It looks as though some of the republic

president when congress meets. Tbe

The senators who are most Incensed at
the president are the Illinois men. Har
rlson started in with a grievance against
the state of Illinois, or rather the politic
ians thereof, because of the endorsement
of Oresbara last year. Both Farwell and
Cullom acquiesced in the Gresham en
dowment, and in consequence) Harrison
has it in for them. When Robert Lincoln
was selected for minister to England, tbe
Illinois senators were only made ac
quainted with the president's Intention
about an bour before Lincoln's nomina
tion was sent to the senate. When Kauai
was selected for commissioner of pen
sions, the Illinois senators were not In
formed at all. This, ef course, hat
made them extremely angry, as sen

shall enter the public service from
their states. Cullom, who is a presiden
tial candidate himself, is more guarded
in his expressions than his colleague, but
during bis several visits here this sum

dry conversations with acquaintances to
denounce Harrison from A to Z. Plumb,
of Kintal, has also denounced the presi

tickled the enemies of the administra

after the election a twelve-month ago
the two pL'nnsvlvanin senators "got
together,'' as Mr. Itundall expressed
It, and agretd upon a "slate" for the city
of Philadelphia. Stna'or Cameron, who
dislikes the president cordially and makes
not the slightest attempt to disguise tbe
Tact, said that he had hut one appoint
ment to ak of the administration, and
that, if Mr. Quay offered no objection, be
(Quay) should control the selection of
the rest. To this Mr. Quay agreed
whereupon Mr. Cameron headed the sla'e
with the nsu of Mr. Cooper ss collector
ot customs. Shortly after the adjourn
ment of concrete Mr. Cameron went off
to Europe, leaving hit colleague to deal
with the administration as best ha could.
Senator Quay, at the outset, found Gen.
Harrison not disposed to move hastily in
the matter of appointment, and It was
only within the past few weeks that Mr.
Cooper wts given the place.
