Thomasvllle, Ga., March 18.4?Thomas? vllle, for the first lime since the Presi? dent's visit, was rife! with political gossip to-day. Jokyl Island, speculation ran, was to be the scene of an import? ant political gathering, where the fu? ture course of the Republican party would be gone over and settled far from the public und the press and Shielded from Intrusion by strict enforcement of the no trespassing regulations of the rich eUib whi-.h controls; its destinies. The sudden appearance of Speaker Reed at Jekyl Island, the authoritative announcement that President McKin? ley, Vice President Hobart and Senator Banna, would make their trip there on Monday, and the visit of Judge Day, formerly Secretary of State, to Thom? asvllle, though absolutely mere coin? cidence, according to those gentlemen named, who are here, revived at once recollections of the important part in national history boril of the ThOluas vlllo conference four v. ars ago, FORMER TIMES RECALLED. The conferences new. Bald the gossip were to bo transferred to Jokyl Island, the scene chosen was suggestive of the times when kings met on craft in mid? stream to settle the destinies of em? pires. It is fair to say at the outset that Senator Hanno, Vice President Hobart and President McKinley himself say positively that there ate no politics whatever in their present visit South, ami thill it is undertaken solely for rest ami recuperation, As to speaker Reed'S presence at Jekyl, both Senator Banna and Vice President Hobart said that they did not know the Speaker was [there until they saw the papers. The UUtar before ..-rival of the papers. ? was so positive the Speaker was not to i lie at Jekyl island. that) when a news? paper man told him Mr. Reed was to he there, lie promptly bet him a suit of clothes that Speaker Reed was not at Jekyl, and would not be at Jekyl Is , land. THE PRESIDENT SURPRISED. ' The news, it was evident, was also surprising to others In the President's party, who ordinarily would have heard of It had there been any anticipatory comment about the house on the sub? ject. As regards Judge Day, he is not going to Jekyl, and probably will be out of Thomasvllle on the way home by the time the President returns. There Is nevertheless a possibility that the Jekyl island trip, though not so intended, perhaps, by its principals, may have an important political bear? ing. It may prove to he the reconcil? iation ground of President McKinley and Speaker Reed. That their rela? tions are strained and development of party policy in legislation hindered thereby, is a matter of common report. Judge Moore. whose guest Speaker Iteed is. and Cornelius N, Bliss, who asked President McKinley and party to visit him, are common friends of all patties personally and politically, and through them harmonious fellowship in iy attain prevail between tile two forem st Republicans'. P( 'L1TICAL SIGNIFICANCE. If the Joky! island trip has any po lltlcal outcome it will be this. Should this consummation come it is quite likely that neither the Speaker nor the President would h tve been privy to itsi , Inception, for knowledge by them of sueii an Ulterior hope by their hosts would have prevented its accomplish? ment. This view- is entirely consistent with the statements of the principal persons who will be there, for they declare absolutely politics cut no figure in the trip, and their details were In no sens.- technl il, hut broad and com? prehensive.
