They show, however, that the lone

Ordinarily democratic qunrrels in
this countv have been of little con-
corn to the general public and have
involved no great questions of im
portance. 1 lie preseLt contention,,
however, is. given dignitv bv the
fact that the democracv is now in
trenched in the natir nal, state anil
local offices, and it : mounts to a
quarrel not only among local loaders.
but among the ofheials of the several
branches, of government. , . Tho real
bone of ...contention is.tlu1 United
States seiiatorship. . .
The olliee of goven or of Illinois
has been looked on for years by am
bitions politicians as ni ante. room of
the United 'States seriate. Gov. Alt
geld now holds to the belief that he
is the logical heir to a seat in con
gress. Ilowever, the policy of the
democratic party has been to de
nounce the practice of making sena
tors of governors before the expira
tion of their terms. Gt v. Altgeld is,
therefore, estopped from aspiring to
tho position now occupied bv Senator
Kiit. while the governor thinks that 1
he may not properly as;ire to be the
successor of Senator Cullom. he looks
forward liopeftillv to tl,e possibility
of succeeding Senator Palmer, whose
term will expire Mar.'h 4. ISilT, a
date following the expiration of the
official term of Gov. Altgeld. His
ambition to succeed Senator Palmer
has caused an estrangement between
the democratic senator and '.lie gov
ernor, luis reeling lias been shown
by tlve determined efforis of Senator
Palmer to pi event the apiwiintinont
to federal ollices by President Cleve
land of persons who -have the sup
port of friends of Gov. Altgeld.
' Gov. Altgeld being out of the race
for Senator Cullom' sat. and the
senatorship by geographical rule be
longing to Chicago, the situation e.
temls an invitation if any invitation
was needed lor Mayor Harrison to
enter the race. The nityor is now
endeavoring to capture t :ie party out
osts with a view to cot trolling the
delegation from this cot nty to next
year's state convention, '.vhicli in all
probability will nominat: the party's
candidate for United States senator.
Should Mayor llarriso i succeed in
attaining the position I ow held by
Senator Cullom, Chicago would then
have the senator that is its duo, and
Gov. Altgeld being a Chicagoan, could
not hope to succeed Senator Palmer.
This state of things ha tended to
create au alliance between the forces
of Palmer, such as they are. and the
forces of Harrison, who is likely to
be potent in Cook county. This
combination is formed t make Har
rison and Palmer the representatives
of Illinois in tho .United States sen
ate'. '1 ' '
Somr doubt has oxisteti as to whom
Gov. Altgeld and his allii . desired to
elect to the United Slates senate in
place of Senator On lion . The sup
position has been that an alliance ex
ists between the governor and Col.
William H. Morrison. 15 it the truth
is that at this time the incli
nation of the Altgeld fiction is to
ward ex-Congressman Pen jam in T.
Cable, of Pock Island. To this ar
rangement, it is understood. Col.
Morrison willingly assenis. That he
should do so is accounted for by a
conjecture that he cxpec s to obtain
the support iu the Illinois delegation
for president in 1XIM5. '1 he nomina
tion for governor will b at the dis
posal of the successful allies, and
thistoo, may be given 'o southern
Illinois. That .would even up things
geograpieally should Gov. Altgeld be
nominated for United States senator.
The strife now beginning in the
democratic party of Illinois is not
likely to end until thes questions
have been fought out ami settled.
