Mills Au tie! paled Defeat.
Mr. Mills took his defeat like a proverbial
Texas. He also had been waiting anxiously
in a room near by to learn how the balloting
wan going. Right after the mn he«eem*d
to fed that something was going to happen
and that the deciaire moment had arrived.
It ia stated that to Stahlneoker, of New
York, is due the beginning of the end. He
liad voll« I all along for Mills and bolted to
like the whisper in the mountains, his
Tote started the avalanche, which came on
the thirtieth Imllot. It stam|ieded McMU
Im's men, atid Springer's followed suit.
Htuhliieckec's dueertion was the first hail
news that came to Mills.
"Springer votes for Crisp," cried ont a
messenger, rushing into the nom. Mills,
who had 1 i«ih« 1 forward to catch h» mi»
snge, recoiled. Another ls>y came panting
In. For the tlrst time during this remarka
ble content Us: Texan then showed a sign of
"Well," lie said, raising his hand as though
to ward a Wow, "what is itf
lie Upon thi« New«.
The boy look one look at the pain, anxious
fisc of Mills, and, although trembling with
excitement, he checkt«! the yell upon his
lips, and turning his head suidiuulow voter,
"It's Crisp; he's elected." Mills stood as
though petri(ted. Slowly his head, with
little jerks, taint forward and his hands
nervously clasts«) before him. It was us if
he had bowed to tin* inevitable.
The sight of M ills in the In Kir of his de
feat affected every one in the room. There
was not a tremor in the stalwart frame ; he
stood still, a statue to grief. Colonel Mor
rison stepped forward and gently laid his
hand on his friend's shoulder,
touch Mills drew himself up, and taking
Morrison's hand said; "It's all right. This
other man has won."
Then with hew! erect, with astride little
morn swinging than usual he hastened into
the hoiisu. and walking up to Crisp grasjied
him oordially by the hand and congratulated
him morn warmly prrliaiis than any one
else on the victory he had won.
Tl,« New Speaker's Career.
diaries Frederick t'riap was born in Hhcf
flold, England, where his parents bad gone
on a visit, Jan. at, law His pi rents re
turned within a year, and ho was reared in
Georgia, receiving a common school educa
tion in Havnnnah and Macon At the htvuk
ing out of the war he was only sixteen, but
he enlisted in the Confederate service in
May, istll, becoming lieutenant of IVirapony
K, Tenth Virginia infantry, and serving
until May 12, PHI, when he was taken aa a
prisoner of war and sent to Fort Delaware.
He was released at the close of the war and
returned to Etlavflla,(la., where his parents
then maided. Things look)«! a little Wue
for the young Confederate at that period,
but he did not give up ls<CHUse the Confed
eracy was dead.
He read law in Americus and was admit
ted to the bar in ItSkl. In 1873 he was ap
pointed solicitor general of the southwestern
circuit, and was reappointed in 1873 for the
full term of four years, and removed to
Americas, where he has since resided. At
the expiration of his term in 1*77 he wae ap
pointed judge of t he superior court, elect«!
the following year by the legislature to the
same offloe and re-elected in 1880 for a full
tenu of four years, resigning in 1883 to ac
cept a seat in the Forty-eighth congress llo
lias been continuously re-elected »luce, and
is the candidate of the wing of the Demo
cratic parly that opposes Mills on the ground
that his plan of tariff reduction ia tea radical.
The new speaker descemls from a family
