At r.:0H P. M. the Senate went into ex? ecutive session, and at (1 o'clock ad? journed: HOI'SR OF REPRESENTATIVES. WASHINGTON. June 2!).?The Hons - today disposed of a number of meas? ures and incidentally enjoved a spoerh from Mr. Allen, of Mississippi, which precipitated a political episode in which Mr. Orosvenor. of Ohio, and Mr. Bailey, of Texas, figured as the principals. Mr. Allen proposed that a company of Congressman be raised and go to Cuba After sanding the rndlan and sundry civil bills back to conference, consid? eration of bills from the military af? fairs committee, under the rule adopted yesterday, proceeded. Notable among the measures passed were those pro? viding for the enlistment of cooks In the army: providing for the protection of harbor defenses arid fortifications against wanton and malicious Injury, and giving the secretary of war discre? tion to permit any church or religions sect to erect its house of worship upon the West Point military reserva? tion. The last named bill precipitated considerable discussion. The bill In add cheese and canned corn to the ar? my ration occasioned prolonged debate, and it was during its consideration that Mr. Allen spoke, and the Grosvennr Balley incident look place. Mr. Allen, criticizing and replying to a feature of the Ohio member's Ohio convention speech, in which the latter referred to the minority as universally opposed to war measures. caused Mr. Orosvenor to answer, lie contended that his speech was Justified by the facts an.I proceedings, declared he was no more amenable to criticism than were Dem? ocratic authorities, in this connection he read from a Washington newspaper a Democratic organ, he said, an edi? torial in line with his convention speech. It contained a severe arraign? ment of Democratic leadership, and Mr. Orosvenor created a sensation by declaring that it was written by a Democratic member of the House From that assertion sprang the inci? dent during which demands for th* name of the Democrat were made and refused, anil during which Mr. Bailey and Mr. Orosvenor indulged in pointed personal colloquies. The Serial!- bill providing for a sec? ond assistant secretary of war was de? feated?50 to fi::. The House adjourned at r, o'clock, tic yeas and nays having been ordered upon an amendment offered by Mr. Otey. of Virginia, to the bill adding chewing and smoking tobacco to He? rat ion of soldiers.
