downfall of hundreds of Washington
"The Alan race track is a curse to
Idaho and Washington." said Senator

Long Struggle for Control Is

CHEYENNE. Wyo., Jan. 30. In ses

Speaker Pratt nominated a commit
tee consisting of himself,-three organi

crats. A subcommittee nominated by
Judge Met a by resolution named four
Democrats and three Republicans, elim
inating the Speaker. .
The Speaker appointed as a commit
tee of rules himself and two Republi
cans and two Democrats, and on roll
call it was apparent the Speaker con
trolled the Republicans.
The Democrats attempted to put
through a test vote on the committee
on elections, and the Speaker called a
Republican to the chair, whereupon
Judge Metz called upon Representative
Wood, a Democrat and Speaker pro
tern., to take the chair. Speaker Pratt
pulled Wood from the chair, assumed It
himself, and the House broke into tu
mult, with both speakers assuming
authority, giving contradictory rulings.
Caucus Is Held.
After adjournment this afternoon the
Democrats caucused on the Metz com

the Democratic subcommittee on privi
leges and elections.

night. Senator Chamberlain was not
disposed to discuss what transpired at
the conference, but admitted he had se.
cured no promises from Governor Wil
son, and had no Idea who would be ap-
pointed Secretary of the Interior, or
from what section of the country he
will bo chosen. Governor- Wilson said
nothing that committed him to any
candidate or to any action, but did say
his mind was still open on this ap.
pointment, and that he was glad to
hear from all who could throw any
light on the availability of various
aspirants. Governor Wilson alluded to
a joint letter sent him last week by
Western Democratic Senators, but
made no comment upon it.
Senator Chamberlain said tonight
that during the conference with Gov
ernor Wilson he strongly insisted upon
the appointment of J. N. Teal, of Port
land, and that he gave many reasons
why Teal is the most available man
for this office. He also said that, while
Senator Newlands voiced first prefer
ence for Clay Tallman, of Nevada, he
strongly recommended the appointment
of Mr. Teal if Mr. Tallman is not to be
considered, and seed that Mr. Teal's ap
pointment would be acceptable to him
and to other Western Democratic Senators.
Senator Chamberlain admitted, how
ever, that he came back from Trenton
no better Informed as to Governor Wil
son's Intentions than before, and he
would not venture a guess as to who
will be appointed.
