WASHINGTON. Feb. 5.-The hous of
representatives today avoided coins on
record on presidential third terms. Just
at the moment when the Slsyden resolu
tion, aimed primarily at Colonol Roose-
ivelt. seemed about to pas, a shrewd par
liamentary turn displayed th measure
from further consideration. It may be
revived later In the session, but Its po
sition of vantage on the house calendar
was lost.
Mr. Slarden. a Texas democrat. Intro
duced the resolution a irek ago. It
sought to' express as the "opinion of the
house" that the example of Washington
In retiring after a second term, had by
universal concurrence become the time
honored custom of the country, violation
of which would be fraught with peril to
free Institutions The resolution was
called up today with but little warning,
and there was a quick matching of wits.
Suspension of the rules was required to
pass the measure, and to suspend the
rules "a second" had to bs considered as
Mr. Btms of Tennessee objected to the
"second," and a vote by tellers on order
ing this parliamentary move was neees
aary. The republicans, In hurried confer
ence, had determined not to Tote on the
resolution, thus putting the democrats In
the position of passing the measure by
a party vote, and In the opinion of a num
ber of them. Indicating fear of Mr. Roose
velt as the republican nominee,
Henca the bulk of the democrats decided
not to rote for the "second," and It was
defeated, M to 61. Four republicans cast
their voles for the second. Former Speaker
Cannon led the wsy and was followed by
Mr. McCall of Massachusetts, who had
planned to speak against ths third term
Idea; Mr. Bingham of Pennsylvania,
"father of the house"; ar-J Mr, Hlgglna
of Connecticut.
With the "second" defeated Mr. Blayden
was forced, amid a burst of applause, to
withdraw hla motlsn for suspension of
the rules. The reeoiatkm was returned
to ths committee on elections. -
