that the deadlock would last two Whether this is the amount of democratic stubbornness in oek or not cannot be deteamined until letime Chairman Dunn and Secretary of the democratic state central are on the ground and are very careful that demo Brats are te their seats and that they do ot show any disposition to change the resent strained condition of bwever an impression is gaining ground that before long a spirit of restlessness will sweep over their ranks and some thing BADLOCKa ABB lp Matter OoiietponHnpoe of TBB DBS week ago anyone should have suggested to a senator the idea that any member of that onorable body would participate in a the idea would have been reatod with derision and contempt yet n the first opportunity when the digni ed senators have entered into any meet ig where there really could be a con the first thing done was to tie mat ers up with as arm a knot as ever the louse is Of course a triangular ght is one te which the chances are tat it wfll be for not a single one of the trio will Each has topes that the supporters of some one of the other two will become weary and come over to thus bringing victory to perch upon his but it is too ften the case that they all hang and ten all that can be done is to stop vot ng and get to work on the out But the senators are most astonished at the way things were ait night They came here expecting tat the nominations would be settled te bout a half hour or and then so much would be It had been expected tare would be a little time spent upon the Fort MadieoB but if anyone had suggested thirteen ballots and then no the suggestion would ot have received very favorable recog But it seemed fated to turn out The forces of the three mate candidates held fast and not one of them could gate the necessary votes for aa Heart neks seem to have become quite in Iowa within the have been more of them ever heard of Begin the iBfMbBcan state cnmn rhete tsmtytve ballots were re a aeries of It winbeneasaaberedthat Senator Wool reoarved nomination only after s ana been waa named and other ottanee down to the attempt Tie gained in any The honorable sen ators said they knew of no such they had received no information of its convening and could not in any manner consider anything pertaining So far as the knowledge there expressed was there was no probably would be none there was no to the of a house and hence it had no embryotic or But yes terday a great change came over the men of the men who coujd know nothing except under certain d The matter of arranging for pay was mentioned and an amount of knowledge was spontaneously It is te order for any pay to be for the presiding officer of each body to certify to a list of the memben and of the whole and u the home it temporar ily the members of both houses think it about time to make up the pay Nothing can be drawn until thirty days after the con vening of the the matter was mentioned te the senate aad at once one of the memben thereof said in order to arrange matters it would be better to have the t wo houses te seseici at the same It was asked what lour would be the proper u the house had fixed its time already for Then thesesenafctt who knew nothing of there being such a thing as a house of representatives of the twentythird general very readily gave the information that the house had adjourned till and in consequence the senatorial session was fixed for the same It is rather iuteresting to notice while the parliamentary question of what con stitutes a quorum has been agitating the national house of representative a de cision directly contrary to that of Speaker Reed was made by Lieutenant Governor Hull The matter came up on an amendment by Dodge to a resolution introduced by The amendment was not of great nor was the for that and the senators took no great interest te the On the first taken viva the chair was unable to decide and a division was called On the sen ators rising to be counted there were nine way and eleven the rhe chair promptly said no quorum was iresent and no further business could be On a motion to rith no more members really but all of them the vote was more than twentyfive and as the motion to adjourn was lost the chair said a quorum was now present and the ques ion to be considered was the amend ment by the senator from Des lieutenant Governor of mew there were then twentyfive pres but he was guided te making his ruling solely by the number which is rather different from Speaker Reeds But there isadiffer nce of affairs apparently between con gress and our Here it re uires a majority of all the members elected in each house to pass a while te congress it requires only a ma otity of those voting to pass a and if course nothing can be done unless a uorum is consisting of a ma ority of all the members You ee thus in congress it is much easier to et a bill then in he legislature of the for if there are five votes for a bill and only one against in the house consisting of one members the bill will be de But Hull and Reed differ ma crially as to ascertaining if a uorum is He will stick to the enerally understood method that a member cannot be considered present nlesB he manifests his presence by some egialative such aa While teed claims it to be within the power of he presiding officer te decide members if ha sees them on the floor or at heir and cau thus fill out a quo urn though less than half the number of memben elected are Only one thing ia done te the morning arty caucuss now and that is to have he roll called in order to see that all members are present and reports may be aceived from the sick memben te order hat the pairs may be There s no formulating of nothing new be so the meetings are of aort duration and are a mere

personally demanding his vote for for United States rose to a question of order and sked if it was the proper thing for members to introduce petitions addressed o them personally and not to the The ruling of the chair was that the sen tors themselves should judge of the ropriety of action and they could do as they Gatch said he had re eived a petition of a nature similar to the one but had regarded it as private correspondence and hense had ot presented Mesewey said about he This monteg the Leader ac used these two senators of suppressing so in open session Gatch read IB correspondence he had received on IB and it was shown plainly that be had received no instructions or request to present the matter to the sen te and as a consequence he had not anded it He also said that any peti on presented by any constituent or any ubiect or for any purpose consistent with le dignity of the senate and common ecency would be presented by ven if it requested the expulsion of him self from the Mesewey made similar statements and said further that o long as he received petitions addressed o him personally he would not present tern to the but would regard hem as private correspondence and did
