In honor of John R. MacLean, long proprietor of the Cin– cinnati Enquirer and the Washington Post. MacLean was a frequent patron of the Bar in its older days. With him al– ways traveled his.J?dus dchates and lieutenant, McBride, a genial story-teller and general good fellow, who graced the Bar oftener than did his principal. MacLean was once owner of the old New York Morning Journal, buying it from Albert Pulitzer, brother of Joseph. He used to think he made a good deal by selling to William R. Hearst for a much higher figure than it cost him. Subsequent events re– vealed that Mr. Hearst had not made a bad bargain after all.
