as tin- North is to soke its own no

Kind wolds trom Mr. Fields, and

Neither Mr. l ii Ids nor President

the Confederate' dead the reverence
for the lost cause ami he niiht
have realied something ot that deep,
undvinc; sentiment which still flow's
in southern hearts and burned bright
er as the years roll on. While there
is neither treason, nor hatred, nor re
gret in it. there- is nevertheless a con
sciousness of moral rectitude that
makes us teel all the mole bitterly
the humiliation of bciiuj under the
ban of northern triumph and northern
tvrannv. If we be friends and breth
ren then whv is this discrimination in
blessings and benefits kept up? It
the blue and the e,ray meet together
and sliake hands and declare all es-

we do not leel that we nave hehaved

we let 1 that we had a nht to do it,
and cvci'v decision made on that

that way. ami that is the reason why
the overnnient (lain t dare t trv
etiei'soti Davis for treason. Tiny
knew that their own Supreme Court
wouldn't let him be convicted. Then
w hv are we shut out trom shannr- in
the benefits and bl'-ssin-'S? How

Whv tlo diey all, both Democrats

or sweat, and it would come twice

w ish that Cube could r;ct ;i pe nsion
for himself and his mule ami a whole

his eves roll around and watch him
shift his tobacco from one jaw to the
other. Well, now in the abstract and
the concrete Cobe is just as much
entitled to a pension before the law
and before the Lord as any soldier in
the yankee nation. He lived riht
close by a darkey w ho oot a pension
ol Si, ooo all in a lump, and he never
done a thino but steal chickens for
the yankee ollicers. 1 read the oth

about a man applvino lor a pe nsion
because he cut his fool w ith an ax
that he biotioht home from the arm v.
He ",ot it, I lei kon, thevall oc t it, and
they never die.
1 wonder il thev wouldn't consent
to pension our Confederate widows?
They never foiiejil ninth, ami it
looks like they ha e sutli-retl enoiioh.

"Look here, Phil. You ami I
came came he-re together. We
have held our mouths loiii enoiioh.
We are altogether U modest. If
tin: fool-killer doesn't do his duty by
this Congress, that is no reason why
we should remain silent. We know
eiiouoh to tell what we know, ami we
must be heard."
Representative Thompson remind
ed him of the ail vice ;iven by Proc
tor Knott when thev first entered
Congress. "Don't be brash with
your mouth," the jreat Corncracker
observed. "Remember that little
boys sin mill be seen not heard."
"Yes," broke in McMillin, "but
we are so excessively modest, Phil
that we are neither seen nor heard.
Proctor Knott and the other fellows
seize the time beIoiiv;ini; to us, and
have put the I louse into a state of
coma. We must wake them up,
Phil, w e must wake them up. If we
don't do it, our constituents will wake
us up this fall. The nominating
Convention in my district miht. be
held six weeks trom now, and I
don't want to waste four years of my
life if I can he:lp it, I never thought
that I had much ability, Phil, but I
know that I can overlap some of
these statesmen, and I'm ijoin to
jump in 011 the first opportunitv,"
lie jumped in that very afternoon.
The' w;iter was not too deep for
him. Mr. Keifer was Speaker, The
Tennesscean oot the lloor for half an
hour, swapping time with Jim
McKenzic of Kentucky. A dreary
debate upon the tantt question was
m progress. A lew members were
asleep, many more were yawning,
and the others were bent over their
desks answering letters. As the res
onance of the vouii" lienton's voice
lii led the chamber, the letter writers
turned their heads ami regarded him
with querulous interest. Thev sat
with pens poised above paper listen
ing to his openi'icv. One by one the
pens were laid upon the desks. The
sleepers invoke, and there was no
nn u e yawning-. 1 leads were stretch
ed forward in the galleries. The
young man had caught the ear of the
House anil was charming it. There
w as no fustian in the woof of his ar
gument and no straining for effect.
He was talking the plainest common
sense in the plainest Anglo-Saxon.
In five minutes every seat near him
was filled. Every head was raised
in attention, and every ear was drink
ing in what he said. The speech
was clear-cut, svmnietrical, logical,
compact, and convincing. Phil
Thompson was delighted. Proctor
Knott surprised, and the whole
House enlightened. McMillin was
re-elected that kill, and from that day
to tli'.s has commanded the attention
of the House when rising to speak.
His versatility is remarkable. He
not only elucidates points under dis
cussion, but lie draws out informa
tion from others. He is equally at
home upon anv part t the field, It
the tin ill is under discussion, he
draws his cliivniore and deals the
hardest blows. Ilitisa Force bill
his work is even more effective.
I 'pop Indian aflairs, river and har
bor appropriations, complications
with foreign powers, geological sur
veys. District of Columbia affairs, as
tronomical observations, census mat
ters, railroad land grants, .and the
thousand and one similar subjects
brought to the attention ot Congress
he has di tinite ideas based upon
study and observation. He keeps
them upon tap for all who desire in
formation, lint he delights in parlia
mentary lore. Miinv ;i lance has
he broken with Tom Reed ami oth
er renowned Ri publican leaders.
In the last Congress he was ever at
the outposts. Then- were daily
skirmishe s, in which he distinguished
himself. In the the preceding Con
gress he was one of the assailed and
not an assailant. Mr. Carlisle called
him to the chair as often if not oftcn
er than anv other man, ami at one time
he was elected Speaker pro tern, by
the Ibmse itself. It was at such
time s that Tom Ivceel took delight i the opening fight against Reed's ar
in twanging arrows at him. And ; bitrary methods in counting a quor-
they were always returned with tlie.
v im of a hickory bow.
His power of endurance, accu
racy ed memory, ami quickness of
com ireheiision were never better
shown than in Gen. Oates' remarka
ble tight against the Direct Tax bill.
It was in the Fiftieth Congress, when j
filibustering was in its heyhay. Tom j
Reed championed the effort to take !
over Si 7,000,000 from the Treasury j
backed by the entire Republican ;
phalanx and by a few Democrats j
w 'lie se States were to be benefitted
by the spoliation. Through the ef-j
forts of Oates, McMillin, and others, I
and the veto ot Grover Cleveland, I
the project was reserved for the Bil-
limi Congress and P.enjamin Han i-1
son. Without this the Republican '
prodigality would have fallen a little!
short of ;i billion. Xo one who par- '
ticipated in Oates' great fight against
the bill can ever forget it. It Listed
ten days and ten nights, the session !
being almost continuous. It was a '
genuine parliamentary struggle, Ev-'
erj' device known to parliamentary
law was used to obstruct the passage
of the bill. Tom Reed was a re
lentless leader upon the floor.
Racked by his own party and by far
more than a corporal's guard of
Democrats, he accepted the issue,
and determined to make it a qut.s
tion of physical endurance. The
tight was hot from the beginning.
On the second night - Speaker Car
lisle's strength gave out. Along in
the afternoon Clifton R. P.reckinridgi
h;id moved to excuse Mr. McMillin
from voting upon a subsidiary mo
tion. It was done on behalf of the
minority, to waste time. Tom Reed
instantly raised a point of order. A
terrific war of words followed. It
lasted until long after d ak. Reed
was at his best in denunciation of tin
proposition, and Oiites held his ow n
without flirching. About S o'clock,
as ne.c.lc ewivbodv was hoarse, Mr.
Carlisle announced his decision. He
decided the motion in order, and, as
was his custom, cited the authorities
for the decision. He then called Mr.
McMillin to the chair ami retired to
Tom Reed wa. in ecstacy when
he saw the Teiiiiesscan take the gav
el. With Carlisle out of tin- way he
saw, as he supposed, an opportuiiitv
either to shame the Speaker m to
make the filibusters ridiculous, lie
promptly got the yeas and nays on
the motion to excuse Mr,, McMillin
trom voting, ami moved to excuse
Mr. Cannon from voting' on the mo
tion to excuse the gentleman from
Tennessee. This opi ned a new and
vast parliamentary vista. The next
motion would be to move Mr. Mills
or some one else be excused from vo
ting on the motion to excuse Mr.
Cannon, and so on, until each one
of the 3,0 members of the I louse
was resting under a similar motion.
Tom Reed was chuckling and
shaking his head in g'e-c. His fol
lowers were smiling in admiration of
his adroitness. It seemed plain to
them that if a motion to excuse- Mc
Millin from voting was in order,
;i motion to excuse . Cannon must
be equally in order. McMillin
must either overrule Carlisle's
decision en' deadlock the House'
until the end of the Fiftieth Cemrress.
The Tcnnessean was eejual to the
emergency. He did neither. He
decided the motion out of order,
saying that he knew there- was
a precedent for his action,
but that he was not able then
to lay his hand upon it. There
was derisive laughter upon the
Republican siele of the chamber.
R eeil's friends evidently took no
stock in the alleged precedent. Mc
Millin was contielent that his memory
was correct. He sent for Mr. Car
lisle, but that gentleman hail gone
home for the night. He appealed to
Mr. Ranelall's receillection in vain.
Sam saiel that his ruling was incor
rect. Mr. McMillin then sent Clerk
Towles for the journals of the House.
The Clerk returned in a few mo
ments ami reported that the doors
wire lockeel, anil he could not get at
"Rre-iik open the door, then,"
A 1 1 1 1 111 undauntedly replied
know I'm riht. I must hav.
Meantime, Tom Reed and Joe
Cannon we re showering him with
sarcasm. His own associates were
regarding him with critical eves. An
appeal had bee n taken, when Towles
returned with the journals. There
was no nervousness about the-Speaker
pro lehl. He-se lected a volume
and ope neel it as calmlv is it he was
searching tor a passage trom the
Scriptures. He found what he
sought without trouble. It was a
decision from Speaker Colfax whieh
sustained the- ruling of Mr. McMillin.
The reasons for the apparently di
v erse rulings w en-deal ly and com
pactlv staled. Thev were, that
while under the C mstitutii m ev e-ry ar
lianie-ntary latitude should be-allowed
the ininoritv.no motion was in
order that paralyze d tin- I louse and
made it utlei'lv unable to do business.
Tom Ree el's jaw fe ll as In- took
his seat. Joe Cannon looked as il
he- had heard of the de-ath of a near
friend. The yeas and navs on the
appe-al wa re- not pre ssed, and the ap
peal itself was withdrawn. Mc.Millin's
v ictory was complete, and Sam Ran
dall was the first man to congratu
late him. When McMillin lilt the
chair the next day he had not lain
down nor slept for torty-nine hours.
This is tlie only bout that Tom
Re-eel ever hiid with McMillin while
the latter was in the chair. In late-r
days, when Reed be e amc- Speaker,
McMillin returned the compliment
with interest. While Mr. Crisp led
11111 umler general parliamentary law,
McMillin proved an able lieute nant.
After the adoption of the rules he
rn; de them his study. He was pnb
ab y as well versed in them as their
authors. While they bound the mi
nority hand and foot, tin y were
equally" binding upon the Speaker,
Mr. Reed did not always recognize
this. The instant he overstepped
the boumls he found McMillin upon
his back. With fair play from the
Chair, the Tenmsseean always drove
him back, but he was never assuree!
of fair play. The Speaker would
take the floor from unde r his feet by
transferring his recognitions, or
would ignore him entirely. Many a
tight did McMillin make with his
right hand tied behind him. He
knew the value of time, ami utilized
every se cond allovveel him.
A case in point was the Jmliciary
bill as moulded by Senator Fvarts.
It provided for the appointment of
nine additional United Stales Circuit
Judges. The Committe e on Rules
forced it through the I b nse- umler a
special order. The report was made
after the fall elections. The- Re e d
rules gave the Democrats twenty
minutes after the previous question
was demanded, provided no discus
sion had preceded the de-maml. To
cut oil" this twenty minutes allow ance
Tom Reeel recognized Joseph Can
non, win) made a few remarks be fmv
demanding the previous question.
He acknowledged that hi' did so to
rob the Democrats of the time allow
eel them. Reed ruled that his re
marks aniourteel te discussion, and
was about to put the previous ques
tion when McMillin indignantly pro
tested. He said that it w as a qm-s
tion of increasing expenditures and a
proposition to care for the dead
ducks in the House-. "It is I lie foiv
runner of divers either bills," In
shouted, "intende-d to bleed tin
Treasury, now lb it you linger sep.
llmis on the stage- after having be. u
I here- was tremendous applause
from the I )eniocr;its. McMillin pro
ti'steel so strenuously against be:u
gagge'd that Cannon derisively said :
"I will yie-lel the- gentleman three
minute's, so that he- may get all la
bile ott his stomach."
McMillin promptly accept, , t T 1 -time-,
although neither just nor su'u
e ient. Never was thre e- minutes bet
ter used. He' .showed that 11 ii, li 1
the special order no opportunity for
amendment was allowed. Mistakes
were sure to follow . The House was
tolel by the Committee on Rules that
it was not tit to gove rn either tin
country en-itself, ami that tin- com
mittee itself intendeel to gove rn both.
Miirk the seque-1. McMillin prov
ed a prophet. The bill was e rowdul
through the House, umler the sp,-. i.t!
eireler, without amendine-nt. Afte-r it
was signeel by the Pivsidrnt, and
Congre ss had adjourned, it was found
to be so loose ly drawn as to be utter
ly inoperative. It upset the calemlar
ot the Supreme Court .ami raised
Neel generally. It provieled that the
Judges shemld be appointed by the
1 resident, with the aelvice .and con
sent of the Senate. As Congn ss had
adjourned, the advice and conse nt of
the Senate coulel not be obuimd.
and the President coulel not make the
appointments. The Constitution em
powers him to fill only vacancies, am!
in this case there really was no va
cancies to till.
