to the President of the Senate, with a
message saying that he had so signed
it. the bill and message reaching the
President's desk before the adjourn
ment of said Senate ; but that in the
face ot these facts, and the further fact
that when it was observed that he was
about to adjourn the Senate without

Senator arose at his desk and called his
attention to the fact that ihe bill was
awaiting his signature, and requesting
him to affix such signature before ad
journing the Senate, the Senate." was
adjourned by the President without
