WASHINGTON , March 30. A wild and up-
rcarlous scene occurred In tbo house today
wden Mr. Bailey , the democratic leader , at-
cmptcd to force the hand of the republicans
upon a proposition to overrule the speaker
and pac a renolutlco recognizing the Independence - .
pendence of the Cuban republic.
Ho was cheered on by the crowded cal
ories , but the members of the majority re
fused to support him. Many of them sym
pathized with the purpose of the resolution ,
Mr. Hull , chairman of ttio military com
mittee , going so far as to endorse the propo
sition under the presumption that It pro
vided for a declaration of war , but most
of the radicals who were ycaterday In favor
of any revolutionary method , had been wcu
over to fitlck to the party organization , and
to refuse to do anything until the Initiative
came from their side.
Then came rallies by two leading advo
cates of armed Intervention , and the speaker
himself , from the cliak' . made an Indirect ap-
? oal to tils party assocIate-3 to stand firm , at
the same , tlmo Intimating that If their 1m-
patlcnco was curbed a llttlo longer luey
would have the. opportunity they coveted.
When the vote was taken only two re
publicans , Messrs. Atcheson and Robblns
[ Pa. ) , broke from the party lines. About
a dozen moro cat silent In their seats and
refused to vote.
Tlio scene throughout was .meat dramatic ,
and the members and spectators In the gal
leries Were wrought up to a high pitch of ox.
Several times later In the day , during the
consideration ot the naval bill , whenever
the Cuban question was broached the mem
bers swarmed about the speaker , and the
galleiles cheered. This was especially the
caio when Mr. Cummlngs ( dcm. , N. Y. )
Mr. Boutelle ( rep , , Me. ) , who objected to a
request for extension of his time , was hissed.
The only Important action on the naval
bill today "wad the refusal of the chair to
eustaln a point ot order against the provl-
tlon for a floating atoel dock at Algiers , La.
BAILEY IS THE CAUSE.
The storm broke Immediately after the
radlng ot the Journal , when Mr. Bailey , the
democratic leader , demanded recognition as
o matter of privilege , and offered a resolu-
tlcn.A profound sensation followed. Members
rose en masse all over the housj. No one
knew what the resolution contained , but all
knew that It related to the all-absorbing
topic of Cuba.
Mr. Evans ( rep. , Ky. ) Interposed to declare
that a pension bill coning over from last
night was In order , and amid Intenao excite
ment the speaker , with a wh'.te , stern face ,
held that the regular order was the consid
eration ot the pension bill , which ho directed
the clerk to read.
Whllo It was being read Mr. Bailey re
quested that the resolution bo senj back to
him. As teen as the pension bill was passed
ho was again on his feet demanding recogni
But Mr. Boutelle. chairman of the naval
affairs committee , "was alss calling for recog
nition , and the speaker recognized him.
Pausing amid the clamor and contusion , he
Informed Mr. Bailey calmly that his rights
would be respected.
Mr. Boutellp then moved that the house
go Into the committee of the whole and re-
'sume the consideration 'of the naval appro
priation bill. '
"Pending that motion , " announced the
speaker , "the gentleman from Texas states
ho desires to present a privileged question.
The gentleman will state It. "
Mr. Bailey then presented the resolution
for the independence of Cuba , as follows :
Resolved , By the senate and house of rep.
rcsentntlven that the heroic s'ruggU of the
Cuban people asnlnst th& force of arms and
the horrors of famine has sho.wi them
worthy to bo free , and
Second , The United Slates hereby racos-
n\7.ea \ the republic of Cuba as a free and
The reading was listened to amid a alienee
profoundly Impressive , and at Its conclusion
rhcer after cheer was given , from the galler
ies and f'o floor.
The republican side was ominously allent.
The speaker rapped vigorously for order ,
and warned the galleries that no demonstra
tions would be allowed.
Mr. Boutello Immediately made the point
of order that the resolution was not privi
leged , and upon that Mr. Bailey demanded
to be heard.
TOO SE3RIOUS 'FOR ' HASTE. '
He demanded that the subject with which
the resolution dealt was too serious and
the occasion too Important to be hastily
disposed of. He Insisted that 'he had a right
to present the resolution under the rules and
rulings , and the responsibility must rest
with the majority If It was ruled out of
order and the ruling sustained.
Ho callpJ attention to the fact that In the
Fifty-third congress , when Mr. Crisp was
speaker , Mr. Boutelle , who now made the
point of order that this resolution wus'iwt
privileged , presented a resolution of a elm-
liar character relating to Hawaii , which the
cpeaktr held was prlvlegeil , but must go tea
a committee. Against that ruling an appeal
was taken and the whole republican side
had voted against tabling the appeal.
When ho tald that at the head of the Hat
distinguished republicans who voted on
that occasion was the honorable speaker of
this hoiibo the democrats went Into rapturous
Meantime the confusion was great. The
republican leaders were evidently rallying
tholr forces. Mr. Hull , chairman of the com
mittee on military affairs , who was ono ot
the prlmo movers In the movement for
prompt and vigorous action on the repub
lican sIJc , came forward with a strong ap
peal to republicans to not bo carried eft their
At the outset he acknowledged that his
sympathies wcro with the resolution ( which ,
It trantplred afterward , he believed nt that
time contained a dcclaratlMi ot war ) , but ho
argued , that It did not present a question/
higher privilege than the consideration ol
an appropriation bill. Wo could have war ,
said he , whenever we wanted It. A resolu
tion declaring war was privilege ! ho admit
"But this Is not a resolution dolarlng
war. " Interposed Mr. Bland. "It Is a reso
lution recognizing the Independence ol
Cuba , which does not necessarily Involve
war. " i
HULL IS FOR WAR.
"If the resolution falls short of that. "
replied Mr. Hull , "and I did not hear it
fully read : If It falls short of that point , II
la not operative , and to my mind It docs not
present any question of privilege at all ,
Ao I have always said , I am In favor ol
this government Intervening at , the very
earliest date unless conditions change ma
terially he. that they will Insure the liberty ol
the Cubans and a cessation of the deplorable
conditions that prevail In that Island at
the piesent time. ( Applauio on the repub
lican side. )
"I cm In favor of that principle. anO
state now and hero that I will go as far as
any man on thU floor for the purpcao ol
preserving the rights of he struggling
patriots In their heroic efforts on thai
Island ( applause on tbo republican fide )
ana I am In favor of the United States con
trolling the destinies ot this continent and
Baying to Spain < hat It must get out of the
western hemisphere. "
Mr , Terry ( dem. . Ark. ) declared that a
question Involving a matter of privilege was
in fact one for the bouse to decide.
Wbllo ho was speaking -the republicans
were conferring. The leaders werp circu
lating among them and such confusion re
sulted that Mr. Simpson ( pop. , Kan. ) raised
a lauzh amid the excitement by asking for
order among the "speaker's reconcentradoa. "
Mr. Hopkins ( rep. , III. ) , another of the re
publicans who favor * Immediate Inttrven
tlon. called attention to ( be distinction
In the former It was contended that the dig
nity of the house had been Infringed upon
by the executive. Thcro was no such con
Continuing , ho appealed to his colleagues
to rally to the support of the speaker. The
republican members knew , ho said , that
within a brief tlmo action would bo had , so
that there was no necessity for resorting to
Amid profound silence the speaker then
made his ruling. He spoke In deliberate ,
distinct and emphatic tones , and decided
hat the resolution was not privileged In the
following ruling :
A question of privilege which concerns
ho house Is one which concerns the exer
cise of Its functions In accordance with the
) rlnclpea : which ( govern parliamentary
> odles. Every parliamentary body ban to
invo rules for Its government , otherwise It
would have no crovernment at all ; und upon
adherence to those rules depends Its nuc-
ceas us n parliamentary body.
The rights of the house under the constl-
utlon arc In no way to be confounded'wlth
> rlvlleges of the house and of every mem-
> vr In It , In the sense. In which this matter
M presented here today.
Congress has certain powers conferred
upon It , and In the exorcise of those powers
e.ich house Is governed by Its ru'cs. It la
luthorlzpd expressly by the constitution to
mike rules , and without the authorization
of the constitution It would be at liberty
0 make rules. These rules nre the protec
tion of the rights of the house.
Now , It would bo 'noticed ' In the constl-
utlon. If any gentleman will turn to It ,
hat there lire certain , powers conferred
upon congress , tne power to declare war ,
.ho power to legislate for the general wel
fare , and a series of other enumerated
powers. No man up to this ilato has for
in Instant pretended or suggested that be
cause the congress lias the right to pass
aw.s upon certain topics that proposals for
these laws become questions of privilege ;
never before , except once , and the chair
will present the decision to the house.
The same language Is used -with reference
to our relations with foreign nations that
Is used with reference to the creation of the
courts of law und all other power which
is concerned. It Is a legislative power and
Is exercised under the constitution by
rules adopted by each body. This la the
llrst preliminary Idea that we ought to have
In regard to this matter.
But this proportion In regard to the war
or about recognition or any of those sub
jects which may or may not bo within our
purview do not become questions of priv
ilege at nil , because wo have n right to
pass upon them , because that would make
uverythlng a question ot privilege nnd end
by making nothing a question of.privilege.
Now let us sea what It Is founded on ,
This Is a matter which 'we should not have
Kiven attention to , except in times of in
terest , not to say cxcltemnt.
The gentleman from MaineMr. . Boutc'.le ' )
some time ago presented to Spea'.ter Crlsi
a proposition 'which had In It certain ele
ments charging1 that tbo executive was In
terfering with some of the rights and. priv
ileges of the legislative body. The speakoi
rttlPil that It was a question of privilege
and you will perceive that It was entirely
dlllerent from the. present proposition am :
has no aspect like it at all ; not the faint
est resemblance to It ; but the speaker ruler
th.it that was a privileged question. Hi
also ruled that , being a privileged ques
tion. It shouM so to a committee.
Well , now , against that doctilne the chnli
has always been opposed , and the ques
tions , us members will see. by turning te
the record , that were , put to a house wen
on that part of the speaker's decision as
to 'whether It should so to a committee
or not. and If It appears , as the gentleman
from Texas says , I voted on that pubjoct

But he has omitted to state to you thai
this other question , the same question , nl
mot , was put 1)oforo to Speaker Crisp am
by him promptly decided to1 be > out of ordei
nt an emrller day. on July 30. 1S9I.
The. gentleman from Maine ( Mr. BoutPllo.

presenting n. privileged question , and tin
gentleman from Missouri , an old and ex.
pcrlonccvl member ( Mr. Dockery ) . mad ; : tin
point of order that the resolution .was noi

republican side. ) Well , no.v , no a mattci
sustained thepolnt -
of course , tha speaker -
and that la precisely this question.
BAILEY GETS SOME LIGHT.
Mr. Bailey May I Inquire of mo chafr 1
there was any appeal'take'n on the-decision o
the chair ?
The Speaker There wns no appeal. It wai
too clear for an appeal even. ( Laughter am
applause on the republican side. )
Mr. Bailey Immediately appealed from thi
dechlon of the chair.
In putting the question on the appea
Speaker Reed made the following slgnlfl
cant and Impressive statement :
"Aa far as any question nrla'ng ' out ofthl <

chair IIES not the slightest doubt that , thi
wisdom of the house , which has always beet
able to arrive at important questions In <
bultable way , will get at them now anil a
p. speedy time for the occasion. " ( Applause
on the republican side. )
Mr. Bailey In reply to that suggestion
which was not a part of the decision , o
course , I understand that It was made t (
hold our friends on the other side , and i
venture to say
At this point Mr. Boutelle moved that tli <
appeal bo laid upon the table.
The division was eagerly awaited. The
republicans atose en masse when the spealtei
called for the ayes.-
The democrats , who anxiously surveyed
the solid phalanx'for a slgn of a break , were
disappointed. A solid minority voted again : !
The division resulted , ISO ayes to 130 noes
As EOCCI as the result wa9'announced the
ayes and noes were demanded and the TO !

The republicans enthusiastically approvoc

Beyond these two points no reference was

Mr. Hawley ( Conn. ) ot the military affairs

It went over.
Mr. Fryo ( Me. ) Inquired of Mr. Allen

Mr. Wolcott then asked that the entire
correspondence on tbe subject be printed ,
and It was so ordered.
Mr. Galllnger and Mr. Fryo strenuously
opposed the Perktas amendment , while Mr.
Wilson supported It.

For many years physicians have experi
mented In win , socking a remedy which
would effectually cure piles and other rectal
troubles without resorting to a surgical op
eration. Many remedies were found to glvo
temporary relief , but none could bo de
pended upon to make a lasting , tutlsfactory
Within a recent period , however , a now
remedy , the Pyramid Pllo Cure , has been
repeatedly tested In hundreds of cases and
with highly satisfactory results.
The first effect of the Pyramid Pllo Cure
la to Instantly remove the pain and Irrita
tion geneially present , and from that time
in the cire tapldly progress and before )
the patient Is hardly aware of It ho Is en
tirely cured. The remedy seems to act di
rectly on the nerves and blood vessels of
the parts affected , as It comes Into direct
contact with them and sets up a healthy
action , which In a perfectly natural way
brings the parts to their normal condition.
The remedy docs Its work without any
pain or Inconvenience to the sufferer and Is
justly considered ono of the most meritorious
discoveries of modern medicine.
Piles Is one of the most annoying and
often tlmen dangerous dlt'cascs ' with which
humanity Is afflicted. If "neglected It fre
quently develops Into fistula or soiuo equally
fatal or Incurable trouble , whereas by the
timely use of this I'lmplo ' but effective Jem-
ody no one need suffer a single day from anv
form of plica unless they want to.
The Pyramid Pile Cure la perfectly harK
less , containing no mineral poisons , and Is
also very reasonable In price , costing but
CO cents a package. It Is sold In drug
stores everywhere. The manufacturers ot
the remedy are the Pyramid Drug Co. ol
Marshall , 'Mich. , who have placed this ex
cellent preparation before the public only
after giving It thorough and repented testa
In the hands of reputable phjslclans. The
results In hundreds of cares have convinced
us that it will not disappoint you.
