Faunce at was taken up and Walthall addressed the He said it could not be poeeibly pretented that congress had any jurisdiction over this Referring to the hanging in iffigy of Secretary at Aberdeen and the assault on Faunce he said it waa gsimply the wanton conduct of a few persons dissaproved by the Speaking for himself and representing the senti ment of the people of Mississippi he con demned those outrages and felt that the people of the United States would not hold the entire community re sponsible for the action of a few per Proceeding to the question of federal interference in Walthal agreed with Ingalls that the race ques tion was the most formidable ever pres ented to a free people for He saw no remedy which congress could ap ply that promised any practical He believed arbitrary enactments would but increase the The pro fessed purpose of the federal control was to secure a fair count of the negro but the actual object was to count that vote for the republican The proposition was such a menace to the rights of the people that it must meet with the condemnation cf all men anxious to preserve the spirit of the government In his opinion the re sult of no congressional election in any southern state would be controlled by any federal law congress could pass The white people would be driven into closer cooperation than before because the election of negro judges and officers meant negro domination and meant death to every interest and hope of the southern He could not counsel his people to accept such desolating barbarism without a nor yet to flee from the homes of themselves and He would not urge them to violate any public law or private but he would urge them not as a but as a means of present to He would appeal to them for their own safety to subordinate all party differ ences to that end and There was no safety for them in any different Walthal criticized all the pro posed remedies for said trouble includ ing the deportation and disfranchiee ment as impracticable and im Such colored men aa Bruce and Lynch he said were not but prodigies but some northern judging the whole negro race by did not appreciate the dread in which the southern people stood of negro Walthall alluded to the practice of fraud and bribery at northern and eaid if there was a show of force on the part of the white people to save themselves from negro that was at least an evidence of more honest conviction than the buying of George spoke of the resolution as unparalleled iu the history of legislation in this He admitted the facts had been correctly stated by the senator from Kansas the other day perhaps with little and he had no hesitation in declaring that the transaction the Faunce matter was such as demanded of the legislature of Mississippi an examination and reparation to the man Chandler advocated the If the senate was not only to be taunted when wrong of this kind were com by being what are you going to do about it but also was to be told by the senator from you have no right to enquire aud you dare not inquire into outrages of this then indeed had the senate fallen on woeful and lamentable Mr Ingalls spoke forcibly on the mat closing as follows It may be you will succeed in procuring a declaration that the senate of the United that the government of United States has no power either to inquire into a wrong against its citizens or to protect them against invasions of their but I say to the if Faunce had been a citizen of Kansas and if it should appear thmt the authorities of Mississippi would not avenge that and if it should

the new code could not be made ready for action in the house for several days to come even should it be desirable to report it there was an opinion entertained by many of the members to the effect that more positive progress could be achieved in the dis position of the contested election cases without the rules than with It was felt by some of these members that a safe work ing majority has been secured under the operations of the general parliamen tary law the rigidity of the new code mieht be relaxed with and the republicans might thus be relieved from the necessity of enacting a code which in time might perhaps be felt by themselves in full Having thus practically reached a decision that the election cases shall be considered before the code rules the question of and means arose and was long discussion which was simply a re flex of the individual views as to the possibility of securing and maintaining a quorum of republicans to meet the democratic opposition which it was expected would take the shape of refusal to It was finally determined at four republican members could not be relied upon to answer to their names if the democrats came to the conclusion to Two of
