The messenger's . copy was read by
Senator Allison. It was certified to by
the same electors as the other Demo

of the decision of the circuit court at

THK FLORIDA CKRTiriCATES.
Jtictlce " Bradley-! Understand thers
are three certificates from the State or
Florida that have been sent to us. I
should think the proper eourw would be
to have them) three certificates read, and
then ae each Is read let the parties be
called upon to state whether they are oh
jected to and who are the objectors. Un
til we read those certificates or hear them
read we do hot know what we have be
fore us.. Alter that time it will be time
to take such other order in regard to
proceeding as may be necessary. "
Tho Presiding JusticeI will adopt
that suggestion without a vote, f,
Justice Miller I had the pleasure, sir,
if it was a pleasure, of listening to the
reading of these documents in the house
of representatives. If the papers about
the State of Florida are read It will take
an hour to read them. The objectors'
names are signed to the papers making
the objection. I presume they will bo
printed. Theyl certainly ought to be
printed, and then everybody can read
them without consuming an hours' time
in doing that which every man will want
to do for himself more carefully. I think
If Brother Bradley had known, as I
know, the length of these papers, he
would perhaps withdraw his motion. 1
The Presiding Justice Does . Justice
Bradley withdraw his motion? ,
Justice Bradley I did not made a mo
tion ; I merely made a suggestion.
PRIXTIJtO THE DOCUMENTS.
Representative Tavne I move that
the certificates with papers be printed at
as early an hour as possible.
The Presiding Justice The motion
before the commission is that the three
certificates In the rase of Florida be
printed with the objection thereto. If
that Is your pleasure you will say ayo
(putting the question). Il is agreed to,
Iiow soon can they be printed f ' . " ' t

certifieateand objections may be printed
In a very short time. Tbe secretary will
understand that the motion is intended

and papers that accompany the certifi

senuuves Thompson, Jenks and myself
Representative Abbott-Mr. President,
I desire to inquire whether the motion
made in relerence to printing covers the
printing of all papers that are sent here
with objections, because it seems to me
that we are to consider all tho papers
sent with objections, and It is just as ma
terial for us to have those papers printed
so that we can consider them as it Is to
have the objections themselves.
The Presiding Justice I do not under
sinu me voce in that war it nnsmr
.A. 1 .
It is that the certificates with obiee
Uous and papers which accom nan v cer-
imcaies snail be printed, not all naivrs
mat msy nsre been sent.
iwpresenwuve Abbott I sucrcst.
It - . . ...
then, that if we arc to consider the papers
accompanying the objections, ttey may

The objections themselves would hardly
be understood without the papers, and
we should have those papers printed or
put In such form as will enable us to act
I he Presiding Justice There Is
motion on that subject.
Representative Abbott I mnv. thi'n
that the papers accompanying the objee-
wuus u io printed.
Senator Ji-dmunds Mr. President, I
submit that It Is possible undsr the stat
ute under which we are acting that there
may be no papers lawfully and within
the statute accompanying an obiection.
That statute provides for psper that ac
companying the certificates, but as I re
member at this moment I speak, ot
course, subject to correction it does not
provide for papers accomDinvinr thu oh.
Jsctioas. 1 think It will ba a mmiur far
the consideration ot the commission in
the consUtutloa how far In printing tea
Umony tnat may ba offered whether by
-j-ciorsor anybody else we oaght to
Twlu ,lUMtt0B for considers.
Seor Theft!titn-Mr.pTesldent, It is
trno that the utatttte reqnlnm paperl ao
corapanying csrtiflcates to be lakl btfora
the commission, but It also authorizes
the commission to take Into view all
documents, depositions and other psper
that may be competent and pertinent to
this Inquiry ; and If we have received pa
pers from either of the bouses which in
the estimation ot the houses It is proir
to send to ns, it seems to me we must
look at them and see whether they are
competent and 'pertinent. 1 think,
therefore, that the motion to print ought
to be adopted,' That will not delay us in
Having by to-morrow morning as early
as we see fit to meet, printed copies of
the certificates and objections. We can
Klve directions that they shall bo sent to
ns immediately, and the printing ot these
other papers can goon. .
'' ltcprescntative Abbott Mr. President,
I think in looking at the law the objec
tions only are to be sent here, and I fancy
that these papers, If they are sent here at
all, must come as a proof of the objec
tions, so that a proper motion to prevent
objections would carry with it the neces
sity of printing those papers.
Senator Edmunds Mr. President, In
order that we may consider that topic,
I move the motion of Judgo Abbott be
for the time being laid on the' table, so
that we may consider It a little after
wards. ThelPreslding Justice The motion is
to lay the motion ol J udge Abbott upon
Representative Abbott 1 withdraw
the motion for the time being, to be re
sumed at a subsequent time.
fhe Presiding Justice Tbe motion Is
withdrawn. (A pause). I am requested
now to call for the names of counsel who
appear In ths case on each side.
rnK VARIOUS COfXSEt.
Representative Field We have sev
eral counsel on our side. We have Mr.
O'Connor, of New York ; Judge Black,
ot Philadelphia ; Judge Trumbull, of Illi
nois ; Mr. Merrick, of Washington, and
Mr. Green, of New Jersey.
The Presiding Justice Counsel not ex
cecding two in number on each side arc
allowed to participate In argument.
KcpresenUtlre Field We have not
elected those two. I only mentioned the
names to you in answer to the queatlon,
bow many there are who are concerned
in the case. We shall arrange that matter
In course of the evening.
r resitting justice mat win answer.
Who are the counsel on the other side t
Mr. Evarts As representing the ob
jectors to the certificates other than those
that have been represented in the enumer
ation by Mr. Field, I will state. Mr.
Stoughton, Mr. Stanley Matthews, Mr.
Shellabarger and myself, are expected to
represent the objectors in some of the
cases which will appear, and I would ask
instruction of the court. Is it pertinent
to make Inquiry as to what Is included hi
me pnrase "un we merits or any case
presented to it," whether that means any
Issue joined on objections to any partlon
lar certificates, or whether.lt includes all
that ' . ""ticuiar
' Presidins; Justice--! think the counsel
will have to judge of that matter for
themselves, unless they have some oues-
iion io submit to the commission. It Is
hardly within the province of the pre
ssing justice to determine that.
Mr. Evarts We understand, then, that
me uesignatlon of two counsels will be
sufficiently early made when the case is
jsenaior juimunds That is merely for
rresiaing justice After the obiecters
have opened the case.
Mr. Evarts So we understsnd.

The principal question would be In

public sitting of the commission be now

SENATOR JONES' OBJECTION.
Representative Garfield I think there
was an objection filed regarding which
no action has been taken ; an objeetiou
I believe from Senator Jones. I have
heard the president of the commission
make no allusion to it. I Inonlre whether
there is any special hearing to be had on
that objection. I think it was different
from the other objections which have
been filed. 1 refer to it because it makes
a distinct cause.
The Presiding Justice My impression
is, though I do not make the decision in
behalf of the commlsson, that the several
objections to returns from a state const!
tute one case, and two objectors will be
neara upon one side and two on tbe
other, and after they shall have been
beard two counsel will be heard upon
one side, and two upon the other. Unless
otherwise advised by the commission that
win be tbe ruling. .

me to say that perhaps there may be
some misunderstanding in regard to that
rule unless 1 state to you precisely the

attorney for Wells, the Louisiana return
ing loard was allowed to be present dur
ing the examination of the witness. Mad
dox stated that he had refused to answer
on yesterday because he thought Wells
himsell would make a statement, but as
he had not he was now willing to tell all
he knew, lie testified that two or three
letters were written by Wells to himself
and one to Senator West ; that on the 10th
of November he nnd Wells had a conver
sation on the political situation, when
Wells proposed that he (Maddox) should
go to Washington and explain It. The
next morning, before going, Wells gave
him a letter to Senator West, which was
sealed up and never delivered, and an
other one containing his credentials.

And he wanted to be paid for the risk
that he would like to serve his party and
make the return from Hayes, but he
wouldn't do it unlets he was paid tor it.
Wells further told him In this conversa
tion that he would have no hesitation in
sacrificing his own party If the Demo
crats were willing to raise the required
amount. He wanted 1200,000 each for
himself and Anderson and lomethiag for
the niggers. He went to see the presL
dent and Don Cameron and the committee
excused him from giving the conversation
with the president, bnt Insisted upon hi
giving that with the secretary of war.
Ue said that Dou Cameron declined to
have anything to do with the proposition.
Afterwards, during the canvass, Wells
told him that the majority for Hayes
would bo from 1,200 to 1,800, and that he
would throw outvotes wherever he could
in order to bring about this result.
