Dcpny ALBANY, Feb. a row as broke up the Mnatc canal committee yesterday bas never been heard of In the capitol before. from the Canal and Harbor Pro- tection union of the state appeared before the senate canal committee awl submitted tbe following amendments to the canal rate regulation bill of Senator Laughlm: Tbat the bill include all railroads operating under charters granted by the state. The rates shall be as All grain, goods and other commodities being delivered free on board of boats or cars and alongside of ships; eastbound rates from Buffalo and Ton- awanda to New York: Wheat, 60 pounds to bushel, 5 rye, flanseed, 56 pounds to bushel, 4% barley, 48 pounds to bushel, 4 cents, innlt, 36 pounds to bushel, 3% cents; oats, pounds to bushel, cents, pine lumber, per feet, hard wood lumber in proportion; staves, flour, coal, iron, pockage goods and all heavy commodities, per not ton, 12, 10 cents per 100 pounds. Westbound rates from port of New York to Buffalo and Tonawanda: Grain, lumber, coal and everything in the line of merchan- dise, per net ton 5 cents per 100 pounds. President Depuy of the association pre- cented these amendments and asked for their adoption. Senator Laughlin, who had Just arrived, and who is chairman of the committee, was asked to allow Capt. Depuy to speak in favor of the state grain elevator bill. Then oc- curred such a scene as has never before marked a committee hearing at Albany. Senator Laughlin rose to his feet white with anger. "I refuse to listen to these he said, pointing to Capt. Clark and Capt. Depuy. "We represent all the boatmen on the canal and the people, said Capt Depuy. "You get out of the room or I will call an officer and have you put said Senator Laughlin, shaking his flrt across the table. Capt. Depuy shook his flst back and said: "We defy you. Wo represent the people, who object to being trampled upon by monop- olies like you represent." Senator Collins, who introduced the bill, and 8eimtor McNaughton both tried to calm the men down but without success. Assemblyman Harwood and O. P Potter to be heard bat Senator Laughlln grabbed up .his bills and saying; "I won't near those shot out of the room, Capt. Clark saying that "be was the creature of the Buffalo elevator bill." Tenators Collins and McNaughton agreed to secure a hearing upon the bill for the rep- resentatives of the Canal and Harbor Pro- jection union. Senator Laughlin declined to make a state- ment after the affair, but Capt. Dupuy stated that he represented all the canal men of tbe state and if Senator Laughlin could not hear them he should resign. Late last night Senator Laughlin said that le had not refused a hearing on the bill but had arranged for a joint hearing. He con- sidered that the resolution passed by the canal organization at the convention In New York were insulting to senators and be would lot listen to their arguments or with the committee when tbey appeared.

NEW Winn Another Game YORK. Feb. CT.-The ninth game of the billiard tournament wosplayexl last night at Chn kermg hall between Ue'orge Hlosson and Prank C. Ives, the "bov wonder Slos- sou won by a score of 500 to   report a bill that will cover the wishes of the Chicago people. Mr. Hitt ex plained to tin1 committee what the Chicago people desired. He stAted that Chicago anc tbo state of Illinois wore willing to conform to any changes that might be mado in the bill in the house. Concerning the govern- ment appropriation of provided for in the bill Mr. Hitt said that tbe represents lives from Chicago hail not asked for this and they were willing to abide by any reduc- tion in the amount that might bo made. There seemed lo be a disposition on the part of tho of Chicago as a sito for the fair, and of tun opponents to the holding of the exposition, to cut out this appropria- tion, The Chicago people would Iw perfectly willing tn agree to this if it wrra accom- plished. The fuct that the money pkilged to Chicago had been secured under a corpora- tion chartered by the stato of Illinois should, said Mr. Hitt, be recognized. Tho fair itself the .ijiiesentatives of Chicago preferred to hold under a national chai-ter. Concerning the commission of 100, Mr. Hilt said that they preferred that half of its members should be nominated by the governor of Illinois and half by tlie mayor of Chicago, to be ap- pointod by tho president. They also pre- ferred that the two conimitBinnwg from each state should be of tho two 1 parties. Mr. Hitt thought it would be well to pro- hibit the commission voting by proxy. Mr. Springer spoke briefly on the govern- ment appropriation. Before taking any ac- tion in this matter bo thought it would bo well to ascertain just how much was needed and then make the appropriation conform to that. He offurvd a resolution requesting tho secrelury of the treasury to furnish tho com- mittee an estimate of the cost of tup buildings necessary for the government exhibits; the coat of plai-inp; tho inhibits In the Uml.lmgn and the cost of their care and safe return to where they belong. This resolution waa passed and the committee adjourned. THE DAY IN CONGRESS. With Torn Down by the Wind.

Mr. Harris inquired of Mr. Chandler whether the statement which he was making wan such a "brief statement" as the mle con- templated in the presentation of petitions, and ndded that it was in direct violation of the rule. Mr. Chandler replied that he was not read- ing the petition, but %vas reading from as condensed a statement of it as he could make, in justice to the petitioners. Mr. Harris desired tbe ruling of tho chair on the question. Mr. Berry asked Mr. Chandler whether he bad himself prepared the statement he was making. Mr. Chandler replied that he had written it himself. Mr. thought so. It is not a peti- tion, but a collection of rot and tilth which the senator collected biniself. Mr. is a statement which I make on my own responsibility of the sub- stance of the petition. Mr. Harris again called on the chair for a ruling. The Vli'e statement has been made by the senator from New Hamp- shire tlmt the brief which br. ba.5 prepared is a condensed statement of the iietition.

The resolution was briefly discussed and at the suggestion of Mr. George, who is opposed to it, went over until to-day.

Instantly Mr ]nKaIis non- fled the senate that he would insist on having toe bill disposed ol at the earliest moment possible. Mr. I'engan's argument wa? directed chiefly against the constitutionality of the measure. Mr. Wilson of Maryland also argued in the same line. Mr. Hntlcr offered a resolution (which was agreed to) authorizing tbe select committee on the five civilized tribes of Indians to inves- tigate the status of the negotiations between the United States government and the Cher- okees in relation to tho Cherokee outlet with power to send for persons and papers.
