He is a man who keeps in touch with state and national affairs, and his familiarity with legislative and other public business makes him peculiarly well fitted for the position to which his fellow partisans would elect him.

The origin of the fire is unknown: but little damage was done bv the blaze. The dangerous locality of the place drew many people to the scene in anticipation of witnessing a very destructive fire.
