Washington, February 12. Congress
man Clark, of Missouri,' who has many
friends here, continues tirin In the belief
that he Is the coining man for Clerk of the
next House. Clark's friends all hope that
be will win the race, but it is Just us well to
be frank In regard to the matter and say
that the prospects of any candidate outside
the Randall combination nre not brilliant.
Randall's organization of his campaign Is
superb. His candidate for Clerk of the
House Is Atkins, who commands tberespect
of e ery man In the House, and controls a
largo vote In the South. He hits been
long time prominent in Congics; was Chair
man of the Appropriation, Committee In
the Forty-sixth Congress, Is an active
member of the committee now, and there
is no doubt that he would make a very ef
ficient cierk, and more than that, that, he
would control a very large vote. Thomp
son John G. has the regard of nearly
every man on tho Democratic side ot the
House, no matter what is said to the con
trary, mid though Lecdomhas many warm
frieiidi and some supporters, there 'Is little
doubt but that Thompson's polo will knock
tho persimmons when they tire ripe, unless
the situation change. Regarding the
speakership there Is no doubt that Ran
dall's organization Is superior to that of
his opponeuts, and with tho tight between
Blackburn and Carlisle weakening the
forces of those opposing him. the claims of
his friends that lie is practically sure of
election, though rather wild, nre ' not tuoro
so than thu assertion that other candidates
have prospects ns good as those of Randall.

""' WAsHrxoTos, Febsary 12. Two facts
are making rhemsdvat apparent In regard
to the tariff bills In Congress: First, that
there Is little hope that eithr of them will
pass, and second, that the Democrats will
really regret the failure to enact some legis
lation on thlt subject more than the Itepuh
llesns. It is true that the Democrats have
opposed the bill In Its various features all
tho way through, and that their delay has
lessened tho ehaticciof the bills, but now
that they begin t.see ihanhere is not much
prospect of their pasnge, they begin to
want them to pass. On the whole, Ft ap
pears that there Is not more reul regret
among Democrats at the prospect of non
passage of the bill than among the. Republi
