As a thorough representative of tbe
German-American element he would
undoubtedly poll an army of voters
not counted in tbe ordinary party
alignment. He is withal a loyal dem
ocrat and a busiaess man of sterling
integrity and splendid qualifications,
as has been demonstrated by his rec
ord in connection with vast business
enterprises and as treasurer of tbe
city of Chicago. In all these respects
Mr. Ortseifen's reputation in the bus
iness world is without a stain, while
even the friends and backers of rival
aspirants concede that he would make
an ideal candidate."
In the meantime, however, the
friends of the other-candidates have
not been idle, adds the same gossip.
Mr. Alschuler has opened personal

these there is, of course, more or less !
gossip concerning dark aoreef. The
name of Hon. Elmore W7 IlOrst, of

mention, while the Rockford Star is

It is generally conceded that Mr,

spoken of as a compromise nominee for
governor. For attorney general the

VIRGINIA'S NOTED DUELIST.
Career of Capt. MeCarty, Who Once
Figured la wt Celebrated Romance.
The last page of a romantic story
was finished the other day in tbe death
at Richmond of Captain Page McCar-
ty, duelist, editor, misanthrope. Twen
ty-seven years ago lie killed John Mor-
decai, once his fast friend, and was
himself almost fatally wounded. The
duel was fought because of a young
and beautiful woman. Miss Mary Trip
let!, known as the "Belle of the South,"
says the New York Sun. Mordecai
and McCarty were in love with her,
and none knew which was the favored
one. At a ball one night the capricious
beauty slighted McCarty In so marked
a manner that he left the house in dis
gust. A few days after there appeared
In a local paper these lines:
When Mary's form divine I press
In Strauss sweetest waltz.
Those lips I, too, would fain caress.
Although those lips be false.
When Mordecai saw the article, he
became enraged, declaring McCarty
had written it, although it was unsign
ed, and that he must answer to him
for the Insult to Miss Triplett. 'The
two met later in a cafe. There were
some words, and McCarty was knock
ed down. A challenge followed and
was promptly accepted. They met just
as the sun was rising near Oakwood
cemetery, where sleep 10,000 Confeder

At the word both men fired together.
McCarty's right thigh was shattered,
while the ball from his weapon pierced
Mordecai's abdomen. The latter died
the following day. McCarty was ar
rested, tried and sentenced to a fine of
$500 and to serve 11! months in jail.
He paid the fine, but was pardoned by
Governor Kemper. Before he recover
ed, Miss Triplett, the innocent cause of
the tragedy, married Captain Philip
IlaxalL She died suddenly a few years
The last days of McCarty were bit
ter. He was desperate, caring not for
man and avoiding woman. He became
celebrated during the readjuster regime
as editor of The Campaign. He made
many attacks upon General William
Mahone, and his controversy with Cap
tain John S. Wise of New York was
notable. He used every means to goad
the latter Into a duel without success.
Captain Wise's letter declining to fight
became celebrated. In it he said that
McCarty went around with the blood
of Mordecai upon his hand and thirst
ing for more."
Blsr Prlee For Glory.
It is estimated in London that tbe
siege and relief of Mafcking added not
less than $5,000,000 to the cost of the
war. says the Indianapolis Journal.

and its dellrerance adds nothinr to
British resources, all they get out of it
is the glory. That Is worth a pile of
