Waminotos, t. C, Jannary 23.
During Xbe. morning hour Sir. Merrl
moD nok In opposMon to wrnJiiiK com
mittee ol the senate away trotn
tbe city to Ukt testimony. Recently one
state waf without rrpresentation and
twelve states with only one-hall tepre-
scnUtion, the tenatora being away on
inYeatiration committee. He believed
all testimony could be taken by a com
tniMion appointed tor the purpose, ami
Introduced a bill providing tor taking
testimony and collecting Information to
be used by congress. He also submitted a
resolution declaring that It u not witiuu
the lawful authority of the senate to
charge committees of the senate with
duties to be er(ormed away lroiu the
capital while the senate is In session,
both of which were referred.
The chair laid before the senate a tel
egram from the Chicago board of trade
approving the bill reported Thursday in
regard to counting the electoral vole.
Laid on the table.
Consideration was resumed of the bill
In regard to counting the electoral vote
and Mr. Morton took the floor. He said
the bill was the product ot missplan.
The shadow ot intimidation had entered
the senate chamber. He believed Ruth
erford B. Hayes had been elected presi
dent of the United State under the forms
of law and according to law and he
should be counted In as .eighteen other
presidents had been and inaugurated.
'Inert would be no revolution. There
have been many loose opinions expressed
because of first Impressions, without ex
amination on this qnestiou. I have done
so myself. I have had the habit of say
ing what I think at the time, but en
deavor to atone for It by readily correct
ing it when I find I was mistaken. I am
no admirer of political reticence, ol polit
leal owls who keep silent and look . wise
until they think they are out of the
woods and then give a prolonged hoot.
I had supposed that all agreed in the ab
sence of legislation that the president of
the senate must count the vote.
The president ot the senate did
count the vote lor seventy-two yean.
Tellers were mere facilities for
making calculations ; keeping account
they counted what trie president of the
senate hands them down to count, ana
handing them down the certificates to
count was the declaration of the vote it
contained. From USD to 1SG1 the reso
lutions appointing a teller provided they
were to make a list ot votes as they were
declared. The counting of votes was a
ceremony to which the two houses were
witnesses. The constitution provides
that the president of the senate shall. In
the presence of the two houses, open all
certificates and the vote shall then be
counted, and if no one candidate has a
majority ot all electorala appointed ti e
house shall immediately proceed to elect
The process contemplated was a very
simple one, simply to opeu certificates
and count the votes, but contemplated
no time or place to try questions of the
eligibility either of the candidates or the
electors. Whether the electors were eli
gible was a matter left with the states
under the injunction of the constitution.
The handing down of the certificate by
the president of the senate was a decla
ration of the vote contained In it.
Very few Bepubllcas respect this bill.
It will be taken by Republicans, It taken
at all, as a dose of castor oil. Senator
Edmunds burned his ship behind the
bill when he denied the
power of the president of the
senate to count the vote In the abseace
of legislation. U thus seemed to make
it necessary to accept this bill. It has
been announced by a member ot con
gress that about 100,000 men were to be
there on the 14th of February, 10,000 to
come from Kentucky alone. I hope our
Kentucky senators will make arragemenU
to entertain them handsomely. We
hear notes of preparation everywhere.
Senators are afraid ot violence.or ot some
de perate revolutionary act. We are
told tnat we dare not count this vote as
it was dona for the first seventy-two
years of our experience as a nation.
The dangers to which we
are subject do not spring from
violence, but from weakness on our own
part Geologists tell ns there was a pe
riod in the earth's crust when there were
tkulleai vertebral. Now we hare got
to the period when there are vertebra
less ikuila. The power to count the vote
resides In the president ot the senate or
lit the two houses. If it rekides In the
two houses U cannot be delegated to the
commission or to a eourt. The mere
uiattter ot counting the rotes is clerical
and may be performed by a teller. If
any question arises that requires judg
ment or discretion It cannot be delegated
t ) a commission. The decision of the con.
rVrence commit le u binding, only upon
being ratified by both houses, but the de-
cUious ot this commission are binding
unless reversed by the action of both
houses. It Is in every resitect, a court in
vested with high judicial powtr to do
rtde questions of law a well a
fact, with a right of a,.eal,
not to another court, but to
tlie two houses of congress. The
power to count the electoral vote
is either s political or a judicial power.
It it is ft political power It must be de
cided by the political department ol the
government and cannot be delegated to
a court. If it is ft judicial power it must
be exercised by ft court and not by the
political department of the government
and an appeal must be taken to another
tMirt, and not to the two bouses of con-
grees, lor judges of the supreme court are
selected by drcsdts and circuits are se
lected because oi the political antecedents
ot judges. The senator from Vermont
does not do hlmselt Justice when be rep
resent that these Judges have bee se
lected because of their geographical dis
trlbutlon, and the bill In selecting sJfem
by circuits Instead of by name, sets ftp ft
harmless little sham that deceives no
body. There Is no power to go behind
the returns of the election of electors cer
tified by proper returning or can
vassing officers of a state. State
courts cannot do It. nor oan r-on-
m nor United States courts. The
electors are to be appointed in such man
ncr as the legislatures of states prescribe,
and when the appointment has been cer
titled to the manner prescribed by the
legislatures ot the states tliat Is final
and binding on all parties, and tlds with
out regard to the question whether the
votes are to be counted by the president
of the senate or by tlie two houses ot con
gress, or this commission. To go be
hind the decision of the returning officers
of the states would be utterly subversive
of state rights, and would draw to con
gress the power that was Intended to be
left to the states ; it would transfer to con
gress the right to decide who have been
elected by states Instead of leaving that
to the states themselves. As well might
congress assume to determine who bad
been elected governor aud other state
officers. Could any lawyer of any
party have been found lx
months ago who would have
said that either house could go behind
the returns from states and inquire who
got the most votes, and perhaps you can
hardly find a Democratic lawyer who
will deny this proposition, such are the
mutations of public opinion. In the bill
ot last year there was no authority to go
behind the returns or to consider other
papers than certificates irom the states.
In the bill of 1800 It was expressly pro
vided that they should not go behind the
returns to count the votes for electors.
If we concede, for the sake of argument,
that the two houses have a right to count
the votes, there is still a question lying
behind that and independent of It, and
that is as to what papers the president of
the senate is required to open in the
presence of the two houses and hand to
the tellers. The electors In the several
states are to seal up their votes and lists
made up by the governor and enclose
them to the president of the senate.
Indorsing the names of the elora upon
the outside of the envelope. He Is thus
notified who the electors or pretended
electors are,-who have voted, whose votes
are contained In the envelope. It Is a
certificate troui the electors, aud none
other that he Is required to open in the
presence of the two houses. He is not
in tact required to receive the certificates
ot any body but the true electors of a
state. He is therefore required in the
discharge of the duty of his office to de
termine and present a true certificate
from the electors of a state. He is bound
as an officer ot the government of the
United States to take notice of those who
have been declared elected by the proper
authorities of the state, and when a cer
tificate comes into his hands, it is his
business at once to investigate and de
termine for hlmselt whether It. comes
from the elector or a state. He must de
cide that question upon his peril, and
present the certificate to the two houses
ot congress. Kutberford D. Hayes
ought to be inaugurated and
must be inaugurated unless a bill
should be passed to count hiiu out
in defiance of well known principles of
law. He was not well enough to-day to
argue this question as fully as he would
like to. The Democratic senators would
not support this bill if it did not give
them ft chance to count Mr. Tilden by
going behind the returns.
At 2:10 Mr. Morton said lie was not
able to proceed further to-day, aud there
fore suspended his remarks.
Mr. Prelinghuysen, member of the
special committee, then took the floor and
spoke in favor of the bill.
Mr. Throckmorton offered a resolution
directing the committee on military af
lalrs to Inquire into the cause of the re
moval of troops from the frontier,
whether sufficient force remains there to
protect it, and the number of troops sta
tioned at Washington. The resolution
was defealed: Yeas H2, nays 87. not
two-thirds in the affirmative.

Which, with the fact that the audience
was not en rapport with such a state
ment at such a time, vexed him. He
stopped for a moment and then pro
ceeded more carefully. Soon again he
lost control of himself and charged the
Democrats of the senate committee with
catehlng at the proposed plan, not with
any pat riotic motives, but because it gave
their defeated : csndldato a dinnce.
Again he stopped short, and alter pro

""' EDMCKDS PROPOSKS
Bringing the measure to a vote, to
morrow, and a careful canvass of the
senate shows that he will have about
five majority. The Democrats of the
house held a short caucus after adjourn
ment to-day. The majority was cleaily
In favor ot the bill, and also In allowing
Republicans to do most of the discus
sion and split among themselves. The
caucus closed without taking any action
on any ot the resolutions put forward.
One ot these was that attorneys be em
ployed to appear before the tribunal. It
is now the intention to hold no more
caucuses for fear of a wrangle, but to let
the bill come up and be passed by the
house with as little discussion as possi
ble on the Democratic side. Mr. Wells
will to-morrow present to the bouse the
resolutions of the St. Louis Chamber of
Commerce, on counting the electoral
