JOBtf W.

The statement Is only partly correct. When Mr. Cleve land was chosen governor of New York in 18tC, he was the owner of one of the best five-story office buildings in the city of Buffalo, ami his fortune was variously estimated to be worth from $150,000 to li">0,000 He was one of t he half doien best lawyers in a city of a quarter of a million inhabitants, and had a practice that has been placed as the first of anyone in Buffalo. This ; statement was [>erhaps an exaggera tion in that it purported to give that for a tact, which probably no man could know. However, Mr. Cleveland had been a very successful lawyer for more than 10 years after having served a profitable term as sheriff of Kr e county, before he weut into politics. He has always been an excellent busi ness man It is unjust to intimate that his present jfroal wealth was ill-gotten. ..Nil .. .1 .. lk .. I.?

That is adding insult to injury . If the Alaska Exhibit shall not be what it ought to be. the fault will be particularly with the department at Washington, and that it might rest where it belongs It behooves the peo ple to aid the commissioner all they can to make the most of a bad ;ob. Gov. Brady's suggestion that Alaska retain the mineral exhibit that will be displayed at St. Louis next year for future use. is a good one, and should lie followed to the letter. Ordinance No. 52.
