la tha Local Lcssrl.l��tare..Xartlu and
McBride right Over Beat..
Victoria, Feb, 24-A sensational
light occurred in the Legislature this
afternoon. The bad feeling began thie
morning, when Mr. Martin took possession of th* Opposition caucus room,
and th* McBride section of the Opposition wa* lorced to retira to the coder
oommittee room for it* private deliberation*. In the Houso th* Government
arrangement of Mats placed Mr. McBride at the head of the Opposition
row of seats, wilh Mr. Martin next,
Mr. Curtis next, Mr. Tatlosv and then
Mr. Green of Kaslo,, the newly appointed Opposition whip.
On reassembling this afternoon the
row started. A contention arose between Mr. McBride end Mr. Martin for
Ibe seat at the end of the line, as tbe
official seat of th* leader of the Opposition. The Government had made the
selection of seats, as above stated, in
the morning, but a change was made
thie afternoon. Mr. McPhillips wa*
moved up beside Mr. McBride, and Mr.
Martin to near the lower end of the
row beside Mr. Helmcken.
When Mr. Martin entered the chamber and learned ol the change he became rery angry, and took up his post
behind Mr. McBride, who was already
seated. The action attracted every eye
in tbe House, and Mr. Martin's next
words could be heard plainly through
th* chamber. He called Mr. McBride
t bully and characterized hi* conduct
regarding the seats as iow and blackguardly.
"Is there anyone who will defend
thia?" shouted Mr. Martin.
Mr Smith Curtis was on hit feet io
a moment.
I will," be shouted back at Martin. " You have elated in an interview that you are no longer leader of
the Opposition. Go to the Government side of the House where you belong."
Mr. Prentice, from the Government
lid* of th* Home, aroae to defend Mr.
"What do you know abont it?"
called out Mr. Tatlow from the Opposition teat*. "Yuu can't regulate
the Oppoeition, You etay on th* Government side where you belong."
A moment later they came to blows.
Mr. Martin had aoated himself on a
chair reserved for a visitor and was
plainly exceedingly angry.
Aa prayer* were being read, he arose
unnoticed, and slipping forward, went
in behind Mr. McBride, who was
���tending, and took hi* aent.
Mr. Curtis pushed him back and ilid
into hi* ieat behind McBride. A* loon
a* the prayer* were concluded Curtia
grabbed Martlu by the throat and
pushed him back toward* Ihe wall.
There waa a rush of memben trom all
directions. Melon**, Gilmour and
other* grabbed Curtia and pulled him
off. There were cries ot "Shame* and
"Ordei" from all over Ihe House.
Mr, Martin wa* givin th* seat on *
ville of 19 to 16.
During th* adjournment atrraoou
search will be made for a mean* of
healing the difference* Failing in thi*
last resort to strengthen the Govern-
ment, dissolution on Monday 1* talked
of aa possibl*, although over sanguine
Oppositionists think that they coul**
form a itsble Government.
Victoria, Feb. 25���Th* Legislature
epent a couple of hour* today discussing the report* in the morning paper*
of the unseemly fight over the possession of a certain chair in theexecutire
chamber, yesterday, and then adjourned until Monday. There is said to be
a deal pending for an amalgamation of
the Government and Opposition force*
for the remainder of the session nt
least, and the dropping of Joseph Martin and his follower* by the Government. It i* furiher aaid that the Opposition decline to accede to the request
unless E. V. Bodwell, the Opposition
candidate for Ihe vacancy for the city
of Victoria, is included.
Victoria, Feb. 26.���The McBride
party was in caucus tonight. The de*
liberation lasted until nearly midnight.
It is gleaned from expressions of mem*
hers that the discussion resulted ia
nothing* The prospects are said to be
that reconciliation ia impossible unless
the premier retire*. Tin* final* is pre*
dictea by some within a few days.
Victoria, Feb. 25���"For certain rea-
sons I move that the Hous* stand adjourned until Monday next.'
Thi* (urprising motion cam* from
th* Premier today, shortly alter the
Home assembled, and was allowed tu
pass without objection or comment.
Tbe sudden adjournment ha* been
th* chief theme of discussion among
the member* to day. The prevailing
opinion is ihat the Government roa
lilt* iti inability to diicun business
und*r existing oondition*, and unlets
th* Opposition c*n be conciliated dissolution most follow.' Representations
have betn made to th* Oppoiiiion, look
ing to a combination strong enough to
itand independent ot Mr. Manin, whose
ability to dominate the Houu through
hi* possession of the balance of power,
and ill-concealed disposition to do so,
are a *ource of fear to the Government

"Waibington, Feb. 22.-Scarcely had
Senator Tillman resumed hi* aeat, after
a remarkable speech today, wben there
wae enacted one of the moat sensational scenes ev*r witnessed in the history of th* United Statss Senate.
Pale to tha lips and trembling with
the emotion whicli he endeavored to
control, Senator McLaurin, or South
Carolina, arose and addreesed the Senate, speaking to a question of personal
privilege. Imtantly a hush fell over
the Senate and over the throngs in the
galleries. The atmosphere seemed
chargod with exoitement. With
breathles* interest th* auditor*, both
on lhe floor and in the galleries, hung
upon every word uttered by tbe South
Carolina Sinator. Despite t he emotion
under which he labored, Senator McLaurin eeeined to be the calmest man
in ihe chamber. He spoke with deliberation and hia enunciation wa*
clear and distinct.
Mr. President," he began, "I rise
to a question ol personal privilege.
During my absence a moment from
the Sen*!* chamber, iu attendance up
on the committee on Indian affair*, th*
eenator who haa juat taken hia aeat
(Senator Tillman) said that improper
influences had been used iu changing
the vote of somebody oh the Paris
treaty, and then went on later and sail
that in applied to the Sanator from
South Carolloa, who had been given
the patronage in lhat State. I think I
got the seuss ol the controversy.
" 1 desire to state, Mr.  President, I
would not use s* strong languag* ** I
intend had I not, soon after the Senate
met, replied to then insinuations and
>id lhat they wen untrue.    I now
say,"  cominued  Senator  McLaurin,
with distinct   emphasis   upon   *v*ry
word, and turning toward*   his colleague, Senator Tillman, whosai in tha
samo row only three seats a-ay, isihat
tbe statement is a .wilful, maiiclou*

A notable event in the political history ut Canada was the organization
ot the Senato by the Liberal on Thursday of last week. Thit ha* been tha
flrst time in the thirty five years In
which Iho Senate has beon in exis'ence
that it has beeu possible tor lho Liberals to accomplish this. Heretofore
the Conservative senators, being in lho
majority, were in the habit, at the
opening of each session, of packing the
committee which struck the standing
committees. This committee in turn
loaded up the regular committees with
heavy C'onaerva'.ivii inajoriiiee. The
disproportion in lhe relative strength
ot ihe jinnies ou these com in in tea wns
absurd. Last year, for instance, suys
ihe Winnipeg Free Press, though the
Liberals numbered 40 per cent, of lhe
total membership, the Railway Com
niittco ot tho Semite numbered forty
'Conservative and eleven Liberals; and
a like proportion held in other committees. Thi* year, however, llie Lib
orals have a majority on the striking
committee. They secured this daapite
i lie protest of Sir Mackenzie Bowell,
who claimed that lho Ccnsrivntires
.till hod a majority of five. Techtii*
c.illy Sir Mackeuisie was correct, the
relative standing At the parlies beiug :
Conservative* 43, Liberal* 88. Bu.
majorities lhat cannot be polled are no
hotter than minor!ties; and ih* Liberal* having astuul possession of 'lis*
Senate are proceeding to reap the trull*
���t Victory. That Sir Mackenzie is
chagrined ut this stale of affairs I*
Ijulia probable; no man likes lo have

"Vou may be surprised to know, gentlemen, tbat I saw tho possibilities of *
great enterprise In that little statement.
My reasoning waa na followa: It 1* h woll
known faot tbat tho appottto for liquor
oan be entirely overcome In tho averax*
human being by tbe use of certain preparations of blohlorldeof gold. Wo hare then
two fncti���first, the appetite of the drunkard for liquor and the thint af tho mo*-
qnito for blood are practically identical;
���econd, tho desire for liquor can bo cured
by n iliople hypodormlo treatment. Ergo,
ynu hnvo only to discover a preparation
whleh will produce * similar result In the
mosquito and you havo freed the human
rnoo from oneot Iti chief souroesof annoyance.
"Yon oan Imagine my Joy wben tbl*
grand idea flnt flaihcd upon me. I aaw
myself hailed as a universal benofoctor.
Banquet* would be spread In my honor,
medals would decorate my breast, my po-
iltlon In life would be assured. I figured
that summer hotel proprietors alone would
yield uie on Independent Income.       ,
"Thero wore many dlflioultiei to be snr-
mounted, however. My first step wai to
gather a flu* collection at the Insects.
'J'hoy were In all stdgea of the blood drinking habit, from those who had but tasted
their firat drop to tbo old roundera who
Were tottering to a besotted end. An expert chemist und a well known naturalist,

than a month passed betoro my csslstnnta
had discovered o aolutlon whioh produced
the desired effect. Indeed, tho cure
brought aliunt suoh �� complete ebonge In
the character ot tbe Insects that they
Would eat their natural loud .Iron, the
palms of our hands, without ever attempt-
lug In moli-Kt us.
"Then came tlo fraction! application of
the euro on u largo .xalo. Wlillsi my sol-
omnia frli-nds hall been eenrchlng for the
euro which was Its work suoh wonders I
lind carefully evolved a plan for putting It
In (jsjcuatlon. Hy Idea was to estalillsh

regions whero tlio Insects nro bred In lnrge
m:ml*t-ra. l.<\rgo plntforma wore to lie

admin: u-rnur cure by hvj'oderinic Injections, liy'irately saturating tbo toot! with
the r-.ili.t1on the tmuo result wns produced.
If I I'lsl- not succeed In nttras-.sl.ig enough
mtissjultoes by this means, I bad In reserve
tho Idea of erecting a small hotel In close
liroxlmity tn my platforms. The verandas
w nulil be provided with hammocks, and
thn wimlowa with mosquito netting. I
could csihllyget n fcwpeoplo tospendafow

cntortnlnnient. I also planned to put up
my mosquito chloride tn ituoll bottles for
homo um, placing It on solo at all drug
stores. Then, were the firat stopi of my
enterprise. Of noun* I built my hopei
largely on tho belief that tho mosqultos*
that had boen cured would bring forth offspring In whom tho blood drinking bablt
would be entirely wanting. Having thui
obliterated tbe hereditary tendency to Intemperance, I counted on the ipoedy regeneration of the mosquito roots.
