SPEAKER ONE DAY
COMMENDABLE. RECORD OF
MOODY OF OREGON.
Presided Over the House for One Day
Is Accused of Nervousness by
Colleagues Very Dignified Speaker.
Washington, March 3. For one
whole day Representative Malcolm A.
Moody has been speaker of the house
of representatives. Throughout Sun
day, February 22, he presided over the
house, by designation of Speaker Hen
derson, and exhibited all the dignity
and solemnity that the occasion de
manded. The house had assembled
to hear eulogies on the late Repre
sentative Tongue and two other de
parted members. At the stroke of 12
Mr. Moody brought down the gavel
with a thump, and the house was In
order. At his order, the chaplain of
fered prayer, and then for a brief
minute Mr. Moody relinquished the
chair to Mr. Coombs, of California,
while he returned to the floor to of
fer the resolution authorizing the eu
logizing of his late colleague. Imme
diately upon Its adoption, he returned
to the speaker's desk, where he re
mained until the adjournment. Prior
to the assembling of tho house, Mr.
Moody came In for considerable
"joshing" at the hands of his col
leagues. He had never before pre
sided over the house, and was laugh
ingly acctised of nervousness. One of
his colleagues went so far as to
charge the Oregon man with having
burned midnight oil In studying up
methods of procedure and looking In
to precedent, but, of course, this was
all in good humor. It can be truth
fully said that no man ever presided
over the house -with more dignity
than did Mr. Moody, and, whatever
may have been the facts as to study,
he made no breaks. His day as speak
er was one of entire success.

This act does not apply to persons
who have received the benefits of tho

house does not prevent the reference
of the bill to congress. It will become
a law before adjournment.
