HOUSE VOTES TO VIOLATE PLEDGE
ground that the action was too far
reaching Importance to be decided on
sucn a snort shift.
Sided With Johnson.
Speaker Champ Clark, however, sup
posedly because of his warm personal
friendship for Chairman Johnson, let It
become known through his presence up
on the floor and his anxiety to be
counted on one of the preliminary votes.
that he sided with Johnson. Knowing
this, several members at least were con
strained to the belief that Johnson's
point of view was that of the "organl-
xatlon" of the party, at least that Is the
Impression that one member of the party
was at particular pains to convey In
tolicltlns votes to sustain the chair.
The actual dollars and cents effect of
esterdays action so far as this session
Is concerned will be nlL The Senate,
when the District bill reaches that body,
will reinsert the half and half feature
of the Item and the House conferees
nhen the measure goes to conference,
nlll not light to have the action of yes
terday upheld in the conference report.
While there- will undoubtedly be a spir
ited light In the House over the con
ference report, because of this and other
features In which the House conferees
will jleld to the Senate bill, there Is
little danger that the House will refuse
to adopt the conference report.
The Moral Effect.
The moral effect of jesterdaj's action
however, hardly can be overestimated,
when taken In conjunction with the Im
pending attempt to wipe out the present
form of gocrnment In the District and
to substitute therefor what some aro
pleased to term "local self-government."
I)y sustaining the decision of the chair
csterdnj the House clearly Indicated
that It Is read and anxious to ote upon
any measure which bears the outward
stmblence of reason looking to a change

ly that the United States should assume

I nepresentatlve Saunders n member of

Opening his argument, Mr. Saunders
"I challenge in toto the proposition of
the gentleman that there Is no assump
tion on the part of the government to
na one-lialf of the principal without
an contract of reimbursement, ' said Mr
Saunders. "On the contrarv . I speclflcallj
assert that this government deliberately
assumed the burden of one-half of this
Indebtedness, principal, and interest.
Mr. Johnson. In the course of his re

zation from Congress, had been fraudu
lently contracted. In that the Board of
Public Works had not resorted to com
petitive bidding In awarding tho cor
tracts for tho Improvements.
At the time these charges were made
It was found that the Board of Public
Works had awarded contracts at prices
which Indicated a potential raving of
many thousands of dollars under tho
cost set forth In competitive bids.
"We are not concerned now with the
character of that Indebtedness," said Mr.
Saunders. "It raa) have been fraudulent
"The chair has already adverted to a
principle to which I wish to call atten
tion In this connection," lie continued,
"and that Is. when legislation Is enacted.
and Is ot an ambiguous character, tho
action of the body dealing with that legis
lation which statrps It with a specific
meaning is an Interpretation of It which
the chair should properly have In mind
when he comes to Interpret It as an In
Intended Uw Should Carry.
"Sow at the time this matter came up
there had been three acts in connection
with it. the act ot 1S74, the act of 1S78,
and the act of 1573, and this admission
for the asumptlon In terms of ope-half
of the sinking fund ot the principal oc
curred In the sundry civil bill of 1S,
and It was debated. If there had been
no contemporaneous debate on this. If,
on appropriating from that time to the
present, there had never been any refer
ence to the language of that act. the
terms or It mlgh be considered In some
respect Inapt and sufficient to bear out
tho contention of the gentleman from
Kentucky. But that has been stamped
with tnat meaning, and how can he
now at this late date, when we have
been aproprlatlng In conformity with that
meaning ever since, get away from tho
facts" that the men or the body that
enacted the law Intended the law should
Mr. Saunders referred to a- prior ruling
of Chairman Roddenbery on a point of
order made against the item for the
Police Department, the point being based
largely on the ambiguity of the terms ot
the act creating tho Police Department-
In that case Mr. Itoddcnbery ruled that
a subsequent act in an appropriation bill,
pazsad. by tile basis House, should ca
tnlttee of the appropriation commit
tw which frames up the District ap
propriation hills have been, or wiU be.
It the present construction of the law
continues Illegally paid out of the Treas
ury to meet one-half of the Interest and
sinking fund payments on the funded
debt of the District.
In view of Oils belief and the action
of the House, the next move Mr, John
son may be expected to make will be
with a view to requiring that these
moneys bo covered back Into the Treasu
ry by the District; in other words, that
from the District revenues from now on
amounts aggregating this sum shall bo
paid back to the United States govern
ment. In the few hours given over to the de
bate, no time was given those who op
posed the ruling to review the conditions
which led up to the enactment of the
organic act and the assumption by the
United States of Its one-half share of the
Indebtedness which the Board of Public
Works had Incurred, partially with the
authorization of Congress, which created
It. and partially without authorization.
One-Half for United States.
Representative Saunders, however, did
show clearly through citations from the
record of debate v. hen this part of the
act was under consideration that tho
framers of the act clearly intended the
United btales to bear one-half of the
burden and that those who opposed this
section of the act did so becauso they so
understood the meaning and did not be
lieve the United States should bear one
half of the burden of the debt. Citations
from Mr. Saunders remarks In another
column clearly establish this and refute
the contention of Beprcscntatlv e Johnson
and Chairman Iloddenbery that tho
framen of tho act Intended that the
United fctatcs should stand only as
guarantor, and should bear no actual or
ultimate part of the burden.
This proof naturally was Ignored bv
Chairman Roddenbery in framing his
ruling. Inasmuch as the decision was
written before these citations were of
fered In debate

"It Is a sound principl" of Interpreta

must be construed with r-pect to Its

the legislators who originally passcl

Mr. Johnson, in attacking the Inter
pretation placed upon it by tho commit
tee and by the bill, referred to an amend
ment offered In substitution for the same
Item In an appropriation bill in 1S96. Mr.
Saunders pointed out that under the
rules of the House the amendment would
not have been in order except that It

to add to the Item, 'to- be paid out

man Roddenbery said:
"Iri the opinion of the chair tho ques

raised by tho point of order Is more of
a legal question than a parliamentary on
In fact. It Is purely a legal question.
Onco the legal elements are properly as

of the District), rendered on bJu"-'

Item was chargeable half-and-half to

"The Chair has also vrttlf eonal ) care

Garrett- holding that the Government
the United States was authorized to ap

that the amount was credited accord
