The President nnnotinced that the Sen
nto was not ofganlzed. Tho requesi
v.ns put to a voto nnd lost, the Inde
pendent members voting solidly against
Mr. Carter moved to adjourn. Thero
had been no action on the rules on the
previous day, the majority of tho Sen
ntn voting to postpone consideration.
I' no business was to lie done, where
was the use of sitting In the honst,
Tho motion to adjourn was lost.
Mr. Achl asked the permission of the
Senate, to Introduco a resolution look
ing toward the abolition by the Con
gress of tho United States of Section U
of tho Organic Act, which reads as fol
lows: "All legislative proceedings shall bo
conducted In the English language."
Mr. Kalue stated that, although he
was not against such a resolution, he
inuld not see how It could be Intro
duced when there were no rules gov
erning the proceedings of the Senaitf,
He objected particularly to the con
sideration of such n resolution beforo
the rules of the Senate had been adopt
ed, particularly because such resolution
touched such nn Important matter as
tho fundamental law of tho land. Ho
would make no objection at the proper
Mr. Haldwln stated that the Senate
should unquestionably proceed with the
consideration of tho rules of tho Sen
ate. If tho members wero disposed to
consider the rules. It would bo best for
Mr. Achl to withdraw his motion.
Mr. Cniter said that ho would voto
down the Introduction of such a resolu
tion If Mr. Knluo would Introduce a
lcsolutlon calling for the Immediate
consideration of the rules.
Mr. Achl mado quite, a long speech
objecting to tho attitude of the Inde
pendent Senators. He Btated that over
13000 of the public funds had already
been spent by tho Senate and nothing
had been done. When the rules hid
been brought In yesterday, nothing was
done. Ho had been elected by tho peo
plo and he Intended, If possible, to do
their will. Ha wished to Introduco
something that would show tho SenatJ
to bo doing some work. He stated that
ho had asked to be allowed to Intro
duco a bill looking townrd tho con
sideration of tho claims of the poor
peoplo who had suffered by tho China
town fire. This had been oted down.
He had asked to Introduco a resolution
looking toward a much desired cliango
In tho Organic Act and this was ob
jected to. Were tho Independents -ci
well versed In tho English language
that they did not consider the cbanro
necessary? "Tho Independents aro cer
tainly delaying tho business of the
Senate," said Mr. Achl.

At this point, Mr. Knluo arose and
asked that tho speaker direct his ro
marks to himself nnd not to the lnda-
pendent members as a whole, for ho
was tho one who had objected to the
Introduction of tho resolution.
Mr. Achl arose to a point of order
srflng that, when Mr. Knlue Just rose
to a point of order ho had not stated his
point but had gono on talking. It
wished a, ruling of the chair on th!
Just nt this time, Mr. Achl. noticing
a conferenco between tho President of
the Senate and Clerk Ca)p1css, said In
loud tones: "Mr. President, I object to
the Interference of the secretary. Ha
Is a servant of the House nnd should
attend to his duties. If he does not it
tend to his duties, hi should be klckel
out of tho House."
The President called Mr. Achl to or
der and told him to use more decent
lnnguago In the future when nddrcsslng
tho Senate. There were four or five
Senators on their feet at once. The
flutter of excitement went to the whole
House and ended up on the pencil
points of the rapidly scribbling repor
ters at tho press table. They had been
looking for n "good storj" nnd they got
It when least expected.
Mr. Carter naked what language used
by Mr. Achl had been objected to by
the President and what had caused him
to be called to order.
Tho President stated that Mr. Achl
had been called to order on account of
the uso of the words "ho should bo
kicked out of the House,"
Mr. White stated that the Itcpubll
rnns wero the ones who wero delnjlnj
the work of the Senate.
Mr. Drown sought to pour oil on tho
troubled waters by stating that tho
only question before the Senate was the
motion of Mr. Achl to be allowed to
Introduce a resolution, .iiiythlng out
side of this, such as referenco to party
attitude, was out of order.
Mr. Acht's motion was lost.
Mr. Cecil Drown moved that the con
sideration of the rules as presented by
tho committee, be made the speclil
business of tho day. This was carried
by a ote of 11 to 3. The rules weio
then rend section by section.
Tho remainder of the forenoon was
taken up with the consideration of the
rules. There wero several lltle amend
ments mndo but these did not change
In any very great degree, tho rules as
passed on by tho Senate committee.
Tho members got as far as considera
tion of Utile 10 when tho 12 o'clock
whlstlo blew and a motion to take a
recess until 1:30 p. m. was carried.
