This I. the view O—.rglsnn at this end of Ihe line lake of Mr Deaken's ran. dldary. He must realise that he haa no show of defeating Col. l.estcr. Indeed, there ore many Republicans who are anx ious for Col. lister to remain In Con gresa, because of his liberal nnd broad mind'd statesmanship In dealing with great national questions. Fancy, for an Instant. Ihe voters of fta vsnnnh. disregarding their own commer cial Inleresls to the extent of sending Col. Dester Into retirement, and substi tuting for him the gmial and affable Mr. Deaken. The lalier would come to Wash ington al Ihe very lime when Havannah needs an Influential man to represent her In Ihe House, If the Democrats should carry Ihe House, what would become of Mr. Deaken when the committee assign ments are made? Would he go on the River and Harbor Committee, one of the most desirable committees next to the Committee on Appropriations? Not much. He would he hurled at the tail-end of some Insignificant committee, where he would never he heard from, and It might lake iwo or three terms for him to se cure one-half the recognition that Col. Dealer enjoys. On Ihe other bond, should the Democrats elect the next Speaker. Col Dester. as the ranking Democrat on tha committee, wou'd naturally aucceed lo the chairmanship Even If the Republi cans retain control of the House. It Is quite likely that the Colonel will retain his place on the ooromittee at the head of she minority.
