Autocratic Hilling Against 31 r.

The RjjpubHcans of the House exe

but it was a retreat. They adjourned
the House over from yesterday after

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.

England, on the Teller resolution, and

The Republicans made another great
fuss and -the Speaker rapped the House
to Older. It was declared by a Republi
can thattMr. Ha'ridy had been .given the

"That Is infamously false,"" shouted a
The Demorrats then made the square
issue that Mrt Handy proceed whether
in order or not, Mr. Handy admitting
that what he had to say was not Ger
mane tothe IjiU. .. v
On the aye and no vote, on a division,
by tellers, and on-the yeas and nays,
which were called, the Democrats were
defeated, and Mr. Handy was not per
mitted to proceed in or our of order.
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.
The fight and filibustering were re
newed on the .bill, reported Vnm the
"Ways andMteans-ommlttee, making
Rookfor.d Me., a sub-port of entry. One
hour was granted to'the Democrats for
debate. The thirty minutes were sur
rendered again to Mr. Handy, who had
hardly begun his speech when Mr. Dal
zell arose and insisted that the gentle
man from Delaware vas out of order.
It was contended that Mr. Handy
wished to discuss the question, and in

Living Exhibits of the Deputies'
Assault at Lattimer.
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. When

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-
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. .. .

cution is Samuel W. Jackson, a horse
