A PL Al IMPOSITION.
Committeeman Cable's Interest
in Illinois Politics.
A DUTY HE OWES THE STATE.

It is a characteristic of National
C'oinmitteem:.!! Ii,. T. C'ahli-'s nature
to keep his mm eounsel. He knows
whereof he stands before he moves,
and when lie acts it is with firmness
and decision 1 1 nt brings success.
He is not piv-n to making anv noise
about what li ; does, un.t wLil'e lie at

does so with no less stiecessful re
sults. For some time Mayor Carter
Harrison ha- been systematically
ai.usuisr Mr. Cable through the col
UUins of hi; paper, the Chicago
Times. He I. as sought viporoiislv to
lessen the inl uence of Illinois' mem
ber of the national committee in
various ways, but (.'hieapoV ambi
tious mayor las undertaken a bipper
task than he is eijital to, and, not
withstanding his pretended igno
rance as to ti e part of the state Mr.
Cable lives in. In- will find that then
is no quarter of the state in which
the hitter is lot well and favorably
known w hen it comes to a showdown.
However. Mr. Cable has found pa
. - ... i .
in in i no junker a virtue in uie case
of Mr. Harrison's attitude toward
him and he 1 as spoken, as witness
the following from the Chieaffo
lb-cord of ye-terday. under Washing
ton date line:
Calite'H ( ontplitiiriit .
The Hon. lien T. Cable conveys his
compliments and assurances of dis-tiiipui.-hed
ei iisideration to the Hon.
Carter Harr son. of Chicago. This
will be surprising to many, particu
larly the po itieians, who have ob
served of lat a verv deep and con
stantly wide linp; pull' between these
two democratic leaders. It has
reached an a Mite staire ilurinp the re
cent strife for federal ollices in Chi

Mr. Harrison has been doin all the
open liirhtinp and Mr. Cable has
successfully played the sphinx. The
mayor has t: Iked out in person and
h:is Used the columns of his paper to
belabor Cal lc. 'l'he bitterness of
some of t In- nia vol's assault s on the
Cable-Morrison-Fi if man com bin at ion
inpeiieral. and on Cab'e in particu
lar, has heei the talk oi the Illinois
circle in Wa -hinpton for some davs.
It was repar b-d as a threat that the
Harrison force-. epeited to hurt
some one if he dial not keep awav
from Chicago pai rotiae. The mayor
has. characterized Cable a-an intru
der in the : ITaiis of Chicapo. He
has called h in a --political waif." an

lie has laugl ed at them to his friends.
He has not said a word until tonight.
w hen he consented to give the Hoc
ord a brief leplv to Mr. Harrison
statements, iior-onal and editorial.
At the outsit he complimented the
mayor as a lighter w ho never gave
tiuarter to an opponent.
P.ut wha is the trouble with Car

deuce outside of Chicago. lie seems
to forget that as the Illinois member
bf the demo -ratic national commit
tee a man's functions are not con
fined to his ow n home in the southern
or northern part of the state, but are
propel 1 v fxi rcised in every part of
the state. He appears to overloiik
the fact. also, that in the work as
signed to mi in the national cam
paign last fall my field of labor was
nordesipnated a-' the southern part
of the state.
A l'rivllese and u Hiity.
'The fact is. I regard it
onlv a privilege, but a duty,
national con mitteeman of a
make such suggestions to th
limit ns lll'iv seem to him to be best
for the partv interests concerning,
fetferal appo "nttnents throughout the'
state. I have vet to learn liiat any one
has the dem icracv of Chicapo in his
special keep ng. 'it has struck me
as something new to regard the na
tional committeeman as an intruder
in the finish oration of fei.eral pat -
ronage of any part of the state. iut
Mr. Harrison lias either overlooked
the fact that this position was con
ferred upon me at the last democrat
ic national c invention or is ignorant
of it. 1 don t know w hy he insists
upon considering me as an cx-con-prcssman
or as a private citizen of
the southern part of the state. As
such I have no more tdesire
to advise concerning appoinments
than anv otl er private citisen. It is
only as'the national committeeman
of the state that I have ever under
taken to advise as to appointments.
And why should not that be done?
Do not the campaign duties of a na-
tional committeeman acquaint him
with those members of the party who
have served it? I think they do, and
such advice as I have given has been
due to some familiarty with the hard
work of the campaign, at Chicago
and radiating from t hat point, that
helped to secure the democratic vic
tory last November. Let me add
that any recommendations I have
made as to candidates have been
mainly in the way of information.
If the worthy mayor will look over
the indorsements of Chicago men I
have made he w ill find that they have
the backing of democratic leaders
of the city and of the men who bore
the brunt" of the liht last fall."

A Novel l'rin-i dure.
The action of the jury in the ease
of .1. .1. Froeliger vs. Thomas ISyan
tried in Justice Hawes" court yester
day in demanding their fees before
returning a verdict, as noted last
night, is one of the most novel pro
. . .... . ,
cee ungs mat lias ever instanced
justice court proceedings. "Souire
Hawes was obliged to pav the jury
before a verdict was forthcoming, and
in reprimanding the jurors for their
action, he declared that it was the
lirst occurrence of the kind in is
vear's experience in a justice ollice.
It is doubtful i'' the jury can be
blamed howe i-r. after all. It has
been the custom of constables in
selecting piries for police court trials
to pick up business men and com
pel them to serve, as was tne case
yesterd.iv when one was obliged to
lock up his place of business and go
in his shirt sleeves to the justice of
fice, and then when tin- trial is over
the jurors take their cha'ncT-s on re
muneration often times failing to get
the small stipulation allowed by law.
While the justices are not to blame
in such cases as they have no means
of paying tlii1 jurors, they will be
more apt hereaPler to see that costs
are guaranteed by litigants before
proceedings are commenced.

No Trace of the Swindlers of Supervisor

The confidence men who swindled
Supervisor Henry S. Case, of South
Rock Island, out of $2,500 Tuesday
afternoon, have probably made good
their escape, as all trace of them dis
appeared with the leaving of the rig
belonging to Wadsworth's livery sta
ble at Orion. The note from one the
pair to Wadsworth stated that the
outfit would be found at the Orion
livery stable, where a 10-dollar note
would also lie found for the use of it,
and that if there were any more char
ges they would be paid when the wri

Wadsworth left this moruing on the
