DRY LOSES IN HOUSE Prohibitionists Poll 197 Votes to Opponents 189t-TJwo-thirdslNeeded to Carry. RUSSELL KEEPS HIS PROMISE, VOTES DRY Hobson and Underwood Spar For Supremacy and Latter Wins Again. Washington, Dec.122 The Hobson resolution to submij to the' states a constitutional amendment for nation- al prohibition was 'defeated - in the House at 10 o'clock tonight by a vote of 197 for the resolution and 189 against. A two-thirds majority was necessary to pass the measure, which would have sent it, to the United States Senate for cdneurrance or re-i jection. . Ten Missouri Congressmen voted the resolution and feur against it Speaker Clark did not vote. Joseph J. Russell of the Fourteenth District kept the promise he made to the dry leaders back in his district two years ago, and voted with a majority of his state's delegation, y During the recent campaign Mr. Russell was urged by voters from his district to declare himself on National prohibition but he avoided taking a stand, but he was careful not to offend either the wets or the drys. The vote cast by, the Missourians was as follows: f'or prohibitions Alexander, Borland,: Decker, Dickin son, Hamlin, Hensley, Lloyd, Russell, Rubey and Shacklefbrd. Those voting Egainst it: Bosher, Gill, Igoe and Bartholdt, all of St. Louis. Several times during the ballot ing efforts were made to create a demonstration for both sides, but the Sergeant at Arms soon squelched the disturbers. The vote on the special rule was a rolling chorus of "aye." The debate was one of the most interesting if not the most spectacular of recent years. The passage of the rule, whjch was like the snow and it's as the best drink made. conceded by those opposing the Hob son resolution, many of whom voted for the rule to get the resolution out to a vote, was preceded by a state ment by Democratic Leader Under wood and scattering debate on both sides. Underwood made it clear that the Democratic leadership in the House was in fayor of meeting the issue with a vote. V "This is not a temperance question," said he. "It never has been. Prohibi tion has not produced temperance in the lands where it has been tried. I re gard his question as an attack on the fundamental principles of our Gov ernment. If it is allowed to go with out being met it will mislead many of the people. If allowed to proceed with out beinpr combated, the day may come when it may be a serious menace to the principles of Government which you and I believe in." The debate on the rule had been a running desultory fire but with con sideration of the resolution itself the real heavy artillery was unlimbered Representative Hobson,' author of the prohibition resolution, led off with a dramatic demand for its passage. He declared a state had a right to be "dry," that the liquor business was an "interstate nuisance," and that there had never been a serious conflict be tween Federal and state laws for pro tection of the morals of the people. He portrayed the devastating effect of liquor, "a habit-forming drug whose shackled victims," he said, today num bered 5,000,000. Representative Hobson referred to the graphic charts portraying the evils of the liquor traffic and, after speaking only 10 minutes, began- to yield time to other members who spoke in support of his resolution. Representative Connolly supported the amendment, declaring prohibition should be a success in Kansas, and Representative Morgan of Oklahoma also supported it, referring to prohibi tion in his State, Representatives Decker, Tribble, Langley, Log, vid Bell (California) made briei ?3)eeche8 in favor of the amendment Repre sentative Ferriss of Oklahoma made a vigorous plea for it. - Representative Underwood, then speaking on the resolution, directly, opposed it "We are here; today," he said, "to consider a proposal as to whether certain police regulations should be turned over to the Federal Government instead of being allowed to remain in the Government of ran? foil I.- 5 ous states, where the founders 1 nation placed them." Underwood declared thai the prin ciple of national prohibition "was the very principle which our forefathers fought; the same principle of central ization that destroyed the ancient re publics of Greece and Rome." "In an idle hour," he continued, "there has grown up in this republic a faction which, clothed in the white robe of temperance for all men be lieve in temperance would tear down the foundation stones of our national existence." He declared prohibition would cost $325,000,000 in lost revenue. .Chairman .Webb of the Judiciary Committee read an amendment, in the nature of a substitute, by Repre sentative Morrison of Indiana. It would absolutely prohibit the ship ment of liquor in interstate and for eign commerce. "My reading of the law," he said, is iiiak xsvugicao uui? iku uic 11511. pass legislation equivalent to the Mor rison amendment under the provision of the Constitution giving it the power to regulate foreign and interstate commerce." . Republican Leader Mann indorsed the argument that any further sur render of police powers by the states to the Federal Government would be dangerous. He argued that the en forcement of i national prohibition would necessitate "an army of Gov ernment spies with every township in the country under surveilance." "You take away by this, resolution," he said, "the power of the local self governments to enforce the police reg ulatione which must depend upon lo cal public opinion "for their enforce ment. And you turn it over to the Government- here in Washington, which wil lhavc no means of enforce ment" Representative Browne of Wisconsin also opposed the amend ment ' The session began two hours earlier than usual, in order that the question might be brought to a final vote to day, and the galleries were well filled from the beginning. Lobbies for both the prohibition and liquor forces were active both befort and during the de bate, the dry element being represent ed by clergymen and others, who im portuned House members in the cor ridors and even pointed put to them the danger of their defeat at the next election. If they did not lupport the resolution.
