Washington, . an. 10.-Victor Berg
'r, Milwaukee socialist, reelected from
the Fifth Wisconsin congressional dis
trict after he had been refused mem
bership in the house "because he gave
aid and comrfort to the enemy," was
(enlied -his seat gaiin today by a vote
of 228 to 6.
The house actec1d i: a little more than
an hour after lerger had presenited
himself to be sworn in. Chairman
i[alling',er of the elections committee,
which helu ller'ger iieligible the first
time, 'presentIed a resolution barring
lerger and reviewed the reasons why
BIerger was excluded at the special
session. ltepresetnatives Mann, Re
publican, of Illin ois, Voigt, ltepubli
can, of Wisconsin and Sherwood, Den
ocrat, of Ohio, spoke iii siipport of
Berger's right to a seat.
"This Is a. replresentative form of
.government," Mr. Mann said, "and this
we inust maintatii Inviolate if the peo.
plo desire it. Berger was electe(d by
ie !pcopie o Wisconsiin. They have a
right to be rep resented."

Rodenskad's right to the seat denied
er-gor has been mmd' befor ' hai r
man 1)al linger. lIo(ensta(d, a Repub
lican, was defealed by 3erger by a
majority of 4.804; votes ill the special
election. The committee previously
held Joseph P. Carney, Berger's op
ponent in tlie' first election, to be inl
eligible. Chairman I)allinger said to
day that at the time of his flrst (-fee
tion .Berger was only under indict
ruent under the espionage act. but
that he had been convicted before the
second election. This, he added, would
strengthen 1Dodenstod's case.
Those voting to seat Berger 'were:
Mann, 1farreld, Republican, of Okla
lonia; Griffin, IDemocrat, of New
York; Sherwood, )emocrat. of Ohio,
andt(] Slsson, Diemocrat, of alississiPpi,

Berger dellared in a statement at
Ier the vate that the house action was
"one of the worst. attacks on the rep
resentatlve fori of government ever
witilossed In this country."'
"lt is real!y a denial of the righ of
the people to elect the citizeni ofj, tlheir
choice," he said.
Speaking to his resolution, Chairman
Dallin ',er said Hlernetr was excliuded
the flrst t ime "nrot heause of his so
called radical views, not hecause he Is
a &>ialist, but[ bieens he is ineligibe

:o1Iue wiho coJteid that ir the people

iieat. but a man excluded as Berger
has been can never be eligible to mem
be rsh ip."
flop resentattive Voigt, w ho was the
only member to voite to seat Berger
the 'first time, spoke in favor of seat
ing him today.
"f am more firmly conlvinced~ than
ever," he saId, "that foerger Is entitled

was advocated by W. J. Bryan today as t
a means of making a compromise on
the peace treaty. Mr. Dryan was ad
dressing the Iroquois club.
"If no compromise can be reached,"
he said, "we must acquiesce for the t
present -with the Republican major
lity." He iroposcd that in that case
enough Democratic votes be with-,,
drawn to permit the Republicans a
constitutional two-thirds vote by
which the treaty and the league of na
tions Covenant would be ratified 'with
reservations and allow "the people to
pass judgment" at the polls.
Mr. Bryan very enphaticalyl stated I
that there hams been io "split" in the
iemocratie party and that such a
conclusion should not be drawn from
the addresses of himself an( President
Wilson at the Jackson day banquet.
."T. he president's letter read at
Washington," continued 'Mr. Bryson,
"contains words open to construction
that indicate to ie that compromise is
possible. The president did well at
Paris. lie did more than we could
expect any man to do."
.%Iir. IBryan said his plan of comipro
mise or the alternative of allowing
the Republican majority to record its
will was "Just the simple old Amenri
can plan of majority rule." With rati
fleation accomplished, hie said, "then
-we will have peace and the league of
