SOLONS NOT WITHOUT AMBITIONS Conjjres Rearrangement which May Give Some of Them an Oiiprotanity. Special to The Journal. Sioux City, lowa, Dec. —That lowa's congressional districts will be reorganized by the legislature the coming winter is not now seriously doubted by those best acquainted with the course of political affairs in the stae. That the new arrange ment of districts will decidedly change the aspect of political conditions is con ceded. . . . lowa has eleven congressmen since the census of 1880. It did not get an in crease by 'the census and reapportionment of last year, so there is no absolute ne cessity for redistricting. But the demand conies from all parts of the state because of the inequalities between the larger and smaller districts i n population. If the 2,231,853 people whom the 1900 census found in lowa were equally distributed among the districts each would contain 202.896. But in fact there is a difference of 95,000 between the smallest district, the first, -with 164,855, and the largest, the tenth, with 259,347. The redistricting ■would have no obstacle were it not certain to embarrass some of the congressmen by Opeß C laaalia P P** ™—ur II ... to save the Until JEWELERS, consumer Christmas. 518-520 1 COLLET AYE. percent.

In rearranging the districts, the ques tion of making them all republican is not j so difficult. But that of keeping every member of the present congressional dele gation in a district in which he will have I a fair chance of re-election is different. What is more, the legislature need not be expected to manifest supreme anxiety on this point. There are several leaders in the legislature who want to go to con gress, and whi will be glad to assist in fix ing up districts for their own purposes. The Influence of the congressional delega tion with the legislature has waned in re cent years. Some of the strongest men on the congressional delegation have been retired and succeeded by weaker ones. The Cummins movement, was, broadly speaking, the movement of the indepen dent element in the legislature against the domination of Washington influences. The legislature won the day. The next legislature will be the most in dependent one in many years. It will contain several aspirants for congres sional honors; and it is likely to do much as it pleases. Pickett Would Go to ('on«rfm. In some of the districts, indeed, the de mand for redistricting is so strong that even the congressmen favor it, because they fear their chance of renomination will not be so good unless changes are made. Thus, Speaker Henderson is un dertood to favor reorganizing the third. The west end of the district wants to break away. It has chafed for a long time under the Dubuque domination; con gressional aspirants have developed who realize that their only chance is in making a new district. An illustration, typical of many situa tions in the state, will suffice. Charley Pickett of Waterloo wants to go to con- gress, but lie is in Henderson's district. If Black Hawk, in which Waterloo is, could be transferred to another district, Pickett would have a chance. So it Is proposed to change it into the fifth, as a j feature in a scheme that will leave a com pletely reorganized fifth, putting Cousins, now representing the fifth, over into the second, and leaving Rumple, now repre senting the second, in the new fifth. As Rumple is not expected to ask more than two terms, this would leave a good chance for aspirants. In the present first district there is al ready a fight on hand for the nomination next year to succeed Thomas Hodge of Burlington. There is a strong redistrict ing sentiment, and it is said Mr. Hodge is not averse to the plan. In the sixth, Con gressman Lacey is quoted as wanting a new deal, because he thinks it would help him. He also has a fight on hand. N. E. Kendell of Albla wants to go to con gress in the sixth. He is now a member of the legislature, and because of his am bitions would favor redistricting. In Other Districts. The seventh, in turn, is lining up for a fight. Prouty of Dcs Moines wants to succeed Hull, also of Dcs Moines. It is proposed to add Greene and Boone to the seventh and cut off Marion. This would add to the chance of defeating Hull, and the legislature is not especially friendly to Hull. Prouty, however, would object to leaving out Marion, where he formerly lived, and in -which he is certain of a dele gation. In the fourth district, again, there are aspirants who, desiring to succeed Haugen in congress, are strong in the legislature and will try to steer the rearrangement to their own advantage. In the eleventh, Senator Hubbard of Sioux City is a con dldate for congress, and he would like to see the counties of Dickinson, Clay and Sac sliced off. as he proposed, for they are all likely to be Thomas counties. To cut them off would greatly improve Hubbard's chances of the nomination next year. And Hubbard is one of the influential members of the upper house of the legislature. Such cases might be multiplied in definitely, to Indicate the local influences and ambitions which, working through the legislature, will, help to press for re districting. In view of all these condi tions, it is confidently predicted by poli ticians that the state will be redistrlcted this winter. It will be a long and difficult task, and there will of course be strong opposition. But- the demand of plain jus tice for an equalization of population, to gether with these other considerations, will be a hard combination to override. Members of the legislature who have re cently been interviewed on the subject ( have expressed a strong preponderance j of opinion in favor of redistricting. . Plan Proposed. Assuming, then, that the state is to be redistricted; that every congressman now serving is to be left with a district; that the legislative influences will in some cases favor such rearrangement as will help outside aspirants; that the districts must be equitable in population, and must bear a general resemblance, so far as pos sible, to their present geographical out line; the following plan of redistricting has been prepared. It is based on numer ous suggestions from legislators, poli ticians and representatives of congres sional influence. In the first column of the table is the present arrangement of districts, with population of counties and districts; the second column gives the proposed arrangement, with population: PRESENT.

IN A NUTSHELL Winnipeg—A Brandon dispatch announces the death of C. A. Holmes, the elevator own er, who was Injured by an explosion of gaso lene at Hargravt* on Saturday. Chicago—Relatives of Mrs. McKinley have little hope of her living long, acording to a statement made by Lieutenant James McKin ley, U. S. A., a nephew of the late president. Peoria, 111.—Nineteen independent distiller ies are preparing for a campaign against the Distilling Company of the whisky trust. Eighteen of these distilleries are al ready in operation. «♦« New York —For the past few weeks prob ably four-fifths of the potatoes reaching New York city have come from Europe. Not for eight years had this country bought potatoes abroad in any great quantities. Springfield, Ohio—The engagement of Rich mond P. Hobson to Miss Eleanor Ludlow was announced to-day. Miss Ludlow is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Ludlow, and is a niece of Former Governor Bushnell. The wedding will take place in February. St. Johns, N. F. —Signor Marconi has been served with legal documents from the so licitors of the Anglo-American Telegraph company, notifying him that the company possesses an exclusive monopoly of the tele ! graph business within Newfoundland and its dependencies, and demanding that he cease his experiments and remove his apparatus. Athens, Ga.—Leila Lambert, an 8-year-old child, was burned to death In her home by au unknown young negro boy, during the ab sence of her parents. The boy was peddling and asked that he could warm by a fire in the Lambert house. As he started to leave, he placed a burning paper under the dress of the little girl and escaped from the house. Philadelphia—Advices from all sections of the eastern half of Pennsylvania are that the waters covering the flooded districts are re ceding and that telegraphic communication is being slowly made. Dozens of coal mines are flooded along with hundreds of industrial concerns 'ocated along waterways, thus throw ing idle thousands of men. It is estimated more than 40,000 persons have been rendered idle. New York—Park Benjamin, president of the naval arch commission., which has charge of the proposed naval arch and water gate at the Battery, in this city, announces that the project has been temporarily given up. The arch and gate was to have cost $1,300,000 and $500,000 had been pledged. "We are of the opinion that the outcome of the Schley trial," said Mr. Benjamin, "reveals so much dia sention even in the highest ranks of the navy, and is bound to open so many other matters for argument and dispute, that it would be altogether inexpedient at the present time to do anything further in the matter." WASHINGTON President Roosevelt is adopting the plan of securing Information from democratic sen ators and representatives relative to appli cants for office in the south. Senator Thomas C. Pla/tt of New York says he has decided to bring a Jibel suit against William Allen White of Emporia, Kan., and McClure's Magazine, on account of an article published in the current number. Having seriously concluded that the auto mobile may be substituted for the horse in military operations, Great Britain has an nounced a competition and list of prizes varying from $5,000 down to $500 for machines adapted, to the uses of war. The committee designated by the repre sentatives of the two houses of congress ap pointed to invite Secretary Hay to deliver an address in honor of the memory of the ! late President McKinley called upon the sco- I retary and secured his consent to perform this service. As a result of the negotiations that have been in progress between Secretary Hay and Mr. Brun, the Danish minister, the last obsta cles to the preparation of the treaty of ces sion whereby the United States will become possessed of the Danish West Indian, islands, have been removed. It is expected Senator Nelson will be hon ored with a place on the judiciary committee where he will be in better position' to take a part in the work soon to be before the com mittee for amending the federal bankruptcy law. Senator Clapp will probably go on the Indian and agricultural committees. In the senate Senator Clapp of Minnesota called up his resolution providing that fur ther discussion of the pending Hay-Paunce fote treaty should be had in open session. He said that the country regarded the execu tive sessions of the senate as a farce and he did not think there was any occasion under ordinary conditions for secret sessions of the senate. The resolution was referred to the committee on rules. Herbert Spencer 10c cigars for Christ mas at Hall's Boston block cigar store.
