The papers 'throughout the state
are discussing the availability of
democratic candidates for Senator
Cullom's senatorial toga before the
next legislature which it is conceded
will supplant the long Iifed Cullom.
It will be remembered that shortly
after the-presidential election of last
fall, the local friends of Hon. Ben T.
Cable announced their determina
tion of sending him to the United
States senate from' Illinois, even
as they had sent' him to congress two
years before, and it appears very
plainly that the sentiment in Mr.
Cable's belialf is not. confined to his

Chicago Record said the other day:
Cable, of Illinois, is aandidate for
the United States senate to succeed
Senator .Cul'om. There is no longer
any doubt oi that pointy Mr. Cable
has made no formal announcement of
the fact, for he is not the kind of pol
itician to -go about beating drums
prematurely. But during "his fre
quent visits" lereof late his close con-'
gressional associates have been made
funy aware c f his plans and purposes.
These gentl jmen comprise some of
the cleverest political workers in Illi
nois. They make no secret of the
fact of Mr.. Cable's .candidacy, and

senatorial contest "before the state

adopted by Senator Palmer, and it
will also be f flowed by Senator Cul

The Cable men have many elements
of strength. Cable himself has given
rus entire tin e ana very considerable
sums of ni'ney to the democratic
canse during the last year. As
chairman of ttic western brance of the
national comr littee he is given a good
share of the credit for carrying Illi
nois and Wis?onsin last tall. Since
then he has labored almost incessant
ly t Washington to secure federal
places for Il.inois candidates. He
has maintain d a private office here
with a force of clerks and has worked
so persistently that- he has accom

results than :ill the Illinois congres

Almost cvtrvone in Washington
supposes that Mr. Cable is a con
gressman, although his term ended
four months ago. He is seen so
much around the departments and
at the white h use that nine-tenths
of the congressmen take it for grant
ed that he is one of them. He is
given the same privileges every
where. h.ven the Illinois congress
men consult h m in all their move
ments to secure patronage and he
has become a sort of leader and
pokesman for quite a large number
the democratic congressmen of Illi
nois. He seems to secure oflice's for
his friends by the shfer persistency
with which he keeps at everything
lie undertakes. It has been this dis
play of energy during the last four
months which has developed and
made certain 1 is candidacy for the
United States senate.
The McDonough Democrat repro

Anybody win knows Mr. Cable,
knows that what is said above is true.
That he never tires until success is
had, or defeat assured, and to the
recollection of the Democrat he has
suffered no deleats of late. He is al
ways energetic, never tires in his la-
bors for his fr'ends, and does what a
great many politicians do not, he
kqeps his word with his friends in a
political promise, as well as acy oth

'One marked cifference between the

is that the latter buy their clothing of
tailors and manu 'acturers, and therefore
get it new, while the English poor, and
particularly the English women of low
estate, prefer the castoff finery of ."the

mission, which is a feature of the east

a wealthy family of brewers. About 17
years ago heAiegan to do a sort of street
missionary work in East London, near
his father's brewery. His father threaV

him a 6hare, though not a full share, in
the business. Onoe, on being taunted
n the street with wearing the blue rib-
bon-r "What does it cost you to-wear
that ribbon?" be was able to reply,
? A hundred thousand dollars."
He sold ontis interest in the brewery
to his brothers and built in Mile End
road, the prolongation of Whitechapc l,
the Great Assembly hall, which had been
projected but never begun by Keith
Falconer. Every Sunday night 3,000 or

leutarkabia Tenacity of Life.
- Th4 pious Dr. Shircly Palmer tells a
fish story that is calculated to make the
menilxra of the St. Louis Hunting and
Fishing association (to use a strictly
original expression) "turn green with
envy." By eovio hook or crook hook
no doubt Mr. Palmer came into pos
session of a fin brace of tench. They
were a lively pair of f.r.ny beauties when
the doctor took them home with the idea
of slaughtering them for his Sunday din
ner. Placing them in r. pail of water, he
pni them into the larder ailiT thought no
more about tho matter. That night at
midnight he was aroused, so he says, by
a groan proceeding from the aforesaid
larder. Inspection of the room explainod
the mystery. -
One of the fish had sprung f rom $in
basin or pail and lay gasping upon the
floor, every now and then uttering
sounds similar to those which had dis
turbed Mr. Palmer. Next day both fi:A
were prepared for dinner, but such was
their tenacity of life that both, after bar
ing undergone the process of scaling ar d
evisceration, sprang from tho pan and
wriggled about on the floor as though
they had but recently ben removed from
their native element.
This is told as a scientific fact, not as
a "fish story" or in the way of a joke.
