Vare, William Scott, 1867-1934, American political leader, b. Philadelphia. He engaged in machine politics and became (1898) a member of the select council of Philadelphia. He was recorder of deeds (1902-12) and—with his brothers Edward and George—came to control the Republican machine in Philadelphia. He later succeeded Boies Penrose as political boss of Pennsylvania. Vare served (1912-27) in Congress but, elected (1926) to the U.S. Senate, was barred from his seat on the grounds of excessive campaign expenditures. He wrote My Forty Years in Politics (1933).
The Hamiltonstövare is a breed of dog, bred as a hunting hound. The breed was developed in Sweden by the founder of the Swedish Kennel Club, Count Adolf Hamilton. Its ancestry includes several German hounds as well as English Foxhounds and Harriers.

The breed is known by the white blaze on the head, down the neck, four white paws, and a white tail tip. He differs from an English Foxhound in that his frame is lighter.
