Whereat, There are certain members
of this joint convention in doubt as to

without the signature of the de facto

are convened, and
IThereas, There is general desire
among the members to have the con
struction of the honorable supreme
court upon the matter; therefore oe it

cle V, of the constitution, as follows: -Whereas,
a question has arisen as to
the constitutional righ of this joint con
vention to proceed with the trial of ceri
tain contests for the several executive
offices named in section 1, article V, of
the constitution of Nebraska without

1. Where a contest is pending before
this joint convention convened in the
manner and for the purpose aforesaid,
for the office of governor of the state of
Nebraska, and the contestee therefor
is the acting or de facto governor of the
state, is it necessary to the constitution
ality or validity ot the resolution there
fore named in section 77, chapter 28, of
the compiled statutes, that such resolu
tion shall first be signed or approved
under section 15, article V, of the con

2. If such resolution should be pre

the statutes," and he should withhold
such resolution or veto the same, would

S that fact, by a majority vote have the
legal power to proceed and determine
said contest under snob resolution? .
8. Where the office of lieutenant
governor Is also being contested before
this joint convention as provided by the
constitution and statutes of this state,
would it be necessary to the legality of
the prooedcing of this joint convention,
that the resolution for a joint conven
tion to try the contested election for
said office at the same time that the
contest for the office of governor is to
be tried, should be presented to , the
acting or de facto lieutenant governor
for his signature, and If the de facto

it be adopted and also the previous
question. The motion was seconded by
about half of the members present.
Mr. Howe tried to talk against the reso
lution ana in lavor or it at the same,
and said he was in favor of leaving off
a part of it as it would no doubt be con
sidered improper by the supreme court.
In response to repeated calls for the
question, the speaker decided that all
remarks were out of order, and espe
cially one man who insisted that it took
a two-thirds vote to carry the previous
The question was put, and the speak
er being in doubt, the roll was called
and resulted iu 81 for and 51 against
the previous question. It was there
fore carried by a good majority.
It was then moved, seconded and car
ried unanimously to adopt the resolu
tion as read. Pandemonium followed.
Somebody finally moved to adjourn,
but as there was a committee to appoint
the speaker would not entertain the
Church Howe was seen frantically
gesticulating in his place, and in a mo
ment of comparative calm, said he had
a resolution to offer. The speaker said
he was out of order but he insisted on
Resolved, That we request the chap
lain to offer a prayer of thanks to
Almighty God that we a last recognize
the laws as found upon our statute
books. The speaker ruled it out of
order but Mr. Howe was bound to be
funny or die in the attempt. And amid
all kinds of racket which would have
disgraced Babel, Howe's melodious
voice was heard insisting on the resolu
tion. An A liance member said he was
glad to see that the gentleman from
iiemaha was willing to come to the
mourners bench. The speaker finally
made his gavel heard and restored
something like order.
Schrader of Logan, chairman, and
Taylor of Johnson, and Chapeck of
uougias were appointed committee to
consult with the supreme court.
It was then moved and carried that
the joint convention take a recess till
2 p. ra. to give the committee a chance
to make their report. t
The joint convention was called to
order and after roll call Mr. Schrader
offered the following resolution:
Whereas, ,Tho joint convention is

senate and house of representatives as

On motion of Mr. Schrader the reso

by different members who thought it

counsel to make said arguments and
that the hour of three P. M. be set aside
for hearing said arguments and that
this convention take a recess until 10
A. M. tomorrow. CD. Shradeb,
It was moved and carried that the
report be accepted as read and a recess
taken in accordance. Every body then
tried to hear the pleas before the su
xhe supreme court room was crowded
to suffocation and all were intensely
interested in the proceedings as was
shown by the silence and close atten
tion. The attorneys who argued the
case were Walter J. Lamb. HTH. Wil
son and Chas. H. Hall of Lincoln; Gen.
Cowan of Omaha and Judge Allen of
Madison. As the lawyers were limited
as to time, the pleas were all made by
5 o'clock. Judge H. Maxwell said that
they all realized the value of time in
this matter and their decision would be
handed down just as soon as possible,
put ne was unable to state the exact
time. , ,
The court then adjourned till ft o'clock
in the morning.
The house waa called to order at 10
o'clock, and after prayer and roll call
Mr. Taylor of Johnson moved that a
recess be taken till 11 o'clock, as they
had good reason to believe that the de
cision of the supreme court would be
handed in by that time. The motion
was amended to 2 o'clock and carried.
The joint convention called to order
at 2 o'clock, and alter roil call the com
mittee which was appointed to confer
with the supreme court was asked to
make their report. Before the report
was made a resolution was offered by

Every man In the house seemed
ready to speak on the resolution and a
general fire of words followed. A mo
tion was made to postpone the resolu
tion, which after a heated discussion,
was lost. The vote was then taken oa
the adoption of the resolution, which
was decided in the negative, and the
commitee requested to make a verbal
report of the decision of the supreme
Mr. Schrader, chairmain of the com
mittee, then rose and said that he did
not hear all of the opinion of the court,
but thought he had the gist of it. It was
that the joint convention was unlawful
and could not transact any business;
that the signature of the de facto gov
ernor and the lieutenant governor
ought to appear on all bills and on the
concurrent resolution, the fact of these
officers being parties in the contest does
not matter. The resolution must be
read three times, and in fact everything
must be done over again. A motion
was then made and caned that the joint
convention adjourn sine die.
The members of the senate then re
tired and the speaker celled the house
