He said ''It was clutraeteristic of Harry
Madison to live for others, and his up
right life, dignified bearing and cor

of withdrawals, deals and unreasonable

custor in the political nrenu with the
iiuple statement that he Is working
for the Republican nomination for
Bheriff and that he expsuts to win. lie
is a man of the people and at present
occupies a position of trust with thf
Lackawanna Iron and Steel company
than wtiich there Is no company in the
United States which pays more strict
attention to the quality of men it
stl.cts for responsible positions. A
brief peu picture of such a one seems
particularly nppropos at this time.
(SKETCH OF MU. OKELL.
George Washington Okell was born
in Scranton Nov. 27, lb 10, on Mill
street, and today lives but a few doors
from the scene of bis birth. Liks tbe
great mats of American boys he began
his career among tbe laboring class,
and from the poorly paid breaker boy
has risen to oue of the most responsi
ble positions in the gift of a large cor
poration solely through honesty und
ability. Such a climb without the use
of modern ''pulls" or wealth is typical
of an American in the full sense of tbe
word, and is particularly typical of the
progressiveuess of the subject of this
Mr. Okell's stock in trade was a com
mon school educatiou received in
Scranton when he began bis first work
us a breaker boy at the old Diamond
mines, He next sought employment
as a furnace dour tender in the old roll
ing mill of the Lackawanna Iron and
Steel company. By strict attention to
duty he so merited the confidence of
ibe company thut be rapidly gradu
ated from one position to unother until
eighteen yeurs ago be was appoiuted
superintendent of tbe timber lands of
the company. That is his present po
sition. There is nothing to chroniole con
cerning the political offices held by Mr.
Okell from tbe (act that be never held
any; hie political experience has, nntil
now, beau confined to the lines of the
Republican party, where be has always
been found us the man wbowould labor
indefatigably to promote any proper Hue
of work whiali would redound to the
benefit of bis party, It is for these past
services that he now looks to the
party for reward, and Mr. Okell makes
uo concealment of bis position in this
STEPPED ASIDE THREE YEARS AQO.
There ure not many candidates who
could be induced to relinquish, a nomi
nation canvass us Mr, O.tell did, under
the circumstuneus wbicli surround. d
his shrievalty nomination canvass lu
lS'Jl. During that contest he had for
an opponent John 8. LsTouche, and at
the ltqii- si of party leaders retired iu
lavor of Mr. La louche for tbe sake of
harmony. At that time men high iu
the councils of the Republican party
promised their support to Mr. Okell
during this oampiign,and it is a source
of gratification to him that these men
bave kept their word.
It is the boast of Mr. Okell's friends
thut many of tbe prominent Republi
cans, among them Judge Arcbbald and
Suuator Wutres, who were elected to
i.igh t dikes, owed their victories in a
measure to the efforts of tbe subject of
this article. These are but casual in
stances of the work done by Mr. Okell
and lor which ho feels secure in tbe
b. liiif that he will be rewarded.
Another fact which promises to cnt a
very favorable figure in Mr. Oueli's
caudlducy is that be is a man of the
people, jrepresents the healthful growth
of poor but eventually sturdy and suc
cessful American manhood nnd will
without doubt receive the almost uu-

His standiuir among the wnrkingmen,
however, is not one whit different than
bis standing uinong a more financially
lortnnate class. To all he is Georui.
Okell without the prefix of "mister,"
and with the middle mime " Washing
ton" the candidate tliink- he is sulll
ciently endowed with titles.
HE POSSESSES A CLEAN RECOUD.
After eveu so brief a comment on his
public life ami history it seems scarce
ly necessary to dwell up m Mr. Okell's
cbatacter. It is sumcixnt to state that
Ids name and character ure clean and
have betn kept aloof from any under
takings which could retisct discredit
upon their owner.
Th demands made upon Mr. Okoll
by virtue of his position with the
Lackawanna Iron and 1 Steel company
have not deterred bim from lending bis
influence and support to many of
Scranton's seml-publio and wholly
public organiz itions. To his unselfish
efforts and willingneis to work where
duty culls htm, is due in a great degree
the success of many losal organiz itions.
In this respect the fire department
might be mentioned. Mr. O.iell has
been a fireman since be was a boy und
was at one time foreman of the Lady
Washington company. He is at present
an active and one of the most valued
members of the Pbenix Hose com
pany. Since Mr. Okoll began an active can
vass about tiie city und county protes
tutlons of support aud predictions of
success have come unsolicited from all
classes of peoplo. Tilts faot of itself
might be construed us the keynote of
Mr. Okell's hope for election, his
popularity being confined to uo partic
