TilE ACTION’OF THE UTTJTAgg AT NEW OBLEAN3
\ * • FULLY JUSTIFIED.
WASHiKarojT, D. 0., Jao. 9.—The following:
official dispatch from Qen* Sheridan was receiv
ed here late last night;
Headquarters Military Division of tee
Missouri, New Orleans, Jan. B.— To the Hon .
W. W, Belknap, Secretary of War, Washing
ion, D. 0.: I have the honor to submit the fol
lowing brief report of affairs as they occurred here
in the organisation of the' State Legislature, ox
Jan. 4,1875. Z waa not in command of this mil
itary department until 9 o'clock at night of the
4th inat.; but I fully indorse, and am willing to
be held responsible for,the acts of the military as
conservatorsicf the publicpeace upon that oc
casion. During the few days in which I was in
the city, prior - to the 4th of January,
tho general topic of conversation was
the scenes of bloodshed, that were* liable
to occur on that .day; 'and ,1. repeatedly
heard threats of assassinating the Governor,
and regrets expressed that he waa not killed on
the l4tb of September last; also threats of the
assassination of Republican members of tho
House, in order to secure the election of a
Democratic Speaker. I also know of the kid
napping by banditti of Mr. Cousin, one of the
memhers-elect of the Legislature. In order to
preserve the peace and make the State-House
safe for the peaceable assembling of the Legis
lature, Gen. Emory, upon the requisition of the
Governor, stationed troops in the vicinity of the
building. Owing to these precautions, the Leg
islature assembled in the State-House without
any distnrbSQoe of the peace. At 10 o'clock
William Tigers, Clerk of tho last House of Repre
sentatives, proceeded to cal) the roll, as accord
ing to law he was empowered to do. One hun
dred and two legally-returned members answered
to their names. Of this number fifty-two were
Bopublioabs, and fifty Democrats.
Before entering the House, L. A. Wiltz bad
been selected in caucus as Democratic nominee
for Speaker, and Michael Hahn as tho Repub
lican nominee. Tigers had not finished an
nouncing the result when, one of the members,
Billen, of Lafourche, nominated L. A. Wiltz for
temporary Speaker. Tigers promptly declared
the motion out of order at that time, when some
one put the question, and amid cheers on tho
Democratic side of the House, Wiltz dashed on
the rostrum, pushed aside Tigers, seized the
Speaker's choir and gavel, and declared him
self Speaker. A protest against this arbitrary
and unlawful proceeding was promptly made by
members of the majority; but Wiltz gave
no attention to tho protests, and on a
motion from some one on the Democratic
side of the House, it was declared
that one Trezev&nt was nominated and
elected Clerk of the House. Trezevaut at once
sprang forward and occupied the Clerk's chair
amidst the wildest confusion over the whole
House. Mayor Wiltz then again; on another
nomination from the Democratic side of the
House declared one Blood elected Sergeant-at-
Anns, and ordered & certain number of assist
ants to be appointed.
Instantly a largo number of men throughout
the hall, who hod been admitted on various pre
texts, each as reporters, and members, friends
and spectators, turned down tho lapols of their
coats, upon which were pinned bine ribbon
badges, on which wore printed in goldthe words,
*» Assistant Scrgeant-at-Arms,” and the Assem
bly was in the possession of the minority, and
the White League of Louisiana had made
good its threat of seizing the House,
Many of the assistant Sergeouts-at-Anns
being well known as Captains of the
White League companies in this city. Notwith
standing the suddenness of this movement,
leading Republican members had not failed to
protest ogain and again against this revolution
ary action of the minority; but all to no pur
pose, and many of the Republicans rose and left
tho House in a body, together with Clerk Tigers,
who carried with him the original roll of the
House, as returned by the Secretary of State.
The excitement was now very great, and the
acting Speaker directed the Sergeant-at-Anns
to prevent the egress or ingress of members or
others, and several exciting scuffles, in which
knives and pistols were drawn, took place. For
a few momenta it seemed as if bloodshed would
ensue. At this Juncture, M. Dupre, Democratic
member from Orleans Parish, moved that tho
military of the General Government bo invoked
to preserve the peace, and that a committee bo
appointed to wait on Gen. De Trobriand, com
manding officer of tho United States troops sta
tioned Jat the State-House, and request his as
sistance in clearing the lobby. The motion was
adopted. A committee of five, of which Dupre
was made Chairman, was sent to wait upon Gen.
De Trobriand, and soon returned with that offi
cer, who was accompanied by one of his staff
officers. As Gen. De Trobriand walked down to
tho Speaker's desk, loud applause burst from
the Democratic side of (he Bouse . > Gen. De Tro
briaud asked tho Acting Speaker if it was not
possible for him to preserve order without ap
pealing to Rim to preserve order as a United States
army officer. Wiltz said it was not / whereupon
tho General proceeded to the lobby, and, address
ing a few words to tho excited crowd, peace was
restored at once. On motion of Dapre, Mr.
Wiltz, in the name of the General Assembly of
the State of Louisiana, thanked Gen. De Trobri
and for his interference in behalf of law and or
der, and tho General withdrew. The Republic
ans bad now generally withdrawn from the hall,
and united in signing a the Governor,

SHERIDAN’SSTORY.
>*l4 wP*
stating their grievances* and asking bis aid,
which petition, signed by Jifiy-iieo legally re
turned members of the House, is in my
possession. Immediately subsequent to tho
action of Wilts in. ■> ejecting the Clerk
of . the old House,*' Mr. Billien moved
that tho following persons *• be sworn in and
seated as members: A. Quinn, of
the Parish of Avayeiloo; J. J. Horan, A. I>.
Land, and Thomas R. Vaughan, of the Parish of
Caddo; J. Jeffries, R. L. Luckett, and G. W.
Stafford, of the Parish of Rap Kies'; and William
r. SChwing, of the Pansii of Iberia, who bad not
been relumed by the .Becoming Hoard, and thev
were accordingly sworn in by Wiltz. and took
their seals on'tho floor as members of the House.
A motion was now made that the House proceed
with its permanent organization, and according
ly tho roll was called by Trczivaut, Acting Clerk,
and Wiltz was declared Speaker, and Trezirant
Clerk of tho House. .
Acting on the protest msde by the majority of
the House, the Governor now requested the
commanding General of the Department to aid
him in restoring order end enable the legally re
turned members of the House to proceed with its
organization according to law. This request was
reasonable, and in accordance with law. Re
membering, vividly, the terrible massacro that
took place m this city on the assembling of the
Constitutional Convention in 1366. at Mechanics’
Institute, and believing that the Uvea of mem
bers of the Legislature were, ot would be, en
dangered in case .an organization under the law
was attempted, the posse was furnished, with
the request. that care shonld.be taken
that no member of the Legislature
returned by the Returning Board
should.be ejected from tbo floor. This military
posso performed its duty under directions from
tho Governor of the State, and removed from
the floor of the House those persons who bad
been illegally seated, and who had no legal
right to be there, whereupon the Democrats rose
and left the House, and the remaining members
proceeded to effect an organization under the
State laws. In all the turmoil, in which blood
shed was imminent, tho military posse behaved
with groat discretion. When Wiltz, the usurp
ing Speaker of the Houso, called for troops to
prevent bloodshed, they were given him. When
the Governor of the State called for a posse for
the same purpose, and to enforce the law, it was
furnished also. Had this not been dono, it is
my Arm belief that scenes of bloodshed would
have ensued. (SignedJ P, B. Shebidan,

SHERIDAN INTERVIEWED.

ti pedal Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune.
New Orleans, La,, Jan. 9.— Tub Tbibune
representative thi« evening visited Gen. Sheri
dan, who stated that when he came to this city
he found a very peculiar state of affairs. He
found a secret organization here so powerful
that there seemed no one ablo to oops with it.
The State Government was not strong enough
to meet it, and the fear of ostracism and loss of
business was so great.that merchants and busi
ness men not only did not dare attack it, but,
when it was attacked, appeared as its defenders.
Murder for political reasons was considered no
This organization was so strong that it
appeared as if the people bad got used to it, and
there seemed to be no effort to counteract its
dangerous influence. Either from fear of person
al injury or loss of trade, or social ostracism,
people avoided coming in contact with (his White
League. The General states that be

and social ostr&cism.has no terrors for him,- and.
hVhauno trade to lose, and he believes himself
to be the proper person to wrestle with the
White League. In short, he has made nphls
mind id break it up. He believes its existence
a menace to the peace cf this State and to that of
the country, and it should not be tolerated.
How the General is going to work at it he did
not explain, but, although his demeanor was
very quiet, be was unmistakably in earnest. It
is probable tbe General rolies on legislation by
Congress to give him authority to go to work.
NEW ORLEANS NOTES.
JUDGE Dlßßli£*S IiETIBB.
Special Dispatch to The Chicago TrCutnit
New Obxsass, Jan. 9. —The letter of Judge
Dibble, Araistant Attorney-General, sent you
last night, has been the subject of no little com
ment to-day. The general opinion is that Dibble
hss put his foot in it. He wrote his letter and
published it without consulting Got. Kellogg* or
any other of tbe loading Bepublicans, except
perhaps Congressman Morey, who, it is said,
has left for Washington With a bill in hia pocket
designed to carry out tho line o i policy fore
shadowed in Judge Dibble's letter. In conver
sation with Got. Kellogg this morning, be stated
to The Tbibune correspondent that hia views
were diametrically opposed to those expressed
by Judge Dibble regarding the status of the
State Government.
The Governor this morning received & dis
patch from 'Aity.-Geu. Held, at present in
Washington, asking whether ho (Gov. Kellogg)
indorsed Judgo Dibble's letter. In reply the
Governor emphatically denied holding the views
expressed by the Judge, and stated that it was
published without consultation with him or
other leading Republicans. It did not appear
in tho Republican this morning, but Wafl pub
lished iu the Democratic city papers. Mr. Dib
ble is a very young man, but has hold important
positions in tho State for years, and at the last
election was a candidate for Congress in the
Second District, and was defeated. It is thought
he would like to try it over again, but from
present appearances it la doubtful whether hp
would have the opportunity, even if the State
were to be entirely reconstructed. The feeling
among Republicans m office is so strong against
him that he may be forced from tbe position he
now occupies as Assistant Attorney-General in
name and Attorney-General in fact. His term
of office is optional with tho Governor. Theje
would, no doubt, be considerable
DEMOOEATIO OPPOSITION TO A NEW ELECTION,
as well as from Bepnblicans. All who wore de
clared elected, and all who claim to have been
elected, would oppose it. Thoro is, by no means,
that disposition on tho part of Democrats to do
what is best for the good of the State, aa la pro
tended, and a new election, if it should bo, fairly
conducted, would probably meet tho approval of
tho rank and file of both parties. Howanyother
moans can be devised that will bring about peace
it is impossible to see.

both Houses. A committee was appointed to
draft a memorial in answer to that of the Demo

correction.
A former dispatch to Tub Tribune, which
stated that a member of Congress was astonished
at Gen. Emory’s testimony before the Congres
sional Committee, to the effect that ho CGen.
Emory) had no fault to find with the White
League, should have read as follows: “Gon.
Emory was so well convinced in September last
of the existence of a plot on the part of the
White League organization to capture him
self (Gen. Emory) and staff, or do him
bodily injury, that, at his request, Ad
miral Mullanoy kept steam on his little
steam launch for days together to be used for
taking Gen. Emory and staff on board of the
war vessels anchored in the harbor in case an at
tempt was mado at its fulfillment."
The Tribune incorrectly printed it as a plot to
capture Gen. Sheridan.
Tbe Republicans of tho dty will, on Monday
evening, nold an immense meeting to approve
Gen. Sheridan's course since his arrival here.

The bill which Congressmen Morey takes with
him to Washington provides for the continu
ance of tbe present State Government as a pro
visional Government until the time for the reg
ular election.

is known that for soma timo he has been in con
fidential oommunication with tho leaders of tho.
Conservative caucus. There evidently is t
a break between Dibble and Kellogg,.
as Attorney-General Piekl bos received a
dispatch ordering him to New Orleans
to take charge of his office. This would not be
necessary if Dibble had not practically abandon

This proposition la rapidly growing in favor in.
the House, but it is admitted that tho oxperi
iment is a verv dangerous one. It* cannot bo
doubted that' the beat representatives of :

: favor a new election. Unfortunately, there
are some indications of a disagreement between.
the Senate and the House upon this subject.
The Republican Senators held a caucus of sev
eral hoars to-day. The debate upon Louisiana
was extended'and animated. No definite vote
was taken npon any of the propositions submit
ted, but it is known that Ibo Republican Sen
ators, with the single exception of Matt
Carpenter, decided that they would
sustain tbe President in bis position
toward Louisiana. Carpenter emphatically
insisted that a new election is the only solution
to tbe problem. Ho made the statement that
if. this issue waa not now met, it would inevita
bly arise in the Electoral Cdiiego in 1877, and tho
consequences then might bo more serious. No
definite vote was taken in tins caucus. Adjourn
