Senator Schurz called up the Vienna Exposition bill. Senator Carpenter withdrew his amendment appropriating three huu dred thousand dollars to complete the ! Washington Monument, as it was I doubtful whether the monument could ever lie completed, owing to the soft ii . of the foundations ami grounds. The bill was then passed yeas -"!, nays Is. On motion of Senator Frelinghuysen a bill was pas-ed repealing the act for the relief of certain Indians iu the Hioiix superintendencv. Senator Morton called up his resolu tion instructing Commissioners of Klec tions to inquire into the defects of the present electoral syt.-tn. and the beat means of remedying them. He spoke at length upon" K. He reviewed the constitutional peeiiiw of the ,-tate-in the matter nl chtsising Klectors for President and Vicc-Pre-idcnt, a mat ter entirely Iteyond the jurisdiction of the .National i.overnnient, and entirely without remedy or redress on its part. Whatever disorders, irregularities or failures may occur iu the appointment of Electors "in any State, no provision is anywhere made for contesting the elec tion of Electors, and whatever returns shall be made up, although purchased, in whole or iu part, by fraud or violeuce. must stand and the vote Ite counted upon them if found In time. There is Imminent dauger of a revolution to the nation wherever the result of a Presi dential election is to be determined by the vote of a State in which the choice of Electors has been irregular, or is al leged to have been carried by fraud or violence. There ought to lie such ma chinery of government provided that it would "seem impossible that any man should ever reach the Presidential chair who was not legitimately chosen thereto. He recapitulated tlie transactions with reference to the electoral vote in Wis consin iu 1S5T, wheu the Electors of that State, having been prevented bv a snow-storm from assembling ou the day provided by law, and nevertheless sent up the vote of the State to lie counted, and though objections were made on constitutional grounds, Senator Mason, then 1 resident of the Senate, decided that the two Houses had no jurisdiction over counting the votes, but were met together simply as witnesses of the accu racy of the count and of its result. The vote of Wisconsin was counted, aud the dec:- on of Mason was not af terward called in question, clearly showing that the framers ef the consti tution did not contemplate that the President of the Senate, in opening and counting the vote for President and Vicc-1 'resident, should exercise his dis cretionary or judicial powers in deter mining between the votes of the two sets of electors, or upon the sufficiency or validity of the record of the votes of the electors iu any State, hut that he should perform a merely ministerial act, of which the two Houses were to be wit nesses. These high powers may devolve upon him ex necessitate rei, and what ever decision he may make between the two sets of electors, or ujsiu the suffi ciency or upon the validity of the record of the votes, whether on the evidence of the right of the electors to cast their votes, whether they have ieeii cast in the manner prescribed by the constitu tion, his decision is final. There are saitl to be two sets of electoral votes at this time in the hands of the Vice President from the State of Arkansas, and two from the State of Loui"iaua, aud which ever of these two sets he de cides is the proper electoral record and brings forward, opens ami causes to be counted, must he so received, and from his action there is no appeal. The action of the two Houses in 1821, in regard to count ing the vote of Missouri, is no exception to this view of the power of the Presi dent of the Senate, for the question in that case was not as to any irregulari ty in regard to the electoral vote in Mis souri, but whether Missouri was, at that time, a State in the Union, and entitled to participate in the Presidential elec tion at all, which was also the question in the election of 1817 in regard to In diana, and in 1869 in regard to Georgia. The President of the Senate may indeed be impeached for high crime and misde meanors, should he grossly violate his duty, and thus fraudulently count or re ject electoral votes, but that would not amend the record which had been made uuder the wrong, nor help the Presiden tial candidate who may have been cheated out of office; neither would it protect the nation from disorder and civil war. If it should happen, upon the recurrence of auy of the cases consid ered, that the decision of the President of the Senate should determine the re sult, and give the Presidency to the candidate who would otherwise have been defeated, or throw the election into the House of Representatives, whose candidate had been rejected by the people, and who should be elected by a vote of the States, all can understand the imminent peril in which the nation would be placed by the twenty-second joint rule of the two Houses adopted iu IMS, in the speaker's judgment the most dangerous contrivance to the peace of the nation ever invented by Congress. It is provided that whenever an electoral vote is objected to, the Sen ate shall return to its chamber and each House shall separately consider the ob jection, and the vote shall not be counted unless the two Houses concur to that effect; if the two Houses disagree the vote of the State is lost. This may result in a tie or in theelection of a candidate who would otherwise be de feated, or in preventing either of the candidates from having a ma jority of all the votes, and thus throw ing the election iniome nouse oi Kep resentatlves, each House to decide the question without debate, in a summary manner, without investigation and without adjournment. Here is a pow erful temptation for the House of Repre sentatives, by non-concurrence, to throw the election into its own body, and thus perhaps secure the election of a candidate whe may have been over whelmingly Iteaten at the polls. The two Houses may be under the control of different parties, as in 1867, led by partisan ambition, exaspera ted aud thirsting for power, who are thus enabled by a mere non-concurrence to defeat an election by the people and to seize the administration of the Gov ernment into the hands of their party. He did not believe that the constitution conferred the power upon Congress to make it the right of the people of a State to participate in a Presidential election and to depend upon the contingency of agreement of the two Houses on the settlement of objection. The rule is an invitation to partisans to make cap tious and factious objections. It makes the concurrent action of the two Houses necessary where it should not be; and tosum up its perilous absurdity, its mon strous il logic, its dangerous unconstitu tionality, it places it iu the power of a defeated party, which may happen to have a majority in either House, to de feat an election by the people, and to take the chances of anarchy of a victory by throwing the election into the House of Representatives. But this extraor dinary provision, by which either House is empowered to reject the vote of a State in the election of President, is created by a joint rule of the two Houses. The constitution provides that each House may determine the rules of Its own proceedings that is made of sonductlng its business and doing these "things which by the constitution and laws it has a right to do, but surely lids clause dou't give the two Houses : power by joint rule to enable either House to disfranchise States by reject ing their electoral votes. The provis ions of this rule, to have any validity, must be embraced iu a law enacUd and' which has been submitted to the President for his approval. And even as a law, It would be a most fearful en actment upon the Statute Book, con ferring as It does upon either House power to block the wheels ot Government and plunge the natiou into anarchy. There Is no such express power given to Congress in the constitution, nor is it necessary to carry out any express power therein given, and its exercise woufd be In direct conflict with the known punsises of its framers, to make the executive and legislative depart ments as nearly independent of each other as pos-ible. The theory of the Klectoral College was, that a body of men should be chosen for the express purpose of electing a President and Vice-President, who would be distin guished by their eminent ability and wisdom, and who would be independent of the popular passion, and who would not i.e influenced bv tumult, calial or intrigue, and that in the choice of a President thev would lie left perfectly free to exercise their judgment in the selection of the proper person; in short, the idea as that a small bodgr of select men could be more safely entrusted with the .lection ol a President and: Vice-President than the whole body of j the people. Now that Democracy is better understood, and popular govern ment has been more thoroughly tested, we huve learned that electoral bodies can be more safely'l rusted than small ones; that while it may Ik stssible to corrupt small bodies, it is impossible to corrupt large one-, and that danger of tumuli, which was ever present in the minds of the framers of the constitution, arises chiefly from the exclusion of the masses from power, anil conferring it upou a few. That tlie candidates for electors should be pledged in advance to vote for particular jierson- was not only not con templated by the framers of the Consti tution, but was expressly excluded by their theory. They were to be inde jtendent, and not influenced by previ ous commitlals or engagements, so that, when they came together, they could delilierate with perfect freedom for the best interests of the Republic. How completely this theory has been over turned in practice for more than seven ty years it is unnecessary to recite. The electoral colleges have turued out to le wholly useless. Every reason giveu for their original establishment has abso lutely failed in practice, but, while they arc powerless for good, they may be potent for evil in their election. Er rors may easily be committed, and in very many instances have lieen, while nobody would mistake the names of Grant and Gree ley, changes in the names ou a long list of Electors may occur from errors in printing or fraud .sufficient to reverse the vote of a State. The present Elec toral system circumscribes the power and rights of an individual voter, and prevents him from voting for men of his choice for President and Vice-President, unless there are enough of his way of thinking iu the same State to meet in convention and nominate Electors to represent their views. The present re quirements of the constitution, that all Electors shall meet on the same day in their respective State-, and cast their votes, is liable to accident aud interrup tion, as in Wisconsin in 1 V7. .He would prefer that the President should be elect ed by the people as one community, giving the election to the man who re ceived the highest number of votes, without regard to State lines or munici pal divisions, so that the national char acter should lie fully represented in one department. But in assuming that the smaller States will not consent to an amendment by which the President wouid be elected by the jteople of the Cnited States as" one community, he believed they could have no objec tion to such a change of things a- would bring the election of President directly to the jtetiple of the several States, each State to be divided into as many dis tricts as it has Senators ami Representa tives, each dh-triet to have one vote in the election ot President and Vice-President, and the vote of thtit district to be Boon ted in favor of the candidates for President and Vice-President who re ceive the largest number of votes in it. This would still give to each State the same number of votes it now has in the election of President and Vice-President, the votes, however, to be giveu directly for the candidates by the people, with out the intervention of Electors. The speaker then argued the fairness of the proposed plau, and the intrinsic injustice to the States of the present sys tem and Its peril to the country, and the opportunities it affords for corruption, cabal and intrigue, when au election is thrown into the House of Representatives. But it will be asked what is the remedy? He answered that he would be glad if some method could be devised by which the nation could es cape the danger of having the House of Representatives to elect a President iu that case, but if such is to be the resort, in case no caudidate for the Presidency get a majority of all the votes, he would have liotn Houses of Congress meet in joint convention, and each Senator and Kepieseutative to nave one vote, tins would be in exact harmony with the principles upou which the electiou is now to lie made by the people of the several States. Cnder the new system which he proposed the people of the sev eral States shall vote directly for the President, each State- to have as many districts aud as many votes as it has Senators and "Representatives in Congress, and why the same rule should not be pre served when the election is thrown into Congress it is hard to perceive. His object was to point out to the membere of the Senate and country the dangers that iie.iuthe pathway of anatiou's con tingencies, some of them not remote but near and probable which threaten the country with revolution and the Government with destruction, aud to urg" that the path of duty is the path of safety ; that now in time of peace and of a political calm throughout the nation we should address ourselves to the removal of these lierilous oltstruc- tions that were hidden to the eyes of our fathers. But hope has been brought te our knowledge oy observation and experience, and to sum up in recapitu lation, I would say that if this system of electoral colleges is to be continued some means should be devised by which the election of these electors in the States should be contested ; so that if it has been controlled by fraud or violence, or if there le two sets of elevtors, each claiming the right to cast the vote of the State there mav te some machinery or tribunal provided by which the fraudulent returns could be set aside or corrected and tlie contending claims of different sets of electors are settled in advance of the time when the vote is to be finally counted, and by which the President of the Senate may no longer be left to exercise the danger ous powers that seem to be placet! in his hands by the Constitution, nor the two houses of Congress, by the operation of the twenty -second joint rule. Patriotic men of all parties must rejoice that General Grant has been elected by so large a majority that the electoral votes of l.oui-iana and Arkansas are unim portant to the result, for without intend ing here to express auy opinion in re gard to these votes, I must I i permitted to say that they are surrounded by such circumstances ami attended with so much doubt in the public mind that the peace of the nation might be imperilled if the result of the Presidential election was to lie determined by their plan of dispensing with electoral colleges and electing the President directly by vote of the people of the whole country, as one community, or dividing the States up into districts. It seems to lie a remedy for many of the evils and dangers to which I have referred, but even then some tri bunal should be applied to to settle con tested aud doubtful results in districts and at disputed points, and this tribunal should be removed as far as jsn-sihle from the control of excited parties. This naturally suggests the Supreme Court of the I nited Slates or the district judges of courts of the I'nited States for such a tribunal. Whatever tribunal might be created would require much conside ration iu regard to the details and meth od of operation, into which It is not im portant that I should now attempt to ' enter. The Injustice and danger of an- other election of I President by the House i of Representatives voting by States Is j so glaring that It seems to me that Con ' gress should never rest until it has con i stitutionally presented to the several states, for their adoption, some plan by which It may hereafter be averted. I have therefore proposed that the com mittee shall take the whole subject into consideration, with leave to sit during the vacation and report to the next ses sion the result of their deliberation- and bring forward such measures as may be deemed necessary, whether in the form of statutes or amendments to the Con stitution of the I'nited States. When Senator Morton concluded, Senator Trumbull spoke briefly, agree ing with Senator Morton as to some of the defects and dangers of the existing electoral system, but dissenting from some of his views as to the proier rem edy. The founders of our Government, he said, intended to establish not a pure democracy, but a Republic. It was not intended that a majority should have all the power, and put the Government upon that basis, which would be to change our form of government and to prepare a way for the Democracy.
