Chalmers, under pretence that the tally sheet was theessential part of the return, although the returns from Union, Tippah, and De Soto counties, where you have major ities certified, have no tally sheets ac companying the certificate 4th. That the holding of an election at the Graball precinct, Tallahatchie county, where I would have received a large majority, was openly restated by your partisans, armed with Winchester rifles under pretence of fear of small-pox, although the voting precinct was some distance from the region infected by small-pox, and although the infected re gion was then and had been for a long time previously safely quarantined and guardeil so that no one could go in or come out therefrom. 5th. That In spite of the fraud- at tempted and practiced by vour friends, I received a minority of 1,332 votes, as member of the Forty-eighth Congress of the United States for the second district of Mississippi, as certified and returned by the inspector and elerk of the several election precincts to the commissioner of In said district there are over lo.OOO colored voter, and a large proportion of them were raised as slaves, and are so ignorant as to be easily misled or cheated. Very many of them are instructed and believe that they are the wards of the Federal Government, and suppose that they are in dutv bound to vote as de sired hv the Administration or it offi- intn.e that if it vm not so made, the i cials. and manv were induced to vote for election officials, clerks and inspectors of you locause of the instructions given by Marsliall county would be prosecuted in revenue and postal agents, deputy mar- the Federal court.

EXCELSIOR FOIMIRY ! maciii : i n -ano Manv colored voters, unable to read, were induced by protestations of sieeial retard and care for them, by a few of more intelligence of their race, to give overruled hv the Secretary of State, after argument, in which you took the position that it was his duty to count the return as made, although other facts appearing in the pretest accompanying j their suffrages into the keeping of the the returns demonstrated its incorrect- latter, supposing that they would re ceive diauitereatiea advice, but i charge that with the money corruptly used in said district by you and others in your behalf, these advisers or "bosses" were bribed and debauched into using their influence and securing many of said voters to vote for you. These illegal methods were retorted to in all the counties iu said district, ex cepting Union, perhaps, and notably the case as I am ad ised and believe, nnd so charge the fact to bo, in t lie counties of Benton, Marshall and Panola. By this corrupt means yon secured at least one-third of all the otcs cast for youana your unuui Kii,e uMuucuuus i elections in tneir respective counties, and 'to the inspectors and clerk of elections j but for the fraudulent and illegal prac not to sign and certify the returns Mice of vour friends mv majority would where vou stipposeu i wouiu receive nave exceeded 3,000 votes. majorities, and that these instruct ions were carried out at five precincts in Mar shall countv. and various precincts in other counties. 1 charge that your friends attempted to make fraudulent changes in the reg istration books and that at various pre cincts, notably Holly Springs and Byhalia, in Marshall county, and Olive Branch, in DeSotO county, your parti nans in charge thereof refused to allow the Uniieu duties cupei visum m iiu tinize the registration books. That when the election was over, your friends at Chulahonia, in Marshall coun ty, at night blew out the lights, tore up the tally sheets, and were only pre vented from stealing the ballot-box by the courage and coolness of tho United States Supervisor. That at the Lauderdale box, in De Soto county, one of your partisan in spectors was caught in the act of chang ing the nanots as iney were put in mc box, and that at Eudora and Lake Cor morant, in said county, the boxes were secretly stiitled, thus changing the re sult in DeSoto county from a majority of several hundred for me to a majority of 135 for you. That at the three precincts in Talla hatchie county, to-wit: Granball, Hyber sia, and llufords, where I would have obtained 500 or more majority, and at Nesbetts precinct, in DeSoto county, where I would have received 100 major ity or more, your partisan inspectors refused to hold any election, and dis suaded others from so doing, and I charge that this was done under inter ventions from you and your political managers. That when the election returns had been sent bv the inspectors at each prc- Jas. 11. Chalmers. Washington, Dec. 80, 1882. Hon. J. it. Chalmers: Sir -1 have received your notice that you contest my right to" rep resent the Second Congressional District of Mississippi in the Forty-Eighth Con gress, and answer the same as follows: 1 deny that any certificates, or pretend ed certificates, which you may have filed with the Clerk of the House of Repre sentatives, show that you have the prima fane, right to said seat. It is untrue that my friends either at tempted to make fraudulent change in the registration books of any precinct of said district, or refused to allow the United States supervisors of elections to scrutinize them, or "after the elec tion was over at Chulahoma, in Marshall county, blew out the lights, tore up the tally sheets and attempted to steal the ballot boxes, or that there were no tallv sheets accompanying the returns from the Hast Holly Springs box," which gave me a majority ; or that at Lauderdale, in De Soto county, one of my partisan inspectors was caught ''in the act of changing ballots as they were put in the box;" or that at Kudota and Lake Cor morant, in said county, the boxes were stuffed; or that at Graball, Hiberniaand Buffdru's, in Tallahatchie county, and at Nesbitt, in De Soto county, my parti san tnsnectors refused to hold any elec tion under instructions from myself or my political managers, and 1 charge that if anv exhibition of force (as to which 1 am not advised) was made ai Graball to prevent the holding of an election, it was made by the citizens generally, with out regard to party, and in the interest of the health of the community ; and 1 deny that you would have received the majority of the votes claimed at each or any of the afon said boxes had an elec tion been held. It is untrue, as I am advised, that the ! Commissioner of Election for Marshall countv directed the clerk, in or out of cinet to the commissioners tor canvass, and when the results had been publish" ed showing a majority of over 1,300 votes for me, you and your friends wrote letters and sent messengers and i-i t. 1 FWmmam4 it, ,,ttor iciegrauis io itoiuis imutiuif m ,,.,. r ..,,l,,.

When the return from Tate county wa reached and examined, it did not show that you received any votes, but did show that .1. K. t'hambless received 1472 votes. 1 pon the reverse side Of the paper containing said return, in a certificate not required by law, and therefore unofficial, it was stated that you received 1472 votes, as appeared from the return upon the other side. Counsel in my behalf insisted that the vote which the return gave to Chambless could not be counted for you. Vou asked the Secretary of State for time to secure the assistance of counsel. Your request was granted, your counsel ap peared, but tin- argument had but com menced, when an order fas served Upon i the Secretary, issued by the .lodge of the Circuit Court for the Ninth Judi cial li-triet of said State, prohibiting him proceeding farther in the perform ance of duty which the law enjoined upon him. This order w:is treated as void for many reasons, it was secured by the statement in vour petition that the Sec retary "refuses to count the returns from Tate" county for me" (meaning your self), which ww fit,'M as the Secretary had taken no action up to that time, but was hearing argument, and properly dis regarding said order, at the conclusion of the argument held, for the same rea son, that he had declined to notice pro test from Commissioners of Marshall county, that the vote must be counted for Chambless, as it was so returned. Thereupon In- delivered to the Governor ot Mississippi a siaieuieiu n me nuiiioci of votes cast for each candidate for Congress in said Congressional District, which statement showed that 1 received a majority of such votes. Upon this statement the Governor, as required by law, issued to me the cer tificate of election. In this whole mat ter the Secretary and Governor but compiled with the mandate of the law. 1 deny that any frauds were attempted or practiced by my friends, or that they were guilty of fraudulent or illegal practices, or that you received a majori ty of :w votes as member ot the forty-Eighth Congress from said Congres sional District, though I admit that the inspectors and clerks of the several elec tion precincts did certify to the county commissioners ot election m their respec tive enmities that vou received a major it y of the votes cast ; and 1 further ad mit that fourteen hundred and seventy two votes which the commissioners of Tate county returned as cast for J. EL Chambless, were in fact cast ior you, and that the name Chambless was in the return by clerical error instead of your Have never handled anything which gave better satisfaction for Blood or Skin Diseases than S.

And in this connection I state, tha because of said error to vour prejudice a majority. That the Democratic leaders in other counties, and especially DeSoto county, refused to obey your instructions and thus frustrated this conspiracy. That the commissioners in Panola county declined to certify the returns from Pleasant G rove and Pleasant Mount precincts, which gave me 202 majority, because in one, seventeen more votes were found than voters and in the other one, less votes than voters, and on this flimsy nnttaYt these boxes were thrown out of the count by the Secretary of State, thus depriving me of 202 major ity. That the commissioner of Marshall county threw out tlie Hudsonville box, which gave me (37 majority, for want h a tallv sheet accompanying the returns, and counted the East Holly Springs box which gave 3(' majority for you. although there was no tally sheet with the returns therefrom. That the commissioner of election of Marshall county made out returns of election and certified the same, and di rected the clerk in my presence to seal up these returns and forward the same to the Secretary of State on Monday, the 14th of November and then ad iournen1 mnkinir no orotest of any kind with their returns. That the Secretnry of State pretended that the returns from Marshall county did not reach him until Friday, the 17th of November, though if sent as directed, they should have reached him on the 15th. That when opened a protest against lay, and retained by loard of Commission- in ation of protest, forwarded by express on that dav with protest to the Secretary of State, and you were notified by bun on Friday, Nov. 17th, of the receipt of the election returns from Marshall coun ty within thirty minutes after they came to his hands." The protest was not in the handwriting of Major Win. Strick land, chairman of the Democratic Ex ecutive Committee of Marshall county, and no one acquainted with the facts or his handwriting said that it was, and the statement of facts in said protest is substantially true. It, is untrue that the Secretary of State fraudulently concealed from the inspec tion of yourself and your friends the returns of election from the said Second District, and the statement which you allege that Price Porter made as to consultation between the Secretary of State and Robt. Lowry, the Governor of 1 Mississippi, is untrue in whole and in t : . r - 1 .,.,,1 1 . every part, as 1 am iiuonucu auu w lieve. The clmrire that I and mv friends gave instructions to the inspectors and clerks of election not to sign and certify the re turns where I supposed you would re onivn minority of votes, is utterly false and groundless, and your further charge that when the election returns had been sent by the inspectors at each precinct to the county commissioners for canvass, I and mv friends sent messages and tide grams to leading Democrats in other counties, stating that I could have five boxes in Marshall county thrown out f- irrcrnlarities. thus reducing your majorityiargely in that county, and urg- J mnon t mt chnnee the , i . , . . , mp my unit' 1 1 i a .i r their own returns was found in the pa- "',! ti10:r (.Unties as to give me a i. and snid to be in the hand ot YV . . .' , i,.,i- ,.n.nivid and ut- M.

That the Secretary of State fraudu lently concealed from the inspection of myself and my friends the returns from the second Congressional district, while he ne.rmittixl the returns from other dis trict to be inspected and published, and while he gave notice in advance to your attorney of an ambiguity in the returns from Tata 01 mntv. And I charge specifically that Price Porter, the deputy Secretary of State, has said that, the returns from Tate other counties, nnd especially in DeSoto, defeated such alleged conspiracy oy re fusing to obevsueh imaginary instruc tions is a fiction without foundation in I deny that the credentials issued to me were illegal or fraudulent, and the charge that they were issued in pursu a nnnimiraov originated by my- oelf or my immediate partisans in charge of my canvass, is glanderous and false. The facte are these: , 1M. On Saturday, November 18, 188A the I will not take a seat in or ask the clerk to enroll my name as a member thereof until I have vindicated, and the House shall have affirmed, my right thereto. 1 charge, 11)1011 information and belief, that many votes riven you, at every pre cinct aggregating at least one-third of all you received, were gained by you in modes wholly illegal and subversive of a fair and free ballot, and should not be counted. Having ore tended for manv years to be in full accord with the Democratic party, vou on the day of , 1882, entered into a corrupt bargain with some of the members of the Republican OeU gressional Executive Committee of which Jav A. Hubbell was Chairman, and D. B. Henderson, Secretary, where by you were to be A candidate for (Jon gross at said election, and if elected to vote with their patty, or as desired by the Federal Administration, on certain important party questions, in considera tion for which, it was agreed that said Administration should use its power, and make its appointments in said Con gressional District, in such manner as best to promote your election, ami iiiai money should be collected from Federal employees and used as a corruption fund in said district. In oursuance to this corrupt under standing, many Government officials and employees in said district diligently worked for your election, lest any lack of zeal in that respect might result in the loss of their respective positions. Federal appointments were made during the campaign with reference to your elec tion rather than the public service, and unnolntees wore sent to mat district on the false pretence of public service, but in reality to coax and drive the voters of that district to your support. I charge that part of the consideration for the support of you, by one Geo. M. Buchanan, and one John S. Burton, of Marshall county, was the appointment of one John Malum. Postmaster at Holly Springs, in said county, and that one A. T. Wimberlv, of Yalobusha county, and one Edgar A. West, of Marsliall county, were appointed by the Commissioner of Internal Revenue as Special Revenue Agents, at large salaries, to secure their active support for you, and to act as emissaries from the Government during said campaign, and that thov did give nearly their entire time to political work in your interest. vou. !J 1 !i : 1 - - ;H hhiu oriueries aim unign nix nun "bosses" wore etloctod sscretly, I am tin- 5Vi able to speed v names at present, out 11 ,1 .. t.. .'.1.. ..t... :.i .. 1, :..i,..-., ,,11 V ueraii toe uwh wuiohiu iuiiii.n, mi known to you. By these corrupt means you secured at least one-third of all the votes cast for vou. I charge that the United States Mar shal for the Northern District of Mis sissippi, iu gross violation of law at your solicitation, and in opposition to the opinion ot the federal Judge ol that district, as expressed to tho Governor of Mississippi when in conference with him upon that subject a short time before election day, appointed numerous spec ial deputies with the knowledge of the Deoartment of Justice, ostensibly to maintain the peace, but in reality fort the purose of intimidating those who favored me and prevent their going to the noils bv fear of arrest and i.r--sedi tion in the Federal Courts. I charge that such special deputies, at your instance, were instructed to obey the United States Supervisors of Elec tions who, under instruct ions from their chief, one Orlando Rivis, usurped ti e functions of overseeing the elections and of determining how they should be ,,i . .li ... ..1 1: ... IICUI, aim oi compelling ooeuicuce HI their unlawful orders; and they, thus armed with apparent Federal authority, assumed the right to arrest all who might choose to disobey both State, of ficials and voters, rendering an election Impossible at Bynolid, in Marshall county, by the arrest of a State official, thus interfering with and preventing the due and lawful exorcise of Stab-authority. 1 charge that you wrote and had one Orlando Davis, Chief rederal Supervisor of Elections for the Northern District of Mississippi to publish nnd distribute throughout said district to Federal Pre cinct Supervisors, instructions which were in violation of law, and intended by you to aid in intimidating my supporters. A copy of said instructions together ! with a copy of the instructions of the t j Governor of Mississippi to State officials , in answer thereto, is hereto attached, , marked exhibits Nos. 1 and '2, and made part of tins answer. Ana 1 turtner charge that by these corrupt end fraud ulent proceedings that, you succeeded in your purpose and deterred from coming to the polls, as many as 8000 voters who would otherwise have voted for me. ,1 charge that during the campaign vou froouentlv in DUblic tDseches men aced voters with the infliction of your vengenee as a volunteer prosecutor, ami with severe punishment by the Federal Court whose purpose in this regard you professed to know - should acts at the thou ensuing election be committed against your interest by officials ,r others, doomed by you 1 1 be illegal or fraudulent, and that with a view of giv ing additional weight to your professed ability to enforce your threats, you often appropriated your own familiarity with and participation in criminal acts in previous elections, and vour own menao- F 1. i.. vr f. n ' i."i..
