<By Telegraph.)
CWASHINOTON. 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

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.

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?

?Si. iDebornls, conservative, accused M.
Jaures of being "the spokesman of the
Dreyfus syndicate" to which 'Mr. Jau?
res replied. "You are a coward."
During the altercation between M.
.T.iui. s and Debornis-, the ]att?r shouted
io Jaures. "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.

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.

Juuies, shouting "iBravo," "Viva Jau

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.

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.
