Mr. VEIlt nnderstord the Auditor and
Treasurer have 833amed tbe responsibility
of to Joing now, cud that this bill would
take every single dollar out of thb State
House Comiuisvcnera' hands. There 13 a
diecnte;row betwe?n these Commissionera
and the Auditor. As to tho merits of tais
I den't know nho is right, but the Commis
sioners find themselves out of fund?, when
tbey ihould have unexpended some J.'JOO.OOO.
I don't think this bill ia nesesssry.
Mr. OVEKSTREEr: It occum to me
this ia a very dangerous bill to pa?s. This
bill m?ght leave the State House Commis
sioners without a dollar. It does seem to me
there ia no nccetsitv fer it.
Mr. FOWLER: 'When this bill wai first

Mr. MAG EE: I think the railroid devel
oprcent of the State has brought about grcnt
tecec;al results, but there are thirteen
lines running through, tke north part of the
fctate into Chicago, where not half of them
are ceded. The nece?sities for the present
Uw have ceaed. Capital is abundant, and if
tbe people can be aseur6d that bv investing
their money it will brms a fair return, there
will be no trouble about getting such im
prcTercents made. The law can now be re
pealed without iajury. I urn in favor of
protecting the interest of the taxpayer in
this particular. It Is a question ot some im
portance. I have heard of no good reason
whv th law should cot be repealed.
Mr. CAMPBELL, of Hendricks: I have
decided to Tote against the repeal of this

Mr. FOULKE'S joint rrsolutlon S. 11 ! for
an amendment to Art. - S?c.- by stricing
therefrom the word "male," being read
Mr. FOULKE: I desire the question as to
whether n wo-.r.au shall ha entitled to vote,
ehall go before the people of the State with
the oiher Ktuendrr.ents to the Constitution
that are to be submitted for their ratifica
tion cr rt jecttoa. 1 ask eny man to stateanv
gcod reajon why the right of sutfrage should
rot he conferred cn women if they want it.
That is an inherent right which God has
pven to woman ei well aa to man. There is
only one bar remaining the bsr of sex.
What riuht have we to draw a line which
shall include us and leave women out?
Every cleas is best qualified to take care of
its own rights. It is an unjn3t government
which impcfs taxation without representa
tion. There ought to be nothing the boy can
BT.ire fo but that the girl al?3 ought tobe
ollwrd to eiiire to.
Mr. O V F RS TREFF: It is a fact there ia
a lare number of intelligent men and
women ilfsirous of having an expression of
the will cf the people on' this subject, and
nawwhen that privilege can bo granted
without expense, it is but a matter of justice
that the opportunity should be given. If
we desire to quiet these people, give them
an opportunity to have it voted upon. Can
any Senator object to have this question
once for all passed upon? It is a right tm
pecple haye to ask the privi'eg9 of testing fa
a leqal way any sach proposition, and the -onht
to have the opportunity of so doiL :
upon this s upon any other question.
Mr. FAULKNER opposed the resolution.
Mr. THOMPSON: This subject has been
rsgitated to long that it ia aoout time the
people should have a chance to vote upon it.
We encht to meet tliia question as men, and
not shrink from it.
Mr. MeOULLOUGH: The vats fr thij
amendment is jnst as much a va'.a f :r the
principle as a vote for any bill is in favor of
tbe measure contained :a it. After to ?ur
reeding Legislatures agree to au amend nent
to the Constitution, then it tj sub-nhtelti
the people to ratify or reject. The ere t
trontle is tfce gentlemen want to om
mer.ee at the wrong ead cf the line. If an
omendmeut to the Constitution Is rijht i
gentlemen are willing to go before thpeop n
and advocate it as rinnt then they caa con
sistently com iu ud advccMe au agree
ment thereto by two consecutive joint As
sembMes. The first step to be Ukea is to
submit to tha people ay propwd a-ueno-

On motion of Mr. TAYLOR, Mr. Thomp
son's bill S Lv0 relative to a Union Depot
at Indianapolis was taken up, the rules sus
pended and the bill read the sscor.d and
Mr. WILLIAMS: I think the bill should
not pa?E. It is proposed by the syndicate of
railway corporations to condemn such
property as they like for a union railway.
This Legislature should not grant this. It
should be done this condemning in the

The question being upon the passage of
Mr. SAYRE: From action on bills of this
character for the past few days I do cot be
lieve remarks on the bill will do any good.
I do not intend to refer to this measure as
oefarious, damnable or anything of that
fort, for such words would be complimentary
to it. If this it to bo the altitude of there
form of the Democracy which we have heird
so much of, I say, God pity the American
Government. There is some consolation to
me In legislation cf this kind, when I think
cf tte history of g'rrvmauder in Indiana.
The Republican, in 1?'72, made an appor
tionment bill which took nine of the Con
gressmen and a majority of the Legislators;
jet in the succeeding campaign the paople
arose against it and reprimanded the Repub
lican party by defeat. In lbJ the Derao-
eratle party repealed the Republican gerry
mander and made one of their own equally
as unfair. What was the result? A-;ain, a?
is always the fate, the people, bec3U3- they
believe In eqmiyand jostica in politics an
well as anything clae, elected a L?.ghlatura
that fent General Un Harrison' .to the
United States Senate instead of Hon. Jo?eph
E. McDonald. Vet I do believe that if this
bill could be trale more Infmcus, tho ma
jority of the House would vo'.e for it.

owing to politics one-third of the voter

Di-L ocratic memt)?r3 arsclose 1 The truth
comes home to me at thii hour that the
Democratic party has no faith in itself, with
eJl its pledges of reform, and s) on.
They are so void in fact of their ability to
manage the ailairs of government
that they propose to steal their
way in. So they make ready to
eecure themselves in advance from all mis
takes. It is no u?e to trAs. of this long. The
b;ll ill pass. Rut in the minority, as I am,
I shall go down with my boots cn. The old
Democratic wagon can not bo repaired. Yon
can't point out the warp in the boards and
the shaggy wheels. It is there. In spite of
ail this, the Democratic party rill go down
with Its broken promises open the oooks in
all. Rut this bill through and from this body
we appeal to the people.
Mr. KKLLISON: I regret that I am not
In a physical condition to speak as I wish.
My connection with my first apportionment
bill is not a pleasant one. O! twelve yea-g
of fidelity to the Democratic party, I have
cow found it necessary to leave the major
ity. I want to stamp this measure as infa
mous. I can not eurport it, looking at my
oath. Why should I follow a Democratic
caocup, when I have been taught from
Infancy that the Democrat!.: pe-"ty is
one of justice and equity. I
have been pronounce i an apostate. If to be
a consistent Democrat, to stand squarely by
my catn and support justice ia an apostate,
Caen write me don as oae. I caa say to
Ihcso blinded by party zeal that in the
Northern part ol the State we study princi
ple und vote it, and therefore our vote Has
mates. The Constitution of the Stats say.i
that the number of Representatives shall
b aprortione.1 according to the namlsrof
11:3! inhabitant!. Ihid does not do thu.
Tnerc are nearly 2 b'.'O more males in Mar
shall than in Pike County, yet
this apporUoriiaeat is not observed.
Here are acorts of others. Is
this carryirg outtiiher the spirit or the
letter of the Constitution7 1 am here to
protest against, all this injustice. I go back
to the year lbS, when 1 bepao to take an
ective part iü politics. Then the oas great
issue was the Republican gerrymander. I
listened to tte speeches reierring to that in
famy ar.d it pet my blood boiling and hss
always, and I eay to th Democratic party,
beware. No one caa questioa my Beaioc-
recy. I have never Tcted for any one bat a
Democrat- I have talked to, have been
sccfrea toby a Darcccrat oftn;8 Moor, whose
hair is whiter than mine, bat who-je Democ
racy does not auto date mine one year, and
I have been locked npon by him a3 a broth
er. The aim I had in vie 1 in suDporting the
Democratic party and patting it in a position
to control was to correct abnse and caus3 re
form. Is this to fall? Taea yoa
will hear from the people. They want a
coed govern. Tjenr, ard will nut cliaj to any
party to the hurt of rights. Tue majority
must be respsctei. If they are not to be
heard, then let us retura to the oae inao
roer; the ?ystm cf voting is a farce then.
Let us rrogreE3 in politics as in everything
else. If my position here, without order
from my constituents, takes m oat the Dem
ocratic party, then I say amen.
Mr. SMITH, ef Tippecanoe: When by
any system in this Government one man is
counted for more than another, then our
idea of equality is destroyed. Eince IMG I
have teen aclose student of political science.
I have been able to call by name and from
memory every Congressman, commencing
at Maine and ending at California. Ol all I
tave ever read thisapportioameat bill ia the
most ontr&seouely unfair of any in history.
I do net except the celebrated shoestring
district cf tne times of Grry. I defy any
one to show me one as bad a this ooe. In
the last enumeration of Indiana there is
about 5,0W for each Representative and
10.000 for Senator, The idea of a picture of
an apportionment does cot convey all the
truth. A fa'r apportionment might look
hideous by the side of a gerrymander and
yet be far more fair. The Democrats are
not tatiffied with 57 per cent, of power but
they insist upon 07 per cent, or more. Is
the ineatitate maw unfilled or the craving
for power unmitigated? In;iM a party
which would do tuch an act ai this would be
at once overthrown. Why here in Drown
County, back among the hills what msat
has this Ca ar eat that it has grown eo strong,
that the little county shall govern four
others? It ia the worst of Mexicanizinj. Iu
New Hampshire at one time its Constitution
' prohibited an amendment to iteelf, yet the
