ARGU MENT AS TO WHAT EVI

COMMISSION CAN
RECEIVE.
I
SPESCngs BY B. T. MEURICK, .IÏUHY
BLACK, STANLEY MATTHEWS
AND g. W. STOUGHTON.
Washington, February 8.—All of
tc-day's stsrion wore away in argu
ment upon the three issues raised this
morning. Whether evidence as such
had been brought before the commis
sion by the Democratic objections,
whether in any case evidence could
be received, and being received, to
what limit it should be admissible.
When the session closed to.day both
sides had opened and the Republican
counsel had gone half way through
their closing speech. With the delay
which this interkentory motion has
brought no one anticipates a decision
before Thursday, and it may be not
before Saturday, on tbe main issue,
while ilic subsidiary issue turning
the admission of evidence cannot be
reached before Tuesday morning. So
far the advantage in preparation and
in the minor skirmishes over procedure
is steadily with the Democratic coun
sel- The vital issue turns upon the
disposition of the commission to take
a common law or an equity view of
the subject before it,and it was to day
a jmjewortliy feature iu the course of
discussion that the forensic shill of
the Democratic counsel tended con
stantly to force the proceedings into
ike mould of equity procedure, both
silks using (he terms and appealing to
tiio principles of a chancery court.
Something of all this is due to the es
sentially equitable nature of the extra
legal ar.U (Xlraordinary remedy which
the commission is constituted to pro
cure, but more hinges upon the method
and order ot the Democratic attack.
Tbe brief discussion this morning,
which outlined the issues upon which
argument proceeded, brought Charles
O'Conor forward for the first time in
u short brief embodying tbe evidence
uf record winch the Democratic coun
sel proposed to submit. Evarts made
his answer, and after the recess argu
ment upon the admission of evidence
was opened by Richard T. Merrick, a
lawet somewhat over the milddle age,
speaking with more weight than
fluency, but never delaying for word
or sentence, and neldiDg a surpassing
ly strong and logical chain, which
hung upon the voteB whose verifica
tion must precede the eount. Perhaps
the best point for mere effect which
lie made turned upon his quotation—
the same which was made iu a lead
ing article in yesterday's World—
from Morton's Louisiana report in
fauor of an examinatiou behind the
certificate. A shortspeeeh from Jerry
Black turned upon some historical in
stances of a similar act, and then J.
Stanley Matthews,with less of the law
yer and more of the Congressman iu
his manner than any that have preced
ed, dealt at length with the inability
of quo tcrtmmfo proceedings to reach
the past acts of an officer acting by
virtue of a regular commission.
W. Stoughtou just closed prior to ad
journment his plea for the inviolable
character of the Skate certificate. Mr.
Evarts will complete the Republican
argument ou Monday.

In the U. S. Senate on Saturday, the
credentials of Henry G. Davis, Senator
elect from West Virginia, and Alvin
Saunders, Seuator etect from Nebraska,
were presented and placed on file. Mr.
Hitchcock, of Nebraska, introduced a
hill incorporating the "Metropolitan Life
Insurance Company ofthe United States.''
Mr. Anthony submitted a resolution in
structing the Committee on Appropria
tions to report a bill making an appro
priatlen for the support of the Govern
ment Printing office. Mr. Hamlin submit
ted amendments to the Post-oflice Appro
printion bill, appropriating $500,000 for
a mail subsidy to the Pacific Mail Steam
ship Compauy, and appropriating $250,
000 from the Post-office revenues for a
fast railway mail-serCice. The amend
ments and Mr. Anthony's resolution
were referred to the Committee on Ap
propriations. After an executive session,
the Senate took a recess until Monday
morning.
Iu the House, it was ordered that the
consideration of the Florida report should
take place on whatever day the first jour
nal should be read. The Legislative Ap
propriation bill was passed. It leaves
the pay of Congressmen at $5000, and re
duces the President's salary to the old
figure of $25,000. A message from the
President, recommending legislation to
hasten the resumption of specie pay
ments, was read and referred to the Com
mittee of Ways and Means. The House
then took a recess until Monday morn

WABiiiNGTON, February 2.—There
bug been some misunderstanding aboi :l
the action of the senate committee on
Louisiana in reference to an attempt
to BUbprena the returning board out et
the custody of the sergeant-at-arms
of the House. This request lias not
so far been made, but the senate com
mittee has asked for the privilege of
seeing and examining the original
returns from the parish of Vennou,
now In possession of the house com
mittee on powers and privileges- The
propriety of acceding to this request
was discussed in executive session by
the committee this afternoon.and they
decided to gram it, with the under
standing that the paper in question
must not be retained by the senate
committee longer than a single day.
In regard to the alleged requisition
for the returning boaru members, the
bouse committee will emphatically
resist any such attempt to rob them of
their prisoners, and their action will,
of course, be sustained by the House.
They argue that the Senate has no
more right than a common individual
to intertere with any regular process
of the representative body.

It
sin. TUCKE&fS ARGVSOKXT ox
FRIDAY.
Mr. Tqckor followed Mr. Field. The
objections he said, which are maGGby the
members of the two houses of Congress
to the counting of the electors who voted
for J/essrs. Hayes and Wheeler are to be
Î resented this morning in form, to which
call the attention ot the commission.—
The first objection is that the said Pierce
and others were were no* appointed by
the said state of Florida, in such manner
as its Legislature had directed. The sec
ond is that the said Wilkinson, Call and
others, the Tilden electors, were appoint
ed by the said state in snob a manner as
its Legislature bad directed. The third
is that qualified electors of the said state
in manner as provided by the law of
Florida did elect Wilkinson, Call and
and others the Tilden electors.The fourth
Is that the pretended certificate or paper
purporting to be such signed by Stearns
as governor ofthat state, of the appoint
ment ot Pierce and others, was anu is in
all respects untrue, and was corruptly
procured and made in pursuance of a
conspiracy between said Stearns, Pierce
and others to set up fictitious and unreal
votes for President and Vice-President.
The fifth is that said papers, falsely pur
porting to be votes for President and
Vice President for the state of Florida,
are fictitious and unreal, and do not pro
perly represent any votes as lawful acts,
and were made out and executed in pur
suance of the said fraudulent conspiracy.
The sixth sets out at length what I will
state succinctly: That by a into icuit
to proceeding, initiated prior to the '
given for Hayes and Wheeler,
electors, on the sixth day of December,
and which resulted in an adjournment to
the 2.-itli or 2iith of January, their election
and their title to thc.ofiices of the state of
Florida was declared utterly null and
void, and they were usurpera and pre
tenders to the said offices, lu that case
of ip'o vmfrmxto the parties were the state
of Florida er ref. Wilkinson, Call and
others, (the Tilden eleotors against the
Hayes electors) These are the objections
made, and they may be summarized thus:
We object to these votes being counted,
because we say that these wen were not
elected according to the law of Florida;
and, not being so eleeted, can have no
title to the office. Secondly, we hohl
that even if they had been elected ac
cording to the forms of the law of Florida
their election was tainted, and is void.
The whole question presented to this
tribunal is a question presented to the
two houses of Congress, and in which
they have substituted this tribunal in
their stead to decide, It is simply this:
Is their any power in the constitution
under which we live by which a fraud
can be prevented on the presidency?
When Mr. Tücher had completed his
remarks, Mr. KassonsaUl that on consul
tation lie thought it due to the interests
represented byhimself and Mr. McCrary
that he should ask further time to ex
amine the certificates, which are all in
volved in these objctions. He asked it
specially upon this ground, that instead
0 f the certificates, and papers to which
objections apply appearing in print in
the Record tllis morning, as was expect
e d, they had not appealed, and he had
no access to them until counsel on the
other side in their printed document had
,, Iacea tliem befor £ him . Jn addition to
j], a j tiit? magnitude of the questions pre
s „ nt( , (I by arguments of Mr. Field and
M r. Tucker were a reason why he should
a t*empt to aid the commission more than
eouM lie done by proceeding immediate
?vith his remarks, Several members

shall ihe two houses of Congress, the
öe ntinel guarda appointed by the Con
stitution against usurpation of the high
office; shall this tribunal, the substitute
for the sentinel guard, permit fraud to
crawl with slimy trail into the executive
seat whence it may ; pring from its coii
and sting with fatal fang the life-blood
of the greatest republic in the world? Is
the fiat, of a returning board tainted with
fraud and based upon lawlessness, to
conclude the judgment of the Amer
ican people in putting a usurper in the
seat of Washington?
Mr. Tucker continued at .some length.
He alluded to the quo icarranto case of
the State of Florida, ex relatione Wilkin
son, Call and others, and to the decision
of the Supreme Court of the State of
Florida in that case. The decision of
that Court, he argued, to be sustained
by authorities, citing, among othor au
thorities; "Hirh on Extraordinary Rem
edies," section 706. The returning board,
be regarded as merely one step in the
authority by which promulgations of el
ections were made. The final determi
nation authority (.if he were allowed to
make a word for the occasion) provided
by the staie of Florida was the Supreme
Court. Therefore, unless the primary
déterminant authority, namely, the
board, i3 conclusive, not only in its ac
tion, but also as to the extent of its pow
er, t hen we must regard the proceeding
in Florida upon the action of these el
ectors as a part of that determinant
power which the state has provided
against fiaud and ilegality in the exer
cise of elective function.
