room at 10 o'clock.
ADDRESS OF STANLEY KATTHEWS.
Mr. llatthewa made au address la op
positioa to the Cronin crtiflate No. 3,
commencing with the denial that they
had asserted In tke Florida rase that the
certificate was final and conclusire, and
aid they had undertaken to draw a line
ot demarkation between tbe act ot the
tat and federal authority which took
the matter op after it had left the state
They also undertook to draw a line be
tween things and proofs, between the
oartlficate and the thins certified, to show
that the certificate was but tbe shadow,
the thinjr certified bcinj? the substance,
and that when the certificate did not
show the thing certified truly it could be
corrected. It was a surprise, he said,
to find that their adrerearlcs had not
only taken their position on the Florida
and Louisiana cases,but had gone beyond
It and accepted the dogma which they
had Improperly ascribed to the side with
which he was identified. lie maintained
that they stood to-day en the ground
they occupied In the beginning and
whlah had bean hallowed by the decision
of this tribunal, yiz.: that a certificate
based on the returns was conclusive cvl
deace of election.
In the Florida and Louisiana cases the
offers to go behind return were menac
ing, and the offers grew stronger and
larger as the certainty was obtained that
they would not be called on to make
them good, and a great deal of patriotic
Indignation was indulged la m sue fired
countenancing of fraud an J wrong. Tbe
certificate of the governor was sought
to be Introduced here as a substitute for
the canvass. It was signed by the secre
tary of state simply as attesting witness
and not as canvasser of votes. That the
expression ot the commission was not es
sential to the discharge of the duties of
the office, he contended was a well-settled
principle ol law. The certificate of the
governor ol Oregon did not conform te
the statutes of the United States or ot
Oregon. Suppose the certificate had
been authorized. It gave the election
to Odell, Cartwright rnd Cronin, a
body ot three persons, to meet,
tonsult, deliberate and vote together
ia tbe college that necessarily con
sisted of three. He contended that one
could not act as a body and that tb mot
of a quorum could only be accepted as
tb ton of tli body. This view ot the
case had been sustained by decisions in tbe
supreme court of Oretron. In regard to
what constituted a vacancy, he con
tended that when the object was to keep
up a bodv to the lull number for the pro-,
tection of the interests of the people,
when it was sought to guard Bgaiast
every possibility of tbe college net being
full, the word "otherwise" should be
construed liberally, and that it was in
tended to cover all vacancies that might
occur. If the governor was a competent j
tribunal to set-aside the election, then'
vacancies existed which the remaining
members were empowered to fill.
Mr. Matthews combated the proposi
tion that the Ineligibility ot Watts made
a non-election, or that the votes cast for
an Ineligible candidate were void. He
also contended that the English decis
ions which declared the candidate who
was eligible but receive the less number
of votes than his ineligible opponent
elected had not been adopted as the
American rule which was that when
such a case occurred neither was entitled
to tbe office. If, however, an eligible
officer was objected to by nobody his offi
cii! acts stood as long as he held office.
In relation to self-execution of the consti
tution he argued that unless there was
legislative provision it could not be exe
cuted. The prohibition of states from
making laws impairing contracts could
never be executed but lor legislation.
Why, It gave judicial power to try al
leged violations of provision.
Mr. Matthews closed with tbe declara
tion that he had appeared not a counsel
for any party, but ia support of a great
constitutional principle regardless of any
popular clamor IbM tnls-Ut be xclud.
For a governor to take upon Uimseii ex
ecutive, Judicial and legislative powers
was to bring about a complication that

MR. EVARTS ADDRESS.
Mr. Evarte commenced his argument
at half-past 1 with a claim that the course
pursued on that side in connection with
this case was consistent with their claims
in the Florida and Louisiana cases. In
those cases the certificate bad been In ac.
cordance with the canvass, and they held
now that the certificate should conform
to the canvass. These two conforming,
the evidence was conclusive. The can
vass, he maintained, was the substance,
the certificate the form. ne charged that
the opposition had changed their claims
with the different cases and for that re-
nad been compelled to change ceuu-1
Therefore unless you hold that the
governor's certificate and its subtraction
by violation cf the governor's duty is
sufficient to suppress the electoral coi-
lees and vote ot the state, you have here
evervthini? von need under the act of
congress, without looking at the certifi
cates which they put In support oi tueir
title. Now we have another certificate
and that contains nothing that contra-
diets the other, and nothing that by it
self can stand on its own Inspection as an
Mr. Evarte then called attention to the
wording of tbe governor's certificate and
contended that it did not comply with
the act of congress, in that he undertook
to insert the word eligible betore the
word elector to cover himself trom con
demnation of open, recognized traud and
falsehood. Instead .ot obeying the con
stitution and laws ot Oregon he has
given a reason for his action to save him
self from absolutely disregarding his
duty. Whatever may have happened to
Cronin by his extrusion, that did not
make him the college, otherwise yoa
would have a strange state ot tacts, that
under the laws ot Oregon
she could have three elec
toral colleges, composed of one
man each who could cast his vote in hi6
own war and by his own authority, but
it you adopt the rule that the majority
constitute the college you put yourself
uuder tbe protection of the principle
which governs all corporative action,
that there can bo but one college, and
that a majority attaches to Itself all tbe
powers ol such college. The law ol Ore
gon itself says they shall fill a vacaacy
in the electoral college by a plurality of
votes. Can you have a plurality of votes
when only cae vote is cast ? Oregon
had by provisions ot tne electoral law ot
the Union, power to provide for failure
ot an election. What was thatf Why
it was when the election tailed to pro
duce the number of electors required.
the majority proceed to remedy that de
fect, and it is only In that ca.se that they
are allowed to substitute their action in
place of the ordinary mode of election.
Hut It does not require them to make a
different mode of filling a vacancy aris
ing from a failure to elect than that
caused by a vacancv arisinsr in any
other manuer. Oregon has settled that
question for Itself. The statutes deter
mine that by oo chance should
the vote of the state be lost.
and they' provide in that way
for the IMinar " of the vacancv in
the electoral college. Now, upon an ex-
ammauuu ox ail tnese ceruncatea, I iiave
been gratified to find that although these
operations up in Oregon were as harmless
as aerpente they were not any wiser than
doves. Nothing has been done there that
defeats the constitution of the Uaited
amies or mat defrauds the state of
Oregon, or that deteate the election oi a
prendeat All that has resulted from
the attempt to perpetrate a consummate
fraud is to exhibit the fraud to public
condemnation, but the satety of the state
Mr. Evarte then took up the certificate
of Odell, Cartwright and Watts, claiming
that every requirement ol the constitu
turn had been complied with. Ha Insisted
that tbe evidence of title rested in this
certificate, and not In the one which had
the governor's signature. The abseuce
of certified lists was through the default
of the governor and secretary of stale,
ana not through any neglect of the
electors- The refusal of these officers to
furnish the lists was a desertion of duty,
and such deertion of doty always had
an object. The cerUficata contain.!
mora. It contained au abstract oi the
votes cast tor presidential electors, as ou
US lh.' f" f Uie "CTry state,,
certificate by s, F. chadwlck. secre
tary U state, that he wa. the custo
dian ot the seal of ttifc stats, and that the
enclosed was a true copy f the abstract,
and bad affixed the great seal to the copy.
Besides there were the minutes of the
college. ' The resignation of Watts was
received and accepted; the act had been
done openly under an uncertain idea that
he might have been disqualified. Watts
did his duty for ho would not put in
peril ono of the votes of the state of
Oregon. 1 The votes had been cast and
the ballots were here. Under the con
stitution act ot 1792 and the laws ot
Oregon these minutes were plenary evi
dence of validity of the net of these eleo
tors. MR. MERRICK'S ARGUMENT.
Mr. Merrick then addressed the com
mission on the Democratic side. He
said that he addressed himself to the tri
bunal believing they would adhere to
their previous decisions, and apply the
same principles to the decision of the
Oregou cas that they did to the Louisi
ana and Floride eases. He must con
sider that the real meaning of their judg
ment la these cases was that the certifi
cate ot the governor was the conclusive
and ultimate act performed by the states,
beyond which they bad no power.
Mr. Merrick argued that the laws of
Louisiana and Florida, in reference to the
ascertainment of the result of the ap
pointment of electors, were similar to
the law of Oregon, and submitted that to
withhold the commission or to withhold
the certificate from the party deemed by
the governor to be Ineligible to the office
was the legitimate performance of a con
stitutional and proper executive trust.
You have told us, said he, that the state
cannot Interfere with an elector whether
he be eligible or ineligible, whether his
election be secared by tair means or loul;
you have told us that It cannot be Inter
fered with except between the time of the
conclusion of the returning board and
the time of his voting. Now, the etato
of Oregon, seeking to perform her duty,
and this much abused executive, seeking
to Drotect that state from the odium of
having wantonly violated tho constitu
tion of the United States, have solemnly
determined that an elector, claiming to
be elected, was not elected, the governor
of Oregon could not have given the cer
tificate to an Ineligible candidate without
violating bii oath, and being guilty of
infraction of the federal constitution.
Mr. Merrick claimed that as Cronin held
the certificate with tlie broad eeal of the
state attached to It he had the muniment
of title to the officer. What had Watts ?
Nothing. The opposing counsel said in
considering the evidence of title possessed
by Watts that be had a certificate from the
secretary of state as to the canvass of tbe
votes. What did this certificate purport
to be? It Is headed, Abstract of votes
cast at the presidential election In Ore
gou, etc. It does not say, Canvass of the
vote to make it appear that abstract and
canvass were synonimous terms. He re
ferred to the statues ot Oregon, which re
auired clerks to make out certain ab
stracts and send them up. These ab
stracts the governor and tho secretary ot
state were required to canvass, and when
they had canvassed these abstracts to
make another paper, which should be a
paper ot record In that office, and which
is not here in this certificate. On the
subject of vacancy the counsel made the
point that uuless tbe office had been once
filled there would be no vacancy, and un
less once filled there could be no resigna
tion. The vacancy alleged to be filled
by these electors was not created by
Cronin's absence but by Watts' resigna
tion. It they had power to fill the va
cancy at all they executed that power by
filling a vacancy created by the resigna
tion ef Watts, and not by the non-action
f Cronin. The speaker concluded in
the following language : I claim that you
adhere to tbe spirit anJ principle of the
decision you have rendered in the case8
of Florida and Louisiana. It is quite ini
material wheter tuy conformed to my
opinion ou that subject of constitution
ality or not ; they have been rendered by
this tribunal, recorded on the journal of
each bouse of congress, passed into the
history of this country and are la opera
tive effect in the process now going on
of determining who shall be the chief
magistrate of this republic. Consistent
adhesion to the solemn conclusions
reached by these great men to whom the
people have committed the settlement of
their rights is essential to the preserva
tion of loyal respect lor authority and
character, and whilst the mitigating
panga of disappointment often secure au
acquiescence In judgment seemingly the
hastiest and the most unjust, but when
these judgments antagonize one another,
and in their very conflict and antago
nism are combined in operative eflect to
accomplish one and the samo result, and
that result is one with which individual
sysmpathies are closely and warmly con
nected unpleasantly, thoughts will stir
within the public mind and angry emo
tions will swell the popular heart. The
Bupreme court of the United States is one
of the Idols ol the people. They have In
their estimate of Its character iu
vested It with a sanctity and dig
nity beyond that ot any other tribu
nal on the face of the earth. They
believe that all other departments of
the government are liablo to dateriora
tion and possible defilement, but they
look to the supreme court as lifted above
tbe current of Impure air that floats upon
tne sunacc or tho earth, and as still
moved by the virtues and speaking with
the wisdom ot the fathers ot the republic.
nacn tnis raltii is destroyed the night
will have come.
At the couclublon ol Mr. Merrick's ar.
guuient the conituission went Into secret
It hi understood that immediately after
the commlsfiiou went into secret session
Mr. Morton made an hour's speech in
favor of counting the three electoral
Votes of Oregon lor Hayes and Wheeler.
Mr. Edmunds, in some incidental re
mark, clearly indicated that he would
vote iu the same direction.
Justice MiUcr then made au elaborate
argument to show that there eras noth
ing in the Florida and Louisiana decis
ions o Uie eoiumisslotj inconsistent with
giving the en Jre tote ci Oregon to tho
aXepubllcan candidates. Messrs. Thur
nan, Edmunds, Strong and Bradley
were not we I and adjournment was
taken at thel' suggestion. It was
ordered by uruuimous vote and had no
political signifcance whatever. It can be
added that there were no indications this
evening of a irenk among other Demo
cratic or licfublican members ot the
commission, aid that there was no vote
or any approach to a vote on tho main

THE MATTER OF BIS BANK ACCOUNT.
' New Yore, feb. 21. Uoy. Tllden has
sent the following communication to
isenator Kernai :
New York, Feb. 21.
To Hon. FrancisKernan, W a'InnirtDn :
A telegram tithe associated press pub
lished this minting states that a har
monious agreement has been brought
about between the senate committee of
which you are i member and the commit
tee ol the house, by which it has been
decided not to po into an examination ot
my bank accomt on one hand or the
accounts ot the hairinan ot the Uepubli
can committee cn the other. I repudiate
any such agreement, and disclaim any
such Immunity protection or benefit
from it. I reject utterly the false imputa
tion that my prvate bank account con
tains anything whatever that needs
te be concealed. Under the pretense
ot lookiag tora rayment in December, a
demand was ruaile for all payments alter
May and all deposits during nine months.
The bank wns repeatedly menaced with
the removal of ltt officers and books to
Washington. A transcript or the entries
of private business, trusts, charities, con
taining everything but what the commit
tee was commissioned to investigate, but
nothing which it was commissioned to
investigate, because nothing ot that sort
existed, has been taken with my knowl
edge to Washington. Of course there is
no item in it relating to anything in
Oregon, for 1 never made a purchase or
knew of an expenditure in relation to the
election in that state or resulting in
controversies or any promise or obliga
tion or negotiation on the subject.
Mr. Ellis, acting president of the bauk,
himself a Republican, some time ago
told the chairman ot the committee and
several ot its members that there is noth
ing in the account capable of furthering
any just object of Investigation. 1 am
also informed that a resolution was
passed to summon me as a witness, but
have received no subpoena. 1 had writ
ten, before tbl r7eirnun appeared, re
questing you to say to the committee
that It would be more agreeable to me
not to visit Washington if the committee
would send a sub-committee, or bald a
session here, but that otherwise I should
attend under the subpoena.
As to Una arrangement now reported.
I have only to say that I cm accept de
corum and decency, but not a fictitious
equivalent lor a mantle of sperecy to
any Doay etse. s. J. jilden.

THE HORRORS AND APPALLlWi ACCIDENTS
Daily transpiring in the use of tlie Oils now old as Illuminator, which are inado lioto
retrolcum, and the want of confidence in the public min i as to tbe re-Main
safety of said Oil", bss induced the Introduction ol
ELAINE US Ml ILLDMIMIL
KLAINEis KrO dejf Fire test and spring water white in color, will not explo lo
while burning In a lamp, nor in any oteer 'way, as It doe not contain any of tbe xtI--elre
compounds so frequently me) with in the ordinary Oils for Illunilnatirj;. A limp
filled with EL.AINK, if npet or accidentally broken, w ill not eiplode or burn. There
Is no position in which you can put alamp filled with rXAINKfi'reoinmonuse.ln w-blc!i
it will explode. ELAINK is certainly the Safest Family Illuminating Oil known, a 'id
can be used in any Coal Oil or Kerosene lamp, without i-hanpe of burner.
