Throw Election Into
TIE WOULD RESULT
FROM VOTE THERE
Senate, Already Deadlocked,
Would Give Place to the
By JUDSON C. WELLIVER.
They are talking on Capitol Hill
and in political circles generally
about the chance of the Presidency
going to a man who has been nom
inated" by no party; a man whom
nobody is thinking of voting for, and
who .will not appear on any ballot
He is Philander Chase Knox, Sec
retary of State.
If the Electoral College should bo
divided among three candidates, so
that no man would get a majority
a condition which is regarded as far
from improbable the election of a
President would be thrown Into the
House of Representatives.
If the election went to the House
the next President would bo chosen
by the PRESENT House, not by the
one that will bo chosen in November.
And the present House couldn't
elect, because there would bo a tie.
Senate Would Act.
In that event, the Senate would bo
enUtle dto elect a Vice President, who.
In the failure to choose a President.
must be'chbsen'from the"two who have
most electoral votes.
But for more than a year tho Senate
has been unable to elect a Pestdent
pro tempore. The progressive Republi
cans will not vote for the "regular"
Republicans' candidate, Mr. Galllnger;
the regulars will not vote for the pro
gressives' candidate, Mr. Clapp; the two
crowds are of course unwilling to give
any assistance to the Democratic can
didate. Mr. Bacon. The Senate has
struggled along for many moons now
without a President pro tempore.
"Would it have any more success If It
tried to elect a Vice President, who was
assured of becoming President by vir
tue of that choice? Seemingly, not.
The progressive Republicans would sit
silent rather than vote for Sherman,
and the regulars would do the same
rather than support, say, Hiram John
son. There would be the same tie-up
that now makes the election of a Presi
dent pro tempore impossible.
Mardch 4 would roll around with this
situation prevailing, and nobody would
beln sight to be Inaugurated for Presi
dent. The Inaugural parade might form
and march down historic Pennsylvania
venue; but there wouldn't be anybody
to ride In the carriage with the Presi
dent, as his designated successor.
Whereupon, automatically, under tho
Presidential succession law that was
passed following the assassination of
President McKlnley, the Secretary of
State would be next In line for the
, succession; he would present himself
to Chief Justice White, take tho oath,
and become President!
And that would make Secretary
Knox Chief Executive.
If. meanwhile, he would resign or
otherwise retire from the Secretaryship,
the next man In line for the succession
would be Secretary of the Treasury
MacVeagh, a Democrat. Concerning the
administration Mr. MacVeagh might bu
expected to give. It can be predicted
with some confidence that he wouldn't
name A. Piatt Andrew as his nrlvate
secretary. Farther, there Is a notable
nebulosity of view as to his probable
As to the Presidential succession in
case of a failure to choose through the
Electoral College, much Investigation
, 'has been In progress lately. The possi
bility Is not regarded a8 at all remote.
In case the House chooses a President.
It must choose from the three candi
dates who have received the hlghebt
number of votes In the Electoral Col
lege, Each State casts a single vote;
that Is. It votes as the majority of Its
(House delegation determines. It a
State has Ave Republicans and six
Democrats, It gives one vote for a
Democrat for President; the six Demo
crats would have to caucus, if there
were two Democrats In the list, and
determine for whom It would be given.
Now,' as the House Is today consti
tuted, there are twenty-two State dele-
