ACTION OF THE SENATE.
SESSION OF AUGUST 3, 1892.
Mr. PROCTOR. I present the memorial of Hon. John W. Hoyt in regard to a National University, with an accompanying document, which is a very valuable historical statement on that subject. I move that it be printed and referred to the Select Committee to Establish the University of the United States.
The motion was agreed to.
Mr. SHERMAN. I move that 5,000 extra copies of the document be printed for the use of the Senate, and that the motion be referred to the Committee on Printing.
The VICE-PRESIDENT. Will the Senator from Ohio please repeat his statement ? The Chair did not hear it.
Mr. SHERMAN. The Senator from Vermont presented a memorial accompanied by a very valuable document in regard to the National University and moved that it be referred to the committee on that subject, of which I happen to be a member, and printed. I move that 5,000 extra copies may be printed for the use of the Senate. I do not know what it will cost to print that number. I ask that the motion to print extra copies be referred to the Committee on Printing.
The VICE-PRESIDENT. That order will be made in the absence of objection.
