'didn't pretend to bo a suporman' and
that if ho Is elected, as I have no
doubt ho will bo, ho will go back to
tho old prlnciplo thnt tho ofllco of tho
president is to administer legislation

advisers possible to secure.
"I had never bofora mot tho sena

ing him I felt that I could talk to him
us easily as I can talk to any ono in

strong mnn, whoso personality is in

the same time one of tho best In-
formed men in tho country and one
of the most modest. (
"He seemed especially solicitous to
learn moro about tho various prob

formation is ihoro than morely gen
oral. Ho said that ho was anxious
not only to get, but cquully anxious
to tnko ndvlco on matters from men

IN THE CITY HALL
What the City Officials and Men
of Affairs Are Doing for the
Tho controversy between the city
nnd tho Strauss Busculo Bridge com
pany, In which tho hitter ohtnlncl
Judgment In the federal court for pat
ent Infringement in connection with
tho erection of several bridges, came
a stop noaror settlement when tho
council finance committee concurred
In a recommendation of 11 subcommit
tee, headed by Aid. V. S. Schwartz,
that $225,000 plus tho taxable cost of
tho suit be paid In Judgment to the
Tho proposed settlement Ih condi
tioned on tho willingness of the com
pany to ngree to stipulations that for
the use of tho Strauss design and pat
ent lights in the Roosevelt road nnd
West Madison street bridges a total
amount of 160,000 for both structures
bo included In tho Judgment and that
for the use of tho design and patents

which Is for fixing the amount to bo
paid by the city to the plaintiff com
pany, permitting entry of a Judgment
In favor of tho bridge company and
against tho city for the main amount
nnd court costs covering all claims
under tho Strauss patents In connec
tion with tho building of tho Monroe,
Washington, Lako, 92nd, Franklin-
Orleans and Wells street nnd the
Michigan and Grand nvonuo bridges.
Tho subcommittee hns tho Strauss
suit undor Investigation slnco last
March. CouiiboI and engineers woro
employed to go thoroughly Into nil
phases of tho caso and nothing could
bo found which would Justify nn of
fort In having tho caso reopened by
tho United States Court of Appeals,
which sustained tho Judgment of tho
lower court nfter It had been appealed
by tho city. Tho hlghor court ro
mnndod tho caso back to District
Judgo Carpenter's court for adjudi
cation of damages, tho first suit being
meroly for the establishment of tho
I validity of the patent.
therefore, I felt myself frco to talk to
him straight from tho shoulder," con
tinued Mr. Reynolds. "I am moro
than pleased in his remark that ho
Ldldn't bclievo In 'a ono man admini
stration' becauso it leaves mo with
tho Impression thnt he will contlnuo
to be tho student of human affair
he has always been. It's a hopeful
Mr. Reynolds doclnrod ho hoped
that Senator Harding would relin
quish his "front porch campaign" af
ter n short time.
"Tho only criticism I novo heard of
tho man was that ho was not widely
known to tho public outsldo of .Ohio,"
said Mr. Reynolds. "After spondlng
three hours with him nnd In discus
sion with Will H. Hays, J. B. Reyn
olds of tho natlonnl commlttco and
Gov. Coolldgo, I mndo up my mind
thnt ho was tho typo of man whoso
acquaintance nnd popularity with tho
general public would grow."
"His face, even in repose, bears n
lurking Binllo and-his personality is
so pleasing Umt It will bo benoflclnl
to iflm -tt let tho pcoplo' soo him
nnd becomo nwaro of his geniality."
Mr. Reynolds characterized Gov.
Coolldgo as nn Ideal running muto for
Senator Harding and n "keen, clear
headed executive, whoso writings
carry n great deal of force."
"If tho Strauss concern nccepts our
offer," said Aid. Henry D. Cnpltaln,
who with Aldermen Fetter nnd Kost
ner mado up the subcommittee with
Chairman Schwartz, ''it will bo the
end of a long controversy, tho first
bill of complaint having boon filed In
March, 1913. Our action today places
us In n position to ncgotlnto with tho
company on tho amount of dnmagus
tho city shall pay and It Is our belief
thnt n settlement will bo the result."
Tho financial stringency of tho city
was relieved when n check for $."00.
