Mr. Field to the chairman : Is it not a

a witness to refuse to answer questions
propounded by a committee ?
The Chairman: It is.
Mr. Field: The witness is contuma
cious In the highest degree.
Mr. Field then exhibited to the witness

approbation of any other member ot the

Littleflcld's statement that he directed

who said they were forced to vote con
trary to their wishes.
In the further examination witness
said no votes were rejected except in con
sequence of indimidation, and among
other things Mr. Field called the attention
of the witness to the fact that it appeared
that in the parish of Concordia Josephs,
one of the Republican electors, received
1,050 votes, while the certificate of the
returning board credited him with 2,538
Witness replied it was in evidence tha
a troop of horsemen seized the ballot-box
from the commissioners of election, who
made up the retnrns from their count
and sent tbemin.
Mr. Field asked witness whether he
did not say before the Morrison commit
tee that this happened in Madison.
Witness replied : Yes, and something
of the kind In Concordia also.
Mr. Field called the attention of the
witness to the fact that, white tho board,
by throwing out 10,000 votes cast for the
Tiitfen electors, gave the electoral vote
for Hayes, wltuesa omitted to account
tor their act ot thus giving tlic latter 3,-
000 or 4,000 majority. .
In response to questions by Mr. Law
rence, witness said the board gave to the
Hayes ticket only such votes as it was
entitled to receive : that they took no
votes from Democrats contrary to law
The Electoral ComntlMioB.

an hour in the middle of the afternoon
remained In secret session until nearly

No votes wero taken to-day, nor was
any conclusion reached on any point at

of evidence shall be decided to-morrow
It can be stated that according to pres
ent indications a majority of the eommis
sion will decide that in addition to the
electoral certificates no evidence can be
received by the commission in regard to
the Florida case, except such as relate
merely to the action ot the Florida state
government subsequent to the presiden
Conceding thU to be the determination
of the commission, their inquiries in re
gard to matters ot fact will be restricted
to a comparatively narrow range, and
thus a Una! decision In the Florida case
may be expected sooner than has been
The evidence concerning the action of
the Florida courts and legislature on the
matter in controversy is of documentary
character and is already accessible to the
commission. It is probable, therefore,
that their final decision in the Florida case
will be reported to the joint session of the
two bouses before the close of the present

Witness: I have said so. I will ex
plain. The results throughout the states
bad not been known so far as theso states
were concerned where there was no trou'

the whole matter in regard to those three
southern states was iu doubt.

two great parties ; might you not say the
nation depended on Louisiana, Florida
and South Carolina ? A. So far as had been

Q. Hut how was that a duty to Geu.
Grant? A. From the simple fact that
he bad invited these gentlemen to go
