[ 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 trouble. 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. ANOTIinil ACrOL'XT. 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 arated. 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 bers who are disposed to talk about tlio mat terho'.d ' that the encounter did not occur or the floor , and the house is in no wise con cerned in It. _ _ Cnr Drivers' Htrlko la Frisco.

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.

A committee was appointed to attend to the publication. 1 only know ono of tlio committee , Kiaemer. All present at the meeting ac cepted the nlan. They ted by raising hands. Kngle put the question to the meet ing. The plan was to bo stated toMichiclI- able man as were absent. 1 reported it to 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 llaymarket. 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 stilkers , orwere attempting to enfoico law and order and piepaiatloiiB weie made tc kill the policemen on borne biicli occasion , tin decision as to when the proper occasion had eomo being loft to the parties who were to dt the work , and some of these paitles did suet an act , then all engaged in tne general con spiraey are equally liable. " The witness then proceeded to answer lh < question as to whether ho over had an ] bombs , and told how ono was given tohlir and others by Fischer lor use at a meeting 01 Thanksgiving it attacked by the police J list as it happened this time , those preset ) at 51 West Lake street on the night ot Ma ) y. whom witness could remember wen Fischer , Kngel , uieltenfeld , Ithelvdwnld Krueger ( who is dead ) , another Kiueuer Grucndwald , Schtader , liubcr , Uuebeuor two Lchmans and llemnnn.
