HON. ANDREW BUSSEL.
The soccessfnl banker; high class business sum; long and steadfast friend of
the Colored race and Republican candidate for State Treasurer of Illinois.
Andrew Bussel, candidate of the
Republican party for Treasurer of Illi
nois, was bom in -Jacksonville, Illinois,
on June 17th, 1856, and has spent all
his busy life in this state. After re
ceiving his education- at the public
schools and at Illinois College, Mr. Bus
sel began a successful business career
in 1874 as a book-keeper in the Jack
sonville National Bank. He has been
in the banking business ever since, and
is now "Vice-President of the Ayers
National Bank of Jacksonville.
Mr. Bussel has always been found
to be clean, careful and unprejudiced,
standing fearless for justice to all men,
and particularly interested in the
moral, social and industrial uplift and
advancement of the Colored race.
He is not a stranger to the voters of
Illinois, having filled the office of State
Treasurer from 1908 to 1910 to the en
tire satisfaction of the people. He gave
the office his careful and personal at
tention, and during his term increased
the net profits to the state almost 100
per cent. He is presented to the voters
with entire confidence in his fitness,
and there ought not to be the slighest
doubt about his election. Adv't.

BOOKER T. WASHINGTON SENT TO THE MAT BY CHAMPION JACK
WHO DECLARED: "THAT THE GREAT WIZARD OF TUSKEGEE WAS
BEATEN UP IN NEW YORK CTTY FOR PEEPING INTO THE WRONG
KEYHOLE AND ATTEMPTING TO ENTER THE WRONG FLAT OCCU
PIED BY A WHITE LADY.
It is not our intention, of elaborating
in every particular, on all the phases
of the supposed troubles of Mrs. F.
Cameron-Falconet, of Minneapolis,
Minn and her easy attempt, to secure
or rescue, her daughter Lucile Cameron,
from the custody as she calls it, of
John Arthur Johnson, the heavy weight
prize fighter of the world, and her ap
peal to the White portion of the United
States, to aid her to protect her daugh
ter and to prevent her from perma
nently falling down or forward under
his evil influences. ,
It has never occurred to Mrs. Cam
eron, that there are three classes of
people in this country and only three
who have absolute protection: namely,
White women, whether their characters
are good or bad. White men and
Colored women in the Southern states
and other sections of the country who
consort with White men; not with the
honorable intention of marrying; but
simply to satisfy their beastly passions.
These three classes of Americans are
supreme under the laws of the land.
For White women will shoot White men
down in cold blood on the slightest
provocation. Then they are set at lib
erty by the 'courts and become the
reigning queens of society and White
men. are ever ready, to redder their
hands in the blood of any Negro, who
attempts to wink at any White woman;
it makes sot the slightest difference
how low she may be, in the scale of
humanity and to end the life of any
and every Negro, who attempts to as
sociate with Colored women, that ne
desires .to appropriate unto himself.
This is Ms idea of fatrnean and jus
tice in America. In the ease of Miss
Ladle Cameron, being of age; the was

to reside; she has attended high wine
suppers and banquets at the Hotel
Sherman in a party or parties of ten
to twenty-five prominent and rich
White men of this city, no Negro be

The daily papers refused to publish
or at least they did not publish, the
names of these prominent and rich
White men, who put on the "high wine

of calling on them to shake them down

It appears that Miss Cameron, for
several months resided at the Brevoort
Hotel, which is a very expensive place
to tarry in; and not being wealthy her
self and seemingly not being employed
at that time; it is hard for us to un
derstand, how a beautiful young girl
as she isk claimed to be, eould put on
so much style, and wear the finest and
the most expensive duds; unless some
one was putting up the money for her

It further appears, that Miss Cam

cago, has possessed an inclination to

Democratic candidate for re-election to congress from the' Fourth Congressional
At .the--congressional election in 190G
tifter a spirited contest, with Charles
Wharton, the Hon. James 7. MeDer
mott, was elected to congress from the
fourth congressional district. He was
re-elected in 1903 and in 1910, each
time with increased majorities, show
ing that he stands high in the estima
tion of the voters in his district, re
gardless of their race, color or nation
ality and that a large number of in
dependent and progressive Republicans
at each election, record their votes in
his favor, feeling that he is plenty
good enough, to represent them in the
halls of Congress.
Congressman McDermott, not with
any brass bands, in the past, diligently
labored in Congress for the best inter
est of all the people, in his district, the
six years that he has so faithfully
served them. This fact was largely
manifested at the contest at the prim
aries last ApriL
At that time with two opponents in
the field, he ran in under the wire
away ahead of both of them, with a
good healthy majority at his back.
Congressman McDermott, who always
talks keen, sharp and right to tho
point; has in many ways in the past
both in and out of Congress, shown his
friendship for the Colored race, and
we take much pleasure in stating, that
many Afro-American voters in the
Fourth Congressional district, as many
of them supported him at tho pri
maries; will on Tuesday, November 5th,
assist, to re-elect him to Congress for
the fourth term from the Fourth Con
gressional district, of Illinois. Adv't.
