The Proper Thing is to Promptly turn the Speaker Down. By Union Associated Press. Washington, May 80.-Speaker David B. Henderson is no longer so popular a leader as he one:, was. Four good jolts in quick succession have convinced him that he is no good. He had fine(j success, as a rule, during the last congress and was doing very well last year, until the Cuban reciprocity bill came up, whirch measure, he with many other re publicans, was against. He went' so far as to write a. letter about his position as speaker of the house of representatives, insist ing that the same relief be given to Cuba as to the subsidized su gar trust. The letter was hardly mailed before Henderson him self changed about face and took with him his leaders. Just here something happened that gave him a rude awakening. Representatives whom he had previously controlled concluded to stay where they were at first. After that it became a regular thing to overturn the leaders. Henderson's haughty mien and majestic frown assumed the dic tatorial actions of a Czar. The crown does not fit him comfort ably. There is a proposition afloat to eliminate the speaker as a member of the committee on rules. New crops pure maple syrup -Morse.
