-OUR CANDIDATES.
FOR COUNTY TREASURER.
There is no local office in the gift of our people of which the candidate or incumbant is more closely scrutinized, than Treasurer. First his honesty, then his capability and his knowledge of the peculiar conditions connected with the affairs of his office. It is not merely the receiving and disbursement of money, any honest man could do that in a satisfactory manner, but there is one of the most complicated and intricate set of accounts extant, in the matters pertaining to taxation. The accounts between the county and state, between the county and the several townships, keeping each fund in a separate account and all in balance, requires a man thoroughly conversant with the details of the business. Such a man is placed in nomination in the person of John HANNA of Beaver Creek. A pioneer of the county, a thoroughly practical farmer, an educated business man, who has served his township repeatedly as Clerk, Treasurer and Supervisor, and has served two terms as Register of Deeds, and deputy County Clerk, and deputy County Treasurer, thus becoming familiar with all the routine work. As a patriotic citizen he served a three months term with the 85th Ohio Vol., then coming to Michigan reinlisted in the 11th Cavalry, and served to the close of the rebellion. Always a man among men, he will honor the office to which he will be elected. (15 Oct 1896)
