Bearing on Senatorial Fight Seen

It seems probable that the democrats
will have the honor of authorship of
the next primary election laws of Illi
nois, in which the people are perhaps
as much interested as in any enact
ment likely to come from the present
session of the general assembly. The
original republican primary measure
offered to the committee was such a
cemaplete failure that it was withdrawn,
and a substitute ofTered in its place,
and Chairman Rinnaker, of the com
mittee, gaveled the latter through with
jut having it read. The bill as thus
engineered through the committee was
presented to the house in open session
yesterday morning and was presented
for its first reading. Thereupon Rep
resentative Dougherty offered this pro
:est. which was ignored by Acting
In Formal I'rotrnt.
"We, the undersigned members ' of

which now engross politicians to the

crrnl Hoi I : prf-xac-d.
There are many views exnresHed.

Still anoth:r is that Mr. Deneen

the toga, leaving his friend. L. Y. Sher
man, in the governor's chair. Mr.
Dentin can in two years complete the
Chicago program. If he is ambitious
to go to the senate' it would be the
wise thing to pluck the honor when it
is within reach and not wait four
years and tempt tin? fates to produce a
democrat ic legislat ure'.
There is again this solution, name
ly, that Mr. Dcnccn's aspirations are
still higher than the senate and that
the reference of the senatorial ques
tion to the people will relieve him and
his administration of till r'spensibil
ity to take- any hand in the cemtest,
thus leaving him free! in his ambitions
and unhampered by fae-tiona feeding
with their attendant dangers.
At any rate it. is the general impres
sion that the amendment has been of
f red for a purpose which may not de
velop for some time to come.
