The Most Itilliiciitlal .Mini in Con
The December Ainslec's Maga
zine contains an article by T,. A.
Coolidge on Senator Aldricb, who
is described as the most influential
man in Congress":
If one hundred American citizens
were to be asked to name the most
influential man in congress, ninety
nine of them would reply off-hnnd,
"The speaker of the house of rep
resentatives" and they would be
wrong. If by the most influential
man in congress is meant the one
who accomplishes the most, who
has most to do with shaping legis
lation, whose support of any parti
cular measure is of greatest value
the man who comes nearest to
meeting the definition is Nelson
W. Aldricb, a United States sena
tor from Rhode Island. The
speaker of the house is powerful; at
bis own end of the capitol his sup
remacy is unchallenged; but Aid
rich is greater than be. Aldricb
can handle the senate. Outside of
Washington not many people know
very much about Aldricb. There
are a dozen senators, at least, whose
names arc more familiar, and yet
any one of them will yield to Aid
rich on knowledge of what can be
done in the senate and how to do
it. "If I want to put a bill through
congress," said one of them, "I
bad rather talk with Aldricb than
with any other ten." He is a spe
cialist, lie knows the tariff from
A to Z, and there is no other matt
in cither branch of congress, now
that Diugley is dead, who can com
pare with him. There is no ques
tion vitally affecting business in
terests in which Aldricb is not
equally at home. lie is a business
man, and the great industries of
the country have learned to look
upon him as their special represen
tative. Aldricb is a master of all the
higher arts of the politician. He
understands people and motives
better than any other man in con
gress. He appreciates intuitively
where personal interests lie, and he
knows how to combine them.
There are half a dozen of the most
influential senators on the Demo
cratic side with whom Aldricb can
always talk understandingly.
When Gorman was in the senate
and was the master-mind on his
side of the chamber, it was always
easy for the two men to get to
gether, for they had many qualities
in common with this marked dif
ference, that Gorman had political
ambitious for himself, while Ald
ricb apparently has none. That is
how it happened that Aid
rich had so much to say about
the final shape which should
be assumed by the Wilson-Gorman
tariff act. What he did with a
Democratic senate on this great
question ol party policy be is con
stantly doing with the Democratic
minority on all sorts of questions
which have a business side. Aid
rich has never found it necessary to
attach himself to any faction in his
own party, and he has never de
pended in any way upon his ref
lations with the administration.
He has never been one of those
who frequented the White House.
He is independent of presidents,
lie has never been in need of feder.
al patronage whether in his own
state or to advance his schemes in
the senate, lie is sure of Rhode
Island anyway so long as he cares
to remain 111 congress, and he has
other means than administration
influence to further his legislative
projects. Mckinley wanted him to
be secretary of the treasury, but
Aldricb declined with thanks, with
out giving it a second thought. All
he wants politically is to remain in
the senate. He has never figured
in national conventions, and, so far
as can be seen, has never taken part
in the manipulations for the nomin
ation of a president. He has no as
pirations to shine as an orator. The
idea of playing to the galleries never
entered his mind. He never bustles
about his work. When a measure
is on in which be is interested be
moves around quietly and easily,
talking with this man and that,
finding out just what everybody
wants and just what everybody in
sists on or is willing to concede.
He never burrows or accomplishes
his end by stealth. Kverything
with him is frank and above-board.
He never assumes an air of mystery,
and yet it is a standing mystery
bow he manages to accomplish so
much with so little effort. He is
always accessible, always good-
natured, and always ready to talk
with apparent sincerity and freedom.
In personal appearance Aldricb is
one of the handsomest men in pub
lic life. lie has a well-knit frame.
His finely cut face beams with
good humor. Twenty years ago
when be came to the house his hair
was wavy and jet black, which
gave him a striking appearance.
Now it is rather sparse and gray,
and the mustache is gray. But in
spile of that he is lithe and agile as
a boy. He is a good type of the
successful business man who has
brushed up against all sorts of peo
ple and knows how to live a man
of the world, not over-burdened
with sentiment, and not worrying
about other people's ills.
