Johnson Makes the Debate on the Paclfte
H.llw.y. Bill Exceedingly I.t.reatln.
far a. Hoar and .eU Koaated b, Cooper
of Wisconsin. Who Tau.U Hl:n with We-
feat tn a Kepoblieaa District-Pottery
Before Uioaley'a Committee.
Washington, Jan. 9. An attack by
Johnson of California on Mayor Sutro
and Editor Hearst, of San Francisco,
and the reply to Cooper of Wisconsin
was the feature of the house debate on
the Pacific railways funding bill. John
son is always a "red-hot" speaker and
for twenty minutes he poured denun
ciation on the mayor and the editor.
He said, with reference to the Pacific
roads, that the fact that the projectors
of the roads had made money was some
things some members could not forget
Everybody wanted to make money.
What would those who denounced
Huntington have done if they had had'
the building of the roads? "If Mayor
Putro and that Hearst," to whom he
applied an opprobrious adjective, "had
built these roads they would not only
have made money; thev would have
bankrupted the government itself. Sup
pose the projectors did make money,
the question with us as membera and
custodians of the government's inter
ests is: How shall we get the govern
ment s money back? Johnron de
nounced the ex-members who were
"lobbying" on the floor against the bill.
Ho then proceeded to argue that it was
idle to insist that the roads should pay
r.icre in interest than they were able.
California Members All Lugged.
He next declared with much feeling
that there was not a member from
California, except possibiy B v, ra, who
if he would express his honest senti
ments would not support this measure.
Be said they were all swtaM of a news
paper of San Francisco. All this ful
mination against the bill, be said, was
due to Adulph Sutro and William K.
Hearst. The mention of these names
seemed to arouse all the pent up ire in
Johnson's nature, and he proceeded to
Tour out the vials of his wrath upon
them. Johnson is always a vigorous
talker inclined to use strong diction,
but the members who sat listening to
him were not prepared for the p.illlppic
which he laumhcil at these two men.
He stetaflsal H' ars.'s connection with the
San Francisco Kxatuiner. and how he
had built up thai paper, and said
the people of California admired hiin.
He said they were suspicions at first,
ami knew that Hoarst was erratic in his
conduct. He then made insinuations
and allegations ajiainst Mr. Hearst's
personal habits, but added that the peo
ple believed he was honest.
Kditor Intimidate the People.
This was followed by more aensa
tional charges, and vituperative
language. "And that is the
man." he added. "who has
created all this furore in California.
He said that Hearst had intimidated the
people ana createa terrorism among
them with his paper. The paper had
maligned and caricatured people in the
housi the chairman of the committee
(Towers), anil the honored apeaker. "I
will not speak for myself." he said,
"because I can gn reas. nably payasi with
this man before I get through with
him." He said that Hearst had issued
his edict that any man who dared favor
th? funding bill, "shall be driven from
public life and lie ruined in private
life, and shall be disgraced before the
people and the gods."
OMIXOrS 8ILKNCK THEV APPEARS.
Which Is Broken tp by the Voice of Coop
er of Wisconsin.
When Johnson concluded his speech
there was an ominous silence on the
floor. Arnold of Pennsylvania made a
brief speech for the measure, but the
house was still buzzing withthe sensation
created by theCaliforr.ia speaker. When
Arnold had finished. Cooper of Wiscon
sin, one of the strongest foes of the Pa
cific bill, now as in the past, took the
floor. About the first words that fell
gentleman from California," he said;
"in view of the exhibition which we
gentleman from California," he said.
"In view of the exhibition which we
saw as I think, one of the most dis
garcoful known in the annals of the
legislative history of the United States
the attacking of a man absent from
this place, in a manner known only to
cowards, blackening his name, ruining
ii (If it were in the power of the gen
tleman from California to ruin anybody
who has cvr had any reputation at all)
to the best of his ability I feel It prop
er for me to say at least a few words."
Cooper then paid a high tribute to
Hearst and te hard work h- has done
to build up his papers, and declared he
did not think that anything he had
done entitled a meml-er to attack him
as the gentleman from California had
done. Cooper turned to Johnson and
continued: "Let the galled Jade wince.
The gentleman was in a republican
district. He botdlv chamr-ir, .k
funding bill and is buried under a ma
jority of 5.01. The gentleman whom
he so infamously and wilfully maligned
is not responsible for his defeat. It is
the know ledge the peopln ,,f tm? sta,e
of California have that the power of
the Southern Pacilic Kailroad company,
whom the gntlman from California
presumes to Ih a championing here on
the floor in the face of the people, has
been used to th"ir detriment. Th. y
know of the manner In which that ear
potation has for yars past treated the
people t,f that state.
"The people of California have i,ffPn

history f the I nited State has been
treated by any other corporation either
railroad or otherwise. They have de

OFFICIAL SOCIETY IX A TI RMOIL.
All Beeaoac Mrs. Secretary Francis Makes
a Mistake lo Etlqaette.
Washington. Jan. 9. Official society
in Washington is all in a turmoil, and
Mrs. Francis, wife of the newly-appointed
secretary of the interior. Is the
cause of it. The row all grows out of a
violation of official etiquette peculiar to
Washington, and social gossips are
talking themselves hoarse over the
question as to wheater the wife of the
secretary of the interior merely made a
mistake or intended to snub some of her
callers. It seems that Instead of return
ing some formal calls she hired uni
formed messenger boys to distribute her
cards, end now the Washington official
400 is red In the face.
The affair has created on end of talk,
and has resulted In calling attention
to the fait that the only other Instance
when the unique maner of returning
calls was adopted was In the case of
another Ft. Louis woman, the late Mrs.
Noble, who was curiously enough also
the w ife of the secretary of the Interior.
Mrs. Noble did not trust to a messenger
lioy. but sent out a ntm on a bicycle,
who distrihub d cards upon official and
resident soclctv. and the result was ar

New York. Jan. 9. A Key West dis
patch to The World says: Reports from
Pinar del Rio contradict General Wey
ler's statement that all is calm and
peaceful there. A large detachment of
Insurgents attacked a convoy of sup
plies twenty-five miles south of Artem
isa, defeating the Spaniards and captur
ing a large supply of camp equipage
and ammunition. Near Pinar del Rio
city on Tuesday 400 Cubans, hidden In
a dense thicket, fired on SM Spanish
cavalry passing, throwing them Into
confusion. The Spanish rallied and
charged, only to plunge Into deep
trenches prepared for th. m. The Cu
bans had withdrawn after the first fire,
but as the Spanish horsemen tumbled
Into the Jitches the Insurgents fln-U Into
the mass with great rapidity: causing
great slaughter. Attracted by the Br
ing another Spanish squadron dashed
up and was met w ith a withering Are
fr.im the concealed Cubans. The Span
ish finally retreated, after losing per
haps seven! y-Bve men. The Cubins
lost only Ave. The Spanish officials,
however, claimed a great victory In
their official report.
AmbUM-ade Again! Aaahwaeada.
A report from points near Matansrus
confirms the news received of a defeat

of one of Onmcs'a captains on Tues
day. The Spaniards had an td.-a that
another expedition was tn he lard -1

the coast. Two detachments were feat

thought the Culaans would sv-nd. Thi
the Cubans hoatd of and organised a

Advices received here from Havana
show that a 4 o'clock on the afternoon
of Jan. 3 the Insunrent force command
ed by Juan Lb-lgado opened Are on the
forts at Calahaxar. province of Havana.
The military governor. Major Just is.
had charge of the troops in the gar

the insurgents so briskly that the latter
were obliged to retreat. On the follow -In
t morning the Insurgents re-new od
their nttack simultaneously on folia No.
and R. with a lively discharge of
musketry, which was answered by the
garrisons. At the same time the Insur
gents burned the An- dwelling of 8 -nor
Fernando Garcia, situated near the rail
road station. The Aames from the burn
ing building brightly illuminated the
city, causing great alarm among the
people in the town.
The bullets ffew thickly, many of the
