Both candidates for tlio Prosi
donoy this year havo had oxpori
enoo in Washington, says tho
Now York Sun. Jtfajor MoKinloy
was for moro thnu twclvo yeara a
mombor of tho Ilouso of Repre
sentatives from tho Canton dis
trict, and in tho last year of his
Bcrvico ho occupied, as chairman
of tho "Ways and Means Commit
tee, tho placo of Eepublicnn
loader. Mr. 13ryan achieved what
little national distinction ho had
boforo the mooting of tho Demo
cratic Convention in Chicago as a
member of tho IIoti6o of Ilepre
Bontatives for two tonus. Doth
candidates, thoroforo, havo had
provious Congressional experi
ence, something which has not
occurred in a Presidential contest
in tho United States for many
years. Mr. Cleveland, who was
for three campaigns tho Demo
cratic standard bearer, had no
Congressional, or indeed, any
legislative experience at tho time
of his first nomination in 1884.
Neither had General Hancock,
who was in the service of the
United States Government when
a candidate; nor Mr. Tilden.
Horatio Seymour, though ho
had held many offices, was uovor
a member of Congress,aiid neither
was General McClollau.
In order to find a Democratic
candidate for tho Presidency with
CongroFsional experience and ser
vice liefore liryan, it is necessary
to go back to Stephen A. Douglas,
who was for four years a member
of tho Houso of Representatives
and for fourteeu ears a member
of the United States Senate. On
tho Republican sido candidates
for the Presidency with previous
Congressional exporienco have
been moro numerous in recent
yoars. Fourteen years before his
election to tho Presidency Mr.
Lincoln represented tho Spring
field district of Illinois in Con
gress. General Grant had no
provious experienco in Congress,
but Andrew Johnson had repre
sented one of tho mountain dis
tricts of Touuesseo in Washing
ton for ton years. Ho had been
a United States Senator for five
yoars boforo his election to tho
Vice-Presidency. Hayes had been
a Congressman, elected in 1864,
twelve years before his installa
tion in oilicoos President. When
a candidate for Congress in ono
of tho districts of Cincinnati in
1872 ho was defeated. General
Garfield had sixteen years of con
secutivo service in tho Houso of
Representatives boforo his nomi
nation for tho Presidoucy, and he
was at the time Sonator-olcct
from Ohio. General Arthur had
no previous Congressional ex
perience). President Harrison
had sorved six years in tho United
States Sonate. Buchanan had
boon a mombor of Congress for
fivo terms in tho Houso and ono
in tho Seuato before his nomina
tion to tho Presidoucy. Pieico
Borved four yoars in Congross.
Millard Fillmore had been a
Congressman from tho Buffalo
district, and Polk was for fourteen
yoars a member of Congress and
twico chosen Speaker of tho
Houso bsforo his nomination for
tho Presidency. Tylor had boon
a mombor of Congress from Vir
ginia. Andrew Juckson was elect
ed for tho Houso of Representa
tives from TeunesBeo, and after
ward waB a United States Senator.
John Quincy AdamB was a mem
ber of UongrcBs boforehis election
to tho Presidency, and so was Jus.
Monroe of Virginia. James Madi
son was eight yoars in Congress
before lie becanio Secretary of
State, and after having been Se
cretary of Wtato ho was elected
President, ilohn Adams, the sec
ond President, and Thomas
Jefferson, the third, were both
members of the first Colonial
Congress, and both were siguors
of tho Declaration of Independence-
George Washington wns
elected a delegate to tho first
Colonial Congress, and ho took
an active part in its affairs.
Provious Congroasioual experi
ence is not thought to bo neces
sary, but it is not usually de
trimental to the chances of candi
dates. There seems to bo an un
written political law against the
election of Presidents from tho
Senate of tho United States. Mr.
Blaine was for twelve years a
member of Congress and for bi'x
years a mombor of tho United
States Sonato before hifi nomina
tion to tho Presidency in 1884.
lie was Senator when nominated.
