TO PRETTY ROW I
AMONG DEMOCRATS, i
Gordonites Seek to Overthrow Col- i
onel Guffey's Leadership
Representative Fow, oi Peculiar Memory ,
and Author of Queer Bills, Leads the '
Fight, But He Gets Cold Com
fort From the Straight
Harrlsburg, Nov. 23.—There is a pret
ty row on in the Democratic party in
Pennsylvania. It is all over the oppo
sition of the Gordonites to the contin
uance of the leadership of Colonel
James M. Guffey and to the desire of
the friends of Judge Gordon to help
out the Wanamaker combination in
their plans to advance the political In
terests of the Philadelphia millionaire
and his Republican associates.
That Wanamaker has given up all
hope of being elected to the United
States senate Is now apparent. His
managers, while still in touch with
the Democrats, are trotting out C. W.
Stone and John Dalzell for United
States senator, to divide the Republi
can vote. Meanwhile Mr. Guffey i3
getting in his fine work lining up the
Democrats. Mr. Guffey has never been
known to enter into any business or
political deal without expecting a full
return for any expenditures that might
be made. It is well known to out
siders that In the last three weeks of
the state campaign the Democratic
managers made up a pool and put up
Individual collaterals upon which 1100,-
000 was raised to be spent in certain
counties to elect Democratic members
of the legislature. The present United
States senate stands 44 to 40 against
the Republican party, and with visions
of Democratic control of the senate bo
fore them the Guffeyites were very lib
eral in their expenditures. The Dem
ocratic machine had nevfr handled
such great rolls of cash, and with their
allies in the Wanamaker organization
the ' succeeded In unexpected quarters.
Guffey, now having eng'aieeted and
financed the Democratic campaign, be
lieves that he is entitled to the honor
of the Democratic caucus nomination
for United States senator. The Gor
don-Mutchler combine has, however,
trotted out Chauncey F. Black as a
candidate for United States senator,
and are lighting Guffey at every point.
Guffey believes the Democratic party
should stand by its colors and place
a strong man, a good Democrat, in
the field for the speakership of the
house of representatives.
IN FAVOR OF GUFFEY.
The officers of the Democratic state
organization are of the same mind, as
was evidenced by an address to the
Democratic members-elect issued by
Secretary Van Dyke, of the Democratic
state committee, who indignantly re
sents the idea that the Democratic
members shall be used to pull the
chestnuts out of the fire for the Wan
amaker Republicans. He conies out
squarely in favor of Colonel Guffey for
United States senator, calls attention
to his record as a valiant fighter for
hi? party and the self denying manner
In which he has always given his time,
money and services to the party.
The most conspicuous advocate of
coalition with the Wanamakerites in
the legislature by the Democrat-, la
Representative John H. Fow, author
of the "Fow bill," and other iniquitous
measures that have brought denuncia
tions upon his head from almost every
county In the commonwealth. Fow,
whose Democracy has frequently been
questioned, and who was, through a
deal, on both the Republican and Dem
ocratic tickets, has met with many
turndowns from Democrats who de
cline to enter Into negotiations with the
selfish Wanamaker-Van Vaikenberg-
It is safe to predict that Colonel Guf
fey will win out his fight.
Meanwhile the Republicans arc
quietly canvassing among their num
ber in the interest of the several Re
publican aspirants for the speakership.
Voorhees of Philadelphia, Bliss of Del
aware, McClain of Lancaster. Marshall
and Hosack of Allegheny, and the
others. There is no question that the
Republican caucus nominee will be
elected by practically the full party
Representative Frank U. Harris, who
has Just been triumphantly re-elected
from Clearfield county, and who was
here a few days ago, has come out flat

The fight against the re-election of
