The purpose of referring the bill to the commit teeon weights and measures was to prevent the house from voting on the question of concurrence in the senate The rules which it was claimed were intended to allow the majority lo do business and produce results were now prostituted to the base purpose of gagging the majority of the tland held there was no other course open but to strike the
