   Burlington Hawk-Eye (Newspaper) - February 21, 1890, Burlington, Iowa                                THE EBTABUSHBD FRIDAY FEBRUARY 15 CHITS AN EHP1Y IRE OEIfiClaYlC SPEitER IS IEBLT Haaie Are Tied and the BeavMl With All Important Commit tees WIU CMtrol RAWKKTB I V DEB At last the deadlock ii over and the members on both an greatly re Aa in all compromises neither tide can claim to have gained a The fight WM made on the as a matter of and with the yielding of that the democrats claim they won Primarily they would eeem to be but when other con are brought oat their claim cannot be There mare than one in which to fight for a and the republican readily recognized this So long there WM any proapect of getting a fair divi of thing with a republican speaker they held out for it but the more they the more they negotiated with the opposition the more plainly did it appear that the opposition cared more for the mere figurehead of spanker than they did for all the principle Matters were finally narrowed down to a finish It wai caie of give up the speekership or go back on all clainu heretofore The democrats tried desperately to get something but when it was brought out in such and adroit alti mative manner that they must either make a give or take proposition or ac cept the republican proposition they could not do other than they They feared the democratic wraih throughout the state they were afraid if they gave up the speaker they would never be for But they felt none too good over the matter and were emphatically con clemned by outside leaders for the action The outsiders at first plain ly showed their disgust and dis but they finally came round and began boasting of the glorious democratic What influenced the republican so strongly in making the concession the fact that they can by having control of the principal snd a larger number of defend their principles as effectually as if they had the speaker besides this they have assumed the attitude of standing Mide in order to allow public business to bo transacted and the public will heartily endorse them in this The dem ocrats can only say they have the pre siding officer they are powerless to move in any way disadvantageous to the re and with a speaker bereft of all power they cannot be expected to do anything in shaping The members of both houses were talking over matters this and your correspondent gathered up a few viewa on the The expressions of opinion were about as follows Senator think on the whole our side has the better side in this The democrats have all the hurrah and but that ia as far as it We will have all the we witi shape and can nmke a record that will be sustained by the people in succeeding Representative of Des am quite well satisfied with the It was decided before we asked anything that we would accept the because that rep resented all we had been fighting But on the whole it seems to me the re publicans have the better Bide and will have more power when it comes to real line inosj Representative Tergery settlement of the deadlock is a great relief to me and 1 am rather glad it came out as it We have the power and they have the For a while things will look as if they were on but when the house once get to work they and the people generally will see tiat they am deeply in the Representative Dyers rep am well pleased at the apposition having their drum mejor so long ai we have the real working We have the ad vantage when it comet to legislation and shall not be slow to use Representative Dobson am glad the deadlock is We can now get down to and as the republi cans have a great advantage so far as legislation is concerned we can well con sider ourselves on Senator Kelly came very near having to adopt my idea of casting lots to settle the and it is hard to see how they frot out of As it stands now neither side has any great advant The republicans may move more powerfully in but when par tisan matters come up on the floor of the house there will be no difference in Senator Tajlor dem I consider the aettlement alike fair and The ahorn of all its power is not very great and consists only of the hon Of course the republicans in the committee they control can substitute a republican measure for a democratic one and thus claim all credit but on the floor of the house when it really comas partisan matters there will be no advantage either Senator Gobble sides made a good tight and have reached a very fair settlement We can now get to work and do tor which we Bay all be Representative Blchman am perfectly satisfied with the Representative of Washing ton rep I am well satisfied with the The agreement was the beat that could be made under the circumstances and I think the people of the state will consider it M the best war to arrange Representative der the I the best thing to be though I think the republicans should have given us the assistant postmistress and two more of the Legislation is largely done in sad while a
