ISSUE Of VERACITY IN THE HOUSE
Causes the Two Statesmen to Call Each
Other Pet Names, but No Blood Is
Spilled Johnson of Indiana Takes a Shy
at Breckinridge of Kentucky Without a
Breaking Out or Hostilities Lunatic
Visits the White House.
Washington, Sept. 29. There were two
Incidents of an exciting character in the
house but neither reached the climax of
open war.although the provocation on both
lides in one case was great and in the other
case a convenient failure to hear perhaps
prevented a serious row, for the remark
made by the aggressor was enough to
have "fired a southern heart" to white
heat. Johnson of Indiaca closed a hot
speech on the election law repeal bill with
ft somewhat sneering remark as to the
gentleman who was next to succeed Mm,
and who wa- Breckinridge of Kentucky.
Ilrecklnridge Ironically Pitiful.
Breckinridge began his remarks by a
reference to the scant courtesy accorded
him by the gentleman who had just fin
ished his remarks. He had a profound
pity for the heart that could dictate such
ft speech as the gentleman had made this
afternoon and with this he would dismiss
the gentlemen and his speech. Ap
plause. Johnson interrupting There are other
things the gentleman might like to dis
miss, but the people will not dismiss them.
Breckinridge 1 did not accurately hear
the remark, but it shows a want of court
esy in the gentleman to interrupt me
without permission. There is no inter
ruption I am not willing to accord to a
gentleman who understands the proprie
ties and decencies of parliamentary lan
guage. Applause. Bur. that, continued
Breckinridge, was all that he desired to
say on this point. J
The Fitlilitn-Momc Outbreak.
The other trouble was between Fithian
and Morse. Fithian had objected Wednes
day to the inclusion in Morse's remarks as
printed the Record of certain cMnnincs
from newspapers. As soon as the house
was ready for business Morse suggested
tfeat there was pp quorum present, bu tstat
6d that he would withdraw his suggestion
addreSS the hollSP Prmonf n-uj
and Morse merely said that he. regretted
mac mere was a member in tne bouse who
would object to his request to have certain
newspaper clippings published in the Rec
ord. That member was the gentleman
irom Illinois (nthian). He had never
been an obstructionist and he would not
be one now.
Morse Gives Tith!nn th. I I.
Fithian said that he had objected ta hav
ing me matter published because be had
been informed that it contained a per
sonal attack on the commissioner of pen
sions. On the day that he had objected
the gentleman had come to him and had

Then the gentlemen had inquired
whether he whs interested in the printing
bill. He had replied that lie was paying
attention to it.

Fithian If the gentleman denies the
statement I will produce a member of this
house who will corroborate me. My
colleague, Mr. Goldzier, heard the conver

ment had a color of truth. Laughter.
But the construction he put on the con

DEBATES IN THE TWO HOUSES.
Synapses of Speeches on the Two Repeal
When Johnson rose in the house t,n At
tack the election law repeal bill the ste
nographers sighed, because it is almut
easy to report a cyclone ns Johnson.
Neither is it any use to try to interrupt
him; he drives right over evervbodv untl
all the would-be interrupter can do is to
bu, uow ii. xie stigmatized tne bill as the
climax of all that was atrocious and vi
cious in legislation. It repealed all that
was near and dear to the American heart.
It was the unfortunate child nf tn.
consniracv that was nrinrtvri in tni.i ;
norance of the fundamental principles
upon wuicu mis government was con
structed. Johnson went nn in n li n m nmi. . ......
to ridicule the Democratic claim that
these laws were unconstitutional, and
raised a laugh bv characterizing l.otir-.
ically) Bailey of Texas as the proper sue-
- . T 1 . . -
L-esHur ui jjnuiei vveoster. Then, having
paid further respects to the Democratic
party, he referred to that party as a party
which Gold Almighty, in His inscrutable
providence, had permitted to live but hrl
never nermitted to work. ft
The pending measure was the climax of
ireuiuviBiiutniiie; 11, was me capstone to
the lofty tower of Democratic infamy.
Applause. A great wrong was being
here inflicted. A hlow
at the purity of the ballot. The people
wouiu assert meuueives, ana would take
hold with irresistible force of the Demo
cratic party and hurl it from power. Ap.
Black of Illinois made a constitutional
argument for repeal. If there had been a
time when these laws were of use the time
for that use had gone. What was the
right and wise thing to do now The

of violence. hat the patriot dreaded
was the corruption of the individual voter.
What was needed was not the preven
tion of violence in far-away places, but the
prevention of corruption in places near
by. What v. as needed was the protection
of the ballot-box against political ignor
ance. He said that when Illinois was sure Re
publican only $1,105 was expended for
deputy marshals in the state. When it
turned out tkat it was a doubtful state
the sum rose to 12,000. To think that in
the city of Chicago it was necessary to
have a battalion of 2,400 bummers to keep
order on election day. What had been
the result of this action? It was
that Chicago had given 35,000 Democratic
majority. Democratic applause.
Cannon inquired whether the gentleman
tlaimed that there had not been a fair
election held in Chicago last fall. "No"
was Black's response.
Cannon further inquired whether the
gentleman knew any man in Chicago who
had been oppressed by these laws.
Black replied that every man who
coerced a citizen of the United States was
opressing that citizen.
Breckinridge also made a constitutional
argument against the bill, but Republic
ans smiled wben he said that he hoped
to see the disintegration of the Republican
party, which was absolutely necessary for
the prosperity of the country. He was
not speaking as a partisan. He was speak
ing as a citizen. Then returning to the
bill he said it was not possible to put pow
er into the hands of a party without that
party using it for party advantage, which
was one great objection to such legisla
tion as the election laws. It had been said
by the opponents of the pending bill that
it was a conspiracy. It was a conspiracy,
but it was a conspiracy of a majority of
the people against the election laws.
The senate debate was of the same old
monotonous sort, except at the beginning
when Hoar called attention to the fact
that statement in a speech in the house
years ago of Representative Hooper, of
Massachusetts, had been made just the
reverse of what it was by the dropping of
two words from the report of his speech
as recorded officially. Who dropped the
words is not known. It was the old story
that Seyd had bought the congress of the
United States for $500,(XK) to pass the silver
demonetization act. The fctnrTr irno
Seyd a prominent French financier was
in tins country at tne time.
Recently Seyd's son published a letter
denying tbat his father had been in this
couutry since 18-VJ. In order to bolster up
t he original story somebody quoted Hooper
in lfc73 as referring to Mr. Seyd as "now
here," and referred to the Congressional
Record for proof. Hoar produced the Rec
ord in the senate showing that the words
"now here" were not in the speech, having
been fraudulently interpolated.
Peffer began a speech against time on
I he silver question, and in the course of it
said that if Voorhees would agree to ac
cept a "compromise" the restoration of
free silver coinage at 16 to 1 no senator
on his side would care to say another
word. He was still speaking when the
Benate closed business for the day.
LUNATIC AT THE WHITE HOUSE.
He Oi-es Two Officers a Tnssle Before Be

Washington-, Sept. 29. A white man
about 2S years of age, in some unexplained
way, found his way into the lowerregions
of the White House, and meeting the col
ored cook said: "I want to see father."
"Who is your father?" the cook asked
him. "Mr. Cleveland, of course," was
Just then Policeman Heller appeared
upon the scene and saw at a glance that
the man was not altogether right, and bo
he dealt with him accordingly.
"Your father is out in the garden," he
told the mysterious visitor. "Come with
me and we will find him." Arm in arm
they started toward the door, the intruder
thinking he was going to meet the presi
dent, but the officer knew that he would
land him in the watch box.
On their way to the box, the officer asked
the man: "What did you want in the
White House?" "I wanted that chair,"
was his response.
"What chair?" "The president's chair."
"Don't you thiDk the president fills it
satisfactorily?" "No, I don't," was his
reply, "and I intend to get it by fair means
or foul. Give us each a pistol and 1 11 show
you who will get it quick."
When they got to watchbox they found
Policeman liable on duty.
Before the officers knew what was going
on the prisoner grabbed the policeman's
black-jack from his pocket, evidently
thinking be was going to get a pigtol. He
tried to use the club on the officer, but
both officers grabbed him, and the strug
gle lasted but a few minutes before the
man was overpowered. The crank was
conveyed to the police station, whete be

In the house Fithian and Morse called
each other liars and there certainly was a
lie out somewhere but no blood was
shed. Then Johnson made an odious ref
erence to Breckinridge's trouble with
Miss Pollard, which Breckinridge passed
by . with a retort imputing lack
of gentlemanly courtesy to Johnson.
The two named and Black of
Illinois spoke on the election law repeal
bill. The house passed a bill disqualify
ing land registers and receivers from de
termining cases in which they are inter
ested. Appropriations Were Too Scanty.
