Controlling himself -with an effort,
bit still speaking very calmly and with
a caref 1'Jy modulated lone, Mr. McLiu-
iln continued, ' 1 would n t uae as
string language as 1 inteu t," he said
had ( not, ooo after li Senate met,
replied to these Insiauattons and said
that tbey were untrue."
There was an empuasU to tbe list
word that foreboded trouble, but Mr. Mc
Laurln was reserving tbe sentence
which stuug. ' I now say," he went on
dwelling wlili distinctive emphasis upon
every word and half turning toward bis
colleague, "tht that statement Is a will
ful, deliberate, and ssallciouo lie ! '
The challenge rang out through the
Senate chamber, wbsrelu was silence as
of death. McLaiirin did not hare a
cU.nce to ssy auotber word
lr. Tillman sprang from h;s seat.w'th
the rapidity aud almost the ftroclly of
a ll,'er.
Tliore were three desks between him
and where Mc Laurln was standing. The.
tlrst one, usually occupied by Senator
Bailey, of Texas, was empty. Tillman,
in his mad onslaught, pushed tho vacant
chair away with his knees. At the next
desk, Mr. Teller wss sitting. He was
swept aside by the angry Tillman. In
deed, tbe Infuriated Senator, placing
one baud upon Teller's shoulder and the
other upon Teller's desk, literally leaped
over him, In his effort to reach McLau
rin. Then there wm auolucr vacant
chair, where Senator Harris sits, and
this was almost over'urned as Tillman
rushed by It. Then the two South Car
olina Senators were face o face. The
wild charire of Tillman had taken but
the fraction of a second, and yet it
seemed as if an age had passed.
Even if the noise of scrambling over
desks bad not been suffl .lent to attract
M-iLaurin'H attention, he had lenly of
time to sco Tlllmsn ma My springing at
him. lie stood his gio ind. By the lime
rillruan was in front of htm, he hud
squared his arms to meet the impending
attack. On the floor Senators stood up
in their seats, and In the galleries half a
hundred people leaned over the railing
in their excitement, lillmsu rushed
upon McLaurin with Impetuous force.
Being left-handed, he aimed a wild blow
at his colleague with 1i!b left fiat. Ii
landed on McLaurln's forchisd just
over the right eye, although Its force
was partially spent upon McLaurln's
arm, wuicn fie naa raised in an enort to
parry the blow. In fact, Tillman's fist
passed across McLaurln's arm and fell
with a stinging blow upon McLaurln's
forehead, and then, with unimpeded
momemtum. glanced off into the face of
Mr. Layton, who was close behind Mc-
Laurln, having sprung forward at the
first sign of the encounter.
Instantly MeLaurin's right arm shot
out, the blow landing upon Tillman's
face, apparenty upon tbe nose. Again
Tillman struck out frantically, this time
with his right arm, but the blow fell
harmlessly upon McLaurln's shoulder.
Then followed a wild scrimmage, both
Senators clutching each other madly and
attempting to rain blows upon each

McLaurln and forced him into his seat.
