MEMBERS OF THE CONGRESS ENGAGE IN FISTICUFFS
Washington, Sept. 28—The Chambers of the House of Representatives today became a boxing ring for two honorable Representatives, and anarchy reigned for several minutes. The reason this fight started was because of accusations made by Representative Heflin of some Members of the House being “unpatriotic,” whereupon the fight began between Representative Heflin and Representative Norton; and as they were throwing punches right in front of the other members, this caused disruption amongst the others. The Speaker of the House attempted to intercede between the two, and some time later, there was peace; this however has currently become something much speculated upon in Washington.
