ME. CABLE AND HIS CO-WOEKEES.
The Rooms at Chicago, the Men In Charge
of Important Branches and What Has
Been Done ami it is Planned to Do Ap
pealing to the Intelligence of the Voter
and Making Facts Plain to Illni.
Managing a great political campaign is
not a task that one versed in ordinary
everyday politics can undertake with every
assurance of success. The duties and re
sponsibilities to one conducting the af
fairs of a party in a national campaign
are beyond the conception of he
who givss it bat passing thought,
and views the work from a distance. To
' j unexperienced who is afforded the
.vantsge of an insight into the affairs of
campaign, the duties involved upon
ose assigned to their charge appear in
; altogether different light from what
ey did before such an opportunity was
. resented. The chairman of a campaign
commiret a truggle for supremacy in
the politics of u cation such aa the present,
finds biiruc'.f b sought with constant per
plexities and anxieti'.-B, calling for the
ccntinoous exercise of much tact and
energy. Such an executive must be a
man of quick conception and clear judg
merit, it is readily seen.
Mr. Cable's Work.
Such a man is found in Hon. Ben T.
Cable who 12 hours at least, each day
may be found in charge of the western
headquarters of the democratic national
committee at Chicago. An Argus rep
resentative who made a brief call at the
rooa 8 of the committee in the Uaity
building found Mr. Cable one of the bus
iest men in all the great city. There is
scarcely a moment of the day but that
somecce is ia conference with him, while
at the same t'ma his mind must te given
to a supervision of the routine work of
the offL-e, to a great mass of correspon
dence that every mail brings, to
say nothing of the telegrams that are
constantly rouring in upon him requiring
immediate answers on questions of poli
cy and campaign work. The Akgcs'
repreainiative saw 300 letiets lying on
his desk yesterday morning, which he
whs in the act cf openirg and readicg
wttn interrupted and be had not finished
perusing their contents and oictating the
answers to his stenographer or making
such other disposition as the case might
require, when another huge bundle was
deposited for his attention.
The Committee Rooms.
Mr. Cible ran away from his work for
a few minutes to snow tne visitor
through the rooms in the committee's
charge. There are 10 of these, six on tne
second floor of the building and four on
ninth. On the first floor is the general
reception room and secretary's office and
also the offices of the heads of the literary
bureau, the naturalization and city or
ganization on the part of the national
committee, and the mailing departments.
Oa the ninth floor are Mr. Cable's four
rooms, occupied by himself and his cler
The beads of the different departments
under Mr. Cable's general charge are: W

bureau -.R.M.Spangler, naturalization and
city o ganizition on the part of tne na
tion'.! committee: W. V. Bogan, mail
ing department; George Haynes, sergeant
at arnitr, Frank P. Gorman, assistant ser
geant at arms.
"The bureau of literature is one of the
most interesting of our department," said
Mr. Cable, "and i' I mistake not it is do
ing as much work for our cause as any
instrument in our campagn wotk. So
far we nave sent out 1,500,000 docu
uments, and as you see about ycu here
the good work still goes od, and will be
pushed energetically to the end of the
When asked with regard to the mode
of distribution, Mr. Cable said, "while as
a rule we send tbtm to chairmen of the
county committees, a great mass of read
ing material is sent direct to the individ
ual voter. You know this is a campaign
of education. If the people read they
will be convinced. We propose to give
them all they want to read and they are
reading . "
The news man asked as to the pros
pects as they now appear, and Mr. Cable
said, "I am not given to boasting, but 1
tell you it is ami zing the way everything
ia inclining toward the democracy. Our
party has abundant cause for feeling
elated over the outlook, and the best of it
is it is getting brighter every day."

Discussion at the Council Meet

THIRTY, EIGHTH STREET GEADE.
A Number of Gentlemen from the Seventh

A Long Discussion of the Snbject Action
Taken on Other MattersTo Meet Again
An animated discussion was brought
about at the meeting of the city council
last evening in regard, to the matter of
establishing a grade on Thirty-eighth
street. Ex-Aid. Williamson J. II Kerr
and C. J.Jespereon.of Augustana college,
were before the council, and spoke on the
matter, laying it before that body. Sev
eral petitions in regard to the same mat
ter from residents in that vicinity were
read by the clerk and referred to next
Friday's meeting when the council will
meet to inspect the street over which
there is likely to be some trouble in fix
ing a grade that will be satisfactory all
The gentlemen who spoke before tbe
council represent that should the pro
posed six per cent grade be established it
will simply be a confiscation of at least
f 25.000 worth of property and that it
wil! leave the houses at some points in
the neighborhood of 50 feet above the
A petition from Augustana college
asking that tbe city vacate 10 feet on the
west side of Thirty eight street was also
referred to Friday's meeting. Tcey state
that if the proposed grade is established
it will leave the dormitory building on
the cast side of the grounds somewhere
about 28 feet above the street and es it is
less than 20 feet back from the line there
is danger of it slidicg into the street. It
is hoped that nothing will be dene that
will be burdensome to any
of the property holders but it is the de
sire of tbe city to establish permanent
grades in all p irts of the city, and the
start must be made some time.
A petition was also read from the
Brush Electric company, asking an ordi
nance granting it the right to lay steam
pipes tbrough certain STeets and alleys
for tbe purpose of introducing steam
hcatisg into stores and residences, which
was properly referred. Other matters
coining before the council were atteaded
to, aficr which it adjourned to meet on
