TEMPER DURING DEBATE
Vice President Calls Him to Order,
and Chamber Adjourns Amid
Scenes of Excite.
ment
[ASSOOISted I'ri*F»]
BERLIN. March 18.—Herr yon Old
enburg, Conservative-Agrarian, who
January 29 almost precipitated a riot
In the relchstag when he declared the
emperor bad tlie right at any time to
order a lieutenant ami ten mon to
clij.ni> the. chamber, has stirred things
Up again.
Replying to an inquiry by yon Old
enburg, Gen. Gebsattel, Bavarian mil
itary member of the federal council,
had undertaken to explain the speech
(if tli f ■ Bavarian war minister, who had
designated yon Oldenburg** expression
an "tasteless and tactless."
Gen, Qebsattel said that the minister
Of war had not intended to Insult yon
Oldenburg,
Yon Oldenburg expresed satisfaction
with this explanation, but four' Pro
gressists twitted him upon the rebuke
be bad swallowed.
At this the Bery Conservative Jumped
I to his feet and declared none of the
I four members who had attacked him
I had any Idea of personal honor. This
I caused the Socialists. Liberals and
i Radicals to rise In their seats and
I shout a demand that YOn Oldenburg
be called to urder.
At llrst Vice President Spahn con
tented himself with rebuking the of
fending member, but this did not sat
isfy the house, mid amid prolong d
i cries for an enforcement of the rules
the presiding officer finally called yon
Oldenburg to order.
Later the disorder was renewed and
| culminated virtually In an open chal
lenge to B duel from yon Oldenburg.
When Dr. Wiemer, Progressist,
| asked the Conservatives for a declara-
tion of whether they agreed with yon
Oldenbuig's conduct, Herr yon Nor
mann declared the Conservatives did
not approve their colleague's utter
ances.
Yon Oldenburg then arose and shout
ed: "Rudeness calls forth rudeness.
I am at the disposal of Mueller, Mein
ingen and Hausmann at any time."
Amid the din that followed could be
distinguished the voice of Hausmann,
who cried:
"Such a challenge to a duel never
has been heard In the relchstag be
fore, It shows how yon Oldonburg de
grades and demoralizes the torn- of the
house. His conduct is unworthy."
The presiding officer called Haus
mann to order, but the latter contin
ue.], describing yon Oldenburg's be
havior as childish and declaring that
ho was acting like Don Quixote. This
brought another call to order, and I
suggestion from the chair that the
discussion be closed and adjournment
to April 12 taken.
The chamber adjourned amid great
confusion,
