as h'1 faced the Mouse, gavel in hand.

Speaker Henderson soon yielded the

Sptaker. As the latter took the chair
the members broke into applause in

as nnuh a compliment to the retiring
Speaker as to Mr. Cannon. Amid in
tense sib nee, Mr. Payne, the majority
leader, then arose and offered the fol
lrwing resolution of thanks of the re
tiring Speaker:
"Ib'.-ohcd. That the thanks of this
Hom-e are p-.-t seated to the Hon. David
M. Henderson, Speaker of the House of
Hcprcsentativfs for the able, impar
tial and dignified manner in which he
h;s presided nver its deliberations and
performed the nrduous and important
duties of the chair during the present
term of Congress."
As the reading was concluded Mr.
Cochran. Democrat, of .Missouri, was
on his feet demanding recognition, but
th chair ruled that Mr. Payne was en
titled to the floor. The majority leader
fated tho rvlnority as he announced
that le" lor.sideie ! it a high honor and
privilege to be permitted to offer this
rr.-olut!:n. pointing out that, it was uot
the first thuo thai such a resolution
had come from the majority side. He

that trembled at fiist but grew grad

his words rans out, he delivered what perhaps the most touchingly hu

man to his old position as chairman
of the caur-us. This is a permanent
place and assures him the occupancy
of the Democratic conference room,
one of the most commodious and best
located committee rooms in the Sen
ate and of the capitol. He made a
brief speech in assuming the chair, and
the conference then proceeded to other
business. There were present 23 of the
33 Democratic Senators. Senator Gor
man's nomination as chairman was
suggested by Senator Bacon, and there
was no opposition to his selection, lu
taking the (hair, he thanked the Sen
ators for the honor conferred, but did
not make an extended speech. The
remaining time of the session was de
voted largely to the discussion of the
present situation in the Senate and
the necessity for Democratic harmony
and unity of action. There was a gen
eral feeling that the vacancies caused
by the retirement of Democratic Sen
ators front committtees which have
to deal with questions before he pres
ent call -session should be tilled, and
it va? decided that the designation o
the members of these committees
should h? made by a steering commit

should later be ratified by the caucus.
The steering committee for the past,
Congress has numbered only 7 mem
bers, hut Senatov Gorman requested
that the number should be increased to
0. which was the number in the days
of his previous chairmanship, pnd this
increase was decided upon.

j chapter 4. laws cf l&ol. came up as
! the special order at noon. Section 4,
providing fcr township high schools
was stricken out -ectlon & was ihv
cussed. Mr. Woodard said" public edii
cation was not a duty of the State to
the child, but was the duty -of the
State to itself as a necessary safe
guard to its tfwn preservation. He ad
vocated an amendment that the sec
tion providing for allotment by the
county boards pro rata shall not apply j
district levying a special tax. Mr.
Woodard said this section was unjust.
Mr. Webb said that it was a double
tax. For instance Asheville paid $20,
000 of the $33,000 used for Buncombe
rural schools and of this $20,000 Ashe
ville got back less than $3,000 for its
graded schools. If the Asheville
schools had not borrowed money its
term would have been two months'
shorter than the rural schools that
ran eight months. Thjs section allowed
county boards to pay for school
houses, the superintendent's salary.
