Session Notes: Ignatius F. O'Ferrall and Orlando B. Bryant's election to Senate District 9 was contested by Reuben Wells and Henry W. Holley. O'Ferrall and Bryant had certificates of election that were the result of a Minnesota Supreme Court order. They were sworn in when session began. On January 6, 1860 the Senate determined that the court didn't have the authority to determine the membership of the Senate and they decided that Reuben Wells and Henry W. Holley were entitled to the seats.
