Nr.w OrttCANs, La., Dec. 9,1875.
Hon. W. L. MrMlUcn. Sonfltor cleat of Lntlalann;
Pear .Sir—I have read, with regret,
your open letter add reused to inc,
through the Associated Press, dated
yesterday, in which you express the
opinion that the struggle of the people
of Louisiana, Tor the right of s»'lf-gov
»»rnrnent, lias been determined against
them, and announce the wlthdrawal^f
your credentials as Senator, and tender
the people of Louisiana, through me,
the trust- committed by thorn to your
In my judgment, based upon all that
hns oecnrred since tho inception of our
dilReultles, you have seriously erred in
the conclusions at which vou have ar
i ou address me as "Governorcleet
of Loulsliinn." If I mu "Governor
elect " since 1872 wiiat estops me as th»>
chosen Executive of the State and vests
that right In a usurper? The means by
which lids lias been accomplished are
well known to the public, and they
never have received, and never »'an re
ceive. the approval of the American
I 11 November, 1H72, the government,
of which 1 am the otlleiai head, was
elected by the people of Louisiana. Tho
resuit of the election was legally ascer
tained. and declared by tho Legislat ure,
of which we were a member, and in
which there was n quorum of legally
elected members of both branches. In
January, 1879, I was inaugurated, and
acted ns Governor until I was prevented
bythoarmoftln FederuLVdininistratlon,
unlaw fully exercised against me through
the military powey or the nation. The
right tonet I still assert, and that right
t cannot and will not. surrender.
You were elected Senator bv t he Leg
islature of the State in 187:t. If your
eredentlnls wore valid then, tliev are
xnlid now. In your letter you say, "The
Senate. »<> this date, has hold the <nics
tlou In abeyance." Then, whv ivttli
rlrtivy vonr eredentlnls ami abandon
youf trust while the Senate, the onlv
C ower competent to judge of their va
dity, hns never passetl upon them?
But you state that other and equally
competent partie» have, praetienliy mid
finally, determined the <|iiestloii, and
you refer to the " Wheeler adjust mont, "
the resolution of the Louisiana Législa
ture acquiescing in, but not approving
tins oetnuj governnient of Mr. Kellogg,
the action of the last Lowor IIouso of
Congress in the same elTocl, an»l t<) tho
s«*»ttrig of Mr. Morey, on th« 6th inM.,
upon credentials signed by tlm person
who is acting as Governor of Loulsaua.
In my judgment, your interpretation of
these mai tors is not sound. They can
not possibly hear on the issue of the
legality of the State government, be
cause —
1. The Loglslatureof Louisiana of IH75 i
had no constitutional power to displace
n State government elected by tho
people in 1872 and Inaugurated in t873,
or to retire its claims, or to substitute
for it a usurpation.
2. That Legislature did uot declare
the validity of the Kellogg government,
but merely accepted it »in Hie artivrj
government until such ttmo nr. the Fed
oral Congress, where the question of ito
legality was ponding, should settio it,
:t. Even this resolution 'if .-ufTerance.
w ldcli erpre.s'fii»/ irWihcld any approval
of the Kellogg government, was passed
by a State Senate of w hich a majority
wore ucurpora.aadrr.iiiutoof legal right
as Mr Kellogg himself—by the rem-,
liant of the people'» House of Ropro

1875, from the legislative iialls of tlio

At if« beat, it recoguizes the existence
of a dc facto, not tlio legality of a <fe
jure government, and vn« passed, sign
ed, approved ajjd promulgated by the
very usurpers whose h'gal ttntu« you
seen, to think it rooognlz"«» Wlmt pro
vision of our law, State or Federal, eon
stitiitcd this usurping governnient tb»
judge of its own legality or authorizes
the Hubversion of a ne jure in fav or of a
bn stal'd dr facto 'g»>verunient?
It must also be remembered t hot. tlio
advocates of thl« adiuat nient declared
that I» referred solely to thb difficulties
growing out of tlio election of 1874, and
had no reference to those of 1872; and,
besides, that the Wheeler committee,
in their report <0 Congress, declared
that they had not Investigated the eloc
tiou of 1872, and flint their resolution
recognizing Kellogg they based not on
facts »'r law, but on their surmises and
opinions of what the people of Louisi
ana were willing to accept, and of which
they knew absolutely nothing. If they
had sought the desires of tho people,
they could liuve found ample evidence«
or their stubborn mid heroic resistauoe
to t wo years of oppression and wrong,
in the formal resolves of every parish
and community in the Btntt*. aud in
their Imposing upheaval of September
14, 1874, which swept away, as with the
hand of fate, every vestfge of a hntccl !
As to tho notion of Congress, I neo»l
not remind you that the House Im
peached Judge Durcli because of tlio
'midnight order," and seated Gen.
Sherldau on tlio official returns, which
evidence my election; thut the Senate
has refused to admit. Mr. Piueliback,
has announced thut the Kellogg gov
ernment was not elected, and that the
declarations of tlio Lynch Returning
Board were false aud without the sem
blance of integrity. Logically and le
gally, there ia but one conclusion from
ihe findings and act ion of Congrues, and
that ic the overthrow of the usurpation.
In seating Mr. Morey, on tho 6tti inst.,
the House did not recognize Mr. Kel.
logg other than a« acting Governor.
They expressly expunged ull thut would
imply their recognition de jure.
I therefore, bb Governor elect of Lou
isiana, iu the uarne of the people, do
deny that their right to govern them
selves has been lost, either by their own
acquiescence or by the Wheeler adjust
ment of the Louisiana House of Repre
Bontativec, or by any action of the Fed
eral Congress.
On the 6th of January, 1876 , a conven
tion will be hold in this city, and the
people's representatives, many of them ,
already elected and instructed, will de - 1
maud of the Federal Government tho
overthrow- of tho usurpation which its
! Executive alone lias created, and whose !
j official hrnad, Mr. Kellogg, hat confessed :
his inability to mainto in his position for
a single day without the bayonet aid of :
: its author. f
This demand will be intensified by the
appalling fact that the usurpation, |
through its elcotiou laws and returning
boaraj wields the absolute power of self -1
æ tuation, in defiance of the popular 1
ind that resistance on tho part of
! the people may jeopardize, iu the next 1
j olec f loi * the p ^ a J Ç0 thp jJtate. i
Regretting your course, in resigning ,
I vour position as Senator, I have no on
, tjoû but to accept the resignation, aiid ;
T Eenrettine'vour course in resitfnincr !
_ . _
n - b - t. Jounfo Bowwtt. bv Un-'lc
w ...... ... -
I will forthwith appoint your successor.
In conclusion, I would add, that for
myself i wUi never abandon the post
<° which the people of Louisiana have
called me. So long as I have life ami
strength I will continue to battle to the
utmost for tlio inalienable right of aelf
govornment. Before the prostrate form
of my stricken ^tatoT shall still hold
the mgts of tho .Constitution, and no
alien hor domestic hand shall strike at
her liberties unresisted l>y me.
With a still unfaltering confidence in
the Justico and good faith of tho Fede
ral Congress nn»f the people of the whole
United States, I shall never cease to ap
peal to that justice and that faith until
1 shall have secured to Louisiana the
right which alone is denied ta lier, and
which she will never surrender, of liv
ing under the rule of the lawfully elect
ed officers of |»er own sovereign choieo.
I nave tlio honor to remain, very
respectfully, your obedient servant,
John McEnery,
Governor of Louisiana.
