I[l II 111 BUT NOT MORE SO THAN DID HIS REPUBLICAN COL,- LEAGUES WAEM DEBATE IN THE HOUSE OHIO DEMOCRAT HAD THK WHOLE OPPOSITE SIDE ON HIM) AT OXCE DAYS WOBK IN THE SENATE Postal Appropriation BUI Aidranced, but Not Completed—Mr. Depew Furnishes Some Compara live Railway Klgrurs. WASHINGTON, Feb. 20.—The house finally passed the sundry civil appro priation bill today, and entered upon consideration of the general deficiency— "the last of the general appropriation bills. The proceedings were enlivened by a humorous speech made by Mr. Allen <.s!iss .y "the wit of the house," In favor of an amendment offered by him to ap propriate J20.000 for a fish hatchery at Tupelo, Miss. Mr. Allen goes out of congress Mar. h 4, after a service of n years. He declared that "thou sands and millions of unborn fish were clamoring to this congress for the op portunitj of being born in Tupelo." (Mr. Allen's home.) The amendment was unanimously adopted. The question of ?-earranging the hall of representatives for the aceommoda •■!' members in accordance with a plan agitated some years ago, to re ts and substitute benches a imethlng after the manner in which ■ use 01" commons is arranged, came up on a motion made by Mr. Crumpacker (Ind.) to appropriate $116,000 for "refur nishing and rearranging the hall of the house of representatives, including the removal of the individual desks of mem h> is, and the reduction of the size and tm reseating of the hall in a manner that will iir> most convenient for the ses sions of the house. The amendment also provides for the refurnishing of the sneaker's room. The proposition was debated at considerable length, and then defeated, yeas 45 nays 3t:i. The sundry civil bill was then pass ed. The house next took up the general deficiency appropriation bill. LENTZ ATTACKS HANXA. to a pro forma amendment, Mr. Lentz (O.) had read a paragraph from a Columbus, 0., newspaper! re porting the death of Charies Lyland, territorial judge of New Mexico, who was at one time a member of the Ohio legislature, and who, the newspaper said, voted for Mr. Hanna for United States senator. "With this paragraph as a text. Mr. Ivntz attacked corruption In high and low places, charging fhnt a Judicial place had been given Mr. Ly. land in return for his vote for United States senator. Mr. Steel (Tnd.l made the point of order that Mr. Lentz was not speaking to the subject under con sideration, but was "jumping on a dead man.'' "I am not jumping on a dead roan," replied Mr. Lentz, "but upon a man who Is so alive that he will ride down Penn sylvania avenue with the president one ■week from Monday." "1 don't know Mr. LylomV interposed Mr. Cannon (111.) emphatically, 'but I do know the gentleman from Ohio. Brave men fight the living; ghouls ravish the tombs of the dead. That is all I have i<> Bay." (Republican applause.) Ijater on Mr. Grosvenor attempted to secure an opportunity to reply to Mr. Lentz. bat Mr. Lentz objected unless twenty minutes were allowed on a side. "It is not possible that my colleague will insist upon his objection," answered Mr. Groavenor. "He made an attack upon a dead man, and I desire five min ute? to reply." "I did not make an attack upon a dead man," replied Mr. Lentz. "I made an expose of a live man. I have the proof here if you desire to open the subject." Angered by Mr. Lentz 1 refusal to allow him to he heard, Mr. Grosvenor, with flushed face and uplifted arm, declared that the gentleman from Ohio (Mr. Lentz) had been guilty of a malicious falsehood. "And he knows It," added Mr. Gros venor. A few minutes afterward Mr. I.cr.tz proposed that Mr. Grosvenor be given fifteen minutes, and he (Lentz) ten min utes. "Oh. T object," called out Mr. Cannon. "If gentlemen desire to wash their dirty linen, they should hire a hall" (Laugh ter.) LENTZ OX DESERTION. A vei-v sensations] episode occurred When the paragraph providing that not $50 should l c paid for the apprehen- Blon of ;i deserter from the army was reached. This paragraph was "seized by Mr. Lentz for a base from which to attack what he said was going on in the Philippines, and which so disgusted our soldiers there they deserted. He de flared that reports wore coming back from the Philippines that our soldiers •were killing prisoners, and said he knew of a letter received by the father of a soldier in the Philippines, telling of how n native had been buried alive by his captors and then beheaded. "If thai was the sort of civilization th.it *t.s being carried into the Philippines,"' Mr. Lentz declared that it would take $60,000 to prevent our soldiers from de serting. Again and again he shouted that they were justified in deserting. Mr. Lenta' remarks aroused the house to fever pitch. Mr. Graham (Rep.. Pa) challenged Mr. Lentz to produce the let ter he had referred to. He said he thought it existed only in the imagina tion of the gentleman from Ohio. Mr. Lentz declared that the letter could hot be produced without getting the boy Into trouble. « Mr. Cannon, In impressive tones, de clared that a gentleman who would ris« In his place in the American congress and advise men who had enlisted under the American flag to desert might be safe here, but if they should say the Bame thing in the Philippines they would l>e tried by drumhead court-martial and shot. This statement brought a round of applause from the Republican side. But Mr. Lentz returned to the assault. He read a newspaper account of a letter alleged to have been received by the father of a soldier in the Philippines, say ing that soldiers were ordered to shoot every man and beast they found. Kr. Lentz declared that he could not be "browbeaten." If such orders had been Issued, he said, this congress, collectively, ehould be ashamed to face the world! He charged that our soldiers were guilty of murder and said the time had come when the country was entitled to know the facts and not to rely upon a censored press. Mr. Cannon said tlie gentleman was lashing himself into a passion, while th* Continued on Fifth Vage. _ - ■ - . —#1 PHOTOGRAPHS OF TliE MirMESOTA SENATE A tip HOUSE THE SENATE. 19 sL W- W&a i&*m nil - P H i^ he H°' cg°ing f 6 rePl° ductions of Photographs of the Minnesota Senate and House of Representatives.
