Governor Hampton made a clean
PWeep:ad removed all the Chamber.
lain Treasrert and Auditors. He has
now turned loose on the Trial Jus
tices, and soon there wiN be none of
them left. Let the official pruning
kpiife be applied. vigoously, and the
body politic puriffed.
The Electoral Tribunal.
Louisiana, like Florida, has gone
ghmmering for Hayes. In the Flori,
da case, Joe Bradley, the fifth Judge
and Piesident maker, voted with the
Demo6rats to inquire into the eli.
gibility of 71=9phreys. but when it
came to Louisiana, he voted against
the same proposition. . In the Florida
caso he knew Humphreys would be
able to prove his eligibility, but when
it came to Louisiana, he know that if
he voted to inquire into the eligibility
of the electors Hayes would lo0, and
he stultified himself by voting against
inquiry. The clectoralj tribunal was
raised with the express understand..
ing by both parties that a;fair and im
partial investigation should be had,
and the electoral votes of the disputed
States given to the candidate shown
to havA received them. But the Re
publicans having one majority on the
tr- bunal, refuse' any investigation
and take the returns of the Returning
Boards as conclusive, thus attempting
0 legalize one of the most glaring
frauds ever committed. They have
done just what the chief conspirators
in Washington said Ferry should do
count in Hayes at all hazards. To
avoid this usurpation of power by the
presiding officer of the Senate, the
Democrats consented to the tribunal,
where it was thought that justice
could bd obtained, and the man whom
the 'people had elected could be pea,
ceably declared the President of the
United States. But in Joe Bradley
they have found an infamous and
willing tool, and the consumation 01
the conspiracy goes bravely on. Who!
Oregon is reached, if the Radicals aci
consistently with their action in tht
Louisia na case, they will be obligec
to give Tildon one vote, which would
eloct him. But Joe, the fifth Judge,
will be true to his party, and change
his vote again. They wil[ then go
hohinid the certificates of Governor
Grover, declare that Cronan was not
olligible, and give the three votes of
that State to Hayes, and the conspi
racy will be accomplished. Then the
United States will have a fraudulent
PresIdent-a'man,awho;was not elect,.
The Cincinnati Enquirer is disgust-.
ed with the Electoral Commission. It
urges the Democratic members to re
f rain fr.om further participation in its
p)roceedings and calls upon the House
to throw every obstacle in the way of
the count, and to repudiate the des
cision when made. This will never
do. We share the Enquiror's disgust
b't we by no means endorse the
counsel it gives to Democratic mem,
bers of Congress. Whatever the do.
casion of the Commission may be we
will have to accept it as a final settle,.
ment of the question at issue. It is
too late now to make a fight. The
Democratic members of Congress
made the bill a law; the country sus
tained their action; and if the result
be Hayes we must swallow the bit
ter pill as best we may.
Prof essor Soelye, of Massachusetts
was the only Republican in the House
who voted against Justice Bradley's
vote, declaring that Florida be count

tigation, which would satisfy the
