But it is net at all certain e'thcr will pass tbe hpusc- tlie Lara Bill- Tl o southern men and tho few northern fn.M.ds of tho south are making a magnificent ii'ht igainst the compound lard bill. AHhougu the opponents of the bill number barely more th.m half it, alvjcates, c. final vote has not yet boon rrachcd, and some the more en- thusiastic opponents say it never will. Xll that saved the bill today was the fact that whenever a direct vote on it was taken tl-ii southern men would retire and leave the houbo without a quorum. Beed could not count them, for they would take their hats and umbrellas, leaving nothing for him to count. Had their hats remained, Reed would counted them, as he has done before to m.iko a quorum. "When a call of the house would be ordered, tho southern men would return, announce themselves present and then go out again. .Toe Cannon, of Illinois, Heed's lieutenant, became so angry that he introduced a reaolu- tioi. naming tne meu who retired when a vote T% as taker., and resolving that all leaves of ab- eence be revoked. Immediately the members who were named jumped to their feet almost in a body, and de- nounced Mr. Cannonfor attempting to censure them. Thero as great excitement for a time. "When matters became somewhat quiet, the members arose one by 0110 to questions of priv- ilege, and lit into Cannou without gloves. It just what they TV chance to talk. They continued it all the evening until ad- journment, and will go on tomorrow, probably, until Cannon withdraws his resolution. The proceedings tomorrow w ill probably be on the order of today and, if possible to pre- vent it, the democrats will not allow a vote on the bill thia session. The Georgia members are making a good against the bill. JudgeJCrisp led off this morniug with an argument against its consti- tutionality. Ho was followed by Mr. Blount and others. Georgia Matters. Denning's nomination as postmaster of Augusta still remains hung up- Clarkson yet seems determined to hare Major Boyce reap- Toointed. ___ Mr. and Mrs. J. "VST.

CHICAGO, August was discovered in McVieker's theater, on street, be- tween State and Dearborn streets, at o'clock this morning.
