rule, glving thn Houso power to dis
'char.ge a commltteo from tho con?
sideratlon of a blll, was admlnlaf.orod
when its flrst trial occurred yesterday.
This rule was procured nfter a hard
light last session, to provlde thc means
whereby a blll could be brought betore
thc House when a commltteo reluncil
to report lt, or dolayed too lons ln act
ing upon it.
Speaker Cannon ruled yesterday thal
thc postal reorganlzatlon blll should
be read ln full, when the motion was
made to bring lt before the House
Less thnn one-fourth of vhe blll could
he read yesterday; and a{ tho same
rate, it wlll take at least three days to
finish the readlng. As this buslness ls
recognized only overy flrst and third
Monday of the montn. all motions of a
llko character wlll be dclayerl almost
two months, before tho motion finally
la put to tfSc House, na to whether the
postal blll shall bo consldered.
The Insurgents declaro that this ls a
restralnt of business, whlch can be
casily remodlerl bv a J=matl cliange ln
