lina Senator's Own Peculiar, Picturesque
Style Beed Scored.
Washington, March 2. Senator Till
man, of South Carolina, provoked a tur
bulent scene in the senate last night
when he charged that the armor plate
manufacturers had their paid agents In
that body who were robbing the govern-
ESATOB TILLS! AX
,-nent.The charge was resented by Hawley,
whereupon Tillman replied that "the
galled jade winces," and it looked for a
time as though a personal conflict was
imminent, until Hawley was escorted to
the cloak room. Hawley and Squire had
spoken against Chandler's amendment
to the naval appropriation bill to reduce
the ppicef armor plate to $300 a ton and
Elkins had complained of the lack of
information on the cost of the armor
plate, wlun Tillman took the floor. "Al
though a member of this naval commit
tee." began Tillman, who followed Elk-
Ins; "and although I have given as
much time to this question as I could
spare from my other duties, I am not
able to give the senator as much in
formation fts he wants. But I am able
to say,"' he added, with emphasis, "that
no recent expenditure of the government
has been so reeking with fraud and so
disgraceful to those connected with it.
Charges Collusion in Warship Bids.
When Secretary Whitney made the
first contracts for armor plate it was
understood that those enormous prices
were to be paid only for a time, and on
account of the great expenditure neces
sary to build an armor plate plant.
The new navy was now beginning to'
be something respectable. When last
year tinder the impetus of the Vene.
zuelan war scare the house had sent
a proposal for four battleships to the
senate the number had been fixed at
three because there were only three
yards in the country that could build
such s"hips. The three companies had
agreed upon the prices, had bid in col
iusion, ana consequently the govern
ment was paying over a million and a
half more, for these ships than was
Insinuation Against Senator Hawley.
Then coming to the armor plate ques
tion he said: "Instead of us controling
the monopolies, the monopolies have this
senate in their vicious pocket." Hawley
at this charge half rose from his chair
as though he would interpose an ob
jection, then changed bis mind and sank
I would hate to say or even in

his glasses in his hand, "'that these
armor plate manufacturers have their
paid agents in this senate."
Then Hawley rose, beginning: "Does

Tillman took the words from his
mouth. T dare to say," he shouted.

- ii tne senator cares to say, or even
to Insinuate such a disgraceful thing,
he Fays what is untrue and what is un
worthy of a gentleman," Hawley re
plied very deliberately and emphatical
ly. The galleries were crowded and at
this exchange of charges a deep hush
succeeded their buzzing. Tillman was
unruffled. He thrust a hand In his
trousers pocket nonchalantly.and looking
over to Hawley coolly returned: "To
that I can only say it is the 'galled jade
that winces.' "
Hawley turned pale and trembled vis.
Ibly. "If the senator applies that to me
I have a sufficient answer." he said an
Two or three other senators gathered
around Hawley. endeavoring apparent
ly to calm him. Finally he walked
with them into the cloak room while
Tillman continued his speech.
I don't want to say anything harsh,"
he said. "God knows I've got enough
vitriol in me now." Going on with the
subject of armor plate he said he could
see no explanation for tbe state of af
fairs except that tbe manufacturers had
their friends in the senate chamber. The
trusts had the government down and
their hands in Its pockets, yet if any
one-opposed them if any one proposed
that the government do its work, make

quick to bring out the awful spectre of
Continuing Tillman said there was
still darker history, of the dealings of
the Carnegies with the government. He
referred to the charges of making de
fective armor in 1894. "The thieves were
caught," he said, ''but they were re-
leased. The secretary Imposed a fine.
but this glorious president of ours, who,
thank God. goes out of office in two
days more, remitted the fine. And yet
in the face of these facts a senator with

SEN'ATE GETS DOWN TO WORK.
No Further Danger of the Appropriation
Bills Failing to Pass.
Washington, March 2. The senate
pressed steadily forward on the appro
priation bills yesterday, making such
progress that no further apprehension
is felt as to the passage of these great
fiscal measures. The District of Co
lumbia bill was passed early in the day.
The naval bill brought out a hot con
test on the price cf armor plate and the
senate committee had recommended a
maximum price of Ji00 a ton. This was
reduced to $300 and the bill passed at
midnight. There was a very acrimon
ious controversy between Tillman and
Hawley, the former having charged
that there were boodlers in the senate,
which the latter denounced as false.
The house sent the sundry civil and
poEtofflce bills to conference and passed
some measures of no particular impor
tance generally. An attempt to pass
the bill prohibiting "graphic" reports of
prize fights failed and the bill went over
as unfinished business. The argument
against the bil was that it established a
press censorship. A bill was passed to
provide for the transmission to Wash
ington cf presidential election returns
by mail. The bill abolishes the system
