MR. CURTIS' SPEECH.
In the vote of confidence which has been extended to me by my selection as your presiding officer, there has been given the assurance which carries with it the conclusion that my efforts will meet with the support of the members, not only the majority, but the minority must come to my support, if the wishes of the people of Indiana are to be considered. Many embarassing circumstances will arise, but it is my hope that the people of Indiana will not be disappointed. Public expenditures will largely occupy our attention, be you Republican or Democrat, let us show to the people of Indiana that its Legislature is a business body, capable of caring for the wants of the people in an economical manner, always considering the demands which can not be ignored. As a presiding officer it · will afford me pleasure to approach the dignity of a judicial functionary as nearly as possible. Man is mortal and mistakes are common, therefore if my judgment at any time seems to be wrong, judge not too harshley, but lend me that aid and forbearance which will enable me to avoid future error. It is my hope to please the majority, and it is my sincere wish to please the minority. I am ready to be sworn in.
Whereupon Judge Hackney, of the Supreme Court of Indiana, administered the oath of office.
Nominations for Principal Clerk of the House being next in order, Charles Crawley, of Sullivan County, and Mr. Miller, of Hendricks County, were placed in nomination.
