RULES OF THE SENATE.
A Proposltioa to Change Them Discussed
Washington, Juue Jti. It is possible
that some proposition looking toward a
change in the rules of the senate may be
proposed after the tariff bill is passed.
There has been a loud demand in certain
quarters for a closure rule during the
fnnuirlnnit inn if f Via ti (V Kill lit,. .nnl I
: , ; . v .
o uciumiu vuum uub ue euiorceo, nuea a
measure of such mnguitude was already
under discussion. Mr. Cockrell of Mis
souri, in discussing the subject of closure,
"It would be impossible to change the
rules while a bill is under consideration,
and especially if there was any desire to
prevent its tiossage by extending debate.
The proposition to phange the rules could
In debated as long as the question itself.
This is recognized by any person who has
ever looked into the matter. I should be
in favor of a projiosition changing the
rules so that the majority could control
passage of revenue and appropriation
bills. Any party that is iutrusted
with power ought to have coutrol
of such bills and ought to be al
lowed by the rules of the senate to en
force a vote after reasonable discussion.
To that extent I would favor a change in
t he rules of the senate. It would not do to
try and change the rules now, but when
there is no great question before the sen
ate, and when all tlie senators can look at
tbe proposition uninfluenced by any other
questiou and unbiased by partisanship,
the matter can be considered in a business
way, and decided."
