NO. 2622 m RESOLUTION AIMS OFMMMOTT Offered by Representative MacDonald, Boll Moose, It Causes Uproar in House. LIVELY DEBATE ENSUES Entire Matter, Including Repcrt on Molhall Charges, Finally Is Re ferred to Judiciary Committee. The right of Representative James r. McDermott. of the Fourth Illinois dis trict, whose name was mentioned in a lather unenviable manner In the Mulha.l charges, to hold his seat In Congress, Is challenged In a resolution presented in the House yesterday by Representative William J. MacDonald, Bull Moose mem ber from Michigan. Mr. MacDonald of fered another resolution proposing to ad Judge in contempt of the House certain officers of the National Association of Manufacturers, whose activities before committees of Congress were dsclosed In the report filed by the special committee created by the House to probe charges made by CoL Martin M. Mulhall. The MacDonald resolutions were intro duced In the House Immediately upon the conclusion of the reading of the report on the Mulhall charges made by the special committee, of which Representa tive Garrett, of Tennessee, Democrat, is chairman. The House was thrown into an uproar, as the resolution affecting Mr. McDermott Is lor all practical purposes, an Impeachment of his Integrity, and alleges in effect, that he has been guilty of conduct that warrants his expulsion from Congress. Lenders Off Gnnril. Although warned that Mr. MacDonald. who is the Progressive Representative on the committee, intended to offer his res olutions the leaders were off their guard, and for a time It looked as if the Hous6 v-ould be rushed Into Impeachment pro ceedings. However, on motion of -Chairman Gar rett, the MacDonald resolutlors, together with the committee's report on the Mul hall charges, finally were referred to the Committee on the Judiciary, which will advise the House whether McDormott should be expelled, censured, or exonerat ed. The committee likewise will adlse the House as to what action should be taken on the MacDonald resolution which characterizes as "vicious" and "im proper" certain lobbying activities of officers of the National Association of Manufacturers. The text of the resolu tion aimed at McDermott is as follows: "Resolved. That this House proceed forthwith to determine whether, under this report of your select committee on lobby Investigations. Representative" James Thomas McDermott. of the Fourth Congressional district of the State of Illinois, has not been shown guilty of disgraceful and dishonorable misconduct and venality, rendering him unworthy of a seat In this House and justly liable to expulsion from the House." V.Il.ir.1 nt X. A. 31. OHtrluU. The second resolution offered by Mr. McDonald follows: "Resolved. That the -louse proceed forthwith to determine whether, under the report of your select committee on lobby investigations, it has not been shown that J. Philip Bird. John Klrby. Jr., James A. Emery. Martin M. Mulhall. and other officers and agents of the Na tional Association of Manufacturers have been engaged in svstematlc continuous practices against the good ordr and dignity of the House, and in improper and vicious lobbying activities, rendering them liable to punishment by this House for contempt." McDermott was among those present when Representative McDonald arose to touch off the fireworks yesterday. His face reddened as he followed the denun ciation of McDonald, who declared that the charges made against the Illinois member were serious enough to warrant further investigation, and that, if true, Mr. McDermott should bo severely pun ished. Chairman Garrett madr a point of order against the resolution, and there at once ensued a lively debate, in which Demo crats. Republicans, and Bull Moose took part. It was apparently the purpose of the Bull Moose members to punish Mc Dermott out of hand, and they made every effort to persuade the House to pass the McDonald resolutions. The dis cussion waxed fast and furious for nearly an hour, and the upshot of it was the reference cf the entire record. Including the- McDonaJd resolution, to the Judiciary Committee. Trr tn Get Ilrrorit Vote. Mr. McDonald, aided by Representative Murdock. the Progressive leader, made an effort to get a record vote on the mo tion to refer the question to the Judiciary Committee. Failing In this, he made the point of no quorum. Thereupon Repre sentative Sherwood, the Democratic leader, moved to adjourn, which was done. Bull Mooso leaders charge that Speaker Clark erred when he held that the House voted to refer tho McDonald resolution to a committee. They insist that Mr. Mc Donald's point of no quorum vitiated tho viva voce vote by which the Garrett mo tion to refer was carried under tho ruling of the Speaker. More will be heard on this point when tho House meets today. Speaker Clark held that McDonald's point of no quorum came too late In the proceedings to affect the verbal vote that carried the Garrett motion to refer. , Second llont for "Bad Man."

LONG RECESS POSSIBLE Democratic Leaders Discussing Ad- inability of Adjourning from De cember 20 to January 19. Such headway Is being made In con nection with the currency bill In the Senate that Senator O'Gorman last night predicted that voting on amendments would begin today, and the bill pos sibly put upon Its final passage by Sat urday night. Majority Leader Kern stated that beyond any doubt whatever the bill would be in conference by one week from today. It Is not the purpose of the leaders. In any event, to adjourn before December 31. That would give three days for con sideration of the currency bill in con ference. "The difference between the Iwo houses will be reconciled at -tre White House, bo no trouble Is anticipated" In getting to a conference report ana having the bill signed by the President by the date upon which It is agreed that holiday recess will be taken. , Pleased over the way members of both houses of Congress have stood by their guns throughout the long siege the Presi dent has told Senators he would not quib ble over the length of the holiday recess Congress might take. Democratic Sen ate leaders yesterday were discussing the advisability of an adjournment De cember 30 until January 19. This Idea Is approved by many, and a resolution for a four, instead of a two weeks re cess, may be presented. Hitchcock. Bill Favored. Serators Nelson, of Minnesota, and Bristow, of Kansas, both members of the Banking and Currency Committee, held the floor practically all of vesterday. ad vancing arguments favoring the Hitch cock and against the Owen bills. Senator Nelson contended vigorously that there should be no provision permitting the re serve banks to pay Interest on deposits. In the Owen bill the payment ot Interest Is optional: In the Republican measure it Is prohibted. The Minnesota Senator said it should Le absolutely prohibited because the great evil of the present system was this payment of Interest on deposits which concentrated the funds where they could not be used Tor the general welfare. Unless It was prohibited. Senator Nelson expressed the belief that It would be destructive of tho whole system. Both these Senators condemned the Democrats for professing to legislate for the whole people, for denouncing the proposed cen tral bank as inimical to the people's in terest and then indorsing a bill that gave the bankers full and complete control of the reserve banks, through which they would continue as In the past, to control and dominate the money and bank cred its of the country. Rrlstovr Seen Dsnser Senator Bristow admitted that the ad ministration bill might develop Into a benevolent bankng moncpoly. but ex pressed the fear that It would grow into a far-reaching and menacing danger. Ho denied the Justice of the compliments that had been extended to the work of the authors of the currency bill In the Senator Bristow said there did not seem to be any serious effort on the part of the Democrats to curb the money trust Referring to the absence of all provi sions for Interlocking directorates. -Senator Bristow said: ..,.. "It Is by that means that tho alleged Tt-ii .-t monoDoly of credit has been vehemently denounced by the partisans of this administration. Yet this bill, which has passed the House, la championed by .k- hTim.n of the Senate committee and by Mr. Untermyer. the attorney for tho Pujo Investigating v.oramnurc u has ardent support of the President, has not incorporated in it a single line that will carry out the finding ot the Pujo cmmlttee." . Senator Hitchcock, who has been ab sent for if week, returned yesterday and began' taking an active part in the dis cussion. He insisted on keeping a quorum- of the Senate, urged that the subject before the Senate was too im portant to be aisposeo. oi iiooi " slderatlon and frequently demanded a roll call to bring Senators to their seats. .Art Slasterplece Bonuht.
