WAWISOTOX , O. C. , March 21. It Is likely that u radical reform in the matter of the privilege afforded member. } of extending their spacchoi in the Houord will result from the Investigation Into the transgressions of Mr. Walker of Massachusetts. Ever since the session opened there has boon n warm political rivalry between the republican nnd democratic representative. ! of the Bay state , nnd Mr. Walitor at times has had sovcral lively bouts wlthMojsrs. Hoirand Williams. Willlumt' Uiijmrllnmcntnry Itpiunrki. Near the oloiu of hH tarllT speech In tbo house last weak Mr. Walker had Just reached nn Impassioned flight ot oratory when his tlmo ot debate expired under the rules. As Is the custom the house Indulgently granted him leave to extend his spaocb In the Hocord. Ho did oo In a very lavish manner and added elaborations to the speech by requesting the insertion of headlines calculated to rivet the attention of the reader , such as "Hot Shot for Mug wumps : Hoar nnd Williams Shown Up , " etc. In addition lo this Mr. Waluor , in his extended speech , charged tno speaker with gag-rule methods , accusing him of having packed the coinage committee with the lioo colnnco men nnd boldly asserted that the democratic representatives from Massachu- HCtts li.ul gained their scats by fraud. Immediately after the appearance of this speech in the Hecord .Mr. Williams called attention to what ho assorted was an Infrac tion of the rules nnd , alt r n lively debate , Mr. Walker's whole speech wa.i referred to the committee on printing , with int > tructlons to report on Its propriety and us to wnethor It should bo stricken from the Congressional Hecord. Ordered It Stricken from Iho Hecord. The committee today submitted a report which reviews the speech in dctiil nnd pre sents a a resolution , declaring that Iho house , dooming it its duty to see that tbo courtesy nnd decorum demanded by parliamentary law and practice should characterize tbo debate and conduct of members nt all times in their otllcial relations , hereby expresses Its disapproval of the unparliamentary lan- auago used by lion. Joseph Walker , n rep resentative ot Massachusetts in that pot- lion nf his speech printed In the Hecord of tbo 17th Inst. , but which was not dcliveiod nn the floor , and considering it impracticable to separate the unp.irllamcntury portions of the speech from such parts ns may bo parlia mentary , recommends that Iho whole of Iho undelivered portion of the speech bo ex punged from tbo Hecord. Mr. Uoutciio ot the ropuolicau side ob jected to the consideration of the report and Chairman Hlchardson of the committee on printing finally agreed that it should bo printed In tbo Hecord nnd bo culled up for consideration tomorrow. Tboro is little doubt that Mr. Boutollo nnd other republicans will defend Mr. Walker , although the report of the committee recom mending the eradicating of tbo remarks was unanimously concurred in by both Hides. Mr. Enloo stated that ho bad information that there wns a ring in the coast survey , and presented a resolution asking for u state ment on the subject uy the secretary of the treasury. Passed. Army Appropriation lllll. Tbo house then went into committee of the Vtholo on the army appropriation bill. A long discussion took place during the consideration ot the bill over a point of order raised by Mr. Cruin ol Texas against a proviso vise In the bill , that hereafter no money np- preprinted for nrmv transportation shall be used in tlio payment of transportation ol troopi nnd supplies of the army over the non- aided lines owned , controlled or operated by tbo Union Pucillo railway or by theSonthcrii Pacific over lines embraced in Us Pacific system. The chairman , In the cloar-cut language which always charactcrl/.os his remarks , sus tained the point of order , the principal ground for his decision being that the proviso vise made a permanent law. Then Mr. Outhwalto offered an amend ment mailing the same provision , but making It apply only to the present bill. This wan agreed to and the committee hav ing arisen the bill was passed. f. Considered the Free Wool lllll. . The house Ibon wont into committee of the whole , Mr. Blount In the chair , on the free wool bill. Mr. Goodnight assailed the protection sys tem. tem.Mr. . Snodgrass of Tennessee consumed his tlmo In opposition to the bill donating $5OUO- 000 to the World's fair. Ho contended thut representatives in congress in making this appropriation would violate the constitution and would do so in direct violation of the oath which the members took at the bar ol the houso.

WASHINOTOX , D. C. , Mirjh 21. Mr. Tsui xwo Gin , the Chluoso minister , hai prepared a letter to tbo secretary of state urging an ently response W the various communica tions that the Chinese government has sent to Hits government , with reforonej to the re striction of Chlncsu tmmlgratija. Owing to the continued illness ot Mr. tilnlno the latter lias not been scon , but there is ht'.lo doubt that it will bo forwarded to the State de partment within n very few days. The Star tonight prints nn Interview with the minister In which he says : "For several yean , iu fact over since I have been In this country , I have boon endeavoring to seeuro bettor treatment 'for my people at the hands of the United Stains. To this end I have for warded a number of letters to the State depart ment statlni ? our position , but as yet I have received no satisfactory answer. If the United States wishes to put n atop to Chlnow Immigration it should be done by moins of a trcaly with my country. For the United States to agree to n treaty providing for Ilia admission of Chinese and then to override it by congress is hardly acting in good faith. Ono sldo has nil to say and the other side is not considered nt all. By your constitution you encourage Immigration nud insure fair treatment of nil alike , and yet your treatment of the Chinese is inconsist ent with the constitution nud the principles laid down bv George Washington. " "Thoro is ono quotlion I would like to nsk you , " said the reporter. "If the UniUd Stales puts further restriction on Chinese immigration will China exclude Americans from her territory i" The answer was u long tltno lu coming and was n ulplomaiio ono : "It seems to mo that the Amencani should consider the situation uud withdraw from China of their own free will. I will answer your question by asKing you ono. Suppose that the American minister in London should say to Iho Chinese minister : 'You keep nwn > from the American legation. I uou't want you here. ' Do you think iho Cninoso minis ter would visit thn legation again , nnd do you think the minister would expect much 01 a welcome at the Chinese legation I You may draw your own inferences. The Amer ican people are talking a great deal about reciprocity just now. They should remember - bor that reolprpcU.v works two ways. " STIM. A IMtOl-'OUXU SUCUUT.
