WHO'LL INHERIT CLEVELAND VOTE?
Speculation Upon Consequence of Ex
President's Statement-Never was any
Likelihood of His Candidacy.
A dispatch from Washington says
that the only interest excited it
Congressional and politi-al circles
there over Mr. Cleveland's ltter of
-declination is as to the questien, t<
whom will the so-called Cleveland
strength be now thrown.
Politicians informed on the ritua
tion have long known that the talk
about Mr. Cleveland's candidacy
was for one purpose alone-tc
arouse the interest of the Easterr
Democrats, and the conservatives of
the West, in a Democratic candi
date. Since 1896 many of these
Democrats have associated them
selves entirely with the Republi
cans, until the conteniplation of
Republican policies has become,
with them, a habit of mind, and
from that to the casting of a vote
for a Republican candidate was a
So to get these men back into a
train of thought, the objective of
which was a Democratic candidate
for President, the party managers
have been talking Cleveland. It is
not to be denied that the name has
been something with which to con
jure. Mr. Cleveland lent himself tc
the plan until the passage of time
brought him face to lace wlth a
The question now is to whom
will the Cleveland strength go? St.
Clair McKelway would make Judge
Parker of New York the legatee.
He may be able to divert the Cleve
land sentiment in New York, New
Jersey and Pennsylvania to Judge
Parker, but politicians say that he
can not so easily swing the South,
and New Englanders say there is
Olney to be taken into account.
Southern Democrats say that if
Judge Parker comes into the con
vention under escort of the Cleve
land sentiment and the old Cleve
land crowd, it will be a distinci
drawback to him so far as the co
. peration of the Southern delegatp
is concerned. And yet, these sani
men, in the very next breath ad
mit that any candidate who is unan
imously supported by New York
and has a chance of carrying the
Empire State, will be acceptable tc
Ofecourse, the plan which Mr.
McKelway suggests would requirc
the sanction of Tammany Leadei
Murphy-, to make it effective. Ii
Tammany backs Judge Parker, and
there are no revolts of other factiom~
of Democrats in the State, it is uin
deniable, politicians say, that Judgc
Parker will be a formidable candhi
date and the prestige of TPannnany'.
