Dove», Jan. 5.—The fun lias already
commenced. The curly train this
morning brought up the, Sussex work
in force, as well as several of the

If there's anybody Democratic left
down in Sussex to-«lay it's because lie
missed the t rain. Applicants for ciork

There's enough of them from Sussex
alone to furnish forty legislative out
fits and tlum there's Kent and New

I see no reason yet, ev
of the caucus to change the prediction
made a month ago, that Senator John
P. Donahoe will bo the Senate speaker.
It is said this morning thatex-Gov
ernor Hall is going to make a tight for
it, hulth«* impression is general that
lie» has entered the list to<) late. It has
been generally accepted for a week
that, Ross and Houston, of Sussex,
hail promised to vote for Senator
is to give ills vote to Ned Hearn, of
Georgetown, for <'lerk of the Hons«'.
If this deal holds good the Senate
caucus will Ik* short and sweet.
But there's likely to l>ea picnic in
the House caucus. Nothing is yet
settled, and you cun find men this
morning horn who aie certian that
Rldgely, Morris and Kirman will each
lie speakers, and that Dunn, Hard
castle, Maloney, Boyce and young
Pardee will lie clerks. But you can
wager a fish ltall
is, if J)an Rhlgely goes into that House
caucus to-night to make a tight for the
speakership, he'll win. As to the clerk
ship, well, even the I>esL posted of the
leaders haven't the least i«lea this
