Tiomi son of Moved to take from the table the Resolution in relation to the Public printers Laid on the table yesterday. Or. Thompson said the main reason for calling up this Resolution was a remark made yesterday that no fault had Brien found with the present printers in their of tibial capacity. Since then he had Learned fro the proper officers that the cause of the House not receiving the reports of the treasurer auditor amp a. Was the inability of the Public printers to print them. The Resolution was taken up by the casting vote of the speaker. Or. Cooper then replied to the gentleman from Fayette or. Thompson to stated that the Law required certain officers to have their reports printed before the meeting of the legislature. He had it from one of the printers that those reports had not been handed to him until after the meeting of the legislature. The Resolution was not an inquiry into their conduct As printers but As to who Are the rightful printers and whether one legislature had a right to elect a Printer to a succeeding one. The House had on a former time consumed much time on a subject of this nature and had ousted one Printer and put in another. The consequence was that it Iliad been carried into court that the judge had decided that it was a contract. Existing Between the stale and the Printer and for its violation had awarded to the party suffering ,$800 in damages. Or. Hannigan called for the previous question on the ground that it was Only a matter of inquiry and when the report should be made the whole matter of course would be fully discussed. He saw no necessity for discussing it now. The Call for the previous question was not seconded. Or. Marshall was opposed to the Resolution. It had been decided by the court that one legislature could elect a Printer for a subsequent one. He did not see any necessity for agitating the subject again. Or. Thompson of f., replied to the gentleman from Henry or. Cooper he had heard one of the gentlemen employed in the auditor s office censure the printers who were of the same politics for a dereliction of duty. Or. Robinson of c., offered an amendment to inquire into the manner in which the printing had been done which was adopted. Or. Dunbar contended that the Printer was Ane Pessary officer of the House he cared not what critics might say. At the election last Winter soveral members asked to be excused from voting on the ground that they had no right to elect a Printer for another legislature. He was in favor of the Resolution. Or. Harding was opposed to the Resolution. He thought the reports were All printed and Only wanted stitching to be ready for delivery. Or. Blon Gomery offered an acne dment Quot that a committee of five be appointed to ascertain the reasons Why All the officers of state have not made their annual reports to this House and also to inquire if the Public printers Are faithfully discharging their duties and report the facts to the or. Henley was in favor of the Resolution. He allowed that the present printers were executing their work with As much facility and promptitude As any others could do but he wanted to know whether the House had a Printer. One of the gentlemen elected was now to believed in China or preparing to go on a missionary expedition. The other was on the ground and a High minded and honorable gentleman he was too and he would As soon he should be the p j. C Prii incr a . he wanted to inquire whether the House had a Printer. Or. H. Alluded to several precedents of a like nature in the Indiana legislature. Or. Hackleman in a few forcible , opposed the adoption of the Resolution. Or. Lawrence had rights on the floor and he hoped that his democratic friends would Aid him in sustaining them. He a anted to vote for his own Printer. Or. Stratton offered the following Ainerd tent of the Aine dment Quot to inquire into the expediency of repealing the act under which said stale printers were or. Dunbar replied to Iho gentleman from Rush or. Hackleman in. Foley said his constituents looked to these for Economy. He was in favor of the amendments. Or. Norvell advocated the original Resolution. He Ali ought the House had the same right to Clell clerks amp a. For a succeeding House As it had to Electa Printer for a subsequent House. The Printer was an officer of the Houe. Or. Bradley thought gentlemen were Labouring under a mistake in calling the a Lublic Printer an Mincer of the House. By Lav. He was an officer of the state As he was required to print for the Senate As Well As this House. Thoy Hul just As much right to Secretary of As they had to remove the Printer and no More. The Arguinena of the gentleman from Clark or. Henley that of the Public printers was in China was not sound. One of those gentlemen representing the firm was Here and attending to his duty. He was in Fauvor of inquiring into the manner of the execution of the printing but no More. I in. Gorman advocated the adoption of the original Resolution. He was opposed to the principle of one Houe binding a subsequent one. If it were Correct to Clell a Printer for Oliree years it was equally Correct to elect one for ninety nine years. He was not influx ii by parly in this Mailer. He did not wish Tojiu Inlo thai Vilice a political Friend of his or. fall replied to the gentleman from Slon Roe or. Gorman and argued from the decision of judge \ Orrison a political Friend of gentlemen in Lavor of the that the Printer was a Cen tractor. Much of the labor of the Public Printer was necessarily done during the recess of the legislature consequently he could not be an officer of the House or Ogi Surau a. Or. Henly was in favor of the rights of labourers and mechanics. As partisans and sometimes As demagogues both parties had been clamorous in the defence of Liose rights. It might be upon o.\amination, that one of the individuals engaged in the Public printing was not a Printer. He was opposed to electing men to a place who were not qualified to exc Cut its mechanical dutie.-, if any were to to executed. Let the House inquire into the matter and if we have no Printer let us elect a Mechanic who is capable of Dis charging who duties of the office himself. Mechanics Are honest. Or. Ritchey at the election last Winter refused to vote on t to ground that the Senate had no right to Aid in choosing a Printer to the House and thai common delicacy und Courtesy forbid that they should elect i Printer for a subsequent House. He did nol look upon the question As being settled As contended by the gentleman from Jeff Erson. The judge of this circuit May have decided it but that decision did nol govern him. He was sworn to support the Stilu lion of the l filed Sla is and of this state and headed on the principle of the great Jackson to support the Constitution As he understood it. Or. Chapman of 11. Advocated the original Resoluti n. Or. Clark contended that the Public printers were elected in accordance with the provisions of a statue to serve for three years and that Lime had not yet expired. The election of Printer in Congress was not similar to the election of one Here. Congress had never passed a general Law on the subject. Thore the Printer was elected by Resolution of each House. Here he was chosen under the provisions of a statute. It was entirely unnecessary to spend time and Public Moi by in discussing this subject. Members were bound to recognize and abide tie Laws of the state. A circuit court had decided its then Why wast time in considering the matter he hoped the amendment to the amendment would be rejected and the amendment adopted. Or. Chipman of advocated the original Resolution. The subject was further discussed by messes. Dunbar Shoop and Davis of f., or. Davis of f., thought too much time had already been wasted in discussing this matter. The whole matter simply resolved itself into this question Hud the last legislature the constitutional right to pass a Law to elect a Public Printer to the state and under which Dowling amp Cole were elected he presumed that no one would seriously deny that right any More than he would deny the right to that legislature to pass a Law providing for the election of county treasurers and auditors. He hoped therefore the question would be settled at once. He was opposed to wasting further time. Or. Reed of Henry should vote against the Resolution. He did not take a seat on that floor to represent any particular party. He represented his constituents All parties. He did not want to see any thing Dene that would interrupt the Good feeling that pervaded the members. He was afraid that the adoption of the Resolution would tend to destroy that feeling.
