SENATORS FROM IDAHO,
A Gentleman Who Is Confident That Dubole Will Not Be Seated. HE Sets Forth the Reasons for the Faith That Is in Him. Political Lash to Be Employed by Dubols on the Republleans at Washington Law Disregarded. State Senator De Lamar, of Idaho, was at the Auditorium hotel, says the Chicago Post. The senator, who is credited with the possession of a very clear knowledge of polities in his part of the country, is on his way to Europe to rest up after five years' steady labor. It was in 1886 he went to Idaho. He bought up all the mining pros pects of the camp then known as Wagon town, but where now stands the prosperous town of De Lamar. :He beipn in a sys tematic way to open up the prospects and until a short time ago he had taken out over $1,500,000 and expended $800,000 in de velopments and surface improvements, in eluding a large mill, two hotels, a tram railroad and fifty dwelling houses for the miners. He still retains an interest in the mines, but recently parted with most of his interest in them for $2,000,000, which he thinks entitles him to a vacation. The senator was a member of the last legislature which elected Shoup, McCon nell, Dubols and Claggett. He declares very firmly that Dubois has no hope of se curing a seat in the United States senate. "And for these reasons," he added: "When the Idaho legislature passed its con current resolution in conformity with the United States laws it stated that it would on the following day at 12 meridian pro ceed to elect two United States senators. The resolution passed both houses, but in stead of adheringyto this rasol ution, as is necessary to be legal, the legislature elected three instead of two-first George L. 4h oup, next W. J. McConnell and last Fred T. Du bois. "The next error was that the laws of the United States governing elections plainly state that no successor shall be elected to All a vacancy until the first Tuesday after the organization of both branches of the legis lature. In this respect Mr. Dubois also dis regarded the United States laws, as the leg islature was not entirely organized; Mr. Dubois was in this respect elected live days before that Tuesday arrived. Next the law plainly states that it shall be made clear to what vacancy a successor is elected, and as Mr. Dubois was elected in the very hour the two senators were elected who had yet to go to Washington and draw for terms, this formality was also disregarded. In all United States laws time is the essence. Mr. Dubois did not care about time, custom or usage; he was in a desperate strait. It simply was now or never. "The people wanted George L. Shoup from southern Idaho and W. i. Clagett from the north, but by an adroit combina tion of the three whowent through the form of an election Dubois took his chances of being railroaded through, as he did not dare to let the legislature take a recess for even an hour for the simple reason that he held his few men together by almost superhuman efforts. Dubois, as I understand it, has given up the fight from a point of law, but intends to beat Clagett by persuading the republicans in the United States senate that Clagett is not a republican, because nine democrats as well as ninet en republi cans in the Idaho legislature elected him, while he well knows that the votes of these democrats to Clagett was on account of his (Dubois') unscrupulous polit ical methods, and also because both politi cal parties in Idaho had one plank in common in their platform, and that was that northern Idaho should have one United States senator, Shoup and I)Ubois both be ing from the south and McConnell and Clagett from the north. Thus, as soon as it became evident that McConnell had drawn the sixty-day term, the legislature, realizing then that Dubois' election was al together too irrbgular to be legal, and in or der to keep its promise to give the north a senator, at once elected a northern man to fill the vacancy caused by the expiration of Senator McConnell's term." A BIG COMBINATION. Quay and His Friends WVorklng a Large Scheme in Peunnsylvania. HAnRlsauno, Pa., May 11.-Quay and the big Pennsylvania politicians have under taken the large contract of fixing things for themselves for the next six years with the president outside of the breastworks. Quay has no use for President Harrison. He wants a seat in the cabinet and knows that Harrison would never make that concession even to get the delegation from Pennsyl vania next year. A great combination of republican leaders in this state for the con trol of politics for the next six years and the election of a combine delegation from Pennsylvania to the national convention next year is now in progress of formation. It is possible that Quay and Maser may both be in it. Senators Quay and Cameron, Collector Cooper and General Ilastings will be the big four of the combine if Magee can't be comfortably fitted in. The prizes in sight of this scheme are: First, the nomination of the state ticket this summer; second, the selection of a state chairman to succeed the politically moribund Andrews; third, the ohairiann ship of the national committoo in 1892; fourth, a place in the cabinet of a prospec tive successor of Harrison in the presi dency; fifth, a United States senator ship from Pennsylvania; sixth, the governorship of the state in 1895. There appears to be in the list a fairly good crop of birds in the bush and none to speak of in hand, but when the play is fully unfolded the proposed arrangement appears much simpler than at first blush. One of the most important and interesting details of the plan is the promise to Gen eral Hastings that he shall be nominated for governor in 1894, practically without opposition. It is thought that the combination can easily control the state convention and the national convention delegation whic 1 will oppose the renomination of President Har rison if the next fall elections show that a republican candidate has a good chance of an election. Senator Quay will control this delegation, and it will enable Quay to easily be elected chairman of the national convention. Sup posing this much to be accomplished, the rest of the combination scheme rapidly de velops. Quay would be re-elected to the United States senate, with a higher place in view, a seat in the cabinet. Farest Fires Pl't Out lmy Rain.
