At 1:25 o'clock Secretary of State Os

and announced that the law provided
that he should lay before tho house a

Osborne to preside, and other members
agreed with him.
Mr. Dunsmore. the PoDulist candi
date for speaker said that there was no
precedent to be found in the state to
settle questions that will be presented
in this organization. Somebody, he
said, must pass on these questions. In
order to arrive at a preliminary organ

the house pending a regular organiza

would object to the name of
A.- Campbell of Doniphan countv
