Hon. Andrew Itoy. of den Hoy. Jackson
county, until recently state mine inspector.
was In Springfield the other day, and know
ing him to be well acquainted with John
McHride, democratic candidate for the of
fice of secretary of state, I took occasion to
pet some pointers from him on Mr. Mc-Uride-
"Oh. ye." said Mr. Roy. "I've known
John McHride ever since he wore short
dresses. As a man I have nothing to say
against him, but as a workingman and pol
ltician he is bogus. You know he is held
ui y the democratic press as a candidate
taken right from the ranks of the working
men, but that it all buncomb. 1 believe he
did work a little In the mines when he was
a boy, but work and McBride never agreed.
He was residing then In Massillon, and at
the ace of seventeen ran away from home
and enlisted in the regular army. He re
turned home In about three years and went
to work again in the mines, but he
soon got tireo. Alter leaving ine mine
he was appointed on the Massillon police
force, and was finally electad president of
the Miners' Union. That organization in
cludes about one-tifth of the miners in Ohio
and has succeeded in distinguishing itself
by fighting the Knights of Labor. Ever
since McBride has been connected with the
Miners' Union he lias used the organization
as a stepping-stone to advance hlm-lf, and
as a means to further his personal enr's.
"His seat in the general assembly was
secured by his osing as a workingman aul
as the workinguien's friend. He is now In
a position to advance the interests of the
laboring clashes, but he is willing to kick
them aside to advance himself. Just as he
used the organization of which he is the
head to get into the Ohio house, he is now
using It to secure his election to the office
of secretary of state. When lie was a can
didate for the nomination be represented to
his own organization, to Uie Knights of La
bor, and to all other labor organizations,
that he was nut a democrat; that he
was simply a workingmen's representative,
and in case the . republicans nominated a
a representative workingman for secretary
of state lie would decline to run on the
democratic ticket and would take off his
coat and work for the success of the repub
lican ticket He had prominet men in the
ranks of labor all over the state write to
the leading democratic politicians urging
his nomination, and it was by sucli means
and on such representations that his nomi
nation was secured.
"He is a demagogue of the worst type,
and the Hocking valley miners are begin
ning to realize, that fact Hecent meetings
helil in that valley have soured the miners
on him. These meetings were called in the
interest of the Miners' Union, and for the
pur)o$e of booming that organization. Re
publican miners subscribed several hundred j be pleased should the custom become gen
dollars to Insure the success of the meet-1 cral and I think it will in time. I mean
ings, and then McBride had the stupendous j Dy ladles not the "full dress," or undress,
cheek to turn the meetings into a political j kind, but those who wear the garb of the
boom' for himself. John is cun-, averane United States citizen. It is need-
ning. He imjiorted democratic miners
from Pennsylvania to make speeches in his
behalf, and to urge, the miners to vote for
him. It is said that these speakers were
paid for their services by the democratic
state committee. This action on the part
of McBride mortally offended the republi
can miners who were, prior to that time,
very friendly toward him, and they will
vote solidly against him. I tell yon, there's
no fear of a disaffection among republicans
iu the nocking Valley.
"Miners, as a class, and labor organiza
tions generally, including the Knights of
Labor, are opposed to their leaders accept
ing nominations from the old parties jes.
and from new parties, too," said Mr. Hoy,
iu answer to my question.
"Their view is that thpy are and ever
will be divided politically, and they think
that if one of their leaders is taken up by
one of the old parties. It is merely a ruse by
which the party hopes to trade on
their political convictions. That Is
the way they view McBride's nomination.
A man's political convictions are like his
religion not to be traded upon. Powder-
ly refused a congressional nomination and
McBride is the only man I know who lias
used a labor unions a stepping stone to
his own political advancement
"I think he will receive less votes than
any man on the state ticket, for he has tre
mendous opposition among the democratic
miners of the Hocking Valley, who, in a
case like this, will stick to their republican
brethren. McBride has used them as cats'
paws once too often and they do not propose
to assist in boosting him into a soft place
where be can do them no good."
"Sea legs you have doubtless heard of;
but did it ever occur to you that there was
such a tiling as railroad legs?" said an ex
press messenger to me. the other day. Just
after he had prevented me from falling
through the side door of a baggage car, as
the train rounded an abrupt curve.
I seized his arm to steady myself, as I
replied that I had never given the matter
any thought, although 1 had noticed that a
man could adapt himself to the roughest
riding on the fastest trains. "Is the knack
all in the legs?" I asked.
"Yes, all of it," he replied. You stand
in a certain way on your feet and j-our
jolnts, from the hips down, accommodate
themselves to the motion of the cars. Watcli
me while I record this express matter.
You write a very fair hand, I presume, at
your desk, but I doubt if anybody could
make out anything you might write while
standing up in this car, and.it would be
wore if you were sitting down."
Taking his pencil and book, the express
messenger proceeded first to unhinge all his
joints, and second to write in very legible
characters in the book, which he held
loosely In his left hand. Ills weight was
thrown on the balls of his feet, his knees
bowed forward and sideways, every sinew
seemed to be relieved from tension, and Ids
body swung easily iu his hip joints as the
car jumped and swayed on its trucks. The
motion of the car did not affect his body I

cently to and fro. While he piled
the pencil his elbows were held
away from his sides, and the
littlo finger of his left hand supported the
book on which the ball of lib right hand
"It's all the result of experience," lie
said, on laying aside his book. "When a
man gets on a railroad he must discard
stitf Joints and put springs in his knees. In
rough riding he mut Ieam to keep his
weight on thu balls of his feet and let the
spring of his instep assist in killing the
Jolting. His heels should leave the lloor at
every jump, and at the same time his knees
should tike up the slack. Just notice the
practiced railroader walk through a car and
then observe how the passenger, who does
not ride often, w ill fall around and grab at
the arms of the seat as he tries to follow
him. Drummers, and those who ride often,
learn the act and do not make exhibitions
of themselves, but it is really comical to
watch those on a train who have never ac
quired railroad legs."
The campaign is fairly on, and from now
until the ioIls close on the 2d of Xovcmber
ever" inch of )olitical vantage ground will
be bitterly contested. The republicans now
have their campaign paint on, and, as they
have always done In years gone by, they
will make a bold, daring, brilliant fight
and a light that will win. Democrats and
anti-Kennedy men generally have believed
that republicans would make a heartless
struggle this fall, but they are being rapidly
disillusioned. The vigorous manner in
which republicans have taken up the cam
paign work during the past week has made
democratic eyes protude to such an extent
that they could be knocked off with a stick,
and one doesn't hear so much of their bold
talk about beating "Hob" as he heard two
weeks ago. Their confidence is on the
wane, and in another week they will be on
the run.
The following very timely tld-bitis from

Address , Xew York." So read
an advertisement which attracted the atten
tion of a Center street lady, not long ago.
Heing somewhat curious to know what the
articles were, she sent the quarter, and in
due time receieed in return twenty-five
shining needles.
I notice that In some of the large cities a
movement is on foot to'have ladies remove
their hats In a theater. A check room is
proposed In which all unnecessary wraps,
hats, and bonnets may be left by patrons of
the theater upon entering, and at which
they may receive them again as they depait
This is an innovation most devoutly to be
wished for, and it would be a good idea if
it could be put in practice in Spring
field. I think all ladies would
less to say that a lady looks much more
bu&utiful at a play without a hat or bonnet
than she does with one, and the play looks
much more beautiful to the people behind
her. It is to be hoped that the custom will
grow until hats arc no more worn by ladies
in theaters than by men. Max.

and heaved up Jonah near Kidder's restau

drunk damsel, although some of her friends
attempted to secure her release on the plea
that she only drank three glasses of beer.
It is said she took sugar in her "coffee"
which occasioned the sickness. Fred Wil

course it was left to Kizer to arrest the poor,
inoffensive and much abused Doc. White

o'clock Saturday afternoon.
The only Important arrest of the evening
was that of Ceo. Freitch, the Market street
saloonkeeper, for permitting a con
cert or theater to run in con
nection with his saloon. Two
concert singers. May Lawrence and Lizzie
Hoben, were also arrested, and the charge
of loitering about a saloon put opposite
their names. The whole party were re
leased, without leaving the saloon, on
Trletch putting up S50 for his own appear
ance Monday and $10 each for the women.
Although there has been considerable talk
of pulling this saloon ever since it added
the concert feature, this is the first attempt
in that line. One of the women wanted to
leave the city last evening, but this little ac
cident made it necessary to postpone the
departure for a time.

Tho fancy dress party and reception giv
en by Mr. and Mrs. John H. Thomas and
Miss Xellie Thomas, at their residency on
east High street Thursday evening, was an
event of much magnitude and constituted a
brilliant lnaugual of the social season Iu
Springfield. The features of the graceful
affair have been given such generous and
laudatory space in. the city dailies that It
seems superfluous to re-enter into them.
Suffice It to say that the entertainment was

Mr. Thomas and his family for brilliant
hospitality. ,

library, where the guests were received.
The house was tastefully but not lavishly
decorated with tlowers, and the fancy cos
tumes of the guests and all the gay para
phrenalia that characterized the affair,
made a spectacle of dazzling beauty. The
music was furnished by Foreman's orches
tra and was superb, i Dancing occupied
much of the evening, the" slow languorous
walztes of Strass and Waldtenfel being fa
vorites. Supper was served all evening in
the dining hall below, the menu consisting
of the following: v.
Quail on toast with French peas and jel
lied cranberry sauce; sweet bread, with
mushrooms; French bread, olives, pickles,
chicken salad, conseroes bon-bons, fruit,
ice cream, molded cake, 'assorted French
candies, coffee and chocolate. The cos

John L. Zimmerman. Esq., the blonde
and gifted young democratic attorney and
statesman, has a rare treat in store for his
associates in the profession which he so
distinctly adorns the practice of the law.
Some evening of the coming week the
writer is under an oath as binding as the
pledges in the 32d degree of free masonry,
not to state just xchlch evening
Mr. Zimmerman will give a
"stag" I" reception and supper at
his palatial office in the Commercial block.
The guests present will be entirely of the
male type, inheriting the quality from their
parent on their father's side. It goes with
out saying that Mr. Zimmerman will see
that everything is perfect of its nature.
Severaltases of rare old vintage, on which
the cobwebs of decades wave gray and dim

cellar will be broken, and their ruby con
