THE WASHINGTON TIMES, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 10: 1912.
RULING ON WHIST
LEADS TO TIFF
Democratic Peace and Har-
mony Disturbed on
The aad slorjr of how .Democratic
peace and harmony was rudely broken
Into, when the member of the Appro
priation! Committee of the Home were
on their way to Panama to aee the
canal and "study Its need," shortly
before the ahort session of Congress,
found Ita way Into the Capitol today.
Much ai they 'deprecated the rude
joitllng given to hannpny In the party,
Democrats In the House and even au
gust Senators on the Democratic side,
lapped up the recital of the occurrence
with an avidity that was surprising.
Briefly, tho story la to the effect that
while the members of the commute
were pacifically enjoying a whist game
a dispute over the rules arose between
Chairman Fltigerald, of the Appropria
tions Committee, and Congressman
Charles Lafayetle Bartlett of Georgia.
The upshot of It was that a fist fight
ensued. Mr. Bartlett, who Is small,
hut wiry, and withal extremely quick,
smashed hard at the.face of the Brook
lyn Congressman an broke the latter'a
The two contestants were parted be
fore much damage occurred other than
to the spectacles. And until now the
scrap has be:n carefully hushed up.
As the story runs about tho House, It
Is alleged that "Fits." who Is king bee
of tho parliamentarians, tried to pro
mulgate a new rule In whist. At least,
Bartlett thought It was a new rule, and
he Insurged. He wouldn't stand for It,
and there was a hot discussion, which
the lasy lapping of the tropical waves
along the vessel's sides did not calm.
Finally, the Georgia member arose In
his place, and, without' wasting any
time In declarations of war, he pro
ceeded to try an upper cut at the New
The blow demolished the spectacles.
Whether Chairman Fitzgerald didn't
want to strlka back or whether he
couldn't see without his glasses Is not
material to the story. Anyhow, the
other players jumped In to restore
peace. Congressman Swagar Bherley of
Kentucky helped restore order,- and the
row ended by Fltxgerald lecturing Bart
lett and telling him he ought to keep
Said Was a Felony.
"In our State," said Fitzgerald, "It's
a felony to strike a man with glasses."
Moreover, Fitzgerald told Bartlett
that he had got up the trip and made
ud the narty and felt a cerlaln resnnn-
albtllty for It. He chlded the Georgia
memDer ior ma nomeaaeaness. wnat
became of Fitzgerald's new rule on
-nhlst Is not stated. Old timers 'about
the House recalled this was not the
tint time Judge Bartlett had got Into
a row with a colleague. Some of them
with long memories went back to the
time when Bartlett picked up an un
bound copy of the Congressional Rec
ord In the House one day years ago
and stirred a commotion by hurling It
at Brumm of Pennsylvania. The pro
jectile did no damage.

came known last winter as something
of a sketch writer. Tho monologue
