MAY BE A SENATOR. cat. lac Train bo Want, to Repraieut I'Uh In Upper Hou.e. One of the most Important of the com. In new states Is Utah. Though the Wll of admission has passed both the house and senate the constitution will not be adopted and the territory formally ad mltted as a state until next November, Steps will then be taken to send to the United States senate men who will be truly representative of the new state, one man wno, n la conndently as erted. will be thus honored Is Col. Isaac Trumbo of Salt Lake City. Perhaps the fcreatest claim that CoL Trumbo has upon the people of Utah Is his efforts to have It ad.nltted as a state. When the proposition to admit Utah was first broached the opposition developed was tremendous. The Mor xnon question was Invoked as a great bugaboo. It was cited as an unheard of thing that any state should permit polygamy within Us borders. A few earnest, devoted men got together to work for statehood. Col. Trumbo was a leader In the movement. He spared neither time, money, nor labor In his ef forts. When polygamy was- formally eschewed by the Mormons the chief ar gument to keeping the territory out of the union was killed. President Harrl son's proclamation of amnesty and the later one of President Cleveland took the last prop away from the opposition, and the efTorts of Col. Trumbo and his helpers, which never ceased during the whole of the long and bitter light, were WROTE NELLIE GRAY. BIN R. HANBY'S CRAVE AT WESTER V1LLE, OHIO.

The bug. aboo was laid and Utah will be admit ted as a state of the union, the house passing the bill Dec. 13, 1893, and the senate July 10, 1894. A Col. Trumbo himself said: "The struggle for state hood was a bitter one, but the admis sion of Utah being assured has killed all prejudice against it, and Utah will Justify the faith put in it." Col. Trumbo has always been a firm believer In the future of Utah.' His business Is chiefly that of mining. He owns a big silver mine and employs a large number of men. He Is personally popular with both Gentiles and Mor mons, not less on account of the liber ality of,hls opinion than for his devo tion to the Interests of the territory. In appearance Col. Trumbo is almost 40 years of age. He Is a good talker and debater, but his great theme is the section from which he halls. As he says, he has. lived in Utah all his life and no man knows It better than he does. He can tell you how much rain falls in any given section, the full ex tent of the mining and milling Indus tries, or any other details. In fact, he Is a cyclopedia of Information and Im parts It willingly. BABY SETTLED THE CASE.

An unlooked-for ending to a case of non-support and desertion, almost tear ful In Its simple pathos, occurred the other day at the Central Police Court In Philadelphia. A little boy saved his father from jail. Mrs. Alice Montgomery, 3344 Ludlow street, entered the courtroom with her four children, placed her hand on the bible, and swore that her husband had only given her $10 since April 10. "Be sides," she said bitterly, "my husband drinks, and has lost his work." Then she looked scornfully at her husband, Thomas Montgomery. ... Magistrate Jermon was about to men tion the amount of ball Montgomery would nave to enter ror court when a small voice said: "Oh, papa, I see you. Peek-a-boo!" The magistrate leaned over his desk and saw Montgomery's 4-year-old son dodging between the legs of two police men, vainly trying to reach his father, who stood scowling In the prisoner's dock. "Papa,. I see you," laughed the baby voice. "Peek-a-boo. Why don't you play with me? Even the big policemen were vlsably affected and the magistrate asked: "Montgomery, try and settle this case. If I let you go wilt you swear oft drink for one year and take care of your wife and family?" -xes, sir, - saia tne Dig rather in a hushed sort of tone. He placed his hand on the bible, took the oath and walked off with his reunited family. NMARKED by a more pretentious monument than a plain wooden head board, warping and decaying as the years go by, there Is a grave In the United Brethren cemetery at West ervllle, a northern suburb of Colum bus, O., which cov ers the mortal remains of Ben R. Han by, author of "Nellie Gray," one of the most eloquently pathetic songs of the mother tongue. Peaceful In storm and un, the man forgotten, while his touch ing verse still lives, Ben Hanby sleeps, save by his family and a few personal friends, unwept and unhonored. The story of his tender, passionate little song often has been told, although seldom, perhaps, truthfully. Like many brilliant and famous compositions of. words and music, it was the creation of an hour, and Its sudden and astonish ing success Was altogether unexpected, by the author. The Inspiration came to young Hanby while he was a passenger on a railroad train between Cincinnati and Hamilton. He was listlessly read ing a newspaper when he found an ac count of the manner In which a beauti ful quadroon girl had been torn from the arms of her lover and taken to a southern slave market to be sold oa the auction block. The quadroon' name was given as Nellie Gray. The tory filled Hanby with pity and Indig nation, for he was naturally gentle and kind and abhorred the Iniquities of lave-holdlng. So Impressed was ha that, with pencil and paper, used as best he could upon the jolting and swaying car seat, he jotted down the words of a song In which the Incidents of the story were utilized. This was done simply for the relief of his own mind and his overburdened heart, and. at that time there was not the remotest design of ever bringing the verse to the light of day. By the time Hanby had reached his destination he had practically completed the few verses of the song. It was thrown carelessly with his baggage and soon after his return to his home in Westervllle It was tossed among some other papers In his desk and there for gotten for six months or more. One day he came across the manuscript and. sent It to a well-known firm of muslo publishers in Chicago, with a note, say ing that if they saw anything in the song they might publish It. f The song sprang at once Into pop ularity, and Hanby, like Byron, awoke one morning to find hlm- self famous. But this awakening did not come for many months after the pathetic melody of his song had poured from thousands of tuneful throats throughout the land. His publishers never even acknowledged the receipt of the manuscript. They made a fortune from its sale, but of all the thousands of dollars which poured Into their bank account Hanby never received a cent. When he wrote to them they sent him . six printed copies of the song,. without the formality of thanks for the manu script. ' , . While his song was gaining Its popu larity and daily growing dearer to bun- - dreds of thousands of tender hearts, Hanby was living undisturbed his calm and peaceful rural life. He was yet to learn his .fame. Several months after . the music of his song had become fa- : miliar as household words Hanby vis- 1 lted a young lady In Columbus and re- . quested her to sing to him. Comply- lng, she said she would sing a sweet little song, which, by some strange co Incidence, had been written by a man . of his name. She began, and, greatly to his surprise, Hanby recognized th words and music of his "Nellie Gray." It was the first intimation he had that' the song had been published. Hanby came of a. musical as well as 1, r ,h-- BI. de HeriHlln a Cuban br Birth. M. de Heredia, the new member of the French Academy, was In his youth a singularly handsome man one who, according 10 rancois uoppee, "com bined the nobility of the hidalgo and the grace of the Creole." He Is a Cuban by birth, but sufficiently In love with his adopted land to call her language "the finest that has Issued from human lips since Homer." M. de Heredia owes his literary rank In France to his son nets, which, because of their polish and vigor, hold a high place In contem porary French literature. STf7- or fi ( 1. 4 irM . HANBY'S GRAVE. - highly descended and cultured family. His father was a bishop in the United Brethren church and was the compile! of a hymn-book, which la still In use. Young Hanby composed a number of songs, several of which were published, none, however, receiving the remark able reception which was given tJ "Nellie Gray." A few years after tha war Hanby died as he had lived, In obscurity and poverty, and the fact thar he was the author of the famous song was known to few save his family and Intimate friends.

A newspaper remarks that "Gresham was the last of the log-cabin statesmen" that is, the last of our great men whr have tolled their way upward from th plough and the pine-knot. We hope not It will be a bad day for America when our high places are filled by lace-em bowered cradles and mansions of wealth. The log-cabin, the humble tenement, the canal boat and the shop will continue, we trust, to furnish us with Presidents and secretaries of state for many a decade to come. When the people cease to rule, when our of fice-holders cease to spring from the ranks of the. common people, this will cease to be a republic Home and Country.
