Hon. S. S. Cox does not believe that
Mr. Kaudall has a majority ot the Deino-

support him for the speakership. Mr,
b.llgvul lUttl lit? (Lux) call WitKc tie
good a showing for the position as any
one, but there is yet nothing sure for any
of the candidates for tho position. Cox
think the member arc not going to re

not go to Washington pledged to K in
da!! or any one else.
Even Warmouth, the ex-governor ot
Louisiana, is ot the opinion that the set
tlement of the political difficulties in that
state by ihe recognition ol Nicholl a
governor is having a wonderful effect on
the business interest of the citj' of N'etv
Orleans and of the state generally. In
New Orleans tho sugar and cotton re
ceipts are now larger than they have
been at any time since tho war, and
the business interests of the city have
taken a new start tor the better.
The failure ol the administration to or

the Itepublicati party i no longer a

lately written a letter to a friend in
Washington, in which he says : I think
'the chances are in favor of llaudair
'success, and that in any event the
'Id-iiiovrat are likely to organize the
house." The failure to capture enough
iKiuocratlc votes to elect either Foster
or GurlielJ to the speakership is a great
disappointment . to the president, who
confidently beii. veJ that, after having
recognized Hump-on and Xicholls, he
