6 KMR.1LRHD Mr. Money Questions His Knowl edge of Naval Affairs. TJLT AT THE TREATY DEBATE The -Mississippi Senator In Inter rupted During; Din Splendid Argu-i luent lov Annexation by t be Smith Carolinian, ami a Verbal Coinb.it Follow. The debate m executive session over the Hawaiian treaty yesterday was characteilzed by a little tilt between Senator Money, who had been advocat- ing annexation, and Mr. Tillman, who is opposed to it. Mr. Money made a magnificent speech in favor of annexation, one of the best that has been heard since the debate was opened by the line argu ment of the chairman of the Committee on Foreign Relations. Mr. Money took the ground that over and above all other considerations, the American Government should take the islands, because they were essential to the wel fare and protection of this country. He discussed the question from the mili tary standpoint, and contended, as have- so many others, that with these islands the United States would be masters of the situation, so far as the Pacific was concerned. Mr. Money found ample precedents for the posi tion he held in Democratic annals, and asserted that the annexation of the islands was indoised by all the Demo cratic Presidents from the days of Jef ferson down. Even Cleveland, he held, must have been In favor of annexation, or his Secretary of Slate, Mr. Bayard, would not have been, and that Mr. Bayaid believed the islands would be eventually annexed there could be, Mr. Money said, no doubt. It was while Mr. Money was disi-ss-ing the .military and naval advantage of the Islands that Mr. Tillman inter rupted him and wanted to know why any foreign power could not carry its coal to this country for the purpose of coaling ships of war. This, he con tended, could be easily done, and, that being true, from his standpoint, the Hawaiian Islands lost their value as a base of supplies. "Any man." said Mr. Money, "who ever read any of the naval history of modern warfare, would know that hhips of war eould not be successfully coaled from transports. If you had read naval history you would not have asked such a question. "Well," retorted Mr. Tillman, "1 , have read Capt. Mahan's history of iia-al warfare, and I still contend Inat I that could be done." "If you have read that history," re plied Mr. Money, "there is no possible excuse for the question you have isk ed.' "Weil, I assert now that tlicr is J.o reason why coal cannot be carried in bailing vessels for the use of warships in fine of war, and I have not baen sat isfactorily answered by the gentleman from Mississippi," replied Mr. Tillman. "I have a right to expect a response to my questions. 1 do not propose to be held up here as an ignoramus." Mr. Money disclaimed any intention of being rude to Mr. Tillman or of ac cusing him of being an ignoramus. "I have been in the Senate now three years." said Mr. Tillman, "and I have endeavored to act as a gentleman, but I do not propose to be sat down upon." By tills time Mr. Money had conclud ed his argument and took his scat. Several Senators called up nominations and half a dozen were on their feet at the same 'time endeavoring to get the attention of the presiding officer, Mr. Gallinger, who happened to be in the -hair. Among this number ias Mr. Tillman, who wished to reply to Mr. Money. Mr. Tillman, unfor tunately, could not get the eye of the presiding officer, and he proceeded to yell at the top of his voice and he kept up his demand for recog nition until Mr. Gallinger. In self de fense, was compelled to give him audi ence. Mr. Tillman accused the chair with a deliberate intention of refusing ' to see him but the chair stated that several Senators were clamoring f r t recognition and he had not been able ! to see them all at one time. Mr. Till man was mollified, but he will reply to Mr. Money at the next executive sta tion. AHGFK FOR SFTFRAG13. Addresses at the Mass Mrctinp' of ' the BiiildlngTiades Council. !

Senor Dupuy de Lome left Washing ton yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clock by the Congressional Limited on the Penn sylvania road. He was accompanied by ids family. De Lome's departure was almost en tirely without incident. The publica tion in The Evening Time's of the Intended-hour that De Lome would leave Washington caused a considerable crowd of persons to be gathered at the Baltimore and Potomac station. The De Lome party arrived at the de pot twenty minutes before the train left. The carriage containing Benor De Lome and his wife was preceded by an other, in which was the. ex-minister's private secretary. Senor De Lome gave his arm to Senora De .Lome -andsthey passed into the depot thnjUph'he, JJ street entrance. T)ie tickets qti.il al ready been purchased, so thcpausein the ladies' waiting room was very brief. The largest crowd to see the departing foreigners was In the general waiting room. Senor De Lome appeared pale, but perfectly self-possessed as lib made his way through the lane opened for him. There was not "the slightest demon stration of any kind in the depot. Sev eral additional policemen were station ed about the depot, but their services rwere not nerded. - At the gate the De Lome parly was met by quite a number of the attaches and oificialF of the legation who had come to bid the ex-minister farewell. A group of newspaper men awaited the party on the platform. Half way down the shed an employe of the railroad company was stationed. None but I hose holding Pullman palace car tick ets was allowed to pass him except members of the De Lome party. A number of tlose who dcsiied to bid friends adieu on the car steps were turned back. This was unusual and significant. As a result very few peo ple saw the actual departure of the pai ty. Senor De Lome conducted his wife to her apartment in the car and then returned to the platform, chatting pleasantly with the dozen or more gen tlemen there. Presently the station master gave the signal to stait the train and then there was a hurried shaking of hands and good-byes. Senor De Lome made a misstep as he entered the vestibule of the car and his hat was jostled over his eyes. He caught it in his hand and stood smiling as the car began to move. The party on the platform removed their hats as Senora De Lome bowed a smiling adieu to them from the car window. UK KILLS HIS S1STKH. A Georgia Trajieily Follows a Quarrel Over a -Meal.
