Piatt Says That Is the Case in
MINORITY HOLDS THE WHIP HAND
And No Practicable Remedy for This
"State or Thing" Voorhees Agrees with
the Connecticut Statesman, and Then
Give a Short Illustration of the Way
the Thing Works, Retiring in Good Or
der After Some Filibustering.
"Washington-, Sept. 22 The senate at
last has a cloture resolution before it the
one of which notice was given Tuesday by
Piatt of Connecticut, and the substance
of which was printed in these dispatches.
In offering the resolution Piatt made a
speech In which he demonstrated the im
possibility of the majority transacting any
business in the senate except with the
consent of the minority, unless the same
was accomplished by the process of sitting
It out a process which Piatt said was
brutal, aud did not always succeed, as the
majority was at such a disadvantage in
these kind of contests, being forced to be
present with a quorum all the time, while
the minority could keep one or two on
watch while the others rested.
What the Rules Should Do.
The rules of the senate, Piatt said, ought
to facilitate the transaction of business.
That proposition would not be denied.
The rules of the senate as they stood today
made it almost or entirely impossible to
transact business. The senate was fast
losing the respect of the people. It was
fast being considered a body that existed
for the purpose of retarding and obstruct
ing legislation. It was being compared in
the minds of the people to the English
house of lords. And the reason of it was
that under the rules it was impossible or
Dearly impo.ssibk to olitain action when
there was any considerable opposition to a
How Cloture Could He Adopted.
lie knew that it might be said that in
the present condition of aff.Vrs in the sen
ate the resolution could not be adopted.
But he believed t hat it could be adopted
just astuMly as the repeal bill could be
passed, and just ns quickly, lie had not
consulted with senators ou his side of the
chamber to any great extent, and yet he
thought he might safely say. that th re
was a large majority of his side of th
chamber would favor the adoption of the
resolution 1 at this time. If a vote on the
repeal bill could be reached, a vote oq the
cloture could be forced. If the considera
tion of the rule was passed ' and delayed
faclionally, that fuel wouid demonstrate
most clearly that the opposition was ob
structing ami filibustering against the re
peal. No "Limit to Senate Ilebate.
The trouble was that the "senate rules
permitted unlimited debate. It was not
"the courtesy of the senate," as was gen
erally supposed, that was involved. It
was the right, under the rules, of any
member of the senate to speak when he
pleased, as long as he plea-ed, aud as orten
as he pleased on -any pending proposition.
When a measure was up ou which the
senate divided with great interest, which
the opposition believed to be to the detri
ment of the count ry, aud ou which the
feelings of senators were enlisted, there
was no ractit-ul way in which the debate
could be limited.
The 2Ient of the Present Case.
The only way of c ning to a vote other
than the way of physi al exhaustion was
to come to a u agreement as to a time to
take the vote. This plan ws unavailable
in this case, because if Vcorhees were to
offer to agree to take a vote ou Nov. 10 the
opposition would not agree. If they would
it would be satisfactory. It is significant
right here that th e opposition practically
admitted this by saying nothing, neither
at this time nor later in the day. He did
not present his resolution on the author
ity of the minority, but he offered it in
good faith as the only way a vote could
be reached. The Republican members
were, he knew, ready to second Voorhees
in any practicable plan to get a vote on
Lodge Digs Cp Another Right.
Hoar thought that Piatt's resolution put
too much on the vice president, and prac
tically gave one state three senators. He
proposed that when a bill had been de
bated more than a day any senator shall
be in order to demand the close of the de
bate, and if seconded by a majority the de
bate shall be closed. Voorhees thanked
Piatt for his lucid statement of the situa
tion, aud Lodge said there was another
right more sacred than the right to debate,
and that was the right to vote. It was to
be assumed that if, by unwritten law,
there was to le unlimited debate, there
should be no obstruction to a vote. When
it appeared that unlimited debate (a right
conceded by courtesy) was -used for the
purpose of obstruction, .then that system
of courtesy became impossible. When a
miuorty not only did not allow a debate to
come to a close, but would not even name
any date (no matter how distant) at which
it would assent to a close of the debate,
then it was obvious that courtesy had be
come entirely one-sided that unlimited
debate was to be permitted, but that the
right of vote was to be taken away.
BEGAN TO LOOK LIKE & TIGHT,
But Voorhees Seems Only to Have Been
Stewart proposed to show that senate
delays had always been advantageous aud
Teller wanted to speak, but not now. So
the resolutions went over and White of
California took the floor and spoke four
hours and twenty minutes against the re
peal bill, which he said did not fully re
deem the Democratic platform on that
subject and would result in the death of
bimetallism in this couutry. He wanted
to quit after speaking three hours, but
Voorhees declined to help him out. Dur
ing his speech White said it was a tribute
to Sherman's financial ability that today
he not only dominated his own party, but
had many Democratic followers. When
White closed it looked for a time as if
there was going to be a lively contest.
Voorhees said that it was too early to
adjourn it was 5:30 p. m. and wanted
Ueorite of Mississippi to finish bis speech.
tieorge aeciarea oe couta not get attention
"after the able and brilliant effort," eto.
"If we cannot have further debate," said
Voorhees, "the next thing is to vote," add
he moved to lay on the table Peffer'a
amendment to the bill and asked the yeas
and nays. Jones of Arkansas moved to
adjourn and Butler of South Carolina to
go into executive session, but Voorhees in
sisted that his call for the yeas and nays
had the right of way. The chair, however,
tbouirht not. A ooint of no ouotum was
made but on a cail fifty-five senators
answered. Then Wolcott moved to ad
journ and th vote stood yeas, 19; nays. St
The vote was not a test of the sentiment
of the senate except iu a general way, as
showing that the.free silver men are in a
decided minority. Butler's motion to go
into executive sessiou was defeated and
Teller moved to adjourn, while Harris
was very anxious also to go into secret
session. Voorhees, however, was firm up
to this point; he had a motion he desired
a rote on and would agree to nothing but
a vote. Teller said it was unfair and un
precedented and that nothing would be
gained because an amendment meaning
the same thing could be offered if this
were rejected. Voorhees said that noth
ing but the "mightiest question" would
justify the ordeal he had prepared for the
aged senators in the chamber, but threw
out an olive branch in the shape of a ques
tion whether the opposition would now
agree to a time to vote on the bill, the
amendment or anything else.
And no oppositionist said a word of en
couragement, whereupon, after some fur
ther colloquy, Voorhees withdrew his mo
tion and Teller told him that it made no
difference what he (Voorhees) did the op
position would be "right thar.!' Morgan
made some remarks that "riled" Palmer
of Illinois, who said, alluding to a sentence
by Morgan, that no one proposed to
"butcher" him aud that his speech was an
INACCURATE, BUT STILL CORRECT
The Journal of the House as Reed Views
Reed had his daily whack at the Demo
crats over "dilatory" motions in thehouse.
When the journal had been read he called
attention to the fact that the Journal
clerk with excellent judgment, he said
had recorded that the speaker on Wednes
day had ruled out certain motions because
they were "dilatory." This, said Reed,
was not accurate, though it should have
been; and he called the attentien of the
speuktTto the matter. The speaker re
plied that he had not bad an opportunity
to examine the journal. He was of the
impression that it was not correct. Reed
said that he would like to congratulate
the chair upon the fact of the journal be
ing correct, even though an inadvertence,
After the sneaker had examined the
journal he submitted it with certain cor
rections of the word "dilatory" and said
that the chair had discovered as it was
read that it was wrong in four distinct
particulars. The journal had stated that
the c!:air had given certain reasons for
his decisions, and these reasons had been
recorded incorrectly. The house would re
member that in some of these decisions
the cnair had refrained from giving the
reasons on which he based his action. The
journal ought not to put Into the mouth
of the speaker reasons that he had not as
signed for his rulings.
Reed said that to his mind (and he said
it with perfect respect) the only ground
on which the decisious of the speaker
Wednesday could rest was the ground
that the motions made were dilatory.
They were dilatory. If they were not dil
atory the conclusion was that the speaker
liad neglected his duty. The speaker had
ruled out motions for a recess, to lay on
the table, and for a question of considera
tion. If these were dilatory motions the
chair had a perfect right to rule them out.
But he had ruled them out, not aa dila
tory motions, but as motions. He hoped
the speaker would permit the journal to
remain as it was.
The speaker remarked that the gentle
man would not make a proposition that an
inaccurate journal should be approved.
Reed Does it not contain what the
speaker actually thought t
The speaker It is a question as to what
Reed suggested that the journal actually
recorded the reasons that had actuated the
The speaker The trouble is that the
speaker ought to be permitted to give his
own reasons and that the journal clerk
ought not to be permitted to give them
for him. Applause.
House and Senate Summarised.
Washington, Sept. 22. Piatt offered
the cloture resolution in the senate he
gave notice of Tuesday and made a speech
thereon, declaring the senate In the power
of any minority that had determination.
Peffer introduced his bureau-of-loaus bill.
White argued against the repeal bill, say
ing that it did not cover the Democratic
platform promises. Voorhees tried to
force a vote on a motion to lay on tl.e
table Peffer's free silver amendment to
the repeal bill, but gave up the fight after
a little filibustering and appealed to the
minority to agree to a vote at some time,
but they would not.
In the house Reed called attention to the
journal, which said that Crisp has refused
to entertain "dilatory" motions, while
Crisp had xedulously avoided that dread
ful word. Crisp took the matter under
advisement and the journal was not ap
proved until the last thing. The -committee
on rules reported a cloture resolution
providing that the election law repeal bill
shall be taken up Sept. 26 and voted on
Oct. 10. The resolution was adopted with
