Washington Crrr, iUrch 10. Repre
sontative Crain. of Texas, is ;t personal fa
rorito with Reed. The relations between
the two are so friendly and intimate that
Crain had no hesitation in stepping up to
the ex-spcaker after the final-ad jourament
Oi the house last Wednesday and inquir
ing what apology he had to make for his
"high-handed treatment of the hotise."
Reed paused, smiled, searched the ceiling
a few seconds for an answer and then
atd: "My dear boy, you puzzle me. Your
question makes me feel pretty much as
Lord Clive, according to his own expres
sion, might have felt when he was under
examination by a committee of the Brit
ish parliament on a charge of having acted
in too high-handed a manner in India.
Cave Clive Food for Thought.
"You remember that as commander of
the British forces in India Lord Clive
was accused of accepting for his own ben
efit presents from the native princes
whom be bad subdued, and of being un
kind in his treatment of some of those
native princes. Clive thought of the con
dition in which he found British inter
ests in India, and the condition in which
he le t them. lie recalled the horrors
at the Black Hole of Calcutta, and the
art that there was not a British force
within 15,000 miles to avenge thatatroc-,
My- Moreover, he remembered that the
British had been deprived of nearly all
the foothold they had ever had in India
and were on the point of being driven bag
and baggage into the Indian ocean when
he organized, almost created, a small
force with which he turned the tide on
the natives, and established the British
empire in India.
Reed's Application of the Story.
Then he remembered how complete his
victories were, what vast opportunities he
had for revenge, how thoroughly he had
the barbarians in his power, and how lit
tle mercy the barbarians deserved. When
he thought of the opportunities he had,
and of how little advantage he took of
them, of the temptations that beset him,
and of how little he yielded, his indigna
tion at the paltry charges presented
against him boiled over, and he could not
iielp exclaiming: '.My God, gentlemen, I
am amazed at my own moderation.' And
you will not forget," Reed added sugges
tively, "that the house of commons, as a
result of that investigation, passed unani
mously a resolution declaring that Lord
Clive had rendered great and meritorious
services to England and to India."
The Democratic Programme.
Representative Benton McMillan was
one of the leaders, if not the leader, of the
minority in the last congress. He gained
a reputation as a master of repartee, and
is the only Democrat who could hold
Reed level at parliamentary fencing. It
was McMillan who first applied the term
"czar" to Reed. Speaking of the pro
gramme before the Democrats in the next
house, McMillan says: '"It is quite sure
that the rules practiced by Mr. Reed w ill
not bo enforced upon the minority in the
next house. I know it is commonly as-'
serted that the Democrats should compel
the Republicans to take their own medi
cine, but Democrats can not afford to be
undemocratic. There will not be enough
Republicans in the next house to obstruct
legislation, even if they choose to."
A CUBAN FEATURE FOR THE FAIR.
Reproduction of the Voyages of Colum
bus by a Spanish Fleet.
Washington Citt. March 10. The di

To Be Heard by the Supreme Court on
the Fourth Monday in April.
Washington- Citt, March 10 In the
supreme court yesterday Solicitor General
Taft called attention to the motions made
last Monday to advance hearings in three

the McKinley tariff act. He said the gov
ernment had examined the cases and it
was willing to advance two of them (those
of R. M. Boyd and Charles Sternback
against Erhardt, collector of the port cf
New York), but in the other (of Marshall
Field vs. Clarke, collector at Chicago) the
government desired to file a statement in

was concerned. The court decided to hear
the cases on the fourth Monday in ApriL

him under such circumstances. " Among

A war Further Facts in the Mystery.
Chicago, March 10. Mrs. Tillie Mowry.
who vras kidnaped last Saturday, is a
guest of the sheriff of Columbia county,
Wisconsin, at Portage. The Chicago po
are not taking any active interest in the
case, a though there is evidence, verbal
and wiitten, to show that there was a con
spiracy to. forcibly seize and carry the
woman from this state into Wisconsin.
The motive has not yet certainly np
peard, but that her presence in the Badger
state was earnestly desired by certain par
ties nr pears from the facts and corre
spondeice. Yesterday morning a carte
spondent visited Mrs. Mowry at the lome
of the sheriff in Portage.
Story of the Kidnaping.
Shet)ld the following story of her ab
duction: "I left my home at 110 West
Polk street early on Saturday morning to
go to v ork. On Canal street near Polk
two men stopped me. One of them was
dressed in ordinary clothes, but the other
wore a iolice uniform. The man in uni
form produced a paper, which he said was
a warrant for my arrest on a charge of
forgery, and told me that I would ha-e to
aecompiiny him. I attempted to resist
hi in. but he said if I did not come with
h:;n in ;. c.irii;ige which was waiting near
by lie vould call a patrol waou. I
told hitn that he had made a mistake, but
that sooner tan be put in a patrol' wagon
I would go with him.
Smuggles Out Two Telegrams.
"When we were in the carriage the man
exchanged the uniform coat, for a citizen's
coat, lie told me I was to be taken to a
small toivn outside the city, where I would
bs tried. We were driven to a station on
the Wisconsin Central road, whew the
man in citizen's clothes left us after put
ting me on a train. When we reached
Rugby Junction we stopped at a hotel,
where I managed to smuggle out tele
grams, one to my mother and oue to the
officials in Portage, where we went from
Rugby. The man accompanying me aid
he was going to take me to l'ackwaukee
to my husband, and that he would drive
over to l'ortag.'.
Ueocueil by the Officers.
"When he left ma to liud a team .it Port
ago two o!!i(-rv crime to the depot and
took me to jail. My captor did not re
turn aftir he saw that the officers had
come to my protection, and they have net
f-een him since. I believe the man who
wore the police uniform is William Se
cord, a brother of my husband, although
he told n;e ha was Charles WiUon, of t3
Twenty-second street, Chicago. The other
maul do not know." Mrs." Mowry said
that she was trapped into marrying Se
cord last May while she was at Packwau
kee doing detective work on the Ranker
Meade murder case.
They Wauted John llonfleld.
Detective John llonfield says that lat
fall a detective agency in Wisconsin at
tempted ro employ him to secure the per
son of Mrs. Mowry and take her to Wis
consin oa the pretence that she knew
someth in. j; about, the murder of Banker
Meade. There was considerable corre
spondent, in which Secord took part, but
Mr. Bonrield declined to have anything
to do wit h the case, except to induce
her to go to Wisconsin voluntarily. Tins
did not suit the plotters, and the matter
was drooled. On March fe two men, one
cf whom :s believed to have been Secord,
tried to induce the Veteran Police Tatrol
agency to undertake the job of landing
'i il.ie Mowry in Wisconsin, but iu this
case they failed again. Other similar ef
forts have bten made.
Wht Do They Want or Her?
The question most discussed is what do
these people w int of Mrs. Mowry? S.ie mar
ried Secord, so it is said, having been
tricked in: o doing so. When she discovered
the trick the refused to live longer with
Secord. and came to Chicago. Since then
Secord has 1 --n persistent in his efforts to
obtain possession of her. A story was
current to t e effect that her first hus
band, Mowry, was an Englishman whose
family had disowned him, and that
Secord was Mowry's valet. When Mowry 's
parents died he learned that thfy
had releut-d and left him a large fortune.
He had never told his wife who he was.
and no one except Secord knew, and the
widow could not get her husband's inher
itance except with Secord's assistance.
The story was that Secord proposed to be
paid for his testimony, and that is why
he tricked Mrs. Mowry into marrying
him, and has sine been so jersistent in
attempts t get her to live with him. This
story is nor confirmed.
The Latest Explanation.
It is Btir.ea also that Calvin Mowry,
Tillie's first husband, was a native of
Ohio. His parents are natives of Penn
sylvania, a id are now living in Fairbury,
Ills. Mowry had no money and no ex
pectations. Sykes says that his daughter
knows nothing whatever about the Meade
murder, th, it she has no fortune iu pros
pect and that Secord's attempt to kidnap
her was dun entirely to motives of revenge
aud to cause ner trouble.
Fate of Two Runaway Boys.

aud Thomas Ferguson, aged respectively
17 and 1 ran away from their homes in

They Are Wroth at Johnson.
Cincinnati, March 10. It was nearly
midnight Monday when the Association
managers now in the city learned that
Johnson had sold out. The news created
consternation, as all their plans were
based on his fidelity, and he was deuonnced
in bitterest terms. He had led them to
the last moment to believe that he was
true, and tolay they were to complete ar
rangements for the season. Johnson's
treachery has killed the Association's
hopes in this city.
