an InvcHtlKatiiiK committeo ho replied

Tho house roared and tho galleries
shouted, nnd tho familiar wordo "Great
laughter" appeared in Tho Record next
Our tlmt good laugh was when Mr
Doutello poked fun nt Economist Hob
man, comparing him to Mrs. Saucer,
who gathered tho hoys nliout Iter at
DothelKiys hall and administered to
them with n long 8jM)on their doses of
brimstone and treacle (retrenchment and
reform), for tho purpose of breaking
down their aptietitcs and Having provi
sions, between these first anil last laughn wo
have hnd hundreds more.
Young Mr. Uryau, of Nebraska, raised
many it laugh while talking tariff.
"My friend front Maine (Mr. Dingley)
seriously nays tho tariff ou wool has
mado more pounds of wool grow on tho
sheep's back." To an opponent who wi
terrupted him Bryan said, "You are
welcome to all tho timo you want if you
will only talk in that way." Mr. Bryan
told one of tho In-st stories of tho ses
sion. A white Imy proposed to H col
ored boy that they go cahoots on coon
hunting. Tho colored boy wns to fur
nish tho dog and climb tho tree, while
the whito boy was to do tho "hollering."
The colored loy accepted, nnd in this
way they caught three coons. When
they caino to divide the white Imy took
them all. "What do 1 got?" asked tho
black boy. "You get the cahoots!"
Bryan likened the Manufacturers who
pretended not to want uioro tariff to the
maiden lady who said to herself: "This
is tho third time my beau has called
nnd ho may make some demonstration,
If ho does I havo mado up my mind to
bear it with fortitude." Mr. Bry
satirized tho river and harbor bill by
proposing an improvement for tho Platte
river, in his state. "It has no commerce
now," he said, "but that fact alone u
sufRclont evidence that it needs improv
lug. If tho present tlow of water were
confined In iv stone wall thirty feet wide
and twenty feet deep there would bo suf
ficient water to carry ou extensive com
inerce, and if necessary wo could sink
artesian wells to get more water at the
west end of tho river."

by the cities. Who denies than
Mr. ntutfhaui 1 do.
Mr. Moses No suno man could deny It
Mr. Uluguaiu-I deny It.
John Allen, of Mississippi, has bee::
rather quiet this season. In discussing
nn election case he raised one good laugh
by telling of a colored voter of his towu
who on every' election day took up his
stand near tho polls nnd waited for what
over might turn up. One timo he waited
und waited in vain, nnd finally, becom
ing Impatient, exclaimed: "Gentlemen,
I is about to vote) Doe any gentleman
wish to sjwak to me?"
Mr. Payne, of New York, talking tariff,
was asked about wages in 1840. "Well,
I havo not studied the question of wages
hack to the time of tho flood." Mr.
Barter asked Mr. Payue if he might in
terrupt him. "Certainly," said Mr.
Payne; "it rests me."
Mr. Dolliver, of Iowa, told of a barber
of his acquaintance who knew every
thing and had a cheerful way of letting
go of it. On another occasion Dolliver
was closely pressed by Mr. Bynum for
explanation of certaiu figures which the
former had given. "I am a philosopher
now," said Dolliver, "and do not care to
go into details."
Mr, Turner, of Georgia, said very neat
ly, "The people- would rather see well
that respecUiblo gentleman whom we
name with reverence, because we do not
know what may happen to us, than thi
Mr. Kilgore, of Texas, raised a good
many laughs during tho winter, Onci
he was objecting to a war claim, when
the friend of the bill said the item foi
2,000 bundles of oats at five cents n bun
dle was a reasonable charge at that time.
"I don't know," said Kilgore, "I did nol
feed ou nuts; I was in tho foot cavalry.'
Kilgore gave a member permission to in
terrtipt him if ho woull not mala'
ipeecli. "I do not want your speech
go thundering down tho age with mine.
Mr. Bowers, of California, has made
his share of fun. Tho house laughed n,
him when ho discussod river and luu ho:
appropriations, saying: "I Imvo us ninii
rivers and harbors In my district as these
gentlemen from Now York, Louisiana
incL Florida, who Imvo lieou getting so
much. I am in favor of reform on theli
part. As I understand It, unless I can
get a 'pull' ou tho committee 1 ain't in it,
nor my district, either. Now, I want a
nhow." On another occasion Mr. Bowers
warned his Democratic friends tlmt their
iMilley of economy was a mistake. "You
can't win with tho hand you hold," he
declared; "you havo got to draw und
till, or you will Imi lieaten,"
Tho houso laughed when tho speaker
tried to convince Mr. Pickler, of South
Dakota, that ho was not in order and
should not speak. "Tho gentleman has
not the lloor," said the chairman. "In
deed I havo," replied Pickler, "1 am on
tho floor with my resolution."
Tho houso often had occasion to laugh
nt Mr. Walker, of Massachusetts, for
thn hammer and tongs stylo of his ar
guments. In a tarilT discussion some
one quoted Senator Kvarts on him,
thinking such high Republican author
ity would sllonco him, Walker Wing
also a Republican. But Walker wan
equal to tho emergency. "EvartHt" ho
exclaimed contemptuously; "what does
Evarts know about It?" Ho added that
lawyers outsldo of tho houso were like
lawyers In it thoy know all about law
and everything else. Blaino was also
quoted against him. "What do I euro
about James O. Blaine!" rotorted Walk
er. Mr. Walker having siiokeii of hoiiio
of tho young memlierrt from Massachu
setts us being "fresh, very fresh," and a
point of order lcing raised against such
language, ex-Speaker Reed remarked in
his droll way, "The point of order does
not seem to bo well taken in point of
Tho houso laughed till Its sides ached
lit what was tho liest story and hit of
tho Besslon, told by O'Forrnll, of Vir
ginia, ut tho expense of Bourko Cockrati.
The latter had just made it speech in his
usual splendid voice, but without going
very deeply Into tho merits of tho ques
tion, when O'Ferrall said ho wuh re
minded of a man who was overtaken at
night in a lonely road by a thunder
storm. Ho could see his way only by
occasional Hushes of lightning. Finally
n terrific peal threw him to his knees,
when ho lifted up his arms and ex
claimed, "Lord, if it is all the same to
you, I'd like to have n little more light
and not quite so much noise!"
