Mr. Frick moved that .Yr. Caldwell he admitt

The question elicited a apirilvd ami lengthy
discunsion in which a number of tho mcuuets
Mr. Collin:; ofl.ui-rue claimed that I.u.erne
had as good a l ight to select a Senatorial Delcale

M. Mercur thought thai the fa-'tn IaUd by I'uu

to one thcl m-.ttt than Columbia; and she had

seutativd. 1 here appeis to Iiu cumlicting state
ineiits. Tho prim wy muetiugs of Luzerne did
not appoint their Senatoiiil Delegalcs but Dele
gated to thu Standing Cotninittcu the power to ap.
point. This Convention was not going to decide
whether or not they had given too much power to
that Standing Committee. They have acted
They have given their man as Senatorial Delegate
Columbia has presented her man and it was now
for the Convention to chouse which was entitled
to a eat. For the sake e-f peace and harmony, for
six years Luzerne has right ol appointing a Sen
atorial D.dejte io Columbia county, What righ
lias Columbia co. to claim the privilege forercr,
if sho has it much lunger -die will dim it byright
of limitation, an.l siy to L'ucrne, "you have no
right you have conoedcJ it lo hk lor six years;
and we intend lo keep it." Out ol'common justice
Luz M-.ie should have tho man j and Mr. Mercur.
would therefore mvu lo amend by striking out

Mr. Flick said that the Convention uf Luzerne
had n-aninated iu Il.tprcaseiilive Delegates to thi
Coiiveiition, but InJ n -t i,c;itiuued a Senatorial
