Capitol Gossip
WASHINGTON. Jan 14 -Senator
Thomas C. Piatt of New York has
a record that is probably not
equaled by any man In the coun
try, and certainly by no Senator or Rep
resentative In Congress. r Senator Piatt
has been a delegate to eight national con
ventions In succession, beginning In 1871
and dow n to 9o. For twenty-eight years
ho has been going to the national conven
tions of his party and participated In the
nomination of Hayes and Wheeler. Gar
field and Arthur, Blaine and Logan, Har
rison and Morton, Harrison and R-ld.
McKinloy and Hobart, McKinley and
Rcosovolt and Roosevelt and Fairbanks.
Only two of the eight nominations has h'i
seen defeated at the polls. It Is true that
Senator Piatt did not favor all of the.
noralneos, but he helped to name a num
ber of them, cither because, ho was orig
inally for them or because he was a part
of the combination that agreed upon the
cendldate It is possible that somewhere
in the United States there is a man who
has been a delegate to eight national con
ventions but It Is mtv doubtful. In all
probability Senator Piatt alono has this
distinguished record.
There was an Interesting discussion the
other day as to whether a man who had
been a Delegate from a Territory was In
a better position for election as Senator
when tho Territory was admitted as a
State than If he had remained a private
citizen it was argued that a man who
was elected aa a Delegate and antagonized
some other man was likely to be def at. it
when the State was admitted Yet look
ing back over the States admitted: It ap
pears that the DcleKateshlp was a step
ping stone to the Semite. Frank Pettl
grew had been a Delegate from Dakota
and became a Senator from South Dako
ta, Tom Carter had been a Delegate from
Montana and was afterward elected to tho
Senate; Fred Dubois was a Delegate frem
Idaho and has been elected by two dlffer
tnt parties as a Senator, John B Allen
v. is a Dolegalo from Washington and be
came a Senator; Joseph M. Carey was a
Delegate from Wyoming and was made a
Senator; John L. Rawlins and Frank J.
Cannon were both Delegates from Utnh
and were afterwards Senators. That Is
the record for States admitted during the
past twenty years. Governors of Terri
tories have also been fortunate In the
matter of Senntorshlp. There was Gov.
Gil Pierce of Dakota; Gov. Frank Warren
of Wyoming; Gov. Watson Suulre of
Washington, and Gov. George L. Shoup ot
Idaho. The conversation about coming
to the Senate was In regard to William
H. Andrews, who defeated Bernard S.
Rodey for Delegate from New Mexico.
Andrews wants to como to the Senato,
and Rodey also. Why not room for both
Well If there Is a State admitted under
present conditions it will Include both
Arizona unci New Mexico, and tho Ari
zona part would no doubt be glad to have
one of the Senators. And again, and also
most Important, the first Senator from
New Mexho, either admltt-d singly or
with Arizona, will bo Gov. Otero He Is
out for tho Senate, and Is politician
enough to get It. The other may bo Dr'
SgatS -elect Andrews, or again, it may be
some) other fellow.
Whenever the Senate debates develop
Into personal colloquies; when one man
after another Joins In the discussion and
remarks are made from the seals of Sen
ators and the presiding officer is Ignored;
when the Senate becomes disorderly and
n--ds to be admonished then does Pres
ident pro tern. Frye call the venerable
Senator PettUS of Alabama to the chair
and watch the result Pettus will not al
low ono Senator to Interrupt another
without first addressing the -hair, and
through tho prcsldlnc officer obtain th
consent of the Senator entitled to thit
floor A running debate Is very difficult
under such conditions, and the colloquies
are Interspersed by interruptions of the
chair who declares first one and thon
another Senator out of order. The Ala
bama Senator performs this duty with
such an air of gravity and an evident
desire for decorum that no Senator can
take offense On such occasions as these
Senator Frye takes a seat In the Sen
ato and enjoys the discipline being admin
istered Here Is a story that Involves the proper
way to spell tho word "acts." A crowd
of Congressmen were gathered In tho
cloakroom, telling of amusing Incidents
which had occurred In various political
conventions, when th lank form of Rep
resentative Cushman of the state of
Washington hove In sight. "Cusb" Is
somewhat of a favorlto as a story-teller,
as he seldom retails a chestnut, and al
most Invariably has a fresh one in stock.
"Cush" was at once Invited to contribute
something for "the good of the order,"
and said;
"Away out In the State of Washington
for the past two years all political satel
lites have revolved more or less In an or
bit around Gov Henry MrBrldo. It so
happens that McBrlde and I have always
been friends But be that as It may, the
Governor became embroiled in a row with
some of the prominent Republican politi
cians of the State and there was merry
war declared. The politicians went after
the old man'p scalp, and tho old man In
return unlimbered his executive meat-ax.
and heads began to fall Into the lasket In
every direction. At about this stage of
the game, two years ago. the Republican
county convention of my own county met.
Senator Foster and myself both reside In
this county. The politicians wero willing
to compliment the Senator and myself.
hut they wanted to hit the old Governor
a lick. In the midst of the convention
one delegate arose and offered tbi
following peculiar double-barreled resolu
tion: 'We hereby heartily ami enthuslastl-
ally Indors' the p. l 1 1 lea I n cords of Sen
ator Foster and t "ongressman Cushman.'
(Great applause.)
"After the tumult had subsided, the
second paragraph was read, as follows-
'We Indorse the officials acts of Gov.
Henry M. Hrld-
"Amldst the profound sllenr-e which fol
lowed, a del-gate with a Bqueaky volco
arose and piped out:
" 'Mr. Chairman Mr. Chairman please
read that lest paragraph agln.'
"Tho chairman read once more:
" 'Wo indorse the official acts of Gov.
Henry M-Brld- '
"Then the delegate squeaked out:
'Mr Chairman Mr. chairman how do
you spell that word 'axT "
Representative Mann of Illinois was
conversing With a friend In the corridor
of the House recently when Represenuu
tlve Daniels cf California came along.
"I am xolng to send you some papers on
that camp site." said Daniels, "which win
explain what I was talking to you
Now. you think I am Fred Stevens of
Minnesota," Interposed Mann. "I have
been taken for him before. You needn't
apologize to mc." continued Mann, as
Daniels bagan an apology. "You apolo
gize to Stevens."
"Oh. I know Fred Steors," remarked
Daniels, who was formerly a Minnesota
man, "I've known him since he was a
boy. I thought you were Col. Hull, chair
man of the Military eommittee. I beg
your pardon for tho mistake."
"Well., that's all right, too." laughed
Mann. "I don't mind being taken f.-r
either Hull or Stevens; they're both good
looking men."
Senator Allison occasionally tells a
short story to illustrate a point. Refer
ring to a number of bills pending In the
Senate, and answering a suggestion as to
whether all were not likely to bo defeat
ed, he said.
"You have heard of the boy who aeked
his father tho meaning of E pluribus
unum. haven't you? Well, the old man
replied: "My son, always come to your
father when you want to know about
anything, an' I will tell you every tlm-.
E pluribus unum. my son. Is an old week
proverb, and means, when freely trans

House after an absence of twenty years
recalls to tho old-timers the interesting
contest which resulted in his election to
the highest position In tho House. Thoso
were the days when contests meant some
thing Thoy were not all fixed Up months
In advance, but a Speaker might be elect
ed In a night. Kelfer was Several can
didates were In the field, and Frank HIs
COCk of NjBW York had enough written or
telegraphic pledges to carry the caucus.
Tho night before the caucus Don Cam
eron of Pennsylvania and George M.
Robeson, a member of the House from
New Jersey and former Secretary of tho
Navy, called on John A. Kasson of Iowa,
one of the candidates, and said they
would like to discuss the subject of House
organization, the probable make-up of the
Ways and Means committee and other
committees. Kasson told them that while
the Speakership wn.s unsettled ho did not
care to go Into details, but In case he
should bo chosen he would like very
much to have their views, and would b
glad to listen to any suggestions that
they desired to make.
Cameron and Robeson quickly departed
and w-nt to eeo Kelfer When they made
the same suggestion to him they were
warmly welcomed. Kelfer not only want
ed their suggestions, but wanted them at
once. The conference lasted long and
seemed to be very satisfactory. Tho next
day the Pennsylvania delegation held a
meeting and went In a body to Kelfer. It
settled the contest,
Hlscock was very much disgusted, but
he fared well In committee iisslgnment!".
He had held the third place on Appropria
tion and was made chairman, jumping
Joe Cannon of Illinois and Jay Hubbell
of Michigan. Cannon was the ranking
member, and, according to all precedents,
was entitled to the chairmanship. If he
was chagrined ho never betrayed It by a
word or deed. Ho accepted the over
slauRhlng as If it was a part of the game
Some ono suggested that Speaker Cannon
mlK'ht make Kelfer chairman of the Ap
propriations commlttre in view of his for
mer si n Ice on that committee, and the
fact that he was onc Speaker of the
Hons. " Wonder If he will?
Robeson did not fare badly. Tie was
mads the second member on Rul-s. sec
ond on Appropriations, second on NaVal
Affairs, and chairman of Expenditures in
the Navy department He Intended t"
look after the department which had been
under his management during the pre
vious administration.
Pennsylvania probably got what she
wanted Anvway the great protectionist.

Ways anil Means, and the tariff revision
of that period did not particularly disturb
tho Interests of the Keystone State.

eept a reduction until thev have secured
the Influence, of all their friends to pre-
vent it. The claim Is made that ten regi-
ments of cavalry will answer all the pur-
poses necessary for tho United States
Cavalry Is not necessary' In tho Philip-
pines, except in an few Isolated places.
Here In the L'nlted States very little cav-
airy Is necessary In the old days, when
Wild Indians roamed the Western plains
and mountains, cavalry was a necessity,
and heroic service, did our brave troopers
perform. There is not a regiment in the
service, from the First to the Tenth, that
did not have its 6hare of the hardship of Sbbbh
Indian fighting and Ih entitled to its credit IbbbH
for the glory which the mounted men Bl
havo won. But now there Is a different Eea
state of affairs It seems likely that there
never wilt again be an Indian fight. There
may be some Isolatrd outbreak of a few Hs9
Indians erased by liquor or dTturl 1 IH
their mode of life, but never again will
there be a tribe in warfare, and the long H
march and swift pursuit of mounted nu n
will M no longer required. The railroads
crossing the country in so many placet,
also make it easg to move Infantry to H
points whero thoy may be n Ceded, and
tho railroads have thus lntorfered with
the necessity of cavalry. It would seem,
therefore, that although the cavalry has
a glorious history and a past to be proud
of. Its futuro Is not so bright, and the
best friends of the mounted troopfl will
probably find it hard to show why Sona-
tor Scott's bill should not become a law. JH
In conneetlon with the movement to re-
duce the cavalry by five regiments, it Is BfH
rather surprising that a suggestion Is not
mado to reduce the general officers The
War department has found it somewhat
difficult to properly place all the Major
and Brigadier-Generals of the service. In
order to make places It has been found
necessary to re-establish divisions, al-
though department worked very well fJH
and reported direct to the War depart-
ment. One of these divisions, with a Ma-
Jor-General and staff, has he adquarters at
Oklahoma City, but for what purpose no IH
on- has ever satisfactorily said Thero is
another at St. Iuls. but why? Then
there is one at Governor's Island, with a
Major-General. and a department with a
Brigadier-General; two headquarteis on H
that little Island In San Francisco the

Is really need of but one position. Then
thero are general officers In command of

enough aro scattered over the country to ijiH

Millions of people, of nine different
