lot him remember that silenco is tho 1111
kiudest cut of nil.
It 1ms been settled for somo days that
Mr. Carlislo is to bo tho now secretary of
tho trensury. Ho notified Mr. Cleveland
two weeks ago of his nccoptanco and

what I want to say. I linvo heretoforo
expressed tho opinion that Mr. Carlislo
is tho most intellectual man in tho pub
lic life of this country, and I am natu
rally glad to linvo my opinion confirmed
by so eminent an authority as Grover
Cloveland. To a certain eminent gen
tleman who called on him n few days
ngo and mentioned Carlisle, Mr. Clevo
lnnd said, with something like enthusi
asm: "I am happy to bo ablo to tell you
Mr. Carlislo has accepted tho treasury
portfolio. Carlisle, in my judgment, is
tho greatest man in America."
"Not excepting yourself, Mr. Clevo
lnnd?" tho caller smilingly inquired.
"I except no 0110," was tho response.
Mr. Carlisle's friends think ho is mak
ing n great mistake. They say that aft
er lie lias worked himself to death for a
fow years in tho cabinet ho will find it
im08siblo to get back into tho senate
und will find himself out in tho cold.
But these friends need not worry. I am
going to strain a point in confidence to
tell you thnt Mr. Carlislo will go from
tho cabinet to tho supremo bench.
How (pieer it is thnt a woman always
sticks to tho bird in tho hundt Now,
there's Mrs. Carlisle, n flno Kentucky
woman of charming innnners nnd keen
political judgment. When tho Repub
licans obtained control of tho house two
years ngo, und Mr. Cnrlisle saw n chnnce
to go to tho sennte, Mrs. Carlisle said to
"Don't you do it, John. Stay right
whero you aro. Tho Democrats will re
gain control of tho house nt tho next
election und will hold it for six or eight
yenrs, and you will bo re-elected speaker
just as long as you want it. A seiiutor
ship isn't to be compared with the speak
ership. Is it, John?"
But Mr. Carlisle decided to go to the
eennto and bus since said, probably n
hundred times, that ho wished ho had
accepted his wife's advice. Mrs. Carlislo
was not in favor of his going into tho
cabinet either. Let us hope thnt for once
a woman's intuition will turn out wrong.
Probably Judge Lindsay will bo Sen
ator Carlisle's successor. Of another dis
tinguished Kentuckian, also an aspirant
for tho scat which Carlislo is to vacate,
it is said ho would have been sent to tho
sennte years ago if it wcro not for his
habits. On henringthls a cynical friend
of mine romnrked:
"Judging frpin thn habits of somo of
tho Kentuc.kinns who do omo hero, what
must wo think of those who nro kopt at
homo on nccount of their hnbitt''"
Probably I can writo this thrust at
Kentucky with better grnco thnit most
men lcauso I have so oJ'f on expressed my
admiration for those geninl, hashing Ken
tucki.'ms. How somo of xhim manage
to dunk so much whisky und d?thosnmo
time to keep up apjxmnuirvA r.ud do good
work is 11 thiuglcouluntvrr understand.
Why, ft certain f&ujous Kentuckian
never thinks of letting a day pass with
out taking all the way from ten to twen
ty generous drinks of tho popular Ken
tucky boverage. Perhaps it is with tho
Kentuckiiins as Lincoln said it was with
Grant, " 'Twould bo a good thing if
other gonerals would try tho samo
Thero isn't a tenth part as much drink
ing nmong public men ns thero was ten
or fifteen years ngo, It is going out of
stylo. And yet not every ono thnt drinks
has a reputation for it. For instnuco, a
certain man who has been offered u seat
in Mr. Cleveland's cabinet, nnd who has
not yot nccepted I decline to particu
larize goes along ns sternly ns a clock
for about threo months and then disap
pears for a eouplo of weeks. "In Now
York on business." "In Chicngo."
"Gone south for ft fowdnys' rest." Thoso
are tho explanations given nt his office,
while the facts are ho 1b alone in somo
hotel room ns dumb as a lord! Yet ho
is a brilliant and safe man, and his occa
sional "still" is no affair of ours. As tho
women say, "You men are so funny."
Senator George Gray, of Delaware, has
declined a seat in Mr. Cleveland's cabinet,
and thereby hangs a tulo. Mr. CleveluuU
has a weakness for Thoinns A. Baynrd.
Mr. Bayard, na every ono who knows him
will certify, is indeed a charming man,
but for somo reason or other Mr. Clove
land didn't want him in the cabinet
again, though ho would like to have him
in Washington. So ho fixed up a nico
llttlo scheme. Senntor Gray was to bo
made attorney general, and that would

I but Mr. Gray has knocked it all in tho
head by declining. Georgo Gray is ouo
of tho strongest men in tho senate. He

Henry Calsit Lodgo is to Ik tho now
senator from Mussaehutetfs. His suc
cess bus spoiled it good story, anil it wan
very unkind in Mr. Lodge to go and do
it. Five or six years ago ono of tho
brightest newspaper forresistiidents in
Washington was Mr. William K. Bar
rett, of Boston. Ho was active, jH'isist
cut, skillful. Ono of his greatest friends
was Mr. Lodge, who has, among other
comforts and attractions, an income of
$110,000 a year, and precious lit lie of that
from literature. Why a ninn who has
$110,000 a year should bother his head
about history and musty old documents
in the state department is more than 1
can fathom. But that's another story,
as Kipling would say.
One day C01 respondent Barrett thought
he would like to linvo a pajn'r of his own.
Ho had his oyo on a Boston paper-the
one which ho was tho correspondent for
in Washington, Mr. Lodge was appealed
to and lespouded generously. Mr.
Lodge, through Mr. Barrett, bought tho
paper. In tho course of time, having a
genius for finance as well as journalism,
Mr. Barrett became solo owner. Then
ho went into politics, was elected to tho
legislature, praised somo men and lam
Koned others till ho won tho speaker
ship, was twico re-elected, and then,
though a mere stripling mid amateur,
set his mark for tho senate.
Last fall wo heard in Washington that
ho was going to win and that Mr. Lodge
would bo knocked out, and as fellow
journalists nnd admirers of nervo and
genius whenever wo see it wo were pro-

fato of tho ambitious statesman who
lent his journalistic friend $,000
with which to buy a newspaper, for,
don't you see, it was tho newspuper
which Mr. Lodgo bought for Mr. Barrett
that gave Mr. Barrett his political start
and made him a senatorial possibility.
It really is too bad of you, Mr. Lodge, to
spoil 11 good story in this cruel fashion.
I don't like to trench too much upon
tho domain of polities, but I was over in
Now York a few days ago, and while
thero heard a curious yarn. Unlike
somo curious yarns it was true, of which
I linvo the best evidence. Mr. Cleve
land lias been wanting to give u sent in
tho cabinet to Judge Walter Q. flresh
am, of Chicngo, for whom ho entertains
profound admiration. Mr. Cleveland
seems to be just tho man to do a bold
thing like that for it would bo a bold
thing for a president to take into his
cabinet a man who only four years ago
was a candidate for the presidency with
in tho rival party. Mr. Cleveland, I am
told, would liavo offered Judge Gresh
am tho secretaryship of state or the in
terior but for one thing, and that was a
strong hint through nil of Judge Gresh
am's friends thnt ho would not accept.
Speaking of Mr. Cleveland's enthusi
astic estimate of tho man who is to lie
his secretary of tho treasury reminds mo
that another man who stands very high
in tho good graces of tho president elect
is James C. Cnrter, of Now York. Prob
ably Mr. Carter is tho foremost lawyer
of tho metropolis, nt nny rate in admi
ralty nnd international cases. Ho is ono
of tho counsel for the government in the
Bchring sua arbitration, and will have
to go to Paris next month to appear be
fore tho court of arbitration. Would it
surprise you to hear of Mr. Cleveland of
fering tho secretaryship of state to Mr
I Carter? I don't say it will bo done, but
I know it has been under consideration
If Mr. Cleveland can't induce Don
Dickinson to tako it, possibly Carter will
bo tho man, Dickinson long ago decided
thnt ho wouldn't go into this cabinet.
He wants to muko somo money. But
Mr. Cleveland wants him, nnd wants
him so badly that tho chances nro Mr.
Dickinson will yield.
Every ono in Washington is glud to
hear Colonel Dun Lamont is coining
back. Ho is to bo a member of tho cabi
net this timo. That has been decided
upon for somo time. Ho may bo secre
tary of tho navy, tho post in which Mr.
Whitney made such a flno reputation,
and ho may be jiostuinstcr general. Dan
is a convenience to Mr. Cloveland; he
can bo shifted about from ono place to
another, as the exigencies of cnbinet
making may require. Every one here la
suro ho will be a success, no matter
where ho is put.
Do you know tho secrot of Dan's ro
mnrknblo influonco with Mr. Cleveland?
I do, and I'll print it for tho benefit of
offico seekers. Ho doesn't toady. In his
relations with Cleveland Dan has al
ways had a habit of speaking right out
in meeting. When he thought Mr.
Cloveland wns wrong ho has never hesi
tated to say so. They do say thut nt
times Dan brings too grcnt man "up
standing," as tho saying is. Now Mr.
Cleveland is a self willed man. Ho likes
to have his way about things pretty
much nil tho time. But like most stub
born men ho despises toadying and hoa
no use for a man who is nfrnld to sicuk
his mind. Walter Wki.lman.
