Wahtngton,March SO Congressman Bailey, the IXmocratic leader of th house, presented a a matter of privi lege a resolution recognizing the inde pendence of Cuba. A perfi-ct whirl wind of applause overwhelmed the house from the galleries. Mr. Bou telle made a point of order against it and Mr. Bailey declared he bad no purpose to rata disorder in the house. He believed he had the right to make It The great est confusion and excitement prevailed. Mr. E:ley mid tLe bouse had the right to di-elde this question and accept the responsibility. He cited treeedent in the Fifty-third congress, when on a similar question the sjraker of the house and the Republican all voted against the ruling of Speaker Cmp, holding the Hawaiian resolution offered by Mr. Eoutelle, w hile in order, mutt go to the committee aud was not privi leged for Immediate consideration. Th Democrat, and tho galleric repeatedly applauded him. Mr. Bou telle replied detailing the cir cumstance of the precedent, but con tending the ruling I errxjnoos. Mr. Hull, chairman of the military affair Committee, who is at the bead of th radical Republicans arose to rally hi fol lower, against the resolution at thit time.

While this waa going on the Repub lican were whispering in groups, and conservative were circulating among them nrging them not to allow the Drm ocrat to the initiative when Mr. IVrry (Dem , Ark.) was nrging that the ques tion of privilege should be submitted to the house for decision. Mr. Hopkins, who presided at the meeting of Republican last evening, sapMrted the point of order made sganst. Ihe Bailey resolution. He claimed It was not a question of pervnv al privilege or one that affected the house. It simply called for an expres sion a to the patriot in Cuba, and the resolution should goto the committee. Ho was not willing to be carried off bis feet lo overturn tho rules of the house, and he hoped other Republicans would take the same view. Speaker Rt-cd said the question of war and independence did not constitute question of privilege and would not, he thought, at any time except in time of great excitement The speaker sustain ed the point of order and Mr. Bailey ap- fn'm ,b decision, The vote on laying the appeal on the table showed lit to 130. No Rcpublic an voted in the negative. The resolution offered by Mr. Bailey was m follows: . "Reselved by the senate and house of representatives that through the strug gle of the Cuban people against the force of arms and horror of famine, ha shown them worthy to be free. And, second, the Uuited States hereby recog nizes the republic of Cuba as a free and independent staW. After the announcement of the vote Mr. Bailey asked what became of the resolution and the sakcr replied it would not go to the committee on for eign re bit ions, but if introduced in the regular war, through the box, it would be rvfem-d. Mr. Bailey appealed from the decision, but the speaker said it wa a rliameutary inquiry that Mr. Bailey luul made, anil uo apieal conld be taken.
