Historical Question at Chicago.
New Yokk, Sept. 14. The World prints
this morning an interview with Richard
Cttiker, nt London, in which ho discusses
American politics and presidential pros
pects, Including the third term question,
very freely. Crokc-r has sailed by the Co
lumbia from Southampton for New York.
Croker was asked:
"What do you think about a third term
far Mr. Cleveland:-"
"Cleveland and a third term, eh? I am
afraid I cannot give you any direct answer
m to whether I shall support him or not.
If ho ncc'ived th Democratic nomination
of course I should supjiort him, but
wh' t her I should assist ill obtaining the
nomination for him is a maltor which I
have not decided,- and do not arc to de
cide or wish to dU.-mss. I understand that
business looks bright across tho water,
which makes nie think that eievehmd or
any other Dumocrut but Cleveland in
particular, if he bo nominated will b
elected with a rush.
Third Term j Tough Corner.
"Cleveland's outspoken uttitude against
the silver men will do him good all over
the country. The great business interests
oftbet'nited States can only. stand firm
on a gold basis, and gold must lie an in
violate plank in the Democratic platform.
In regard to the prejudice that exists in
very many people's minds ns to a third
t.'rm, that is a very tough corner indeed
tj turn. Grant discovered that. But pre
cedent can lie made, and then again pre
cedent can Ix- broken luid another pr.-cc-detit
mado. Mr. Cleyehiud has not taken
liiJ1 siillieieutly into his conlideni-o to have
cohlldcd to me his intentions regarding
his acceptance or the reverse, but it is dif
ficult to conceive any limn refusing tho
lasting honor of lieing tho lirst man to
s:-rve three terms as president of tho
Wliiln.-y Would Ilea Strong Man.
"Mr. Clevi.iml is no doubt as human as
the ret if us. But. as I said In-fore,
a tough corner bus to be turned. Prejuilieo
has to be overcome, and will it be? But
I must snv right here that I tliUik t'.ie pres
ent administration bus lui-n an era of
great, prosperity to tha country, ami tlrat
under Mr. Cleveland I ha vu no re. won to
lielieve that prosperity would not continue
"And what do you think of Mr. Whit
ney's plmncesf" the reporter askod.
"I thinly, if Mr. Whitney were nomin
he would also lie a very strong candidate.
He is tin elegant gentleman, a man of good
executive, power, and everything in his
past redounds to his credit. Whether Tain
many would suptKirt him or not I cannot
say. I havo been too long ubaenr, nnd
ctia only suggest proliabilitics."
SPOILS IS TIIK OXI.Y IssfE.
And Machine I'oliiies the Only Politics
That Will Win.
"Who is your favorite Republican, Mr.
"Well, I can hardly give you a reply in
regard to that. I flout favor any of them,
ami I don't want to, but if any one does
get In it may just as well be Allison aft
nnylxifly else. That was a great victory of
Quay's the other day was' lit it?" Croker
interjected. "I tell you machine politics
are the only iolitics that will win. Ma
chine means a methodical business system
and methods, ard business must lie carried
out lu politics as iu everything elso that
plays to win.
"I do not sec any particular lighting is
sue for the neiit presidential campaign,
anyhow. The tariff cannot be touched,
the silver ni"n area broken army; prohi
bition is n local Issue. No, the light next
time will be for the sjioils only, und ut nil ;
times ill lus'.iry, whether In America or
anywhere die, the victor has usually
grabbed those sjniils. I must say that I
am not really meditating uny particular
part iu politics, ut least at present. I huvo
had enough ,f it, as everylxidy knows, and
it is not a bed of roses. I think I can con
