"When Mrs. I 'ayes took charge of
the I'refcidential mansion it was her
alded abroad that there would be no
more drinking of wine at the Presi
dential dinners. A temperance organ
ization was named for her. At its
lat meeting, resolutions were juvssed
.changing the name of the "Mr.
Hayes Temperance .Society," because
of the fact that she had proved to be
a fraud, and drank vine. Mrs. II.
was the cause of her husband taking
the Presidency, which did not belong
to him, and we have always regarded
iicr with less respect than the weak
minded Rutherford. They are both
frauds, but she is the greatest.
The full text of Jmhre McLin's con
fession ot fraud in the Florida elector
al count, is printed lo-d;iy on our first
page. It is nothing more than what
we all" believed, but the confession re
moves the matter from belief to posi
tive knowledge. Judge Mr-Lin was
one of the ex-oiricio members of the
Florida Returning Honrd, and his
confession leaves nothing whatever
for the conspirators sit Washington to
do but to hang their heads in shame
and acknowledge that the Presidency
was stolen from the people. It is now
no longer a question of debate it is
now one of the historical facts. Hayes
pent ox-Gov. Noyes, his personal
friend, of Ohio, to Florida, ostensibly
to "see a fair count,'' -but really to
steal the electoral vote of the Slate for
him. As Noyes left for Florida, he
told it to everybody that Hayes had
paid tohim, on parting that '"ho did
not want the Presidency jf he was not
elected." Hayes w;i applauded for
this sentiment, by tho-ie who did not
know that he believed with Talley
rand words are "given for the pur
pose of concealing ideas." Noyes
caused McLin and oilier poor carpet
baggers to steal the vote of the Stale,
and perjure their own souls. He
got the mission to France, for his
work, and Mr. McLin was appointed
to an office, but the Senate-refused to
confirm. McLin tried to get Hayes to
!end his name in again, but he refus
ed, and then MiiLin told him that he
had stolen the State of Florida for
ldm. Hayes grew indignant, and
cent JIcLin away. The fact is Hayes
has known all along that the Presi
dency was stolen lor him. If he were
the noble man his admirers claim him
to be, he would not remain one hour
in his present false position. Would
any of our past Presidents hesitate a
minute ulnait abdii-ating ? Would
"Washington or Andrew Jackson? No,
not a second !
Senator Colliding thinks Hayes has
known all along of the fact that the
Presidency was stolen for him, and he
lielieves Rutherford is as guilty as they
and as corrupt. No matter as to that.
If he does not now abdicate, he can
not now receive the benefit of the
doubt. The l..idi-;ils want him to re
sign in order that Wheeler can occu
py his phice. Senator 'onkling did
not belong to lie company that put
Hayes in, but he had it in his power
to keep him out, and he cowardly re
fused to do it. The IJepublicaii lead
ers in the North are guiltier than the
jKKr carpetbaggers of t!w Returning

A HINISTEEIAii FEAUD.
Bev. S. J. West, alias Bcstwlei of Canada.
From the Chattanooga Dispatch.
Aliout three weeks ago tnere came
to this city, on the recommendation
of Rev. W . II. Wallace, pastor of the
Baptist church at Columbia, Tenn., a
man who gave his name as liev. S.
J. West, a Baptist minister from To
ronto, Canada. This West had Wen
holding a revival meeting at Colum
bia, Tenn., where over fifty had pro
fessed conversion under his preaching.
He came to assist Rev. J. M. Phillips,
pastor of the Raptist church in this
city, in a meeting which he was con
ducting. He preached a number of
very able sermons, and filled the house
of worship with earnest listeners.
Suspicion was aroused that West
was a fraud, and some thought he was
the scamp Rowland, to whom refer
ence has heretofore been made in these
columns. He was asked for his cre
dentials, but he h.'id none to show.
He said he was ordained in Darling
ton, Canada, and was the pastor of
the church there for two years. He
could give the name of no person in
Canada or the United States that
would vouch for his being a Raptist
minister in good standing. At his
own request lie was permitted to go
to Louisville, Ky., where he said
lie could find a man that would
vouch for him in the presence, and to
the satisfaction of, the Rev. J. P.
Boyce, D. D., President of the South
ern Baptist Theological Seminary and
return to the city by the following
A telegram was sent to Dr. Castle,
of Toronto, who replied: "No Bap
tist minister named West known to
me." Another was sent to Dr. Mil
lard, of Toronto, but then in Atlanta
at the Sunday School Convention,
and he replied: "Don't know West;
neither does Dr. Potts, of Toronto,
who is now here, nor any Canadian in
A letter was written Rev.1 W. Muir,
editor of the Canadian Baptist, and
a full description sent of West. Dr.
Muir replied, saying: "The real name
of West is Bontwick; that he is a
fraud; thathe told them he was pastor
of a Baptist church in St. Louis, Mo.,
which they found to be false upon
wi itirfg to that city. These statement
were made at Stoull'ville, ami a photo
graph of West is in the bands of the
church here, which was taken in this
very town of Stouffville.
A letter was written Rev. J. II. Cas
tle, D. D., pastor of Jarvis Street
Baptist Church, Toronto, who replied,
after laying the letter received from
here before a meeting of ministers and
laymen from different ioints of the
Province of Ontario, as follows:
"Not one of them knew any such
Baptist minister as S. J. West." Dr.
fiistle further states that the descrip
tion sent perfectly applies to a man
named Bosiwiek, and repeats the facts
given by Dr. Muir, as well as that this
Jsostwick was drunk last summer on
a f-teamboat on Lake Ontario and ol
tained money which he never re
turned. Said Bostwiok claimed to
have traveled in Mexico and the West
Indies. This tallied w ith West's sto
ry here, that he spent the winter of
l!s7"-i) in Cuba and of 1876-7 in Mexi
co. Dr. Castle also stated that "There
is no Baptist church in Darlington and
never has been. No Baptist minis
ter was ever ord;uued at Darlington."
A letter written at est s suggestion.
to Rev, J. L. Caldwell, pastor Baptist
church, Darlington, Canrda, was re
turned by the postmaster with this en
dorsement: "No Baptist church in
Darlington." These facts prove West
guilty of the most barefaced decep
tion anu laiscnood.

He could show no letters or pajers te-

him every opportunity to clear him

Crime and Confession.
Vessels that hold the secrets of crime
arc very apt to become leaky. This is
in the nature of things. The human
vessels that held the secrets of the
electoral frauds which put Mr. Haves

rule. I hey have been growing leaky,
They teak very badly. They are 'let

pretty well understood lieforc, but
most of the information came from
different sources. Now the lips of the
guilty are unsealed, and the great
crime against the nation stands con
fe.-scd before the world.
Yet w-e continue to hear it said that
Mr. Haves is firm in his seat and can
not be remove!. A nrm worthy of
the office, after it was once clearly es
tablished tiiat he Isad been elevated
to it only by fraud, would not need
to le removed. He would remove
himself, lie would resign. Imagine

who decided the ejection confessing
that they had practiced cheats which
determined the result! "Would either

If, however, a man has no tense of

THE TEXAS AND PACIFIC EAILEOAD.
Argument cf Got. Brown, Vie s-Presi dent
of ths Scad, Before the House Judi
Washington, April 18. Gov. .Tuo.
C. Brown, Vice-President of the Tex
as and Pacific Railway Company, ap
peared before the Jndiciary Commit
tee of the House yesterday in defense
of that company's right to mortgage
its property Fort Worth and El Paso,
as an indemnity to the Government
for its proposed aid in securing the
completion of the road through to the
Pacific. Mr. Campbell, attorney for a
French holder of the bonds of the
Memphis, F1 Paso and Pacific Rail
road Company, had alleged that the
charter of that company is still unim
paired, and covers the line from Forth
Worth to El Paso, as well as a consid
erable portion of that already con
structed. He further alleged that the
foreclosure proceedings against that
road were fraudulent, and that any
extension of the Texas Pacific bej-ond
Fort Worth must lie made under the
charter of the Memphis and El Paso
Company. Gov. Brown produced leg
islative records to show that the Texas
and Pacific franchises were derived
directly from the State of Texas, and
that the Texas and Pacific acquired
full and complete title and right to
construct, by purchasing the property
and franchises of the Southern Pacific
Railroad Company, a corporation crea
ted by the State of Texas four years
before the Memphis and El Paso was
acquired. This purchase vas author
ized by the Texas Legislature, and
subsequently confirmed. The Texas
and Pacific also purchased the fran
chise of the Southern 'Transcontinen
tal, another Texas corporation, which
authorized them to build a road west
from Texarkana to El Paso. He read
from the reconf to prove that subse
quent to these purchases the Texas
Legislature, by its act of May, 1875,
confirmed this purchase and transfer
of franchises, and directly authorized
the Texas and Pacific to main the road
now in operation, and construct the
line from Fort Worth to El Paso.
Under this act, the company built 42A
miles of road, which was accepted by
the State government, and land 'cer
tificates issued in accordance with the
act of the Legislature, lie read from
the fourth annual report of the Texas
and Pacific, givingj a full account of
the property acquired, and showing
that the company had made a pur
chase from the Memphis and El Paso
to remove any doubt about its title to
the sixteen-mile reservation (not its
land grant), which the Legislature had
declared forfeited to the Memphis and
El Paso, and had granted to the Tex
as and Pacific. The Supreme .Court
of the United States, however, had
decided the claim to this reservation
by the Memphis and El Paso to be
valid. He claims, further, that the
Texas and Pacific paid totlie Memphis
and El Paso the full value of the prop-
ferty acquired from that company; fur
ther, that the Texas and Pacific de
rived no real advantage from the trans
chise of tne Memphis and Kl Paso.
Gov. Brown charged that theoening
of these old matters, already settled,
was merely to injure the Texas and
Pacific, and delay action on the pend
ing bill, and that such delay could not
be to the interest of Mr. Campbell's
The Greit Argument fir Repudiation
"Shrink your claims, as the value of
property shrinks' is the answer ot
the called Legislature of Tennessee to
the holders" of our bonds. The argu
ment to justify -tiie demand is that the
money power held by the bondholding
class controlled Congress, and caused
the enactment of laws wliich ruinous
ly affected the value of all kinds of
proiK-rty and enhanced the value of
money; so that money is worth twice
as much property now as it was le
fore the passage of the acts complained
of. By an illustration, we may see
lKith the premise and the deduction of
the argument. Ten years ago A
promised to pay B a sum of money,
lor value received. B, by his own
act, or through tn agent, or a -tool,
(Congress,) injures A so it is impossi
ble for hint to pay his debt. Now, if
it le proven that in malice prepense
B did so injure A, ( the premise, ) then
it follows, by that injurious act, lie ab
solved A from his obligation to'pay,
(the deduction.) But if B only cripples
A so he can pay but half the debt, then
A owes him but half. Boiled down,
it can by no possibility be more than
an argument to justify all the States,
and all the people in all the States, in
repudiating the national debt, all of it;
or a per cent, of it. Either this argu
ment impeaches the general govern
ment, and charges ou it conspiracy
with its creditors to ruin its tax-payers,
(whose agent it is, ) or it must
reckon Congress, the President and
Supreme Court as impotent and irre
sponsible imbeciles in the power of the
holders of U. S. Bonds. The allega
tion is not proven that the United
States bondholders and Congress were
in collusion to shrink the value of all
kinds of property but money and Uni
ted States bonds, by the obnoxious
acts. Admit the premise, still the
fact remain that those acts are valid;
unless it be proven they were enacted
by a government neither dr. faeto nor
dejure. Disrespect to valid law
smacks of rel'llion.
(irant that the argument is no soph
ism, how does it justify Tennessee in
repudiating her bonds? Before she
can claim absolution wholly or in part
from her debts, she must prove that it
was her creditors Tonif ssec bond
holders who forced Congress to pass
the pernicious acts, by tiicir immense
and irresistible money power, with
the view to bankrupt her citizens.
What ridiculous positions some men
are willing to assume to secure office?
It were just is easy for other States to
say, our property values have depre
ciated too, under theoperation of laws
of Congress, and if on account of such
depreciation from these causes Tennes
see is justifiable m repudiating her
debts, we will not pay ours. The Leg
islature ot lennessce lias, ny its own
acts depreciated the value of Tennes
see iHuidholders' property, and propo
scs to take advantage ot the wrong it
has done the creditors of the State. It
has violated the very principle which
it charges unsuccessfully her creditors

The "Will of the People Murdered-
Such an outrageous murder .of tne

SHE WWLIN'T TAKE 'A SAKE.
The Foolish Freaz of a TJ. 'S. Senator's
Vash. SpeclAi to Cincinnati Enquirer.
The gossips are somewhat disturbed
over an episode in highjife.' Senator
Hipple-Mitchelf, of? Oregon, has a
daughter fifteen years of age, but for
all that with the development of bust
and figure of more mature years. For
some time a beardless youth named
Handy, a Clerk in the Treasury De
partment, has been playing spooney to
her, and on Saturday night last he
dared her to marry him. The young
Miss was not be thus daunted. So she
went with'her deaf Alplijeus to a Cath
olic Priesl, and the twtun were made
tne. Then they went to Baltimore,,
saw the sights and remained all night.
Yesterday the sheepish pair returned
home, the you"ng wife taking her liege
lord to the Senatorial domicile. Then
she acquainted -her pa with the facts
of the adveYiture, whereupon he issued
his ukase, which was to either give up
her home forthwith or her husband.
In a twinkling she made up her mind,
and concluded she wonM remain with
her pa. and ma, and let her young
Handy Andy go. Senator Mitchell
is exceedingly enraged over his daugh
ter's indiscretion, a,nd threatens to
bring suit against the priest who per
formed the ceremony.

It is clear to all who have eyes to

ed. A Fraud and an Outrage
From the Paternon Guardian.
Here now is presented legal proof
which no decent tribunal on earth
could dispute, that Samuel J. Tilden
was elected President of the United
States. The States whose votes have
been nullified might justly refuse to
recognize a Government which is a
fraud and an outrage.
Only Anderson's loutlo.
New Orleans Democrat.
Hayes is thr- most pitiable and hyp
ocritical of men. lie fancies he can
deceive the public; but we notify him
that it is well known here that Geo.
L. Smith is just as much Tom Ander
son as King was. Iet him go ahead,
however; and make hi.s appointment;

Erring Erothor Eey has never Bells vei
that Eaycs was Elected.
Washington, April 23th. Judge
Key showed perfect readiness to profit
by the fraud M'hich he admits. In an
interview he laid down this creed:
"I have always believed," he said,
"that Florida and Louisiana were
counted for Hayes wrongfully, and
that the electoral votes of both States
should properly have been counted for
Tilden. 1 worked strenuously for
Tilden, both before and after the elec
tion, and, indeed, made a speech in
the Senate during the electoral de
bate, in which I argued as strongly as
I knew how that Florida and Ijouisi
ana belonged to Tilden. It was after
that that Mr. Hayes paid me the ex-
traordiuariV cnpliment of inviting
me into his Cabinet. 1 went into the
Cabinet a Democrat, believing that
Tilden was elected, and my views on
that subject ye not yet changed. I
iK-lieve MftIJs vs, however, to be an
honest maiL 1 know that he honest
ly thinks that he was elected, and,
whatever m-v have been the frauds
practised in The States above named,
1 have good- reasons for knowing that
Mr. Haves was no nartv to them.
Therefore, no matter what may lie
develoed hereafter, it shail not influ
ence ,my action. 1 shall remain m
the Cabinet so long as .Air. Hayes js
pleftsed to have me there."
What the Florida Confessions
From the JCewark Journal.
There is just one thing these confes-
sions trom trie rloriila rl)lers of the
nation have accomplished. They
proved to the American people that
Hayes is a fraud through and through,
and that lie deserves to wear lor all
time in American history the brand
stamped upon his brow by Charles
Francis AUa'nis on March 4, 1S77, the
day on which his crime and the crime
He knew every move that was being
taken in the Florida aud Ixniisiana
cases. He was particeps criminis in
all the monstrous frauds and villian-
ies. HekDewthat he was defeated
and that he could Ik? counted in by a
crime no less great than the highway
robbery ol iorty odd millions ot peo
ple. Yet, knowing this, lie aided and
abetted the criminals, and finally took
from their hands, dripping with infa
my, the American Chief Magistracy,
tuus proving mat lie is mueea
"A cutpurse of the Eraplreand the rule.

And put it in his pecket !"
Tho Eeocher Cass A licit Sure Witness.
l lie testimony ot .Mrs. niton mav
certainly be disputed, and it may.
even to a considerable degree, lie set
aside, because she has repeatedly con
tradicted herself: but there is one wit
ness whose evidence must be ttikeu as
final. Indeed, this evidence is only
strengthened by the fact that this
witness lias beforehand made various
contradictory anil inexplicable state
ments on this very subject. This wit
ness is .Henry Ward needier himself.
In a conversation with a corresion
deiitufrtrv At-trst j:tfniraMr. Peeclier
makes use of the following language
"The new statement of Mrs. Tilden
is m the face of her repeated denials
ror years. Again, again, auu. ag&m

I remember well when it was bruited
around that such a charge of intimacy
was to be made against me. At that
time 1 went to Jier and asked what it
meant, whether it tens true that she

Can any other testimony be required
after this? Here is a man accused of
adultery with a married woman, aud

declanttiun of i'uo woman herself. He

When an innocent man thus accused
meets the woman with whom he is
accused and from whom the accusa
tion is said to have eniimaied, w'M'uid

hand, would not a ?iii.fv 711. in iiii(loi
such circumstances, say, "Klizabetji,
in 41 iijio -inaiypu nsive raauii a con
fesjloa o 'your husband'.' Is it true
that yoj have acknowledged to him
the common guilt of you, his wife,
and of me, his bosom friend?"
Only - a guilty man cpiiM use 'the
word Confession under such cm ronm -wances.
Henry Ward Ik'echer is a
guilty man. He proves it himself,
and his earlier denials and his oaths
only confirm the effect of this crush
ing testimony which has thus ifncou
sciously fallen from his own lips!
