THE EEED MEN BETTING HE WILL "WIN.
An appeal to wool men all over the coun
try has been issued, asking them to exert
their influence against Mr. Heed's selection
as Speaker of the Eonse of Representatives.
The reason for this move is that Mr. Heed is
a New Englander, and Eastern men are al
leged to be in faror of tree wool. The latest
argument advanced by the Heed following
in "Washington is the pocketbook. They want
to bet that Reed is the coming man. They
also claim that no combination against him
ISrECIAL TELZGRAM TO TBS DISFATCH.
Philadelphia, November 23. Edward
A. Greene, of the firm of Edward A. Greene
& Co., wool commission merchants of Phila
delphia and Boston, is sending the following
appeal to wool men all over the country:
Afi organized effort will be made by New
England for free wool, and it is very important
that the Speaker of the House of Representa
tives shall be from the West. I suggest that
you write a letter to your member (obtaining
as many signatures as possible to it) requesting
him to vote for whoever is the most certain to
defeat the New Engird candidate.
THEY PEAK A DAKK HOUSE.
"When asked his reasons to-day ior send
ing this circular, Mr. Greene said: "We
have no personal ojections to Mr. Heed, who
has declared himself in favor of tariff on
wool, but, confident that he cannot be
elected, fear adarkhorse from Massachusetts,
Rhodelsland, or Connecticut might be settled
on as a compromise, and these States are
strongly in favor of free wool; in Jnct.should
Mr. Reed be elected, we are not sure his
constituents would not persuade him to for
ward their views. Prom the answers I have
received so far, it appears wool men prefer
Mr. McKinley, but would be satisfied with
Mr. Cannon or any other "Western man for
ONE OF THEIB ABGtJjrENTS.
A member of the firm of Justice, Bateman
& Co. said: "Should wool be admitted free
of duty it wonld be almost entirely im
ported, and manufacturers able to buy as
cheap as 'we could would simply dispense
with us altogether. This is why we are op
posed to the election of a New
England candidate as Speaker. East
ern manufacturers desire free wool.
"We favor specific duties. Class 1, or cloth
ing wool, pays 10 cents per pound duty
when the cost is SO cents per pound or
under, and 12 cents per pound when it costs
over SO cents a pound at the point of ship
ment Class 3, or carpet wool, pays 2Jl
cents per pound when it costs 12 cents or
under at point of shipment, and 5 cents per
pound when the cost is over 12 cents a
A GRIEVANCE OK TWO.
"The grievance of native wool growers is
that foreign growers, by crossing the Don
skoi, South American, Dordova and Smyrna
breeds with the Merino sheep, have brought
such an improvement in the carpet grade,
or class 5, which only pays from 2 to 5
cents duty per pound, that it is now used
for clothing, and should pay 10 cents per
pound. The remedy is to increase the duty on
some of the wool imported underclass three,
so as to enable the home grower to compete
with foreign wool of the same grade, and we
desire a Speaker who will favor a measure
to that effect."
Out of 79 answers received by the Econo
mist'from wool men, 60 are for free wool and
19 only for duty ad -valorem. Of these 8 are
from Philadelphians and 3 of them favor
free raw material, while many others, who
are Republicans and have been identified
with the protection crusade, are now known
to secretly favor free wool.
HOrrS TO SEE EEED ELECTED.
A large carpet manufacturer, a strong
Republican, who took an active part in the
last campaign, said when shown Mr.
Greene's circular: "The movement is
absurd, and I hope to see Mr. Reed
elected The dealers want to increase
the duty on carpet wool, when it
really should come in free, as it cannot be
grown here to compete with the European
market. If the tariff on the raw material
was increased sufficiently to permit of com
petition, it would close every one of our
mills, as the manufactured goods could
be imported a great deal cheaper then we
could make them here. I understand per
fectly, however, that dealers should be
anxious that wool should not come in free,
as it would do away with them altogether,
but the industry would be better off without
those middle men."

"Washington, November 23. One week
from to-day the caucus of the Republican
members of the House of Representatives
will meet for the election of a Speaker and
officers of the House. The coming week
will, therefore, be a busy one with
the candidates- and their friends, and all
sortsof stories are afloat as to some of the
phases' of that business, such as combina

date, and little savory bits of history which
will put this or that one at a disadvantage.
Notwithstanding all these stories, it may
safely be said that there will be no serious
combination, because "none is possible.
There is no bitter personal or factional par

are not to be used by candidates to form
combinations, like delegates to a ward or

Burrows, Cannon and Henderson are each

'The Sale of Liquor in Kansas In the Orlctnal
Topeka. Kan., November 23. Attorney
General Kelfogg has filed in the Supreme
Court his brief in the case of the State vs.
F. W. Fulker. It raises a new question re
garding the prohibitory law whether the
shipment of intoxicating liquors from an
other State into Kansas, and the sale of
these liquors in the original packages, is a
violation of the law. This is the first time
the question has been raised.
Fulker was agent of the Pacific Express
Company at Oketo, Kan., and acting in that
capacity, received at different times express

ISrECIAL TELEOBAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
Lyons, N. X., November 23. A case
which has attracted unusual attention in
"Wayne and Monroe counties-was concluded
in the "Wayne Circuit Court to-day. It was
the case of Albert G. Graham, of Clyde,
against George D. Richardson, of Rochester,
executor of the estate of Ed ward Mahar, de
ceased. Mahar was sentenced to Auburn
prison for life, from Monroe county, ior the
murder of his wife. About a year ago he
died, leaving a will which devised nearly
all his property, which amounted to some
$8,000, to charitable institutions in and near
Rochester "When the estate came to be
settled, two notes signed by Mahar were pre
sented to the executors for payment One
note was for $8,000 and the other for $1,000.
The executor re I used to pay the notes and
the suit was the result.
The plaintiff tried to prove that the notes
were genuine, and called as his principal
witness J. M. DeVore, a keeper in Auburn
prison. DeVore's testimony was to the
effect that on May 2, 1888, Mahar and one
Johnson, a fellow-convict, came to him and
asked him to write two notes, one for $8,000
and the other for $1,000, payable to bearer
and due one year irom date. This De Vore
did, and Mahar signed them and gave them
to Johnson. This man Johnson was dis
charged soon afterward, and is now said to
be dead. The notes passed from Johnson to
De Vore's father, of Port Byron, then to
"William Graham, of the same place, and
finally to A. G. Graham, of Clyde, nephew
of "William Graham.
The defense endeavorad to show, and with
success, that the notes were forged. The
testimony of John Scanlan, an inmate of
the Monroe county pen; was very convinc
ing. Scanlan has been in prison in Auburn,
Rochester and Oswego, although he is but
26 years old. His brother was killed in
Rochester last spring by a railroad detec
tive, while stealing brass from a car. He
testified that on May 2, 1888, Keeper De
Vore told him that he wanted to get some
notes out of the "old man," meaning
Mahar, and that he gave him two sheets of
blank paper, to the bottom of each of which
he was to get Mahar's signature. The pa
pers were represented to be blank petitions
for Mahar's release, which would be filled in
with names afterward. The scheme worked,
and Mahar signed the papers, which Scan
lan handed to De Yore, who pocketed them
"There, that fixes him."
The jury was out five hours, and then
returned a verdict for the defendant, decid
ing that the plaintiff had no cause of action.

A DELIBERATE SUICIDE.
The Manner In Which au Episcopalian Min

Councii. Bluffs, Ia., November 23.
At noon to-day the body ot Rev. Martin F.
Horensen, an Episcopal clergyman, was
found in a woodshed in the rear of his prem
ises with a deep gash in the left side of
the neck and with another on the left wrist,
from which he had bled to death. It was a
case of deliberate suicide, as shown by the
surroundings. He had taken a bed com
forter from the house, spread it upon the
floor of the woodshed, removed his coat and
rolled it up so as to make a pillow for his
head on the comforter, removed his collar
and cutis, then sat down upon the impro
vised couph and inflicted the wounds that
resulted in his death.
It is supposed that he committed the act
on Friday afternoon, as he had not been
seen from 3 p. at, on that day until his body
was discovered this noon. Temporary in
sanity is the only reason that can be as
cribed. Mr. Horensen was 61 years of age,
and was rector of an Episcopal church at

THEIR EIGHTH DISAPPOINTMENT
Sends the Illinois Leaders From the White
Douse in Disgust.
A PROBABILITI OP TROUBLE IN BIGHT.
Messrs, Lyon and Warmeattls Pay a Flylns Visit to
President Harrison has told the Illinois
Senators and Congressmen thathe will have
more weighty matters on hand for some time
than the filling of Illinois offices. Whereat
Senators Farwell and Cullom are reported
as being highly disgusted. District At
torney Lyon and Collector Warmcastle pay
the capital a flying visit A relative of
Congressman, Kelley secures a fat ap
pointment in Philadelphia.
(SPECIAL TELEQBAX TO THE DI9PATCtt,l
Washington, November 23. A more
disgusted lot of people than the Illinois
colony in Washington it wonld not be easy
to find this side of the Republican camp of
the faithfnl and hungry in the city of
Chicago. President Harrison said to-day
very plainly, to Senators Farwell and Cul
lum and Dongressman Mason, that he was
tired talking of Illinois offices, and was too
busy with more important matters to give
them any further attention till after Con
gress had convened and, the message was
out of the way.
The President not only said this, but he
was very short about it, and his callers left
the White House in anything but a good
huntor, notwithstanding the fact that the
President told them that tha appointment of
Frank Hitchcock as Marshal, might be
looked for this evening or Monday. The
Marshalsbip is not much, compared with
the collectorships, and the Illinois people
see in this postponement said to be the
eighth formal postponement of the Chicago
Federal offices case which the President has
indulged in a
VEEX GLOOMY FORECAST
of the future. They say that appointments
will not De made now till alter tne noiioays,
and that if President Harrison does not look
out he will leave the Chicago offices in
charge of Democrats until the incoming of
another Democratic administration.
"The worst of it is," said an Illinoisan
who knows whereof "he speaks, i'the Presi
dent does not treat the Senators
and members from JHinois as if
they were men of importance, worthy
consideration. He treats them as if they
were mere boys. I don't see bow they stand
it, and my belief is that they won't stand it
very long. While there is much disgust
over the delay, it is certain that Senator
Farwell is in one respect very glad that the
President decided to drop the matter until
after Congress has resumed its sessions. A
Senator is twice as big a man when the Sen
ate is in session as he is during a recess.
Farwell is convinced that there is a strong
PBOBAB1XITY OF TROUBLE.
"The President is acting in a very peculiar
and, unsatisfactory manner, and Farwell is
in better condition, strategically, with the
matter postponed for ten days, than he
would-be if r.the climax were, tacwaa next
"On the very first occasion- oa -which the
President needs friends in the Senate it is
the purpose of Senator Farwell to show his
teeth, and if Cullom will join him they may
be able to make an - impression upon
the sovereign who now thinks it un
necessary to . give reason for his
failure to appoint men recommended to
him by Senators. Farwell and Cullom will
not force the fighting, nor go out of their
way to give Mr. Harrison a taste of their
mettle, hut let ii tow start as in a case like
that of Halstead, and see how quick the
Illinoisans will jump in and make it un
pleasant for the mystery of the White
House, and if there is to be a full and frank
discussion of the President's first message
during the interval between organization of
the House and the announcement of the
committees, as there are often is, keep your
eye on the Hon. William E. Mason."

was disposed of to-day, the appointment of
Shellmire as Pension Agent, following close
upon the appointment of Powers and Bidg

Hon. William D. Kelley, and was warmly
pressed by him.

Kelley to respect his wishes in this matter,

of a friend in Chester. It is said to be a
selection that will give general satisfaction
to Philadelphia Republicans.
