It occurred during the consideration of a bill to permit the governors, of the territories to appoint certain officers of the territories in case of vacancies without the consent of the legislative councils, which Is now required by law. ' ' ' ; .; .. .• • -•'*, Mr, Bailey (Dem., Tex.) declared that every member on the floor realized the dangers of patronage. It^ created tt friction between senators and repre- sentfttlvesrdiscord between the "executive and legislative. More animosities have been created between the, executive and legislative branches of tha government by patronage said he, than all other questions combined. II was a, quarrel over patronage thai drove from the senate most of the brilliant-men who had been in that body in thirty years. It was, the heat o* the zeal for office which so influenced the brain of a madman that he shot down a president. " ' The pending bill was lost'sight of in the political maelstrom that followed. Mr. Flynn (Rep., 0. T.) aroused many of tho Republicans to applause by declaring that If he could have his way he would wipe out the civil service law and fill every office with a Republican in both, houses. '. • ,-Mr. Orpsvenor ridiculed the civil- Tond calculations clear out.

Mr. Orosvenor characterized the civil-service .law , as a "conspiracy" which had proved "the greatest power of the spoilsman." He termed it '"a law to pension incompetents," and said the people had at last discovered that it was a humbug. • Mr. Brosius, as the chairman of the civil-service* committee, had a final word.- He'declared that Mr. Groeven- or' B remarks "flashed the sword in the heart of the president-elect," and read from,Mr. McKinley's letter of acceptance his statement that In the matter -of-eIvll-servlce-reformThe~"would: r take .no backward step.':.

In the course of:tho debate Mr Wilson (rep., Wash.) alluded to the president's order withdrawing from tho public domain some 21,000,000 acres of land and constituting .various forest reservations. Mr. Clark (rep., Wyo.) made a vigorous speech, in which he criticised the president's order, He said it drew away from the public millions of acres of land which should have, been open to happy homes.
