ed a lively discussion In the senate
Senator Horah of Idaho made a
point of order against those lncreasfs
on the ground that they Involve gen
eral legislation, which, according to
tho rules of the senate, cannot be
placed on an appropriation bill In face
of a single objection. The debate
centered upon the first of the amend
ments objected to. which was to In
crease the salary of the speaker of
the house of representatives, and
various criticisms were called forth
oga'nst such extensive advance of
salaries, although many senators with
out, opposing some Increase, insisted
that It should be considered in a sep
arate bill and not on one of the great
supply measures of the government.
Without concluding the debate,
further consideration of the amend
ments w.ip postponed until next Mon
day. At 5 : 05 tho senate adjourned.
When later in the day tho salary
question was reverted to Senators
Idge and Hale took opposite views
of the parl'amenlary statements of the
amendments. Mr. Lodge Insisted that
under the rule3 of the senate a point
of order would not lie ngainrt them,
while Mr. Halo declared that such
amendments were properly genera!
legislation and are included In the re
strictive rules of the senate. He said,
however, that as there had been v.';st
additions to the military ependltures
he saw no reason why congress should
not Increase these salaries. Mr. Clay
spoke against the proposed increases,
which he said, aggregated $404,500. Tie
based bis opposition on tho ground
that the additions wore too great and
said ho would not oppose smaller ones.
Ho insisted that ho Lad no feeling
against (ho newly elected president,
