Terms of Thirty Senators Expire in
March and Twenty-three Seats
Have Already Been Filled
Many New Faces.
WASHINGTON, Feb. S.-Of the
seats of thirty senators whose terms
of office expire the eonilni? i h of
March. 23 have been tilled by the var
ious state legislatures. In two states,
however, the struggle is still on, with
but few signs for an Immediate con
clusion being reached.
In New Jersey a determined effort
Is being made to prevent the return
of Mr. Pryden, the rich capitalist and
head of one of the great insurance
companies of the country. The light
against him Is not only personal but
because of the alleged fact that he Is j
a pronounced corporation man aivl j
representatives of those interests that
have Injured the reputation of the
party in the state. The chief diffi
culty of those opposing Mr. Dryden's
return appears to be the Impossibility
of centering upon any one of sufficient
strength to draw to him the few con
crete anti-Dryden republican votes or
induce the weak-kneed Dryden fol
lowers to enter into the enemy's camp.
In Rhode Island, the contest is an
endeavor to prevent the return of
George Peabody Wetmore, the man
who bears a name that a few years
ago was amply sufficient to conjure
with in the politics of any New Eng
land state. The opposition to Mr. Wet
more is badly divided and he and bis
friends have not given up the fight
by any means. Just where Mr. Al
drlch stands is supposed to be ques
tionable, although the senior senator
from Little Rhody declares he is keep
ing hands off and is as friendly to Mr.
Wetmore as to any of the other candi
dates, all of whom are his personal
Of those Senators who can read
their title clear to their seats, begin
ning with the Sixtieth Congress, sev
enteen have been reelected, and of this
group, possibly the most conspicuous
is Mr. Cullom, the venerable old man
from Iilioncis, who has been return
ed to his fifth election term in the
Senate. Mr. Cullom came out victor
ious in the first election held under
the new primary law, in a campaign j
in which he was handicapped by the
want of money, and his chief poli
tical asset. was his long and honorable
career in the public service ,in which
he had always looked out for the pub-
lip frnort na ho l-dk criv&n rn sot, tVw, !
method by which the greatest good
for the greatest number could be ac
complished, and the further fact that
hi? honesty could never be questioned.
He is a poor man and had he failed
of re-election it would have been dif
ficult for him to have ligured out just
how he would have made a living dur
ing his declining eyars. With such a
handicap, he won a signal victory over
other men who were not popular be
fore the people but who were ambi
tious and agressive opponents.
Among those elected to serve for the
first time and in the list of those re
elected, doubtless there are men who
may be subjected to criticism, because
of their methods in public life and
the records they have thus for achiev
ed, but there are many others whose
return is a distinct public oenefit, and
their retirement would have been a
loss not only to the slates that elected
them but to the country at large. In
this class may be named such men as
Frye, of Maine, Bacon, of Georgia, and
Morgan of Alabama. These and others
like them, are men of great use
fulness and of talents that are needed
in the construction of proper legisla
tion and exposing the fallacies of pro
positions that seem at limes to be in
imical to good government.
Going to the far South, it may be j
said that practically all Wa hington j
is glad to see the return of Mr. Ball- i
ey, of Texas. As to the great ability
of Mr. Bailey, no one has ever ex
pressed a doubt. When he speaks par
ticularly on legal questions, every law
yer in the Senate is required to take
notice. Wrhat will be the effect of tht
charges made against him in his own
state, remains to be seen. Mr. Car
mack, of Tennessee leaves the body at
a time when he was commencing to
show the stuff of which he is made.
For two or three years he was one of
the quiet members of the Senate. His
speech on the Brownsville affair a few
weeks ago opened the eyes of the Sen
ate to the capacity of the man for a
clear insight Into public questions and
his fine discernment with regard to
questions of law. He goes out of the
Senate accompanied by the sincere re
grets of his associates who only learn
ed to apreclate him when It was too
late. In the retirement of Mr. Berry,
of Arkansas, that small group of Con
federate soldier-statesmen becomes still
further diminished in number and in
fluence. Mr, Berry was not an orator;
members who accomplish m re In the
eommliti'e room by painstaking effort
than on the door through I be means
of their rhetorical power.
Nebraska has changed front entire
ly In the character of mm It now sends
to the Senate, Tht re was a time, not
so l ug ago, when her senators were
notoriously railroad lawyers and ad
vocates. In the selection of Senators
Hurkott and lirown the state now has
two strong atnl-ralltoad men repre
senting Iter, :i!v! '"' measure of rea
sonable corporation control undoubted
ly meet with their approval. The e
leetlons have eliminated exery demo
cratic senator from Northern states
but two, Messrs. Teller of Colorado,
and New land, of Nevada, lioth taese
states belong to the Hooky Mountain
group, and can hardly be classed as
"northern" in sentiment or Interest.
Among the new men, more interest
attaches to Mr. Guggenheim, who will
succeed Mr. Patterson, of Colorado, ( (inu,.
probably than to any other one man j mpUg
who will sit In the Senate. Ills large
we.ittn, as me tie;ut ot ore ct tne
great smelting works of the West, and
his other Investments would be sup
posed to put him In the class of cor
poration senators, but Mr. Guggen
heim has announced that he has re
tire 1 from active business affairs and
have ti the best interests of his state
wil devote whatever of talent he may
and country at large. He says he
wants to 1 a serviceable menwber of
Congress and has arranged his affairs
s.i that he will be free to suport all
measures that look to the general good.
Mr. Guggenheim's votes wil be watch
ed with interest.
The promotion of William', Alden
Smith to the Senate, after twelve years
of service in the House, will add
strength to the upper chamber. Such
m, n as Mr. Smith deserve promotion.
He is an expert on tariff and financial
matters and going to that end of the
capitol full of experience he will rnter
upon his duties there as well equipped
as many Senators who have almost
reached the veteran classification. As
u-uial lawyers predominate timing the
