The Philadelphia Times says: “The Sen ate will be likely to make short work of the claim of Daniel B. Lucas, of West Virgin ia, to the seat in the Senate to which Chaa. J. Faulkner was lately elected by the Leg islature. The regular session of the Legis lature failed to agree in the effort to elect a Senator, and when it adjourned, Governor Wilson very properly filled the position by appointing Mr. Lucas; but a special ses sion of the Legislature then elected Mr. Faulkner. It is argued that the special session could not elect a Senator because the Constitu tion of the State requires special sessions to bo limited to the consideration of such questions as are specially named in the Governors call. That theory is correct as to legislation, but it is illogical when ap plied to the election of a Senator, which is an ever present duty with any ami all Leg islatures when there is a Senatorial vacan cy. It is a duty imposed by the law ol the nation, ami there is nothing in me funda mental law of West Virginia to antagonize it. It was the duty of the 'Vest Virginia Legislature to vote for Senator every day, in cither regular or special session, until a Senator was chosen, ami the Senate will re solve all doubts, if there are any doubts on the subject, in favor of the recognized au thority to commission its members.
