The Union League Club last night reiteratcd
and empha.ized ita deelaration made tWO years
n?o that lt is a Kepublican oreanizatiun. Tl.e
straight-out Republican ticket of eandidates fnr tho
Nomimitlng Con.tnittec was eleeted by a majority
of over two to one, in one of the most exciting
elections ever held in the club. The interest in
the contest was so great that ahout
?Si members voted. Edward A. Quintard,
whose name appcared on both ticket., received
the irrea test number of Yoles. 601. George lL.
Whitman, also a candidate of both side., wns not
far behind him. The hlghest number of votes
re.-eived by any other peraon on the ticket ho.idc.l
by C'donel Wiiliam L Stronjt waa 446, while the
largest number of votes eaat for any one who was
on the Blakeman ticket alonc was '216 votes..
Two years ago the club voted that only Hepul.
licatis ahould h_ admitted to membcrship, bf
about the same majonty as that galaed by the
?traight-oiit Kepuhlicans last oiglit. The count
of the ballots wa* _______ _____ a ..uart.-r before
1. o'cloek, and a shout aroy among Uie many
supporters ot tln- Strong ticket who rcmained in
the clublilOtise.
The cltihlioiise prcsentcd a niosf aniinatcd ap
pearance early in the evenin--'. One aah after
another rolled up wlth one or more mcml.. rs, and
a great many of the voters aaaM on toa*, The
Bight was favorable for a big B_t__da__8, and
the bat llght whieh had been oarried on between
the two sides caused nearly every meml)er who
was in the city or near it to come to ca6t his
Ka.h party had out ft committee of voluntccrs
.ui W.-dnesdiiy and yesterday, who tried to see
as many men ae possible to ur^e them to vote
for Uk ir side. This eleetioneering continued last
cvcii.ii.' up to the time wheu the voling Ix-gan,
nnd, in faet, lasted, although in a
ilcsiillory way, until the polls closed.
Members who were not known to ba
pledf-d for either side were button-holod as they
enlcrcd the main hall hy the skirtnishers of the
two opposing forccs, and wen- cotnpelle.l t? l.sten
to aaraaat asajt-SneBta for aud agalaat tiie tara

home a? soon as they had voted, content to leave
the outcome of the contest. from their mornin.
papers, bat many otliers re'iiained M the club
house until the result was annoitnce-1.
The otlieial ballot sent out by J. Seaver l'aac
tlie secretary. simply enntained the names of the
twelvo eandidates for the Nominatlng Committee,
no etTort lieing made to show that there were
two parties in the Held. Tho names on tho
Blakeman ticket were given first, as it had been
placed in nomination earlier Jhan tlie other. These
were: Birdaeye Blakeman, George L. Whitman.
John W. Cochrane, Edward A. Quintard, Francis
D. Lecompte, Tayson Merrill and WiUiam H.
The Strong ticket coneisted of the following:
Colonel Wiiliam L. Strong, Charlea B. Fosdick.
Nathaniel A. Prentiss, Emerson Foote, Thomas
H. Wood, Edward A. Quiutard and George L.
Whitman. As George L. Whitman and Edward
A. Quintard were on both tickets, there were
only twelve namea on the official ballot, in-tc-ad
of fourteen.
When the liat of eandidates headed by Mr.
Blakeman araa posted at the club, objection was
made tha? two of the men had not an
unblen.ished record of Kepublicanism, although all
the seven, it is said, voted for .Mr. Faasett. Mr.
Blakeman has always l>een a sfaunch Kepublicaii
and haa dune a great deal for the party, but it
w* aigad tlmt hc ai.d his BBBadatea repreaeated
the principle of " taking the club aat af politi.s "
Two years ago, bj B vote of nearly two to one,
ihe club dcei-M that only I'epublicins .should ba
eleeted to db__bata?ip. and tb?n araa a atrong
lecluig that tl.e suceess of the Blakcii.an ticket
would be _ partial nulJilication ..( Ihis dedaion.

Wa*hington, Dee. 10.?Speaker Crisp's tima
waa fully oectipied to-4lay by Demoeratie, J.ep_B
sentafives who wanted to diseuss with him thd
K.-neral policy of lcgislation for the eeeeion, and
also to <lrop a few inci.lental n-marks about
"that chairmunsbip.'' Speaker (riap has br-gufl
to thiak about l*eginning a more diflicult task thaa
fell to the lot of any of hia preile.i-_v.orK. It la
true that Speaker Kerr was obliged to conntruct
the commit.ecs in the XLIVfh Congress ol rua
terial a large proportion of whieh waa cru.le and
raw, but even then the proportion of new and
inexperienced men was sinaller than it i? now.
But the Demoeratic majority in the XLIVth
Congrcas was not torn, ua this one is, by intt'rnal
feutls aml dissensiona; the Speakership oanviwe
had not dividfd it into two ho.tile /ae.tiona;
there waa no question as to the politietU orthodoxy
or the inte'grity of any leadi*r or his aupportera
aml pnrtisuns. Th<* election of Mr. Kerr to the
Speakership did not array against him Samuel J.
Randall and hLs friemls in an attitude or disposl
tion of silent and millen hostility. The majority
at that time was animated bf a common pur
pose, an.l its Iea.lors ?11?1 not quarrel and fight
among themeelves as to the means whieh should
be employed to effcot that purpose. When Speaker
Kerr asked Mr. Kandall to take his choi4*e of
committee chairmanshipa, n.rfd at the latne time
intimated I hope that hi.i choiee would not n_
the e.hairmanship of Ways and Means, Mr. R*n
dall took the hint in a gentle and proper epirlt
an.l olu.se tl.e ?-li;,irmanshipof Appropriationa.
Does anybody suppose that Colonel Mills would
accept a like offer uccompnnied by a lifke hint
frrm Sp4*uker Crisp in the same ini*ek and grate
ful spirit ? Colonel Mills and all his friends
would feel that a deadly irmult had l>e"*n offered
to him if Speaker Crisp shonld dare to offer him
a choiee of chtiirmansbips accompanied by any
liinr or sugpestion whatever. Inde*?d. if some of
hi" friemls are to Ih* be!ie\ed. the Sa_;e of Corsicana
.vill refuse to aecept th>* Chairnianship of Wara
anil Means except on a condition whieh it would
be humiliating to tho Speaker to airrce to. It is.
in .rtect, that Colonel -Mills al.all not only be
chairman, but that he shall have the right to
\-4-to the appointment, as a mi._il.er of th>- com?
mittee 4.f any Dcmoerat whose soiindncss as a
- tariff relomior*' lr* may suspeet or tleny: in other
words, if he is uppointed chairman. he will refuse
to servc unlei* he can rhoose his Demoeratic 04)1
kagues. He ih.es n4it intend, say his friends. who
Ihjnl- that Colonel Mills may be persuaded to ae?
cept the eliairninnsliip on tl.e condition mentioned,
to place hiniself in a position when* he will bc
haniliesppcd either by veiled hoetility or open
lukewurmneas. Of courso Speaker Qmm could do,
no less than resent the offer of so degrailing a
condition, to aecept wliich would amount to a
confejsion that he lacked not only judgment but
political intcgrity and sincerity also.
And yet "the logic of the situation" would
seem to reqiiire Colonel Mills to insist on his con?
dition. Hc and bis friends, not only in Wueh
in;ton, but tliroughout the countr.*., have lieen
io. months piist V4)ciferoiiH_.v iledaring, as with.
iane vpice, that Crisp is unsouml on thi* tariff;
that, if not himself a "protection" Democrat, he
is tho re'preseutative of " protectioD* Demoerats
ind the exponent of " Kandallism'1; tliat the salva
tion of " tariff refnrm' aml the succe?B of the
Democratio party depend upon tlie sage of Cor?
sicana, and him* alone, so far as the LHd
Congr.t-s is coffcerned. His platlorm in the
Speak'-rship contest was "tariff reform'' and that
only, and it was said, on the authority of some
of his friends, that he had alrca.iy prepared a
draft of a bill wliich he would offer early in the
-ession for a generai aud thorough revLsion of
the tariff?a bill fram**d on broadcr and more
ilLstinct and rndical Kree Trade lines than the
famotis " Dark Lantern" l.ill of 1*88.
Hut it may happen that the Sage of Corsicana
may BM have an opportunity either to nceept
,.r ilc.-linc, with or without (.-oiiflitioiis, tlie chair
manship Bf Ways and Means. It, is whispered in
in.,r.' than BM <|iiarter that the Hill-Tanimauy
l.un.ian men, tlirougl. _nd by w-lioni 4 'risp wa_
elected SiaeaUcr, ure determined to plurk all the
tiuits of their gr4.1t anti-Cleveland victory, and
that Mills, as Uio s|m*.i..1 tii.-nd. chainpion, ropre
.viit.itiv.- and intended laoneliciaiy af Clovi-Iind
aml ('levi'laii.lisin in the llouse of Koprosntativt**.
must Im* *ct asi.le and shorn of inflitenM in that
body. Riiumr even cuitiniies to assert that in
pBIBBBBM of a welUloliii.'d and earelully matured
p!an, tlie llouse is to *>e '" ruii" in the interest of
the n<.iniiiati..:i <>i Hill or (iormaii lor tln* l.e.-i
.len.-.v next year, and thal aae af the inci.lonts of
thi P_BB is the appoiiitmi'tit af Wiiiiam M. Springor
?Spriugi-r of Illinois?as ehainu.in af Ways and
Means. Of MBIM the fai't is li-nicnibi'ied that he
noinina'i'.! Cleveland for the I're-i.lcii.-y at Colum?
bus at an eurly hour ono Nov.miiUt morning in
1 -mi, but Mr. Sprinper's cl.araiter is so well
umk'i'stood that that iudiseretion d4.es not count
against him. He has already pr.-,-laime<l that
his policy is to devmir the prot.-ctive tariff mor<el
by morsel, instead of trying to bolt lt iu a single
mouthful. That policy ih diainetri.-ally opposed
t4i the one whieh. Cleveland aml Mills reprcsent
aud advocate.
The ruiuor Ihal Sprin^er wotihl be uppointed
,-l.airuiaii of Ways an.l Means was scouted as ab
surd by alniost everybody who saw ii mentioned
in these 4lispatchc*. yesterday, but many of the
