Men’s Furnisher and Shirt Maker. Andrew Russel Of Jacksonville, III. For State Treasurer. In another column will be found the formal announcement of An drew Russell for*the nomination to the office of state treasurer. To the people of this county he needs no introduction, as he has spent his whole life in this coun ty and here his name is the syn onym of honesty; competency and Republicanism. Mr. Russel has been all his life a banker— that is. when a mere boy he went into a bank as clerk and was pro moted. from time to time, until now he is recognized as one of the leading bankers of the state and has tilled the office of presi dent of the Bankers’ association and many other important posi tions in that organization. Last year Mr. Bussel had a large plu rality of the votes both a: the primary and of delegates in the convention: however, there was th< most uolable contest in Cook county that has ever been waged and it was believed to be*the best party policy to take a man from that touuty and place him at the head of the tick t. Mr. Russel and his friends accepted defeat with a loyalty that excited the ad miration of all and they now feel that he should be nominated by the next convention If success ful Mr. Russel will bring to the discharge of the duties of the of. tice the same faithfulness that has characterized his whole life and has made of him the model enterprising citizen, and his name will add much s trengthjto the ticket.
