Representative Hvpbnra ol Iowa presided and was authorized Id name a committee of five with himself as chairman to draft the proposed amendments to the rules and report to the organization. Mr. Hepburn said the plans proposed for changing the rules would be considered by the committee he would name. He desired to make it known that all of the members Invited to the meeting with the exception of Representative Norrls of Nebraska, who Is out of town, were present. Those interested have been proceeding quietly with their plans with the apparent purpose of Increasing their numbers sufficiently to be able to con-' trol the situation by joining the Democrats In a fight on the rules. The "Insurgents" claim that in the present congress they need but'twenty-seven Republicans to join the Democrats In order to bring about a change in the rules which In the Olst Congress they say will need but twenty-four Republican members. Three of the representatives present tonight—Hepburn, Pollard and Ellis—will not be members of the next Congress. While several of the Insurgents are for Cannon for speaker, they marie It plain that they prratly desired a change in the rules. Hepburn said the general fopling was that, if nutredehhrdluhrdluhrdl was that if under the rules the house must have a despotic leader there was no one thpy would rather have than "tTncle Joe." Several new suggestions, in addition to those already advanced, were made at the meeting. To increase the membership of ttje rules committee of the house has been the most popular suggestion and it has been proposed to hare thls-committe elected by members of the house Instead of being named by the speaker. The election In a like manner o/ a committee on committees to perform duties similar to a like body In the senate also has been proposed by leaders in the movement. Another plan proposed Is to set two Thursdays apart each month for the consideration of bills oi) the house calendar and the remaining Thursdays for thp consideration of the measures on the union cal'Midnr. None of those present would state whether it was Intended to bring the matter to an issue in the present sea- Ion of Congress or to wait for the new Congress, Among those present were McKln- ioy and Hayes of California.
