One of Famous Trio Left
When the Democrats wrested the
Speakership from "Uncle Joe" Cannon,
relegating him to a place on the floor,
he was allotted a seat adjacent to those
occupied by Daltell and Payne. Here
tho "Old Guard" trio put their heads
together, plotted against the encroach
ing Democrats, and hoped for the best
on yesterday. The fortunes of political
warfare, however, leave only Payne. on
the sixth row back, second aisle, and
he Is getting old, and deaf, and perhaps
a bit tired of the game.
"Undo Joe" declined today to com
ment upon his defeat. One can hard
ly blame tho veteran legislator, about
whoso Republican head there has
wageif for a decade all manner of
political abuse. The beginning of the
end of the Republican party dates
back to the time when Cannon was
called "Czar of the House" and Aid
rich the "boss" of the Senate. The
underpinnings beneath the Grand Old
Party began to fall then, and now
uncie joe is ouriea in tne aeons
of a once militant organization.
Pie Availed Naught.
nevertheless, even the political ene
mies of "Uncle Joe" are sorry today
because of the tale which comes from
Danville. The former Speaker Is In
his seventv-seventh year; he has served
as u member of tho House for thirty
five years; there ore men In that bod
today who had not been born when
Joe Cannon, of Illinois, made his first
speech on the floor.
Realizing that he faced probable de
feat, the venerable legislator made
rather a pathetic plea to the voters of
the Danville district.
"Send me back onco more," was tho
substance of Cannon's plea to his con
stituents. If he could have had his
wish his eightieth year might have
found "I'ncle Joe" seeking the rest of
