HOUSE HAS A HOT DEBAFE General Defij'ency Bill Dissuuion Elicits 5ome Henhd ArTumjnts. M'MILLIN ' CRITICISES JUSTICE SHIRAS CliaraeteHr.eN an "Slnuli" the Deci sion of the Majority of the Su preme Court OM the liieome Tux Cnxo. WASHINGTON. Feb. 20. The house spent the day In discussion of the general deficiency bill , which was not finished. There was a warm debate over an amend ment by Mr. Hopkins , republican of Illinois , to take out the Item ; of $12,200 to pay mem bers ot the Fifty-third congress for amounts withheld from their flalarlea for absences In accordance with a rule adopted by that congress. Mr. Hopkins said that Speaker Crisp had enforced that rule to hold n quorum , and democrats should not apply tea a 'republican ' hou * e for reimbursement. Mr. Hopkins carried his point , 113 to G5. Just before adjournment , Mr. McMlllln , democrat of Tennessee , renewed a recent attack by him upon Justice Shlraa of the supreme court of the United States for Ills part In the Income tax decision , and Inci dentally eald that ho ws glad that It had at last got through the "thick hldo" of the Justice that ho had deprived the Amer ican people of the right to tax wealth. He spoke of the majority opinion of the court as "slush. " The Item for paying to the Southern Pa cific Railroad company a Judgment ot the court of claims , amounting to $1,310,000 beIng - Ing reached , Mr. Saycrs gave notice of an amendment to strike alt the claims of the bond-aided 1'aclfcc railroads and their branches from the bill. Thereupon Mr. Ilartlott , democrat of Now York , announced that he would defend the Eiipteme court and Justice Shlraa ngalnst attacks recently made by Messrs. Do Ar- mend and McMlllln. Incidentally , ho served notice on the democracy of the south and west that they could never expect to win so long as they Insisted on advocating an Income tax that fell upon the east and north , and In attacking the federal Judi ciary. Mr. McMlllln made a reply to Mr. Dart- lett , which created something of a sensa tion. Referring to Ills previous remarks on Jtiatlce Shlras , ho said : "I Intended It as an attack , and If It was not sufficient I stand ready to renew It at any time. " Continuing , ho said : "I hold that there Is nothing In the American government ao sa cred that I , as a representative of the American people , am not at liberty to at tack It when It goes wrong. " Turning to Mr. Uartlett. ho said : "It 111 becomes the gentleman from New York , who has taken his -bag and baggage out of the democratic- party , to dictate ta me what policies I should pursue. I am on the old camping ground , fighting the old battle. " ( Democratic applause. ) Ho referred to Justice Shlras as a "dis tinguished Individual. " and said : "No man over attacked the federal Judiciary moro strongly than did Thomas Jefferson , nnd the American people made him president. When a president sends a veto message to congress , he necessarily criticizes a co-ordinate branch of the government. What I said of Justice Shlras was that he was the man who tore down the federal constitution , and who took away frnin the American people the right of 100 years to tax the wealth of this coun try. and I repeat It today , and I am glad that I have got through his thick hide at last. " He understood that Mr. Dalzell , republican of Pennsylvania , Intended at n future tlmo to make a defense of Justice Shlras , and at that time , Mr. McMillan said , ho would present some facts regarding the clr- cumstancss under which Justice Shlras had changed his mind. For the present , he would conU-nt himself with having read the dtesentlng opinion of Justice Harlan In the Income tax case. This was being read , when Mr. Ilartlott Interrupted to ask whether Mr. McMillan would also have the majority opinion of the court read. "Oh , I don't want such slush read In my time , " Mr. McMlllln exclaimed. Mr. Dalzell gave notice that at some future - turo tlmo ho would speak on the part taken by Justice Shiras in the Income tax case. Then , at 4:45 : p. m. , the house adjourned. South Omaha News .

Corbott went out to hi ! quarters at Slmw's Springs this afternoot to stay until nftcr the big event , nnil Kltz Blmmons at once drove out to his training quarters at Cook's Itnucli , three miles fron town. Fltzslnimona was met nt the train bj half ot the population of Cnrson , nlixlous to get a gllmpso at the man who has tin courage to meet Jim Corbctt , for the lat ter , by his affable manners , since ho has been In Carson , has won over the public sentiment to hlmsolf to a great extent. Fltz- slmmons quickly pushed his way througl ; the crowd and was soon taUeli away by hi : team , It being Julian's Idea to establish him In his training quarters at once anil work with him will commence tomorrow. Corbett , as usual , this morning went over to the opera house and put In fifty-two min utes sparring and wrestling with his trainIng - Ing staff nnd gave them the hardest garni since his arrival. Ho pushed them all hot and scorned to ho not In the very best ol humor. McVcyi the wrestler , Is 111 and la not doing as hard work as ho would under other circumstances , The contract was this afternoon let fet the lumber that Is to bo used for the erec tion ot the pavilion , where the big match will take place , and the carpenters will commence work on It next week. Stuart has extracted a promise from the contractor that the build ing shall be completed before thrco weeks have elapsed and workmen will bo put on In such numbers that there will bo no dlfll- culty In carrying out his request. Am order was received from UoJIands , Cal. , this morning for a block of fifty Bents , and this was the largest of the day , although there were many other smaller ones. Fltzslmnions expressed himself to an ad miring crowd about him , while ho was waitIng - Ing for his team , to the effect that they would sec him do Corbett up In good style on the meeting , and the unsympathlzlng youngsters yelled "Hats. " FHzalmmons has not made tlm Impression on Carson people as has Corbctt , and scudmcnt hero Is cer tainly with the California ! ! , who has made friends hero during his enforced 'Idleness In this city. The continuance of the storm has kept the carpenters from finishing Corbeti's handball court , but ho will now go right along without It , nnd , oa he expressed It , "make up for lost time In short order , " when the sun again smiles. Newspaper headquarters nro being estab lished all over the city and their enormous signs across the streets can ho seen for miles.

Director General Dan Stuart's condition was reported to bo much Improved last night , and It Is thought ho will bo allowed out for an airing today. Stuart Is pleased with the announcement that there Is a prospect ot tlio Missouri legislature legalizing boxing and that a com- mlttco of that body may bo sent hero to see how' ' the big mill Js conducted , so as to be In a position to make a report. He sent the following telegram to Hcpreaeutatlve Radle. who Introduced the resolution calling for the appointment of an Investigating uommtttec : "Dear Sir : In anticipation of the passage of your resolution I have rc- jcrvcd for the use of your committee five of the best scats In the pavilion. Glad to liavo you come and Investigate. "DAN A. STUAUT. " Three things that are becoming spe- ilally noticeable about Corbott's traili ng are the Improvement In his leg york , and the great attention that Is jelng given to the blows , particularly the ipeii-glove shove at close quarters. Ho icems to be able to jump from any spot and it any angle and land In1 position to defend iilmself from a blow. This leg strength , : oo , Is enabling him to throw his body for- ivard at a very wldo angle , which , while It ; lvcs him an additional reach , allows him to : ome back from his opponent's punches with- > ut moving hla feet from their original posi- : lon lonCorbett Corbett said last night : "I feel that I am n excellent shape and am glad that my , vork Is not suffering through the change of lr and locality. I will be glad to gel out 0 the springs tomorrow. Of course the > lace Is a bit rough , not quite as Anbury > ark , but a great deal better than I could lave expected hero , and It will suit me as veil.

Special. ) The prospect for close competition at the coming athletic and oratorical contests bo- ' .wccn the several universities and colleges if the state , which will occur at Mitchell , Iay 18 nnd 19 , Is very good , oven nt thin jarly date. There will probably bo at that tlmo ono of the fiercest contests that has over been witnessed In this state. For a number of yearn past the several denomina tional and minor state Institutions have- seemingly banded together with the direct purpose of "doing up" the State university. Some years they have nuccecdeil quite well , and again they have , ono nnd nil , been moro or less defeated. The nnlvprfilty of the fitatu has never been very strong In oratory , and as a result the first place In the oratorical contcut has not often fallen to that InKtltn- tlon. In the athletic contcpta , however , the palm has been repeatedly carried off by the university boyo. The last meet at Yankton , however , was an exception , tilnce there wan a determination on the part of both t.ie Judge and the other contesting studonlx to n'mt the unlvcrolty boys out entirely. Already reports are being circulated In the different collugu papers nf the state of the active preparations for the various conteyU ) . The time ha ? como when the contests are not merely of n local nature , but , on the other hand , they liavo become of great Interest throughout the state. .Seerediry tn ( iniie. CHICAGO , Feb. 20.
