HERRIOT IS UPHELD;
CHAMBER IN TURMOIL
Premier Wins Confidence Vote, 313
to 234, in Violent Meeting
I of Deputies.
USHERS PREVENT CLASHES
Majority and Minority Members
Often Near Blows.
P.y the Associated Tress.
PARIS. June 20.—The Chamber ol
Deputies last night voted confidence
in Premier Herriot, in connection with
the declaration of the new government.
The vote was 313 to 234.
The sitting, which it was intended to
adjourn today to enable M. Herriot to
prepare for his Loudon visit, was
dragged out by a healed discussion
as to whether Alsace-Lorraine should
lie treated exactly the same as France
on religious questions, and by disputes
which kept the ushers busy preventing
members from coming to blows. M.
Harriot's majority was large enough to
be of some consolation for his reverse
in the Senate, when his candidate for
the presidency of that body, M. Bien
venue-Martin, was defeated by Justin
tie Selves by seventeen votes.
DiKliirlinnre Violent,
Debate on the declaration of the new
government in the Chamber of Depu
ties aroused a violent disturbance.
Only a suspension of the session pre
vented it from degenerating into a
physical clash between nieipbers of the
majority and the minority.
Maurice Bokanowski, former min
ister of marine, reminded the govern
ment that the Poincare ministry and
•he old Chamber of Deputies had
succeeded in balancing the budget,
despite the opposition of M. Herriot,
the new premier, and his friends.
M. Bokanowski wanted to know
whethei the new government intend
ed to maintain the taxes against
which its friends had voted and
whether it would fulfill the promise
to give 1,800 francs a year as supple
mentary pay to functionaries. Th»
members of the majority were greatly
excited by the arguments put for
ward by the orator and interrupted
him continually.
Sees Ruhr Vets Profit.
When Yves Le Trocquer. former
minister of public works, declared
that the occupation of the Ruhr had
netted a clear profit above the ex
pense,; of occupation, amounting to
2.000,000,0h0 francs from January,
1923. to April. 1924, the excitement
rose to fever heat.
When M. Herriot rose to reply to
the interpolators, interruptions" be
gan on the minority side of the house
and trouble ensued almost immedi
ately. Replying to an interruption
by (Jen. D- Saint-Just, the Socialist
deputy Maurice Raynaud, former
minister of the colonies, cried out:
‘'Generals are assassins! Shut up!”
Members of the tenter and right
crowded around the new minister of
war, Gen. Nollet, shouting. "Nollet.
Nollet!”
Deputies from the right and left
then rushed at one another, while
ishers exerted themselves to keep the
ngry deputies apart until the presi
ent of the chamber was able to sus
end the session.

ber of Deputies, which desired above
all the election of M. Bienvenu-Mar
tin. . .
In all probability this will not be
the last move in the dispute. Pre
mier Herriot’s position is shaken and
his term in office may be shortened.
He will have a lively time when he
explains the government program to
the upper house as he did to the
lower house.
For superficial observers the situa
tion Is surprising, because the Senate,
like the Chamber, professes a Liberal
majority and both co-operated in
overthrowing President Mlllerand.
Inside observers have seen trouble
on the horizon for some time, how
ever, as M. Herriot bitterly offended
his party colleagues in the Senate
when he backed Paul Painleve
against Gaston Doumergue for the
presidency of the republic. The lat
ter retains great influence in the
Senate.
