Mikdlickook, April 11.
The most important question
discussed by every Democrat who
has an eye on the situation is the
personality of the next Presiden
tial candidate. Of course numer
ous candidates are mentioned and
each possible candidate has his
friends, but i is impossible to se
cure any general consensus of opin
ion on the subject. Many of the
most influential Democrats seem
to regard it as entirely too early to
select a candidate, in support of
which proposition they say that a
boom started too early invariably
results in defeat of the candidate
for whom it is started. Senator
Gorman, Judge Parker of New
York and Senator Stone of Mis
souri all have their friends, bu
there are many who believe the
candidate wilhbe a "dark horse
as yet unmeutioned.
TnE success of Carter Harrison
and Tom Johnson in the mayoralty
elections of their respective cities
is a source of great gratification to
all Democrats who have followed
the trend of political events in 111
inois and Ohio. In the former in
stance the result in. Chicago is par
ticularly pleasing as it shows tha
the Republicans of Illinois stanc
ready to repudiate the rule of the
notorious "Billy" Lorimer. The
President's action in insisting in
haying Mayor Harrison take par
in his reception was in itself a re
pudiation of Lorimer and the re
election of Mayor Harrison was a
second and more decisive one
Illinois Democrats are led to hope
that the Lorimer domination wil
throw Illinois into the Democratic
column at the next election. The
election of Mayor Johnson precip
itates a decidedly interesting situ
a,tiou in Ohio. It is, perhaps, in
the fact that Senator Hanna, de
spite his energetic work, failed to
sway his own city that the majority
of the Democrats find the greates
satisfaction. Then Mr. Johnson
has espoused a cause which is like
ly to provo popular everywhere
namely the 3 cent railway fare
idea. Mr. Johnson himself is a
large stockholder in one of the
Cleveland railway companies, but
that has not prevented his throw
ing his entire influence in favor of
a reduced . tariff for the city and
