Σελίδα 40 - The previous question being moved and seconded, the question from the Chair shall be, "Shall the main question be now put?
Σελίδα 50 - The one party being gone forth, the Speaker names two tellers from the affirmative and two from the negative side, who first count those sitting in the House and report the number to the Speaker. Then they place themselves within the door, two on each side, and count those who went forth as they come in, and report the number to the Speaker. Mem. in Hakew., 26.

Σελίδα 9 - ... that all public functionaries are essentially invested with the powers of selfpreservation ; that they have an inherent right to do all acts necessary to keep themselves in a condition to discharge the trusts confided to them; that whenever authorities are given, the means of carrying them into execution are given by necessary implication...
