RICHARDSON trRINCt COMriEU SURPRISE
Damoerate Eihnnet Their ItVeeareee
In Seeking ta Cheek tha Carre at
of irrrevat af tha
WASHINGTON, Feb. IT. The unexpected
happened la the house today when the hill
to repeal th waf revenue taxes was passed
unanimously without . a word of debate.
Thla action was tha outcome of a challeoge
thrown down by Mr. Richardson of Ten
nessee, ths minority leader, after the
adoption by a etrtct party veta of a spa
tial order for tha consideration of the bill,
which permitted debate on It until 4 o'clock
tomorrow afternoon, but' eut eft all op
portunities to offer amendments except
those egreed upon by the ways and means
committee; ' :.:-
The adoption of the rula had been pre
ceded by a storm debste. In the course of
which th democrats protected against the
application ot the "gag," which Mr. Hay
of Virginia charged was mesnt to prevent
a free expression, not only hv the demo
crats, but by soma of the republicans, at
tention being especially directed toward
Mr. Babcock of Wisconsin, the father ot th
bill, to amend the eteel - schedule of the
present tariff law. They also charged that
such a method ot procedure waa minimis
ing the Influence of the house and making
It simply a machine, to register tba de
crees of the' few men In control.

Mr. Babcock said that h supported the
program an tha ground that tha Issue pre
sented for the repeal of the war revenue
tax and should not be complicated with
other mattera. At th ssma time he gsvs
notice that ha should press hit own bill at
the first opportunity.'' - . .
Mr. Daltell of Pennsylvania scored a
point against the minority by recalling
tha time, undsr democratic control ot the
house, when ty4 amendments to the Wilson
tariff bill had been forced 'through without
being read. When the rule was sdopted,
by a vote of 15$ to 12ft, M.' Richardson,
to emphaslie tha fast that debate oa -the
bill could accomplish nothing and that de
liberation an it would ba fruitless, asked
unanimous consent that tha bill be placed
an Its passags, not an objection was voiced
and tha votev waa taken forthwith. Every
rota, ITS In number, waa caat in tha affirm
ative and tha house quietly tame to tha
end of what at one time had'piomtsed to
be one of tha most exciting contests of th
Alter some minor business had been
cleared away Mr. Dalsell of Pennsylvania,
from th committee on rules', presented
tba special order agreed up by that com
mittee. Mr. Dalsell explained the effect of
tha rule. Thla measure, be aatd, waa pre
sented to redeem -a pledge made when the
war revenue taxes were Impoeed that when
the necessity fof them ceased they would
ba repealed. Thla waa a measure on which,
he took It, there- waa practically unanimity
ot sentiment on both sides of the house. It
was a simple repeal meaaure, and it waa
deemed wise that it should be brought to. a
vote without, complication on the extra
Issues. . , . .
Protest at Minority.
At the conclusion of this brief statement
Mr. Dalsell yielded thirty minutes to Mr
Underwood of Alabama, also, ot tb com
mittee, on-, rules... .Tha,. Alabama, .member
proieaiea against tne aaopiion oi in rule
and offered this amendment:'-- '' -

becoming operative, shall- be aubmltted to
tne congress or ine united states for
ratification, amendment or rejection.
Hcasoaa of Minority.
The reason for th presentation of tha
rula, Mr. Hay declared, waa because it was
necessary to gsg two republican members
sf the republican way and' means com
mittee, -a number of republicans on ths
floor and a number of . democrats of the
bouse. Ha referred to reports In tha news
papers that, even tb president had been
converted to the view that "Iron band
was necessary ta prevent wholesale re.
vision at the tariff. . At thla point Mr. Bab
cock of Wisconsin, on ot tb members
ot tha waya and means committee, read
a statement ot nis reaaons tor favoring
tha adoptlon-of tha rula. It was to the
effect that aner consultation ha and his
colleagues did not consider It wise to
Jeopardise tha passags of tha repeal hill
by complicating matters and ha gave no

press for tha consideration, of r his bill to
amend the-eteel schedule,

pending role would humiliate every mem
bar on the floor, because It prevented tha
altering ot a. .single amendment to thla
bill. It was such display of cowardice
aa never before had been witnessed in tha
house. (Applause.) T
Mr. Cannon .of. Illinois argued earnestly
tn favor of tha adoption of tba rule. Even
It other revenue reduction1 was advisable
It ahould not atand, he said. In the way
at the repeal of taxes gathered In the
treasury from tn peopje there to con
stltuta a prise upon exploitation.
'Let us," said be, in conclusion, ad
dressing his aid of the house, ';take the
responsibility for tha repeal of those taxes,
aa we, took.th responsibility for their lm-
position. " (Republican applauae.)
Mr. Richardson, closed tn aeosts tor
the minority. In doing ha offered to
yield halt his lima to anyone oa ths repub
lican aide who cared to oppoee the adoption
at th rule. He paused-. when he bed mad
tba offer, but no republican roe. Smiling
faces looked over at him from across the
alala. ' ' ' " 1 '
Dalsell Closes Debate.
Mr. Dalsell closed the debate on tha rule.
In view of the aolloltude of tba gentlemau
from Virginia, (Mr. Hay), and tha gentle
maa from Texas, (Mr. Ball), regarding the
situation In .the houae, ha said be would
refer ta soma hlatory. After calling at
tention to the fact that not a member oa
tha other aide had raised his voles against
the adaption of tha rule for the considera
tion ot th Philippine tariff bill, a rule
which be aald waa aa drastic a this one.
ha told how tha democrats in ths Fifty-
third congress hsd swallowed M amend
ments to th Wtlaoa tariff bill without even
having them read la the houee. Th dignity
ot tha houae, aad tha legislation ot th
country, h declared, amid applauae, were
safe In tha haada of tha republican party.
Tba previous ueetloa waa thea ordered,
hut Mr. RU-hardsoa thereupon offered a
motion ta recommit the rula with Instruc
tions to report It baak amended, ao as to
open the bill for amendment under the flve
mlnute rule. Mr. Dalsell Immediately. made
tha aolat that tha snotlea waa dilatory,
Speaker Henderson and Mr. Richardson had
a sharp exchange aver the point of order.
which tha apeaker austalaed.
The speaker said a similar ruling had
been made by Speaker Reed in the Fifty-
first congress, also by Speaker Crisp and
during the last congress, by himself.
"But subsequent- to Speaker Crisp a rui
ing. Speaker Reed reversed the ruling,"
said Mr. Richardson.
I sustained the ruling ot Speaker Crisp,
returned Speaker Henderson, smiling.
Mr. Richardson thersupon appealed from
tha decision of the chair and tha spesker
declined to hear argument on the appeal
because tbe previous question already had
Mr. Daltell moved to lay the appeal upon
Thla motion was carried, 1(5 to 123.
Mr. Calderhead, (republican of Kanaaa),
voted with the democrats against tha mo
tion to lay the appeal upon the table, hut
there was no break on either side on the
subsequent adoption of the ' rule itself,
which was carried, 1S8 to 120.
Richardson Spring Sorarlse.
Upon the announcement of the vote Mr.
Richardson, the minority leader, sprang a
surprise. Rising In his seat ha said: Mr.
Speaker,- I rise to make a request for
unanimous consent. In view of the fsct
that ws are not permitted to amend the
ponding hill and In view of the tact that
tha two days' debste la absolutely Impos
sible under the rule, I ask that the bill he
put on Its passage now. (Applause oa
Members looked at each other In amass
ment. Only , a few of tha democrat had
knowledge of tba contemplated coup, and
Dona ot the ; republicans had wind of It.
Tba speaker put the request and raised his
"Ia there objection?" he asked. He waited
a moment. Not a sound waa heard.
"Tha chair hears none," said tba apeaker.
aa be brought his gavel down with a
whack. , Then spontaneously from both
Ides tha applause rang out. At one mo

The bill wa paeeed unanimously, 178

The announcement of the result was ap
plauded on both sides.
At 1:60 p. m. the house adjourned.
