Atlanta Constitution, The (Newspaper) - June 4, 1890, Atlanta, Georgia VOL. XXI. ATLANTA, GA., WEDNESDAY'" -JtTNE .4, PAGES. CEISP WORRIED THEM. GEOKOIAlf BEFESDS TVSFIS'S ICIGBT TO THE SEAT HE NOW OCCUPIES. r. Crisp Mnkca a Nomination In Wlmt He Calls the Election Now Going on tne House. WASHINGTON, Juno Crisp, of Georgia, made a great, speech iu the contested election case from Alabama today. His very first sentence brought forth applause from the democrats, and they continued cheering throughout his entire speech of over an hour. He dealt the republicans some stunning blows, and, indeed, kept them iu tbe hottest kind of water until he sat down. He opened his speech with the remark that as the house was going to hold an election for a representative from the fouryh district of Alabama, he had a man he wanted to put in nomination. He would assure the gentlemen of the republican side of the cham- ber that bis man was endorsed j by a majority of the people of the district from which it was the object of tho republicans to elect a mem- ber, and that if tbe wishes tho people of tbe district were considered, his man would he elected. His man was Louis W, Turpin, the democrat who has occupied the seat since the'opening of this congress, and the man who tho people of Alabama sent here by a very large majority of their votes. This statement, which every republican on the floor of the house know to be true, worried the republican pirates no little, while the democrats ap- plauded every sentence to the echo. TURNS HIS GUNS ON REED. Then tbe Georgian threw some heavy shot into the big carcass of Tom Reed. He said it tho policy of the republican party, as an- nounced by Iteed in his Fittsburg speech, tbat they must pnss a law that would give them the authority to do the counting aud certifying in all elections for seats in congress, and that that statement was a fair illustration of the manner by which they would enforce all laws which they had the power to enforce. They had the power to elect a mau in Mr. Turpin's place, but he hoped they were satisfied with their already large majority, and would now vote honestly. Colonel Alabama, followed Judge Crisp in a very strong argument. Tho elec- tion comes off tomorrow at 2 o'clock and then Mr. Turpin will be turned down. He has some hope that there arc enough honest repub- licans to allow him to hold the seat to which he was honestly elected, but there are no other democrats who knows the ways of tho republicans, who entertain such views. Mr. Turpin. will make a speech on his own case to- morrow. A GEORGIA POST-MASTER. B. F. Morgan was today appointed post- master at Montezuma, Marion county. AN RLETTIOX REPORT The bouse committee on elections tbis morn- ing submitted its report on the .Miller-Elliott contested case, front South Carolina. That is the republican members submitted their re- port, favorable to turning out Colonel Elliott, and in it they make the very broad assertion that tbe South Carolina election laws are in violation of the constitution of that state. If tbis bo true, then every representative from the state of South Carolina could be turned of his seat in congress. But instead of carrying out this assertion, and draw- ing conclusions from it, the report takes up the question of whether or not Colonel Elliott received tho largest number of votes, and decides that he did not. Tbey do not hold that by reason of the uncon- stitutionally of the election law, no election held, but concluded that Miller, the negro republican contestant, is entitled to the seat by a majority of 757. Elliott was elected by a majority of thirteen hundred and fifty-five, vutos, but the republicans are sure to turn him out, counting the votes which were put in the wrong boxes, and which, under the laws of Bouth Carolina, are not entitled to be counted. However, tbe republicans pay no attention to elections in the states. They hold elections and elect their men here. E. "W. B. A FIOHT FOR A SEAT. Crisp Tnrpin's Right to His Seat. WASHINGTON, June 3. The house proceeded to the consideration of the Alabama contested election case of McDuffie vs. Turpin. Mr. Comstock, of Minnesota, opened the discussion witji an argument in favor the claims of the contestant. Mr. Crisp, of Georgia, presented the claims -of the contestee. After reviewing portions of the evidence, he referred to the slim attend- ance in the house. The majority report said that the election in the fourth district of Ala- bama was a farce. "What was this? [Laughter.] What kind of an election was this? How many members (outside of the members of the committee on elections) liad read the report of tho committee? He would pause to allow any gentleman to reply. Mr. Allen, of Michigan, said tbat so far as lie was conccerned tbe report had been care- fully attended to. Mr. Crisp Did you read it? Mr. Allen Yes. Mr. Then I commend the gentleman to bis constituents. Mr. Allen And my constituents will respond heartily. How many counties are in the dis- trict under consideration? Mr. Crisp Five. Mr. Allen. I just wanted to know. Mr. Crisp Did you think I knew as little about tbe case as you do? [Laughter.] Mr. Crisp denounced what he declared was the partiality of the elections committee. Tbis was in contrast with democratic congresses. Democratic congresses had often seated repub- licans. How many gentlemen ou tho republi- can side had voted in this congress for demo- crats. He saw one, and only one. (Referring to Mr. Hill, oE Illinois.) Mr. Comstock Has not every republican vote been cast to keep three democrats in their seat? Mr. Crisp Yes and I think that was done in order that you might have monuments of your generosity to point to. [Laughter.] Mr. Comstocfc Con the gentleman point to uny monuments on this side Mr. I can'point to two or three gen- tlemen on that side who are monuments of tho generosity, or rather the justice, of the last house. Mr. Rowell, of Illinois, inquired whether it a fair and honest law by which one party f a lack of evidence, claiming self-defense and there were no witnesses. The place of the recent killing is twenty-five miles from a tele- praph station. LETTER FROM LORD WOLSEtEY, Which He Pays a High Tribute to the Memory of Lee. ICHMOND, Va., June 3.

E., May in which he Says Mr. Frank Lawley fias forwarded to me an invl- ition to attend the unveiling of a monument to taegcrreat general and patriot, Robert Lee. I am fratefnl to your excellency for this kind thought >f one who takes the deepest interest in every liing that affects the interests and welfare of the American people, ol the same stock as ourselves. Speaking tbe same language, governed by the ame laws, and ifntmed the same love of fair )lay and it would be unnatural if we were tot the same in spirit and inspiration. Without utering upon any vexed question. Is it not, there- ore, natural that all Englishmen should be proud of General Lee, as we are protatjxf General Gor- don. Those two men were the only great patriotic heroes I have ever known, and i Uonor-them tto ny thoughts, as if .they were twin brothers, and both bad been my. own comrades in arms, Bayne a Denomination.
