WHAT A COKRHSl'ONDKNT SAYS.
Nkw OnLi:As, Nov. 2S. The Kepub
licans played their trump card to-day,
with careful attention to dram its.' effect.
It was the case of Kii:t Piaktcn, of
Ouachita parish, who testifies that on the
night of Saturday, Nov. 4, her husband
and cliij 1 were killed by Democrats, her
child's throat cut, and herself outraged
and maimed. The board had set to-day,
lor Kat Baton llonge, a case on which
the j'Ctnocrats were fully prepared to cu
ter. Uut as yesterday their promise was
broken and an" investigation ot Ouach
ita for which the Democrats were not
feady, their witnesses noticing expected
Untill this evening was begun. The
llepublicans then brought out their two
Itrongest caes of Intimidation, those of
of James and Pinkton, laying a partic
ular strc upon that of Pinkston, the
woman whose hnsband had been mur
dered. She was brought in on a sofa,
and was truly In a condition to exeire
sympathy. The outrage was oix with
out a siuglo pallatlng circumitaBjC. It
is denounced here by everylMxly, and tlw
Democrats go even further than the Re
publicans, alike in its condemnation and
in demanding that the aflaur shall be in
vestigated and the perpetrator punished
to the extent of the law. Said Gov. Pal
mer: "If I were Gov. Kellogg, I would
hang the men w ho killed Henry Pinks
ton, or hang myse'f." Hut this suggest
a damning fact, to the discredit ot the
Kellogg- government.' that,'., although
they protess to have had knowledge of
this murder for three week , and
to my know ledge the Republican com
mittee has been lurslng It fourteen days,
no effort has been made to bring the ac
cused to Jiuth-e; this, wotwitbiitanding
the fact that all the, umblnery of juttlee, !
throngu the state courts, Is iu- the hands
of the governor, and Sheridan and his
army are under his orders.
Again, when tho cae was broached be
fore the board to day, it was UB'TilJeu
commissioners and the Democratic coun
sel w ho demanded the ijiOit thorough in
vestigation ; while Judge Kelley, Gen.
While ami Mr. Hale, of tho Republican
comuhtu-e, oppo'U jt nt the urgent re.
quest of the Republican counsel, in fact,
Mr. Sherman was tho only Republican
who supported tho Democratic demand.
The board, alter hearing one side, per
emptorily closed the Joor ( investiga
tion on the ground that it waa a matter
for the" courts.. lt U probable "that" the
lemociats will Insist to-morrow that the
ease shall be probed to the bottom, they
being coulldent ot their ability to prove
that politics had nothing to do with the
murder, .and that tins statement ot the,
woman a to material circum!;Unce8 is
false, and thut the crime was In nowise
political until it wa iiitered through the
This fUiC eiue to my knowledge ev
iral days ago, and, horrilled by the story,
1 begun at once an Investigation to get at
tlin truth. 1 found Uiat tint man had un

To-night the " Democratic witnesses
fVoiu Onachiia arrived. Among thttu
are several ot the whites w ho are now ac-r-nt-d
of the crime, cud they all com tin
vetigaiion. I talked with Mi. Tidwell.
on whose place Pinkston "lived. Ho Is a
Venerable gentleman, who takes little in
terest in politics, .lie give. a very good
character to Pinkston, but a very bad
otic to his wife. ? She had been in prison
for some petty oflense, and had confessed
attempting to murder her mother-in-law,
for which she was tried. The old
lady had aggravated h?r, she said, and so
she threw n quilt over her head ami-beat
her with rocks until she thought her
dead. Tidwell says when she came to
his house on the morning of the murder,
she said that a negro with whom her hus
band had had a tight did it! lat-ir in the
day, that Radical negroes from neighbor-'
ing plantations did It, because she (Mrs.
Pinkston) was such a Demo?rat ; in the
evening, that twenty-five white men
were the, murderers. He examined the
body of the deceit sed, and It w as not mu
tilated, as charged in her statement to
day. He also fished the baby's body out
of the lake, and its throat was not cut,
nor was-there any marks on it. She
told him that she went to tho help of her
husband with the baby in her arm, and
it was struck and killed in the sen tile.
Nobody in the neighborhood had heard
apolitical complexion given to Jthe out
rage, until the storv wmc from New
. Other gentlemen w ith whom I talked
arc ready to testify that Eliza Pinkston
was a rabid Democrat, and they heard
her curse a Republican speaker in open
meeting, just before the electon, in lan
guage unfit for publication, afterward
trying to borrow a pistol to hhMt him.
All attempts to connect politics with this
aflalrfall to the ground, and I say it alter
careful investigation begun with i the b
horrenee ot tuchan outrage, and the
conviction that it was a crime chargeable
to the Democrats.

ljieciul to the i ouner-lyi.i nl. ) . -
New Orleans, Nov., 29. The !: veil
ing l'emticrnt accuses John Ray, Frank
Morey and O. II. Brewster ot having put
up the Pinkston caspt and declares, that
the facta ot tlieir past career prove them
to be capable of mck a crime. The re
ports seut irom here in regard to Oov.
Palmer's po-ition and views do great In- j
justice to that gentleman. 1 called on
Jov. Palmer to-day, and t obtained from
him a statement which will effectually
set at rest the Injurious reports. H
ft is unquestiniole that the Pinkston
murder had no connection with politics.
The tcstimonj shows conclusively that
the assault wsu iroiwptd by purely per
sonal motives ; that the maa was well es
teemed among his white hultrhbors ; was
in no sense an active politician, and had
never given any cause for resentment
ngajnat him on the part cf thohitcs.
The probabilities, ns indicated by tho re--,
timony, are that the murder was com
mitted by - Alex. Hrooks and his friends,
Rrooks being a negro, between whom
and Pinkston a deadly feud had existed,
i diil say that the question presented by
this case was one entirely disconnected
with the pre-idency, from Tllden, from
Hayes and from political controversies,
that it was a question which appealed to
humanity, and that 1 did not wish
to live w here such things coulud happen
wiiuoui being mane tne suuiecxpi inves
tigation, and wurrcthe- authorities took
no measures to punish the guilty perpe
trators. . 1 declared, and still declare,
that it was the duty ol that board to caste
asiJe all political considerations aad to
make a thorough Investigation of this
aise. 1 suggested tiiat they ought to
designate one member to sit In private, if
necessary, to hear the testimony, to tlx
the guilt where it belongs, and to give
the accused iiersnna an opportunity to ex
culpate themselves. One of the worst
features ot the affair was the relhsal of
tbe board to pcrmir this thorough Inves
tigation, and the strenuous attempt to ex
clude nil testimony on the Democratic
bide. So determined was thii effort that
it necessarily led to the inference that the
persons who put forward the story dis
believed It themselves, as far as its politi
cal aspects were concerned. I think that
lov. Weill himself believes it to bo false.
1 utn thoroughly convinced that the white
men accused by the negroes had nothing
at all to do with the atlair. and that as to
them the story Is pure fiction.
Oov. llbrler thoroughly ronrnrf with
Oov. Palmer's, views in rejmiou to tho
I'viiin-.n njet.-Ts oi mc ease. .Mr. ."smith
hi the same opinion.
Mr. Julian says they played the wench
too much for dramatic cltect : that the

and that luv case baa absolutely broken

tial people. Tho most moderate of the

Dear Sir: Wc .have, just heard
through Major McGinn!, of yonrstatr,
your order commun tated to Mr. i Wal
lace, speaker ol the house ot repicjenta
tives, that at 12 o'clock to-morrow the
members elect from Kdgetield would not
be allowed upon the lloor of tho house.
To say that we are surprised at such an
order after the explanations and pledges
made by von to each one of us, is to u
very mild language. When the outrage
of Tuesday last was committed by the
placing of armed sentinels at the door ot
the house of representatives, who de
cided upon the admission of mcmlicrs to
their scats, aud when the provisions ot
the constitution and decisiou ot the su
preme court were brought to your atten
tton, you distinctly and warmly asserted
agaiu and again that your orders were
misunderstood ; that you did not intend
to have sentinels at the door ot th. hall
and that yon had not, and did not, intend
to assume lo decide upon the legality ot
any man's seat or upon his right to enter
the hall. Vou were then reminded by
us that your guard received instructions
from one Dennis, n citizen and partisan
of Gov. I'haiulieiiain, to admit parties
upMi his own pa or that of one .lones,
and had. through an armed force, ex
cluded all Democrats from tho hall until
the Republican organization was com
pleted. Vou assured us again that such
were not your order. Vou were told by
u that, notwithstanding the perpetra
tion of this inexpressible thame upon
our tree institutions and the rights ot the
people, the evil could still be remedied
without any violence or bloodshed, by
the fcimple withdrawal , of your guard
from Uu.'uUxr ot the hall, aiuithat a
majority Ol fOt tlacUWall questions iu
aecordaucu with the laws and usages of
legislative bodies. Vou atated that no
troops should be at the door, and that
under uo. circumstances -wuitl jofi In
terfere rxeept there should occur a sci I
ou disturbance of the peace. Vou at
firmei your determlnatioji to exercise no

Alachua county was called and passed,
and Raker connty taken up. The, Dem
ocratic managers called attention to the
fact that the second return from Raker,
besides the points of Illegality brought
ngainst it yesterday, was signed by a Jus
tice of the peace appointed since the elec

county clerk's olllee, and that the county
