House Disagrees With Senate
(RULE CHOKES OPPOSITION
fCnnnoa 'Carries Out Programme
With Small Majority, Insur
gents Holding Out 'to Last.
Adam Bcdc, Humorist.
WASHINGTON. March . 22. The
fstatohood bill was taken from the
Speaker's table in the House today,
placed in the hands of three selected
conferees and a request made of the
Senate for a conference on the disa
greeing votes of the two houses. This
action was not accomplished without
mnny words and votes. It was devel
oped, howevor, that there were votes
enough to carry out the programme of
the leaders. Then followed 40 minutes
of ilery speeches, some of which pro
voked much amusement among the
large attendance of members and the
crowded galleries. Then came the
linal vote on the adoption of the rule,
which J 75 members approved and 156
The legislative appropriation hill
constituted the subject for the remain
der of the day. Criticism was made of
the management of the Library of Con
gross and Hard wick, of Georgia, found
himself opposed by members of both
sides uf the chamber in his endeavor
to restrict the White House appropria
tion so iis to eliminate a social secre
tary for the wife of the President.
Dnlzcll's Double-Headed Rule.
Dalzcll, of Pennsylvania, presented
a spoclal rule from the rules commit
tee. It provided that the statehood
bill bo taken from the Speaker's table,
that in so doing the Senate amend
ments bo disagreed to and a confer
ence bo asked of the Senate, and that
the Speaker immediately appoint the
Dalzcll, as soon as the rule had been
road, demanded the previous question,
which, if ordered, carried with it 40 min
utes' debate, to be divided equally be
tween the friends and opponents of the
rule. On a rising vote, 149 voted for the
previous question and 124 against.
On demand of Williams, the minority
leador, a rollcall was ordered.. The rofl
call resulted in ordering the previous
question, the vote being 171 to 140. The
Republicans who voted with the Demo
crats against ordering the previous ques
tions were: Adams, Babeock. Bannon,
Bcde, Beldler, Bonynge. Brown, Caldcr
licad, Cushman, Davidson, Esch, French,
Pulkerson, Glllfette (Cal.), Goelet, Gron

Dalzell was recognized for 20 minutes
jind. began an -explanation .of the -reason
for'.flicBBpeclal rule- There were, he said.
butnOrrec ways t dispose of the bill. One
was tolaenil it lo committee. Another
to ask unanimous consent and send it
to conference, and this would be impos
sible. The third was the method adopted.
It was proper to send the bill to confer
ence and there could be no just criticism
of the orderly course pursued.
Williams Full of Irony.
In opposition, Williams, tho Demo
cratic lloor leader, pointed out that a
vote to adopt the special rule was a
voto agains concurrence in the Sen
ate amendments. Ordinarily under the
rules of the House a motion to con
cur would be in order.
"The usual course of procedure this
morning ought to be reversed, he
continued. "We ought to have had
first tho reading and approval of tho
journal, then the moving of the pre
vious question on this rule, and then
an invocation by the chaplain for tho
morcy of God upon this Republican
"In my opinion they will need it be
fore they get through monkeying with
this proposition," ho added.
He said if it was the purpose to put
up a bluff now and yield to tho Senate
later, the procedure now was child's
play. He refused, he said, to give any
.more advice. He had previously ex
pressed his opinion.
A severe castigatlon of the party
organization was made by Humphrey
(Rep.. Wash.). Fulkerson (Dem., Mo.)
followed along the same lines.
Sibley (Dem., Pa.) acknowledged tho
rocolpt of many letters and telegrams
in favor of tho Senate bill, and want
od to say that telegraph tolls were
being wasted. These messages should
bo sent to the other end of tho Capi
tol. When Babeock was given three
mlnutos there was applause. He pre
dicted that today's action sending tho
bill to conference was the last that
would be heard of it during the pres
ent session. The special rule was sim
ply a method of preventing a vote on
Bcdc, the Humorist, Talks.
Defense of tho method was made by
Grosvcnor, after which a flve-mlnuto
speech by Bcde (Rep.. Minn.) kept tho
liouse in convulsions of laughter. He was
against the rule. If there was any mem
ber against admitting Oklahoma he want
ed him to stand accused.
"If we arc in favor of admitting Okla
homa, why don't you get busy?" was
asked. "You can do It in about eight
minutes. Do it. and not hitch tip the
proposition with some other." (Applause.)
"It reminds me of tho way Noah put
the animals in the ark:
' " 'Ho numbered the animals two by two;
the elephant and the kangaroo!'
.,'Thb hitching of Oklahoma and the
New Mexican proposition was Hko the
two Mormon boys who went Bast to
school. They were of tho same name and
age. The last question askod was If they
" 'Yes, on our father's side'
"Yes, this applied to Arizona and New
Mexico, both from Mexico, but different
in all other respects.
"But you say we are against the Ad
ministration." he continued. "I am not.
I have been with tho Administration in
everything he has done except this bill
and his wifebeating bill. (Laughter.)
"In his message a year ago he gave
fight lines advocating the whippingpost.
This year he gave 13 lines for tho two
Good Work for Longworth.
' "Oh, I like the President because he is
"engaged in a great work, does great
deeds, has high resolves and lofty pur
poses, hut I don't have to stand for little

the House got him to put in his message,
and then ascribe it as his policy.
"I, like kim most because lie permitted
a member of this House to break Into
his private home without sounding an

sought Longworth. who occupied ono of
the front scats and joined in the levity.
"I like him because -when he got ready
to give his daughter away, he gave her
to a real American, In every way worthy,
and not to some degenerate Prince (pro
longed applause). And I like him be
cause when he gave her away he gave
her to the House of action and correction
at this end of the Capitol, and not to
the House of detention at the other end
of the Capitol. (Laughter.)
"As to the statehood matter, it would
be far better statesmanship to fight tho
Senate on some measure on which It had
made a mistake. In this Instance tho
Senate Is right and the House wrong.
Never has the country had so able a Sen
ate as today."
"They talk about the Senate holding
up the entire country. Why, wo have
a .strong man in this House who can
hold up 100,000 square miles moro than
anybody In the Senate," ho declared.
De Armond (Mo.) spoke briefly, and
Dalzell closed for It, urging members
to uphold the President and the House.
The resolution was then adopted
upon a roll call, the vote being 175 to

Williams Final Thrust,
While the Speaker was appointing
Hamilton (Mich.), Brick (Ind.) and
Moon (Tenn.) as conferees. Williams
was Bhouting loudly for recognition.
When recognized, Williams presented a
motion Instructing the conferees to accept
tho Senate amendment omitting Arizona
and Now Mexico from the bill.
Both Payne and Dalzell mado the point
of order that this motion was not now In
order, the rule having been adopted and
the conferees appointed. The Speaker
sustained this polht. after Williams had
argued briefly against It. He then took an
appeal from the decision of the chair.
Dalzell moved to lay the appeal on the
table, which motion was sustained on a
rising vote. 146 to SI.
This ended the statehood procedure. The
special order to consider war claims was
postponed to Friday of next week, and
the legislative appropriation bill was
Librarian Under Fire.
When that portion of tho bill providing
for the Library of Congress was reached,
a somewhat Intense debate was Indulged
in. Hepburn of Iowa took the floor in
criticism of Its management and cost of
maintenance, which amounted to nearly
JS00.003 a year. When the Interest on the
cost of the building was figured, the total
will aggregate J1.300.OX). At this point he
diverted to criticism of the efficiency of
the Librarian. An animated defense was
made by Burton of Ohio. Perkins of New
York and Llttlcucld of Maine.
Hepburn maintained that he was not
opposed to the library, but to the useless
expenses incurred by "this man Putnam,"
over whom no one had supervision.
Hnrdwick Gets No Backers.
When the section of the bill appro
priating for the executive offices and sal
ary of the President was reached. Hard
wick of Georgia Inquired what paragraph
provided for salary of the social secretary
of the wife of the President.
Llttauer replied that he did not know
that any such salary was provided.
Hardwick suited that he wished to make
a point of order against the provision If
he could locate It. Not being able to do
this, he offered an amendment providing
that no part of the appropriation should
be used to pay the salary to a person to
perform tho duties of social secretary to
the wife of the President or any service
d that nature.
Grosvcnor counseled Hardwick to with
draw the amendment. Ho spoke of the
high official station of the wife of the
President, of the modest establishment
