OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER.
REED WILL BE SPEAKER.
The statements of democratic
newspapers that a movement had
been started among Eepublicans
to defeat the nomination of Thomas
B. Heed for the speakership of the
next house and that the adminis
tration desires his defeat , have
been given an unqualified denial
by Representative Grosvenor of
Ohio , whose authority will hardly
General Grosveuor says that the
name of Mr. Beed will be the only
one mentioned in the caucus of the
Republican party for speaker of
the house of representatives and
that he will be nominated unani
mously and enthusiastically elected
by the same unanimous vote of the
Republican membership of the
house. The administration , said
General Grosvenor , will not only
not oppose Mr. Reed , but in his
opinion it would be the height of
bad politics if any known friend of
the administration should be found
engaged in anj'thing of that char
acter. "If it was deemed advisa
ble four years ago and two years
ago to elect Mr. Reed speaker , "
said the Ohio congressman , "by
much stronger reasons it is desir
able now that he should not only
be elected , but that he should be
elected without opposition by the
entire party. " There can be no
doubt that all republicans who
have the interests of the party at
heart will be in accord with this
It is well understood that Mr.
Reed is not in sympathy with the
territorial expansion idea and also
that he does not approve of the
proposal of the currency reformers
to retire the United States legal
tender notes. Doubtless there are
some among these elements who
would like to see him deposed from
the speakership , but they should
understand that his influence would
not thereby be weakened , though
his power in giving direction to
legislation would be abridged.
On the floor of the house the com
manding force and authority of
Thomas B. Reed as a leader would
still be felt. But his place in a
republican house is in the speak
er's chair , where he has never had
a superior and there is where at
least nine-tenths of the republicans
of the nation want him to remain.
ALLEN'S plurality is 80.

SPECULATION is already rife as
to who will be Senator Allen's suc
cessor. Among the possibilities
are : D. E. Thompson , M. L. Hayward -
ward , A. W. Field , B. J. Hainer ,
G. M. Lambertson , M. B. Reese.
And the campaign is just opened.
"I WOULD not , " says Senator
Hale , "take the Philippines if
Spain would give 840,000,000 with
them. " This is the first intimation

WHATEVER rnay be the prospects
for the continuance of the war
taxes , the gum on the goverment's
documentary stamps was certainly
not made to stick. This is really a
a serious matter , as the "shedding"
of a stamp from a check or docu
ment may render it invalid in law
and entail serious loss.
