Job ii and 111 ike. It is like the knitting of the soul of Jona than into tho soul of David, to observe the friendship of Mr. John French and Mr. Michael Dady. Aforetime, they were asunder. asunder. The Alderman was regarded by the Building Inspector as a pious fraud. The Binding Inspector was regarded by the Alder man as a "vessel of wrath. The estimate either had of tho other did him an injustice, and it is one in which we pointedly decline to concur. Up through the baser parts of his nature, however, "Mike" was transformed into companionship with his better in ner man. The report goes, that finding finding that Mr. French was. a political political power (degree not mentioned), "Mike" shrewdly began by pretending to like him, aud ended by really loving him. By a re - verso course, the Alderman passed from sin - cere distrust into genuine alteotiou tor tue Inspector. "Mike" owns now that the pretense was all on his side but that now he is con verted to sincerity and loyalty. He concedes that Mr. French was originally as sincere in his auti Dadyism as he is now in his pro Dadyisui. The union betweon the pair is said to have been irrevocably established at the Twentieth Ward Republican Aldermanio primary, whereiuto Dady imported himself and wherein it was shown that one man from Flushing avenue could vote as often as four men from Clinton avenue and Adelphi street a fact which has mado W. W. Goodrich, Charles C. K. Smith and others loso themselves themselves in wonder aud suspicion ever since. Be that as it may, Mr. French and Mr. Dady are now arcades ambo, reformers both, and they aro ready to appear as Damon and Pythias be fore any Eepublican General' Committee at a moment's notice.
