Coloiirl Gordou'a Ca*e. It happened in a queer way. Colonel Gordon was a pretty busy young man and a very active older man with with no for politics. When it came down to nominating him for congress it was suddenly discovered that he was not eligible. Born outside the lines protected bv the red, white and blue, he had not thought of a thing as taking out citizens papers until a few years ago. In fac:. life was too ofahustlefor him. He was therefoie cot a citizen of this country a sufficient length of time legally, and so, of course, could stand as a candidate for congress. He is however, one of the most dashing members of Governor McKinley's staff. But while a the yesterday. warm admirer of the chief executive of the Suckeye state, be is considered as holding the closest relations to ex-Governor Foraker. "The friends of- Governor Foraker'seem o have carried everything before them at the Republican State Convention," I re marked to him. "Didn't they, though." he said, enthusiastically. "Whv. they just cleaned the plat er, leaving nothing for tbe other lellows. ad how easily, too. They had everything their own way and handled the; convention nst as they pleased. The other side got ompletely rattled--Sherman and all of iiem. I never saw anything like it. And he reception Foraker got! It was amaz- ng.' 1 "McKinley ran away from it, didn't be" asked a irirnd. "Xot a bit of it," said the colonel. "Why, McKiolev would have been just as warmly reeled had he been there." "I was very glad to hear of Harmon's ection.'' said Colonel Gordon. in A huge the W.
