mill Monty ( Dem., Mlm.), Mnator- Jj
elect from that state, and Congressman v
Hall (Dem- Mo.) bad a personal encounter
In the committee on naval af- P1
jaire to-day.
The details of the cause of the en- &
counter were hard to obtain. Mr. Hall, f<
when eeen immediately after the flght, w
wild he did not desire to make a state- jj1
ment. "It was a personal matter," said h
he. "and I do not desire to say anything.
I do not suppose Mr. Money a
either Hill care to make a statement
Mr. Wilson, a member of the sub-commit
tee, wan present."
Mesoenger McCloskey says the men *?
were talking loudly and that Mr. Hall
Fald: "I'll allow no man 10 can me a. ts\
liar," ot the (Same time striking Money
!n the face with his fist. Hill then
prabbed a large glass Ink well and ^
hurled It at Money. It struck him ?>e- h
hind the ear. cutting an ugly gaah. Vie <j
mer were then parted and Money was 8I
carried MeocIIng from th? room, while j]
Hall walked calmly along the corridor
to the house. a
Mr. Money was taken to the room of a
the committee on claims, where his *,
wound* were dressed by a physlcltn
who happened to be In the building. '
There wore two cuts, one Just back ot T!
the ear. about an inch long, and the "
oth^r further down the neck,both made "
probably, by the points of the Ink well. J
Mr. Money, like his adversary, said he J:
did noi desire to make a statement, A J
close friend of Mr. Money's, however, ?
who was on eye witness or me occurrence.
gave the following vfralon of the f
"Mr. Money was in the room." Mid
this gentleman, "looking over his mall
when Mr. Hall entered and began discussing
a bill before the committee relating
to the rank of naval surgeons. s
Mr. Money took part in the discussion,
and though his voice waa pitched aa it
usually Is in controversial tone, he waa g
in no wise excited. Mr. Money made a
statement that the surgeons were after
both rAnk and oommand. 'No/ he add- c
e-d. smilingly, '1 take that back; not n
command, but rank.' o
" 'Any man who says that,' said Mr.
Hall, angrily, 'says what Is not true.' ?
" "You are a d liar.* retorted Mr. B
Money, partly rising from his chair. t
"Mr. Money rose to his feet and Mr. *
Hall grabbed an ink well ajid hurled It r
nt him. The blow behind the ear staggered
him. Mr. Hall did not hit him n
with his fist. Mr. Money, though staggered,
ulsa clutched an ink well and let
it drive at Mr. Hall's head, but the ^
Missourlan dodged and the missile flew r
harmlessly by and struck the wall op- f

two men* Then mode for each other. :
Roth of them made notion* as If to f
draw their weapons. Mr. Wilson, of J
New York, a member of the naval com- *
xnlttee, who was present, with the mes- z
** nger and clerk, then rushed between J
the men and prevented further 1
trouble.** r
There were present In the committee c
room, In addition to the two combatants.
Commodore Flthian and Repre- 11
sentatives Mayer, of Louisiana, and I
Wilson, of New York, members of the *
committer. The altercation was over *
Mr. Wilson's bill for the reorganisation f
of the personnel of the navy. An anony- 1
raous circular against the bill figured In 3
the controversy. Mr. Wilson says that a
he was reading his mall and the convw,Mn"
r**r?irinat?J in in a sdsb- f
medio fashion by all about the table. I
He aaya according tp his recollection C
that the row followed a statement of (
Mr. Ball's to the effect that whoever <
made such statements as were made In . f
the circular made statements which I
were not true. Mr. Money thereupon, a
according to Mr. Wilson, looked up and
ftfttd: "Do you mean to say I am a s
liar?" a
Mr. Hall replied In a low tone. Mr. 1
Wilson says he does not know exactly I
what the reply was, but. thereupon, Mr. e
Money applied the epithet and the row
bepan. The Ink well thrown by Mr.
Money, he says, narrowly escaped Mr. g
Hall's head and passed over his shoulder.
When asked as to whether weapons
were drawn he refused to affirm or deny <

of Mr. Money'a c
Mr. Money was conveyed to his hotel s
by friend*. Mr. Hall remained at the h
capital. H* expressed regret for what I;
had occurred, but still declined to make h
a statement. 1

HAKRISBUBO, Pa, April tt?The J
delegates to the Republican state convention
were alow In arriving- and it was tc
not until 1025 o'clock that the represen- .
tatlve of State Chairman Quay called ?
the convention to order. Two conspicu- ai
ous absentees were leaders David Mar- cj
tin and State Senator Charles A. Porter,
of Philadelphia. These gentlemen have aj
been prominent figures at Republican
gatherings In this state and their ab- 86
sence created much comment among the
oountry delegates who have been accustomed
to seeing them In the front m
row for more than twenty years. C. a
Stuart Patterson and Silas W. Pettit, of la
Philadelphia, both, leaders In the re- C;
form movement in that city, occupied c?
the favorite seats of Messrs. Msrtln and
Porter. m
There was an unusually large attend- n(
anoe of spectators in the galleries. The a
opera houne was elaborately decorated u
with bunting. The roll call showed the ni
presence of 289 delegates. f11
Ex-Speaker Henry W. Boyer, of Phil
adlphia, was elected temporary chairman.
In accepting the chair Mr. Boyer J"
said In part:
"Una T>annw1vnnfn I

louder and yet louder until Its majorities f?
have become phenomenal, the wonder ln
and admiration of all sister states. Forty
years has she loyally served ln this
cause and for forty years no presidential
nominee has come from within her Ijorders.
"And now pointing to her fidelity in y
the past, promising the same measure of r?
faith for the future and presenting to *j
the people of the United States a man **'
tried and trusted by her people, known
and honored by the nation, unsurpassed
In wisdom of his statesmanship, un- **
equalled ln the distinguished servloes he 81
has rendered the cause of Republicanism,
Pennsylvania asks the great party R
to assemble In convention at St Louis
to listen to the voice of this great commonwealth
and nominate for the great 01
and distinguished office of President, w
Pennsylvania's most distinguished son, P
Matthew Stanley Quay." Jj
At the conclusion of Boyer's address. J?
State Senator Flinn. of Plttsburjfch,. and 1,1
Silos Pettlt, of Philadelphia, presented
for endorsement a series of reform bills,
which were referred to the committee on J?
resolutions. The bills are designed to **
prevent bribery, fraud, illegal use of
money at the polls, improper partlclpa- M
tlon of officeholders In politics and .pro- w
vidlng for ? complete system of civil K
service reform In Pennsylvania. T,he {J
presidential electors were then an- J1
nounced. *c

mlttees were announced as follows: J*
Resolutions. Congressman H. H. Blngbam.

Senator William-H, Andrews, of Crawford
county; permanent organization, R

phia. J*
The convention then, at 11:55, took a
recess until 1:80 this afternoon.
The convention re-aaaembled at 2:05.
There was only one district contest and
the committee on credentials reported .

Quay men. The vote in favor of the b(
sitting members was : Ayes, 200; noes,
72. The permanent organisation committee
reported In favor of Auditor General
Mylln for permanent chairman. re
In taking the chair, Mr. Mylln said
sixty years ago at Harrlsburg, a soldier fif
and statesman was named aa the proper 'M
person to be a candidate for the presidency
and he hoped history would re- ei
peat Itself by the naming of the matchless"
leader. Matthew Stanley Quay. dl
After referring to the stagnation of L
business during the administration of \c
President Cleveland, Mr. Mylln con- h>
eluded: o.i
"Go forth with the Bible In one hand 4;
and the Republican platform in the
other and you'll surely win." |0
General Lyngham. then presented the
platform, as follows, which was cc
adopted: H
Thr Platform. E
For fidelity to the principles of Republicanlsm,
Pennsylvania holds the first p
rank among all states. Year after year m
it has returned great majorities for the
candidates of that party with no selfish ^
demands for recognition of any of its t0
own citizens as a national candidate. j{
The time has come when the fetate p;
which ha? so long Hnd faithfully led the
Republican column mny Justly and pro- \\
perly submit its own preference for the C'
Republican nomination for the presl- hi
dency. In the presentation of the Hon. p]
Mathew Stanley Quay, the Republicans,
not alone of Pennsylvania, but of the r?
entire union, will retiogntse one or their m
foremost leaders, wise In council and
brilliant ard able In action, at once the
type of the American citizen, scholar,
soldier nnd statesman.
First of all national Issuer stands protection
and first among Its advocates
have be*?n the Republicans of Pennsyl- Vl
van la. We believe In protection as a'
right to all American Industries, but as
a special favor to none. It should be
neither partial, sectional, nor hypocritl- p'
cal nnd should be as nearly as possible, al
equal and universal. We are not n<
pledged to any schedules, but we demand
a restoration of thf policy of protectlon.
and we pledge It as soon as the ol
Republican party "hall be restored to c<
power In the executive and congrexslonal
departments of the government
and it shall be rw?tored equitably to the w
farmer and the miner, to the manufac- st
turer and artisan. n
We demui.d the restoration of that .
" tun uf reelnmnttv whlfh wn?
framed by Jaaup G. Blaine nnd adopted oi
by the wise and benefice tit admlnlR- L
tratlon of President Harrleon to the oi
great benefit of the eomnrrrco of the hi
oountry. and would be abandoned by ti
tne pimont uemocrauc nuinini.nmuon. "
We approve the policy of national K'
protection to our ship ownrr* and the 1"
Mhlp building Intercut* by dlwcrlmlna- tc
tlon dutlc* In favor of American *hlp- cl
ping, In ord?r thnt the American flair bo tc
restored upon the high hihi*.
Tli* Republican party ban alwny* ni
maintained the national honor and
credit. Jt forced the reauniptlnn of ape- L
cl?- payment. It kept faith si?* to every *1
debt created for the prenervation of the a)
union, and baa paid the grettr pnrt ?>f it tl
In accordance with the spirit and th*
letter of the law* under which It had tl
b??en rnntrarted. It lnrnely reduced the o*
lntere?t charge* upon Che balance of the
debt by refund In c at lower r&tea. It tl
substituted for the fluctuating and In- pi
adequately wxnired not** of the ntut" M
banks an uniform national currtncy of A
Able vanle, and of equal purchasing
id debt paying power. Faithful to Its
cord, believing that the people ore entled
to the uw of the best money, and
ixlous to restore and preserve the 4nistrial
and commercial prosperity of
ie anion, the Republican party favors
ternatlonal bimetallism, and until
tat can be established upon a secure
lsIs opposes the coinage of silver, expt
upon government account and deands
the maintenance of the existing
rid standard of value.
There should be no statute of llmltaDn
against a grateful recognition by
ie government of the services and sacfices
of the soldiers and sailors who
eserved the union. We denounoe the
resent administration of the pension
ireau for Its betrayal of the interests
those heroes and Its enactment of
ich restrictive legislation as will admit
? our shores only those immigrants
ho have the capacity and desire to heme
good American citizens.
The remainder of the platform relates
i State issues.
When General Bingham bad finished

of Delaware county, offered as an

A disturbance arose when Congressan

A motion to lay this on the table was

At this Mr. Robinson went down the

The proposition was defeated, yeas,

The South Penn Oil Company has
drilled its No. 1 John Leckman, located
west of the Builman development
at Wick, Tyler county, to ? depth of 115
feet Into the Big Injun sand, and has
found nothing. This well, like tne no.
4 on that farm, completed a few days
since, will drop Into the duster list
Northwest of the Bullman wells the
Kanawha Oil Company is driling at
1,500 feet at Its No. 5 Anthony Smith,
and is rigging up at No. 2 Griffith.
The same company is due in the Berea
sand at Its test well on the Plummer

the Bull and Calf creek development,
above Waverly. 3n the last-named
territory the Henry Oil Company has
completed a nice Cow run sand producer

but nearer the Dyke.
The Springer Oil Company, of Wheeling,
the Came of Some Excitement.
The Moundsvllle Eoho goes after a
Wheeling oil company In this fashion In
Its Issue of last evening:
Some Wheeling sharks have been
working the farmers out about the Rogerson
well In a way that will lead to
some vigorous litigation If the land owners
are green enough to step Into the
trap. These sharks aw working the
owners to lease the road beds leading:
through their lands, and odd notches
cut off by the publio highways These
sharks know or should know that the
land owners cannot give or lfase a right
to put an obstruction on the public highway
nor is the farmer permitted to place
any obstruction there himself. Those
sharks style themselves the Springer Oil
and Oas Company.. William Rita, president,
and George W. Dusch. secretary.
The farmers who have already leased
their lands have givfen the oil right to all
the land they possess and a releasing of
any part of it until the first lesees have
forfeited their right is only laying a
foundation for trouble. Wheeling
claims everything In the Marshall field.
If they can't get -it by other means they
will make it boil In the litigation pot
and ladle the froth over into Ohio
C><rrr-thr-Rlvrr Oil Soles.
The Pine Hill well on the Mlehte
farm, four and a half miles west of
Portland. Ohio, was expected In yester

time ago also a gasser. as did No. 1 on
the Mrs. Maggie Busby farm. In all
the wells there was a light showing? of
oil. A number of other rigs are up and
oil men think indications are good.for a
pool if the** can locate it
They have at last found a 200-barrel
oil well In Noble county. It is on the
farm of P. B. Ellison, near Crooked
Tree. The Caldwell Republican says:
"The well is said to be the best producer
ever found In Noble county, and opens
up a new territory. Only one screw
was drilled In the sand when the oil began
to flow at a high rata. With the
tools in the well the oil flowed every
hour, and at times was forced over the
top of the derrick, and before a tank
could be erected hundreds of barrels of
OH vai lost. Tne WCU M rac-JWi min
west of any other well drilled In Noble
oounty, and during the drilling the
showing became so ?t>od that the stock
advanced from $100 to 1700 per share."

Continuing', he said:
"I do nut want to predict that there

NEW YORK, April 21?A dispatch to
the World from Madrid Bays: The report
that an understanding- Is about to toe' j
reached between Spain and the United
States In refard to Cuba, la favorably
received In financial and commercial circles
without stopping to Inquire
whether the welcome news is true or not
According to the current story, the
Spanish government is to grant to Cuba
very soon home rule on a much broader
scale than contemplated in the bin*
which have so far passed the cortes and
that this concession is to be supplemented
by tariff reform and a trefrty of
reciprocity to develop trade between the
United States and the Spanish West
The Liberal says: The Spanish
mothers whose SO,000 sons are about to
be exposed to the deadly climate of
Cuba, during the rainy season, the
Spanish tax payers, who apprehend the
consequences of the heavy cost of a prolonged
civil war and indeed the whole
nation at heart, would gladly welcome
the pacification of Cuba by an early,
sincere concession of reforms now admitted
by almost all Spanish politicians
U? BC UlgCUl OilU lUK^r IUWII.
It la obviouily the prevalent impression
in many classes that the best oourae
tar Spain to pursse, Is to bow to the '
pressure and circumstances before it is
too late and do with good grace what
possibly may yet avert Cuban independence
as procrastination and misguided
postponement of tardy concessions may
lead to a conflict with America.
On the other hand, directly the Jingo
papers preoeive the drift of public opinion
they again start an antl-American
The Heraldo opened Are by affecting
to lament the decay of pride, patriotism
and popular enthusiasm, predicting the
successive loss to Spain of her colonies ;i
all over the world through foreign influence.
The Imperial follows suit, declaring
that the nation will never allow Its government
to bow to American interfer- 1
ence in favor of West India and home
