In tha course of his speech Mr. Tillman
became involved In a lively colloquy with
Mr. Bpooner of Wisconsin regarding tha
ratification of the Paris treaty. Tha South
Carolina 'senator referred to Mr. Spooner's
comments In his speech yesterday upon
the part taken by William J. Bryan tn se
etrrtng the ratification of the treaty. He
areued with tha Wisconsin senator that the
influence of Mr. Bryan was potent, but ln
slsted that even hie Influence was not suffi
cient te induce tha senate to ratify the
treaty.' After he had done all that it waa
. possible tor htm to do, Mr." Tillman as
serted, the republicans yet lacked votea
enough to secure ratification.
"You know," ha shouted, shaking ' his
finger at the republican side, "how those
votes necessary were secured." ,
"How were they secured?" demanded
Mr. Spooner. .
"I know if the senator does not." rTlled
Mr. Tillman. "I have received inft i Ion
In confidence from that aids of the cham
ber. I know that Improper Influences were
used In getting those votes."
Spooaer Dessaaia to Know.
"Name the man," Insisted Mr. -Spooner,
upon whom those influences were brought
to bear. It is due tba senate and due the
country that ha name him. A man who
Impeaches another In confidence is a cow
ard. If tha senator knows of any man
who has. been . Improperly - Influenced be
should name him." '
"I know," aeserted Mr. Tillman, "that
the - patronage federal patronage of a
state has been parcelled out to a senator
klnca tha ratification of that treaty."
j "What state?" demanded Mr. Spooner.
i "South Carolina," shouted Mr. - Tillman.
"Then," Said Mr!. Spooner, "I leave you
to fight tba matter out with your col
league." .iH. v. ...... )
"Well." retorted Mr. Tillman, "I never
shirk the responsibility for a statement I
make. I know that ha (Mr.- SicLaurln)
Voted for the treaty. I know that Im
proper Influences were brought to betr,"-. I
know what I believe."
"You almply believe," retorted Mr.
Spooner, "what you do not know."

This ended tba Incident tor tha time, tnit
the 'feeling engendered mandated itself
later in a thrilling and sensational scene.
Mr. Tillman, continuing his speech, read
some . letters frcm some soldiers in1 the
Philippines, detailing soma crusltles prac
ticed on the naUvea by tha American
Torcea. Ha told of 1(0 Filipinos to whom
the writer stated, the "water cure" had
been administered, resulting in the. death
Of all but twenty -six of them. . '. .

received many letters making charges
t gainst the American forces, but In every
Instance tha writers had given him the In
formation either In confidence or as Inci
dents of wb,lcb thsy had. merely heard of
and of which they proteased to know noth

tha comments of Mr. Tillman had reflected,
as the soldiers who were charged in the
letters the South Carolina senator had
read, with the cruelties, were under Gen

General Funston's explicit denial of the
very story which had been referred to by

tory of the United States senate.
Pals to the llpa and trembling with the
emotion which In vain ha endeavored to
control, Mr. McLaurln of Bouth Carolina
arose and addressed tha senate, speaking
to a. question of personal privilege.
' Instantly a hush fell aver tha senate and

The very atmosphere aeemed charged with
excitement. With breathless Internet tha
auditors, both on the floor and la the gal
leries, hung on every word tittered by the
South Carolina senator.
Despite the emotion under which the
senator waa laboring, Mr. McLaurln aeemed
the calmest man in the senate. He epoke
with deliberation and hla enunciation waa
clear and distinct Every word ha uttered
seemed to be felt as well aa heard In the
remotest part of tha hletorlo old hall.
McLaarlav Begins Bis Reply.
"Mr. President," he began, "I rise- to a
question of personal privilege." Ha had
voiced less than a dosen words, yet the
excitement by this time had become Intense.
All aeemed to realise that a portentous
vent was about to happen. Senator Scott
of West Virginia moved restlessly about tn
the rear of the chamber and Assistant Ser
geant at Arma B. W. Layton arose from his
seat as if to. listen tha better to what was
about to be said.
"During my absence," continued Mr. Mc
Laurln, "a few momenta ago from tha
senate chamber in attendance upon the com
mittee on Indian affairs, the senator who
has just, taken his feat (Mr. Tillman) said
that Improper Influences had been used In
changing tba vote of somebody on that
treaty, and then went on later and said that
it applied to. tba senator from South Caro

that state. I think T get the sense of tha

Mr. MeLaurla got no further with his
Mr. Tillman, who was occupying hla reg

tlgr-llke ferocity at hla colleague. Mr.
Teller of Colorado, who was sitting at his

Indeed, tha Infuriated Tillman climbed over
him In hla effort ,to reach McLaurln.

Without tha slightest hesitation Mr. Mc
Laurln sprang to meet the attack halt way.
Mr. Tillman aimed A wild blow at hia col
league with his right fist. It landed upon
Mr. McLaurln'a forehead Just above tba left
eye, although Ita force was partially spent
on McLaurins arm, which he had raised tn
effort to parry tha blow.
Instantly McLaurln'a right arm shot out,
the blow landing upon Tillman's face, ap
parently upon the noss. Again Tillman
struck out frantically, this time with his
left baad. Tha blow did not land upon Uc
Laurln. Then followed a wild scrimmage,
with both Senators clutching at each other
madly. Senators Warren and Scott, both
of whom are powerful men, rushed toward
tha combatants to aeparate tbem.

Just as he seised McLaurln Tillman
aimed a left-handed blow at his colleague,
which struck Mr. Layton In tha face. For

at each other, aome of the blows land

seemed to be the calmer of the Ofo. Mr.
TUlman wss as white aa aN sheet. Aa he
eat down in his seat he drew his handker

from his face that seemingly was flowing

It had not been supposed that blood had

Bseltesaeat at Hla Teasloa.
During the fight eenators all over the
chamber were on their feet. Not a word,
however, was spoken. The senste never In
all Ita history had received auch a shock.
Tha president pro tern, Mr. Frye, waa the
drat to regain composure. In calm and un
impassloned tonea ha directed that the
eenate bo in order. ,
He rapped two or three times with hie
gavel and in a moment a aemblance of or
der waa restored, senators having by this
time partly recovered from the shock and
moved hurriedly about the chamber. Mr.
Gallinger was first to address tha chair.
"Mr. President," eaid he, "I ask you
that the doors be closed."
Again the president pro tern requested the
senate to be in order and that the sen
ators resume their seat.
It was reserved for Mr. Prltchard of
North Carolina in a measure to relieve the
strain under which all were laboring. He
deeired to addreea the senate on the pend
ing Philippine bill, and, calling for the at
tention of the chair, said: "If tha senator

He was interrupted by Mr. McLaurln, who
said calmly: y
"I will now proceed with my remarks,
which were so unceremoniously Inter

"Which one of the senators T" lu quired

McLaurln, "and t?e other one, too, for. that

"I loin In that. Surely," he continued with
great feeling, his face nale with excite

been endeavoring vainly to get the eye of

Every senator, atlll laboring under tha
emotion which all endeavored to conceal,
the motion waa agreed to and at 1:62 the
doors were closed.
Tha proceedings after, the doors elosed
covered almost two hours of time and re
sulted In tha adoption of a resolution In
the form of an order, as follows: ,
Ordered. That the two senators from the
state of South Carolina be declared in con
tempt Of tho' senate, on- account of the al
tercation and personal encounter between
them this day in open session,-and that the
matter be referred to the committee on
firlvlleges and elections, with Instructions
o report what action shall be taken by tha
senate in regard thereto.
The - decision In tha secret session was
based largely on tha foregoing resolution,
the first suggestion of which wss made by
Mr. Foraker. In presenting the resolution,
Immediately after tha doora of the cham
ber were closed, Mr. Foraker took occa
elon to remark that the occurrence had
been, an outrage on the dignity of the
aenata',' of which -the senate should take
Hoar Wests Explicit Aetloa.
Mr. Hoar endorsed the resolution of Mr.
Foraker, but said he thought the action of
the aenata should be more explicit than
contemplated by the resolution. .
He therefore moved to amend it by order
ing that tha two senators bs dsclared in
contempt by the senate for disorderly eon
duct and speech in Its presence and that
both should bo taken in custody. In sup
port of this amendment , he said that any
court or any other parliamentary body
would commit . men for auch a grave of
fense against lis dignity to Walt its Judg
ment. The reference of the matter to a
committee, ha said,. would be on a line with
court's .reference to an auditor or ref
eree, and the offender should be restrained
during tha investigation. ,
Mr. Blackburn and other aenatora then
stated that the two South Carolina aena
tora were willing to apologise and thua
purge themaelvea of contempt, and la view
of this statement, Mr, Hoar withdrew tha
portion of hla amendment providing for
11 Asrree on Gravity of Offense.
Mr. Foraker then accepted the amendment
of Mr. Hoar and It was embodied In tha
resolution. Before the vote waa taken a
number of aenatora epoke, and while there
were many kind utterances regarding both
aenatora, here was no exception in the
opinion as to the gravity and aerlousness
of tha offense.
Among the senators who thua delivered
themselves were Messrs. Teller, Fairbanks,
Hanna, Blackburn and Spooner. Mr. Hanna
suggested that aerloua aa had been the en
counter In tha aenata. It waa not so grave
as the charge of misconduct made against
Mr. McLaurln, and ha thought thai any In
veetlgation undertaken should extend to
that matter. v
Mr. Teller, while uniting with other sen
ators In deprecating the oc.urrence, aald
that It waa not unprecedented, that there
had been ' other similar Instances on tba
Boor of the senate, instancing the en
counters between Eenators Benton and
ays Spooner te Hot Bin melees.
He also suggested that Mr. Spooner waa
not entirely blameless for today's occur
rence, because by his Interrogatories ha
had provoked Mr. Tlllmaa to make the
charges that were but vaguely made be
fore his Interference In the debate. ,
Replying to this statement, Mr. Bpooner
said that ha had been of the opinion that
Mr. Tillman should either not make his
charges or move for an inquiry by the aen
ata If he believed them to be well founded.
There was much discussion as to whether
the vote of the Foraker amendment should
be taken la open or secret aesslon.
A motion wss made by Mr. Teller look
ing to the opening of the doors. This waa
voted down, IS to 42. The repubilcsa aen
atora generally expressed themselves as
willing to hear the apologies promised, but
Insisted that first there should be action
on tba resolution.
Dlvlalea aa tne Qaaetloa.
On the suggestion of Mr. Bacon, there
was a division of tha two branchea of tha
Tha first vote was taken on the declar
ation that the two senator were In con
tempt and it prevailed by aa unanimous
vote of CI to on a roll call.
Tha remainder of tha resolution refer
ring the matter to the committee on priv
ileges and elections was adoptsd without
roll tali. Both the South Carolina senators
remained la their aeats during the entire
seeslon. They conferred frequently with
their frtenda. but neither attempted to ad
dress the senate.
At t-ii p. m. tha aenata resumed opea
seeslon. Evidence wss abundant that tha

chamber Waa on his feet. Groups of sena
tors were gathered here and there about
the chamber, ail discussing the porten-

body Into a ferment.

consent, maintaining that tf the aenatora
were accorded tha floor in that way, thsy
held It for any purpose and had tho un
doubted right to speak on any subject.
"Oh, no, no," came protests from ail
parts et tha chamber. .
' Not a Conrt Caee.
Mr. Stewart of Nevada was about to sug
gest the practice of courts In contempt
cases, but - hs 'was Interrupted by Mr.
Blaclapurn with the statement that tha
senate waa not a court in Any sense. Tha
senate had its own rules and by them only
could it be govsmed.
Mr. Aldrich of Bhode Island aald there
was nothing in tha rules of tha aenata
which governed apeclflcally such a viola
tion of tha order and dignity of . the body
as bad occurred. As both aenatora had
been declared by the aenata to ba In eon-
tempt, it was manifest that they would not
take tha floor except for tha express pur
pose of purging themselves of that con
tempt Ha maintained that tha aenatora
from South Carolina had been adjudged out
of order by a vote of tha aenata.' -
The diacusalon on this qusstlon waa quite
lengthy and was participated in by Mr.

Other senators showed a disposition to
discuss tba subject further, but tha presi
dent pro tern, Mr.-.Frye, announced that ha
was ready to rule, and said:
While these two senatora are declared to
be in contempt, the chair could not bear

must , take his ohair and he , cannot be
recognised by the presiding officer again
until the senate has relieved him from that

At the conclusion of the ruling of Mr.

"Why one senator from South Carolina?"
Interjected Mr. Spooner.

Blackburn, "to make any atatement in their

Tba motion waa carried.
In a breathlesa alienee Mr, Tillman arose
to address tha sanate. . He was calm and
collected and gave no Indication by bla
manner of the tremendoua acene in which
be had been one of the principal actors a
short t'jne before. He spoke deliberately
and everyone of tho 100 auditora leaned
forward, eager to catch hla words. Hs
Tlllmaa Begins Apology.
, Mr. President, I have always esteemed
It a nigh honor and privilege to be a mem
ber of this body. I had never had any
legislative experience when I came hero
and my previous service as governor of
Bouth Carolina for four years had unfitted
me In a measure to enter thin auguet as
sembly with that dignity ard regard
proper regard I will nay for Its traditions
and habits and rules that is desirable.
I have been here seven years. I have In
that time learned to Judge men with a
little f.cre catholicity of spirit than when
I came here. 1 have found a great many
people here In whose personal Integrity and
honor and regard foi their obligations ns
fentlemen I have Implicit confidence; but
hve seen so much of what 1 consider
slavish submission to party domination
that I confess 1 have felt somewhat at a
loss how to Judge men who In one aspect
appeared to be So high and clean and
honorable and In another appeared more or
lees deeplcable. I say this c-ecause of the
fact that one of the senators hss seen fit
to allude to some matters that occurred in
the debate this afternoon.
Rearrets Any Offense.
I want to ssy that so far as any action
of mine has caused any senator here or the
senate as a body or the people of the
United Btates to feei that I have been
derelict and that I have not shown that
courtesy and proper observance of the
rules of this body that 1 regret it; I apolo
gise for it. I was ready to do that two
minutes after I had acted, but under the
provocation which Was known of alt of
rou I could not have acted otherwise than
did, and while I apologize to the senate
and am sorry that It has occurred I have
nothing more .to aay. -
Mr. McLaurln arose at tha conclusion of
Mr.- Tillman's brief address.
He, too, waa calm, but It waa evident that
ha was suppressing hla emotions by an
effort. He spoke with greater feeling than
had been manifested by hla colleague, par
ticularly when he told the senate how
sorely ha had been tried by the accusations
which had been made against nlm from
Urns to time. Hla statement follows:
McLnnrln Offers His Apoloary.
Mr. President, I did not realise that I
was in contempt of the senate, nor do I
think now if my words are read In the
record that I was in contempt of the sen
ate, but at the same time, as the senate
has ruled that I am In contempt of thla
honorable body, I beg leave to apologise.
I desire to say, Mr. President, that I have
been very sorely and severely tried. I was
in attendance on the committee on Indian
affairs, when I received a message from a
friend in tha senate that my presence was
The history of the vote on the Bpanlsh
treaty is known to all of you. There have
been statements in newspapers and insinu
ations that I had been Influenced by im
proper motives in connection with my vote
on that treaty. Knowing in my own soul
and knowing that Qod In heaven knows it
was false, when I was t6ld that It waa
centered down to me, I was so outraged by
what I considered a most brutal assault
upon my honor as a man, and especially
in view of the fact that in the beginning
of the session, after the action of my-jwrty
associates I made a most careful and de
libnrate statement. exDlalnlna all those
matters I did not feel as a man, that I
could ever hold my neaa up again it l oia
not resent it in the place where It was de
livered in the strongest and most forcible
terms that I could employ.

and cotton goods to those Islands for the
period named amounted to t9.610.J07. Of this
total the United Btates furnished the small
amount of $127,325. These figures are sur

Is firmly established It will surely be at an
early day that the south will furnish the
greater part of this 9,SS2,9S2 worth of cot
ton and cotton goods thst has heretofore
been furnished by other countries?
