TIE political campaign of 1004
Las now begun in earnest, and
at the national headquarters
of the Republican and Demo
cratic parties In New York city all la
bustle and activity. From now until
election day the political pot will be
kept boiling. The national Democratic
headquarters is In the new Century
building, at 1 West Thirty-fourth street.
New York, while the Republican na
tional committee has established offices
in the fplendid marble building at the
corner of Madison uvenue ami Twenty
third street, where an extensive suit
of rooms is devoted to the work of the
committee. It is here that George It.
Cortelyou, chairman of the Republican
national committee, may usually be
found. A western headquarters has
also been opened in Chicago with El
mer Dover, secretary of the committee,
The men who run the Republican
campaign are the members of the na
end most of this
work devolves on
the chairman, sec
nnd an executive
committee of eight
members. In the
campaigns of lH'.HJ
and J1j0 the chair
man of the Repub
lican national com
mittee was the late
Senator Hunmi. In
choosing as chairman for this campaign
a comparatively young man like George
Bruce Cortelyou the Republicans made
a new departure. Mr. Cortelyou was
selected because of his intimate asso
ciation with the president and because
bis close acquaintance with the issues
upon which the battle must be fought,
together with the capacity for organi
zation he has developed, made him
Keeui well adapted for the place. The
president wanted him in this posi
tion, and the members of the commit
tee deferred to his wish. Mr. Cortelyou
is just forty-two years of ape, and ten
years 040 he was stenographer to Pres
ident Cleveland. Faithful service as
private secretary to the president, first
.with. McKiuley and later with Roose
velt, won him pro
motion to the im
portant post of sec
retary" f the new
department of com
merce and labor.
Cornelius N. Bliss,
treasurer of the
committee, is one
of the heavy
weights of Repub
cobnelicb s. bmss though he is a mer
chant, and when he has held otflclal
position it has been rather a case of
the oine heeking the man than the
man the olllce. He was the treasurer
of the Republican committee in the
campaigns of ls.r, IS'M and 11XK). He
was bom in Fall River, Mass., in 1$?3,
educated in the public schools and at
an academy in that town and at the
New Orleans high school. His busi
ness success was attained as a member
of a New York firm of dry goods com
mission merchants. Mr. Rliss was a
member of the pan-American confer
ence of IS'JO, has been president of the
Protective Tariff league and chairman
of the New York state Republican com
mittee. President McKInley appointed
film secretary of the interior. He lias
several times been talked of as the can
didate of his party
for governor of
New York, but ha
each time declined
to permit his name
to be presented to
The late Senator

Is coutluucd, it
might be said, iu
the person of the
secretary. Elmer Dover, who
secretary of the Ohio senator. Mr. Han
ua reposed great confidence in him. Mr.
Dover is u newspaper man and began
bis career as an editor of Ohio papers
at the eariy age of sixteen. He will

lican headquarters In Chicago, for he

ODD FACTS ABOUT COLOR.

queer facts about colors.
Heat a bar of iron aud the particles
of the metal are set In motion, shak

I'resently the surrounding ether is set
in motion in large, slow waves through
the air, like the waves of the sea, until
they break upon our skin und give us
the sensation of heat. As the iron gets
hotter other waves are set in motion in
immense numbers, traveling at more
than lightning speed, and these break
upon the eye, giving us the sensation
of red light.
The redhot iron, getting still more
heated, throws out other sets of waves,
still smaller and more rapid orange,
yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, all
the colors of the rainbow. The eye
cannot tell one from another; the whole
bundle of rays luixed up gives us an
impression of white. That Is the glow
from white hot iron, i:nd such Is the
light from the still greater brightness
of the sun. Sunlight is a bundle of
rays of light ml. orange, yellow,
