is surprising that the in lependents support him under any cir He has very plainly ex pressed frimimlf on that subject in the ipeech given The following speech made by in spite of Lehman was to fuse with the Nothing new was proposed at the opening of todays Interest was lively after the pairs were but it kept np only until of Powe voted for Lehman the same as be and then the roll call became the

was going on the members simply began to read answer corre spondence and otherwise amuse them This continued without change until after the when Blythe arose and stated the reasons why the republi can refused to accept the propo sition made by the democrats on Mon as follows the temporary organiza tion of the house is as re quired by we cannot legally or properly eater into any com promise or arrangement relating to the permanent the reason that the prop osition referred to emanates from and represents a minority of the gentlemen composing this are three political par ties claiming representatives upon ibis The republican members of this body are without question ttfty in ber the democrats axe certainly a and the union labor party has its representative We deny the right or the authority of the gentleman from Iowa county to speak here or offer terms on behalf of acy organization other than democratic which is in the certain vital questions hereafter to be dealt with by the twenty third general assembly when permanent ly particularly the prohibi tion principles are involved which the republicans believe will be sustained by a majority of said house of profit greatly by They rared nothing for the private opinion of Hotchkins for they know him to be but through him they got just what they waated from the It was pitiful to see the gentleman from Davis county appealing to his side to sustain him aad see the democratic hosts stick firmly to their Having gained this the republicans know just what to do and will stick as firmly as ever by their determination not to give up a pnint in The fight from now on will be warmer than The senate session thia afternoon had a very interesting A number of the senators had bills thev desired to in troduce and when that order was called upon they began rushing them in at a great Gatch was greatly opposed to Kelly introduced the resolution to cut off further introduction of bills and Gatch at once spoke in support of it He said that it was a proper thing for the senate to go ahead and transact any business which rent action of other branch of was not yet so the general as sembly waa not yet really in Dungan in opposition said he was of the same opinion as Gatch yesterday after noon when the question was but but having looked the matter up he was perfectly satisfied the senate could go as far as it had gone with any and more bills could be carried along to the same Senators Seeds and Finn also argued in favor of rejecting the Woolson said that as there was not statutory or constitu tional limitation to

orting him for temporary clerk UK LEHMANS Mr I now move the adop ion of the first resolution offered to The discussion of this resolution brings up for debate the entire question before this convention It is whether democratic party after eighteen long years of patient after eighteen rears of courageous in the ace of repeated shall now in the lour of its triumph abandon all the con victions for which it fought and which sustained it through all its and adopt the wild fancies and vagaries of a new born and ephemeral party that must pass away as the The traditions and principles of the demo cratic party pledge to a stable system of currency placed upon a basis beyond the control and direction alike of finan cial speculators and political and now it is proposed that these tradi tions and principles be abandoned and the party committed to the visionary schemes and reckless of an organization composed in its leadership almost if not altogether of designing deserters from the democratic and republican par And what inducement is held out for this change Simply that of doubt ful If we must sacrifice our convictions let us sacrifice them not to a but to a If we must endorse whom we cannot approve let us endorse the republican whose election our endorsement will secure and not the greenback whose elec tion our endorsement will leave in Let us make sure of the price of our be political victo ries are not won by the course you seem disposed to Anything to beat Grant did not beat Anything to beat Cummings will not beat Surrender your convictions to the se ductive whisperings of success and ou will add to the humiliation of the mortification of Time and again we have listened to the advice and followed the course urged upon us to We have approved of every politi cal heresy and coalesced with every polit ical sect that has arisen in our but our alliance with them has already proven a source of weakness representatives and which they can not agree to any compromise involving a surrender of principles in such manner as to forecast legislation on those topics at the dictation of a hostile As an additional reason Blythe stated that believed that there were certain representative dis tricts illegally constituted and as with this he could throw out the representatives from these This matter was settled in the twenty second general Besides Leh man is a retained attorney in the contest case against Representative The scene during this statement was interest The house was very All the lawyers gathered around the edge of the line of desks and listened Blythe in conclusion stated that if democrats got possession of the chair they would rule out republican Holbrook of said the democrats had submitted a proposition sustained by half the members of the Blythe asked if there were fifty democrats in the Holbrook re plied as before that their proposition represented fifty that some mem bers were not straight but had been elected by democrats and pro posed to stand firm by any democratic As for the election of Leh tee charges made against him were a The democrats had repeat edly offered to withdraw on condition that the republicans would vote for Hotchkiss for temporary speak The democrats are ready for that move at any The republicans can have their clerk unanimously if one vote will be given for the democratic candidate for The democrats had not considered the repre sentative district and this was not the time to considertne Now the democrats were willing to enter into any arrangement for the settlement of the temporary They were DES In the house the roll call for temporary clerk was taken Thia time 86 were Ewart independent still voting with the democrats and making the tie still Up to when three ballots had been there was no change After the fourth roll call a lively scene took Blythe rose to state the rea sons why the republicans would not ac cept the democratic He said that the republicans had decided in caucus that it would not do to let Leh monn have the as he was a prob able candidate for United States sena He believed a number of dis tricts were unconstitutionally made and in this position might exclude mem bers from their He spoke in sup port of his saying that the democrats had not a dear majority in the nor even fifty straight of said the pro position had the supyort of fifty mem bers while all were not straight they had been nominated and elected br and proposed to stay right there and press their of say ing the democrats rightfully demanded the gpeakership because the majority of the voters were with them and would sustain their Chase spoke in saying that the republicans had a majority on many of the questions and especially on and proposed to stand to spoke
