Review of the Field of Politics from
Chicago. Oct. 15 It is less than
month before election, and from a repub
lican standpoint affairs political are more
chaotic tban ever. Conversely the demo
crats are more sanguine tban ever.
Uemocrats Confident in Illinois.
That the democrats regard Illinois as a
doubtful state well worth flighting for is
evidenced from the begmmngof the cam
paign. ir they had not so viewed it.tney
would not hare nominated Adlai E. Ste
venson for vice-president. It was only
after careful, conservative thought that
be was selected as Cleveland's running
mate by the Chicago convention, and 24
hours before the nomination was made he
waa scarcely thought of for the place.
Then, as in previous conventions, a great
many supposed the time-honored custom
of selecting one candidate from New
York and the other from Indiana would
be followed. But that custom had led
only to defeat, except in one Instance,
atid that was when Thomas A Hendricks,
one of the greatest democrats the coun
try over produced, was alive.
Where shall we turn to select our
candidate for vice president?" was the
question tbe convention asked itself.
Not to Ohio, certainly, as the ticket met
with defeat but four years ago when the
most popular man in that state was on
tbe ticket. Nor to Iowa, Wisconsin, or
Michigan, for the time was not yet ripe to
risk defeat for so small a prize as tiiher
of them, but to Illinois.
To understand the exact political con
dition of the other western states some
knowledge of Illinois politics is neces
sary. This state at one time was re
garded as solidly republican as Vermont
or Pennsylvania is. There was a time
when it was democratic but that time dis
appeared with tbe passing away of
Stephen A. Douglas. Since then the re
publicans have always had a majority
n the state, but that majority is not
what it once was. From 60.000 and 50.
U00 it has gradually dwindled down un
til now the party of monopolies and
trusts is satisfied if it gets a bare plural-
ty. It was this fact that led to Steven-
on s nomination for vice president, and
now all eyes are on Illinois. As Illinois
goes, so win tbe country go. is tne
watchword of tbe republicans. The dem
ocrata do not take exactly tbe same view
of tf.e situation, but tiey say tbey are
willing that Illinois should join New
York, Indiana, New Jersey and Connecti
cut in the democratic column and elect
Mr. Cleveland by a still larger majority.
Western Headquarters and Mr. Cable.
The second step was to establisn west
ern headquarters in Chicago, ana uon
gresqman Cable, of Illinois, was put in
charge At first tbe republicans ridiculed
the idea of establishing r'emocratic head
quiners here for tbe purpo e of fighting
for Illinois and tbe other western states.
Tbey said it was some of Don Dickin
son's rainbow-chasing which he indulged
in 1883. Tbey scoffed at tbe idea and
laughed it to scorn. Even the local
democratic papers denounced the plan as
one 'hat would embarrass the work tbat
must be done in New York. This was
because Cable would not give tbe local
democrats any money for the state cam
paign. All this is now changf d. It did not
take long for democrats and republicans
to ltarn tbat C-.ble is a man of ere- t po -litical
sagacity a man resourceful in
ideas and a strategist equal to tbe best
He began to conduct the fight In earnest.
He la d his wires brst to capture Illinois,
and his representatives in Iowa, Michi
gan, Wisconsin, North and South Da
kota mtde a play for tbese states. He
took tbe stand that Hlinois should be
made the battle ground, and that it was
worth all tbe rest of the other states put
together. He knew that Governor Boies
would be able to carry Iowa for Cleve
land if any man could, and tbat be wou'd
do it if such a thing were possible. He
also knew tbat Michigan is sure to give
half of her electoral votes to Cleveland,
anyhow, and that Don Dickinson would
secure tbe rest if there was any way to do
it. So he bent his energies toward se
curing the vote of Illinois.
Thus far bis efforts have been more
tban successful. The democratic c n
didate for governor in Illinois hat been
conducting his own campaign in a r-
martably successful manner, and Ca
ble's national committee have seen to it
that tbe national ticket is taken care of.
Thus tbe two tickets nstional and tbe
state are working independently of
aob other, and each is helping the other
tn a great measure. On the other band,
be republicans have been handicapped
because tbe stste committee has had both
campaigns to look after. At first it was
said at there would be no branch bead
quarters established in Chicago, but when
Cable's headquarters made such head
way the republicans bethought them
selves that after all it might be wise to
do a little missionary work in Chicago.
W. J. Campbell, national committeeman
from this state, therefore opened a sort
of branch headquarters in bis office in
Chicago This is the same Campbell
whom President Harrison selected for
chairman of tbe national committee, and
about whom ex-Senator Fsrwell wrote an
inquisitive letter that resulted in Mr.
Campbell's refusing tbe proffered chair
manship The Republican Situation.
Campbell began to conduct a campaign
independent of tbe state ticket. He and
his followers have no love for Governor
Fifer and tbey would not be averse to
seeing Harrison elected and Fifer de
feated. Tbe retalia'e. tbe state commit
tee made its state campaign for Fifer
only, and not for the national ticket.
Then there was friction. Fifer is a weak
candidate, and even tbe republicans are
about willing to concede nis defeat Mr.
Campbell has msde a detnand upon tbe
state committee to throw Fif r overboard
and to make the fight from now until elec
tion on national issues. This mtnda'e was
received early this week and it has already
been put into effect. Mr. Campbell went
to New York and had a talk with the le.d
ers there, and it was decided ihattverv-
thing local in Illinois should be sacrificed
for Harris on and Ueid. He returned a few
days ago and brought tbe decision with
The Question of Finances.
Then there is the question of finances
ami a very bothersome question it is to
the republicans. Cable has enough mon
ev for tbe democratic campaign in tbe
west, or if he has not got it in his pocket
he can get it at a moment's notice. He
has appointed a finance committee of 15
of Chicago's wealthiest snd most it fl l
ential democrats. Two of them held
foreign portfolios under President Cleve
land, and tbey are able to raise or even
cODtribute all tbe money that is needed
for a dozen campaigns. The republicans
are not so fortunate. Tneir committees
are broke ana it nas been necessary to
send to New York to national headquar
ters for cash. 8enator Hiscock, of New
York, reached Chicago early this week.
and it is said that be brought $200,000
with him, with the stipulation thit it
shall all be used for tbe national ticket.
Callers at Headquarters.
Among tbe callers at western demo
cratic headquarter during tbe week was
Governor Boyd, cf Nebraska. He was
on bis way home from New Y" rk. and
he says tbat state is sure to co for
Cleveland. John 9. Dickiuson, chairman
of the Kansas democratic state central
committee, was also here. He is positive
that Kansas will go for tbe people's p-tr-
ty by 30.000 majority. A B. McKioley.
chairman of tbe Colorado democratic
state central committee, was another
caller He expressed tbe same views in
regard to the attitude of tbe west toward
tbe people's party txket.
Frcm all indications it may be confi
dently said that un'ess all signs change
within the next month, the democrats
will achieve a splendid victory.
"Pearson's speeches have cooked his
goose, even if he ever had any chance of
being elected. He cannot talk a little
bit, and when he gets on the stand after
Fifer and Ray and mumbles out a few
words which no one oan understand he
excites the contempt of his audience,"
said a leading Republican. However.
elie other candidates grin over it, for
they know that that Pearson has his
employes out trading them off everywhere.
George W. Prince, Republican candi
date for attorney general, was one of
the most bigoted oppoeers of any change
in the compulsory education law in the
rat.t legislature. The law will be
amended by the Democrats next winter,
but if lie should happen to be elected at
torney general, his position would be
used to defeat any attempt to make any
change in its provisions.
Candidate Parey intimates that no man
of the war age who did not serve his
country in the late unpleasantness, is
fit to hold public office. This hurts the
tender feelings of candidate Pearson,
who was just the right age for a soldier,
but who preferred to stay at home and
get rich. There is a consequent coldness
between two wings of the state house.
Candidate Pearson has about suc
ceeded in proving that his predecessor,
