WASHINGTON' , D. C. , March 18. "Hot shot for mugwumps Hoar and Williams shown \ip Williams' report on stiver coinaeo rid dled.1' Those were nonio of the words that Mr. Williams of Massachusetts objected to , nnd asked to have stricken from the record us n part oftho speech ol Mr. Walk-rot Massa chusetts , which had not boon delivered bv that gentleman In the bouse. Mr. Williams charactorl/cd the language as ungentlemanly - manly , unmanly , uapnillnmcntary und offensive In thu extreme. Ho considered nn nlUck upon Ibo mugwumps ns n personal nttack , for bo had been ono. In the campaign of 1831 bis eolloaiuo had boon ono of the greatest mugwumps of the day , but now ho hated the mugwumps worse than ho did the devil. The house , nllor Iho consideration of rou tine bualncis , proceeded to the consideration of the private calendar. On resolution nt Mr. Bushnell of Wiscon sin a resolution WAS ndoplcd calling on the secretary of war nnd attorney cencrnl for information relating to ccvernmont dams on the Mississippi river between tbo mouth ot the Chlppowa river In Wisconsin nnd West Newton slough , Minnesota. "Mr. Williams lilies Ion Point of Order. Mr. Williams of Massachusetts , rising to n question of privilege , moved to strike from the record that porlinn of that speech of Mr. Walker of Massachusetts , printed on Tues day last , which had not boon delivered by him. Thcro seemed to be , said Mr. Williams , u constant complaint on the part of demo cratic representatives irom Massachusetts against their republican colleagues. Ho xvould not complain in this matter were not tbo public utterances ot n personal and In- Bulling nature , such as ho th night seldom appeared In the records of congress. Tbo speech which the gentleman had printed made n gross attack on the class of men who were denominated "mugwump' ! , " and on the New England delegation. After the gentleman from Massachusetts had said that he would print tbo rest of his lomarka , there appeared : i sub-beading inserted by the gentleman himself : "Hot Shot for Mug wumps Hoar nnd Williams Showed Up "Williams' Report on Silver Coinage Hlddlcd , " [ [ .auditor. ] His ( Williams ) in quiry was u proper one , whether Iho rules permitted a congressman to edit bis speeches In the Kccord. or have Iho rtisults ns ho saw them tn his own mind blazoned to Mm world. It was the business of the committee on printing to see that such matter was not In jected uy gentleman who printed speeches they novur had uttered. Mr. Richardson of Tennessee ( chairman of tbo committee on pniillng ) , said thut the committee had no aulhorliy over the subject. Mr. Walker said that the headlines to which the gentleman objected bad been printed by mistake. Mr. Williams said that it was not his pur pose to do anything moro than to call the at tention of the committee on printing to such methods nnd to nsk to see that no such thing should happen in iho future. Unpardonable mill onViiHlir I Mr. Uichordson said that it was not in the power of the committee to prevent tbo ecu llemnn from Massachusetts from making headlines and captions en the various phrases of his speech. Mr. Williams called attention to the Ian- guago which seemed to him to bo unpardon able nml offensive in the extron.0 ; words that wcro not uttered in the heat of debate , but were printed without provocation ; words uttered only in printing and not in any other fashion. The privilosoof printingunutlorod speeches in the records wna never intended to glvo tbo power of personal insult. If proper under tto rules , tbo exorcise of that power was not gentlemanly and not parlia mentary. Mr. Williams , quoting from Mr. Walker's Fiicccb , objected to that gentleman's declara tion that tbo mugwumps in the United States had their scats "by gross deception and moral fraud. " These were at best un manly words , but coming hero under the color of having been spoken , they v.ero the more serious. The contlfinan Irom Worces ter bad quoted from the Sermon on the Mount. For a rock-fall and sky-piercing monument of blasphemy commend him to the words in which that gentleman compares nn attack upon a follow meinler to the rebuke of the Savior of men to tlio Scribes nnd Pharisees. Mr. Loud , California-Do you consider au nttack upon the mugwumns us a personal at tack J Mr. Williams Yes , I do ; because I have been there. Onolecl the Scriptures at Him. Continuing. Mr. Williams said that In ISSt ho bad done himself the honor of breaking nway from the republican party. | Demo- rootle npnlauso.J In that campaign ouo of the most dinic'tilt tasks tin * executive cora- initteo had was to curb and check the ardor und ? cal of the gentleman from Maascuhu- betts ( Mr. Walker ) , who now mndo this at- tuck upon ills former associates. [ Applause. | In 1SSI there had not been n greater mug wump than the gentleman from Worcester. And now ho hated tha mugwumps wowo than ho did the devil. ( Lauglitrr.J Ho com mended to the gentleman the sermon to which ho had referred in his speech : "Woo unto you , Scribes and Pharisees ; hypocrites , for yo compass sea nnd lund to make ono pioiclytc ; and when ho Is msdc , yo innko him two-fold moro tbo child of hull ttn.n yourselves , ( Loud and long continued laughter. ) Mr. Walker said that It was evident to the IIOLBO for what purpose the gentleman from Massachusetts ( Mr. Williams ) bad arisen , ILnuuhtor.j Ho hud nrlson ( us ho bud arisen in legislative bodies at home ) for the purpose of exhibiting himself. The Ida i of reading n bible to n democratic house [ laughter ] and thu gentleman had to read it ; ho could not repeal it. It was somelhlnt : so fresh antl so now nnd so surprlsinr that the democrats had cheered him to the echo. ( Laughter. ] It bad raised far more enthusiasm than tha gentleman could Inspire bv any remarks of bis own. Tlio headlines to his speech ( to which the gentleman had alluded ) had nut been written In his manuscript and ho was surprised when ho saw them In the record , Ho had iiot written them. lit ) Wrotu Ills O n Hpreehen. Mr. ( Vain of Texas Who writes your speeches ! | Laughter. ] Mr. ItichariUon of Tennessee Inquired whether the gentleman meant to suv that uflur his speech passed from his hands the ofllcial luportor Inserted the words or that they were Inserted at tbo government print- lug ofllco. Mr. Walker If the gentleman gives un boislng the house mid everybody else , 1 will uttcnd to my business. ( Daughter. ) Continuing , Mr. U'ulkur bald.that ho had hud several copies cf his spei-ch and his clerk had put tbo head lines to one of them. By uu accident , which was liable lo happen to any one , thut copy bad been sent to the print. Ing ofllro. In rcspousn to the gentleman from Texas ho would say that tbo neiitloman whc wrote his speech was Mr. Walker of Wor raster. | l.augbter.J Ho agreed that the headlines should bo taken out.

[ Special Tele gram to Tin : UKE.J Today the Yocum mur der trial was iho center of nttriicllon In Hastings. The district court room was not largo enough to hold the crowd who fought nnd struggled arounu the door for entrance. The witnesses for the stale and defense were separated and kept In scp.irato rooms until wanted on the witness stand. At 0:45 County Attorney Hoepner began the opening statement for the prosecution. His state ment was brief nnd dealt with the bare facts of the killing. After reading the information to the jury ho said that the stale would attempt to show that on February 'J'J , lost , Captain A. U. Yocum took the life of Myron Van Fleet in a premeditated und malicious manner. They expected to show that ho admitted commit ting the crlmo afterwards. Further they would prove that ho miulo n threat previous to the shooting that ho would kill Van Fleet before sun down. This would prove their allegations of murder. Generate. .1. Ullworiti opened for the de fense. Ho showed that the charge of murder in tha llrst dcerco comprised manslaughter and murder In the second degree , both peni tentiary offenses. Ho says n person has a right to slay a transgressor on his properly , nn assailant or who attacks the honor of his family. Van Fleet had slanderoJ Yocum's family ; Yocum hoard of It and the next day slow Van Fleet. Tbo testimony of the witnesses agreed with tbo statement published in Tin : Ur.i : at the tlmo of the trugcdv. Condensed , it showed that Yocum nud Teenier hud boon to gether on the afternoon of the Iragody , and together wont into Fred Muchow's saloon. Yocum took a drjnk of whisky , but Jolt Teenier refused to drink. Tuoy then went up to T. C. Hurst's drug store , whore Yocum was overheard to say bo would kill Van Fleet before sundown. Yocum aud Teenier went out and the two walked up nnd down the street past Van Fleet's ofllco for half an hour. Then Van Fleet starled toward homo , but stopped at a clear store and began talkIng - Ing lo a couple of acquaintances. Yocam followed and when directly opposilo the cigar store turned and , pulling u revolver from his overcoat pocket , llred four shots nt Van Fl. > ot. Van Fleet ran Into the Hotel Bostwick , a few doors away , and Yocum followed him down. A policeman arrested Yooum nnd heard htm say that ho ban done the shooting. Van Fleet was laken homo and died thera from hemorrhage a few minutes later. After establishing these facts tlu > state rested Its case. case.Tho attorneys for tbn defense did but llttlo cross-examining and wcro not inclined to dis- nuto tbc facts as given. They called but one witness today , Colonel Isaac Lo Doyt , who toilified that bo bad seen Yocum going past tun ttostwicic at various limes. As the prosecution closed its case much sooner than expected , the defense , did not have Its witnesses present to go , upon the stand this afternoon. An adjournment Wus tukcn until tomorrow. During the progress of the trial the women have been In the minority among the specta tors. Of the 03U present this afternoon not moro than twelve were ladies. The jury in tins case is ns intelligent n body as ono could wish. All are listening very attentively to the testimony and some are taking notes of the principal points. So far nil has boon plain sailing , but when the time for testimony in rebuttal comes the most interesting part of Iho casa will be manifest. Think Muttis ! GUANO ISIAND , Nob. , March IS.
