Batlvy of Texas has decided lo raise
tho questton of tho right of Major Gen-
eral Wheeler to participate In the proceed-
ings of tho house should hd attempt lo ex.
crclsa tho prlvltego of a member. He will
ahio raise tho question ai ngalnat either
of thrco other members of the hottss who
entered th-o service of tho United States
5-urlc(E tho war with Spain Messrs. Itob-
blns (Rep. Pennsylvania) Golson (Hep.
KentuckyO -and Campbell (Dem. IlltnoU).
ono of theso members of the house who
cntened tho mllltnrj rcrvlco has partl:!-
pated in tho proceedings sicca tho session
convened either to Introduce bills or voto
upon roll call but last Saturday night
General Wheeler attended the democratic
caucus. As ixmo but democratic members
of congress are members of the democratic
caucus Mr. Bailey mys this raises the
presumption that General Wheeler con-
templates resumlns hla scat in tho house.
Concerning tho question at Issue Mr.
Bailey ma-S'o tho following statement to-
day: "I have heretofore refused to say any-
thing on tho subject tor publication. But
I have seen so many -and auch different
slatiemut3 attributed to me that I have
dteld'ed to slate my position and it will
ho found that I am simply Insisting upon
an obedience of o:e of Uie plainest pro-
visions of tho constitution. Section 6 of
Article 1 declares 'that no person holding
any office under tha United States shall
be a' member of cither house during his
continuance in oflica.
"Undoubtedly! General Wheeler is u
person and a very distinguished one; un-
doubtedly the major generalship which
Jie holds 4b an office under tho United
States and a very .high one; It is there-
fore perfectly plain that when ha accepted
fib appointment lu -tho army he vacate
ms seal in mo nouso or representatives.
Tho constitutional provision ltj not onl
as plain as tho English lauguas can mak
It. but this very a treat ion' hus been ex
pressiy decided twice sioU tinanlmousl
deciaeu tho samo way on both occasions
"It arose first in 1S03 when Mr. Vannes
who after qualifying as a member of the
house accepted an appointment us n major
in the militia of tho District of Columbia.
Hi3 military offlco carrli-d no salary anil
Involved eo practical military duty but
tho question ivm raised and tho hoiiso
unanimously decided ithat ho had forfoitod
his seat iu congress. Whon tho. bouse was
about to tako the vote Hon. John Ran-
dolph then tho leader of the democratic
patty lr -the house declared that although
it was agreed by everybody that Mr. Van-
ness had forfeited his teat y.et bo desired
that the disposition of tho house to ex-
clude by uc-anilmous vole oven the shadow
of executlvo inilueueo should be recorded
on their Journal for which purpose he
demanded the ayes and noes. Tho roll
was caKcd and -tho record shows that the
houiia voted unanimously In favor of tho
very position which I. am now ashertlnc
"Tie panic question arose the second
time during the Mexican war1 when Mr
Yell of AtrkansM accepted an appointment
as n colonel of volunteers. The governor
of tiat Eoito held tih'it -in Accepting hte
military iappoCntmcnt ho h.id forfeited his.
seat' in conyrrcss and ordered an election
to fill the -vacancy. 'Mr. ' Nowtom was
elected at a eip3c'lal dectlctu and whon he
appeared' at t)ao house ahd aiiked to I19

jection .however w'as rjot bjod on tho
ground -tfait Colonel Yell could not hold n
