The Secretary of State Vacancy
It is stated, on good authority, that the office of Secretary of State will soon be made vacant, by the resignation of that popular and efficient officer, the present incumbent, Mr. Ellis Phelan. It said that Mr. Phelan will resign on account of his health. There is greatly to be regretted. Mr. Phelan has made a good officer. Many good men are spoken of for the place. Among the many worthy ones, Mr. William L. Clay, the present efficient Secretary of the Senate, is earnestly urged by his friends. Mr. Clay has been Secretary of the Senate for many years, and his experience in that office will peculiarly fit him for the high and responsible office of Secretary of State, should he be appointed. He is capable, faithful to duty, and as worthy as the worthiest.
