Washington, March IS. Streaks
of dawn nlterlng through the win
dows of the capltol -this morning,
lighted up N the weary eyes of stub
bornly fighting representatives, who
for 18 hours had been locked in a
struggle caused by an attempt to
break the organization of the house
of representatives, and enact new
rules. At 2:30 o'clock this morning
a'uumber of Republican regulars left
the. house chamber and It was
thought that the debate had been
checked because less than a quorum
was on hand.
Then the ught took a new turn.
An effort was made to get every rep
resentative Into' the'house. Warrants
were issued for the 200 members ab
sent from the session, and Sergeant-at-Arins
Oasson was instructed 'to
serve them. As the hours passed
Democrats began to complain of the
lack of responses obtained by Casson
who was suposed to be drumming up
members. Casson was called In, and
explained that he was .doing the best
he could.
At 4 -o'clock this morning Hol
lingsworth (R., Ohio,) appeared an
gry through and through, because he
was under arrest.
He demanded the name of the man
who had made the motion for his ar
rest so that he could start civil ac
tion for damages. James, the giant

ness. Why do we do the greatest volume of business? Because we

Why is It that the Chicago
Store does such a great Dress
Goods business? Because wo
only show the latest and new
est goods at prices that are In

The Store That Savzs You Money
Kentucky Democrat, rose and mildly
suggested that Holllngsworth bring
action against the whole Republican
party. When he found out that war
rants had been issued for all the ab
sentees, Hollngsworth ' was some
what pacified.
During the night Dalzell (R Pa.)
ocupled the chair. At 6 o'clock this
morning Cannon returned to the
chamber. The lines on his face
showed the terrible strain ho has
been under since the unexpected
flht started. His appearance was the
signal for a now feature of the at
tack. The Democrats present showered
it Hlons upon him regarding the
huk or truant members. Cannon
spared, and said he had signed war
rants for the men. It developed that
he had issued warrants only to Cas
son, the Republican, and that Joseph
Slnnot, Democrat, assistant sergeant-at-arms,
had not been instructed to
help bring in the absent members.
Cannon was accused of having at
tempted a personal filibuster. His
tactics In refusing to allow Slnnot
to bring in the absent representa
tives was declared an effort to keep
away those who would join in the in
surgent cause.
During the hours that the session
raged there were hurried conferences
in the cloak rooms and the effort to
get the regulars and those Demo
crats whom the speaker's friends
could rely on was doubled.
Although Cannon could not give
Slnnot warrants for the absent mem
bers he swore in 20 deputies and
sent them out to hunt up the absent
ones. At 7:20 o'clock a roll call was
taken and showed a quorum present.
Olmstcad, Rep., moved that the ser-geant-at-arms
and his deputies be
instructed to cease efforts to arest
absentees. A roll call was demand
ed. . -
Again the Cannon organization was
defeated by a vote of 124 to 93.
Twenty-nine Democrats refused to
vote, being in harmony with absent
Ropublifcans. The allies, Democrats
and Insurgents, declared shortly af
ter the roll call that they would have
a majority of seven, even with a full
membership of the. house present.
"How long will this situation
last?" Dwight, the Republican whip,
was asked.
"Ask me something easy," he re-

er. Maybe he has something up his
sleeve and will spring it soon.
"One thing is certain they won't
catch him napping, and they won't
bo able to make him rule on that
point of order before he is ready'
Representative Norrls, when asked
for his views, said:
'This thing will probably last un
til the patience of every member of
the house Is exhausted, xnen you
may look for anarchy.
"It will not come for some tlmo,
though, I should say. Everybody
realizes the consequences. Suppose

members that he will not rule on the

'He must be deposed, and that
would mean anarchy.
"A new speaker would have to be
put In the chair, and if Cannon were
to refuse to give up the gavel, you
can imagine what scene would en
sue. ,
At 8:45 Cannon placed Represen
tative Moore, of Pennsylvania, In the
chair. t
t Hostilities were suspended at 10
o'clock, but a sufficient number of
representatives were present.
The belief is that the fight would
soon be resumed. "
The insurgents and their Demo
cratic allies, according to their state
ments at 10 o'clock, are confident of
a victory.
They declared that with all the
members of the house present, It will
have a majority of seven on the vote
on the rules resolution. The regu
lars were making counter claims, and
declare that they would be able to
muster enough votes to defeat the
rules resolution and re-establish the
supremacy of the Cannon organiza
tion. The present rules committee con
sists of five members, one of whom
is the speaker. It is through this
committee, the insurgents charge,
that the speaker is able to rule the
house. Ever since the insurgent
movement started, the rules commit
tee has been the point of attack.
An effort made by the insurgents
a year ago to overthrow the present
rules committee plan was defeated by
a sudden combination of Republican
regulars and Democrats.
Norrls announced before the be
ginning of the session that an effort
would be made to capture the rules
committee. His resolution was pre
pared before congress convened, and
has been ready in his desk ,to spring
when the proper moment came.

Charlie Richardson and Bob Austin,
negroes, were taken from the jail at
Marlon today, by a mob of 50 men,
and lynched.
Shortly before tho ropes were
placed about their necks, the blacks
confessed that they aided In a jail
delivery hero recently. Among the
prisoners who escaped was A. H.
Ferguson, a wealthy citizen of Mar
ion who was awaiting trial on tho
charge of murder. Ferguson has
not been recaptured.
At the tlmo both negroes were In
carcerated for Jnlnor offenses. They
were recaptured later and brought
back to Marlon.
Last night a mob took the keys
of the jail from Deputy Sheriff Tom
Wllllford and dragged Richardson
and Austin from the jail.
Placing ropes around the prison
ers' necks, the mob marched through
tho streets of the town for two
hours. No attempt was made to kill
tho negroes at .the tlmo. , .
The men were then returned to
the jail whllo the mob surrounded
the' building. Guards remained all
night and today tho mob re-formed
and lynched the negroes.
During tho night scores of negro
residents fled from tho town as they
feared a race war.
The bodies of the Uvp men were
left swinging to a tree for some
time as a warning.

After 24 hours of debate, recrimin

Speaker Cannon voted In favor of
the motion. Several insurgents al
so supported tho motion for a re

that they fnvored somo sort of a
compromise, rather than an open
split with the supporters of Cannon.
Before the motion was submitted

striving to roach a compromise.

tordny afternoon made a visit to the
now mute nnd doaf school buildings,
which have Just beon completed, and.
after a thorough Inspection, accepted

Tho now school Is located on a 57
ncro tract lying north of tho city,
and consists of two main buildings,
a power and, heating plant, and also
a frame building, which was fqrmor
ly used by tho Polytechnic school.
Tho now buildings "were found to bo
excellent, both from tho point of
workmanship and material, and both
of tho officers expressed themselves
as much gratified with tho buildings
as a whole.
Tho school Is now occupying the
buildings situated south of the city,

nnd tberoby caused their education,
which depends' so much on sight, to

this that tho now ones wero erected.
The new buildings are situated near
