Mi. Ueed of Maine The icpoit Is being
acted on nml cannot be wltlidiavvn.
The speaker held that as the icport was
niado to the house bv older of the committee. ,
it could not be withdrawn without le.ive ot
the house. ( Applause on Hie leptibllc.ui
Mr. IJecd I suggest thai the. gentleman
fiom Alabama allow Ihe amendment lo be
olfeicd by my colleague.
Mi. Herbert I bavo no instiuctlons to al
low any amendment.
Mi. Heed The gentleman can allow
amendments to be olfeicd.
Mr. Ik'ibeit 1 decline to allow nny to bo
ofteied. The icsolullon embodiesstibstnu -
tinilvnll thoiiiquliles In the original icsolti-
tlon ami I move n call of the house.
Mr. lloutelle luqiilied whether the gentle
man had stated tliu committee h.ul Instinctcd
htm to call the pluvious question.
Mr. lleibeit 1 made no such statement.
Air. Houtellc He AVU.S not so llistiueted.
Mr. . Herbeit 1 made no sudli statement.
The republicans opposed the motion in * a
call o ) the house , but Itwns oulcied by a uilc
.of yeas tKl ; noes I2ii.
. On motion ol Mi. lleiboit , ajcsolullon was
adopted dliecltng the seigeant-nt-nimsloni-
lest and bring to the barol thu house such
membeisas weiu absent without leave.
Mi. lleibeit Immediately moved that all
fuither pioceedlngs under the call be dis
pensed with. The sole question which now-
existed was tlie question of liberty ol debatp.
No unieasonablc Ifmu was asked by the mi-
noiity. It could not be that the gentlemen
on the other side , with a majoiily ol foity ,
weiedesltuusof snppiesMng debute for fear
of any consequences. No linrm cvci cnmc in
a fivecountiy liom a fiee discussion of a
legitimate piimositiun. Mr. Huiburt stated
the rules ol thu house prcscilbed a reasonable
time for debate on a resolution ot this cliai-
acter. Tidily minutes weie allowed lit teen
lor each side after thepievlousquostlon was
otdered. It was simply a lesolutlon of in-
( itiirv , and theie was nothing to debate until
tlio Inmili v had been anawoied.
Mi. Ifeed suggested that the committee on
naval allaiis had added aiiiimcudment to the
resolution , which debate would show to bo a
mistake nml eiithely lutlle.
Mr. Huibcitreplied his side of the house
was eiilliely willing to accept the consequences
quences ot any mistnkcwhich might ho niado
by amending the icsolutlon. II an addi
tional InquliywnH made lutlle , the answer of
the seoietarv of tlm navy would show it.
Mr. Itecd insisted tlie house had the light
to debate any question coming befoiu U , and
It vvni not foi tiny man or nn > set of. men to
decide whether the proposition was n pioper
one to be discussed.
Mr. Ilpwlttof Now Yoikameed with Mr.
Iteed In maintaining thu freedom ot debate.
Mr. Heed's motion was voted down , and
after n short wait. Iho soigeant-nl-aims
brought to the bar of tliu house Messrs. Low
den. Itiggs and Hingham.
Attei being consldeiably giijccl by their
associates , tlm excuses niusunted by thuso
gentlemen wciu deemed satlsfnutoiy and
they weio released liom custody.

Thu pi ev ions question was then ordered

Then commenced a political debate which
was opened by Mr. IJoutello , who piemised
his diiect speech upon the lesolutlon with a
remaik calling attention to the fact that the
iirst leglslallv o act of thu bouse had been the
passage , by unanimous consent , of a bill ic
moving tlio political disabilities ot an ex-
confeduiatc who had waited inoio than
twenty jeais before discovering bis desho
to bo placed In the line of eligibility to an
appointment under the executive dcpattiiicnt
ot the Untied States. In contiast w I ( lit his ,
bu ( lioutellu ) had bcun Intormed that lilteen
minutes time was ample allowaneo In which

dismissal of disabled veterans ot the union

removal ot the Inscilpllons commemoratlvo
of the success of the union aiuiy. A Noi-
folk paper had stated that Commaiidanl
Ttiixton , In place ot censmc , was entitled to
praise. Tlm paper said when ho had taken
charge ot the Noitoik navy y.ud , ho had
found insciiptlons Intended to keep alive
tlioblttei meiiioilcs of civil stilfe , and | iad
patriotically oiduied them to buiumoved.
Mr. lioutello then luleried In the rcmova
of thu siipeilntendeiit of machinery at the
navy raid because of liN demiming to the
defacement of the diy dock , and thu appoint-
incut of a man whoio title to thu position

My earliest.recollection , of dueling con
nected with tlie poker-table goes back to
U few j cari aflei'the war. I was an un
willing spectator of a trairedy on board
of n Hod Uivcr steamboat thai will haunt
my 1110111013 until I die. The railroads
that now reach in all directions through
Te.xas were not built , except on paper ,

Shreveport , a city nt the head of mxvigtt-
lion on Uetl iiiver and not far from ( he

of 7.r > 0 miles. It took thico or four days
to make the down tilp in high water anil
a Week in low water. Laige droves of
cattle weie cruelly huddled together on
the boiler decks of sleainboats and
shipped to New Orleans. The owneis
took cabin passage and beguiled the
time phi v ing cards , it was a poor tiip
down that did not carry u bundled cabin
passengers and atloul several big g.tmos' '
of poker. The captains of the boats al
ways phned , to show their hospitality
and give tone to the games. In Septem
ber , 137 , I look nassago on the Daisy
I'loom for the Crescent City.Vo bail
over a hundred passengers' , ! ! 10 head of
cattle and 1,000 bales ot cotton. The
owner of the cattle , lloger O. Simnson.
was a large , line-looking limn , about ! M
ycaisold. Ho was a typical Texan as
they were in those days , vvoio sombrcio ,
bell-spurs , buckskin leggings and the
inevitable six-shooter , lie deposited
what cash he had with the cjcik of tlio
boat , ami then gave instructions to two
Me.xican greaseis who had charge of his
cattle on biMid. As lie tin ned to go to
his stateroom a flashily ilre Td man , ac
companied b.y a woman with a handsome
face , passed him on their way to the
clink's olliqo. 1 noticed that lie gavo. a
start of surprise , but instantly checked
himself and coolly walked down the
cabin. After supper a number of tables
wore arranged in the f i out pait o | the
gentlemen's cabin and several poker
gaiue.s started. The captain of the bout ,
thu llashly dressed man an several oth-
el's formed one party. An' imitation
wai extended to Simpson to play , but he
refused. Now and then ho watched UK ?
game , but said nothing. The handsome
woman sat behind the captain and
seemed lo be leading Ji book. Her hus
band said the game would have to go on
without him unless his. wife was piescnt.
"That li one of her hobbies , gentle
men , you know , to keep tin eye on me , "
ho said in explanation.
The players thought it queer that his
wife should desire to be present , but said
nothing. The iirst night out lu.sitlted in
the captain's losing several thousand and
the others a few hundred dollars. The
flashily-dressed man had w underfill luck
and seemed to know just whfm to bet.
The captain said to Mr. Simpson the
ne.xt day that he wanted lo get even tlmt
night , but that he would not play if Iho
woman read a novel at his elbow.
"That is just it , captain , " icplied the
Texan. " 1 am dying to take a hand , but
dnrn me if I can have any luck when a
woman is present. Ten to one she is
giving that husband ot her's shin * . . "
Both agreed to ask the husband to
keep his wife away or ol.so the game
would not go on. Ho pioniisod to try
nnd coax her to stay in her state-room in
the ladies' cabin. After an hour or . = < >
he came with the good news lhal his
wife would not witness the game. Tlie
Texan said little to him buj'ond the fact
that bo intended to play a big game or
none at all. Just after supper , befoie
the table was prepared , Simpson took me
aside and asked mo to do him a favor.
Anything that was compatible with hon
or and that lay in my power 1 agreed to
do for him.
"I want you to slay by mo to-night ,
and and well , promise mo you will not
leave until Ihc game is concluded , " ho
said , in slow , measured tones ) .
"Why ? " I asked.
"Well , I was not always a rough cattle
man. Years ago I lived in Virginia.
When I graduated from college 1 began
to practice law and was uiistiecessiul.
I loved a beautiful > oung woman , and
would have married her in n week hud
she not lied with tlie man 1 hated. He
won her by lies ! Yest lies that he told
about mo , black as night and ciucl. 1
gave up the law anil went to Tevas ,
where I have prospered in thocattlo
business. 1 think this flashily attired
gambler is the man who tan away with
my butiothcd. I heard ho doseited her.
Till" * woman willi him does not resemble
the girl 1 loved , and it it is .she , time lias
changed her wonderfully. "
1 intimated that this had nothing to do
with tlio game.
"No , oh , no. Hut I have a premonition
tlmt this man is ho and lhat 1 .shall settle
old . "
1 shook his hand and piomisctl to act
sqnarcl.v as his Iriend. I did not an
ticipate trouble , for poker-playing was
indulged in to a great extent ami few-
fatal lostilts wcro chronicled.

Tlie Imagination. .
The man of iniaginalion that is to say ,
of liaviiig.scenaleafand.il drop
of wntnr , can construct the forests , the
riveis and tlio seas. In his presence all
t he eatai nets , tall and fo.tin , the mist * rise ,
the clouds foim and float.
To iciilly know one fact is to know its
kindred and its neighbois. Shakespeare
looking at u coat of mail instantly im
agined tlio society , the conditions that
produced it , and what it produced. ' Ho
saw the castle , the moat , thu drawbridge ,
the lady in the tower , and the knightly
lover spurring over the plain. _ He saw
tlie bold baron and the riido retainer , the
trampled serf , and nil the glory and the
grief of Ipudal lite.
The man of imagination litis lived the
lifool all people , of all races. Ho was u
citiren ol Athens in the days of Pericles ;
listened t | > the eager eloqucncei the
gieat orator , and i-al upon the. clil ! ' , and'
with tlie tragic poothcard "the iniiltitmlt-
nou's laughter ol thosua. " Ho savvSoc-
talcs thrust the spear of question through
the shield and liuart of lalsehood ; was
p/escnl when the gieat man drank hem
lock anil met the night of death tranquil
as the star incuts morning. Ho lias lol- '
lowed the peripatetic pliilosophcr.s and
haXbcou pu//ledbytho sophists. Helms
watched Phidias as ho chiseled shapcles *
stonuXlo foims of love and awe ,
Ho lilvs lived by the slow Nile amid the
vast ajiinupnstions. Ho knows tliu very
thought tlMt , wrought the form and '
features of the Sphinx. Ho has heard
gioat Monition's morjiing song , and bus
lain him down with'tho embalmed.and
waiting dead and felt within their dust ,
the expectation ot another Jilo miugled
with cold and sullocating doubts the-
children born of long delay , Ho-Jias
wilkcd the vvavs of mighty Koine , ' ; ind
has seen gicat Ciesir | with his legions in . '
the field , ami has stood witli vast , ilmi
motley thiongs ami watched the triumph
umph- ) given to victorious men , followed
1 > 3 unctowned kings , thu captuicd Hosts ,
and all Iho spoils of ruthless war. Ilo
lias heard the shout thai shook the Cell
fceiim'h 1'oollp.ss walls when from the reel-
in-I gladiator1 * hand thoshort sword fell ,
while from his. bosom gushed the stioam
of wasted life.
lie has lived the lifo of savage men ,
has trod the fotcsl'n silent depths , and in
thodesppi'ato giimo of life or death has
matched his thought against thu instinct
ol tlio beast.
He knows.all crimes nnd all rcgnits , all
virtues and their rich towards. He lias
been victim and victor , pursuer and pursued -
sued , outcast and king has hcaul Iho
applause and curses ol the world , and on
his heart have iallen all the nights and
noons of failure and success.
Ho knowb the unbiokcn thought ) ) , tlio
dumb desires , and wants tmd wa\sof
beasts. Ho has felt the douching tiger's
tlulll , the tenor of the ambushed pioy ,
and with tiio eagles ho hits binned the
ecstaoy of flight nnd jioiso and swoop and
ho has lain with sluggish serpents on the
barren rocks , uncoiling slowly in tlie
heat of noon.
Ho had sat beneath tiio bo tree's coii'
