WEIGHED-FOUND WANTING

srtlcle on Goveroor Ilughe-t In the Februiiry Isfuei
Thls should iUustrnte my meuning? When Mr. llugiies ?.._-, runnlng for tlio
Governorsliip, I e.hanceel to be talking polltles _-ne evening with Mr. Roosevelt.
"But you don't moan to tell mo," e-tclalmed that vlgorous chlef maglstrate.
archlng eyebrow of surprlse at my expressed coolness tow"ard Mr. Ilughes, "that
you regard Mr. Hughes as other than honest, able and Intelllgent."
"Let me tell you*a story," I sald; "lt should shed a vay. There wat> n care
ful farmer who owned a coop of priceless cochlns. 'Some one.* says the farmer.
'wlll steal these chlckons if I don't watch out. I'll buy a tlog?an honest, able
and Intelllgent dog.' Ho bought tho dog, Installed hlm, and sought hls downy
couch, confldent, satisfied and .ecure. That nlght every cochln was stoion.
The farmer waa amazed. There sat the dog?honest. ablo an intelllgent. And.
yet that great coop-emptiness never seemed to bother him a bit. The farmer
'couldn't fathom ii.', Hls wondor abatod, however, when, upon back-tracklng
the mlracle, he found that thc party who stolo the chlckens wa. tho party
'who sold hlm the dog."
*?* *.* ??
Bofore Mr. Hughes began to run for offlce ho had burst upon tho public
notice twice. The flrst time he conducted an Investlgatlon agalnst tho gas
thleves, that resulted In no good to tho public, no harm to the thleves. Mr.
Hughea's socond appearnnce was in connection wlth that lnsuranco invcstlga
'tion, -stlll warm in -tho memories "of men.
-It'foll about in thls wlse: Mr. Alexander and young Mr. Hyelo got to flght
Ing for posscsslon of tho Equltable. Thoy succeeded, so to speak, In klcklng
each other out of bed, anel Jlr, Ryan got the bed. Also, thoy klcked the covers
?off the bed, and tho Inncr vllencss of thu Equltable was dlsclosed to an onlook
lng world.
Thls latter situatlon dldn't sult tho card of Mr. Ryan, then In possession
of the bed. The Ryan ownershlp of tho Kqultablo was not to transplre for some
jnonths; but tho truth Is, he got possession before Messrs. Hyde and Alexander
had been fighting a week. Alr. Ityan couldn't cover up tho Equltable rotten
ness; affairs had gone too fur. Wheroupon he resolved to do tho next best
tbing, and uncover the rottenness of the Equltable's rlvals.
The New Yovk Lifo and tho Mutual were as vlle ln thelr injtornal managa
ment as was the-Equltable. Mr* Ryan pushed a legislatilro button or two, nnd
*n "Investlgatlon" was ordered. N'o; Mr. Ryan eloesn't own tho Albany legls?
lature; but ho occaslonally ? leases it for tho season, and this was one of the
?oasons.
