Mr. DONNELLY, (Philadelphia,) asked and
obtained leave to present a minority report from
the committee on the contested seat of Mr.
W/LDET ; which was read as follows :
The undersigned, being a minority of the.
committee chosen to try the contested election
case from the Twelfth Legislative district, of
the city of Philadelphia, respectfully reports—
That, by the act of the seventh of March,
one thousand eight hundred and forty-three,
relative to elections in the City of Philadelphia,
it is plainly stated that the qualified electors of
the city of Philadelphia shall vote for Governor,
Senators, and members of the_House of Repre
sentatives, and members of Congress, by deliv
ering to the proper officers, one written or
printed ticket, designating not only the name
of the officer voted for, but also the office.—
There is no such office as "Assembly." It is
"House of Representatives ;" and being so
designated by the statute, as well as the
Constitution, it is, to say the best of it, a ques
tion whether the designation should not be
strictly followed. I admit, that heretofore
committees, in the trial of contested elections;
have exercised a discretionary power, which
enabled them to look more to the intention of
the voter thau to the manner in which the
tickets are printed. But it may well be asked
whether this state of things should longer con
tinue. Acts of Assembly mean something or
nothing. If they disregard certain things to
tie done, they should be strictly followed; and
those who choose to pursue their own opinions
must incur the responsibility.
The undersigned, therefore, in view of the
fact that the majority of the committee have
decided that the designation of the office voted
for by the use of the word " Assembly," is
good under the Constitution, and the statute
enacted under it, respectfully submits that it
behooves the present Legislature to enact such
declaratory provision as will hereafter prevent
any question being raised as to the meaning of
the fundamental and statute law of the Com
