Jan. 22.?The sensa? tional episode at tile close of Che Cuban debate on Thursday, when Speaker Reed und Mr. 'Bailey, the "Dem icratic !? ider, in parliamentary language ques? tioned each ether's veracity, the on ? charging and the other resenting the imputation of bad faith, had its sequel in the House today. On a quenion of personal privilege Mr. Bailey secured the floor. He said he would not revive the con? troversy for 'the purpose of sustaining himself or showing thlat his adversary was wrong, as explanations in such cases did but little good, usually leav? ing the partisans ,.f each only the more firmly convinced of the correctness of the position of his side. But. said he. an examination .if the record showed that there was a.n agreement that there should be a yea and nay vote on the motion to recommit so explicit and dis? tinct-that he fell it 'his duty to call at to the attention of the country. He quoted .Mr. iHitt's last remark: "And it is understood. Mr. Chairman, that at 4 o'clock tomorow there shall be but one yea and nay vote, that on .1 motion to recommit." Tito Democrats broke -fort-h in applause. "That was precisely my statement." continued. ..Mr. Bailey. "I do not desire to impute mo'lives other than honorable ones to anyone, for I am slow to charge falsehood or unfair dealing, but I do af? firm that there has been either a mis? understanding or a mis-statement." He was met by Mr. Hitt, chairman of the foreign affairs committee. General Hen? derson, of Iowa, one of the floor leaders of the maj ir ty, and al-o by 'the Speaker with the argument that no agreement, such as alleged, even if made, which tiny denied, could have .waived the rules ,.f the 'House and that any agree? ment for a vote ?.n a motion necessarily assumed that the .motion would be in oidcr under the rules. This closed the incident. While the language used to day was strong, there was no'display ..f temper, and no excitement was occas? ioned, although the statements and counter statements were enthusiasti? cally applauded by the respective sides. .Mr. Hitt. chairman of the foreign af? fairs committee, submitted a privileged report from his committee recommend? ing the passage of a resolution of in? quiry, requesting the Stale Department, if not incompatible with the public in? terest, to transmit to the House all in formation in its possession relative to the military execution of Colonel Ruiz, a Spanish envoy t.? the insurgent camp of Ar.anjuez. The resolution was adopted without division. passed before the tilt between the gi? ants, and the remainder of the day was devoted to general debate on the In? dian appropriation bill. That the Cu? ban question is still uppermost in the minds of the members was evidenced during the debate, much of which was devoted to it. Mr. Cummings, of New York, made a particularly eloquent speech on the spirit of seventy-six, tumultuous applause of the IP.use. The 'House at 5 o'clock adjourned. SENATE. ? WASHINGTON. Jean.22.?Two amend? ments wore eiffeed in the House today to the Teller resolution, one by Mr. Nel? son, of Minnesota, declaring it to he 'the duty of the government under ex- j taring lows to maintain the parity in value of its gold and silver money, and ""the other by 'Mr. Spooner, of Wiscon? sin, substituting for the Teller resolu? tion a. declaration that It is the financial policy of'the United Statee to maintain the existing gold standard until an in? ternational agreement with the leading commercial nations of the world for the free'coinage of silver shall be re-ached. There' was no debate upon either amendment, both being proposed after '.Mr. Stewat't. of (Nevada, had addressed the Senate for an hour and a half on the resolution. Mr. Stewart began his argument by stating that the disregard of the res? olution which is already a law of the (United States, hud brought many ca? lamities upon the land, and that the re? sults of such disregard had -been disas? trous and lamentable. He attributed the panic of IS93 directly to the disre? gard of the law. .Mr.Stewart maintained that the law iwas mandatory upon the Secretary of the treasury to redeem bonds in silver. Mr. Stewart declared that apologists of the administration advanced as their only argument in favor of the govern? ment's position that it was the estab? lished policy of the United States to maintain gold and silver at a parity with each other, as the law provides. "Such an argument," said IMr. Stew? art, "is an insult to the common sense of the American people." "The plain fact is." declared the Ne? vada Senator, "that the executive de? partment of this government has no't in twenty years been guilty of a more evident violation of the law than is lt<' refusal to pay the government's obli Referring further along the sole of the $2<jS,000.000 of b inds by the adminis? tration of Mr. Cleveland, Mr. Stewart declared that ir, the sale of those bonds there had been a "steal" of $30,000,000 with the connivance of the executive. The Senator denounced it as a shnmr that no adequate investigation of the "steal" had ever been made by Con? gress. Mr. Stewart said that he had great respect for Mr. Cage, the secretary of the treasury, as he had the distinction, at least, of being honest in the expres? sion of Iiis opinion. He thought that if Mr. Gage were put out of the cabinet it would be for telling the truth, as .he had evidently committed no other of? fense. The Senate devoted an hour to the consideration of bills on the calendar and shortly after 3 o'clock went into executive session. At 5 P. M. the Sen? ate adjourned. ~. WASHINGTON. Jan. 22.?The Senate spent two hours in executive session today in discussing the nomination of General James L..ngstreet to be com imlseioner of railroads, which nomiha cause of the objection male then by Senator Vest, who today opposed con? firmation in a sharp and vigorous speech. Tie was foil..wed on '.he same side of the argument by Senators Dan? iel, 'Berry and Caffery. The opposition was base?d upm the general ground of General Longstreel's connection with the Keliosg-Warmouth faction in politics in Louisiana :n the C.ift'ry was especially zealous in bis opposition, saying that General Lcng st!?,et h3d in those- days antagonized tiit best interests of his slate and that for this reason he was now opposed to him. He held that the General's posi? tion at that time indicated a want of Judgment which would render hiin inca? pable of filling so important a position as that of railroad commissioner. Senator Daniel, while coinciding with ?these views, also expressed opposition to General Longstreet because of his criticism of General Lee in his oook en the war. He did not go in'.-> details, but said that he co-uld not, in hi.-* capacity as an advisor to 'the President in the matter of the appointment, consent to ?ach a selection as th's and that he must utter his dissent on this as well as on other accounts. Those objections j were replied to by Sei&ors Hoar, Chandler a ad Hawley (Republicans), Turner (Populist), ?nd l?r.'il l.Demo crat). Trie Republican Senators enar iclerized the opposition as a course which looked very muc:i like the waiv? ing of the "bloody shirt." Senator Ba? con said that while a Democrat and a Southern man he coujd not see his way clear to oppose Gen. Longstreet's con? tinuation. While it was true that Oen. Longs'treet had identified himself w.th the Republican inirty of the war, he ?l id. Senat >r Ba< :i said, be.m a gallint Confederate offlcer.and Was on this ae :ount well regarded in the "South. Sen? ator Bacon aiso expressed the opinion that it. was time that disagreements wJtich succeeded the war and'the fric? tion which resulted therefrom, should During the discussion there was some reference 'to the fitness of the general ro the ofllce and the declaration was made that he was not competent for the performance of iU duties. Senator White brought out the fact that the general was 7? years of age. The vote for confirmation was 33 to 10. MARYLAND SENATORSHIP. MeComas ?Inns Two Votes. His Friends Getting Confident. (By Telegraph.) ANNAPOLIS. MD.. Jan. 22.?The Maryland Legislature, in j.iint session, today took another b ill,it for a United States Senator, which resulted as fol McComas, Ifi: Shaw, IG; Findlay, 3: Shryock, a: Gorman, 4'i. Total, 113. The effect of this ballot was to inspire tlir- most hopeful feeling iti 'the minds of the followers of Judge MeComas. Judge 'MeComas sained two votes over yesterday, ex-Congresman Findlay gained one, ami all threa came from the ranks of M\ijor Shaw. This fact, coupled with the provailint belief that the influence of the leader.; ? if the national Republican party is be? ing orough'l to bear to force a speedy settlement ..f the conte.-t, leads to the belief that the end is not far off. The" .\ii i "onus men claim that their candi? date will be elei ted Tuesday of next iveek. They claim to have seven more votes well in hand, which will be cast on Tuesday, if not on Monday. When these votes rome over, it is he lieved by tin- IMoComas men that the uior.il effect will lie sufficient to stam? pede enough of the "eleven" from Bal? timore city to elect MeComas. -Senator Norman 13. Scott, who is au? thorized to call a caucus whenever he sees Hi. announced today thai he would probably rail it for Monday night. DR. TALMATDGE 'MARRIED. The Eminent Divine .Wins Hia Third Wife.

TheTruopit Summoned. (By Telegraph.) PAIEiIS, Jan. 22.?The Chamber ofD-.p. ut'i- s was thronged today and there was great excitement when ex-Minister Ca vaigr.ac ie|peaied the inU nellation of the government on the subject c*f Drey? fus, of which he had previously notified ti- ? minister. He affirmed' the existence of the r;port of Oaptain Lebrun-Tte ;.aud. containing the confession ofDrey. fus. whose gui:t. he added, was thus es? tablished and 'blamed -the government's siiencr, which the speaker claimed' per? mitted criticism of an affair legally de? nied. M. Co vaign&e asked the governm-rnt tfurnish a clear explanation of the sit? uation. The premi' r, 'M. Meline. in re? ply said he could' not communicate tlw contents of Captain Lerrrun-Renaud's re. >rt. The government did not think right to publish it, because the min? isters thought a parliamentary discus si .1 v. -u.d affect the judicial character ?f the win tie affair, and once the dis u si n was opened it could' not be : - ?!. The ip-iem-ler said that the present campaign in regard to Dreyfus was de? pot able. A great writer had' used his pen to dishonor tlv- army (prolonged ippi-iuse an 1 violent prettst). Regarding the street disturbances, the premier said the governm- nt would know how to speedily queil them an-i re-establish order. ?"["he governm- nt now needs." the pre Tier seid, "that the country should be info: med that the chamber has sup? port' d the ministers."

"You are unquestionably in the ray of the Dreyfus syndicate." To this iM. Jar ires shouted flercv ly in reply, but he was unable to make himself heard. In the me.mwhdle M. Doviile was trying to throw an ink-stand at the head of M. iDebornls, 1>ut was restrained by the deputies around him. SeveraM persons in the press galleries exohangpd blows during the uproar and t'-.e people 'in the public galleries cllmib ?3 up m th- seats, shouting eneoutage mcnt or alms, at the deputies. There is much talk of a duel between M. iDebornis and M. Jaures. 'but t'he friends of the latter decl?re that h-- will not fig! t. The 'president of the chamber. IVI. Biisson, being powerless to restore or? der, left th- ' hair, saying. "I am going to consult the iirocurateur general." A if 'w minutes later order was given to clear the tribune, amidst the great? est excitement among the deputies and journalists, who were threatening and justing <aeh other and also coming to blows. It was asserted that M. Debor r.is hn i accused M. Jaures of being paii by the "Dreyfus syndicate." After hh- -attack.made upon him. M. Jaures was the objectl of an ovation upon the part of the socialist deputies. When the order was given to clear the tribune th reporters were invited to re tire, but before so doing several of them rra ie a -demonstration In favor .of M.

The newspaper nv n and the public, pouring into the lobbies of the House, found them occupied by armed troops, that haii been summoned when the dis? turbances began. On learning this, many of the deputies protested, andi the soldiers were 'withdrawn. The officers of the House, under the presidency of M. Brlsson, retired to consult as to whether it was necessary to inform the public pros-cutor of the episiJe, while at M. Brl.^son's request the various groups of the Cihamfber held caucuses in order to consider the advisability of re? suming the sifting. A majority feared a renewal a the disorders and M. -Brls? son assumed the responsibility of decid? ing not to resume the sitting. The spectators, who hud in the mean? while assembled in c-xclted groups out? side the Pallas Bourbon (otherwise the chamber of deputies), were calmed by the announcement off the decision.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY (Continued frooi First Page.> brokers' stores shall be closed-from 7 P. -M. to T A. M., and also that every person who puts out a pawn brokers' sign shall pay the license required of a pawn broker. It Is claimed that under the existing law a person may evade the payment of the $400 license tax-re? quired of those who do the business of a.pawn broker. The bill has been reported favorably and will come up in a day or two. The object in requiring all to close at 7 o'cli>ck is to protect those whose prop? erty may be stolen, and to protect the pawn broker. Stealing is done usually at night, and the theief generally goes direct to the pawn broker to get money on his goods. When they are discov? ered as stolen goods the pawn broker has to give them up, and loses whatever he has loaned on the goods. Such a law is on the statute books of several other states. The House committee on Chesapeake and Its Tributaries, met last night to consider the several oyster bills that have been introduced in the General Assembly. Announcement was made of the passage by the Senate of the He Cato bill creating a State board of -fish Senator LeCato was present and made a brief talk for bis bill, and 'Mr. Craig spoke for his measure. It was finally decided to postpone ac? tion on the LeCato, Craig and Bland ?bills until Monday morning at 10 o'clock.
