In the House, Mr. Stevens movshall be certified to the Secretary of the Senate, and of each Representative and Delegate to the Sergeant-at-Arms of the House of Representatives, by the Postmaster-General, within thirty days of the commencement of each session of Congress. Mr. Simmons, of Rhode Island, and Mr. Howe, of Wisconsin, opposed the amendment. Mr. Howe could not vote for the ninth section, making a deduction on Government salaries.
