.Action on Isthmian Canal Treaty.
iJ.v Kxrhbiva Wiie from 'I he At pi ialeil Press.
Washington, P. C, Dec. !). The sen
ate chamber was the scum of a highly
dinmatlo episode today when Senator
Tillman. of South Carolina, challenged ;
his colleague. Senator McLutiiln, to to- j
sign with him on the spot. In order, to j
use his own language, that they might
he able "to wash their dirty linen at
home." Mr. McLaurln did not take up
the gauge. The incident today was Hil
diieet sequel of the very bitter con
troversy which arose between the sen
ators In South Carolina last spring.
Mr. McLaurln arose to a question of
personal privilege today and proceeded
to explain what he charged was a con
spiracy to discredit him In his own
state for acts and views which did not
meet the approval of certain Democrat
ic leaders. lie declared that he was
being humiliated and according to pub
lic 1)1 hits was to be excluded from the
Democratic caucus because he had act
ed upon certain public Issues in a way
which lie considered was for the best
Interests of the country and the people
of his state. He announced himself a
believer in the old Democracy and after
denouncing the new Democratic load
ers who, he said, had brought destruc
tion upon the party, declaied that ho
could not be driven from bis old alle
glnnro into ix party with which he did
not care to atllllate.
Senator Jones, chairman of the Dem
ocratic committee, denied that he had
any "ulterior motives" In not Inviting
Mr. MoLaurln to enter the caucus. Mr.
Tillman reviewed the whole eontro
ersy. Mr. Hoar took occasion to ex
press the opinion that it was very
doubtful whether both the South Caro
lina seats in the senate were not in
reality vacant. Ho contended that
when he lesignations were offered last
spring to the governor they could not
be withdrawn thereafter, having be
come immediately operative. The clim
ax came when Senator Tillman chal
lenged Mr. Mr. l.aurin to join with him
In pieparlng their joint resignations
and handing them to the presiding oill
eer of the senate. This challenge Mr.
McLnurin did not accept and the epis
ode was brought to an abrupt close by
Senator Lodge moving an executive
Senator Lodge presented in executive
session the report of the committee on
foreign relations rcoommendlng favor
able action upon the Huy-Puuncofote
isthmian canal treaty and gave notice:
that tomorrow ho would ask the sen
ale to go Into executive session lor the
consideration of the treaty, repeating
the request each day until the senate
should act upon It.
The report of the committee on ju
diciary recommending the continuation
of Attorney fleneral Knox was sub
mitted but went over until tomorrow,
Mr. Hoar's Resolution.
Mr. llo.ir (Mass.) olfered a resolu
tion to authorize tho president to enter
into negotiations with other civilized
countries for tho purpose of selecting
soma Island or other suitable territory
to which might bo transported and
confined persons Instigating or coun
seling the destruction of all govern
liient, or those utleinptlng the lives of
chief magistrates. The resolution was
referred to the committee on foreign
A stir in tho chamber followed, when
Mr. MoLutirlll (S. C.) uiose to a ques
tion of poisonnl privilege, lie had be
fore him a lingo pile of mauuscilpt.
"I arise to a question of peisonal
privilege in connection with the pub
lished statement thnt I have been e.
i laded fiiini participation in tho Demo
cratic pally," ho aniiouuced, Willi evi
dence of considerable emotion ho pin
eroded to explain that If such was the
case and If he was to ho without as
signment upon committees the light of
his state, which he In part represented
III tho senate, would suiter. Tho only
notice ho had over had, ho said, that
ho was to tin excluded fintn tho Demo
initio caucus camo last spilng, lieforo
tho adjournment of tho senate, when
tho eluilrniaii of the Democratic na
tional comminltlee in tho cloak room
asked him why lie no longer attended
tho Domocrallo caucuses. He irplled
that In view of his opinion of tho qiics
tlons glowing out of tin) Kpanlsli war,
ho thought his piesenco might ho cm
barrusslng. The Democratic chairman
had replied: "Then, perhaps, It would
be less embarrassing to y not to be
invited to tho caucus."
Mr. MoLuiiiiu wild ho had tcpllcd.
This Incident, Mr. Mcl.auiln de
clared, was tho culmination of a long
series of events in u contest waged by
an clement of tho Democratic party
Tho eutlro sewilo by this time had
become. Inteiestcd. Sovcial Itepubll
cans crossed lo the Democratic side,
to bo better able to listen to what Mr.
MoLuurlii had to say.
Continuing Mr, Mcl.aurln said ho
Would ho silent did ho not four thut
the movements against him was one to
keep alive sectionalism. For many
years the people of the south had real
ized that they had not obtained their
fine share of the national benellts. Mr.
Mcl.auiln recalled the fact that al
though Samuel J. Randall had advo
cated n protective tarllf be had been
voted for In a Democratic national
convention for president. Hancock, al
though he declared that the tarllf wns
a local Issue had hern nmiiltniti.it for
president and David I!, lllll. although
lie opposed the Income tax had not
been road out of the Democratic party.
Indorsed by His People.
The holding of such Iows by north
ern men, no matter how diverse, did not
endanger the position of certain politi
cal leaders and i onscquently they wcie
Immune tiom attack. Hut when a
southern man, said Mr. McLuttrin, tried
to get the buueilt of th" tariff for his
people, thoe whose political career
might he ended by the success of his
efforts were leady to ciush and humil
iate him. lie had onntonded thi'l If
the tariff was a robbery his section
should shaie In the booty, t'pon the
lsue of that speech he had later gone
Into a campaign in South Carolina,
and although his Democracy hail been
attacked upon the stump the people of
his state had endorsed him. He de
claied that iluilng thai campaign "cal
umny, falsehood and trickery" never
betoio equalled In American politics
had been employed. Now tho principal
charge against him was dining the Mc
Klnlpy ndinlnistiation that ho had been
"bought" by patronage and that he
had renewed his former contract with
President Itoosevelt. Entertaining the
high peisonal regard that he did for
both the late president and his succes
sor, Mr. Mel.aurin said it would be un
necessary for him to say that nelthir
would stoop lo so ignoble an act. It
was true that an unfortunate condition
of atfahs had existed In his stale and
thut he had recommended good men for
olllces, because he did not desire to see
a repetition ol the horrible affairs at
Lakeville, when a negro postmaster
had been burned to death. He had
voted for the war with Spain and de
clared that in the same spirit in which
he had cast that vote he felt that he
was compelled to support the adminis
tration that conducted It.
He still thought that the conduct of
the war should have been non-partisan
and during its progress he had never
heard from President Mel:inle's lips
a word concerning party advantage.
Mr. .Mcl.auiln paid a high tribute to
tile late president, whom he character
ized as a "broad statesman and Chris
While without oflleial knowledge of
the charges hi ought against him by
his Democratic lollragues from the
newspapers he understood that the
principal charges were thai he had not
opposed the ratification of the tieaty
of peace with Spain; that he had up
held the adm.nlstratlou In Its efforta
to restore onlor in the Philippines and
to thnt end had voted for an increase
in the standing army, and that he was
In favor of the upbuilding of the
Anioilonn merchant 'I'.r'no.
"If these are the only chaigcs," said
he, diamatlcnlly, "ihey aie true and I
glory in them."
Could Not Stifle Conscience.
He said he had not wished to vote
against Ills yarty upon the question of
ratifying the peace treaty and had It
not been for the reopening, of hostili
ties In the Philippines he would have
deferred to the opinion of his col
leagues. Hal he declared "the dictates
of reason and conrcloiu-e should not be
stilled by the party lash." With bitter
words Mr. Mcl.auiln thin proceeded to
excoriate the new- leaders of the Dem
ocracy, who, he said, had guided the
party to its destruction during the last
six years and was trying to crucify
those who seek to draw the Democratic
paity back to Its old alleglanie, He
still proposed, he said, to vote In his
Judgmuil for what he believed to be
liking the lines of Democratic princi
ples but be did not pioposo to place
himself against a pioposltlon which he
believed lo be for the best Interests of
the people simply because It was advo
cated bv Iteinibllcanii.
In conclusion, he said lie did not pin
pose to be driven fiuni his own purtv
nor to be forced Into atlillatlon with the

and of their siibseeiueilt withdrawal on

Mr MoLutii Ill's charge of conspiracy p

Democratic caucus, Mr, Tillman called
attention to the fact that ho had not
been in Washington during the extra
session of the senate lest spring,
"Tills consplrncy," he si'd, "In a

Mr. Hoar (Mass.) adeliessed himself
to the legality of the resignations,
which the South Carolina senators had
sent to the governor of tbi'lr state. Ho
declared that the lesignations or a leg

such resignations could be withdrawn.
He mild that a man could not be kept

pointing out with outstretched atui to

All eyes woie turned on Mr. MeLau
