In that prirmu-y the majority of the people of the district voted'against Fietz for a THIRD TRKM. Evidently they believed that his promise made four years ago that 'ho would not seek a Third Term should be kept especially when made by a LAW ENFORCING OFFICER. Fietz' denounced Denver Dudley for seeking a Third Term. He has been favored by the people by being given four years in one of thc best offices in the state. He has held public office for many years. Since coming to this district the taxpayers have paid him more than $100,000.00 in salary and in addition he- has received a very large sum in fees nnd expenses. He ought to be grateful and satisfied and willing to give someone else a chance. lie calls attention to his family. ,1 too have a family, « wife nnd three children.
