If Mr Philipp commands the full party support and draws to himself the outside assitance that his friends expect there can be not doubt that he ides of November will see him re elected to membership on the board of county commissioners by a sub stantial majority. Mr. Philipp has been a close student of public affairs for many years and few men are aa well posted upon civic nnd political matters as he; certainly none are bet ter informed upon matters pertaining to this county and in re-electing him to the position he seeks the office will be conferred upon a candidate splen didly qualified to discharge its duties His incumbency of the county com missionershlp during the term now drawing to a close has been satisfac tory to the people nnd they will see to it that he is given an endorsement at the polls next month.

In his youth he had all of the educational advantages that come to the most fortunate of men and he made good use of his opportunities. In due course he was graduated from one of the best medical colleges in the coun try and established himself in Chi cago for the practice of hi 6 profession at the age of twenty-four. He soon built up an enviable clientele and continued to be a resident of Chicago until coming to Canon City five years ago, a change that was prompted 1 more by the genial climate of the Ar- j lrsnses valley than anything else.

Fredrickson’s administration of affairs as county treasurer have been eminently satisfactory to hfti constituents, so much so. in fact, that he was renominated by his party for another term and is regarded as the logical man for the office. * Mr. Fredrickson is a native at Sweden, but has lived practically all I of his life in this country; coming with i his parents to the United States when ; only 9 years old. The family set t tied in Chicago, but the great fire at October 9. 1871, destroyed the homo of its members and they emigrated to Saline county. Kan ; a state that was then attracting a larger immigration than any other in the Union. Mr. Fredrickson took a deep per sonal interest in politics from the time of his graduation from the pub lic schools and when only 24 yean of age was elected clerk of the district court in the county where he resided, a position he retained until 1887, when he removed to Co non City. The year after coming here he was appointed clerk of the county court, an office he filled till 1593. when he wa« made deputy county treasurer. I From 1<94 to 1899 he was city treas urer and for five or six years was a member of the board of educatloa.
