Whereas, Since the last session of the legislature Ex-Senator Charles E. Townsend, after many years of loyal and sacrificial service to his State and Nation, has passed away;

Whereas, Senator Townsend was one of Michigan's greatest statesmen, a man of great courage and strict integrity, a loyal and steadfast friend, and one who, by his virtues, won the respect and affection of all who knew him; and

Whereas, In the death of Senator Townsend the State and Nation have sustained a severe and irreparable loss; therefore be it

Resolved, By the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That the members of the legislature of the State of which he was so proud, hereby, express their profound sorrow and record their sincere appreciation of his services and of his sterling character.

Resolved, That an engrossed copy of this resolution be transmitted to the family of the deceased.

A message was received from the House of Representatives transmitting
House bill No. 158 (file No. 44), entitled

A bill to amend sections 1 and 10 of Act No. 92 of the Public Acts of 1923, entitled "An act to regulate the sale, disposition, distribution and possession of certain habit forming drugs; to provide a procedure for the discovery of evidence of the violation of this act and to provide for penalties for the violation hereof," approved April 26th, 1923.

The message informed the Senate that the House of Representatives had passed the bill, in which action the concurrence of the Senate was requested.

A message was received from the House of Representatives returning the following concurrent resolution:

Senate concurrent resolution No. 9.
A resolution petitioning the Republican State Central Committee.

We learn with great regret that Dennis E. Alward, after more than thirty years' service as secretary of the Republican State Central committee, has been displaced by the State Central committee elected at the Republican state convention last week.

We know that throughout all that time Mr. Alward has given his service without compensation and without stint. He has been faithful and loyal to a party which he loves and believes in.

We know Mr. Alward to be the highest type of loyal Christian gentleman, the type which we would be glad to see more generally active in the politics of State and nation. Always efficient to the last degree and yet always clean, unpartisan, able Mr. Alward has been a source of real pride and of congratulation to the Republican party.

We believe that a mistake has been made which will seriously affect the fortunes of the Republican party hereafter. A just indignation has been aroused throughout Michigan, and we join in expressing our indignation at the action of the new State Central committee. Therefore be it

Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), That we urge upon the Republican State Central committee the advisability of quickly correcting the error made last week; that we urge that committee to quickly reassemble to reconsider its action; and that it restore Mr. Alward to the place which for so many years he has held with honor to himself and to the Republican party. And be it further

Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be sent to the chairman of the Republican State Central committee and each member, and be spread at large upon the Journals of the Senate and House.

The message informed the Senate that the House of Representatives had adopted the concurrent resolution.

The Secretary being called on expressed grateful acknowledgement of the honor done him by the two houses of the Legislature in the adoption of the foregoing resolution.

On motion of Mr. Horton

The remarks made by Secretary Alward were ordered to be spread upon the Journal, as follows:

"Out of my heart which is full to overflowing with gratitude, I give you and the members of the House of Representatives my sincerest thanks.

"You have honored me by your generous resolutions far more than I deserve. I admit that I have been a partisan but I know that in my party service I have done only what I conceived to be my duty as a citizen, in striving to uphold and make effective in the government of my State and country those principles which I believed were righteous principles and which, I was convinced, would bring most of prosperity and joy to all the people. Such service as that is the kind of partisanship I believe in. It is the kind that moves one to try to do the right as God gives him to see the right, and it is the kind that constrains one to accord to those who differ from him credit for the same sincerity of purpose that he claims for himself. Looking back I can discover many blunders which I have made, but in your kind partiality you refuse to count them against me now. I wish I might make myself believe that what little I have been able to do in the service of the Republican party merits your strong words of praise, but you make me proud just the same, and no words of mine can adequately express my appreciation of your commendation and your friendship.

“The party has never failed to be very good to me through all my manhood years and it makes my heart glad to have you tell me you think I have given something in return."
