Fridat. March 10, 1893.
According to this morning's Union
the candidacy of T. J. Medill, Jr.,
does not meet with the approbation
of the republicans. The morning
paper would much prefer to name the
candidate, it is quite apparent, but
the democrats have not been in the
habit of letting out their nominations
A GEXit s in Oregon has invented a
modification of the bicycle, which he
appropriately christens the skycycle,
tvith which he expects to skim the
air at any distance above ground he
chooses at a speed of forty or more
miles an hour. The bibycle with
wings will enable its rider to fly high
and cut the air without danger from
headers, and a parachute attachment
protects against too sudden a descent
to terra tirma.
Teoria Herald: Secretary of State
Gresham, in appointing Josiah
Qnincy, of Massachusetts, as assis
tant secretary of state, has made a
move of much political significance.
During the recent campaign Mr.
Quincy was the manager of the dem
ocratic literary bureau, a position
that brought him into close relation
ship with most of the democratic
leaders. Thus he has had an excel
lent opportunity to judge of the abil
ity and fitness of the men who fig
ured prominently in the campaign,
and when consular appointments are
to be made he will be in a position to
appoint competent men and keep the
drones at home.
As for Mr. Gresham. he has no en
emies to punish and no friends to re
ward. He has chosen as his lieuten
ant a democrat of national reputation
as a thorough-going tariff reformer
and business man. It may be pre
dicted confidently that as the months
go by it will be shown more and more
clearlv that Mr. Cleveland's appoint
ment of Judge Gresham was an ex-J
ceptionally good move and exception- j
ally good politics.
It is estimated that fully 60,000
visitors to Washington called upon
and shook hands with President
Cleveland on Monday. The line
formed in the morning reached from
the-cxecutive mansion to the Cor
coran building, seven hundred yards
distant. In the afternoon there was
a similar throng, and the president-
did not leave his post until the ushers
reported the last caller had been ad
mitted and presented in the east
room. Mrs.- Cleveland and Baby
Ruth were interested spectators of
the scene. A Washington dispatch
Mrs Cleveland looked on an in
terested spectator from one of the
second-storv windows of the execu
tive mansion at the immense crowd
which at 2 o'clock for the second time
entered to the outer gates waiting
admission to shake hands with the
president in the east room. From
the second-story window, directly
over the entrance door, under the
portico, the nurse stood holding
Baby Ruth, who evinced the greatest
delight in the crowd, clapping her
hands and laughing at the attention
the created. The netf s that the baby
was one of the on lookers from the
White house windows spread rapidly,
and many of those who, after patient
waiting had attained a prominent
place in line, quickly abandoned it
in order to see the president's little
Judge (jresliam's Uemocracy.
There has been a great deal of dis
cussion among the newspapers as to
Judge Gresham's jxdities. Most of
the anti-Cleveland democratic papers
and all the republican papers have
maintained that the new secretary of
state is still a republican. Our judg
ment as an independent looker-on is
that the judge is now a democrat and
that he is entitled to a share in the
honors and rewards which may fall
to that party in the future.
In proof of this we may cite the ap
pointment of Josiah Quincy to the
position of assistant secretary of
state. Mr. Quincy is not only a dem
ocrat, but he is a Jacksonian demo
crat who believes in the theory that
to the victor belongs the sjwils. He
was in Mr. Cleveland's campaign
committee, and it 'was his hand that
prepared all those burning denuncia
tions of republicanism that were dis
tributed through Mr. Wanamaker's
postofiice last fall. He will have to
appoint the consuls for the next four
years and he will not stint the hun
gry and thirsty pilgrims of democra
cy who stray across the threshold of
the state department.
So Judge Gresham evidently agrees
with us on the question of his own
democracy. We congratulate him.
REORGANIZING THE SENATE.
Gorman's Committee Not Making; Very
Washington, March 9. The members of
the Democratic caucus committee were in
session yesterday six and a half hours, and
then adjourned without completing the
task,of making up the committee lists.
The next meeting will be held subject to
the call of Gorman. Some headway ha
been made, but the committee has only
began to see its way clear to the successful
performance of the work that 1b before it.
One thing that can be stated with poeltive
ness is hat nothing has yet been done in
the matter of the elective officers of the
Friendly Committee. Deelred.
la view of the many conflicting interests
involved in the matter of important chair
manships the work of reorganizing will
probably, be slow. All the presidential
nominations that will be made soon will
have to be referred to committees before
final action. The Republican committees
still exist, but the Democrats feel that it
is essential that they stiall be passed upon
by friendly committees, instead of being
treated by the committees as at present
constituted with Republican majorities.
The caucus committee feels bound, how
ever, to hasten the progress of its work, for
even when the list of the majority member
ship of committees is completed it must be
submitted to the Republican caucus com
mittee in order that the remaining places
may be filled.
Nominations Mint Wait the New Deal.
A prominent member of the caucus com
mittee said yesterday afternoon that until
the senate was organized, at least so far as
the committees were concerned, there will
be no action upon any nominations the
president might send in. For this reason
it was imperative that the caucus commit
tee should do its work as fast as possible.
The Republicans are resting on their oars
simply awaiting final action by the Demo
crats. After they have been made ac
quainted with the intentions . of the ma
jority Mr. Allison's committee will re
sume its labors and endeavor to provide
for those Republicans who are entitled to
Congratulated by the Pope.
Washington, March 9. One of the
earliest callers at the White House yester
day was Dr. O'Gorman, assistant rector of

papal legate to America, congratulating
Cleveland on his accession to the presidency

MUTUAL SOCIETIES SAE.
Johnson's Hill Recommitted Other Work
of the Illinois Legislature.
Springfield, March 0. Johnson had
his mutual benefit societies bill recommit
ted in the senate yesterday, and it will
probably not be heard of again. The bit!
for coupons on Australian ballots was
passed, and that providing for inspection
of building and loan associations ordered
to third reading. The same action was
taken with the bill requiring
foreign similar associations to file
bond for $100,000. The resolutions
for an investigation of the charges against
the late officers of .Toliet penitentiary were
passed. C. A. Warren, a Chicago insur
ance man, was excluded from the floor by
a vote of 27 to 7 for statements made in an
interview. Bills were introduced appro
priating $250,(KX for machinery for Joliet
peniteutiary and $100,000 for expenses, and
prohibiting public warehousemen from
speculating in grain.
Foul Selling To lie Prohibited.
The house sent to third reading a bill
absolutely prohibiting pool selling any
where and any time. Bills appropriating
for Joliet penitentiary similar to the senate
bills were introduced. Nearly the whole
day was taken up trying without success
to reconsider the defeat of a till to pave
the streets around the state house.
Notaries to Wed People.
MaiIsox, Wis., March 9. In the assem
bly petitions were received in opposition to
the bill for a general game law which has
been approved by the state fih and game
warden, and also against the employment
of Pinkertou men iu this state. The bill
authorizing notaries public to perform
marriage ceremonies was reported back fa
vorably by the committee. Bills were
passed authorizing incorporated cities and
villages to acquire title to real estate out
side their corporate limits; regulating the
terms of the circuit courts; making di
plomas from universities and colleges a
license to teach school without the counter-signature
of the state superintendent;
regulating the booming of logs.
