Fresh, Crisp Paragraphs Concerning People and Affairs Around Our National Capitol. Special Correspondence of The Prog ress-Advertiser. Washington, D. C., September 9th, 1903. The intention of the republicans to forc«j the "rubber and dark-lantern currency'' issne in the Senate next winter is going to precipitato the warmest tariff debate that has been heard in the halls of the Congress since the days of the Mills bill, back in 1888. The republican leaders in the Senate are going to have their matches in that body when the debate is opened and they will come from the younger element in that body. Of all the young Murats of debate in the Senate the state of Texas stands at the Head as the best r quipped state in the Union in that regard. It is undoubtly, from the standpoint of democracy, the ablest represented state in the entire country in the persons of the Hon. Charles A. Cul berson and the Hon. Joseph W. Bailey. They are both under forty-five years of age, and have- achieved notable distinction in the political arena. Both have had remarkable careers. They have attained their present po sitions through the sheer force of intellect and exquisite fitness for the position, and not through the power of money, as have the majority of the on the republican side of the men Senate, Those two men will take commanding positions in the ci ming debate for the reasons that their democracy is on straight and they have the brains to back up their rep utations as democrats. The so-called leader of the Senate, Mr. Gorman, will not abine in this debate, for the very good reasoi that his tariff coat has renta and holes in it that will be plainly visible to the naked eye when such men as Aldrich and Spooner get on bia trail. His tariff retard has blow holes in it and he will be com pelled to take a back seat. The real leaders in the next session of the Senate will be Culberson and Bailey, of Texas; Carmack, of Tennessee; Patterson, of Colorado; and Money, of Mississippi. There is no better equipped man in the Senate than Culborson. lie is essentially a lawyer and it is the questions of the law and the Constitution that he prefers, but he is perfectly at home in a tariff debate. This is bis first experience a legislator, and he has not been ready to jump into the arena of debate as has his distinguished and briliiant colleague, Mr. Bailey, who had ten years' experience in the House before he came to the Senate. Senator Culberson's past experitice in public life has been confined to the executive department of govern mental affairs as the Attorney-Gen eral of Texas and Governor of the same state. He was twice nominated and elected Attorney-General, and twice nominated and elected Governor, and elected without opposition to the United Status Senate a3 a tribute to his bril iant record in the former of fices he had held. As Attorney-Gen eral of his s'ate he defended the state in a suit bofore the United States Supreme court, involving the validity to t^e title to Greer county, Texas, ami his speech in the case before the Supremo* Court was So brilliant that it called forth the en comiums of the most distinguished men of the bar in the country. Chief Justice Fuller told Col. D. B. Culberson, the father of the brilliant young Attorney General that it was the finest argument he had ever lis tened to in all his experience at the ar, and praise from ''Sir Hubert" as as was praise indeed. His two terms as Governor of Texas reached the high water mark of statesmanship and unanimous election to the Senate was a foregone conclusion. Ho is easily the leader of his state, a state of strong and virile men and can stay in the Senate as long as lie desires, and with little or no opposition. His colleague Mr Bailey easily takes rank as one of the best debaters in the entire Congress of the nation, His specialty is the tariff, having been on the Ways and Means Com mittee of the House, for ten years and in defending constitutional points. His briliiant fight in the Senate d the long session of the lastJCongresa to compel the President of the Senate to restore the ' names of Senators Tillman and McLaurin of South Caro lina to the rolls of the Senate, from which they had been stricken after their fist fight on the floor of the Sen ate, was the finest personal triumph ever seen in the Senate, and was so designated by Senator Foraker one of his chief and one of his ablest nents.
