WASHINGTON. Feb. a-(8peclal Tele
gram.) Against the strenuous protests of
Congressman Norrls of Nebraska, Lenroot
of Wisconsin and other leaders, the demo
crat majority of tin houve virtually re
pealed rule Z! today, which gives tbt
house the right to call bills back from
committees which bave reposed la said
committees for any considerable length
of time and consider the same as In com
mute of the whole. i
The virtual repeal of the rule gives
Speaker Clark as much power as Speaker
Cannon had In his palmy days aa to
recognition of Individuals to maka mo
tions and stop legislative proceed u re. -
Tha repeal of tha rule was fought most
vigorously, but tha "Velvet Boss," as Mrs.
Underwood has some to he 'called, held
his forces' Intact and' the riila was modi-
fled to suit exJtllng conditions.

of .tha democrats a a decided step bac k

The present operation of the rule to dis

' Republican trader Mann baa repeatedly
hinted to the democratic side that he
would show how tha new "reform rule"
was not workable.
"Gentlemen of the majority, you are on
the back track. cried Representative
Deltell f Pennsylvania, a republican In
opposing the "proposed democratic change
in rules. "Tout reforms are all ahama and
frauds. You have taken tha power away
from the speaker, but you put It all In
