CABLE'S CLEVER WORK.
Tils Victory in the Name of Snow The
When ex-Congressman Snow, of
this state, was clectcil sergeant-at-arms
of the house of representatives.
The Aitius could discern that the
fine hand of Hon. Hen T. Cable had
something; to do with Snow's suc
cess. Now, he is receiving credit
for his clever political work. A spe
cial from Washington to the Chicago
Post of Monday, has the following
regarding Snow's election, and the
part Mr. Cable played in it:
Ben Cable, by his victory in the
name of Snow, has set another feath
er in his cap. It was one of tin
neatest pieces of work ever done in
politics. And yet there was nothing
underhanded about it. and neither
was any ofliee of importance prom
ised. It was the sort of work which
politicians of the old school would do
well to study and imitate. With the
exception of postage and stationery
bills, no money was spent to prose
cute the campaign. Not only was
there no brass bands about it. but
there wast not even a single trumpet.
And yet the canvass was apparently
open and in plain view of everybody.
The trouble was that it was so open
the enemy did not believe it
amounted to anything. The canvas-,
was done scientifically. The feeling
and opinions of every democratic
representative were known not
guessed at. but known almost a
week before the election. It was
known how the majority stood a full
month before the election. Those
members who were pledged out and
out to the enemy were not bothered.
Those who were villin-j: to pledge
themselves to Snow were watched to
ee that the enemy did not steal them
away, and those who were on the
fence were cajole.! in true siren fash
ion until, not beinir tied to their po
sitions, they left their perch and
jumped into the Snow camp. There
they were treated in such pleasant
ways that they had no desire to
leave. The indorsement of the
enemy by Tarn many Hall did not
even stitiice to draw them out of the
Snow camp. They were well satis
lied with their surrounding and now
they are glad they remained.
The Post in fact shows with what
significance Mr. Cable's triumph is
received by coupling the event thus:
Two occurrences of the past 10 davs
besides the silver light have caused
a great deal of discussion here. And
the discussion is still iroinir on. One
is the revolt of Cockrell and Cu tu
rnings against the dictates of Tam
many: the other, Ben Cable's secur
ing the election of Sergeant-at-Arms
Snow. Both occurrences were un
looked for; hence the discussion they
The above confirms the assertion
heretofore made of Mr. Cable's influ
ence in the affairs of the nation.
Spangler i sure.
A special from Washington says:
"Spanrler will be appointed collec
tor of internal revenue in Chicago.
There is no doubt about it. But it is
possible that no appointment will be
made in that ofliee or in some of the
other great offices much before
Christmas."' In this very positive
statement ex-Congressman Cable, of
Illinois, who is more nearfy the boss
of appointments iu that state than
any one who has thus far appeared,
spoke of the probable action of the
president in the matter of the inter
nal revenue offices in Chicago. The
statement as to this ofliee has cjual
force as to all of the other unfilled im
portant offices of the country. Mr.
Cable is not a rash talker, and when
he makes a statement as positive as
this about the probable action of the
president, there is reason to believe
that he has some foundation for his
assertions. At all events, it is not
noticed that any of the friends of Mr.
Tuohig speak with anv such confi
dence of the certainty of the presi
dent s actions.
The statement of Mr. Cable that
the appointment may not be made
mini next jicccmtxT is an ominous
"one for the office-seeker. But it is in
line with the suggestion of others
who have the confidence of Cleveland
have made as to the method which
the president wili be likely to follow
in making the rest of the appointments.

.,.,o Feople Still Blow Out tne Ga.
The following is what a hotal man says:
I venture to assert, without fear of contra
diction, that for every death from asphyx
iation in my hotel during the past five
years 1 or my employees have rescued 23
persons who would certainly have died if
we had not been on the alert. We are in
deed always on the lookout for guests who
think they are doing right when they blow
out the gas. Only a few nights ago I dis
covered as I passed through my hall a
strom; smell of gas and traced it to a room
where a man and his little child had been
assigned but a few hours before. The door
was soon burst open, and two uneonse ious
forms were found in a peaceful repose,
which would have ended in de.it h if the
discovery had been made two hours later.
When the man was resuscitated, I asked
him what he meant by turning the gas on
after it had lieen put out.
"I'll give you my word, sir," he said
earnestly, "that 1 blew the pis out and
didn't touch the pipe afterward."
When I told him what a mistake he had
made and what a lucky escape he had
had, his joy was unbounded, and between
his sobs aud exulting cries of joy lie hugged
and caressed the little loy with him, who
was just coming out from the effects of the
gas, as if r.U heaven was his at that moment.
If you will take the trouble to visit the
other larjje hotels of lioston in which gas is
used in the rooms, 1 think you will find the
ratio of rescues to deaths is at least 2o to L
You seldom hear of a rescue, but invariably
learn of a death. Boston Herald.
