CONGRESS NEEI)S REFORM
OTI1 bnuu'htVs of congress otTor iiiircostuipf lessons in
Domtlni' irovonniuMifc Tho honso is ruhul by a sorrel
pnuous. It works lilco nmolunoi'.v. All that is nooossai'v
is to sivnro the consent of tho emirus leader, Underwood,
and adopted jiibasurAs slide throutrh like a streak. Debate
is wasted find rarely indulged in, exeept for the benefit of
home constituents.' Lt was the ease with a ropuhlieau ma
jority; it is the ease with the democratic majority.
The senate goes to tho other extreme. If not domin
ated by the minority, ikis certainly bulldozed by it. Any
measure can be talked to death by a few wind-bags, pro
vided they have endurance enough. A few years asro pro
gressives' like Ln Follotte wore filibustering to kill reac
tionary measures. Now the reactionaries are filibustering
to kill progressive legislation.
The child-labor bill was recently passed by the house.
It was not a party measure, though favored by party lead
el's. Tt was introduced and passed the same day. Only
three speeches were made upon it, one by Congressman
Palmer, of five minutes, favoring it. One by Representa
tive Byrnes of South Carolina of three minutes, opposing
it, and a third by "Representative Lenroot of four minutes.
The vest of the day" Avas consumed in dilatory parliament
ary tactics. The caucus had decided. Debate was unnec
essary. The forty-tjiroo votes against it came mostly from
the south, where the dollar is worth more than the child.
The ship purchase bill was seriously discussed only in
house caucus. "When the measure came up for a vote, it
was steam-rollered through. Horseplay hud dilatory tac
tics replaced discussion by tho opposition. Speaker Clark
found it. necessary to call to order, remarking: "Gentle
men will remember this is neither a beer garden nor a
In the senate prolonged filibustering killed the meas
ure, when the filibustered were joined by reactionary
democrats, who deserted the president, just as reaction
ary democrats had deserted Cleveland in his tariff fight.
But with the deserters the minority could have blocked
passage at this session by continuing to talk.
The house is no longer, nor has it been for decades, si
deliberative body. Its membership is too bulky tor delib
eration. The senate has too much deliberation, when the
will of the majoritv can be nullified. Both need reform.
There is no more need of two houses in congress than
there is need of two houses in the state legislature. A sin
gle chamber, and that a small one, is sufficient. There is
too much legislation, too many
