field of politics, which has never been
n source of profit, and oft has given
him hardly a comfortable support.
Like every other man who reaches
middle life, Senator Hill looks for
ward to achieving mibstantlnl finan
cial Independence by maintaining his
established and ell settled profes
sional practice. He Is devoting his
best energies to that end nnd there
fore he Is not Inclined to respond fo
such calls ns have been made by the
Texns legislature and by prominent
Democratic leaders and organizations
in the South and West.
"Those who have Intimate personal
relations with Senator Hill greatly
doubt whether he will evei consent
to lead his party again In a presiden
tial campaign. While ho Is averse to
making public expression of his feel
ing in the matter, his determination
It not a fecret. Dooted as he ha
been for so many years to his party's
welfare, his wlthdiawal from politic'
Is regarded as Impossible. He will
continue to be an Influential factor,
but this will not Inerfero with a con
viction ho hns lecently expressed to
many friends that ofllce-lioldlng is un
satisfactory and unprofitable."
Thomas M'Henry, of Bloomsburg,
Dies from the Effects of Bullet
Fhed from His Bnvn.
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Tress
Bloomsburg, Pa., Feb. 3. At 1
o'clock this morning. Thomas Mo
Henry, a well to do lumber merchant
and farmer, residing near Royersbur?,
Columbia county, was Hiot by nn un
known assassin, and death ensued six
hours later. Mr. McIIenry was mous
ed from his sleep by n noise In bis
J barn, and he nroM dressed and went
to the barn to Investigate. As ha
neared the place a shot rang out and
McIIenry fell. The bullet struck him
Just above the heart and passed out
of his back. Mrs. McIIenry nt onco
summoned aid and tho victim was
taken Into his home. He was con
srlous for several hours, but was un
able to name the murderer. He lapsed
Into an unconscious ttate, In which
condition ho remained until his death
at 7 o'clock. It Is the general belief
that It was a case of cold-blooded
murder, although every precaution
had been tnken to make It appear as
a case of frustrated robbery. Several
sacks of Hour had been taken from
tho barn and placed so that It would
appear that they left because of tho
hurried departure after the shoot
ing. Tho assassin was tracked for
some distance and It was evident that
he had no conveyance and thereforo
could not have taken away tho sackj
of flour with which he sought to cover
up the murder.
No nrrcsts havo been made by tho
authorities, nor Is any reason given
for tho murder. It Is reported that
sensational developments may follow.
Mr. McIIenry was 35 years of age, and
leaves a wlfo and six children.

Washington, Feb. 3. Secretary Long

rgnlsc their service. I need not sty t ou
that no one feels this more keenly tlun myself,
or has done mor to endeavor to wjcuro Juttirn
for the men who conducted and consummated
the Santiago naval campaign. Wilt you let ma
wy that the "del.'.v" is not with the. sxecutlv
branch of the Boummcnt so much as with con

mrmbers of the Irgislatuto fetl in the case, I do
it Is more than two years now since the presl.
lent sent in nomination. for promotion, and
these nomination have never leen acted upon
by the euale. At e.itli nevlon of congress I
havo prepared nnd ruhmiltcd bills, asking for
rewards for these officers; no action has been
taken upon them. In cf.ch of my annual repoits
I 1-ave urged the matter with all the force poi
slide, hut It attract no attention. The president
has asked for the creation of the grade of vie
iidmiral, which would peihaps lead to a solu
lion of tho matter
I feet keenly the lack of any recognition to
Hobson, who-c feat is famous (lie world over. I
have repeatedly talked about him with the presi
dent, vtliu, as you know, feels tho most cordial
inteiekt in behalf of all these men. lie cannot
separate llobaon' case fiom the rest nor can I
sdris him to do co. It would bo an unjust dis
crimination against Captain Clarke, to whom jou
refer, nnd who I two numbers worse off now
than if there had been no war; it would bo an
Injustice fo the commander In elilef, who plann"'
and rontumnnted the whole campaign and who
hid a greater rc-pomll'lllty upon him for a
longer time thin any olflcer on tho Atlantic; it
would discriminate .ig.iinvt the enlisted men, vvhn
