He hns nlnys wleldwl n largo Inllnsnce

ThU influence lias constantly been
used to thwart Senator Sherman's
Fresulcntliil nmbitlnn nml to boost

tho hottest kind. Ho mnnaced to con

which, by tho way, was McKlntoy's

the backing of Major MclClnlcy and hII
the other of Ohio a great Ilepubllrins
except Senator Sherman. To him Mr.
Monaghan betmtk hlmn-lf, ami snl.1 that
under the circumstances he would not
ask him to support the candidate from
Columbiana County, nf whteh New
I.tsbon It tbo proud capital. He would,
hnwtxer. aik the Senator to keep Ida
able hand off. The Senator declined
to accede to this modest ropiest In a
frigid way that would have frown
Mooaghan s middle aged blood In
hi vein, had It been of the
congealing kind. Hut It watn't.
He went right on In hta search
for office, lie wanted to be Sixth Au
ditor of the Treasury, ami Secretary
Wisdom had practically promised It to
lilm. Sherman interfered and Monae
han was sidetracked aud Mr. T. U.
Coulter of Ohio was run into the Audi
Mr. Monaghan went off to see Set ro
tary ltlaltie. In hi sympathetic ear he
told hi tale of woo. Likewise tin
burdened hi store of wrath. Mr.
Illalne was sorry for his friend. Mr.
MonaKhan, very sorry. Ob hit own
account he was really well pleased.
He cast about for a consulship to be
stow upon the faithful follower who
had fallen a ktlm to tbe frigid
wrath of the Ohio Senator.
He found vacant the consulship at
Chatham, Ontario, and ollered it to lilm.
Mr. Monaghan declined. He didn't go
la for diplomacy if he had he wouldn't
have fought for Blaine and against
Sherman In Ohio. Secretary itlalae
looked again, and found a better consul
ship, that of Hamilton, Ontario. Mr.
Monaghan accepted it, received hUcom
mlastoB ami Instructions and hied him
self blithely away to hi new post of
Dear la wind that this was Secretary
Itlalae' personal appointment. Mr.
Monaakan didn't have a paper on file
in the Department of State, They
were all filed over at tbe Treasury De
partment. In due course tbe nomina
tion went to the Senate. There It slum
bered. Arctic traveler tell ui of tbe
wonderful effect extreme c4d ha In
producing eternal sleep. Tbe gelid
Senator saw that Mr. Monaghan' nomi
nation was enwrapped with a more than
Ah lie cold. It ww Antarctic a well.
When Congress adjourned en October
1 and an aceuumt ot stock was taken
Mr. Monaghan' nomuatkm was found
rigid and frigid, In an obscure pigeon
hole uaaeted upon.
Mr. Monaghan was no longer Consul
at Hamilton, Ontario. Everybody
was astonished. Secretary Blaine
was surprised. Major McKinley
was amemwL They thought Mr.
Monaghan had been. rninnail
loeg ago. Mr. Moaaghan thought
either that he had been or surely woukl
be confirmed There were no charge
against him. Ko fight was madelba
him. It was siaaply a case of Insidi

hate been unavailing.
Gordon has gained ground steadily,
