the speaker to count them as one or two saying they had not boon present whin their name was Crisp desired the appeal from the iecisioL of the chair The uproar con tinued some lime Finally the speaker said The must not mistake the Httuaion The chair must proceed in order and the gentleman as a member of this body will undoubtedly allow the chair to BO The speaker then proceeded to make a statement The he had an nounced the members voting 2 nays chair thereupon having heard thicr uames called in their onco had directed a record made of this Accordingly the question was be fore UIH house ana the chair proposed to give a statement accompanied by the ruling from which an appeal could be taken if any gentleman was dissatisfied The speaker said for some time a question of this na ture hud been raised in many parliamen tary assemblages and there hat baeu a groat deal of especially in this body on the The chair recollected a proposition of this kind made by Randolph Tucker of A proposition was made with regard to putting it in the The general opinion prevailed at that limfi it wan expedient to so That was in Since then there has been various argumttents and docisioua by eminent gentlemen and those de cisions had much cleared up the question and rendered it more apparent wnat the true rule wan One of the first places where the question was raised was in the New York state The present government of New York was the presiding officier and upon him devolved a duty similar to that which now devolved oa the Ue met that duty in precisely thu same manner The had arisen in New York on the constitutional necessity of having three fifths of the members constitute a quotum for the passage of certain bills and the presid ing officer held that the constitutional provision as to a quorum was entirely satisfied by the presence of members wen if they did rot That decision could not be regarded as There had also been a decision in the fennes see leglslaturp in A registration bill pending was objected to by the re publicans who refused to whereupon the speaker directed the clerk to count ae present those not voting and declared the bill passed on that These two decisions seamed to the present occupant of the chair to cover the ground but there was an entirely familiar process which every old member would recognize whereby the opinion of the chair is incontestable evidence of the recognition at all times of the right to record members present as constituting part of a It had been almost an everyday occurrence at certain stages the session for votes to be announced by the chair containing oviously and emphatically no Yet if the point was not made the bill was always declared passed and that couid only be a very distinct basis and that was that everybody present silently agreed to the fact there was a There was no ground on which such a bill could be passed consti tutionally unless the presence of the quorum was and it was inferred trorn the fact that no one raised the it htd always been the prac tice in parliamentary bodies and in the parliament of Great Britain for the speaker to determine the question if there or was not a quorum present by Again there was a provision in the constitution which declared the house might establish for com pelling the attendance of If members could be present and refuse to exercise their and yet not be count d as a quo1 that provision would aeem to be entirely The speaker thenI read at length Governor Hills decision when presiding officer of the New York and laughter and applause by the republicans greeted the reading of the where the action of Hie minority denounced ac rebellions The speaker ignored request to have protest wtimft Sfcat dniaum elio xead Hie chair therefore roles qnorom present within the appeal on the motion not open to and Criip pro tested against Paysons Butterworth asked that Peyton withdraw his motion and the latter did Crisp then said the detirion of the speaker was overturning the united and uninterrupted practice of one hundred years ana goingidirectly in the face of arguments of distinguished This was more than a mere it was a constitutional right to have the yeas and nays entered and it necetsariiy followed that when the con stitution said yeas and should be entered they could not be added to or taken He quoted from Speaker Elaines ruling on the Force bfll to the effect the speaker had not the power to count a quorum and declared the de cision just made by Reed would he the foundation of the greatest legislative frauds ever The house was invited here to pursue the course which Elaine had declared Mr Crisp quoted Garfield as denounc ing a similar rale proposed in his time and How do we know but that Lhe speaker may tee for his own pur pose forty members more than there are in the Vouse Outhwaite here declared he had been counted by the speaker while he WES not on the Great confusion ensued for a few min utes when Crisp continued We have lived through the great civil war when there was excitement unparalleled in the history of yet during all those years no no ever thought it necessary to in troduce a rule which would give the power of dedaring the presence of mem bers by a single voice of one In common with every member on his side demanded there should be a public exhibition of the question that there should be He quoted from re marks of Heed himself in a debate in which Reed said The constitutional idea of a quorum is not the physical presence of majority of members of the house but a majority of members present and participating in the busi on the dem ocratic and ia the Referring to the New York decision of Governor Springer said that action had been denounced by the democrats cf the New York legislature as revolution Crisp proceeding to read the press report of the last republican caucus imt WHS cHiled to order by Kerr and the objection was sustained by the Crisp went on to appeal to the republi can bide to before they indorse this aad unconstitutional Cannon said the gentleman on the other tide should consult the constitu after in the constitution they had a mode cf ascertaining what a quorum And if by the constitution ineie was a quorum present today the would euslain the house of rep resent alivea in going on and The constitution provides Each house be the judge of election returns and the qualifications of its own mem ano u majority of each house shall constitute a quorum to do Did the constitution say a major ity should bs required to vote for a meat lire in order to pass it Not nl Il merely eaid a majority of each house should constitute a quorom to di In conclusion Cannon laid down the proprosition that bv gen eral parliamentary law and under the coneitution when a quorum is present and that is ascertained and when htre is a majority voting in favor of the that measure is adopted whether it be a resolution or Carlisle said no spanker ever sat in the chair and undertook to hold that lees than a quorum can pass any bill or vote in thip house until All have held tha E majority must not only be present to constitute a quorum but that a quorcm must participate in He quoted from constitutional sections und eaid when tic framers of the constitution provided that a majority of memberselect should constitute a quorum to do business they raw mat if it stopped there less than a quorum could do Therefore they had provided that less than a quo rum ciuld do certain from day to compel the attendance of absent etc If the ruling rnnde this morning was there was no necessity for any provision in the ciCRtitution defining what less than a majority could He denied absolutely the right of the presiding officer of the house to make a Suppose the speaker was then one man could pass a bill as well an one hundred and The speaker was simply the organ of the not its He Carlisle was not here to deal in epithets out he did fay if this ruling stood it worked a complete
