RULING GUARANTEES THIS Congressmen Can't See How New. Clause Can Fail to Be Ruled Out. By THEODORE TILLER. The U.ivoriitnent olerhs have prac tically won thflr flGht agaln-ft tlio norland elffht-hour rider. Chancni today nrc dbcldedly apalnst tltr miltltntf offered by ConKress man Borland when Ills oiMclnal amendment In the leclslntlve. execu tive nnd Judicial appropriation bill vita ruled out on a point of order lato yesterday. A caroful teadlnp of tlio rullns of '.halrmnn Crisp. preHdlntr durtnK dh ctiMslon of the bill. shows It Is a vlr litil Riiuinntcc tlio t tlio substitute J'orland proposal will meet tho fato of tlio otlglnal k tt Is not orn under that r'lllnir nv Mr. norland or the Appropria tions Committee can draw an cliilit l'.our piovlslon that will stand the pnrll.infentnr.v lft. Ruling by Crisp. Chairman Crlap tulcd that 'the chair is clearly of the opinion that nn;t- amendment that reduce expendi ture, to be In order under tho Hoi man i tile, ntuet conin fro.n a com mittee having Jul lrilctlon of n legis lative NUbJcct." It t conceded that the Appropria tions Committee linn no jurisdiction ever legislation affecting tho hour of labor of Government clerks. Tho committee on leform In tho civil rervlco Is- properly chrrged with re sponsibility foi such legislation. Another portion of Mr. Crisp's rul Itiir clrcunisci'lbcp the privilege of-an Individual member to offer legisla tion thnt would not be in order on the bill of ,i 'non-leKlslatlvt com mlltpp. When consideration of the Norland substitute is Mfiiined In the House, probably on Tuesday. Ihu ame point of order aitecusai'ully nr?uel acnlnst the orlcliiiil incpcral will be utilized nrnlnst the subrtlU'te foncresjmnn Mondoll I prepnied to contend that In the inibilltuto Con?rcssmnn Holland eeks to do Indirectly that which ho failed to do directly The original Holland rider provlde.l for nn clchthor.i day In all ilovemuTMit, departments. The aubstllute proposes An clcht-hour day, ilh tbe additional provision that tr.erc shnll he a I'l rer eent reduction hi tho number of eri ploycs of all fJou'innieiit depaitmonts Putn Hope in Change. Tly this hitter provision Mr. Borland hopes to meet the fatal objection that his original prorosal did not show that It reduced orendltures, f.nd hence did pofr havo about It tho protection of the Jlolmar rule. Never. helefs the tclal of the appro )n lutloiv bill is not lessened by the sub. ctltute. nranl'iur that the V per cent reduc tion mlaht be In older, thr elaht-honr requirement Is onolher i.ronoslilon al tho'iKh adroitly linked y Mr. norland vlth Mie foimei ff one nHsiuncf. for the sake of argti mem, that the Tint-land substitute it In order, thero Is little prospect that sueh a substitute would he approved by the votes of ttouso members. Legislators of the lower hndv have not yt reached the point where they nr wllllncr to discharge approximately A.W Government emnloves one. tenth of tho force- simply for tho FDko of nncunr anoiuer nour to the working day of the survivors. Members of Comcres have enough .trouble as It Is. The Individual Con prehuman does not care to precipitate a situation wlmreundcr n number of his Jobless constituents will rush to Capitol Hill for aid when these constituents get the "bluo envelope" under the IV per cent reduction scheme. All Would Get Pleas. There Is hardly a member of Congress whoso Influence would not bo sought to hold a Job for somebody about to bo fired fiom one of tho departments. It Is about a SO to 1 bet. therefore, that no legislation will be approved by Conpiess that requires the dlschante of one-tenth of tbo force here In Washing ton. The Hweeidng effect of .Mr. Borland's substitute rider makes It improbable of consideration, except for the brief dis cussion scheduled hefoie It is knocucd out or. a point of order. Tho UorlMid substitute reads a fol lows: "That the number of persons In tin; classified service nuthnitzcd to bo ef ployed In tho scveial execu.Uo denai t mentrt nnil other executive establish juents and the Oovernment of thn DIs trie t of Columbia shall bo reduced ov one-tenth on or beforfcJhe 30th djv of Juno.

Point Sustained. After dlscit'slhsr a number ef precei donts. Chairman Cilsii rendered tho fcl lowlnc rulluu nwtnlnliiK the Moudell point of prdcr ngulnst Iho original nor land provision: "It wan the pracllco under the rules of the Houso that legislation is not In order on nn 'appropriation bill unless It comes within tho exception known as the Ilolman rule, under ',' rulc. ' certain instances legis lation Is n order. Tho Chair Is of tho opinion that section 6 In tho bill un der, consideration does not retrench expenditures by the number or salary of .-any ofpeer of -the United Htatca. The Chair Is also of. the opinion that It does not within tho nieattlnir of tho rule reduce tho compensation of any person paid out of the Treasury of the United Htates. and tho chair Is of tho opinion that dt docs not ro duoo tho amount of money covered by the bill, "Then the question arises that the Chair determine whether tho amend ment Is In order under the proviso of tho Ilolman rule. The gentleman from Missouri, Mr. norland, and the gentleman from Wyoming;, Mr. Mon doll, both concede that tho Commltteo on Appropriations ts not.a legislative committee. Therefore the Chair' will not rite authority to that effect, al though the Chair could do so. "German Amendments." "In the opinion of tho Chair rin In dividual member can offer germane amendments and If they fal.l within any of the excepted classes tho amendments are In order, even If legislation. Hut tho Chair has ruled that In the opinion of the Chair tho section in .question does not come within any one of those three classes. The Committee of Appropriations, be ing n non-loglslatlvo committee, bus no moto uuthorlty to Insert us u part of a bill section t, than any member would have tho right to offer said 'section 6 as an amendment on tho floor of tho House. "Tho Chair docs not feel that It Is Incumbent op him to pass upon ueot.'oti 6 as to whrther or not It would reduce expenditures. Tho Chair, however, is of tho opinion that under tho Hohnan rule the amendment must show ths.t a i eduction naturally follows to tr;n' It within the purview of the rule. "The chair docs not believe thu the opinion of tome one that the amend ment might reduce and the opinion of another that tt might not be legitimate for the Chair to consider, but the Chair must (icte-niine from tho amendment Itself whether or not Its natural conse quence Is to reduce, expenditures. "As beforo stated, however, the Chair Is not required to pass upon tna:, for the Chair Is clearly of the opinion that any amendment that reduces expendi tures, to be In order under tho Ilolman rule, roust come from a committee hav ing Jurisdiction of a legislative subject. The Committee on Appropriations In this Instance, not being a lelrslatlve committee, was wlthut uuthorlty to Insert section 6 in tho bill and th ire fore tho Chair sustains tho point of order." Two Make Chicr Fight. Conjrcssmen Galllvan and Mondcl) marie the chief fight against the nor land rider. Mr. Galllvan argued that the nor land proposal was not In tho Interest of governmental economy and wodld af fect no reductions In the number of cmploj'es. The Massachusetts member said he had received letters from the chief clerks of the various departments saying an eight-hour day would not result In a reduction of force the chief point made by Mr. norland. The keynote of Congressman norland's theory was sounded In the following statement on the floor: "There Is no doubt that If the Gov ernment obtained a full day's work from Its employes In place of a lessor day's work, either more work will bo a . , . - ii m a i MW S n. ,- -! n..i.

' The Chair, however, did not agree with Mr. norland, mid a quick death thrust was given nls schemo by Mr. Cilsp.
