Conversion of Man Who Villified Henry Clay. How the Famous Statesman, When Secretary of State, Made a Firm Friend Out of a Most Bitter Erjemy. By E. J. EDWARDS. "One of the most interesting inci dental experiences that I had when serving as postmaster general in Pres ident Garfield's cabinet," said Thomas L. James to me recently, "happened one day when 1 walked iul.u Lliu cabi net room to see the president and found there instead Gen. Simon Cam eron of Pennsylvania, whose son-in law, Wayne Mac Veagh, was Garfield's attorney general, seated at a window that gave a vista of the Potomac and smoking a very large and black cigar. "After the senator had explained that the president had been called away for a while, the talk became general. Finally, something led me to ask the general if he remembered his first visit to Washington. 'Indeed, I do,' he said, 'and I'll tell you all about It. 'I first went to Washington in the latter part of February, 1S28. It was Just four days before the inauguration of Andrew Jackson. At my hotel, the morning after my arrival, I met a Pennsylvania friend, and also a Demo cratic member of congress from Penn sylvania. My friend told me that he had an adjudicated claim and that there was a voucher for it in the state department, but that he couldn't get it. I replied that I was going to see Henry Clay, secretary of state, and that I would take him along with me. Then I turned to the congressman. "You'll come with us, won't you?" I asked.' "'"I! Go to see that scoundrel!" lie exploded. "I should feel ashamed of myself. I regard him as the great est scoundrel and reprobate in Amer ica, and I shouldn't be afraid to tell him so to his face." Well, I urged my Democratic friend to come along with us, promis ing that he would find no monster in Hp.irv C.la.v. :uid finally he reluctantly 'A The Wise's pleasure at the Stork's thoughtfulness was tempered by Mrs. Wise's following illness and her inability to provide nourishment for the Blessing.

I introduced my friend, saying that he wanted to adjust a little matter, telling Mr. Clay what I was, and then I introduced the Democratic congressman in these words: Mr. Secretary. I have brought up this Democratic congressman to see you. He is the rankest Andrew Jack son Democrat in Pennsylvania. He has villified and abused you ttpon the stump, and everywhere else. lie says you are the worst political scoundrel In the United States. But I know him on the whole as a mighty good man, and I want him to know you." 'Mr. Clay held out both hands, and bestowed a smile upon his villifier which I thought was the most fasci nating I had ever seen, lie held the lmiulc in lii'o called a clerk, told him to get the voucher for the claim, and declared that it was an inexcusable error that the voucher had not been forwarded. 'Then he began talking to the An drew Jackson Democrat. He asked him about politics in Pennsylvania. He told him that he had heard of his ability as a campaigner. In a little while my Andrew Jackson friend be gan to melt. Mr. Clay giving almost his entire attention to him. 'By and by we rose to go. Mr. Secretary," I said, "you have only four more days in this office, and I won't intrude upon your time any longer." "No. stay a little while longer," bagged Mr. Clay, "I want to talk with my friend a little more." 'At. last we made another start and this time Mr. Clay accompanied us to the door. My Andrew Jackson friend lingered a little, and so did I, out of curiosity, and then I heard him say: "Mr. Clay, it is true that I have traduced and villitied you. I have called you all manner of hard names. But I want, to say now that I feel humilated for what I have said and done, and I extend to you my pro found apologies. I now know you as you are." "'"My friend," smiled Mr. Clay, "no apologies are necessary. Words that are said in the heat of politics have no offensive personal meaning." 'And do you know,' added Gen. Cameron, 'that man returned to Penn sylvania, devoted to Henry Clay, and he was his ardent champion as long as he lived.' to which 1 sy ndicati 1 ./V "Wi Pi.l «ii2S la ""'Hliif 0 Second You will be entitled to 01)0 or more acres which we propose over KH) per cent on every acre on completing tin- plans now matur nominal price at 1 Total Ythan OUR best salesman cannot work more 12 hours a day.
