JNO, M. RXYNOLDB. AMBOCIATH EDITOR.
GOVERNORt IIAMPTON has been inter
viewed by the Register reporter. Ie
stands by - resumption and hard
money, thinks frauds in election
shouild be punished, denies that the
Radicals were intimidated, and hopes
that the Teller committee will tell the
truth, and not make a partisan and
garbled report. He thinks of visiting
Florida for a few weeks, and will
resume his office for a few days to
perform some unfinished duties before
finally turning the executive ofice
over to Governor Simpson.
Tu 19EASON THAT Charles Nord
hoff's Washington specials to the New
York 1lrald are so generally report
e4 alises from two causes: first, that
the Herald is about the only leading
paper that endeavors to get the truth
free from partisan bias; and secondly,
that it values Mr. Nordhoff's services
in discovering the truth at the sun of
ten thou4and dollars a year. Any
body who lo paid ten thousand a year
by the Herald is worth quoting. The
independence and impartiality of tile
Herald wero never more splendidly
manifested, nor more liberally re
warded than in the days of 1876, and
since then its reports have always
received great attention,
A CouRESPONDENT says that Gover
nor Iendricks is in Washington for
the purpose of effecting a reconcilia
tion between the Eastern and Western
wings of the Democracy oil the money
question. It is intimated tlat as the
East refuses to go to Indiana, Indiana
will be willing to accept resumption
on condition that greenbacks shall not
continue to be legal tenders. The
Democrats always opposed the legal
tender not, and its constitutionality
was only confirmed by the Supreme
Court on the ground that it was a
military necessity. Unity in the
Democratic ranks is of the greatest
importance, and under present lights
it is better for all elements to combine
on hard money. Let the Western
Mahomet oome to tile mountain.
TiE Register of Saturday desires
to have an end put to the squabbles of
Hayes and Conkling over tile New
York appointments, viewing it as
merely a personal Issue that threatens
to consume the time 'of the Senate.
We differ with our contemporary.
This contest embroils tile whole Re
publican piarty, and palrticularly the
Rep)ublicans of New York, and the
longer it goes on tile better for the
Democrats. Indeed, il view of tile
dlisgraceful Kilkenny cat fighlt between
Tammany and Tilden, Republican
discontent in New York is badly
needed to save thlat State to us5 ini
1880. The Democratic Senators
should support tile app)ointmenlts, not
that they love Hayes more, but
Conkling less. It is tile p)olicy al
* ~ ways to hlelp tile weaker faction of the
* common enemy.
Colorado hlas elected N. G. Hilli,
the p)resident of a large smelting furi
nlace, to succeed Chaflfee ill the United
States Senate. lie Is a Republican,
but, not much of a politician.
Connecticut has elected Platt, Re
publican, to succeed Barnum, Demo
crat. Hawley was tile most promi
nlent candidate, buit the eleents comn
billed against him. P. T. Barnum,
the circus man, received tnvotes o
the first ballot.
Missouri elects George G. Vest for
the long term, lie was Confederate
Senator during the war, and is said to
be a man of great eloquence. For the
short term, made vacanlt by the deathl
H ~ of Biogy, and filled temporarily by
Armstrong, and which expires on tile
fld of March, Gen. James Shlields was
elected. Tihe meanling of this political
move is not apparent, Imless it be
adevice to give tihe general, whol
nesit, some money, anId to offset
the election of an ox-rebel for the long
term. General Shields Is tihe only

The Signification of "Ballot."
Last year the whiole judiciary of
South Carolina hn rrbigyss
penlded on tile meanimng of tile word'
"ballot," and theo Supreme Court
itself gave divided opinions on this
- mooted point. Justice Willard held
that tile term "joint ballot" thay be
used inm a goneral sense, and he
h1i"iitly" conflicting provisions of
the Constitution. Judges laskell
and MIolver held that a ballot means
a'i4ce of.iaper, anld that a v*i a' voce
vote wher6 a ballot, CYCn If it be a
"joint ballot," is provided for, is in
admissible. . Under this ruling the old
judges, except Kershaw, were decapi
tated. At the timo Tu: NEws AND
i-:nAm) concurred with Justice
Willard. Ii the past few days we
have seen a striking inlstance of the
careless use of the word by legrislative
bodies, going to show t.iat whatever
Worcester or Webster may say,
modern Solons are not strict con
structionists of the dictionary. It
appears in the rules of the Senatorial
caucus of the Missouri Democrats.
The same legislators who make the
rules of the caucus also make the -laws,
and would use the word ballot in the
sane sense in both instances. The ma
jority of the committee on rules report
ed the following, among others:
"As called, each member shall rise,
and shall declare his vote viva voce
for one of the candidates in nominhia
tion for United States Senator, anld
the votes shall be recorded by the
Secretary, an1id two tellers shall he
appointed by the President and the
result of the ballot shall be ainounced
by the President, &c."
The minority set of rules, while
diflfriug in other respects, made the
same use of the word "ballot." It
"The manner of voting shall be
viva vore, and the response to the call
of the niiame shall be delivered by the
members standing. No nomination
shall be in order after the balloting
has begun, and after the tenth ballot
tihe aididate receiving the lowest
number of' votes shall be dropped, and
so on, on each suceeeding ballot, until
a nomination is made."
After a heated debate the majority
report was adopted, but the reporter
continues, "amended, however, by
providing that no new nominces be
made after the tenth ballot. The
caucus then adjourned till to-mnorrow
evening, when it will proceed to bal
lot for nominces."
We perceive by thi.4, that, the poo
plo of Missouri, legislators, reporters
Senatorial aspirants and all, have
never hcard -of the South Caroliia
decisioi. It is fortunate, too, for
General Shields and Colonel Vest, the
newly elected Senators, that this
looseiess of verbiage occirred in the
caucus rules, instead of in the election
itself; els6'soni 1 fu -morning they
might have yaked up minus a seat in
the great American Forum, and found
themselves deprived of their daily
allowance ofr Congressional soap and
Senatorhil tooth picks.
Of course, law is law, an( the term
"ballot" has a definite signification
horeafter in South Carolina. Still it
is gratifying to have pL-roof of the cor
rectness of ouri former' assertion that,
in present usage, thle termi ballot has
not its technical and original sigiiica
tion, and that a riva vocc vote may1 he
considered a "ballot" until decided
otherwise by the courts.
