THE DAY IN WASHINGTON
I From The- Traba < B .:? ? 1
Washington February I
"Pasiing the Buck."
There wrie further indications to-day
that the House lea?)?!? do not know what
to do with the Sei.at" resolution limiting
the President to one term of ?ix yea'
Throughout the day Democrats indulged
in the Ueosattsafsotory pre**ttce of "paaaing
the buck." a'.d tin ordinarily loQUaetOUl
member was a.? silent as a clam. Chalr
rnaa Clsytsa of th? Mouse Committe sal
Judiciary proniiii'd to bring matters to
a head by annoura ing to-night that his
committee would take up the Senat" reso?
lution on ThUT ?lay and would foimally?
d??maad of th? Hulea ,'ominitt. a special ?
rule for its consideration. Mi ?'layt...;'
pointedly recalls that liis eommlttea 1*0*
ported a reaoiutiori last June, wht
aubataatlally the same as the Works i*e**?o*
lution, ata] that h. has been attempting
ever since to get the Rule- Committee to
make It privileged.
The members of the Rules committee
are a pestered lot They haven't hen id
from Trenton or Miami, they are be?
sieged for special rules for various otlur
bills, and each member of the committee
Is morally certain that the six-year term
will receive the approval of the House if
the issue Is present?*-d during the present
session. Such prompt action "trabet)
would mean ratification of the r.m?tit :?
tlonal amendment by the ?dates in tun*?
to extend the term of Woodrow Wilson
for two year?.
"It seems we fu<? the g\'tts of the'
Mouse." lamented a Democratic member
Chairman Henry of the Rule! Commit?
tee. in tiu- words of ra*Reit?**esentath*c
"Rill" Sulzer. acknowledged that the
question arsa "cue ,.; : rest moment, of
great moment." but be ahso,uteiy had 00
idea srfaen his ooir.niitUi. world meet or
what it would de. t?houlel it onset.
Meanwhile RassTssentatlva Clayton, au?
thor of the HOUtM llx-) ear-term resolu?
tion. Is chuckling. Hia resolution ha?
been burled on the ciVndar for month?,
and Mr. Henry, a loyal Wilaoolte, haa j
resisted all oveiuires for a iponlal rule.
The action of the Bonete ?. rw puts the
Issue squarely up t" th*- Rules Committee
of the lower body, for the Hosae is ready
to act. On the other hand, if the Rubs
Committee hearkora l?? the plea of th?.?
Judiciary Commit'?--.*, numeruu?? other
members win descend upon it, demand?
ing special rules f*?r the onfO*resd tonald
eration, for instan e, o? the militia
bill, the war claims bill and sntl-ll
l'Kis'.ation. The truth Is that t?.? '?'
