There, if we had said as much as

we wouldn't be surprised to have the

paternity of tbe above, as soon as it
forgets tbe ordinary expressions of
manhood at a beastly outrage, and
recollects that tbe Solid South was
long accustomed to such brutality, in
its former Democratic days; and that
as it has recently returned to Demoe

saying: "The dog has returned to bis

On motion of Mr. Hamlin, the Seoate proceeded
to tbe corwi deration of tbe resolution submitted
by Mr. Blaine, in regard to tne inquiry aa to
wanner, me recent election, tne constitutional
rights of American citizens were violated.
Mr. Blaine took tbe floor and ipokrataome
aeugui in support oi we resolution.
Mr. Blaine's speech waa ai followr
Mb. Pbesidc.vt The pending resolution was
offered by me with a twofold purpose in view:
First To place on record in definite and au
thentic form, the frauds and outrages by which
recent elections were carried by the Democratic
party .in the Southern Stales.
Second To find if there be any method by
which a repetition of these crimes against free
ballot may be prevented.
The newspaper is the channel through which
the people of the United states are informed of
current events, and the accounts given in the
pness represent the elections in some of the South
ern stales to nave been accompanied by violence;
in not a few eases reaching the destruction of life:
to have been controlled by threats that awed and
intimidated a large class of voters; to have been
manipulated by fraud of tbe most shameless and
shameful description. Indeed, in South Caroli
na were seems to nave neen no election at all in
any proper sense of the term. Them m-. in.to.si
a senus of skirmishes over the Stale in which the
polling places were regarded as forts to be cap
tured by one party and held against the other .and
where this could not be done with convenience,
frauds in tbe count and tissue ballot devices were
resorted to in ordertoeffectuallv destroy the voice
of tbe majority. These in brief are th aocounts
given in tn non-partisan press, of the diivjraceful
outrages that attended tha recent elections, and
so far as I have seen, these statements are without
serious contradiction. It is but just and fair to
an panics. However, lust
AN IMPARTIAL INVESTIGATION
of the facta should be made by a committee of the
Senate, proceeding under tne authority of law,
and representing the power of tha nation. Hence
But we do not need investigation to establish
certain facts already of official record. V know
that 106 Representatives in Congress were recent
ly chosen in the States formerly slaveholding.and
that the Democrats elected 101 or possible lU2.and
the Republicans four or possibly five. We know
that thirty five of these Representatives were
signed to the Southern States by reason of the col
ored population, and that the entire political
power thus founded on the numbers of the color
ed people has been seized and appropriated to the
aggranuizemeni oi lis own strengin by the Demo
cratic party of t e South.
The issue thus raised before the country, Mr.
President, is not one of mere sentiment for tbe
rights of the negro though far distant be the day
when the rights of any American citizen, howev
er black or however poor, shall form the mere
dust of the balance in any controversy; nor is the
issue one that involves tbe waving of the "bloody
hi ' tnilllltth Alomn WA.na.,.,1.. ..f 1
era tic vituperation; nor still further is the issue
as now presented only a question of the equality
of the black voter of the South with the white
voter of the South; the issue, Mr. President, bas
laaen a tar wiaer range, one oi portentous magni
tude: and that is, whether the while voter oi the
North shall be equal to the white voter oi the
south in shaping the policy and fixing the des
tiny of the country; or whether, to put it still
more boldly, the while nun who fought in the
ranks of the Union army shall have as weighty
and influential a vote in the government of the
republic as the white man who fought in the
ranks of tbe rebel army. The one fought to up
hold, the other to destroy, the Union ot the
states, ana to-aay be who lougnt to destroy is
MORE IMPORTANT FACTOR
in tbe government of the nation than he who
foueht to nDhoid it...
Let me illustrate my meaning by comparing
groups of States of the same representative
strength North and South. Take the States of
South Carolina. Mississippi and Louisiana. Thev
send seventeen Re preventatives to Congress. Their
aggregate population is composed oi i,u3j,uuu
whites, and 1,224,000 colored, the colored being
nearly 200,000 in excess of the whites. Of the
seventeen Representatives, then, it is evident that
nine were apportioned to these States by reason
of their colored population, and only eight by
reason of their white population; and yet In the
choice of the entire seventeen Bepresentatlves the
colored voters had no more voice or power than
their remote kindred on the shores of Senegambia
or on the Gold Coast. The 1,035,000 white people
had the sole and absolute choice of the entire
seventeen Representatives. In contrast, take two
States in tne Jiorth, lowa and Wisconsin, with
seventeen Bepretentatives. They have a white
population of 2,247,000 considerably more than
double the entire white population of the three
Southern States I have named. In Iowa and Wis
consin, therefore, it takes 132.000 white population
to send a Representative to Congress, but In South
Carolina, Mississippi and lwiisisna every 60,000
white people send a Representative. In other
words, 60,000 white people in those Southern
States have precisely the same political power
in the government of the country that 132,000
white people have in lowa and Wisconsin.
Take another group of seventeen Representa
tives from the North and from the South. Geor
gia and Alabama have a white population of
1,158,000 and a colored population of 1,020.000.
They send seventeen Representatives to Congress,
of whom nine were apportioned on account of
the white population and eight on account of the
colored population. But the colored voters are
not able to choose a single Representative, the
white Democrats choosing the whole seventeen.
The four Northern States, Michigan, Minnesota,
Nebraska and California, have seventeen Repre
sentatives, based on a white population of 2,250,
000, or almost double the white population of
Georgia and Alabama, so that in these relative
groups of Suites we find the white man South ex
ercises by his vote
DOUBLE THE POLITICAL POWERS
of the white man North. Let us carry the com-
fuison to a more comprehensive generalisation,
he eleven States that formed the Confederate
government had by the last census a population
of 9,500,000, of which, in round numbers, &90,000
were white aud 4.000,000 colored. On this aggre
gate population seventy-three Representatives in
Congress were apportioned to those States forty
two or three oi which were by reason of the
white population, and thirty or thirty-one by
reason of the colored population. At the resent
election the white Democracy of the South seized
seventy of the seventy-three districts, and thus
secure a majority in the next House of Represen
tatives. Thus it appears that throughout the
States that formed the late Confederate Govern
ment 66,00 1 whites the very people that rebelled
against the Union are enabled to elect a Repre
sentative to Congress, while in the loyal States it
requires 132,000 of the white people that fought
for tbe Union to elect a Representative. In levy
ing every tax, therefore, in making every appro
priation of money, in fixing every line of public
policy, in decreeing what shall be the fate and
lortune of the republic, the Confederate soldier
south is enabled to cast a vote twice as powerful
and twice as influential as the vote of the Union
But tbe white men of the South did not s (-quire
and do not bold this superior power bv reason of
law or justice, but in disregard and defiance of
THE FOURTEENTH AMENDMENT
to the Constitution waa expected to be and wa

applicable to tne cae is instructive and suggessive

The patent, undeniable intent of this provMoo
was that if any class of voters wer rimuwt
any way abridged in their right of suffrage, then
the class so denied or abridged should not be
counted in the basis of representation; or 4n other
words, that no Stale or States should gain a kvrre
iuctcbk 01 representation in i on rn as by reason of
counting any class of population not permitted
to take part in electing such AUpreaenrntiveaT
But the construction given to this piovanoa
that before any forfeiture of representation can
be enforced the denial or abridgment of suffrage
must be the result of a law specifically enacted
by the State. Under this construction every
negro wcr wmj rate uu suixrage absolutely
denied or fatally abridged by the violence, actual
or threatened, of irresponsibla mobs, or by frauds
and deceptions of State officers from the Governor
down to the last election clerk, and then, unless
some Stale law can be shown that authorises the
denial or abridgment, the Ctate escapes all pen
alty or peril of reduced itpiuitBlatton. Tnta
construction may be upheld by the courts, ruling
on the letter of the law, "which killeth," but tha
spirit of justice cries aloud against the evasive
and atrocious conclusion that deals out oppres

doubt if it be in the power of the most searching
investigation to show that in anv Southern Stale
during the period of Republican control any legal
voter was ever debaned from the freest exercise
of his eunrare. Even the menses which would
have leaped into life with many who despised the
negro were ounw out 01 signt witn a magnani
mity which the "superiot race" fail to follow and

equal gravity prevails in Northern elections.
hear it in many quarters and read it in the papers
that in the late exciting election ir Massachusetts

rancorous as in the South, were yet as widespread
I have read, and yet I refuse to believe, that the
distinguished gentleman who made an energetic
bat unsuccessful canvass for the Governorship of
that State, has indorsed and approved th
chama. and I have accordlnelv made mr resolu
tion broad enough to include their thorough in
vestigation. I am not demanding fair elections
in the South without demanding
FAIR ELECTIONS IN THE NORTH
also. But venturing to speak for the Xew Eng
land States, of whose laws and customs I know
something, I dare assert that In tbe late election
in Massachusetts, arany of her neighboring com
monwealths, it will be impossible to find even
on case where a voter was driven from the polls
where a voter did not have the fullest, fairest,
freest opportunity to cast the ballot of his choice
ana nave 11 nonesuy and faithfullv counted in
the returns. Suffrage on this continent was first
made universal in New England, and in the ad
ministration of their affairs her people have
found no other appeal necessary than that which
is addressed to their honesty of conviction and to
their intelligent self-interest. If there be any
thing different to disclose, I pray you show it to
us inu we may amena our wars.
But whenever a feeble protest is made against
sucn injustice as 1 nave a even tied in tne souin.
me respond we get comes to us in me lorm 01
taunt. "What are you going to do about tr!" and
"How ' o you propose to help yourselves?" This
is tbe stereotyed answer of defiance which in
trenched wrong always lives to inauiriru iustice.
and those who Imagine It to ba conclusive do not
know the temper of the American people. For
let me assure you that against the complicated
outrage upon the right oi representation lately
(numpnani in ine souin. mere will be arraved
many phases of public opinion to the North not
onen nitneito in narmony. Men wbo nave cared

negro of his tights under a common constitution
and common laws. Men who nave expressed

are beginning to perceive that the pending ques
tion 01 waay reiaics more pressmgiy to tne
EQUALITY OF WHITE MEN
under this government, and that however care
less tnev may be about tbe riahts or wrones of the
negro, they are vary jealous and tenacious about
tbe rights of their own race and tha dignity of
their own ore sides and their own kindred.
I know something of public opinion in the
North. 1 know a great deal about the views,
wishes, and purposes of tbe Republican partv ol
the nation, within that entire great organization
there is not one man, whose opinion is entitled to
be ouoted. that does not desire peace and har
mony and friendship and a patriotic and fratei
nai union nevween we norm ana tne souin.
This wish is spontaneous, instinctive, universal
throughout the Northern States; and yet, among
men of character and sense, there is surely no
need of attempting to deceive ourselves aa to the
precise truth. First pure, then peaceable. Gush
will not remove a grievance, and no disguise of
State rights will close the eyes of our people to
the necessity of correcting a great national wrong.
Nor should the South make the fatal mistake of
concluding that injustice to the negro is net also
injustice to the white man; nor should it ever be
forgotten that for tha wrongs of both a remedy
will assuredly be found. The war with all its cost
ly sacrifices, waa fought in vain unless equal rights
for all classes be establisned in all the states of ths
Union. And now, in words which are those of
friendship, however differently they may be aceep
ted, I tell tbe men of the South here on this floor,
and bevond this chamber, that even if they could
strip the negro of his constitutional rights, they can
never permanently maintain the inequality of
white men m this nation: they can never make a
white man's rot in the South doubly as powerful
in the administration of the government as a white
man's vote in ine Aonn.

wives, sweethearts and other invited

the herald announced tbe approach of
the Grand officers, who were received
with the grand honors and the work
of dedication commenced. It wa ex
pected np till Saturday last, that the
Grand Master of the State wonld be
present and take charge of tbe cere

On Robert Ingersoll or the Problem of
On Ltst Fridav evening Eev Francis
Pavics delivered his second lecture, en
titled "Robert Ingersoll, or the Problem
of Infidelity," at the M E Church. He
was greeted by a large audience, even
larger than cpon the occasion "cf his first
lecture, and for two hours he interesteil
the assemblage with a discourse on the
Those who attended the lecture ex
pecting to hear Ingersoll and his theo
ries teachings and practice taken np,
torn to shreds, and scattered to the four
winds, were disappointed. No reference
was made to Ingersoll except as to his
organism, bis antecedents, birth and
surroundiogs, supposed causes of his in
fidelity. Xo attempt wits made to dissi
pate his infidelity, and no allusion was
made to any of his sayings with but one
The lecturer commenced his remarks
with a pretty illustration of the origin
and growth of infidelity in this country,
and then took up IngersolL He said
that although he meant to confine him
self to Ingersoll as an infidel, and ta a
criticism on his infidelity, still he be
lieved him to be a rank atheist. He was
rouch and very profane in his lectures,
and ladies attending them would know
what to expect. Large audiences at Cin
cinna'i laughed at and applauded him.
but these audiences were composed of
the veiy bottom of Cincinnati society.
Not a single paragraph of Ingersoll's
most noted sayings and writings was
original with him, unless it might be a
flight of word painting or rhetoric. Ev
erything elae that emanated from him
was original with Thomas Payne, Vol
taire, Kosseau, or some of the other not
ed infidels of history. Ingersoll himself,
he said, is not an original thinker, but is
a mere smatterer, a dabbler in scientific
terms, and the use he makes of them is
just sufficient to make himself ridiculous.
He says, "if I were God, I would make
good health contagious instead of dis
ease." No human being has any right to
dictate to God, or to say what they would
do if they were God. The shameless
boldness of the man is unbounded. He
is not aware of the great and good pur
pose God had in view in causing disease
and making it contagious, and any one
ignorant of the purpose of an act should
not and has no right to criticise it That
was not the way at alL
The speaker said that he was ashamed
of the thunderous American applause
that greeted Ingersoll in New York and
Cincinnati, which was so much tbe
louder the more clumsy and ridiculous
he made himself in his logic. He has a
wsv of making a.fallacv appirently a
truth, but in all cases reasoning will es
tablish the fallacy. Ingersoll is no rea-
soner, never uses end never has used
reason, in any of his efforts, with the ex
ception of his speech on the nomination
of Blaine for the Presidenrv. at the Re-
... v , .. .
puDucan xxauonai convenuon at uin-
cinnau. ae uses toe wrong system oi
He uses tbe wrong system
logic, the deductive method, which is the
wrong method of reasoning. The indue
tive method is the only method for a
logician to use. The soul of Ingersoll's
infidelity is a vicious, logical system, its
body, a blazing rhetoric.
The lecturer then went on to explain
by what process Ingersoll became an in
fidel. He said that seed, soil and zone
were very important questions in the
growth of animals and vegetables, and
that they were likewise important ques
tions in the growth of the human family,
Everything depended upon birth, train
ing and surroundings. When a man was
born of good parents, trained well, and
surrounded by good acquaintances and
associates, then he was a natural saint,
good, pious and so on. But when bis
birth, training and surroundings were
un propitious, then followed a harvest of
Paynes, oltaires, Rosseaus and Inger
soil's. The direct cause of Ingersoll's
infidelity may be traced U his bad birth,
bad training and bad surroundings. The
speaker said that Robert was bald, that
his Creator probably thought there was
enough between him and heaven without
putting hair on his head. ' His head was
flat on top. showing frpm a phrenological
point of view, the absence of -the bump I
, . . , ,
of veneration.. The heads of Payne, Vol-
taire, Rosseau, and other infidels possess-
ed the same peculiarity. Ingersoll's
father was not a good man, and though
an Evangelicel minister, he was a bad
man to have in the parsonage Robert
didn't like him. The common explana
tion given why minister's children are,
as a rule, apparently worse than other
is because they are looked to more as
examples, and their conduct is more
conspicuous and criticized more than
other people s children. This may be
true in part, but is not wholly so. It is
more apt to be that they are bad from
bad example at borne. That while their
parents were christians away from home
and teaching others to be good, at home
they were not exactly what they ought
to be, and children have eyes. Ingersoll
is a jovial, good fellow, fond of beer and
lively company, while his mother was a
solemn, melancholy individual, with a
long face, and mouth perpetually drawn
down at the corners. When a circus
was in town, Robert, boylike, would be
wild to go, but his mother in a groaning
whining manner, would forbid him do
ing so with "Oh no, Robert, eircusses are
bad, wicked things; stay at home, and
I'll take you to s:e your grandmother's
Young people were not bad so much
because of the devil in them, as because
religion and goodness is made so unat
tractive to them. The young are censur
ed and wonder ed,at. for not attending
prayer meetings more than they da This
is not surprising. So long as tbe features
oi prayer meetings are long, grave and
mournful exhortation, and stereotyped
prayers made over and over again, year
in and year out, just so long will they re
main repellent to the young. It is the
same way with class meetings. A fossil
ized old member of tbe church will arise
and begin a recital of his experience
commencing with: "I have been a mem
ber of the Methodist Church for so many
years.'' and so on, always repeating the
same speech, never making any changes
with the exception of the number of
years he has been a member of the

of fifty, forty. th:r'- trnty or cen ten
years ago. The Jj in out of sectarianism
he illustrated by reference to a couple of
political cartoons he hid teen in an old
English periodical, published during the
controversies between the folio wera of
Pitt, Fox and Burke. In the nrst cartoon
there were three divisions. The Pittites
were separated from tbe Foxites by a high
brick wall, through which the Pittites
had worked a hole and inserted a long
iron rod, wiih which they were prodding
the Foxites in the sides end back, and
causiDg them to squirm around to get
out of the reach of the rod. On the other
side the Burkeites and Foxites were sep
arated by a thick thorn hedge, behind
which the Burkeites were making snow
balls and throwing oyer the hedge
at the Foxites. Sometimes a ball would
strike a Foxite and fall crumbling down
bis back, causiDg a disagreeable shiver to
piss over bis frame. The second cartoon
showed a great change. The high brick
wall, the iron rod, and the thics: thorn
hedge ,had disappeared and all was peace.
Ths Pittites, Foxites and Burkeites were
simply separated by low and beautiful
beds of flowers. Such had formerly been
the condition of the churches, and such
has been the change in bigotry and sec
tarianism. Walls and hedges no longer
separate the different denominations
Brickbats and snowballs are no longer
burled at one another, and the prodding
iron rods have disappeared. Tnis could
be said of all the churches of to day un
leas it be with the exception of the Roman
Catholic church. The speaker expects
to see even a greater change.
In speaking ot the hypocrisy, bigotry
and sectarianism of tbe world, the lectu
rer said that his astonishment was that
there were so few Robert Ingereolls; and
he wondered that there were not hund
reds more manufactured than there are.
He then spoke of Joseph Cook, Henry
Ward Reecher.Talmadge.their work and
wnat it aecompiiohes ; but there was
something more wanted than Cooks,
Beechers and Taimadges, and that was a
good life. Get a Christianity, said tbe
speaker, that will make men, that will
go to all parts of the earth making its
own way. It will leave no room for In
gersolls or infidelity. He compared
Ingersoll to a man who went to hear
Theodore Thomas' great orchestra atone
ot the hill top resorts in Cincinnati. The
man listened to the musicians tuning
their instruments preparatory to the
rendition of come grand piece of music,
and thinking that the turning of screws,
squeaking of strings, and scraping of
bows was the orchestra in full blast,
turned to a bystander with the remark
that he didn't think that the music
amounted to much. So it is with Inger
solL It is tbe tuning up by the Al
mighty for the grand outburst of music
that is to follow that he finds fault with,
The scraping of the bows, squeaking of
tne strings, and tigh'.ning of tne screws
of tne machinery of the universe, is all
that he sees or hears. Of tne grand
programme for which the Almighty is
preparing he has not the remotest con
