During- the count it was dis- vvered that Dallas county had return- I i.OW) votes more- for' Ferguson; the jmocratic candidate for lieutonar.t- avernor than he had actually received. he board simply miide a mistake in ntering the vote on the" returning lank, giving him 1.S1S votes instead or 15. The totals plainly showed this. 'ollowins is- the unofficial and official was willing to support the substitute if i this provision wns included. Senator Hubbard objected to this declaring that 'it would unnecessary delay, enator took the same ground as Senator i, that Senator '-Emmcri allowed to make a showing. Setiat'A -ambert asked that the resolu- over, but the chair would not .t, since it was a. substitute for the jffercd yesterday. Tho chair sus- ,ed tlsat the substitute might be johded. Senator Bull declared that ho .iid no desire to cause any delay; that his only Idea was to give Senator Kra- mert u to make a, showing. The rt-adlnjj of tho Hubbard substitute again brought out an amendment by Sen- ator Trcwin, inserting the words, "in- cluding the answer or other pleadings of the in the provision for lilins papers with the special com- mittee on contest.

A large amount jV of time was consumed in a discussion as to whether the assembly could ad- journ for the four days intervening when the statutes provide that HO re- cess of more than three days can le taken. It was the sense of the chair and several members that Sunday would not be counted as a legislative day, iind therefore the recess would nut 01" three days' Saturday and Monday- An effort was made by Senator Garst to change the day ot adjournment to Friday in order to be sure that the re- cess would be regular. It was found that it was too late to do this, and the matter was dropped, leavinir the resolution as.originally adopted, with the change in the hour. Senator Junkin offered a resolution.
