So the 21st section as amended was adopted.

Mr. Dorsey, then moved to reconsider the vote of the Conven
tion just taken on the adoption of 21st section, for the purpose of
enabling him, as he stated, to offer the following amendment:

Strike out in 3rd line, "thirty-six hundred dollars," and insert
"as shall hereafter be prescribed by the Legislature;"

Mr. Davis, proceeded to make some remarks in favor of the
motion to reconsider;

When Mr. McHenry, rose to a point of order, that it was not in
order on a motion to reconsider, to discuss the merits of the pro
position;
Mr. Tuck, being in the chair, stated that it had been the practice
to allow such discussions, and therefore overruled the point of
order.

reconsider the vote of the Convention on the 21st section:

and being ordered appeared as follows

city, Kilgour, Brewer, Waters, Weber, Hollyday, Slicer and
