Tanner for United States Senator, and Lieut. Gov. .Northcote for governor of Illinois; this is 'the attractive program that has been prepared by the delegation of rich Illinois politicians who came to this city last week. Whether it will go through or not depends entirely upon Senator Cullom. The Important men who are engineer ing the program are all Interested either financially or politically In the Iron and steel trust. They are J. VT. Gates, Isaac Elwood, James Lambert, Col. Drake, Dr. Jamleson and Gov. Tanner, all well known In Illinois. If not In tho East. They came to this city about a week ago and issued invitations to all the Chicago members and Illinois repre sentatives except Congressmen Boutell and Foss to meet them in a grand re conciliation banquet at Chamberlln's, where the hatchet was to bs burled and the braves agreed to dwell together In peace and amity, forgetful of the man ner In which they had -reached for each other's scalps In, the recent past. Foss and Boutell were omitted because they did not train with the machine. What subjects were discussed at the banquet has not transpired, but the visit ors started downtown for the 4 o'clock congressional limited to New York on Monday apparently wcll satisfied. On the nay to the station one of them bouyht an Evening Times- and saw the first an nouncement of the intended res'gnatlon of Secretary Bliss. At once an excited talk ensued which ended In the party securing a private Pullman cor at the station and going Into executive sess'on therein until midnight, when they de parted for New York. In the meantime, messengers had been sent flying over the city calling In tho boys and a grand pow now had been held at which the above plan was outlined. It vi as taken fur granted that if they- could get the parties to this program ,to agree to It. there would be no difficulty in obtaining the President's assent the e to.

IT for ZOC St. would do honor to any Cabinet ever se lected. But the great difficulty was to get the senator to agree. The strongest kind of arguments were brought to bear on him, both personal and political. It was pointed out that Gov. Tanner was such a heavy load for the Republicans of Illinois to carry that he might swamp the party and give Il linois to the Democrats In the next Pres idential election, while in the Senate he would be out of the way of those who resent the boodle practice in politics. He would bo appointed by- the present lieu tenant governor and be re-elected by the legislature In 19CU On the other hand. Senator Cullom was "warned as Senator Sherman had been two years before that his own re-election" 'was by no means certain. There wouldljbe many contes tants for his seat, -and if the, aggregate wealth of the party "behind tho deal should be thrown against him, or, as It was diplomatically pfit, if this party should be convlnced'that some other can didate was more available. Senator Cullom seriously objected to all this, but the combination was too powerful for him to carelessly under take to oppose. Ho took the matter un der advisement: He 'is still considering It, and will continue-to do so until Sec retary Bliss presents his resignation. But- when the time "comes he may accept, much against his will, as Secretary Sherman accepted a Cabinet post In or der to make room for Marcus A. Hanna. QUESTIONS HANGING FTBE.
