SPEAKER REED'S TYRANNY.
The "growl" between Speaker
Heed of the House ol Heprcsenta
tives and the Democrats may be
bneily explained. It has been the
custom from awav back for mem
bers, when they wished to shirk the
responsibility of voting although
present, to have themselves recorded
as absent. This was lying to their
constituents, who might be pacified
by excuses for their repicsentalive's
absence, when they would refuse to
be iccouciled to the gross cowardice
of their representatives in evading
a vote when piescnt. The piactice
was, however, under Speaker Heed's
eye, attempted to he employed in
obstructive tactics of the Demo
cratic minority. A sullicient num
ber ol these to pi event a quorum by
their absence attempted to give
themselves a fictitious absence for
that purpose by peisonally answer
ing "absent" to the roll call. The
Speaker "could mil see" it while
seeing these members in the cham
ber, and therefore directed the clerk
to record all as "present" who were
there. For this manly action the
Speaker is denounced as a tyrant by
his political opponents. He .simply
acted on the converse of the Irish
showman's caution, "Nobody ad
mitted utiles- lie conies himself,"
by saying in effect, "Nobody allow
ed to be absent utiles- he stays
A TRIFLE TOO COLLOQUIAL.
It was the excellent practice of
the teachers in the Washington pub

This not only familiarizes the pupils
with our best literature, but teaches
them to lead understandingly and
to wiite each in his own independ

In a Mpeeeh on the eve of the
election, which was never published,
the speaker made a distinct appeal
to mob law lor the suppression of
the liberty of the native opposition
press in the event of the Reform
Patty's winning the election. The
question may now be asked whether
the orator is ashamed of his base
ness since the vapors of the contest
have condensed in the dews of de

Considering the abounding tech
nical pitfalls for the unwary in the
new election law, it might be as well
tor disappointed candidates to go
slow in bringing opponents to the
iingholt for minor infractions of the
letter. What is sauce for the goose,
remember, may also garnish a de
funct male bird of that genus. Pro
secutions for anything but the cor

might vety decently be shunned by
both pai tics under the peculiar cir
ouniitaiices pioduced by the opera

We have given lroiu a New York

An amicable settlement of the
