Mayor Pingree is an accident in poli
tics. He went into the game seven
years ago was as green as grass.
He had never taken any active part in
the affairs of the city or state, save
to answer each appeal for money with
a good-sized check. He had spent all
the best years of his life In the shoe
business, and it was one of his pet ex
pressions and a by-word among his
frien<is thet "there is nothing like
leather." He had Joined the Michigan
club, the stalwart Republican organ
ization of Detroit, and because of his
financial standing was made president
This entitled him to a membership in
the Big Four— a series of ex-presidents
■who directed about all the movements
of the party. This combination was
composed of Jamee L. Edson, William
H. Elliott, C. A. Black and Mr. Pingree,
and in 1888 It headed the company
which which went to the national con
vention and struggled for the nomi
nation of Gen. Alger. Mr. Pingree was
arses3Cd the expense of the trip, de
spite the fact that he was in Europe
at the time and did not share in the
fun or the glory.
It was the next year— lßß9— that he
flashed across the skies and started the
career which has made him one of the
most discussed men in the country.
Detroit had always been Democratic
and the Republicans were looking for
a new man for the slaughter. There
had been, called a little meeting of des
peration by the leaders, and on the- way j
to thft station Mr. Pingree stopped lor }
a moment to see how matters were
getting on. He was going to Boston to
buy leather, but as he came in some
one suggested him for the mayoralty.
The name at that time met with the
earnest approval of those who were
present— of such men as Col. H. M.
Duffleld, the "Big Four," Elder Blades,
Col. Farnsworth, Harry Tillman and
many others of the same Influence — and
it was unanimously voted to present
his name to the convention. The sug
gestion was such a surprise to him
that Mr. Pingree eat like a stone dur
ing the talk and at the decision seized
his hat and bolted for the door. He
found it locked, and was thus compell
ed to sit still and was not allowed to
continue his leather mission until he
had made a promise to accept the
nomination In case his partners also
WENT INTO THE FIGHT TO "WIN.
Mr. Pingree came home from the
East and his determination was at
fever heat. It dawned upon him that
he had been selected because no one
else wajited to make the run and it
made him angry. He announced, tfejit
he would be elected and he put aside
leather for politics. He went into the
campaign with the vehemence of a
mad bull and swore both literally and
metaphorically that he would wipe out
the Democratic majority and earn the
executive chair. People laughed at his
enthusiasm, but the more they laughed
the angrier Pingree became. He es
tablished two bureaus. One was in
the hands of Edson, Blacli, Farnsworth
and Elliott, and the business of thi3
was to write documents about the mis
rule of Detroit and the remedies of
THE SAINT PAUI, GLOBE: SUNDAY, AUGUST 9, 1896.
the evils of the old-fogy administra
tions, Col. Duffleld, Harry Tillman and
Jo« Weiss were directing the other
bureau, which devoted all its energies
to the actual work of vote getting. It
was a campaign which attracted at
tention all over the country, and it
had for its platform this acrostic:
Increased valuation of vacant land for tax
No monopoly on ferries. Low street car
Good pavements and sewers.
Railroad property to be taxed — no exemp
Equal rights — arbitration.
Equalization of assessments. .
Street railway franchises to highest bidders.
This sort of thing was unique enough
H. B. PINGREB.
In the conservative old town to please
everybody, and there was an absolute
stampede of men of influence to help
elect Pingree. There was not a man of
importance in the city who was not
with him. He was backed by all the
men with whom he had associated in
large financial interests, and the work
ing people came to him In crowds.
despite the fact that he was a million
aire. They were taken with the plat
form and the election took him into
office with a rush. The adverse ma
jority was wiped out and he was elected
by more than 8,000 plurality. There
was a general rejoicing and Detroit
started upon a new era.
The rejoicing soon ceased in many
quarters. Pingree set out to carry out
his platform and began to go after the
corporations. He opened war on the
street car lines and the gas companies.
Many of his supporters were stock
holders in the monopolies, and they
tried to call him off. He refused. He
pegged away at reforms of all kinds,
made handsome streets from mud
holes, completed the 3-cent fare ar
rangement, cut gas bills in two, taxed
big concerns twice as much, as they
had peid before and still kept the
figures within bounds. He rapped
right and left, and one year In office
drove all the men who put him there
into a hostile camp. He proved a re
former with a big H, and he reformed
too much. There were formed all man
ner of combinations against him, but
the more combinations the more he
POTATO PATCH IDEA IS BORN.
This manner of warfare brought him
a better support than he had at the
beginning. Th« people came to his
standard, and then he thought of the
municipal potato patch. This was a
success. He raised more than 40,000
bushels the first J'eaft and his ma
jority went up the Sexi spring propor

earnest in his effort* to give the people
what they wanted. He was re-elected
four times in succession, and last time
swelled the majority to nearly 10,000.
He is the hero of the laboring men, and
there Is no man in the city who would
dare run against him with any ex
pectancy of winning.

so many of them that the air of his

man and apparently conscientious in
all that h« does. He is charged with
insincerity, but the charge usually
comes from those upon whose toes he

a vast amount of money, the loss of
all his society friends and the enmity
of all the business wqrld of the city.
He is not an educated man, reads

MOURNING FOR DEPARTED DOGS.
Pets Whose Death Bring* Sorrow
to Many Households.
Down in Westfleld, N. J., is an esti
mable citizen who has Just taken to
himself a second wife and who now
finds himself in rather embarrassing
circumstances every Sunday morning.
His first wife owned a pointer that was
exceedingly fond of her and on the day
of her funeral the dog seemed to real
ize, when the coffin was taken from
the house, that It contained his beloved
mistress. As the bell tolled the dog
howled pitifully, and from that time
whenever it has ha^r^ £*?
tg&ttll urt&ture "has cried. The warm
attachment of dogs for masters and
mistresses and for one another has
been marked many times, but a cu
rious instance that was noticed in
Westfleld, Mass., some time ago has
heretofore remained out of print.
A wealthy gentleman of tjiat town,
who owns a plantation in Virginia,
where he raises blooded pointers,
brought two of these animals, Rex and
Lena, to his northern home. The pair
had been attended in person by an
aged negro and for them a strong at
tachment had been formed which, how
ever, was evinced in a greater degree
by Rex, though, curiously enough,
without discrimination. That is, his
affections would be lavished on any
colored person who chanced to come
into his presence. AH the time he was
in the north, which covered a period
of several years, he seemed never to
forget the race of the old man who had
been kind to him. One day he disap
peared, presumably having followed
some colored person, and he has never
sine* been seen. Almost from that day
his mate, Lena, began to worry over
his loss. She gradually pmed away
and her death, which occurred a few
weeks later, has always been attribut
ed to her lonliness. Another instance
of great affection, which eventually re
sulted in the animal's death, occurred
in the same family. In this case a Skye
terrier, which had slept near its mis
tress during a long illness, died shortly
after her death, undoubtedly, as many
circumstances proved, through mourn
ing its loss. This very strong affection
which has actually sapped the life of
the animals, has been exhibited, it is
believed by dog fanciers, oftener by
pointers and Skyes than by dogs of
any other breed.
EATS FROGS A\D OYSTERS.
Joshua Lutton lives on the edge of
the marsh on the bay shore almost due
east from Redwood City. His home
is not a pleasant one to look at, nor
even to get near for that matter. It
is only a_sma!l shant^built of all sorts
Q| Q&sjp*. £g& pr Sip £Kh7 as » c Has
managed to pick Up along the shore.
Eut it-is picturesque in the extreme,
and old Joshua is one of the queerest
men in the state, says the San Fran
Joshua says he is 85 years old, but he
doesn't look it, for he is as hale and
hearty a man as can be seen in a day's
journey. He is as straight as a ship's
mast, and his complexion is ruddy with
the glow of health. He wears very lit
tle clothes, but such as they are are
not unusual in any way. What is
peculiar about Joshua, though, is the
food he eats, which consists entirely of
frogs and a few oysters.
The place that Joshua calls his home
is in about as unhealthy a spot as can
be found. The malarial exhalations of
the marsh fill the air for miles around,
and everything about his home ia
soaked with the damp, clammy vapor/
And yet he is happy and healthy, and'
says he would not live anywhere elsd*
if he could. He says anybody can liv«*
where he does if they wlli live on th«
right kind of food. He is perfectly will
ing to talk about his diet, but it lg
impossible -to get him to say a, word'
about anything else. He won't even
tell where he was born.
"The reason people are sick in thls
world," said Joehua, "is because they,
don't eat the right kind of food. Some
eat meat and some try to live on
vegetables. But they ain't either one
right. It ain't right to eat meat, be
cause you hurt the animal when you
kill It. If you try to live on vegetables
you will mighty soon starve to death.,
Now, I have solved the problem by
eating frogs and oysters. They ain't
either one of them got any feeling, and
they are as nourishing as the fattest!
beef that was ever killed. I catch all'
the frogs I want right at my door,
and by taking my boat J can got a
load of oysters in an hour. So you see'
I have all I want to eat and drink, and
a comfortable place to sleep, and I
don't have to worry myself to death*'
Try it yourself a week or two and 1
am sure you will never live as folks
generally do again."
