SCEIMMAGES ALL OVER THE FLOOR.
Saunderson OeU a Black Eye and Two or
Three Irish Leaders Show Mementoes ol
the Diversion Committee Chairman
Mellor Has to Call on Speaker Peel to
Calm the Belligerents Unprecedented
and Disgraceful Doings.
LONDON', .July 28. -On the government
programme 10 o'clock last evening was
the hour set for the closure of the debate
in committee on the home rule bill. The
parts of the bill left over for the discus
sions of the last week were the new finan
cial clauses, the schedules and the pre
amble. The gatllcries of the house were
filled with persons expectant of an exciting
scene at the close of the committee's la
bors." Few memler8 were absent from
the benches on the floor of the house.
The proceedings early in the evening were
tame enough. John Clancy, Parnellite,
moved an amendment to the effect that
the imperial government shoul ' guarantee
to Ireland .'.00,000 annually during the
provisional period of six years, but Glad
stone opposed it and a debate ensued lating
until fifteen minutes before closure was
to be applied.
Chamberlain Fires a Closing Broadside.
Then Joseph Chamberlain rose to deliver
the final broadside of the opposition. Aft
er a few scornful and biting wrds as to
the condduet of the members, he began
giving his opinion of the closure as applied
by the goverament. The members, he
said, were about to witness the last scene
In a discreditable farce. The debate on the
financial clauses h;ul been a mere sham.
The government had stood over friend and
foe alike ready to let fall the guillotine
without repard for justice or constitution
al riffht. The Irish membeis, as well as
the Unionists, were anxious to discuss at
length the important financial questions
presented by the new clauses, but such
discussion was to be cut short. The bill
had been changed in its most vital feat
ure ; still, no debate was regarded as
necessary, since whatever was altered the
bill was always found pe -feet by the adher
ents of the prime minister.
Ano:her Kind of C.ng Law.
Jeers from the Irish, cheers from the
Unionists, and counter cheers from the
Liberals interrupted Chamberlain at this
point. He waited two or three minutes
before the confusion abated sufficiently for
him to speak. He then proceeded thus:
"The prime minister calls 'black,' and his
adherents say it is good. The prime min
ister calls 'white,' and they say it is better.
Unionist laughter. It is always the voice
of God. Never, since the time of Herod,
lias there been such "
Chamberlain got no further. Immedi
ately after resuming his speech he .bad
been warned Ijy muttering from the Irish
benches that p storm was gathering. Ht
could hardly tave expected the suddenness
with which it broke, lor with Jirs half-finished
reference to Herod there came from
the Nationalists a loud roar.
Much More Effective Than Closnre.
Chamberlain tried to talk on. His voice
was inaudiible to the memliera on the
next bench. He turned toward the Na
tionalists, and shri'l yelis of execration
sounded above the uproar. T. P. O'Con
nor sprang to his feet and leaning toward
Chamberlain shouted "Judas:" so loudly
that the epithet could be heard through
out the house. The rest of the Irishmen
took up the cry and for half a minute
shouted "Judas' in chorus. Meantime
the clock struck 10. Chairman Mellor
tried to put the closure, but his voice
could not be heard amid the shouts of the
Irish and the Unionists. Then came a
scene unprecedented in parliamentary his
tory. Mellor gave the customary d:rec
tions to clear the house for a division. As
the disorder subsided preparations were
made to execute these directions.
Tories Refuse to ytiit the House.
The Conservatives, however, flatly re
fused to quit the house. Vicary Gibbs,
Gibson Howies aud William Hanlmry
shouted to the chairman that he must
first call O'Connor to order for having
called Chamberlain names. Mellor pro
tected that he had not hejird the epithet
iu question. Nobody told him what
O'Connor had said, so he sat helpless and
unenlightened before the house, while the
members crowded forward in excited
groups, shaking their fists and shouting
their demands. Gibbs, Bowles and Han
bury got together and to make themselves
heard shouted in chorus at Mellor: "Will
you direct that those words be taken
DONNYBROOK FAIR REHEARSED.
Scenes in the Commons That Never Had
Lord Randolph Churchill and Sir Ed
ward Clarke got hold of Gibbs and started
him for the front that- he might elucidate
the cause of the row to Mellor, who was
making strenuous but vaiu efiorts to learn
what the grievance of the trio was. Gibbs
tried to go forward, but in the general
jostling and shoutiug he was so pushed
about and confused that he gave up his
purpose and Mellor remained uninformed.
Meantime half of the Unionists had
climbed to the benches and were shout
ing, "Gag," "Gag!" Others were strugliug
in the aisles or between the benches with
Radical, Liberal, or Irish antagonists.
Curses, yells of pain and gross insults
were 'heard on every side. John Logan,
Liberal, ran down to the first opposition
bench and began upbraiding Edward Car
son, a Tory.
As he shook his fist under Carson's nose
George Wyndham and William Fisher
jumped to the assistance of their party
colleague, seised Logan by the neck,
threw him to the floor head first and then
bunted him under a bench. Somebody
smashed Tim Healcy's high hat down over
his eyes. Healy took off the hat and
sprang into the aisle in full fighting
posture, just as Hanbury, still shouting
that the chairman must name O'Connor,
was trying to get by. Hanbury was
knocked pver a bench by the fore of the
collision before Healy got in a blow. A
free fight then broke out at the top of the
gangway. The centre of it was. William
KeUmona, Farnelllte, wno naa taken ad
vantage of the general license to push
over Colonel Saunderbon, the champion of
the men of Ultster.
Saunderson was rescued and led the at
tack on the Parnellites. Blows were
struck right and left. Members fell an;
were picked up by their friends to flgbA
again. The whole space between the front
benches was filled with a struggling,
cursing mass of members, striking, claw
ing and upsetting each other. Manful ef
forts were made to separate the combat
ants. Both sergeants-at-arms forced their
way through the thick of the fight, but
as fast as one group was pacified another
came to blows. Eventually Gladstone
begged Edward Marjoribanks, a sturdy
Liberal, to do something to stop the fight
ing.. Marjoribanks dug his way through
the tangh d mass of belligerents and by
repeated appeals in the name of the pre
mier succeeded in stemming the conflict.
Colonel Saunderson emerged first from the
crowd of fighters.
He was holding a bunch of keys to his
black eye, Others followed in more or less
damaged condition. Just as peace was as
sured the door leading to the lobby opened
and Dr. Tanner, who had been outside and
had heard of the fight but a minute
before, came down the house, leaping over
benches in his haste to get into the melee.
The sergeant-at-arms caught him half way
from the door to the first bench, and re
strained him until he consented to keep
the peace. Balfour had been absent dur
ing the riot. Gladstone, sitting bolt up
right, had watched the scene with inflamed
face and an expression of sorrow, indigna
tion, and astonishment.
HAD TO SEND FOR PEEL.
The Speaker Hears the Cause of the Bow
from Both Sides.
Chairman Mellor sent for Speaker Peel
as soon as order was restored. When the
speaker entered several Conservatives rose
and pointing to Gladstone exclaimed:
"There sits the author of it all." While
Gladstone, Balfour and Mellor conferred
as to what should be done the combatants
were comparing notes. Not a few of them
showed the effects of rough handling.
Timothy Healy had received a hard blow
in the face ami one cheek was badly swol
len. William Redmond also had a bad
spot on his face. The hum of voices died
out as Speaker Peel, stern and dignified,
took the chair. A slight cheer was given
for him, and then Mellor, as chairman Of
the co:nmittee, reported to Peel, as speaker
of the house, what had occurred.
Mellor spoke in a low, sorrowful voice,
but the members had become so quiet that
not a word was inaudible. In response to
the speaker's request Gibbs then made his
complaint against O'Connor calling
Chamberlain "Judas." Hurntyand John
son, Conservatives, corroborated his state
ment. The speaker asked. O'Connor to
say, on his word of honor, whether or not
he used the word "Judas." Timothy
Healy, amid loud cries of order, interposed
to ask whether no attention would be paid
to the ref ..sal of members to enter the lob
bies fcr division. This, he said, was the
real reason why the speaker was sum
moned. Should it not, then, be considered
first - - -
The speaker at ones appealed to the
party leaders to tell him what had oc
curred. Cheers and calls for Gladstone
brought the premier to his feet. He said:
"I regret to say that neither my eyes nor
my ears enable me to give a very clear ac
count of the affair." He then gravely de
scribed the events as they had been re
ported to him by his lieutenants, and
eventually expressed the opinion that the
division should be taken before the "Judas"
incident should be considered. Balfour
recounted the version of the fight given
him by his colleagues, and at Healy's re
quest Mellor again told what he knew of
Speaker Peel then said that the epithet
"Judas" was the cause of the dis
order and that O'Connor t-hould with
draw the remark. O'Connor apologized
and the speaker said the apology was most
ample and he trus ed that the house
would proceed to business. He was pro
ceeding to speak further, but was drowned
in the storm of cheers. Colonel Saunder
son rose as soon as the cheering subsided.
Despite frequent interruptions and shouts
of "No" from the Irish he showed how Eu
gene Crane, anti-Parnellite, had without
provocation hit him iu th-- eye. The in
creasing confusion threatened a renewal
of the riot when Palfour and Timothy
Harrington. Parrellite, rose together. Bal
four yielded the floor and the Irish became
Amid laughter ami ironical cheers Har
ring ton said he took part iu the conflict
only to help the sergeaut-at-arnia to restore
order. He 6aid that he had seen Colonel
Saunderson strike several members before
Crane hit him. Thomas Condon, anti-Parnellite,
confirmed this statement. The
hubbub was renewed in the house. The
speaker requested the members to let the
subject drop, as it was futile to go back to
the disagreeable incidents of the disturb
ance. Mellor then resumed the chair and the
remaining clauses of the bill were adopted
in committee by a majority of about 33
on each clause. This completed the com
mittee stage of the bill and when the com
mittee rose and Chairman Mellor report
ed to Sneaker Peel, nrssidincr over ti
house, the home rule bill as amended in j
committee cheer after cheer was given
and all hats were waved for Gladstone by
the Liberals and IrUh, who were answered
by the Unionists with counter cheers.
The report stage was fixed for Aug. 7.
Tried to Rob a Young Woman.
Chicago, July 28. T. C. Woodin, who
has a first-class reputation with his em
ployers and also with every one who
knows him, is under $10,000 bonds on the
charge of attempting to rob Miss Belle
Richardson, daughter of J. R. Richardson,
owner of the Davenport Democrat. lie
met Miss Richardson on Drexel avenue
about 1 a. m., and snatched a diamond pin
from her throat. Her escort; Villiam
Ficklin, attacked Woodin with a cane
and captured him. The pin was recovered.
Woodin declares he knows nothing about
the matter except that he was knocked
down. The young people were returning
from the World's fair when the attempted
robbery took place.
It is reported that United states oeiia
tor A. C. Beckwitu, of Wyoming, is about
to resign in consequence of a quarrel with
Governor Osborne regarding federal appointments.
A LITTLE CROW" FROMMtlE SOU I'M
Showing That Financial Affairs There Ara
Better Than In the West.
r Baltimore, July 8. A summary of the
bank failures in the United States froni
May 1 to July 23 Inclusive, shows that 801
banking institution with a capital of $38,
951.C33 suspended. The Manufacturers
Record publishes a complete list of the
closed banks by states, also a table which
shows that five-sixths of these failures and
four-fifths of the capital involved, were In.
the western and Pacific states.
Only 10 per cent, of the failures and II
per cent, of the capital involved were in
the south. In Colorado alone the capital
involved was nearly $2,"00,000 greater th-. n
the aggregate capital of all the banks that
failed in the south. The number of fail
ures in the southern states was thirty
seven, involving 4,392,100; in the western
and Pacific states the number was 251, in
volving $31,258,933; and in the eastern and
northern states thirteej, with $2,000,000
The Death Machine Broke Down.
Auburn, N. Y., July CS. William F.
Taylor, who cut the throat of a fellow
convict, was executed by electricity in the
state prison here. He received a shock of
1,330 volts when the armature on the dy
namo burned out and it was impossible to
complete the killing for an hour. During
that time tbe prisoner lay in a state of un
consciousness similar to apoplexy and was
given chloroform and an injection of mor
phine to prevent his reviving, which he
certainly would have done. Meantime the
death chair was connected with the city
electric light plant and the execution was
