I * HITCHES IN BOTH HOUSES. Senate Proceedings. Mr. Edmunds, from the committed on the Judiciary, reported adversely in tne Senate to-day the House hill to provide for the restoration of citizenship or such citizens of the United States as have become naturalized citizens of Great Britain. Mr. Tabor offered a Joint resolution providing for participation hy the government in the national mining and industrial exposition to bs held at Denver, col. THE TARIFF CONFERENCE. I A message was received announcing the names of the House conferees on the Internal revenue and tariff bUL At Mr. Garland's request tho message was read. Mr. Garland asked to have read from the Congressional Record the resolution of the House in- I strueting Its conferees "to consider fully the constitutional objections to the Internal revenue bill} as amended by the senate, afad to bring the same, togetner with the opinion of the House In regard thereto, before the committee of conference," etc., I and moved to reconsider the motion by which the I Senate hod agreed to a conference. Mr. Ingalls raised the point of order that It was I not in order to read or to refer to particular words or acts of the other heuse upon pending measurea , The matter which Mr. Garland deslred'read not having yet been speclflod, tl" iPresident said there I was no such question before the Senate. .. Mr. Ingalls said that if th$chair would inspect the in itter proposed to be read he would see that I It was a report of the action of the House of Representatives on a measure pending between the two houses; and while he (Mr. Ingalls) thought that the action of the House was disingenuous, and that under It a " full and free conterence " could not be had, he yet thought that it was not in onier to ncad extracts from the record as the 1 basis for a motion to reconsider. Mr. Garland said that what he desired to have read was contained In the official record, mode for I the express purpose of Informing Congress and the public of what was being done. I The President said he Baw no objection to reading the resolution, and overruled the point of order. Mr. Bayard thought It was not in order to have the record of the House proceedings read for the purpose of affecting the action of the Senate. He agreed with Mr. Garland, that the Senate had ap- j pointed its committee for a full and free conference and no other, and said that if, upon meeting the House committee, the conferees on the part of the Senate should And that such a conference could not be had, It would be their duty to return and report that fact to the Senate. Mr. Garland said that his motion to reconsider was maile In good faith. After further debate, the Senate, by a vote of 26 to 24, defeated a motion offered by Mr. Edmunds to lay Mr. Garland's motion on the table. AN AGREEMENT REACHED. The President having Anally ruled that It was I not in order to read the action of the House from the record as Mr. Garland had proposed, Mr. Garland appealed from the decision. After the question had been debated for some time, Mr. Ingalls offered a resolution declaring it to be the opinion of the Senate that the conrerenoe should be full and free, and Instructing the Senate conferees If they found that any limitation was placed by the House on the action of its committee to retire and report that fact to the Senate for its consideration. Mr. Sherman at fli>t objected to the resolution, but withdrew his objection later, and the resolution was agreed to without ? division. I Mr. Garland then withdrew his appeal, and the Senate resumed the consideration of the bill to !;lve increased pensions to one-armed and oneegged soldiers. House of Representatives* 1TEPPRS. RANDAL!.. MORRISON AND TUCKEIi DECLINB TO SERVE ON THE CONFERENCE COMMITTEE ON THE TARIFF BILL. Immediately after the reading of the Journal, Mr. Randall rose and said:?Mr. Speaker, If I had followed my Impulses on the moment of the announcement of the conferees on the part of the I House on the differences between the two Houses in reference to tax and tirlff legislation, I would have then and there declined service, but I preferred to act after reflection and deliberation, and thus avoid the semblance of what might be thought hasty action. Seldom, If ever, during my service in this House, have I avoided duty or responsibility, but in this Instance I feel I can better serve the interests of my state by a relinquishment of tho labor assigned to me. I am the more reconciled to this course because of the fact that I leave behind me on the committee or conference a member representing my own state, and in fact my own city, one who has devoted a lifetime to the subjects in controversy. Whatever report may come as a result of this action of the House, when I It is presented, I shall be more at liberty to pur- I sue such a course on its consideration as will en- J able me to best promote the great Industrial In- I terests of the country as to rates and within I proper limitation. Therefore, Mr. Speaker, I ask to oe relieved from the service you were kind enough to assign me to. Mr. Anderson sarcastically suggested that Mr. Russell Errett be appointed to nil tlie vacancy. The Speaker.?The gentleman will be relieved, and the chair appoints Mr. Morrison. " I respectfully decline to serve," said Mr. Morrison, rising. The Speaker.?The chair will appoint to fill the vacancy occasioned by the declination the gentleman from Virginia, Mr. Tucker. "As the third appointee," said Mr. Tucker, "I j decline to serve." The Speaker.?The chair will take the matter under consideration. MR. COX APOLOGIZES. Mr. Page, of California, rising to a question of privilege, called attention ?o some sharp words which had passed between Mr. Cox (New York) and himself last evening, aud expressed his hope that the gentleman would "see fit to offer an apology for his personal remarks. Mr. Cox expressed his high regard for the gentleman from California, and said: My friend is going home to California, and I would not have him take away a single feeling of resentment against me; therefore, in the presence of the House I make the amplest apology. [Applause.] Mr. Paul, of Virginia, from the committee on elections, reported a resolution granting 14,675 to M. D. Ball to cover his expenses In seeking to be admitted as a delegate from Alaska.

Also a number of army promotions and thirty-one postmasters. conference committee on the senate tariff bill. In the House yesterday, after our report closed, Mr. Haskell's substitute for Mr. Hammond's resolution was adopted. It provides that the conferees on the part of the House on the conference committee on the Senate tariff bill consider rully the constitutional objection to said bill as amended by the Senate, "and to bring the same, together with the opinion of the House in respect thereto, before said committee on conference, and ir nocessary In their opinion, after having conferred with the Senate conferees, said conferees on said committee may make report to the House in regard to said bill herein referred to." The tariff bill was then called up, the Senate amendments non-concurred In and the bill sent to a conference committee. The conferees on the part of the House are Messrs. Kelley, McKlnley, Haskell, Randall and Carlisle, and on the part of the 8enate Messrs. Morrill, Sherman, Aldrleh, Bayard and Beck. The protectionists of the conference committee are:?Messrs. Morrill. Sherman, Aldrleh, Kelly, Haskell and McKlnley, six out of the ten members. Mr. Beck, of Kentucky, Is a revenue reformer, with rree trade leanings, and Mr. Bayard is for revenue reform, with leanings toward protection. The feeltng at the Capitol Is that the conference managers will agree upon some bill, but whether both Houses will sustain the conference report Is another thing upon which many men have many minds. If the Senate bill Is amended by the conference managers so as to increase the rates on iron, steel and wool, it will meet with persistent objection from the democrats. On the other hand, It the iron and steel rates are not advanced, the Ohio and Pennsylvania members will probably oppose the bill. 8ome very clear headed members think the tariff bill will fall, and that all that will be gotten through will be the Internal revenue features of the Senate bill, which Is after all the bill passed by the House last year, with a further reduction of the tax on tobacco and cigars disapproval of minister partridge's action. The Secretary of State yesterday submitted a report to the Senate embodying the disapproval of the government of the action of Minister Partridge in inviting European interference to secure peace between Peru and ChllL m Washington News and Gossip.

THE FORMES SAID HE NEVER GAVE HI8 REGARD TO PUPPEE8, AND THE LATTER RETORTED YOU ARE "A DIRTY DOG." When the .star route trial was resumed tills morning Mr. Ingersoll continued Ills cross-examination of Rerdell. beginning first with questions concerning the various papers which the witness Identified In his examination a* having been written by Dorsey, who the witness testified signed the name of J. M. Peck to a number of papers. sharp colloquy between me8sh3. mkkhick and ingersoll. The witness said he thought It was In the month of June that he went with Dorsey to Mlddleton's bank before going to Brady's officeMr. Ingersoll having pn-s^ed a question about the checks before the witness had finished his reply, Mr. Merrick said: "I object, your honor." "I don't care about your objection. I am through with that," said Mr. Ingersoll, sharply. "I object to It," repealed Mr. Merrick to the court. "Were you Interrupted In your reply?" asked the court of the witness. Yes, sir," said the witness. * 1 don't wish," said Mr. Iagersoll, "to be Interrupted by the prosecution." " I don't regard the wishes of counsel in making objections," said Mr. Merrick. "Anil," said Mr. Ingersoll, "the counsel does not wish your regard." " He can't have It," said Mr. Merrick. J "He would," said Mr. ingersoll very slowly, "consider It an insult." Mr. Merrick, turning in his chair so as to face Mr. Ingersoll, said with treat distinctness, " I never give my regard to puppies." " You dont," exclaimed Mr. Ingersoll, trembling with indignation, and seizing an inkstand; "you are a dirty aog." Judge WylFe had while these remarks were being made pounded upon his de*k, and endeavored to restrain the gentlemen. | mr. merrick expresses his regret. j Mr. Merrick, now turning to the court, said "may It please your honor, the remarks of counsel Sressed me beyond all human endurance. I was olng nothing but exercising the privilege of counsel, and an attack so wanton " j "The language," said Judge Wylle, "is Inexcusable under any provocation." j "I am sorry," said Mr. Merrick, "that I was provoked to use such language. No man respects the dignity of the court more than I do, and no living man has endeavored more than 1 to conduct him- } self In accordance with the rules of professional courtesy. I bow with humble submission to the court." i "I think," said Judge Wylle to Mr. Merrick, " that it is due to yourself to retract that epithet." "If your honor says so," Mr. Merrick answered, "I will retract It with submission to the court. Now make the counsel himself retract what he said. I make su:h retraction from respect to the court and under the Instruction of the court." i mr. ingersoll disclaims disrespect to the cocrt. " From the first," said Mr. Ingersoll, rising after Mr. Merrick had taken his seat, 441 have deplored tbe fact of the slightest feeling between counsel for the government and counsel for the defense, I have regretted It from the first. I will say that I this is the first trial I have ever been engaged in where such feeling has existed. I have endeavored to be kind and to be fair. If I have done anything that could be tortured into disrespect to your honor I am glad to take that part back. All else I said was In reply to remarks of such a character that I could not but retaliate on the spot" Mr. Ingersoll, continuing, said that he wanted no personal difficulty, but he proposed to defend himself. "I would do It," he declared, bringing his hand down, 44at the day of judgment wore I assailed by God. I would defend myself with all my little, puny power." No man, be said, could run over him. He hoped that this personal feeling would stop, and promised from this time out to endeavor to conform to every rule. judge wtl1e sato The court has been obliged to look upon the occurrence as an altercation between oounsel, and the court did not feel called upon to vindicate Itself from any act of contempt, any further than any disorder Is a technical offense against the court He regretted exceedingly that there was any bad feeling against oounsel. It seemed here, to sp?ak figuratively, to be a word and a blow, and that was not the kind of spirit to prevail In a trlaL If counsel would only put on a hydraulic press upon their temper they would all experience an advantage from It He thought the counsel for derense in error In pushing another question before the witness had finished his reply to tbe first and counsel for tbe prosecution was right In protecting the witness. He thought counsel for the defense was In a false position, but alter the quarrel , begun he must say that tbe epithet used by Mr. Merrick was one not to be used In court Mr. Mer- i rick had magnanimously withdrawn the epithet and the counsel for the defense had in a general way disclaimed all Intention of disrespect to the 1 court He urged hereafter that they might have 1 at least an armed neutrality. 11 Mr. Ingersoll made another speech, saying that i if Mr. Merrick's remark was withdrawn,not by or- , der of the court, he would gladly withdraw any- < thing be said, as no man had to go more than half ] way to meet him. Mr. Merrick said the unpleasantness between I counsel was Inaugurated after the close of the last trial by an extremely harsh speech by the 1 counsel who had Just taken his seat In reference I to one of his (Mr. Merrick'*) colleagues. . "We can't go into that," said Judge Wylle hastily. I j Mr. Merrick then reviewing the remarks of counsel said that tbe first insult was offered by Mr. Ingersoll, in saying that he would regard his i (Mr. Merrick's) regard as an Insult When the , counsel who thus began blotted out his remarks, he would withdraw what he had said with pleasure. Otherwise he would only withdraw his words out of respect for the court I ] blotting out the obnoxious words?let us have i peace. | "I ask now," said Mr. Ingersoll, "to have all the record of that colloquy blotted out" j "I second the request most heartily," said Mr. I Merrick with a smile, "and join the counsel in the request to blot out the past" let us have peace. "Then," said Mr. Ingersoll, "let us have peace. Let us blot out the past" Mr. BUss, rising, read from the record Mr. Ingersoll made about him In his opening address, when he (Mr. BUss) was not In court, a statement tbat he (Mr. Ingereoll) would not believe such a man 1 when he told the time of the day without first looking at a clock. ^ Mr. Ingersoll said he was willing to have that remark blotted out if the counsel desired It Judge Wylle here interrupted further colloquy, and the examination proceeded. I : Mr. Ingersoll wanted to sbow by the witness that 8. W. Dorsey bad paid Mr. Wllshlre to act as Dorsey's counsel, but Judge Wylle would not ad- j mlt the question.

FLINPEK AND M*n?VITT. A Star reporter met Private Detective Fllnder In company with ex-Dftectlve McDcvltt this morning. Mr. Fllnder denied the rumors that he had m ide a statement implicating McDevttt, adding that he could make no statement against Mcltovltt as he knew nothing to s*v. When asked If the report that he would go before the (rrmd luryaan witness was true, be said that he had not been, summoned berore the pran l jury, but ir h" whs he would be glad to do so, and waive all prlvllAirea concerning testimony that n.lght criminate himSClU THE ACCUSED PARTIES WEAEEVINO. As tho Investigation by th1: grand Jury of tbo charges against the late detectives progresses tha efforts of those directly or Indirectly Implicated to make themselves safe tends to throw new light on the subject. The Information thus obtained In regard to two well known cases Is very complete. and It further furnishes a hold upon parties who have been unwilling io give evidence. Ti ls weakenlng on the nart of the accused has assumed ?uch proportions t*iat it ha^ givon rise to th?"* hm^rtitnir comment that when the cases come to trial all tho defendants wdl become witnesses for the prosecution. WHAT THE COMMISSIONERS SAT. In relation to the indictments found by tbo grand Jury against the detectives and thieve?, and the results which have followed, the Commit. sloners have very little to say, oth?*r than that the work Is not yet completed by any means, and that other prosecutions will certainly follow until tbe mo_l"!'1 atmosphere In Washington Is somewhat punned.
