V raser Edwards, a special writer on
the staff of the lWashington Post, had
.the following entertaining write-up of
Senator Dial, of this city, in his paper
a few days ago. Of course local read
ers will discover a few inaccuracies
and exaggerations natitral inl a breezy
write-ip of this kind, but, they will be
ailused at the realistic picture which
the writer has drawn of IIe "Cololel".
