Opening of Hungarian
- by Riotous Scenes
BUDAPEST. Hungary, Sept. n'-The
opening session of the Hungarian parlia
ment today was marked by a wild out
burst of factional feeling which only was
prevented from becoming a free . fight
through the Intervention of party leaders.
The uproar began as soon as Count
Stephen Tissa, the president of the lowet
house, entered the chamber. He was re
ceived with cries of derision and abuse,
mingled with hissing and whistling, The
president treated the opposition out
bursts with indifference, but all his
efforts to restore order were unavailing.
His calls for attention only caused the
d Border to - break out with renewed
violence. Not a word could be heard in
the chamber or in the" press gallery above
the organized din.
The royal decree opening the session
was read without anybody hearing a word
of It and it was followed by what looked
likely to develop into a free fight.
An opposition member tauntingly asked
a deputy of the governmental party
whether he had his revolver with him
This raised feeling to fever heat and the
members were on the point of coming to
blows when Count Julius Andrassy and
other leaders intervened and separated the
deputies who had threatened each other,
The tumult however, continued. v
Only a few spectators were in the
chamber and neither police nor military
appeared, although disorder had been an
ticipated. Stormy scenes were witnessed In the
Hungarian parliament during its closing
sittings in June last which culminated
in an attempt being made to assassinate
Count Tlsza. The president of the chamber-
waa shot at three times by an op
position deputy, Julius Kovacs, who then
fired two bullets into his own body,
wounding himself seriously. The count
' Count Tlsza was elected speaker on
May 23 last. He Is an opponent of uni
versal suffrage and on this Issue his
election was contested with a bitterness
that resulted In violence in the chamber
and in bloodshed on the streets.

preme court today was, that in which It
is sought to place the name, of. R. P.
Stewart on the democratic ticket s a
candidate for supreme court 'Judge for
the First district, in which the principal
contention of the plaintiff Is that the
party right to govern itself remains un
less there is a specific legislative prohibi
tion, which is disputed by the state.
In the case of Gray against the can
didates for elector who are declared not
to be republicans and with no right on
the ballot, one of the main contentions
means political chaos if sustained. It
contended that the Richards primary law
enacted by the means of the Initiative
contains an emergency provision ana
that the law has been In effect ever
since Its enactment, that there was no
legal nominations under the old law In
June and that the only manner to
legally get names on the ballot this fall Is
by petition, which would mean the com
plete elimination of party candidates, and
put all on the same footing as indepen
dent regardless of party affiliation and
further that the right of the use of the
name of republican Is a property right
to that party and may not be used by
the followers of another party.

to all contentions this afternoon.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Sept- 17.-(Special.)-The
controversy, over the right of the bull
moose party to appear on the ballot has
developed into an Interesting condition.
The protest filed with the secretary of ;
state yesterday by A. M. Morrissey, demo
cratlo candidate for attorney general, 1
among other things set forth that the
names appearing on the petition showing
that the state convention contained suf- ,
flcient delegates to come within the law,
were secured from men who did not at
tend the convention and In some cases
were coerced Into signing because they
were afraid of losing their Jobs.
; On Sunday morning there appeared In
a local democratic paper a statement that
Superintendent Williams of the state in- .
sane asylum, whose name appeared on
the petition, claimed thaf he was a demo- .
crat and did not sign the petition. Yes
terday the same, paper published a state
ment that Superintendent Williams still
stuck to his original statement, claiming)
that the signature of Williams was writ-
ten in backhand, a form not used by the
superintendent in signing his name, but
that it was evidently done so that It
would not appear In the same style of
writing as that of the man who signed
Governor Becomes Annry.
Later when the matter was called to the
attention of Governor Aldrlch he very
vehemently asserted that Williams had
signed hts own name and that the news
paper reported had "lied," and that Wil
liams himself had written a letter to the
paper to that effect.
However, the paper claims to have re

put up to Private Secretary Fuller of the
governor's -office, who circulated the pe-'3
tltion at the asylum, he . saidiV'Tou can
say that I told the reported it was none
of his d-d business.". t "
This morning a representative of the
paper, Mr. Wolf, went to the office of the
secretary of state with a photographer
for the purpose of taking a photograph of
that page of the petition having the
names of the asylum employes thereon,
and after sticking the paper on the well
ho was admonished by Secretary of State
Wait that no picture could be taken of
a thA siime was taken .
from him. He told the secretary that he
desired to publish the picture so that the
public could Judge for themselves as to
the signatures, but Secretary Walt con
tended that any publication of the matter
before the hearing would prejudice the
public and that In the Interests of a

Mr. Wolf then called upon the attorney

matter was dropped.
In talking with a couple of newspaper
men later, Mr. Fuller stated that he saw ,
Mr. Williams write . his name on the '

It is evident that considerable will be
