old Man became dazed
And Turned in South A Street
Police and Citizens Are Search
ing for Him.
John' D. Wiggins, one of the best
know citizens of Richmond, disap
peared about 5 o'clock last evening
and at a late hour had not been
.found. Mr. Wiggins is about eighty
years old and in a very feeble con
dition. He is verv hard of hearing
and nearly totally blind. About
4:.10 yesterday afternoon he was put
on a car at Fairview and started
for his home. When the ear reached
Fifth and Main streets lie got off.
A colored man who noticed his ac
tions and thinking that something
was wrong asked the. old gentleman
where he wanted t go. Mr. Wig
gins told him where he lived. The
colored man hailed the next street
car and told, the conductor to let
Mr. Wiggins off at Fifteenth and
Main streets, as Mr. Wiggins lives
at 330 South Fifteenth. The con
ductor did as he was asked and let
Mr. Wiggins oft at Fifteenth street.
The -old gentleman walked south in
Fifteenth and west in A street. The
4 last seen of him he was at Twelfth
and South A streets going west in A
street. Last evening Patrolman Sut-
.fftan led a crowd of sr.rL.Lhrunglv
' BeeyToiT'Twoods '." and ; through a
number of the commons in the terri
tory of A street, but nothing could
be found of Mr. Wiggins. The oth
. - er patrolmen throughout the city'
i were also instructed to keep vigilant
j lookout for Mr. Wiggins, but they
5 were unable to find him. It is pecu
I liar that Mr. Wiggins should get
lost, as there is not a man in the
; city who is better acquainted with
' the streets than is Mr. Wiggins.
For years he was connected with
the City Health Hoard and his work
took him over the entire city. He
has been in bad health for some
few months and at times he appear
ed to be in a dazed condition. An
example of this was shown yester
, Vlay, when he was at the corner of
Fifth and Main streets, as he point-
.A I f A P 41. 1-k,, 1 1 1 1M fve All 4 li 4-
i .jeorner and asked what building that
was. He seemed to have no idea of
-where he was.

early days and are in marked con
trast to the cut of the clothing worn
nowadays.
The women of that early period
' wore their hair in long curls, wide
. skirts of the Martha Washington
pattern was the style. Shaker
ishaned bonnets prevailed.
J The men wore silk tiles of several

"
Theodore Roosevelt has been
elected president after a cam-
paign in which the "paramount
issue11" was declared to be"him-
self," What are the, qualities
by wh jch he has won the love
and confidence of the American
people tThey are: '(.
His unflinching honesty iu
act and speech and thought,
and a frankness that is abso-
lutely; daring. He never says
one thing and means another.
He has no subtlety, no diplo-
matic finesse. He is not lacking
in tact, but it is the tact that
relies upon the good sense and
love of fair play in those with
whom he deals.
His utter fearlessness,- not
merely of personal danger, but
of the consequences to himself
from doing what he believes to
be right, practicable, and for
the public welfare. When
warned that his intervention in
the coal strike would blast his
future, he set his teeth and an-
swered : "Yes, I suppose it ends
me, but it is right and I will do
it." But although fearless, he
is by no means rash. On all
important matters he consults
those whom he trusts, and no
man is more willing to change
his views if good reasons are
submitted. Counsel is always
welcome, control never.
His accurate sense of justice.
Every man is to have4' 'a square
deal." When he was Civil
Service Commissioner lie filled
the quotas from the South by
announcing that Democrats
should have just as good a
chance for appointment , as Re
illiliciius'. he accords just as
fair treatment to the Jew, Cath-
olic, and the gnostic, as to the
man who shares his' own reli-
gious beliefs. He is president
of the whole peo;Ie. and not of
those belonging to a single
party, race or creed.
His prodigious 'capacity for
hard work. Tn this he is like
Napoleon. But much of his
ability to "get things done"
depends upon others. His
knowledge of men is extensive
and accurate; he chooses" his
agents with skill; trusting to
them all details, and demanding
nothing but results, he wastes
no energy on trilles. The mo-
ment he arrives at a decision.
it is carried into instant exeeu-
tion.
' His practical nature. He has
high ideals, but he never seeks
the unattainable. He will not
struggle vainly for "the per-
feet and abstract right" when
he will lose thereby the good
that can be accomplished by
seeking something else. He has
got. to make this great goveru-
mentwork, and he will make it
work as nearly right as it will
work at all, but he will not give"
up the job because all his ulti-
mate desires can not be ac-
eomplished ,V
.-'-'His implicit reliance upon the
better instincts of th people.
. While 1 often distrusts his
'liticaF conditions, no imtn since
litieal conditions.n o man since
Lincoln ever had a sti ngor be-
lief in the honesty and good
sense ot the masses, Although
he comes from an aristocratic
farailv-, he is intensely "demo-
orotic ...in '-his sympathies. "
I might mention "other char-
aeteristics of the "president ; his
masterful personality;".' the
strength of his affections and
his antipathies; his brilliant
x)wers of .-conversation; his lit-
erary attainments; his ideal
home life; bis bubbling merri-
ment, and his spirit of praeti-
eal optimism, by which he epi-
tomizes the joy of living and
realizes to the full the old Ro-
man ideal of the mens sana in
corpore sano. All these things
fit him better than any man
living to be president of a
young.vigorous, great and tlour-
ishing republic.

(Special to the Palladium.)
Cincinnati, 0., November 21. A
fire which started . here yesterday
afternoon in the block bounded by
Fourth and Walnut, Main and Third
streets, threatened to be one of the
most disastrous fires in the history of
Cincinnati. Some of the largest
buildings in the city are in this
square and for a while it seemed im
possible to save any of these buildings.'-
At this hour, 1:30 a. m., the
fire is still burning, but is practically
under control. The fire started in a
tailoring shop underneath the build
ing occupied by the Kineori Coal
company. It quickly spread to the
building occupied by. the Quets.diler
Piano company. 'c"--Thisv'ibirdihigi'iHrasV
soon totally destroyed. By this time
all of the departments in the city
had been culled out ami assistance
had been asked for from the sur
rounding sities. On account of the
high wind prevailing it was thought
impossible to save the square and
a large number of the firemen were
set to work to save, the surrounding
buildings. The wind died down
about midnight and the firemen soon
gained control of the blaze, but not
until it had destroyed the building
j occupied by the Oxford Stationery
company and several others, making
ja total of eight buildings and an ag-
Tegato loss of -f. 100,000. For a

Post on,; Xov. 21. -The armored
cruiser Pennsylvania, which was
launched several months ago by.Miss
Quay, "daughter of the Jate Senator
Quay of " Pennsylvania, makes : her
oilicial trial over the,. Cape Ann
course today. The cruiser arrived
here Saturday and was boarded by
the Naval Hoard and officials of the
Cramps' Company this morning. No
effort will' be made to break records,
but the builders are confident that
the shii will exceed the contract
speed of twenty-two knots. Th.? con
tract for the building of the Pennsyl
vania was signed with that of the
Colorado, her sister ship, in 1001.
She is a protected cruiser of the
first class and with the Colorado will
represent a new and jxnverful type.

Paul building, the new First Nation

some Masonic Temple could not be
saved. The streets were crowded
with people soon after the fire start
ed and it was impossible to get
wihtin a square of the blaze. The
entire police reserve force of the
city was called out in an attempt
to hold back 'the crowd of sight
seers. Xo accidents have been re
ported at this hour and it is not
thought that a person has been in
jured. The fire in a great many
ways resembled the Pike theater fire
of a few. years ago. The building
occupied by the Lloyd, Andrews Co.,
suffered $22,000 4 loss. At 1 a. m.
tKe"chief -of the fire department said"
that he -was sure that the fire was
under control and woidd spread no
further.

AN APPRECIATION OF
CHARLES W. FAIRBANKS
By Booth Tarkington in Every-
'bodv's Magazine for December.
Charles Warren Fairbanks ,
comes from a stock which has
for forty years produced the
strongest vertebrae in the back-
bone of (he country; the gov-
erning men of the Cent nil-
States pioneers' grandsons-
and farmers' sons. Most of
them have been tall men, all
have been hardv. Thev are the
men in whom common seuse has
amounted to genius, and in
those states the tide of emigra-
tion from the South met that
from New England and min-
gled with it in the early years
of the nineteenth century. It
is a fusion which has caused the
Central States to produce
more characteristically than
any other section gives evi-
dence of it, what may be broad-
ly called "the American Spir-
it." It is possible, too, that
this fusion of New Englanders
and Southerners was the cause
of the vehement political activ-
ity of their descendants.
Nowhere was that activity
itself more vividly than in In-
diana, both in the lesser and
the greater politics. Of the
eight presidential campaigns
which have been fought since
fieneral Grant's presidency,
six have seen a citizen of Indi-
anapolis the nominee for pres-
ident or vice president on one
of the two great tickets. Dur-
ing the last campaign Senator
Fairbanks was the '.logical can-
didate" of his party nationally
for the vice presidency, just as
he had been the "logical candi-
date" of. his party in Indiana
for the senatorship in 1902; in
the. Jatter-."inst auqiUilxaa v.. ha
said, that he was more the can-
didate of the whole state than
of merely his party, for the
opposition to him was nominal.
Senator Fairbanks is, of
course, politic, and he is prac-
tical. To be both as practical
and as politic as he is means
more than a practical oliti-
cian; it means a statesman.
Moreover, he is one of the
most energetic men alive; his
great frame contains an infinite
capacity for work and for bear-
ing fatigue, but his is an energy
not to be confounded with im-
petuosity, for he must be es-
teemed one of the shrewdest
men in the country, ami his
shrewdness is of that kind
which means a cool head,
though not temperamental cold-
ness. He is a man whom it is
almost impossible to confuse,
mentally. He sees his point al-
ways clearly; he can not be de-
viated from it and is persistent
beyond computation. In a word
he is a man who "makes things
happen," a man who achieves
by service to the country, his
state and his party.
He is of the modern order
of public men, not of that older
generation of thunderers, pier
tuix'sijue figures that they were
living on glitter and orator-
worship, but so many of them
useful only to themselves. Sen-
a tor Fairbanks has reached his
present . position not so much
because of his unusual capae-
; ity for organization as because
of his public utility. He is a
lawyer, a business man, able to
handle, carefully and needfully,.
small and large affairs, to carry
them through surely what is
called a "safe" man. I
In political management he
has not been one of those who
bludgeon men in opposition un-
til they are ready to take re-
wards for ''coming the right
way." He does not antagonize.
He moves quietly and surely,
understanding and dealing with
all compromises which can be
made with honor. He is a
peacemaker, calm, steady nev-
er swept away; and, competent
tn meet intensely strained situ-
ations, he knows how to bring
violently opposed factions into
harmony with a tact which
amount? to power.

Killed by Mr. Frank McClure Abo-t
11 O'clock Yesterday Morn-

Considerable excitement was
caused in the down town streets
yesterday morning by the appear
ance of a mad dog running' loose.
The dog first made its apjearance iu
West Main street, near Fifth , and
was running east. Every time it
would meet with another dog a fight
immediately ensued and the mad dog
usually came out victorious and in
this manner a number of dogs were
bitten and a number of them had. to
be killed. The mad dog ran south
in Seventh street, where it bit a
number of dogs and he was .finally
caught in an alley iu A street, jnst
off of Seventh street. A man by the
name of McClure who had been fol-.
lowing the dog in its mad flight,
caught up with it here and succeeded
in shooting.. it-with a revolver. It' is
not known just how many dogs
were bitten nor who they belonged to
and the police advise all owners of
dogs to be careful with them for a
few days and keep a good watch on
them. It is 'not believed that tho'd.'g
attacked :any Pons- .'. -
