We present below some additional opinion from leading journals on the pending Potter Resolution Quot this la not an auspicious opening of the a fraud Campaign for the democrats. The Public does no to feel much interest in any further investigation of the last presidential election most people have heard a Good Deal More about it than they want to already. But if there not be an investigation the country will insist on fair p a and each Side must have an equal Chance to show what Rascal the other fellow a Springfield . A the Florida Resolution has Ai last been offer of been declared a question of privilege and has at once established a party question to be debated from partisan Points of View. And to harass the country for nothing. No telegraphic news. From Washington. One int ones that or. Ii Ives s title til be shaken by it. But the Democrat Hope to make a cry Aud the republicans Hope to mute a counter cry by extending the scape of the inquiry Aud forcing Hie democrats to disagree to thai Extension. Nothing Iii Short is in the matter but n party move. Aud one a tire to bring sectional feeling from the torpid condition into which it happily sinks Hack into a vicious state Dean. A it is obvious that the whole object is to create a democratic Campaign committee to Aud travel during the recess Aud to employ phone Grapner to prepare literature for tile election Campaign at the people expense. The trick to real net Hie inquiry to the very restricted specific charges will make it so clearly a partisan a Flam that ii reports will not command the Public Cincinnati Gazette rep. A it is our impression that it w Iii not add to the strength of the democratic party to put it before the Public in the Light it i thus presented. Of pulling an inquiry avowedly one sided and for no Oiler purpose than that of showing up the alleged frauds of Republican manager while refusing to allow inquiry by the same commit tee into frauds alleged to have been committed by democratic Catul N.T. commercial. Rep. A was the affair stands the democrats for the purpose of partisan gain. Are willing to plunge the country into a heated party discussion utterly heckle a of toe upon Trade Aud Bun Uez a already Tutti Curtly embarrassed. In a word the Tilden coterie Are practically conspirators against the Good order Aud Well being of i Community.

It is whether the most precious provision of the Constitution of the United state that which secures to the citizens the Jint at slated periods to elect their own chief magistrate Hull be preserved against the a Pron Nee of fraud. All Honor to the Brave men who Lead and the True men who follow. No traitor a no laggards now rally a a f. A a. Sun did. A the whole proceeding is a farce engineered in i he interest of or. Tilden and other democrats. Do Hope to manufacture capital for future campaigns. The Busine a interest of the country it seems must be Mac rifled to their de Aire for Campaign capita.

Immediately after there was read from the clerk a desk a notice calling a caucus of the Republican member. Tin was received with the same Deri Ive laughter from the democratic Side a came from the republicans Ester Nav when be democratic caucus a called. Rise Republican caucus was called at there quest of a number of members of that Side who wanted to consult a to the line of action and some of whom also wanted some satisfactory Assurance thai any Good a to re ult from continued filibustering. I he republicans were also somewhat uneasy Lecaue it had come to their kilo i ledge that there a it talk on the democratic Side of the discovery of a precedent by which Al Libua ering could be stopped. It has transpired As claimed by the democrats that or. Blaine on one occasion when speaker ruled that Rill i Litis t Cring come not at p a motion to Amend the rules. The proposition therefore is that the Nile be amended so that full Busti ring will not Avail to prevent the passage of the Potter Resolution Aud on t be motion to Amend to a i Ules the speaker refuse to enter am dilatory motions. The ruling alluded to. Which was made by speaker blame has been pm into the hand of speaker Randall and whatever Force it May give As a precedent will it 1� said by inc democrats be availed of. The caucus of the republicans was Long Aud Earnest lading Over three hours and Between thirty and forty gentlemen speaking. It was fun ally determined that the passage of the Potter Resolution should be opposed to the last extremity. One of the most notable speeches of the caucus was made by a Quot a.

It w a preen eur in the House at the instance of a few men no. By tiny manner in which it had been managed were enabled to Force Hie rest of their party into Stu Quot. Gen Butler then went on to depict the danger which threatened the administration and the Republican party. He said Tost Afier the 4th of March net the democrats would Lave control of both branches of Congress. Then they could refuse to recognize or. Hayes or make any appropriation for his administration they could elect a democratic president pro tem. Of the Senate and instal Blin in the presidency. Ile went of in this Strain for some time and he a sure his associates that he intended to with them the impression he pro do Cert was a said above thai be would like the democrats to win. Or. Banks declared that Tho purpose of the democracy was to attack the government and that the motives of the promoters of the move meat were to in some Maimer remove or. Hayes either or declaration of a vacancy in the presidential office or by process of impeach meet. He thought the situation a very grave Aud serious one. Or. Brown of Indiana entertained View i. And was of opinion that Republican could not be too Earnest in denouncing a this revolutionary movement a and in Cau ing the people to understand the True situation. Or. Garth id understood that the purpose of the democrats was to attack the title and he thought that the Republican should 0ddoeauv investigation. The democrats c. Uld have nut two object. A tier to create Campaign scandal or to move against the president of the first was intended the purpose was an unworthy Odi if the second it was revolutionary. Or. Hale of Marne made a few remarks from the chair. He found the caucus More diet of de to oppose any investigation than to support his Resolution. The Point was that if the investigation contemplated by the Potter Resolution a revolutionary the republicans could barely just try them clues in supporting Hale a amendment Aud that the Wiser course would be to oppose the investigation. From the action of the caucus it is App rent that he party will not make a stand on Hale s amendment and that they will oppose a1 investigation. In he decision of the caucus practically is Hist shall continue until the democrate obtain a quorum of their own nuni Ber. So that the responsibility will be with them that the subject of indefinite Fly Bueter my shall remain open after that and that the republicans will vote As a unit until another caucus.

William i wis., Tom Sou and other All agreeing that the Semi inc offered from the democratic Side bad a purpose Biden Aud deep. To overthrow the present administration while the re suit might Lead to a revolution in the country. The ouly question of difference was As to How far the Republican member should resist the passage it f the Resolution shoui.1 the amendment now in Hie hands of or. Hale proposing to include Oregon. Mississippi and certain mat ters connected with Louisiana and Florida in the investigation be excluded and As to whether they should by such resistance take the responsibility of delaying legislation for an indefinite period in order to prevent w hat they deem not Only wrong but dangerous. It was generally held that the Lutent of the Resolution was of sufficient Gravity to jus nay resistance to the end. Representative Brown submitted a Resolution which was agreed to providing for a committee of Mue to prepare Resolution expressive of the Sene of Tho caucus. The following named gentlemen w Ere appointed As the committee representatives Brown. Garfield. Reed. Phillips , Claflin. Bunnell and Mitchell.
