ADDITION 1 L I For speaker of the House of the com ing Legislature, numerous names have been mentioned, and it looks as if every presentative-elect, is for himself. This will occasion some trouble before it is finally settled, and the probabilities are that the Democrats and Regulars will also come out on top here. For clerk of the House, William M. Pro se of Magnolia, appears to be the choice of the party, but another candi date on Saturday threw his defi for the position in the arena and that was W. Scott Vernon, of the Daily Republican, Wilmington. There is no doubt but that Mr. Vernon would only too will inaly accept the honor with its paying perquisites, but—you know. j>vi G Sterner, of Camden, is named for the reading clerkship. The attorney's desk will bo offered to either William T. Smithers or Walter II. Hayes, whilst the chaplaincy will vert'likelv be presented to Rev. Edwin, of Oheewold.

We warn the leaders of the Democratic parly that the election of John Pvle to the speakership will materially help to Uefeat the party two years hence. Elect anybody te the place, but not John Pyle. —Joe Roane,i, Sunday Herald. ' J . The business men of VV llinington are taking time hv the forelock and are pre* paring a general incorporation bill to be presented to the next General Assembly. This is an excellent move, although it will prove futile at the coming session., Their bill will pass the Republican House, practically as they shall present it, hut it will not pass the Senate. The State Senate is precisely where it has been for twentv-two years, nt least, in the hands of the most powerful corporation in Del-1 aware. Railroad attorneys mutilated l !kmi™ SnHl'iT'vvas'raadc harmless a°"d stitution until it was maat narmicss anu unrecognizable by its best friends, and railroad attorneys and lobbyists defeated the bill proposed in 1897 and againi in 1898. They will defeat it again in 1899 A proper bill will not be passed until 1901 when the Senate will be Kepvibn can, as well as the House and when both bodies will be free of the railroad ty*! ranuy.— Republican re When the Legislature meets in Janu ary next the first duty for the Senate part of it is to elect a speaker. We are told that John Pyle is one of the candi dates fur the speakership. Now, what fias Pyle done to warrant him in de manding the position? He has been a figurehead ever since lie was sent to Dever and we cannot see any good in his selection. Pyle was a member of the greatest boodle Legislature which ever sat in Delaware, and it is men of his stamp who defeated the Democratic party on November 8. It is too bad for t he party that his time did not expire with the rest of the thieves. Let us be Sunday The correspondent of lUJMMphu, „ Inquirer had the following to say on the Senatorial light in tins Stale yesterday: Wilmington, Del.. Nov. 19.—Hating captured almost everything which was worth winning in the last election, flic Republicans have now turned lhcir_ at teution to the matter of electing a United States Senator to succeed George Gray, and the air is full of rumors as to what is to be done. Of course, the Democratic newspapers are shouting Addicks at the top of their voice in ttie hope of frightening some one, and John rilling, one of the Regular Republican members of the lower house of the Legislature, is out in an interview in which he says that lie would ashainod to go home from the Legisla lure again if lie had voted for Addicks. No one doubts t,hat Mr. Pilling believed just what lie said, but this is hardly the time to give out interviews to Demo-; cratic newspapers which are likely cause disruption in the Republican party. . • According Ij the best information which can be gained tlie Republicans botli sides are just now trying to find out whether there is to be a caucus held for United States Senator or whether candidate is to bo selected in open house, where each man will have a candidate until he chooses to drop him. Republicans, who are cral y known among the Democrats Addicks Republicans, have a majority houses on joint ballot should the Republican members caucus -that is, tho Regulars have fifteen and the Union Republicans sixteen of thirty-one Republican members of 1 wo houses. Matters have been reversed from when there was >\vi in tin* tw one what they were four years ago, ' n contest between llig and Addicks in the Legislature. as that the Regulars were men who were in favor of holding a can cus, and a majority of them did meet and nominate Anthony Higgins to ceed himself. The Union Republicans who were then in a minority and a small one, but large enough to prevent election of a Senator, did not believe going into a caucus, and refused to At that time everything possible said in favoi of King Caucus ruling people of the Republican party in two houses, but now matters have been pins Then it reversed. The Union Republicans, hav ug a majority of the caucus, are the friends of old King Caucus, while the Regulars, being iu a minority, are op posed to him. The upshot of the matter is likely to be that instead of first holding a caucus, t he Republican members of both sides of the Republican party or of the two uraucoes of the Republican party, art likely to hold a conference instead of a caucus, and at tins conference each side is expected to say for whom it will and for whom it will not vote. If this idea is carried out there is likely to be some very interesting scenes in the conference which has been planned, and some hard feeling is likely to result. On top of this announcement comes the announcement from Regular sources that there has been a deal nude by which Anthony Higgins is to go to the Senate this time, while J. Edward Ad dicks is to have the next term. 11ns is pretty enough on the face of it, but it has too many marks of improbability, The story is well vouched for, but there are some difficulties in the way. One of the difficulties is the Union Republican majority, The Union Republican party has for several years claimed that it is the Re publican party of Delaware, and the fact that it has sixteen of the thirty-one members elected by the Republicans to the General Assembly is regarded by the leaders of that party as a vindication of their claim. This being the case it is not likely that they will surrender to the Regulars on the understanding that Ad dicks is to go to the Senate the next time. Admitting for the sake of argument that all of the Union Republicans favor Addicks for Senator (and this is by no means certain) it would be a very fool ish move for them to make. At the present time they have a majority of the Republican members, and if they all voted for one candidate the Regulars 11 1 i _,i ; . • • .? c il w?« |d p aced in the portion of the a«tein P tmg to die ate to the ""W which would have the effect of cnpphng the Regular organization. ij " s « 8 " n ' e i ' n f f nfnnv all > be tolerated by the people of any P^y, . nd • would take a lot of cxpla lia ' 0 | '° ■* « f ll ? a " 01ld plu " ,f Addlcks ., 1,a8al 'l?

There arc too manv Regular Republicans who are oppoB ed' to liim and who would vote j aga j nfit h| in j n th c election.

The Republican parly does not intend to make the same kind of a record Hint it , did four years ago, when it continued to vote for a Senator until the session was' , over without arriving at 11 choice. To pursue such a course would be equivalent | to turning the State over to the Demo-1 ; cratic party again, and if the Democratic party chances to get control of the State ■ for another General Assembly it will make matters very interesting for Hie ! Republicans and will see to it that the Republicans will not have another ■ chance to win. Therefore, the Rcpubli j cans will, so far as lays in their power, | do all they can for the good of the stale, Wilmington, Del., Nov. 19.—.since the i year 1889,when J. Edward Addicks made 1 his meteoric appearance in tlie State capi j lal and with great benignanco offered himself ns a compromise between An (thony Higgins and George V. Massey the contest for the l T . S. Senatorship, . he has been a periodic spectre to the Re publican party. In each campaign waged 1 since that time the thought of Addicks' I candidacy for the United States Senate j lias been as an evil spirit hovering over the party. , ; In 1895, with a majority in the Legis lature, the Republicans found themselves ' in deadlock, because the supporters i Addicks continued faithful to the legend and refused to submit to caucus action unite with the opposing faction some Republican olher than Die ator ; Addicks. And so the ei fi spirit von and when, 111 1897, the Democrats had ! control of the General Assembly they j filled the place which the Republicans I had failed to fill by electing Richard j Kenney to the upper liouse of Congress. ; Once more the fortunes of war have I turned in favor of the Republicans, and the Legislature of 1899, to convene ! little more than six weeks hence, will 1 have the naming of a successor to George Gray. But the evil spirit of Addicksism lias not vanished and the State awaits the outcome with mingled foreboding and hope. Numbering hfty-two _ members alto gether, the coming Legislature will made up of thirty-one Republicans and twenty-one Democrats; the Senate con taining nine Democrats and eight Repuh-1 beams, and the House twenty-three Re publicans and twelve Demierats. Of the thirty-one Republicans in the General Assembly reliable Information classifies sixteen as anti-Addicks and fifteen as Addicks. Here are the names: Anti-Addicks—New Castle county— Senators Samuel M. Knox, First district; Webster J. BlaUdy, Third; J. M. Shakespeare, Fourth; Robert McFarlin, Fifth. Representatives James Hitchen, First district; Robert M. Burns. Second; James W. Robertson, Third; F.P.Ewing, Sixth; George Frizzel, Seventh; John W. Dennison, Eighth; John Pilling, Ninth; Theodore F. Clarke. Twelfth; Francis lattomus, Fourteenth. Sussex county—Representatives John Conaway, Fourth district; George, W. West, Seventh; David Hazzard, Tenth. Total, sixteen. Addicks—New Castle county—Repre sentative Harry W. Hushebeck, Tenth district. . _ . Kent county—Senators J. Frank Allee, Third district; S. John Abbott, Fifth, Representatives William A. Faries, First district; John Satterfield, Fifth; Jabez Jenkins, 8eventh; George C. Bering, Eighth; William Tharp, Ninth; David H. Frazier, Tenth. Sussex county—Senators Simeon S. Pennewill, First district; Isaiah J. Bra sure, Fourth; Representatives Mark L. Davis, First district; George S. Buell, Second; Wiliiam P. Short, Sixth; Joseph W. Hunter, Eighth. Total, fifteen. Strangely as it sounds, a rumor has into existence to the effect that j Sun. rr T Gray, ( ! | , j benefit of I'irst Citizen Ilules and others. | Uatcli on?

Horn says lie only devil ered half the goods, and for that reason he was given the marble heart. Editor Joe has sprung a little boomlet for James C. McCombs, of Claymont, for I United States Senator. IIow much? come ex-Senator Anthony Higgins is dealing with Addicks with a view to reaching a compromise on the question of the Sen atorship. The inception of such a rumor seems traceable back to the Republican State Convention, when Frederick E. Bach, Mr. Higgins' active lieutenant, advocated the nomination of Jonathan S. Willis for Congress, in spite of the fact that Bach and Higgins were identi fied with the Regulars and Willis was identified with the Union Republicans. The Bach-Willis deal for Congressman gives rise to the opinion that it was part of a pre-coiiceived scheme having the Senatorship ultimately in view. Another indication of a deal is ased upon ex Senator Higgins' zeal in hastening to Sussex county to give his aid in a con test there. The scheme would seem to be that Higgins shall receive the Addicks votes in January as the successor to Sen ator Gray, and Addicks shall receive the support of the Regulars when the next Senator is to be chosen.— Philadelphia Times. "What is worrying the Democrats now is the fear that tlie Democrats who voted the Republican ticket in the last election will continue to be Republicans. It has generally been true in Delaware that w lien a Democrat once voted the Repub lican ticket he remained a Republican until the end of time, and it is expected that this will be true in the case of the Democrats who voted the Republican ticket in the last election."— The Phila delphia Inquirer.
