"THE POLITICAL BOSS."
Qratibio Plcturo of a
Tho political boss is no longor an
unknown quantity in American poli
tics. Tho patient masses have boon
slow to rocognizo tho unpleasant
fact, ami havo endeavored to explain,
account for, anil at titnos ovon apolo
gize for his obnoxious prcsonco.
Thoy havo so far failed to produce
a singlo satisfactory roasou for his
oxistenco in tho practical affairs of
government. He has nouo of tho
qualities which fit men for tho re
sponsible duties of leadership. His
executive ability, at most, is novor
above mediocrity, and, gonorally, it
is far below that point. As a rulo,
up to tho date of his entrance into
the arena of practical politics, ho
has had no training or exporienco iu
the administration of publio affairs,
and, thoreforo, lacks that mental
i.inun ai nnnnccnrv ir llM mnai rtf
octivo and olliciont work in tho pub
lic sorvico. His statesmanship is
sadly wanting. But tho avorago po
litical boss is not wholly devoid of
qualities which at loast commend
him to his follows. Often ho is an
active man of affairs. His acquaint
ance with men is extensive; his me
thods aro frequently skillful; his ro
sorvo powor somotimos great. Ho is
always a man of infinite pretense.
Ho novor hesitates at anything. It
is uffrontory and loquacity that se
cure for him a certain prominence,
where a more modest and retiring,
but much moro worthy nature, must
romam unrecognized, ilis solf-con-coit
is without limit. Ho talks much
of what ho has done and what ho
can do. Nothing is impossible with
him. As a political manipulator the
average boss is thoroughly unscrupu
lous. If he has an honest political
principle ho will not lot it interfere
with his political onds, however dis
honest they may bo. Ho is in poli
tics to win, and tho moro matter of
principle shall not stand in tho way
to success. Because of these dis
honest methods so frequently em
ployed by tho political boss, ono of
the dangers which, threaten tho
practical politics of our times and
country confronts us, the tendency
of which is and must be to keep out
of active politics many clean, wise
and honest nion. Certainly this is
not a healthy condition of affairs.
Tho motives of tho political boss
are novor lofty and disinterested.
Thoy aro essentially low and selfish.
Usually ho is in politics for rovonuo
only. Sometimes ho is in quest of
political self-aggrandizement. Ho is
never there solely and exclusively
for his country's good. He has no
laudable ambition, no dovotiou to
principle, no self-sacrificing patriot
ism. Ho is at all times, and under
all conditions and circumstances,
tho constant and abiding conserva
tor of his own dearest interests.
Aud to secure them, ho will hesitate
at nothing. It is truo that ho is a
shrewd and crafty follow, fertile in
resources, unscrupulous iu methods,
nypoenticai in motives, without in
tegrity, without largo capacity, with
out honor. Why, then, should wo
tolerate him? Is there need for him?
There can bo but ono answer. It is
a travesty on tho history of these
latter-day political conditions of
America that such a fungus growth
has been allowed to exist and flour
ish. Ho has no propor placo iu our
midst. Ho is foreign to tho spirit of
our institutions. Improve public
opinion, demand better requirements
for public servants, and thus make
tho life of tho political boss impossi
ble in free America. It can bo dono.
It ought to bo done. I believe it
will bo dono. Duane Mowry, Esq., in
American Journal of Politics for April.
HAYES A HERO.
Governor McKinloy Talks of the
.Late Ex-President in War.
The first battle in which I saw
him was at Carnifox Forry, iu West
Virginia, ono of the earliest battles
of tho war. That was a small affair
compared with tho many in which
he and tho regiment woro subse
quently engaged, but ho showed at
that time great self-possession, with
groat courage and enthusiasm. From
that timo ho had tho supreme confi
dence of all his soldiers. Ho was
soon promoted to the Colonolcy of
tho regiment which ho continued to
command until ho was made a
Brigadier-General and put in com-
iiiuuu mi uiu unguuu. xio um me
tho honor to mnko mo ono of his
stair oflicors in tho first brigade ho
commanded, which was made up of
Ohio and West Virginia troops.
Tho closer I was brought to him tho
more I was impressed with his groat
qualities both of head and hoart;
simple and straightforward in every
thing; puro in speoch, novor indulg
ing in a story of questionable char
acter, and novor ongaging in conver
sation which was not elevating. I
do not roniembor in tho four yours I
was associated with him, to havo
heard him in conversation utter an
Hayes took dosperato chancos iu
battle. Ho seomod like ono inspir
ed. His quiet nature at once chang
ed. Ho pormitled nothing to stand
in his way. Ho novor sought secur
ity, and he often recklessly exposed
hinibulf. He novor asked his meu to
go whero ho would not load, aud ho
was always in tho load. Ho was
wounded at South Mountain, and it
was with tho greatost difficulty that
ho was induced to loavo tho flold,
and he did not go until loss of
blood made it imperative. Ho was
carried back to an improvised hospi
tal in an old barnorstablo. His first
solicitude was that his wife should
know the exact nuturo of his injury
bo sho should not bo alarmod by tho
exaggerated statements that might
go out from tho nowspapor corre
spondents. Ho dictated a mebsagu
for her to Colonel Markhruit, who
carriud it to Washington, which was
tho nearest telegraph station, telling
her of his truo condition. It is need
less to Hay that she canto on at once
and nursed him until lie was able
to be brought to Ohio, lie remain
ed away but a short whileindeed,
ho relumed before ho was fit. The

Ono of Harrison's Stories.
On tho first day of his recent duck
shooting experionco in Illinois, ox
Presidout Harrison felt very stiff in
his arms aud legs, and complained
of it to his companions. The next
day his friends equipped him in a
now shirt and boots, which fitted
him loosely. When ho camo homo
that night ho laughingly remarked:
"I am somewhat liko an old fellow I
know in Hardiiisburg, Ind. Ho bo
came firmly convinced that ho was
about to bo stricken with apoplexy,
as ho suffered nearly all day long
with a smothered fooling. Ho visit
ed a well-known physician iu a near
by town, who, after examining him
said: 'My friend, all you need is a
larger collar.' "
Noah's Ii6ng Voyage.
W. C. Dodge's vory interesting
account of tho loneliness of his
forty-three days and '1000 miles of
sea voyage to Panama in 1850 with
out sighting a single vessel is pretty
wide of tho mark in tho statement
that Noah was "out only forty days"
in his voyage on tho waters of tho
flood. A ro-reading of tho vor3' defi
nite Mosaic account of the timo that
Noah and his family woro shut up
in tho ark will, wo think, satisfy Mr.
Dodge that instead of forty days it
was ono year aud ten days. Wash
A lady asks to bo answered, undor
tho name of "Louise," the following
question: "Having boon invited to
attend a church wedding, and not
being intimately acquainted with
either the brido or groom, nor in
vited to tho reception, am I expected
to send a present?" Tho answer is,
No. Presents aro optional, and not
obligatory, ovon if invited to tho re
ception, and depend upon friend
ships and tho dogreo of intimacy.
