Interrupted by members, took place between tho tn i officers. Scenes of violence which lasted fully three-quarter of an hour, nnd whleh l.i cludcd two separate encounters between Speaker Martin T. Pratt and Speaker Pro Tern W. J. Wood, threw the lower house of the Wyoming legislature Into hopeless confusion Just before noon to day, absolutely no parliamentary order obtained, and the scene was only ended by an agreement among the. members "n the floor, when cool-headed leaders of either faction announced an agreement to let mattom stand Just as they wero until 2 o'clock this afternoon.

The Immediate occasion of the trouble was tho attempt of Speaker Pratt to call I to tho chair F. C. Hunter, republican, of Carbon county. -An appeal had been taken from the speaker's ruling upon tho offer of substitute committees by tho democrats for those he had submitted and in which ho himself held the balanco of power upon tho two important commit tees, rules and elections. Mr. Hunter took the chair and Pratt went to Hunter's seat on dho floor. Judge Metr, democrat, arose and declared that the speaker could not designate any other than the speakor pro tern to take the chair and called upon Representative W, J.. Wood of Crook, county, 'speaker pro tem and V democrat, to preside. This Wood proceeded to do nnd Hunter yielded the chair to htm. Pratt Attacli "Wood. Thereupon- Pratt started to resume the-" ctialr hlmcelf. Wood sat staunchly in his' plaoe until Pratt, grasping him by tho shoulders -with both hands, throw him violently off the platform. Wood struck on both hands and hts face, but promptly arosq and rushed bade to the chair again. The men grasped each other until Chap lain Davidson apd others on the platform held them momentarily. Wielding his gavel, which he had gotten hold ofi in the melee, Pratt declared the house adjourned. Having the prestige of thq speaker's chair and using a paper weight for a gavel, Speaker Pro Tem Wood shouted to the sergeant-at-arms to close the doors and allow no one to leave. Ho then called for a roll call on the appeal motion. Standing over the chief clerk, gavel In hand, Pratt, forbade the calling of the roll, Hoth sides wero llnod and pandemonium reigned on. the floor of the house as well as on the platform.

Another climax followed In ten min utes after the first violence between the speaker and speaker pro tem, when, with several backers on ctlhcr side, lh--y clashd and Pratt attempted to get his own chair In place of tho clerk's chair he hnd appropriated for the time being. At tempting to Interfere, Representative Sproul, who had heretofore been closer to Pratt In counsel than any other dem ocrat, was soundly kicked in the stomach by the speaker.
