t, WILLIAMS AND CANNON.
Political Enemies But the -Best o
e Personal Friends.
', zach. McGhee in the State.
, Washington, May 12.-'Every one
c here knows of my personal affection
I- for the speaker of this house," were
r the words of John Sharp Williams,
the democratic leader, in a speech on
e the floor of the house a few weeks
ago. Then he proceeded to make a
most scathing denunciation of the
rules of the house and the methods
e of governing, for which lhe held the
speaker in tihe main responsible. La
ter on as his attack grew in warmth,
some one on the republican side in
terrup)ted to remindl him of his dlee
5 larat ion of affection for Mr. Cannon
0 withI which lhe had startedl out. ''Per
sonal affection, I said,'" replied Mr.
Williams, ''not political."
This personal friendship het ween
0these two bitter political antagonists,
0 the leaders of thle two parties in theI
h uouse, who never fail to strike at each
- ote ihall the mighty strength
each possesses, is knowvn not only to
7 the members of the house but it is of
national note, having been the sub
3 ject of frequent publicity and wide
5 comment. In an earlier day one would
- have been disposed to ask if their an
tagonism in the lists of political de
2 bate and manoeuvre interferes with
their personal friendship. But so
3 great is the good feeling of these days
gthlat the question peop)le ask is rath
er, Does not their friendship inter
6fere with their political antagonism?
6For the country expects and requires

It was my privilege, a rare one in
(deed, at the birthlday party the oth
6 er night to witness a scene between
these tw~o great antagonists, a scene
e which, all-in-all, I think, was one of
e the prettiest I hlave ever been privi
leged to witness. By chlanee, I was
'the only newvspaper man present, so

fWilliams came up to say good night.
5, "I came to tell you good night, Mr.
Speaker, and to say that I hope you
a will have many more like this," he
f said, holding out his hand.
r Mr. Cannon was writing his name

niouti and wabbled up and down as
lie spoke. Mr. Williais st.ood ia few
feet away. The two statesinen look
ed into each otlier's faces for a mo
ment in silence, holding each other's
hands and the kindly, genial counte
nance of each beaming with the ten
derest rega'd. Neither uttered more'
than the fewest ivords, and the elo
quence was in the gentleness of their
voices and their affectionate atti
tudes. "Good night-John Sharp
God bless you," said the speaker
slowly, emphasizing each word as he'
is wont to do when presiding over
theh ouse. "We fight-and we hit
hard blows-but."-here lie slowly
raised his loose hand and made a cir

i ams-''we never'-hit-blowv--the
belt.-And1 while I shall fight with all
the str'engthr I have left,-! feel no un
easiness that. if' you win-the country;
Mr'. Williams pressed the hand a'
little tighter. "'I thank you, Mr.
Speaker," he said simply. "May wve.
hoth live toi hit many more blowvs."~
And as lie walked slowvly arway,
edlginig his way through the vast.
cr'owd, followed by the affectionate'
gaze of "Uncle Joe," every one of
thel ittle group who chanced to be
standling near must have thought what
a simple yet magnificent exhibition
''That stern joy whlich wvarriors feel
in foemen worthy of their steel."
His Reason. '
"Now then, Tommy," said the
teacher, "is it right to say 'the wvin
ter has wvent?' "
"No 'm I" yelled Tommy pr'omptly'.
"'Cause if yer did me foist thing:
yer know along would come a bliz
zard an' make yer out a liar."
