The resolution was as follows: Resolved by this Assembly:

That the Joint Rules of the Senate and House of Representatives in force at the close of the 1917 session of the General Assembly be and they are hereby adopted as the Joint Rules of the House and Senate of this Assembly.

HOUSE RESOLUTION House Resolution No. 2. Introduced by Mr. Peasley of Cheshire, a resolution concerning the Senate.

On motion of Mr. Peasley of Cheshire, the resolution was adopted.

The resolution was as follows: Resolved by this House:

That a committee of two Representatives be appointed by the Chair to wait upon the Senate and inform that body that the House is ready to meet the Senate in Joint Convention.

The Chair appointed as such committee Messrs. Peasley of Cheshire and Geary of Waterford.

The committee subsequently appeared in the Hall of the House and reported that they had discharged the duties assigned to them and that the Senate would meet the House in Joint Convention forthwith.

JOINT CONVENTION The Honorable Senate, preceded by the President, the Honorable Clifford B. Wilson, and the Clerk of the Senate, entered the Hall of the House and met the House in Joint Convention.

Senator Klett of the Sixth District offered a resolution raising a committee of one Senator and two Representatives to inform the Governor that the Senate and House of Representatives were in convention for the purpose of receiving any communication he might choose to make. The resolution was adopted. Senator Klett of the Sixth District and Messrs. Peasley of Cheshire and Geary of Waterford were appointed as such committee. The committee soon reported that they had performed the duties assigned to them and had been informed that His Excellency the Governor would soon come into the convention. Immediately thereafter His Excellency entered the Hall of the House and met the House and Senate in convention, and delivered the following message: Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, and Members of the General As

sembly: It is common knowledge that today many thousands of our electors who are in the military and naval service of the United States are absent from this state on the battle front in France or in cantonments in other states being trained to take their places at the front.

They are Connecticut's fighting forces. There are approximately thirty thousand of them now, and this number will be largely increased prior to the election next November, and they may be absent at the next and possibly succeeding November elections. It is certain they will not return until the task before them is completed.

I know that the sentiment of this General Assembly is unanimous in favor of giving these absent soldier and sailor electors the opportunity to vote, and it is for this purpose I have called you together pursuant to the provision in our constitution empowering the Governor to convene the General Assembly in special session in case of special emergency.

As you have convened for this special purpose it is obvious that no other legislation should be considered or could be legally enacted at this special session.

Upon the dissolution of the Convention, the Speaker resumed the Chair and made the following report, which was read by the Clerk:

Gentlemen of the House of Representatives :

It is my duty to report to you the proceedings of the Joint Convention.

Upon the invitation of the House, the Senate met the House in convention for the purpose of receiving any communication which His Excellency the Governor, might be pleased to make.

His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor, presided over the convention. The Clerk of the Senate and the Clerk of the House were secretaries of the convention. Prayer was offered by the Rev. Warren F. Cook of New Britain, Chaplain of the Senate.

Senator Klett of the Sixth District offered a resolution raising a committee of one Senator and two Representatives to inform the Governor that the Senate and House of Representatives were in convention for the purpose of receiving any communication he might choose to make. The resolution was passed, and Senator Klett of the Sixth District, and Messrs. Peasley of Cheshire and Geary of Waterford were appointed as such committee.

The committee soon reported that they had performed the duties assigned to them and had been informed that the Governor would soon come into the convention.

Immediately thereafter, His Excellency entered the Hall of the House and met the two houses in convention.

His Excellency then proceeded to read his message to the
