Major Z. K. Pangborn, the man who whipped (George) Dewey, is running for congress as a Republican at Jersey City, N.J.

The whipping took place when the future admiral was about 15 years old. Dewey headed an insurrection which had as its object the licking of the school teacher. Mr. Pangborn kept the hero of Manila at arms length and plied the hickory. Another boy who went to Dewey's assistance received a blow. When resistance ceased, the whipping stopped. It is alleged that in after years Dewey said to the Major "You made a man of me, but for that thrashing you gave me I should probably have been in state's prison before this".

Major Pangborn is is a native of Burlington, and a graduated of the University of Vermont. He has been engaged in the newspaper business in Jersey City many years.
