Thlnse of rntercet In nntl Outside of (he IIuIIh ot Couffrrm, WAsnisnTov. .Tuno 19. Rogor 0. Mills is ln to.lcated with joy to-night, claiming that ho gained a groat victory over his enemv, Bpeakor lleod, In the Houso to-day. Senator Catllslo and othor strong Democrats do not agree with Mr. Mills. They snid in conversation to-night thnt the action ot tho Houso in striking out the prenmblo to Mr. Mills's resolution, clinrgiug thnt the Sneaker's action wan unparliamen tary, nulltllod the attempted robuko. Tho ' general opinion oulsldo of the House nnd ! Bonnie is thnt Mr. Hoed lecolvod n censure and many Ilopubllcans who have chafed for many months nt his dictatorship nro doing what they can to sprenil tnls foellng. It Is tho Ilrst time slnoe he bognn his dictatorship ns Speaker thnt his party has failed to stand by hlra por-lstontly nt a crlticnl moment, nnd tho men wiio tuno talked with him this evening sny that ho is severe in his criticism, although ho regards tho dofent ot tho Mills preamble us a victory. Tho Jlepubllcan inomborB, ns a rulo, do not bellovo that to-day s voto can bo regarded na a personal affront to the Bponkor in any senso. Tho Domocrnts, however, are overjoyed at tho nont wny In which they turnod tho tnblcs on Mr. Hood, and are predicting that tbeoffectof thoiriictlou will bo to woaken tho Hpoakor'sinlluonco over tho Houso to such an oxtcnt that ho will not bo ablo to carry through the f-evoral partisan measures which ho has mapped out lor tbe future. Foi tho ilrst tlmo this t-cssion tho Domocrnts had entire control of their own inomborB. Thoy libtoned with grent respect to the Ingen ious Btntement of tho Hpeukor. in which ho managed, with bis usual adroitness and ap parent frankness, to point out that he had dono only what ho should bnve dono under tho rules, but thor will not ndmlt that tho Hpeakor was sincere either in life statement or in his reference of tlio bill to tho committoo. Tho Democrats claim that tho Hpcnkor playod a trick In tho Ilrst placo, and then attempted to conceal thoevldenco of It by Instructing tho clork to road only aportlnnof tho journal. The Democrats heard Inst night of tho Speaker's nctioii and Bent out notices for a consultation this morning, nt which the very clotor pio grammo was arranged that ended In Mr. Heed's pnrtlnl dlscomilturo. Now thnt thoy have passed the resolution stntlng thnt whnt actually did take, placo did not take place, they are nt a loss as to what their future courso will bo. There are nil sorts of opIiilonB as to tho pnr liamentari status if tho bill as a result of tho adoption of Mr. Mllls'n omnsculated resolu tion. Bponkor Hoed claims thnt the ofToet of tlio resolution is to rescind tho ordor sending tho bill to tho Colnngo Committee. Journal Clork Harry II. Smith, probnbly tho best posted parliamentarian In Washington, also holds this vlow, and Bays that thore must now bo n, big fight to determine what shall be dono with tbe bill. Ilopresontntlve Lodge, Ctinlrraan of tho Com mltteo on tho Kloctlonof President, VIco-Irosl-dont, nnd llonresontatlvos In Congress, to-day submitted .the report of tho Committoo on the I'odernl J. lection bill, druftod In pursuance of tho instructions of tho Itepublicnn caucus. Tho report Ilrst takes up tho question as to the power of Congress to onact euch legislation. Tho language of section 1, article l.of the Con stitution, declaring thut Congress may, ut nny time, by law, make or ultor regulations witn regard to tho elections of HepresoiitntlveB In Congress, It snvH Is so plain that It would boom almost BuperlluoiiB to enter Into nrgumont or dlsousslon as to its moaning. If words moan anything, tlicso words moau that tho power of Congress ovor tho conduct ol elootlons of mem bers of tlio Iloubolsabsolutonndcomploto. As to tlio oxpedlency nnd need of such a measure as this tho committoo do not foel that It Is noe ossary to enter Into it detailed nrgumont. Thoy conceive thnt.the luct thut In ninny districts of tho country oloctions nro tainted nnd their re sults pen orted by fraud, violence, or eorrup tlon. Is too woll known to roijulro in a report nn elaborntlon of tho evidence. They beliovo It to bo also welt known thnt whether fraud, vio ienco. and corruption exlat to tho degree which Is generally supposed or not. thoro can be no doubt that such is tho popular belief, and that popular confidence which Is tho only gunrati toooftlio poaceful occeptoncoof tho voidlct of iJoMll0t,';ox. hnsbeonsiirliiusly Impaired In regard to Congreeslonnl o octlons In mnny dU- tr,1.ciS"it,,. l" V" ,taXu- Tll evidence- on theso points, which has acoumulntod during f!2y.iy0;,".H' ca" b0 mo.r.
