Washington March IS It was a
memorable fight which daylight found
rtlll in progress in the houso A stub
horn filibuster on the part of Spoaker
Cannon and tho house organization
nu equally relentless attack on the
part of the alllos these were the
distinguishing features in the hottest
fight that hns yet been made to over
throw the present control of the
house
It was extraordinary in many was I
For Instance the odd spectacle was
presented of the house preponderant
ly Republican ordering the arreat of
tho absentees of that party on the
motion of a Democrat carried by tho
Democratic votes
Then tooit is not often that a fill
buster is carried on by the i uvular
house organization virtually 1i by
the speaker supposedly In full control
of the house machinery to provenl
consideration of n resolution designed
to overthrow that organization make
the rules nnd reorganize radically the
committee the tenure of whose chair
manship is supposed to be the chief
asset of the speakers wealth of
power
It is many years old observers say
In fact no precise parallel was sug
gested last night since tho house re
mained actually in session all night
nnd that after an allday session To
make the odd situation odder still the
weary task of watch the sole was
left to the theoretically triumphant
minority while the recalcitrant mem
bers of the majority such ns escaped
the searching deputies stole naps or
longer sloops In places of comfor
Tho big light was virtually unex
pected by all parties Lo it It was pre
cipitated late In tho afternoon when
Representative Crumpacker of In
diana tried again to secure considera
tion of a resolution amending the cen
SUB act The issue was a purely tech
nical one of parliamentary procedure
but It was the same on which the
speaker was defeated the day hefor
The organization apparently labored
under the delusion that they had suc
ceeded In gaining Democratic votes
enough to turn into victory the defeat
of the day before They were sadly
mistaken for at every stage of thq
game they wore beaten Probably tho
insurgentDemocratic allies were aK
much surprised as the regulars at
heir victory However thai may be
they certainly made the most of It
Representative Norris of Nebraska
forthwith took occasion to produce
from hlA desk a resolution providing
for a reorganization of the committee
on rules It would create a new plan
of choosing the committee the Im
portant thing being thnt It would
make tho speaker Ineligible for mem
bership on tho committee on which
he Is now chairman I
Representative Dalzoll of Iomiiol
vanla Republican made tho point of
order that the resolution could not bo
presented under the order of business
then In process The regulars through
out the whole struggle have made
this their fighting point
The allloH on the other hand de
manded a ruling by the speaker on I
his point their evident expectation
being to appenl from the expected ad I
verso decision of the clmlr and to 1
merrulo tho speaker The speaker
011 his part insists that in order to I
make a proper ruling on the point of
order he must hao time to consult I
Iho precedents The DcmocratH took I
nvcry opportunity to demand a ruling
from tho speaker I
Both nidOB exhausted their oratori i
cal resources in attack nad defense
Most of Uio speakers consumed tho I
full hours time allowed them under I
the rules Several exceeded this limb
limit
Nobody protended to know early to
day what in detail would l > 9 the out
come of the battle ovon if the allies
nhould win their first point Every
body did know hoxvever that the
speaker and the rcgulac organiza
tion were standing with their hacks
I to the wall fighting for their very ex
I Istonce
i The long night in the house was re
I plete with amusing Incidents as the
I weary Democrats tried to while away
the hours of waiting for the sergeant
atarms to bring in the recalcitrant
Republicans The funniest of them all
I came when the officers found one lone
I Republican Holllngsworth of Ohio
i peacefully asleop at his hotel They
served the house warrant requiring
I tho Ohioan to get up and dress and
come before the bar of the house Ho
I came protesting with voluble Indigna
tion that he was regularly paired and
I entitled to lie in bed
I 1 want to know Mr Hollings
I worth shouted who made the motloii
on which T was arrested
The record was read and Mr Hoi
I lingsworth was Informed that ho was
arrested on the order of the house
I But was everybody Included in the
I order besides me demanded the an
grv representative During Mr Hoi
llngsworlhs whole speech which was
a long one tho house was Iti n gale
of laughter the Democrats evident
finding peculiar Joy in baiting the one
poor victim of tho search of the ser
geant atnrnis and he paired with a
Democrat
Mr Clayton made the point of or
I der whenhe heard thqt Mr Holllngs
worth had boon asleep In a leading
I hotel that no Republican who stayed
at an expensive hotel had a right to I
be paired with any Democrat
hi wanted to know why I was ar
rested demanded Mr Holllngs
worth and who signed the warrant
For half an hour the horse play
went on the Democrats shrieking
with laughter at Mr Holllngs worths
I indignation Finally ho was excused
I During thoIntor afternoon as the
dehat6 grew heated Speaker Cannon
sat quietly In his chair now and then
shifting hs crossed legs and nervous
ly fingering the gavel with his left
hand now and then sipping the glass
of water at his side Ills face woro
a serious look and his lips were tight
ly compressed A red carnation in the
buttonhole of his coat supplied the
only bit of color In tho speakers
otherwise somber appearance Now
and then ho leaned with his elbows
on the desk in front of him and gazed
Intently at the members who were de
nouncing the speakers alleged domi
nation of the house At times when
the disorder grew so great that mom
hers who were engaged In the debate
could be heard but a few feet outside
of the Interested and clamorous
groups which surrounded them the
speaker wielded his gavel vigorously
demanding The house will conic to
order
With quiet once more restored ho
would again recognize the fiery Insur
gent engaged In berating him
Several times he called regular
Republicans to the chair and walked
Into the corridor for a few moments
or mingled with the throng of mem
bers In front of the speakers desk
loiter In the evening he went to the
restaurant on the floor below and
while the Impassioned speeches of the
latter part of the evening were being
delivered the speaker reclined in a
barbers chair in the House shop and
quietly enjoyed a shave and a mas
sage
Then he returned to the house
watching the proceedings until the
time came when he demanded a
chance to answer the accusations of
Reprcscntallvo Cooper
tncle Joe was In his room all
night now and then coming out Into
the HOURO where Representative Dal
zell held the chnlr lie seemed Impcr
lurbed by all Iho warfare going on
about his head
Underlying all the events and hi
larity of tho night was an exceed
ingly serious vein This appeared es
pecially when Representative Norris
nt n20 proposed an adjournment un
til noon They had exemplified the
principle for which they stood he
said and here they were In the dawn
after a sleepless night wearying
themselves out fruitlessly while the
mon they were fighting were getting
a good nights sleep
Mr Tames of Kentucky made an
eloquent protest against any conces
sion to personal comfort which would
tend to detract from the Impressive
ness ot the object lesson which they
were giving to tho public of devotion
I to tho public business while the Re
publican regulars were deliberately
I absent In the pursuance of a conspir
acy to prevent a quorum
I About 530 a m there was a hot
I donate about the possibility of ap
pointing a new sergeanlatarms or
other officers necessary to bring In the
absent mqinbcre It was the general I
opinion that the sergeantatarms nnd
hi deputies were making no sincere j
effort to find the missing Republicans I
I Mr Dnlzcll In the chair ruled that
the minority there present was help
less to appoint any additional officers
cf the House
Tho Democrats contended that the
appointment of additional officers nec
essary to secure a quorum was an
essential part of the powers conferred
upon less than a quorum by the con
stitution of tho Inlled States and the
rules of the House
There was a long wrangle about
this and finally Representative Hard
wick Dem of Gqorgia moved the ap
pointment of a temporary assistant
sergenntatarms with authority to
employ additional assistance to bring
in the missing representatives
I The chair ruled the motion out of
ord rbut on appeal was overruled
with a shout The same procedure
I
was gone through with on a motion
that the newly appointed officers be
equipped with new warrants
Then the new officers went out to
look for the missing Republicans This
affair took on a somewhat different
i aspect however when Speaker Can
I non himself came on the scene This
I was about C a in
Mr Burlcsnn of Texas demanded of
I the speaker whether he had signed
tho warrants as ordered by this
House
Incle Joes voice quivered with
suppressed rage as he replied with a
bang of the gavel
The chair declines to be catechised
by the gentleman from Texas
This defiance by the speaker struck
sparks nil Ocr the room Mr Dune
sons face was very red and his voice
shook with passion as ho said
With all respect to the speaker of
this House im I to understand that
the speaker declines to obey the man
date of this House Have not these
warrants been issued
I
Warrants were Issued shouted
the speaker under the rules for sum
moning of each of the ahsenlees
I mean the warrant ordered by
this House to be given to loo Sin
nott who was appointed by this House
ns assistant sergeant atarms per
sisted Mr Burleson
The chair has no knowledge of any I
Joe Slnnott whoever hn may he re
torted tho speaker with scornful de I
liberation
I submit the speaker Is as much
bound shouted tho Texan to carry
out the will of this House when there
Is not a quorum as when there is a
quorum
Then followed a lively Interchange
participated in by Messrs Underwool
of Alabama Olm lead of Pennsylva
nia James of Kentucky and the
speaker the latter evidently suppress
ing his emotions wlthrmich difficulty
The end of it was the speaker re
fused to recognize the authority of
less than a quorum to Issue any war
rants for anybody
Lcm than a quorum has no powers
In this respect saO those conferred
upon it by tho rules Such a warrant I
as that requested the speaker care
fully emphasized the word requested I
by the gentleman from Texas and
the members less than n quorum
would he null and void and would be
no protection to Ir Joe Slnnott
whoever ho may be The speaker will
hesitate long before performing a
ministerial duty under the rules other
wise than prescribed by the rules
Tho speaker then modified his ag I
gressive tone and continued remark
I
Ing that the long night vigil had cl
dently led certan members to he some
what careless in the use of language
and to cost suspicion upon faithful
employes
I hiivo never known a quorum to
be obtained in the early morning
hours or before daybreak he said
By this time the heat noticeably
cooled there was sonic desultory ar
gument but everybody appeared to
lose Interest thereafter in the new
assistant serjeantatarms and his un
signed warrants
The hands of the big round clock
In the back of the hall Indicated S
ocloclc when the rollcall was con
cluded It was evident to the most
casual observer that the Olmstcad
motion had been lost but there was
no hurry In announcing the result I
It required some time for the clerks
to make their tally and the speaker
himself showed no disposition to ex
pedite matters At last he stated that
the motion had been defeated 24 to
93 with 29 present hut not voting
A weary yawning from tho Demo
cratic side of the house which was
audible throughout tho chamber con
stituted the most animated demon
stration that greeted the announce
ment
At this hour Undo Too was Blill
at the helm He appeared slightly
worn but the carnation which had
graced his Japel yesterday was still
froBh nnd his voice was not the least
bit hiinky
Mr Mann raised the point of no
quorum but apparently the speaker
was not cerlaln of the footing of even
as close a frfond as tho Chicago meD
her whoso hair bad not been combed
for twentyfour hours and he refused
to entertain the point He held that
as the house was not eventhen un
dergoing the process of a call the
point could not he entertained
There is a quorum of record ho
said but It docs not materialize
Ho then stated that no business
could be transacted so long as there
was not a sufficient number to meet
tho requirements of parliamentary
practice Immediately tbo House
thinned out Probably not fifty mem
bers were left In their scats and some
of them were asleep ijome reading
the morning papers other gathered I
In groups wearily discussing the sit
nation The speaker held his post
Idly toying with his gaVel with the I
same fondufips often manifested by an
old hunter towards a gun with which
ho had brought down much gome I
Some of hla Democratic friends took i
advantage of the opportunity and i
going to his side join d In Jovial con I
I
veraation
Admittedly it was the lull before
tho storm with nil orts of things I
predicted before the close of the day
and members generally were prepar
ing for a strenuous tmio
There will he some snakekilling
before the day Is ovoY said Champ
Clark as he sat In hfs scat ruboins
his tired eyes I
Many Including the speaker won
to breakfast Even Republican Whip
Dwight wandered out forabrief nsr
and was found asleep In a quiet cor I

crack a joke al his eXp 11Re He lc
fended himself agnlnsl the eharRo of
not having his Republjoan cohorts In
attendance hv saying that the respon
sibility for time white mans burden
had been taken from his ahouldeis
and turned over to ho scrgeanlat
arms The speaker ate sparingly Ho
ordered breadsticks fj largo cup of
coffee and two hardboiled eggs I
That the day which had begun at
noon yesterday had bcxjn an exciting
one was shown by thjf ofilclal report
ers notes Thej had taken down
110000 word more titan three tlmos
thc average and none of them had

There is no doubt ot he result un I
less there Is some legerdemain
Minority Leader ChQmjfc Clark who
stayed nt his post all night made the
same prediction adding J that it was
the most remarkable struggle in the
histor of congress
At 11 oclock the tense situation ex
isting would never hate been suspect
ed from the appearance of the floors
of the house Apparently It was much I
more serene that it had ben at any
time since the condition de eloped
yesterday The Insurgent Republicans I
still Were In conference and the regu j
lar Republicans were declaring that
the result of the rncbiing would he a

While the conference was on the
house was practically recess ThC
speaker kept some one In the chair
but he wnndtrd around the corridors

cerned over the strife qvor him
The members good naturedly disf

Nothing could be < done until the in I
