Caggs, from a secure retreat behind Blunkers's right arm, declined to let the siren's song tempt him forth. Finally Peter's pounding brought a degree of quiet again. "Misther Chairman," said Dennis. "Mr. Moriarty," said Peter. "Misther Chairman. Oi'll not take the valuable time av this meetin' to speak av dirty, cowardly, black-hearted, treacherous snakes, wid souls blacker than the divil's own "

It's my delight to nominate as delegates to the State convention, the Honorable Misther Schlurger, our distinguished representative in the Assembly, the Honorable Misther Kennedy, our noble Police-commissioner, an' Misther Caggs, whom it would be insult for me to praise in this company." "Second the motion," said some one. "Mr. Chairman," shouted a man. "That's Caggs," said the enrolling officer.

"Shure, the b'ys are as pleased and kindly this mornin' as can be. It's a fight like that makes them yieldin' an' friendly. Nothin' but a little head-punchin' could make them in a sweeter mood, an' we'd a given them that if little Caggs had had any sense in him." "You mean Gallagher and Blunkers and the rest of them?" "Av course. That little time last night didn't mean much.

Moriarty has just paid so glowing a tribute, as delegates to the State convention." "Second the " shouted some one, but the rest was drowned by another storm which swept through the room. Even above the tumult, Peter could hear Dennis challenging and beseeching Mr. Caggs to come "outside an' settle it like gentlemen."

I was obliged to seem contented with his Reason, and waited the Return of this Party, which in about ten Days after, came back, laden with Provisions, Kitchen Furniture and Bedding; but the most acceptable part of their Booty, was Two small Caggs of Powder, of Eight Pound Weight each, and near Two Hundred of Lead.

"Misther Stirling," he said, his face expanding into the broadest of grins, "let me salute the delegate to the State convention." "Look here, Dennis," said Peter, "you know you had no business to spring that on me." "Ah, sir! Shure, when that dirty little spalpeen av a Caggs went back on us so, what could Oi do?

"Mr. Caggs," said Peter. "Mr. Chairman," said Caggs. "I must decline the honor offered me from such a source." "What?" shrieked Dennis, amazement and rage contesting for first place in voice and expression. "Mr. Chairman," said Dummer. "Mr. Dummer," said Peter. "I have the honor to nominate the Honorable Justice Gallagher, Mr. Peter Sweeney, and Mr. Caggs, to whom Mr.

Who would have been driven out by St. Patrick, wid the rest av the reptiles, if he'd lived at that time. Oi only rise to widdraw the name av Caggs from the list Oi nominated for delegates to the state convention, an' to put in place av it that av a man who is as noble an' true, as some are false an' divilish. That of Misther Peter Stirling, God bless him!" Once more chaos came.

Caggs, Mr. Daggs, Mr. Boffin Yes, sir, that is right! Now there's no harm in that sort of thing it's only a bit of moral dignity, as Vincent says. It's no good acquiescing in being a humble average person we must do better than that! Most people believe in themselves in spite of abundant evidence to the contrary but it's better than disbelieving in yourself. That's abject, you know."
