Washington, P. C., Jan. 20 ?If Mr. Mi'le, of Texas, baa at any time considered himself seriously in tbe race for the Speakership of the next Houeo, ho has certainly no idea of that character now. Toe exhibition of temper which he displayed on the floor to-day has, in the minds of all candid Democrats, dlsqualijied him from presiding over the Uoose. Bm tka teroner shown by the gentleman from Texas was not wide of the average spirit being displayed by ths Democrats now-a-dajo. They ore determined to prevent legislation in the House till some action is taken upon tbe Election hill by the St-nate, as they want to hold the right of way over the heeds of the Republicans to prevent consideration of the Election bill should it pass the Senate. PANDEMONIUM LET LOOSE.. The scene for ?ome minutes in the House to-day was one of pandemonium and should be a di't^rsco to tbe leaders of it. The Democrats have been fighting to kill time every day for more than a week by antagonizing the approval of the Journal each day, and when (he Speaker ruled the procedure out of order Mr. Mills became frantic. He wildly sawed the air and screamed epithets at the top of his voice. The Sergeant-atArms una called upon to suppress him. Some of his followers were also wild with excitement and covered themselves with disgrace.

The sharp trick on the part of tLc Democrats again defeated Republican ' aims in the Senate this afternon. The < Cloture resolution was taken up during i the morning hour and at two o'clock Mr. i Aldrich, who has ic in charge, attempted to have the Election ball laid aside for i the continuation of the debate on the i resolution. Mr. George, who had the i floor when the Sennto a-Jjourned yesterday, claimed tho right to continuo his t speech, and so tho resolution went ov- r, but later in the afternoon was brought i up again. It is the purpose of the Deni- i ocratic Senators to continue the debate I upon the Election bill to tho exclusion I 01 tho Cloture resolution, and by t'lis uieau'fl whipsaw both propositions. But I the Republicans will take the bit in their months after a few more days of I this kind of work and will pass the Cloture tesolution. Thla done, the Election bill can he brought to a vote and legislation will proceed in a business-like wav. A feiUtCUY bUENK. Th?

The clerk having concluded tho read* ingilr. Bland maue the point that the Journal had not been read in full and demanded that the description of the various executive communications, res* olutione, bills and petitions which ure referred under tho rules and not in open Bouse bo read. The Speaker directed tho clerk to road this portion of the Journal, which is ordinarily omitted. Thin was by far the .longest portion of the Journal and its reading was not completed until 1 o'clock. Then mibuM one of tbe wild,1jt1\wefl?f confusion that the House has at Mn daring tho present Congress.

The Speaker said that the demand had not been renewed after the reading of the completed Journal. Mr. McKinley corroborated the statement of the Sneaker. THIS 8tobm boosts. Mr. Mills tliea expressed hia wish to debate the question of approving the Journal, hut the Speaker declined to recognize him on the ground that the House wag dividing. Then tho stormcloud burst. With excited gestures Mr. Mills strode down the aisles and shaking his fist at tho Speaker, poured ont a volume ol denunciation, accusing him of practicing fraud upon the House. "You aro perpetrating a fraud upon the House," he thundered, "and you know it," and hia colleagues burst into a round of applause and cheero and gathered around the champion. But the Speaker was immovable, and amid the excitement requested those opposed to the approving of Ihe Journal to rise. The Clerk proceeded to call the rull. Mr. Mills poured out his denunciations. Again he accused the Upeaker of perpetrating a (road npon the House, and reternng to Mr. McKinley, said: "We did not expect the gentleman from Ohio to lend himself to aucb a proceeding. We rolled on the gentleman from Ohio, (or we believed him to bs an honorable iceotleman, and wo knew he (Indicating tho Speaker) was not." Mr, Perkins, of Kansas, (sarcastically) ?"And ho (Indicating Mills) is* gentleman." Mr. Alien, of Mississippi?"That is more than cut be said of some persons on the other aide." 4 hills oaowa cuiv. Then as the clerk went on monoton oualy calling the roll, Mr. Mills (Ignoring him) proceeded substantially as follows: "You do not dare to go before tbe country with anch a revolutionary measure as you are proposing to pass. We have aright under the rules todebaot the question of approving the Journal and you (addressing the Speaker) are denying that . right." (Democratic cheers.) Mr. Kerr, of Iowa.?"8uch proceedings aa this are treasonable, and they are headed by a man who helped treason before." Mr. Mills?"You are a traitor yourself to the constitution and laws. You are trying to surround the ballot box with bayonois and to deprive the people of tbeir right to representation." Then followed enthtfsiss.ic applause. " dosd1" Mr. Cutcheon, of Mlchlgsn. stood in the centre isle, and as Mr. Mills went on repeated with indignation and ~emphaaia the ono word, "Bosh I" Mr. Mills' reply to this exclamation was, "Bring in another resolution of censure then. By this time affairs had approached so near to a personal rupture between the gentlemen on tho opposing aides that the Speaker was obliged to call on tbe Sergeant at-Arms for assistance, and that officer induced Mr. Mills to take bis teat and the storm passed away for tbe time.

After Mr. Georgo had spoken for nearly throe hours and a hall, Mr. Butler (with a view to give blm a resting spell) asked him to yield tho floor, so that he (Mr. Butler) might send to the clerk's deBk and havoread Ibe chapter of the revised statutes relating to the subject of elections. Mr. George assented willingly to that i arrangement and after the Secretary had read for a few minutes, Mr. Eutltr , no iced tbat tbe charter which was being read was not tbe one bo meant, : and he eent for anothor volume and said i be would read tbe chapter hiniBelf Before ho had beptfn to read Mr. Morgan rose and said tbat ho now took tbe floor i on the Elections bill, but he was in- < formed by the Vice President that he ' bad the name of the Senator from Rhode Island (Mr. Aldricli) next on tbe I list to speak on tbe bill. Mr. Morgan i protested against tbat as a violation of the rule, and said that the cbair could I not make an agreement before hand to ' parcel out tbe floor. The Vice Presi- < dent's response to tbat was to annnunca that Mr. George qr*? entitled to the floor I and Mr, Edmunds injiata} on tho regular i order. ' Mr. George again offered to yield the floor to Mr. Bailer bat to that Mr. Hoar objected. After an interchange of parliamentary suggestion* between Mr. Butler and Mr. HdmvndB, Mr. Butler asked Mr. Goorgti if ho would permit him to read a few .vitions from the Eoyiaod Statutes. "If J.* agreeable," said Ifr. George, 'to the gentiC^"1 ? "> eontrol tfia faen?to; bntldo uotw::1- to b. guilty of anything like high treason. Mr. Butler took that answer for consent and said that be would proceed to read from the Revised Statu lea. He was Jtoppsd, however, bv an objection from Mr. Hoar and tbo Vica President sustained the objection. Mr. George then rwumed the floor, rad (picking up a pile of manuscript) jomnienced to read a dissertation upon J the origin and history of African slavery . In the United States. After ten minutes he complained of 1 being "very weary," and inquired ( whether be might ask the Senator from ( South Carolina to read the speech, or a part of it, for him, so that he might have ' a little rest. To that propoaition Mr. 1 Aldrich objected, and Mr. Georgo re- I samed the reading with the words, ' "Immediately after the discovery of i America," which cansed considerable langhter at tho idea of that there was so munh more to come. After another ten | minutes reading Mr. Aldrich asked Mr. | George if bo would yield to him for a ; motion to take up the resolution submitted by him on the 2Uth of December, , and "which' was under consideration 1 this morning." olnhit-o vnla?" niiartni) Mr lliu* V*W?H?V IHIV >|>aviivu (( George.

"Then," Mr. Aldrich proceeded, "I more that the Senate proceod to the consideration of the resolution." "Bat," said Mr. George, "I want to know what becomes of my right to the floor?" Mr. Butler also objected, and Mr. George again took the floor. He had hardly started again, when Mr. Aldrich once more asked whether he would yield the floor to him. aud ho was told that Mr. George would yield the fl )or with great pleasure. "Then I move," said Mr. AW rich a second time, "that the Senate do now proceed to tho consideration of the resolution submitted by me on the ?8tb of | December and which wa* under consideration during the morning hour." Mr. Mornau addressed the chair, but the Vice President, without recognizing Mr. Morgan, put tho question on Mr. AldricU'c motion. There was a response of ayes, foitovwj by one or two noes, and the Vice President 'said that the ayfiS appeared to have it.

"I addreaaed tbe chair very politely and respectfully," Mr. Morgan waa going on to aay, when Mr. Kdmunda broke in with an Inquiry oa to what tbe pending qneation waa. "The resolution pending ia," aald Mr. Aldrich, "I move that the Senate do now adjourn." At thia point tbe Vice Preaident recognized Mr. Kanaom, and aaked Mr. Aldrich if he withdrew the motion to adjourn. "I do not,'' aaid Mr. Aldrich, and thereupon the Vice Preaident put tbe question and at 0:15 declared tbe Senate adjourned till to-morrow at 10 a. m. After tbe Vice Preaident bad leit tbe hair, but while the Secretary (nil cterks were still at the desk, Ur. Ransom walked up to the desk and declared emphatically that the question on taking up the resolution had not been decided by the Senate and that the result of the vote had not been declared by the Vice President. Mr. Uoar and Mr. Aldricli were in tho group about tho clerk's desk, and argued that the resolution was formally and properly before the Senate. Mr. Hansom, however, was not satisfied and may bring up the question to-morrow on the adoption of the journal. John llnrriugtoti itouncml Again.

The lommittee reported adversely on the >111, which came up in the House to-day mil was defeated by a vote of 01 to 2.

Col. St. Hair thought Mineral county was not ' articularly entitled to unything Just 1 ow, and Gen. Watts insisted that the ecoiution should be adopted as offered. J be discussion was becoming quite ani- 1 natcd as to the met its ol Democrats of < iifferent sections, when Senator Camp- 1 ell started things in another direction ly asking if it was customary for the lenate to elect committee clerks?if tbe 'resident did not usually appoint them. 1 Is knew tbo President did when the 1 tepubUcans had control of Uio Senate. 1 Vote they afraid to trust this matter o the President?

Speakor Bannett is most enthusiastic in his expression regarding tho banqnet and West Virginia's exhibit at the World's Fair. Ho says: "West Virginia has the resources, and baa within her borders what tho rest o( tho world can't do without and must oome to ns (or.

The opinion o( Speaker fftmnett seems to be almost universal, bnt there is a di(Terence ol opinion as to wbat a liberal appropriation is. Senator Davis says all he has spoken to are disposed to be as liberal as possible, but Bome seem to tbink the flnanci a of the 8tate are not in such a oonuitiou as to warrant on appropriation ol $100, 000. He thinks that the Senate may agree to it, but the greatest trouble will probably be in the House which has quite a number ol (armer members who will likely tbink such an appropriation extravagant.

There seems to be considerable doubt at to Morris' anecesi, notwithstanding tbe fsot that Ogdin baa made no defense. Morris alleges twenty-two illegal Republican votes, but no frsnd, intimidation of voters or attempt at fraud is charged against Ogdin himself, either directly or indirectly. Republicans will takn tbe ground that a mviority of Hve should be u sacred as a majority of five thouaand, and that if it ia not In the hands of tbe Democratic Seqate such action will show that with them each cases are only to be judged according to party strength, not according to justice.
