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 rdered. 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. - Secret Service Detective Gets a Smooth Forger After successfully evading some of the best detectives In the west tor nearly five months Drover K.
