scarcely worth considering, and success in
that field is proof of no common talents.
In 1870 he entered the law office of J. W.
Scudder, an eminent railroad attorney, and
in the intervals of study and office work con
tributed to the local press. In 1874 he was
admitted to the bar and soon acquired a good
practice. His liberal treatment of poor cli-1
ents made him popnlar, and he soon be
came a power in local politics. In 1881 he
was elected assemblyman. In 1882 he was
elected to congress and was three times re
elected, but in 1890 there was a bad break
tn his political arrangements.
Be bad married a Virginia lady and fallen
into the habit of passing much of his vaca
tion time in that state. He had invested
largely there and had talked of making his
home at Lynchburg. The cry was raised
that he was practically a citizen of Virginia,
and this, with other causes, led to his being
set aside by the convention. Edward Fran
cis McDonald was nominated by the Demo
crats, and the district gave him its usual
majority of 5,000 or so. Mr, McAdoo had
received a plurality somewhat higher.
It is a fine tribute to his personal qualities
that the Jersey City boys who went to
school with him have been his warmest
supporters. He is of medium height, rath
er spare, witb dark hair and mustaches.
Without any pretense to oratory, be Is nev
ertheless a very effective speaker, talking
tn a very plain and familiar style. A high
compliment to his style of speaking is eon
veved in the statement of an admiring con
stituent that "any man can learn some
thing from it and any common sense boy
can understand it."
He is affectionately known about home
as plain "Billy" and "Honest Billy." It
was claimed at the time of his election that
he was the youngest man to hold a seat in
congress since the days of Hayne and Clay,
but two or three others have proved a little
better claim to that honor. He entera on

under General Sir Samuel Browne occu

in the Khyber Pass. Mr. Forbes rode

between India and England in favor of the
latter, and the London papers containing
thin telegram dated 10 a. m. were selling in
Fleet street at 9 a. m., one hour of appar
ent time before it was dispatched. Its an
ticipation of time, however, did not end
here. Owing to the five hours' difference

The fur cap trade is centered in the
Freuch quarter. Sealskin caps are less
popular than they once were, but some
thuusauds of them are annually made in
this city. They are made from portions of
skin too small to be used In the best

It requires a knowledge ol lurs, and many

in comparatively small snops sucn as are
