Washington', Oct. 21. If the house
of riMircscntutives had not been In n
condition of diso'rter yesterday after
no hi when nothing short of a prize
llsjlit would attract attention, there
would havebjen a scene of general
interest. As it was Representative
Curtis of the Fourth Kansus district
gIiooIc Ills list in the face of Represen
tative Simpfioii of the Seventh Kansas
district, and shouted, "You are a
1 telling a falsehood."
The bill was pendini; requiring the
railroad companies to estab.ish sta
tions and stop trains at the govern
ment towns in the Cherokee outlet.
Mr Curtis had made known his ob
jection to tint bill as renorted, and
-Mr. Simpson was mulcing- a speech for
the bunclit of his anti-railroad con
stituency in Kansas.
Simpson was on Ills Iavorito topic,
and ho proceeded to tear corpora
tions of all Itinds, tin I r.iilroad corpor
ations In particular, to pieces, lie
was surprised at the tittittiduof the
gentleman from Kansas, he said, who
wanted to postpone action on the b.ll
until ho could telegraph back home
mid see what tho railroad companies
wanted. "Ho appe.irs here," said
Simpson, at the same time shaking
his lingers to cmphusli- his renrirks,
"as the attorney of tho Santa Fo nnd
Hock Island companies, which colon
ized 11,000 negroes in my ilktrk-t and
maintained them there six months,
in order to defeat mo because I had
opposed them ill congress "
The meek, mild-mannered repre
sentative of tho Fourth district had
left hU own seat and taken one n few
feet from Simpson's. His face showed
lie was very mad, and he ha I two or
throe times attempted to break into
Simpson's speech, but the latter kept
right on talking' ULtit iTc liad.tluished
u long tirade of abuse and then Curtis
got a chance
"I should like to ask if tho gentle
man refers to me as the representa
tive of the railroad companies," said
"I did," retorted Simpson, "for tho
reason that the gentleman told me ho
wanted to telegraph home before any
final vote was taken "
Then tho dark-skinned and usually
courteous man from Topoka raised
himself on his toes until he looked to
bo quite live feot seven and turning
to Simpson with his clenched list
dealing the nir attempted to thunder
"You are u d ." but he stopped
himself in time, and fell back on the
more solid foundation of his entire
foot Then ho gathered more forco
to himself tuid completed his sentence,
"telling a falsehood." This seemed
to satisfy hi m und then Simpson had
"To whom did you want to tele
graph if not to the railroad compa
nies?" nbUfld Simpson.
Speaker Crisp saw something was
wrong and brought his gavel down to
jjcll the incipient riot After n short
colloquy between Representative Me
