Washington, Feb. 10. The capltol li
crowded again to-day, but only a small
proportion of those filling the halls and
corridors have the needful ticket ot ad
mission to the galleries of the house.
Precisely at 1 o'clock the senate took
their seats in Joint session with the house,
and President Ferry took the chair.
The decision of the electoral commis
sion having been read, written objections
were made to it by Representative Field
on the part of the five senators and
twelve representatiTes, and then the two
ras ooiuirMioM's decision-.
The electoral commission state the
grounds Of their decision In the case of
Florida as follows : That it Is not com
petent, under the constitution and law as
It existed at the date of the passage of
the act constituting the commission, to
go into evidence aliunde. The papers
opened by the president of the senate In
the presence of the two bouses to prore
that other persons than those regularly
certified to by the governor of Florida,
according to determination and declara
tion ot then appointment by the board ot
state canvassers, prior to the time re
quired for the performance of their du
ties, had been appointed electors, or by
the counter proof to show that they had
not, and that .all proceedings of the
court, or acts or the legislature, or
of the executive ot Florida subsequent
to casting ot the votes ot the electors on
the prescribed day, are inadmissible for
any such purpose. To the objection
made to the eligibility of Humphreys the
commission is of the opinion that with
out reference to the question ot the effect
of the vote of an Ineligible elector the
evidence does not show he held the office
of shipping commissioner on the day
when the electors were appointed. The
cosnmlatlo also decided that as a conse
quence of the foregoing, and upon the
grounds before stated, neither of the
papers purporting to be certificates of the
electoral votes of Florida are certificates
as votes provided tor by the constitution
of the United States, and they ought not
to be counted as such.
THE OBJECTIONS TO THE DECISION,
Interposed in the house :
1. That the decision- determined that
thevotecastbyChas.il. Pearce, Fred
rick C. Humphreys, Wni. JJ. Iloldcn
and Thos. IT. Long, as electors of presi
dent and vice-prciident of the United
States on behalf ot Florida, is the true
and legal electoral vote of the state, when
in truth and In fact the vote cast by Wil
kinson Call, James E. Yonge, Eobt. .
Hilton, and Bobt Bullock is tlio true and
lawful vote of the state.
2. That the commission refused to re
ceive competent and material evidence
tenting to prove that the first named set
were not appointed electors in the man
ner prescribed by the legislature of the
stau, but was designated as electors by
the returning board of the state, cor
ruptly and fraudulently In disregard of
law ana with intent to defeat the will of
3. That the decision was founded upon
the resolution and order of the commis
sion previously made.
i. The decision excludes all evidence
taken bv the two bouses of congress, by
the committees ot each house, concern
ing frauds, errors and ii regularities com
mitted by the persons whose eertifleates
are taken as proof oi the due appoint
ment of electors.
5. That the decision excludes all
evidence tending to proye that the certi

board of state fauvassers, was procured
or given in pursuance of a fraudulent and
6. That the commission refuse to rec

to review and reverse the Judgment of
the returning board or the board of state
canvassers rendered through fraud, with.

to consider the action of the courts in the
case lawfully brought before a cour
which had jurisdiction.
7. That the decision excludes all evi

REPORT Of TBI MIXOniTV.
Washington, Feb. Representa
tives Hurlbut, Townsend, Danford,
Crapo and Joyce have made their minor
ity report In the Louisiana investigation,
concluding as follows s
For the first time in the history of this
country it has been attempted to destroy
the lawful and formal expression of a
state in the election of president by
assuming ' power In the house
of representatives to examine Into
any and all polls and to purge elections.
To make itself a returning board and de
termine by partisan vote what Louisiana
ought to have done. We regard it as the
most fatal attack ever attempted upon
constitutional right, as a gross usurpa
tion of power, as subjecting in its natural
dcvelopemeat the entire question of elec
tion of president to the will or decision
of the bouse ot representatives. What
has been attempted by this Democratic
bouse Ja Louisiana may be done on the
same principle by some other dominant
party in any other state whose
vote may be in the way of
their party candidate. The cry of frand
is quickly raised, and Is readily repeated
and far too easily believed. Evidence Is
always ready to support that or any
charge li a great political advantage Is to
be gained. The only way to preserve
just balance of power Is to stand by and
support the formal deliberate and lawful
decisions of the tribunal constituted
for the purpose ordained under the
constitution by the highest state author
Ity, by laws, which have been ex
pounded and sustained by the proper
supreme courts is to substitute guess
work for legitimate decision, the rule ot
mob for orderly processes of law,' the
control by the house ot representatives
whose days are numbered tor a determi
nation made by the people themselves in
due and regular form chosen by them,
selves. Passion and prejudice will wear
themselves out in time. The wild decla
mation of Intemperate orators will soon
be forrorten. . . The rash assertions of
party presses will pass from men's
minds and then this case of Louisiana
will perhaps be iairly considered and
verdict of thoughtful men will be that
the Democratic party ot that unhappy
state are justly to be held responsible for
the continuous and organized attempts
by force to annul the clear will ol the
majority. The same calm judgment will
declare that the law ol 1870 , and
1872 were necessary safeguards against
such organized illegal forces and should
be approved by all who believe in the
supremacy ot law ; that this much abused
returning board acted in the spirit of the
law creating them and that their deter
mination is final in the matter.
Holding these views, the minority of
the committee submit them and do not
propose to follow in Its details the unau
thorized dissection of the vote made
from partisan and biased information by
the majority of the commlttc, but to
stand upon establishe J law and deliberate
the results of constitutional action of
sworn officers ot state, solemnly done,
performed and promulgated with all
sanctions ot law.
The undersigned submit herewith re
ports ot the minority members of the
sub-committee which was subdivided,
and close this report by offering the fol
lowing resolutions :
Retolvtd That the election held for pres
idential election in Louisiana, 7th No
vember, 1877, was examined into, deter
mined, declared and promulgated bv

lorms or law and in conformity with the
constitution ol the United States.

' GRANT'S TALK.

. : Situation.
II Dealree to Bee Hayes Elected, but

(Special to the St Louis Times.)
Washington, Feb. 11. There is a bet
ter feeling existing among the Demo
crats to-night, as it is begun to be under
stood that there Is a possibility that the
tribunal may not be able to continue Its
partisan work. Last night it was re
ported that the Chandler-Cameron gang
had brought such a fearful pressure to
bear upon the Republican members that
they had pledged to stand together on all
questions and see Hayes through at all
hazards. To-night It is believed the
party bulldozing has not been wholly a
success, and that two or three ot the
commission, particularly Hoar and l're
linghuysencaunot be depended upon.
The president's talk this evening:, a re
port of which is handed about iu the
hotel corridors and elsewhere, has not
done much to encourage the Republi
cans. They have all along been afraid
he would recognize the Nitholls govern
ment in Louisiana, and now they hare

to have the tribunal throw out the vote
of Louisiana, thus giving htm abundant
reason lor recognizing Nicholls and

MR. GRANT'S "CONVKRSATION."
(To the Western Associated Frees.)
Washington, Feb. 11. The president
to-night, in the course of a "conversa
tion," said it had appeared to him that
the Democrats of the house, by abruptly
taking a recess yesterday, intended to ob
struct the counting of tho electoral rote,
but on bis being informed that many
prominent Demociate bad disavowed
any intention to engage in mere dilatory
proceedings, that to-morrow they would
take action in the Florida case, and that
their delay was merely tor the purpose of
carefully examining all the papers as
they appeared this morning in print, he
said he was glad to hear it, as nothing
couiu be gained by resist insr the regular
order of business.
In speaking ot the intention of Demo
crats to make objection to a counting of
the electoral vote of Illinois, on account
of the alleged Ineligibility ot Mr. Chaf ee,
one ot the etectors, he said he did not see
how the vota of tho state on that account
could be rejected, and if the objection
were made to Chaflee only, the Demo
crats could derive no benefit from it. He
thought it was but fair that if a state had
voted tor either Hayes or Tilden, the full
vote ot such state should be counted ac
cording to its political complexion.
Although he hoped Hayes and Wheeler
would be declared elected, he felt some
what uncertain as to the result, because
he could not foresee what would be done
lu the case of Louisiana. It would be
recollected that four years ago, after bis
canvass ror re-election, the two houses
resolved not to count the electoral vote
of that state. Although the reasons in
the two cases might not bo similar there
seemed some uncertainty UDon the m.h.
jeci. Bnouia tne vote possibly be ex-
ciuuea uayes and Wheeler in thr
would be defeated, the latter not having
reccivea a majority of tho votes r,i n
the electors appointed, and, therefore, the
election ot president would be thrown
Into the house of representatives, leaving
the senate to elect the vice-president.
But be this as It might, be was satisfied
there would be no disturbance of the
psace, as both parties had committed the
determination of the disputed points to
tut iripitnal constituted for thai purpose. 1
THE ELECTORAL COUNT.
There was no unusual excitement to
night concerning the counting of the
electoral vote, and but few members of
congress were seen at the hotels, though
many other persons were engaged in dis
cussing the political situation. Promi
nent Democrats repent the asaurance
that they do not intend unnecessarily to
postpone action In the Florida case, and
that the question as to whether the vote
shall be counted will be taken to-morrow.
The Democrats depended on the
counting or this vote for their candidates,
but tho decision of the commission being
otherwise, some of them express the hope
that what they have lost In Florida may
be retrieved by rejecting the vote of
Louisiana. The Republicans are in bet
ter sprits than the Democrats In view of
the final result.
THE rOLICE BOARD.
Frederick Douglas lias resigned as a
member of the police board of commis
sioners. President Grant requested his
resignation In order that he might com

Alton, 111., Feb. 11 Between 11 and
12 o'clcck last night the alarm of fire was
sounded caused by the burning ot the
steamer Lizzie Bayliss, which was lying
at the levee Immediately opposite the

were promptly on hand, but the fire had

The captain, Oliver Gruell, was lost.
The rest of the crew, consisting of an

come on board during the evening, and
who was lying under the boilers, made a
narrow escape, being fairly

The origin ot the fire is unknown, but
as the flames originated in the upper part
ot the boat, they are supposed to have
been caused by a heated flue, as a large
fire had been built in the cabin stove by
the watchman, who had gone down to
the lower deck and remained there until
the tire was discovered.
