The PRESIDENT -The honorable senator cannot make a speech, and then say that he will not move his motion.

Senator Col NEILD - I ask leave to withdraw the motion. I was not making a speech in the way of advocating the motion, but was explaining what I wished to do.*

The PRESIDENT -The honorable senator was either moving his motion, or he was out of order.

Senator Col NEILD - I am afraid I was out of order under your ruling, and I apologize for it.

The PRESIDENT - Does any honorable senator second the motion ?

Senator Col NEILD - I have not moved it.

The PRESIDENT - The honorable senator has moved it. He had no right to speak at all unless he was moving the motion. The motion is not seconded, and, therefore, it falls to the ground.
