"" Goes it Alone
Notes.
Charles Frederick Crisp, the nominee of
the Democratic caucus for speaker of the
Fifty-second congress, resides at Ameri-
cus, Ga. The new
speaker is the son
of an English im
migrant, and was
born ou Jan. 29,
1815. in Sheffield,
Eng., during a
visit, of his parents
to their former
'ini eorSia tne same
fll j cur, huu tne son
vtts suusequeniiy
eductted in the
public bchools of
C. F. cniSP. Macon and Savan
na. At the age of sixteen he enlisted in
the Confederate army and served until
May, lS&i, as a lieutenant in Company K,
Tenth Virginia infantry. when be was cap
tured and bent to Fort Delaware. At the
close of the war he returned to Georgia,
studied law and was admitted to the bar in
186G. In 1872 he was appointed solicitor
general for the southwestern judicial cir
cuit, and was reappointed in 1873 for a
term or ioar years, removing irotn Jilla
ville to Americas in the same year. In
1877 he was promoted to the judgeship of
the circuit and served until September,
lSS2,wlien he resigned to accept the Demo
cratic nomination for the Forty-eighth con
gress. He has been re-elected to euch suc
ceeding congress. The choice of Mr. Crisp
for speaker is generally regarded as a
triumph of the Hill-Gorman wing of the
partv, as opposed to the Cleveland-Carlisle
tariff reformers.
THE SPEAKERSHIP.
Washington, Dec 7. The day opened
without any apparent chance in the
speakership contest, and there wus a gen
eral impression, on account of the brief
time between tlio opening of the caucus
aud'the meeting of the house, that no
choice would be possible this morning.
The five candidates ere each quite confi
dent of success, aud their followers seem
ed imbued with the same confidence and
persistency which have been characteristic
features of the contest. A rumor was cur
rent early this morning that Hatch's five
devoted followers had become convinced
of the hopelessness of the fight and had
resolved to desert the Missouri candidate
aud each seek his second choice, but Mr.
Hatch indignantly denied that there was
anylikelihood 'of such an occurrance. The
same report had it that, two of the five
would go to Crisp and that two would go
to Mills, leaving one man in the doubtful
list, but claimed bv all four of the other
candidates. Mr. Tarsney was seen, and,
while giving no expression as to his sec
ond choice, denieu that there was any
prospect of an immediate scattering of
Mr. Hatch's supporters.
Mr. McMiliin's 19 supporters met
for a few minutes at that gentleman's
headquarters a short time before the hour
for the meeting of the caucus and reaflirm
ed their unwavering support to the can
didacy of the gentleman from Tennessee.
Mr. Springer was quite as buoyant as
ever, and expressed the conviction that
tiie speakership contest would find a solu
tion after many weary hours of balloting
tonight.
Mr. Crisp asked to be excused from any
expression, farther thnn that his ranks
were unbroken and he expected to show
increased strength at the forenoon session.
Mr. Bynum, Mr. Mills' spokesman, said
that Mr. Mills would certainly be telected

members were that he expected to come
over to the Texas candidate or how many
ballots would be required to prove the
truth of his prediction.
THE CAT7CD3.
The caucus resumed its session prompt
ly at 10 o'clock this morning, and, without
any preliminary proceedings, the secretary
began to call the roll . The roll disclosed
the presence of. 212 members, but others
were constantly arriving. The eighteenth
ballot wus then taken.
Eighteenth ballot Criso 91, Mill 90,
McMillin 19, Springer 17, Hatch 5, Stev
ens 1.
Nineteenth billot Crisp 94, Mills 91,
Springer 17, McMillin 19, Hatch 5, Stev
ens 1.
Mr. Terry of Arkansas, an absentee,
came in and voted for Mr. Mills. The
caucus then adjourned until 2 o'clock
p. m.
A few minutes before the reassembling
of the caucus this afternoon, Mr. Cable of
Illinois sought Mr Springer mid notified
that gentleman that he ban decided to
abandon him and to vote for Mr. Mills,
sometime during the afternoon.
"In my opinion," said Mr. Cable, "your
cause is now a hopeless one, and I think
that the interest of tho Democratic party
demand the election of Mr. Mills as
against any other candidate except your
self." Immediately the news of Mr. Cable's an
nouncement spread through the lobbies,
and it wa3 at once siezed upon as an indi
cation of the dissolution of the Springer
forces. The announcement of Mr. New
berry a few moments later, that he, too.
would vote for Mr. Mills as second choice
caused further excitement.
Mr. Stewart of Illinois, was indignant
at what he denounced as tho trcjachery of
his colleagues in deserting Mr. springer's
candidacy ou Saturday and further break
ing into his support today, and announced
that he would never, under any circum
stances, support Mr. Mills. "My vote will
go whereever Mr, Springer wants it to go
when the break-up come.," saidl he. "ex
cept that it will never go to tha candi
date who profited by this conspiracy."
This announcement was as ai thunder
clap to the managers of Mr. Mills, as the
Texas candidate has all nlonu counted
upon the solid support or Springer's Iln
nois colleagues whenever that gentleman
was out of the race.
When the caucus reassembled at 2
o'clock this afternoon the twentieth ballot
was taken without delxy.
Twentieth ballot Crisp 92. Mills 90,
Springer 17, McMillin 17, Sjtevens 1,
Hatch 5.
Twenty-first ballot Crisp 94, .Mills 91,
McMillin 19, Spriuger, 17, Jllatch &,
Stevens 1.
The twenty-second ballot was destined to
mark the first significant clmugo of the
day. Messrs. Cable and Newberry aban
doned Spriuger and voted forMillss. Tars
ney of Missouri, who had steadily support
ed Hatch up to this time, now left the
Missouri candidate aud voted; for Crisp.
These were tha only changes.
Twenty-second ballot Crisp 95, Mills 93,
McMilliu 19, Springer lo, Haich i,
Stevens 1.
During the succeeding ballot tho excite
ment was intense, as it w s Confidently
expected that the changes already made
would provoke others. The expectation
was promptly realized. Mr. Shively of
Indiana had served notice on Cable and
Newberry that whenever they deserted
Springer for Mills he and his friends
would offset this by voting for Crisp.
This threat was carried out by Shively aud
Stout of Michigan, changing to Crisp. Im
mediately the Mills managers drew upon
his latent strength to counteract this gaiu,
and Cable aud Dearmout of Missouri lett
Hatch and voted for Mills.
Immediately there was tho wildest ex
citement. Mr. ditchings and others
rushed from the hall and into the head
quarters of Hatch. There was a brief con
versation and Mr. Caichmgs reappeared,
followed by Mr. Hatch. "Hatch is going
to withdraw!" "Hatch is to go to Crispl"
were the simultaneous cries from u hun
dred throats. The spectators were not
mistaken; for tho entrance of Hatch into
the caucus could have but one meaning.
The gentleman from Missouri cast his
vote for Crisp, aud Messrs. Byrnes and
Wilson of his state delegation followed
bis lead and also voted for the Georgia
candidate. Tbu gave Crisp a lead of five
votes.
Twenty-third ballot-Crisp 100, Mills 95,
McMillin 19, Springer 13, Stevens I.
Immediately after lue ballot Messrs.
Crisp and Hatch met accidentally in the
lobby in the rear of tho house. Instantly
the Georgian grasped the hand of his lata
opponent, and, with a beaming face,
thanked him warmiy for his support.
Twenty-fourth ballot CrisplOl.Milla 95,
McMillin 19, bpringer 12, Stevetu 1
The excitement at this time was at fever
heat; but it received a check by the sud
den reflection that during all the changes
Mr. .McMillin had held bis own, nnd ttiat
should even Mr. Springer's entim follow
ing go either to Mr. Crisp or to Mr Mills
it would be insuthcieut to defoat the other
leading rival so long as the supporters of
tho Tennessee caudidate stood firm. The
assault upon Mr. Springer's fortes ceased,
and terrific effort were made to break tho
McMillin ranks. The efforts were in vain,
as the twentv fifth, twenty-sixth and
twenty-seventh ballots failed to show any
change. Mr Dubarrow of the Springer
delegation then moved to take a recess
until 8 o'clock tonight, and the motion
unanimously prevailed.
The two hours interval between adjourn
ment and the reassembling of the caucus
was industriously utilized by the candi
date and their managers. Mesgrj. Spring
er and McMillin held a conference, with
the result that they decided to act to
gether, m tho termination of tho conte&t
should it become ineritable lhat either
Mr. Cru.p or Mr. Mills must bq elected.
At 7.3G o'clock p. m Mr. Sprnger and
his twelve sturdy supporters hId a secret
conference, at which Mr.topringrthukd
his followers for their lovul htipimrt and
stated his beiifef that cither Mr Cnp or I
.Ur. iltlis must be elected. u, gutle
men, have been loyal to me," tarn he
"yon have made sacrifices for me, and
now is my time to be loyal to yon. I am
prepared now to throw my influence and
vote for either of the candidates you gen
tlemen may de.sre to support a n tolt,
and I will d that with a positive under
standing with the ratio who mav be elected
that I want nothing, that I ak nothing
for mysfcif but that my frienda maot be
well treated."
After Mr. Springor'a withdrawal, the
delegation, after di?cunion, decided that
they would not avail tbemwU of Mr
Springer's generosity, but that ther would
leave nim free to Toteas he dUwiretl o the
decisive candidate, and that tby wen Id

sd before the sail cd b? gtta, Mr. McMR-
lin, who had been standing in the rear lob
by, entered the haU. Instantly there was
a burst of applause, as this was an indica
tion of the gentleman's withdrawal from
tho contest. Mr. McMillin obtained rec
ognition from the chairman, and. thank
ing his followers for their loyal and const-ant
support, formally withdraw from
the con'esc, amid applaue.

and his little band of followers holding
the b dance of power. It remained to the

pausa as Air. Springer proceeded to ids

each for his lovnl support. When Mr.
Springer asked recognition and prapired
to vote the suspense was more than pain
ful. "I desire," said Mr. Springer, "to ba
recorded as voting for Mr. Crisp."
Tho vote of Mr' Springer nominated Mr.
Crisp, anil tho applause which greeted tta
announcement was deafening. Messrs.
Busey andMewart of Illinois nnd Mr
Holtnanof lailiatia followed thi-ir Candi
date, and after the withdrawal of Mr.
Springer voted with him for Mr. Crisp.
Messrs. Snow of Illinois, Bryan of Nebras

On motion of J D. Brown of Indiana
the nomination of Mr. Crisp was mado
unanimous, and a commit too was ap
pointed to notify the successful candidate
of his selcctien nnd escort him to tho
chair. Applause aud cheers greeted Mr.
Crisp's appearance, and, after bowing his
acknowledgments, ho said, in ubtnnco:
