Tlit presidios justice laid the question
had been uked yesterday, What if the
caae? To which he replied: It consists
of three certificates with the accom
panyiag papers and objection to same'
lie wauldjio' state that two objectors
on each aide would be allowed to speak
on the opening of the case. Those rep
resenting objection number one, which
was presented br Mr. Field, would
speak first and under the fourth rule
would be allowed two hours to state the
case and argue in aupport ot objection.
Mr. Field asked whether, after the ob
jnctors had spoken, and the opening ar
gument was made, and any reply would
Justice Clifford stated "that the rules
made no provision for a reply.
MR. FIELD' ARGUMENT.
Mr. Field then opened the argument as
ou objector in the case of Florida, and
argued In favor oil going behind the face
l the returns on the ground that if this
could not be done the American people
would be in the position of standing
powerless in the face of the gigantic
Mr. Field reviewed the action ot tho
Florida returning board, and of Goycr
nor Stearns, and read from the evdence
taken before the house committee to
show that the vote of precincts had
been thrown out without a particle ot
evidence, ami upon the mere supposition
or belief that intimidation had been prac
ticed. The votes of JohnsviHc and Dar
by ville were cited as instances of this
action. He argued that the paramount
question before tltc commission was
whether in the face of such testimony as
this it can be claimed that the lace of the
returns is to be considered as conclusive
and binding. The usual form ot stating
the question, "Can you go behind the cer.
tiucates V" is an erroneous lorin. The
question should be reversed so as to read
"Can get the certificate go behind the
truth and conceal UV" There is no pre
tense that the vote of the slate was not
Siren lor TUdon and Ileudrleks, the sIe
pretext for denying the fact being the
certificate ot Govcruor Stearns. They
say that jhe truth cannot be proved a?
against the certificates. - This includes
the proposition that the two homes ot
congress have no right, cither separately
or together, to consider or Inquire into
any act which Governor Stearns may
certify to congress. Suppose a governor
t-liould become no debased as to corruptly
and falsely certify to congress that one
et of electors had received a majority of
votes of the state, is there no remedy ?
The constitution nowhere declares that
the certificate ot the governor shall
be conclusive against all proof in re
gard to the election of president. The
constitution distinctly declares that it
is the person having the highest number
oi votes who shall be declared elected,
and it cannot be rightfully said that the
wtlScate of the governor of a state can
overrule this provision of the constitu
tion. Air. Field cited the case of Barstow
of Wisconsin, (fourth Wisconsin reports)
to show the propriety of proceeding by
quo warranto. In that case the usurping
governor was ousted by the court and
the rightful governor Installed in his
tead, a case parallel to the governorship
of Florida. Air. Field regretted that
there was no similar provision of law
bearing on the question of the presidency
and paid a high tribute to the foresight
anj statesmanship of one member of the
ojimlsslon (Senator Morton) for havlnir
discovered a latent difficulty in the ques
tion of a disputed nresidencv. ami
labored early for Its settlement. Fraud
vitiates all transactions. 1 will not argue
'hat the judgment of a court
t competent Jurisdiction can
be Impeached collaterals for fraud.
if it could be, It would be agalust public
policy ; it would be scandal to inquire
iato the bribery or corruption ot a judge
while a judge is bitting upon the bench,
and therefore from motives of a public
lolicy it may be true that until a judge
tutu be impeached or removed you cannot
inquire into the corruption of his acts. I
venture to aay, however, that there Is no
document anywhere that you cannot iui
paeh for fraud. 1 put it to the court
that, independent ot the question,
whether if the Judge were mistaken, and
J be shown that acting in the exercise of
Atis judgment, and from a desire to do
jtuUee, ue uiul erroneously certified a

you could inquire Into. I submit that if
you show that he corruptly acted, and
that he was bribed or li utrty by ,,u

tion of law that you cannot inquire
whether that man has acted Irudulently.
If It be true that certificates cannot be
goni behind, then it la equally true that
we cannot Inquire whether there was an
election or not. Suppose I prove or offer
to prove that on the 7th of November
last there was no election whatever In
the state ol Florida, and that no man
voted or cast a ballot, and yet a certifi
cate should come here signed M. II.
Stearns, oonld you say that that show
that those four men were elected at that
election. To that complexion must It
come at last. There I no middle ground.
It you can Inquire into the truth of that
certificate, you can inquire into every
fact relative to it The greatness of the
question, the respect and dignity ot the
presidential office, and the enormous in.
tercsts depending upon it, arena nothing
compared with the moral elements In
volved. The greater question is whether
or not the American people stand power
less before a gigantic fraud. Here is this
certificate ; (holding it aloft in his hand)
one feels almost reluctant to touch it.
Hold it up to the light. It is black with
crime. Pass it around. Let every man
see it, and then tell me whether or not
that certificate gives a title to an
office contrary to truth, as we can
prove it. It fraud succeeds now
let us cover our faces with shame.

RANDOLPH TICKER'S ARGCMEXT.
Mr. Tucker followed Mr. Field. He
summarized the objections made by Mr
Field yesterday and said : The whole
question presented to this tribunal Is
question presented to the two houses of
congress, and which they have substitii'
ted this tribunal in their stead to decide
it is simply .this : Is there any power
in the constitution under which we live
by which a fraud can be prevented ? He
alluded to the quo warranto in the case
of the state of Florida ex ret. Wilkin
son, Coll and others, and to the de
cision of the supreme . court . in
' mat state. Jlc argued it to je sustained

he recorded as uicrc.lv one. aten in the I
authority by. which tho promulgations of I
elections were made. The. tiuul determi
nant authority, if he Were allowed to
make a word for the occasion, provided
by the state ot Florida, was the supreme
court. Therefore, unless the primary
determinant authority, viz., the board, is
conclusive not only In Us action but also
as to the extent ot its power, then wc
must regard the proceedings 4u Florida
upon the action of these electors as
part of that determinant power which
the state has provided against fraud and
illegality in the exercise ot elective tunc
' KASSOS'-S SI'K.KCII.
At the conclusion of Mr. Tucker's ar.
guuictit the cominHHoii took a recess till
I poii reassembling Mr. Kasdou ad
dressed the commission. He said : What
is the case before us ? First a certificate
couios to congress, as required by the
constitution and laws of the United
states in conformity with the statutes ol
the state of Florida, certifying the clec
toral.vote ol one ot those states which
my honorable friend who last spoke
(Tucker) was pleased to call the sover
eign states of this Union. That certifi
cate Is first opened and read. There is a
second certificate opened in the joint
meeting of the two houses of congress,
in which the persons signing the same
precede their certification by a certificate
signed by an officer not recognized by
the laws or ihe United States, nor by the
statutes of Florida as a certifying officer,
being the attorney-general of the state ot
2. He certifies that there Is no provision
of the law of Florida whereby the result
of said returns can be certified to except
by the executive of said state, admitting
by that certificate, if Jt has any force at
all that bis action is without law and
without any sanction by the statutes ot
3. The electors certify to their own ac.
tion, to their own qualifications, and they
themselves notified the governor of their
election. That is certificate number
two, a certificate ot uncertlfying persons
In view ot the law, tate and national.
That certificate was nrtsented mul
There is a third certificate still nuire
extraerdinary, still more wanting In the
element of verification, also demanding
consideration. It is entirely ex pott facto.
it U certified to by an officer not in exist-
nee until the fuuctlons ot the ofltae had
been exhausted ; a certificate which re
cites the proceedings in tribunals subor

the state ; a certificate which a canvas,
ing board might under the same circum
stances report to the state officers, but
which lias never been Bent to the con
gress of the United States or to the presi
dent of the senate, during the hundred
years in which we had been a renuV.ir
j The proceedings In court recited in It are

constitution and laws ol the Uuited
titatcs Is the time fixed for the perform

certificates are wanting In the element

should give them place before

brought to you certificate number four,
reciting new proceeding and a new ac
tlon before the court, and no end would
be found to the papers that might bo
presented in party or personal
interest as establishing a retroactive
right to exercising a function in
the state ot Florida, The objection
to the first certificate are substantially
one, namely, there was a fraudulent re
turn ; that it was traudulently Issued, not
by reason of anything which appears l.i
the action ot certification or presenting
of the certificate, but because of the action
of other people.
Mr. Kassbn here referred to the frauds
iu Jackson, where he said the Uepubli
can vote was rejected, and spoke of tlx
case where railroad train passengers got
off and voted the Pemocrotic ticket, and
said : I don't believe that this commission
by the constitution or law was ever In
tended or has the power to go to the
extent that would be required to probe
these mutual allegations on both ide to
Mr. Kassou argued at great length
against the power of the commission to
go behind the returns, and said: Are
you to revise the proceedings of all the
state elections and state tribunals ap
pointed by the state law or are you to
count what is properly certified if pre
sented to you ? If il lie otherwise let tho
constitution be amended, and let it be
declared by this tribunal to be amended,
so that it shall be read: "Each state
shall appoiut In such manner as the legis
lature thereof may direct, a number ot
electorals, subject to a revloion by the
congress of the United States, which shall
have power to determine whether such
electors have performed their functions
to the satisfaction of said congress."
We are brought inevitably to an
amendment to the constitution
which sought to preserve abso
lutely the right of the states, which
required every ballot in the presi
dential election to be cast on the same
day, that they might be treed from cen.
tralized Influence. F.very member of the
commission knows the history of the
adoption ot this clause, and j'ct w. r
brought. I av. nernetuafy to the ques
tion, shaft wrnow go on and complete
the absorption of the absolute indepen
dent right of the states to appoiut the
electors in their own way, and say that
it is subject to the two houses of congress
whether they have done or shall do what
Is necessary? Gentlemen ask, Are we
then to take the certificate of tltc governor
against the truth? Is there reason on
the other hand why it should not be
asked. Are wo to take the certificate of
fiftecu gentlemen agaiust the truth V M r.
Kassou continued : Mr. Field proposed
iu his argument to hov the jugglery
by which the Hayes electors
got their certificates. May I tk
this tribunal, if there is a prima facie pre
sumption for or aguiu&t fraud, whether it
exists agaiust those officers olected before
the fraud could have been contemplated,
againtit a board that acted at the time re
quired by the state law, agulust a board
that acted at the time by congressional
law, against a board that acted in igno
rance of the result ot other slates, or does
that presumption ot fraud exist agiiinst
meu who knew the importance ot
change ot result in Florida ; against men
who acted with a knowledge ot the ne
cessity of tho action they took to accom
plish their result ; against men w ho were
organized as a new tribunal and enacted
a new law to accomplish that result, if
there be fraud, if there be conspiracy, as
alleged, where docs the presumption of
law under those circumstances place it.
.'nevltably It places It where the motive
of act, the knowledge requisite to give
the motion, cfiect and pupose to be ac
complished, were before all ej-es
of tho persons participated in it. Fraud
can't be se presumed against parties that
act in conformity with law and the dis
charge ol duty at the time required by
law, and in the manner required by law,
as it can be presumed against those who
do it outside of the provisions of law,
and with a full knowledge ol the effect
which would be produced by It. It you
have a right to say that another set of
votes must be counted in Florida you
have a right to 3ay another set ol votes
must be 'counted in New York. If you
take jurisdiction to determine there were
ninety votes, which constitutes one of
the alleged majorities in Florida, and to
upset tho electoral college that might ex
ist there, you might go to my state and
assert that tho 60,000 majority there
should be upset.
Mr. McCrary followed, reviewing the.
quo warranto case already relerred to,
aad reciting many authorities in connec
Tut presiding Justice enquired whether
counsel proposed to offer evidence before
proceeding to argument.
It wa replied on behalf of Mr. U Cou
nor that he expected to otter an auswer.
Justice Miller suggested that counsel
might make a brief speech of what they
proposod to ofler.
The presiding justice asked Mr. F.vart
ir he Intended on his side to offer any ev
idence. He said that he had no evidence
to otter uuless there should bo a deter
mination to admit evidence agaiust hi
side, which he should then need to

Mr. Lvarts Yes, sir; especially re
lating to tins particular matter of Hum

shall perhaps desire to give evidence that

ferred to, aud we suppose if there Is to be

of the facts. If counsel would agree as
far a they could decide to facts ot which
there could be no possible doubt, leaving

tribunal, it would very much tend to save
