While nearly evety Hcpublican claims
tho nest House, yet very few Democrats
can bo found who will give up all hope.
A number of Democratic Members havo
said to an Evening Post reporter that It
will rcriuiro a recount to determine the
distiicls in which dispute!, have arisen.
And whether tho House is Democratic
or Republican it will bo only by n very
slender majo'ilty.
Owing to tho number of seats that will
bo contested for a very interesting ques
tion has como tip within the past few
days concerning tho oiganization of tho
House.
If tho Democrats in the doubtful and
disputed districts are glvon the certitt
cates of election, Ocneial Clark, Cleik of
tho House, can not do otherwise than
acknowledge tho ceitlllcatu, nnd thus
tho Democrats will havo a small major
ity, and can oignnUe tlio House.
If the Democrats should havo tho or
ganisation of the Houso and by death or
tho unseating of ouo or two of tho mem
bers (which is not, accoidlne to Mr.
Ilyan of Kansas, in tho range of proba
bilities, I. c, unseating a Democrat by a
Democratic Houso) they should become
the minority,tko llopublicans would then
bo in the contiol of tho House, but its
organization would still bo Dcmociattc.
Now tho question that is agitating tho
mind of tho members is this: The organ
ization of tho House being Democratic,
what good would tho nujoiity bo to tho
Republicans, provided thoy obtain it as
stated auover
TIIF.Y CANNOT DECIDE.
Congressman Sayers of Texas, when
asked what ho thought of it, declined to
express an opinion. Dut, In a general
talk ou tho subject with sovcral oftlcials
of the House, no ono could answer tho
question. An examination of tho rules
of that body failed to throw much addi
tional light on tho question.
There was, howovor, a provision for
tho removal of tho Speaker at any time
by thcHonsoifMjd.tbo appointment of a
Speaker pro tern. Tliu standing com
mittt'ciffWoappnhitcd for tho Congress
and cannot bo changed. Tho first mem
ber of a committee is lognrdcd as tho
chairman, but tho mcmbeis of tho ccm
mitteo havo the power to select any ono
of their number to bo chairman.
Tho question is exciting a gi cat deal
of interest and thcio is a slight possi
bility that it may confront tho Houso In
tho beginning of tho Fifty-first Congress.
Of course, very foiV persons can bo
found who will admit that there Is
enough political honesty In cither party
to unseat ono or two of their own mem
bers In order that tho other- fellow may
occupy tho seat to which ho was elected,
especially wheu such a proceduro might
place tho opposition In the majority.
WHAT -Mil. SPIUNOKR HAS 10 HAY.
Congicssman Springer of Illinois, in
nnswor to a question from an Kvuninci
l'osr reporter, said that tho defeat of the
Democratic party was duo to the Repub
licans' perfect organization and unlimited
resources. He doesn't think tho Repub
licans will pass any tariff legislation this
session. ''If tho Republicans," said he,
"keop their promises and pass tho Do
ncudeiit Pension bill, tho Arreais Pen
sion bill, tho Scrvieo Pension bill, tho
Direct Tax bill, tho Coast Defense bill
and sovcinl other bills, npmopiiating
money, tbcto will bo ndellclt of $1,000,
000,000 in tho Treasury instead of a
surplus."
TUB WIOBAIII.K LIMISI.ATION.
The talk most indulged. in has been
about counting lallroad tics and the con
dition tho road will bo In just after tho
'inauguration. Tho general opinion Iu
rrtoreuce to tlio legislation ot tliu snort
session is that tho timo will bo taken up
piincipally in tho discussion and nassngu
of tho appropriation bills, with u day or
two set apart for tho consideration of
bills reported from committees,
omo solid ron m'kini.uy.
Congressman M. M, Doothmnu of Ohio
lias arrived in tho city. As lie called at
tho Houso Postofllco for ids mail ho said:
"I'll bet that these two letters nro appli
cations for postolllces." And sure enough
they were. "I can always tell, bocauso
tlio applicant incloses u stamp for loply."
In speaking of tlio organization of tho
next Houso, ho said that tho Ohio dele
gation was with ouo accord fof Mclvinloy
for Speaker. "Wo havo. no second
choice; wo aro all McKinloy men."
Mr. Doothman has a high opinion of
Ocneial Hanisou's abilities. "Harri
son," said he, "will bo tho Picstdont of
tho United States, and will givo tho peo
plo a thoroughly Amurlcan lulminlstia
tlon, Hu is liioud and liberal minded,
and will icllect credit on tho choice made
by tho people"
Tiin env vo-irprFcn qumstiom.
Congrchsman James D. Richardson of
Tonnessco, who Introduced in tho Houso
last session tho bill providing for tho ap
pointment of a commission to select n
cite for a city postolllco building was at
tho Canitol to-day attending to his cor
respondence when an Kvi:nino Post io
porter broko In on him with: "Do tho
citizens of tlio District get a postolllcu
building this ycaiV"
"1 hope so; 1 know that I am going to
do all In my power to secure one"
"I low about tho bill you introduced
towaid tho closo of last session. Do you
think It will pibs- tho Houso this

"I feel prclty confident that If I can
get rccounUcu to call tho bill up, It
will pass, and pass by a largo majoilty,
if not unanimously. It muht bo hu.

WASHINGTON, SATJJUDAY EVBTSTDSTG, DEGBMBEU 1, 18S8.
the Nation has bcon petitioned for ycais
for a decent structure, and It would
seem that the people havo petitioned in
vain.
"1 havo heard Mcmbeis and Senators
say that it was a disgrace to Congress
to ullow such n slate of affairs to oxist.
I think the principal reason for not pass'
lug a nostolllcu bill has been tho Inability
of tho citizens to agree on n site. How

TUB niCIIAItnsON 1IILT, II IK ONLY HOIT!.
Tho leportor talked this morning with
qulto a number of Mcmbeis, and nil of
them ngico that It's only by tho passaco
of tlio Rlchnrdson bill that the citizens
of Washington can over boon for a post
ofllco. Congressman Hci man of Oregon
says the Houso ought to pass the Rich
ardson bill, and ought to pass It this
month.
"The present building," said he, "is a
disgiaco to the city, aim any one having
to go there could not but favor tlio pas
sago of a bill to elect a new building."
Congressman O.itus of Alabama said ho
had not examined tho Rlchaidson bill,
but hu hud no lietltancy In speaking out
in favor of u itiltablo postolllce building;
"It's ono ol tlio ci villi: needs of tho Cap
ital of tlio countiy."
Congressman A. C. Thompson of Ohio
is another member who huartily favors
the proposition to pass a bill that will
clvd the city a now postntllce. Ho would
liko to see work commenced on it at
once.
WHAT MU. OATES MEANT.
Congicssman Oates of Alabama said
this afternoon that In tho interview with
him published In tho morning Post ho
was misunderstood. He meant to say
that ho ngieed with tho two Scnatoi's
from Alabama that it would bo unconsti
tutional to pass the Chandler bill.
"I intended to say," he continued,
"that I thought the fc-enato could consti
tutionally amorid the election laws so as
to empower tho courts rtnd Fedeial Judges
to appoint supervisors of elections,
nnd tlioy (tho judges) 4belng gen
ei ally Republican, would appoint super
visors wherever desired by tho
Republicans. Under the present law
they can only bo nppolnted in places
where there is a population of 20,000 and
upwnid, oud from qualified olectorsof
the place. That may bo dispensed with
nnd nny voter of tho Stato mado eligible
for tho position of supervisor."

Ho is expected in this city this afternoon.
Mr. Randnll has been dovotlng from ono

where ho can bo conferred w ith nt any

been, has not impaired his intellectual
vigor, nor has it lessened his interest in
his responsible work as chairman of np
