that there Is no one who could

more zeal, fidelity nod patriotism than
he whose term of service will soon ex
pire. Of the interest of the coast, the
frontier and laboring masses, who nave
to bear the burthens of state, ho
has been alike mindful, lie is no
new man. For thirty years lie has
been identified with Texas. She has
more than once honored him and in
return ho has served her well. Hut
sir, to zeal and patriotism ho adds
that virtue of rightly understanding
and boldly proclaiming the
limitations of (ho written
constitution. A Jcflersonian Demo
crat of the strictest type, ho has nlwnyit
opposed the tendency to centralization
of power as a thing as pernicious In
politics as nationalism m religion,
but if I was called on to mention
the one thing which above all others
entitles him to confidence, I would
mention his opposition to tho pro
tective tariff, which, in its operations,
pours tlio earnings of the toiling
millions of this land into the pockets
of those ayIio own its forges and
looms. In congress and on our bioad
prairies his Toice has been heard de
nouncing this great wrong, lie saw
with prophetic ken that even from the
ashes after humiliation and defeat the
South would yet strike hands with
her brethren of the great West on
this question, and administer this, the
government of the people, for the
benefit of th whole people,
and not for the hampered
industries owned by the few. Sir I
nominate Hiuhnrd Coke as the proper
man to succeed himself.

making twenty members necessary to

fered with the committee and held
that every member has a constitu
tional right to demand a full vote
on any question. Mr. Hill
opposed tho change and said
that making tho number necessary to
raise 11 call, twenty, looked as If tho
object was to prevent any call at all.
Ho cited the fact that congress with
nearly three times as many members
only required fifteen for a call. Tlio
effect of this change would be
to deny the right of tho house
to compel the attendance of members
who desired to dodge responslblity for
their voles. He believed in fond ng

said the object of all rules was to facil
itate legislation, and anything tend
ing to that should bo utilized. As tho
rule was now, a minority can obit met
legislation, by preventing the majori
ty from doing that which the law
contemplated it should, and alluded
incidentally to a case in the Sixteenth
Legislature, where a member was un
successfully searched for several days.
Ho thought if a member dodges a
question, It Is n mutter between him
and his constituents.
Mr. Moorsuud said that under tho
proposed change a minority could do
much harm. For instance, seventy
one members makoa quorum. Thirty
six of these could pa-s a bill, which
would bo a minority or the one hun
dred and six members, ami hence It
would be minority legislation.
Mr. Nash said if this change oc
curred it would bo Impossible for a
slnglo constitutional amendment to be
passed. All absentees count against
tlio pending question, and it woald
require every single member of the

the mouiber who can move a call,
back to fifteen. Accepted bj the com
