IT WIU MOT
llsrikle llwitr im Htlnele-Tsie
1 YTasksoto, Feb. r.-Tlie electoral
ttmmlnton commenced IM eeuion to-4ay
ttea. o'clock and continued until four. A
larg crowd of Interested persons were
In frost of the doors of the court room,
expressing treat anxiety to learn ttie re
sult of tbe deliberation .
As tbe members of tbe commission
came Into tbe lobby on tbelr way out or
tbeeapitol they were eagerly surrounded
by their personal friends and Interro
As tbe injunction of sccresy had been
removed there was no-objection to riving-
the desired information.
Tbe following Is the minute of the off!
clal record ot tbe commlss ion :
THE OFFICIAL RECORD.
On motion of Justice Miller, ordered
that no eTidence will be received or con
aidered by tbe commission which was
not submitted to the joint convention of
the two houses by the president of the
senate with the different certificate?, ex
cept such as relates to the eligibility of
F. C. Humphreys, one of the electors.
The rote is as follows :;
Yeas Messrs. Bradley, Edmunds,
Frellngbuysen, Garfield, Hear, Miller,
Morton and Strong i.
Nays Messrs. Abbott, Bayard, CHI
ford, Field, Hunton, Payae and Thur
man 7. . y .
Oa motion of Mr. Abbott :
Resolved that in the case of Florida
this commission will receive evidence re
lating to the eligibility or Frederick C.
Humphreys, and of tbe persons named
in certificate No. 1, as elector.
Yeas Messrs. Abbott, Bayard, Brad
ley, Clifford, Field, Hunton, Payne and
Nays Messrs. Edmunds, Frelinghuy
sen, Garfield, Hoar, Miller Morton and
Tbe secretary of the commission was
Instructed to inform the counsel on the
respective sides that at 11 o'clock to-mor-1
row it will be prepared to hear argument
on the question of the eligibility of Fred
erick C. Humphreys as an elector.
Humphreys is one ot the Republican
electors, and the question raised as to his
eligibility is that he was, at the date ot
his election, a United States shipping
commissioner, which is alleged to be such
an office ol trust or profit as to disqualify
him from acting as an elector, but which
office, it is asserted by Republicans, he
resigned before the election.
EFFECT Or THE DECISION.
The commission by their decision to
day will have before them In the Florida
case three sets of papers, namely :
1 The certificate ol the Hayes elec
tors. 8 That ot the Tilden electors.
t The paper containing the record of
uiej circuit court oi r lonua in me quo
warranto and subsequent action of the
legislature of that state.
Sepublicans express themselves grati
fied with the decision of the commission
while Democrats are somewhat discour
aged by it Tbe former claim that no
consequence will be attached te ths quo
warranto proceeding of tbe circuit court
of Florida as they are now under appeal
to the supreme court of tbst state, and
therefore not final. It seems to be the
prevalent belief that tbe ultimate decis
ion will be in favor of Hayes and
Wheeler, in the Florida electors, and that
the course lu this case will be pursued
with regard to Louisiana, where there
are two alleged ineligible electors and
more than one return. A prominent
Democrat of the commission said this
afternoon that the meaning of the vote
of the commission is that tbe- ministerial
acts ot state executive officers are to
be respected, but not those
ol the judiciary. He added, how
ever, that as the Democratic certifi
cates embody the proceedings ot tbe
eourt they will, by this decision, be fully
opened up for consideration and argu
ment The Democrats also find some
satisfaction la the fact that the rule es
tablished by the commission will lead to
the ascertainment that Watts, Republi
can elector In Oregon, was Ineligible at
tbe time ot his election, and hence only
two Republican electors from that state
can be counted, Cronin, Democrat, being
tbe third elector. On this supposition
they think the Democrats still hare a
chance for the presidency, and that the
election may be thrown Into the house,
where Tilden would be elected, and that I
in such event the choke ot Wheeler as
vioe-Dreaident would devolve on the sen
ate. The decision of the commission is
discujucd at hotels and in private politi
cal circles to-night, all conceding that
the Republicans soemingly have the ad'
Ttuiac. democrats express their re
gret that parties were strictly devided on

IVAsnrsGTo, Feb. ".An objection
will be made from the Democratic side
to th counting of the electoral tote of I
Illinois when the two houses shall again
meet in Joint session to count the elec
toral vote. The basis of such objection
is the following information received
Ibis afternoon by Hon. Win. N. Springer
of that state, dated Springfield, Feb." :
Chaffee, Hayes elector, wea U. S. cem-
miftsioner for the Southern district or
Illinois when elected. He acted as elec
tor without resigning his oflloe. The
proof la positive. He is here and admits
it, ana tne records snow it.
Signed 1 u. w. w khdliko.
. L. Merritt.
As there Is only ont return from Illi
nois the objection to counting the vote is
required to be signed by at least one sen
ator and one member of tlie house,
whereupon the two bouses will separate
for action. No vote or vote from any
state from which but one return has
been received can b3 rejected except by
the affirmative vote ot the two houses.
This case will not be sublet to the eleo,
I oral commission.
GEO. L. MIl.LKR EXAMINED.
Washington. Feb. 7. The senate
committee investigating the Oregon
electoral case this morning examined lr,
Geo. D. Miller, of Omaha, who is a mem'
ber of the national Democratic commit
tee. He testified that he had telegraphic
correspondence with V. F. Pelton in No-
ember last in relation to the Oregon
case: was requested Dy reuon 10 ko to
Oregon and do what he could to pre
vent Watts getting the certificate as it
was believed the Democrats bad a good
case .here. Could not go but sent J. II.
Nothing was ever said about illegitl
mate use of money to him in connection
with the Oregon case. Told Patrick that
the necessarv expenses for the trip to
Oregon would be paid from headquar
ters. Saw Patrick upou his return.
He said lawyers bad been, retained to
arctte against the issuuur oi a certi
ficate to Watts. Witness thought Pat
rick said something about a member ot a
law firm retained by the Democrats be
ing connected with the Ortgonian, a
paper published at Portland, but did not
understand this was the maiu reason for
employing the firm. Received no dis
patches asking him to help rawe money
to pay expenses ot any sort In connection
Senator Kerimn introduced the follow
ing dispatches :

The Democrats claim that Watts is
ineligible, being postmaster at the time
ot election. He has now resigned and
his resignation has been accepted. The
vote not beinsr canvassed vet he will un
doubtedly be all right. In the event ot
the secretary of state relusing to crive
certificate to Watts and recognizing the

FUNDING MUNICIPAL DEBTS?
Sly 'ttl at lj)rrl
(iecial to the M. Loais Itepublkan .
SraisGFULD, Feb. C The editorials
of the Republican upon funding the mu
nicipal indebtedness of Illinois attract
considerable attention here, which is
about to take shape in the form ol an
amendmeut to the constitution.
Upon this proposition the leading con
stitutional lawyers in and about the gen
eral assembly have beeu consulted. Heu-
ator William R. Archer, chairman ot the
senate judiciary committee, gives the
proposed amendment his cordial nip
port Ex-senator Torn Casey of Jeflerson
county expresses himself as follows:
"Speaking lor the people of my country,
I feel Justified in saying that they would
vote unanimously for the amendment.
Our taxes are generally too high and It
is difficult tor good men to pay them.
Add to these the $125,000 of railroad aid
debt, drawing eight per ceet luterest.and
the burden u euormous in the extreme.
I have no hesitation In saying tu. rail
read aid debt could be funded so as to
meet the approbation of the people, it
would be cordially indorsed. Had it not
been lor the Inducements held out by the
law of IW9 the people of Jtflerson
countr would hardly bare Incurred this
heavy debt and Its exorbitant Interest
But having done so, in obedience to law,
they now teel that It Is no more than just
that the legislature should provide some
war of relief tor them. '
Ex-Senator Eugene Canfleld, of Kane
county holds the same views. The peo
ple of Kane county are paying 10 ru,r
cent, on $102,000 railroad bonds, and so
long as the present system is maintained
they are steadily drained of $19,200, and
that, too, without reducing the princi
Kx-enator m. Reddick, of LaSalle
cordially approves the proposed amend
ment, as his county would obtain relief
Ex-senator Wm, H. Green, ol Cairo
has given the subject much thought and
earnestly advocates an amendment look
ing toward funding municipal indebted
ness. He sayst A constitutional amend
ment under which the Interest-bearing
debts of counties, township? and munici
palities could be fuuded by
the issuance and acceptance ol
state Londs, should be regarded as
the most important subject for leg
islation by the present general assembly .
The welfare of the state would be more
advanced by it (if the amendment should
be adopted) than by all the other acts
which will probably be passed. Illinois
state bonds bearing 3 per cent, would
be treated in the stock market as a better
security for Investments than county or
township bonds bearing 10 per cent.f
and subject to Irregular payment of In
terest, and possible repudiation. The
amendment suggested, however, does
not apply the full remedy. The slate
ought to assume the debts of the coun.
ties, and for similar though less cogent
reasons, the debts of townships and cit
ies. The counties do not bear the same
relation to the states as do the original
thirteen states to the Lmon. ihey are
created by the state, and are merely con
venient subdivisions ot tbe territory of
the state for the purpose ot the local ad
ministration of the laws. Their public
buildings are erected, their offlcers
elected and the expense of their
eourts incurred to enforce state laws.
Their debts were created in pursuauce of
state laws, and especially the railroad
debts of the counties were incurred upon
the faith ot -a state law the "railroad
grab-law ol 18C0" whhh was held un
constitutional. If the counties are op
pressed by taxation, and population and
property thereby driven away, the state
sutlers in diminished numbers and
wealth. It the taxation in the counties
is greater than the property can bear, the
value of the property is lessened, and the
state again suffers In a decrease of the ag
gregate source of her revenue ; and it re
pudiationcounty bankruptcy occurs,
the state suffers in character, it is ob
jected that the assumption of tbe county
debts would be unjust to the counties not
in debt. This objection would seem not
to bear Investigation. Probably without
a single exception the county and town-
bhlp debts, and mainly the city debts,
arose from the cost ot public improve
ments, such as court houses, jails, rail
road, water-works, etc. Kvery
railroad in the state built
by the aid of county or municipal bonds
has added to the aggregate wealth and
general prosperity ot the state, although
the given aid may have made bankrupt
the particular county or city ; and by the
added wealth the percentage of taxation
has been reduced, while many of such
railroads have aided in building up its
chief city. There is another and a very
practical view of this question. In many
of the counties tlio burden of taxation is
more than they can bear the property
will not retain value under the existing
taxation. On tbe other hand, the state
can relieve them and not feel the burden.
If Vanderbilt had induced the public to
give credit to his sons to the amount et
five millions without Imposing any legal
liability upon himself, and part of them
bad become unable to pay their creditors,
he would have been morally bound to
pay their debts for them ; and he might
properly have taken tbe interest upon
tbe expected inheritance ol all his sons
to liquidate the 'debts of his less
thrifty ones. The state induced the pub
lic to give credit to these counties. The
state is not legally bound to pay their
debts, but In so far as moral obligations
may rest upon governments the state of
Illinois is bound to provide for their pay
ment, aud the assumed burthen would
be so light it would hardlr be appre
ciable. The amount stated by the Re
publican in a late editorial is probably
too large, but upon the basis of 40,000,
000 as the aggregate of county, town
ship and municipal Indebtedness, the an
nual interest would be $1,400,000. To
that add oue per cent, for a sinking fund
to pay the principal and the aggregate
amount to bo raised from taxation by
the state annually would be $l,S00,00O.
The entire revenue of nearly $1,000,000
was collected in 1176 by the state from a
levy of 30 cents on each $100 worth of
property. With the completion of the
state house tbe annual taxation under ex.
toting laws will bo reduced as much as
$1,000,000, and the state tax levy after
the present year need not exceed 23 cents
to the $100. To raise the amount neces
sary to pay the interest on the assumed
debts ot the counties and municipalities,
and to supvly the kinking fuud, a levy
of something less than 14 cents to the
$100 only would be required. Thus it
appears that only a levy of 3T cent en
the oue hundred dollars would be mfll
eieut to carry on our sUte government
aflixually aud relieve the counties of
their oppressive debts under which many
are now pending, and some literally
breaking. The operation of the sinking
fuud would annually reduce this light
burthen. These debts mainly came into
existence as the result of the extrava
gance consequent upon the civil war, en
couraged by state legislation. Provision
should be made in the proposed amend
ment against legislation which would
permit any similar extravagance lu the
