Few men arrive at so prominent a positlen
In public life as that of Daniel Manning,
with so little In their upward course that Is
noteworthy, to mark the successive stages
ot progress. There Is hardly an Incident In

point In the direction of his on the whole te
Mr. Manning was the son of an Albany
baker, who half a century ago lived in a
modest dwelling, still standing, nearly op
posite the lata secretary's flue mansion, two
blocks west of the state capitol.
The famljy was In plain circumstances
when the father died, leaving three sons and
a daughter to be cared for by their mother.
Of thesa John B. Manning, a wealthy oltl-
ren ot Buffalo and at one time mayor of
that city, and Maria, the daughter, sur
vive. Daniel, the second son in age, was
born on Aug. 10, 183b When his father
died be was 0 years old. At this early age
1k became connected with the newspa
per tfflce in which he served In every 8 tage
of promotion Irom a route carrier to presl-
dent of its corporation. His first service
was with the old Albany Atlas, which af
terward became The Atlas and Argus, and
Idler tho widely known Albany Argus.
From errand boy he became an apprentice In
the composing and job rooms, and by the
time bo was master or the mechanical de-
partnient of the estabbshment he was found
to bo as apt at getting and preparing news
f i-r the paper as he was at setting in types
what others nod prepared, llo baa an ex
cellent faculty for making acquaint
ances that could contribute something to
pclltlcal nows, with which tho papers
cf that day abounded to the exclusion of
more ceneral matters. Thurlow Weed went
to Aib.my and established The Journal about
the timo Daniel Manning was born. When
the latter grew to the estate of usefulness as
a reporter and editor. The Journal and The
Argus were ill the hottest part of their life
long partisan controversies, Young Man
ning became imbued with the spirit of the
political strife of the times. From loyalty
to the Democratlo sida he became an enthu
siastic partisan, and when he was given the
legislature as bis field of news opera
tions, he soon began to bo felt as c
young man whoso acquaintance it
was worth the politician' while to culti
vate. His growth in business connected
with the paper was under the guiuance of
Calvin Comstock. one of the proprietors of
The Argus, while the political branch of his
development was under the tutelage of
i William Uussldy, the astute editorial poli
tician who long dominated The Argus at the
state capital. In 1865, then 31 years old, he
btcarae associate editor with Mr. Casshly,
and not long aiterwartl he succeeded to Mr,
Comstocit's proprietary interest. Mr. Cos-
tidy's death 111 1873 left Mr. Manning at the
head i f the newspaper concern, to be re
sponsible for its financial prosperity and ita
political course. How well be discharged
these duties is shown by the business success
ot the paper.
Two years after the Tweed ring was dis
rupted he advanced to tho front in Albany.
Mr. Casaidy died, and he became the editor
and manager of the Argus.
In 187(1 Mr. Manning U-cama a member of
the Democratic state committee. Hs bnd
supported Governor Tilden for the nominal
tion for president, and his intimate knowl
edge ef the governor's plans made him one
ot tke most useful men on the committee
during tho campaign ot 187U. In 1S79 he
was made secretary of the state committee.

From 1881 till 1885 he was chairman of the
state committee and had undisputed control
of the organization. When he was asked by
Albany bankers to be tneir guest at a dlnnei
In honor of his appointment as socretary ol
tuo treasury, ne declined, saying: "1 assure
you that the happiness afforded Is all th
greater because 1 quite realize that the of
fices you buder are genuine and hearty,"
After Mr. Cleveland was elected president.
Mr. Manning expressed a sincere di-siro to
retire from political activity. Two weeks
after the election be saids "The campaign
was long and hard fought. I desire to be re
leased from responsibility." Being asked with
reference to the prevailing gossip about his
going into tho cabinet, he replied: "Bucli
talk Is natural with people who do uot
understand how a man can bo acilvelna
succesiful campaign, as I have been for the
past few months, without expecting reward
in Ui. way of an office. I have no desire
for public office. My means are ample for
the support of my family, my business is
Bumclent to aiaorD my time as closely as 1
desire to have It absorbed, and 1 shall be ecu
tuted to remain at my desk here in the
bant, and glide through Ufo as

offlw, or deor Into politics, I assure you
niy desire Is to keep out ot the former
and get out of the latter." With refer
Mice to the part b took in nominating
Mr. Cleveland, h saldt "My notion at
Chicago was guided by cold judgment
Thera was not a particle ot sentiment in it.
as there might have been If I had been urging
Mr. Tilden's nomination. I was careful not
to say to delegates from other states that we
could carry New York for Cleveland. I only
said that If we could not carry It for him, I
did not know with whom we could carry It."
Mr. Manning was first married to Miss
Mary -Little. In 1853. She died In 188:3,
leaving two sons, James Hilton Manning,
who Is the managing editor ot The Argus,
und Frederick Clinton Manning, who Is un
Active Toung business man In Albany.
These young men Inherit in no degree what
ever their fatberv political estate, inev
Jiavo no tasla nor inclination for publicity
beyond what la necessary for their business.
They are highly esteemed and popular, tho
more so because they never sought personal
Advantage from their father's prominence
In his party. When Mr. Alanulng accepted

Caudkn, N. J Doc. 21. In the district
court yesterday David Conroy, a saloon
keeper of Rockhill, Conn., brought suit
against Ooorge Purnell, a mill haud, who
recently removed to Camden from Rockhill,
for $11.15, being a bill contracted at Cou
roy's uloon In the latter part of 1684. Part
of the bill is for drinks and part for money
loaned at tho gaming table. The New Jersey
law does not recognize the validity of gam
bling debts, and so the judge, would have
dismissed the case. Conroy claimed, bow-
ever, that Connecticut recognized the valid
ity of such debts, and so the court put off
the case, to allow (Jonroy to prove the case,

about Him. This groat teacher, with whose
famo the land was now tinging, was not

he had beheaded, who was risen from the
dead, and who therefore had power to do
theso great works. Now this declaration of

John was an uptight and holy man, and that
truth and right were on his side. Yet ho
knew that to please an adulterous woman ho
had shamefully put him to death. Is It a
wonder ho could not rest! If such a man as
Herod could hold tho doctrine of the resur
rection, its placo in the popular mind must
liavo been well assured. At least it must
have been widely discussed, as Indeed tho
mere existence of tho Sadducoes, who denied
tho doctrine, proves it to have been.
V, 3-5. Here lies tho secret of Herod's
great disquiet And tho links in the chain
of events are these: Herod had repudiated
bis own lawful wife and was living In adult
ery with the wife of his brother Philip. John
had fearlessly rebuked him for his great sin,
and, of course, had incurred the bitter en
mity of Horodlos, From that day he was a
doomed man, and nothing but fear of the
people restrained Herod from putting him to
What could John dot Just what ho did.
Ho must bo "clear In bis great office," and
rebuke the offender. Publicly rebuke him.
The sin was before the people and so must
its condemnation be. At all hazards he must
be true to his Lord's words. And so must
tho minister of Jesus now. He must not only
"exhort," but he must "roprove and rebuke."
and that too "with all authority."
And how ready was llerod's response, "lie
would have killed John." No thought of
breaking off his sin by righteousness or his
transgression by turning to tbe Lord. John
was the transgressor here. And so the burn
ing and shiuing light in Israel must be put
out and the greatest of the prophets of the
Lord borne to a bloody death in order that
an adulterous woman might be gratified in
Yet all through John was stronger than ho
thought Herod feared John. He knew he
was a prophet, and the sanctities of a spot
less character shut him m on every side.
V. 0, 7. The "birthday," here, probably
means the anniversary of his accession to
power. It was usual for kings to observe
this day with great pomp as Herod doubt
less did on this occasion. This "daughter ot
Herodlas" was Salome, her daughter by her
first husband, ttbe must have partaken of
ber mother's character, for no modest female
would have made such an exhibition ot her
self before such an assembly. Knowing him
as she did, was this all planned by Herodlas,
to bring about her long plotted rovenge on
John! Inflamed by wlno, by music, by tbe
brilliant surroundings of tho raist and the
dancing girl, the king bound himself with an
oath to give her whatsoever she desired

sired. And it was well improved, too; for,
instructed by her mother, she demanded
"tho bead of John the Baptist" What a re-
oucst for a young girl to make. What Sa
tanic hate must have rankled In the heart
that prompted it. What aptitude in hateful
things in the lips that uttered it No doubt
Herod was beyond measure surprised. Even
be bail not expected it But in tho madness
of his folly be hod bound himself by an oath
which ho' thought ho could not break, and
the presence ot those Invited guests forbade
him to do oven if be could. And so the com
mand was given; John was beheaded and his
head presented to tho damsel, who In turn
presented it to her mother. Tho whole ghast
ly business Is done, and John lies headless in
V. 12. Tho nowswns not long in spreading.
His disciples heard of It, and with reverent
and affectionate sorrow took up his body and
burled It, and "went and told Jesus." Now,
there is something very beautiful In this.
Their former jealousy of Jesus, for John's
sake, weans to have died away; and they told
him ot tho danger that might reach even to
him. Of course they know not tho secret tie
that bound them together. They know not
that as it fared with John so It would with
him. whoso coming John heralded. They
knew not that John's bloody death In bis
prison was but the index finger pointing to
Jesus on tho cross. Still they went and told
1. The power of a guilty conscience. Is
this a foretaste of future retribution? Herod
could not get away from the prosonce ct
