E. S. Andrews
                                                         [Lawyer, Realtor.]
                                                            Arkansas City.
                                               FROM THE NEWSPAPERS.
Arkansas City Republican, August 14, 1886.
E. S. Andrews, of Steubenville, Ohio, has located in our city. Mr. Andrews is an attorney; has practiced at Steubenville for a dozen years or more. The Daily Gazette gives Mr. Andrews this complimentary notice.
We deeply regret that E. S. Andrews, Esq., of the popular law firm of Andrews & Erskine, has finally concluded to remove to Kansas. We regret this removal not alone because of the friendship that exists between the Gazette and Mr. Andrews, but because of his sterling qualities of character that have made him a man of force whose citizenship is valuable to any community. He is “upright” and honest, and a lawyer of great ability, whose work at the Jefferson County bar stands at the very head for its excellence. He is a man who will command the respect and admiration of his fellow-citizens and wherever he locates because of his good qualities as a citizen and as a lawyer.

Oldham & Bittle, the new real estate agents, have hoisted several nobby new signs. Also, Artley, Andrews & Anderson.
Arkansas City Traveler, September 29, 1886.

The new law and real estate firm of Artley, Andrews & Anderson (office over the First National Bank), is making many friends and bids fair to become popular with our citizens. All three gentlemen have lately come to this city. The first named with a view to engage in some commercial business. The two latter to practice law. Getting together in social relation, they concluded to pool issues, and the result is, this tripartite alliance, with land and law for the exercise of their energies. Mr. S. Artley hails from St. Louis, and represents the extensive glass house of F. A. Drew, of that city. He has already contracted to furnish glass for the St. James Hotel, Frank J. Hess’s new insurance building, John L. Howard’s business block, and H. O. Meigs’s handsome residence. He came to this city during the summer, and likes it so well that he concluded to stay here.
E. S. Andrews and D. C. Anderson are both men from Ohio. The first named from Steubenville, and the latter from Kenton, Hardin County. They are young men, full of energy, and stirred with an honorable intention to make a name for themselves. Such men are a valuable addition to the community, and we hope to see them achieve success and renown.

Arkansas City Republican, Saturday, March 26, 1887. From Wednesday’s Daily.
The Arkansas City (Kansas) Republican publishes a full page advertisement of the business of Andrews & Anderson, attorneys at law and real estate agents. The senior member of this firm is our old friend, E. S. Andrews, and along with his host of Steubenville friends, we rise up and rejoice at the evidence of his prosperity. If ability and push are the requisites for success in the West, Stant will in time be at the top of the heap. A population composed of such men is what makes a live town. Steubenville (Ohio) Herald.
