Opponents Q.nlt nt Lut.
The decision not to block the rou

by Senators Eddy. Garland, Pierce and
others who had banded together to de
lay its consideration in every possible

Both times It was done by refusing
to permit suspension of the rules to
permit the bill to advance to second
and third reading.
A two-thirds vote of the entire mem
bership of the Senate, or 20 votes, is
necessary to suspend the rules. They
had 14 votes on the first test, which
would also have been enough to pre
vent Its passage.
President Moser proposed the alter
native that an amendment be added
submitting the measure to the people.
This was not accepted, however, un
til Senators Eddy, Garland, et al.
reached their agreement tonight.
Committee Gets Till Monday.
Senator Garland broke the news dra
matically to the Senate. 1
"It is my great pleasure," he began,
"to make a motion that the rules be
euspended to permit House bill 550,
the road bond measure, to be passed to
"Second the motion," said Senat6r
Only two Senators voted against It,

The bill was read a second time and
referred to the committee on roads ana
"The committee will not have to re
port it out until Monday," commented
This amicable adjustment cleared up
fcn annoying situation all around.
For a ttme it had seemed probable
that to get the road measure consid
ered, the Senate would have had to ad
journ until Monday, give the bill a sec
ond reading, and then adjourn to Tues
day, when it would have come up under
the rules for third reading and passage.

The House, of course, would have had
to adjourn over with the Senate.
As it is, both houses adjourn tonight
tintll Monday. Not only does this give
plenty of time for consideration of the
road measure, which, as it is to be
amended, must also pass the House
again; but it will do away in a large
part with the feverish and pell-mell
rush usually incident to the final night
of the session.

The House, on the other hand, was
well up " in its work and could more
easily have finished its own bills to
For several hours this afternoon and
tonight the situation on the road bond
bill was most interesting and unusual.
It became plain early in the after
noon, when the bill first came over
from the House and was read the first
time by title, that the Senators opposed
liad carefully planned the Btrategy of
a campaign of parliamentary tactics by
which they hoped to defeat the bill
. This strategy, briefly summarized.
"was to keep it from passing the Senate
by. the very simple method of prevent
lng it from coming to a vote.
To accomplish this, the anti-road
bond Senators banded together and
voted down every attempt to suspend
the rules and place the bill on the sec
ond reading necessary to put It on the
calendar for third reading and passage.
Two 'test votes in the afternoon
demonstrated that these Senators held
the situation so well in hand.
Making it easier for them was the
fact that, although to carry a bill re
quires only 16 affirmative votes, a
mere majority of the Senate, suspen
sion of the rules requires the affirma
tive votes of two-thirds of the fu'l
membership of the Senate, or 20 votea.
Rales Require Three Days.
Under the rules by which both Sen
ate and House operate, which in turn
are modeled after the rules In use by
virtually all legislative bodies, bills
must come up for reading three times
before they may be placed on final
passage in either house.
The rules provide that after a bill
has been read the first time, one day
shall elapse before it is read the sec
ond time. And after being read the
eecond time, that another day shall
elapse before it is read the third time
and placed on final passage.
Early in the session this rule is ad
hered to strictly, but in the closing
days when it would be entirely imprac.
ticable to wait the necessary time be
tween the readings, it is the practice
after the first reading to suspend the
rules and put bills on second reading
and third reading immediately.
In an entire session there will usually
be no objection thus to suspending the
rules, regardless of whether the Sena
tors voting to suspend them favor the
bill for which they are suspended. It
Is an act of courtesy almost never re
The present situation is thus a very
unusual one and one of which only
resourceful strategist would have
The plans of the anti-road bond Sen
ators first became apparent when, after
tne bond mil nad oeen read the first
time, President Moser, leaving the
chair, moved that the rules be sue- i
pended and the bill passed to second
reading ana made a special order of
business for 8 o'clock tonight.
Senator Eddy promptly objected. He
declared that In passing the Bean-
Barrett emergency bond bill, authoriz

the state to match the f 1,800,000 Shack. -

lature had gone as far as it should go
Moser Wants Bill Submitted.
T am not in favor of the bill without
an amendment providing that it shall
not go into effect until approved by the
people after being submitted to them at
the next election, replied President
But to make this amendment, or
to discuss the bill at all. we must
permit it to come before us for third
reading. I desire that it be a special
order of business for 8 o'clock tonight,
and I therefore urge and trust" that
the rules will be suspended."
And I trust, retorted Senator Eddy.
"that they will not be suspended. . I
demand a call of the Senate."
When the sergeant-at-arma had
rounded up every Senator, the rollcall
showed that tho rules had failed of
Fifteen Senators had voted to. sus
pend them and put the bill on second
reading and only 14 had voted not to
suspend them. But 20 votes were re
quired to suspend the rules, and the
fight was temporarily lost.
15 Vote to Suspend.
Those Senators voting to suspend the
rules were: Baldwin. Barrett, Farrell,
Handley, Hurley, Houston, Leinen
weber, Lewis, Olson. Orton, Shanks.
Smith of Josephine, Vinton, Wood and
President Moser 15.
Those Senators ' voting against sus
pension of the rules were: Senators
Bishop, Cusick, Dimick, Eddy. Garland.
Gill, Hawley. La Follett, Pierce, Smith of
Coos, bteiwer, Strayer, Von Der Hellen,
That ended the fight temporarily.
But an hour later it came up again.
This time, several other House bills
Just passed by the House and Including
a number of important appropriation
bills had Just been read the first time.
"I move," said Senator Wood, chair
man of the joint ways and means com
mittee, "that the rules be suspended
and all the House bills on the desk be
read the second time by title only."
Senator Eddy was again Instantly on
"I move," he cried, "to amend that by
making the motion apply to all ap
propriation bills on the table."
Rnlea Suspended; Read Bill Left Out.
Several Senators sought to be heard,
and Senator Garland was recognized
with still another motion, to the ef
fect that all bills on the table be read
the second time under suspension of
the rules except House bill 550, the road
Senator Wood took up the. battle gage
"ThV appropriation bills are not the
only Important bills here." he said,
"and if we are going to hold out some,
we can hold out appropriations, too.
"I am always willing that the ma
jority of the Senate ehall rule. If 16
Senators are against this road bill, then
well and good.
"But, fellow Senators, be fair about
this. If you suspend the rules for one,
suspend them for all, and don't single
out only one bill. It has alwaysbeen
customary in the closing days of the
session to suspend the rules to put bills
on third reading." 1
The motion to amend carried by 18
votes on a rising vote. When the rules
were suspended, therefore. House bill
550 was still left on the table.
Monday Session Favored.
It was then that the Senators for
the bill turned to parliamentary tac
tics to combat the parliamentary tac
lcs of their opponents.
By adjourning over until Monday the
bill would automatically come up for
The proposal to hold over until Men
day was suggested to the Senate by
Senator Orton when the Senate ad
journed for dinner. It met favorable
response even from members who voted
against the suspension 'of the rules, be
cause of the congested calendar.
"This is the actual 41st day of the
session, but only the 32d working day,"
said Senator Orton. "Personally, I
don't see any sense to this business of
killing ourselves and working all night
to try to adjourn Just because we have
been in session 40 days."
. "I. heartily concur,", commented Sen
ator Wilbur, who had voted against
suspending the rules. "I hope it pre
vails. We can come back here Monday
refreshed and ready for work. There
is no earthly reason that I know for
trying to dash through the mass of
bills before us tonight."

Start Home at Once to
REGULARS WILL PATROL
General Funston Still to Have 5 0,
000 Men Along Line, Includ
ing All Who Were in Mex
ico With Pershing.
WASHINGTON, Teh. 17. Coincident
with the reopening of the American em
bassy in Mexico, the big army of Na
tional Guardsmen that was concen
trated on the border on account of ban
dit activities will be In process of dis
solution. Orders were issued by the
War Department today directing Gen
eral Funston to begin the Immediate
demobilization of all the guard units
remaining in border camps, and it is
expected that the last troop train will
be on its way north by March 7.
General Funston still will have on
the border nearly 50,000 troops, all of
the regular Army, disposed along the
line from Brownsville to Yuma, Ariz.,
on plans worked out by the General
Staff. The command includes all of the
troops who were in Mexico under Gen
eral Pershing. General Pershing will
remain at El Paso, where he is com
manding a division. Including the
largest cavalry unit on the line.
Secretary Baker emphasized that the
withdrawal of the state troops is in
no way connected with the crisis with
Germany, but carries out a policy deter
mined long ago by the Administration.
The order was issued after General
Funston had reported that with the
new disposition of rebels he felt that
he had enough men to meet any exigen
cies that might arise.
The war Department Issued this
"Orders have been sent to General
Funston to send all National Guard or
ganizations north for muster out, in
cluding border states. All details of
me movement. Including dates of de
parture, are left to General Funston."
Department officials expect all the
guardsmen to be back in their state
inoDuization camps or at their armories
Inside of three weeks.

QUIT MEAT WHEN
Take a Glass of Salts if Your
Back Hurts or Bladder
No man or woman who eats meat
regularly can make a mistake by flush
ing the kidneys occasionally, says a
well-known authority. Meat forms urlo
acid, which excites the kidneys, they
become overworked from the strain,
gst sluggish and fail to filter the waste
and poisons from the blood, then we
get sick. Nearly all rheumatism, head
aches, liver trouble, nervousness, diz
ziness, sleeplessness and urinary disor
ders come from sluggish kidneys.
The moment you feel a dull ache In
the kidneys or your back hurts or If
the urina Is cloudy, offensive, full of
sediment. Irregular passage or at
tended by a sensation of scalding, stop
eating meat And get ab-ut four ounces
of Jad Salts from any pharmacy: take a
tablespoonful In a glass ot water be
fore breakfast and In a few days your
kidneys will act fine. This famous salts
Is made from the acid of grapes and
lemon Juice, combined with llthla, and
has been used for generations to flush
and stimulate the kidneys, also to neu
tralize the acids In urine so it no longer
causes Irritation, thus ending bladder
Jad Salts Is Inexpensive and cannot
injure: makes a delightful effervescent
lithia-water drink, which everyone
