BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA, SENATE RULES AREDEFENDED BY CHIEFTAIN Moses Hits Back at Dawes in Address Delivered in New York ACT AS SAFEGUARDS Declares Unlimited Debate Prevents Hasty Legislation by Blocs iyracuse, N.

Calling attention that the coalitions differed from day to day as new legislation tn cure the ills existing in different sections are ad vanced the president pro tempore of the senate said the majorities thus momentarily welded together, re bound to be us reckless as they ephemeral." Senator Moses said it was axic tic that the majority had the right to rule, nut tie declureu that maji ities differed from day to day. "The majority in the senate,' suid. "is no longer partisan or ev political. In point of fact, except through artificial means, strict party division is rarely to be had now-a das at cither end of the cap'tol, and the engrossing question nowdaya are those of economic import affect ing the material interests of sectional groups of states." Detailing his own experiences ir the senate. Senator Moses said h( could not feel that the rules worked more than a fancied hardship. He added that he could not believe that even more seasoned legislators than himself could freely contemplate a movement to change them. "It it to be observed," he said, "that with few exceptions the de mand for a change in the rules of the senate arises from those whose contact with1 the senate is either brief or non-oxistent. Many a has come into the senate with termination to tame it, and almost without exception these men themselves have been tamed by the sen ate and have come to realize the true value of the senate rules. Senator Moses declared that litni lation of debate already exists i the senate through unanimous con sent arrangements frequently resort ed to after full and. free discussion He also called attention to the rule which enables sixteen senators to force a vote without debate on the question of limiting debate on an sabject to one hour for each senator. Only a majority vote is necessary to enforce such limitation, he said, A remedy for everything complain-cd of in senate Senator Moses went on. is offered in the Norris constitutional amendment which would gress and prevent legislation b "lame ducks" by moving up the meeting time of a newly elected congress from the March after the election to January. "I have not observed," he said, "that any of those now so busily en gaged in defaming the senate hae shown any willingness to endorse Senator Norris' proposal. It may bo that they are as ignorant of it a--they are of the actual effect of th-rules of the senate. "Yet, in this impatient age it is sorely not too much to ask that there may still remain in this countr y still be found. If in the ideas o! the founding fathers, as presided Harding liked to refer to them, there still remains merit in their conception of a Republic with representative Institutions, surely it is worthwhile to retain one place where that conception may be sustained. "Bat if we have discarded th' principles of that earlier era and arr to live henceforward under hybrid institutions, resulting from the skill of the Luther Borbank of poiltii ir engrafting scions of democracy upor the stem of the Republic, then we might as well give ear to the damoi whfeh has recently bn tt up."'
