Speaker Carlisle sustained the said point of order on the ground that the motion to recommit was to the entire committee (including the conferreos on the part of the Senate); which said motion could not be executed for the reason that the said committee was no longer in existence. As a matter of official record the committee had agreed upon a report, which had been adopted by the Senate, had been submitted in the House, and was now under consideration. Under general parliamentary law such action--as in the case of a select committee—had the effect of dissolving the cou ference committee, and it could only be revived by appointment as originally constituted. The Chair was not aware of any parliamentary law or practice which authorized the recommitment of a conference report. The co jsideration of such reports was governed by different rules from all other legislative proceedings of the House. They could not be amended or divided or laid on the table as other reports, but must be adopted or rejected in their entirety, and such had been the almost unbroken practice of the House. If the report be rejected by the House, that would open the whole question to further conference, or such other action as the House might choose to take. For these reasons the Chair held the motion to recommit out of order.

“The request of a conference must always be by the house which is possessed of the papers."— Manual, p. 176.

• In all cises of conference asked after a vote of disagreement, eic., the conferrees of the house asking it are to leave the papers with the conferrees of the other.”—Manual, p. 176. And of course the report must be first made to the house agreeing to the conference.

See case when conference report was not received.—Journal, 1, 42, pp. 190, 191.
