houses or the state legislature voted
separately yesterday for a United

business up to a few minutes befoi
time for tln balloting for senator 11
a. in. and both took recess for the
few minutes and then reconvened at
11. In the senate McKenzie. of Jo
Daviess, placed in nomination for sen
ator Hon. Albert J. Hopkins. He was
followed by Senator Fowler, of the
Democrats, who presented the name
of Representative James R. Williams.
Seconding nominations were on the
part of Republicans by Riley, and for
the Democrats by Dawson.

high honor this morning to second the
nomination ri .1 .-lines H. Williams, of
Carml. "or I'nited States senator.
While it has come to pass that the
members of the legislature and the
public at larc look upon a day like
this as the mere perfunctory consum
mation of weeks, months, aye. of the
times, years of caueussing. wire-pulling,
scheming and manipulation, yet
this day n record will be made on
basic principles of our government,
namely: Are the chosen representa
tives of the people its masters or its
servants? Can the people's representa
tives intentionally and deliberately
thwart the people's will?"
1 .8llen Were Looking On.
iMiriugthe nominating speeches Mrs.
Hopkins. Mrs. Yates, Mrs. M. K. Railoy
(of Danville). Mrs. A. II. Scott and Mrs.
Robert Mathis (of Chicago! occupied

senate journal should show the pref
erence of all absentees for the I'nited

HOW IT WAS DONE IN THE BOUSE
Some of the Speeches Quoted Witty lie
marks of a Teetotaller.
In the house Wheeler, of Sangamon,
placed Hopkins in nomination. "1
rise," lie said, "to present to this as
sembly the name of a native-born on
of Illinois for the exalted office of
I'nited Stutes senator, and in doing
this J can hut f eel that I am obeying
the express mandates of the people.
Injlhe name of the Republic
an party Wheeler comludedj. united
and harmonious, vith our united vote
(.peaking forIl thiv counts for Repub
licanism and r-.ire citizenship, we nom
inate for I'nited States senator Albert
J. Hopkins, of Aurora." I Applause.
Pa pp. of Wayne- county, placed
James R. Williams In nomination, pay
ing a high tribute to his ability and to
his public career. Stewart, the only
Prohibition member of the assembly,
placed John (I. Wooley in nomlnatioii.
He held the house in rapt attention
for more than half an hour. His speech
was devoted largely to an exposition
of the jirinciples of the Prohibition
party and was full of witty allusions
to the old p.irties.
"This house," said lie. "is made up
f total abstainers." Laughter. That
s no joke. The reason I knov it is
hat at least nine-lent lis of th niem
iers of this house have personally as
pired me that they never t.iV li-pn.r

When a man Votes one way and prnys
another he losses his prayer his vote

500 prayers. Great laughter.
Stewart throughout his speech was
liberally applauded, and when he sat
