Wlurli In IKC3 ON, April The most exciting scene that has been wit- nessed in the chamber of the United States senate occurred late last night, whiln the Cuban resolutions were under debate, after a continu- ous session of thirteen hours' dura- tion. Before adjournment conltl se- cured an agreement was reached that a vote should be taken not later than K o'clock tonight. A for mal agreement was reached at 9 :30 o'clock last night to that effect. Agreement, however, was not ar- rived at without a highly dramatic and discreditable scene. SENATORIAL TKMPEK.S TRIE1X It was about 9 o'clock when the trouble occurred. The senate had twice refused to adjourn, turning a deaf ear to Senator Hoar's plea for mercy on account of his health. The tempers of the senators had been frayed to a wire edge with t-he long boors they had spent in listen- ing to the endless debate and with the strain and excitement of the day. At this critical time Senator .Tones of Arkansas proposed the agreement outlined above. His remarks had the effect of bringing Mr. White to MISSION OF PEACE. Archbishop Ireland New York. Will Labor WHH Men In incluii-niu ftlTcn to his feet with some caustic remarks about the length of time he had spent in listening to the war talk, and he insisted on his rights to pro- sent his ideas to the senate. He said he should not take more than an hour and a half, even though sev- eral senators on the other side had spoken for tour hours. Mr. Cafferytoade similar remarks, accepting Mr. Jones' proposition and saying that be should not re- quire morn than one hour. Mr. Wellington followed with the assertion that ho would tako what- ever part of the four van left, and nil drew long breatlH of relief at seeing the cad in sight. STAI'.TfKfl OK TJIR CLASH. But there was a Stirring scene yet to como. Mr. Money roae and ex- plained that lift should object to the proposed agreement nnlaw it gome time for taking a He saw no reason why the senate should not continue iu continuous session. Mr. Wellington remarked that Mr. Money would not hasten mat- ters by insisting on a night session. "I appreciate the gentleman's remarked Mr. Money. "I meant no protested Mr. Wellington, "I Here the waspish senator from New Hampshire, Mr. Chandler, put in his oar. In the most insulting tones he remarked: "Surely the senator from Missis- sippi would not wish to take a vote without listening ut length to the views of the senator from Mary- land." Instantly Mr. Wellington was on his feet, quivering with rage, di- rected, strange to say, against Mr. Money. "I listened here for hours to the senator from he de- dared furiously, "when he returned from Cuba as an agent of the news- papers-----" "I want to correct a misstatement right here, "exclaimed Mr. Money. "I was not aa agent of any newspa- per." BKSAtOR MOBIV HBLUCCMB. "The Journal says yon reiterated Mr. Wellington.

"I do make it on my own respon- sibility "Then you lie." Uie a whip-crack came the reply, and the galleries burst into ap- plause, unheeded by the chair. "If the gentleman can use such language I can use it M well as exclaimed Mr. Wellington, white as a sheet and trembling with anger. "Come outside and use cried Mr. Money. "Very well, returned Mr. Wellington. "Come reiterntod Mr. Money, whereat Mr. Wilson blandly inquired whether it would not be in order to move a declaration of war. Mr. Wellington stood by his desk, netvoosly tearing a sheet of paper to threds and glaring at Mr. Money. APOLWtZBS TO SBMTE, However, quieted down a and Jones' proposi- tton was agreed to. Then Mr, Money arose and regretted that he had, under grfttt provocation, vio- the decofnm of tbe senate and to stnftM for bit words, laying the on the senate. The fftfiMiM again on WASHINOTOX. April bishop Ireland left last night on the midnight train for Mew York, ac- companied by Professor Pace, of the Catholic university. Monsignor Ireland will have sev- eral conferences with men in New York who aro in touch with the government but ho is confident that any further Rttorte to induce the ('nited States to postpone action would lie in vain. When the presi- dent sent his message to congress on Monday, Archbishop Ireland went to Baltimore, where he held ft conference with Cardenal Qtbbons about the situation. The two prelates held the same everything possible had been done, and there would bo no benefit derived from carrying the negotiations further. This view- was eommunicated to the Vatican. Yesterday a message was received expressing the profound regret of Among the latter are the mapiiiicent liners St. Paul, .St. Louis. Xe.w York and Paris, the four Morgan liners, the yacht, the dynamite, cruiser Xlctheroy, the hospital ship Solace and it Wwh- rppair Chalniftte. Xaval oncers a rather poor opinion of the vessels bought abroad anil consider they were purchased rather to keep them away from Spain than because of ihtir real value to us. Kven the New Orleans is not consid- ered any better than she should lie, while the Topeka lias as yet no suns and will require a Rood deal of work before she can be of service. The Solace is not a lighting ship, .She will not even have a revolver on hoard, hut will trust entirely to her fled Cross (lag for protection in case of necessity. She will not even carry a newspaper correspondent and will make no reports of any kind to tbe government, for fear that such action might imperil her neutrality. The explosives she will have are rockets for signaling purposes. MEMORIAL MY. Rons of Veterans Will Honor the Sacred Dead. Pope LeO XIII at the prospect Of .tpiwintwl 1W> the war, and containing a prayer that hostilities might yet be averted. Archbishop Ireland took this mes- sage as meaning that his mission had closed and left the city. He may go to St. Paul from New York, or he may return to Washington, enronte to his home. COL. R. G.

I am surprised that the pope would allow it to con- tinue. The religion of the world should stop it.
