HIGH HONOR IN HINT
Chicago Paper Thinks It Has
Made a Startling Dis
covery. BEN T. CABLE'S FUTUEE ASPIRATION
IleM That He U a Candidate for the I'nited
State Senate In a Combination With
Mayor Carter II. Harrison, of Chicago
Other Democrats Who Are Also Talked
of in the Same Connection.
There is great honor often in the
hint that associates a man's name
with distinction. If nothing more
comes to Jlon. Ben T. Cable tlian this
connection, he many therefore feel
gratified, for the Chicago Times-Herald
has given it to him. In this
morning's issue, under a striking
head, which leads off '-Toga for Cable!
l'ock Island Man Said to Covet a
Seat in the Senate, it starts out by
saying: -Ben T. Cable, of Rock Isl
and, is accused of harboring designs
on a scat in the United States senate.
This is offered as the reason why he
was so anxious to get back into the
party fold in Illinois and get a place
on the state central committee. I!v
1!00, his friends ligure. he will have
reestablished his standing as a party
leader sufficiently to make him a sen
atorial candidate". All of which de
pends, of course, upon the democrats
winning a legislative majority in that
ar. 1 lie theory as to Cable comes
from one of the most important co's
of the democratic state machines.
Audit is moietlianatheorv. hesavs:it
is a fact. Tarty conditions right now
and foreshadowed possibilities lend
plausibility to the theory. Mayor
Harrison's candidacy for governor is
its corollary. John' I. Altgeld has
been honored with stump-speech nom
inations for senator a dozen times
within a vear. But conditions have
changed within a couple of mouths,
and no matter how much of a popular
iiioi n man may ne in ins party, he
needs a bit of niaehiney to crown his
popularity with an oflieo."
1 he article goes further bv six ak-
ing of the tx-governor as opposed to
Mr. Harrison, but holds that the hit
ter's reelection as mayor of Chicago
next spring will make" him the logical
gubernatorial candidate, and furtht'
-it is practically beyond the range of
possibility to expect acmiiesccnec of
country democrats in any plan for
giving doiq me governorship ana the
senatorship to Chicago. Right here
the Cable candidacy conies in. He
and Mayor Harrison are warm personal
menus. iiieir particular olitical
courtesies are interwoven. When the
silver mem from Egypt fought Cable's
reappearance on the state central com
mittee Harrison's friends went out
and did battle for him. These two
elements are credited with a thorough
agreement as to plans for the future.
Harrison fur governor and Cable for
senator' is the shibboleth."
In supiMitt of the declaration that
-Mr. Cable cannot run awav with a
senatorial nomination without any
body trying to halt him." the Times
Herald mentions Judge Nicholas
Worthington. of Peoria, C. K. Ladd,
of Ivewanee, and Judge Carrloie Boir
gess as also likely candidates for the
senatorship when the time conies.
