with spectators. It was expected that

fering from the first, though it created a
big surprise as Speaker Moores, of the
bouse, changed bis vote from Dolph to
Williams and Senator Hobson, of Marion
county, changed from Dolph to Judge
Waldo. The vote was as follows:
Dolph, 39; Williams, 29, Hare 10; Raley,

a special session. It is expected though
that a compromise candidate will be
agreed upon who can be elected.
