THE COMPI.ACF.Xn' OK HAYES TRIBUTE TO

FOUA DEMOCRATIC SENATE CAPT. EADS
ON HIS JETTIES.
Washington, I). C, July 24, 1S7S. It is
one of the amazing facts of current political
histoi thut Mr. Hayes goes on with com
placency in his work of rewarding men con-
V.ted w'th the countmg of Louisiana and
Florida against Tilden. The list of favored
rascals was long enough lx-fore the Potter
committee en'arged our knowledge of the"
names and acts, but it grows with our in
creasing Knowledge. This is, perhaps, the
most remarkable instance ever known of
adheience v. 'th "amiable stublsirness" to a
plan of "mu service reform." Kellogg
who had no standing at the White House
until the Potter committee commenced
shov up the 'isido of Louisiana jw'ilics
now controls the patronage of the State
The dismissal of government clerks hero
who refuse to give money for Republican
campaign purposes has commenced. There
is unlxtundi.-d rejoicing among the friends of
Dan Voorhccs over the apparent certaiutv
J I. . 1 . .1 It
ins eiec.on to tno senate lor a six
jvars teim. This distinguished man holds
to ideas accepted by Democrats nil
orr the country, and his eloquence, his HI:
erlity, and his entire honesty, will make
hi a valuable member of the senate
Something of the warm spirit of such men is
wanted to temper the chilly atmosphere
that too often fills the senate. A very able
aid eloquent lawyer, he has made many
Vrtunes and is poor. lie has oftencr been
lifard at the bar in defence of an outcst
tl:m as the champion of rich an.) soulless
corporations. There is the same difference
bftween him and the typical senator Ed
nunds, for instance as between the luxu-
rant foliage of a southern summer and tho
ice-covered rocks of Labrador in mid-win
r. There is room in the frigid senate for
nore like him forlliron Bradbury or J. C.
Xadigan, of Maine, fur Wade Hampton, of
S)tith Carolina, for Randall, of Pennsylva
nia tor fayicr, ot Ohio, or lor a score of
other genial and able gentlemen in place
of the stitf figures that now stand in too
njtny places in the upper hduse.
There is a proposition to elect Henry M.
Watterson, of the Louisville Courier-Journal,
to an important office when the Senate shall
be re-orgauized in March next. There
ought to be great caution in selecting all
otHcers for that regenerated I tody. No ono
should be put in a place of real or imag
ined inhVienco who represents or is believed
to represent or assumes to represent a fac
tion of the Democratic party. Quarrels
which originated in 1W70, or which grew
out of the presidential election iu that year
ought to be put out of sight. Mr. Tilden,
Mr. Hendricks, Mr. Thurman, Mr. Randall,
Mr. Gordon or any other man or the friends
of uny of them, ought not to be allowed to
interfere in any way with a popular reor
ganization of the Senate. That reorgani
zation, and tho conduct of officers of tho
House may have much to do with our pros
pects in 1880. Wo should not, so far
ahead of tho election, give prominence to
tho pronounced friends of any candidate.
When Capt. Eads can uso tho following
language in relation to his improvement of
tho Mississippi river ho writes himself
down as a great benefactor of those wlio
will hereafter occupy that future seat of
empire tho Mississippi valley:
'The jetty channel is now almost as good
as the entrance to tho New York harbor.
Larger ship and steamer visit tho jMtrt of
New Orleans than ever before Ocean

hist but one i' ths sit In r of tho sub-committee,
wan prolific 't testimony of a most
uiteresung character. Judge Win. R.
Whittakcr, of tho superior cr,minal court,
Was tlio first w .(.less, and tes.ified : A'u an
expert of long experience in the matte' of
hand-it i Y lg; was show j the second set of
the Louisianaelectoral returns; exhibit four.
pa,.s one and two, ire tho duplicates of the
orig'nals; am positive that tho name of L.
A. Sheldon was v.Iiten before that of I'e
ter Joseph, in both pages in part one, and
on tho second pa',-e of part two, but
Joseph's name was ll-st on page one, part
two.,,! tils is without doubt; have exancned
the papers ende- a microscope; was showj
the letter of Thos. S. Kelly to Hon. Clifkson
Potter, also t .e vouchers of the same on file
in the auditor's office; said these a'o all
without doubt 'n the same handvt iting. J.
Douglas testified : Have been a resident of
Xew Orleans nearly thir.y years, am an en
graver and expert in handwriting, testified
the same as the preceding witness, and with
him said the statements admitted no doubt.
On motion of Gov. Cox, it was rejolw-d to
take a recess in Mine to take the tia'n to
morrow, Thursday, to meet subiect to the
call of the chairman. Gov. Cox tLcn asked
to be allowed one hour to i itioduce testi
mony. Agreed to.
Morris Marks to Gov. Cox Came to Xew
Orleans Decemlier 24, I8i0; remained till
the 2nd or 3d of January. 18ii: J. E. An
derson prepared in Waslrnirton a s.'uto.
ment of the Sherman interview in mv nrcs-
ence;on the Sunday following the inter
view ho came to my room and wanted mo
to sign; I refused; the statement was read,
(same as published.)
H. O. May I live at Donaldsonville: am
the parish judge; Mr. Marks and I c-me to
Xew Orleans I, vo or three tlavs before Ar-
rieux was kil'ed; Arrieux was murdered the
evening of December 2i. 1870; I went
Lack in the morninsr of the 2th of Decem
ber; think Land. started for New Orleans
on January 1. 1877, and Marks got back to
Donalilsonville, I think, the next day.
Thomas W. Noland Came to Louisiana
from MassachuseliS 'n 1801 : ' t 1N(1 was
secretary of the Lou'siana Levee company;
mic-nnrm .u v iiineui anu Bteeiu: then
chief, enrolling clerk of the state senate;
came to iNew Orleans tnun parish Iber.'lle
two or three days after tho election of
Senator Allain; came to New Orleans to
get tickets printed; tickets reached the par
ish the night before election; rive elector's
names were left off; asked Allain alxmt it;
sa'd it was only necessar' to have the
elector at large and one for that district on
the ticket; Republican leaders here, Kel
logg, Packard, Campbell and Dibble, said
that Allain's damned rascal'ty in lea 'ng off
the nanus would lose tl e state M the Re
publicans and make it necessary to throw
out Democratic pol's in order to offset this
error; the general expression among the
leaders was that the state went
Democratic; was asked by J. P. Harris
E. L. Welx-r, Mr. Lynn and Marshal
Packard to go to the custom house and as
sist in the preparation of affidavits; think
this was before the returning lsuirdmet;
kept up this work until about the time re
turning board adjourned ; affidavits were
prepared in the custom house; generally
looked up to J. P. Harris as the man in
charge of their preparation: I prepared a
large number of original affidavit.; mv in
structions wero to get nil I could for the Re
publican side, and make it asstromr as pos
sible; instructions were from .T. V. Harris:
Hugh J. Campbell and H. C. Dibble asked
the wiuiess if he knew alxmt certain things;
ho would say, '"Yes, I heard something
aoout mat;' then they wouli nut m an affi
davit, and instead of saying the witness
heard, would say he knew; my idea is
that it was to make it appear that the
witness was testifvinir from personal
knowledge; I found very few did
know from their own Personal know-Iedm.
and tho form chos;n was to make
it as strong as possible for tho Republican
party, and I think all did the same: knew
Eugene Hale, Stoughton and Garfield; saw
them in the rooms where the work was be
ing done; they took a irreat interest: think
they were getting copies of affidavits; heard
mem trrqucntly ask tor them; saw Garfield
nearly every morning; ho would look over
tho affidavits as they wero lieimr taken: I
think Stoughton was in the surveyor gener
al's office, suiiervisina the Jted river parishes
generally; three or four witnesses wero
sworn; tit tho time, I never read over any af
fidavit which I made; don't remember Wol
lley reading over any affidavits, nor anv ono
else; can't say that all witnesses 'wero
sworn; when witness stated iin-tliiii.r us
hearsay was not informed that it'iumeared
as personal knowledge; as far as these, I
prepared, wero concerned, E. L.
Weber read to one witness his affidavit
omitting parts making positivo statements,
and ho then signed; witnesses coming iu
were accompanied by prominent Republic
ans, who were posted as to tho points de
sired. All these statements as to the man
ner of preparing affidavits imply to all oth
ers before the election. Republican lead
ers after the election went to make a case
before tho rcturnim Ismrd when thev
ii n I tho visiting statesmen weie comim;,
and President Grant was going to sustain
them and uphold tho Packard government
was a fact known by me from intercourse.
That tho Republican leaders thmiirht tho
state had gone Democratic was the general
impression. They determined to throw out
enough Democratic hiIIs to reverse tho re
sult, and givo the state to the Republicans.
Mr. J. P. IlarrUi and Judge II, J. Campbell
NEW SERIESNO. 72
said tho object of the work was to ovci throw
tho Democratic majority and give tho state
t) tho Republicans. Ia one case, that of
Vresinski, I put down what E. L. Welier
said; had little or noth'ng to do with)

the summer of 1870; was a Republican;
b.:lo,p;ed to the Sago Hill club, all negroes;
alsiut twenty members; existed about two
weeks; tho object of the club was to kill
some whltj tol'ts; members of the club

Judge H. J". Kennard, of New Orleans,
was sworn: Has a summer residence iu
tho parish of West Feliciana; prior to 1870
tho political dMnon was strictly on tho
color line; wo then made a strong and earn
est appeal to induct negroes to go with us,
mid with much success; we were especially
anxious to avoid the charge of intimidation;
impressed it on negroes that thev could
vote as they chose, but we used all power
of argument and persuasion to induce them
to vote the Democratic ticket; D. A. Welter
told me the election was free, fair and
peaceable; my impression is that the Re
publicans wero organized all over tho par
ish; nearly a l tho negroes on mv place
voted the Republican ticket; think the reg
ulators antedated the campaign and origin
ated from necessity and for the puqiose of
suppressing the stealing of cotton; don't
think they had anything to do with poli
tics; the same men who were most active
in organizing were, when they, like all un
law ,'ul liodies, became unruly, most active
'n breaking up the organization.
