TIip session of the House yesterday vas alsoremarkable for the first fili bustering? of the winter. It was intended-Tis a rebuke to what was con sidered an exceedingly autocratic rul ing of the Speaker, which took a Demo crat off his. feet who .had been granted the right to speak. The debate pro and con on this -question was acrimonious, and cost the Republicans the waste of nearly a whole day, with the prospect that these tactics will be resorted to at any time that it occurs to the Demo crats as beneficial to the party. Only three small matters were be fore the House, and yet a. lialf hour could not be given to a Democrat to make a speech. The Republicans affected to be irri tated by 31 r. Handy, of .Delaware. It -was supposed by the Republicans that he Jiad been held in the leash by the Democrats, who desired to spring him on the House with a red-hot Cuban speech, involving the Dupuy de Lome letter. As a matter of fact. Mr. Han dy only wanted time to puncture some of the statements in the lett r of Thorn. a F. Bajitfo' former ambassador to England, on the Teller resolution, and v fetch it is said was intended to hurt Mi. H?iidy in Delaware in th. fall elation.

He gave notice, however, that he would be heard in due time. The suppression of Mr Handy led to a blocking of the Perkins bill, and to the first genuine filibustering of the session. Nearly two hours were ex hausted in discussions and roll-calls, until 2 n. m. When the third reading of Use bill was called for only sixty meinbeis, voted inthe aggregate. The point of mr?ju6rum -was made, and a call of the House was ordered, with instructions bv the Speaker to bring in the absentees. - The first vote was taken to order the bill to a third reaQIng.

Lansburgh JSGABS OF THE STRIKERS Living Exhibits of the Deputies' Assault at Lattimer. WORKMEN SHOT AS THEY FLED Intelligent ileu at Wilkcshmre Give Strong Evidence Against Sheriff Martin und..JIii Men Vindictive Spirit Manifested by the Membois of the Posse. Wilkesbarre, Pa., Feb. 10. A well cpnnected story of the shooting down r of unarmed men fleeing from the depu ties was told on behalf of the prosecu tion in today's proceedings in the trial of Sheriff Martin and his deputies for the shooting at Lattimer on Septem ber 10. Living exhibits ere also put in evidence. Several of the witnesses who had been vvounded were made to remove their clothing and hhow tlie scars on their bodies. ,t j. Daniel J. Ferry, a young man from Hazloton, a tea and coffee dealer there, was the most important one of tbe day. He is an intelligent man, and was ex amined closely by the prosecution and defense. -After stating that he had driven from Hazleton to Lattimer on the day "of" the shooting in quest of or ders he paid that he first saw the strik ers coming, along .when he was well on his way to Lattimer. They were com ing up behind him and, turning around, he saw a man in the rront rank bear ing an American fiag. When he got to Lattimer he saw the deputies drawn up. and as he evidently foresaw an en-- counter he. stopped his wagon along side the electric railway embankment and awaited developments. Presently he saw the strikers come within some fifty yards" of the line of deputies and saw the sheriff step out of the lineof-l deputies and go up to and speak to.the strikers. "T could not hear what the sheriff, said to the strikers," said tlie witness, "as I was behind the deputies. How ever, I saw the sheriff wrangle with two men and get pushed into the ditch along the road by them. At the same instant P heard a shot and immediately after a volley. I saw several in the front rank ot tlie strikers fall and then the crowd began to disperse and run in all directions." "What happened then?" "The deputies continued to shoot after the fleeing men. I saw one man shot, he Jell on the railroad. track, and got up, whereupon he received another shot " The witness said he knew Turner, , Raught, and Turnback, of the deputies. He saw Willliam Raught get up on the bank of the electric railway and shoot after a man running through" the bushes towards the schoolhouse.

Furniture and the volley came the strikers were dis persing, running in all directions. Mr. Lenahan's cross-examination, searching and minute as it was, failed to shake tlie testimony of the witness in any material point- On the con trary it only brought out more clearly the point that when the shooting began the sheriff was in a ditch alongside the line of fire and therefoie in no danger of 1 eing shot. Ferry's testimony was undoubtedly damaging to the defense, as it was in telligently given and apparently with out any bias. The only point favorable to the defense was brought out by Mr. Lenahan, that the iv itness had seen the sheriff hold up "his hands toward the crowd as if expostulating or warning. August Cascotski gave an intelligent account of the happenings at West Hazleton and at Lattimer after the shooting. He declared that he did not see a weapon in the hands of any of the strikers. The succeeding witnesses, John Pen trick, John TJrlch and Joseph Mokki, onlv reiterated the oft-told occurrences at West Hazleton and Lattimer, and told of no new incidents except! that Mokki asserted that one of the depu ties at West Hazleton had made the re mark that they would shoot the strik ers down like dogs. Mokki and Harris, the last of the day's witnesses, had been respectively shot in the right arm and lower part of the back, and exhibited their wounds to tlie jury- THE S0NAVENGKD HIM. Peter Bareia on Trial for Killing His' Fathers Murderer. New Xork, Feb. 10. Peter Bareia. 20 years old, who lives in East Thirteenth street, was on trial to-day in the crimi nal branch of the supreme court charg ed with killing Frank Sassata, who, six years ago. killed Barcia's father. Cassata was a baiber, doing business in Sixth avenue near Fifty-second street. After he had killed Barcia's father he was .convicted of murder in the first degree, but his counsel, Law yer Howe, succeeded in getting him a new trial, and got him out of the Tombs on ball. AccorSing to the prosecution, the sou of the man wlwjm Sassata. killled called 1 a meeting -of his fellow-countrymen and at that .meeting said he would kill the assassin of? his father if be could get two men to decoy Cassata to a suit able place. On the night of August 2 last the two men who, it is alleged, a.greed to decoy Cassata, met Cassata, intending to take him into the hallway of a Mulberry street house.'where Bareia was to shoot him. The two'men, it is said, could not induce 'Cassata to go to the Mulberry I street house, so they kept him in con versation on tlie sidewalk until Peter Bareia came along and shot him in the back. .. . -The prineipalwitness for the prose cution is Samuel W.

The Pre1" Censorship in Havana Worse Now Than Ever. Havana, via Key West, Feb. 10. Gen. j Pando summoned to the palace the edi I tors of all the Havana papers and,4aul to them: "If directly or indirectly, or by words of double meaning or in ironical wjirases vou refr to the failure df the pinasts, uu reier io me lanure ox int trip of Blanco, tlie failure of autonomy, the failure of the prospects of future i peace, or mention in any way our with the United j strained relations- I States, I shall have the paper imme diately suppresed" and its editor sent I to Spain." j The muzzling of the press is to-day j worse than in tlie pafmy days of Wey 1 ler. and it is very difficult to get any news through the military censors. T?he Spanish Red Cross published last Sunday an article in the Union COnsti I tucionale, saying they could not. con j tinue their work, as they had no more I money, which they aver was spent in sending back to Spain 40)00 sick sta 4 Piers. j ' ., rr - .,. , ... ,., STERLING S"- ffi' true.
