After a number ot speeches of special
significance were made a vote was taken
on Mr. 8prloger's resolution that the

agreed to without division.
The senate waa then notified the house

At 11:46 the senate and house met In
joint convention, the presiding officer
haying called the meeting to order and
directed the reading of tbe resolutions of
each house in favor of counting the votes
Tbe teller then announced that Nevada
had cast the votes for Hayes and Wheeler.
Then followed in succession the states
of New Hampshire with 5 votes for
Hayes and Wheeler ; New Jersey, 9 votes
for Tlldcn and Hendricks ; New York,
85 votes for Tilden and Hendricks;
North Carolina, 10 votes lor Tilden and

The presiding officer now opened and
handed to tbe tellers the certificate re
ceived from Oregon. It was read by Mr.
Stone, and proved to be the sworn certi
ficate of the three Hayes electors. Cart
wright, Odell and Watts, executed belore
a notary public. '
The papers contain a lull statement of
tbe doings ot the three electors the res
tffaatlon of Watts as postmaster, his sub-
aeorfrlnai ballots cast by the three
lectors, Ac. They were read in full.
The presidiog officer then handed to
the tellers the certificates of the three
rival electors, Cronln, Miller and Parker,
authenticated by the signatures ot the
governor and secretary of state, with tbe
seal ot state attached. This certificate
giyes two votes to Hayes and Wheeler
and ,one vote to Tilden and Hendricks.
Senator Mitchell presented objections
to the certificate of Cronln, Miller and
Parker on the following grounds :
1. Because neither of said persons was
ever appointed elector by the state of Or
egon in any manner whatever.
2. Because it appears from the records
and papers contained in and attached to
the certificate ot W. H. Odell, J. C.
Cartright and John W. Watts that thev
were duly appointed electors and cast
weir voiesas sucn.
. Because it does not appear from the
face ot Ooy. Grover's certificate, attached
to the returns of the votes of Cronin,
Miller and Farker, that auch certificate
was issued to three persons having the
highest number ot votes for electors, but
was issued by him to persons whom he
deemed eligible, though one of them, E.
A. Cronln, was appointed thereto accord
log to Um laws of Oregon.
Because it appears from the certifl
f,'1! Cbadwick, secretary of atata,
that Odell,Cartwrightand Watts received
the highest number of votes, end that
tne secretary of state in pursuance of
law so declared, and that therefore the
eertifieate of the governor, in so far as It
onuuea to certtty the name ot J. W.
Watts as one of the electors appointed,
and in so far as such certificate contained
the name of . . Cronin aa one ol the
lectors appointed, tails to conform to the
act ot congress in such cases made and
provided and to the law oi Oregon, and
that such certificate is. as to said Cronln.
without authority and of no eflect.
6 Because it appears from both certifl
catea that Odell and Cartwright, the ma
Jorlty of the electoral college, were duly
appointed lectors toy Oregon tn tbe
maaner directed by the Itruuvm f ,.
their record pt cuCca to toe president of
the senate and by him to tbe two houses,
shows that a vacancy in the office of
elector existed on the day fixed by law
lor tbe meeting of tbe electors and that
aneh a vacancy was filled by the appoint
ment or weus.

In tbe room.
The orders in both cases were granted,
and at the request of Senator Kelly, who
was acting for objectors, a recess ot half
aa hour was taken to allow him to pro
cure the necessary books, tc.
The commission was called to order
again at ten minutes past 2 o'clock, and
Senator Kelly proceeded to submit his
objections to certificate No. 1.
SENATOR KELLY'S ARGCMIKT.
He said ne pieauu.va iui iu wouiu
I ,if i""'" .-....,
viz., mac waits was postmaster, and
they were prepared with proof to sustain
the allegation. Jt this was an office of
profit or trust, the constitutional Inbibi
tion was as clear as language could make
It. Mr. Kelly argued that Watts was
not qualified on the 7th of November,
when the election took place. He could
aot be elected at any subsequent election.
In tbe Vermont case, he said, the legis
lature had been convened and had de
cided that Solace being postmaster was a
Federal officer, and consequently ineligi
bte, and had filled tbe vacancy.
the Rhode Island legislature had
mien a similar view, ana tilled tne va
cancy in like manner. He contended
thit the states bad power to enforce the
previsions of tbe constitution, and that
if the state of Oregon had excluded In
eligible electors, she had but done her
lie contended that by the constitution
and laws ot Oregon the person receiving
the highest number of votes was entitled
to be declared elected.
The election was required to be held
November 7, and there was not time to
noiu a second one. neither was such a
subsequent election authorized.
Mr. Kelly argued! that, this was a ques
tion lor tne executive and tbe governor
had the right to decide. The governor
has, he said, the right to inquire into
these facts. He has the right to inauire
into ineligibility and issue a commission
when there is any infraction of the con
stitution. In other words, in tbe very
words of tbe constitution, he shall see
that the laws ars faithfully executed.
Shall he sit quietly by, knowing that this
man Watts was a postmaster holding an
office of trust under the constitution of
the United States and or the state ol
Oregon, and see both trampled under!

no vidence that there was a canvass by

JiepretntaUve Jenks next addressed
the comnssloa tor the Democratic side,
and alteriulte a lengthy argument, thus
summed op the propositions be had
sougmwnow: First, that the only
evidence etore you which conforms to
the law cfthe land is the evidence as re.
quired by,ie law of Oregon aad the law
of the Urued State, that which is certified
toby the yernor of the State of Ore

Then the case stands in this way i Cro
nin come and votes ; two others come
and vote ; but you do not know whether
they are the persons voted for or not
because they do not come Identified as
the law says they shall come. But as
suming they were the same persons who
were voted for and properly identified,
which of these votes shall be counted?
Cronlns vote should be counted as cast,
and the other two as they are cast, would
be the conclusion I should come to from
these several propositions.
Senator Mitchell presented the objec
tions on behalf ot the Republicans, and
in bis argument said : In Oregon there
was no law authorizing the governor to
certify a minority candidate elected. The
legislature of Oregon might have pro
vided that electors should be appointed
by the governor, the supreme court or
secretary of state, but it did not ; but it
did direct that the people, the qualified
electors, shall, by a piuraVivy ot votes to
b cast in different precincts, choose elec
tors. Gov. Grover, in the matter ol w
i..ii m vcrktacaie, lie tells us, Ignored
tbe state's statutes and followed that ot
congress. If congress had porer to pre
scribe the form of a certificate, and I be
lieve it had, then such certificate is no
part of the manner of appointment, and
ia issuing it. The governor could not
change the appointment as made by the
state and officially determined by the sec.
retary of state as a final and conclusive
act in process of appointment.
Behind this ultimate determination of
the canvassing board neither the gover
nor of the state nor the tribunal, whose
final duty It Is to count the votes tor
president and vice-president, whether it
be the president of the senate, the two
houses of congress or the electoral tri
bunal, can rightfully go. The electoral
tribunal can question this or any other
proceeding down to the boundary line
where they touch the manner of appoint
ments, there the jurisdiction ends, the
decision of tbe state, through its can
vassing officer, being final and conclu
sive. Odell and Cartwright being a ma
jority of tbe electors constituting the
electoral college in Oregon, whose title
Is indisputable, questioned by no one,
not even by tbe governor in his certifi
cate, but by it approved, their certificates
as to the fact that there was a vacancy,
and that such vacancy was filled by them
Is conclusive, not only against Cronin,
but all other persons, the state, the gen
eral government, congress and the ciec
toral tribunal as well. Mr. President J
have faith In this commission, and in the
justice ot its final judgment.
At the'concluslon of Senator Mitchell's
argument it was announced by the Dem
ocratic counsel that they should require
an extension ot their time, to double the
amount, and were even willing to sit un
til late In the evening. The question
uwnvTv. naa not then decided, and
,.tuijt otua, csuaies were brought
In, and Mr. Lawrence was inyited to pro
ceed with his objections.
iue speaker quoted acts ot congress
and the statutes ot Oregon and stated
rr-it i .
Odell and Cartwright came with evl
dence of title which satisfied all provi
l ii - ii .
ions, ue men stated as his nrst propo
sition, and he declared that the whole
controversy might be disposed of in
favor of the Hayes electors by a single
proposition, that If the monstrous posi
tion could be maintained that Cronin was
legally appointed, yet be refused to act,
neglected to attend with Odell and Cart
wrignt, tils place become vacant and
Watts was duly appointed to fill it. The

quorum ; the acts of a quorum are valid
to decide when a vacancy has arisen and
to fill It.

uujj uoauiey tnea addressed th
commission. He claimed that the nri...
cipJee ontrolling this case had already
been decided in the case of Florid ami
Louisiana. Only tuck documents and
papers as if offered uliundt would be com-
potent to be received may be considered
wbM found within tbe envelopes sent ta
tb president of the senate, and the de
cision of tbe returning board, acted upon
by the governor of the state, is final and
conclusive. Hoadley said : My propo
sition Is that the State of Oregon through
her state officers has spoken and the re
sult of that speech is here in the certifi
cates given to Cronin, Odell and Cart
wright ' They are the only legitimate,
lawful evidence sf the act of Oregon In
this matter. I submit that the certifi
ate or list sijned by the governor
or secretary ot the State of Oregon
and delivered to the college of electors
Is final and conclusive evidence. Why
were the governorand secretary required
to sign these Hit? It is because the
chief executive ol the state nnd the can
vassing officer slould unite in declaring
who is elected, and when thus signed
their signatures give it the conclusive
and final evideno which Is required.
Commissioner Ihurtuan Inquired who
by the laws of Or?gon has custody ol the

authorized any suih certificate orexem.
pl.f ."jn as Is p-esented by the sup
potters of certificate No. 1. Mr. Hoad
ley argued that the rctlon throughout
was legal. On what principle ot law
could John W. Watts, who did not hold
this commission from any court of Justice
in this land, have got the title to
which he now lays claim? Cronin held
the title ; Cronlu cast the vote. Would
you have awarded the position to a man
who, the constitution of your country
says, should not hold it on the principle
that the mandate to elect is fulfilled by
tbe election of Cronln. Test it by method
and tell me how sny lawyer can say that
a disqualified candidate can seize the
office by any process known to the law
of our own country out of the bands of
one who holds it it facto. He may have
a judgment that die office is vacant, and
that is the end of the whole thing so far
as he is concerned.
Mr. Hoadley stated that the commis
sion excluded evidence in the Florida and
Louisiana cases because it was without
Judicial power, and said without the ex
ercise of Judicial power you cannot
deprive Tilden and Hendricks ef the one
vote cast for them m Oregon, without the
exercise ot J udicial power you cannot
award it to Hayes and Wheeler.
At the conclusion of Mr. Hoadley's
argument the commission adjourned
until ten to-morrow.
