The Leuson house a few days agj in
troduced and passed a ixncurreut reso

But as the resolution was "concurrent"
it required the action of the senate to

refuses to recognize the Dcnson house,
also its resolution and it came to
naught. The suua'e Saturday adjourned
to Monday. There is a belief that if all
the members were prepared far that mo
tion acd fully understood it ,it woald not
have passed and that a motion of liual ad
journment would. It is contended that
tbe presiding otiicer, who wa'its to keep
