AND WHAT THEY SCHEDULE.

tlclan No Money Made In Politics.
Tbe wealth of politicians, or of those who
hold public office, is & subject of frequent
speculation. Many men who figure prom
inently before tbe public are put down as
wealthy, chiefly because thoy dress well and
spend monoy liberally, when it is well known
' to their Intimate friends that they would not
be worth a penny in the wide world if their
debts were pnfd. On the other band, there
are scores of politician, in and out of office,
who are comparatively well off in the world's
roods and yet are not popularly supposed to
be worth much money.
Most of the men of wealth in local politics
since the overthrow f Tweed's ring, in 1871,
acquired their means in private business en
tirely asldo from politics. A few contract
ors probably furnish the only exceptions to
PF.TTR COOPER'S HEIRS.
Abratn 8. ILiwitt aud Edward Cooper,
present and pust mayors, are beyond ques
tion tbe two wealthiest men who have held
?iblio office in this city since Tweed's day.
beir great wealth was inherited from the
late Peter Cooper, their individual fortunes
having been many times added to by enor
mous iron and other business interests.
One of the old school of local politicians
who were active in politics before the days of
the civil war and since its close, ex-Senator
John Fox is probably one of the wealthiest
Bil fortune is estimated at upward of $700,
000, the bulk .of which was acquired in the
iron business and fortunate investments which
be mado in real estate.
Ex-Sheriff Bernard Reilly came here in bis
youth from Ireland, settled in the Seven
teenth ward, then known as Maokerelville,
and bas ever since lived there. He learned
the. trade of a carpenter, and nearly forty
years ago opened his first liquor store on
First avenue. Ho has always been a power
in tbe Tammany party of thut ward. Ho in
vested largely in real estnto, chiefly in tene
ment property, and is reputed to be worth
Ex-Congressman Nicholas Muller has made
and spent a couple of fair sized fortunes.
They were mado in his business of selling rail
road tickets in the Castle Garden agency for
ending Immigrants west, but the money was
pent in politics and chanty with a luvish
hand. Mr. Muller says be has had his fill of
political experience, and now be has settled
down on Staten Islaud on a beautiful estate
to enjoy the comforts brought by a third
fortune, earned as tbe general eastern pa&seu
frer agent of tbe Delaware, Lackawanna and
TV astern railroad.
Ex-Alderman Jordan L. Mott is counted as
worth upward of $1,500,000, which he ac
quired in his extensivo iron business. He has
for many years taken an active part In poli
tics, but at considerable financial cost. He
lives in a mansion on upper Fifth avenue,
which the late Ring Controller Richard B.
Connolly built for himself at a cost of nearly
$500,000. Police Commissioner Charles F.
McLean married Mr. Mott's daughter, the
widow of tbe late Park Commissioner Will
iam OllifTo, from whoso cstato slie inherited,
It is understood, about Sl.OOO.CCO.
Ex-Aldcrman J bu . Jacobus, who has
been thrice defeated for countv oClces, is
worth about $100,000, all mado "in busiuess.
He carries on an extensivo trucking business.
Tbe deposed Repub;i"an leader of the
Eighth district, Jolin J. OT.rien, is by many
thought to be quite well off in a pecuniary
sense, but it is not a well founded impression.
Mr. O'Brien has bis salary of $3,000 a year as
chief of the bureau of elections and is "said to
be well loaded up with cable railroad stock,
which has no known market value at present.
Mr. O'Brien has undoubtedly made a good
deal of money by reason of bis political con
nections, but little of it has remained by
him, his friends claiming that all of It has
been spent "for the p;ood of the party."
John Reilly, the Tammany leader of the
Fourteenth district, bus mado a considerable
fortune, 'hich is placed in Judicious real es
tate Investments in improved property. Mr.
Reilly is believed to be worth close upon
M ATOR CRAKT8 ROLL.
Mayor-elect Grant inherited a fortune of
about $200,000, which bis own energy has
largely increase'!. It Is said that he will start
off as mayor of the metropolis with at least
aow.UUU to bis credit.
Judge P. Henry Duro, of the superior
court, is undoubtedly tho wealthiest young
Sdltician In tbe city, but ho mado no part'of
fortune in politics beyond bis salary as
member of assembly, congressman and
juare. ma father, tho late Anthony Dnero.
who was one of the old board of ten govern
ors, as tbe almshouse commissioners were
termed before the board of charities and cor
reetlon was formed, left him. as bis share of
an estate, upward of fl.CUO.COO. This fortune
has since been more than doubled by lucky
real estate investments.
Richard Croker, Tammany's leader, is only
moderately well off, probably being possessed
of less than $75,000. Maurice J. Power, who
directs tbe destinies of tbe County Democ
racy, has even less, although lio runs a fine
art foundry in addition to discharging tbe
duties of police justice ut $3,000 a year. Firm
Commissioner Henry D. Purroy is said to be
worth about floU.OGO, which ho made by
judicious investment iu real estate.
Ex-Sheriff James O'Brien has made and
pent half a dozen fortunes, only ono of
which was obuinod in public office, and that
was while bo was sheriff. He keeps up now
pretty expensive living, both here in win
ter and in baratoga during tho summer, but
none except himself knows what be is worth.
County Clerk Flack is set down as worth
$200,000, most of which was got by applica
tion to his business of book binding. Aque
duct Contractor John O'Brien is probably
worth $S0O,00O. Public Printer Martin B.
Brown Is reputed to have al.out t500,000, and
ex Judge John McQuade nearly as much.
Tbe latter is a contractor.
The wealthiest Republican politician in tbe
city is undoubtedly Vice President-elect Levi
P. Morton, but not even his enemies allege
that he ever made a dollar by tho influeace
of his political power. His fortune is set
down at $10,000,000. Ex -Senator Tbemas C.
Piatt is said to be worth a round $1,500,000.

The Hebrews, Egyptians, Chinese and the
mieoellaneous population of India all used
fans as far back as history reaches. Terence,
writer of Latin comedies who lived in tbe
Second century B. C, makes one of bis char
acters speak of tbe fan as used by ladies in
ancient Rome: "Take this fan and give her
thus a little air." From this Roman origin
tho fashion of carrying fans was handed
down to the ladies of Italy, Spain and France
and thence introduced into Britain. Queen
Elizabeth when in full dress carried a fan.
Shakespeare speaks of fans as connected with
ft lady's bravery and finery:

of bravery." Dry Ooods Chronicle.

Having gumied on one of the choicest shores
of the Gunpowder river for more than twenty
years, and consequently outlived many early
prejudice, I can soy that by far tbe most
satisfactory dog for tho true sportsman is the
medium sized, "otter coated," dead grass
color, the shodo of your shooting suit. This
settles tho question of color advantage. Tbey
do not carry dead water to shake over you
like any long haired animal, and consequently
suffer leas from cold themselves, having a fine

swimmers, with scent equal to any dog of the
best breed.- Tho large dog tires quicker, is
bard to keep out of siht, and of courso is in
v too wny about the blind. The endurance of
toes dogs as a breed and their Intelligence
for their business is almost beyond belief.
But they are unsatisfactory for any other
purpose ; they know duck duck and nothing
