Representative Champ Clark, of Mis

speakership of tbe coming democratic
House, reached Washington yeaterday,
ju3t a' the time a definite announce
ment of opposition to bis a?pirations
waa being made by Ueprescntative Car?
lin, of the Eigbth Virginia district, as a
representative of the faction bostile lo
Clark . candidaey.
'Jhe course, according to Mr. Carlin,
will depend upon Mr. Clark's attitude
toward the question of the crealion ol
a eommittee of committeos by the
House. If be wiil favor tbe selection
of such a eommittee, he will have 110
oppdaitiou; if be will not. Ueprescnta?
tive Hay, of Virginia, will bo put for
ward as a candidate.
"As for a eommittee 00 committeea
which will appuint the new eommittee
of tbe House," declared Kepresenta
tive Clark last uight, discuaaing tbe
question, "tbat will ho left to the dem?
ocratic caucus. Persooally, I am
neitber for or against a eommittee on
"Tbere is not tbe sligbtest doubt as
to tbe situation," was Representative
Carlin's eointuent. "If Mr. Cla, -
g'ves assuraoce that ba is io favor of
tbe appoiutment of a comtuilteo ou
committeea, not tbe sligbtest effort will
be made to oppose bis eleetion as
apeaker. If be takes a stand in favor
of retaining the present power of tbe
apeaker, be shall meet defeat. Tbe
demand for tbis reform will be made
by the democrats of the eastern coast.
This demand will assuredly be sup
ported by their votes. I know of wbat
I am speaking. Representative Hay,
of the Seventb district of Virginia, will
be a candidate iu easo of Mr. Clark's
refusalto yield tbe power of appoint?
