Story of IJesth's Resignation.
Hanna said that the personnel of
an adrUory committee was under con
sideration, but that it would not be an
nounced for ten days or two weeks. It
was also said that all of the members
of the old national committee of 1S1M
requested President McKlnley to con
sent to the resignation of Ileatu as
first assistant postmaster general. In
order that be might become the secre
tary of the national committee. The
president, it was added, strongly de
murred to this proposition until Thurs
day, when he finally gave his con
Headquarters at New Tork and Chicago.
The executive committee chose CoL
Myron T. Herrick. of this city, to fill
the vacancy of the national committee
caused by the resignation of George
B. Cox, of Cincinnati. Tbe commit
tee late in the afternoon renewed the
lease for the rooms occupied as head
quarters in the Metropolitan Life In
surance building, Madison square, New
York. Fayne and Stewart were In
structed to look over the ground in
Chicago with a view to securing a lo
cation for the national committee in
that city. It Is expected that the Chi
eago headquarters will be opened dur
lag the latter part of the present
month. Tbe committee after consld
erable discussion decided to maintain
no special bureaus during the coming
Heath Talks or Ills Transfer.
In an Interview First Assistant Post
master General Heath said to the As
sociated Press correspondent: "The
subject which culminated today in my
selection as secretary of the Repub
lican national committee was first
broached to me by Chairman Hanna
and members of the committee some
weeks ago. and was renewed with
much earnestness ami insistency at
the Philadelphia convention." He
added tluit he was at first averse to
taking the iwsition, but finally con
sented. "At Canton yesterday I talked
with the president and Postmaster
General Smith and will renew the sub
ject with the postmaster general on
Monday. My services with the eoni
xtittee will, I presume, be needed as
soon as tbe Chicago headquarters are
opened the latter part of this mouth."

derstanding that the committee should

The Belgian bare craze has strnck
Rock Island. Beginning in Los An
geles, the fever has spread eastward,
taking in Denver and Kansas City, and
now Bock Island Is in line. The
breeding of Belgian hares Is an art, j
at once interesting, fascinating, and
profitable, and it is the history of the
fad that once it obtains a footholc it
will spread to the extent that those
who at first were scoffers become the
The fad has taken hold here in the
formation of the Bock Island Bab

the Queen of Banbarv. imported

Mr. Eddy has hia stock penned on
his premises at 1319 Second avenue,
but the hare family is increasing with
such rapidity that be will soon find it
necessary to have larger qaarters.
The demand for stock at tbls time
must draw principally-on tbe west
for supply, as the east has few breed
ers wbo nave been in tbe business
even for a year, and their local mar
ket is assuming sufficient proportions
to keep down any surplus tney may
have; and yet the fever is not what it
will be later on, if the experience of
western c:ties counts tit anything.
