The following text is presented here in complete form, as it originally appeared in print. Spelling and typographical errors have been preserved as in the original.
Will you turn out to the Ward Meetings this evening, promptly at half past seven o’clock, or will you not? That is the question. If you will not, then don’t grumble because your preferences are not carried out or because delegates are selected whom you do not like.
Every Republican should feel a personal interest in the selection of discreet, judicious delegates, and in the nomination of good men for Trustees and members of the Board of Education.
Turn out then, and show by your presence that you feel a proper interest in our city election. It is really of more importance to the tax payers of Cleveland to have a good municipal Government, than to have a Republican County triumph. Again, we say, turn out!
