Since the adoption of the Reed rules the re publicans have allowed but scant time for the dis cussion of important questions. They often bring up a proposition, rush it through the committee at break-neck speed, adopt a rule allowing a few hours for delate and dispose of it before the peo ple at large know what is going on. When the Reed rules were adopted they were defended on the ground that they were intended to cut off fili bustering, but they are now used to prevent the de liberation necessary to intelligent action. While the democrats are powerless to secure sufficient time for debate so long as the republicans are disposed to deny their request they ought to register a protest every time an attempt is made to summarily dispose of important measures. The democrats have a right to demand a roll call and on roll call they ...
