Exciting Scene at the Pension
THE CHAIEMAN PUTS ON WAS PAINT
And Strives for Chance to "Here It
Ont" with the Commissioner, to Whom
H $tvi the Lie . Direct A Fierce
Struggle to Prevent the Spilling of
Gore Capital City Correspondents Hot
Ins; to Worry the Senators Who Voted
to OImfs Young Official Items.
WAsmNCTO; April 27. "I'm not afraid
of any niaojiving.'' ..These were the words
of Pension! Commissioner Green "B. Raum
yesterday Awhile Chairman Enloe of the
pension investigating eommittee was
strugglingnia the arms of half a dozen
men trying to get at the commissioner to
do him bodily harm. The scene was an
exciting one and Kanm ended it for the
time, at least, by taking his hat a mo
ment later and leaving the room. He may
have avoided, by this action, a personal
rncounter with Enloe, but probably
Enloe's friends would have held the irate
representative and av erted actual hostili
ties. The lie had been passed and Euloe
had started for the commissioner when
pionioned by the peacemakers.
Tlie lleginniiig or the Row.
According to eyewitnesses Enloe was
endeavoring to ascertain who had furnish
ed a certain amount of money ($15) to cor
rupt an employe of the pension office as
alleged. Commissioner Haunt denied all
knowledge of the transaction, but Enloe
kept firing questions at the commissoner,
all indicating that he did not believe the
denial. Judge Payson, of Illinois, Com
missioner Raum's attorney, finally said:
"Have yiA not had enough denials?" Be
fore Enloe could reply Commissioner
Raum added in a sarcastic tone: "Xo, he
wants another." "You're a liar!" shouted
Enloe, jumping from his sent in an excit
ed manner. 'You're another," retorted
Raum, rising to his feet.
Knloe Makes a Wild Rush.
Instantly Enloe mde a wild rush for the
commissioner of pensions, and there would
have been a conflict had not several per
sons preseut seized the infuriated chair
man of the committee and held him firmly.
While he was thusa captive he struggled
to get at the comiifl'ihioner, and picked up
a glass sponge cup, aftd wod have hurled
it at the coniuiissiijuer. A' ready hand
took it away from l.ijn, and others seized
the chairman, securejy holding him. While
this was going on liuum exclaimed that
there was not a man living that he feared,
but added that he viauted.no personal dif
ficulty, and then IcA the room.
They Do Not Love Each Oilier.
For A long time tljere has been a bitter
feeling between Eujloe and the commis
sioner, arming ont (Sf the investigation,and
yesterday's incident! was not entirely un
expected. ' Euloe, who is a newspaper
man, having edited The Tribune and Sun
at Jackson, Tenn., has ample courage. He
is some six feet tall, rather spare, with
brown hair and short whiskers. He is
about 42 years old, and has been in con
gress three terms. He is a good debater
and figured conspicuously in several nota
ble discussions with ex-Speaker Keed dur
ing the "billion-dollar" congress.
Waiting for the Next !ove.
Nobody who knows General Raum will
credit him with any lack of personal cour
age, and the manner in which Euloe put
the last question to him yesterday might
well have caused him to be the aggressor.
"For the last time," cried Enloe, "I ask
you; did you or did you not send f 15 to At
torney Ford?" But he replied quite calm
ly, though emphatically, "1 did not." And
then the outbreak took place. The affair
created considerable gossip and specula
tion at both ends of the Capitol, and the
question now is, "What will they do nextf"
WILL NOT LET THE MATTER DROP.
Washington Correspondents Will Investi
gate Ex-Clerk Yonng.
Washington, April 2T. The newspa
per correspondents in Washington have
decided not to allow the case of Mr. James
R. Young to drop. His dismissal from
the office of executive clerk of the senate
on the alleged ground that he betrayed the
secret of the executive session is an old
story now, but there has been much indig
nation expressed at this action of the sen
ate, both in newspaper circles and else
where, and in order to ascertain the truth
or falsity of the charges a number of cor
respondents have addressed a communica
tion to the standing committee of corre
spondents in charge of the press galleries
of the senate and bouse requesting an in
vestigation of Young's case.'
Must Be Reputable Men.
The communication says: "As the rules
governing the press galleries provide
that the occupants- of the gal
leries shall be correspondents of
reputable; standing in their busi
ness, and' as the committee of correspon
dents are made the judges of qualifications
of persons authorized to enjoy the privi
leges of the galleries, the attention of the
committee is respectf ully requested to the
following correspondence: Here follows
copies of the letter of Mr. Young to Sena
tor Cameron refusing to resign his office
under charges, and denying the responsi
bility lor the betrayal of executive secrets
and requesting an investigation, and the
letter from General McCook, secretary of
the senate, informing Young of bis re
moval. The Senate Says Young Is Mot.
"As the name of James K. Young is
mpon the list of correspondents approved
as reputable by the standing committee
the committee is respectfully requested to
make an inquiry into the implied charges
against Mr. Young in such a manner and
to such extent as the circumstances may
appear to justify or require, and to take
such action touching James K Young as to
them shall appear just to James R. Young
and the body of correspondents with
which he is associated by the approval of
the standing committee."
THAT MONETARY CONFERENCE.
ate asking tor information concerning an
international monetary conference. The
president's letter is addressed "To the Sen
ate," and reads: "I have received the
resolution of the senate of April 23,
and in response thereto beg re
spectfully to inform the senate than in
my opinion it would not be compatible with
the public interest to lay before the senate
this time the information requested: but
(bat at the earliest moment after definite
information can properly be given all the
facts and any correspondence that may
take place will be submitted to congress.
Will Pounce on Opportunity.
"It may not be inappropriate, however,
to say here that believing that the fnll use
of silver as a coin metal upon an agreed
ratio by the great commercial nations of
Ihe world would very highly promote the
prosperity, of all their people, I have not
Vet any favorable opportunity pass for the
promotion of that most desirable result,
or if free international silver coinage is
not presently attainable then to secure the
largest practicable use of that metal."
Senate and House Proceedings.
Washington, April 27. It was a silver

international monetary conference, declin
ing at this time to give any information,
and that brought up the subject again.
Pacific railway discussion consumed the
remainder of the session.
The house took up the diplomatic and
tonsillar appropriation bill. The bill car
ries $l,rS4,925, being $553,541 less than the
estimates, a heavy cut in the diplomatic
force being made on the old argument that
the United states has no need for diplo
mats. The debate was still "on" at ad
journment. Hatch's Autl-Option Rill.
Washington, April 27. Hatch of Mis
souri is in receipt daily of numerous in

twine bill, he said, would, be called up
next week and as soon as it was disposed
of he would call up the optica. In case
the binding twine bill does not Come up he

DEMOCRATS OF ILLINOIS.
Aitgeld Has the Advantage In the Race
Springfield, Ills., April 27. The
crowds of politicians which thronged the
hotel lobbies Monday were reinforced yes
terday until they permeated thecity every
where. Last night the Chicago contin
gent got in, most of them full of Aitgeld
enthusiasm. Others from "Egypt" were
inclined to look coldly on tbe Windy
City man's ambition. But the gen
eral opinion is that Aitgeld bas the
delegates now if he can bold them. The
convention was called to order at 3 p. m.
today and will probably adjourn after
temporary organization until tomorrow
morning. It is stated that the Aitgeld
men will endeavor to have the state ticket
nominated before adjournment, leaving
only the resolutions to be acted upon to
morrow. A Letter from Palmer.
The other matter that engages the atten
tion of the delegates is the question of in
structions for Palmer. A telegram from
him yesterday to D. P. Phelps aaid regard
ing instructions: "Tbe convention has con
trol of the whole subject, and must do
what it thinks best. 1 have full confidence
in your judgment." A letter from Palmer
was made public later which says: "I am
prepared to say that I hope there will be
no antagouisn) to Mr. Cleveland.
1 have su-adily acu-d upon the
idea that Mr. Cleveland is logic
ally the proper candidate to be nominated
My friends will have sufficient
strength in the convention to put tbe reso
lutions which will refer to Mr. Cleveland
and to me in language that will satisfy
them and that will not allow those op
posed to me to place cs in a false posit ion."
There is hardly a doubt that the conven
tion will iustruct for Palmer.

will urge .upon these leaders of the gov
ernment the necessity of promoting an in--ternational
agreement among the chief
commercial nations for. the unrestricted"
coinage of silver and gold at a common .
Think Education Is Needed.
The deputation will emphasize the losses
and hindrances to trade caused by the ex-'
isting liability to violent fluctuations of '
value, uncertainties of exchange with
silver countries, etc. It will be argued ' -that
even if, such an international agree-
ment is not , Immediately obtainable tbe '.
negotiations thereanent may be made of
great educational value in opening the
eyes of statesmen and the people to tbe
need of some step in that direction.
