Michael Ryan is, as his name implies, a eon of the owld sod, and he is something some-thing more, for Michael is a pronounced Fenian, and is ready to take a side nwipe at Jchn Bull whenever opportunity opportun-ity should arise, says the Victor (Colo.) Times. Michael believes that now is the acepted time and his heart yearns for just one good crack at the enemy of the green little isle. Mr. Ryan is not as young as he once was and he might not make a pretty figure on dresva parade, but he is an Irishman born and raised, and, so far as England is concerned, his fighting qualities will assay sixteen ounces to the pound avordupois. Michael is a member of the Clan-na-Gael and he says that the order ought to put an army of at least 200000 men into the field against the hated Briton, and he is ready to give his services either in Canada. South Africa or Colorado Colo-rado Springs, wherever the other 199,999 members of the order may elect to shed British gore. Michael is patriotic and earnest and is ready to fight for Frenchmen. Dutchmen or any other kind cf men, just so the fighting would be against the English. Michael has informed the Times upon this point through a visit personally conducted, and he has. left his name at this office a a possiWe Boer recruit, but as the recruiting officer of the Times has been taking a vacation since the Irish volunteers' vol-unteers' were recruited in Victor for the Spanish war, we are unable to accommodate accom-modate him.
