It Is directed agatott no lem a person than Sntor John Sherman. It w emu that Mr. Moiwghan U him scir n gootl deal or a politician out In ISuckejwIom. In 1980 he was chair man of the Kepubllcan State Committee. He hns nlnys wleldwl n largo Inllnsnce In lh twllllcnl nftntrs of his State. ThU influence lias constantly been used to thwart Senator Sherman's Fresulcntliil nmbitlnn nml to boost Ulalno. In fact he was a Illaloelac of tho hottest kind. Ho mnnaced to con trol the delegation of his riMrlct, which, by tho way, was McKlntoy's old district, nitntast Sherman at tho National Convention. As n ronw- qnenco Sherman folt very Reiki toward Sir. Monnghnn, and that gentleman knew It. After whooping things up for the grandson of his grandfather, Mr. MonaKhnn camo hero after tho latu In auguration to Hi'k his reward at thu lmDilsnf President Harrison He had the backing of Major MclClnlcy and hII the other of Ohio a great Ilepubllrins except Senator Sherman.

He would, hnwtxer. aik the Senator to keep Ida able hand off. The Senator declined to accede to this modest ropiest In a frigid way that would have frown Mooaghan s middle aged blood In hi vein, had It been of the congealing kind. Hut It watn't. He went right on In hta search for office, lie wanted to be Sixth Au ditor of the Treasury, ami Secretary Wisdom had practically promised It to lilm. Sherman interfered and Monae han was sidetracked aud Mr. T. U. Coulter of Ohio was run into the Audi torial round-house- Mr. Monaghan went off to see Set ro tary ltlaltie. In hi sympathetic ear he told hi tale of woo. Likewise tin burdened hi store of wrath. Mr. Illalne was sorry for his friend. Mr. MonaKhan, very sorry. Ob hit own account he was really well pleased. He cast about for a consulship to be stow upon the faithful follower who had fallen a ktlm to tbe frigid wrath of the Ohio Senator. He found vacant the consulship at Chatham, Ontario, and ollered it to lilm. Mr. Monaghan declined. He didn't go la for diplomacy if he had he wouldn't have fought for Blaine and against Sherman In Ohio. Secretary itlalae looked again, and found a better consul ship, that of Hamilton, Ontario. Mr. Monaghan accepted it, received hUcom mlastoB ami Instructions and hied him self blithely away to hi new post of duty. Dear la wind that this was Secretary Itlalae' personal appointment. Mr. Monaakan didn't have a paper on file in the Department of State, They were all filed over at tbe Treasury De partment. In due course tbe nomina tion went to the Senate. There It slum bered. Arctic traveler tell ui of tbe wonderful effect extreme c4d ha In producing eternal sleep. Tbe gelid Senator saw that Mr. Monaghan' nomi nation was enwrapped with a more than Ah lie cold. It ww Antarctic a well. When Congress adjourned en October 1 and an aceuumt ot stock was taken Mr. Monaghan' nomuatkm was found rigid and frigid, In an obscure pigeon hole uaaeted upon. Mr. Monaghan was no longer Consul at Hamilton, Ontario. Everybody was astonished. Secretary Blaine was surprised. Major McKinley was amemwL They thought Mr. Monaghan had been. rninnail loeg ago. Mr. Moaaghan thought either that he had been or surely woukl be confirmed There were no charge against him. Ko fight was madelba him.
