Uui all the hojies of the Kadi-
cals, based ujion the Wisconsin precedent, i
have been knocked down. Senator Mor-
ton and Kdmunds have misrepresented
the Wisconsin matte -, most grossly. Sen
ator Ilaiuloiph, of New Jerw-y, has con

their mouth effectually. In a late nch j 0WI1 chamber, should vote upon the ob

the Senate Mason's own word Iron the
Mr. .Mason said : "The presiding ofll-

When the vote o! Wisconsin was ob
jected to, one ot the tellers aid : "I
suppose, Mr. President, the proper way
would be ior the tellers to report the
tacts to the convention of the two houses
and let them decide." To this sugges
tion tiie vice-president responded as fol
lows : " The presiding ojjicer so consideri.''
Senator Randolph then proved that
Senator Douglas, Seward, Crittenden,
and others, were vehement in assert
ing that the president of the sen
ate had no right to decide upon
the validity or invalidity ot au electoral
vote, anl that Vice President Mason
said: "'I lie presiding officer Is utterly
unaw are that he has assumed the exercise !
of any such power."
In the conclusion ot his speech, Senator i
Randolph gave the finishing blow to the
Republican claim about the Wisconsin
vote, by quoting the following from re-
mark made by Vice President Mason on
that occasion. He said :
"The presiding officer desires to say,
as he thought he had distinctly bUted
whilst presMlug oyer the two houses in
the chamber of the house of representa
tives, that the conception ot the senator
froui Georgia is entirely erroneous In the
judgment ot the presiding officer. The
presiding officer did not undertake to de
cide whether the vote of the State of
W iscou.sin was a good vote or a bad vote.
The presiding officer iion that matter
did no more than recite the tact which
was reported lo him by the tellers, pur
suant to the concurrent order of the
two houses. The presiding officer did
no more than announce that the vote ot
Wisconsin had lieen given to .lohn C.
Fremont. Whether it was a good vote
or bad vote he did not undertake to
Finally, Vice-President Mason declared
that he"had not undertaken to decide and
had not decided whether the vote of the
state ol Wisconsin had been given to
John rJ. Fremont or not, a power that
the chair utterly disclaimed and never as
serted." TliU ihui.ter from the hlntoiv ol the

votes of nearly all the Republican sena

Its adoption would be fatal to the presi

THE IHI.IIMJIA r THE HEFt UI.I
Our Republican friends are in a d
lemma. In any event, tho record they
have made on the subject of counting the
electoral vote w ill condemn them.
In the first place. The Republicans, in
their de-ire to throw out Democratic
state, adopted the twenty-second joint
rule In InCi. That rule provided, that
when an objection was made, in the joint
convention, to an electoral vote, the
houses should separate, and each, in its
out. I nder this rule v' r; ccveraj
states were thrown out upon the objection
of only one ot the houses, t'nder this rule,
and without re-adopting It, congresg
c'd ior o!ui; .i eai. not
.-adopted by tho congress mat rnoi
alter the one that adopted if, or by the
next one, but was held to be In force by
the Republican party, and was acted
under by both houses t congress.
lu the second place. As soon as the
people made the house of representatives
Democratic, the Republicans declared
that the twenty-second joiut rule was not
in force Jiat. being a joint rule, it fell
with the congress that had adopted
it and was dead ; that therefore, the ob
jection of the house to a vote was not
sufficient to throw it out ; that the presi
dent of the senate was the counter
of the vote, and that his duty
was simply ministerial, he
having the right to count the votes, but
not the right to go behind the certificate
of the governor ot a state.
in the next place. When the gover
nor ot Oregon gave C'ronin. a lduo
cratic elector, a certiilcate of e lection, and
Crouin voted for Tilden, then the Re
publicans claimed, that the president of
the senate might go behind the great seal
of state, and determine w hether Cro-
''In had a right to vote for Tilden. and
thut neil'l r of the houses had the right
t0 0,'.i"'(' ,n ,i deelioii of this ques-
In this way the Republicans have
been driven from every position they have
assumed, and have been compelled to
admit by their actions, shaking much
more truthfully than their words, that
right or wrong, they are going to count
Mr. Haves into the presidential office.
AX lltlMSI RAIHIAL,
The Louisiana returning board counted .
out the Democrats who were elected to
the legislature ol that sta'e liom the par- I
ish of De Soto and counted In the Repub
lican candidates who had been defeated.
One of the Kepublicms counted in w as
Mr, John J. Long. He refuses to accept
the office, and In it letter to Mr. J. Madi
son Wells, president ot the returning
board, says: "Knowing that I was
fairly defeated at the polls, no intimida
tion or Iraud having been practiced by
the opposite party at any precinct in the
parish, so far as I have been able to as
certain oiler a thorough Investigation,
my self respect will not permit m to ne-
tioual Republican parly can be promoted
by returning, as elected, a candidate so
clearly defeated as myself."
This declination has created consider
able excitement at New Orleans, and U
looked upon as ulnoet conclusive evi
dence that Mr. Well' board has out
raged the popular will of Louisiana la a
most shameful manner, Mr. Long Is a
strong Republican, but he is also an
honest man ; two facts which, in combi
nation, will be likely to drive Idm out of
t his party and subject him to the bitten.' t
kind of abuse.

Our Republican friends who desire to
learn the truth the Republicans who

testimony given by colored Democrat
before the congressional committee now

shameful outrage to which Democratic
colored men are compelled to submit.
