committee continued taking testimony
George A. Branstorph, colored, voted the
Democratio ticket; afterwards
knocked down and beaten, then arrested
and lent to the parish prison tor ten
davi. They beat him because he voted
the Democratic ticket ; named the parties
who attacked him. Made a complaint to
the police, but tucy refused to protect
him ; was threatened before the election
Women went around telling' colored men
they would b returned to slavery if the
Wm not troubled during the election.
Reiterated that he ad been at larked ;

t the police. They arrested him for
disturbing the peace ; he was tried by a
Justice's court and condemned to pay $3
fine or ten days In prison. Was sent to
prison. Was lormerly a I.epubllran ;
changed Lis politics because he had noth
ing to do and wanted work.
Ot the returning board icstilkd : . lie
was born in New Orleans ; is recorder of
births, deaths and marriages ; 1ms been
a member rt the returning board
fcince 1S72. All the mem
bers of tho board belonged
to the Republican party. There was a
recommendation to fill tho vacancy but
the board could not agree. Mr. Kennedy
was proposed by witness. Refused to
answer whether or not he favored the j
electing of Kennedy as member of the
board. Some of the supervisors made
returns direct to the board, others to the
secretary , ot state. The returns were
opened in the presence of the representa
tives of both parties. The final decisions
were made in private session. The boafd
made up the returns from the consolida
ted statements ot the supervisors. Never
allowed any additions to be made by tike
supervisors alter tho statements were re
ceived by the board. In few cases they
f-ent tor boxes, but don't remember what
parishes. Did not canvass Grant parish re
ceived some Irregular return. Threw out
East Feliciana because ot the general iu
tlraidatlon before and during election.
Don't remember having acted ou any
charge made of Intimidation previous to
the last registration. When asked jf he
intended to bring for the inspection of
the committee the original returns of the
supervisors, he all he had not brought
the papers; could not bring them
without the consent of the board ; would
consult the other members of the board
and bring them it they consented. Don't
know whether Tilden or Hayes electors
had a majority of votes cast according to
the supervisors' siutements. Never heard
any members say who had tho majority.
Know that they threw out two parishes
aud several polls in other parishes.
Thinks the votes, thrown out aggregated
several thousand ; couldn't say how
many ; think probably four or live thou
sand. Don't recollect the number of the
parishes la which the votes were thrown
out, thinks fourteen or fifteen.
At the evening session Louis M. Ken
iier, colored, testified : Live in New Or
leans ; keep a saloon ; was born la Lou
isiana ; was a member of Uti board ol
returning officers ; was appointed in 1873;
there U a vacancy on the board v hkb
has never been tilled; tlrere are four
member! on the present board all of
wiiom are Republicans ; dou't know the
number of polls thrown out by the re
turning board ; don't believe any were
thruwu out in the parish of Orleans;
made returns from the consolidated state
ments of tbe supervisors of registration ;
belieie that the supervisors tailed in
some instances to make returns ot all the
polls ; did not tell any one the result ot
the compilations of the vote by the board,
and did not have later vie ws with Kellogg,
Pitkin, Packard, Blancunrd and others
when the work ot the board was going on;
didn't know who received a majority
until it waa about to bo promulgated ;
have a memorandum ot the polls thrown
out and will furnish It to the committee ;
did not bring papers' as the subpoena
called tor ; oould not do without the cou
sent of tbe board ; will see whether the
board will consent to the production of
the original papers.

(.Speeiul telegram to the Chicago Tiun-a.j
the iidk Trnxixu.
Washington, Pec. 19. Public opinion
is most visibly Tilden ward. That strong
drltt toward h'm which set In last week
has increased until there seems to bo no
adverse sentiment so far as Lis title to
the presidency Is concerned. The main
causes whkh Lave brought about this
rapid and surprising state ot things are to
be lonnd In the concurrent testimony of
Republican frauds brought out front day
to day before the committer on the de
bated southern states. Another factor is
tho whimsical mission of Jlorton . west
and its conceded utter failure, rtrhnp
more decisive than even these is the ex
plicit letter of the ex-attorney general of
the state ot New York, Harlow, sent to
Florida as a witness by Grant, whoe
tii.dln's i tfiiTiM.irr. ma.iohiiv
la Florida has lett the decent element of
the Republicans without the ictuge of
uncertainty behind which they have here
tofore shielded themselves. A tendency
toward a revulsion of feelling was evident
so soon as Chandler's new generally de
nounced pronunciauteuto was issued.
Conservative Republicans hold that he
was unwise and flagrantly disrespectful
to a large tollowing of the parly in stat
ing that Hayes was elected beyond any
question on the part ol the intelligent
people, ninee there ln:s not been a mo
ment that his election was conceded by
the more decent of thn-cw ho UNhed for
hli success. I'nder
CRAOL'ALI.Y llKl AXISO I Allll
On the part of the less vehement partisans
the ruot resolute are losing that ener
getic push which was heretofore made
the head and front of tho Hayes cause.
The better class of Republicans in both
houses have been discussing with great
earnestness the propriety of calling a halt
and lorcing the more extreme of their
party to consult the wishes of tbe coun
try rather than the strong desires of the
party leaders. One ol the most respected
members ol the house, a life-long Repub
lican, made free concession to-day that
the Louisiana business was so infamously
OL'TRAGEOr AXD ISTOtEBAEl K
That when the proper time camo he
should rise iu Lis place on the floor and
denounce it, and he further asserted that
be would not be alone either in the
house or in the senate ; that the broad
career of fraud und Grantism to which
tbe party Lad committed itself must be
checked shortly or ther was no future
lor tbe Republican party, and that be tor
one was not prepared to let the party ot
Lincoln die out for the mere gratification
ol a few adventurers. As the factors
which led him to come to this conclu
sion, Le instanced the extraordinary ex
CIUI 1 AXD Bl'NOLIXU
lu South Carolina, where Muckt-y,
Chamberlain's speaker, and llayne, his
secretary of state, had certified unwlll
Ingly to Hampton's majority, ytt per
sisted in the wicked frauds of a pretended
state government, which they have con
fessed, by attesting the figure, is
a aham and theft. This expres
sion is but a reflex troin thut very
respectable class of Republicans who
have not hitherto been identliled with
tho machine clement of the party and
who rarely dictate to Its councils or urge
Its policies. Men who have up to this
time hesitated to take positive grounds as
to tho relative aspects of Hayes or Til
den's ascertained vote, are couilnj; more
iREttv to the rnoxr.
And the burdeu of opinion has reached a
strong tide so strong that tho sentiment
of the town is all In one direction. Tbe
signals tf the sentiment are compromise
and concession." Indeed, tho eflort on
the part of the Republican leaders U now
to discover a convenient way of escaping
from the entangling pnMtlmi into
which thn unscrupulous u of
the more conscienceless work
era Lave placed them. 'liny
would to-morrow, if it could bo dono
with decency and with dignity, propose
to tbe Democrats this method ot ecuic :
