WASHINGTON , November 1C. Prominent -
inont republicans are much in favor
of thu nomination of Gon. Sheridan ,
Bo haa the friendship of Grant with
out having incurred the hostility of
Grant's enemies , and it is calculated
that ho can got the Catholic vote , the
Irish vote and the soldier vote. Shori-
dau'a military career might not afford
much clue to his presidential policy ,
but it would enable campaign orators
to wake much enthusiasm and become
very eloquent without committing
themselves hopelessly on the issues of
the day. One of the growing issues
ia tar ill' , a dry matter , the statistics of
which it takes a good deal ofjpatiouco
and industry to understand und
campaign orators would bo glad
enough to got away from advalorcm
and taxation and thu relation of
coat to profit , and send Early whirling
up the Shenandoah , or tight over
again the battle of Winchester , subse
quent to Sheridan's arrival on the
Held. There is , by the way , n strong
proapecb that congress this winter will
perpetuate the grades of general and
lieutenant general. Such action would
bo gratifying to Sheridan and Han
cock , the two most popular oflicers in
the service , and more li'ccly to bo
gratified because each ia closely iden

A LIVELY INTERVIEW WITH TUB MIS-
Spuci.i' tl the Cincinnati Commercial.
WASHINGTON , November 14. The
Critic has the following interview with
Senator Vest :
"Colonel , " said the reporter , "it
looks as though the democrats had
made a clean swoop in Missouri thin
time except in the Ninth congressional
district , where it appears that Dr.
McLean , republican , has beaten Col.
"Yes , and I think Col. Broadhoad
is elected. That seemed the general
impression when I left St. Louis Sat
urday night. However , if Broadhead
is beaten , ho can attribute it ip two
causes only , to-wit : The liberal use
of money by McLean , who has an axe
to grind in congress , and the unusual
stupidity of the St. Louis Republican ,
which paper took occasion tu make an
unwarranted attack upon Lirry Har-
rigan , the democratic nominee for
ehentF. This attack cost Broadhoad
six hundred votes at ono voting pre
cinct alone. It simply shown the folly
of papers being a little too previous. ' ' *
"Senator , whom do you think the
Missouri delegation will favor for
speaker of the Forty-eighth congress ? "
"Carlisle , of Kentucky. Every
member from Missouri is in fiver of
him save ono. "
"Who Is he ? "
"When I say ono I .mean Judge
Buckuer. I say this because ho has
always been a warm supporter ot Sim
Randall. I do not know , however ,
that Judge Buckner will support Mr.
Randall this time. I do know that if
ho does ho will do it in opposition tn
the wishes of these who elected him. "
"Why do yon favor Mr. Carlisle ,
Soiutor , for speaker , na I take it you
do , from what you uaj ? '
"Bocauso ho ia .
a broad-gaugo man.
Carlisle is a man who is not hampered
by any narrow views on any eubject
lie ij ) a man who is libaral and con-
eorvativn on all questions lie is a
man of largo brain and Is not at all
vain in anything , lie will'if elected
speaker , and ho will bo as sure as he
lives , so form his committees aa to
give satisfaction to all sections , where
as , if Sam Randall wore to bo chosen ,
he would do as ho has done
in the past , organize the house com
mitteea in the interest of a high pro
tective tariff and the monopolies of the
the country , which would result in the
defeat of the democratic party in 1881
You will observe ( hat Mr , Randall , in
the formation of his committees in the
forty-fourth and forty-sixth con
greanea , so org-ini ; : d thorn aa to com
plotuly disgust thu people , und vro nut
only lost the house , but the presi
dency , by his bull-hoidodnoaa in the
Itorest of eastern monopolies However -
over , I do not think it is necosaary to
discuss the speakorahip , for the reason
that I am satisfied that Carlisle will
get it on the Tint ballot in the demo
cratlo caucus , "
' 'Well , senator , what about the
other oflbera of the house ? "
"I think John G , Thompson , of
Ohio , will bo sergoant-at arms Ho
ought to have it. Ho has done yeo
man service for the party , and men
who do the work are the men who
ought to bo rewarded. "
"Who have you in your mind for
clerk , senator ? "
"Well , the organization of the
house belongs to members of the
house and not to senators , but I would
in the matter of the selection of clerk
as in other officers , suggest that ul
jectious bo properly represented and
therefore , would say that the clerk
nhouldcomo from the oaat. "
"Havo you any ono in your mind
for the plnce ? "
"I have not. "
"How would ( x-Congroesmau W.
S. Stcngor , of Pennsylvania , do , sena
tor ? "
"Ho member of the
was a Forty-
fourth , was ho not ? "
"y.cs , sir. "
"Ho would ba a capital selection ,
He is a man of ability , character and
standing , both ns a citizen mid poli
tician , lie is a good organizer , and
comes from the right sociton , "
"Have you any ono in your mind
for doorkeeper ? "
"I think that the houno could not
do bettor than elect General W. A ,
Field , of Georgia. He was the door
keeper of the last democratic house ,
and a bettor officer than ho made
would bo hard to find , I think with
Carlisle for speaker ; John Thompson ,
of Ohio , for scrguaiit-at-arms ; Stongor ,
if Pennsylvania , for clerk ; Field , of
Georgia , fur doorkeeper , and the poet *
master from the Pacific coast , there
could not ba any grumbling as hero-
oforo. Besides , all sections would bo
jroporly represented in the organiza
tion of the house. You will observe
.hat the east has but a small number
of democratic members elect. As
lear as I can estimate she
tas , counting Maryland and
Delaware , 47 members , aa follows :
tlaaaachuaotto 3 , Connecticut 3 , Now
fork 21 , Now Jersey 3 , Pennsylvania
12 , Delawnro 1 , Maryland 4. The

3o you will BOO that by choosing the
fliaorj of the Forty-eighth congress
rom the state's I have indicated , jus-
ice will bo done to all. "
"Well , senator , dropping the or
ganization of the house and coming to
.nothur important political question ,
! desire to have your opinion aa to
vho ia most likely to bo the demo
cratic nominee for president. Tn
other word ? , do you not think if Mr.
Cleveland , governor-elect for thostato
of New York , makes a reasonably
; oed governor and keeps the two
wiags of the democratic party to
gether , thereby preserving harmony ,
hat ho will be a very formidable man
or the nomination ? '
"If ho does as you suggest , ho is as
good as nominated now. "
"What about v'ice president ? How
will Joe McDonald , of Indiana , do ? "
"Sploudid. I had rather vote for
Joe McDjnald for president than any
iiau in the United States. I think
10 would make the beat president wo
lave had ( or years , but if Cleveland
does as you indicated a while ago ,
nothing can prevent his nomination
and election. With him or Joe
