The fight over bc Hawaiian matter in the house fol- lswed fast and furious on the heels of the rca Jing of the message, which was delayed acennnt of the pension de bate until S;S0 Monday afternoon. The Lrst skirmish oc-urrcd over the oucs- tion of reading he instructions to Minister Willis, -;!ch was in sisted upon by Mr. EnqU-ua (rep.. Me.). The house finally agr-ed to this, and immediately after the con clusion of this reading Mr. Itoutcll renewed the assault by bringing for ward a resolution declaring the admin istration policy inconsistent with the spirit of the constitution and the tradi tions of the government. Great excite ment reigned, and in the confusion Mr. itoutelle failed to follow up Jis parliamentary advantage and was ruled out of order. r rceaat-at- Arms Called la. The resolution of Mr. Cochran (dem.,' 5J. Y.) for the appointment of a com mittee of seven to investigate the al leged invasion of the territorial integ rity ot tne Lnited States by the last administration also went down under a retaliatory objection of Mr. Itonteile. The confusion wa so great that the nergeant-at-arms was called in t J preserve order. An ad journment was caused by the lack of a quorum on a motion to go into commit tee. Tarty feeling ran very high at the close 01 th.3 session and there is no doubt the struggle will be continued as boon as opportunity offers in the house. Mr. ftoatclle's Kesolntloa.

The reading of the message in the senate was concluded at 1 p. ra. and Senator Chandler (rep., X. II.) called for the reading of the instructions to Minister Willi. The first of those was the instructions of Mr. Urcsham to Mr. Willis, dated October 18, lbdJ, marked "confidential,' and it was ordered to be read. The first paragraph of the letter had Just been read when Senator ltutlcr (dem., K. C) suggested tliut time would be saved by having the comuuinication printed instead of read. An hour's do- bate followed, participated in by many senators. (senator Allison (rep., Ia.) said he had a right to have read every paper sent In by the president in pursuance of a resolution of the senate. He thereupon moved that the instructions referred to be read. Senator ltutlcr withdrew bis motion to refer the matter to the com mittee and the vice president ordered the instructions to Minister W illis read. For a Frovlsloaal USiiirusna.
