floor and thc president ascended to the chair.
The report of the committee of Iho ivholo
was made through the chairman , Senator
Senator Swltzler moved that the report of
the committee of the whole ho adopted. Car
The resolution wns ngnln read and the
chnlr announced that the same having been
read a third time , the question was should
the bill now p.iss ,
The yeas nnd nays wcro demanded.
Senator Collins explained tils tote. The
constitution provided that all bills .should bo
wont to tbo governor for his signature ;
thnt that oftlcinl hnd live dn.rs for tlio exclu
sive purpose of considciing those bills before
returning them to the legislature. In the or
dinary course of business , .sufllclent time
would not ho nllnuml him In which to con
sider this hill and return It either with or
without his approval. Hence hn could not
net on this measure In the tlmo which ob
tained before the date set for the
hearing of the contest. If lie
should return the resolution without
his signature on the day after the date set
for the hearing of the contest , It would be
come a law. The state would then have n
Jaw on Its stntuto hooks providing for a con
test , wHcn no such contest could take place.
The senator was unwilling to throw away an
opportunity to hoar a contest which had been
considered advisable. If the Independents
did an1 , thlnir of the kind thov would not oily
K o Into tlio hole but would nlso draw the bole
i n after them. The best way to do was to
vote down the resolution nnd begin do novo.
The roll cnll was ordered. After It had
been made , nnd before the result xvns an
nounced , Senator I'oynter moved thnt the
resolution be recommitted to the committee
of the whole.
Sonatdr Swltzlor raised tbo point of order
that no business could ho transuded before
the result of the vote wns announced.
The chair considered the point for n few
moments , the while burying himself In the
hlua book containing the rules of the senate ,
IIo nt length asked the secretary

Senator Swltzlor ngaln rose to his fcot and
stated that the chair had overlooked the fact
that the rule contemplated a resolution
originating in the senate. The rule did not
cover the point in controversy. The resolu
tion under consideration hud originated In
The chair again deliberated. IIo rend the
rule again and derided that in tbo absence of
a rule bearing directly on the case ho would
hold tlwt the ruling already given would
Btnnd , and that ho would entertain Senator
Povnter's ' motion.
ik-untor Kclper rose tonpoint of order.
Tlio rulu in question required the motion to
recommit to bo made before the declaring
of the vote on the resolution. The declara
tion of the voto.lt wns tiuo , had not been
made , hut the vote had actually been com
pleted , which was In eflect n declaration.
The chnlr would not recede from his posi
Sonntor Poyntor said the reason ho had
moved to recommit was because the senate
did not have timu to amend the resolution
and send It to the governor In time to hnvo It
signed before the time set for the contest.
If the resolution should pass as It then stood
It would deny rights to men who hnd
sought this contest mid who wcro entitled
to n , hearing. These men had spent their
money In this matter and they ought not to
have spout It In vain. If the senate refused
to hoar the case It would net Justus n court of
justice would In saying nfter having read the
papers , "You have no cnso , " und ttien take
and thrbw the papers outof court. There was I
no Justice In such a move. The senate know
nothing about this case save what It had
rend In the papers , That wns not testimony. |
They did not Know what evidence these con-
tcstecs hnd. It was through an unforeseen
necfilent that thov did not have tlmo at this
Ute hour to sot the matter right
Senator Switzler naked that the chair declare -
clare the result of tno voto. 0If
Senator Kelpcrsatd ho wanted to know If
thu senator ( Poyntcr ) was so anxious to re
the resolution recommitted for nt
\ \ hy ho had not so moved when the resolu
tion wns before the committee ! on head
Senator Poyntor said tlio reason ho had
not done so was because at the tlmo he was
In the chair and could not preside and make
n motion ut tbo same time.
The Independent lobbyists wno were ox-
pcrlench K some of the pangs of misery made
an attempt to fcot up a laugh ut tha expense
of Senator ICoiper , but were knocked out by
the hitter's luiaty reply to Senutor I'oyutcr.
In substance tno reply \\as that If the sen
ator from Uoono wanted a ri-comnilttiiicnt
very badly ho could easily have retired from
the chair. und called some other
person to preside. IIo hnd seen such lorn
thing done ( several times. If these
people bad IKJOII victims of nn unforscon ac
cident It wns their own fault , und they
should bear tne consequences of the slip.
Senator Collins snld ho was In favor of de
ciding the contest on its merits. That was
why ho contended the contest should bo car- :
lied out strictly under the requirements arof
the constitution , That was why hu was now
In fnvor of voting down the measure , intro
ducing another de uovo which would bo do-
jirlvod of verbiage. The fact that the senate
had taken a vote upon the mutter coald bo
tnkbn as evidence In the court.
Senator I'pjlcston 01 Lancaster , who had
snld nothing during the debate , moved that
the motion to recommit bo Inld on the table.
The yeas and nays were called for , and
while the vote was bolug taken Senator
Dysart explained his vote. Some of tbo
members or thu senate , ho said , wcro great
constitutional lawyers. In the earlier part
of the session there was scarcely nnyttiliiK
that could bo done , because It was nearly all
unconstitutional. Now if they wished to lay
claim to he lenders on a constitutional basis ,
why didn't they stand by tbo constitu
tion. IIo dldu't believe all tnat ; tltuis
said hy these who are talking
about the constitution. What they really
wanted to do was to cvado the constitution.
The senate ought to hoar the cou est bounuso
It had been begun In u legal wanner , and I be
cause It hnd heon supported by the people ,
IIo believed that any man on tha lloor ot the
senate who would vote to knoclc out the reso
lution would stand condemned by hl con
stituents. IIo wanted the men who were
leading to have more than n technicality to
change , their minds ou the subject.
Senator Uandall of 1'uolpi said that I the
resolution was an Important ono to thotn.
The demands of thdso who asked for the contest -
test worn Just. They wore Just under the
constitution , acd the senate should answer
the demands. JIo voted no.
The roll call proceeded , and when Taylor's
nnmo nas reached that gentleman was not In
his sent ,
Sonntor Stevens moved a call of the house.
Senator Swltrler raised the point of order
thnt no business uns allowable now save the
continuance ot the call.
Thu vote to lay on tbo table was finally
taxcu , and carried , ns follows :
Yens lirmvii , Chrlstoflorson , Collins ,

Senator Swltrler then culled upon the chair
to announce the vote , which had not been an
nounced , on the motion that the resolution
Senator 1'oyntor moved again to recommit
Senntot Swltrlcr Insisted upon his right to
bu heard lifter having been recognized by the
chair , nnd again asked for the vote which
had not iicen announced.
The uhnlr said that the motion made
by the senator from Hoono was onu
thnt ho could entertain without
failing to respect the rights of the senator
ftom Douglas. IIo had rvi-ognircd the latter ,
but that did not Inturfcru with his listening
to thugontlcmaa from Hoono for a moment.
He then said that thu vote on ( ho passage of
the resolution was 11 to 1'J.
Senator Swltzlor tnovcd to adjourn.

Senator Poyntor Kven if I believed there
was nothing In the contest I would have no
light to do anything to prevent Its taking
pl.ico. The constitution says that the con
test shall tnko nlace , and thnt Is enough for
mo. Mr. Collins says that the resolution
should bo brought up again. I don't know

LINCOLN * , Nob. , Fob. 11. [ Special Tele
gram to TUB Bnn.1 Tonight the dissatis
faction of the independents over their defeat
led to the criticism of absent senators , as |
well as of these who had voted with the Boyd
men. As n consequence , It Is now stated on
the authority of some of the sorer alliance
people that another contest resolution
will bo introduced , probably tomorrow , The
resolution will originate in the senate nnd bo
aimed so ns to clvo Senators Horn , Stnrbuck ,
KoonU and Wilson , who wore cither absent
or paired , nehanco to show their hands more
satisfactorily than they have thus far shown
them. It Is also stated that the measure will

The republican executive ollleers , it Is snld ,
nro to bo excluded . fioin thu contest ,
with the hope of securing the
votes of republican senators nnd
representatives for the passage of the reso
lution. It is held that the manner in which
it is suggested to frame the proposed resolu
tion deprives it of the appearance of n con
current measure , thus doing away with the
' ' '
triple rcnoing in each house ; and enabling1 it
to be passed immediately.

Senator Moore said there was a bill on the
subject as that contained In the resolu 1d
tion before congress at the present time and
ho was lacking lit Information as to how the
resolution under consideration would affect
that bill nnd hoped somn senator would en
lighten him. The senator hold in his hand a
newspaper clipping which ho said was a
copy of the bill now in congress.
SenatorS'vitzler said that If the gentleman
would bund him the clipping ho would glvo
the Information desired. He said that the :
bill before congress did not contem
plate foreclosing the mortgage of the
of the government upon the property of the
Union Pucitic , simply because the latter had
defaulted. It proposed to let the time so
and then take possession , buying up ho
bonds of the company and paying the out
standing Indebtedness of the road. The
mortgage did not become duo until ISJ5 mla
ISIKi and It was t.ot pcrtlnunt now to make n
move to foreclose. Hatbcr a resolution should
bo framed which should bo m nccordnnco .
with the bill How before congress.
Senator Ki'ipor said it would bo better to
pass the resolution , oven in the light of what
hnd been said against it. The Union Puciilo
had not compiled with the terms of its con
tracts or Its grants , The senate ought to talco
action on the subject because of thu manner
In which the road had violated every obliga
tion. Senator Ho.ir had said that from the I
tlmo ot Its Incention every step hud been I
attoned with fraud and that ho hud
seen high-minded Judges driven from
the courts by the threat of Impeachment.
The road bad Justified the statement that It

perfidy. It had mortgaged Its lands , nnd
while the settlers of the state , sufferers from

Senator Swltzlor said the lnttirc.sU of the
United States would bo Impaired if the bill

and the nudnclty of tbo timnngcincnt greater

The senator from Douglas admitted the
truth of all the senator from I'lcrcoluul snld ,
notwithstanding that tbo resolution would bo
