but that he had examined into the Taw of
Pennsylvania, bear! ng ou the ease, and
thought asimiharone for this State would
answer the purpose very well.
By rcqupst of the members Mr. Neilds
t./thtek iîîf TH! c1 ' the mem bers seemed
to think suited the case exactly.
tlut ùmnirert h. wh ? wa * P res, ' nt stated
that there bad been two very good amend

On motion of Mr. Heald, the Commit
tee wore instruuted to have a bill drawn
up to oonnforra to the law just road with
the amendments, and present the same to
the Legislature.
The Committee on State ta*. Mr. Rid
dle, stated that the matter had been fully
discussed at a meeting of the Committee,
and that they deemed it expedient to
make an earnest effort to have the state
tax on manufacturing reduced. The tax
was wrong and inexpedient, and now is
the time to have it repealed. The Com
mittee also deemed it nnwise to ask that
the ^tax on merchants be reduced.
Mr. Bush moved that the report bn ae
cepted, and the Committee be instructed
to prosecute the work at Dover.
Mr. Todd moved to amend that the
Committee have the power to increase
their nutqber.
The amendment was accepted and the
report adopted.
Mr. Hayes wanted to know if this re
duction would have any effect on the
State license. He was answered that it
would not.
The Committee on tlio cultivation of
the Sugar Beet, Mr. Pusey chairman,
made a lengthy report, and offered the
following preamble and resolutions:
W h eke ah, the subject of beet root su
gar miuuifaet.u.ing is one that interests
all d afcA of society, and
JlBreAS, the development depends
entirely upon our ability to grow the
beet properly, therefore, in order to se
geoerai interest in the subject and
to induce a thorough and systematic de
monstration of onr ability to grow the
hset in our State, it is
Itttolced, That we request the Legisla
ture to make an appropriation for the
pnrpose of offering premiums for the
years 1877 and 1S7S the amount of
for the best results in growing sugar
beets; suggesting that the premiums
be awarded by a commission consisting
of the President of Delaware College, the
State Chemist, and one person to do ap
pointed by the Wilmington Board of
Trade, and that said commission be au
thorised and empowered to establish
each rules for, tlie disbursements of said
premiums as shall in their _ '
contribute most to the success 'of the de
sired object.
On motion the report and resolutions
were adopted.
The member from the Board of Trade
will he appointed by the President at
some future day.
Mr. Bradford, who
core a
was not present at
the opening of the meeting came tn about
9 o'clock and as he had Just come from
Dover, he was called to give his views as
to what he thought of the success of
getting the present State tax reduced.
Mr, Bradford, stated that while in
Dover, be had a conversation with Mr.
Holcomb, Chairman of the Ways and
Means committee, and that the ge
man had stated to him that he had
gathering data and found that Kent
county paid a state tax, SI,800; Sussex
$750; and New Castle, $12,700. Ha (Mr.
Holcomb) thought that the tax rate
would be reduced one half as the mem
bers of the Legislature were not in favor
" it all.
d wished to know whether
there was any chance of having the
usuary laws changed.
Mr. Bradford did not think there was a
shadow of a change as it grew stronger
with every Legislature.
After an address by Joseph Grubb, of
the Philadelphia Board ofTrade on the
usuary laws, the meeting adjourned.

Messrs, S. YY. Fowle & Co.
About seven months since I was se
verely afflicted with whooping cough
and had almost given up the hope orre
uovery. It was a most violent attack of
this distructive aud dangerous disease.
I had tried every remedy which I had
heard recommended, but they all failed
until a trial of Dr, Wistar's Balsam of
Wild Chkrky was commenced, the use
of which gave immediate relief. Under
admiliar circumstances, rather than be
without the Balsam, I would pay flftyl
dollars for a bottle of it, believing that it
is the only certain antidote for the dis
ease. I most cheerfully recommend this
invaluable remedy to the public,

The silver mines of Laurium, Greece,

the working of the ancient Greeks, but

Wash I. vu tom, February 18.—The
Electoral Commission resumed its ses
sion at 11 a. m. to-day, took a iecess at
4 p. tn. for an ltour, and sat from 5 to
0.20|i. m.. when It adjourned. A plea
from the Democratic counsel for six hours
in closing was refused and the time for
the presentatisn of argument was limit
ed to four hours and a half on each side.
Both circumstances indicate an earlier
close than was anticipated. It is probable
that the commission^ pass in£> secret
session on the Louisiana case to-morrow
evening, and will certainly do so Thurs
day mo nfo;. A decision Thursday after
uoon or Friday morning is well nigh
certain. This will leave the way open to
a decision In the üregon'casc by the mid
die of next week. ^
The Louisiana case opened to-day be
fore the commission without a particle
of listless interest. A scattering audience,
the familiar counsel and the unchanging
bench came together again at 11. This
settling a Presidency and deciding the
claims of a sovereign State has grown in
a fortnight to be a most commonplace
matter, running from day to dav in
smooth worn grooves. The objectors be

broad right of the board to exist and act,
he took up next its methods, and had de
fined t he limitations assigned to its
workings by law when Representative
Jenks took up the burden of argument.
His singularly perspicuous plea deserves
the most careful attention, as it received
to-day a most respectful hearing.
A thin, spare man, his speaking is as
clear and deliberate as his diction, and
his argument moves along to the quietest
gestures, one stretched forefluger dropping
lightly on the other stretched forefinger as
he makes one point and another in his
close knit, logical argument. Represent

Returning Board to canvass the vote as it
pleased, and the last with the essential

refused to the Democratic counsel, no^y

which most construed unfavorably to the
Democrats. It is unfortunately the cose
that the discussions of the commission
seem to have scored pretty deep lines in
the commission. It is growing constants
ly more and more easy to tell by a Com
missioner's manner on which side his
ympathies rest.
It was quite dark when the commis

feferred to tbie- tribunal to inquire
Who and what persons had been duly
appointed eleotora in that State, This
tribunal, he argued, was in the nature
of a legislative commission of investi
gation and had neither judicial nor
executivefunctions.for its conclusions
were all subject to the revisionary ac
tion of Congress.
It was created like those commissions
out of which British legislation had
grown to correct sueh frauds nB were
peeping out of the ballot box in England

in this trihanal. H
unctions of the commission were very
iffeotive and seemed to meet with no ob

The people will not be content, he added
on mere technicalities to have a Prcsi-,
lent counted in on false certificates. No
udge ought to rest his decision on a pri
na facie case, for there was devolved
pen him the clearand unambigous duty
of going to the very bottom of the frauds.
If it was answered that there waB not
time, then the commission ought to dis
solve and notify Congress of the faot. As
Mr. Carpenter approached the case be

over a good deal of time, and therefore |

for the election ?f Presidential electors.
■He made a brilliant analysis of the col-1
lusive aots of Louisiana, and with a
splendid audacity held up the rogut a of
the Returning Board to the legal light
which they had overleaped themselves.

the commission made inquiries on the
illegal i xietence of the board. Mr. Car
penter also showed that Congress ignored
the board four years ngo and declared
if it was a fraud then it was a fraud ..

He had proceeded this far when, as
