VIENNA Feb 27 The proceedings In
the Relchsrath today remov ed almost the
last hope that a continuance of a par
liamentary government Is possible under
existing conditions
A handful of extremists Czechs and
Pan Germans are responsible for the
state of affairs which is preventing all
work They daily turn the lower house of
the Relchsrath into a bear garden con
tending for their alleged rights in their
respective languages
There was an outbreak today that was
the most disgraceful ever witnessed In
the House The Czech Radicals put up
Heir Fraesscl to make an obstructionist
speech He boasted that he would speak
for eight hours
When he h id spoken for an hour In the
Czech language the Pan Germans broke
Into a buzz shouted and raved and de
manded that Vice President Zacek compel
Herr rnessel to speak In German The
Vice President who himself is a Czech
refused whereupon there was a btorm of
1 indignation
I Herr Zicek abandoned the chair whieh
I wis then taken by the President In a
frhort time the Germans made a dash for
Herr Traessel
Instantly dozens of deputies who had
hitherto been passive Joined In a free
light which raged liercelv for several
minutes Blows were exchanged clothes
were torn and hair pulled
About fifty members took part in the
f rav the othera crying Shame Ul
timately the attendants tore the batter
ed combatants apart
The President meanwhile had suspended
the sitting When he returned to the
ehalr he earnestly appealed to the depu
ties warning them that their conduct
would make parliamentary government
Impossible His remonstrances were un
heeded and the tumult was renewed
For the last two hours of the seslon
Herr Fraesscl spoke fitfully through the
uproar The Cabinet met subsequently
and it is rumored that the Ministers de
cided to resign on the ground that It was
Impossible to control the Parliament or
carrj on legislation

good of the service and said that he nnd
his superior officer fully understood each

He IVItlulrnTVH Them Because of
Dispute With Thompson
LINCOLN Neb Feb 27 There was an
other strike on In the Senatorial right to
night Mr Roseuater withdrew his Doug
las County delegation numbering eight
giving as his reason that two of Thomp
sons men had said in caucus last night
that would not vote fer Rosewater
If he were nominated Fifty two of the
seventj two Republicans remained In cau
cus and balloting went on
Rosewater earlier in the daj served
notice upon D E Thompson that he pro
posed opening out on him through his
newspaper ami woulel demand his with
drawal on the ground that he was dls
lojal to the two years ago Rose
water had vainly sought to induce
Thompson to tie Up with him and the
notice was but the repetition of an old
tin cat
Mr Rosewater later qualified his state
ment of the morning by sajlng that he
would Indulge In no personalities In his
discussion of the Senatorial situation but
that he should certainly have something
lo about existing conditions The
Thompson men say that Mr Kosewaters
action Is taken entirely because Thomp
son has refused his frequent proposals
for a tlc up and the disbelief of Rose
water that Thompson Is sincere when he
sajs he- cannot deliver all his men to
It is understooel Rosewater will base hU
attack on Tnompsons corporation aflla
tlons nut Thompsons m n say that It will
fall of having inj influence because Rose
water has at all times been willing to tie
up with Thompson It the latter will take
The most serious effect probablj Is the
practical disruption of the caucus Speak
er Sears who presides Is a Rosewater
man He rules that as there are less
than slxtj -seven members present the
number necessarj to elect any result the
caucus ma- reach will not be binding
upon the members This Is the last hope
of a caucus and onlj the interference of
the National Committee will prevent an
adjournment without elections

In such person and persona and shall be

reservation of the right toalter amend or
repeal the sairs nnd provided that no
sale or lease of public propertj shall bo
made and no franchise granted which Is
not approved by the President of tho

clearlj necessary for the Immediate gov

Much indignation was expressed at the
result but no hope was advinced The
love of appointments and Jobs on the
Sundry Civil and Paver and Harbor bills
galneel the day and those who were pla
cateil spent the day In trying to forces
the belligerents tei give up
When the bill was called up at 1130
oclock jesterday morning Mr Turner
resumed his address
He criticised It as a departure from th
American system the first departure In
the history of the country and as vesting
In the President of the United States all
ot the powers which belong to and are
exercised bj the Czar of Russia It was
he said a trenstrous proposition which
ought not to be countenanceel for a mo
ment If salel he I were a Filipino I
woulel never cease opposition to the at
tempt to Impose the rule of the United
States Government on mjself and my reo
ple In the face of so tjrannlcal a propei
sitlon as that involved In the amendment
And I should lose faith In the justice and
mercy and love ot the Almighty 11 he per
mitted the struggle which the people of
the Philippine islands are now making to
throw oft the rule ot the United States to
Mr Teller addressed the Senate prom
islng to be as brief as he could in dis
cussing the two controverted quest ons
the Piinlpplno Islands and Cuba As to
the former the amendment had Leca
verj much Improved by Mr Hoars
amendment to It but still It was an
provision As to the Cuban
proposition It was verj much tetter than
the public prcsa ad led him to expect
but some features of It did not meet his
approv il
Mr lloir remarked that the United
States had no more right to govern th
people of the Philippine islands than the
people of the Philippines had to govern
the people of the United States Ho added
that If Mr Teller would make his amend
ment declare that the Constitution of tho
United btates was to be In full force and
effect In the Philippines so long as the
authority of the United States was main
tained there he would acquiesce cheerfully
Mr Teller proceeellng with his argu
ment against the Spooner amendment
s iel that the eeiict had gone out nnd tfcit
that legislation was to be put on the stat
ute book The ailmlnlstratlon of affairs
In the Philippine Islanels hail been on
that principle for two jears and it would
go on with the statute or without It But
be regretteel to see the American Con
gress putting itself on what he belleveel
to be a wlekeel and vicious sjstem of ad
mlulstrvtion and he rould not lend his
support to It
Mr Pettlgrew read a prospectus of a
lniuLiind mining syndicate formed to op
erate in the Philippines The head of the
companj was nameel as Representative
Hull anil the document salel that no
other company coultl get the same grants
that the syndlcite could Mr Pettigrevv
scored Mr Hull for exploiting the fhll
lpplnes while ht framed a bill to raise an
army to steal the land from the natives
This he Mid was onlj a sample of what
was being done and what would be done
