The oflicial appraisal of the es
tate of Thomas 15. Reed, ex-Speak
er of the House of Representative,
who died on December 7 last, shows
that be owned personal property
worth $629,533, besides some real
estate in Portland, Me. The de
ductions for debts and expenses
haye reduced the net value of the
personality to $431,01)9. Under
his will all of nis estate goes to his
widow. Mr. Reed, among his other
assete, had a balance due him from
the brokerage firm of Moore and
Schely of $102,170, which has been
paid. He held large amounts of
stocks and securities, among which
were 1220 s nares of Metropolitan
Street Railway Company stocks,
valued at $167,2.50; 900 shares of
N.rthern Securities Company,
worth $95,850; 400 shares of Brook
lyn Union Gas Company, worth
$90,000, and 2000 shares of Otis
Elevator stock, yalued at $78,000.
The popular impression that Mr.
Reed was a comparatively poor
man when he left the Speaker's
chair in 1899 is probably not well
founded. Mr. Reed was an able
lawyer, but even . able lawyers do
not earn and save nearly $500,000
in less than four years. Roscoe
Gonkling, after nearly seven years'
law practice in New York City,
died worth about $700,000, but Mr.
Conkling occupied far higher rank
at tbe New York bar, both as a
jurist and an eloquent advocate,
than Mr. Reed ever obtained, and
Mr. Conkling bad the most lucra-

Furthermore, Mr. Reed, while an outer nentinel, Mrs. R H
intellectual man, was alwavs an j musidttn, Anna Torgtsot
indolent lawyer, but Mr. Conkling ; Howing ura WooJid
was industrious, energetic, learneu
and able. The probability is that
Mr. Reed made a good deal of his
money in stock speculations. His
