TWO GOOD STCRIES,
In Which Some Prominent Politicians
The New York correspondent of the Phil
adelphia Press tells the following stories:
I heard Ex-Senator Tom Ecclessine tell
a couple of good election stories the other
evening. Said he: “A friend of mine named
Devlin was beaten for the Tammany ro
nomination for Assemblyman, and the next
day he called at my office and had a talk
with me about the way he had been treated.
‘I didn’t git a square deal, d’ye see,’ said he,
’an’ I kin beatdeduff oaten oe stiff dey give
de noiuanashuus to, d’ye see, an’ I want you
teh help me.’ 1 expressed my willingness
to aid him by any means in my power.
‘Dat’s wot I fought, yell'd do,’ he replied. T
want.yell to take mo up an’ blow me off to
de old man.’ By the 'old mim’ ho meant
the sage of Gramercy Park. ‘All
right,’ I responded; ‘we’ll go up
and see him.’ We were not long
in reaching Mr. Tiklen’s house and were im
mediately ushered into its beautiful parlor.
Wishing to prepare Mr Tilden for the gen
tlemen he was to meet, I made some excuse
to Devlin, slipped out of the parlor and into
the Governor’s study, where I posted him on
the situation. 1 then returned to my friend.
Presently Mr. Tilden shuffled in, buttoning
his bad eyelid up with his good hand and
greeting me as though we had not met be
fore that day. ‘Allow me,’ said I, ‘to pre
sent my friend, Mr. Devlin.’ In his blandest
manner the old man turned, gave a sudden
start as though recognizing an old friend,
and then said in his sweetest, whisper: ‘I
need no introduction to Mr. Devlin. If I
mistake not he was in the Assembly when I
was Governor.’ ‘Yes. t was,’ responded
Devlin, tickled to death at being remem
bered by the great man, 'an’ I waz wid vo
all through, you bet.’
“ ‘Ah, yes. Thanks! thanks!’ responded
the Governor, waiting for Devlin to break
the ice. Presently bo did so, as follows:
‘ Yeh see, Guvemor, I haven’t had a square
deal. Dem fellahs has double-banked me,
an’ I want to git even. I kin beat, der
stuffin’out’u deh muff det’s nomanated, an’
1 wanted teb see of you wouldn’t help me
out.’ The Governor listened very compla
cently to this statement, and then replied:
‘ 1 have been so busy of late with important
law matters that I have not bad time to
give campaign affairs much attention. I
will, however, consult with our friends,
nnd will lie glad to to see yon again.’ Just
then he was summoned out of the room. I
knew that the confab was over and waited
for Devlin to rise arid make a show of leav
ing. He did nothing of the kind, however,
but for a minute made a very thorough
mental inventory of the value of the fur
nishings of the room and then ejaculated;
‘Soi. de old man must be pooty w 11 fixed?”
“ ‘lt is currently believed,’ I replied, ‘that,
while practicing the arts of statesmanship
the Governor lias not wholly neglected his
business opportunities, and that, consequent
ly, be possesses a faft share of this world’s
goods.’ After giving him a moment to re
flect on this 1 rose nnd asked: ‘Hadn’t we
bet er go? What are we waiting for?’
“ ‘Wot are we waiting fer?’ be responded,
in amazement. "VVy. fer de stuff, of course.
Does de old man * tink I kin run dis cam
paign on wind?’ With hard work, 1 re
pressed my inclination to indulge in a roar
of laughter, and then got Devlin out of the
house as best I could. He never got any
'stuff’ from ‘the old man,’ however, and it
is almost needless to say he made no cam
paign against Tammany’s nominee.”
'The other story was about a gentleman
who is now the glass of fashion and the
mould of form, though his name is not
Martine, Fellows or Nicoll. “It was during
the famous campaign in Maine several
years ago. when the Democracy had h'gh
hopes of wrestling the State out of the Re
publican column,” said the handsome Col
onel, “that a number of .mart young Dem
ocratic orators were sent there to help the
cause by their oratory. Among them was
a young gentleman who, on account of a
temporary misunderstanding with his
tailor, was minus an overcoat. On
arriving at Portland, he succeeded
in persuading the State Campaign
Committee that it would be a
good thing to keep him at the Plymouth
House in reserve to take the place of any
Demosthenes who might get sick or other
wise incapacitated from keeping his en
gagements. In this way he had what the
rest of us who had to rough it through the
country thought was a soft snap. A few
weeks before the campaign closed lie had,
however, to take the place of a sick states
man, and late one afternoon he arrived at a
town where he was to sqieak in the open air
that evening He was taken in charge by a
rock-ribbed Democrat, who took him to his
own house for supper. After discussing a
splendid meal ami doing full justice to it, lie
will ked through the ballon his way to the
parlor. A beautiful blue-black satin-lined new*
overcoat hung from a peg on the rack, and a
desire to possess it immediately struck him.
W hen the conveyance that was to carry him
and his host to the meeting arrived at the
door he got up, walked to the ball, took his
hat and remarked: ‘The weather was so
pleasant when I left New York that I never
thought it would be so chilly up here. [
hope I won’t take cold to-night.’ Then ho
shuddered, ns though suffering from an im
aginary clull, and continued: 'I am very
susceptible to cold, and it would be very bail
for the cause if I was to be laid up jiist at
the critical stage of the game.’ His host,
who was the soul of hospitality, immediately
answered: ‘So it would. So it would. Here,
put on this overcoat of nunc.’
“ ‘I couldn't think of it,” said the New
“ ‘But I insist you shall,’ urged the host.
‘I have another one upstairs. Mother, got
me my last year’s ulster.’ The ulster was
fished out of a closet, and donned by the
man of the bouse, while the new Benjamin
was forcedi?) on the young orator. Now it
happened that the latter gentleman was to
take a train at 10 o’clock for a point some
thirty miles distant. He contrived to have
another speaker precede him. He began
to speak about 8:45 o'clock, and. as lie
is a very entertaining and forcible
speaker, so soon had his audience
spell-bound or enthusiastic as he willed.
He managed to time his perorations so
that amid the wildest applause he had bare
ly time to jump into a wagon and catch his
train. In the burry of departure he forgot
to send back the overcoat, but its owner
thought nothing of the omission. In a few
days he wrote for it, butreceved no answer.
Then he wrote again, but the second epistle
fared no better than the first. Meantime,
the orator had returned to Portland, where
he had a tailor alter the coat so that it fit
him perfectly. A few days before the elec
tion a friend of the owner called on him with
a peremptory order for Iho garment. ‘Mr.
Brown,’ guessed the Ciceronian, ‘is a good
“ ‘Yes, sir!’
“ ‘ls devoted to the cause A
“ ‘Yes, .sir.’
“ ‘Would make sacrifices for it?’
“ ‘Well, yes, certainly.’
“ ‘Very good, then, responded the orator.
‘Give him my compliments, and tell him
that the Democrat who sacrifices overcoats
to the cause in the hour of its need shall
have postoffices in the day of the party’s
prosperity.’ “This gentleman,” concluded
Mr. Ecclessine, “lias’madefame and fortune
helping to prosecute thieves.”

A MINING EXPERT’S STORY.
How Three Young Corniehmen Found
a Big Fort,une.
From th* Ft. Lovi* Globe- Dfinorrnt.
A Cornisliman is usually content to let
someone else discover the mine, own and
operate it, he being satisfied with the
wages ho can get for sinking the shaft or
following the knife-blade vein. Their
judgment on ore or quartz is nearly invalu
ably correct, and the mine owner seldom
continues to persevere after receiving
a suggestion from them that it is of no
The only deviation from these character
istics that Mr. Best could recall was ill the
case of three young men from Cornwall
who came out several years ago with am
bition and emergy enough to make several
fortunes. They prospected considerably in
various portions of the Btate without suc
cess, and finally went to work for Mr. Best
in one of his Gilpin county mines. Like all
Cornishmen they were good miners, worked
hard and saved money. After a little
while, however, they quit working in the
mines and went to prospecting again. The
life of a prospector was not ft very encour
aging one, but the three brothers seemed
never to grow weary of it, keeping up their
spirits with the hope of some time finding a
fortune. They would bring in samples oc
casionally that would assay well, but noth
ing more would be heard of the discovery.
One day they came in after a couple of
weeks absence and made inquiries about the
ownerships of an abandoned shaft three
miles northwest of Central City. They
found the owner, and ho was willing to sell
or lease the property on shares, lie had
sunk more money in it than he could afford
to, and had reluctantly concluded that the
best thing to do was to dispose of it or leave
it alone. He could not sell a worthless
mine, and so the property was abandoned.
In the West thess worthless properties are
called “holes in the ground,” and they
abound in mining countries. The brothers
had been down in the abandoned shaft and
through its stopes and drifts. They had
sunk the shaft a few feet deeper and sud
denly struck flic vein the owner had long
sought hut never found. It was covered up
and the shaft partially Hooded by the melt
ing snows. The proposition to lease was
accepted, the owner to have 25 per cent, of
the output and the brothel's 75. They had
no money to purchase machinery, and so the
old-fashioned windlass was put up and a
bucket made out of a half barrel. With this
they slow ly emptied the shaft of water, and
after two weeks steady work were able to
go down and open the vein. It proved rich
beyond all expectation, and the first month
they took out 8100,000 without assistance.
The strike was soon known ail over that
section, and they had plenty of opportuni
ties to stdl their lease. Knowing that all
mines must “cap” sooner or later, they con
cluded to take no risks and disposed of
their lease interest for $225,000, leaving
them just SIOO,OOO each. When the sale
was consummated three hßppier brothers
were never seen. They made no more at
tempts at mining, but soon started for their
old home in Cornwall. The mine was
worked by the new company,but the amount
paid for it was never realized. It is idle
KATE MURPHY’S SAD END.
Closely Connected to a Royal Family,
Reared in Luxury and Dying in
Louisville, Nov. 10.—A remarkable ca
reer was closed with the death yesterday of
Mrs. Kate Murphy Anderson. Born of
parents closely connected to a royal family,
reared in luxury, taught by masters, and
graduated from one of the great academies
of Europe with high honors, a young lady
full ot promise and the prospect of a bright
future, married to wealth, and at last an
old woman, dead in a scantilj - furnished,
dark and gloomy room, almost a pauper.
Life would have" gone out and no one near
to hear these words whispered with the last
breath, “Ail is over now,” but for the pres
ence of one bv chance.
Kate Murphy was born in Dublin, Ire
land, on Nov. 8, 1835—one of two daughters
of Sir John Murphy, who christened bis
child after an unmarried sister much older
than himself. A little later the sister Kate
married Martin MeCalie, and to them was
born an only daughter, who became the
wife of Joseph Fisher, of New York city.
Of two daughters of Fisher one became the
< lountess Dorauiou, and the other Counteas
Gherardesi, the husband of the latter being
a descendant of Dantes, t'goline, the other
sister of Murphy, became the wife of John
Ryan, once a prominent leather merchant
of Louisville. In 1873 Murphy separated
from liis wife, but not until his daughter
hail finished school. 110 remained in the
country, his wife and'two daughters coming
to America, where both the girls were soon
married, Kate becoming the wife of a
wealthy citizen of New Orleans in July,
1854. Anderson diod in August, 1857.
possessed of quite ail estate, leaving a young
widow and little daughter. The child was
burned to death while the mother was at
church, about two months after the husband
anil father died. Remaining in Now
Orleans until after the war, she came to
Louisville, and found a home with her
uncle, John Ryan. At his death in 1882 she
was left alon and a little later purchased
a homo on Walnut street, near First, where
she lived until her death. During the past
few years she has been addicted to drinking
to excess, but when on a spree always
closeted herself in her room. The habit so
fastened itself upon her that her property
went from her, and then followed a. mort
gage on the home, which, only a few days
ago, was foreclosed, and notice to vacate
the premises given. Although only 52 years
old, she had the appearance of one much
older. She was an excellent linguist, speak
ing fluently English, French, German and
One evening, soon after my arrival in
Eastern Assam, and while the five elephants
were being fed opposite the bungalow, I ob
served a young and lately-caught, one step
up to a bamboo fence and quietly pulled up
one of the stakes. Placing it under hi* foot,
it broke off a piece with its trunk, and, after
lifting itto its mouth, threw it away. It re
peated this twiee or thrice, and then drew
another stake. Reeing that the bamboo was
old and dry, I asked the reason of this, and
was told to wait and see what the elephant
At last it seemed to get a piece that suited
it, and holding it in the trunk linnly, and
stepping the left fore-leg well forward, it
passed the piece of bamboo under the arm
pit, so to speak, and began to scratch with
My surprise reached its climax when I
saw a large eleplwnt-lecch fall to the ground,
quite six inches long and thick as one’s fin
ger, and which, from its positson, could not
bo easily detached with out the scraper,
which was deliberately made by the ele
phant. 1 subsequently found that this was
a common occurrence. Such scrapers are
used by every elephant daily.
On another occasion, when traveling at a
time of the year when the largo flies are so
tormenting to an elephant, I noticed that,
the one I rode had no fan wisp to beat them
off w ith. The driver, at my order, slack
ened pace and allowed her togo to the side
of the road, when for some moments she
moved aloug, rummaging the smaller jun
gleon the banks. At last she came to a
cluster of young shoots well branched, and
after feeling among them and selecting one,
raised her trunk and neatly stripped down
the stem, taking off all the lower branches
and leaving a fine bunch on top. Hhe de
liberately cleaned it down several times
and, then, luving hold at the lower end,
broke off a beautiful fan or switch about
five feet long, handle included. With this
she kept the flies at bay, flapping them off
ou each side.
Hay what we may. these are both really
bona fide implements, each intelligently
made for a definite purpose.
