Wilson's nnmu very freely, and said some
very saucy things regarding him. Wil
son resented It, the lie passed, and ink
bottles, paper weights, and oilier missiles
llewauross the secretary's ollico with
dangerous rapidity. Felker stood be
hind the secretary's desk, with ids hand
on his revolver, and kept up a cannonad
ing ol oath, whllu Wilson cantered
around the room in a terrible passion,
sklriiiMihig with great activity,
but avoiding a general wngagc
meiit. It was so ludicrous
that the bystanders had no desire to stop
it. Several newspaper men witnessed
the battle from behind sofas nnd other
screens. Hut the secretary brought his
batteries to bear on the combatants and
silenced lltelr guns. Outsiders wero ex

a reconciliation took place, and Felker
was;dloived to continue ids story, it Is
