Texas. Dallas Times,
Senator Francis M. Cockrell of Mis
souri, Is at the Ul'sey house. "What Is
the secret of Senator Cockrell'a popu
larity at home f" was askedajita Mis
souri statesman last night" "Well,"
said he. "Frank doesn't spend much of
time speaking he doesn't pound bis
desk often In the solution of big con
stitutional questions, and the newspa
pers don't have much to say about
him; but for the twelve years he has
been in the senate no man from Mis
souri has ever confided a bit of busi
ness to him that was neglected, and
the poorest man tu the state is sure to
get a prompt answer from him to any
request made or any letter sent. He is
the best liked man ln the state to-day
and has Just been re-elected for a
third third term." The grave, gray
bearded senator, with his typical
southern face and gentle woman like
voice, smiled last night and deprecated
talking politics on a Sahbatb evening.
I have been In Washington since the
close of the session ln connection with
some committee work and hare met
hundreds of congressmen from all parts
of the country. It 1b remarkable with
what unanimity they agree that the
Democratic party made a great and
happy choice when they put Mr. Cleve
land at the head ot their ticket, and
how certain they are that no effort
should be spared to make sure his call
ing and election of another term.
Whatever little frictions there are with-
lu the party Itself and in a live party
organization there are always sotne--will
be smoothed away before the next
national convention meets and after
his nomination we will have no light
ing campaign like onr last- It will be
walk-kover for Mr. Cleveland and
his associate on the ticket, whoever be
may be."- -New York Graphic.
