WASHINGTON. A Lively DebatA Between Georgia Congressmen on the Cen sus Question. The Confirmation of Simmons, as Cen sus Supervisor of the First Dis trict, Developing a Fight Be tween the Regular Demo. orats and the Inde pendents. WARHINOrTON, Feb. .--The Democratic mem bere of the Henate Committee on the Census had a long private meeting to-day for the pur pose of conferring whh the members of the Georgia congressional delegation in reference to the contested nomination of Rev. T. J. 8im mons as census supervisor for the First Geor gia District. epresentative Felton,. who pro cured 81mmons's nominaltion, was not present. but his side of the controversy was earnestly supported by Representative Stephens and Henator Hill. while Senator Gordon and Repre sentative Hammond Insisted that the nomina tlion ought to be rejected. The latter gentle man opposed confirmation on the ground that Simmons is illiterate and wholly Incompetent to properly discharge the duties of the office. and that by his free use of the epithet. "corru pt secession traitors." etc.. lie has made himself a common slanderer of the great mass of the people of Georgia. Messrs. Hill and Stephens, on the other hand, contended that although Binimons's ortho graphy is by no means faultless, he i funite competent to sunervise the takirg of the o nsus; that he is recommended by good people and that the charges of slander are not of sufficient gravity to warrant his rejection. Geo. Gordon pointed out that 81mmons, In his autograph letter of apVllcation to the Presl dent for this anointment. said that he (tlm mons) wanted it because it wonuld give him the victory over corrupt seceOsson traitors. Gen. Gordon said that no enlluhtened Rnepb lican audienoe of the North would favor the ap polotment of a man who based his application for officoe upon such a ground. These remarks gave rise to an exceedingly spirited and. at times, very personal ,c lloquy between Mr. Stephens and Gen. Gordon as to the scope and purposes of the so-called "In dependent movement" In Georgia. It was also developed that Mr. Simmons recently tole graphed to ltepriseetattve Felton to aurse his nomination to be withdrawn, but, that Felton insisted upon its reomaining before the SRnate, and that the struggle in rogard( to It has now assumend a phake of contest hotwoen the regular D. mocretle organizition of Georgia and the friends of the Independents.
