So the House refused to suspend the rules. Mr. Gurley, from the Committee on Printing, to whom the subject was referred, reported the following resolution, viz:

Resolved, That 50,000 extra copies of the report of the Committee on Expenditures in the Navy Department, and the resolutions thereon adopted by the House, together with a like number of the majority and minority reports, and the testimony taken before the Committee on Public Expenditures upon the subject of the public printing, be printed for the use of the members of the House: Provided, That these reports, resolutions, and the testimony, when thus printed, shall be bound in one volume, with the reports and testimony of the select committee, of which Hon. John Covode is chairman; but this resolution is not to be construed as embracing the report of the naval investigating committee made at the last session of Cougress.

Pending which,

Mr. Burnett moved to amend the same as follows: Insert after the words "together with” the words the report on naval contracts made by Mr. Bocock at the last session of Congress, excluding the testimony taken at that session, and also"; and strike out all after the word "chairman” to the end of the resolution.

Pending which,

Mr. Gurley moved the previous question; which was seconded and the main question ordered to be put.
