Herald Steam Printing House. The Herald Steam Printing House Is not surpassed by any Job Printing otllce on lUe Pacific Coast, outside of San Fran eiuco. In facilities for doing Job work Low prices, good work ami expedition may be railed upon at this office. As we hare always been of the number who believed that tho Chi lian c and fraud and contempt of the will of tbe people which tbe Republicans displayed in the last Presidential election have materi ally complicated our politics, cer tain flippant questions, in the spirit of Tweed's famous "What aro you going to do about it?" which have been addressed to us do not embar rass us in the lease. We are pain fully aware of the difficulties which beset tho American people In the line of asserting themselves as a genuine Republic, cherishing, above all things, the right to elect their President. We believe that nobody but the witches themselves were responsible for the compound ing of n certain bell broth ou a bleak Scottish moor, which was so fateful to Macbeth. We contributed none of the ingredients of the Elec toral infamy. There was not an element of legality in tbe whole thing, both because it was extra constitutional and because it was done under duress—the duress of unprincipled men who controlled the army. Over all impends the time-honored maxim, consecrated from the times of the Pandects even, that fraud vitiates every thing. Two things we do know. Tbo first is that even the act which constituted tbe Electoral Commis sion expressly reserved the rights of either of the parties to the Presi dential controversy. If the people of the United States desire lo rem edy a gross wrong they can very easily find a method. If it shall prove, as the result, of an investiga tion of the Florida and Louisiana frauds, that Mr. Hayes, through his agents, participated in the crime, and that he afterwards re warded those agents and the crim inals who made him President with o3ice, liia impeachment aud re moval from office would be de manded by the voice of tho country, irrespective of politics. But tills is but a mluor view of the subject. If the result of an investigation shall disclose the fiict, beyond contro versy, that Mr. Tilden and not Mr. Hayes was elected President, a res olution of both Houses lo that ef fect would reach the evil and the remedy at a hound. The theory of tbe Constitution of the United States is lhat Congress shall, having iv view the de cision of the people, ex pressed in the Electoral Colleges of tlie several States, declare who is President. Congrevs is to accord this recognition to the man who has a majority—not a per jured ami suborned majority—of the electoral votes. The fact that, under exceptional circumstance.', and under a misapprehension of the truth, Congress had made v wroug proclamation of the result, by no means precludes that ho ly from repairing tlie wrong and giv ing the rightful efficacy to the voice of the people. —We have written thus much as to tho logical aspects of the ques tion. We will adl a few more words. The Herald ha-i never committed itself to the proposition that Hayes must necessarily ba re moved as a result of this investiga tion. We firmly believe Iliac he ought to be; but, whether he is or no, the people have a right to know the full details of the shame ful frauds by which they have been cozzmed, and Ihey should be instructed as lo the extreme danger of surrendering the control of the government, in any of its branch es, to the Republican party until it has been thoroughly chastened. We know of no party which is so mush In noed of experiencing the "sweet and bitter uses of adversi ty" as the Republican party. For all we know, it may bo in Hayes to continue to present a cheek of brass lo tho indignant voters of the United States; but, if ho stays in office, he will be compelled to wear his honors as a very shirt of Nes ' f-Ui. A PABBOT cry at regular inter vals la flashed over the telegraph wires in the United Stales to tbe effect that the Democratic pdrty bus made x "blunder." At every election wo are assured that tbe Democratic p:«rty is dear), but in the live or six months which pre cede the opening of important campaigns the stereotyped an nouncement of the deatli of the party is preceded by a chapter of its blunders. its blunders have steadily carried it forward from an Immense minority or (he people of Hie United States into a decisive majority, it bus blundered along from a hopeless minority in Ibe Hoii-e of Representatives into a control if lhat bjdy which has now 1 i.-ded three years, which will infallibly last another year, and which will probobly, this fall, be extended fir another period of two years, with an increased emphasis aud majority. On tliellh of March, 1879—just übout blue months from to-day—tbe Democratic party will blunder into a decisive majority in tho United States Senate. The Democratic House of Repre sentatives has blundered into all kinds of retrenchments. Through its continuous aud determined blundering the hand of monopolies and corporations has boen taken from the throat of the people, at least to tbe extent that can be reached by the Congress of the United States. No Pacific Mall Company, or any other corpora tion, cau now send its agents to Congress and bribe through that body a subsidy of §300,000 In order to assist a stock movement In Wall street. Tho rJemocratic House ot Representatives has so rtgulaled its blundering that silver lias been ouco more restored to Its rightful status and gold and greenbacks are wilhiu a fracliou of each other. On the whole, tho country can very well sland a little more Dem ocratic blundeiing. We have never taken a distem pered or violent view of the fraud ulent occupation of the Presidency by Hayes. Wo have steadily held that an investigation of the Florida and Louisiana frauds was an im perative duty which Congress owes to the American people. It docs not follow that Hayes will neces sarily be unseated; but it does fol low, as the night llio day, that if these fiauds.bj made as plain as a pikestaff the Republican party, in stead of demanding, as a right, a continuance iv power, should hum bly supplicate for a locus peni tentlcv in which, in sack-cloth and ashes, it may do penance for its iniquities. Gov. Robinson, of New York, summarizes the whole mat ter very happily. He says: Uutil tlie matter is probed to tbe bottom the people will not be satis fied,~and the counl.iy will be in a feverish state and the question con stantly agitated. Tlie opposition of the Republicans to an investiga tion will be received as a quasi admission of wrong. The Investi gation will not nfleet the business of the couutry. Its result, what ever it may be, will tend to a more settltd feeling ot security. If the investigation shows Hayes to have been elected, the result will be ac cepted as tinal and tho cry of "fraud" will be bushed. If it shows that Tilden Electors were chosen in Florida ami Louisiana, it may not be poellble lo secure the seating of tne rightful President, but it will bring down upon the conspirators, high and low, the condemnation ol a cheated and de frauded people, and will remand the guilty parties who inspired the wrong, or participated in it, to ob livion or lo prison. The address of the Republican Congressmen is ridiculous. The nou-partizau Convention which assembled at Bacramento yesterday recogulzed itself te be, what in fuot it was from its incep tion, a fiasco. It adjourned bine die, after recognizing what had already been accomplished in the lirst, sec ond and third districts. Il took ad vintage of tho fact that no action has yet been taken in the Fourth Congressional District by tailing a Convention at San Joso, on the 30ih Inst.) to make the nominations for the Southern end of the State, the ret,reseatateon to be based on two I delegates for each member of the ! Legislature to which tho several 'counties are entitled under the ap : porlioument of 1870. Such an al j lotment is an injustice to Los An j fielos county, which should have at , least ten members. Tlie whole | thing is a pour substitute for honest, I straightforwaid Democratic noml- I nations. The remarks of Blame, reported in our telegraphic columns yester jday, to the effect that many Demo crats were prepared lo vote for the Potter resolutions of Inquiring into the Florida and Louisiana frauds who really did not wish to see thein quiry made,while there were many I Republicans ready to vote against it who, iii their hearts, favored in vestigation, reveals a very peculiar phase of American polities. To some extent at least the Maine Senatoi's epigram has a basis of truth. But there is mi irresistible public sentiment which coerces an Investigation. H is growl ng (lay by day; und, thus far, obstacles which were supposed to ho insup erable have been overcome. Tho movement has already gained a momentum which has conquered lukewarmßeae lv the Democratic and opposition in the Republican rank. It It but the beginning of a grand assertion of tho conscience of the American people. THERE are soms special features of iuterjst in regard to wool this year which deserve a passing note. From inquiries made by us in au thoritative quarters we learn that the wool crop of Dos A ngsles county Ihis season is about fifty per cent, of an ordinary yeat's yield. Owing to tlie cold weather, aud the early shearing, a given quantity of wool this year weighs about fif teen per cent. loss than it would in an ordiuaiy year, because of tbe absence of the grease which usually attaches to it. Tho quality of tlie wool, owing to this circumstance, was probably never before so good as now. The value) of sheep has, of course, advanced, although not so much so as might have been expected. This is due to the fact that it is yet so near shearing time. Properly attended sheep will, from this time on, net their owners about ten percent, a mouth. Sheep feed is so superabundant as to defy disaster from any quarter. Ourt esprit dv corps, as will as the eminent fitness of the man, notwithstanding certain stupen dous attempts ut wit lv an obscuro newspaper quarter, lead us to suit gest that the non-partisan Conven tion called lo meet at San Jose— the only tiling left to iho Democ racy by tho Central organization for delegates at Urge-could not do a better thing thau to make Col. J. J. Ayers, ot tho Express, ono of the nominees for the Fourth Congres sional District In the abseuce of regular party nominations for del egates ut large, we should lake a rare pleasure In supporting Col. Ayers. TiiEtiß is an old adage which rends that any fool may usk ques tions but that it requires a wise man to answer them. When you get your wise man It becomes a question as to whether he should employ his valuable time on inani ties. He may not regard the play as woilh the candle. LAST NIGHT'S NEWS.

Wasiiinuto.v, May 22.—SKN ate—Pending discussion on the resolution o[ Davis, the morn ing hour expired and lugalls called up as UDtiulsbed busi ness tho bill to provide a per manent form of government for the District of Columbia. Ferry said the understanding of tho Senate yesterday was that the House bill to forbid the further re tirement of legal tender notes should bo taUeu up at tho expira tion of tho morning hour today and then laid aside informally, to allow the Senator from Missiesipi ] (Lamar) to address the Senate upon the Texas Pacific Itailroad bill. All the Senators concurred that the understanding was that Lamar should be heard upon the Texas- Pacific bill. Ferry said ho would not insist upou consideration of tho bill to forbid the further retirement of legal tender notes to-day, as the Senator from Delaware "(Bayard) was not prepared to speak. The hill to provide a permanent government for tbe District of Columbia was laid aside informally and Lamar spoke iv favor of tho Texas Pacilic railroad bill. Davis, of West Virgiuin, called up tho resolution submitted by htm a few days ago, authorizing the select committee appointed to investigate the financial reports, books and accounts of tne Treasury Department, to continue its inves tigation and sit during recess. An extended discussion followed. House.—A volo was called for ias to whether Harrison's resolution presented a question of privilege Both sides seemed disinclined to vote and til 9 result was, yeas 71; nays 50. Tbe point of no quorum being raised on the Democratic side Har rison withdrew his resolution. Watson then offered a resolution extending the power of the investi gating Committee to any State where there may be well ground ed allegations of fraud. Cox, of New York, moved to re fer tho resolution to the I'otter Committee nnd tlie yeas and nays were called for. The vote resulted, yeas SO, nays US. The motion to refer being thus defeated the reso lution was adopted without divis ion. Springer submitted a report from the Committee on Expendit ure!

Tlie Harris v RetttlMtleab Washington, May 22d.—Harri son offered a preamble and resolu tion reciting the formation of the Potter Committee to investigate Florida and Louisiana frauds; that it is charged that like frauds existed in Oiegon and South Caro lina and empowering that commit tee to enquire into tho same, if substantiated by testimony to be presented to it. Resolved, The Senate and House of Representatives of the -11th Con gress having counted tho electoral votes for President and Vice Presi dent and it having been declared that Rutherford B. Hayes had re ceived tho highest number of votes for President and Wm. A. Wheeler the highest number of votes for Vice President, that it is not now in tlie power of Cengress, nor is it it the purpose of this House, through sail investigation, to an nul or attempt to annul the action of the 41th Congress in the prem ises. The point having been presented as to whether the resolution in volved a question of privilege, the Speaker pro tern., Sayler, submit ted the question to tho House. Ou a standing vote both sides mani fested a disinclination to tako grounds on either side and tho vote was takeu by yeas and nays and resulted: Yeas 71, nays 50. But few Republicans voted and not nearly all the Democrats. Tbe members of tlie select committee who voted at all were Potter, Cobb, Cox, of Ohio.Morrison andStenger, who voted in the affirmative. Objection being made that 110 quorum had voted, Harrison, amidst storms of calls to order, withdrew tho resolution, stating that he was not desirous of ob structing business.

After the appointment of a Com mittee on Permanent Organization, contested seals and resolutions, the Couvention adjourned till 3 p, 11, isntier nntl me tavesUffisMeis. Chicago, May 221. — Tho Tri bune's Washington special sayt: Referring to tlie complaints made by Republicans at the appointment of General Butler ou tho Investi gating Com uittee, Morrison said that tho Republicans were mis taken. Butler might prove to be tho most troublesome investigator for the Democrats upon the com mittee. Butler was not for the administration, but was not for the Democracy. He is for Packard, and it will undoubtedly be his pur pose to show that Packard was elected, for the benefit of the Re publicans in Louisiana. He will not be of any advantage to the Democrats. Morrison is one of tlie Democrats who dropped Tilden at an early period of the electoral contest. When a committee, con sisting of Henry Watterson and J. Sterling Morton went to New York to learn from Tilden what his de sires were as to the Electoral Com mission, they came back and re ported that Tilden had said that he knew he was elected, but there must be no trouble about il; and one of them declared that Tilden was more of a candidate for the cemetery than for the Presidency, as he was nothing but an animated old corpse. From the time that report was made Morrison aban doned Tilden and ho has never had anything to do with him flrce. I)c-ti tii-five T1,,.>,!. Deapwood, D. T.i May 22d.— The heavy storm In this vicinity last week was followed by warm weather and rain, which caused Deadwood and Whitewood creeks to again overflow their banks and flood a great portion of the town.

A man who had been unable to get out before leaped from the house on to the bridge just before tho collision. Several smaller houses were also cairled away by the flood. Ed ward Preble was struck by a falling roof aud knocked into the stream, but was finally rescued. No fatal ities have yet been discovered. Much of the roa.l between lliis point, Lead City aud Central is washed away, and much damage to placer claims bus resulted. The entire damage thus far is about $50,01)0, principally to miners.
