PIUCK TWO CENTS.
ONE IN HOUSE
Seating of E. W. Greine
From Thirty-fourth Dis
trict Is Assured
SHANAHAN IS PRESSED
Speaker Expected by Demo
crats to Give Them Best
Springfield", III., Feh. 27. The seat
ing of K. Walter Green, republican, of
Hiniisa.iri), in th elecd-.n contest in
th Thirry -fourth senatorial district,
was practically settled yesterday with
the completion of the recount of bal
lots in Douglas county.
Green gained l'.l votes in thU coun
ty alone. Robert Howard of Mattoon,
his democratic opponent, gained seven
votes, leaving Green a net gain of 157
votes in the county. Tills exactly
doubles the original plurality accord
ed Green in the district in the returns
made to the secretary of state's of
fice. In Coles county, first to be counted
in the recount, Howard made a net
gain of G3 votes. This reduces Green's
plurality to 2 ir, In the two counties,
but with only Clark county to lie re
counted, it ia conceded by democratic
members of the committee that How
ard's chances have dwindled to prac
tically nothing. According to the re
turns submitted to the secretary of
state the total ote in th- 20 precinct
of Clark county was Green 2,181, How.
It was fiaid many errors In tabula
ting the t-aaglas county returns wern
found. Recount Clark Next Monday,
After completing the recount of
Douglas cunty, members of the com
mittee adjourned until 1 o'clock next
Monday morning when the recount in
Clark county wiil be taken up. It in
epe ted to complete the recount and
hi! ready to rej ort back to the house
when that body meeis next uesilay.
Speaker Shanahan left for Chicago
whh his work of making up the stand
ing committee of the house in much
belter shape Mian he anticipated ear
lier in the week. He conferred wit It
a number of assemblymen in Spring
field. It is his intention to return to
Springliold Sunday afternoon.
The lirowne and anti llrowne Isu
is the one over which the democratic
mbers are at swords' points, Hrowno
having received the democratic caucus
for speaker and having
i.een voted for by a majority of tho
democratic side, takes the position
,at he i
tiie recognized head of the
sidn and should have the
' distribution of the democratic cooimit
j ten favors.
j I eaders of the anti Browne force.
I including both th'.e known as Hie
I Dunne democrats and the democratic:
j"d;ys," refuse to recognize the Isrowrin
! leadership. Some of them are fnsift
i imr net onlv that they shall be treated
; iiideijendt nt ly of ISr iw n. but de-
mci ml that llrowne nor be
any otilpp ttav (Iia any other dem
I Democrats Want Biggest Share.
The democrats are further puzzling
! Speaker Shanatan hy insisting upon a
lion's share of committee favors. They
maintain that because the democratic!
side cast a majority of votes for Shan
ahan for temporary speaker, they aro
entitled to control a majority of the
standing commit tees.
Speaker Shanahan decline!! to take
th's view cf the situation, however. To.
start with, he is a republican. Then,
committee assignments are made by
the permanent fpeaker and on the.
rcll call for pe rmanent speaker lie re
ceived more republican than demo
cratic votes. It i upon this basin that
the distribution will he made.
The speaker has heard ti.ow from all
bur l." of the mi nibern regarding their
committee preferences. Not all of the
replies, however, have been K.atisfac-
tory. A few of the republican have
not s;ulm!tte'J their preferences, mere-
lv advising Speaker Shanahan that
they will put the matter up to him.
This has caused him considerable an
noyance and will materially delay the
work of arranging the committees.
When the assembly reconvenes next
Tuesday the gates will be opened for
the Introduction cf billf. slid It Is ex
pected that a flood of, measures will
pour in. Speaker Sirjneban ia confi
dent that he will be able to announce
the hause committees before the next
legislative week ends.
