The Charleston Election Bill-Ran aler's
Remarks in its Favor-The Vote on

structions for County Commissioners

Southern Trans-Continental Railroad.
[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. J
COLUMBIA, S. C., February 18.-The event of
to-day was the discussion in the House of the
Charleston Election bill.. The debate though,
lively, and at times rather of a personal cha?
racter, elicited no new arguments. It was coa
fined entirely to the Republioan side of tho
House, All the Democrats and five Republi?
cans voted against the bill. The latter were,
DeLarge, ot Charleston; Elliott, of Barnwell;
Feriter, of Samter; Hyde, of Geeonvillo, and
Stoober, of Marion. Ibo speeches were all
brief owing probably to the fact that the mer?
its and demerits of the bill had already been
fully canvassed in the S mate, and the debate
cut short by Brodie, of Charleston, calling for
the previous question, which was almost
Ransior, of Charleston, said that they all
know tho fact that an election had been held.
It was admitted that there wore irregularities
or informalities in tho conduct of tho election,
and the General Assembly is asked to validate
the election, notwithstanding those irregulari?
ties, and to award to the persons receiving the
highest number of votes tho offices which they
claimed, and to which they wore entitled. For
lnmselt he hud decided how he should vote on
tho question of agreeing to the bill. He had
votea for it m the committee, and he desired
to Bay that his was no hasty decision. He felt
it to be his duty as a representative of the
people, as owing it to his constituents who
sent hun here, and also in consideration of the
questions raised as to the right of the General
Assembly to net in this rr<attar, to give
tao reasons for the vote which he
should give io support of the bill.
The bill belora the House and tho subject
matter bas agitated the community of Charl os
ioa for three months, if not longer. As a mem?
ber of that community it bad occasioned him
much anxioty. He knew of no event iu the
City of Charleston which had given rise to
moro excitement and feeling of direct, deter?
mined opposition on both sidos. Identified
with tho city, it was but a natural desire ou his
part to see ail its people, of all classes, pros?
perous, happy and contented. When, there?
fore, he witnessed on the ono hand a political
pany, detoi mined on exclusive representation
and cons?quent control, ovou making it a
question of oolor, and tho othor side struggling
iut justice, equally determined, he feared tho
cons?quence? that might follow, Their Dem?
ocratic friends in Charleston desired that
tho Republicans shouid not consider this
a question of party, while they under
that delusive name .' Conservative" were
determined and acted strictly as a party.
That was on their part, to say the least, an un?
pardonable mistake. He did not lay claim to
any legal ability, but would endeavor to meet
tho argument used by some, that this matter
should be loft io the courts. The eleotioa was
held on the 10th or November, 1868. under the
provisions ?rf un feet to provide for the eiectlun
of officers of incorporated cities and towns of
the State of South Carolina. It cannot be de?
nied tbat tho most gigantic efforts were made
in this, aa in other elections in this State, un?
der the Reconstruction acts, to defeat the Be
publican party. The case before them upon
V'hich they were now called to take action, is
ou? of those causes growing out of the dam?
nable efforts and designs ot parties opposed to
this entire programme of reconstruction. The
election was held in Charleston; a protest was
. submitted and entertained. The Aoting Mayor
and Aldermen had un investigation, and pro
te stn charge that the election was null and
void on account of tho illogal conduct of some
of the managers, and propone to contest tho
tier to of a majority of tbObe persons who claim
to bi- (and were) duly elected at that eleotion.
The fifth section of the act provides, "the
managers of < loci iona shall decide contested
casca hubj c. to the ultim tte decisiou of the
Board of Aidermon or waidens when organie
od, except when tho electiou of a majority of
the personB voted for aro contested or tho
managers charged with illegal conduct, in
whiou case tbo rc.unie, together with tho bal?
lots, shall bo examined und tho case investi
gated by tbo Acting Boaid of Alderman, who
shall declare tho election; and their decision
shall be binding upon ail parties,"
It was the duty then ofthat Mayor and Board
of Aldermen, upo-, receiving the roturas of the
manager*, to publish the same according to the
aot and issuo oom neaten by which those re?
ceiving the highest number of votes would bo,
m possession of pr ima fnove evidence of their
oleciion. ihe seats of a m ijority of the Board
were contested, br the managers charged with
illegal oonduot. It whs then competent tor
ihe Board ol Alder?ssa, to examine the returns
with the ballots.
It was, perhaps, not necessary to dwell on
tho faot that the return? were not, in the first
instanoo, published aa direoted to be done by
law, or, aofOudly, the sent* of a majority bf
those receiving the highest number of vott a
were not cotrtosted, wu it is important
and necessary to discover th? gis? of the
Whole matter to ascertain whether the allega?
tion ot fraud ia true; whether tbs managers
wero guilty of illegal conduct tmf?ioient to in
val'dato tho election, and if BO, what is tho
meaning and intent of tho law and the power
and duties of the Board of Aldermen. The
rot urn to tho writ of mandamus by tho Board
of Aldermen, saying that certain irregularities
had occurred in the election, was decided by
tho Supremo Court as an insufficient return,
and thus, was decided this question as submit?
ted bv the Council.
DoLarge. Will tho gentleman yield for a
Bansier. No. sir. Af tor tho court settled
that question they issued a peremptory writ,
to wbioh the Board responded, declaring
whorecoivpd the highest number of vo?.00 and
tho namos of the persons receiving them. He
contended that tho decision of the court, by
the faots submitted by counsel, provos that
the irregularities themselves woro not nu (Vi?
cient to invalidate the election. The return to
tho peremptory writ proves that matter. Upon
that both parties ceasod furthor efforts in the
?nse before the court.
Now whothor under those circumstances the
Legislature had a right to interfere, had given
him considerable concern and thoucht. Ho
had looked at it from a Ropublioan standpoint,
vet he was not for urgiug or even aiding this
General Assembly to pass unconstitutional
measures which they had no right to pass.
The press ot Charleston has labored to con?
vince the Oonoml Assembly that it had no
right to interfere 111 this matter. They have
romindod tho Legislature that it would bo
against the constitution to pass this bill. Thoy
have warned tho General Assembly of the
dangorofoue brauch ot tho State Government
encroaching on tho other.
There is, he said, no caso before tho courts.
Tho inquiry thou is, can the General Assombly
pass a bili that will accomplish the purpose
sought for to seat tho officers eleotod ? Ho
was tully satisfied that tho bdl before them was
fullv sufficient for that purpose. He was boro
to support tho measure and to advocate its
passage by the House. It wa3 proposed to
charlo fifty dollars a day for o very day that
tho*parties now in possession, hold over. Tho
parties will then bo bable for a violation of
law, and will have to pay a fino, and it can bo
recovored in an action for debt.
He regretted the matter bad gone so far;
knew thc feeling of the people and the press
on this subject, and could hope that tho Re?
publican p a ty had mado such selection as to
satisfy all parties concerned, so that crimina?
tion and recrimination coutd havo been stop?
The Republican party is not responsible for
this state of things in Charleston. Let it fall
on those who aro resi onsible. It is known that
almost every office sought to be filled by Re?
publicans, in or out of Oh arl os ton, elective
under the Reconstruction acts, has been made
a matter ot litigation. Tho (rentlcman at [p's
right (W. J. McKinlay) bas been elected by tho
General Assembly to thc eftice of register of
mesno conveyance, and is kept out of it forty
days by ono of tue opposite party. He hoped
the bill would pass without the opposition of a
Bingie member of the House. He appealed to
thoir good sense and to principle, and he voted
for it on the seoro of principle and justice.
Nash, of Kershaw, followed in a brief but
forcible speech, saying that ho had given tho
bill his most anxious consideration, and was
fully satisfied of its j u. lice.
Feriter, of Sumter, made an eloquent speech
against the passago ot such a bill. He regard?
ed it as unconstitutional and inconsistent
with the act passed by the General Assembly,
under which tho election was held. He also
warned members against establishing a prece?
dent which 111 tho future might react with ter?
rible force upon themselves.
DeLargo followed in an earnost and impas?
sioned speech. He regretted the introduction
of the bitl ; believed it would pass, but bo de?
sired to be recorded ns raising his voice
against it. It was both an unwise and danger?
ous precedent, and would bring no good to tho
Republican party. It was a delusion, a cheat
aud a snare. He thought there would bo no
more chance of Pillsbury aud bis Aldermen io
be Boated under this bili than for a mau to be
struck by lightning, under a cloudless ?ky and
a sunshiny day. If the bill would do what its
friends say, he might vote for it. He knew Ins
constituents desired the passago of this bill,
bub it was no good. They were only misled.
He ?poko of threats and intimidation having
been used towards him, but defied any party to
causo him to swerve from the line of duty,
even undor the lash of tho party whip.
Bosomon, of Charleston, followed, waimly
advocating the passapo of the bill.
AL the conclusion ot Bosemon's speech, Bro?
die obtained the floor, advocated the passage
of the bill, and called the previous question.
I'be ct.ll was sustained, and, after some re?
marks bv Whipper and Tomlinson in support
of the bill-Tomlinsons aying that Mayor Clark
bad always been a Copperhead-Elliott was al?
lowed to explain his vote, and stated that he
had been conscientiously opposed to the bill
from its introduction.
