DEATH OF EDWARD RUSSELL.
The former Kdlctr of the lavenprrt
Ciasetie raw Away at Mleneap
It. Early this morning Dr. W. A. Paul
received a dispatch from Minneapolis an
nouncing tbe serous illness of Edward
Russell, formerly of Dsvenport, with
pneumonia, and that there was little
hope of his recovery. This telegram
was followed soon after by one bearing
the distressing intelligence that Mr. Rus
sell bad breathtd his last at 1 2-4(1 this
morning. This news will be received
with fe lings of great sedntss, not only
n Davenport but in Rock Island and
Moline as well, forming as they do part
of the ermmunity in which Mr. Russell
lived so Ions as a morr.inmtunrl irflnpn.
Mr. Rucsrll was born in London Oct.
6, 1830. He came to America with his
fai her when a boy and located first at
LeClaire, where for several yems be pur
sued his trade, that of carpenter. This
was as early as September, 1848, and
from the time tbe slave question was first
agitated Mr. Russell became an active
contributor to the press on ihe subject.
His articles attracted wide attention acd
he soon drifted into prominence and was
offered tbe editorial chair of the Daven-
wuti unzeue. r or over a quarter ; I a
century he wieldtd a vigorous pen and
was recognized as a leader in Iowa poli
tics as well as journalism.
t He was appointed postmaster at Dav
enport in 1863 by President Lincoln, and
took possession in 1864. Pres tdent John
son removed him in 1855 and in 1869 he
wis reinstated by President Grant, and
remained until the election of President
Clevtland, when J. M. DeArmond super
seded him. . In 1885 he retired from the
editorial management of the Gazjtte, and
in 1887 removed to Minneapolis, where
he has since been in tbe real estate busi
ness and has prospered nicely. In 1863
he wrote the first article ever written in
advocacy of tbe Hennepin canal, and was
one of its staunchest and most ardent
supporters ever after, its success at last, a
little over a year ago, being due in a very
large measure to the work Mr. Russell
hid done for it in keeping it before
tie public, before congress and before
the country, and working for it faithfully.
Mr Russell was a mo6t indefatigable
worker. When he was postmaster at
Davenport and editor of the G.zettc at
the same time for so many years, it was
his custom to libor all day in tbe post
office, while most of tbe night was spent
ia the editorial rooms of the paper which
was his pride, and which during all tbe
years that lie was in charge of it, was
well worthy the pride of a man of his
ability acd energy. Tbe paper saw its
bst days under his guidance, and it was
not until be relinquished his control that
the "misfortune which extinguished its
light as an individual contemporary befell
it. A. few years ago he left the republi
ctn parly and subscribed himself to Mr
Cleveland's doctrine of tariff reform.
Mr. Russell was distinguished as a Y
M. C. A. woiker and ia church work
generally. He was a man who was faith-.
ful to his friends and lo his principles.
and in all bis acts, in bis every walk of
life proved himself a man.
He leaves a wife and two children,
Mrs. J. N. Gi'sr, of Minneapolis, and
Charles, who has become prominent in
A Fir.t jr.

son you expect us to entertain you with
