Fortunatclj. however, th s data of

lUGGLsT BOSS OT ALL.
When It lOmcsto being an all around po
litical boss Mr. Marcus Aureiius Hanna can
give Tom I'iatt, Matt Qua) nLd all the
others that have heretofore been classed
under that head cards and spades and
the little casino and then bent them out.
He has not had their experience by a long
shot; In fact, he raav be said to have gone
Into the business quite rcctntlv, but that
he is a thirt) third degree boss, with the
biggest kind of a B, notodv will deny that
has watched bis management of the ante
convention McKinlcv campaign and then
his management of the convention itself.
From the verv outset he unflinchingly lit Id
hisuvvn against all combinations. He had
the men nominated whom he bad picked
out for first and second place, and it is not
Improbable that it ma turn out that bis
seeming reluctance to accept the money
plank Tui its'i5rescnt form waV merely
simulated and tliit lie actually shaped It

Credit must-be given Mr. Hanna, how
ever, for one feature of his bossism. It is
not offensive!) olitmslve. His is the Iron
Innd covered with velvet. It ma) be that
thisls merel) because he bas Just graduated
as a bos, and that it will wear off with
time. The undeniable fact Is, however,
thai Mr. Hanna U toda) the only real boss
ta the Republican party, and if McKinley
should be elected through some now not
Imaginable combination of circumstances,
Mr. Hanna will remain the boss for four
years from the fourth day of March next.
There can be no mistake about that.
TWO PLEASING PICTUHES
Now that the shouting Is all over and
the drifting away of tbe smoke of balt'o
admits ot a clear view of the field, two of
tbelatetandidatcs forthe Republican I'reil
dentlal nomination present a most pleasing
aspect. In all the ante-convention tunnoll
and excitement and during the fret and
fume ot that great gathering Thomas B.
Reed and William B. Allison have main
tained a dlgairied composure. Each one
has attended to the duties imposed upon
him by bis position, and since tbe adjourn
inent ot Congre&s relieved them of the
st rain of work they hive followed thecoure
ot events, in which both had more than
a passing Interest, with calm and Jurtld-4
attention. Their conduct Is in such marked
contrast to the general demeanor of men
similarly situated as to make It cotapicu
ous and refreshing.
Mr. Reed's demeanor all through hasbcen
especially adinlrablc Placed in a posi
tion of great political influence and power
he bas steadfastly resisted the temptation
If ever It approached htm to use it for
the furtherance of his personal ambition.
Uls course as Speaker was regulated by
tbe strictest rule of official resnslbility,
and in the discharge of hlsf unctions as the
presiding officer of the Bouse hedid not at
tempt to reward friends or punish enemies
At the very beginning ot tbe cession he
marked out for blmy.lt the course width
be deemed best calculated to promote tbe
interests not only ot the country, but ot
bis parly also, and from. that path he did
not dev late, nnrollow himself to be cajoled
by bis friends or Intimidated by, bis ad
verearlcs. To the very last lie was the
firm but courteous presiding officer, and
the calm. Judicious guardian or bis party's
Interests. Whatever success tbe party
achieves in tbe coming campaign will be
due In no small measure lo Thomas Brack

Tbe visit of gov. Campbell is a par
ticularly notewortb) evtut. Inasmuch as
the District will have an opportunity ot
iKranng the first speech by any of the big
guns ot the other side. For tbe last three
mouths tbe country has been paying more
or less attention to tbe Republican party
alone, which has Just presented Its can
didates. It bas only been very occasionally
that the heavy artillery on the Democratic
side bas had a word to say with tbe ex
ception ot the recent brief interview vducn
sared by President Cleveland, which created
no particular enthusiasm, principally be
cause it said nothing about McKinley.
.Gov. Campbell on the other hand will
possibly have a great deal to say about
the major and his.starf officers, and if
there Is anybody who knows all about
him it must be Gov: Campbell. In ract, It
is said that Gov. Campbell has made a
special subject or the-apostle of protection
noil some other things, and has certainly
alluded to him In some of his campaigns.
From this pont ot view the meeting to
night may be regarded as the opening of
the national Democratic convention. It
can be taken for granted that there will
be wagon loads of fun and entertainment
at this meeting tonight, to say nothing ot
the fireworks, local and national.

A pleasing feature of tne telegrams' was
tbe inige number coming from ladles alt
over the country. t
Maj. McKinley expressed particularly
heart) satisfaction over tbe numerous
responses from the far West approving
nfs nomination and tbe p'atform and prom

In the crush succeeding the nomination
and the confusion that extended oyer the
wholp nlgut, the visit of several bodies to
the bouse escaped notice. One of tbe very
first to arrive was a delegation of com
mercial travelers, representing nearly
every Statein the Union, wbobappenedto

The de'i gallon was under command of
Capt. H.F. Weston, of Pennsylvania; Col
J. 11. Keating, ot Michigan, and Lieut. W.

George Voesoi, and 11. O. Newell or

II. Smith told Low, at his Instance, Mr.

his lire, wLile he lived In Poland. There
had been a galLcring of old (oaliers ou
one occasloa, and at the close of tbe meet

oung man out of bed and asked him to

tiionded iiud made ttiem a line address.
The losses by tteftlast nlghtare greater
than at first reported. Eleven rifled
Iiocket-booksivcrc found ou tbe grounds
about the Louse and one man had a valuable
diamond stud torn fiotn his stlrt front.
The Cnsrocloa McKinley Club, twenty
