WASHINGTON , Feb. 2. The debate on the Hawaiian matter began In the house to day under a special order which will bring It" to a vote next Monday atI o'clock. The adoption of the order was preceded by a very lively passaKO-at-armH between Sir. Doutcllo and Mr. Catching of Mississippi , a member of the committee on rules , which resulted In two attempts made by the former lo have the words of the latter cx- cepted to .by the house and mibjcct him to censure. r Only two speeches wcro made today , the first by Mr. McCrcary , which- was the openIng - Ing argument In support of the resolution under discussion , and which consisted of n very long , critical and analytical rovlow of the entire situation from the Ilrst Inception of the revolution In 1892 to Its consummation In January , 1893. It was In every respect a strong arraignment of the action of Min ister Stevens , YJlo was boldly charged with complicity In the alleged plot to overthrow the existing monarchy. STRONG AND VIGOROUS REMARKS. Mr. Hilt's remarks wore marked with great feeling and vigorous utterances. In his denunciation of the policy of Mr. Cleve land and his characterization of the deposed ( iueen he used the strongest possible terms , frcpuontly eliciting the applause of his re publican colleagues. He had not con cluded his speech when the house adjourned. , Tlic resolution which forms the basis of the pre&cnt discussion is that of Mr. Mc Croary , condemning the act of Mr. Stevens and approving the policy of tlio president , at the amo time expressing the sense of the house that the annexation of tlio Hawaiian Islands Is expedient. For this republicans have offered the minority re port approving Minister Stevens' acts and condemning the acts of the present admin istration. In the course of proceedings today , Mr. Dlair of New Hampshire aifered u resolution favoring the annexation of the Islands. Islands.MORSE'S MORSE'S CUSTOMARY MOVE. lleforo the reading ot the journal Mr. Morse of Massachusetts , rising to a parlia mentary Inquiry , asked If it would bo In or der for him to offer his amendment to the tltlo of the tariff bill. The speaker stated It would not. The amendment which Mr. Morse desired to offer would have made It read an follows : "A bill to Increase tax ation , reduce the revenue of the government and to place at a disadvantage honest men \Yho make truthful returns , and for other purposes. " As soon as the journal was read this after noon , the speaker recognized Mr. Catchlngs from the rules committee to present from that committee n report setting aside today - day , Saturday and Monday for the considera tion of the McCreary Hawaiian rcsoluton. The report provides that the favorable re port ot the committee on foreign affairs on the Hawaiian question shall bo taken up forthwith and bo considered today and the next two legislative days ( Saturday and Monday ) . The vote Is to be taken at 4 o'clock Monday , at which tlmo no Intervening motions shall bo In ordor. The rule provides that Imme diately on voting on the majority report ' the house shall take up' the minority report on Hawaii for consideration until disposed of. of.BOUTELLE BOUTELLE STARTS THE THOUHLR. Mr. lloutcllo ot Maine was on his feet clamoring for recognition to 'call up his Ha waiian resolution , but thn speaker declined to recognize him until the report was ready. Then , ' being recognized , Mr. Doutcllo said that ho rallied the point of order that the report of the committee on rules could not display a privileged resolution affecting the right , nay , the very existence of the house itself. During the debate Representative Doutcllo called to order Mr. Catchlngs of Missis sippi , when the latter stated that the rules committee was providing against Doutelle'a "fantastic and bedlamlc gyrations un the Hawaiian question. " Mr. lloutcllo made his demand amid much confusion. Mr. Catchlngs' words were taken down and read from the desk , but on a vote Mr. Catchlngs was excused. Mr. ditchings had no sooner resumed speaking than ho was again railed to order by Mr. Doutolio for the statement that "tho gentleman ( Iloutolle ) IH ntllicted with R harmless mania for making an exhibition of himself on all occasions. " The words wore read from the desk and Mr. Doutello Insisted on a ruling as to the propriety of the words , Speaker Crisp ruled that the language was not parliamentary. A hot discussion ensued amid much confusion. Mr. Doutello asked that tlio question of privilege ho submitted for the determina tion of the house. The speaker , In making his ruling , stated that beyond question the ordinary proceedings of the house could bo Interrupted by a question or a privileged quest Ion , hut under thn rule under which the house has been operating for the past four weeks , all extra proceedings under an order which has superseded the ordinary rules of the house wcro not In ordor. If there was any Impropriety In this , It was the action of the house , not the speaker. The house was now to ho given mi oppor- tulty to decide by a vote whether U should proceed with the consideration of the resolution from flio committee on foreign affairs or the resolution of tlio gentleman from Maine. The matter was in the liHiuls uf the house. Aa ihu speaker wan concluding Mr. Doutcllo sought to Interrupt him , hut thn chair declined to hear him on the ground that he had given him full time to make hla statement. IX ANORY TEMPER. "I suppose the speaker cannot prevent mo from making my ulntcment after thn pre vious question U ordori'd , " declared Mr. Doutello , hotly. "Tho chair has no doubt that the gcntlSP man will have full tlino , " replied the pcakcr. "I have no doubt ho will have , " retailed Mr. Doutolio , as ho took hla seat. The previous question was then ordered without division and fifteen minutes were al lowed on each for debate. jf ' Mr. Reed yielded three minutes to Mr , Doutello. As the chair ncomed strongly Indisposed - disposed to allow him to call hi * attention to matters affecting hla rullnga , said Mr. Dc > u > tcllo , sarcastically , ho would take this oppor tunity tu do BO , aa ho was proceeding to dis cuss ( he affect ot the adoption of the special order , In reply to some Ironical remark Iron ) Mr , Catcblugg of Mississippi , Mr. Deu- tcllo said he presumed If tlio gentleman ( Mr. ditchings ) hail known him at n more remote period ho would have supposed him n lit sub ject for a lunatic asylum or n military prison. ( Democratic Jeers. ) Ho went on to criticise the democratic triumvirate which , ho Bald , dominated the proceedings of the house , and In the course of his remarks ho ashed what tlo house would do on occasions when the "master" ( refcr- Ing to' the speaker ) was absent at a banquet given In honor of the memory of General llobcrt K. Leo. Mr. Durrows , In a few words , protested against what ho deemed the growing power of the committee on rules , and especially Its power to Ret n limit to subjects which the house was to consider. Mr. Reed called attention to the fact that there wax n much easier way out of this matter than that adopted by the demo cratic side. Mr. Doutcllc's resolution could have been disposed of liy raising the question of consideration against It. Hut Instead , said ho , by slow degrees this house Is defi nitely getting Itself In a position which will deprive It of the power to consider a question of privilege , In other words of the power to supervise Its own existence. IIo characterized the successive rulings of the chair us an utter absurdity. AT A HIGH TENSION. Mr. Catchlngs then rose to explain the purpose of bringing In the special order. By this time the house was on a strain anil ten sion. Mr. Catchlngs said that the commlt- tco thought the submission of the special order the quickest and most eftectlvo way to glvu the house an opportunity to determine what It would do. "It Is the sumo sort of proceeding that characterizes the lynnhlngs in the south , " Interjected Mr. Heed , sarcastically. "It Is both swift and Inexpensive. " "That remark , " retorted Mr. Catchlngs , "Is unworthy of the gentleman from Maine. Ho belittles his own greatness when ho de scends to the piano of his colleague. " " \Vo did not submit the ruin to the gen tleman from Maine" ( Mr. Doutalte ) , contin ued Mr. Catchlngs , "because we knew In ad vance that It would only give rein to his fan tastic and bedlamite gyrations on the door. " . "I call the gentleman to order , " shouted Mr. Doutcllc , jumping to Ills feet , "and I ask that his words bo taken down. " Mr. Oiithwaltc made some remark which called forth from Mr. Ilotitellc the observa tion that ho would-not take Mr. Outhwalto's Judgment In a horse case. "Vou are making a beautiful exhibition of yourself ain't you"retorted Mr. Otithwaltc. Dy this time the members were pushing down the aisle and crowding about the bel ligerents. There was a streak of humor In the excitement. According to the rule the words objected to were read from the clerk's desk and created a great laugh , Mr. lloutcllo seemed discomfited. Mr. McMillln moved that Mr. Catchings be allowed to proceed In order. On a rising vote It was carried , 157 to 21 , many repub licans voting in the afllrmatlve. MADE THE POINT OF NO QUORUM. Mr. Doutello made the point of no quorum. "There Is no quorum to approve of that sort of thing , " said he angrily. Subsequently , however , at the request of his friends , ho withdraw his point of order and Mr. Calch- Ings was allowed to proceed. IIo had hardly said a dozen words , however , before Mr. lloutcllo was again on his feet. "I have no unkind feeling toward the gen tleman from Maine , " said Mr. Catchings. "In common with many others , I have al ways considered ho was affected with a harmless mania for making on all occasions an exhibition of himself. " "I call the gentleman to order , " Inter rupted Mr. Boutclie , "and demand that liia words bo taken down. The gentleman's words are unparliamentary. lib knows ho must avoid personalities on the Iloor. I ask for a ruling of the chair. " The rule was again read. After some wrangling over the COUTBO of procedure , Mr. Catchlngs was permitted to explain un der the rulo. As ho began Mr. Doutelle at ' tempted to Interrupt him , but the speaker , 'after some heavy rapping of the gavel , sharply ordered him to take his seat. "I can truly say , " began Mr. Catchlngs , "that during my term of service hero of ten years , I have never uttered 'a word that could cause complaint , unless what J have Bald today should bo construed as offensive. " Mr. Catchings then made a humorous speech ; " saying that the democratic victory yesterday made him very amiable. Ho was particularly sarcastic In his reference to Mr. Doutello and the latter's war record , closing with these words : "I have ob served that the gentlemen who boasted the most prowess were the least harmful. ( Laugh ter. ) I never deal In personalltles.nor Im pugn men's motives here. It Is conducive neither to good fellowship nor good manners " ners , "If the gentleman Is going to discuss mo , " Interposed Mr. lioutello at this point , "I want to have something to say , and I will have something to say. " Mr. noutello's suggestion was Ignored. The house voted to allow Mr. CiUclilugu to proceed in order , and the incident closed. am. RICHARDSON THANKED. On motion of Mr. Morse of Massachu setts the thanks of the house were extended to Mr. Richardson of Tennessee for the able and Impartial manner In which ho served as chairman of the house committee of the whole during the long tariff debate. The resolution wan unanimously passed , and evoked applause from both sides of the house. At this point the president's message , transmitting the latest Hawaiian correspond ence , was submitted to the house , and , upon request , was read by the clerk. AH the reading closed , Mr. Doutoile asked If Presi dent Dole's letter In reply to Minister Willis was Included. On receiving a negative answer , Mr. Dou- tello said : "I understand the Dele letter/ haa been' received In the city. " Mr. McCreary , chairman of the committee on foreign affairs , then had read the na- jurlly resolution condemning Urn action of Minister Stevens , and Mr. Illtt hud read the minority report condemning the restoration of the ( iueen. Mr. McCroary then began the opening speech of the Hawaiian debate. The subject appeared to have little Interest for the house and few member : ) remained , Mr. McCreary related In detail some of the Incidents of the' Hawaiian revolution. Ho declared Mr. Slovens' letter of March 8 , 1S9- . plainly showed that bo was plotting to overthrow the government , The revolution , ho contended , was In the Interest of the sugar planters , who wanted annexation In order that they could secure the sugar bounty of American planters under the Me- Klnley law. Is It not strange , ho asked , that of nil the distinguished republicans who defend these proceedings , not one has raised hla volco in'favor of annexation , winch was Ha object ? DLAIR GOES ON RECORD. "Hero Is ono , " Interjected Mr. Ulalr. "Well , I om glad to see one , at least , " said Mr. McCreary. "There was no popular uprising In Ha waii against the quoon. H wit's not a revo lution ; It was n conspiracy. Put amazing as was the proceedings In Hawaii , more this was the most remarkable. " Ingloli.-Two days after the revolution com- mttteoH wcro un their way hero. They ar rived February 2. The Harrison adminis tration was to go out of power March 4.

Of nil I'm treaties ever wit to the eonato amazing still were the proceedings In Wash- this was the moat remarkable , " Ho then read parts of ( lie treaty and said ; "If the queen was rightfully dethroned us the gentlemen on the oilier Hide claim , how can they reconcile that claim with this treaty provision to pay her $20,000 per an num and the | irlnc fw the sum of $150,000 ? ' ' Mr , McCrrary related tlio plan uf which Malli-toa had been restored us king of .Samoa , partly through the Intervention of the Harrison iidmliilstrutinn , and pointed out the Inconsistency of I ho republicans after thut In berating .Mr. Cleveland fur trying to do un act nf Justice to Ulluokulanl.

( Special to The UPC. ) Senator Drawer has not yet given up all hope of securing the passage of liln county option bill. He Is fighting hard fern n favorable report from the senate commit tee. Re-enforcements have been sent for and meetings of local option republicans arc being held In all the principal cities and delegates appointed to present the matter to the legislature and urge upon the republican majority the absolute necessity of keeping faith with the people. The Harsh bill , which provides that the payment of the monthly mulct tax shall act as n bar to prosecutions for Illegal selling for thirty days , Is slowly gaining ground among the republicans In the senate , who see tlio necessity of doing something. Tlio program now Is to first present the Drowcr bill for consideration. Should this fall then the Harsh mulct bill will bo called up and the light forced to an Issue on this measure. It Is conceded that the Harsh bill will re ceive the support of a majority ot the senate committee , and It Is equally certain that It cannot pass that body without democratic support. support.MAY MAY SETTLE THE QUESTION. The republicans so far have endeavored to settle the question among themselves , and still hope to avoid the necessity of call ing for democratic assistance , but should the emergency arise fusion will bo effected. The democrats , however , will assist upon taking up the Schmidt $500 license bill , which received their solid support at the last session. When'this Is disposed of they will bo free to make such combinations us may bo agreed upon. Having supported the Catch bill at the last session , they will hardly feel like withholding their votes from tlio Drower bill , which la Identical In every feature. If forced to choose between the Harsh mulct bill and the Drowcr or Chassell local option bills , a majority of the republicans in the house , led by Chairman Funk , openly declare that they will accept the latter. If the principle of prohibition must bo given up they want a local option law with every ' possible safeguard against the encroachment of the saloon upon prohibition territory , and these arc not contained In the measure drafted by the senator from Creston. PROFESSIpNAL JURORS MUST GO. A delegation of leading citizens from Du- biuiue are here asking for relief from the "professional juror. " They favor the passage - sago of a bill Introduced by Mr. McCann , which prohibits any grand or trial juror from serving more than ono term in two years. Oilier cities of the state are asking for sim ilar legislation. The Wyckoff valued policy Insurance bill , after being amended by striking out the words "farm and personal property , " has been favorably considered by the house and will bo reported for passage. The house committee on suppression of intemperance has been unable to agree on the bill Introduced by Sawyer , allowing the manufacture and sale of alcohol , wine and beer for legal purposes. Senator Croheweg of I'ottawattamie made a long argument yesterday In behalf of the grape growers in favor of this measure. As a result of this discussion a democratic high license bill was Introduced today. It contains the following provisions : The fee is fixed at from $500 to $1,000. All Incor porated towns and cities shall bo compelled to submit the license question to a. vote on a petition signed by two-llths of the legal voters ; also the entire county , exclusive of towns and cities , on the same conditions. At least $200 of the fee Is to go to the gen eral county fund and the balance to the municipal treasury. Grape growers to bo allowed to manufacture free and sell In quantities not less than ono gallon. OTHER MEASURES INTROIJUCED. Tlio house discussed the bill requiring the erection of the United States Hag over school houses. Robinson ( dem. ) said It would cost the state over $100,009. Crow ( rep. ) thought It would Instill patriotic emotions In the children. After further talk the bill went over until tomprrgw. Dills were 'introduced as follows : Dy Davlssou , repealing the law relative to land lord's Hens ; by Horton , empowering Dourd of Railroad Commissioners to order con struction of private crossings on request of land owners ; by Ranck , establishing a state board to formulate rules for embalming and burying the dead ; by Sewers , authorizing mayors In cities of the second class to appoint city marshals ; by St. John requiring mutual assessment lifel nsiiranco companies to print on the margin of their policies the statement that members are liable to assessment ; by Weaver , providing a special tax of one-tenth of a mill on all state property for the Blip- port of the State university ; by Trowln , re quiring railroads to use the interlocking switch at all grade crossings ; by Robinson , a high license and local option bill. The constitutional amendment resubmlt- ting prohibition to the people has been ap proved by the house committee and will probably receive the solid republican voto. The senate reconsidered and finally passed the house bill by Weaver exempting registered pharmacists from jury duty. Seoato bills Introduced by Cheshire regulat ing the manner of running traction engines on public highways ; by Rowen , school suf frage for women ; by Palmer , authorizing railroad companies to purchase bonds of other companies.

WASHINGTON , l-\cb. ' 2. A dispatch In cipher was received at the Navy department this morning from Admiral Denham. It Is tho'ught to be a request for Instructions as to the course to pursue In view of da Gama's threat that he will bombard Rio when ho pleated and without giving notice to foreign commanders In Rio bay. Admiral Denham probably wishes to know whether he Is authorized to demand that da Gama shall give .notice. This dlspa.tch rhust have been pent 'be fore the admiral had.vrccelved mes sage which Secretary Herbert sent to him yesterday lnr ivUlpli It was said : "Rely upon you for further exercise , , ofw'lse - dlscretlon.

When ho receives the dispatch sent yesterday ho will perceive that he has- sufficient authority under that and his general Instructions. International law docs not fix upon the period before commencing a bombardment , when notice must be given , but all civilized nations are agreed that previous notice must he given. The tlmo allowed Is usually forty- eight hours.

Mr. Chillis1 last sickness began with n fainting spell , which seized him while ho was in liis oflleo in the Ledger building , on the afternoon of Janu ary 15. Restoratives were applied with the result that within an hour tlio patient was able to bo taken homo. His physicians is- Bticd u statement that Mr. CliiUls' illness was an attack of vertigo arising from indi gestion , from which ho would soon recover. On the following Saturday night , however , the physicians reluctantly admitted that paralysis of the lower limbs accompanied the attack , which was in reality a .second attack of apoplexy. From that time on there have boon alter natlng periods of hope ami fear as the semi daily bulletins announced i-hanges for the better or worse , until at midnight tonight came the announcement that hopu was cone and death imminent. All tlio nay upon which eaino the attack was spent by Mr. Childs preparing for the Drexel memorial sol-vices held in the Drexel insti tute on Saturday. January " 0. Twice iluring the day Mr , Cliilds went in person to the institute and in person had seen that all necessary arrangement were mado. His en forced iiDscnco from the ceremony worried him profoundly , and to this faot was largely duo the relapse which occurred on the night of Sunday , the 21st. STOUY OF HIS LIFE. Mr. Gcorcc YV. Cliilds was ono of the most ro- marknblo men of modern limes , and one of tlio tew successful men who made a fortune while conducting his business un the basis of the golden rule. Much lias been written about Mr. Olillds1 noble deeds , of his generosity to his employes , of his kindness to their families In beronvo- ment or distress , and the world Is familiar with his efforts to Increase the friendly fooling between the people of England anil America. It Is also pretty well known that Mr. Childs built u fountain to the memory of Hhake- speuroatHtratford-npnn-Avoii ; that ho canted to bo placed In Westminster Abbey memorial window * to Herbert , ( 'owner and Milton. Hut there tire thousands who know very llttlo of Mr. Uhlldb' early life , how lie began nls career an a boy , and how he became , a great and suc- ossful man. fttujley say * that his book-ought o bo read by every American boy , and Ham- HltoiKFUh wrotd tliaUMiv'CliIUta * recollections cannot bo too ofterr'publlshod or too widely circulated. Ho refers to tlio book which Mr. Childs hud recently publUbed at the request of his many friends. Of it Kdlson .says : "Its great charm Is the kind , humanitarian fooling which pervades the whole of it. " Mr. Illalno Bald , "your deserved eulogy , my dear Mr. Childs , is that your life has been passed oven more In making others happy than In promot ing 'your own fortune * by the most honorable means. Vou-iiro among U > o very few among tlio precious class of men , who , with great suc cess , have developed liberality , charity and ustieo. " , Of his boyhood Mr. Cliilds wrote : "It Issuld that I am a successful limn ; If so. I ono my success to Industry , temperance and frugality , 1 was' belt-supporting at an early nxe , In my twelfth year.vhoii school was dis missed for tlio summer 1 took tlio place of er rand boy In a book store at Ilaltlinoro at a salary ot J2 per week und spent the vacation In hard work. And I enjoyed U. I have never been out of employment ; always found some thing to do and was always eager to do It , and 1 think 1 earned every cent of my first money. " Mr. Childs goes on to say that when ho first went to work In 1'liltadclphla ho was .it the store cuuly In the morning , He washed the pavement and put things in order before breakfast. In winter ho made the lire and swept the store. He attended auc tion Kales of hooks on evenings , and In a few months ho was familiar with the literatim ) of the day. He curried his own bundles , brought packages of books on a wheelbarrow to tlio store , and ho says that today Im has never outgrown the wholesome habit of dolnir things directly and In order. lie would as lief carry a bundle up Chestnut street from the Ledger ollice as ho would when a boy. Young Childs entered the United States navy at the ago of 13 , and remained fifteen months ut Norfolk. Hut ho didn't like it and entered a nook store In Philadelphia , whore ho learned the business. Hero no mudo tlio acquaintance of book buyers and publishers and laid tlio foundation for u lifelong friend ship with such men as the Harpers. Llppln- cotts , I'utnams , Tlcknnm. Fields , Appletons and others. Hy the tlmo ho was 18 ho had saved money enough to go Into business for himself and ho opened a modest store In the Ledger building. Even In those early days ho was heard to say : "Porno day I shall own the 1'ubllc Ledger.1' Mr. Chillis' first Important business ventures were with the bank pub lishing firm of Peterson & L'o. , afterward styled Cliilds & I'otor.-on. Ills first great hit was the publication of Dr. Kane's A re lie Exploration. Tlio venerable experts In the uuslness predicted fallnru for young Chillis , but tlio lad was mine than saga- clous ho was wise. IIo knew that Philadel phia had sent Dr. Kane ( o tlio Arctic reglou-i to search for the remains of the I'rankllli party and ho wasshoro that overynocly would want to read about that fearful senicb umld tlio ter rors of tlio north pole. The largest Now York publishing lionso only gave a .small order for the hook , hut In a few days they sent for ft.UUO copies , within a year tlio llrru paid Dr. Kane a copyright of nearly JTO.uuo. The doctor warned to wrlto only a scientlllc account of till ! expedition In search nf Sir John I'Yanldln , hut Mr. Chlldf * persuaded him to make It a popular narrative. Herein .Mr. Cliilds showed nls good Judgment and knowledge of what the public w-iiiti'd to tend , Later on Mr. Childs made another successful venture. Kvorybody wits talking iiuiiu Car son Hrownlow , llio patriotic lixlillng parson of ICast Tennessee. Without heeding tlio advice of conservative old fugles In the business , young t'hllds went ahead and published the book. Tlio advance sale was fiO.uim copies , bu- foio a single volume had been Issued. " 1'iiter- sun's Familiar Science" was another popular book and a quarter of a million copies were sold by Air. Cnlld'ii linn , In 1HH3 Mr. Cliilds ictlred from the publish ing biislncisand purchased the I'ubllc Ledger. This was the druuiu uf his youth and It was fully icall/ed. At that tlmo tlio war ran wlilln paper up to exorbitant figures , Thu paper ulune In many of tl.o dallies cost moie tnan they sold for when printed. Tliopilco of the Ledger had bocn a penny. It Had a large ad vertising patronage , yul It was losing nt tlio rain of SlfiU.UOOa year. Against the advice of experienced Journalists Mr. ( 'mills doubled the priceof HID paper und advanced the ad- vcrliilm : rates to a profitable Ihtuiu. There was an Instant and nut Inconsiderable falling olT of palromigo , Inn Uio Ledger was an esfi- blNinl instilutlon , havlrn ; for twenty years been the ivcognl/cd medium of communica tion between employer- , and employed , be tween buyers and willois , landloids and tenants , bjiuavcd families ami I heir frit-lulu , To many people It was a necessity. Tlio luul- ncs-s Hint was temporarily lou boon came buck again , and at the end of a month tlio public was reconciled to the change , and from that day to this ihu cliculatiun and advertis ing have Increased , After advancing iho price of his paper and advertising Mr. t'nllds wrought another revo lution by excluding from tliu advertising col- uiium all adMirtUuinunts that might bo of fensive to good morals ; In short , ho made the paper a fumlly journal. This again proved Mr. Child's sagacity. It gained the conildenco of the best people.

Governor Wertz has received a formal opinion from Attor ney General Stockton upon the advisability of quo warranto proceedings In the Now Jersey senatorial deadlock. The attorney general says he has no doubt of the juris diction of the supreme court where there are two conflicting , legislatures , each claiming a right to exercise legislative functions , to determine by which legislative authority can bo used. The opinion quotes McCreary and Gush ing from Elllott.debates on the federal con stitution and other authorities and says : "The supreme court has thus partially de cided that the senate of Now Jersy , like the senate of the United States Is a perma nent , steadfast , continuous body , always ex isting with two-thirds of Its members holdIng - Ing over. Mr. McCreary dcclarps that In such cases the newly elected members , al though a majority , must attach themselves to the hold-over members and submit their credentials to the existing body. "Tho question which of the two bodies claiming to bo the sonata of New Jersey should bo recognized by the court will In evitably at no distant day bo presented to the supreme court and that court will not hesitate to dccldo the question when prop erly presented. " Governor Wertz , after reading the opin ion , saidVhllo : I will probably for the tlmo being concur In the attorney general's suggestions as to the advisability of the Immediate Institution of quo warranto pro- ceilings , I Khali , unless -the question au to which Is the constitutional senate Is soon brought before the court In some other way , Insist that proceedings by quo warranto bo Instituted.
