The doors were opened at 2 p. m., find the consideration of the deficiency- appropriation bill was then proceeded with—the committee amendments .being- acted upon as they were reached in the bill. WASHINGTON, March 1.—The session of the senate held Thursday night-was a deeidedly sensational one, .to say the least, consisting- as it did of a discussion of Senator Chandler's?(rep., X. IT.) resolution declaring- that there was no lawful election by thevlegisla- ture of Kansas when Senator-Martin •was declared, elected. Senator Chandler vehemently declared tha;t •when Senator Martin had " been declared elected, he had.-, come into the senate and completely renounced all pretensions of .populist affiliations, had possessed himself of nil the national patronage given, to Kansas, and had become one of the most uncompromising and relentless democrats in the senate. Senator Chandler then passed to the election of Senator Roach, of North Dakota, declaring 1 that it had been effected by interference and manipulation of the .basest sort. Senator Chandler charged Senator Gorman with having- thwarted investigation into Senator Roach's case. "And now," ho &aid, in his bitterest tones, "the cashier of the Citizens' national bank of Washing-ton represents the state of North Dakota in the appropriate gurb of a democratic senator." Returning- to Senator Martin's election, Senator Chandler, proceeded to show in detail the circumstances connected therewith in proof of his claim that there had been no lawful election. Senator Hill Replies. When Senator Chandler took his seat Senator Hill (dem.,N. Y.) rose and said that Senator Chandler's insinuations against brother senators were entirely uncalled for and would do neither him nor his party any good. The senator from New Hampshire had to say, something-to make Senator Martin feel uncomfortable in the last days of his senatorial term. He did not believe the senator had helped an honest, cause by the spectacle he had made of 'himself. jn»rtln'> Hot Word*."-.-. 1 .' Senator Martin (dem., Kan.).rose and proceeded to speak in the bittest tones and hardest wordsof Senator Chandler. If the statements which he hadVheard of that senator were true, or half true, "instead of representing the magnificent commonwealth of New Hampshire in the senate of the United States, he should be in the penitentiary." Senator Martin also spoke of the political contest in 1876 and of Senator Chandler's connection with what he called the attempt to steal and pleader the vote of every doubtful statiSin the union. "New Hampshire," fenator:.:.Martin continued, ."used |P he represented in the senate by men of splendid intellect; but 'the eagle h*d. twen drrrm ~ from its nest and a buzzard nad taken tne eagle's place and vomited forth its filth on every occasion.'" Senator Martin was not permitted to continue. He was called to order, and for some time there was much confusion and disorder, but finally Senator Martin .withdrew his objectionable words. LeglllatlTe Hill Paucd. It was nearly midnight when the personalities came to a close; and then the legislative bill was again open to amendments.

Mo.) moved to suspend the rules and pass the house joint resolution providing for the publication of the results of the dairy te.sts made at the Columbian exposition. Mr. Richardson (dem., Tenn.) and Mr. Payne (rep., N. Y.) opposed the resolution, the latter on the ground that itfls purpose would be to advertise one breed of cattle at the expense of the tax-payers. Mr. Henderson (rep., la.) protested against the government being used as a club to beat down one class of farmers in favor o£ another. Messrs.. Sibley (dem., Pa.) and Powers (rep.. Vt.) advocated the passage of the resolution, and Mr. Hatch closed the discussion in its favor-. The vote was taken by yeas and nays, resulting: Yeas, 143; nays, 12.1: present and not voting, 1.. Two-thirds not voting in the affirmative, the joint resolution failed of passage.
