DEMOCRATS FAIL IN
PLAN 10 GRAB ISSUE
Drys at Olympia Vote Down
Effort to Prevent Change
: in Prohibition Measure.
SURPRISE TACTICS USED
Proposal to Suspend Rules to Adopt
Resolution Loses, 55 to 41 Can
cu 6Id to Have Decided on
Move Taken by Party.
STATE CAPITOU Olympia. "Wash.,
Jan. It. (Special.) Attempting by
urarlsa tactics to sclie the liquor
question as a party issue. House Demo
crats late today Introduced without
warnlmr a oroposal to bind the Wash
ington Legislature to consider at this
session no measures contemplating
amendment or repeal of the prohibi
tion law. Backers of the proposal
were defeated, mustering 41 votes on
a rollcall to suspend the rules for lm
.Hiai. adODtlon of the resolution.
while 55 negative votes were recorded.
The vote, while affording to some
indication of the "wet" and
-drv" llneuo. was not a fair test. Re
publican organization leaders resented
ih. action of tho Democrats in u
tempting to make political capital of
tli. liauor ciuestion and several regu
larly scheduled as "dry" voted against
lane Fimiltd mm Surprise.
The entire question came up like
flash. Representative Reeves, of Wen-
atchee. Democratic floor leader, Intro
duced Joint resolution No. 3. reciting
that since tho voters of the state
adopted state-wide prohibition by de
cisive vote last November, "In obedi
ence to the will of the people this Leg
islature does hereby declare its deter
mination not to consider or enact arty
bill or measure whatsoever dealing
with or relating: to the said liquor traf
tic or submitting or resubmitting in
.n tnrm anvthlntr purporting to
amend, modify or supersede the exist
ing enactment of the people, thereby
permitting this new law to have a full
and fair trial, according to the true
spirit of American institutions."
Speaker Conner ordered the bill re
ferred to the committee on public mor
als. Reeves, arguing that the Legis
lature should clear the decks at once
of the liquor question and get to other
business, moved for suspension of the
rules to place the measure on passage.
Kvery legislator was In his seat, with
the exception of Rotch. of King County,
who Is seriously 111 in Seattle and. has
not yet attended the session.
Proareealve Vote Solid.
Twenty-three Republicans. 11 Demo
crats and 7 Progressives voted for sus
pension of the rules, making a total af
firmative vote of 41, whereas a vote of
Ci or two-thirds of the House member
ship was required.
Fifty-three Republicans and two
Iemocrat voted "no" and the resolution
went to the public morals committee.

GIFT JOB PAr IS INCREASED
Patronage Committee of Lower
House Slakes Salary Changes.
OLYMPIA. Wash., Jan. 14. (Special.)
Increased salaries for practically
every position in the gift of the Legis
lature have been arranged by the pat
ronage committee of the lower house.
The chief clerk will receive 10 a day
as against $7.50 at the last session; the
sergeant-st-arms $7.50, male stenog
raphers 15.50, and women employed in
the same capacity $4.60.
Members of the committee say econ
omy will be effected despite the in
creased rates of salary, pointing out
that fewer pages and Janitors will be
used than formerly. The number of
these employes was increased radically
at the last session of the Legislature,
to afford more patronage to distribute
to members of the House organization.
To enable the Legislature to distribute
the necessary patronage, salaries were
reduced, and the present patronage com
mittee says the increased rates consti
tute only the reinstatement of the
former rate of pay.
CLARKE ROADS WIN OUT
REPRESENTATIVE MARSHALL IS
NAMED ON HOUSE COMMITTEE.
Barkers Plrsae-d at I.lsrop.
Tar from being disheartened at the
result of the vote, the backers of the
prohibition cause were Inclined tonight
to view the matter favorably. Repre
sentative llalsey. of Asotin County, one
of the Republican lenders and himself
A "dry." although voting in opposition
to the resolution, predicted that Judg
ing from today's vote the House prob
ahly would be "dry" when the question
of a special election or submission of
new liquor measures conies lip.
Other prohibition advocates pointed
out that the test vote will enable the
"drys" to center their missionary work
on those who voted against the reso
lution today, after first ascertaining
whether their opposition was based on
disinclination to vote for a Democratic
party plan or affiliation with the
History Is Repeated.
The action attempted by the Demo
crats today is a parallel of action taken
by "wet" forces four years ago. when
tlie Legislature In the first weeks of
Its session adopted a resolution declin
ing to consider any liquor measures.
This action was taken to prevent con
sideration of proposed county unit
amendments to the local option bill.
The resolution offered today would
have no legal binding force, as the
Legislature has no authority to refuse
to consider any question that may be
submitted in proper form.
The Senate today had a discussion
consuming several hours of oratory
when Senator Taylor attempted to pre
vent the Legislature from printing the
report of the Washlniiton members of
the Rural Credit Commission that vis
ited Kurope In 113. declaring the cost
of $1104 In violation of legislative
promises of an economical session.
