Senator Qojiy continued: "Th" Dmu-
ocrats liavo a ma.iarity of three, I
think, over the Kinublloan and npu-
lists in the senate. Whether this ma
jority can bo OVtroomt or not is a (pies
turn. I introduced th" amnumentl
without oontultation with other Repub

thing about them, aud can't say
wi.ether they will vnte for the
amendments or not. Mv object, ot

The senator laughed Imartily over
the last remark. The excellent condi
