We present her with a likeness of our City Solicitor, Tom C. Whitmore. "Tom" as he is familiarly called by a legion of friends is a man of recognized legal attainments, and from the date of his establishment here his practice has steadily grown. As a trial lawyer and counselor he has won a reputation throughout the county and his services are in constant demand. He has an analytical mind is a close student and has splendid ability as a speaker.

Mr. Whitmore was graduated from Cornell College and received his legal training in the law department of the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. After his admission to practice in Iowa he became associated with the law firm of Hays & Amos at his old home, Knoxville, Iowa, which connection he retained until January 1st, 1907, when he came to Atlantic to engage in practice. Coming here practically a stranger, his devotion to his work soon won for him the consideration of the older members of the profession and the esteem and confidence of the public generally. He has been City Solicitor of Atlantic for three consecutive terms, and at each succeeding election has received an increased majority over the preceeding one.

Since locating here he has been honored by being tendered an associate professorship in law by the University of Michigan, and when the University of Washington decided to enlarge its law school last year, he was invited to become a member of its faculty. Prefering an active practice to the life of a school-man, Mr. Whitmore refused both offers.

Tom Whitmore is asking the suffrage of the republicans of Cass county in the June primaries of Cass county in the June primaries for the nomination for County Attorney. The duties and responsibilities of the city attorney's office have peculiarly fitted him for the office he is now seeking. Should his ambitions receive the approval of the voters, he will execute the functions of the office of County Attorney efficiently and economically, the interests of the people will be carefully guarded, and all who have business with the office will receive courteous treatment.
