for Spangler, bat Cable Italics the iarae.
The contest over the disposition of
Chicago federal patronage, which is
now going merrily on at Washing
ton, is attracting the attention of
IUinoisians generally, but outside of
Chicago there is no city in the state
where it is being watched more close
ly than in Rock Island'. Lo"al politi
cal interest is centered in the tight
from the fact that tin' Hon. Hen T.
Cable is taking such a prominent
part in it. Mr. Cable is earnestly
championing Rube Spangler, well
known here, for collector of internal
revenue, and the reports from Wash
ington are to the effect that lie is
making the hottest kind of a fight
for him. Those who know Mr. Cable
are not surprised at the vim and
tact which the popular Rock Islander
is displaying, but his generalship
and lighting qualities have surprised
the politicians at the national capi
tal, and some of his enthusiastic ad
mirers have dubbed him the "Voting
Napoleon of the West."
Looked Ilnrk for SpimcU-r.
A special to the Chieogo Post of. Sat
urday shows that Mr. Cable is not
daunted in the face of imminent de
feat, neither does he lose his head as
do many political generals in such a
crisis. As was reported from Wash
ington last week Tvvohig the oppos
ing candidate to Spangler was with
drawn dy Congressman Durborow,
and the name of James Townsend
substituted. Senator Palmer and the
entire Cook county congressional del
egation endorsed Townsend anil Sec
retary Carlisle even made out his ap
pointment and was about to send it
to the executive mansion for the
president's approval, when Mr. Cable
played a card that upset the whole
plan. The Post tells the story in the
following intertaining manner. how
ever: I'ut oil Hit Mettle.
Washington, Sept. 3D. Commis
sioner "Jimmy'" Townsend's jig is
up. and for that Hen Cable is respon
sible. Had Cable kept out of the wav
a few hours longer, or better still for
Townsend, had not some enterprising
Cable man wired his probable ap
pointment back here immediately af
ter he had read it in the Chieairo
Kvening Post of yesterday, his ap
pointment as collector of internal
revenue would have been sent in to
day. It was made out anil in a bun
dle to lie taken from the treasury de
partment to the White House for
President Cleveland's signature.
Cable was at the capitol when the
telegram, containing the news from
the Chicago Kvening Post was handed
to him. A moment later he was in a
cab whirling at full speed up Penn
sylvania avenue to the treasury de
partment. The elevator was ready
to start, but his legs were quicker",
and before the lift reached the secre
tary's lb or. Cable was speeding down
the corridor at a Nancy Hank's clip.
A moment later he was in a room
not a thousand miles awav from the
secretary's. In about three seconds
a Cablcite came quickly out. and af
ter a brief, swift walk disappeared in
Secretary Carlisle's room. He asked
the secretary a question. The secre
tary nodded. He then bent forward
ami talked earnestly for a half min
ute. The secretary listened and
when the Cableite finished saiil some
thing in a stage whisper which to a
man who wasn't paying any particu
lar attention sounded like. "The '1
you say." Then the secretary
reached for the bundle of appoint
ments ready for the president's sig
nature, extracted one from the bun
dle and opening a drawer dropped it
in, looked at the Cableite and re
"Guess I'll let it remain there un
til the ink gets drv, anyway."
Mr. Cable Kejolrinc;.
Then he smiled in a way that had
Commissioner Thownsend seen it
would have made his llesh crecn.
The Cableite smiled, too, left the of
lice and went back to the room where
Cable sat holding his breath. There
wen' a few whispered words, a grip
of the hand and Cable came out
breathing regularly again and wip
ing the presperation from his brow.
He didn't say anything, but he looked
as he did on a certain occasion a cou
ple of months ago, when, after a long
interview with the president, he went
to a friend and wringing out his perspiration-soaked
ulated: "Well, I didn't get my man in.
but I knocked the other fellows out."
The talismanic words which "held
up" Townsend's appointment are un
derstood to have been something like
"Jimmy Townsend is one of Mike
McDonald's employes and a Carter
That such words should have
prompted Secretary Carlisle to hold
up the appointment is not strange,
nor is it strange that President
Cleveland, when Secretary Carlisle
explained to him why he had done so,
approved of his action. The malign
influence of McDonald is universally
Jimmle's" Bad Record.
It was pointed out to Mr. Carlisle
that from the time of his entrance
into politics as a ward heeler and
bridgetender Townsend has been the
pupil and tool of McDonald or Harri
son or both of them. He lives in Mc
Donald's ward (the Eleventh), and
when the ex-boss was fighting Harri
son two years and a half ago, it was
Townsend who threw Harrison and
Adolph Kraus out of a polling booth.
The encounter tended to strengthen
Townsend in the present mayor's es
timation, and last spring he took the
ex-bridgetender fully back into the
fold. In return for votes in the Elev-
Lenth ward, a division of the fees of
t he oil inspectorship was compounded
for his benefit. Townsend is now en
joying part of these illegal fees, anil
it was hinted to the secretary that
the president might not feel comfort
able should the grand jury of Cook
county take it into its head to inves
tigate this illegal division of public
money with a view to criminal pros
ecution. Mr. Cleveland is not fond
of applicants who have a predilection
for laying themselves liable to crimi
Moreover. Townsend's whole polit
ical record was exposed. Mr. ('able
showed him to be a chronic office
seeker and office-holder. He was the
colleague of "Hull" Hurke in the leg
islature, ami he is now a west park
commissioner. On this presentation
Mr. Carlisle could not but decide to
hold back the appoint incut.
The turning down of "Jinnnic''
created a sensation in the Illinois
delegation today not an unpleasant
one. by any means, in some respects.
Hut it smashed the new slate, and
that didn't suit Durborow, Goldzier
and others. These gentlemen seem
to be quite willing to shove Mike's
queer candidate on the president if
in the juggle they can boost their
own place-hunters into snug berths.
Hut the jig is up with "Jimmie."
