That's the Way the Senatorial

That is the verdict of all fair
minded men In both political par
ties. And looking around In Chicago for
somo man to fill tlio bill of whom all
Chlcagoans can bo proud, all eyes
turn toward Col. George 11. Davis.
Davis Is the man.
His public and private record en
title him to tho honor.
Ills services to Chicago have al
ways been of the most patriotic na
ture and have always been of tho
highest value to Chicago's citizens.
Chlcagoans recognize tho fact that
the city's commercial importance re-
quires recognition In tho upper houso
of Congress. A fow Interviews on
tho subject are apicndcd:
F. M. Fargo of 0. II. Fargo & Co.,
wholesale boots and shoos I bellou
it wou'.d bo an excellent plan to have
a Senator hero whore wo could get at
him. So many public discussions, as
for Instance thoso nt tho Union
Leaguo Club, uro hold from tlmo to
time, and If we had a Senator hero
he would kcop in touch with public
sentiment in such things, and he
could then legislate hotter for us.
But what wo want most is an A 1
man, whether from Chicago or not.
But it scorns to mo wo ought to And
such a man in u community as largo
as ours. As for cholco of candidates
it Is bettor for me to say nothing.
M. D. Wells of M. D. Wells & Co.,
wholesale boots and shoes It would
bo a grand good thing If wo could
have a Senator from Chicago. My
reason is simply bocauso it Is Chi
cago. Wo havo big Interests here,
and we ought to havo a representa
tion In tho Sonata Wo havo tho
balanco of powor hero, ana It Is
strango if wo cannot nso it Thero
uro n number of men who havo been
"spoken of who would make good
Senators. I dn not nt this tlmo euro
to express my sentiments ns to
G. 12. I Dodgo, of Phelps, Dodgo
& l'ulmor, wbolcsulo boots and shoo
Wo should certainly liao u Sonutor
from Chicago. Our vote Is nearly
one-third that of tho 'whole State,
and our wealth and manufacturing
interests aro proportionally groat.
Where tho business und enterprise
are, from that pluco ought to couie
Edward E. Smith, of It. P. Smith
& Sons, wholesale boots and shoes
I feel that Chicago surely ought to
have a Senator. Chicago -represents
a big part of tho population, wealth
and business of tho State. Chicago
has done more for tho rest of the
State than the rest of tho Stato has
done for her. I am In favor of any
one of four or flvo of tho good cltl-
zens who have bcon suggested.
John 0. Harper, of Harper Bros.,
wholesale grocers Tho Senatorshlp
should be loft to Chicago to All. Her
population of nearly two million
ought to bo a sufficient plea. I have
not decided on any particular man as
my choice. Howover, I think George
It Davis would bo the proper man
for the office. As Director General
of, tho World's Fair ho was brought
prominently before tho public, and 1
think ho Bhould be choson to succeed
John J. Hill, Jr. Of course I want
tho Senator to boa Cook County man.
George 11. Davis would do credit to
the State or Illinois and to himself
In tho Senate chamber. Mr. Cullom
has no llfo lease on tho position
through his fancied resotublancc to
M C. Llghtner, Vico President of
tho Doard of Trade I would llko a
Chicago man elected United States
Senator. I favor Gcorgo It. Davis.
Edward Jones, of Noble Jones &
Co. Casually speaking, I would pro
fcr Gcorgo It. Davis.
E. S. Eldridgc, of Morrill & El
drldgo I feel pretty friendly toward
Gcorgo. It Davis. He Is a capablo
and honest man. Of course, It must
be a Chicago man. That Is only
Fred Espcrt, of Parliament & Es
port I would llko to soo Gcorgo It.
Davis elected bocauso ho is a Chicago
man and ono of undoubted ability
F. G. Logan Cook county Is en
titled to a Senator, from Its wealth,
population, and manufacturing Im
portance. Sinco tho Statu at largo
has Palmer, 1 don't see whyit Isn't
a fair basis for figuring. Wo have
so many good men in tho field that 1
deelino to make n cholco.
G. Montague While 1 do not llko
Cullom, un account of his voting for
thoantl-optlon bill, ho is a safo man,
und ono on whose garments there Is
no smirch. It Is an honor to him
that he Is a poor man. Howover, 1
want to sco n Chicago man in the
Senate, and Georgo It. Davis Is my
first choice. His record in Congress
was Al. Ills masterly handling of
tho World's Fair has brought him
prominently boforo the masses, and
I think him tho most popular candi
date. John' Darrett, of Hoyden &Co. I
am for Gcorgo It. Davis.
E. A. Giles Most assuredly tho
next United States Senator should bo '
a Chicago man. This city has tho
majority of influence, population, and
votes, and It would to an advantago
to us to havo a representative in tho
Senate. My preference Is for Col.
D. H. Burnham Yes, there Is no
question In my mind that our next
Senator should bo a Chicago man.
Wo certainly aro entitled to one. As
to who ho should be, thero is an
ubundanco of gooJ material, and we
cannot mako much of n mistake. My
first choice would naturally bo for
Georgo S. Will Its. I think Col. Da

A iiecent number of Transporta
tion contains un eluborato article on
aerial navigation by Dr. Edward
Pynchon, of Chicago. Dr. Pynehon
has a Hying machine in his mind.
Ho proposes to fly 200 miles an hour
by exploding nltrogolattno cartridges
by an electric current. Ho thinks
that the explosion of two two-ounco
nitrogelatlne cartridges every five
seconds would kick his machlno
through space at a uniform rata of
200 miles un hour at u total cost of
40 cents per milo for propulsion. Ho
thinks ono of his machines ought to
skim across tho Atlantic In less than
two day, currying 3,000 pounds of
nitrogelatlne, Urtcon passongors, a
crow of ten men and the necessary
equipment and baggage. Dr. Pynchon
is u Chicago man and that fact alone
should entltlo his theories to con
sideration. Ho 13 also u man who
hasuttalnod somo omlneno In his
profession and stands well among
thoso who know him as an original
Investigator. But whenovor ho gets
ready to gn sailing to Europo in u
nightmare loaded with a ton and a
half of nitrogelatlne wo would llko
to pick out his crow and his guests
from among our delinquent sub
scribers. We ftio accustomed to regard tho
Japanese as littlo bettor than half
civilized, even though recent treaties
with tho great powers bavo placed
her on an equal footing with them.
But there aro many ways In which
her peoplo aro eminently superior to
tho averago American, who might
profitably copy the example of tho
Japanese workman, who bathes his
wbolo body onco a day, and some
times twlco. Public baths are pro
vided on every street, which aro fed
by a constant current of cold and hot

Tlio Friday Club Continues Its Series of
tho Host Successful Hoetings
A mild sensation was caused In
Chicago last week by the elopement
of a wealthy rotlrcd photographer,
whose wife has been, as it were, 11 ut
tering on the outskirts of society for
some time, with ono of the lattcr's
most Intimate frionds, herself a mar
ried woman. Tho strange feature of
tho sad occurrence ono almost
unlquo, I fancy, in affairs of the kind
was tho husband's alleged action In
giving every particlo of his fortune
to his wife bi'fnr.o his Might, with tho
exception of loss than a thousand
dollars In cash with which to start
life. It Is the general verdict that
this act, whllo It cannot possibly pal
llato tho husband's offense, is suf
ficiently raro to deservo to go on
So successful a mcetiug of Chica
go's famous Friday Club as tbo one
held nt the Art Institute last wcok
has seldom gone on record. A now
feat uro was Introduced by tho Issu
ance of ln Itatlons to several liter
ary and stage celebrities to address
tho club; among thoso that accepted
this honor wqro Messrs. Joseph Jof
ferson, Sol Smith Hussell, Hamlin
Garland, Eugeno Field und Miss
Alice French, of Iowa, better known
ns "Octave Thanot." Ono of tho
conspicuous figures at tho meeting,
so I am told, wa) a North Sido mill
ionaire. Mr. Franklin Head, whoso
hospitality is as gorgeous ashtslovo
for literary peoplo is vast and far
reaching. Mr. Head was ono or the
earliest arrivals, und when Informed
by Mr. Flold that "Octavo Thanct"
w,is among tho list or expcctol
guests, remarked heartily: "Ik that
so? You must bring him over to ttio
houso. I want to know all tho out-
of-town literary fellows!"
Major Moses P. Handy, who made
n Hying trip to Chicngo for tho dlnnor
given by tho World's Fair ehlofs at
Kln-Ioy's, was given a warm wolcotno
by his old-tlmo friends nnd aa!
elates, who, unforgetrul of tho her
culean labors pei formed by him when
the merry carnival of last year was
raging In all its glory, regard it us
Very sad that tho famo of the Major's
notorious whlskors should havo beou
eclipsed, in his long absence, by those
or Col. Washington Hcslng. As for
tho dinner, which, of courso, was a
good one, It is, I believe, to bo made
an unnual affair, thus perpetuating
friendships botwuen numerous Jolly
good fellows und kcoplng a host of
pleasant memories green.
The cultivation of literary aud
stago peoplo has developed Into
something moro than a fad It might
almost bo called a passion among
the groat families of Chicago of late.
It is in connection with this fad, or
passion, that a rathor comical story
Is related at tho expense of a North
Side millionaire, whoso simultaneous
exit from tho marts of trade and en
trance into the giddy whirl of fashion
dato but a fow months back. Thero
was a big reception "on" ot tho palaco
of tho millionaire In question, and
ono of tho guests Invited thereto was
the comedian Nat Goodwin. Tho
latter arrived at tho hospltablo
portals somo tlmo after his perform
nncc down town possibly aboui mid
night very tired, and, as ho after
ward confessed, as hungry as n wolf.
He was met In the hall by his host,
who, thoroughly Imbued with' tho
wholcsomo Chicago Idea that a pro
fessional person invited into "society''
must necessarily expect to pay for tho
luxury before being permitted to en
Joy It, tore tho overcoat from his
guest's back, burst out, eagerly with:
"Well, old roan, whlch'll you do now
sing or reciter" "What's that?"
asked Goodwin, wearily. "Why, you
sec, wo'vo got n littlo program, and I
thought I'd llko to announce your
number got to do something to pay
for your supper, you know," returned
the host, Jocularly, with a playful
punch or ills forefinger Into his
guest's protruding ribs. Trozrnni.
eh?" returned the latter, conxuls-
ivcly grabbing his coat from a flun
key. "Well, you can Just announce,
if you will be so kind, that the next
number upon it will bo tho going of
Goodwin. Good-night!" And off ho
Tho fact that tho proportion of
contested divorce cases In Chicago to
those uncontested Is 2 to 1,250, or
something llko It, may possibly ac
count for tho eagerness with which
society Hocked to Judgo Ewlng'b
court-room to listen to the testimony
In tho now famous Stiles case. Tho
great wealth of Mr. Herbert Crane,
tho co-respondent, and tho very strik
ing beauty or Mrs. Lillian Stiles, the
defendant, combined to render tho
caso an Interesting one, and the
comely faces and brilliant toilets or
many conspicuous society matrons
woro observed in the gloomy templo
of Justice from day to day in conse
quence. As one of theso ladles ob
served in my hearing, the other
morning, after a long look at the
beautiful defendant, "one or tho
most shameful features ol the wholo
melancholy business lies In the atro
cious libels published ns portraits or
Mrs. Stiles In the newspapers."
It Is tho cotcrlo of glided Chicago
young mon that make their nightly
rendezvous at tho Lakota that tells a
decidedly humorous story nowadays
at tho expense or Mr. Ira Couch, an
extremely handsome, debonair and
polished youth, and tho heir to the
millions or tho vcucrnblo Mrs Couch.
According to all accounts, Mr. Couch
has within tho past few weeks devel
oped a mighty passion for horseflesh,
and tho particular animal he has
happened to purchasoon any particu
lar day occupies his thoughts to the
exclusion of any and every othor sub
ject. On tho evening of a day upon
which ho had acquired an uncommon
ly flno steed, Mr. Couch, accompanied
by tho-o two very bright und amiable
young clmpj, Messrs. "Hob" Fort and
Hussell Greene, dropped In at tho
Casino to tuko n look at tho wax
tlguics. Mr. Couch, bolng tired,
throw himself upon a divan nnd be
gan to think, as hn admits, uliouthls
day's purchase. A country couple,
obviously a brldo and groom, paused
to look at him, and tho man, after a
brief and rathor contemptuous scru
tiny, exclaimed: "How unnatural!
Dadly stuffed and no expression."
Naturally, tbo thing was too good to
keep, and, of course, tho now thor
oughly rcp.'ntant young man makes
his rounds nowadays ui.der tho ap
pellation or "Ira, tho bodly-stuffcd."
Tho latest rumor that I hear, con
corning my esteemed and ambitious
friend, Co). H. II. Kohldslaw, Is to
the effect t'mt ho Is negotiating for
tho purchaso of that very inlluontlal
organ, tho Chicago Trlbuno, with
Danker Molvlllo E. Stono ns a part
ner. Tho latter part of tho rumor
appears to mo Improbable, Inasmuch
as tho divergent political leanings or
tho two gontlomon would bo hardly
compatible with their Joint conduct
of a great Republican newspaper. I
Infer, howovor, that Colonel Kohld
slaw's negotiations for tbo Times and
Fress of this city havo fallen through,
which occasioned mo regret, as I
should llko to havo had so whole
soulcd and amiablo agontloman for a
fellow-townsman, plo-crustcd though
his great fortuno undoubtedly Is.
