General Grant seem* to be losing h
enigmatical character in some respect
lie is no longer the Silent Man that I
was. He talks now to the new*pap<
men, which, of course, is pretty neartl
satuu thing as making speeches or writir
letter*, lie does the most of this talkir
on Sundays of late. lie dismisses tl
office seekers and takes up with the prti
on that day a? being more in the line <
duty, and, therefore, better befitting tli
proprieties of the Sabbath. Last Sunda
he had a conversation with the Washinj
ton reporter of the New York Tribun
He expressed himself forcibly, am) y<
with proper reserve in regard tothesitui
lion in the South. In speaking of tl
late election in that section he repeat!
what he said on a previous occasio
namely, that he does not think a fa
election, where the people came to 111
polls and voted as they pleased, as the
would do in New England, has take
place in any of the Southern States, ei
cept perhaps iu Delaware. He think
I that if a free flection could have been j
0 helil in Maryland at leant three Kepub-1
lican Representatives could have been I
clected to Congress from that Slate. InjT
Mississippi ho believes the Republican |
f majority to l?e at least 35,000. Whereas j Q
0 the Democratic majority returned for the
' recent election was 68,000. In Alabauu ..
>> and Arkansas he has no doubt that there
is also a legitimate Republican majority.
* Commenting on the intensity of political f
'? feeling in a large portion of the South, he
expressed the belief that if by any mean* p
" the national contest shall finally be rat*
tied in favor of Governor Tildeu no Re>
publican State government in the South T
11 would be able to stand for 24 hours. The
* Democratic contestants in South Caroli*
1 naand Louisiana will no doubt, he said, .
? hold on until the Presidential contest is
r tinally disposed of; if it becomes apparent
that Governor Hayes will be the next
1 President, the Democrats will submit
1 and cease their active opposition to the ^
* Republican State governments; if, on the
; other hand, Governor Tilden is declared
* to he the President, they will at once
; proceed to asrart themselves, and the
Republican officials will be fortunate if
' they are allowed to leave the States at all. m
"The President spoke of Hampton's f*
J letter to Governor Hayes, which he had M
) reud in the newspapers yesterday. He
j was evidently not favorably impressed ti1
by it, and remarked that it was in strict "*1
" keeping with the other acta of Hampton. ?n
'; He does nut think, however, that any l,,;
lf4.1l authority for the reversal of the decision
of the South Carolina election can
be found. The canvass by the Legisla* M
f ture, which was authorized by law to de* to
s claro the result of the vote for Governor
and other Statu officials, could not be set
aside, and it seemed to him that spite of It
anything the Democrats may do t he sue- re
cess of Chamberlain has been definitelv fo
* #?f
"The President had something to say J?
in regard to the counting of the electoral
vote and the difference of opinion now ,,
existing between the two House* of Cons
gress as to the mode in which thin shall f'.n
t l>e done, lie said that while he ha* no
disposition to pant judgement on the ra
merits of this controversy, it seems to
him as if the decision of it and the cono
"etjuent announcement of the result of
v the election will not take place before P?
noon on the 4th of March, 1877, at IJi'
which time hin term of office will expire.
l? He believe* that the Constitution and the .
law Kive the President of the Senate eI<
r. the power to often and to count the elec- ve
toral votes; but admit* that precedent ,,
ha* established the right of either House .
to object to the counting of the votR of a u.(
.State. He cite* one or two early in- J'1
stance* in which this right has been ac- ~
corded, and called attention to the iini- H.'
v form practice ever since of the seperation
\ of the two House* whenever any question e*
has arisen in the joint convention, and *
e their independent action upon it. lie- w'
it licving that objection* will l?e made to a"
X counting the vote of one or more Slates
on the 14th of February next, and that 8tl
r such a separation of the two House* will ..
take place, he thinks that the discussion 1
I- which will ensue is very likely to cone
tintie during the whole of the two weeks p
, which will intervene before the 4th of ,e'
' March, and that the latter day will ar- t0.
11 rive before any agreement upon them is **"
reached. In such an event he i* very
,e positive in his opinion that under the
Constitution mid the act of 1792 the Pre*- d?
'* ident of tliu Senate will become the acting th
ir President, and will be sworn in as such. Is
li. Hut while the official term of the IS
,e President will then expire, that of the <1
. heads of the executive departments will L'
continue uninterrupted. The President la
'f has caused a full investigation of thb? iti
matter to l>e made by hi* legal advisers, mi
and the conclusion reached i* that all
* Cabinet officers except the Postmaster M
General continue to act until their sue- Pi
cessoraari; appointed. The term of the re
Postmniter General is limited by law to of
thirty days after this beginning of the new J?
Administration. The Postoftice Depart- ce
ment wa* for many yearn provided for gr
, from time to time by special legislative bu
enactment, and the officer who presided ti<
? over it did not participate in the deliber- bo
i. ations of the Cabinet until during the nc
Administration of President Jackflon. If cii
the President of the Senate should there- de
fore become the acting President of the th
I, United States, General Grant says he ac
u would find himself in possession of every
[. facility for continuing and conducting in
5* ment, and that ha would not be embar- M
e raased by necessary change*. as would be or
it the case if the terms of Cabinet officer* th
n necessarily expired on the 4th of March. ce
it The President waa asked whether an
extra aewion of Congreaa would be called ?u
to meet on or after the 4th of March. ^
K lie said in reply that it waa customary
;e for the outgoing President to call the jn
lf Senate together at an early day after th? :0|
t inauguration of the new Executive, for J
the convenience of his successor, bill Ls
' was in doubt as to his power to call an
tf, extra session of the House, and would
d take no action in the premise# Bhould oc- q,
casion for an extra session of the House
' ariso uutil the matter had been fully in*
,f vestigated. It seemed to him, however, jj,
>t that as the Congress of which the House m!
r is a component part expires on the same
|(, day with his own official life, it would be 4Q
found that, no matter what the emerr?
gency might be, he had no right to
e cali 'the members of the next House ta
?f together. The embarrassment would m
jl be oi'casioned by his failure to do ho, as ^
the acting President could promptly con- 0[
r veno the Forty-fifth Congress for the Vf
is transaction oi any business which he aj
:t might think made a session of it neces- t0
|(. sary. If the Forty-fifth Congress should jj,
meet during the "spring, he thought it re
very likely that the question of the recent
>c Presidential election might become a q,
> matter of consideration, and that that ^
body might determine to hold a new elec.
tion earlier than the lime provided for ,ja
in tho act of 1792. Congress, he said,
1 might provide for holding the election j.|(
in June, and for the inauguration of the (jt
new President on the 4th of July, which, W1
be believed, would be more satisfactory,
j, ns it would shorten the time of the in- p
^ terregnuni.

nin, the Oregon Democratic clector, testified
before the Senate committee to day. J
lie had not made any arrangement with
any person or persona whereby the electoral
certificates were to be handed to
him by the Secretary ol State; that. 1m
waa convinced lit was lawfully appointed
to replact Dr. Watts, and thai lie i>ut the i
certificates in hi* Docket because he was '1
afraid they would be taken from him by t
Odell and others. He had refused to e
come to Washington an a messenger of c
the Electoral College unleaa he should ?
receive $3,000 for expense*, and the b
money wa? furnished him. It waa mixed t
he supposed by subscription among the f>
Oregon Democrats. ii
Mr. Billinger,Chairman of the Demo*
oratic Committee, informed wltnecs the
day before he started for Washington '
that he (Billinger) had $2,800, and the t
additional $200 to make the $3,000 re- a
quired was rnixed and a note signed by c
Billinger and witness, which wan deport- u
ited at the banking house of Ladd & Til- c

on the street in Portland about ten day* h
previous to the meeting uf the Electoral fi
College and informed him that a ii
gentleman was desirous of seeing him "
(Cronin) at the otlice of Judge Strong. 1
Witness refused to go and told Billinger '1
that whatever was done in this electoral |>
muddle must he done by others than him* V
self. Witness afterward* went to Strong's t<
otlice and there met Patrick, who aaid K
that lie had heard that witneps had said ?
that if a certificate a* an elector wan is- (>

his mind, and Patrick naid to wiliiesx, "if n
Tilden in President he will ^ive you any- w
thing you want." Witness informed Pat- K
rick that if he (Patrick) wan acquainted o
with Tilden, he might tell him that h
he had nothing to give which he il
(Cronin) wanted. Witness was a little ti
iniri-v ?l Putrlrlr f..? lullf!.. -
man nor. Patrick informed the witness
that he supposed tho reason he (Patrick) e
had been sent to Oregon was that he was
the fnrtherest on? weft. The witness did
not know what Patrick meant by thin re- *
mark, ho had heard that Patrick m
Superintendent of a mine in Colorado, a
Patrick said nothing about money in *
hi* inter view with the wituew.The witness hi
never saw Patrick excent on the 0110 oc- n
canton mentioned, and hail no conversa- n
lion with IJillinger about Patrick. The
witne-a had received no messages from tineast
in relation to the electoral muddle
before seeing Patrick. The witness knew
of a Dimond in new York; think* he is a
banker. After the electoral college had ,,
met and adjourned, witness saw a dispatch
signed Bristow, which said it m important

after looking up the law and after hear- ^
ing ef the actions of the South Carolina, l'
Florida and Louisiana Returning Board*. *

sti- coroneb'h inquest.
ril- The inquest commenced thi-4 morning
rn- atlOo'clock. The first witness wanCJ. A.
rial Knapp, chief engineer of the tire demy
pariment, who testified as follows: One
i a engine was on the spot when I arrived,
by about 8:30. This engine, the Protection,
ana had a large amount of hose. When i
out arrived at the fire I asked Mr. Strong,
ies. station agent for the Erie company,which
e?e side we should throw water from. Mr.
Hr. Strong said he did not wsnt any water;
irn that he wanted help to get the people out.
tri- Knew there wax a pipe at the pump house
uld to which hose might have filled; the enzed
gineer was there and steam was up. Witud
ness did not order water thrown because
oh- ordered not to, was in command of the
do Fire Department. The wreck was burnbe
ingconsiderably when he arrived, The
is la*l persou taken out alive wrh a half
Jry hour after his arrival. He thiuks the
?ey bodies could have been saved so that
hat they might have been recognized by the
ich friends, could they have sent two streams
on the fire. All h<| saw done towards
putting out the lire was calling for buckn(j,
ets. He thinks there wero persona
enough to put out the fire. Have no
other reason than that stated for not
' throwing water on the tire. No one took
any effort to hinder the witness from
hat throwing water. There were no instruc*
. ut lions that he should not throw water in
Ire. order that .the bodies might not
re. be recognized. He had a perfect
ini- right to throw water notwithstanding
what Mr. Htrong said, lie simply
ihoucliL that if thev didn't want watpr
thown lie didn't want to throw any. He
heard groans from the wreck and knew
he had a right to throw water, hut had
I no reason fur not throwing it except
that Mr.Strong told him not to. Hi* exme>
citement wan very great, but knew what
ler> he ought to do. Should have thrown water
if he had not been prevented by thestatents
ment of Strong.
"us The next witness was A. A. Strong,
in Agent. He heard of the accident
ilea immediately on its occurrence and
l>e hastened to the bridge. He devoted
all himself principally to caring for the
ior wuunded, and ordered a road to be broken
!*tH through the snow to the top of the hill,
the that the injured mi^ht be carried up. At
ing the time ot his arrival at the scene the
try (ire was in progress the whole length of
'he the wreck. The appliances of the comthe
pany for pulling out tires at (he Htalion
in Hi the time of the accident were three
ted hydrants and no hose. He received no
ice. orders from the company except to do
ugH all in his power to rescue the wounded
of and get them to places of safely. He rei**
ceived no instructions from any source
as, not to put water on (he fire, and did not
an know of any such orders being received
ke- by any one. No objection was made
i of to the use of the appliances at the depot
ted for putting out fire. Can't say why the
lib- bone was not attached for the purpose
of throwing water oilier than that there
were no orders given by the officials ofi
the tire company. When Mr. Knapp was
seen by witness the effect of (browing
tch water would have been undoubtedly to
ia- preserve some of the bodies so that thev
in could have been recognised. He don't
iu, believe any lives coulu have been saved,
,191 as there were no shrieks heard when he
ve, arrived. He made no effort to control
ed, the action of the fire department in regard
mi to the wreck.
