Full text of "Register and manual - State of Connecticut"

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

PREFACE. 



The vote on the proposed constitutional amendment in the 
form of a revision of the Constitution, a page near the end of 
the book giving the names and duties of the Attorneys-General 
of the State, a number of commissions created by the General 
Assembly for 1907, and a few minor additions are the special 
features of the Connecticut State Register and Manual for 
1908. The other matter has received the usual careful and 
thorough revision, no effort being spared to maintain the high 
character and reputation of the volume. 

It is the desire of those entrusted with its compilation that 
every citizen of Connecticut shall feel a just pride in the 
Register, and contribute to its improvement as changes sug- 
gest themselves. Its excellence is largely due to the hundreds 
who assist in the work and whose aid is always gratefully 
acknowledged. 

THEODORE BODENWEIN, 

Secretary.

THE CAPITOL. 



In 187 1 the General Assembly appointed a commission to con- 
tract for and fully complete a Capitol building in Hartford, and 
appropriated five hundred thousand dollars, authorizing the city 
of Hartford to appropriate and issue bonds to the extent of one 
million dollars for the same purpose. 

The commission accepted the present site from the city of 
Hartford, and the plan of Mr. R. M. Upjohn of New York as 
a design for the building. 

In 1873 the plan was changed to a design for the present fire- 
proof building, and five hundred thousand dollars additional 
appropriated by the State. A new commission was also ap- 
pointed. In 1875 this was supplemented by a further and final 
appropriation of one million dollars. 

The General Assembly opened its first regular session in the 
building in January, 1879, but it was not fully completed until 
■some months later. 

The entire cost, including heating and ventilating apparatus 
and such statuary as was placed at the time of erection, was 
$2,532,524-43, and the cost of the furniture was about one hun- 
dred thousand dollars more. 

The rooms used for offices and by committees are numbered 
from I to 96. The Senate Chamber and Representatives' Hall, 
on the second floor, and the State Library, on the third floor, 
are not numbered. 

The dimensions are as follows:

DEOLABATION OF INDEPENDENOE. 
IN CONGRESS, 

July 4. i776. 



THE UNANIMOUS DECLARATION 

or THB 

THIRTEEN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. 



When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary 
for one people to dissolve the political bands which have con- 
nected them with another, and to assume, among the powers 
of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws 
of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to 
the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the 
causes which impel them to the separation. 

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are 
created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with 
certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, 
and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, 
governments are instituted among men, deriving their just 
powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any 
form^ of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is 
the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute 
a new government, laying its foundation on such principles, 
and organizing its powers in such form as to them shall seem 
most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, 
indeed, will dictate, that governments long established should 
not be changed for light and transient causes ; and accordingly 
all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to 
suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by 
abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when 
a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the 
same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absoVwlt 
despotism, it is their rigrht, it is their duty, to throw off sudv 



I8 DBCLASATIOK OF INDBRNDBWCl. 

Rovemment, and to provide new guards for their futtire 
sectsrity. Stsch has been the patient stsfferance of these Colo- 
nies, and stsch is now the necessity which constrains diem to 
alter their former systems of ^vcmment. The history of the 
present KinR of Great Britain is a histoiy of repeated injuries 
and usurpations, all having: in direct object the establishment 
of an absolute tyranny over these States. To prove this, let 
fLCts be submitted to a candid world. 

He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and 
necessary for the public good. 

He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate 
and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation 
till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he 
has utterly neglected to attend to them. 

He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation 
of large districts of people, unless those people would relin- 
quish the right of representation in the legislature, a right 
inestimable to them, and formidable to tyrants only. 

He has called together Icgis'lative bodies at places unusual, 
uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public 
records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance 
with his measures. 

He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for op- 
posing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the 
people. 

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to 
cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers* 
incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large 
for their exercise; the State remaining, in the mean time, ex- 
posed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and con- 
vulsions within. 

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these 
States ; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization 
of foreigners ; refusing to pass others to encourage their migra- 
tion hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of 
lands. 

He has obstructed the administration of justice by refustn^ 
his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers. 

He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the 
tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their 
salaries. 

He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither 
swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their sub- 
stance. 

He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies, 
without the consent of our legislatures. 

He has affected to render the military independent of rnd 
•uperior to the civil power.

For sospending our own legislatures, and declaring them-

He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of 
his protection, and waging war against us. 

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our 
towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. 

He is, at this time, transporting large armies of foreign 
mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation, and 
tyranny, already begun, with circumstances of cruelty and per- 
fidy, scarcely parallded in the most barbarous ages, and totally 
unworthy the head of a civilized nation. 

He has constrained our fellow-citizens, taken captive on the 
hii^ seas, to bear arms against their country, to become 
the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall them- 
seTvea by their hands. 

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has 
endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontier^ the 
merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare is an 
undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes, and conditions. 

In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for 
redress in the most humble terms : our repeated petitions have 
been answered only by r^eated injury. A prince whose diar- 
acter is thus marked iy every act which may define a tyrant, is 
unfit to be the ruler of a free people. 

Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British 
bfftduren. We have warned them, from time to time, of 



KCLASATION OF INDBFININENCE. 



attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable juris- 
diction over us. We have reminded them of the circom- 
stances of our emigration and settlement here. We have ap- 
pealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have 
conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow 
these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our con- 
nexions and correspondence. They, too, have been deaf to 
the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, 
acquiesce in the necessity which denounces our separation and 
hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, 
in peace, friends. 

We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of 
America, in General Congress assembled, appealing to the 
Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, 
do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of 
these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare. That these United 
Colonies are, and of right ought to be, fret and independeni 
States; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British 
crown, and that all political connexion between them and the 
State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved; 
and that as free and independent States, they have full power 
to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establi^ com- 
merce, and to do all other acts and things which independent 
States may of right do. And for the support of this dedaim- 
tion, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Pro- 
vidence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our 
fortunes, and our sacred honor.

raised immediately: 

Committee to wait upon the retiring Governor and inquire 
if he has any communication to make to the General As- 
sembly. 

Committee on Canvass of Vote for State Officers. 

THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. 

The House of Representatives must be called to order by 
the Speaker* of the preceding House, or by the senior mem- 
ber* of any previous House. After prayer by the Chaplain the 
roll is called by the Chief Clerk in the Secretary's office, and 
the oath* administered to those answering, by the person pre- 
siding. Members not answering to their names should, upon 
their first appearance, inform the Speaker and take the oath. 

The chairman will then appoint two temporary clerks and 
four temporary tellers. The House will next proceed to bal- 
lot for Speaker. Upon the declaration of the result, a com- 
mittee of tw'O should be appointed to inform the Speaker of 
his election. 

The Speaker, upon assuming his duties and taking the 
oath of office, administered by the chairman, will call for bal- 
lots for Clerk. 

The Clerk, having been duly elected and sworn, the House 
will pass resolutions appointing an Assistant Gerk, a Chap- 
lain, four Messengers, and not less than four nor more than 
bix Doorkeepers. 

Resolutions should then be passed raising a Committee on 
Contested Elections ; a committee to inform the Senate that 
the House is organized and ready for business, and a Com- 
mittee on Canvass of Votes for Senators.* 

The various preliminary resolutions (see Senate proceed- 
ings) are next in order, and the proceedings following the re- 
port of the various committees are the same as in the Senate. 

THE STATE OFFICEKS. 

As soon as the canvass of votes for State officers is re- 
ceived it should be referred to the proper committee, and the

number of terms.

* This duty is imperative, as in case the canvassing board find a tie vote 
m any district the House of Representatives must designate by ballot 
which shall be elected. (Constitution, Art. 3, Sec. 6 and Amendments, 
Art. 3.)

committee should immediately proceed to the performance of 
its duties. A recess may be taken pending the report, but there 
should be no adjournment for the day until the report of this 
committee has been received and acted on. If the committee 
report that a majority of votes has been cast for any or all the 
officers, joint resolutions should be passed declaring such 
election. 

In case the Governor is elected, a joint committee of one 
Senator and two Representatives should be raised to inform 
him of his election, and a similar committee to inform the 
Secretar\% Treasurer, Comptroller, and Attorney-General, if 
elected. 

If the Lieutenant-Governor is elected, the Senate will ap- 
point a committee of two to wait upon him and ask his ac- 
ceptance of the office. Immediately after the acceptance of 
the report of this committee, His Honor will enter the Senate 
Chamber, take the oath of office (usually administered by a 
Judiie of the Superior Court), and assume his duties. 

The Senate, upon receiving, through its member of the 
committee, notice of the acceptance of the offices to which 
they are elected by the other State officers, should notify the 
House that it is ready to meet that body in Joint Convention, 
and, having received a similar notice from the House, the 
Senate may proceed to the Representatives' Hall. 

If the Committee on Canvass of Vote for State Officers 
reports that no election by the people has occurred for any or 
all the officers, a joint resolution should be passed declaring 
the facts found to be true, and naming an hour of the suc- 
ceeding day at which the two houses will meet in joint con- 
vention to elect. 

THE JOINT CONVENTION. 

The Joint Convention is called to order by the President, 
or President />ro tern., of the Senate, the Clerk of the Senate 
acting as clerk. 

Prayer by the Chaplain of the Senate or House. 

If there shall have been an election by the people, a reso- 
lution should be passed raising a committee of one Senator 
and two Representatives to inform the Governor-elect that 
the Senate and House of Representatives are met in Joint 
Convention for his inauguration, and to receive any com- 
munication he may desire to make. The committee having 
performed their duties and reported are discharged, and tiie 
Governor, attended by his staff, the Secretary, Treasurer, 
Comptroller, and Attorney-General, appear in the hall. The 
oath of office is administered to the newly elected officers 
(by a Judge of the Supreme or Superior Court usually), and 
the inaugural message is delivered. The Governor then re- 
tires and the Convention is dissolved. 

If there shall have been no election by the people, the G>ii-

vention assembles in the same mamier. The roll of die Sen- 
ate is called 1}]r the Qerk of the Senate, and the names of ab- 
sentees must be entered on the Journal of the Senate. 

The roll of the House is then called by the Gerk of the 
House, and the names of absentees must be entered upon the 
Journal of the House. 

The President then appoints four tellers, and the G>nven- 
tkm proceeds without debate to ballot for Governor, and sub- 
sequently for the other State officers separately, following 
whidi the Convention is dissolved. 

SUBSEQUENT PBOCEEDINGS. 

Upon the re-assembling of each House after the dissolu^ 
tk» of the Joint Convention, the presiding officer must report 
the doings of the Joint Convention, and declaratory resolu- 
tions should be passed in the same manner as in case of an 
election by the people, the same notices of election given, and 
the inausTuration may then be proceeded with in the snnit! 
manner. 



Rulings of the Presiding Officers 

OF THE 

Senate and House of Representatives. 



Additions to the Roll. 
In the House, in i8qi, a member arose to a question of 
privilege, statinj: that the name of a certain man should be 
added to the roll of the House. Tlie chairman (Perry) ruled 
the member out of order. On appeal the decision of the 
C'hnir was sii'^l.-ii'.n-d CH. T., 1891, p. n). 

Amkndmenis Tt) Tin: Chnstitl'tion. 
Vpnn the construction f)f the provision in article eleventh 
of the Constitution renuirincr "two-thirds of each House" to 
vote i!r the affirmative to adopt an amendment to the Consti- 
tution. *hc Spenkcr of the -House (Rice\ in 1864. ruled that 
two-thirds of the \vlio]p House was necessary. The ruling: 
was appealed from and the House decided that two-thirds of 
those present was sufficient. This decision was followed by 
the Speakers of thr House in 1^76 (Waller), in 1877 CL- Har- 
ri.stinl, and in i88j. (H. P>. Harrison). 

Ari'i.oruiAiioNs from thf. St.\te Treasury. 

In 1889 the Speaker of the House (Perry) ruled that the 
l^rovision in Section 402 of the General Statutes, requiring 
resohiiions ai)propriatinc: money from the State Treasury to 
he referred t(^ the Committee on Appropriations, was manda- 
tory, and so referred a resolution that had been favorably re- 
ported by the Committee on Claims and passed by the Sen- 
:\to. This rulincr was ai^pealed from and the appeal sustained 
(H. T.. i&^, p. .407). 

In tho House in 1807 the point was raised that a specific 
nripropriation bill could not he amended by general legisla- 
tion. The «;neaker (Barbour") ruled that the point was well 
i.-'ken (H. J.,' 1807. p. T30SV 

Bills. 
In the House in i8or the point was raised that a bill being 
in contravention of the Statutes was not in order. The 
Speaker (Paige) ruled that the point of order was not well 
tal^en (H. J., t8oi, pp. -\io. :>So). 

(114) 



RUUNGS. 115 

In 1897 the point was raised that a bill under considera- 
tion had previously passed the House and been rejected in the 
Senate. The Speaker (Barbour) stated that, not having the 
two bills before him, he could not decide the point. The 
House passed tlie bill, but it was again rejected in the Senate 
and killed (H. J., 1897, P- 1410). 

Change of Votes. 
In 1883 the President of the Senate (Sumner) ruled that 
after the result of a yea and nay vote had been declared, the 
record could not be altered by the change of votes, except 
upon reconsideration of the bill (S. J., 1883, p. 627). 

Committees. 

In 1891 the point was raised that the House Committee on 
Canvass of Votes for State Officers having made its report 
was thereby dissolved, and that therefore the reference to that 
committee of a House Joint Resolution was not in order. 
The Speaker (Paige) ruled the point of order not well taken, 
on the ground that committees appointed by the House are in 
existence until the close of the session, unless discharged 
from service by vote of the House (H. T., 1891, p. 163). 

In 1903 the President of the Senate (Roberts) ruled that a 
motion to refer nominritions of Common Pleas judp,e> to com- 
mittee before they had l^een printed in the Calendar was ii«\)t \n 
order ( S. J., T903, p. 65). 

CoMMUTEK Reports. 
In the House in 1887 the Speaker (Hoyt), in response to a 
reqiiei-t fur a decision on that point, ruled that Rule XIII di<l 
not require that re^>olutions favorably reported and printed 
must be filed on the members' desks nne day before they 
could be starred for action, explaining that the Clerks were 
nnab'c to tell what resolutions were to he starred on the Cal- 
trndar until the printed copies had been tiled (H. J., 18X7, 

p. .169). 

In i8»S\; ihc Speaker (Perry) ruled that if, duriu;; the de 
hate upon a measure, a UK-njber of the committee signitled hi^ 
desire to withdraw from the majority report and sign tlie 
minority report, and thereby a majority of the committee 
were found to have signed the latter, it must be considered 
as the majority report (II. J., 1889, p. T041). 

In 1897 the Speaker (Barbour) ruled that the chairman of 
a committee had the right to close the debate on a committfc 
report (H. J., 1897, p. 876). 

In the House in 1901 the Speaker (Light) ruled that a 
motion to substitute motion to pass a resolution for ques- 
tion on acceptance of unfavorable conmiittee report was not 
in order (H. J., 1901, p. 1089). 



Jl6 RULINGS. 

In the House in 1901 the Speaker (Light) ruled that 1 
motion to substitute minority for majoiity report was not 
in order (H. J., 1901, p. 1105). 

In 1903 the President pro tempore of the Senate (Wood- 
ruff) ruled that tlie motion of a chairman of a committee to 
reject a favorable report was in order (S. J., 1903, p. 1093). 

In the same year it was ruled by the same officer that when 
the question was on a motion to accept an unfavorable report 
a motion to reject the report was not in order (S. J., 15)03, p. 
1093). 

Committees of Conference. 

In 1897, the question being raised in the House, the 
Speaker (Barbour) ruled that to be eligible for appointment 
on a committee of conference a member must have actually 
voted with the majority (H. J., 1897, P- 1209). 

Contested Elections. 
In the House in 1893 the point was raised that members 
whose seats were contested were not entitled to vote on a re- 
port recommending that a petitioner for a seat in the House 
be given leave to withdraw. The Speaker (Brooks) ruled the 
point of order not well taken (H. J., 1893, p. 498). 

Debates. 
In 1897 the point was raised that a member could not dele- 
gate the time allowed him for debate to another member. 
ITie Speaker (Barbour) ruled that the point was not wdl 
taken (H. J., 1897, p. 1056). 

Disqualification. 

A member is not disqualified for voting on a resolution re- 
lating to the charter of a private corporation because he may be 
a stockholder in the corporation (S. J., 1905, p. 451 ; S. J., 
1905, p. 452). 

Introduction of Joint Resolutions. 

In 1891 the point was raised in the Senate that a. joint reso- 
lution was not in order, the Senate not having been officially 
notified that the House had organized. The President pro 
tern. (Read) ruled the point of order not well taken (S. J., 
1891, p. 11). 

Joint Rules. 

The Speaker of the House (Pine), in 1883, ruled that the 
House might suspend a rule relating to its Calendar, althoui^ 
it was a joint rule. The ruling was appealed from, but sus- 
tained (H. J., 1883, pp. 8x1, 812). 

Motion to Table. 
A motion to table is not debatable (S. J., 1905, p. 498). 




RULINGS. 117 

New Business and Amendments. 
In the House in 1884 the force of a joint resolution re- 
stricting the time for the admission of new business was ques- 
tioned, and the Speaker (H. B. Harrison) ruled that the reso- 
lution was in effect a joint rule, and could not be set aside ex- 
cept by a vote of at least two-thirds of the members present 
(H. U 1884, p. 537). 

Duiring the same session the Speaker ruled that if the reso- 
lution shall "except bills or resolutions originating in com- 
mittees/' a moticm instructing a committee to report a speci- 
fied resolution came within the exception and was in order 
(H. J., 1884, p. 538). 

In 1897 a resolution reported by a committee came to the 
House from the Senate passed, llie point was raised that it 
was new business. The Speaker (Barbour) ruled that it could 
only be considered by the House by a two-thirds vote sus- 
pending the rules (H. J., 1897, p. 1023). 

In 1886 the point was raised that a petition of a private 
nature did not come within the provisions contemplated by 
the Constitution and Statutes as to the right of petition, and 
consequently could not be received after the time limited for 
the reception of new business. The Speaker (Tibbits) ruled 
the point of order well taken (H. J., 1886, p. 288). 

This ruling was reaffirmed by the Speaker (Barbour) in 
1897 (H. J., 1897, p. 429). 

In the House in 1885 the point was raised that an amend- 
ment was new business, and not in order. The Speaker 
(Simonds) ruled that it was not within the province of the 
Chair to decide a question of that nature. In the House in 
1899 the Speaker (Brandegee) ruled that an amendment being 
germane is not new business (H. J., 1899, p. 536). 

In 1889 the point was raised that an amendment offered 
was not germane to the bill before the House, and the 
Speaker (Perry) ruled that the point was well taken, and the 
House sustained the ruling (H. J., 1889, p. 355). This ruling 
was sustained in 1897, H. J., pp. 1123, 1182, 1264 (Barbour), 
and again in 1899, H. J., 1899, pp. 518, 1096 (Brandegee). 

In the House in 1891 a resolution was introduced declaring 
Nicholas Staub elected Comptroller. It was moved to amend 
by adding declaration of the election of other State officers. 
By the Speaker (Paige) the amendment was ruled out of 
order as not germane (H. J., 1891, p. 177) • 

The Speaker of the House (Hoyt), in 1887, ruled that a 
motion to substitute an original bill for a substitute favorably 
reported by a committee was in the nature of an amendment, 
and in order (H. J., 1887, p. 508). 

In the House, 1897, the point was raised that the House, 
after having amended a bill, recommitted it; the recommittal 
was equivalent to reconsideration. The Speaker (Barbour) 



Il8 RUUNGS. 

ruled that the point was not well taken, and that the House 
must consider the bill as amended (H. J., 1897, p. 1234). 

In 1897 the point was raised in the House that a substitute 
bill that had passed the Senate was of an adversary nature, 
and also new business. The Speaker (Barbour) ruled that 
the question of adverse lej^islation referred only to petitions, 
and that as the Senate had passed the substitute bill, the 
original being properly before the House, the substitute was 
not new business (H. J., 1897, p. 1407). 

The Speaker of the House (Brandegee), in 1899, ruled that 
a motion to table could not be amended by a reference to a 
committee (H. J., 1899, p. 384). 

In the House in 1899 the Speaker (Brandegee) ruled that 
an objection to a resolution as new business must be taken 
at the time the committee makes its report, otherwise it comes 
too late (H. J., 1899, p. 1366). 

In the House in 1901 the Speaker (Light) ruled that an 
amendment to a resolution making an appointment which 
struck out the name of the appointee and substituted another 
name was not in order (H. J., 1901, p. 685). 

In the House in 190T the Speaker (Light) ruled that an 
amendment was not in order when the question was on the 
acceptance of an unfavorable report (II. J., 1901, p. 915;. 

In the House in 1901 the Speaker (Light) ruled that an 
amendment on report of the Engrossed Bills Committee, ex- 
cept one recommended by the committee, was not in order 
(H. J., 1901, p. 1277). 

In the House in 1901 the Speaker (Light) ruled that a 
motion to amend a bill after rejection of a favorable report 
of committee was in order (H. J., 1901. o. 1145). 

In the House in 1901 the Speaker (Light) ruled that new 
business must be objected to when first introduced or brought 
to attention of House (H. J., 1901, p. 1295). 

In 1903 the President of the Senate (Roberts) ruled that an 
amendment to a resolution appointing a judge, substituting the 
name of a person who had not been nominated as required by 
statute, was not in order (S. J., 1903, p. 392). 

At the same session the same oflicer ruled that a petition 
introduced and referred to committee in the House, after time 
limited for new business, if new business, and objected to as 
such, could not be acted upon (S. J., 1903, p. 390). 

An amendment to a bill unfavorably reported is in order (S. 
J., 1905, p. 1 1 54). 

Organization of House of Representatives. 

In the House in 1891 a resolution was introduced paying 
the Speaker of the 1889 House for services rendered at the 
organization of the House of 1891. The point was raised that 
the resolution was contrary to the provisions of the Constitu- 
tion and the Statutes regulating the compensation of mem- 




RUUNGS. 119 

bcrs of the General Assembly. The Speaker (Paige) ruled 
the point of order not well taken, as the resolution was in 
accordance with well-established precedents (H. J., 1891, p. 
223). 

Postponement. 
In the House in 1901 the Speaker (Light) ruled that a mo- 
tion to indefinitely postpone, after vote by yeas and nays had 
been ordered, was in order (H. J., 1901, p. 558). 

Precedence of Motions. 

In 1883 the Speaker of the House (Pine) ruled that an ob- 
jection to a bill upon its first reading takes precedence of a 
motion to refer to committee, and the question is, " Shall the 
bill be rejected?" (H. J., 1883, p. 149). 

In the reference to the provision of House Rule XXXII, re- 
quiring the largest number or sum to be first voted on, the 
Speaker of the House (H. B. Harrison) ruled, in 1884, that 
this did not apply to amendments reducing the number or 
sum proposed in a bill or resolution (H. J., 1884, p. 427). 

The Speaker of the House (Tibbits), in 1886, ruled that a 
motion for the yeas and nays takes precedence over a motion 
for a rising vote (H. J., 1886, p. 633). 

The previous question having been ordered, the Speaker 
of the House in 1885 (Simonds) ruled that the vote on the 
main question takes precedence of pU other motions (H. J., 
1886. pp. 521, 656, 677). At the saiiK" session the point was 
raised that, after an amendment to a bill had been offered, it 
was not in order to move the previous question on the bill 
until the amendment had been voted on. The Speaker ruled 
that the point was not well taken, and the House sustained 
the ruling (H. J., 1885, p. 647). 

The Speaker of the Plouse in 18S4 (H. B. Harrison) ruled 
that the consideration of matters pending at adjournment 
might, by unanimous con<=;ent be deferred, and routine busi- 
ness proceeded with (H. J.. 1884, pp. 545, 607), which practice 
has since been followed. 

In the 'House in 1891 a motion to reconsider was made 
and a member began to discuss the main question, when the 
motion -for reconsideration was seconded. The point of order 
was made that it was too late to second the motion for recon- 
sideration. The point of order was sustained by the Speaker 
(Paige). Immediately following this a motion was made that 
the House take a recess, and the Speaker entertained the mo- 
tion, to which objection was made. The Speaker ruled that 
the motion to take a recess was in order, from which rulings an 
appeal was taken. Vote disclosed absence of quorum (H. J., 

1891. pp. 274-277). 

In the House in 1891, before a declaration of the result of 
a roll-call was announced, a member moved that, inasmuch as 



120 RX7UNGS. 

the roll-call showed no quorum present, the House adjourn. 
The Speaker (Paige) ruled the motion out of order (H. J., 
1891, p. 343). 

The Speaker of the House in 1899 (Brandegee ruled that 
a motion to indefinitely postpone a bill took precedence over 
a motion to table an amendment (H. J., 18^, p. 536). 

Previous Question. 

In 1897, the previous question was moved, and the point 
was raised that the motion, in order to be entertained, must 
be seconded. The Speaker (Barbour) ruled that the point 
was well taken (H. J., 1897, p. 1093). 

In the House in 1897 the Speaker (Barbour) ruled that an 
order for the previous question cannot be reconsidered, citing 
House Rule No. XXXVII (H. J., 1897, p. 121 1). This ruling 
was sustained in 1899, H. J., 1899, p. 1131 (Brandegee). 

The Speaker of the House, in 1899 (Brandegee), ruled that 
the previous question having been ordered, no amendment 
could then be entertained (H. J., 1899, pp. loii, 1131). 

In the House in 1899 it was ruled that the previous ques- 
tion having been ordered, no further debate could be had 
(H. J., 1899, p. 1026). 

In the House in 1899 the Speaker (Brandegee) ruled that 
the previous question having been ordered, a motion to re- 
commit could not be entertained (H. J., 1899, p. loii). 

In the House in 1901 the Speaker (Light) ruled that a 
motion that a member be given the privilege of the floor after 
previous question ordered was not in order (H. J., 1901, p. 
896). 

Quorum. 

In 1897 the Speaker (Barbour) ruled that it was the privi- 
lege of any member of the House to doubt, in order to de- 
termine whether there was a quorum present (H. J., 1897, p. 
783). 

Recall. 

In the House in 1901 the Speaker (Light) ruled tliat a 
resolution of recall was not in order unless for mistake in vote 
or language of resolution (H. J., 1901, p. 1316). 

Reading of Letters. 
The President pro tern, of the Senate (Walsh) in 1887 ruled 
that the reading of letters relating to matters before the Sen- 
ate containing the opinion of individuals upon the subject 
under consideration was not in order (S. J., 1887, p. 661). 

« 
Reconsiderations. 
In 1883 the President of the Senate (Sumner) ruled that a 
motion to reconsider the action of the Senate could not be 




lUUNGS. 101 

entertained unless the resolution voted on was in possession 
of the Senate (S. J., 1883, p. 627). 

In 1887 the Speaker of the House (Hoyt) ruled that a mo- 
tion to reconsider was in order, although the bill was not in 
possession of the House (H. J., 1887, p. 930), and the Speaker 
(Perry) so decided in 1S89 (H. J., 1889, p. 734)- 

In 1884 the Speaker of the House (H. B. Harrison) ruled 
that a motion to reconsider must be made within the time 
specified in Rule XXXVII, and that notice of intention to so 
move cannot operate to extend that time (H. J., 1884, p. 336). 

In 1887 the Speaker of the House (Hoyt) ruled that a mo- 
tion to reconsider made after the session day subsequent to its 
passage was not in order (H. J., 1887, p. 794). Subsequently, 
during the same session, a bill was recalled from the Secre- 
tary's office by joint resolution, and upon motion being made 
to reconsider the action of the House, the point was raised 
that the time for reconsideration had elapsed, but the point of 
order was overruled (H. J., 1887, p. 881). 

In the House in 1889 this point was raised, and the Speaker 
(Perry) decided that it was well taken. The decision was ap- 
pealed from, and, after lenjrthy di>ciissinn, sustained (H. J., 
1889. p. 724). 

In the House in 1893 the point was raised that a motion to 
reconsider was not in order when the matter was already in 
the possession of the Senate in accordance with a resolution 
passed requiring the clerk to transmit daily all matter acted 
upon. The Speaker (Brooks) ruled thai the point of order 
was not well taken (H. J., 1893, P- ^33^)- 

In 1895 a committee was appointed to recall a bill from the 
Senate after the time prescribed for reconsideration was 
passed. The succeeding day a motion was made to recon- 
sider the vote appointing the committee, and the point was 
raised that the original vote was in violation of Rule XVI, 
and consequently not in order, and the Speaker was asked to 
decide whether the motion to reconsider was in order. The 
Speaker (Fessenden) ruled that as the point of order was not 
raised when the vote raising the committee was passed, the 
vote to reconsider was in order (H. J., 1895, p. 5 19). 

In 1895, in a case of disagreeing action, a motion was made 
to recede and concur, adding an amendment. The point was 
raised that the amendment was not in order. The Speaker 
(Fessenden) ruled that the point of order was not well taken 
(H. J., 1895, p. 1 143). 

In 1885, the House having upon appeal sustained a de- 
cision of the Chair, a motion was made to reconsider the vote 
to sustain, and the point was raised that a vote on an appeal 
could not be reconsidered. The Speaker (Simonds) ruled 
that such a motion was proper, but could not be acted otv ^t 
that time (H. J., i88s, P- 673).

the Senate having, in a case of disagreeing action, voted to 
"adhere," the bill could not again be considered (S. J., 1883, 
p. 746). 

In the House in 1893 the point was raised that a motion to 
table a motion to reconsider could not be withdrawn. The 
Speaker (Brooks) ruled the point of order not well taken. 
Appeal was taken, but was not sustained (H. J., 1893, PP* 
1526, 1527). 

In the House in 1893 the point was raised that a matter 
could not be reconsidered, as two session days had elapsed 
since the prior action of the House on the matter. The 
Speaker (Brooks) ruled the point of order not well taken, 
and on appeal was sustained (H. J., 1893, p. 487). 

In 1897 a motion to reconsider having been made, a mem- 
ber moved to adjourn. The question being raised, the 
Speaker (Barbour) ruled that if the House voted to adjourn, 
the first business on the next session day would be the motion 
to reconsider (H. J., 1897, p. 1055). 

Restoration of Forfeited Riguts. 

The question as to what constitutes the two-thirds of the 
members of both branches of the General Assembly required 
by Article XVII of the Amendments to the Constitution has 
been several times raised, but the decisions have not been uni- 
form. By reference to H. J., 1883, pp. 571-575. 579» it will be 
seen that at that time it was considered that two-thirds of the 
members of the House must vote in the affirmative. The 
Senate in 1884 (S. J., p. 285) decided that two-thirds of tlie 
Senate was required to vote in the affirmative, the question 
having been raised by the President of the Senate (Sumner) 
for the purpose of getting a decision on that point. In 1889 
the Speaker of the House (Perry) ruled that two-thirds of the 
members of the House must vote in the affirmative (H. J., 
1889, p. 373). This decision was appealed from, and, after 
full discussion, the ruling of the Speaker was sustained, but, 
a motion to reconsider being made, the House reversed its 
previous action, sustaining the appeal, and proceeded by a two- 
thirds vote of the members present to pass the resolution (H. 
J., 1889, pp. 380, 381). 

In the House in 1893 the Speaker (Brooks) ruled tliat it 
required the affirmative vote of two-thirds of all the members 
of the House to pass a resolution restoring forfeited rights. 
Appeal was taken, and was sustained (H. J., 1893, p. 228). 

Roll-call. 

In 1893, in the Senate, a call of the roll of the Senate was 

demanded, and the point was raised that, as the vote just 

taken had not disclosed the absence of a quorum, the demand 

was out of order. The president (Cady) decided the point of 

order well taken (S. J., 1893, p. aM • 



KULINGS. 123 

Rules. 
In 1891. in the House, the point was raised that a certain 
resolution projposing an amendment to the House Rules was 
out of order, inasmuch as the proposed rule was in contraven- 
tion of the General Statutes. The Speaker (Paige) ruled the 
point of order not well taken, and on appeal his decision was 
sustained (H. J., 1891, pp. 184-189). 

Second Reading. 
In 1891, on the first session day, certain bills for public acts 
were taken from the table and read the second time. The 
point of order was raised that under House Rule XXIV the 
foregoing bills could not come up for a second reading until 
the second session day of the House. The Speaker (Paige) 
ruled the point of order not well taken, on the ground that 
Rule XXIV referred to calendar days, and not to session 
days (H. J., 1891, p. 163). 

Speaker. 
In the House in looi the Speaker (Light) ruled that a 
motion was not in order until tlic m.itter before the House 
had been stated by the Speaker Clf. J., 1901, p. 1174). 

UXPAKLTAMENTARY LaNGC'AGE. 

In the House in 1891 a member referred to the Governor 
as an " intruder and usurper." The point was raised that the 
language used was niiparliamcntary. and disrepectful to the 
Governor of Connecticut. The Speaker (Paige) decided the 
T>?int of order well taken, and directed the Clerk to take down 
the unparliamentary lanti^uagc (IT. J., 1891, p. 189). 

Vetoed ^T^.ASI:KES, 

The Constitution. Article IV, Section T2, provides that if 
?he Governor disapproves a bill he shall send it, with his ob- 
jections, to the House in which it originated, where it shall be 
rccon-^idered. 

Upon the construction of the following sentence. "If, after 
reconsideration, that House shall again pass it, it shall be 
sent with objections to the other House, which shall also re- 
consider it." the Speaker of the House (Pine) in 1883 (H. J., 
p. S97) ruled that the main question was, " Shall the bill pass 
notwithstanding the objections of the Governor?" and that 
this question was open to any of the subsidiary motions, but 
not to a motion to amend the bill, as that would change the 
main question. 

In the same year the Senate amended a vetoed bill to re- 
move the features objected to by the Governor, but the House 
refused to receive the bill as amended (H. J., 1883, p. 868), 
and upon its return to the Senate, that body reconsidtitd \V^ 



124 RUUNGS. 

action, rejected the amendment, and then voted upon the 
passage of the bill as vetoed, "the objections of the Governor 
notwithstanding" (S. J., p. 723). 

In the House in 1889 the Chair (Mr. Olmstead) ruled that 
an amendment to a vetoed bill ^^as in order, but, upon appeal, 
the House sustained the appeal (H. J., 1889, p. 688). 

Later in the same session a bill that had been passed over 
the Governor's veto was again reconsidered,* amended, and 
again passed, but the Senate refused to consider the amend- 
ments, voting upon the original bill as returned by the Gov- 
ernor (S. J., 1889, p. 955). The President of the Senate (Mer- 
win) had the day previously ruled in a parallel case that tlie 
only question properly before the Senate was, V Shall the bill 
pass, the objections of the Cnn-ernor notwithstanding?" and 
this ruling had, upon appcnl. been sustained by the Senate 
(S. J., .1889, p. 934). 

A bill having been returned to the house in which it orig- 
inated, and the objections of the Governor sustained by its 
rejection, the further disposal of it has not been uniform. In 
1^3 (H. J., pp. 865. 897) the House ordered such bills sent 
directly to the Secrctar>''s office. In 1889 a vetoed resolution 
was passed in the Senate, where it oriizinated, the objections 
of the Governor notwithstanding, but failed of passage in the 
House, and that body, notwithstanding there was disagreeing 
action, sent the resolution to the Secretary's office, instead of 
allowing it to go back to the Senate, as would be the case 
with a bill that had not been presented to the Governor (H. 
J., 1889, pp. 709, 739). So far as noted, when this point has 
been raised, the decision has been that unless the House in 
which a bill originated, and to which it was first returned, 
passed it over the Governor's veto, there was no reason for 
sending it to the other House. 

As above noted, the Plouse, in 1883, decided that if the 
House to which a bill was returned by the Governor sustained 
the veto, the bill should go to the Secretar>''s office; but pre- 
vious to the question having been raised, a resolution that had 
been returned by the Governor and rejected was allowed to 
go to the Senate and there passed, notwithstanding the objec- 
tions of the Governor. The resolution came back to the 
House on the disagreeing action, and that body decided that, 
having once reconsidered it as required by the Constitution, 
and rejected it, no further action could be taken (H. J., 1883, 
pp. 812-817). 

This decision was in accordance with a ruling by the 
Speaker of the House (L. Harrison) in 1877, but that ruling 
was not at that time sustained by the House (H. J., 1877, p. 

7T2). 

*The second reconsideration is referred to in the last paragraph con- 
cerning vetoed measures.

Xp i^BSIt in the House, the point was raised that a vetoed 
bill, having been once reconsidered, could not be aprain recon- 
sidered, but the ISpeaker (Perry) ruled that the point was not 
well taken, explaining, however, that he so ruled in order to 
correct a misl^e, which had evidently and admittedly been 
made by the House in this particular case, and not as a strictly 
parliamentary ruling, or as a ruling to be taken as a prece- 
dent (H. J., i88ft p. 1 138). 

Yeas and Nays. 

In the House in 1893 the Speaker (Brooks) ruled that a- 
motion for the previous question could not be withdrawn dur- 
ing roll-call, as on that motion the yeas and nays had been 
ordered by a vote of the House, and that the roll-call was 
then in progress and must be concluded. Appeal was taken, 
but was not sustained (H. J., 1893, P- 1322).

PARLIAMENTARY PRACTICE AND 
PRECEDENTS. 



Upon most ucaisions tluit arise in the Connecticut General 
Assembly, the common parliameniary law that governs all 
legislative bodies contains the rules which prevail. This com" 
mon parliamentary law has ^rown up in modem times among 
English and American lc.::;islative bodies. The General As- 
sembly of Connecticut has followed for many years the simple 
forms that formerly prevailed in the parhament of Great 
Britain, with such modifications and changes as have been 
found necessary from time to time. "The Law and Practice 
of Legislative Assemblies in (he United States of America" 
by Luther S. Cushing, contains the rules and precedents which 
govern almost every question that may arise in the Connecti- 
cut General Assembly. This authority can be safely appealed 
to in nearly every case that may arise. Cushing's Manual and 
Jefferson's Manual contain rules which are stated in such a 
general way that in many c-isos an examination of the larger 
work of Mr. Cushini^ will be fonnd expedient by a legislator or 
presiding officer. Upon some fjucstions that have arisen, pre- 
siding officers in the Senate and House in cases of dispute have 
followed the rulings of the Speaker of the House of Repre- 
sentatives at Washington, as that body is governed by the 
same general parliamentary law except when modified by its 
own rules and precedents. The digest of Mr. Barclay, which is 
used in the House of Representatives at Washington, contains 
many precedents which have been found useful by presiding 
officers in the Connecticut (icn.ral Assembly. The practice in 
Connecticut has usually favored a simple and direct applica- 
tion of a few rules so as to facilitate the dispatch of business. 
The general parliamentary law which obtains as cited above is 
modified in Comiecticut, Hrst, by the joint rules and special 
rules of the House or Scnatts second, by certain customs 
which are peculiar to Connecticut and which have been fol- 
lowed for so many years as to have the force of binding pre- 
cedent; and third, by certain ]»rovisions of the General Stat- 
utes. 

JOINT RULES. 

The joint rules relate principally to the organization of the 
General Assembly. They do not, however, cover the proceed- 
ings in case of an election of the State officers by the General 
Assembly. 

(126) 



PARUAMENTARY. PRACTICE AND PRECEDENTS. 127 

The second joint rule provides for the appointment of the 
joint standing committees, which are now twenty-four in num- 
ber. This rule provides what particular matters shall be re- 
ferred to the several committees. The presiding officers and 
members usually follow these rules in referring business to 
proper committees, and it is considered bad form, unless under 
extraordinary -circumstances, to refer bills or resolutions to 
other than the appropriate committees provided by the rules. 
The Committee on Cities and Boroughs was established in 
1866, to relieve the Committee on Incorporations of its work 
relating to municipal charters, and also to relieve the Com- 
mittee on Railroads of business relating to horse railroad com- 
panies. The Committee on Insurance was established in 1875, 
to further relieve the Committee on Incorporations of atten- 
tion to important insurance interests. The Committee on 
Manufactures was established in 1877, for the purpose of at- 
tending to certain resolutions and bills that were usually re- 
ferred to the Committee on Incorporations. The Committee 
on Appropriations was established in 1885, to take charge of 
all matters covered by Chapter 4, and by Section 23 of the 
General Statutes. The powers and duties of that committee 
are governed by the chapter and section referred to. The 
work of the Committee on Engrossed Bills is performed 
mainly by the Gerk of Bills, who is appointed at a joint meet- 
ing of the Committee on the Judiciary and the Committee on 
Engrossed Bills, under the provisions of Section 37 of the 
General Statutes. The duties of the Clerk of Bills are pointed 
otit more specifically by the tenth joint rule. The duties of the 
Committee on Engrossed Bills are provided in detail by the 
i:inlh and fourteenth joint rules. 

The fourth joint rule provides that committees of confer- 
ence shall consist of one Senator and two Representatives who 
were in the majority vote of their respective houses. It some- 
'imes happens that a question is raised whether a person 
nominated for a member of a committee of conference can be 
questioned whether or not he was in the majority vote. It has 
been decided in the House of Representatives at Washins:ton, 
and the precedent has been followed in Connecticut, that un- 
less the yeas and nays were taken and recorded no member 
can question the vote of another member if that member de- 
clares that he was in the majority vote. 

The fifth joint rule provides that when each house shall 
have adhered to its vote of disagreement, the bill or resolution 
shall be considered lost. The regular method of procedure 
when a bill or resolution is returned to the house where it 
originated, upon disagreeing action of the other branch of the 
Genera] Assembly, is to make a motion to insist and ask for a 
conunittee of conjference. TTie subject matter should then ht 
returned to the other house, and that body usually insists also 



128 PAKUAMENTAKY PKACTICE AND PRECEDENTS. 

and grants a committee of conference. If the committee of 
conference cannot agree they so report, and either house may 
then recede from its former action and concur with the other, 
or the usual course under such circumstances is that each 
house adheres to its original action, and the bill is lost If 
the committee of conference SLgrcts upon a report, the neces- 
sary action is followed in one or both branches,- and the action 
recommended by the committee is adopted by amendment or 
otherwise. It sometimes happens that a motion to adhere is 
made, before a motion to insist and ask or grant a committee 
of conference, and it has been held that a motion so made may 
>M» entertained, but it is not considered respectful treatment 
ni a bill nor of the other branch of the General Assembly to 
make a motion to adhere, until after a committee of con- 
ference has been asked for and granted and the inability of 
I he two houses to agree has become apparent. 

The seventh joint rule provides for the return of a bill after 
it has been passed and sent to the Governor, and before he 
has signed the same. If the bill has been signed by the Gor- 
rrnor it has become a law, and can only be repealed as other 
statutes. If the bill has not been signed by the Governor, tiie 
invariable practice requires that the Governor should consent 
to its return. If, after passage and transmission to the Gov- 
ernor, either house desires that the bill shall be recalled, there 
is no rule of courtesy between the two houses which requires 
a recall, and it should not be recalled unless the sense of botfi 
houses aprees that there should be further consideration of the 
measure. 

The eighth joint rule provides the method of procedure in 
joint convention of the two houses. 

The eleventh, twelfth, and thirteenth joint rules provide for 
the endorsement, form, and printing of private and public acts. 
Private acts must be printed at the expense of the parties in- 
terested. The Clerks of the House and Senate will usually at- 
tend to the printing of private acts if the name of a responsible 
party is given to them, who shall be charged with the cost of 
the same. It is better that the Clerks should attend to this, 
because in that way the rules concerning the form of printing 
and filing for the calendar will be better observed. 

The fifteenth joint rule relates to the method of procedure 
after bills have been reported from their respective com- 
mittees. 

RULES OF THE SENATE. 

Most of the special rules of the Senate are similar to the 
rules of the House. The order of precedence of certain mo- 
tions provided by the sixth Senate rule differs somewhat from 
that of the thirty-third House rule, but the only^ important 
difference lies in the fact that there is no provision in the Sen- 



PARLIAMENTARY PRACTICE AND PRECEDENTS. lip 

ate rules for a motion for the previous question. It has been 
held that the previous question cannot be ordered in the Sen- 
ate, because there is no such practice or rule in the Senate of 
the United States. In 1863 it was held, however, by the presid- 
ing officer, after a debate had been carried on for several hours 
apparently for the purpose of delay, that the Chair would en- 
tertain a motion that " the Senate will proceed to take a vote 
upon the question pending." Such a motion is equivalent in 
its effect to the previous question, but it is believed this is the 
only instance in which the force of a motion for the previous 
question has been felt in the Senate. Tlie thirteenth rule of 
the Senate provides that all committees except committees of 
conference shall be appointed by the Senate. Before 1868 the 
committees of the Senate were appointed by the Lieutenant- 
Governor; between 1868 and 1877 the practice varied somewhat 
according to the political complexion of the Senate and the 
Lieutenant-Governor. Since 1877 the rule has been as at the 
present time, notwithstanding the fact that the Senate and 
Lieutenant-Governor have several times been of the same 
political faith. This is in accordance with the practice of the 
I'nitcd Stales Senate, and is justified by the fact that the 
Lieutenant-Governor is not a member of the body over which 
he presides, as is the Speaker of the House, and is not chosen 
by a majority of the Senate. The nineteenth Senate rule pro- 
vides that a motion to reconsider may be made within three 
days of the actual session of the Senate. This differs from 
the thirty-seventh House rule, which provides tliat a motion 
to reconsider must be made on tlie same or the succeeding 
session-day. The difference between the<e tv»o rules some- 
times leads to a misunderstanding: by new members. There 
-eems to be no good reason why these two rules should differ, 
and it would be well if a revising committee should fix the 
time for reconsideration within the same number of days in 
lyjth houses. 

RILES OF THE lluLSE OF RF.l'RESKNTATlVES. 

These rules have been carefully revised twice within a few 
}ears, and as they have modified materially the old rules, and 
have made some changes in the common parliamentary prac- 
tice, a careful examination is requisite for any member who re- 
members the older practice and rules, or who desires to be 
ready upon parliamentary questions that may arise. 

MODIFICATIONS OF THE RULES BY STATUTE. 

To understand thoroughly the powers and duties of the 
executive and legislative branches of the government and their 
relations to each other it is best to read the sections of the 
General Statutes from Section i to Section 187, inclusive. 



T30 PARUAMENTAHY practice ANly PRECEDENTS. 

The special statute rules governing the General Assembly will 
be found from Section i to Section 67, inclusive. Under these 
statute rules the following limitations are olaced upon the 
power of the Gcn(?ral Assembly: 

No petititm can hv considered for any relief which an> 
court has power to j^'rant. 

Petitions of ah adversary nature nmst be served upon the 
parties interested at least twelve days before the second day 
of the session of the General Assembly. 

Petitions for the incorporation of banks, savings banks, or 
nlteration of tlie charter of a city or borough, the incorpora- 
tion of a railroad, streci railway, canal, or turnpike company, 
or for the alteration of the charter of any such company, must 
be duly advertised for at least three weeks before the first day 
of the session of the Assembly. 

Petitions relating to the school fund must be returned and 
docketed by the first Monday in December preceding the 
session of the Assembly. 

Members of the Assembly cannot appear a? attorneys be- 
fore the Assembly or any committee thereof, unless in their 
own cause or that of the towns they represent, or of some 
public corporation therein. 

Applications for restoration of forfeited rights cannot be 
heard unless notice shall have been published at least once a 
week, for two successive weoks Avithin two months before the 
opening of the session. 

Section 23 of the General Statutes provides that all esti- 
mates for the expenditures of the several departments, and 
all bills and resolutions appropriating money from the State 
Treasury, except those for the payment of claims against the 
State, and for the payment of the contingent expenses of the 
Senate and House, shall be referred to the Committee on Ap 
propriations before tinal action thereon. No appropriation for 
a salar>', compensation, or fees in excess of the amount al- 
lowed by law can be made until after a law authorizing the 
increase has been passed. 

Appropriations in excess of ten thousand dollars must be 
divided, if po^^sible, into specific items. 

No general legislation can be attached to an appropriation 
bill. 

Sections 26-31, inclusive, limit the powers of the executive 
and legislative departments of the government in relation to 
appropriations. 

Any bill for a public act amending or repealing a statute 
must either cite the language of the statute amended or re- 
pealed, or so much thereof as may be necessary to show the 
eflfect of such amendment or repeal. 

Contestants for seats in either house of the General As- 
sembly cannot be allowed more than one hundred dollars for 
attorney fees and expenses, together with the legal fees of

witnesses summoned with the approval of the Committee on 
Contested Elections. 

The Treasurer cannot pay any member of the General As- 
sembly his compensation and mileage until after tlu^ final ad- 
journment. 

Persons elected to either branch of the General Assembly 
by illegal practices are incapable of holding their seats unless 
they can show that they were not. directly or indirectly, con- 
cerned in them. 

If any person elected a Representative shall by himself or 
others offer or distribute gratuitously among the electors an»' 
liquor on the day of election, or shall on any previous day 
entertain electors in like manner, with intent to procure votes, 
he shall be considered guilty of undue influence and illegal 
practices, and forfeit his seat in the House. 

The mileage distance from each town to TTartford is fixed 
by Section 53. 

CALENDAR. 

Prior to 1875 ^^^^ regular business of each house Cupon the 
rfpf>rt> of the committees) was taken up according to the con- 
venience of the house and usually nithout notice to the mem- 
bers. The business was called up by the chairmen of the re- 
spective committees from the Clerk's table at the pleasure of 
the several chairmen. Since that time, the system of putting 
all public acts and joint resolutions upon a calendar which i-^ 
daily di«tributed to each member, gives notice to each member 
of the order of business for the day. 

The rules governing the printing of bills and liie calendar 
will be found in Sections 18-21, inclusive, of the General 
Statutes. In addition, the twenty-third Senate rule and the 
ninth House rules govern the Clerks of the respective branches 
and direct them how they shall prepare and keep the respcrtivt> 
calendars. 

THE PREVIOUS OUKSTION. 

The question has occasionally been raised in Uie ll'-iisc 
whether the previous question applies to anything more than 
the immediate question at issue ; that is, if the pending motion 
is to amend a bill or resolution, and the previous question is 
ordered, v.hether any other question is thereby ordered than 
that upon the adoption of the proposed amendment, or 
v.hether the force of the previous question cuts off debate upon 
the whole subject matter and calls for a vote upon the pending 
hill or resolution as well as upon the motion to amend it. The 
weight of Connecticut rulings or authority is that in the Con- 
necticut House the previous question when ordered applies 
only to the immediate question before the House, and does not 
cut off debate upon any questions at is«;uo that properly pre- 
cede the definite one under debate. 



r32 PARLIAMENTARY PRACTICE AND PBECBDBNTS. 

YEAS AND NAYS. 

A record of the yeas and nays may be ordered by one-fifth 
of the members present, and this right is guaranteed by Sec- 
tion 9 of the third article of the Constitution. It was held in 
1875 and <?everal times thereafter, that the constitutional right 
to call for the yeas and nays exists at any time before the 
actual and final declaration of the result, although there may 
have been taken a vira voce and a standing vote before the 
yeas and nays arc railed for. This richt to move for the yeas 
and nays at any time before a declaration of the result was held 
to exist before the .'doption of the thirty-sixth rule of the 
House in its present form, and exi^^ts by force of the Constitu- 
tion in both the Senate and House independently of any 
rule. 

RECONSIDERATION OF A VETOED BILL. 

It was decided by the Connecticut House in 1877 that as 
long as a vetoed bill is in the possession of cither house, that 
house may vote more than once upon the motion to reconsider, 
and pass the bill notwithstandinpj the objections of the Gover- 
nor. This is in accordance with a decision of the National 
House of Rcpreseniatives in 1842. Undoubtedly, however, the 
second motion to reconsider should be made by some one 
who was in the nc-irative vote upon the first motion to recon- 
sider. When the vetoed bill or resolution has been recon- 
sidered it has been held that it is open for amendments so as 
to meet the objections of the executive, and on several oc- 
casions vetoed bills have been so amended, and have often re- 
ceived the approval of the executive. The amendment makes 
a new bill, and the^e rulings arc in the interest of convenient 
and comiuon sen.sc legislation. 

TO LAV O-V THE TAULK \ MOTION TO KKCONSIDER. 

'i'he Washington practice of clinching a vote uptin a bill by 
making a motion to reconsider, and then laying that motion 
upon the table docs not obtain in Connecticut It was at- 
tempted in i86t and resulted in failure. To permit such a 
thing to be done v.ould violate the connnon-sense rules per- 
mitting reconsideration v.ithin two days in the House and 
three days in the Senate, and would enable a temporary major- 
ity to obtain an tnifair advantage. 

AMEXDMF.N'TS TO THE CONSTITI.'TION. 

A question has been raised once or twice whether two- 
thirds of all the members elected to either house are necessary 
to approve an amendment to the Constitution, or whether two- 
thirds of a quorum is sufficient. It was decided by the House 
itself in 1864 upon an appeal and by Speakers of the House 
m 1875, 1876. T877, and t88|, that two-thirds of a quorum is 



PARLIAMENTARY PRACTICE AND PRECEDENTS. I33 

sufficient to approve an amendment to the constitution of the 
State.^ These decisions are in accordance with the ruling of 
the House of Representatives at Washington in 1865 upon 
the adoption of the thirteenth amendment to the Constitution 
of the United States. 

MINORITY REPORTS. 

In most legislative bodies the majority of a committee con- 
trol the reports, and the only report that can be made to a 
legislative body from one of its committees is that which is 
kiKywn as the report of the committee, which is the report 
agreed to by a majority of its members. The minority of a 
committee cannot usually make a separate or special report. 
In the Connecticut General Assembly, however, a custom has 
existed for a long time which permits the minority of a com- 
mittee to make a special report. This special report may be 
simply the negative views of a minority, giving the reasons 
why they dissent from the affirmative action of the majority of 
the committee. When the minority of a committee report 
affirmatively, they may recommend the passage of a resolution 
or bill for a public act, which resolution or bill accompanies 
the report. It is the usual practice, however, to consider the 
report of the majority of a committee first, and if that re- 
port is accepted, no action should be taken upon the minority 
report, but it should be treated as rejected without further 
action because it has no right of existence except as a courtesy 
to the minority members of the committee, and the opinions 
of the minority have been rejected once by the acceptance of 
the report of the committee. If, however, the report of the 
majority of a committee is rejected, it is usual to take up im- 
mediately, for consideration, the report of the minority. It 
<Ioes not follow, however, if the report of the majority is re- 
jecte(f that the report of the minority should be accepted. Any 
bill or resolution reported by the minority of a committee 
should be printed, and, if passed, requires all the formalities 
in its passage that are requisite if the same came from the 
majority' of the committee. 

POWER TO SFXURE A QIOKUM. 

The Constitution provides in Section 7, Article III, that 
while a majority of each house shall constitutfe a quorum to do 
business, a smaller number may adjourn from day to day, and 
compel the attendance of absent members in such manner and 
under such penalties as each house may prescribe. There has 
never been any legislation by either house of the Connecticut 
General Assembly prescribing the manner in which the attend- 
ance of absent members may !)e secured. Such legislation ha*?

134 PARUAMENTARY PRACTICE AND PRBCBDBNT8. 

been proposed on two or three occasions, but the good sense 
of absent members has prevented any necessity for its adop- 
tion. On a few occasions during times of political excitement 
the minority has withdrawn and left the House without a 
quorum for the purpose of preventing immediate legislation, 
but in no instance has such action by the minority continued 
longer than till the next regular day of meeting. On one or 
two occasions it has been suggested that the Speaker has 
power to order the doors to be closed. This is undoubtedly a 
mistake, and it would require the passage of a resolution by 
the House itself, which resolution should provide a means of 
issuing a proper summons, to be served by some proper 
official, to bring the absent members onto the floor. On a few 
occasions Speakers have ordered tlie doors to be closed to pre- 
vent members from going out when it was feared the House 
might be left without a quorum. This was undoubtedly an 
arbitrary assumption of power which no Speaker or door- 
keeper could enforce, and has been submitted to only because 
of the good nature of the members who were thus kept within 
the House. In most legislative bodies when it becomes neces- 
sary to compel the audience of absent members, tlie Ser- 
geant-at-arms is the official clothed with the power, upon an 
order of the House, to arrest the person of an absent member 
and bring him onto the floor of the House. H a member of 
a legislative body should by violence prevent the Sergeant-at- 
arms from securing his attendance, such member could un- 
doubtedly be expelled and a new election could be ordered 
to fill the vacancy. As the Connecticut General Assembly 
has no Sergeant-at-arms, it is probable that the sheriff of die 
County of Hartford could be clothed with the necessary power 
to arrest the persons of absent members, and bring them onto 
the floor of the House, but it is not probable any such ex- 
treme exercise of the constitutional power of either house will 
ever become necessary.
