Washington, Jan. 11. The houso
late yesterday took on ihc appearance
of the closing dayn of the fifty-fifth

between mcmherH were frequent.
Late In the afternoon, Mr. Haines

only prevented from meeting In i
personal encounter by the Interven
tion of mcmherH. Mr. Gaines was
making a speech on his hill to "dock"
members' pny for absence from the

sides of the chamber to his evident
embarassment, when ho charged Mr.
Mahon with being nb'cnt from the
