Ho was born lu the town of West Chicago thlrly-Ilve years ago. I'or Vcventoeii years he has resided, mid silll resides, In thu northwest part of the city, hi a house which he purchased befoto ho was yet 120 years of nge. lie Is one of those conservative mid Indus trious cltlKcni who must lie known to lie appreciated, mid who seldom come to light In the world of politics, but when made public servants prove to be the most active and conscientious lu the la bors they perforin. At an early age he entered the manu facturing establishment of Murray ft Co., where, by faithful Industry mid strict attention to business, he advanc ed lo a position as manager. HehaH fit nil times proved himself to bo a'jiublio-splrlted citizen lu local af fairs, and never failed to take an active part In any enterprise that promised to promote the welfare ot the community In which lie lives. In the spring of 1802 he was persuad ed by IiIh neighbor to stand as a can did, itc for election to the City Council, mid although the Klfleenth ward was ul that time known lis a Democratic strotighold, the people rallied to his sup jiort regardless of past party a till la I Ions, mid ho was elected. Ills turni In the Council extended over iho World's Kalr period; during which ilmo bo served with distinction on many Important committees, among sther3 the committee on ways mid melius for tlie relict of the unemployed, to which ho was appointed by the late Curler II. Harrison. Afterwards, dur ing tho period of business depression which followed the World's Fair, ho served on a commltteo appointed to con fer with tho Civic Federation and kin dred organizations to devise some meth od of lellcvlng the distress then prevail ing amontj the unemployed of this great s'lly. .MwnyH .i strong advocate of any pro ject having for Its object the Imptnvc meiit of conditions lu tho world of la bor, ho prepared and In hod need In the Council an ordinance which provided for u radical change In the unsanitary mid otherwise, distressing conditions surrounding child labor. In commenting upon the resolution submitted as a preliminary lu this mat icr, tho Night Hour Herald, under tho caption, "For Labor's Advancement," gave u detailed report of tho same, and then added: "Aid. Iteddlck Is ono of tho ouug members of tho Council. His hobby Is measures of a philanthropic nature, on which ho expends considera ble attention. Ho mado n speech lu favor of Ills resolution, after which It was adopted without debate. This mat ter should bo agitated until tho reform outlined nbnvo has been effected. The piescut condition Is a disgrace to civ ilization." After tho passage of the ordinance, at tho conclusion of a long editorial on 1ho subject, tho Chicago Tribune said: "Thus tho action, of tho Council prom ises to bo tho llrst ofllclul step In an im portant elevation of tho men, womeu Jiud child: eu, who havo for bo long been victims of a rapacity which wll force 1'cllow creatures down Into tho mud for tho sake of dollars, paltry enough when 'ompared with tbe misery and degra- Nation through which thote dollars are gullied. If the promise be vet tiled the act Ion will prove to be one of the most Important mid valuable measures ever taken by the city authorities. It will be a lever for raising out of a slough of mental, moral and physical tilth many thousands, who but for It would have 1 in il no hope for the Iuipineuieiit of their miserable condition." In October, IMC', after a careful In vestigation In relation to the eat-e of boys at our City House of Correction, during which hu discovered that under existing conditions tJiey were dally brought In contact with older and more hardened criminals, he decided that such a statu of affairs had a particular ly demorallr.lng effect upon boys Im prisoned for llrst or trivial offense, mitl believing It to be the duty of an en lightened community to suppress rather than encourage crime, to reform rather than uselessly punish Juvenile offenders, ho Introduced In the Council n resolution providing for an appropria tion of eighty thousand dollars to be .MsW.ssssB ifJBBWiSBBBBBBHffimTrv.

He was always Interested In any worthy measure Introduced lu the City Council, and did much to defeat objec tionable legislation In that body, a note worthy example of this being his vole to sustain Mayor Hopkins' veto of the famous or Infamous Watson gas or dluauce, a measure much condemned by tho press at that time. At tho end of his term, finding that public duties Interfered too much with his private business, ho voluntarily re tired from public otllce, although en couraged by the press and his constitu ents to stand for re-election, , Ou Jnu. 1, 18IHI, he was elected clerk of Iho Drainage Hoard, a most Impor tant position, which ho has tilled lu a manlier that hits won for him the eoutl deuce and esteem of the Hoard of Trus tees and his associates lu the district. Floyd K. Wlilttemore, llcptlhllcnii eaudldate for State Treasurer, was born In tho State of New York, but came to Illinois lit an early ago with his parents, who located H Sycamore, De Kalb County. Ho was educated at tho public: mid High schools at that place. His purpose to become a lawyer was ehauged when James If, lle,vcrldge, of Sycamore, brother of Uovernor Hove-' ridge, was elected Htato Treasurer. Immediately after tho election young Whlttemori) was Induced to go to Sprlugileld to take charge, of tho Htato Treasury. While tilling this engage ment lu the Treasury Department ho attracted the attention of Jacob Burnt, at that it I me tho owner of tho largest iluauclal Institution lu tho State outside of Chicago, and accepted tho position of cashier of tho IJunii bunk, which he tilled with marked ability until the or ganization of tho State National Hank of Sprlugileld, when ho was chosen Its cashier. Mr. Wlilttemore held this po sition for more than twenty years. Af terwards ho became the acting assist ant treasurer of tho United States at Chicago, under President Harrison, where he superintended the receipt mid payment of more than tlvo hundred million dollars. In January, 18l)o, he became Assistant Stnto Treasurer, which position ho now holds. Mr. Whlttemoro Is essentially a busi ness man, and has boon uniformly suc cessful. In addition to other enter prises ho has for many years been largely engaged lu farming operations lu Sangamon mid Madison Counties. Mr. Whlttemoro always has beeu a staiicji Itcpuhllcun ami a zealous advo cate of the party's principles, but has never before been u cnudldato for of fice. Durlug his long residence at the capital ho has acquired a wide 'ac quaintance throughout ho State with the leaders of his party, and has enjoy All . llk Ainu MAMMAMAl AMl tltllll.ul tn (W", Iff fileiidshlp of (lovertiors Oglesby, llev erldge, Ctilloin, Hamilton, 1'lfer mid Tanner, as well as of the Slate otllcers who Mcru'd with tlieni. He was nominated .Mine 11 by ac el.iniatloii, being the only Republican who eer lecelved the unanimous In dorsement of the party for that nlllce. Hon. Daniel V. Mills, who will be re elected lo Congress from the J'otirtli Cnngressuiunl Dlsttlct, Is now serving his llrst term. It Is conceded that he has been a useful representative and one upon whom the, l'nslik'iil could al ways rely, lie Is a man of mature years, sound upon all of the Issues of the day, deliberate, and of excellent judgment. He Is a man of remarkable executive ability, which was most fully displayed while Warden of Cook County Hospital, a position of greater Importance 'than any other lu this county. While iildcimmi from the Twelfth Ward for four years he was faithful, energetic, trustworthy, his name was never connected with any of the scandals of Ihose days. So lu all his walks of life. Il Is a self-taaile man. Having been boiu mi a farm, where he worlail until he was lu 1iW teens, when he entered his brother's store In mercantile pin suits. He Dual ly started lu a store himself lu Cor win, Ohio, engaging lu grain mid pork packing business, which he prosecuted with zeal and success until the break ing out of the war of the rebellion, when be enlisted In the One Hundred mid i:ighlleth Ohio Volunteer Infantry. He was captain of Company D, mid served until mustered out at the close. of the war. And there as ever since his name Is without spot or blemish. He Is a member of Columbia Post, No. 7(11!. (1. A. It.: Slloaui Lodge. A. 1 - A. M.: York Chapter. No. 1 18. It. A. M.: Columbia Couitiimidery, No. K, Oriental Consistory: and Medltiah Tem ple. A. A. O. N. M. S.: Metiokeii. Illinois and Lincoln Clubs. Such men can only be useful to their constituents mid their country by continuous service, such men should not be retired with one term. Chicago Is weal: In Its delegation for this reason. The West, Fast ami South are strong because they keep their men continuously In the service until they become thoroughly educated diplomats. Mr. Mills' vote upon every bill was perfectly consistent with tho doctrine he nlways preached, and es pecially so upon the bill for tho work liigiuou known as the labor bill. If Mr. Mills Is one thing more than another It Is that he Is a friend of the mail that earns his bread by the sweat of his brow. He knows exactly what that means, as he has been there himself. In tho arena of State polities (ho North Side has nominated the well known mid popular Fred A. Itttsse to represent as Senator thu Twenty-llrst Senatorial District. This gentleman has done so well lu the past that It Is need less to speak at any length concerning his services to his district. All know him north of tho river, and nil Itepttbll cans and ninny Democrats hall him as u royal good fellow. Among the most prominent politicians throughout the county and Stato Hon. Fred A. Httsse Is esteemed as a ninn whoso services ou behalf of Republicanism are well High Invaluable. It will bo remembered that Mr. Husso as representative of the Twenty-llrst District did much active work on behalf of tho people by bis vote and lutluouco being directed against alt vicious legislation that came iipMurlng the whole time ho represent ed his district lu tlm lower house. A voto for Jesuo Holdout for Superior Court Judge Is n vote for good govern ment. It Is claimed that certain gentlemen ou tho Itepubllenu County Committee have sent the word down tho lino that Hoy O. West must bo elected to the Hoard of Itevlew, even though Uphatii ami Meaeliani go to defeat. However this may be, IJpham and Meacham's friends are legion throughout Cook County, mid they Intend to see that their friends have fair play election day. Keep Judge Jonas Hutchlm-on ou the Superior Court bench, where he be longs.
