WA ntNrnoN1 , July 10. [ Special Telegram
to the UKR. ] Shortly after 1 o'clock this
afternoon llepie-ientatlvo Laird , ot Nebraska ,
met llepresontatlve Cobb , of Indiana , In the
coiridor at the southwest coinei of the floor
of the house and n quarrel aiosc out of the
landipicstlon which was hotly deputed In
the dcb.Ue between them a couple of weeks
ago , During the quanel Laird struck Cobb
a blow on the lower pint of the nose and
upper lip. U staggered Cobb and brought
the How of blood. Ueptesentatlve Parson ,
of Illinois , pie\entcd a continuation 'of tbo
It develops that Kepresenlatlves Cobb nml
Laird met In the coiridor of the house just
before they came to blows and arranged to
gu down into the basement and light out their
grievances per .Maiquls of Qucciishiny rules.
Theairangement came to the cais of Itcpie-
seutatlvo 1'ayson ot Illinois , who Is a mem
ber of Cobb's committee , and he rushed out
of the house and met the men as they weio
going do\\n the stairs. Forcibly ho
took hold of Cobb and diew
him back up to the head of the stairs and to
the entiancc of the coiridor along t.io south
side ot the house. I'.iyson expostulated with
the men and thought he had padded them ,
when Laird exclaimed excitedly , "Cobb , you
aic a d d old liar , anyway. "
"And yon aie a perjurer , and 1 can prove
It , " rejoined Cobb. Instantly Laird let HO
his left hand right over Pajson's shoulder.
The blow caught Cobb's upper lip ,
biinglng the blood. Cobb , who is six Act
tv o Inches In height , weighs 210 ! pounds , a
courageous man , was about to resent the
blow , when men separated the combatants.
There was a gicat deal of excitement about
the scene. Had the men been per
mitted to carry out their de
sign of fighting It out aiono in a room
in the basement of the capltol , their encoiin-
tci would have been terilflc. Laird is an
athlete , thiitysovenoais old , .six feet high ,
weinhs 205 pounds , ami Is brave. Laird says
ho Is satisfied to let the matter drop , but it is
believed it will bo biought to the attention ot
the house. As the affair occuried oil the floor
of the house , that body has no jurisdiction.
WA'siiiNoioN , July 10. ri'ress.J Quite a
sensation was cieated In the house this aftei-
noon by a pcisonal encounter between Hep-
lesentatlves Cobb of Indiana , and Laird ol
Nebi.iska , growing out of chaiges made by
the latter on the floor of the house to the ef
fect th.it the Nebraska member had been con
cerned In a land ling. Hepiesentativo Pay-
son of Illinois , member ot the public lands
committee , was explaining to Hepiesentativr
Gilfillan the effect of certain senate amend
ments to the bill introduced to piotect the
lights of homestead settlers , when Hep-
lesentatlvo Lalid leaned from his seat
towards the patty and a kcd , "Why don't
yon fellows deferring to the public lands
committee ) do somcthiii'.r to break up land
lings In the south Instead of raiding the
north ? " Payson replied that was what the
committee is endeavoring to do. Cobb un-
doitook to defend the committee of which bo
was chairman , and an'aiiKiy passaco oc-
curicd between him and Laird , which ended
by the latter gentleman calling the foimera
liar. Witnesses say Cobb declared Laird
did not dare come outside and
repeat his language. Laird is said
to have icpllcd that thn gentleman could not
get out soon enough for him. With this the
pair started thiough the lobby into tlio base
ment. Some one called P.iyson's attention
to their exit , with the statement that they
were going outside to light it out.
Tlioieupon Paysou hurried thiouz-h the
doorway and caught Cobb by the collar
and remonstiatcd with him for pursuing so
boyish and foolish a course , llo succeeded In
getting Cobb to letraco bis stops so far as the
west door of the lobbv. Lalid following ,
when the controversy broke out afresh. Ko-
curling to the charges Cobb had made
against him In a speech several
weeks ago. Laird angiily declared
ho ( Cobb ) was a - liar. Cobb re
joined that Lalid was a perjuier , but the
woids had hardly passed his lips bcfoie Laird
struck him a heavy blow on thn mouth and
nose. Asticam of blood trickled down Cobb's
faceand ho was thiown acalnst tlio dooi way.
The crowd which had collected Interposed at
this juncture and the combatants were sep
The bad feeling between the mcmbeis dates
back some months , and It was apparent on
the occasion when Cobb made lift charge
az.ilnfit Lalid , some months ago. that the last
named member with meat dlllleultr was
restrained from emphasising with his list the
indignant denial and defiance ho linilcd nt
his antagonist. Tliero is every leasou to be
lieve that If interfeioiico had not come in the
shape of Payson. who bought to pour oil on
tbo troubled wateis , that a .sanguinary per
sonal combat would lia\o lOMiltcd. Both ot
the mcmbeis concerned aie of poweitul
physique , and bear ttio loputatlon of men
ready at all times to defend themselves In n
fitting manner. Cobb stands six lect and
over In his slices and Is ot ptopoitlonnte
breadth , but Is somewhat nt a disadvantage
on the score of ago , being In thn neighbor
hood of ntty-elgnt or sixty yeais old. Lalul
is but tbhty-su ven yeais old , with girth ol
ebcbt that would ornament an athlete , and a
llery , impetuous temper. On the other hand ,
ho m also Mlghtly lame. Neither of the mem-
beis are willing to make a statement at this
time , and the piobablo npshot'of the oncoun'
tor is a matter of speculation among the othui
members. The opinion is expressed in sonic
quarters that the lioiiic has been outraged bj
the affray and It is a lilting subject ot invc.s
tigatlon by that body. Tlio majoiltyof mem

location ol Giief's hall and Xepf's hall , from
which thn anaiehlstspiocceded to make an
assanlton the police. 1'olico InspectorUon-
tlcld was the second \ \ Itncss called , llo was
in command of tlio police at Dosuhilnes sheet
on the night of the llayniaikel meeting. The
polleo had warning ot the assemblage
through the "ic\engo ciieular" and other
cliculars issued by tbeamuchists. Bonfield
.said the police no took with him to llay-
"What were the Instiuctions ? " asked the
states attorney . "That no one should Hie
unless ordeied to do so by his suiieiiorofliccr.
As wo appioaehed this tiuck. suld Bon-
field , indicating tlio spot on thn man , "we
marched up to it. Captain Wood , who
who as with mo said to those in the crowd :
' 1 command you In the name ot the people of

said : 'We are peaceable. ' Instantly the
ciowd paited in u vojnlhir manner. 1 thought
then I heard a hissing noUc. 1 have had
some exDcrlenco witli dvnamlto and Insc and
divined In nn instant what was gohnr to hap

look place. Then bullets weie llred Into us
for perhaps a minute or so bctoio n single

to close up and icturn the Hie. "
"How many persons were Injured bjr these
bullets , ? "
"To the best of my recollection theio weiu
slxtv. " ;
"How many have died ? "
Bon Held testified further that nt least a
hundred shots were fired from tlio crowdlbe-
loie he ordeied the lire returned. The wit
ness , cross-examined by Captain Black , said
a thousand people were at llaymarket squaio
when ho le.icned the scene. Fielden was
speaking. Captain Ward ordered the crowd
todispci.se. As Waid gave the command
Fielden said. "We .no peace.iblo. " The very
next Instant there was a hissing noise and
the explosion of the bombs.
In tne afternoon se\eral of the wounded
police were piesent. Gotfiied Waller , a Swiss
cabinet maker , was the liist witness , lie
said ho was a member of the .socialist society
lor exercising with arms , an institution
which lie left some four months ago. On the
night betoio the bomb \\as thrown witness
said he was at the hall wheio the society
usually met , in answer to an advertisement
in tlio Arbeiter Xoltniig. About seventy or
eighty men weie piesent. Witness was
chaiinmii , Fischer and Engel \\eio piesent.
They discussed tlio killing of the men at
Mei/oimlek'sniid what should be done din
ing the next lew days. Kngel introduced
resolutions that if there should bo an encoun
ter With ( he police theie should be meetings
at various I'lflafl ttX.alU-.tlfflrH . l'Hf'nvtTim
woid "lles'tr' published in the Ai belter Zui-
tiuiff , vins" to bo the signal for meeting.
If there should boa distuibanco they weie to
meet in tlio water park aimed. Then n com
mittee was appointed to watch the move
ments In the eity and icpoit if anything hap
pened , and if a riot should occur we weie to
stoimtho polleo stations and cut the tele
graph wires. Then \\e .should shoot down
everything that come against us. Then If
ono police station was stormed tlmy should
do the same with the otheis , mowliijr down
all that came. They were to commence at
the station on Xoith avenue. Kngel said it
would do to throw a bomb in the station.
Nothing was said In the meeting as to wheio
the plan oilginatcd. It was decided to call a
meeting of worklngmen next day in the
evening. Those picscnt were not to paiticip-
ate in the llayinaiket meeting. Only tbo
committee was to bo there it they should
comedown inion tlio police , then tlio milithi
whatevoi should came against them. Wit
ness said : "We also thought the flic depart
ment should be disabled. Fiist wo weio to
attack the North avenue police station , then
the next ono ns fate would Invo
it. Tlio plan was to attack the police
stations to pundit the police from coining to
their aid if theio should be a fight in tlio city.
Wo all thought theio would bo a light , and so
concoitiatcd. ; The plan was adopted wllh
the undcistandinic that every group.should
act independently accoiding to the general
plan. These piesent vteio from all gioups ,
iromallpaitsof the city. The same pro-
craniiiio was to bo cairied out In every pait
of the city. Theio was nothing said about
the llaymarket. It was not expected that
thu police should get to the Haynmikot. Only
if the strikers weie attacked , I lien wo should
shoot the police. In ea&oot an attempt to
disperse the mcetlin ; wo should simplv strike
them down however best wo could , with
bombs 01 whatever would bo at our disposal.
Ono or two tiom each gionp were to com
pose the committee to bo sent to the Hay-
market. They were to obseivo the move
ments not only in the Haymarket hut In dif
ferent paits ot the city , and if a conflict
siiould happen they should rcpoit to ns. II
it happened in thodaytlmu , then they should
eauso the publication of tlio word "Huh" ; If
in the evening , or night , they should icport
personally to tha members at their homes.
Thovtoid was the signal to meet and was
only to bo inserted in the nowspayers If n
downright revolution occuried. Fisher sug-
gesied the woid , and It was arianged that
the publication should bo made In tlio
Aibelter Xoitnng letter box. A committee
was appointed to attend to the publication.

ing. The plan was to bo stated toMichiclI-

some who came In late. "
The witness was asked : "Did yon you
over lm\oany bombs ? "
-To this Foster ot the defense objected , Ho
said any bombs the witne s might have had
had luUhing to do with the r.ve unless it
were traced to the man who throw it at the
Judge Ingham replied in a brief statement
saying that the theory of the state was that
for months tlio defendants had been pi enur
ing tor the levoiutlon about tbo first of May ;
that they had been arming themsuhes unil
their dupes. The state intended to bring
intocomt the dynamite bombs and would
show that these bombs woio used for no
other purpose In all the wldo woiId except
coxvaully and atioclous murder ,
Mr. Foster asked , "if yon dhow that some
man thiew ono of these bombs without
knowledge or authority or appioval ot an >
of these defendants , is that murdei ? " .
Mr. Ingham leplled : "Under the law of
the htato of Illinois It Is minder. The law ot
this state is strong enough to han ? every one
of ther.0 men , "
Judge Gray In deciding the point , said : " 11
theru was a combination among a gicat num
ber of individuals to kill policemen it the >
came In conflict with the worklngmen 01
