Milan coloured candidate for the legislature from Plaquemine testified that he told the negroes that they would be re enslaved if they voted the democratic ticket. Model Colon Dof Iberia testified that his Church was burned because he refused to preach political sermons. Butler thrown upon the National government unusual responsibility. Evidence which could not be discredited came to the president and to the department of Justice showing that intimidation and violence prevailed in several states to Sueh an extent As to prevent Freedom of opinion and that in South Carolina unlawful military companies known As a Rifle clubs a were organized and that b Riding through the country armed doing violence to peaceable people and menacing Good citizens who differed with them in political opinion they broke up or prevented assemblages for poll real discussion. In View of the actual and prospective danger of Lawless violence before and at the election and in pursuance of a statute which requires the attorney general to exercised general supervision Aud direction Over the attorneys and marshals of All districts in the United states As to the manner of discharging their respective duties i communicated to the marshals in those districts which appeared to be in special danger from intimidation the instructions enclosed. These instructions heretofore published Are stringent in their character and designed to secure voters in the exercise of their rights. I am satisfied that the u. S. Marshals acting in Concord with the supervisors of elections under these instructions in new York Philadelphia Baltimore St. Louis Chicago new Orleans and several of the Southern states contributed materially to the preservation of the peace and to securing to Citi Zens Freedom in the exercise of their right of suffrage. The interest which the people of the United states have in the purity of the ballot for Federal officers to be elected by the popular vote and the acts of Congress intended to guard the ballots for congressional candidates from fraud justified and required the instructions. Sueh were the demonstrations of Domestic violence in South Carolina a few weeks before the election so defiant and uncontrollable by the civil Power that the governor of i that state applied under the Constitution i to the president stating that he was unable i to suppress the Domestic violence that sex i isted in the state that armed organizations 1 contrary to Law known As a a Rifle clubs a i continually roamed Over the country doing violence and that they were altogether be j Pond his control breaking up the peace of the shite and terrifying the citizens. The declaration of the governor supported by ample evidence from other sources left j the president but to comply with his Eon i j Stith tonal demand by issuing an approx i prop Riate proclamation and by ordering to that state such military Force As seemed to j be necessary and was within his control. 1 the troops were not intended to interfere j and did not interfere with any citizens right to vote but on the contrary their Endeavor j was to make it Safe for citizens to vote a i cording to their political opinions. There is j no authentic evidence that any Man has been deprived of Bis right to vote or of his Freedom of of an Ion by the presence of the Small i military Force in South Caro Ina. To have refused the Aid sought by the governor to suppress Domestic violence and insurrection would have been a Plain denial of tile constitutional right of the governor and people of South Carolina. The so surjection Iii South Carolina and in some other states Iii which coloured voters Are numerous seemed to be founded upon the idea that the fifteenth amendment to the Constitution prohibiting the deprivation of citizens of their right to vote on account of race color or previous condition of servitude was a Blunder and that the people of the South were not bound to recognize or submit to it but Sueh pretensions in View of the history and under the present circumstances of the country Are unreasonable. The fifteenth amendment to the Constitution was forced upon the people of the Union by the insubordination of the then dominant voting population of the states which have been in rebellion against the government. It became obvious that the Freedom and civil rights of the coloured citizens of those states could not otherwise be preserved at the same time with the adoption of this amendment the political Power of these states was increased to the extent of two fifths of the coloured population in other words by More than Twenty electoral and More than fifty congressional votes so that but for the fifteenth amendment the party with which these states have generally Adu lated would have been in a decided minority in the late election instead of approaching As it did Equality with the Republican vote. To allow the Southern states the increased political Power implied by extending the right of suffrage to the coloured population and then to allow the exercise of that right to be prevented by intimidation and otherwise is a perversion of the Constitution and operates most unjustly toward the other states of the Union. Without denying the inconvenience of having a Large population of unintelligent voters it is enough to say that the coloured citizens have under the Constitution a Clear title to the ballot of which i know no fair or even practicable Way to deprive them. It is the duty of those who Are More intelligent to Aid in putting into operation a system of popular education which shall reach every class in every state. Universal education of the voting people both White Aud coloured is essential to the safety of our Republican government. No time should be lost in furnishing ample opportunities to every american citizen of whatever complexion race or condition to acquire sufficient mental and physical train the president and River and Harbor appropriation. Washington Jan. 12. The president to Day sent a message to the House of representatives in reply to the Resolution respecting the expenditures of certain moneys appropriated last session in the River and Harbor Bill and enclosing a report from the Secretary of War on the subject. The Secretary says the act was signed on the 14th of August and on the same Day the president sent a special message to the House stating that he did not consider it obligatory upon him to expend All the Money appropriated in the Bill during his t Ria of office. No Money should he expel d d on works not clearly National and the a of aug to contemplated loss of Revenue it 1?> be inadvisable to expend any Money u Ltd w works. The principles enunciate. It Bis message have governed the Secretary s action on this subject Iii every Case presented to him. Immediately after receiving the Bill the chief Engineer was directed to ask for statements from the engineers in charge of works As to what works Eon id tie postponed for the present and replies from them recommended the expenditure of about $4,500,000 of the appropriation. This reduction was so slight As practically to amount to nothing and therefore on the 4th of september having obtained the it approval of the president the Secretary directed the chief of engineers. Whose knowledge of this subject is More. I extended than that of any other officer of r j the government to make allotments from j Hie sums appropriated for various works j according to the Best of his judgment in such a manner that the total amount i should not exceed $2,000,000, Only pro Viding that no new works should be begun and none continued that were not National 1 in their character. In making these Aliot a inputs it was found that the amount designated $2,000,000, was quite sufficient for the purpose of carrying on hic works absolutely necessary and therefore the chief of engineers after an extended interview with the president was authorized in october to increase Hie amount to $2,237,600. Since that Date a few eases where Small sums were urgently requited to prevent damage or to make important examinations have been favourably voted upon and possibly there May be More of them. The Secretary suggests that the president had authority for his action under the Law and authority found in the River and Harbor Bill itself. The Bill was Iii no Way mandatory upon the president to expend the full amount of the appropriation nearly $5,,. The exercise of his discretion was influenced by the condition of the Treasury and the nature of appropriation fur other Public works of quite As much Imp. Ceas the River and Harbor improve.
