Washington-, Match 5. After the com
mittee of the whole r.rose in the houst
yesterday afternoon from considering pri
vate bills, Kilpore moved to take recess tc
C p. m. A vote showed S- ayes, St nays,
and Knloe d.-m!ined tellers, which were
refused. Tiieu Knloe made the point that
no quorum had "voted."
TheSpoaker-Thc gentleman from Tcnne
Bee makes the point of no quorum. The rhaii
will have tr, point tellers. Heed The gentle,
man from Tern Osx not make the point
fcf no qnnrni i. Ho m.tkes tlie point that ne
quorum had v.ited.
The Seuker - Under the present administra
tion of the rules of the house the chair hold
that gentlemen are not preent unless tln-y
Tote, Appla.fse on the Democratic sick
Heed That shows that a new fystem of par
mentary tactUs has been adopted since tL
The Spraker- It shows that the present oc
cupant of the chair will endeavor to eufon 6
the rules of the house as tliey now exist. Ap
plause on the Democratic side Reed -The b
nervation that I made is entirely correct as to
the point of no quorum voting.
The Speaker I do not think that the penile
man wa in order Leu he made the point.
Heed I was entirely in order wh n I called
the attention of the gentleman to the fact.
The S pcuker-The chair thinks not. Th
Toint as rnai'.e, not by the gentlenxi from
Maine, l.nt i y somebody else. The iv"e'
tertained the point, whereupon the penThv.D
from Maine afterwards made the supgeslion
as to the point of no quorum. Heed And
thereupon 1 said to the chair that the gentle
man made the point that no quorum h:.d
voted, and that the chair stated to be the point
of no quorum present There is a difference in
the proposition and I had the rvht to call the
attention of the chair to that and the chaii
had no right to make such a it tort: not even it
he was supported by the disorderly applause
on his side of the house, which Jie permitted.
The Spcuker The chair will t;ite that there
Is a wide difference between the point of no
quorum and the joint of no quorum voting
as it was made under the rul.-s of the last con
gress. Applause on the iK-mocratic sid--.
Enloe The chair is abundantly sustained by
authorities in making retorts to gentlemen on
the floor. The Speaker The chair does not in
tend to recognize that.
An this remark clooed the colloquy.
ENLOE HAS A PROMPTER,
And Bnssey and the Chairman Have a
WASHINGTON, March 5. General Bussey
resumed his testimony before the Kaum
investigating committee yesterday, and
went into a long explanation of the recent
order issued by the pension bureau, and
known as the "completed files order." He
contended that such an order would facili
tate the business of the office and the
pensioners; it was fair and just, and would
not be detrimental to a claimant who had
not secured the services of an attorney.
Bussey, in answer to a question by Enloe,
said that no employe who testified before
the committee need have fear of having
his official head chopped off for any state
ments he might make, provided he con
fined himself to the truth.
"Xone of Bussey's Business."
Enloe asked if sons or relatives of the
members of the board of appeals were on
the examining board.
Bussey replied that such was not the
case, and, pointing to a man behind En
loe, said he objected to the information of
the prompter, and asked that he make
himself known and put his questions
plainly to him and he would answer them.
This led to a discussion and Enloe in
formed Bussey that the identity of the man
was none of his business.
Bussey retorted that he did not care to
have the character of his board of appeals
SPRINGER IS PULLING THROUGH.
The Fatient In Hopeful and Shows
Washington, March 5. The chief con
cern of the doctors is for the enfeebled
mental and physical condition of Repre
sentative Springer. They fear nervous
prostration and are doubtful us to the
strength of the patient to bring him
through if this takes place. But the
change from hopelessness to hopefulness in
the mind of the sick man has given them
considerable confidence, and it is believed
that a refreshing sleep will do more than
anything else towards bringing him back
to health and strength.
Chief Cause of Concern Kemoved.
Early yesterday morning he slept for a
short time, but little refreshment resulted,
llowever, the success which has attended
the efforts of the physicians in keeping the
erysipelas from attacking his brain has
removed the chief cause for concern and
the greatest reliance in his recovery is
placed in the patient's optimistic nature.
There was a marked improvement in the
condition of the patient all yesterday.
1 10:30 last night the improvement of
the morning in Mr. Springer's condition
till continued and the patient was appar
ently progressing favorably.
