Where the ... Comes From
Wblle we don't regard tbe chan
ces as imminent tbat Mr. Hayes
will be turned out of the White
Houee, such an event is by uo
■MM impossible. With one mem
bar of the Louisiana Returning
Board already employed at bard
labor ln tho penitentiary, and with
Walls and the others on tbe way tc
keep him company, damning de
velopments are liable to be reported
at any moment. Finding tbat the
President is powerless to protect
him, Wells may find his tongue,
Facts may at any time come out
that would compel the American
Congress, in very self-respect, tc
take action on the greatest pollti
cal crime, unaccompanied by vio
lence, which was ever perpetrated
under the form of a Constltutiona:
Who would have predicted, oue
short year ago, that tbe very men
who mad* Hayes President would,
after a few months, hate him witr
- sTO ititeuaity compared with whict
their antagonism ,to Tilden is i
colorless and dead feeling? Yet
tbat is precisely tbe way the cast
stands to-day. Such men ai
Chandler and Cameron can hardly
contain their tempers when Hayes's
name is mentioned. Senator
Conkling, in a pitched battle, has
brought a Republican Senate to
join him in a terrible rebuke to
theFresident elected by themselves.
Old Ben Butler and old Beu Wade
both express tbe most unmeasured
contempt for Hayes, while Cham
berlain, Kellogg, Packard, and the
Inne line of Radical Republicans
who sympathize with them,
have declared war to the knife,
and Ihe knife to the hilt,
against the fraudulent President.
It now appears quite probable that
Wm. i itt Kellogj, the fraudulent
United States Senator from Louis
iana, will be in the field with his
little revelations. The following
Washington dispatch from the spe
cial correspondent of the New York
.Sun indicates that a new cause for
anxiety exists for Hayes. Con
stant dropping will wear a stone, it
is said, and we suspect that the
pleasure Hayes anticipated from
his unjustly acquired office is
turned to gall by that drift of pub
lic opinion which ceaselessly
busies Itself lv discussiug the infa
mous means by which be became
President. The correspondent
The $20,000 which Wm. Pitt Kel
logg is being pressed to pay to the
Union National Bank of Chicago
was part of tbe money paid aud
agreed to be paid by the visiting
statesmen to secure tbe counting of
the electoral votes of Louisiana for
Hayes. It had to be raised quickly.
They did not dare to telegraph for
it, and they could not draw for it
through a New Orleans bank. The
emergency was a pressing one, and
tbe malls were too slow. It wus
the eleventh hour. Tbe Returning
Board, after rejecting every poll in
various parishes, against which
any evidence could be trumped up,
after throwing out all the parishes
which oould with any colorable
pretext be claimed to be bull-dozed,
I found that there were three Hayes
' electors who lacked between seven
and nine hundred voles of having
a majority over their Democratic
competitors. Something had to be
done immediately. One member
of tbe Relurulug Board refused to
go any further iv this dangerous
business unless more money was
forthcoming. He demanded cash
down as an earnest of the future,
ln this dilemma tbe visi ting states
men went to Kellogg and said they
must have $20,000 forthwith. He
protested tbat be hadn't that much
money. Tbey said he must raise
it, and they would see that he was
reimbursed. He borrowed the
amount from tbe Collector of In
ternal Revenue, and tbe balking
member of tlie Returning Board
was paid $6,000. Then the count
ing out and counting in went on
until the job was done. Johu
Sherman and bis fellow-conspira
tors knew tbat the money came
from (he Collector of Internal Rev
enue, and tbat it was the money of
tbe United States. They knew it
was used to bribe a member vf the
Returning Board. Tbe money was
not repaid to the Collector of In
ternal Revenue until nearly eight
months afterward. He could not
settle his accounts without it, and
demanded it from Kellogg. John
Sherman had not kept his pledge
that it should be reimbursed to
Kellogg. It was his intention to
squeeze it out of Kellogg, who
wanted his seat in the Senate and
oould not afford to let the truth be
known, because it would certainly
destroy his chance of getting into
the Senate. Accordingly, Kellogg
bad to borrow $20,000 of the Union
National Bank of Chicago, and C.
B. Farwell became his surety.
Kellogg got his seat iv the Senate,
but be does not think it is fair tbat
$20,000 of his $30,000 salary for six
years should be eaten up in this
way, while Hayes does not con
tribute one penuy of his $200,003.
To bring this matter to a square
issue, I propose to prove in any
court of justice or before an Inves
tigating committee of either House
of Congress: First, that Kellogg
has repeatedly said that $20,000
was borrowed of the Collector of
Internal Revenue In New Orleans;
second, that he borrowed it at the
request of the visiting statesmen;
third, that the visiting statesmen
promised him it should be made
good; fourth, tbat it .was this mon
ey which secured the counting in
of tbe three Hayes electors, who
were still behind on the 30th of
November; and, fifth, that Kellogg
repeatedly said that if he did not
get his seatiu the Senate he would
raise hell about this $20,000, and if
it wasn't repaid to him, Hayes
would have to get out of the White
OUR good natured Southern
neighbor, the editor of tbo San
Diego News, has lately taken to
copying portions of Herald arti
cles on transcontinental railways.
Below portions of said articles
which we had thought wo had care
fully elaborated, and into which we
supposed we had infused a good
deal of common sense, will appear
such exhaustive and annihilating
criticisms as "this is too thin." We
should dislike to llj to disturb the

in Tom Scott. For liia nonce, to
oblige it, we shall concede that his

deserves so to be. But how would

of railway building whatever as

turns out to bo the correct idea
after all, we shall not have shown
such au astonishing lack of wisdom,
especially uot when we consider
that Scott's projects aim at the ag
grandizement of San Diego and uot
of Los Angeles. While our argu
ments are not dependent for their
respectability on Scott's success or
failure, tho people who have beeu
placing their whole reliance on the
pseudo railway king will find their
arguments and their interests both

Washington, Feb. 27.—Among
tbe thirty-tbreo hundred bills
which have been introduced in the
House of Representatives during
the past four months, oue which
bears tho very inconspicuous title
of "a bill for tlie relief of certaiu
citizens of the United States," rel
ative to a private laud claim, has
to-day been discovered to be noth
ing less than a proposition to revive
tbe Santillan claim, covering the
greater partof thecity of San Fran
cisco. Horace Davis made the dis
covery through the Chairman of
the Private Laud Claims Commit
tee, to whom the bill was referred
when introduced by Representative
O'Neill, of Pennsylvania. The
Chairman of the Committee seems
to be favorably impressed with it
aud when Davis told him it would
undoubtedly be regarded witli
alarm and call forth opposition
from California, he said be would
be glad to receive an expression of
views on tlie subject from the San
Francisco newspapers. The bill
proposes to give the United States
District Court for California power
and jurisdiction to determine iv the
light of alleged uewly discovered ev
idence whether tbo Santillan claim
was a valid grant at the time when
said grant was declared invalid by
the Supreme Court and the value
thereof at that time, and whether
said lands have been disposed of by
the United States; and gives tbe
right of appeal to the Supreme
Court from the decision so author
ized to be made. The grant of this
extraordinary jurisdiction is, bow
ever, made conditional upon a pro
viso that action shall be tlrst taken
by tlie owners of tbe claims as fol
lows: The Trustees of the San Fran
cisco Land Association shall exe
cute aud record in the office of the
County Recorder of the city and
county of San Francisco a deed of
release of all their right, title and
interest of, in and to all lands
known as tbe Mission Dolores, lauds
in and near said city, included
within the alleged grant by Gov.
Pio Pico under the laws of Mexico,
bearing date February lOtb, 1846,
and known as the Bolton claim for
the use and protection of all per
sons lawfully in possession of said
lands ar any part thereof .-reserving,
however, to said trustees tbe right
to apply to tbe Congress of tbe
United States for compensation
therefor. The promoter of the bill
says its purpose is only to lay the
foundation for a claim against the
government and uot to distrustany
property holders. But granting
that tbey have no other purpose in
view, the hill seems open to grave
objections as being against public
policy, opening tbe door to possibly
manufactured records and as being
very loosely drawn. Thus, for
instance, the word "lawfully"
iv the foregoing proviso
is susceptible of various construc
