Washington, February 26.-For.
mal discussion of the right of former
Senator Quay to a ?oat in the Sen

was begun today by Senator Turley,
of Tennessee, in a constitutional ar
gumeut against the seating of Mr.
Consideration of the Hawaiian

discussion between -enator Tillhnar,
of South Carolina, and Se-nator
Spooner, of Wieoin'tn, in which
the former admitted t hat b.lot box

been shot in the South to maintain
white domination. An amend went
was made to the bill, htrikirg outt the
property qualitication for voter- for
members of the Logitlature, but. lit
tle other progross was nmado.
Senator Turloy, who preparoel the
majority report of the cownmitteo on

Senator Turley agreed that the
representation from each State ought
at all times be kept fulf, but he did
not believe the framer. of tho Consti

confer upon some body ole the duty
to fill the vacancy in cast tho Legis
lature failed to perform its duty.
"It is not poFsible," he said, "to
coorce the Legislature or to coerce
the people and when they fail of
their duty it's a place where our sys
tem breaks down."
Senator Turloy then entered upon
a detailed discussion of the constitu
tional- and technical points involved
in the ease, his lesire boing, he said,
to present every legal phase of the
"Every State," he said, 'should be
notilied,in language that cannot be
mistaken, that its peruat%ent repro

upon it electirg a Legislature that
will do its duty.
"Let it once be uiar,nod," be
continued, "that tho-se conte'sts are
not personal questions, and will be
decided on legal and constitutiona.
grounds, and the bringing of con
tests here will soon censo. In my
experience I cannot recall an bonest
division of the Legislature on party
lines. There are always three or
more ambitiodTh candidales in the
same party who creae.t all the trou-|

seventy-five years has a Senator been
admitted here who was appointed by
the State Executive after the Legis
