Copyright, 1910, by American Press Association.
Remember how you thrilled when you heard the news of how tho heroic
little band of men guided the Mcrrlmnc Into Santiago harbor a dozen years
ago? And perhaps you recall the tall, slim young man that toured the country
shortly after the little unpleasantness with Spain and how tho anxious thou
sands showered cheers, applause, flowers and even kisses on him. No doubt
you recall Richmond P. Hobson. he of Merrlniac fame. Well, he Is still nllve.
Had you forgotten that? Richmond P. is no longer in the nnvy, as you recall.
Instead, ho Is a hard plugging congressman from Alabama, who wants to be
a United Stp.tes senator from tho same state. The nbovo picture hardly makes
Hobson appear a hero, but it Is a true likeness ns he nppears today. Con
gressman Hobson, along with his ambition to be n United States senator, has
a long bill that ho will present to congress showing that the United States
is In grave danger of being swept off the map unless eertnln millions ore spent
on new bnnloshlps.
