ceeding hoc of non-proceeding. If ihe
speaker did not at some point reluse to al
low (IMatory motions, then of course the
hands of tne house were tied up and io
wouUl not perforin hi functions.
Carlisle, of Kentucky, spoke on the side
of the minority. .The house, he snid, had
established rulei and was bound by them
in nil its proceedings. If the house could
disregard ihem lor one purpose it could
disregard tbeiu for oilier purposes. He
woulu not characterize tins proceeuing
as itsiiuck hisjudgmcnt. He would cedii
the other side with the same des're to pr3-
sorve the honor and dignity of Jn p'o
ceedings that he claimed for his r'de. If
the house were not bound by its Ji"e" now
it would not be bound at other limes,
li the majority could, in attempting lo
alke up the conlerHed elecl'on case,
change a rule in order lo establish a new
melhodof proceeding It could step in the
midst of iho appropriation bill and change
t he rules that govern the proceeding of the
bouse m the consideration of that measure,
and so it could go on and on urn ;l the rules
were filtered away and thero would be

He p occeded to quote the remarks
of tiaiiield in defense of the
rights ol Die minoriiy and yielded to
WiJ'iains, of Wisconsin, to read some iur
ther remarks of Uartield on the same occa
sion iu which the uc.ion ol of the minority
was characterised as revolutionary.
Carlisle asserted that (iaiiield had subse
quently to those remarks engaged in just
such proceedings as the minoi'.y now was
engaged in. ICries of "Nevei!" from the
republican sioe.j In tiie closing of the -huh
congress the filibustering policy had
been resorted to by the republican major! y
toprevent'aciion on Ihe apportionment hill.
He did not consider that action revolution
ary, although he did consider it unjust
ified. For the minority lo prolect
itself by a resort to parliamentary
powers was an unquestioned right in this
country. In conclusion he defended the
action of the minority in the present caso,
declaiinglthat there was not an enlight
ened court of justice in Christendom that
would not suppress tlie testimony which
was objected to in this contested elec ion
Haskell, of Kansas, made an argument
on the republican side of the question.
Ulackburn, of Kentucky, followed on the
democratic side. He insisted that while
asserting and granting the right of the
house lo change its rales, the
clinne must be made accord
ing to the terms and conditions
which the rules themselves imposed. He
showed the inconsistency of requiring the
speaker to exclude dilalo-y motions on the
question of amending the rules, wh'le al

Knott, of Kentucky, after some further
colloquy, made a constitutional argu
ment in support of bpnnger s position.
The command of tiie cousillulion was
plaiu and peremptory that each house
should keep a journal of ils proceedings.
It that meant, any tiling 11 meant that every
transaction whicli look place during its ses
sions, every motion maue and every ruling
on it. should be reduced to wriliug. Tlie
journal implied a complete and truthful
juui uui. JUD trutu tuuv u niutiuii was out
ot order was no reason wny tnai motion
and ruling upon it should not appear on
tne journal. Ou the contrary, it should be
recorded as a precedent lor the future. If
nothing was to go on the journal except
whatever Ihe speaker choose to have en
tered on it, then the will of the speaker and
not the constitution or tlie rules would be
law of the house. Where was the redress
and what would then become of the
provision of tlie constitution which
ivquireu tnai liie proceeuings
ol the house should be Iruilifuliy reco-ileil?
Had il come to this, that the arbitrary
diclttin of tlie speaker, right or wrons, was
to supersede and overrule the constitu
tion? He bad as high a respect for tbe
speaker us any oilier member had, yet he
could not say the speaker was infallible or
ncapabie ot malting mistakes. When the
speaker refused to entertain the motion.
was lie perfectly justihed 111 such refusal
He (Knott) could not say that the speaker
was not mistaken. On the contrary, he
said that the speaker was mistaken because
the rules cave the rmht ot appeal from the
decision of the chair.
The sneaker admitted the accuracy of tbe
general proposition stated by Knott, but
repealed that tlie jonrnal clerk had acted
strictly in obedience to the rules.
Haskell, ot Jvansas, argued that the jour
nal was to conl aili the proceedings ofthe
house, to be a record ofthe things done by
tiie house. A motion that was not enle"

wilh his opening speech in Ihe contested

bad not finished the hrst sentence when the
attention of the speaker was ended by
the democratic member, lo the lact Unit
the journal had not yet been approved.
They demanded the yeas and nays on the
nuestion of approvul. The vote proceeded
and as the democrats withheld their votes,
there was a rkelthooti of a failure of a
quorum, but an active hunt alter repub
lican absentees disclosed the fact that Wil

promise to vote, it necessary to make a

uameron jb u a coiuerence to-day with
number of well-known business liien, rep
resenting commercial, financial, and manu
facturing interests of the state with refer
ence to supporting the ticket. It has
been decided that jho regular republican
convention will be convened within the
next fifteen days and will be composed of
l lie same delegates who formed the iirst
convention, and the vacancy caused by the
declination of Marshall will then be
tilled. Among those present in the
conference were Charles Cramp,
Joseph Patterson, President Cuniming, of
tlie Uirard bank, Perry M. Phillips, Kiato
Senator A. AVilson, Norris Hamilton Ih'ss
ton, James Dobson, K. P. Knight and Colo
nel K. A. Louden Suowden. Chairman
Cooper called during the morning also
Wm. Henry Kowie. The senator slated to
his visitors his purposes in inviting them in
conference was to Jay before them the real
slate of affairs and the damages which
threatened the life of tiie party. The
success of the ticket he told them
rested with the great agricultural,
mining and commercial interests of
the state. He had fought for
a protective tariff in the senate, as his
lather had done in other days, but if those
who had heretofore supported tlie republi
can ticket wanted to stab him, he was
ready to receive the blow, and he would
oppose a tariff in the ssnato as. heartily as
he had supported it. "If you want to kill
the party we will all go to destruction to
gether," was the significant warning of the
senator. He assured his visitors ho was
simply working for the good eif bis party;
that he bad nothing more to seek lor him
self than had already been realized, and
henceforth he hud no other desire than to
Ecjve the best interests of his state and
THE TIMES' FEELERS.
New Yor.K, May 2. The Times printed
fifty answers to the following questions ad
dressed to 100 editors of Democratic news
pairs at the county seats in Alabama,
Arkansas. Florida, tieorgia, Louisiana, Mis
sissippi, North Carolinu, bouth Carolina,
and Texas :

party managers in harmony with the gen
eral sentiment of the people of your dis

administration of President Arthur?
Third Is there iu your neighborhood
any decided expression in regurd to tlie

The summary of unswers to the first

party, and it may he laid down as made i'b
