Trenton Times, The (Newspaper) - February 18, 1890, Trenton, New Jersey VI IT. NO. TUESDAY AHvrMKNOON, FKBRUAKY 18 1890. TWO OKN'TO CHEERS FOR l.C.PLAll. l hey Closed the Cooper Union Fair Meeting. ME. PMTT MAKES A PROPOSITION Ho Docs Not Object to Mr. and tho Pro- posal U by Depcw, Miller Other Well Known Orators. NBW YORK, Fob 18 Cooper Union hag was densely crowded Imst night a hundreds of people were unable to gain ad- mission. The occasion of the throng was a mass meeting to protest against legislative delay in pAising the World's fair bill Among the prominent persons on the platform were Warner Miller, C M Depew, John H Ambrose Snow, Joooph C Hendrix, A M Twiney, James W Tappen and John Foord. Mr StJirin presided, and called upon Mr Foord, as socretn.y, to read a series of reso- lutions, which set forth that the original bill sent to Albany was drawu up by both Democrats and Republicans, that it was a purely business, non-partisan mwure de- signed for the benefit of all the people, that this non political character of the enterprise must be maintained or congress will not sanction the selection of New York as the site for the fair, that the communion named in the bill is non-partisan, that the commit- tees now in charge, which have been criti- cised as Democratic, cease to contiul the project after the commission takes charge, and that there Is no reason for dragging politics into the matter in any way The Resolutions Adopted. The resolutions were unanimously adopt- ed and the audience gave three cheers. Mr .Root then read a letter Evarts, sjxigatbizmg with theJftie objects of the E-l-ard Cgnlrfin read reso- lutions adopted at a meeSriSg of the Central Lubor union in accord with the ej-prcsood in the foregoing resolution Hon. Warner Miller Speaks. Hon. Warner Miller then made a speech laying he had thought for thii ty yean that ha was a Republican, but had suddenly fonnd that he was regarded by some as a Tammany Democrat because he was la favor of tho World's fair bill He fonni consolation in the fact that he had boon read out of the parly in good that of C M Depew, Elihu Hoot, C H Bllfi, V R Cruger and others. (Ap- plause f Mr Miller went on to deplore the of partisanship that had boon raised agalnut the bill Mr Miller further said that the commlttoe on legislation was composed of sevantoen Repnblinann and eight Democrats, and the sub-commlttoe thereof, which drew up the bill, was composed of two Depew and Root and one Democrat, Mr Wihatlf! plot, Depew and Root were the traitors Mr. Depew Explains. Mr Depew also spoke, saying that if Columbus had known what trouble this was going to cause he never would have discovered America. (T aughter) Mr. Depew appreciated his peril in coming to the meeting without receiving perminajon from the new guardian of the Republican party of New Yoik state, Hon. W E. Chandler, of New Hampshire He want nn to aay that everybody in St and Chi- cago Democrats, Mugwumps, Anarchists and on thin one point of wanting the fair It was reserved for New Yorkers to leave Washington and call each other bad names at home. Every man is entitled to his opin- ion without being charged with party A veny eminent and able Republican leader, with his friends, thinks that a fair in New York in 1893, beoanm of the machinery of the city government being in the hands of the Democracy, would lead to a nnmber of the vast crowd of visitors illegitimately vot- ing in the presidential election. I, on the contrary, believe that the gieat prosyorllj which would follow all over the cotmtjj from the fair would redound to the credit of a national admrniitLratlOQ under whofO it WHO halll thA eomA tltA 187tt unquestionably did. Each of us Is en- titled to a fair consideration without cull Ing each other's throats. The "Two-thirds Tote" Amendment. Tn conclusion Mr Depew aaid "I have, after consultation with as many of the members of the committee as I could with, formulated a suggestion which I think solves the enigma. That suggestion with the approval of a majority of the leg- islative committee and is to by the mayor of the city. I laid it before Senator .Hiscock, and he said it seemed to him to meet all objections, but he wished to sw hfa friends before expressing his adhesion to it. My suggestion is briefly that the original bill before the legislature and the bill before congrws be amended so that no be lot, no Taeanoy in commlrmion n tor poration filled and no executive offiner ap- pointed except by a two-thirds vote of all the 103 commissioners. (Applause) This evening I received from Washington a giam in which Senator Hucock tayo: agrw heartily with your an amendment to the 'air bill It meets eveij- difficulty.' Eveij man with whom I have spoken agrees with me In iti entire acceptability to Republi- cans and Now let all, with- out regard to our parly lay our differences and come together upon lines upon which sensible men gg.jj unanimously, pan this bill at Albany, go, the Empire State should, to ton to claim a heritage which will benefit not only ourselves, but redound to the glw j of the republic and to the of the whole people of the nation."

Democrats Still Opposing the Speaker's Stand THE WORLD'S PAIR STAR 18 A ROW The Speaker Counted a Quorum in the Uaaal way, Which the Democrats Claimed Wag a Violation ol the New of the Senate. WAHHINGTON Feb 18 The house yester day spent almost all of the time until ad joumment In a warm-debate uveraruhngof Speaker Hoed After the reading of the journal Mr Carlisle arose and said that since Jan J9 the Democrats bad been pro- testing against the approval of the journal, on the ground that It contained au enli y made by dictation of the speaker, showing the names of members present and not voting Last Friday a code of rules was adopted w hich gave the speaker that right Against this they still protested and would continue to do so, as an unconstitutional practice But this question could not be de cided in this house, and whenever proper arose, it would go to some other forum, it could be finally and decisively panned upon He saw no reason why the journal should not be approved In the form which the house had a right to prescribe The journal was then approved llle World's Fair Start! a Dlicumiou Mr Candler then reported the resolution for the dlsoiiMion of the World s fair bills on Thursday and Friday and balloting on unless the house shall have deter- by a vote that the World s fair shall held Tellers were appointed and the 114 nays, 8 Mr ide the point of no quorum The speaker that members were lore than a quorum After fur- ther protests from the Democratic side, which the speaker calmly ignored he de- clared debate on the motion was m order Still Fighting Speaker Reed The Democrats strenuously resisted this decision Mr McMillan contended thatthere was no rule that permitted the speaker to count a quorum except during the progress of an yea and nay call Mr Dockery (Mo said that the rule cited by Mr McMillan did not seem to provide for aconntby the speaker at all, but only by tellers The speaker replied that the rule provided for the count of those who voted The had resulted 114 to 8 that seemed to be a majority There were 172 members present by actual count If members did not desire to vote the presumption was that they ac- quiesced in the result of the vote Mr Carlisle maintained that tho moment the tellers were ordered by- take their places, the power of the chair to count, except upon their report, ceased Tho very purpose of ordering tellers was to prevent the speaker from making a count, and put in the hands of gentlemen chosen oiie from one and one from the other side When their report was made to the chair that the vote was over, and if the tellers resumed their seats there was no remedy except to take it over The Advisability of a Fair Questioned. Mr Peters said that be had refused to becauwi he liitd u Ji some doubt as to whether there should be a world's fair at all (Applause on the Defno- oratic side But he was perfectly satisfied to remain in his seat and allow persons in- terested to settle the matter If the theory of the other side was right, he should have thus accomplished more than if he had unnatural result The trouble was that thiB house had boon wrapped round and round by the cords ef legal fiction until it was as lifeless as a mummy (Applause) The Speaker Defends His Position. The speaker aald the question was one like that repeatedly paexed upon by the house. Under the constitution a quorum was necos- saiy to tisnsact business Whether it was necessary for them to acfe was the question BlnceJthad boon decided-here it had boon rlisciiBsed from one end of ihe connu-y to the other, and precedents without number had been cited on each side In thin house the question was settled that if a majority was present to do business their presence was all that was required to make a quorum If they declined to vote their inaction could not be in the pathway of thooe who did their duty The idea that could be stronger than a negative rote ooemed to have bocn unknowu to our ancestors. It scorned to be a modern parlia- mentary fiction which had never boon able to stand the decision of a court. Urging Speedy Action.
