Wllapn, who first voted for tho bill,
later changed his ballot so that he
mlgljt have tlo right to movo a re-
corisfderatlon. This mado tbe voto
as legally announced, 51 to 47. As
a matter of 'fact', however, only ' 50
r bill; apd 48 wcreln favor of It. '
'- 'The' ballot, "was" 'Wen ditrlng the
morning session after a stormy do-
- bate. In the' attdrhbon the" bill was
ngaln brought tup 'and again trampled
upon by. a neat trick of its oppon
ents. The supporters of tho measure
had hoped 'that they might bo able
to securo a change of heart on the
part of the necoBsary.ono or two mom-:
bers during the -weolc-ond recess. For
that reason Wilson voted n'galnBt the
kblll In order that ho might legally
move to Reconsider It In cafco Its sup
" porters' should bo able to miiBter the
additional votes by Monday.
Approclntlng tho scheme of tho
friondB of the moasuro, tho opposi
tion, in tho person of Reprosontatlyp
Caa;?, moved early. In tho afternoon
session to reconsider tho morning
vote. Wlison ,nnd others engaged In
a hot debate, but without any effect
on tbe legislators. Tho movo to re
consider failed to pass and tho bill
was once more pronounced officially
' dead. By 'this action the' opponents
of the bill sought to prevent a pos
sible successful reconsideration Mon
day. Effort Not Successful.
By a curious blunder tho .effort of
Representative Cqso to; finally kill tho
bill waB'wIth'pVtsucctiBand tho mAt
. te'r'now stadds exaptly whoro It did
at tho, closp of the morning session
yesterday. Acting on tho theory that
a motion ' to reconsider can bo made
but onco RQpfesentatiyp Case maflo
this motion ,and .the opponents of the
bill nt "once vbted it, down?' As a mat-
f -tor & fact there ia tjo. limit to- tho
; number! of times a motion to reconi
1 slder can bo' '. made, but after; , the
motion carries the -question can bo
.recompiended but once. What Rop
resentatiyo Case should - have done
after making tho motion to reconsider
was' to move-that that motion bo
laid on tlie nablol- V6n'J this was

and ' the measure would: bo nally
