24 Mr. Lowery moved that said bill be recommitted to the committee of the whole.

The President put the question whether the Senate would agree to said motion to recommit, and it was decided in the affirmative.

A message from His Excelleucy the Governor was received and read in the words following:

EXECUTIVE CHAMBER,

ALBANY, February 6, 1872. To the Senate :

I return, without approval, the Senate bill No. 11, entitled "An act to amend an act entitled An act to establish a recorder's court in the city of Utica, and for other purposes,' passed May 7, 1844.” The bill proposes to increase the salary of the recorder of Utica to two thousand five hundred dollars. The Legislature fixed this salary at eighteen hundred dollars. There is nothing in the events of the past two years to render insufficient now what was deemed to be and was sufficient then.

The bill imposes one-half of this salary as a charge upon the county of Oneida; the other half to be paid by the city of Utica. The common council of Utica approve of the bill, giving as one reason for so doing that only half the burden is imposed upon the city. The mayor and many citizens protest against it. The supervisors representing the rural towns have not approved of it or asked for it.

It seems to me there is nothing to justify a law obliging the local authorities of Oneida county to enlarge this salary; there being no evidence that the people interested desire it. I am satisfied that the people generally do not favor an increase of official salaries at this time, except when the same are clearly inadequate to the service performed.

JOHN T. HOFFMAN. Mr. Tiemann moved to lay the message and bill upon the table.

The President put the question whether the Senate would agree to said motion, and it was decided in the affirmative.

By unanimous consent, Mr. Palmer asked and obtained leave to introduoe a bill entitled "An act declaring it uplawful to sell intoxicating
