A dim Johnson t Son Virtlmlterl By
RsaDinq, Pa., N v. 17. -A number of
Piiilaueipbla merchants have been victim
zed by a party operating under the name
of Adam Johnson A Son. The swindl'ng
eames have come to light to-day by pre
sentation of checks at three of tbe banks of
this cl.y, which were pased on Monday by
confJiing merchants, and have Just turned
up for collection. The Prank In Iron
Work", a large manufacturing establish
ment lo Reading, has been operated for
years by the respec able firm of Adam
Johnson 4 Son. Their honored name has
been used by a swindler, who has had
checks and letter-heads with the firm's
mime thereon, plttra'.izing, however, the
word "Son." A church organ shipped to
them by Shumacker & Co., of Philadel
phia, valued ut J'2'.O, is at the freight sta
tion in t is city, and packages of diamonds
and Jewelry carefully sealed are in the ex
press i ffl.'e. It is supposed that they were
purchased and checks tendered In payment
fi r amounts larger than the bills, the
swind It r pocketing the difference. A chi ck
amounting to came to hunt to-day,
and It is supposed that tbe swindling
transactions will run Into thousands of dol
lars. Among Philadelphia tirras reported
to.avebeeii swindled are tbe jewelry
houses of Bailey, Hanks & Hiddle, J. E.
Caldwoll and Genre K. Dearborn, also S.
Sc.uniitcker &Co., dealer In musical in
struments. A letter was received by thn
firm ol James DuUttbrrty, No. 2SI Alter
street, Pul adelpliia, staling th ti a number
f bank checks, filled up nndsluned "Adam
Johnson & jions, " wtp found tn the
Scliuylkile Uiver, near Gray's Kerry. It In
supposed Ibat the swindler threw them Into
the river so as to destroy these evi
dences of gulit. Tlio swindler
i::V' the name In Pnlladelplila of
Benjamin A. Johnston of the firm mention
ed, and a number of letters addressed to
that name are now in the Readmit post
office. The firm of Adam Johnston & Son
have declared tbe checks now in tbe bank
to be forgeries. They have Instructed tbe
the postmaster not to put any letters into
their box addressed to Benjamin A. John-'
ston. Several years ago the senior member
of the firm of Adam Johnston & Son. now
deceased, was made tbo victim of a "boo
dle" game lu Philadelphia, and the party
using tbe firm's name In the present swin
dling operations Is bellevod to have been
Interested lu tbe "boodle" dodge.

C s ailed upon Mr. Carlisle. This morn

hut he wa not fortunate enough to find
the New York member In. A great many
more correspondents called during the day,
br.'ti upon Mr. Cox and Mr. Carlisle, than
"uihers. M r. Cox, after being asked for
thn twenty-fifth time to-day for an Inter
view, aid to your correspondent: "One
would think by the urgency and presence
nf such a crowd of reporters that the fate
of the republlo hti g on tbe choice between
tbre or four gentlemen for Speaker.
This throng of goodly newszatherers
compels me to retire from the hotel. Who

'INSTANT OP MASTICATING JOY?'
One would think those reporters were en
Joy In1.' some gustatory delight in advance ot
some one's decapitation. I tbtnk tbe
office of Speaker has been of Iste unduly
swelled. It Is out of all proportion to Its
function. That function Is tbe execution
of th. Uw of tbo House, to forward its
business, respeel Iti minority, and give fair
p ay to debate and vote. I need not give
the c .list s of this protruberant condition ot
the cpeakershlp. Since Winthrop ani
Cobb' time, or even slnoe that of Grow aud
Colfax, it has been
FOSTERED BY THE PRESS

you want a man of force and
will, a Cromweltian sort fo a man .
w ho can scare a man Into his seat hy a trow n
or a rap, wno will dictate the order of rec
ognition.' In other words a born absolute
tyrair. Such Is not tbe ideal and such
shoind not be the actual organ of tbe popu
ar branch. We are approaching tne metb- i
od. of the French President of thn Cham- !
ber, w ho knocks down and sets up at pleas
tire, and the tiiitinabuiatlon of whose lit'le
bell is more potent than tbe traditional one
of seci clary Seward In tbe late war."
Mime in re observed tbat the main streuith
given to Mr. Randall came from protection
pe iple, w bo aro Interested In choking oft
ruscrssioy of the tariff question,
or uny new legislation upon the subect.
This idea Mr. Cox contended was a delu
sive one. The Influence ot a Speaker in

Will not tbo President aud tbe Secretary of

OH DISHONOR THEIR OFFICE.
The budget is no small matter in govern
ment." Al the Treasury yesterday It was
said that tbe surplus by tbe 1st of January
would amount to $132,000,000. This fact
was announced to Mr. Cox. "That is a
matterihiiil have looked into myself,"
sa d be. "Tbo surplus will be at least U'JO,
000,000. Tbe facts are, In spite of the
claims of all the protection experts, the av
erage protection duly still remains forty
per cent, ad valorem In place of the fifteen
or twenty per cent. reduction
cininied to bavo been aecomplish
edl iy tbe legislation of the last session.
The reduction Is not over 2 per cent., as
compared with 1&S1 and 18&), and It Is not
over 2 pel cent, compared wltn 1&32 and
ls&l. In place ot a tariff reduction of $40,.
(AM. 0H3, as prophesied and promised, the
reduc ion will not exceed $18,000,000. The
outside presnre of publlo opinion, In the
face ;:: i. v i icts, will certainly forco
further ooubiUeratlon of the tariff ques
tion." Of bis chances Mr. Cox said: "There Is
very little work done yet. There are per
haps fifteen Democratic members of the
House here, and you cannot elect a Speak
er with tbem. I have friends, and great
many of tbem many more than are given
to nie by anybody. As to New York of
course ther- is no question, but
I HAVE FRIENDS ELSEWHERE,

who have been giving me 'complimentary
votes.' will be su prised, that's all. I re
member one-. In Oaio, I elected a man
sheriff bv 'complimentary votes.' I urifed
a vote for him because ho deserved it. and
when the votes were collected and counted
he was elected. That Is the kind of a
"complimentary vole they are likely to
