So many Democrats oppoaed adoption of th Senate proposals of amen'Jment that it looked at flret as If there was a party movement against tho Gover not, but thls seems not to bo the case. There has developed on the part of some' members, as least, a feel lng against permlttlng tho Senate to dlctate to the House, and a further reason for objecting to the proposed change was that some members be lloved a Rutland man was a candl date fbr the appolntmcnt and would Ue glven the place lf the Governor should b glven tho power of ap polntmont.
