SPEAK Kit KEKD WAS SUSTAINED. Mr. of Texiui, Compares Him With the Very Warm Time Over Mr. Bluid'B Appeal from the Drrlnlon of the Chair. WASHINGTON, Jan. house spent a greater part of the day debuting a decision of the speaker, which was flually sustained. JUondffy Mr. Bland, ot Missouri, moveil tfiST the house Adjourn, and on a divisioa the speaker declared the motion lost. Mr. Bland thereupon demanded tellers, according to The Record the speaker replied: "There is no provision for tellers." No record of this appearing in the journal Mr. Bland moved to have the journal amended accord- ingly. The speaker stated that he was in- formed Mint such details were not inserted fa the journal. Mr. Blend's motion to ad- journ was submitted, and on a division the motion was declared lost by a vote of 88 to 95. Mr. Bland demanded tellers, Thespenfrer Inquired of Mr. Blind whether he had dis- covered any ground why tellers should be appointed. Mr. Bland said bis demand was made under the general practice of the house. The speaker declined to entertain the for tellers. Mr. Bland appealed from the decision of the chair. The Speaker Called a Oar. Mr. Mills, of Term, said that a vote by tellers was as much a part of the parliament- ary law as a motion to adjourn. It was tbe only vote by which the house could correct a decision ol the speaker, and if thehnuse did not have a right to this vote the speaker became a Mr. Cannon he knew of no rule authorizing tellers. A demand for ayes and nays was a constitutional right, but a demand for tellers was not Mr. Bayue, of Pennsylvania, upheld the decision of the chair, Mr. Breefcenridge, of ArJrnnws, said under the ruling the house would be at the moray of the speaker. Mr. McMillan, of Tennessee, that present occupant of tbe chair had held that the right existed to have tellers to determine whether the speaker was accurate in his count. On a previous occasion Mr. Bland had demanded tellers and the speaker had appointed them. Why should the house have one code of rules'one day and another code another? Ine of the Minority. Mr. Blount, of Georgia, said he would uphold the rights of the minority, and that who would trample off these rights must take the responsibility. The debate was continued by Messrs. Gear of Iowa, Crisp of Georgia, Perking of Kansas, Cutch- eonof Michigan and Carlisle of Kentucky. Mr. Carlisle held that the parliamentary law ought to be construed in relation to its modifications by the rules of former con- gresses. It had been held from time im- memorial in English speaking legislative assemblies that no presiding officer con il make an absolute, final decision to bind the body over which he presided. Speaker Reed Defends Himself. In submitting the question the speaker stated thnt he could not see how the rules of the last house the present house indirectly. The fact that they had bocn made as rules showed clearly the neces- sity of special enactment. The United StatM, he-.id, in filled wllh ymnlle Unusu- ally devoted to public meetings, these mAetings were governed by principles which bad boen acted upon until they had become well defined parliamentary usage. That there was no arbitrary control of the house by tho chair by the fact that at the moment an appeal from the decision the chair was pending. The chair bad iv objection to ordering tellers, but it was not a question of personal preference; it was a question of right As to the possibi lity of the speaker making a fals count which the tellers could rectify, a of the last house provided that one-fifth of a quorum must demand tcUcfn count that one-fifth. Ultimately, therefore, the speaker was the counting officer. The Appeal Tabled. Mr. Cannon, of Illinois, moved to lay the appeal on the table. Mr. Mills, of Texas raised the point of order that parliamentary niwge recognized no such motion. The point wnsoveiiiiled and Mr. Cannon's mo- tion was agreed to: Tegs, 149; nays, 1% Mr. Blond's motion to unwind the journal was then lost: Veas, 180; nays, Ha The journal wag then approval.
