Excerpt from Life of Patrick A. Collins: With Some of His Most Notable Public Addresses

Russell was nominated unanimously, and he was elected at the polls in November.

During a committee recess some years ago, Mr. Collins was introduced to the Rev. A. A. Miner, D.D., against whose side of a mooted question he was acting as counsel. Dr. Miner was a Universalist minister, and one of the foremost advocates of prohibition in the state. Wherever he went he unremittingly assailed the demon Rum, and drew piteous pictures of the evils which it entailed upon humanity. Mr. Collins shook the doctor's hand warmly, and turning to the man who had given the introduction, he said: Dr. Miner would be a very worthy citizen, and a great power in the community if he would only leave rum alone. Dr. Miner joined heartily in the general laugh which the little sally drew from the group of listeners, and thus bore testi mony to his ability to appreciate a good thing even when. He was getting the worst of it.

On the occasion of President Roosevelt's first tour of New England in 1902, he was entertained informally by Governor Crane during a brief stay in Boston. Mr. Collins, who was then mayor of the city, agreed to attend a small dinner party in his honor at a leading hotel, although he was suffering keenly from rheumatism at the time. He left the dining hall early and proceeded to his room. After his guests had separated for the evening, the governor with his customary kindliness called upon Mr. Collins to inquire after his health and comfort. Incidentally he and the mayor discussed the occurrences of the evening. What do you think of the President, Mr. Mayor, said the governor.
