Cannon whose love for the farmer was ridiculed Cannon Dlukca n Slmdy Ilomark An expression used by Cannon in his re ply was interpreted by the house as vul gar aud was received with some applause but there wan instantly groat confusion and disorder in the hall McAdoo shout ed out that he wanted the words to go upon the record as a specimen of Cannons vulgarity Caruth of Kentucky suggested the propriety of clearing the galleries of todies while Euloe was clamoring for rec ognition on a question ot order McAdoo shouted out to Cannon If you can afford to let that go on the record as a specimen of your stable jockey wit I can afford to leave It tlieru I cannot irululgo in black guardism with you You ought to argue with u stable jockey That is your aixe The llenifirk Withdrawn Finally Euloe was recognized ou his point of order and demanded that the words bo taken down Oh if that aunoys the gentle man 1 will withdraw it After a brief discussion the speaker overruled the point of order on the ground that Enloes proper course would have been to call tho gentleman to order and not to raise a point order Enloe ap pealed from the decision ami the clerk proceeded to call

is engaged in taking the census of the members of the Sioux tribes in lihe Dakotas He has completed the enumeration of the Indians in the Rosebud agency in South Dakota and finds that there are men woiaen and children located there As the Indian office has been for the last few years dis tributing rations at the agency there on the basis of a population of about 7500 the inijuiry arose as to what had become of the odd 2300 Indians t Huw Is Tills Mr Wright This query was put to Indian Agent Wright who had reported each quarter the number of Indians on the reservation and in reply he said that he would him take a census This was done and as a result he reported that he found only about 135 more Indians than Mr Lea bad found He thereupon accounted for the discrepancy between his original figures and those of Mr Lea by stating that ow ing to the epidemic which prevailed among the Indians last year and the prevalence of the measles and smallpox among the children the numbers had de creased Wont Do by Any Means Indian Commissioner Morgan looked over the report of the agency physician for the year ended June 30 1890 and found nineteen deaths reported and noth ing said of an epidemic He thereupon reached the conclusion that Agent Wrights explanation was hardly adequate to account for a mortality which had swept out existence 30 per cent of the Indians on the Rosebud agency A Hunt for the Hissing Ones Secretary Noble concurred in this view aad an ordjr has been issued directing that an investigation be made the affairs of the Rosebud agency with the view of

Euloe suggested that the house should iidopt the London prizering rules It was many minutes before order was restored and id required a vigorous wielding of the speakers gavel before tho clerk could pro ceed with tho rollcall The decision of the chair wsa sustained Cannon made a long explanation to show that his re mark had not been made in a vulgar tense and that the vulgar construction put upon it was forced Und unnatural He then made an elaborate argument in favor of the passage of the lard bill He laid tha bill was iu such a position that unless it was laid aside by unanimous consent no other business couldbe tnken up and so far as ho was concerned no other business should be done until this had been killed or passed by the louse McAdoo Not Satlstlou McAdoo was given two minutes in
