Jutant tlrnrril's Clerk
.Tcfferjon City, Mo., IV1. 1 -(Special.)
Mlsoiirl has had a lontr history. In the
hall of representatives many hard political
contests have been fought, but this day
witnessed the llrst walk out of the minor
ity. At 12 o'clock Dr. Tubbs called up his
resolution offered yesterday provldlnn; for
nn Inquiry as to whether or not a clerk id
needed In the otllce of the adjutant pen
eral anil, If fo, what work ho has to do
and what portion of his time Is required
In the performance of his duties. The res
olution belmr rend, Dr. Tubhs orfered ,
substitute which Included nn Investigation
of the olllclal conduct of the state librar
ian, J. W. Hcvcly. The substitute proUrted
for nn Inquiry as to whether the clerk In
the adjutant ccneral's otlico nnd the state
librarian devoted all their time to their
olllcl'il duties, or whether they had dented
considerable time In the car past to poll
tics; nnd If to polities, hail they drawn
their talarles. The pi llu letter of the law
requires a state emploe to devote all of
his time to his position. It Is notoilous
that Mr. Zevely, state librarian, dm Ins
about four months last summer, acted as
secretaiy of the state Democratic central
committee, and drew pay for such political
seivlce. Mr. Connelley, the adjutant Ben
eral's cleik. was also out makltur political
speeches. Mr. Zevely also practices law
and It Is said that Mr.Connelley Is studylnif
to be a lawer. -Mr. Zevely Bets (Sfi per
year. .Mi. Connelley Sl.r.w per oar. The
pioposed Investigation was for tho purpose
ot dlscovetlnir whither the portions held
by the Kemlemen lequiri'd eleiks at all.
It Is enoUKh here to say that the Investiga
tion was stiKKested by SuMmier and Ar
nett, both Democrats. The substltuti- was
rtad. At once Dtiuoci.its biuan dilatory
tactics. Davidson, ot .Marlon, Jumped to
his feet and moved to refer the resolution
to some lommlttee. He supplemented his
lemaiks by calllne; the lonlutlon bun
combe and vate of time. .Mr. Tubbs le
nlled that if such men as D ivldsun would
Kteii still, the resolution would bo adopted
In about a half a minute Then Julian, ot
Kansas City, had something to a. lie
was followed by Kisev, Tate, Piitchett,
ltoibwell and a half do.en other Demo
crats, who yelled themselves hoarso to
make a noise and kill time.
Mr. Martin called for the previous ques
tion on the substitute. Then pandemonium
relirned. The Democrats weie, determined,
to prevent the Investigation by-'any pos-'
.Iblo means. Quickly the ran from scat
ro seat holdlntf consultations, while the
spi alter rapped for order, which none of
tin m oheul. Tiny neied like a lot ot rats
in a case with a Scot, h terrier In their
Urabelle, of St. f.ouls, and Mr. Uuekner
m Lie a break lor the door at the same In.
st int fitlier Democrats saw It nnd fol
luwed. our into the -enate chamber, up
lino the dome, iloun Into the basement
thiv i.in. The er . "the en,'e.int-nt-atms
Is cumins" sent them scurrying faster than
In riu'e. It was a slKlll never ill ne icir
Kutteii and tor the i;lory of .Missouri, may
It never be'r pelted. Davidson and Julian
st.icd In the hall to see how tho Kopub-lli-ans
would manage "no quorum." Sul-lliiK-er
and Arnett kept their setts and
voted for the resolution. The roll wai
called, which showed who were absent.
Then the seiiteant-at-urms w is Instructed
in hrlm,- In the absentets Iteids' lules
pioved to be elllclent A half do.un Dem
ni'rats walkid with bowed heads to their
seats. Their names were called and they
were notlhVd by the speak i that they
would be intuited present nm! that under
the rub" tin v must vote. To this Cop
pede and Kai-ev In angry words protested.
The rule, however, was lived and tho
speaker would not lecede from Ills position.
Then Julian. Averv, Hall and a few more
Democrats came In and took their places.
They would not vote, but they could not
net out and In despair they (,-ave It up. At
I'M p. m. Tuhb's substitute resolution was
adopted, llepublicans had won a slKnal
victory. , ....
Democrats tq-nlirht concede their own
defeat and In dejected talk are consider.
