EI3 MAGNIFICENT GENERALSHIP.
Bow Be Won Old Colleague On by One
Over loth Side of Chicago aa the City
of the National lcmocratle Conven
tion. Cornelius Gardner, the Washing
ton correspondent of the Chicago
Evening Journal, in his write up of
the causes which led to Chicago win
ning the democratic national conven
tion pays this glowing tribute to the
worth of lion, lien 1. Cable, of this
city, Illinois member of the demo
cratic national committee:
'Chicago's victorv is due to Ben
Cable,' said Lieut. -Gov. Sheehan, of
Sew York, to tho Journal corre
spondent immediately after the tight.
I never saw such rood work done in
mv life as Cable performed during
tne lighting of tbe national commit
tee. He has shown himself to be a
political general of the very highest
order. W nen 1 tell vou he even in
duced me to vote for Chicago and
also my fellow New Yorkers; Mr.
Crimmons, who is ex-Secretarv Whit-
no's representative here and who
held Rhodo Island's proxy, to vote
for Chicago also, you will appreciate
the excellence of 'his work. It was
one of the most interesting experi
ences oi mv lite. Alter the hrst few
ballots, when Chicago slumped from
6 to 4, and remained there, the
chances of that city winning the
prize were mil.
" 'Cable, however, hopeful from
the first, never lost courage a mo
ment. He worked with the individ
ual members, and they did most
persistent effort in capturing the
necessary number or votes to give
the convention to Chicago. He se
cured them chitfly on account of his
own personality," and the fact that
he. himself, requested it on his indi
vidual account. Of course, 1 should
have preferred to have had tho con
vention go to .New York, ami 1 voted
for New York until there was but
one vote for that citv beside its own.
Then I acceded to Cable's earnest
solicitations and cast my ballot for
Cable Win Curman.
" 'It was an excellient piece of po
litical work on Hen Cable's part that
gave Chicago the convention, sa:d
Senator Gorman. The senator, him
self, was for New York, and his sec
ond choice, Cincinnati. Cable, after
a number of votes, went to the sena
tor and made a personal plea to him
to cast his ballot for Chicago. The
senator said: ! would like to
oblige you, Ben, but what's the use?
Cbicajro can't win this tijrlit.'
" 'Yes, it can,' said Cable. I
have got the votes of North Caro
lina, Georgia and the District of Col
umbia, and a vote which Michigan
has been casting for St. Louis has
just been promised me. Now, if you
will give me your strength, Chicago
" 'If that is the case, Ben, I guess
vou will be successful, and I think
this is about time to break,' said
"National Committeeman Norris,
of the District of Columbia, took up
the story here, anil continued: !
had been voting for St. Louis all the
time. And St. Louis was, in my
opinion, the citv destined to win the
prize. Had it not been forCable.it
would have gone to St. Louis. Cable
did a splendid piece of work. He
came to me and took me by the lapel
and made a strong personal plea for
support, ami he emphasized his
words by boiing a hole in my left
chest wiih his lore'inger.
'morris,' he said, ! have never
made a personal request of you
my life. Now. I want you to do me
the favor of casting your vote for
'But Ben,' I said, 'I have been
voting for St. Louis and don't see
how I can change.'
Make a Special Pica.
'But I make this a fpecial plea,'
said uabie, 'and n you will give me
your support, we will win.
'He had seen Gorman and gotten
his support before coming to me.
and had gone to Harrity, who was
voting for New York. He persuaded
Harritv to abandon New York and
induced him to wire to Miunesota
for Committeeman Djran's proxy.
Immediately Harrity received th.s
proxy and he cast it f jr Chicago to.
gether with his own vote'
" 'Cable then went to Brice and af
ter a hard argument with the sena
tor, drew a promise from Brice if it
were necessary to prevent the con
vention going to St. Louis to vote
'Brice would, of course, stick
out for Cincinnati so long as there
was any use in doing so. The break
then began and Ch'Cago won. Al
though surprised. I am glad-"'
The Journal tells in its head of how
Cable forced fellow committeemen to
vote for Chicago, also terming him a
hvpnotist. and says that Sheehan

spell, and that "when a man was

effort which is to be made to bring
the convention to be held next
year to Kock Islan '. TLe bock
Island county board at its last
session, in providing for the
appointment of delegates to the con
vention, instructed them to use every
possible effort to insure next year's
convention for Kock Island. Super
visor Quayle, who may be detained
at home on account of sickness, has
nevertheless been busy today prepar
ing a pamphlet to be distributed in
the convention, setting forth the ad
vantages of Rock Island county, its
facilities for properly entertaining
the supervisors and voicing the hos
pitality of Kock Island and Moline.
The circular is to contain a cut of the
new Kock Island county court house,
with the inscription: "New Rock
Island county court house in which
the convention may be held," as the
structure will be built and dedicated
by that time.

supervisors would be heartily wel

another horse, which was attached
to the other end of the rope. The
