A Native of Ireland, He Came to This Country Forty-seven Years Aco, and was a Resident of Wheeling Forty-flve Years—A Leading Fhotographer, Promi nent in Politics, and an Office holder Who Well Performed His Public Duties. Hon. William Myles died at his residence. No. 1'1'4 Main street, at five o'clock yester- | day morning, after an illness extending I over five or six months. His ailments were of a nature which made medical aid un availing, and for weeks he steadily sank towards the inevitable end. despite all that loving cart- and scientific aid could do. His death removes from among us one of fhe best type of citizens—a man who took an active and intelligent interest in public affairs, whose private life w is a matter for i mulation. and whos public care r was wholly without reproach. He leaves the seen, of his mat me life, nearly half a cen tury of which was passed in this city, re gretted by all who knew him—and he was known to all. they were thus representative of values in the wholesale and retail districts re spectively. • The Market street property is No. 1309, and fronts 22 feet S34 inches, run ning back 127 feet to the allev, whoie Gutman, after a warm competition with Joseph Speidel and Fred l nruh. w ith an occasional bid from others. This made this sale about $830 a front foot. The residence property, fronting t.0 feet on the south side of Fifteenth street, just east of Eoff. was started .it $8,000, followed by bids of $S,500 and $9,000, and then by modest jumps of $100 to $10,500. the last bid being made by James Neill. There being a de cided disposition to let things drag at that figure, the sale was adjourned un til the 30th inst., while the sale of the personal property was postponed until January 18th. The sum bid for the residence property is considered \ei> low by real estate experts. The prop erty was purchased by Mr. Simpson for about $13,000. and he afterwards spent more than $6,000 in substantial improvements, making it one of the best private residences in the city. It is a matter of incidental interest that this particular residence lot was sold in 1820 to the father of Judge George Jeffers for $120._ BRIDGEPORT.

In politics Mr. Myles was an unswerv ing and uncompromising Democrat, who was active In all party work and whose , counsels and aid were often of the great est value. In his own ward he was an ac tive leader fi>r many years, and for twelve years was its representative In Council, j while for four years he was the County ! Commissioner from Centre district, and nt of the Hoard. In 1K9 he was elected City Col >r. succeeding S. L. Brice, and in KM he was elected one of the delegates from Ohio county to the State Legislature. His public du;i. s w . r. performed with fidelity and a sincere desire to serve the people, and his private life was a model one.

Ostensibly to Fut in a Few Words for Governor Hastings, and. May be to Whack Wanamakera Few. A Big Delegation ot Texans Arrive and Present an Urgent Appeal for a Place for John Grant, of the Lone Star State—McKinley Prom ises to Consider Their Statements -« Canton, Ohio, January 16.—This was another busy day for President-elect McKinley. His visitors were numer ous and important, matters relating to the cabinet and the incoming adminis tration were discussed. Pennsylvania’s two senators, Messrs. Quay and Penrose, came to ask consid eration of Governor Hastings for a cab inet portfolio auu to uiscuss other mat ters. Judge Joseph McKenna, of San bran cisco, a cabinet possibility, arrived this morning and had a very earnest con ference with Major McKinley. Throughout the day there was a steady stream of callers. “Only President-elect McKinley knows.” This wa sthe reply Senator Quay made when the Associated Press rep resentative met him at the carriage on his way to the train and asked whether he thought Hon. Charles Emory Smith, former Minister to Russia and editor of the Philadelphia Press, would be invited to accept the treasury portfolio. Senators Quay and Penrose left Can ton for the East at 2:05 this after noon. Senator Quay expects to start for Florida next Thursday. The party of Texans, traveling to Canton, reached the city this afternoon, having started from the Lone Star State Thursday morning. The delegation is composed of over sixty representative citizens of Texas, including rail v. ay offi cials, bankers, merchants, lawyers, stockmen, mine owners and capitalists. The delegation came to Canton to pay their respects to the President-elect and to formally present the name or John Grant, national committeeman from Texas, for a cabinet position, the preference being for Postmaster Gen eral. The party occupied two special Pullman coaches and came front ( Ice land. where they paid their respects to National Chairman M. A. Hanna. The party had been served dinner in their car en route from Cleveland and immediately upon arrival, called upon Major McKinley, marching to the resi dence about two o'clock. The dele gation was headed hv President Leach, of the United Republican Club, of Ohio, President H. U. Kane, of Palestine. Texas, and several newspaper men. The party filed into the library, where they were cordially received by the President-elect. After shaking hands with each of the visitors, President !■ ich introduced II in. II. It. Kane, who, on behalf of his fellow citizens, formally presented the greetings of Texas. A memorial recommending Dr. John Grant for a cabinet position was handed the Major. Also a monster peti tion. bound in eight volumes an l contain ing 103.300 names of Republicans, endors ing Mr. Grant. Following Mr. Kane, Major R. M. Grubbs, of Atoka. T. T.. spoke in behalf of his Territory and New Mexico. Major Mc Kinley made formal responses to th* g* n tlemen. paying he would give dm* ai d careful consideration of the matters brought to his attention. A group photograph was taken of tin delegation, after which ' tKey departed. The visitors left for home at 5:30. Before Dr. Nansen started for the north pole the "London Chronicle" agreed to give him £5.000 if he succeeded In r« aching tlie pole and gave the first news of his success to the "Chronicle.” In case he did not reach the pole he was to receive £2.500 if he sent the first news of his fail ure to the pa|s*r. As It turned out Nan sen's letter to the "Chronicle" did not reaeh it until th<* news was already pub lished. ami therefore the question how much money he should receive will be de cided by arbitration. A fine Ludwig Piano, rented but a short time to n well known family in this city, has been returned. To sell quickly, we offer it at a very low price. It will be worth your while to call and see it.
