one of the most favorable men that Des Moines could find for such a place of having charge of the funds of our public and Ugh schools. He has never hield an elective office ui"tils life and is regarded in the financial circles as being one of the most competent men in our city to handle the funds of our district.

I can say without fear of contradiction that he is one of tne best friends of the colored race, having at all times defended them when the opportunity would come, and I feel that the colored people should give him one of their votes, as there are two directors to be elected at the coming election Monday.
