London, May 9. A bill introduced
by Lord Lansdowne, leader of the op
position of the house of lords, yester
day, for the reform of the upper
house, passed its first reading. It pro
poses 'revolutionary changes in the
house of lords.
The unionists, he said, desired to
demonstrate to the country that they
could provide an efficient second cham
ber which could be trusted to uso its
powers fairly, serve the democracy
faithfully and at the 3ani time be
strong enough to resist the gusts of
passion and prejudice with which all
democracies were familiar.
They proposed a house to consist of
350 lords, none of whom should hold
his seat for more than twelve years,
but they would be eligible for re
election. The peers themselves would
elect 100 members of the peerage pos
sessing the statutory qualifications.
PEOPLE TO ELECT MEM HERS.
A second contingent would consist
of 120 members to be elected from out
side the house of lords by an electoral
college composed of members of the
lower house representing constituen
cies comprised in the electoral dis
tricts i.ito which the country wcild be
divided by specially appointed com
missioners The third section of the house, num
bering 100, would be appointed by the
crown on the recommendation of the

PASSES TWO TO ONE.
Washington, May 9. The house
by a vote of 236 to 109 last night
passed the democratic farmers' free
list bill. The vote came after a des
perate filibuster on the part of the
republicans. It began when the bill
was placed on passage early in the
afternoon and did not cease until
100 amendments offered by the re
publicans bad been crushed by
Speaker Clark'B "steam roller." Ev
ery amendment offered was declared
out of order.
On the final roll call 24 republi
can members voted with the demo
crats. The minority battle was led by
Representative Mann of Chicago,
who was aided by former Speaker
Cannon and Representative Hill of

When the measure was called up
for amendment and passage, shortly
after the house met for the day, Mr.
Mann began the Introduction of a
series of amendments, designed to
restrict the privilege of the free list
to those countries that in turn would
admit similar products from Amer
ica without duties. One by one the
amendments were ruled out of or
