THE MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL.
MEMPHIS, TEJSTSr., SATURDAY, 8EPTKMBEB 11, 1869. ESTABLISHED 1840. VOL. 80 -ISTO. 11 BY TELEGRAPH. to to SMttamitem Press MnotoMw SCRANTON. PA. More from the Great Fire All the Bodies Sipposed to be Recovered The Funeral Obsequies. New York, September 10. A Scranton, Pa., disimUh says Mr. Ben jamin Hughes quite satUigfled that no more bodies remain below, and in thin opinion he is endorsed by the bet authorities; nevertheless, to satisfV everybody, the work of search, though temporarily stopped for more thor oughly ventilating, the exploration of the mine will be carried on again to morrow with additional gangs of men, and every possible nook and corner H ill be explored. The funeral of forty-three miners to day was an event of unusual impres siveness. A solemn requiem was toll ed by the city bolls, flags were hung at half-mast, stores were closed, the prin- clpal streets deserted, the numerous locomotives arapeu in mourning, mm ail of the working population of Scranton appeared to have betaken themselves to Avonilale. One tram of thirtv-seven platform cars, carrying thirty-five hundred passengers to the scene of the late uisa-ter, was io areatlv crowded that two men were knocked oft and cut to pieces by the train. The crowd at Avondale was Immense, and extended down the railroad track for miles. A vast majority of those present came purely from motives of curiosity. There were hundreds of women dressed in costumes more befitting a picnic than a funeral, and among many of the men there was a levity and rudeness of manner better adap ted to the neighborhood of a prizo ring than a solemn scone of such great grief. A great deal of controversy is going on in town on the question of who is to blame for the present Inefficient way of ventilating mines and giving protection to the miners. One side iasists it is the miners to olame, for if i they chose to say they would not work In any mine unprovided with means of escape in case of accident to the shaft, the owners of mines would quickly see it was to their Interest to to adopt the proper precautions against the dangers that are so appar ent to miners. The miners say they will risk working anywhere, provided tbey are paid; and are utterly Indiffer ent to palpable danger, as the sailor who goes to see in a leaky ship.

The Commercial Convention has ad journed. The proceedings were any thing but satisfactory to the Missis sippi, Tennessee, Louisiana or Ar kansas delegates. There was literally nothing done for the Tower Missis sippi or the States bordering thereon. The banquet to-night will develop nothing.

The f ni'oii and American is follow ing up its chargo (,f iHtgua members in tho lIous of Itpprestntativs with the requisite proof. The newly elect ed legislators should look Into tho subject aod lie prepared to act under -standingly. We aee no reason why the needed reform should uot In? in the I-icgialature. Ve repub.Lih as fol- lows: The jres and Time$ anserta that the amended Constitution of 18m" nrovhlea for an increase. i,f nine mem- bers in the House -f Uepresentativro, and that toe eighth section of the sciietiuie to tneamenuments proposetl by the Convention of January, 1B65, moditied that provision of the Consti- tntion of lbl wbi'h limits the House of Representatives to seventy-five members. The eighth section of the schedule simply n odifles the appor tionment act of February 1S, 1852. It does not say one word about modify ing the Win section of the second ar ticle of the ConBt.tutloa, which pro scribes the mannor of portioning Ketiresentatives among tne counties and districts, as well as fixing the nuinler or wmch t be House of Bpr--sentativea shall bs composed. Tnat section of the (.'i nstitution of 1834 stands in full force and virtue to- day. If the eighth section of the equally for perms neni elections hy ',iieiul ticket. But. savs thp Prejuund Time, "there was a spe cial reason in 186T. for providing for the election of the Legislature by gen eral ticket," And there was a " spe cial reason " for incrosiaing the num ber of members of the House of Rej reseutatlves. The election by general ticket was to enable men to get into the Legirl uure from counties in which they had not been for months and in which they would not get a single vote. The addition to the members of the House of Representatives was to make room for some hungry patri ots who were out of place and wait ing for something to turn up. If one clause of the section Is permanent, so was the other; and If one was tempo rary, so was the other. There can be no other logical conclusion. But let us see how the matter stands on the JWsxaitd Time' assumption that "the amended constitution of 18C5" pro vides for additional members in the House of Representatives. We copy from the " official report of the pro ceedings" of the convention of Janu ary, IHG5, as published iu the Nash ville Timet of January 16, 1865: " A motion was made to reconsider tho eighth section, in order to add members from the counties of Sevier, Johnson, Carter, Union, and other counties, not now allowed a full rep resentation, making the whole num lier of the house eighty. "The following provisions were added to the section, when it was adopted unanimously: " Provided, That said appointment be so modified as to give to the coun ties of Johnson, Carter, Campbell. Anderson, Union, Sevier, Macon, and Hancock, each ono member, and tho district composed of the counties of Fentress, Morgan, Scott, and Cum berland, one additional member In the House ot Representatives." We have here the authority of the "official report of tho proceedings" of the Convention lor tne statement that It was the purpose of that body to Increase the number of members of tho House of Representatives to eighty, but the official report does not show now tnis was to oe aone. An other report which does not profess to be official dtati though, and from it we cooy as follows : " Mr. Mayuard, of Knox, asked genend consent to introduce a substi tute for the motion before the Conven tion. " The chair decided tho motion out of order, unless tho amendment adopted last evening should be recon sidered. " A motion to reconsider prevailed, and Mr. Maynard introduced his sub stitute as follows: " ' Frovidod, That said appointment be so modified as to give to the coun ties of Johnson and Carter, and Camp bell and Anderson, and Union, and Sevier, and Macon, and Fentress, each one member in tho House of Repre sentatives, and that Mar-on shall be entitled to the member therein pro vided for the counties of Macon. Sum ner and Smith." " Capt. (iarrett, of Overton, offered an amendment mat me counties oi Morjran, Fentress, Scott and Cumber land be entitled to another Represen tative. A gentleman offered another amendment proposing a Representa tive from Hancock county. The amendments to the amend ment were then adopted, and then Mr. Maynarri's amend tueut as amend ed was adopted." .ur. .uaynanrs amendment, wnicn was amended and adopted, was sub sequently changed in its phraseology so as to read as given In the official re port. e now sts' now It was pro posed to increase the House of Repre sentatives to eighty members. Carter and Johnson were to have each one. Instead ot one jointly; Campbell and Anderson were each ono, instead of one jointly; and L'nion, Sevier and frentress were to liave each one. Here we have the increase of members, milking tho whole number of the House eighty," as set forth in the "official report of the proceedings" of the Convention, for Macon was to have the member to which the counties of Macon, Sumner andSmith an- entitltsl under the apportionment act of February 10, 1852. Subsequently, Mr. Maynani's amendment was so modified as to give the member he proposed for Fentress, to the district composed of the counties of Morgan , t entress, heott anil t umberlaud. ills amendment was further amended so as to give a Representative to Han cock. 1 he piirjose of Mr. Maynard s amendment was to create five addi tional members of the House of Rep resentatives, as is clearly shown tv the "official report of the pro ceedings' of the Convention, and It Is stated there as having that enect. How that amendment got into the shas in which it appear- In the " omciai report," is not shown In any ot the reports of tho proceedings of the Convention. Even if we accept the eighth section of the schedule, as law, there have lieen two, If not four bogus members in the House of nep resontatives since the reorganization f the State government. Tho " offi cial report of the proceedings " of the Convention states distinctly that after he eighth section ot the schedule had lieen adopted, it was reconsidered " in order to add members " from certain counties, "not now allowed a full ioprcscntatien, making the whole number of the House eighty." This clearly Indicates the presence In the House of tvepreaantatlvea of four bo gus members. Rut tako the proviso as printed in tho " official report " and n tne acts of ibtj, in connection with the proceedings of the Convention, and it is clear that there have been two bogus members in the House of Kepreser.tativea. The proof Is very iear as to the extent and Intention of he modification of the apportion ment act of February 19. 1852, so far as relates to the counties of Johnson, Carter, Campbell and Anderson. They were eniru 10 seuu ono mi inuei mis nil, four) to the House of Representatives, instead of which they have each sent one, and Johnson and (.arter lomtiv one,and Campbell and Anderson joint ly one, maklug six, Instead of four which the " omciai report or tne pro. ceedings" of the Convention shows they were only to have. But the whole eighth section of the schedule was a temporary a flair, as Is clearly shown by the feet that no effort was ever made to elect members of the Legislature bv a "general ticket" after the election of March 4, 1865. TLe first vacancy that occurred In the first Ijegislature under the reorganized government was filled by an election by the qualified voters of the county or district. The bogus members werp onlv tolerated because they belonged to the party in power. It is a fraud upon t(ie State which can be justifled upon qo other grounds than mat of party expediency, and we repeat what we liave heretofore said, that we greatly mistake the character of the new Legislature u mis rrauu snau oe permitted to disgrace the legislative depart meat of the State, The IJrownHVllle Bte, in its Issue of Friday, say: The Avalanche has lieen rewanlea oy tne itausi for nuit- in the DemtK-raXic party.
