VIENNA. Nov. 24.—The members of the
lower house of the reicbsrath today ex
ce'ed themselves In producing the most
disgraceful scene ever witnessed in that
branch of parliament. The turbulence re
sulted from a motion that only one of a
number of similar petition? against the or
dinance making the Czech language co
ordinate with the German in Bohemia
should be read and printed. This order of
the government has been the basis of
Itiany uproarious scenes, which have been
described in these dispatches for a num
ber of weeks past, although the question
of renewing the compact between Austria
and Hungary, provisionally at leas>t. has
been mixed up In all the bitter feeling
manifested by the German and anti-Ger
man elements. The members of the l.eft
party protested uproariously today against
the motion referred to. stigmatising it as
"oppressive and Illegal." Finally the com
mittees of the lower house became so dis
orderly that the president of that body,
Dr Abrahamovlch. w:is once more coni
cf»mj>ellt<d to suspend the sitting, and he
soon afterward left the house.
The departure of the president was the
signal for a .«cfne of the wildest disorder.
Dr. Wolff, the German Nationalist leader,
clambered up into the president's tribune,
seised a heavy bell and swung It to and
fro. materially (rereading the disorder pre
vailing. The hell, however, was almost
Immediately wrenched from Dr. Wolff's
hand by Deputy Polock. While this Inci
dent was In progress challenges to fight
duels and showers of billingsgate and
other insults were exchanged on all sides,
until the Interior of the house iu every
way resembled an Inferno.
A number of young Czechs and Poles

attempted to tear Dr. Wolff down from
the pcsitJon which hi* occupied and they
lrt turn were attacked by a number of
leftists and a disgraceful scrimmage was
the remit. This was only the becinnlng of
th fg "tine. During the pr ilminary .-r-jf
fllnp mmc of th- young Caechs struck Dr.
Wolff and thin causal such an uproar that
a regu'ar pitched lart'e with fi-tieuft's fol

HAVANA, via Key West, Nov. 24.—After
the order had been issued for the release
of Gen. Ruia Rivera and Col. Baecall&o,
who were captured by fJen. Hernandez d>;
VaSesco last March, hut before they were
actually freed, both were conducted to the
palace, entering by a side door from Oriliy
street and going up a private stairway.
Marshal Bianco received them and pro
posed they should help to restore peace by
assisting in the establishment of au
tonomy.
They declined to accept the proposition.
He then requested them to make a formal
compromise and agree not to take up arms
against Spain again. This theV also re
fused. declaring on the contrary that when
actually free they would return to the In
surgent camp.
After this spirited reoly. they were
promptly returned to Cabanas fortress,
where .hey now remain prisoners of war.
Last Friday seventy of the Reconcentra
do.s. armed with machettes and revolvers,
left Guira M lana, for the country dis
tricts. They have not yet returned and it
is believed that they have joined the in
surgents' ranks.
Gen. Pando has sent into eastern Cuba
and to Callaguey commissioners to offer
money and office to such Insurgent leader#
as will accept autonomy.
Yesterday Gen. Parrado went to Mari
ana to meet a resident of Punta Brava
with a vi -w of commissioning him to per
suade such insurgents as are left in that
district to surrender. The governor of
Pu- rto Principe has also sent a commis
sioner to Insurgent Leader Reccio to bring
about his surrender.

CHICAGO, Nov, 24.—A decision in the
court martial of Capt. Leonard A. Lover-
ing, of the Fourth Infantry, will be
reached tomorrow. The court-martial to
night Closed the hearing of testimony cov
ering the Incidents of Private Hammond s
involuntary appearance before the sum
mary court at Fort Sheridan on October t.
There will be a protracted meeting tomor
row. as all the evidence taken during the
last two days' sessions must be read tor
the second time to the court in order to
followout the court-martial proceedings.
The entire morning session will neces
sarily be taken up by these last duties of
Judge Advocate Hunter and then the
twelve officers of the court will settle
down to a private discussion of their opin
ions of Capt. Lovt ring and his way of en
forcing military discipline. The general
opinion is that the verdict, if it is not for
acquittal, will be fo-~ a light penalty.
The chief witness of the day was Capt.
Lovcring. who admitted that the testimony
of previous witnesses, was substantially
correct. He claimed, however, that he did
not use excessive force with Hammond;
"only stirred him up with my foot and
sword," was the way he put it.
Col. Hall, of the Fortieth Infantry, de
clared that he approves of everything
Capt. Lovering had done. The arguments
for and against Lovcring were very brief,
and at their conclusion the court adjourned
for the day.
Post Surgeon Llppencott was the last
witness for the prosecution. IJe testified
to having been called upon to attend
llarpmo»d's wounds, which he said were
insignificant.
Attorney Blair, for Loverlng, presented
letters from various officers under whom
i/overing had served. They referred to the
defendant as an efficient officer and a good
soldier.
Col. Hall was then called.
"Whit report did Lovcring make to you
regarding this affair?" asked Attorney
Blair, of the commanding officer.
"He told me of Hammond's refusal to ap
rear before the court and of his direct dis
obedience of my orders and said he had
dragged him from the guardhouse with a
ro|>e."
"What comment did you make?"
"I commended him highly for his ac
tion."
Blair closed the questioning by asking
him if a report had been made to him that
I covering hud kicked and stabbed the pris
"Well, now that you recall It," said the
witness. "Capt. Levering did tell me he
had stirr-d il.mmond up a little, and I
.t so aji.ti( \. d that-"
Then Lov» ring took the stand in his own
behalf. He was very nervous and blun
dered several times while goinur through
the formaiiti sot the examination.
"Is the testimony thus before the court
correct?" asked his attorney.
"It is substantial!) correct," said Lever
ing: "only the amount of force I used has
been exaggerated. I stirred Hammond
with my sward and f <'t. I kicked him to
make htm op« n his eyes."
levering was ask- d why he had not re
ported the prison- r's refusal to go to the
court, instead of postponing acilon till he
received orders from Col. Hall.
"I »h>uld have been ashamed," said
lowering. "to have r ported to any person
that I had a'lowid a prisoner to get the
fc tter of me."
"Could you not have secured a wagon?"
"I w aid n>t have Jone so under any clr
cumstanccs It would have been a bad
example for the men."
Aft*-r Loverlng had told of his twenty
five years' service in the army without
ever having been court-martialed before,
he was excused and the taking of testi
mony wits over.

gressman Dlngley, pays editorially:
"Much as every true friend of Ameri
can Interests may deprecate It, It may
now be regarded as settled that the con
gressional campaign of next year must be
fought out on the lines of lsM. When a
state »ltke Kentucky turns its back on
Carlisle to follow Bryan, and a state like
Nebraska, which sees before its eyes In
every market, the refutation of the Bryan
theory that silver and wheat are linked
together by the Almighty, still persist in
bowing down to the silver Idol, it is us—
less for sound money men to lose sight
of the certainty that the 16 to 1 silver fal
lacy Is only scorched, not burned. Busi
ness men may as well prepare to make
this issue next year, when we hope It will
be settled forever."*
DEMOCRATS FIGHT H)R CONTROL.

NEW YORK, Nov. 24.—The fight for the

an open secret, however, that Mr. Hill
selected A. B. Parker for Judge of the court
of appeals, and that the state oomrnlttee in
the last campaign made no move without
his approval.
Mr. Crcker was asked if he recognized
the leadership of Mr. Hill.
"t re.-ognlxe Senator Murphy as the
leader In this s ate," he replied "He com
mands the respect of ill Democrats and
of his colleagues in the senate, and h» is
worthy of it. His judgment is excellent."

C. E. Jameson, alias George Smith,
formerly mayor of Montesano. is locked
up in the city jail on the charge of forging
Chehalis county warrants to the amount of
110,006. Junuson has confessed-his crime,
revealing a cleverly laid conspiracy to rob
the county, hut he absolutely refuses to
tell the n.;me of his confederate. Out of the
SIO,OOO worth of forged warrants Jameson
sold M.SOO to ex-Mayor Frank D. Rlnek
and Frank W. Raker, of the Seattle Hard-
ware Company.
Wednesday morning. November 17, the
Post-lntellißen. t r published a story from
Montesano to the effect that a forged
county warrant, drawn or. the geueral
fund, had been received for Investigation.
The warrant was made payable to D. C.
Lyon or order, issued April 1, lv<6. for the
sum of 17*40, and numbered .t.sss. Accord
ing to general appearances, the warrant
had Ix't ii signed by C. H. Sackett, who was
auditor at the time the warrant was al
leged to have been Issued.
An Investigation proved conclusively that
Mr. Saekett's name had been forg. <1 and
that the body of tho warrant had la-en
filled in by the same hand that did the
forgery. The treasurer's indorsement "Not
paid for lack of funds" was found to l»e
quite different from that of genuine war
rants. With the. warrant submitted was a
list of other warrants which the auditor
was requested to look up. Among the lot
was one warrant for over S4OO and the Post-
Intelligencer Montesano correspondent
learned that It had been in the possession,
since legally issued, of another person than
indicated in the list.
The discovery that forfid warrants were
In existence caused considerable excite
ment among the Chehalis county officials,
but until last evening there *v»re no spe
cial developments to throw any litjht on the
case.
Late last night the Pout-Intelligencer re
ceived a dispatch from its correspondent at
Montesano to the effect that Detective
Cudihee, of Seattle, had been in town in
vestigating the forgeries and that it was
positively known that C. K. Jameson,
formerly mayor of Monttaano, was locked
up In tho city Jail at Seattle as the king
pin forger, and that he had confessed. It
was also stated that the warrants had been
sold, originally, to Frank I>. Black and
Frank VV. Baker, both prominent men of
Seattle, and that eventually they were
turned over to Dexter llorton «• Co. Th. se
clues wi re followed out here with the fol
lowing result:
A week ago last Tuesday C. E. Jameson
enme to Seattle with worth of what
he alleged to be Chehalis county warrants,
which he had negotiated to Kll to ex-
Mayor Frank D. Black at So cents on the
dollar. The warrants were placed in Mr.
Black's hands and he took them to Dex
ter Horton & Co.'s bank. It was agreed
that Jameson was to cail the next after
noon ut :i o'clock and receive his money.
It appears that N. 11. Latimer, manager
of th« bank, while looking over the war
rants. Ucam- suspicious that something
was wrong. He immediately s» nt one of
the suspicious warrants to the auditor of
Chehalis county with 'h»- request that b"
investigate as to it* genuineness. A full
list of the other warrants was also ln
closed. In a short time after the warrant
reached Montesano word was received by
the bank that tht- warrant was a forgery.
With this condition of affairs staring the
proposed purchaser In the face, a tele
phone was sent to Ch'-f of folic-
Reed requ<-stlntt hitn to have a <iet<- !lvf
a; the bank when Mr. Jameson called to
r*n < Ive his money. Detective «*udlh» e waa
detailed to attend to the matter.
