Springfield. My 27. "How do you
think the state of Illinois will go in the
next presidential election?' was asked
Congressman Springer today as he lay on
a sofa recovering from his recent illness.
"That is difficult to say," he answered,
"as so many new voters will have come
into the field of action between the last
election here and that date. It may safely
be calculated that Chicago alone will add
some 10,000 votes to the list, as compared
with lat fall's election. What the pali
tical tendency of these voters may oe it
cannot be said with any certainty, but
one thing is certain, the signs are full of
hope for democracy."
"Then you would consider Illinois a
"Certainly I should. This state may
be locked upon in the future as a doubt
ful ose in presidential elections, and this
position is derived from a study of the
result of last fail. There has never been
anything like it in the history of the
country, or atleasi, in the history of the
republican party. Such sweeping ma
jorities over such a vt section of terri
tory was something unprecedented."
"Do jou think the democrats will
nominate Cleveland in 1892 as their presi
"That depends." said Mr. Springer.
"If the New York delegation be favor
able to Cleveland he will be nominated
in the convention. If it is not, some
other man will be chosen. The demo
crats in that year will act in the most
cautious manner. They will choose as
their standard bearer a man who, in their
opinion, will win, irrespective of the
section he may hail ftom. The principles
of success will receive their attention,
coupled, of course, with the needs of the
"In the event of ClevtUnd not obtain
ing the nomination, do you think Gov.
Hill would be selected?"
"1 hardly thick so. Hill has been
selected United States senator and will
not only fill that position until the end of
Harrison's present term, but until the end
of the nest administration, no matter
which partf may have control. In the
present condition of affairs political, it
would look as if the democrats would not
be justified in withholding any strength
from that division of the national legisli
ture, and it may be looked upon ascertain
-.hat they thus wisely consider it."
"Do you think the new national or
people's partv will dtvelope any formida
"Yes. I thick it likely tliat it will,
especially in some sections, tat of Kan
fas, for instance. No, Taubeneck did
not receive much at its hands and perhaps
will not. as the party has much better
timber than he. ButStreeter wiU.no
doubt, find mucn favor in that organizi
tion. And then there is Weaver of Iowa,
lie too. will, without question, be looked
tpon with favor in the councils of the
I arty. However, the party is too new as
jet to speculate much upon its future de
velopment." "Will the republicans, do you think,
nominate Harrison for a second term?'
"It looks that way now, it 6eems to me.
Earrison's has not been a bad adminis
tration and this may induce his renomi
nition, but in the event of the people
tl inking otherwise all eyes would be un
questionably turned to B'.aine. At any
rate Blaine is the choice of the politicians
wliile Harrison is perhaps thp choiceof the
pt ople. And jet, after all, Blaine would,
upon Lis nomination, be the choice of the
ptople as well and they would rallv to
hii standard. But then it is too soon to
speculate. Things look that way now
bet a year hence the whole outlook may
be changed. There is one thing that will
beir repetition, and that is that the dem
ocratic party will act witu the utmost
wisdom and care, and whatever may be
done will be done for the best interests of
the people as a whole."
I know this is a delicate question,"
said your correi-pocrJett. "bir. d) you
fetl inclined, under the circumstances, to
say auything regarding the nest speaker
ship of the bouse?"
Mr. Sptinser closed his eyes, slowly
moved bis Lead, and answered:
"Upon that question I have nothing to
saj. Should I utter anything in the most
dis.nterested way it would niDst likely be
misconstrued or misinterpreted, and it
mifht look as if I were trying to under
value what others may have done or said.
Th.s being so I must be permitted to re
frain from saving anything further on the
sut ject. "
"What kind of a figure will ex SDeabt-r
Retd cut on the floor of the next house?"
'He will be the leader of his party then
as 1 e has been for some time in the pst.
Wten he came to congress some 14 years
asro, he was modest and unassuming as
ail new members are by compulsion, be
cause tven should a newly fledged mem
ber assume too much, nobody would give
him anv attention. He must bide his
time. Reed is an active, intelligent man,
and can make a gool five minutes' speech,
but for a lengthy deliverance he is not
Notwithstanding Mr. Springer's mod
esty concerning any utterance" in relation
to the speakership he is one of the most
avai.abie men for that important position.
It is a well known fact that he has occu
pied the speaker's chair longer perhaps
than any other man in the house, being
frequently called to fill the place almost
from his first entrance into congress. The
dutiis of the chair largely fell upon him
and Sunset Cox when the speaker proper
wished to vacate it temporarily. He has
thus gained a familiarity with the rules
whicH is exceeded by none in that branch
of thi national legislature, to which he
has added much careful study and close
observation. Reed never occupied the
chair, ever temporarily, until he was elec
ted to the place.
Th' senate, you will observe, has
passed the million dollar appropriation
bill fc r the worid's fair, and the house
will now take up the senate bill and pass
it also. It is not expected that Ha ma
iority will be so proportionately large in
the Louse in its favor aa it has been in
the senate, but that it will pass there
seems not a shadow of doubt.
It in generally thought that Senator
Crawford has crawled into his hole and
drawn the hole in after him. Like the
woman who was drowned in a well by
her husband for persisting in the last
word about the scissors, and who, whtn
her head had diappeared and but the tips
of her fingers remained uncovered, initi
ated the vexatious article Jn dispute to
make a sign of what sbe couldn't utter
so Crawford when he was told to shut up
oa his favorite stock yards bill of loug
standing immediately hustled out another
little one for his constituents to look at
and which will go the way of iti prede
cessor. One would have thought that
having been effectually sat upon in re
gard to stock yards that he would haxe
