Thomas II. Ueed, the Maine states
man who was given the title of "czar"
when he was speaker of the national
house of representatives, was born Oct.
IS. 1S30, in Portland. Me. For almost
forty years he was prominent in the
affairs of his state or the nation. lie
began public life as a paymaster in

served his state in the legislature and

In s:", and was a prominent candi
date for president of the United States
It was as speaker of the Fifty-first
congress, which body assembled Dec.
2, ISO. that Heed made his greatest
reputation and performed his most im
portant work. During all the years
that he had been in congress he had
observed the growing disposition of the
minority to defeat those constitutional
provisions by which the majority is to
rule in the land. He found that a habit
had grown up in congress by which
members of ihe minority party by sit
ting silent in their seats and refusing
to vote could block legislation. He
did not agrea with such a system and
set himself about to change it.
His study of this question led him
tobelievelhat on constitutional-grounds
and broad parliamentary law it was
not only the right but the duty of the
speaker to determine whether there
was or there was not really a quorum
present in considering a measure, even
though the call of the roll failed to
show a quorum answering to the de
mand for votes upon the measure in
APPLICATION OF THE PRINCIPLE
How He Got the Title of "Czar." and How
He Wore the Same.
The scene in the house of representa
tives when Heed announced this prin
ciple of parliamentary law, that a
law, that a member physically pres
ent cannot be constructively absent,
will never be forgotten by those who
witnessed it. He had thoroughly di
gested the question, which he was
about to announce as his determina
tion, and was entirely calm and ju
dicial in his attitude. Few, if any.
of the members knew his intention, and
when, on Jan. 30, 1890. afterdays of
filibustering, in which the Democrats
had refused 'to make a quorum by
voting, he directed the clerk to record
the names of those present and refus
ing to vote a storm of "Tyrant," "Us
urp" and "Czar" arose from the Demo
cratic side, while Hepublicans ap
plauded. In the midst of it all Ueed
stood calm, self-poised, confident. Not
only did his party sustain him, but
the highest tribunal of" the land, the
supreme court, supported him with a
judicial decision, and finally the very
men who were denouncing him for
that action themselves, two congresses
later, adopted those priuciples.
Heed entered congress a poor man.

which opportunities presented, them

OWNERSHIP OF PATOS
Likely to Come Up in the Present
Dispute Between Vene
zuela and Britain.
MIT OF AN ISLAND IN DISPUTE
Castro Says It Belongs to film; John
Bull Says No Claims Sum
marized. Venezuela. Dec. 8. In Venezuela's
"yellow book" for i:X)l, a copy of
which hs b?cn received in Washing
ton recently from theforelgn office at
Caracas, are the exchanges between
the London and Caracas governments
last year in regard to the ownership
of Patos island, which has been in dis
pute between the two countries for
many years. Significance attaches to
this correspondence in view of the ap
proaching crisis between Venezuela
and Great 1'ritain, as it is not im
probable that in the settlement of the
claims of British and German citi
zens against Venezuela the Patos dis
,puto will also be involved.
How the Question IV as Reopened.
Heopening of the I'atos question was
caused by the action of the Venezue
lan gunboat "Augusto" in January,
1001, capturing certain Hritish sub
jects on the island. When the Caracas
authorities were called to account b.v
the London foreign office the former
replied by renewing their long stand
ing claim to Patos. and a diplomatic
controversy extending throughout the
year was the result.
llase of the Venezuelan Claim.
Venezuela basis her claims to the
island on its proximity to the coast of
Guiaria, from which it is distant only
three miles, declaring that it is a tenet
of international law that country com
mands waters within a marine league
of its coast; that the international hrw
institute has defined the territorial sea
as six miles. . whereas the island of
Patos is more than ten miles from
Trinidad, the nearest P.ritlsh posses
sion. Appeals to the Treaty of 1845.
Further, that the treaty of March.
1815. "explicitly confirms the title of
Venezuela over all the islands near her
coast which were under tfie dominion
of Spain in the initiative period of
Venezuelan independence." In support
of this contention the Venezuelan au
thorities produce a letter from the roy
al Spanish minister for state in 1X7:..
in which he denies that royal sanction
ever was given to the concession al
leged to have been made to the
Ayuntanniiemo of Trinidad b.v the gov
ernor of Patos. lluevos and Monos.
BRITAIN'S CLAIM SUMMARIZED
Two Kinds of Maps tr the Same Man
Talk of Arbitrators.
Great Britain through her charge
d'affaires at Caracas ami later through ,'
her minister, advanced the contention t
tliht when she compiennl the island of
Trinidad in .1707 sovereignty over Pa
tos also was obtained and so recog
nized by the Madrid government; that
I'atos has remained in the peaceful !
possession of Great Britain for more
than a century, during seventy years
of which time Venezuela advanced no
counter claim, and that the oflicial map
of Codazzi colors the island of Patos
the same as Trinidad, indicating' that
both belong to the same country.
To this last contention Venezuela re
plied by stating that the map of Codaz
zi was so old as to make it impos
sible to distinguish the various -oI-ors
and produced other maps by the
same author, which places Patos as
belonging to Venezuela. Being unable
to agree on even the miner oints of
the controversy the British minister,
near the close of last year, Informed
the Venezuelan foreign office that he
would make no further representations
in the matter, as there was nothing to
be gained in continuing the corre
spondence. It is understood that President Cas
tro will ask that the question be set
tled by arbitration, a proposition to
which the British government will
hardly accede, in view of its conten
tion that the ownership of Patos is
so clearly. British as not to furnish a
suitable subject for arbitration.
Ultimatum to Venezuela
London, . Dec. s. Premier Balfour
announced in the house of commons
today that an ultimatum had been
sent to Venezuela and that in the
event, of a satisfactory reply not be
ing received the British and German
governments would take measures to
enforce their claims against that
enojiress quite as por in money ars
he entered it. 1 Miring ids long service,
conspicuous :s it whs.' in the constant
battle engendering angry passions and
desires for revenge, not a breath of
scandal, not a suspicion touched his
garments. "Essentially honest." is the
testimony of a political opponent who
sat with him twelve years in the house.
There was l.o hyiocrisy in the man,
nor had he been charged with shift
iugs, double-dealings or bad faith, fre
quent charges in the political world.

in frace, tail of stature and heavy in

round, with a towering forehead, ris

rTi. WILLIAM WILLIAMS KEEN.
Dr. Keen has addressed a letter setting

inferring that probably the front part
of his brain was injured at the site of
