ty well eett\ed that tho usual vote of
thanks to tlie Speaker for hls falrness
and. courtasy wlll not bo voted at the

Mr. Hleharclson and Speaker Hender?
son met ln a cloak-room at the House
thls afternoon. There had been six
hours of constant wrangllng on the floor.
Henderson was ln a temper and Mr.
Iflcuardson was not In a good humor.
The Speaker approached Mr. Rlohard?
son and ln angry tones declared he
would not recognlzc another Democrat
unless he wero ohllged to.
"Very well," replled Mr. Richardson,
"t shall construo your words to mean
that thenceforward all courteay shall
coa.se. That suits tho Democrats cx-.
actly." '\yith theso words he left the
lt ls now understood that the usual
vote of thanks proposed by a Demo?

Unless the mlnorlty refuscd to extend
a vote of thanks to Mr. Reed at tlie
close of hls flrst year as Speaker, lt is
belleved thero had never been an In
stancfi of thls klnd In tha hlstory of the

tho presldlng ofneer of the Flfty-seventh
