A Call for Maj. B. F. Bean
EDITOR ENQUIRER:--A large number of the voters of Morgan County would like to see the office of county commissioner filled with men who have made a success in business and has some experience in the affairs of the county. Such a man is Maj. B. F. Bean, who has served us so faithfully during the past four years. He is able and competent to fill the office, and can be relied on to perform good work for the county. We believe the office should seek the man, and if Maj. Bean will accept and express his willingness to run for the office he will be elected. His best of friends throughout the county hope he will announce soon in the ENQUIRER.
