Democrats Preparing to
Elective Offices of
Cleveland Changes the System
of tho Senatorial Bosses.
There Is no Longer Such a Thine as
Sacred Patronage, tho Scram
ble Is Made Froo for All.
Wabhinoton, March 22. Associated
Press. The Democrats of the senate
mot in caucus at noon to consider the
subject of the reorganization of the elec
tiveollicos of the senate, Ihe caucus
adjourned at 4 o'clock, having como to
a determination to nominatoan elective
officers' ticket composed of Win. H. Cox
of North Carolina, ex-representative,
for secretary of the senate, J. It. Right
of Indiana, cx-bergcant-nt-arms, for ser-geant-at-arms,
Ilev. It. II. Milburn,
present chaplain of tho houso of repre
sentatives, for chaplain of the senate.
Tho result was not reached without pro
tracted debate, for there was a consider
able element of the party that opposed
the idea of doing snytlnng that would
bo a violation of tho' precedents of the
eenato, and give cause tor opposition on
the part of tho Republicans. The mo
tion for the admission of three senators,
who Aero appointed by the governors of
Montana. Vyoming and Washington,
was not broached. Tho quostion will
come bofore tho senate on tho report of
the committee on privileges And elec
tions. After the caucus was over ono of the
leading members of the Democratic
committee said it was the intention of
the party to mako an attempt to elect
the nominees; just when this would be
done ho could not say ; but a resolution,
he thought, might be introduced in the
senate at any time. If the Republicans
appeared determined in their ellorts to ,
prevent tho reorganization at this ses
sion it may be that the Democrats will
desist and let it go ovor. It appears
tltough that thero is no probability of
the abandonment of the idea to make nt
least an eirort to carry out tho will of
Chanced tho System.
Tho press.ue exerted by Congressmen
at tho whito houso for appointments,
developed into an individual scramble.
Th6 president effectually disintegrated
the delegation endorsement svstem, and
now each man is going for himself, and
pushing for individual friends. One re
sult which tho president achieved, and
which was his design, is breaking up
ring politics in delegations and patronage
heretofore considered the Bacred prop
erty of senators, for instance, marshals
and district attorneys. They are now
declared frco for all, and humble mem

of privato citizens may present tho

Allen W. Thurman's Ambition.
Columuus, O., March 22. It is said
hero that young Allen W.Thurinan, son
of tho "Old Roman," is making a red
hot fight for minister to Germany and
that he is endorsed by Senator Brico,
nil the Ohio Democra'tic congressmen,
ex-Governor Campbell, Lawrence T.
Neal, and other promincntand eminent
Democrats. There is probab'y no Dem
ocrat in the country who had more in
fluence with President Cloveland than
ex-Senator Allen T. Thunnan, and if ho
requests the appointment of his son to
Ilia important place of honor and trust,
it is almost cartain that he will got it.
President Cleveland and Secretary of
State Gresham, it is Bid, havo had the
strongest petitions filed with' them in
the lift few days asking for Thurinan's
appointment. Thero are a very few
Ohio Democrats who are against Thur-man.

Have been tho Motive.
TucbON, Ariz., March 22. f Associated
Press. II. S. Stevens, a prominent cat
tleman and delegate to congress from
Arizona from 1872 to 1870, shot himself
this afternoon, dying in two hours. Ho
had been despondent for some time ow

deceased was a highly respected citizen.
Tho Citizen last evening contained
the following account of the tragedy:
Hiram Stevens shot himself in the
forehead this afternoon. The wound is
an ugly one and will verv likelv prove
No cause can be given for the desper

as much as shocked when they first
heard of it.
Mr. Stevens for several days has been
out with the board of supervisors look

tween here and Nogales.
The party returned about noon today,
and all who saw Mr. Stevens say that

Suddenly she heard the report ot a
revolver from the room of her husband

lying on the bed. Blood was spurting
from a largo hole in his forehead and by
his side was a smoking revolver.
He was not dead, so two local physi
cians were called in and commenced
probing for the ball. It seemed to have
taken a course toward tho right side of
tho head instead of going directly into
the brain. If such is the case he may
recover unless somo mental complica

Mrs. Stevens was in the hall of the
house when the physicians were at
work. Her head 'was tied up with a
towel with blood spots on it.

She then ran out into the yard
screaming and ho went into tho room
and put tho bullet into his own bead.
Some of the children who were in the
yard playing at the time say they heard
the shot after she ran out the door.
Mrs. Stevens when seen was in a very
nervous and excitable condition and
could not speak coherently to anybody.
Sho was much affected by what may
turn out a tiageuy.

the board of supervisors ho received
030 votes, which gnvo him one of the
largest majorities on the tickot.
Mr. Stevens was born in the United
