Mr. Watson moved that the bill be given immediate effect.
The motion prevailed, two-thirds of all the members-elect voting therefor.

Mr. Culver, having reserved the right to explain his vote, made the following statement:

"I refrained from voting on this bill because I did not like to vote against the bill in which Senator Penney, who is one of my oldest friends in the Legislature, is very much interested. I only voted because my vote was demanded. Under the circumstances, I could do nothing else but vote 'no', because I am satisfied that this bill is an attempt to impair the obligation of contracts and an attempt to make a retroactive law, and, with the amendment which the House adopted this morning struck out, absolutely unconstitutional."
