The cry of '"Bryan and Mil (hell"  which has been beard in many sections, may be heard in others.  Now that the Federation of Labor  and the United Mine Workers of  America/ have decided to go imlo pol  itics 'to bring* about reforms thai  both organizations believe aic due  organized labor they will look ovei  their, own ranks first to pick out,  the available - t imber for public  office.  if organized labor is' determined lo  capture the chau oi lhe presiding  ollicer of tho Senate, Uieroby placing  a mat on the threshold of tho White  House, why should not this iiuyn be  John Mitchell? Indeed he seems to  be the logical candidate of-labor.     ,  No labor leader is more favorable  known to the country than Mitchell  and      [his      companion*    declare    lie  v *  .would be as strong'. with the people outside the union ranks as a-  inong those within. 'Although .if seem-*  to bo a strange statement, Mitchells  story justifies' it. Ho 1ms consistently fought the. Socialistic movement and in three hationa.l conventions of'miners'-it was bis influence  that prevented the organization  from        wavering, and        partly  committing itself, to socialism. The  Socialists 'regard Mitchell as their  arch enemy and have sent thoii'.delo  gates to the ��������� convention time and  time again to counteract liis inll-  uenco. But this has always failed.  Mitchell is also knorwri as a. Conservative. He had been in lhe limelight many years, but this has not  turned his head. He has kept on  making friends and .of. course a few  enemies and some of the latter are  in h s own organi/atfon. Should Mitchell become a vice-presidential possibility he would be the target for  the National Association of Manufacturers and all its allied bodies.

The    man is a stranger iri  the city,  being a sailor from one of  the ships  winch has, been loading in  Nanaimo,  and tlie aldermen  were of  the opinion that it was not up     to  thorn to fay_ his hospital expenses:1  In order to  ascertain if this   would  be     necessary,    Constable Callendar  telephoned  to  Nanaimo stating    the  case, and as';ing infoiinta^ion.

However, the"  proper place to send thei,.man"was to  tlie marine hospital in Victoria. Accordingly, A Id.. Patterson mo-ved tha*  the city consfcafble be instructed    to  superintend the sick man's   removal,  and the expenses incurred charged up  to the ship  which thc man left.  lAld. .Campbell brought up tlie cjiues-  tion    of    drainage.     ,He    wanted-a  drain    put  in i r"bn First    Avenue to  take away  the 'sewerage which is issuing from   the Europe hotel.      The  Alderman stated that >it was       dis-  graceiJn its present condition, and hei  wanted to see something done    Aid.  Patterson  did  not know  what could  be done about it.     If the city    put  in a drain there they should put one  in   on    'Rojfcjcrts street  leading -fiom  the Mayor's place down to    Blair <&  Adam's.   "Well," replied , Aid.

JOINS BRIDE  AFTER 42 YEARS  Atlanta, Ga., July 30.���������After an  absence of forty-two ycars, three  of which were spent in the service  of the Confederate army and the  subsocpM^nt thirty-nine in a Northern  Penitentiary-, where he was under a  life   sentence   for     murder,   Anderson  Pittman, sixty-five years of age, has  relumed to Georgia to find his wife  the widow of another man. It is thc  pathetic story of a second EnocJi Ar-  den.  She waited nnd waited for him  from whom she parted as a young  bride and when she did not return  after   she  heard   that  he    was  killed  mourned him as dead. With the report of his death the letters which  had been coming to her regularly  ceased and this confirmed her fears.  , After her period of mourning she  was won by a sturdy mountaineer,  one White Collin. They were happy  together  for  a   long  time,   until     he  was slain by tho moonshiners of his  district because they believed he  had informed on tham, to thc revenue  officers. She then removed to Carter}  ���������ill������.  Pittman states that ,as he was returning bvmo after tho close of  the war he met a Northern officer  with whom he got into a quarrel,  and whom ho killed. He was tried,  convicted and sentenced to serve a  life term in the. federal prison and  was pardvned only 'last week. Tho  couple are now living in Cartersvillo  on their interrupted honeymoon, brid  in tho battle of   Chicl.amagua,     she ged   by a lapse of two score years.

AlcKINNELLKY  That New York citv  is' one of  tho  1   j  larpjest consirmcis of mnskiats as  food is not lnown, to. most patrons  of i'he game dealers. Chicago,  whicli is its only1 -rival as eaters' of  muskrats, finds room Ior countless  barrels of "swamp rabbit" caught  along tire famous marshes of Lake  Michigan.  New York's muskrats- come frorn^  Chesapeake bay, for the most part.  The trade is a large one. There arc  shipping points on tho Inay fidp-i  which 80,000 muskrats pelts aic sent  yearly to lui dcaleis, The carcasses^  of two-thirds of these animals are  baneled and sent ;by steamer to Baltimore commission merchants. '  A .bariel holds^about 200 muskrat  carcasses. They are woith'to 'tho  shipper from $5 to $10 a bariel;  and the trappers find thait rt pajs to  sa\e the meat. An. ordinary* season on an 80-acre -marsh will bung  from LOOO io-'2,000 pelts worth froraj  V250 to $500. If to this is added  the "bring" of fiom $25 to $60 for  the meat, a considerable sum is add.  ed to th������',traupers'. .income. A thousand rats a season is a small catch  for a professional trappci Melt  Robbins, of Blackwatcr, on d>hc eastern shore'of Maryland, a\eia,ges 200  lats a day during the season on his  marshes. He hires from three to  five men to tpnid his .snares ^nd'/tialU  and shoot over his decojs. iLast year  he cleared more than .1>3,000. He ships'  a barrel of muskrats a day to Bal-  timoie by the steamers.  The meat of' the' musluat its vciy  dark. Its flavor is as delicate as  a rabbit's. During the trapping s������a-  ton, miiakiat flesh is on sale in all  ,the butcher shops along the eastern  shore, especially at .Caimhrhlge, Cirs-  held, and other. ';water,totwns." The  butchers buy it from the' Uappeis,  paying from two to four cents pel  carcass. The rats are then sold to  town reople at the unifLim price oi  four for a quarter.  In. New York the knowing patrons  of restaurants "search down the line  of "game in season" when seeding  muskrats. When they come to  swamp rabbit, or black s(.-uiuel, or  Southern labbit, they know what to  cxpoc't. It is apt to lie just plain  muskiat, shipped fiom Baltimore.  It would bo interesting to read  lestaurant lists in New York, if they  weie reused according to common  nomenclature. It would .be found  that much that pasges,for "game" is  really humWe muskrats and similiar  animals served to suit thc taste of  those who have never seen a musk-  rat on its native grass. A sportsman who frequents the fields as well  as the club rooms -occasionally! finds-  muskrats on the menus -of ' special  dinners. 'Many a housekeeper in New  York, ordering grey squirrels or la'r-  bits ."dressed," unwittingly serves at  her taiblc Chesapeake bay muskrats.  There aie,   of course,' nuniiy  people  who know*    muskrats and eat - them  regularly.     In   some  of    the    foreign  .,, quarters mnskiats are sold for   what  I i they are.    Italians buy them in huge  numbers, and thc lnjrc-dicnls of sundry-Chinc&e restaurant dishes include  the  dark me^t ;o[ .-tlie-,water-, rpdenl,  disguised pnlu by   its  Chinese name.  New York.
