iiana correspondent of the New York
Tnhun telegraphs that the Republicans
admit a majority ot votes actually cast to
be againt them. If the l'n'bn.tn
meant what it said, it ought now to de
mand that the electoral vote of I.ouisana
he given to Mr. Til den, and Mr. Tildeu
b declared president. That i tlie judg
ment of all fair-minded men.
Tin; man who stands by in Louisiana
and sees fraud done without prototing,
it dead from that hour. His political fu
ture is closed as with a stone w all. lie
will go marked to bis grave, and the
American people will never trust him
uirain. The shrewd Republicans know
thi, aud that is why tiio Republicans
now in New Orleans are mostly lools or
knaves fools who never had a future, or
knaves who hare no future left. The de
cent Republicans know what Kellogg
and the returning board are capable of,
aud they keep as far away lrom New r
leans as possible.
Do thk people of the north realize
f Hat Mr. Tllden has received a majority
of the popular vote in Louisiana r Do
ttiey realize that all the Republican
claims of majorities telegraphed north
from that slate were based simply upon
the determination to throw out votes
euough to make them good ': Scarcely a
word was said In these dispatches of the
charges ol intimidation and fraud made
Kint-e. They were bold claims of actual
majorities, made in order to keep up con
fidence' in the north until n scheme of
fraud could be matured. Now the Re
publican correspondents in Louisiana
admit that a majority of tlie vote cast Is
against them, aud yet declare that the
elector! rote of the state will be given
to Hayes! Could there be anything
more infamous than this?

It ha already l-eii
by the more impartial of the Republican
correspondents now in New Orleans,
that the vote of the ftate as cist give a
decisive Democratic majority. Rut this,
however, was to be transfcred into a Re
publican majority by throwing out the
vote of live parishes where intimidation
and violencj are alleged to have pre
vented Republicans from voting. This
was audacious enough, hut the latct
phase of the Louisiana trouble bids fair
to outstrip all known feats of brazen !
fraud. A correspondent of the New
York Trihiinr ' jelegraphs that "a grave
doubt now exisjs in regard to their being
a Republican, majority in the remaining
parMiC. even niter me omission
ot tin; vote In Last and West
Feliciana, Ka-t Raton Rouge,
Ouachita and Morehouse parishes."
These are the live parishes whose votes
were to be thrown out to give the sta'e
to Hayes. The correspondent contin
ues : "A table prepared by prominent
Republicans of this city, who have excel"
lent opportunities for obtaining correct
information, makes the stat? very das',
witfio'if the vote of the parishes named.''
The correspondent naively add : "It
must not be concluded from this that the
proj-pect of the Democrats carrying the
state has been improved.'' To be sure!
Who would draw such a conclusion with
Kellogg's rtitttrning board in existence?
Tildeu might have carried every parish
in the state, and Hayes would be sure of
theeleetoral vote just assure as the men
who are gotng to steal it for him will be

The present political ciisis reminds us
somewhat of the fable about the grave
of the prophet Mohamed at Mecca. The
casket containing his body was said to be
suspended In the air, by the hand of
Allah, thus preserving it from contami
nation. The secret of the susjendcd
casket consisted simply iu the Ingenious
arrangement of two magnets between
which the casket, which was made of
iron, was so nicely balanced that for cen
turies it hung there, the object et tho

The pa.-t two weeks have really seemed

Like Mohamed's casket, the result ot the

side or the other, thus promising to put
an end to all suspense, but in the next
