It was an immense building and contained some 500 or More finished plows and several Hundred of the Conklin automatic cultivators which had been manufactured by the Clipper people. The company had already filed orders sufficient to take up what plows were on hands and half As Many More. This promised to be one of the most prosperous seasons in the history of the company and the loss by fire Falls w till heavy Force the company had no watchman and consequently the origin of the fire is unknown. It is supposed that the Blaze started on the West Side of the building. However the building was doomed before an alarm was sounded the roof of the building having commenced to fall in while the fourth Ward boys were on their Way to the Plant. The Central fire department responded promptly but the fire boys were not Abl to do More than save the foundry building v hich they did do after a heroic struggle.

The West Wall of the building collapsed while the fire was at it height. The area of the roof was very great and As it was comparatively Flat the immense weight of Snow probably had something to do with the fall of the Walls.

A former resident of Highland township Dies at Wilmington. Uncle Archie Worthington coloured for Many years a resident of Highland township died in Wilmington Friday afternoon aged about 75 years. The old Man was in Good circumstances and owned a farm in Highland township at the time of his death. We have just received a Call from a promising Young attorney in Cincinnati. He was asked about politics in the Queen City but disclaimed either being in politics or knowing anything about it. He also said that he was not authorized and did not speak for anyone other than himself. When asked How he came to be so Well posted in local and state politics he answered that for the general Good he believed it the duty of every Good citizen to know and take at least some Active part in that Branch of our social environment. He requested that his remarks should not be published. We half promised to respect his wishes but in his statements there Are some things connected with the gubernatorial scramble of this year of such interest to All that we deem it a justification of our breach of Confidence a for the general Good a that we betray the Confidence bestowed to the extent of quoting him in this one particular. He was asked a who do you think Hamilton county will favor for the nominee for governor a a i have not the least idea. The fight is not on hand and the politicians in Hamilton county Are not Given to making declarations until something definite is known. I will say this however that when Hamilton county does speak you will know exactly where she stands. It is not the habit in that county even in politics to Promise one thing and do a a what about mayor Caldwell will he be a candidate a a the mayor is an executive of High order he is quite Strong but whether he will be Hamilton county a Choice i am unable to say. I know the mayor quite Well think Well of him and Cin Cincinnati is justly proud of him. A to. Yes i know Keifer Bushnell Nevin Morey Grosvener Dawes Jones and All the rest of the men spoken of As possible candidates. And i know something Good of each of them. A Geo. K. Nash if he did Bui know his own Power and if the people laymen and politicians knew him As Well As i do he certainly would be the next governor of Ohio. He is such a Man As can be confidentially tied to first last and All the time. A but Havno to you a preference in All the candidates that have been named a a ooh yes i always have a preference but this i3 not the time to express it. You see i would be very sorry to do or say anything that might injure the chances of the Man of my without stopping for further question this Young lawyer went on to say a did you Ever visit the sixth congressional District in times of political activity if you have not you could not name the next governor of Ohio if it were left to the sixth congressional District to name the Man. He has been tendered a nomination for Congress time and time again but his loyalty to the Friend for whom he went to the convention would not permit him to even consider such a thing. I have seen delegates from counties other than his own coax him to allow them to vote for him. Then his own county implored him to but say the word. Every time would come the characteristic answer a if you Are my friends you will vote for the Man for whom we he was twice elected judge in Clermont county one of Ohio a democratic strongholds against the most popular Democrat in that county. A though born and raised in Clermont county the Birthplace of the illustrious Grant judge James b. Swing now resides and enjoys one of the most lucrative Law practices in the City of Cincinnati. He is a most remarkable Man. Everybody from the newsboy and Boot Black on the Street to the most honoured famous Learned and wealthy citizens in Southern and Central Ohio know him. And strange to say the opinion of All Are the same As to judge swing. But mention the name swing and you Are reminded of professor Suring of Chicago whose eloquence has stirred that Windy City As that of no other Man judge swing formerly of the circuit court of the United states and Many of the Learned of that now historic name. But when you know Jas. B. Swing you will say with me that he is the greatest american of them All. A i do not know that such a thought Ever entered his mind and i do not undertake to speak for anyone but myself. But if judge James b. Swing should come before the state convention for the nomination for governor the sixth congressional District would be solid for the Man they have Long sought to Honor. And i would be very much surprised if the first and second congressional districts did not out do the sixth District to the extent of the number of votes Hamilton county usually has solid in a state convention. And those from other parts of the state would be tumbling Over each other to get in out of the cold if they wanted to be on the winning in the South land or.
