Harmony May Be Destroyed.
Some members of the House who are
now here believe that if the power to
appoint committees Is taken away
from the Democratic speaker in tne
Slitvsecond congress and handed
over to the membership all hope oi
harmony In the Democratic ranks may
be abandoned. It would mean the up
setting of the seniority rule and tne
turning down of many men of long
service, who have been the minority
ranking members of the most power
ful committees. On the other hand,
It Is pointed out that harmony also
would suffer from a maintenance of
the seniority rule, as that rule would
give to the south the chairmanships
of all the great committees and leave
unrecognized the new Democratic
membership from northern and west
Under the seniority rule the commit
tee on agriculture would go to Lamb
of Virginia, banking and currency to
Pujo of Louisiana, census to Hay of
Virginia, foreign adalrs to Flood of
Virginia, Immigration to Burnett of
Alabama, Indian affairs to Stephens of
Texas, Interstate and foreign com
merce to Adamson of Georgia, judici
ary to Clayton of Alabama, merchant
marine and fisheries to Clark or Hr
Ida, naval affairs to Padgett of Ten
nessee, patents to I.egaro of South
Carolina. Dcnslons to Richardson of
Alabama, postofllce to Moon of Ten
nessee, printing to Hnley of South
Carolina, public buildings to Sheppuid
of Texas, public lands to Robinson ol
Arkansas, rivers and harbors to
Sparkman of Florida, territories to
IJovd of Missouri and ways on
means, the greatest of nil, to Under
wood of Alabama, unless Champ Clark
of Missouri, who Is now tlie ranking
minority lender, should fall to capture
the speakership. .
Fitzgerald Will Lose Place.
Appropriations, under the seniority
rule, would go to Fitzgerald of New
York, but it Is suid that he Is so dls
liked by the prospective speaker that
this place probubly would be given to
Burleson of Texas. Military affairs
under the seniority arrangements
would go to Sulzer of New York and
there Is little do.ibt that he will cap
ture this Important chairmanship un
der whatever plan Is adopted.
Whether the seniority rule is re
tained or the speaker be permitted to
name committees or the selection be
left to the membership of the house,
all of those who are now the minority
ranking members of the principal com
mittees nre expected to insiBt upon
promotions to chairmanship. They
will claim that their long service In
the house entitles them to these as a
matter of right.
