about the State debt; insists that Gov
ernor Nicholls shall soon gravely con
sider the subject and treat it with calm
ness and wisdom. We are disposed to
think our excellent neighbor is vexing
its soul unduly in this matter.
The recognition of the legal govern
ment of the State, and the disappear
anoe of the Packard fraud, will estab
lish confidence everywhere in the se
curities of the State, and the deficien
cies in the interest fund of 1876, re
ferred to by the Picayune Sunday, and
more fully treated by the DEMOOCAT
Tuesday morning, will not in any meas
ure affect the credit of the State.
When the status of the Nicholls gov
ernment shall be undisputed, there will
be an immediate appreciation of prop
erty throughout the State, and, as the
remarks of great Northern capitalists
at the meeting in New York a few days
since, to discuss the financial affairs of
the Southern States, very clearly indi
cates, large amounts of capital will seek
investment in our commerce and enter
prises. In view of such a prospect, it
would be insane folly for the holders of
the unfunded bonds, on which the back
interest is due, to take any steps which
would depreciate their own property;
and in our articlo Tuesday, we pointed
out the absurdity of supposing that a
matter of $38,(0)t defllcency in thile in
torest fund could disturb the financial
condition of the government.
The main point to be attained now, is
the undisputed authority of the govern
mloelt; there is no disposition in the
State to repudiato its debt or any por
i,on o it., andti the main point gained,
the financial noffirs of the Stato will
readily assume a solid, safe and sub
The only event which could perma
nently injuriously affect our State secu
rities, would be the overthrow of the
Nicholls G(overnment. Should an ef
fort be made by the Federal power to
establish Packard, or to establish in the
State any other than the government
elected by the people, the bonds of the
State would be virtually repudiated;
for the simple reason that the
State would be ruined; no taxes
would be paid; the people
would leave Mlr. Packa and the
creditors of the State to settle the debt
to please themselves, wth what plunder
they might be able to capture, and ap
propriate to that purpose. When there
is a certainty of the overthrow of the
Nicholls government, and we think
there never will be, then we advise all
good men who hold State securities to
get rid of them as fast as possible and
as best they can.
REASONS FOR OUR FAITH.
Since the DEMOCRAT appears to be al
most the only journal of this city that
takes a cheerful view of the political
situation, we deem it incumbent upon
us to give some reasons for the faith
that is in us. We shall endeavor, there
fore, in this article to convoy to the
minds of our readers a clear under
standing of our views in the matter.
The act of Congress creating the
Electoral Commission provides in its
second section that the commission
shall exercise, with respect to the
counting of the votes of States for
which double sets of certificates have
been sent up, "the same powers, if any,
now possessed for that purpose by the
two houses acting separately, or to
gether, and by a majority of votes de
cide whether any, and what, votes from
such State are the votes provided for by
the Constitution of the United States,
and how many and what persons were
dulU appointed electors in such State."
Under these provisions of the act
three main questions will be presented
to the Commission for its determina
1. What evidence may be submitted
to the Tribunal?
2. Is the certifllcato of the Governor of
the State conclusive as to the fact of the
election of the persons claiming to be
electors, or may that certificate be im
peached for fraud or error?
3. Can the Commission accept and
count, as one of "the votes provided for
by the Constitution of the United
States," the vote of a person shown to
have been a United States officeholder
at the time of the election?
The commission decided on Wednes
day, in the Florida case, that it would
not hear evidence outside of the record
transmitted to it, except in respect to
the eligibility of electors, and it as
signed no limit to the testimony it
would receive on that point. Further
on we shall show the immense ad
vantage of this exception to the Demo
cratic side of the controversy.
The other questions are yet to be de
cided, and we now propose to show that,
as we remarked yesterday, the com
mission cannot adopt any rule of deci
sion which will not result in the
election of Governor Tilden, either
by the Electoral College or by the
House of Representatives.
If it should be determined that the
certificate of the Governor of a State is
conclusive as to the fact of the appoint
ment of the elector, and that it cannot
be impeached and ignored, either be
cause of fraud or error, Tilden will lose
the votes of Florida and Louisiana, but
must necessarily gain the vote of
Cronin, in Oregon, and thus receive the
one vote he lacks of a majority. If it
be decided that such certificate may be
impeached, then the vote of Florida
c~nnot be counted for Hayes, because of
the decisions of the courts of that State
annulling the Governor's actions.
What the effect of such decision would
be upon the vote of Louisiana, would
depend upon the character of the evi
denoe to he presented. Thus, which
Nhora 9O thi dieiasmm& theS' b W
S goohstquaes wei have indicated.
But, apart from the Loutsiana ease,
which has not been developed as yet,
the point upon which we mainly rely
and which we have always considered
the strongest point in the Democratic
case from a purely legal and constitu
tional point of view, however humili
ating it may be to have to depend upon
what some persons characterize as a
mere technicality, is that which relates
to the ineligibility of several Republi
can electors. The constitution is ex
plicit in its declaration that "no person
holding any office of trust or profit
under the United States shall be ap
pointed an elector."
It is charged by the Democrats that
Humphreys, one of the Hayes electors
in Florida, was an officeholder at the
time of the election, but evidence to the
contrary was presented to the Commis
sion yesterday, and sitnce there is great
doubt as to the fact, wel dismiss his case
from consideration. With respect to
Brewster, however, one of the pretend
ed electors in this State, and Watts, the
Oregon elector, there is not the slight
est doubt as to the fact that they were
officeholders at the time of their elec
Lion, and the only defense they have to
mako against the charge of inellgibility
is that they resigned the r oflilces before
they acted as electors. This (eensoe
ralies the question whether their d i,
qualileatlion operated as a fai I re to Ll)'
,polnt, or crcatd'(l It vac(ancIIy Ihait could
be ill'ed by the remain. lug ,l'(tors.
[pon thisi point w.e have two recent
precodonts. in the States of Verm(oul,
and Rhode Island two itnligiblle dele
tore were voted for. The Governor
or RhodI Island referred the matter to
the Supreme Court or the Stlate, and
that court decided that the ineligibility
of the elector did not create a vacancy,
but constiuted a failure to ciect. There
upon the legislature was convened and
elected a fourth elector for Rhode Is
land. In Vermont the same course was
pursued. But in Louisiana and Oregon
the case was entirely different. Brew
ster and Watts pretend to have re
signed, but we know that the former
certainly continued to act as United
States Surveyor General up to the 6th
of December, and, indeed, has con
tinued to act as such up to the present
day. Therefore, he was constitution
ally disqualified, and his vote can never
be counted for Hayes. The Supreme
Court of the United States, in a deci
sion rendered quite recently, held that
an offledholder, notwithstanding he
may have resigned his position, re
maigs an office-holder until his suc
cessor qualifies and takes his place.
This is a decision directly in point, and
we cannot see how it can be disregarded
by the five Justices of the Electoral
The foregoing hastily prepared re
marks embody some of our views on the
electoral question as it now stands. Of
course, in speculating upon the matter,
we proceed up)on the assumption that
Judge Bradley will continue to act in a
non-partisan manner. Of course, if ho
should be guilty of so debasing himself
and degrading his high position as to
descend to the low level of a mere Rad
ical politician, it would be useless to ar
gue the question of the disputed Presi
dlncy from the standpoint of law and(
right, but as yet we see no reason for
assuming that he will so act, and we
therefore remain firm in the conviction
that the right will yet prevail over
fraud and unscrupulous partisanship.
TIE MISSISSIP'I LEVEES ANDI) TIlE
SUGAR FIELDS OF LOUISIANA.
The joint resolution of the Senate
and House of Representatives of this
State, printed in the DIMOCRAT of the
7th inst., memorializing Congress to
aid in building the levees on the Mis
sissippi, touches not only a matter of
the greatest.materi;l interest to Louis
iana, but also of great present and
rapidly increasing interest to the peo
ple of every section of the United States.
To say nothing, just now, of the vast
areas of wonderfully productive cotton,
rice and tobacco lands these levees
would reclaim, the products of
which would soon swell the volume of
our foreign and domestic trade in
creasing the wealth of the country at
large, the sugar fields of the State,
which would be protected and brought
into cultivation were the levees securely
built, would alone render this great
work of national importance and fully
justify Congress in giving it the most
A glance at the past and present con
dition of the sugar interest of the
world and the outlook of that interest
will prove this very clearly. From re
liable statistics before us, we find that
the total product of sugar throughout
the world had in 1875 reached 3,168,000
tons. But the sugar product of 1876,
owing to several causes, fell off upwards
of half a million tons. This falling off
was not peculiar to the crop of any par
ticular sugar producing region of the
world. The production fell off not only in
Cuba, where, owing to the protracted
civil war, great numbers of extensive
sugar estates have been destroyed, but
also in those districts of Europe where
the beet root sugar is produced.
The consumption of sugar in this
country and Europe increased with the
rapid increase of that product anterior
to 1875, and the consumption has con
tinued to increase, notwithstanding the
falling off in the production since that
year. Indeed, sugar has almost be
come in this, and many other countries,
one of the necessaries of life, and the
enhanced price, due to the causes just
referred to, is becoming quite a tax
upon the people. These oauses, those of
them at least, affooting the production of
cane sUgar, which,is ohefy used ip the
Unst·djkt0. I@U~t Iia~ei~t jboO
di4t t a' the oOUiptat the pzodt
ton of sugar in the West Indies hence
f rth will 'probably continue to decline
while the demand for the commodity,
which now, in this country, amounts to
forty-elght pounds per head, with an
increasing population and growing
wealth, is likely to continue to increase,
and sugar ought to become one of the
largest articles of our domestic trade.
The sugar fields of Louisiana are
capable of supplying, in great part, the
domestio demand, and of adding im
mense wealth to our commerce. All that
is necessary to vastly increase the sugar
production of this 8tate is an appro
priation by the Federal government to
construct and repair the levees, behind
which lie our wonderful cane fields,
stretching from the Gulf of Mexico
high up the Mississippi and Red rivers.
The high price which for several years
the declining sugar fields of the world
will insure the sugar-planters of Lou
islana for their produce, will, so soon
as these levees are constructed, induce
the investment of largo sums in the
growing of cane and the manufacture
of sugar in Louisiana.
On a rough estimate the sugar and
molatsses product of this State last year
will be worth upwards of twenty millions
of dollars. This 'rcp was produced on
less than one tenth of the sugar lanmls
o,f Lo,uisiana. Thus, were these lands
fuily Iproteted and brought into culti
vation by ait influx of capital Indl li.h(
oHtablisinhment of safe and legal govcrn
ment, they aro capaLibl of minrking up
the great falling off in tho, ,rop o, the

hIlw vcast and rich an lrrntrest this
i-s which the Lgislature of Louis
iana solicbIts Congress to protect n n do
velope ; how largely it alects. the wealth
and commerce of the whole country;
how clearly it touches the rich and poor
of this continent and even of Europe, it
is easy to calcublte from the data we have
herein furnished the reader. Congress
has never given a dollar to any enter
prize which is more national in charac
ter or of greater and more general im
portance to the whole country than that
which the Louisiana Legislature now
asks it to aid and foster. The aid asked
for will convert this State, in a few years,
into a garden, but at the same time It
will benefit every man, woman and
child in the Union.
TIlE TItIBUNAI.? I)DECISION.
The decision of the Electoral Tribu
nal as it just cane to us yesterday was
so tortured and twisted from its true
meaning that there is little wonder it
caused alarm ; but now that we have it
properly explained, it should produce
feelings only of hope.
The decision of the tribunal is that It
is a court, a high court of equity and
not a mere political body without rules
or regulations of ant kind. Those who
pretend that there lany danger in the
decision to our cause forfeit all the
claims of that cause, since they admit
that it is not perfect and without flaw,
legally, judicially and morally. There
are few, however, who are so
timid as to assert t his ; the
general idea, which caused a feeling of
dilsappointment at the Tribunal's deci
sion, Is a belief that while we have plen
ty of evidence to sustain our case in
Florida before the Tribunal, acting ju
liclally and as a court, we are cut off,
precluded, from filing it by this deci
sion. "Here all the error lies."
(ov. Drew sent in, as part of his cer
tifcates, the decision of the Supreme
Court of Florida on the quo warranto
case, and also all the evidence
adduced in that case-evidence which
was amply sufficient to satisfy the Su
preme Court of Florida that the Tilden
electors were elected.
In deciding itself a court, bound by
he rules of the Supreme Court of the
United States, the value of this decision
of the Florida court increases in worth
a thousand fold. As it now stands, the
Florida case is before the Commission
in the manner of an appeal from the
Supreme Court of Florida to the Su
preme Court of the United States. The
Commission may decide:
1. That the decision of the Supreme
Court of Florida is conclusive.
2. If the commission decides to revise
the decision of the Florida court, it
must investigate the same evidence that
was before this court and which wasM
sufficient to satisfy it that Tilden was
In other words, the Florida case has
been disentangled from the question of
Returning Boards and certificates, and
now rests on the point:,"Was the deci
sion of the Supreme Court of Florida,
deciding which were the true certifi
cates, correct ?"
Such a ruling by the Tribunal has
been looked for, and wished for by all
the leading Tilden papers of the North.
The Chicago Times, of last week, in
sisted that "the Commission need only
inquire how the vote stood if can
vassed according to law as deter
mined by the Florida Supreme
Court. The fact will determine
whether anything has been properly
certified and returned. It the votes
were canvassed contrary to law, (as the
Supreme Court has decided,) then the
Hayes electors were not appointed as
directed by the State Legislature, and
the certified lists furnished by Gov.
Stearns are not lawfully certified lists,
but are false lists of false electors
whose false votes cannot be lawfully
