has no fixed place for its meetings, this motion should include the place as well as the time for the next meeting, and in this case the place is subject to amendment as well as the time. When the assembly meets at the time to which it adjourned, the meeting is a continuation of the previous session. Thus, if the Annual Meeting is adjourned to meet on another day, the adjourned meeting is a legal continuation of the Annual Meeting. [See
.] The form of this motion is, I move that when we adjourn, (or stand adjourned) to 2 P. M. tomorrow.
17. To Adjourn.
The motion to adjourn (when unqualified) is always a privileged motion except when, for lack of provision for a future meeting, as in a mass meeting, or at the last meeting of a convention, its effect, if adopted, would be to dissolve the assembly permanently. In any organized society holding several regular meetings during the year, it is, when unqualified, always a privileged motion. When not privileged it is treated as any other main motion, being debatable and amendable, etc.
The privileged motion to adjourn takes precedence of all others, except the privileged motion to fix the time to which to adjourn, to which it yields. It is not debatable, nor can it be amended or have any other subsidiary [
] motion applied to it; nor can a vote on it be reconsidered. It may be withdrawn.
