On behalf of the executive committee
Dr. Woodruff gave out the following
review of the record of Gov. Deneen
and his opponents as a reason for the
support of the governor by the organi
"The Professional and Business
Men's association is for Gov. Deneen
because it believes in rewarding hon-
estr and efficiency. He gave us a direct
primary law, passed against terrific op
position. He gave the state a mens
system which took 80 per cent of the
employes out of polities. He adopted
business methods for the conduct, of
the state affairs. He rehabilitated the
state institutions. The state's re
sources have been conserved. The Uni
versity of Illinois has been raised to a
high state of efficiency and prosperity.
The farmer has been benefited by
wise legislation. The workshops and
the factory have been made safer.
Bailroad Bates Lowered.
"Bailroad and express rates have
been lowered. Bailroad travel is
cheaper because of the 2 cent law.
Insurance laws protecting the policy
nbiderrhare been passed. rbo-tand-
ard of education has been raised. A
model pure food law was enacted and
has been rigidly enforced. The na
tional guard is on a substantial foot
ing and is splendidly organized. Cit
ies may adopt the commission . form
of government and improve their lo
cal conditions.
"Chicago has profited from having
a chief executive that knew its needs.
The justice shops are no more. In
their place we have the Municipal
Court, which is recognized as a model.
The Lineoln Park and west park sys
tems have been rehabilitated and ex
tended. Our park system is now the
pride of our great city and state.
"The unfortunates have been trans
ferred from the county poor farms and
placed in state institutions, where they
are given good care under a central
ized board. The Donning institution
was taken over by the state and now
is tho, Chicago State hospital.
In all fairness to Governor Deneen,
each and every citizen within the con
fines of this state no difference what
his political views may be must give
Mir great credit for working out and
bringing around these many valuable
and lasting reforms, which are a great
blessing to all the people, rich and
poor alike residing in the grand old
State of HUnois.

The successful banker; high class business man; long and steadfast friend of
the Colored race and Bcpuhlican candidate for State Treasurer of Blinols.
Andrew Bussel, candidate of the
Bepublican party for Treasurer of DJi
nois, was born 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
DJinois, 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.
