FOR POPULAR SENATEI
BY FOUR VOTES PROPOSAL FOR
DIRECT ELECTION KILLED.
Vote Stands .4 to 33 For Resolution,
Smith Toting For and Tillman
Washington, Feb. 28.-The resolu
tion for direct election of United
States senators, which has been a
topic of so great interest at the pres
ent session of congress, today was
defeated by the senate, lacking four
votes of the two-thirds necessary for
its passage. Fifty-four senators stood
for the resolution and 33 against it.
Though this division showed so large
a majority of the senate to favor popu
lar elections, yet the number was not
sufficient t> carry the measure, which
requireo- a two-thirds vote for its suc
Immediately after the reading of
the journal the popular election reso
lution was taken up under unanimous
consent, granted last week.
So long had the resolution been be
fore the senate, and so carefully had
the membership been canvassed by its
supporters and its opponets, that it
was recognized from the moment the
-question was brought up that it would
go down in. defeat. Nevertheless there
was a large attendance on the floor.
Though it had been understood that
debate would be shut off on the meas
ure when called, Senator Bacon, who
determinedly has opposed' the resolu
tion as it was altered under the
Sutherland amendment, placing the
control of the elections in the 'hands
of congress, yet hoped to have an
amendment adopted that might, ren-1
oer the measure acceptable to some
of the Southern senators. The Geor
gia senator's effort was to provide
that the federal supervision of the
elections should apply only in hose
States, wherein the legislatures 'had
failed -;o* designate the elections, and
method of 'holding the elections.
Amendment Ruled Out.
Vice President Sherman ruled the
Bacon amendment out of order and
the roll call was begun.
Though, as indictated, it was prac
tically a for'egone conclusion that the
resolution would fail to .get a two
thirds vote, the roll calil was followed
wiith deepest interest. For a moment
it was thougWt that calculations
would be upset, for when Senator Gal
linger's name was reached his answer
was "aye." Looks of surprise were
exchanged by many senators, for
there is no more in,veterate enemy of
the resolution than the New Hamp
The clerk had received several more
responses before it occurred to Mr.
~Gallinger that something was wrong.
He arose in some haste and had hisi

There were four absen.tees, Sena

Terrell. Had they been present, Mr.
STerrell, it was announced. would have~
voted against the resclntion and Mr.;
SFrazier for it. For Mr. Aldrich no
announcement was made. Later Mr.
Crawford appeared on the floor and
explained that be had overslept and'
hadi then met the additional annoy
ance of a street car delay. His vote,
he said, would have been "aye."
Senator Borah, who has led the ad-'
vocates of popular eleationis, though
disapp3oim!ed at the result, was not.
discouraged. On the contrary he felt
that the vote plainly indicated the
growing popularity of the measure.
The senator said:
"While I would like much to have
had four more votes, yet I am grati
fied with the results. When. it is dem
onstrated that the senate stands with
in four of two-thirds it is certain that
rue real fight is over.
