aubs tituttsnwas ofereel to that mautiimb' 11
the Senatc* frona the Seoand DistrictI
that the Senate sWould proceed to elect a 4
committa on rules by ballot That substi- 9
tote va adopted, and shortly after- f
wards the Senate adjourned. 'esedrs - a
motion was made to proceed to an elec- )
tion for that rngamittee, notwithlManding' a
the fact tilat the Renate had, the day be- A
fore, voted to elect by ballot. I hold that
this motion to proceed to an election to a
day is out of Order, and that the only
motion that ree be made is to proceed to
an election in accordance with a resolu
tion passed on Monday. The gentleman a
from Carroll says that it is an enpression (
of the will of the Senate as to the mode 8
of electing standing committees. I have i
only to say that the Chair has twice do- t
cided the motion to an election at of or- a
der, and, in each instance, it has been
sustained 1 the Senate. Consequently,
it is not known, up to this present mo
ment, whether'it is the will of the Senate
that it should elect the standing commit- e
tee or that the President shall exercise t
the power of appointment. Why is it, a
gentlemen of the Senate, t t we are
asked at this time, after two secrs and a
half have passed-after three sessions of ,
experience with committees appointed by t
the President of the Senate-to alter the j
rules and take that power away from (
him' I can not conceive why such an
effort is being made. I know of no neces
sity for it I have watched closely the
proceedings of the Senate, and I have
noticed that, at the adjournment of the
lifferent sesions of 1868, 1869 and 1870,
vtou were complimpented by both the
Democratic and Republican parties for
the able and impartial manner in which
von had exercised the high functions of
your position. I hold that if this Senate
low says that you can not appoint these
,namittees, it shows a want of confi
lence in you ; or, at least, a want of rea
r pact toward you asthe presiding officer
I of this body; and the efects of it will ex
tend beyond the limits of this Senate
eoor, and some of the Senators will be
)rought face to face with it. I close by
Sdaying that I shall vote to sustain the{
;:air now, as I did yesterday. In act I
on almost persuaded to make a motion
!o adjourn; but, in defence to Mr. Anto
t ine who attempted to obtain the floor
before me, I shall not do sou
The clause of the constitution referred
Lo as bearing on this resolation, adopted
,n the first day of the session, react as
-ollows:
"In ell elections by the people the vote
',all 4eabkeu by ballot; and in all elee
.ios tby the Senate aad House of Repre
.sntativqp, jointly or separatly, the vote
Asall be given viva wce."
Therefore, the gentleman says the r
iulution passed day before yesterday is
na direct violation of the constitution,
and ean not be entertained. This article
Af the constitution applies only to certain
d State officers elected by the Seaste and
House of Representatives, either jointly
)r separately. Now, I say that the elec
tion fea committee is not the lection of
)fMcens of the State of Louisiana. This
irticle of the conmtitution goveras the
t election of Stat. offcers ealy, as for in
a itance the election of a United States
Senator or any other oflicer who is chosen
x-cording to law, by the Lagialature of
the State. This isnct acase wbre the
Lqislature or the senate esets. a stae
..ffio; but it is simply creating officers
s. o dao ertain workS8r heSeate alone.

Mr. Ray: Some remarks have hale foie the
Senator who has justaksen his seat, whih I feel
bound to reply to. He has rmnba d that those
who opposed the psassae of this resolution were
unnecessearily taking up the time of the Senata
[ Now, when it was proposed on the first day of
the sesmion to adopt the same rseolmath that is
almost uniformly adopted by all legiative
bodies, that the Senate should adopt the rules
that governed it the last seseion, the very same
gentlemen that favor the resolution brought up
p now,refused to vote for it; and now they have the
t temerity to charge as with delaying the proceed
ing. of the Senate. Now, sir, if that course pro.
posed on the first day had been followed, we
would have been ready fros that very day to go
into any business that oa'lbefore us. It is not
our fault, but theirs, that business has been so
t long delayed. I hurl back with contempt such
a charge on any man that makes it here,as being
untrue, and not in socordance with the facts.
a Now, as to the merits of this question. I said
something on the same subjecton the first day
of the sesmion, and I propose to reiterate, is sub
stance, what I said then. On the first day of the
session I said that I believed that from the orga
ndzation of our State government down to the
present time the power of appointing the stand
a ing committees of the Senate had always been
it left to the President of the Senate. I 'was cor.
I. reoted by the Senator from Orleans, who spoke
) of some ease of the kind that had taken plaoe in
the year 1813.
t Posesibly there, may hae beenn en ezaption
- made at that time but I have not looked into
it to see how far it goes, nor is it necessary that
I should do on, I also stated that previous to the
year 1845 there had been no lieutenant Govern
dll or of this State elected, and that the Senate had
Df elected their own presiding officer. From 1845
01 up to the present time, during which period we
have had a Lieutenant Governor, there has
Snever been a departure from the general rule.
" On the costuary, when a gentleman of very
a high standing by te name of Monton was pre.
y siding over the Senate, in Ms eapecityaslIeats
neat Governor, Ind a aotios wee made to take
the appointing power of one oommittse out of
his hands, he considered it a personal impute
tion, and took up his hat mat resigned. The
;" general power of appointing standing commit
`l ;ees was not proposed to be taken away from
him ; but simply the power to appoint one enm
mitte.. He considered it a preseedingso contra.
ry to precedent, as so Pave as imputatie upon
himself; or upon the manner in which he had
if discharged the duties of his adoe, that he re
re signed. That is the only time that the rule has
on ever been departed from since 1845,
PI Now, Mr. President, why has a role of that
ld kind almset universally been adopted? It is
le because long experience has demonstrated that
it is the beit rule that cma be adopted. It is be.
cease the Speaker of the House and the Pres
Mt identefthe Senate havea knowledge of each and
every member of the respeetive bodies over
le whisk they preside, end they form the com
La mitte4 in aecordance with that knowledge. For
instance, on the &dilauy Committee, they put
