WAS HE ALONE?
KENNEDY SAID TO HAVE ACTED
ON HIS OWN ACCOUNT.
HIS QUAY SPEECH AND ITS OBJECT.
Political Thunder to Further His
REIfBUCAN PARTISANSHIP GONE MAD.
Petitions to InSnente Legislation Doming
In by the BushelPennsylvanians
in the Dark Ooalp.
Has Kennedy flunkcel f That Is tbo
question oftcnest asked at the Capitol
this morning. It begins to look that
way, Inasmuch as his speech has not
yet apptareil In Iho llttonl.
The Impression grows that Mr. Ken
nedy acted sololy on his own account
in making his onslaught on tho Senate
and on Senator Quay. Mr. Konnedy
was one of the shouting advocates of
Ibc Porcc bill. When it became ap
parent that that bill coutd not
pass the Senate at this session
Mr. Kennedy became very mad and,
metaphorically speaking, frothed at tbo
mouth. He got up n papor pledging Its
signets to oppose an adjournment of
Congress nnd to prevent tbo passage of
tho Tailft bill until the Senate had had
a vote on the Force bill. To this paper
he secured some fifty signatures. None
of the Ilcpubllcan lenders signed It
ouly obscurities like Kennedy.
Aflcr he had secured those fifty
ticners be showed tho document to
Senator Aldrlcb, who has charge of the
TnritT bill. Mr. Aldrlcb glanced over
It. snd then told Kennedy that If lie and
the ilgncrs carried out the plan outlined
tbi tc wouldn't be as many Itepubllcans
In Die House as there were signers to
Turn Quay took a band, and (lie
l'orcc bill went over until next session.
Kennedy, It Is believed, saw a chance
to exploit himself and gain some of the
notoriety he craves. Hence his speech.
Ho has been gerrymandered out ot
Cougrcss. His old district was stroncly
Republican. So when the Democrats
made their reapportionment last winter
they look the county Kennedy lives In
and attached it to a Democratic dis
trict. This was done solely to get rid of
Kennedy. His old district, minus his
county, Is still Ilcpubllcan. A number
of leaders of his parly wore tlrod of
blm, and tbe transfer of'hls county was
done at their Instance.
As be can't come to Congress again,
he wants to be Governor. He wants
to be Governor, anyhow. Like lien
Iluller. he Is bound to be Governor If
possible. He thinks this speech will
help him. as the Ohio Republicans ap
pear to like that sort of thing. They
sucm to be fond of foolish and fiery
mouthlngs, and Kennedy Is trylnic to fill
the bill He will succeed, especially la
tbe foolish part of It.
Resolutions and petitions designed to
Influence legislation continue to Sow
In on Congress. Thus this morning Mr.
Sherman preseuted to the Senate the
resolution, adopted by the Ohio liar
(lawyers, not Mlooe keepers) Associa
tion at Put in-Iiay last July, favoring
the establishment of an I ate rated late
Mr. Paddock at the awe time pre
sented nlae petitions, aggregating 711
signers, all citizens of St. LmiIs, asking
that the Paddock hill to prohibit the
adulteration of foods and drugs may
Urome a law. The Indorsements on
the petitions show a certain confusion
on the ix rt of the person who penned
tbein. 1 bus one refers to the "adultera
tion of diet and drugs." Another to
the "adulteration of diet" only. Yet
another wants "adulteration of diet and
oiber things prohibited effectively."
Quite a wholesale prohibition, that.
1 H another wants the "wholesale adul
u ration of human diet prohibited."
Retail adulteration he would tolerate
apparently. Most of the petitions want
this adulteration of diet prohibited, aisa
ply, but one of them wants it "effec
tively prohibited." Another wants it
"prohibited effectively," while yet
another is wore stringent and wants the
prohibition to be "forever and effec
tively." Mr. Paddock also presented the peti
tion of seventy eitiaeas of Chase
Cuuulv. Kebtnaka. oravinn for an ao
pfoprtaitoa in aid of iirigatiua- It
would seem as taousn ueeiiioas for irri

who have made themselves useful lo
their constituencies renominated. Gov.
crnor Gear of Iowa Is one of the men I
refer to. He has been In Congress two
terms, and yet he Is one of the most In
dustrious workers on tbe floor of the
House There are other members who
arc seeing their first terms who have
made btlfilant records. On tbe Demo
cratic side there is young Turner of
New York and Colonel Dills of Ken
tucky, two of the best workers I ever
saw. On the Republican side there are
several very likely 'youngsters.' Mr.
Klljah A. Morse of Massachusetts prob
ably carries of the palm. He has put
In more solid licks during this term
for the Second Massachusetts district
than anyone the old Bay State has sent
here In a great number of years. Ono
of bis biggest successes, and for which
he deserves great credit, was In having
the duty on granite Increased from 'JO
to DO per cent. This had the effect of
brlngins about an Increase In the wages
of the granite workers In Mr Morse's
dlitilct. He also got a big slice of the
twenty Ave million River and Harlwr
appropilatlon for his district, besides
balng life saving stations establlstied
at some of the most dangerous places
along the Massachusetts coast. If we
bad more Morses and Gearses and Tur
in rs and Rlllses In the popular branch
of Congress tbe country would he the
ealncr. The House of Representatives
Is noplace for a lacy man, ami all such
should be retired."
HEED'S PRESIDENTIAL REE.
IT IS NOW avio TO HK ncztiKn IN C IX
PuiLAPBU'HrA, Pa , Sept. 6 The
Washington correspondent of the
llteonl says that It Is now alleged, with
a good deal of circumstantiality, that
the Republican Congressional Campaign
Committee's animating purpose Is the
elevation of Speaker Reed to the Presi
denev, Instead of simply to aid the
eleclk'u of Republican members ot tbe
next Houh-. The men who control tbe
machine Congreksmen lielden of New
York, Carter of Montana, and ex As
sistant Postmaster General Clarkaon of
Iowa are clever politicians. Mr.
Clarkaon for years past has been one of
Mr. Maine's most loysl and Intelligent
tuppotters. Rut Mr. Clarkaon is more
progressive thau the simple granger
voter of Iowa. He feels that Mr.
IMatne has outlived bis usefulness, so
far as tbe Presidency is concerned.
Hence Clarksoa Is for Reed. Tbe
cordial relation which exist between
Mr. lielden and Mr. Reed are well
known. These practical politicians have sent
into West Virginia and North Carolina
alone 20,000 copies of a newspaper sup
plewent containing foutteen columns of
matter selected from leading Republican
journals commenting favorably upon
Mr. Reed's administration as Speaker of
the House, and this programme will be
followed so far as the other Males are
Hill it would be an odd situation if
Blaine's professed friendship for lieed
shoe Id turn out to be jealousy of him
instead. The additional workman at the
