125 years ago today - Thursday, Mar 9, 1899

[Rudger Clawson]
Today is the last day of the legislature and the members are trying hard to elect a senator. It requires 32 votes to elect. A[lfred]. W. McCune has received 29, and Pres. Cannon, whose name was sprung on Wednesday for the first time, received 13 and later 15 and 23 votes.

[No senator was elected, and Utah continued with just one senator]
