?.Ir. Wallace moved that the credentials of
Mr, Lamar be taken from the table and he
be sworn aa senator from Mississippi.
Mr.'Anthony moved that the senate ad
journ rejected, 38 to 15.
Mr. Blaine said Mr. Lamar's creden
tials were entirely regular and he was as
much entitled to be sworn as himself or
any other senator sworn yesterday.
A long debate eusued and Mr. Spencer
wanted lioutwell's committee's report last
session on Mississippi affairs read, but
the senate refused.
Mr.Klaine argued that the report rnitrht
show that the legislature which elected Mr,
Lamar was illegal, but that was a matter
tor subsequent inriui'y. It was a danger
ous thing to stop a senator from taking the
oath who bore the proper credentials.

that one year ago Mr. Thurman stood on
the other side of this prirtvi facie business

Mr. Thurman there could be no iuvestiga
tion as to the legislature which elected Mr,
Lamar, but there could be as to which
elected Pinchback. He (Morton)
held the same doctiine now as be
did in the Pinchback case.
