"It is true that a communication was dictated by me for use in tho present Fort Dodge campaign. After dictating the letter I was forced to leave town, and never saw the epistle until it appeared 'in print and never signed it. I was made to say in that letter 'the only reason L, , _. -- " "«*.y * i_,^m that I ran was to try to stop tho raising of the wages of city em- ployes and other excessive expenses in the way of purchasing machinery and other equipment' What I dictated was that the reason I ran was to try and stop tho raising of wages of city officials--not employes. "For the laboring man for whom I have contended all my life I have profound sympathy. For the swivel chair official who does little, but draw an excessive wage I have nothing but contempt. "May 1 ask that the same wide publicity be accorded this letter as was given the previous communication.
