and the senators had stalked into thj
house to witness the closing scenes. But
they took no part in the turbulent and
riotous enthusiasm with which the house
adjourned. The house went into session
early in the morning of a pretty day, and
from thttt time on, with but an hour at
noon, the clerk's voice called over and over
attain the long roll on the pau-e of bills.
The monotonous routine remained un
