attendance with their majority in creased Ijy the arrival of the two from Idalio Then will come the tug ot war Senator Edmunds in an interview on this subject says The constitution provides and every constitution of a gov ernment that is to be carried on must so provide that the majority any legisla tive body has to do its business It neces sarily implies that no minority whether of one or any other number should or could unduly obstruct the of the will oE the majoritj It is not a ques tion of whether a particular measure should bis passed or defeated but it is a question whether the majority of a legis lative body can have the power to come to the disposition of any subject that is be fore it than otherwise at the will of a mk nority composed of one or more Two Kinds of Liberty In times of extreme public danger every lover oE his country wouldfegree a traitorous minority should not have ihe could uot if there be anything in the power of indefinitely delay action which the emergency might require ti be had as has sometimes hap pened The liberty to debate ought to be continuously maintained but liberty of debute is one thing and liberty of obstruc tion arirl prerentingalegislatiyebody com ing to anjr resolution whatever upon the subject before it is quite another nftlio Proposed Rule The rule proposed is not a rule to com pel particular determination of any ques tion It is a rule to provide that after ulmt the majority considers to be reason able Liniiversal debate that whatever may be its opinion in respect of the disposition to be made of the measure be enabled to dispose of it one way or the other saving to every member of the body the right to express his own opinion upon it within a given time How any man of any party can find fault with such a provisiou I am unable to under stand Common Parliamentary Quoted The common parliamentary law has al ways been that No man is to speak im pertinenMy or beside the question su perflously or tediously This common rule of parliamentary law is based upon the considerations 1 first mentioned that a parliamentary body must be able to act to act in a particular way but to act oue way or the other in spite of the deter mination of any minority of its members that it shall not act at all Jike the Idea I have always been and am still op pcsed to any such thing as a previous question as it has been within recent years is a previous question which instantly terminates discussion or if any time be given puts the power of giving members of a legislative body a right to speak at all into the hands of the managing member of a committee or of a presiding officer The proposed rula pre cludes such a possibility 1 think with a senate of more than eighty members that if such a rule had been proposed when no serious question were pending or foreseen as immediate it would have received al most unanimous approval As to What the People Will Think In ansvrer to the question whether he be lieved tin country would sustain the Repub licans in passing such a rule overturning the precedents of the senate for the sake of passing an elections bill Senator Ed munds replied I have to say in the first place that what the couutry with the in formation that it gets from partisan news papers ol all kinds may think in respect to the propriety of such a rule is entirely immaterial to me in the sense of affecting my conduct in doing what I think is my duty in the promotion of the general pub lic interest lam sure that the country when it understands the precise scope and force of Siuch a rule that rneaus that the representatives of the country have the power to do what the country thinks ought to be done one way or the other after every member of the minority shall have had the
