KJ03 Second Avcuue.
Chicago H-erald of Saturday
has.an exendud rkic!ern the deifco
cfali'ficinf lidaM;4tt Illinois for; Sen
atof OuiloW's seat.' It says: " '
The question as to who will be
eleetert United States nenator from
Illinois to succeed Shelby. M. Cullom.
whose term will expire March 4.
1895, is being generally discussed
among the politicians. The demo
crats are giving it the most attentio n,
of course, because it seems to be
conceded that if the unexpected
should happen, to-wit, the control of
the next legislature by the republi
cans. Senator Cullom" Avould be his
own successor. But it is regarded
as practically a certainty that the
Thirty-ninth . reneral assembly.
to be elected jnextj tear, will be "a
democratic' body. Xlider the-vlan
of apportionment adopted by the
last legislature. the democrats
can1 hardly fail to have a
legislative majority at Springfield
wlien the next United States senator
is chosen. Their leaders are con
fident of a majority in both houses
of the general assembly, and j-they
expect the democratic majority o"ri
joint ballot to be anxfvhere frteiB 15
After the democracy achieved its
magnificent victory last November
little attention 'was I bestowed upon
state politics until the United States
senatorship came up for considera
tion. The success of the democratic
apportionment bill in the l:it legis
lature, carrying' with' it thi assur
ance of democratic!', control In the
next general assembly, has encour
aged a number of democrats to put
themselves into line, as far as possi
ble, for promotion to the United
States senate. Among thoe who
have been prominently, mentioned"
or aggressively pushed by their
friends for the distinguished posi
tion are Gov. John P. Altgeld. (ien.
John C. Black and Mayor Carter II.
Harrison, of this city; ex-Congressman
Hen T. Cable, of Rock Island;
Judge Aidlrciv J. Hunter, of Faris;
ex-Cungresman W. K. Morrison, of
Waterloo; Congressman W. S. For
man. of Nashville, and Uelos P.
Phelps, of Monmouth. Of the fore
going it may be said on good author
ity that Congressman, Formaniwill
not lie a candidate under any circum
stances if Col. Morrison wants, the
place, and, on the same authority, it
mav be added that neither Judge
Hunter nor Mr. Phelps is likely to
enter the contest.
Hen. T. '.i'lo Looming Vp.
The soul hern Illinois denlocracv
has always heartily and unanimously
supported Colonel Morrison, and it
expected to tlo so m Ine campaign
of next rear. But it is not altojreth-
r certain that this expectation will
be realized. A new ligure has ap
peared above the political horizon in
the person of Ben T. Cable, of Rock
Island, and this young man, who as
tonished the entire country by his
masterly management of the national
democratic campaign in the north
west last year, is now sharing with
its former idol. Colour! ilorrison.the
admiration of the Egyptian'Tlemoc
racv. , - i i . ' " :
A prominent Qwincy democrat ves-
terdav expressed the situation in AdJ
Iama ctmnry with respect ro Morrison
and Cable as follows: ... - ,
"Bill Morrison- haSs,htvafsHH1eri
xtpular in Adams count y," and' 1 sup
pose if things were permitted to take
their course the old-time leaders
could jv-hiui th- comity's vote m f")
the state etuvennon mxt ycarjuf
United States senator. But the
young democrats down mere are
very tond of len (..aide. Jo tea you
the'truth. I have heard among Ad-
ams county tjemocrats uuring.Jiie
past montlf more expressions favora
ble to Cable than Mornsou for he
senate. If Cable wants to be the next
United Stiftes senator and make a
fight for Adams county I shall not be
surprised if Ue carries it." ; . .
As a rule Morrison s menus claim
to believe that Cable will not be a
candidate against the Egyptian.
Some of tliem r so fir as' to assert
that he will support Morrison and do
a? he can to elect the latter. They
base this assertion on two grounds:
One, that Cable has always been
friendly to Morrison and '.would sin-
aerelvflike to see him goi to the sen
ate. The other, that it would be
good politics for Cable to help elect
Morrison. Thev say - that by -so' do-
in"- he . would make himself solid
with the democrats of southern Illi
nois and that he would thereby, pave
the way to the senate for himself iu
1890 as the successor of Oen. i'aimer.
It seems to be taken for 'granted on
alii hands that Gen. Palmer Will not
ask for another term, thoujrh why
this conclusion is sq readily reached
is not apparent. ; ......
There is an impression, even out
side of Morrison's adherents, that
Cable is not in a hurry to cro to the
United Statc-s senate. Some men
who believe that he could, if he de
sired, succeed Cullom, say that he
would prefer .to wait awhiie. He is
younrr and he is"hot in politics alto
gether on his own account. His
present ambition, they say, is to
make Illinois a reliable democratic
sti-te. and that is urged as a reason
for his so-called interference with
the distribution of federal patronage
in Chicago -
: May Be the Warwick of the Situation.
l it is evident that, Whether he is
himself a candidate for United States
senator or not,' Mr. Cable is going, to
be an important factor in the con
test.! lid probably has it in his power
to become the. Warwick of the next
senatorial campaign, so far as nam
ing the democratic candidate is con
cerned. ' If he does not ' want the
prize for himself he can probably de
cide who shall haVe it. His attrac
tive personality, his amiability, his
devotion to his friends and his
energetic efforts for party! success
have given him a hold upon the
masses not often acquired in politics
by a man of his years. .
! All the men who are actually long
ing to go to the federal senate would
make any reasonable sacrifice to se
cure Cable's support. Carter Harri
son, fur instance, would regard his
election as a certainty if he could be
assured that Cable favored his candi
dacy. But it cannot be ascertained
that the ex-congressman from Bock
Island has given anybody an indica
tion as to who will be his favorite
among the aspirants, provided he
does not want to go to the senate
himself. There is plenty of time for
him to decide in w hose interest his
influence will be exerted. But the
people who staml close to him say he
Will not faror a Chicago' man in "this
contest. If it should be decided that
Chicago is to have the senatorship,
Mr. Cable may put in a claim for it
himself. ' : 1 '.
