THt COMPLICATION C0XTIXVK9
Wajhixqtox, Feb. 3. The. electoral
commission met at 10:35,
Judge Clifford said that under the
third rule counsel should present the tr
idenoe they proposed to ofier in a close,
condensed and classified form, of course,
based upon the condition that the evi
dence would be received. The proposi
tion whether evidence should be re
ceived has not been decided, but counsel
would act as if the evidence would be ad
mitted until the commission decided.
After tome discussion as to a mode of
procedure, Mr. O'Conor addressed the
commission, urging that evidence should
be admitted subject to the question of its
relevancy and Um eflect to be considered
with the whole case. He then submitted
his proposition of evidence.
1. That bothTilden and Hares electors
met on the Cth ol December and each
cast their votes and forwarded them to
the seat of government, with the excep
tion that the Hayes electors were certified
by Um governor, and the Tilden electors
were certlfle by the attorney-general.

Judge Black was about to argue in

him that unlesi the other side ctex:ed

Mr. Black argued thai taot ot the evi
deece vu already be&re the eommittee
through the reports of the cocgresiiooal
com ml Cees now part of the record in the
case. It would be the greatest injustice
to require evidence to be taken np peace
meal and subjected to objection in de
tail. Justice Miller submitted a motion that
counsel on either aide be allowed two
heura to discuss the question raised by
Evarti as to whether any other matter
shall be considered other than what was
laid before the two houses by the presi
dent. Mr. Thurman thought the scope
should be enlarged. Else, if the commis
sion anouid decide to admit evidence
mere would be no advance made. He
proposed the discussion should include
bat "evidence might be admitted
and also what evidence was now before
Mr. Miller modified his motion as sug
gested and It was adopted.
At the reqeest of Mr. Evarts an ad
ditional hour was given to either side.
In order to permit counsel to arrange
for their arguments, the commission
took a recess.
On reassembling it was arranged that
one counsel ot each side be heard to-day
and one on each side Monday. It was
further agreed that three counsel might
be heard, but not to extend the time.
It was announced Judge Black would
make some general remarks and Mer
rtck wonld make regular opening, Mr.
O Conor making a reply to the other
UK at the close of the debate Monday.
Mr. Merrick made the opening address
as to question of the power of the com
mission as to the regularity ot the evi
dence now belore the commission. He
thought there could be no question that
the testimony was now before the com
mission and whatever might be Uie de
cision as to Its admissibility. He p
poaed the proposition that the dutiea of
the commission were purely minUtertal
and that they could not look behind the
certificates. If this doctrine prevailed,
even Gov. Stearns, though he came in
1k1oUj n penitential sorrow and
aked to correct the mistake, could not
a wrong la that paper. In the

K. W. Stoughton on the Republican side,

and Charles O'Conor will close the pond
In question." - -
The following are the points In the ar
gument of the counsel lefore the eleo
toral commission :
APtmtM Or HON. STANLEY MATTHKWS.
Mr. Matthews said : I take this first
opportunity to correct a serious rai.ap
prchension on the part ot the learned
gentlemen who hate toted as counsel in
the opening of this question, in regard to
the position which they seem to ' assume
as being already taken on our . side. I
refer to the conclusive eflect which they
suppose we attribute to the certificate of
the governor of estate accompanying the
list ol those whom he certifies as having
been duly appointed electors for that
state. I am authorized to say by the
gentlemen who are objectors to the sec
ond and third certificates that that state-
ment is an Incorrect representation ot
their position. I may also take this im
mediate opportunity for relieving the ap
prehension of my very learned Iriend,
Judsre Clack, who spoke so well in re
gard to the possible eflect of
excluding the consideration ot
what he has been pleased to
call exhibits, on evidence from
the judgment of this tribunal. It is a
quaint saying of SeWon in "Little ssay
on Papal Councils," where he was treat
ing of th doctrine, that they were en
lightened by the presence of the Holy
Ghost, that he had generally found that
spirit dwelt in the old man. Laughter.
So that in the exercise of constitutional
function, whatever may be devolved by
congress on this commission in the count
ot the electoral votes, effectual provision
has been made against the defeat ot the
transaction by referring H to a tribunal
which cannot be equally divided.
What is the transaction f What is the
subject of the general investigation? It
is stated, In its final result, the election
of a president, and vice-president of Uie
United States. In what does tliat consist?
It is not a single act, it is a aeries ot acts
rue election or two nign officers is not a
popular election, cither according to the
muit of Lbe constitution. !
oi the generation which adopted it, or
the practice under it. There is a select
body of men la each state who consti
tute the constitutional body who are to
make that election, and they have a right
to make a selection as well a elevtic.
It is altogether, in my jeisxat. a n

The body of electors which has an appar
ent right and proper title, and which i
in the exercise and possession ot the
functions and franchise of an office, and
who actually exercise the powers of that
office, is tor purposes of this tribunal the
lawful body and their votes miut be
counted. It the commission went behind
the certificate they were limited to an
inquiry as to what are the facts. As to
the governor in his certificate be
should have certified those whom
Gov. Stearns, the lawful governor, certi
fied to be electors in tact aud according
to law to have been appointed. The fact
that a subsequent governor came in and
that a court rendered judgment upon bis
status, could not change the de facto
status of Gov. Stearns. The quo war
ranto proceedings could not be alleged as
against the fact recited ia Gov. Stearns'
ceitiflcate because the facts are not mat
ters ol legal con structlon. They exist ot
themselves. The fact is uudoubted and
unquestioned that Gov. Stearns at the
time indicated was de facto governor of
Florida. The relators In that quo war
ranto case appeared clearly by the rec
ord not to have been In possession at the
time, and their claim of a right to occupy
the olllces did not affect the actual status
of Gov. Stearns, nor the legal and consti
tutional force of his action .
APDKES3 or JIBE BLACK.
Mr. Black, in his address on the Demo
cratic aide, insisted that the evidence be.
ing once In or offered or filed in the case
was to be treated as a court of equity
treats evidence. The commission was
not required to give it any particular
amount of force or weight in its final
judgment, but the commission was to
look at it and to determine the case on all
the evidence before it There had been
much talk here about going behiud the
acUon of a stato. He believed firmly in
the sovereign power of the state to ap
point any person as elector provided it
was done iu the manner prescribed h
her legislature, and he feliaveti timt
mo i(Himmeni was maue in tuat man.
ner. No man had a right to go
behind it, and say It was not an appoint

an officer ot Uie state or ofiU
cer of the general government, who
i. 1 . . ...
undertook to set aside such an ap
pointment as that would be guilty ot
usurpation of authority, and his act
would be utterly void. Therefore, If the

I hey were not going behind the act 0!
Uie state ia this rase. They were only
gblna behind the fraudulent act of an
offioat of the state who?e act had no va
lldltjr whatever in It. When they were
told that if the president ol the seunte
laid before the two houses a talne paper,
a paper that wan absolutely counterfeit
and that that was the end of It. and
that no extraneous evidence could be
produced lor the purpose of show
ing that the paper was a forgery, the
doctrine went too lar. If that proposi
tion were carried out to Its logical con
clusions, then it would follow that the
two houses ol congress rnut simply re
ceive whatetet anybody chose to fabri
cate and to lay before them through the
president of the senate, and that neither
the president of the senate nor cither ol
the houses nor both of them together
conld do anything In the matter, but just
take what was given without Inquiring
Into the genuineness of it. All the work
of the counterfeiters was as well entitled
to be regarded as truth as the mere
spawn ot a criminal conspiracy got up
tor the purpose of cheating the people of
a state and the people ol the Union, over
turning and overthrowing the great
principle underlying the institutions
ol the country. The man who
undertook to say he certified to
the election of these men, while he did it
there glared upon him from the record
which lay belore him evidence that the
lact was the other way, was counterfeited
and the papers issued by him was fraudu
lent. 11 the paper was fraudulent, was
it not as void in law and as corrupt in
morals as if it was a simple counterfeit
made by somebody else than by the man
who professed to sign it ?
Mr. Black cited what he called the evi
dence of fraud, the various proceedings
to overturn Hayes and Wheeler electors,
and added that the state had determined
not to be cheated out ot her vote
and had said that she would ascer
tain the truth in some undeniable
form by a proceeding, correctness and
truth of which could neyer be impeached.
She therefore had taken those usnrpers
by the throat, had dragged them in a
court ot justice, and there .in the pres.
ence of a competent tribunal she had
impleaded them, charged tbetn vrlih the
offence, brousTht of ''er parties who were
claimed to be her agents and set them
face to lace. The proofs had ben given

It had been frequently held that where

Washington, Feb. 3. Maddox was
again to-day before the committee on the
powers, privileges and duties ol the
house la counUng the electoral vote, and
after sayiug I fuel much indisposed this
morning and would therefore asked to
be excused till Monday, handed to Field
two letters spoken of so often during his
previous examination. One was read by
Field as follows :

tbeae letters Ihey were lit New Orleans,
but had been received by him to-day.
At this point Senator West entered the
room when Mr. Field asked him to open
the letter addressd to Senator West. lie
replied he would open the letter and
read the contents as lollows :

me, my esteemed sir, warn you ot the
danger. Millions have been sent here
and will be used in the interest of Tilden,
and unless there is some counter-movement
it will be impossible for roe or any
other individual to arrest its productive
results. The gentleman presenting this
letter is fully aware of the moves, and it
you allow will communicate freely to our

Senator West permitted the committee
to take a copy of the letter.
Mr. Lawrence asked Mr. .Maddox
whether anybody offered hlui $.0,000 to

went to Louisiana to investigate.
