In raisrenct to ttie question of Mr.

the question raised in Joint convention.
No business transarttxl up to noon, the
senate awaiting a notification from the
house that that body was rca.ly to resume
the Joint sexton to continue the count.
At 2:20 the clerk ol the house appeared
at tbo bar of the senate and announced
the decision of the house that the count
ing of the rote of Florida shall not pro
ceed in conformity with the decision of
the electoral commission, and also noti
fied the senate that the hou?e was now
ready to meet the senate in joint meeting.
, The senate then proceeded to the (mil
ol the bouse.
The session was resumed at 10 a.m.
Sir. JlcCraxv rose to open the discus
sion upon the objection to the decision of
the electoral commission.
Mr. Clymer raised the point that there
was no Quorum present.
It was then agreed the debate t-liould
not begin till half past ten.
At that hour Mr. Field offered the fol

conformity with the decision of the elec
toral commission, but that the votes of
Call, Young, ililton and Bullock shall bo
counted as the Totes from tho State ol
Florids for president and vice-president
of the United States.
Mr. Hale moved as an amendment :
Ordered that the counting ot the elec
toral rote from the State of Florida shall
proceed in conformity with the decision
of the electoral commission .
Mr. Knott ofiercd as a substitute an
order reciting the language of tho elec

other papers as shall by the constitution
and now existing law be competent ; re
citing also the fact that in Use Florida.

spectflcaily allowing that the latter had

sen of Its decision, so that the house may
be enlightened as to the course It ought
to pursue in tbe discharge of its duties
and that in the meantime the votes of
the Hayes electors be not counted
Mr. Hale made a point of order that
under tbe electoral commission law it
was the imperative duty of the house at
the end of two hours' debate to vote on
the main question, which was whether
the votes should be counted in conform
ity with the decision, and that nothing in
abape ot delay, In whatever form pre'
seated, could now arrest the wheels of
air. Wilson, of Iowa, addod to Mr,
liale'a point of order that this house
could refer nothing to the commission
that would require at least concurrent
Mr. Wood ot New York declared tha
any intimation of a desire on the part of
the Democratic side of the house to Inter
pose any factious opposition to any
decision of the electoral commission was
entirely gratuitous and unsupported by
anything that had tuken place.
Mr. lisle : lias anything been said this
morning to indicate any charge of that !
Mr. Wood : The gentleman has just
spoken ot delay, and has intimated that
there Is an Intentional disposition ou the
part of the house to delay action. I can
assure the gentleman that there Is no
such VtAentlon. Wnlle M reaJy In
good taltn to carry out in all respects
l. . , . . ...
iuc cicvwnu coiumusion law ana the re
sult that may be reached in pursuance of
it, still at the tame time we demand the
right of free expression of opinion.
Mr. Knott contested the point of order
and thought there was nothing in the
law which prevented the bouse with the
concurrence of the senate, from remand
ing back to tbe electoral commission lor
their further consideration the decision
which It bad made in the Florida case in
order that it might bare an opportunity
to explain the glaring inconsistencies
w hich existed In that decision.
Mr. Banks said that under the provis
ion of tbe electoral act the bouse was
compelled to give an affirmative or teg
ative vote upon tbe decision ot tbe com
mission. It would not be respect to tbe
commission to remand the decision to It.
Tbe speaker overruled the point of or
der made by Mr. llale, but sutUiued that
made by Mr. Wilson.
Tbe speaker overruled the polm of
order made by Mr. lisle, but sustained
that wade by Mr. Wilson, holding that
there was nothing in the electoral com
mission law that authorised the recoup
mlttal 1 the question back to the com-
mission, nnd also ruling It was not com-
potent tor one bouse to refer a bill or auy
other nutter to an outside cotnuiUMou.
The substltuto oflcrrd hf Mr. Knott ws
therefore not In order.
The bouse thereupon proceeded to a
discussion ot the objection to the de
cision of the electoral commission.
Mr. MclVary addressed the bouse in
support of the report of the commission.
He held that the ruling of the commis
sion was abundantly supported by the
most cogent reasons and that to have
ruled otherwise would have lecn to a.ert
jurisdiction to inquire into and overturn
the action ol all the states in the appoint
ment of their electors rnd to Institute
proceedings in the nature of hii action of
quo warranto to try the title of every one
of the persons appointed as such. The
bill of 1S00, dratted, reported and advo
cated by John Marshall, afterwards chief
jus1 ice of the I'nited Htates,embfKlleil the
the views of that great const!
tutlonal lawyer upon this ques
tion. After providing for this
grand committee it defined their jiirisdlc
tion in these wonl : "And the person
thus chosen shall act for a joint commit'
tee and shall have power to examine
into all dispute relative to election of
president and vice-president of I'nited
States other than such as might relate to
number of votes by which the electors
may have been appointed.' It a jud,
ment In an interior court in Florida, ren
dered on the 27th of January, in an ac
tion of yo warranto, could annul the
vote of that state cast on the Gtfi of De
cember, ft followed tliut similar judg
incuts in all the other states might be
certilied to the president of the seuate
and must govern the court.
IIo wautcd to know if by an ex post
to ju Iginent in one state, one party
should se.'iirc an advantage, why by i
similar movement lu another state a cor
responding advantage might not be
sought for by another party and claimed
as tho result of such a policy, then in
stead of counting uuder the constitution
and law at the time prescribed it would
become necessary to count judgments in
quo toatwuto rendered In various states
and cuter Into inquiry as to the regular
ity and conclusion of these judicial pro
ceedings. There must be authority
somewhere and at some time to decide
who were appointed electors, and tho
only sale or sound or constitutional
rule iliat could bo found was
that adopted by tiie com-1
mlttce, to-wit : that the decision made
by the proper state authority urior to tbe
time tixod by the constitution and law
lor electing a president and vice-presi
dent of the Uuited States was final and
not subject to be set wide by congress.
The power ot congress was to count, not
to reject the duly certified vote ot states.
Mr. Tucker followed on the opposite
side. ILi said the members of the com-
mis&ion had taken an oath to render
judgment according to the constitution
and law. The commission in passing on
the eligibility ot Humphreys had de
clined to pass on the question of tliu va
lidity of tbe vote of an incompetent elec
tor Did the commission mean to de
cide that ths ineligibility of an elector
was to have no effect on the validity.
The debate was continued hy Messrs.
IJanks and Frye in favor of the report
of the commission, and Messrs. Springer
and Ilurd in opposition of his
vote. It the state appointed an
ineligible elector was l.e notwithstanding
to be declared by the committee and by
the two houses to be a competent elector,
and his vote to be a valid vote? It so,
then the acts of the canvassing board of
the state was valid and the constitution
quod hoe was void. In regard to tho main
question the deoislon of the commission
was to the eflect that the only voice per
mitted to speak tor a state in the matt
ot a presidential election was the voice ot
a canvassing board and of an executive,
and that the voice of the judiciary and
legislature must be hushed into silence,
He contended that all the organism of a
stato must speak its voice.
me deDate closed at 1:15 and the
house proceeded to vote.
Mr. Hale a amendment was rejected :
Yeas, 07; nays, 1C7, and Mr. Field's
Mr. Walker, ot Virginia (Democrat),
said he was one of tho Democrats who
had supported the electoral bill in good
faith, and he would say to the gentleman
from Indiana (Carr) that it would take
more than him and the tew Democrats
who voted with him against that measure
to read the majority of the house out of
the Democratic party.
Mr. Field said the decision of this
tribunal as it had been made is entitled
to po resiect. It is as unfounded in
morals as it is tiu.ound in law
and injurious and nerulcious in
its consequerccs. The spectacle
of successful villainy is corrupting in
proportion to the extent of the theater on
hich It is enacted and the nrlze which

ii li is won now the example will be
more Injurious to our good name, ami
more corrupt to our people than all the
iwcuiBuuiis, me roooerica and frauds of
all our history.
It was then ordered that the clerk in

brmGiiELr, tcb, 12. Mr. Cullou"
bill to prevent the spread of hog cholera,
introduced In the bouse ou last Friday
and published in" Saturday's Rrpuhtican,
excites considerable inquiry as to the ne
cessity of iuxb a measure. The object of
tbe proKed law is two fold : first, to
prevent tlie carcasses being carried alojig
the road to rendering establishments
and imputing tue .twospbere with
if""" of the disease; and
second, to break up the ,,mero rcn.
Jerlng estaM'glltwntii which It Is lo-
Ueved manufacture lard from diseased
hogs and dispose ot the , same In
the large cities as pure leaf lard
and receive the same price ns undiseased
lard, thus making three to four cents
clear profit on each pound. A minute
chemical and mlcrocopml analysis can
only detect tho dlflerence between the
lards, as the disease does not eflect the
color or taste. The diseased lard is
shipped usually from the rendering es
tablishments in package marked as soap
grease, and consigned to commission
merchants iu the ring In Chicago, St.
IkhiIs and Cairo. These merchants either
uilx the lards or change the tubs and
barrels and then sell It tor highest price
It Is believed that the surprising In
crease or intestinal diseases among
citizens In the cities may be traced to the
hog-cholera parasites in diseased lard.
The extent ot the disease In Illinois alone
is enormous. According to the statistics
collected on the subject by Mr. S. D.
Fisher, the secretary of the Illinois de
partment of agriculture, seventeen and
two-thirds per cent, of t lie hog
crop were lost In 1S70 by this disease.
The value of the hogs thus af
fected was about $7,880,000. The
owners of this cholera stock In probably
three-fourths ol the cases sold the car
casses to rendering establishments for
one to two cents per pound. So fur this
year the reports received here by the ag
ricultural department and from the rural
members of the legislature indicate no
decrsasein the extent of the disease. The
committees on agriculture in the legisla
ture have now under consideration a
proposition to Introduce a bill tor the
thorough investigation of the subject
of hog cholera by a scientlllc commis
sion. COUNTING THE VOTES.

Washington, Feb. 15. At 2:33 p.m.
the senators arrived and took their
places. The presiding officer arose and
said : The joint meeting ot congress
will resume its session. The two houses
separately have considered and deter
mined the objection submitted by the
members of tha house to the decblon of
the commission on the certificates lrom
the state ot Florida. The clerk ol the
senate will now read the decision of the
senate. The decision of the senate hay
ing been read by Its clerk, and that of
house by its clerk, the presiding olileer
said : The two houses not concurring
in ordering otherwise, the decision ot the
commission will stand unreversed. Tho
counting will now proceed. In con
formity with the decision ot the commis
sion the tellers will announce the vote of
Senator Allison thereupon announced
that the State ol Florida had given four
votes lor 15. Ii. Hayes of Ohio as presi
dent, and four votes for Win. A. Wheeler
as vice-president .
The vice-president then opened the
certificates from the State of Georgia and
handed them to tins tellers. It was read
by Representative Cook of Georgia.
The presiding otlieer asked whether
there was any objection to the vote of
Georgia. None being made, he an
nounced that the vote would bo counted,
and directed the tellers to declare it, Mr.
Cook then declared that the state of
Georgia had given eleven votes for Sam
uel J. Tilden of New York as president,
and eleven votes for Thomas A. Hen
dricks of Indiana as vice-president.
Next followed lu succession the Suites
of Illinois with twenty-one votes for
Hayes and Wheeler ; Indiana with fifteen
votes for Tilden and Hendricks ; Iowa
with eleven votes for Hayes and
Wheeler; Kansas with live votes for
Hsyes and Wheeler, and Kentucky with
ten votes for Tilden and Hendricks.
Then canio the certificate from the
State of Louisiana, showing eight votes
tor Hayes and Wheeler, the presiding
oftlecr statinff that the certilicate had
been received by mail, and that no cor
responding one had been received by
messenger. The messenger appointed
lor that purpose was Thomas C. Ander
son, one of tho returning board. This
certilicate was authenticated by Kellogg

a third certilicate was opened and read,

secretary of state.

should be suppressed.

The reading was proceeded with to

At this stage of the reading Senator
McDonald suggested that the two houes

was read 'To the vice-president of the
I'nited States. Washington. Vote of the

the teller to proceed with the reading.
After a tew more sentences had been

had been made.
Mr. Hoar required that any person ol

Mr. Wells (rising) As this Is a bur
lesque act, I object.
The reaJiug was theu proceeded With

"John Smith. Company No. '1 Bull

winding up with the motto : "Such is
life in Louisiana. ' Subsequently the
presiding officer directed the paper to be
omitted from the proceedings of the
Senator McDonald submitted objection
to the Hayes aud Wheeler certificates on
the ground that the Hayes electors had
not been duly elected; that their
election had been certitled by Win. P.
Kellogg, who claimed to be but was not
in fact governor of the State of LoHisiana,
and because the returning board was
without jurisdiction for the reason
that the laws ol Louisiana
conferred no power ou the returnius
board to canvass and compile tho votes.
since they constituted but four ot the five
persons required by law ; since these four
were of the same political party, and
r since there was a vacancy in said board
which the said tour members had refused
to fill because the four members ol the
returning board had full knowledge that
a true compilation ot votes would have
shown that the Tilden electors had been
duly elected because said board had
offered tor money to sell the vote of
Louisiana, und because 11. Ii. Lcvi3seand
O. A. Brewster had held offices of trust
under the United Btates at the time ot
their appointment as electors. The ot.
Jection wa signed by McDonald, Sauls
bury and Bogy, senators ; Jenkins, Gib
son, Tucker, Kllis and Morrison,
Mr. Gibson also sent up objections to
the Hayes and Wheeler certilicatts be
cause : First, the government of Louisi
ana was not republican in form , second,
no canvass was made on which the cer
tificates of election were issued ; third,
an alleged canvass of votes was an act of
usurpation, fraudulent ami void ; fourth,
some ot the electors were ineligible by the
laws ot Louisiana, and were disqualified
from being electors as holding stato offi
ces, Kellogg being acting de Jaett, gover
nor ; Jaffraiti, su:ervior of registration
for the parish of Point Coupee ; Marks,
district attorney, and Burcli, a member
of the state senate, a member ot the
board of control ot the state penitentiary,
an administrator ot the Deaf and Dumb
asylum, and treasurer of the school
board of Fast Baton Eotige ; aud because
Jafl'rain was specially disqualified by the
thirteenth section of the act of the legis
lature of the 21th of July, 171, which
provides that no supcrvjsoi of registra
tion shall be eligible to any office at that
election, and because Jafl'rain was at the
last election supervisor of registration
for the parish of Point Coupee.
This objection Is signed by Senators
Saulsbury, McDonaM and Teller, and
Representatives Jenls, Tucker, Gibson,
Field, Levy and Egbert.
Mr. Wood, ol Nev York, submitted
further objection in the Hayes and
Wheeler certificates on the ground that
the electors were not elected a provided
by the legislature.
Mr. Howe submitted objection the
Tilden and Hendricks certitlcates on the
ground that there was no evidence that
those electors had been appointed In
such manner as the legislature directed,
while there wu evidence conclusive in
law that neither of them had
been so npoiiitcd ; also ou the
ground that there was no evidence
that McEuery v4g governor Of
Louisiana in the vear 1870, while there
was convlu.ive evidence that Kellogg
was, during the yu;ir 1870, and for sevc
ral years prior thereto, gevernor of tlwt
state, and was recognized as such by the
judicial and legislative departments of
Louisiana, aud by all the departments of
the government of the United States.
The Presiding Officer Are there
further objections to tho vote of the State
of Louitiaua'r (Altera pause.") There
being no further objection all the certifi
cates from that state, with the papers ac
coiiipaning the euuie, together with the
