Quite a flutter of excitement was
created in the houeo of representatives
'at Jefferson City last veek by the In

Sciohed, That the Committee on
Elections i .hcrt-by cp.uired to pro

Missouri, as shajyn by he certificates
held Jjy the members of this House,
nndef'seal of th'e County Clerks of the
counties which tboy claim to repre
sent. Mr. Aildrege said that he was com
pelled to offer the resolution by the
fact thtt bis right to a seat in the
House had been questioned That it
had been stated that be had not paid a
State and county tax as required by
the Bonstltutlon. and that he desired
that the matter should be investigftted
that he might be set aright.
The resolution was opposed by Mes
srs. Davis Arnold and Pepper,
Mr. Colliiins admitted that ho ha
not paid bis taxes, thnt he hod been
elected as a Democrat a;d that if he
was tp b ousted for nonpayment of
taxes,' two-thirds of the members of tho
House would leave it.
The matter was finally dlpoed ot
by Mr. Alldredge withdrawing his re
solution nd sending up to tle Clerk's
desk his certificate to bo read, which
certificate recited the fact that ho bad
paid a State and county tax as requir
ed by the Constitntlnn.
