RFTIREMEHT OF REED,
Latest Subject of Interest for the
Men Who Speculate on
HE WILL DIVOTE HIMSELF TO LAW,
And Thereby Increase Bis Income to
Many Times His Salary as Speaker
() Resworn for Ills Change Said To Be
That He Cannot Una Up with the White
House on Certain Policies Candidates
Chicago. .April 21. The currently re
ported intention of Thomas Brackett
Heed, ex-speaker of the national house,
to retire from coiiRrevs has brought for
ward a number of western men for the
speakership. In this state there is
Representative Hopkins, who seems to
have the lead here. Iowa has two can
didates W .P. Hepburn and General
Henderson. It is announced at New
York that Retd will become a member
of the legal firm of Simpson. Thatcher
Si Barnum. A New York telegram says:
"The speaker is said to rfave been as
sured of an income of at least $50,000 a
year, an emolument equal to that of
the president of the United States, from
insurance companies alone. He will
continue to act as referee for the sever
al insurance corporations for which he
has been recently acting, and friends
say that hia income may yet amount to
$100,000 annually. The speaker has not
yet determined whether he will lease a
bouse In this city at first or not."
Had Long Considered the Slep.
A telegram from St. Louis quotes the
Washington correspondent of TheGlobe-
Ieniocrat as follows: "Until last
Wednesday those who considered them
selves closest to Mr. Keed did not be
lieve he would accept a business prop
osition and retire from public life. They
knew that Mr. Heed had considered
and declined such propositions before.
They had heard him again and again
talk of retirement. In fact, there has
hardly been a month the past three
years that Mr. I Seed did not In confiden
tial conversation discuss the advisabil
ity of this step. Two years ago and
four years ago members of his family :
added their influence. And yet Mr. Reed
kept on coming to congress in spite of
tempting offers. In spite of his own ap
Ont or Linn with the White House.
"So when this latest guarantee of a
sum ten times the congressional salary
was put before him at the expiration of
the last session his friends thought the
result would lie as it had been. The
unexpected has happened. Now that
Mr. Reed has decided to retire, it is
not uiincuu to account ior nis action,
To all of the conditions which favored
withdrawal before there is added now a
new element. Mr. Reed is not strictly
in harmony with the administration
and the party. He does not favor cer
tain policies upon which the Republic
ans will go before the "country next
year. The speakership was conceded to
him. There would have been no orpo
rition. COl'LDNT UK SPEAKEH AND HEED.
So It Seems He Concluded To Be Reed
Two Satisfied Kleinents.
"But if he had gone on he would
have had to give his consent and sup
port to legislation which he did not en
tirely approve. Mr. Reed is too good a
Republican to antagonize as speaker
the course of the party. He Is too out
spoktn to refrain from expression of his
sentiments. He could hardly have b?tn
speaker and have been himsslf. There
would have been embarrassment. Soon
after the adjournment of congress The
tJInlie-Democrat tailed attention to the
difficulties of the situation growing out
of Mr. Red's attitude on pressing is
sues. The editorial warning was copied
in Washington and throughout theeast.
It was the subject of much comment
and discussion among public rrft-n.
"The response was prompt and strong
that the speaker of the new house must
be In thorough and hearty accord with
his party. Mr. Reed. It Is known, felt
these difficulties as strongly as any one.
The meeting on Jekyl island followed.
Prompt denials were made generally
that any significance was to be at
tached to the presence of so many
eminent Republicans. Including Mr.
Reed, on the island. But it is a fact
that immediately after the return of
the resident and his party and of Mr.
Reed from the south the possibility of
the latter's retirement becam? a subject
of much ta'.k.
"Two elements in the Rpub!ican par
ty are expressing satisfaction over Mr.
Reed's announced retirement. The first
Is the combination of sincere wvil-wlsh-
ers for Republican success in the future.
They discern that In Reed's absence
from the house harmony and united ac
tion' are assured. The second is the
small number of disaffected calculating
upon a revulsion of the public senti
ment that Is flowing steadily and pow
erful'- for McKlr.ley'srencmination and
election. It is argued by the latter that
Mr. Reed, instead of disappearing from
public life by his connection with a pri
vate interest may be forced into great
"It Is pointed out by them that he will
become a resident of New York and be
able to command that powerfunl dele
gation in a national convention. With
his new backing. Reed can. if still
ambitious, cemmand tremendous finan
cial support on his gold record."

for him to delist that he did not shoot.
The family were all driven from the

dersen ran into the house to assist and
was promptly met with the revolverand
he retreated. In the meantime Officer

The Truthful Marksman.
An extraordinary shooting adventure
is recorded by A. L. Butler of the State
museum, Selangor, Malaya. One day
in last July a Malay woodcutter went
out into the jungle to cut fuel, taking
with him an old single barreled, muz
zle loading grin loaded with the rather
unscientific charge cf a bullet and four
buckshot. Moving quietly through the
jungle, he suddenly came npon a tiger
feeding on the carcass of a sambhur.
and with touching confidence in his ;

The fixer rolled over, and when the
Malay cautiously approached he found
not one dead tiger, but two. the second
having been hidden from the sports
man, though only a few feet distant
from the animal he fired at
Mr. Butler, who made a post mortem
examination of the tigers after they
had been skinned, found that in each
case a single buckshot bad gone to the
heart. One had also an insignificant
wound on the head from another pellet
"For a really appalling fluke.' as Mr.
Butler says, this achievement of the
Malay woodcutter will be hard to beat.
It certainly is not a performance any
eane white man will try to parallel,
much less to eclipse.

PUNISHING AN EDITOR.
The Curious Method Adopted
South American Country.
Cnrions methods of punishing indis

Mr. Ccwford describes the interesting
experience of an editor who tad been

the rnling powers by tho freedom of hia
The editor was arrested and confined
in a narrow passage between the cages

though the achievement would be both
exciting and dangerons.
Our editorial friend happened to be
stout, and therefore was the more easily
reached by the occupants of the cages.
As if to add insult to injury, he was
given a chair on which to sit and at
the same time was furnished with a
copy of his own paper, the issue which
had brought him into trouble, in order
that he might meditate upon its con

he was sure to be met by the ngly claws
of the second jaguar. It was a case of
Scylla and Charybdis.
Every few minutes the jaguars be
came wildly excited and clawed fiercely
at the shrinking editor, who. do his
best, could- not escape those rending

shreds, but except for a few scratches
he was not really injured.
