Patrons of the Jacques are given a treat in the headline - feature of the . enow. that. is having its first perform ance .this afternoon and one that they will most thoroughly, enjoy. It is a little comedy from the pen of Will M. Cressy under the title of "The New Coachman," and played by Louis; A. Simon, Grace Gardner and company, lir Poll has always been eager to snap up sketches written by Cressy, who is next to George M. Cohan the most not ed "writer in vaudeville. The central idea of "The New Coachman" is ;the celebration of a college football vic tory, and it Is chockfull. of complica tions and funny dialogues tihat bring it right up to date. Mr Poll feels safe In predicting that "The New ; Coach man" will be found as amusing as any comedietta that has been played on this stage. The other acts on the bill are well distributed between comedy and novelty, making a bill that is in teresting and attractive in every act. A. O. Duncan, who is known as .the world's leading ventriloquist, has ; an act that teems with comedy and up to date sayings, while Rita Redmond, a very-handsome young woman, has an electric singing novelty under the name of "Diva Oata" that is most decidedly unique. Others in the bill are Tal bot and Rogers, Hume, Ross and Lew- : Is, Burrows and Travis, Kamamura ahd Brown Brothers and Lilian - .Wright. . Pries are 10, 20 and 30 cents; afternoons 10 and 20 cents, la dies 10. . . , r RICHARD "WAGNER iUes 'Anna Dunlap of r Boston will lecture on Richard Wagner to-morrow evening at. Poll's, affording a delight fully enjoyable and instructive even ing. " ' When we study the social views of such men as Richard Wagner, Wen dell Phillips, William Lloyd Garrison and " others we truly come in touch -with the aristocracy of divinity rich in all the elements that give to men bealthy and fearless spirits. They practic&My teach us that all social bar tiers must eventually yield to enlight ened reason, that "a man is a man for air that" All of this Miss Dunlap discusses in a most interesting vein, .' providing a lecture of rarely enjoyable character. Prices "are 25, 3o and 50 . cents. . -"SUPERBA. . ' ,le of the features made prominent this "season in HanSon's "Superba"- as it will be produced at Poll's on Wed- ; nesday evening-is the Milburn octette of English dancers. These young la dies received- their dancing education in" the - London theaters where Christ mas , pantomime is produced yearly and runs from six to twelve months. They" are required to bp pantoniimist, actress, singers, dancers and .their tvork is generally more in comparison t!.u any of the other artists, as they 1 not only have their own specialty to perform, :but must be adjuncts to all ...the primal artists and assist in the choruses. . Oftentimes so persistent is the . applause that they are compelled to ' respond to so many encores that . they dance twenty times a night, which is very exhausting, yet so hardy trs they that in hour or so practising in the morning with, a matinee before them is often indulged in, so eager are they to try to excel in their profession.

REED Remains of Ex-Speaker Taken to Portland, Me. KO CEREMONIES IN WASHINGTON. Dead Statesman's Ejnd. Was Peace fulWas Unconscious For Sev ' ral Hours Sketch of ..: Famous Career. WASHINGTON, Dec. " 8. The re mains of Hon. Thomas Brackett Reed, formerly speaker of the house of repre sentatives, who died early Sunday morning, have bfjen forwarded to Port land, Me.,, his former home, where the interment will take place tomorrow aft ernoon. Accompanying the body were Mrs. Reed, the widow; Miss Catherine Reed, the former speaker's daughter; Hon. Amos L. Allen, Mr. Reed's suc cessor in the house of representatives; Mr. Asher C. Hinds, Mr. Reed's par liamentary clerk while speaker, and Mr. Augustus G. Payne of New York, a lifelong friend. At Mrs.-Reed's request there were no ceremonies of any kind here, and at Portland they will be of a simple character. During the entire day there was a stream of sympathetic callers at the Arlington hotel, where the body of Mr. Reed lay aAvaitig removal to the rail road station. They, included President and Mrs. Roosevelt, members of the THOMAS B. REED. cabinet and of the senate and house of representatives and of the diplomatic corps. -Many persons in private life also called. Neither Mrs. ; Reed nor her daughter saw any of the visitors, who limply left cards. The body was inclosed in a casket, with heavy oxidized extension handles, and 011 the top was a solid silver plate, tn which had been engraved the follow ing simple inscription:" "Thomas Brack ett Reed. Oct. 18, 183D Dec. V. 1902." Mr. Reed reached Washington a week ago Sunday, having come to attend to some matters in the UBited states su preme court. He was at the capitol last Monday visiting with friends and for mer associates in congress .and wit nessed the convening of the second ses sion of the Fifty-seventh session. Ap parently he was enjoying good health, but later in the day he called on Dr. F. A. Gardner and complained of gastric distress.' ' ' "" The following day his physician' com pelled him to remain in bed while a diagnosis was made of his condition. Mr. Reed was strongly averse to stay ing in bed, but a rise in temperature made it imperative that he remain quiet. Symptoms of appendicitis- ap peared, though his condition was not considered alarming. A trained nurse remained with him throughout . Tues day night, and the patient showed signs of improvement. ; " Mrs. Reed - and daughter 'arrived Wednesday and remained with Mr. Reed since. Thursday the physicians announced that the appendical symp toms were abating, but that' kidney trouble had developed, giving a more serious aspect to the case. Dr. W. C. Goodnow was summoned from Phila delphia for consultation. An attack of nausea Fridas' night distressed the pa tient considerably because of his weak ened condition. Saturday afternoon a decided change for the worse was noted in his condi tion, and Mr. Reed became unconscious shortly after 8 o'clock. He remained in this condition until the time of his death. ., , , Thomas ; Brackett Reed , was sixty three years old. . He was born in Port land, Me., Oct. 18, 1839. His life may be briefly told in this chronological way: Graduated from Bowdoin college in 1860; joined the United States navy as acting paymaster; in 1884; member of the lower house of the Maine legis lature in 1S68 and 186J; member of the Maine senate in 1S70: attorney general of the state of Maine from 1870 to 1S72; solicitor of the city; of Portland, Me., from 1874 to 1S77; representative in congress from Maine from 1S77 to 1900, being first elected speaker in 1S88; prac ticed law in New York up to the time of his death. "Czar" Reed, as he was known in political circles, came from old New England stock. He was directly de scended from George Cleeve, an Eng lishman, who was the first white set tler of Portland. Cleeve owned the whole of Porqand then . Falmouth Neck having 1 settled there in 1G32. Cleeve had one daughter, Elizabeth, who married Michael Mitton, art Irish man. One of their daughters married Anthony .Brackett, a famous , Indian fighter. From Brackett it was that Reed got his name,, seven generations away; Anthony Brackett's great-great-reat-granddaughter married Thomas ReefX, and she was the grandmother of the last Tom Reed. - - The earjy Ufe of. Reed was passed in most humble surroundings, for his fa ther was as poor as the proverbial Ict's turkey and worked for years as a watchman in Brown's sugar house. Being one of seven children, young Reed had to make his own path in the fcvorld. His birthplace is still standing, in Portland, and just around, the.. cor' ner is the house in which Henry W. Longfellow first saw the light pf day. At the age. of nine years Reed at tended the grammar school in the place Df his ULrtU. SwP' .areaia'"hi.ttu" i)v-rj him in the high school, from which he Was graduated five years -later. H?e was then ' sixteen years bid and was sent to Bowdoin college, from which he was graduated just prior -to the begin ning, of the civil war. It has often been related that Herd wanted to be come' a minietrr, for lie was a regular attendant of the Congregational church in Portland. v , Reed was most temperate in all of his habits, lie; was a total abstainer and only smoked occasionally. He was fond of walking and always tabooed elevators, lie was a great reader and liked poetry. Actor Jolisistoiie Uead. ' PHILADELPHIA, , , Doc. 8.
