LONDON , March 0. In the house of
commons , shortly after midnight , Mr.
Halfour applied theclotureon the edu
cation estimates. The nationalists
limited "gag , gag , "and ret used to
leave the house when the division was
taken. The chairman twice asked
them to retire to the division lobby ,
but they shouted , "Certainly not. "
Mr. Falln cried , " 1 protest , against
the way all Irish votes are clotured. "
Thirty or forty Irishmen remained
in their scats. The chairman report
ed the matter to the speaker. The
Irishmen still refused to obey the or
der , and the speaker named sixteen
Mr. Balfour moved their suspension.
This was agreed to without a division.
The speaker ordered them to with-

oproar. The speaker called upon the

men entered to enforce the removal.
Mr. Eugene Crean , member for
southwest Cork , struggled de.sperately
against removal , and there was quite
a free light on the floor , lasting for T
minutes , other Irishmen assisting
ti m. Eventually he was carried out
bodily byslx policemen amid yells and
The police then returned and carried
ach of the remaining recalcitrants in
the same manner , although there was
no further actual resistance. Many ,

fcheir hands and shouted , "God save
The trouble arose through Mr. Bal
four closuring the whole education
estimates without giving an opportun
ity to discuss the Irish voice.
Those removed included John Cul-
ttnau , Patrick White , Patrick Me-
Hugh , William Lundon , William
Abranam , Patrick Dugan , Anthony
JDonelan ard James Gilhooley.
Never before had such a scene oc
cur ed in the house as accompanied
Ihe removal of Mr. Crean. He strug
gled fiercely with the attendants , who
ummoned the police , a dozen con
stables entering the house. The na
tionalists Jeered at them.
DRAGGED OUT BY MAIN FOTICE.
The nationalists fought and strug-
flee frantically , but at length asuper-
for force of police succeeded in drug-
Ing Mr. Crean out by the legs and
arms and carrying him down the floor'
f the house , the Irishmen standing
nd wildly shouting. "Shame , mur-
flerers , South African brutality. "
The speaker then called upon Mr.
He 11 ugh to retire , but. he defiantly re
fused , his companians shouting ap
proval. As the body of twenty police
gain stormed the Irish benches Mr.
Ucllugh fought , struggled and im
peded them in every way. Angry
shouts rent the air.
The benches nelow the gangway on
the opposition side were a mass of
mad and struggling humanity. Several
police i were struck with tlbts. Free
fights between the police and the
members were fairly general. As Mr.
Moll ugh was being carried out , his
underciothing showing where the
other garments had been torn a ay
tn the struggle , , Mr. Flavin shouted
from the benches , "Nineteen police to
cue lushman , " and cries of ' 'shame"
were heard from the opposition bench
es. While Mr. Cuhlnun was being re-
BIOV d , struggling violently , Mr. Pat
rick O'Brien excitedly appealed to the
speaker to "stop this most dt-stress-
lug scene. "
The speaker responded : "The'sccne
8fi certainly as distressing to me as It
can bo to the Irish members. "
Al'I'EALS KQK OKDER.
The speaker , In reply , again earn
estly appealed to the members to obey
. F the ruling of the house , whether they
' agreed witli tiie course taken or not ,
} and to leave the house peaceably and
decently. In response to this was
cries of ( > no , no , " from the national- \
fats. The speaker i lien ordered the '
removal of the , others. While Mr.
Donellan was being removed the na
tionalists rose and sang "God Save Ire-
1 laud. " Mr. Flavin shouted to the mi-
ionalists , "Youvill be carried out of
Bouth America in the same way. "
Mr. Flavin's turn then came. The
police were handling him roughly ,
amid renewed cries of "murderers , "
when he exclaimed : "All right ; I
don't Intend to hurt anybody. "
At 1 o'clock the speaker said :
"Tho house will now resume pro
ceedings , and 1 trust that the honor
able member will now leave the house. "
The Irish members shouted that
they would not leave.
The chairman again put the vote ,
adding that therere no teller and
that the ayes had it. Amid laughter

wer treaty which relates to the Nicar
agua canal and also the protocols of an
agreement for the construction of the
canal tmnle between the United States
government and the governments of
Nicaragua and Costa Rica. He de
clared that it was perfectly clear that
the protocols entered Into last fall by
this government were a distinct violation
lation of the Clayton-Bulwer treaty.
It was equally evident that the United
States must abandon Its plighted faith
with the Nicaragua and Costa Rica , In
order that the Clayton-Bulwer treaty
might be fastened permanently upon
this government and h.tng like a pall
over it or take such a stand as will

Subsequently another batch of In-

SAX JUAN , Porto Rico , March
A. serious riot occurred here Thursday.
At 0 o'clock in the evening live artil
lerymen and a corporal of artillery ,
named Hitchcock , left iholrguard past
without orders and charged across the
plaza into a street In which a mob of
people had assembled. The soldiers
llrcd a volley into the air , dispersed
the mob and rescued School Superin
tendent Armstrong , who was besieged
by a mob.
For hours previous to the rescue of
Superintendent Armstrong the city
had been overrun by a riotous crowd
of probably 1,600 persons , who shouted
"Down with the Amelcans" and
other similar cries.
The excitement originated In a trl-
vlrl school Incident Involving Superin
tendent Armstrong and Illustrating
the excitable nature of the Porto
Ilicans. The superintendent repri
manded a girl ten years of age for dis
obedience and forcibly but harmlessly
marched her to the front from the
rear of the school room. Her dress
caught in a desk and was torn and the
girl reported to nor mother that she
had been kicked and abused ,
This excited the girl's mother and
sensational stories were circulated
which caused the disturbance. Gov
ernor Allen deplores the unfortunate
occurrences , especially the action ol
the artillerymen. Corporal lliscock
has been placed under arrest and is
now In the guard house. It is prob
able he will be tried by court-martial.
The teachers who have been ques
tioned on the subject have made state
ments agreeing with those of Superin
tendent Armstrong to the effect that
the girl was not harmed
It Is probable that four-iifthsof those
who took part In the rioting did not
know why they were mobbing the
Americans. The rioters mostly be

was raised as to the right of Mr Allen
to draw his pay in the new congress
under his appointment by the govern
