BROWSE IS VENOMOIS SPPEECH.
The debate lasted four hours. Dur
ing the course of the wrangling Rep
resentative Browne made one of the
most venomous speeches ever heard
on the floor of the house. Browne
took the floor In reply to Represen

program, had commended the gover

"Why, good God," said Browne in
speaking of Representative Hubbard's
reference to William Lorimer, "there
is as much of a comparison between
you and him as there would be be

Springfield, fll, Feb. 21. Standing
committees of the house will be ap
pointed by the speaker as in past
7rs. This was decided by the house
yesterday, by a vote of 72 to 69, after
one of the most bitter fights in the
history or the Illinois legislature. The
refusal of the house to adopt the com
mittee on committees system was a
defeat for Governor Dunne, who, with
the aid of Speaker McKinley, lined
up every possible vote in its support, j joyous word in it."

HUBBARD IS REPLY.
Representative Hubbard lost no
time in coming back at Browne.
"I didn't expect to draw forth the
venom and spleen of the gentleman
from La Salle." said Mr. Hubbard. "It
seems he cannot rise to the manhood

FEW TO PROGRESSIVES.
It is reported that Representative
Shanahan of Chicago, the republican
floor leader, who has been chairman
of the appropriations commltteedur
lng the last few sessions, will retain
that post with the approval of the
governor. A democrat will be placed
at the bead of the elections commit
tee. Other chairmanships probably
v.111 be divided between the democrats
and republicans. Inasmuch as all ex
cept one of tbj" progressives are new
members they are not likely to receive
any important chairmanships.
Three propositions were before the
house during the debate on the com
mittee on committees. Representative
Rapp, leading the fight for the Dunne
program, presented a resolution pro
viding that a committee on rules, with
the speaker chairman, should be elect
ed from the floor of the house with
the power to name the standing com
Representative McLaughlin, as the
leader of the anti-Dunne democrats.
then offered a substitute resolution
which provided that a committee of 18
sl'ould be elected to be composed of
niue democrats, including the speaker,
six republicans, two progressives and
ote socialist. The McLaughlin com
mittee was the one put through the
democratic house conference of Tues-
dny nlgnt wmcn uovernor uuuue re-
fused to approve because of the aaai
j tier, of Browne, Sullivan. Garpsche and
Fahey to the slate originally passed
uiwn bv the governor.
Representative Hull, on behalf of!
' te republicans then offered a second
I substitute resolution. This resolution j
' provided that the speaker should ap- j
point a committee on rules consisting
of eight members and himself which
rbould draft a permanent set of rules

the committee should be instructed to

This was the only resolution voted
upon. The McLaughlin forces made
ro effort to stand by their own reso
lution, but swung solidly to the. re
publican proposal, which was adopted
by a vote of 72 to 69. 8nite was the
