JNO. S. REYNOLDS, Associato Editor.
Thq )gprp ts wer determined to
exprgss their opinion of_ the scandal
of the Electond Cominission. Sena
tors Bogy, Bayardi Thurman and
othkd ,bt avo dole sonmo plain talkin~g,
while tIX6 I~aaieals aro0 making a
poo},.ccenco.
If'soimo pious' Itadiciil, ;Parson
Newman, for instance, would only
offer up t hong of thanksgiving for
the 'divino inspiration vouchsafod
to Judgo ;Bradley in refusing to go
behiusl the bQard, it would be in ac
cordanco with tho eternal fitness of
things
Ir, WVhceler soated twonty
Democrats in tho Louisiaina Legis
latu6o that had been counted out in
1874 by the Returning Board. Does.
his conscienco prick him when ho
accepts'a position emife rred upon
him 'by the same iboard through the
rejoection of ten thousand votes cast
for Mr. 1eydricks ? eI went be.
hind the board iii 1874. Yet., know
ing the tiue 1. ir.wrdreii; of that
board; he thinks it perfectly proper
that. Mr. IlIedrieks should be
denied tOim lriviff;e in 1877.
It, is stated that Guoernor Ilayes,
in his annual message to tho Ohio
Legislatu e In. 1872, recommended
that all elecion boards should con
tai nie ber's of the different partics,
in order that the popular will might
not be subverted by a partisan
board. Does his conscience troublo
him in acceptiig an oflico given him
by an illegally composed board
which threw out ton thousand votes
cast fc his opponent 7
The average Radical leader cares
little for throats of violence. He
locks himself securely within doors,
skulks behind a regiment of Federal
troops, and laughs at the outraged
taxpayers. But a Radical must eat;
and he .dearly loves tho crisp green
backs or the shining silver dollars.
Withhold thesq from him, and politi
cal power is a matter of no conme
quenco. : He would much prefor to
Aee away on the wings of the morn
ing and be at rest.
It is stated, upon what is said to
be the very highest oflicial authori-'
ty, that 1fresidenmt Grant has deter
mined to prosecute "Don Piatt,"
' editor of the Wa4shington) Capitol
for libel, and for seditious writing
indctable under both common and
statute law. District Attorney
Wells ~.as been directed to take the
necessary steps. Don has always
been v'ery sovere in his comments
upon draint, aind his fine sarcasm
has donbtless stung the Presidential
scusibilities. It will be0 a lively
fight, if te matter get into the
courts'. And Don will doubtless
Win.
President Grant thinks that Mr.
Chambelain mu~lst collect his taxes
or abdicito. That the former will b)e
impossible-must be fully understood
by Mr Ch aberlasin. As the retir,.
ing President hasm long bo'on Mr.
Chamberlain's best friend, his advico
should be heeded. .Let the ex-Gdvern-.
or issuo an addrers to the peoplo of
South Carolina, bidding the~m fare
well, and ann ounvcing his ote rmina
tion of r.eturing to Massachuscit s
on thle 4th of March ; and, our word
for it, he Would regain all his lost
popularidy. Iis final levee would
be universally attended ;for all the
citizens of the ttet wonki assemle
to bid him God -speedi. And a safo
conduct wqyld-bo guarantfeed to him
through the~ confmues of South (Caro
lina to the hohpitable regions of
Georgia ot the Old Wrth State
The Doom f Chataberlain.
Pres 4nt Grantym s como out in
plain toi'rsabdnt' the Obamberlain
concer Jp this Shte,. In a vecent
in tervi6Av wit ti9,ori'espondcnt of
the Noew1m T.'rib.p,4, he said:::
"In South Carolina the .c'ontenst
has assyumed e aoh lia6 o thu
whole 4sn; pf ;iJ1)jted Sttes
would baj4eqduateX wenforce the
auth orifofW Go6verri'rr"Coinborlaii
The 1)001)10 of that "Stato resolves
not to resort to vioienoe, but adopt
od a mode of proeelure nic'h iior<
formidablo and cfibotivo thaI . m
armed demonstration. They hav
refused to pay their State taxes to
Governor Chamberlain, and it would
be useless to Toll out their property,
as no on would buy it.
"Unless Governor Chamberlain
can compOl the collection of taxes,
it will be utterly useless for him to
oxpoet to maintain hij. author ity for
any Jolngth of time. This state of
afiairs must inevitably result in the
abaudo31Inmeut of Ill efforts by rov
ernor Chamberlain to unxintairn him
self in the exercisoof the gjuborna
toaril functions of the State of
South Carolina."
The view thus expressed by Pr'es'
dent Grant is a strong one, and it
must bo the view of every sensible
man who looks with an impartial eye
oi the coudition of affairs in South
Carolina. No government, or ie
tended governm ent, can succeed
when the groat body of the people
refuse either to re'ognize its .ogality
or to oir'y its mandates. Stuch is
the position of the Chanberlaini
governinenlt in this State. Foisted,
or a.Ited (ijil t, be fisd (31, upon the
pooplo by a I. "rmnl of Can zIv:ist ras
acting ot si!c or the law, a i by a
preei'Cndfed liislature in positiye
dCeianco of tho judgment of tle
Supreine Court. this govern ment
if it mna:v be so toilod--has no
stre ngth1 whatever. Take away the
Federal bayonet and its la:st and
only stay is gone. These must be
taken aw:y before many day:, and
then the ilthy concern will b; num1
bered with the things that were.
