Then McCloskey saw the Mlasotiriun

Mr. Hull is ti man of large stature,

Reforo Mr. Money could recover

At this juncture McCloskey, who

Mr. Money stood against the wall,

tuliftn to a eoniiuiltee room on the
Moor below, while Mr. Hall walked
calmly nlong thu corridor to the hall
of thu House.
Thu blood from Mr. Money's wound
dropped on the marble tloor as he wus
half curried down thu steps, anil n
great crowd immediately congregated
und there was much excitement.
The details of the causo of the en
counter wetu hard to obtain. Mr.
Hull, when seen Immediately after
the light, s.ild that he did not desire
to make a statemen'. "It was a per

Hall had dellveied himself of an

whereupon he said that many of those
who were opposed to thu lull did not
believe in tlio viuvs they advocated.
This angered Mr. Money, and taking
the remark as a personal iunult he
called Mr. Hull a "d liar." Then
the fracas followed.
Thu occupants of the room, know
ing the shooting proclivities of the
Money family, expected to bee him
draw "a revolver, but he was probably

Further trouble between thu two

A friend of Mr. Money who was in
the room bald: "Mr. Money was look

and began discussing a bill before the
committee relating to thu rank of
uuvul engineers. Mr. Money took
part in the discussion, mid though his
voice wur pitched as it usually Is in
controversial tone, he was in nowise
excited. Mr. Money made a state

added, binlllngly, '1 take that back:
not command, but rank.' 'Any man
who bays that,' said Mr. Hall, angrily,
Buys what Is not true.' 'You ure

partly rising from his chair.
Mr, Money roso to his feet and Mr.
Hull grabbed an ink well and hurled

IlAiiniHiirito, I'd., April 24. Senator
Quay left for Washington at l':ln this
morning, resisting the importunities
of his friends that he remain until
after the Republican Slate convention.
While he was here he was continually
besieged by visitors and It was noec.s
wiry for him to hide himself in order
to obtain rest. 111? action in ilecid lug
to succeed himself as statu ehalrm.in
robbed to-day's convention of much of
its interest. It Is generally believed,
however, that he will reliuipiish tho
chairmanship after the national con

do, for the delegates held u caucus lust

I). Stevens, chairman of the national
advisory committee of the A. I'. A.,
has rcturnciWroin Cincinnati very en
thusiastic over the prospects for tin
coming national campaign, in which
he said that the A. P. A. would play a
most important if not decisive part.
When Linton's boom was mentioned
Stevens said: "The statement attrib
uted to Mr. llutina that he did not re
fusu to meet our committee at Wash
ington is maliciously false. We waited
outside of his room for nearly im
hour while Mi. Thompson of our com
inittcu was pleading with Con-
gicssman llrosvenor to Induce Mr.
Htinna to see us. Hit- would
not do it anil not only that, but
virtually insulted the committee in
the language of his refusal to meet it.
Mr. Thompson was not the only one
who went to him. We enlisted Ser-geant-at-Aruis
II. F. Russell in our be
half. He met with no greater success,
and then Mr. Linton himself went to
Mr. (Jrosvenor and was lobull'ed him
self in u similar manner. The eon
test which our organization is making
against McKInliy's candidacy is not
directed against him personally.
Wo have no grievance against him
ns u man, but wo are lighting him,
anil will continue to tight him at the
convention and nt thu polls, because
his public tecord is not consistent w ith
our standard of oillelal ehaiactcr.
Mr. Linton is onu of the acknowledged
leaders of our organization and will
be our esndidate for the I'lesidentlal
nomination at thu Republican con
vention, nil repot ts to the contrary
notwithstanding. We think he will
have us strong backing ns any man in
the Hold. One thing is certain in my
opinion and that is Mr. MeKInley will
not be nominated for the Picsidoncy."

dungcr of annihilation and linaL'y ic
treated to the town.
Aeeoiding to the ollleial report the
llritish force, shortly after midnight,
was quietly called to arms, and, with
out apparently alarming thu native
purl of the town, 100 men, under Cap
tains Napier and Duncan, with one
Maxim rapid lire gun, and a Hotehkiss
quick tiring gun. belonging to the
llagthip St. George, gathered oiuside
of thu barbed wire defenses, wete
served with a ration of rum unil
started for a tltisli at the Matabcle
lines. Swords and nil flattering lie
coutieiueuts weie iluadened with cloth
and thu feet of the horses of the ad
vance guanl were eoveied with strong
back'ng. About daw a the column ar
rived within striking distance of the
Mututieles who wcic quietly camped
behind their stone topped earthwori.s,
about four miles from lluluwavo.
The Malabele pickets, although sur
prised by the advance guard, rimed
thu ahum and thu troopers in advance,
charged and shot down many of thu
llceing natives. '1 he main body of the
troopers then galloped forward in
line style to the support of their com
lades. ISy this time it was getting
quite light and tin Mntitbeles had
sprung to tu ins nil along the line. As
the llritish advanced Ihey were ie
cuived by a bcattt ling rdle lire from
behind the cai thworks, but the ad
vance guard charged riht up to the
mounds and spurted their horses over
them lu beveral places,

Then the Matabeles charged in
force und diove the advance guard
back and, being met by the main
body of troopers, firo was opened by
thu rapid tire guns at about Km yards
on thu .Matauele position. Tins was
kept up until broad daylight, when it
wus found that ammunition was be
ing waste 1.
Just previous to the general advance
on the Matabele position, the two
rapid lire guns were again set to work
and for about ti quarter of an hour
they wore muito to sweep the Mata
bele position in fiout of the llritish
force Then a charge was ordered
and there was a ptolongcd period of
sharp lighting at close quarters with
pistols, rillus, shotguns, war clubs,
bpeais and knives. Itoth sides fought
bravely, though It was a e.isu ot a
handful of well armed whites against
a small army of badly armed Mata
beles. GinJiiully the .Matabeles,
pressed onward by sheer force of num
bers, almost surrounded the llritish,
who letreated, lightiug bravely. Ono
Miiad for a time was quite cut olT.and
only extricated itself by a brilliant
charge through the Matubele cordon.
Finally the British, very hard
pressed, gave ground fast, but, rallied
by Napier and DtuicMi, they again
assumed the orteusive und drove back
the swaims of natives under n well
directed lire. Then a squ.id of trcop
eis, charging with a cheer, threw the
Matabeles into confusion and the
llritish were apparently getting the
upper hand and slowly forcing the
enemy backwurd, when suddcnlv the
retreat was ordered and the llritish
moved back to lluluwujo. which place
they reached, considerably the worse
for w car and tear.

Much heroism was displayed by in
dividual llritish troopers mid volun
teers In reseuinp their wounded com
rodes. One trooper 13 bald to have
charged alone close up to tho Mata
bole's works, to have picked up a
wounded friend, drugged htm upon his
saddle and retreated after emptying
the magar.ino of his rllle at the enemy.
Another trooper stood over a fallen
comrade and. with the stock of his
ritle, beat oil' the natives until both he
nnd his ft lend wero rescued by a
ehnrge of their comrades
The lots of the enemy is sultl to have
been very gieat. No correct estimate
could bo' made, but the reports place
thu number of Matabeles killed at be

to be more severe than the command
