it nepotism lu a violent form, and an

It next asks why Ilenjamiu Harrison
lewurilrd his family with an office
-which belongs to the people. When,
we would ask, lias it disfranchised a
man or deprived 1dm of Ids rights as
tine of the people because his brother

John McGovem, cdltoiiat writer on
tho Chicago Htrald, lias written ono
novel, a stioug one, but of the city

ern is the Chicago Curlyle. His sen
tences are like stones from a sling,
his thoughts nbovo precedent or
picscnt fashion. Ho is In a literary'
group what Ingalls Is lu the
United States Senate. Ho Is n
student, has a brain, and Is what, per
haps, the man whoso name is used in
tlie simile may not be, a crusader. Ho
must be heard from, for he is a power
naturally. On n newspaper less bold
and just than the newspaper on which
he writes, In its editorial tone, ho
would be almost a bull in a china shop.
Ho Is- at home where ho is, but there
cannot be his only field.

A young man who is just winning a
place among verse writers is Ernest lie
Gaffcy, a young attorney, who, when
not in his office or in court, Is in tho
country with rod or dog nnd gun. IIo
has contributed verses nnd short
sketches which have a Thorcaii-isli
ipiality to them commanding regard
lrom all who can appreciate. How
much of his timo will lu tho future be
devoted to divorce suits or ballot-box
cases and how much to the muse nono

doesn't know himself.
Chicago has other writers who havo
their squircshlp won, and who yet will
have their spurs. Tills is but a uon

bit of gossip about some
