ceived at 8 o'clock at Democratic head
quarters a dispatch from Salem, Oregon
to the effect that the electoral college had
met and east two votes for Hayes and

the latter the required 1S5 votes. The ex

MAX Y NEW SCUE.ME3.
Washinutox, Dec. 5. There are many
schi m-'s now preparing lor a settlement
of the vexed presidential question. The
one that apM;ars to gain most favor
amo'ng the conservative members of both
parties is that which proposes to refer
the subject to the supreme court for de
cision. Mr. Lc Moync, of Chicago, has
himself drafted a resolution upon this
subject, which he has shown to several of
his colleagues and which he proposes to
introduce in the house at the earliest op
portunity. It is as follows :
Whereas, Serious difference of opinion
may arise between members of the two
houes as to their jurisdiction and pow
ers in joint session in counting the elec
toral vote, and the questions Involved be
ing questious of law,
Resolved, That the senate be reqinfcted
to appoint a committee to act with a com
mittee of five to beTappointed by the
speaker ot the house in presenting to the
supreme court such questions as either of
said committees may deem Important In
the premises and in asking the members
of the supreme court to give congress an
He gives In support of the above prop
osition the following reasons:
1. The votes of the three contested
southern states will be returned for
Hayes and Wheeler.
2. This is to be done unJer the forms
of law and the whole Republican press
will sustain it.
3. Shall we submit? It not, how can
we resist, and will not the struggle be
made when the houses meet?
4. If we do submit, we will find on the
part of some ol the people we represent a
feeling that we have been unequal to the
occasion. Many will feel doubtful as to
the propriety of submission, and this
doubt will be strong just in proportion
as they believe the means used fraudu
lent. 6. If our laws are so defective that con
gress has not power to pass upon and re
ject returns claimed to be fraudulent, the
people should know it. They should
know that the administration can perpet
uate Itself by fraud and there is no rem
edy. 6. People will not be satisfied with
the opinions of an obsequious and servile
attorney general with the approval ol
the senate, nor with the Democratic ma
jority of the house.
7. We must draw the sentiment ot the
people to the party by showing that we
will do everything which fair play de
mands. 8. It is probable either that the Repub
licans of the house will refuse to pass
this resolution or the senate will refuse
to accede. They believe now that they
have the power, and they intend to use
it, but the ofler will strengthen the party
:. It they accede to it and the court
decides that we have authority to reject
the fraudulent returns the Republicans
dare not refuse to follow such opinion.
10. If the president of the senate opens
the returns and assumes to announce the
result, we submit it will greatly demor
alize public sentiment.
11. If the court derides against us, it
will be much less injurious to the moral
wealth nt the public.
12. 1 u any ?a.-e the parly i strengthened.
This should be done now so that there be
no excuse for want of time.
The more conservative of the Demo
crats at present take rather
A GLOOMY VIEW
Of the amicable adjustment of this presi
dential question. The great majority of
Democrats in the house look more, they
say, to the success ol the party than they
do the welfare of the country. One of
the mo-t intelligent of this class says lie
has carefully talked w ith members upon
the floor, and has hail special opportu
nities for gathering general sentiments
among members of the majority, and
that lie for that reason thinks there will
be trouble, lie does not think that it is
possible that any trouble can en
sue, however, prior to the as
sembling ol congress in joint fes
siou to witness the counting of the
votes ol the electoral college. He says
then that it is probable that the house
will iiiMt upon selecting an offic er to
preside, over it in joint session. There Is
a precedent for this. In lstl, when In
joint session, the speaker of the house
presided over the house, and the presi
dent of the senate over the senate. Then
the house may Insist upou the appoint
ment of tellers in accordance with the
joint speakership of fho body so assem

Fearful Scene of Confusion,

Ghastly Work of Recovering the
Blackened Bodies from
New York, Dec. 0. The fire in the
Brooklyn theater last night was attended
by an appalling loss of lite, and It Is
thought not less than one hundred per
sons were killed in the rush to the exits,
or burned to death, being unable to es
cape. The tire broke out during the
nerformanca of the last scene ol the
"Two Orphans," in which Miss Claxton,
who plays the part of the heroine, was
on the boat-house floor. In five minutes
more the audience would have been dis
missed, and there would have been noth
lug more serious to record than the de
struction of the property.
The house was about tw o-thirds filled,
those below sitting well forward toward
the stage. For those In the family circle,
dress circle and eallenes there was no
way of escape except by Washington
The panic-strickgn people rushed pell
mell towards and down the stairway, and
the main exit became immediately
choked up. and a tuene of terror, conlu
slon and distress ensued, which beggars
description. Just above the landing
place of the stairway a woman in a crash
had her loot pushed between the bannls
ters and fell. The crowd behind, forced
forward by the terrified people still fur
ther behind, leil over her, and piled on
top of each other loor and live deep.
The police from the station house next
door were promptly at the scene, but
owing to the manner In which the peo
ple were piled upon the top of each other
and massed together, they could extri
cate comparatively few, and these were
all bruised, bleeding and maimed.
The firemen got to work on the ruins
shortly after daylight this moraing.
They succeeded in getting as far as the
fall of the dress-circle, where they found
a great number of bodies. Immediately
began the work of removal, and up till
11 o'clock sitxy-live bodies had been re
moved, and what appealed to be twenty
or thirty more were seea in the basement,
into whi:h they had been precipitated by
the fulling of the burning floor.
