Message Vetoing the Fitz

Infriofrement on tie Executive
the Senate Settles the Matter by Failing
' to Pass the Bill Over the Presi
1 dent's Veto 27 to 27-
Washington, D. C, July 8.TI10
'resident yesterday returned to the
House without Ids approval the bill for
the relief of Fitz John Portor. The text
l1 the veto message Is as follows:
' To the House of liepiesenUtives:
Kfttr careful consideration of the bill
Hitrtled "Por the relief of Fitz John
porter," 1 herewith return it with my ob
jections, to the House of Congress In
which it originated. Its enuctiug clause
Is in the terms following: "That
J he President be, and he
',3 hereby authorized to nominate,
Said by and w ith the advice and consent
)Mhe Senate, to appoint Fitz John Por
ttr, late a Major-Geueralof United States
Volunteers, and a Urevet Brigadier-Genual
and Colonel In the army, to the posi
tion of Colonel in the army of the United
tiUtes, of the same grade held by him
lit the time of his dismissal from the
iirmy by sentence of court-martial pro
anulgak'd on January 27 th, 1m;:!, etc.,
tc." It is apparent that should this bill
become a law It will create u new oltleo
which can be tilled by the appointment of
cjic particular Individual w hom it speci
fies, and can not be tilled otherwise. Or
!U may be said, with perhaps greater pre
cision of statement, that it will ereate
U new office on condition that the partic
ular person designated sh.ill bj chosen to
Mil it. Such au act, as it seems to me, is
Uther unnecessary and ineffective, or it
(involves an encroachment by the legisla
ture brauch of the Government on the au
thority of thcKxecutive. As Congress has
S10 power under the Constitution to nom
inate and appoint an ollieer, and can nut
lawfully impose on the President the
lluty of nominating and appointing to
Mlice any particular Individual of itsown
Selection this bill, if it can fairly becou
fUrued us requiring the President to
fcnake the nomination, and bv and with
the advice and consent of the Senate,
fclie appointment which it authorizes, is
la manifest violation of the Constitution
Of such bo not its just interpretation it
troust be regarded as a mere enactment of
ftKivlcc and counsel, which lack, in the
EK-ery nature of things, the force of positive
aw, and can serve no useful purpose on
lie statute books. Then: are othercauses
that det-r me from giving this bill the
k auction of my approval. The judgment
me luuii-iuuruiii, ny wmcii more than
twenty years since, General Pit, John
crorier was tried ajid convicted, was n,
juouueed by a tribunal composed of nlno
puoeral officers of distinguished clmrac
her and ability. Its investigation of tlio
puuarges 01 wnicn It found accused gulltv
War...... k.. I. i .
iiiuiuuu ami consfieiiiious,
Mid its llndings and sentence were
ud aue course of Jaw approved bv
Abraham Lincoln, then President of the
,LiriU-d States. Jt.s legal competency, its
rjapisdlction of accused and of the sub
jects of the accusation, the substantial
(regularity of all its proceedings, are mat
ters which have never been" brought in
Question. Its judgment, therefore, is
Kiual and conclusive in iU character. The
Supremo Court of the United States lias
hxcently declared that a court martial
Isucu as this was "Is the organism pro
vided by law, and clothed with
(the duty of administering justice in this
Mass of cases, its judgments, when ap
proved, rest on the same basis and are
r-urrounded by the same considerations
fvhich give conclusiveness to the jud"
nents of other tribunals, iueiudin" as
well the lowest as the highest." It" fol
lows accordingly that when a lawfully
(constituted court-martial has duly de
clared its findings and its sentence, and
lhc same have been duly approved,
tu-ither the President norCongresshasany
liowertosct them aside. The existence
M such power is not openly asserted
?ior, perliups, is it ueees.sarily"luiplied in
itLe provisions of the bill which is before
tme, but when IU enacting clauses are
read in the light of the recitals of its pre
Utubles, it will be seen that it seeks in ef
aoct the practical annulment of the tlnd
pngs and sentence of a competent eourt
bunrtial. A conclusion at variance with
these llndings has been readied after in
(vesUgation by a board of three ollieer
tof the army. This board was not created
in pursuance of any statutory
.authority, and was powerless to compel
the attendance of w itnesses or to pro
nounce a judgment which cou.'d be Jaw
fully enforced. The olllcers who com.
powid it In their report to the Secretary
oi War, dated March 1'.', ls:y, state that
in their opinion "Justice requires
such action as may be necessary to annul
and set aside the tinaings and sentence
of the court-martial in the ease of
.Major-General Fitz John Porter
djrd to restore him to the doki'.
tlous of which their sentence deprived
Uiui, 6uch restoration to take effect from
date of his dismissal from the service."
The provisions of the bill now under
consideration are avowedly bacd on the
:i8Uinptiou that the findings of the court
martial have been discovered to be erro
neous, but it will be borne In mind, that
jhe investigation which is claimed to
have reeuiw in this discovery was
made nmny years after tho event to
wbjcli theo findings related, and
under circumstances th.it nude-it Im

SIakskii.i.ks, July 3. Three deaths
from cholera are reported Ince last
ulght. At least C.Ouo Inhabitants have
tied. Four hundred poor workmen from
Toulon were sent back to that city. The
panic is unquestionably increasing. In
the face of this, lwever. the nhvsielam
and chemists of ih:s city held a
meeting and declared th-j alarm senseless.
The rate of mortality at present, they
aver, is not to exceed that which Is usual
at periods of great heat. They express
the belief that many deaths ntmbulcd to
cholera are really due to other causes.
The muuieipal authorities have decided
to forego the customary celebration

cholera is prevalent disinfected. Some

London, July 3.-A dispatch just re
ceived states that the Chinese Govern
ment In answer to France's demand for
500,000,00 francs of China, as indemnity
for alleged violation of the Tien Tsieu
treaty to Lang San, declines to admit that
there was any violation of said treaty, and
disavows the allegation that the attack
on the French troops by the Chinese gar
rison was an outrage, and claims that tho
garrison was merely doing its duty in
defending tho place, as Lang San did not
come within the scope of the Tien Tslen
treaty as a part of the country to be oc
cupied by French troops.
The Chinese officials contend that ac
cording to that treaty thcevacution of
the frontier towns was conditional only
on the donative treaty being signed and
agreed to, and are reported to line
said, that the Chinese Government
repudiates the Intervention of Captain'
Founder and Me Hung Chang who
signed the Tien Tslen treaty on behalf of
France and China providing for the evac
uation of the frontier towns by Chinese
troops, as it was never understood by his
-Majesty's Ministers that any such agree
ment had been entered into.

supports the as-sestiun that, taken all in all,
Cairo is as good a town to live iu and do
btibiness in as most any of them. She has
lier disadvantages, it is true, but theie is no
city in the world that has not some of these,
though persons traveling through a coun
try that is new to them are too apt to be
taken away with the novelty of what they
see and tail to notice the objectionable
features. Generally, the people of Cairo
have done pretty well in spite of the many
difficulties ngainst which they have hail to
contend; and now that the chief of these
difficulties, danger from high water, is a
thing of the past, '.here may be expected
material improvement in other directions.
