Washington papar , who I am euro has
no interest in misrepresenting him , It
la further said of Mr. Sherman that
hia ono great ambition now la to
create a colossal tortnue and take a
position as monetary king In Now
York financial circles. Ho does not
believe ho can secure the nomination
for president at the hands of
his party ; nolthor docs ho bc-

Sherman has resigned his scat in the

Very few people know that Mr. Sher

Sherman looked the situation cartful-
ly over. Qo waa pleased with the finan
cial condition of the now company , but
ho did not llko the outlook for
the business future. It was not a
good tlmo for him to begin any kind
of light , und so , after several days of
careful thought , Mr. Sherman de
clined. Ills declination made a com
promise uocosiary , us the principal
