Fcom the New Orleans Times-Demoorat. John Hay, Minister to England. Horaee Porter, Minister to Franco. James B. Angelí, Minister to Turkey. AHhough I am a Democrat, I yet take up my pen, To praise McKinley's wisdom in naming these tliree men For tlieir respective stations, our country s views to volee, For no one can deny that he was happy ia lus choice. For instance, take Great Britaln- we're needing asharpcuss To ciroumveut the man.v jobs John Buil puts up on lis : So McKInley ehose the proper man.sagaoious, wise and keeu, And Kugltsh statesmau soon will flnd that Huy's by 110 means green. Again, fair France, the happy land of frolic, fun and show. Must be quite tired by tlits time of claret and Bordeaux; And so Mc naturally thought 'twas a good tuing to arrange To let, the gallant Freuchmen have some Porter for achange. And os for Turkey- wel], since that Armenian row of late, It looksas if the Turks were naught but demons inoarnate; And 'mongst so inauy devüs, an Angelí, don't you sëe. Me thought would in a measure break the greiit monotouy.
