Speculation as to Democratic Stan

that was the whisper heard to-day. follow
ing the conference between W. J. Bryan,
Mayor Harrison, Charles A. Towne. Senator
Dubois of Idaho. Robert E. Burke. Frank
Cannon of Utah and several other party
leaders Saturday night and Sunday.
The dissolution of the Silver Republican
Is held to be necessary before Mr. Towno
can be considered for tho vice presidency.
His nomination for Vice President is to
be the chief comfort offered to the silv-er
advocates in exchange for a modification
of the party's attitude on silver. Imperial
ism, according to the present Democratic
plans, is to bo made the great Issue in 1904.
. Mayor Harrison's nomlnaUon. it is hold,
would go far to placato the anti-silver men
In the party, and It Is believed, with a
modification of the platform, would lrtan
the return to allegiance of such men as cx
Presldent Cleveland. Don M. Dickinson,
Daniel Lamont and John G. Carlisle.
Mr. Bryan recognises that a third nom
ination is beyond his reach. He Is .'--'-ous,
however, of taking tho lead In the selection
of the probable standard bearer, and is
said to be ready to favor Harrison and

STATE BOARDS TO
BE SWEPT GLEAN.
T'nder Now Regime Nothing Will
Be Left of the Once Mighty
CULL0M STILL VERY CONFIDENT
Tanner Equally Sangiiinp Over the
Outcome of the Senatorial
Changes in Office.
Springfield, 111., Nov. 25. The absence
f,rom the State of Governor Elect Yates Is
keenly felt by the Republican office hunters.
If Richard Yates left Illinois for the pur
rose of cYmonslratlng the necessity of tak
ing the Governor into consideration in all
political maneuvers, he must bo gratified
with the result. All deals are In abeyance
until his return and his wishes are known.
Senator Cullom warms his shins In his
headquarters In Chicago and to all Inquirers
repeats the stereotyped phrase: "I am sure
Governor Tanner makes a weekly trip to
the metropolis for the purpose of getting
his name In the newspapers and declares
"with confidence" that he has a sure thing
on Cullom's office.
Uncle Joseph Cannon Is not taking much,
and unless Judge Yatts decides to take
sides with him It is doubtful if his name
goes before the caucus. He is claiming
twelve votes in the joint caucus, and this
claim Includes Small and "Curtis, who are
bound by the most solemn oath nnd binding
Instructions to vote for Cullom "as long as
his name Is before the caucus."
Before he became a statesman and was
merely a country politician Governor Tan
ner had the reputation of being a stiff
poker player, and Tom Needles once said
Tanner always bet a four flush harder than
a full hand. His announced confidence In
his own success In the senatorial caucus Is
not regarded seriously by the politicians.
It Is generally conceded that he may be
able to defeat Cullom. but the successful
man will hardly be the present Governor
I met one of Governor Tanner's closest
friends the other day, and a man holding
high office under tho State government.
"What chance does Tanner Btand?" I
"I don't know," was the reply. "I have
dene my duty. I had certain things to do,
and they are done. John tells me that he
has got "old limber legs beat to a fare you
well, but he Is not sure he will be the best
"Old limber legs" i9 another way of spell
ing Cullom. Tanner and Cullom traveled to
Chicago together Friday night that Is, they
were on the same sleeper, "eitiier ot us
knew it," remarked the Governor, "until we
met In the washroom of the sleeper in the

no hard feelings toward John Tanner, it Is
any man's privilege to get himself elected

"Are you still confident of election?" I
asked Senitor Cullom.
"I am," was the ready reply. "I do not
see how anything of importance can be done
now. When the members get together at
Springfield It will be time enough to see
how the members are going to line up. I am
satisfied now to meet my friends and chat
Some of the weak-kneed supporters of
Senator Cullom are getting nervous over
the repeated assertions of the Governor and
the confident air he assumes. They have a
Ccspicion that he may have a Joker up his
sleeve and they are afraid of him.
"I do not care to give the figures Just
now," said he, "but I believe I will have
votes enough to win. I am more confident
each day that I will bo successful in this
Governor-elect Yates will return home
next week. Ho Is due to arrive In Chicago
next Monday. It Is needless to state that
the town will be filled with politicians.
There 1h at least one good, big office to be
given out as a Christmas present before
the battle opem up here in January. I re
fer to the collectorship of Internal revenue'
for the Springfield District, now filled by
Judgo Richard Yates. His resignation is
in the hands of the President, to take effect
as soon as convenient, or not later than
January 1. 1D01. This place Is at the dis
posal of Senator Cullom. under the rules
of senatorial courtesy. Mayor Loren
Wheeler of Springfield is a candidate for it.
Henry Yates, brother of the Governor-elect,
and present Chief Deputy Collector, is also
If the new Governor is ready to play bft.ll
with Mr. Culloin no doubt he can have the
honor of selecting his successor in the Col
lector's office. This will furnish an easy
way of getting his brother a good berth, a
better one than the Governor of Illlnol?
can give him. The best thing about it Is
the charge ot nepotism could not be laid
at the door of the Governor. It Henry
Yates is made Collector In place of his
brother. Congressman Cannon and Gov

Postmaster Louis E. Miner, who controls

perquisite of the United States Senator liv

"I know a man Tanivr l depending on

the morning of the caucus he may have I
decided to vote ror Manner, aim ne rau
change several times before his name is
reachrd on the roll call In the caucus-room.
Springfield hat turned up another hot
candidate for a State office. Allen II. Smith,
a young business man. and tho only plmon
pure, original Yates man In the county, is
being urged for the Railroad and Ware
house Board. His qualifications are su
perior to those of many seekers atter the
place, and In addition he is not a politician.
Judge H. W. S. Wheatley ot Duquoln Is
another landldatc for the railroad and
warehouse job, and if there is a man In
Egypt more deserving, let him show Gov
ernor Yates his credentials.
Young Mr. Phillips of Olney Is sure to get
a good thing, and It may be this ery Job
of Railroad and Warehouse Commissioner.
It will be remembered that Mr. Phillips was
the solitary Yates delegate from Richland
County, and he was badgered and brow
beaten to change to Reeves as soon as the
delegation started for Peoria and came near
being forced to change his vote on the
third ballot. The balance of the delegation
was for Reeves, and they wanted to make
It unanimous. But Phillips stood square for
Yates from start to finish. He was put on
the delegation at the suggestion of Aden
Knopf, who mado such a valiant fight for
a Job under Goernor Tanner four years
ngo. Phillip" Is a poor man. a hardware
store clerk, nnd "something good" will no
doubt be welcome to him. FIIs father was
an lntenso admirer of Yates senior forty
years ago, which accounts for the interest
the young man took In Yates junior.
Most of the State boards will be swept
clean by the new broom. Nothing will be
left of the once mighty Tanner machine.
This reminds me that Secretary Rose re
cently called his forces liefore him and
made a speech something like this:
"Gentlemen The election is over, and I
desiro to tell all of you that only one man
in my department has a sura thing on a
1ob for the next four years, and that mnn
Is myself. I am under no obligations to
keep any of you, and 1 suggest now that
you all look for something else to do by
January 1. Some of you will have to go
about that time. I don't know who 11 will

nil fair warning. Let me add another word,
nnd that Is this: Don't bother about getting
up petitions or bringing pressure to bear
on me to keep you. I know vou all. I know
what you have done In politics and how

It may be that some of the Tanner leaders

the Secretary of State, and about a score
of them are good ones.

A high authority said to-day that this
Government entertained little expectation
that Great Britain would be able to sup
press the junta, but It does expect tin Lon
don Government to maintain a strict su

and to prevent It from shipping arms and
supplies to the Filipinos.
Tho authorities have no doubt that many
of the rifles delivered to the Filipinos .re
of American make, as reported from Ma

to have been dolne the bulk of the nuM

are employed by the Filipino Junta thern.
The authorities have been unablo to ob

Congress May Be Called Upon to
Appropriate That Sum for
Washington. Nov. 23. Tho total approprls
tlons to be made at the coming session o(
Congress, It I saM by- careful observers,
may be over a billion dollars.
There are two features of legislation -which
will corr.o up for consideration before Con
gress durlns the session whloh will. If
passed, call for a large expenditure of publla
money. These are an omnibus claims bill
and a river and harbor bill.
With tho Increased appropriations for tha
army and navy, and Increased estimates la
all other branches of the Government ser
vice, with the vast number of private pen
sion and public building bills pending, with
the Nicaragua Canal and ship-subsidy bills
and with the claims and river and harbor
bills, it Is thought quite likely that the run
of appropriations may reach $1,000,000,000.
