An ap PBBbUBB if now p. mil ok baSMB the QbBBBII asking Itieui to natu?' any tluy or hour when we can see the i EBBE BBil BOYS BS faith that we shall get a ngiit of them. Kcportcr?What, in your judgment, is the motive id refusing to show tho returns! Mr. 1'ike?Well, TBTloSBBtlBlVBI have been avowed l.\ theOoBSSilmid clinig.d l?y the Republicans. niiin ilior Foster says the piiijiose of the Council is !?> gu.inl t:n returns airain>t any BBBBbIIUj llf BS bbj tampered with by the " rabble," as he is pleaded IS term tin- f? \v innocent Senators and Represents UtcBH Ii?< t and their attorneys wlio have applied to see them. Mr. Foster further 6aid that if these BBBSBBH BBSl Representatives saw tbe returns they might t h ing" tlie records at home and then como and wish to eh mge the returns lu re to correspond. Reporter? Do you think this was the real motive ol the CoBBI il as thus BBBBBBsi by Mr. Foster f Mr. 1'ike?How eotihl it he the real motive when, ? m as tiie hint was thrown out by Mr. Foster, the Republican Senators and Representatives pro ( nred ceit died copies of the recoris, and came to the door of the Council Chamber with them, and asked to comparethem with the returns, thus prompt Iv and voluntarily and unanimously putting it out of their power to etiauge the neon Is. Hut when they Raa] done this the refusal to exhibit the retui M w M only repeated in aome other evasive form. Reporter?How about the returns from Demo? cratic towns ? Do you think they have lieen as care? fully guarded from inspection as the returns from Republican low n> f Mi. PlEl?Well, to begin with, it is a very suspi? cious circumstance that. M fur as I can lenni, no DSBBSSffBBa have tome from any purl ot the Plate to Issk alter their returns. Hiiberto, in previous ft hi, the persons coming to Angu?ta to look after returns have lieeu about cipiajly ilividcd between the two partie?, as was natural. I repeat, it is a BMSlBBBBBBMMB1 circumstance that bo Democratic candidates Lave been here at all this vear. I think it easy to interpret the significance of their ab tti lice. Reporter? How T what do you mean t Mr. l'iki ?Why. 1 aBpBOSI tin | fi, 1 that thc.r case is bciug taken care ol by the Fusion State orbcers. I oiinly-Attoriiev Rounds charges directly that the returns were surrepfitio.isly and prematurely opened at the Stale Hou>e, and that Democratic towns all over the State were advised of the errors It their returns, ami that the necessary changes and amendment* w ere made?in some cases ing so lar, It is aai I. as withdraw i.ar tho oiiginal return and substituiiug an entirely new one?and certifying it a? though it were ihe SfisJIBsL 01 000rae this is a most Berum? charge, ami ope that the t.overnor and Council cannot atloid io ignore. Reporter?I* Mr. Rounds a considerate man. or is be bot-hcaocd and BBBBBBSJ to do lash UUBSJil Mr. I'ike?C/uite the contrary. Hslss very cool man, a man of character and ability, who knows what he is talking about ; a I iwycr who has been for several years a successful County-Attorney, ac i BBBBBBl to sc in facts closely, and weigh tho valuo ol erid mce. He never would have made this grave charge without having the laets to back it up. Mr. Koauds has really discovered the key to the Demo bbbs bbbMbbb? Reporter? Do you know any reason w hy returns from D -m'H-ratK towns should tie morecorrcct than Irorn BBBBBBBBBB BBBBB I Mr. 1'ike?None m the world. Surely no one will MBBMBMI that BBS D -moeratic towns in this State are more intelligent than the K< bbMIcbb Iowba, or w,.uld be likely to have more iutellig, ut oflicers. I Know, moreover, that the Republican committees ? IBS8BBM gave special warning to town olbcera to lie careful this year iu their returns. They had t sort of instinct in advance of what we might kart to deal with. Here we have in round DOm ? i ? say live hundred l ilies and towns and plai.ta MSBS in tin Stat?-. Of the thirteen cities, the Re? paid aBBSSBsTisi all but one by absolute majorities, l ...... the .state through, it may b*', counting the aajaJJ towns and plantations, the Fusionists caiTied it luauv m wc did. Now. on the fair doc tiint of '''.itue, there would be as many errors and onits BbbbIb the one < las?- of towns as in the other. It i- p ire BBBBBBBl to maintain BBJ other IBB bit. Reporter?You BbMbBBBBMN t n^o that the Gov tinor and CbbbmH bbbbbI BBBsi to Ignore the CBBIBBS made by Mi. Ro inds. What was juur ex? tet BMBMBBEfl Mr. i'ike?Well, the (iovi nn r and Council cither cannot BBBai to igt.o.-c. or possibly they cannot af loid to ihm >;iu itc. Fciliaps I had better have said 1 ? v cannot afford to investigate. Mr. Rounds did not charge collusion on the part of the Governor and Council, but every one can see that if I Bey pass \>\ s., liiavi- an accusation as this llo-y are in dsBBJN Li? lu-clves ot being held as accessories af;cr the ta<r.

Wnat do you think of that * Mr. PiBl?Well, M to briU'ry. they arc getting along BBBBB w ith their charges than with tin ir BB oi. Bjb Uovemor is a do tor, and the gentlc maowlii lately spoke for the Council is a dot tor; but I should think th y would know enough law to know that secret ex-parte athdavits, with which I L ar the Council Cbaiubel ha> heel, well til 1. d. do Lot afford that kind of proof on which iu this coun? try a man can be deprived of bis rights. BBBBBBBj tin: law forbids the (jovcrnor and Council to pass in any form on the question of eiig:biht$ in the elec? tion ol 8euatora and Representatives. 1 he Supreme Court has n peatedlyaald that ou poinu ouiaide the ri turns, the Governor ami Council have no right to bear evidence ex parte or otherwise, other than tli it expressly spec .lied in the statutes. Reporter-W'hst U there really, in your judgment, in this Umi talk about Republican bfilWf ami ror ruption at the lato Male BlBCtlOB T Mr. 1'iko?I know ttlrttfall about theuse of money.

And while I am on this matter I may s ?y that as a mi min i of the Constitutional Commission in 1K7.*i. I aided in reporting an anti-biibery oath which, if put into the Constitution would have gone far to destiny bribery at elections. Afterwards aa a Representa ti\c from my (own. I carried it through a Repub lican House. The fusir.uists last year had a majority In the Hons.-, but their z< al against bribery did mit. endeavor to manifest itself in legislation. It only ei.-w warm alter tin y had tot beaten and they needed somethingto divert Um public mind Arncn their efforts to defeat the popular vote. Reporter?Wbal do yea understand as to the tin tbod by which the Governor and CooocUprapoaa to delraad the Rewablieane ol their majority of twenty-nine in 1 he Horm and seven in IhoS. n.ite. Mr. t'iki?Whv.il they do it they will insist on technical objections in certain returns, as in Portland. Lewistou.

I his hi ood operation not only throws out a Republican but puts in a Deiooral or Gteenbai ker. And, ol 0001*0, when they have pur? sued this plan far enough to count out the Kepuldi. can BMtfontJ of twenty-nine in the House, the Rc puhliean majority in the Senate will have likewise dieappeored. Reporter? Then yon I hink they lotend fo take the whole State government by this fraud 1 Mr. Pike? Jt would teem so. although I was slow to believe it. The lir.sl clep is tit mum both branches of the Legislature, and that enables i hem to elect their Governor and chaise all the State oBMen and completely ?et aside the verdict ol the jieoplo in Beaten ber.

Reporter? \\ hat if Ibis talk we hear about their seizing ihe electoral vom I Mr. Pike? It is clearly competent for the Legisla? ture to change the mode of ohooaiaa Presidential electors, and if they succeed in installing a fraudu? lent Legislature may they Dot, according to the terms ot the Constitution, 1 hoone the Presidential electOM themselves ami not ullow the people ol Maine to have any voice iu the election at all f It 1? unite apparent that men capable ol defeating tho fail results ol this year's election Would not slop with the job now in hand.

Mr. Singleton d Tin s that he is intrenched in this position and is sus? tained by tiio nearly unanimous sentiment of bis eon-t ttnents.

(nr VBtMBAPE ro Tin: Tidni;?F.| WaEBlEBlOE, DM. 7.?A more careful examina? tion of the It.nik Iteservo bill, as it has been BBB* lishcd by the Hanking and Currency Commit tee of the House, shows that it contains features which wer? overlooked iu the litst reading of it. The bdl requires nil the banks to bold a reserve on circulation as well as on deposits, a requirement that lias not existed in the law sinro June 20, 1870. Tho effect of this pi o vision would be to increase the aggregate reserve required to be held in the banks by about .f.?3.000,0(K), and. as far m that is composed of legal-tender notes nr of coin withdrawn from the Government by the deposit of legal-tender note*, it would be a contraction of the currency. If tho bill should become a law, it would aNo require all country banks to keep otto Mil of all their r? servos in cash (" com ") in their own vaults. Now they are required to keep only t wo-lifths of thoso reserve*, and the BBB> half would m on circulation and deposits, while now it is on deposits alone. The New-York City banks are now allowed to count Clearing House certificates and deposits in other banks as a part ol their reserves. The Uiickner bill wa n Id require one-haif of the increased reserves to consist entirely of cash (''coin''). In the other reserve cities one-half of the icservcs of the banks must now be kept at home ami t he commit fee would require one-hall of that to consist of cash ("coin'.), while at present a part of it in.iv be in ( li urit.g Hoiisecertilic atesand tbehalu' re in other hanks. J'he effects of thc^e features vnuld be to cause a sharp contraction of tm currency, and to cause to be accumulated iu the Treasury a largo amount of greenbacks iu tbe plaeo of the bullion now held.
