Gen. Harrison has very few inti
mate and confidential friends, and it
is a question as to who is the closest
to him, either politically or personal

Miller and Elam, who, perhaps, pos
sess his confidence in the greatest de

the street from the general's house
and the families are exceedingly inti

has acted for Gen. Harrison in a
number of ways, was with him at Bass
Island and represented the candidate
at the Blaine reception in New York.

two to pass many of their evenings to
gether smoking and chatting, and this
association indicates the most acreca-
