E. St. Julien Cox accompanied by his counsel, appeared at the bar of the Senate, and took the seats assigned them.
The PRESIDENT pro tem. Are there any resolutions or motions to be offered before proceeding with the regular order of business?
Mr. Manager Collins. Mr. President, I would like to be heard a moment on this question of printing. We have here the journal of last Thursday, the fortieth day. The journal of Friday is not here, and I would suggest that some action with reference to it be taken by the Senate-perhaps that the Sergeant-at-Arms be sent down with instructions to expedite the printing of it, so as to get it here as soon as possible. It is almost impossible for counsel to discuss this case intelligently, without the printed evidence, and we ought to have it here. It ought to have been here to-day ; there is no reason for the delay.
The PRESIDENT pro tem. I understood this morning from the reporter that it was already printed and that he had seen it.

Have those been examined to ascertain whether or not the journals for Friday are in the bottom of the package?
Mr. ARCTANDER. No, sir ; the printer has informed me that the journals would not be here until about noon. I have just come from there.
The PRESIDENT pro tem. What is the pleasure of the Senate with reference to the request of counsel ?
Senator GILFILLAN, C. D. I see there is only one officer here this
