A PERFECT TERROR. DISHES THAT ART WORTH ADD, ING TO THE DAILY MENU. I IN THE PUBLIC EYE 1 JOHN WORTH KERN John Worth Kern, selected by the Democratic convention at Denver as Bryan's running mate in the national campaign of this fall, is conceded to be the leader of the Indiana Democracy. Mr. Kern has run several times for governor, and each time he was said to have reunited the warring factions of the Democratic party and to have won over a large Republican following, but each time he was badly defeated. He was elected city attorney in Kokoino in 1871 and served several years. He was elected reporter of tha Indiana supreme court, but was defeated for re election. He served two terms in the state senate and one as city attorney of Indianapolis, but some Republican always happened to come along to oust him. This does not imply that Mr. Kern is a weak or an unpopular man in his state, for he is neither. Democracy was on the down grade in Indiana when he was coming to the front, and was only kept from dissolution by the phenomenal strength of United States Senator Voor heeR, the "tall sycamore of the Wabash," who managed to have a Democratic) legislature elected just in time to re-elect him to the senate when his term expired. Since he dropped out of politics just before his death, a little over ten years ago, Demon acy in Indiana had been practically wiped off the map, and Mr. Kern has had no more show than would a Democrat in Michigan. He is a graduate of the University of Michigan, and for a time practiced law in Kokomo, out. later moved to Indianapolis, where he has since lived. He has n high reputation in hit- native state, and is a man of considerable per sonal magnetism. WINFIELD SCOTT HAMMOND Winfield Scott Hammond, the man who placed i he name of Gov. Johnson in nomination for the; presidency, is a member of congress from thfl Second Minnesota district. Hammond is the official Johnson nominator. This thing of nominating Johnson may almost be said to have become a habit with him. Ha nominated Johnson at the Minnesota state conven tion one time, and to the surprise of a large number of peopl who thought they knew some thing about the game of politics the country edl tor was nominated. To the surprise, too, of an even larger number of people, he was elected. When his term was out Congressman Hammond arose before another state convention and nomi nated him again. This time the outcome was not so unexpected. When the Minnesota executive made up his mind to let his name go be fore the Democratic national convention it was suggested to him that he per mit some eloquent orator, some spellbinder of the Hourke Cockran type, to make the nominating speech Cut Mr. Johnson balked. "Out there in St. James, Minn.," he said, "there is a plain-spoken sort of chap who does my nominating just about the way 1 like to have it done. I have had some experience with his brand of nominating, and I don't know that I have a single objection to make to it. And 1 reckon, when I have any more nominating to be done, I'll just let. Win Hammond do it, for he's my mascot." Hammond lives in one of the string of towns up in Minnesota that seem to have been christened by some pious persons in the intervals between piaver meetings and Epworth league sessions. He lives in St. James. Gov. Johnson lives in St. Peter, and when he left there It was to go to St. Paul. Congressman Hammond is Massachusetts-born, a Dartmouth graduate and when he came west in 1S8I he taught school for six years. Then he began the practice of law. He is cn his first term in the house. LEVIN IRVING HANDY Levin Irving Handy t of Delaware came into the limelight at the Denver convention after an absence of years, because of his selection by the managers of Judge George Gray's presidential campaign as the man to place the Delaware jurist before the delegates as a candidate for president. Iiesides being a politician and an orator, Mr. Handy has been a newspaper writer, a lecturer and a school teacher. In 1898 and 1899 he was the entire congressional delegation of the state of Delaware in the lower rouse of congress, nnd for a little while he was the whole delegation in both houses, during the brief period in which both seats in the senate were vacant. After serving one term, Handy was defeated for re-election by a Republican and retired to private life. Mr. Handy was born in Maryland 46 years ago, and was educated in the public schools. He taught school in his nativo state and in Delaware, was school superintendent of a county in the latter slate for several years, and later became an editorial writer on Every Even ing, a Wilmington daily newspaper. In preparation for the recent crisis, apparently, he became a public lecturer, and for a number of years delivered lectures throughout the country upon assorted topics, calculated to appeal to the patrons of the local lycei ;n lecture courses in town and city. Fiom 1892 till 1890 he was chairman of the Democratic state cendal committee of Delaware. Gooseberry Pudding a Splendid Des sert Brown Chicken Fricassee Flounders In a New Way.
