Hi ' Changes Among the Old
H j Heads.
lij NEW YORK, Nov, 7. When Sonator
I Scott Hhut his deek at Republican Natlon
H' ', ' headquarters Saturday night ami left
H t tlio offlco for good, halving closod up the
-work of the speakers' bureau, ho did It
Hj with a reminiscent sigh, becauso he had
H! announced to his associates on the com
H( t mittco that he proposed to abandon ac
Hj ' tlvo political work for the future. Tills
i l declaration by tho "West Virginia Senator
Hj i;i brings to mind the fact that there has
H V been an extraordinary change In tho pcr-
j Honpel of tho Republican party so far as
B, ij the active management Is concerned.
Many Changes In Eight Years.
HLt It was only eight years ago that Ic-
Hi Klr.ley ran for tho Presidency tho first
H sj time, and yet In this period of only two
H' i1 Presidential administrations the .mortality
j among the big men of the Republican
H! ' party has been astonishing, and with It
H r there has come a general retirement of
) ( the old party whoelhorscs. so that today
an entirely new generation Is in control
of the destinies of tho Republic so far as
H' 1 the Republican party Is concerned,
i I Grout men drop off Just as little men do,
l ;. but it docs seem as if they went in waves,
H! because the most casual memories of the
j f last eight years will serve to show that
j J almost every prominent actor In tho drn-
Hjj matlc campaign of 1S0C Is now off the stage
H i of activo politics and a lamentably large
i number of them have been removed by
' A young, spectacled man who wna a
Hi clfrk In the "Whlto House when McKlnley
1 t v.as first elected Is now chairman of the
' Republican National committee, nnd the
present candidate for tho Presidency was
1 only too glad to get an under secrctary-
' ship at the beginning of tho llrst McICln-
H, ley administration.
j Young Men Bun Campaign.
II This campaign has been run by young
men almost exclusively. Mark llanna has
1 i be tn succeeded by Cortelyou and Joe
Ma nicy has been almost forgotten in the
k vigor of tho administration of Elmer
Dover as secretary of the great party or-
, gi.nlzatton. The same process has been
j going on in the various State committees.
In the local representatives on the nation-
. al committee, and to an even greater ex-
' tent among the men of nntlonal rcputa-
1 Hon. who only a few years ago were as
fnmiliar figures on the streets of Wnsh-
i ii gton as In their own homes In various
v. parts of tho country.
M! ' It Is not necessary to convert this dls-
j ' I a ten into a mere obituary record or to
H 1 go over the catalogue of the great men
1 h who have passed away. But a visit to tho
Mi Republican headquarters .In Chicago and
j ,i In New York, coupled with various trips
V about tho country, brings to mind lrre-
j plstibly the thought that a complete rovo-
u lutlon In the controlling personnel of the
Hf Republican party, and, through that, of
H( ' the Nation, has been effected within a
number of years so few as to bo counted
ij on the fingers of the two hands.
' Allison a Lonely Exception.
When the preliminary campaign opened
H; r In the winter and spring of 1S9G Thomas
, 33. Reed. William B. Allison and William
jl McKlnley were tho threo chief candidates
. for tho Presidency. It soon becamo ap-
1 . parent that the principal light was be-
tween Reed and McKlnley. Both of them
r are gone. Allison remains the dignified
u and venerated "father of tho Senate," but
his Influence In the councils of the Repub-
'. llcan party has largely disappeared, and.
1 I, he contents himself with being the trust-
j ed adviser of one President after another
j I; from his point of vantage at the head of
y the United States Senate.
." McKlnley's running mato in tho memo-
I rable campaign of Garret A. Hobart
,1 of Now Jersey, also Is gono Hobart had
HT i an intimate relation for many years with
Hf the management of one campaign after
another. Ho belonged distinctively to
; what was known as "the old crowd" on
L 1 the National committee. That Is to say,
, ho belonged to the generation of political
i managers represented by Tom Piatt of
1 V New York. Matt Quay of Pennsylvania,
W' II Mcnry Payno of Wisconsin and John Tan-
Mi nor of Illinois. They have all passed out
of life since the National election of eight
,1 i years ago, which, It must be admitted, is
h j ' an extraordinary mortality for a party
I A7hlch Is professedly tho organisation of
' young and progrcsBlvo men.
H:1' Hanna and Tom Heed Gone.
'! Ma,r!c Hanna 'hed at the samo hotel in
-i WaHhington and under the samo clrcum-
Ktances a Tom Reed. Tho Illness of both
i, I these men, who In their own peraons rcp
resented the two most antagonistic olc-
i ' nicnts In the Republican politics, was
J tf 8hort. sharp and decisive. Comparatively
Hll ill fevi' days ln each 0380 brought about an
i ' end to their political and their earthly
j '! i labors.
Hl ; Henry C. Payne, who wan vlce-chair-
1 I; man of tho National commlttco and who
itl had left his Impress on Republican poli-
lt j tics to a large extent before 1S3C, died at
the samo hotel, although his Illness was
t a more lingering one, and although tho
J 2d..?v?3 forecasted through a long period
l of 111 health.
Hvi1 There was a Senatorial coterie In those
days which has a vast amount of lnllu-
F if $nco on tho party management In tho dlf-
l)1; icrent States, and, of course, ln the Na-
H h tit nal committee Ingalls. John Sherman.
Hp' J Matt Quay, McMillan of Michigan, Gear
! ?! Iow,L- Morrill of Vermont and Cushman
I'l,; K Davis of Minnesota, all havo been tn-
ii I ken away ainco the St. Louis convention
i J or eight years ago.
,j Notables Now Retired.
Hi I Many other men who had national ropu-
l ij tations at that time and who were depend-
Sf ed UII0M lo do n Krcat deal of the hard
work of the party havo drifted out of ac-
live service and -todaj really have little
jh to do with tho detail management of tho
1 li Nntlonal campaign.
? Clarkson of Iowa was then the personal
'J campaign manager for Senator Allison.
A a?d ho nad b-cn ior a dozen years one of
tj the moat trusted men at headquarters, ho
1 matter who happened to he running for
. President. Now ho is surveyor of the port
of New York, but while his advlco con-
j slantly Is sought In a National campaign,
1 .U he no longer appears In tho active man-
53 ayment. John P. Jones of Nevada and
l;l Teller of Colorado both left the party for
B good and destroyed their own personal ln-
H I $ fiuenco thereby.
,3 Ssnator Chandler oS New Hampshire,
I who was associated with the party mau-
; j Rgemont from Hayes to McKInloy, and
-who sat In the Cabinet ln the meantime,
H , ! was defeated for re-election to tho Sen-
H r ate and now holds a minor hut lucrative
; I position on the commission which Is set-
i, '( tling the Spanish war claims with becom-
L lng deliberation.
.' Hawley a Confirmed Invalid.
Senator Hawley of Connecticut, once an
aggressive factor at headquarters, has
boon In actual retirement for a long while,
owing to tho comploto falluro of both
mind and body, ana the Conncotlcut- mom
bur of tho National commltteu ln tho old
on days, Sum Feasunden of Stamford, Is
tho leading candidate for tho vacancy.
T. C. Piatt, tho New York "easy boss,"
was onco tho recognized dictator of tho
policy of tho Republican parly as ex
pressed through Its National committee,
lie and Quay tried to beat McKlnley by
putting up not only Tom Reed, but Cush
man K. Dnvla, Cullom and half a dozon
othor favorlto sons In various parts of the
country. Today Piatt cannot evon con
trol his own Stato. IIo has been sup
planted by Odell, who grow up In hia own
ofllco, and has been deprived of tho priv
ilege of running tho parly machinery in
HIb Influence at Washington luus been
dissipated, and ho Is tolerated somewhero
near tho center of tho political Htago
merely out of dofcrchco to what ho onco
was. Tho colleague of Conkllng, who
dared to resign through hia quarrol with
Garfield, is in reality far removed from
the turmoil of tho National campaign, al
though he still is permitted to be a politi
cal figurehead for the soke of the person
al iullucnco ho exercises upon affairs In
New York State.
Tom Carter Quietly Shelved,
Tom Carter, who ran Hnrrlson's unsuc
cessful campaign, and who wa3 as Jolly
and as witty a chairman as tho National
committee ever had. Is caivfullv. shelved
on the St. Louis exposition board, and
hopes to get back to tho Senate if Croe
sus Clark of Montana does not interpose
Joo Munley, who for so many years
was tho mouthpiece of tho National com
mittee. Is hidden eomowhero u) ln Maine,
and his Influonco on tho national cam
paign Is nothing. Ho is not allowed evon
tho poor privilege of Issuing the usual per
functory Illlll Whnllv naoloou rnrnnnut I'.in
Saturday boforo the election, his func
tions In tills regard having been usurped, I
apparently forever, by G-cn. Grosvcnor,
the Ohio Santa Clans.
Cornelius R. Bliss of New York cltv
pmctlcnlly Is the only Republican of
prominence left lodny In an oftlciai ca
pacity at national headquarters who par
ticipated actively in the wonderful cain
paign within the ranks of tho party which
marked the triumph of William McKln
ley and which brought to tho front tho
unique political force of Marcus A.
Hanpo of Ohio, who was sneered at by
the old-timers In 1S5G exactly a3 George
. Cortelyou has been scoffed at In 1001.
Ecw Changes in OtlTcr Party.
So great has been the change In tho Re
publican ranks that one Is lmrdly pro
pared to Und exactly the opposite Is true,
or nearly so, on the Democratic sldo of
Apparently the Republicans havo boon
the gainers by the steady Infusion of new
blood and by turning over tho party man
agement to the younger men, as tho Dem
ocratic party is to all Intents nnd pur
poses on the verge of a defeat even great
er than that of 1800, becauso then thero
was open revolt on a matter of princi
ple, while now the party seems to bo
marching to defeat with little more than
dry rot as the Impelling reason for iho
Gov. Altgcld of Illinois, Gov. Russell
of Massachusetts. Dan Vorhces of In
diana, William L. Wilson of West Vir
ginia, who framed the tariff law which
precipitated the Republican landslide of
ten years ngo, and a fow others have
passed over the divide: but it is remark
able how many of tho Democratic lead
ers who were prominent In ISM. and even
before that time, aro still more or less
actively trusted ln tho party manage
ment. Former Leaders Still Activo.
Grover Clovelnnd is actually making
speeches for Parker, and Hoke Smith.
Vilas, Francis, Harmon and Olnoy of his
Cabinet aro still In close touch with na
Dave Hill and Gorman aro still In the
thick of tho light, and Bryan, whllo he
does not represent the dominant faction,
as he did eight years ago. Is yet tho Idol
of Democratic multitudes, and is depend
ed upon by the party managers to help
them In doubtful States.
James K. Jones of Arkansas, who man
aged the disastrous Bryaji campaign;
Tom Johnson of Cleveland, who ran things
to suit himself in Ohio, aro still allvo
and kicking: and Tillman of South Caro
lina continues to make his periodical In
cursions Into tho Northern States, shout
ing against tho negro and leaving be
hind a trail of Increased Republican ma
jorities wherever he goes.

HAD MANIA FOR HORSES.
Ohio Man Imagined Himself Owner
of Livery Stable.
COLUMBUS GROVE, O., Nov. 8. El
mer Daring, a young man of Leipslc,
has been committed to tho Toledo State
hoypital for treatment.
Daring had a mania for horaes nnd
imagined himself the owner of the city
livery. Tie hired out turnouts at will,
and made contracts for the same. When
the remains of a former Lelprfc resi
dent were brought there for burial Dar
ing met the funeral party and, believing
the' owned the livery, endeavored to
eject the driver and funeral director,
and drive the hearse himsslf. He re
fused to leave the seat on tho hearse,
and whon forcibly removed cursed and
acted like a madman. The relatives
were frightened by the row on the
hearse wherein reposed the remains of
their loved one, and the women of the
party nearly collapsed.

Mrs. Demars fired first, but there
were no other witnesses.
Bullet in Hor Breast.

Apparently Dead Man Astonishes Cor

OMAHA, Nov. $. In the morgue
In this city a man, apparently dead,
suddenly threw off the sheet with which
he was covered and. with a groan loud
enough to bo heard half a block away,
oat bolt upright on the slab on which
he had been laid out, looked into the
faces of the Coroner's Jury, which had
been impaneled to Inquire into the cause
of his death, and asked what was going
A stranger who, from papers on his
person, was believed to be James Black,
a bricklayer from Cedar Rapids nnd Ot
tumwa, la., was found unconscious ln
the street by Thomas Grier, a night
watchman for the Hoaglund Lumber
company. Beside him lay a half-empty
bottle of ether.
The unconscious man was taken to
Clarkson hospital and there at 1 o'clock
he apparently expired. Coroner Bralley
removed the body to the morgue and
Impaneled the Jury.
While the Jury was conducting Its
investigation Into the cause of death
Black rose as from the dead and struck
horror into the hearts of the Coroner
nnd his Jury. A physician was imme
