bgan the debate on the new rules yesterday.
Cannon reporting them, and making the j
first spnech in explanation and advocacy !
thereof. Tbe understanding wa that for
tbe day there should be no limit to the do
bate, and no agreement was made as to whan
tt should terminate. Cannon stated that of ,
the forty-seven rules which governed the last
boose, twenty nine were reported without
material change. He then said that the rule,
were framed with a view to enabling the
majority to make tbe law. without una
aery delay Such rules, he believed.
drmand'si bv tbe people, and they would at
least forward bu.in.as, by preventing the
time of tbe bouse I eiug taken up with dila
tory motion, carried to excess.
Mlaorltjr " Trraaay Preferable.
He defended the proposed chang prohib
iting the speaker from entertaining dilatory
motion., and denied that the proposed rule
was tyrannical: but if It was, then it
waa a tyranny sustained bv th. ma
jority of the house If ha had to choose be
tween the tyranny of a constitutional ma
jority, reapon.ible to tbe people, and the ty
ranny of an irre pou.ible minority be would
stand by tbe constitution and so act aa to let
the majority rule. Referring to the rule
permitting the speaker to count a quorum,
be said that if the Democrats wanted to go
to the country a. again.t the principle con
tained in the rule, the Republicans were
rwady to meet them and let the people choose.
Mllla on tha Purpose or Rule.
Mills claimed that the code of rules wa.
founded on tbe prin iple that the majority
was divinely constituted, and could do no
wrong. Rules were not iu tended alone to
facilitate business: they were intended to
protect the rights of the minority, and they
had always done so from tbe beginning of
tbe government. It was upon tbe sober sec
ond thought of tbe people that the govern
ment reste I. Rules were intended to make
the house pause, deliberate, and in some in
stances go iack.
Views of Other Oratora.
Bayne of Pennsylvania argued that the
proposed code of rules would facilitate the
transaction of business and prevent a small
minority nullifying tbe will of tbe majority.
He argued at great length in support of the
constitutionality of the rule permitting the
counting of member, present and not voting
to make a quorum, and he cited decisions of
state legislatures and many legal decisions
as well in .jpport of this position.
Blount made an argument agaut the
proposed code, dwelling especially on the
rule making 100 members a quorum of the
onnmittee of the whole His speech cl

Salt Lark City, Utah, Feb. 11. The
municipal election yesterday passed off
quietly. The city wa crowed with special
police, detectives and deputy United States
marshals, for the purpose of preventing ille
gal voting, which each party claimed that
the other would resort to. It was feared
that an attempt to challenge and arrest v ot
ers would result in riot and bloodshed, but
this anticipation was not realised; and
though the excitement waa so intense that
half of the business bouses were closed, or
der prevail d Band, paraded the streets,
and the thoroughfares were jammed with
excited citizens who realised that upon the
result of tha battle depended '-ha future of
the Mormon church a. a political organisa
tion. The voting passed off quietly, and
only six arrests were made for illegal vot
ing, and these were accompanied by no dem
onstration from either side.
Significance of the Flection.
The officers voted for were a mayor, re
corder, treasurer, assessor an-1 marshal
of Salt Lake City as well as
three couneilmen and one justice of the
peace for each of the five precincts of tbe
city. The ostensible issue was that of pub
lic improvement There is not a foot of
paved street or sidewalk in tbe city except
what is the result of private enterprise. The
Gentiles do not like this. The Mormons al
lege that the result of Gentile supremacy
lu city affair-. will he heavy
taxes and debt, and the bood
lery that marks the administration of New
York and C hicago. The question of polyg
smy was not at issue, so the Mormons
claimed, a. no on but Monogamists could
vote. There were more important ques
tions under those apparent, however. It
was a !'.!. for and against Mormonism,
and a strup;le for control not only in tbe
city but in the territory, and iu influence
will be momentous as to the future of Utah
Tbe parties to the contest went under tbe
names of Lib-ral (Gentiles) and Peoples'
Bad Weather for the Contest.
Snow began falling early yesterday morn
ing and continued until noon, when tbe sun
came out, melting tbe snow and turning the
streets into rivers of slusu. This did not
deter tire voters, many of whom waded
through the mud to tbe polling places, while
hundreds of carriages ran between the pre
cinct headquarter, an 1 every part of the
city, conveying voter to and from the
polls By noon 8,000 votes had been east ,
which by the poll-books showed that about
75 per cent, of the People's ( Mormon's regis
tered vote had been cast, and about M per
cent, of the Liberal's (Gentiles). At that
hour it was estimated that the returns at
tbe Gentile headquarters gave them a ma
jority of Jo? vote, though up to 11 o'clock
the Mormon, had a majority ranging from
200 to 900.
The Cent lie TVin the Tletory.
The polls closed at 6 p. m. The Liberal
leader-, o. sited a bulletin claiming 1,200 ma
jority. The news spretul rapidly, and the
Gentiles becam wild with joy They lit
erally to.. k possession of tbe city, the Mor
mons retiring to their homes. Flags were
run up in all directions, and lanterns and
fireworks illuminated the streets and build
ings Cannons boomed, bonfires were lighted
at every corner, ami hundreds of men in line
paraded the streets with drums and torches,
yelling like mad No such scenes were ever
witnessed lef. re in Utah. Tbe Mormons
admit tln-ir defeat, but say that it was
brought about by the most glaringly ill- gal
methods, ami that tbe result will be reversed
by the courts. They do not think tbe ma
jority shown by the returns will exi-ecl 400
Kept It Co Battll Morning.
At In o'loek the crowd, on the streets be
came so grtsat that the horse cars were com
pelled to stop running. The excitement was
Increasing, and the celebration continued
until morning Notwithstanding the great
excitement th spirit of good nature pre
vailed, and there was no disiosition shown
to quarrel or raise disturbance The sa

Chamberlain, a D , Feb. 11. The loud
intonation of a cannon yesterday afternoon
startled the horde of people camp.! here
awaiting an opportunity to get into the Sioux
lands. This was tbe signal that tho proclama
tion bad been issued, and was intended as
a warning to the crowd of town-site boom
ers secreted in the heavy timber on American
island to get upon tbe coveted bottom on the
east side of the river. Immediately repre
sentatives of the various combination, sent
here for tbe purpose of securing thi. tract
were in motiou, and team, laden with lum
ber were at once started ou a dead run
across tbe river Crowds gatberej ou tbe
high bluffs to watch the exciting race.
Horses were whipped up, and great loads of
building material moved at a rattling pace
to American island, which lies between this
city and the reservation.
Indian Police Powerlees.
The Indian police, to the number of nearly
10U, who had been been placed as a guard to
prevent any premature Invasion, stood daxed
and ttunned as they viewed the irresistible
rush for the reservation They were per
fectly powerless to check the wild stampede.
The most novel sight of all was the moving
of a reasonably large building, under which
had been placed heavy timbers and wheels,
on a deed run for the coveted lands.
Many Legal Complication..
In a few minutes the several sections on
the valuable bottoms were literally covered
with claimants, and it will take a score of
Philadelphia lawyers to solve the problem as
to who are the rightful owners. The local
town site bootuers undoubtedly scored an ad
vantage of the other organized bodies by a
few minutes, but along with thj boomers
are many who intend to secure homestead
filings, if passible, and if this course is per
sisted in it wiil complicate matters and i-e-ult
in a protracted legal struggle. Many
rushed promptly into the uplands and began
at once the erection of houses, and they will
vigorously defend their rights as against
Tain Attempts at Ejection.
United States Marshal Fry aud Agent An
derson, assisted by deputies and Indian po
lice, however, were soon at work attempting
to eject the invaders in the absence of word
from the secretary of the interior, but the
forces at their disposal were entirely inade
quate to the requirements of the occasion,
and while many were notified and escorted
back to tbe river there was not a large
enough force to keep them off. and they
promptly returned to their claims. Last
night the settler, camped on their claims.
Rmh at the Lumber Tarda.
The lumber yards were rushed to their ut
most capacity all night, tbe boomers being
too anxious to aw-ait tbe arrival of dawn,
and by morning the appearance of the reser
vation for many miles westward had under
gone a greet transformation. Building went
on all night, and inside of forty-eight hours
the buildings will have been erected aud
everything in running order, with a popula
tion of between 2.01)0 aud 3.UU0. The great
difficulty, however, and one which will
seriously hamper development, will be their
inability to transfer and give title to then
lands THE RUSH AT PIERRE.

Tbe crowd was prepard. and only waiting
for tbe word to start. First news rsj re
ceived by the two daily papers, which iu ten
minutes had extras on tbe street Then a
cannon in front oi the state house roared,
and the hundreds of boomers who bad gath
ered on tbe river bank knew tbcv were at
liberty to start, and the crowd made a break
for tbe river bank, and a raud rush for the
other side began.
The Legislature Enthuses.
When the news was made known in tbe
state hous by the booming of the cannon
the members of the l.gislature arose from
their seats and gave tbrea long cheers, and a
motiou to adjourn went through with a
shout Flags floated from every building,
bands made as much noise as possible, and bed
lam reigned. Those who did not cross in the
rush kept up the general hurrah in tbi city.
