Dunholt task of making up the committees perplexing problems Best sides of men and the worst More pegs Plum holes. Washington dec. 14. A special a making up the committees of the House is a difficult task. It grows More difficult every year As the country gains in size and the political and personal Competition becomes Keener. Speaker Beed has had a Bard time of it. He has. Had so Many More pegs than holes to put them in that he has been compelled to sit up nights wrestling with the problem. During the period that he has been engaged in this task it has been interesting to watch the actions of the men most interested. The ordeal has served to bring out the Best and the worst of human nature. One congressman made an open attempt to Bluff the speaker by informing him that unless he the congressman received the committee place which he wanted the Delegate from his District to next year s National convention would be opposed to the nomination of or. Reed for the presidency. It is scarcely necessary to Eay that to was quickly sat Down upon by the big speaker. Went the wrong Way. This rash Man was a new member and had come up to Washington with the idea that that was the Way politics is carried on. He Learned a lesson of which to evidently stood very much in need. By this time he knows that an open rank offensive bid of that sort could not to tolerated by any self respecting Man. If on the other hand he had induced has senator or some other influential person to go to the speaker and intimate that so and so naming the congressman seemed to be a rising Man in his state and that he already had his District Safe in his pocket for congressman and everything else and that perhaps he would make a Good Man for such and such committee that would have been Good politics and possibly might have produced the desired results. Another congressman and one of Long experience in the House set out deliberately to intimidate the speaker. He contrived to serve notice that unless his claims wore recognized he would Bevery Likely to make trouble on the floor at opportune moments. Or. Reed was not much frightened at this Covert Tigreat. He has had experience with such gentlemen in the past. But having sincere respect for the ability and usefulness of the member in question he has been Broad enough not to take umbrage at the course pursued by that gentleman and it is understood the intimidator will be properly taken care of. Those Are samples of the sorts of cases the speaker has had to Deal with. Members Aro of Romely eager to get assignments to Good committees. Tho Large number of new men in Tho House without previous experience has tended to add to tie difficulty of the speaker s task. Senators and prominent men of the party not in Public life have been brought in to use their influence with the speaker. Letters and telegrams by the hundreds have poured in from the friends of aspirants. Throughout the whole Campaign a quiet almost furtive Effort has been made on Tho part of the ambitious gentlemen to play upon the possible events of next year but Only in a few instances has this been offensively done. It is said by or. Reed s intimate friends that he has rigidly excluded from consideration All such suggestions and intimations. He has made no promises and will make none. A difficult Choice. Some of the most perplexing problems with which Tho speaker has had to Deal Are those growing out of rights of seniority. An instance and perhaps Tho most puzzling one of All. Is found in Tho chairmanship of the committee on appropriations for which general Henderson of Iowa and or. Cannon of Illinois were rival candidates. They Aro both Strong men and either it was All along Cua ceded would make an admirable chairman of the great committee which parcels out Uncle Sam s 1350,000,000 a year. On considerations of personal Merit it was difficult to choose Between them. When their claims of precedence were considered the conundrum became still More Cloudy. In the last Congress before this general Henderson s name appeared at the top of the list of Republican . According to one interpretation of Tho tradition this gave him a Prima Facie right to Tho chairmanship. To is Tho senior Republican so far As the record shows. But or. Cannon s friends came instantly Forward and pointed out that As a matter of fact he was the senior Republican and not general Henderson that to served 16 in in order to work himself up to chairmanship of that committee that he became Clairman in the fifty first Congress and that general Henderson was a member under him that Henderson has never been at the Lead of Tho committee is Cannon has been and that in fact Henderson did not enter the House of representatives till Cannon had become a Veteran in the service with ton years experience behind Hon. The friends of or. Cannon argued that to did not lose his position won through patient and extended toil Fly one Accident. They said it was unjust to deprive a Man of All the fruits of his Long career simply because disaster overtook his party in one election. They declare that there was no reasonable Rule by which or. Cannon could be held responsible for his defeat for re election in 1890, a year in which half the rep Billoan members of the House were compelled to bite the dust. With such Strong arguments on both sides is it any wonder that the speaker found it a hard nut to crack perhaps the hardest in All the committee Job ways that Are dark. Committee ambition has brought out the Best As Well As the worst sides of men. I know inane men who have tried to pull Down prominent members of their own state delegations who were hoping to be appointed to important chairmanships. They did this by aside remarks by tale hearing by malicious hints and their purpose of course was to improve their own chances by keeping the big plums from falling to their state. In distribution of chairmanships an Effort is always made to Reno Golze All the states and As equitably As possible hence when a big chairmanship goes to a Given state the Chance of Tho other members of the delegation getting what they want is lessened by just so much expended capital. Other members have shown the most generous spirit. They have called on Tho speaker and urged him to give their state the big chairmanship no matter if it did interfere with their individual prospects. Still others have stood by their friends regardless of their own interests. W4t, we . Mrs. Harry Henderson. The sad death of a Well known woman a other deaths. My. Charlotte Henderson wife of or.
