Notwithstanding It hat been published In

whether t hey will do so or not, and for this reason
the District Militia have taken no steps for their

has been intimated that Governor Hayes desires
to have all dtfplays dispensed with. However, It

draw There wai a speck of wah at the Capitol
yesterday. The etalwartCongreeeman Willis, of
New York, he of the Mephistophelean eye brow,
undertook to discipline a doorkeeper named
Hants according to the rules of the London prise
ting. It was a square out and out, rough and
tumble fight, but luckily did not involve the
country lu anything more serious than having a
legislator with a black eye. It was Mid about
the Capitol that tho scrimmage was only a part
of the programme ofthe filibusters, and Intended
to divert attention from the electoral count and
prolong the debate. Hut this is but a mere
speculation and we only give It for what 1. Is
Congressman WlUJs, who Is a sort of Jack Fal
staff In bodily proportions, heard that a friend of
his had asked the doorkeeper at the north or
main entrance to the ooor of the House te take a
card to him. The doorkeeper, acting under In
itructlons not to convey any cards to members
during the debate on the Presidential eount, re
fused to carry this visitor's card to Willis. When
the latter learned of the refusal he was very
angry, and about three o'clock went out Into the
lobby to settle with the doorkeeper In person.
People who witnessed the encounter fay that
ico wokdb wrnt tabbed
between the combatants. Willis went straight
to the doorkeeper, whose name Is Harris, and who
was sitting in the lobby, chewlog tobacco and
squirting the Juice on the marble floor, and rudely
pushed him, off bis seat. Harris was net alow to
gather himself up, but be had no sooner half re
sumed his equilibrium than the bellicose Willis
struck him a heavy blew on the chest, which sent
Mr. Harris sprawling on the tiles. Harris, who
proved himself a nimble fellow, sprang up very
quickly, and In good style let 07 his left mauley

notwithstanding bis ponderous avoirdupois,
dropped like a bundle or rags, his fall snaking

about to follow his advantage, when Congress.
men Hurchard opportunely Interferred, and no
more blowi were passed. Many persons were at
tracted to the spot by the encounter, bet It wae
over so quickly that very few of then law any
Harris, who Is a slender man, from North Caro
line bore away no marks from the affray
but soon retired from his post, having gained
sufficient honor for one da v. Willis
received two scratches on the left cheek, from
which blood flowed quite freely. He withdrew to
the floor of the House, and disappeared In the
eloak room, where his wounds were bathed.
When he reappeared on tho floor, tho marks lea
by Harris flats were scarcely notleeable. Willis
was greatly excited durleg the rest or the after
noon and evening.
Harris friends expect that Willie will make aa
attempt to hare him ousted, but they claim that,
in that event, there will bo a strong fight for
Harris on the part of the Southern Democrats,
and Willis will not have strength enough to oust
Latir. It le understood that Mr. Harris has
Ih limited that he will challenge Mr. Willis If he
Is removed from hU position.
