LAWYER PATRICK'S NERVE
U. 1 Patent
WHY THE SQTJADRQX SAHBt FROM
Intention Wa Kot to Divert the
Sonsrht by the Itsli&os.
PARIS, April L-. An official of the For
eign Office Informed a representative of
the Associated Press today that the sen
sation which was created hy the depart
ure of the Russian warships from Toulon
Is wholly artificial. It was never in
tended that the whole Russian squadron
should Temaln there during the Franco
Italian festivities, as it was recognized
that the presence of a third party would
tend to check the expression of good feel
ing, while at the same time it might invest
the events at Toulon in the minds of
others with a triple political character
which they do not possess. The Czar wish
es, nevertheless, that the Russian Navy
should greet President Loubet at Tou
lon, and it will be represented by at
least two warships, which will stay there
during the festivities, in which their offi
cers will participate.
A. Russian personage in this city who
was interviewed on the subject spoke In
the same strain, explaining that had the
Russian officers and Varships been in too
great numbers, they might have diverted
to themselves part of the demonstrative
friendliness which the Italians came to
seek In France. He also said that there
"had been a lack of discretion on the
part of the Russian Consul at Toulon,
and declared that the' Russian squadron
hadnever intended to take part in the
fetes. He admits that the departure of
the Russian warships was hastened in
order to cut short the reports in certain
Paris papers, which had been attributing
undue significance of the Russian squad
ron at the present juncture.
Germany 2fot Concerned.
BERLIN, April 4. The recall of the
Russian fleet from Toulon is considered
here to denote Russia's desire not to par
ticipate in festivities which, though she
is an ally of France, she would have a
less share of attention than Italy. A
semiofficial note issued this evening says:
"Germany has In no wise attempted
to interfere with the Franco-Italian meet
ing at Toulon. She regards Italy's ap
pearance here as a mere act of politeness
in return for the French naval visit to
Calgllarl. Germany has reason to believe
that Russia also regards the departure of
the Russian fleet from Toulon as designed
solely not to "hinder the free exchange of
The Berliner Post, in the course of an
obviously inspired article this evening,
gives expression to similar opinions.
PLOT AGAINST LADY COOK.
She As&s Permission to Save Her
Husband's Body Exhumed.
LONDON, April 4. The Echo says It
understands that, in consequence of cer
tain unpleasant rumors. Lady Cook,
widow of Sir Francis Cook, and formerly
Tennle C. Claflin, has applied to the
Home Secretary to have the body of Sir
Francis exhumed. Sir Francis Cook died
February 17. Friends of Lady Cook say
that false stories have been circulated
by a person not related to Sir Francis
took, but who was disappointed at not
being remembered in the will. Lady Cook
desires that -the exact cause of her hus
band's death, which was senile decay (he
-was 84 years old at the time of his death),
shall be officially certified to, so that here
after, in the event of her death, -nothing
can. be alleged against her. The relations
between Lady Cook and her late hus
band's family are. quite .cordial.
Lady Copk, who is living- in Kensington,
London, made the following statement to
a representative of the Associated Press
"Since the death of -my husband there
v "has come to my knowledge a very thor
oughly laid plan, concocted before his
death, to attack his reputation for the
purpose of blackmail. It was about to be
put into execution when he died. Some
parties to the conspiracy expected to se
cure large amounts of money during his
life. His somewhat sudden end prevented
a fulfillment of these hopes. The conspir
acy reached a culmination by the circu
lation of rumors that Sir Francis died
an unnatural death, and owed his demise
to "me, the conspirators .hoping in this
fashion to blackmail me.
"Had I not been a woman of world-wide
reputation, I could have afforded to let
these calumnies die. My own health also
is extremely poor. Should I die now,
these lies might go on forever. I have,
therefore, resolved to refute them now. I
purpose to go to the full limit of an au
topsy, if necessary, in order that the
world may know how base these stories
are. Harrowing as It is, I shall not flinch.
My husband was beloved by me and I by

be stamped out if it costs me all the
courage and wealth I have in the world.
In this I have the full co-operation of all
BRITISH CIVIL LIST.
Aa Revised It Shows an Increase of
LONDON aLpril 4-The report of the
cbmmtfte'frJappelntEdo-to consider changes
in the civil list recommends that the new
civil list be fixed at about 470,000, as fol
lows: Privy purse, 110,000; salaries of
household and retired allowances, 125,000;
expenses of household, 193,000; works,
20.000; royal bounty, alms and special
services, 13,000, and sundries, 8000. The
, report .recommends an annuity of 20,000
to. .the "Duke of Cornwall and York; 10,
' 000 to the Duchess of Cornwall and York,
and 6000 to each of the King's daughters..
The Queen's annuity, in the event of her
surviving the King, Is increased to 70,
000, and an annuity of 30,000 is provided
for the Duchess of Cornwall and York in
the event of her surviving the Duke.
The proposals for the civil list show
a net Increase of 67,000. Mr. Labouchere.
thetsole signatory of trie minority report,
thinks that no increase is necessary. In
a piquant paragraph he says:
"The committee did not deem it within
the scope of their inquiry to consider
"whether a continuance of the pomp and
pride and ceremony of the court is de
sirable. Suggestions have been received
that the cost of living has gone up among
the wealthier classes since her late Maj
esty ascended the throne. This idea
seems to be due to the present ostenta
tious expenditure of some of those who
have suddenly acquired large fortunes.
But your committee does not believe the
sovereign would desire to enter Into
monetary competition with such person,
or encourage by his example such vain
glorious prodigality on the part of his
KING EDWARD'S HEALTH.
Disturbing: Rumors Have Deen Pro
NEW YORK. April 4. A dispatch . to
the Tribune from London says:
The latest reports about the King's
health are reassuring. His throat has
been examined by Sir Felix Simon, and
the recent "disturbing rumors have been
pronounced to be groundless. Sir Felix
is the German throat specialist, who has
been appointed physician extraordinary to
the King, and has been naturalized as a
British ' subject. The King's general
health is good.
The King's special audiences are
watched eagerly by politicians In search
of cues to public affairs. A. X Balfour
v his been followed by Mr. Chamberlain
to Windsor, and the two visits support
the current belief among the best-Informed
people in politics that Lord Salls
"bury's retirement Is impending, and that
the King is quietly arranging conditions
for the reorganization of" the Ministry
withuhe TiJrstLord of the Tfeasury'ln the
Upper House and the Secretary' for the
Colonies as leader-in the House of Com
mons. Bulletins from Arlington street are fa
vorable, and Lord Salisbury's friends as
sert that the family interest, now strong
in the Cabinet, will keep him In office
until the coronation. This is also the view
of the old Tories, who are opposed to
any change, since Mr. Chamberlain can
not fall to profit by Lord Salisbury's
withdrawal. There can be no doubt that
the King's own preference and judgment
wilL determine the succession of the lead
ership of either house.
Von BuIotv's Deal With Italy.
BERLIN, April 4. At the Italian Em
'bassy' in Berlin, It was asserted today that
Count von Bulow, the Imperial Chancel
lor, recently assured Italy that the wishes
of the German Agrarians would be satis
fled only so far as would not prevent a
renewal of the commercial treaty with
Italy. It was added that possibly Count
von Bulow, during the Interview at Ve
rona with the Italian Premier, seized the
opportunity to repeat his promise person
ally to Signor Zanardelll.
A special dispatch to the Vossische
Zeltung from Rome says: "It Is possible
that Count vori Bulow will meet M. Wal-deck-Rousseau,
If the latter's health per
mits, next Monday at the Hotel Danlell,
Venice. Italian circles expect a second
meeting between the German Chancellor
and Signor Zanardelll before the former
returns to Germany."
The .Agrarian organs In Berlin express
a fear that Count von Bulow will unduly
favor Italy regarding the tariff upon agri
Final Grneco-Turliish Treaty.
BERLIN, April 4. A dispatch to the
Frankfurter Zeltung from Constantinople,
dated April 3, 'says that the award of the
Ambassadors who have been arbitrating
the points of difference withheld from the
treaty of peace of 1898 between Turkey
and Greece, was signed yesterday. The
Ambassadors took as a basis for their
decisions on the points of difference the
statement of 200 pages drafted by the
German Ambassador. The decisions have
not yet been made public, but are sub
stantially to the effect that the Ambassa
dors have created for Greece an Interme
diary regime, standing between that of
those states whose citizens in Turkey
enjoy the fullest advantages and those
states whose citizens have no special
privileges. Certain rights enjoyed by
Greece before the war, as well as Greece's
standing as the most-favored nation, are
abolished. Greece retains jurisdiction
over her subjects in Turkey.
Kaiser Congratulates the Sultan.
CONSTANTINOPLE, April 4. The Con
stantinople papers publish today the text
of a telegram sent by Emperor William
to the Sultan immediately after the recent
earthquake in this city:
"It is with deep emotion," said the Em
peror, "that I have just learned what
danger your Majesty was in at that the
time of the feast of Biaram, and how
manifestly God has protected your Majes
ty's precious life. In offering my slncer
est congratulations on your Majesty's es
cape from danger, I cannot conceal my
admiration for the attitude your Majesty
observed, and the example of bravery
given by your Majesty to your subjects
and to the foreigners present. I pray to
the Lord to continue to hold your Maj
esty in his gracious holy keeping."
LONDON, April 4. Dispatches, received
here from Paris reiterate the stories of
affronts to Lord Carrlngton and his suite
while returning from Lisbon .after formal
ly anonunclng King Edward's accession
to King Charles of Portugal. The train
on which the mission traveled conveyed
a number of nurses returning from the
Boec.Army. The, result, says a dispatch
to the Exchange Talegraph Company
from Paris, was that at every station
there 'were anti-British scenes. Lord
Carrlngton and his suite were openly lu
sulted, while the nurses were greeted
with loud cheers. The situation became
so intolerable that the British mission
Anally changed trains.
France In the South Pacific.
LONDON, April 5. The Times has re
ceived the following from its corre
spondent In Wellington. N. Z.:
"France, after establishing a naval sta

warships to Ave within a few weeks, Is
now engaged'' In strengthening her land
defenses. This action is regarded as
menacing British interests in the South
Pope to Denounce Associations Law.
PARIS, April 4. The Matin publishes
a dispatch from Rome asserting that the
Pope is preparing a declaration on the
law of associations,' in which he intends
to condemn the measure more strongly
even than in the letter to the Archbishop
LONDON, April 5. The Trieste corre
spondent of the Daily Express reports
anti-Austrian risings near Trieste and the
burning by incendiaries of the residence
of the Governor of Trieste, Count Goess,
at Levlco in the Austrian Tyrol.
Easter Processions Prohibited.
MADRID, April 4. All the processions
which had been prepared for holy week at
Granada have been prohibited, and such
processions probably will be forbidden
hereafter at Barcelona and. elsewhere.

Cleveland, and Booker Washington.
Booker T Washington In the Outlook.
I met Mr. Cleveland for the first time
when, as President, he visited the Atlanta
exposition. At the request of myself and
others he consented to spend an hour In
the Negro building, for the purpose of In
specting the negro exhibit, and of giving
the colored people In attendance an op
portunity to shake hands with him. As
soon as I met Mr. Cleveland, I became
Impressed with his simplicity, greatness
and rugged honesty. I have met him
many times since then, both at public
functions and at Ws private residence in
Princeton, and the more I see of him
the more I admire him. When he visited
the Negro building in Atlanta he seemed
to give himself up wholly, for that hour,
to the colored people. He seemed to be
as careful to shake hands with some old
colored "auntie," clad partially In rags,
and to take as much pleasure In doing so,
as if he were greeting some millionaire.
Many of the colored people took advan
tage of the occasion to get him to write
his 'name in a book or on a slip of paper.
He was as careful and patient 'in doing
this as if he were putting bis signature
to some great state document.
Mr. Cleveland has not only shown his
friendship for me In many personal .ways,
but has always consented to do anything
I have asked of him for our schools. This
he has done, whether It was to make a
personal donation or to use his Influence
in securing the donations of otliers.
Judging from my personal acquaintance
with Mr. Cleveland, I do not believe that
he Is conscious of possessing any color
prejudice. He Is too great for that. In
my contact with people I find that, as a
rule, it is only the little, narrow people
who live for themselves, who never read
good books, who do not travel, who liever
open up their souls in a way to per
mit the'm-toome into contact with other
1 souls with the great outside World.

PITTSBURG, April 4. Because of the
general prostration of the telegraph
wires, news concerning the effects of yes

but what has come to hand shows the
storm to have been destructive in the
extreme. Butler, McKeesport, Greens-

THE OREGON'S PILOT.
Navigating: Officer Nicholson Took
the Hlg Ship Around the Horn.
Army and Navy Journal.
A" paragraph which has started around
the newspapers having Its origin in the
New York Press, and which may become
embalmed in history is not correctea, at
tributes to an outside pilot the success
ful navigation of the battleship Oregon
through the Straits of Magellan on her
fam'ous run around the Horn during the
Spanish-American War. This pilot, so the
yarn goes, was In the employ of the firm
of W. R. Grace & Co., of New York,
and for hi3"servlces the firm received
$5000 from Uncle Sam. Captain Charles
E. Clark, the Oregon's commander on
that historic voyage, authorizes ujs to say
that their is no truth in any such story.
No one will deny he is entirely right
in not wishing any of the credit due to the
Navy for the excellent performance, of
his ship to be taken from It, The facts
about the passage of the N battleship
through the Straits of Magellan are
these, as we get them from Captain
The Oregon entered the Straits In the
evening and anchored in a heavy gale
at Port Tamar In 52 and 3S fathoms.
Probably some pilot migh't have got a
tietter anchorage, but Captain Clark and
his officers did not know It. The next
day she "ra'n to Sandy Point, which was
reached just after dark. Three or four
days were spent there coaling. The coal
was taken from a ship laden partly
with wool and the wool had to be moved
to get at the coal, making the coaling
job long and tedious. At early daylight,
after the coaling was finished, the Ore
gon got under way and that day ran put
of the Straits. Captain Clark never saw
a pilot on board the Oregon from the
day he joined her at San Francisco till
she reached Key West, where Rear-Admiral
Remey sent one on board to show
where to anchor and to receive coal.

The cat was frequently present in the
parlor In the evening during the recitals
on the piano, and was not always put out
of the house when the household retired.
Several times in the night some" members
of the family thought they heard a slow,
measured drumming on the piano, but
they could not imagine who the musician
could be who would arise from his
bed to play on the Instrument. One night
the mystery was solved.
A lady and her daughter occupied a
room on the first floor adjacent to the par
lor. On the night referred to, she was
awakened from a dream In which she
thought she had been listening to the
thrilling performance of a famous pianist,
and, sure enough, some one was slowly
drumming on .the instrument in the parlor.
Her daughter rose to investigate the mys
tery, and, when she stole into the next
room, Imagine her surprise at seeing Mug
gins deliberately promenading back and
forth on the keyboard, playing what she
evidently fancied to be a "taking" tune.
Afterward she was known to do this
again and again, continuing the perform
ance as much as five minutes at a time,
proving that she was designedly striking
the kej's with her paws for the sake of
the musical effect. It Is obvious that
Muggins had a penchant for the piano,
and that while human fingers had been
thrumming the keys, her feline mind was
busy drawing Its own conclusions and
planning a performance of her own.

INCIDENTS OF THE RICE MURDER
Valet-Secretary Jones Continued His
Story Corroborative Testi
NEW YORK, April 4. There were at
least two Incidents during today's cross
examination of Charles F: Jones, the
valet-secretary of Millionaire William
Marsh Rice, which rose above the ordi
nary. One was a remarK made by Jus
tice Jerome, who presides at the hearing,
and which probably shows why Lawyer
Patrick, accused with Jones of the mur
der of the Texan, has all along taken
the accusations of Jones against himself
with, a demeanor almost bordering on
contempt. Attorney Moore, for the de
fense, had asked that when the hearing
closed for the day, it be not resumed un
til Tuesday. Justice Jerome seemed will
ing and then added: "It is necessary
that "Jones testimony as to this murder
should be corroborated. He being a self
confessed accomplice, his testimony alone
Is not enough upon which to hold
Attorney Moore tersely added to this:
"We understand that, and we suppose the
District Attorney does, too."
Tonight those who are v watching the
case closely are wondering what corrob
orative testimony the state will intro
duce to sustain the claims of Jonas.
The other incident brought out in the
clearest light the Indomitable nerve of
Patrick. In the face of the reiterated
story of Jones that Patrick had Instigated
the forgeries and the actual muider, the
latter took his place in the court pro
ceedings with the utmost nonchalance. At
one point It became necessary that a
statement -made by Jones be read, and It
was given into the hands of one of the
counsel for the defense for that purpose.
This was the statement In which the
vaiet claimed Patrick killed Rice, and
which he has since denied. The reader
hesitated and stumbled over the written
words. Suddenly Patrick spoice up, ex
claiming: "Here, I guess I can make it out; I'll
This was agreed to, and in a loud, clear
voice he read: " 'P' got a towel and
sponge and saturated the sponge with a
colorless liquid he had in a bottle. Then
he went into the room where 'R' lay in
bed. I (Jones) was not in the room, but
opened the door and peeped in. P was
standing over 'R' with the cone-shaped
towel In his hand, and he pressed It
down over 'R's' face." Patrick was still
reading with no show of emotion when
Justice Jerome ordered a recess for
luncheon. The "P's" and "R's" in the
statement stand for Patrick and Rice.
At another point In the proceedings Jus
tlca Jerome gave his estimate of Jones
with characteristic terseness. Attorney
Moore had been raking the witness with
questions all tending to bring out the
valet's lying propensities. He showed that
Jones had lied to and deceived his own
father when the latter called on him in
the hospital after he had attempted sui
cide; that he had told untruths to Assis
tant District Attorney Osborne nnd that
he had lied to his own counsel. Here
Justice Jerome struck In with the re
mark : "This witness is a weak, wicked
and unfortunate man. He is a self-confessed
murderer and deserves contempt,
but I won't allow you to Insult him."

SAFE BLOWN OPEN.
Robbery of a Country Bunk After a
CHAPDON, O.. April 4. A gang of a
half-dozen robbers early today blew open
the safe of the Citizens' Savings Bank
here( and after a desperate fight with
NIghtwatchman Pomeroy and a citizen,
succeeded in making their escape. The
robbers secured less than $200. Night
watchman Pomeroy discovered the men
at work in the bank. He was seized,
bound and gagged, but not until he had
shot one of the burglars. Dr. Hudson,
who lives near the bank, was aroused by
the noise and came to the scene. He was
also seized and tied hand and foot. It
required three big charges of dynamite
to blow the safe door off. After com
pleting their work the robbers left town
on a handcar. Early today two men were
arrested at Wllloughby upon the charge
of being members of the gang.
The robbers succeeded in gaining en
trance to only one compartment of the
big safe. In another part, which was not
reached, it is said nearly $30,000 was
stored. Pomeroy Is badly used up. After
he shot one of the burglars he was un
mercifully clubbed over the head. After
being bound and gagged, the watchman
was dragged Into the bank. He lay there
a witness to operations. At each ex
plosion the robbers retired to places of
safety. Pomeroy lay in an exposed place,
and no attention was paid to him, except
that one of the robbers, wKose arm had
evidently been broken by the shot from
Pomeroy's revolver, occasionally give him
a kick In the ribs as he passed.
The robbers were a long time getting
Into the vault. They gathered up loose
coins lying about, then went at the strong
box. They exploded several charges, but
could not force It. After an Investigation
today, Cashier C. L. Smith, of the bank,
"The robbers got $125 in gold; $20,000 in
certificates held against the bank by Indi
viduals, and $25,000 or $30,000 worth of
mortgages and other securities belonging
t'o Individuals. None of the paper taken
is negotiable. There was $30,000 in cur

Three Men Wounded in a San Fran
cisco Saloon Row.
SAN FRANCISCO, April 4. Two men
were fatally shot" and one seriously
wounded In Joseph Anderson's saloon on
Pacific street early this morning. Joseph
H. Cordes, of Elmhurst, Alameda County,
did the shooting. He was trying to kill
Kitty Elsel, who formerly lived with him,
but missed her each time and struck three
innocent bystanders, all of whom were
sailors. John Carlson was the first of the
victime to succumb. He died almost Im
mediately after his arrival at the harbor
receiving hospital. Peter SJorgen, of the
transport Indiana, was shot through the
"head. He was hurried to the city receiv
ing hospital. A casual Inspection con
vinced the surgeons that SJorgen would
soon die. A. J. Shanley, of the bark
Harvester, was shot In the back. At the
city receiving hospital the bullet could
not be located. His chances for recovery
are fair. j

Famine In India.
As to direct prevention of famine in In
dia, though it Is obviously impossible to
control the rainfall, we have done much to
increase the artificial means of Irriga
tion. For more than 20 years a portion
of the surplus revenue has been set aside
for a "famine Insurance fund." and ha.
been spent not only on actual. relief of
distress, when it 'occurs, but on canals,
tanks, railways and roads and on light
ening of the public burdens, so that,
should extra taxation be ever necessary.
In an emergency, the Indebtedness of the
country should not on the whole Increase.
From, this and other funds we have spent
on canals (mostly during the last fifty
years), about 4S,C00,000, and 36,000 miles at
canals are now open. On railways up
to the year 1SSS about 155,000,000 had been
spent. The result Is seen In provinces
like SIndh, once an arid desert, but now
capable of cultivation, and supporting 2.
000,000 people; In parts of the Punjab,
which have become quite independent of
the rainfall; In Madras, where irrigation
has often more than quadrupled the value
of the land, and like effects in many
other districts. Unfortunately, irriga
tion is not a panacea of universal appli
cation. In a hilly country like much of
Central India, canals are Impossible. The
small rivers, which are alone available
for feeding some canals, dry up entirely
In seasons of drought, and so do also
tanks, reservoirs and wells. Science can
not yet entirely subdue the forces of na
ture. There remains, then, the grim fact that
famines always have occurred in India as
far back as history can trace, and they
probably always will occur more or less
severely. Meanwhile let it be a con
solation to those who have some feeling
for that uphappy country to know that
what money, skill, and hard work can do
to mitigate Its sufferings at the present
moment, is being done according to
the best traditions of English public serv
ice, and what higher standard could be

"My son." said the fond but wise parent.
"you are leaving me to go out into the
world. I have nothing to give you but ad
vice. Never tell a lie. If you wish to put
one in circulation, get It puollshed. A lie
cannot live, but it takes one a blamed
long time to fade out of print.
"Always read your contract. A man
might consider he was getting a sinecure
if he were offered a position picking blos
soms off a century plant, but, you see. he
wouldn't have a remunerative occupation
if he were paid on piece work.
"Be not oveccrltical. Even the most
ordinary sort of genius can tell when tha
other fellow Is. making a fool of himself.
"Remember, that the young man, liko
the angler's worm. Is rather better for
being visibly alive.
"Be careful In the choice of your sur
roundings. Environment will do a great
deal for a man. For example, flour and
water In a china jug Is cream sauce; In
a pall on the sidewalk. It Is blllstlcker's
"Don't forget that there's a time for
everything and that everything should be
done In Its proper time. Never hunt for
bargains In umbrellas on a rainy day.
"You may make enemies. If you know
who they are don't mention them. Silence

otherwise be spent In defending a libel

One of the most romantic burials in
history waa that of Alnric, the King of
the West Goths, who invaded Italy,
captured and sacked Rome August 24,
410. After this success he was preparing
to carry his arms Into Sicily, when he
died suddenly at Cosentla. Italy. His
soldiers buried hint in the bed of the
River Busento, after turning the water
Into another channel. With him was In
terred great treasure and digging was
done by prisoners, who afterward were
put to death that the exact spot might
remain unknown. ' Another Roman con
queror, Attlla the Hun, was burled in
453 A. D In midst of a plain. His body
was Inclosed in three cofflns the first
of gold, the second of silver, the third and
outer of iron. He, like Alarlc. was sur
rounded by great treasure and burled
by prisoners who were afterwards killed.
A. third, secret and romantic burial was
that of the Spanish explorer, Fernando da
Soto, the discoverer of the Mississippi
River. Shortly after finding the river
he died of malarial fever, and to keep his
body from failing Into the hands of the
savages It was placed In a coffin which
at midnight was taken to the middle ot
the great stream and sunk.
It Is neither a new word nor a new Idea
In politics. It means ability and forti
tude in blending during a campaign col
ors and substances which are not per
mitted to come Into contact that Is, pub
liclyat any other time. .
The campaign "mixer" must have no
over-refined sight, hearing, smell, taste or
touch. Garlic must be to him as attar of
roses. He must beware the example of
that nice gentleman who a few years ago
In this city temerariously invited a gar
den crowd "to take a glass of layger with
me." Brands of cigars are not so Im
portant with the "mixer" as their num
ber. No "citizen" Is to be "fat" or
"greasy" until after the balloting. Balls
nightly, though Lenten ashes strew so
ciety, and handshaking unlimited If not
able to make speeches.
The "mixer" of the campaign Is, how
ever, a comparatively Innocent and pic
turesque person compared with your true
"mixer," whose avocation does nob be
gin until after the campaign Is- finished
and there are votes not to seek, but to
sell. The campaign "mixer" Is open and
above board. Your trUe "mixer" "mixes'
behind closed doors.
