The decision is that the Hayes electors were lawfully appointed and they voted at the time and in the Mauner provided for in the u. S. Constitution and Lawand the commission has by a majority of votes decided that it is not competent under the Constitution and the Law to go into evidence on the Aliende papers opened by the president of the Senate in the presence of the two houses to prove that other persons had been appointed electors or by counter proof show they bad not or that the determination of the returning Board was not in accordance with truth and fact the commission by a majority of votes being of the opinion that it is not within the jurisdiction of the two houses of Congress assembled to count the vote for president and vice president to enter upon the trial of such question. Also that it is not competent to prove that any of said persons so appointed electors held an office of Trust or profit under the United states at the time when they were appointed or that they were ineligible under the Laws of the state or any other matter to be proved Aliende by said certificates and papers. Also that the returning officers who canvassed the votes at the election for electors in Louisiana were a lawfully constituted body and that the vacancy in said body did not vitiate its proceedings. The commission also decided by the majority of votes that the paper purporting to be the certificate of the electoral votes of said state of Louisiana objected to by t. O. Howe and others certificate of the Tilden electors signed by Mcener is not the certificate of the votes provided for by the Constitution of the United states and that they ought not to be counted As such. The decision was signed by 8. F. Miller w. Strong j. P. Bradley g. F. Edmunds o. P. Morton f. T. Frelinghuyse j. A. Gal held and goo. F. Hoar.

Wallace a presented objections 1. That the decision is in violation of the electoral act in that the commission refused to examine Aud ascertain who were duly appointed electors in and by the state of Louisiana and what votes from that state Are within the provisions of the Constitution of the United states. 2. Because the act creating the commission was passed to the end that the commission would hear Aud examine the evidence and honestly decide what electors in any disputed state were fairly and legally chosen whereas the commission refused to hear and consider the evidence offered to show that the electors whose votes the commission decided should be counted were not duly chosen but that they had falsely Aud fraudulently acted a such electors and also refused the offer to show that tile pretended certificates of election Wert procured by corruption and were wholly untrue. The following objection and protest signed by senators Wallace Johnston Bailey Kernan Kelly Saulsbury and other senators and members was presented i. I. It was not denied before the commission that the Tilden electors in Louisiana had received a lame majority of the votes cast. 2 it was not denied before the commission that Wells and his associates styling themselves the returning Board were guilty of Gross frauds that their certificates Given to the Hayes electors were false and fraudulent or that their action in canvassing the votes was in violation of the Constitution Aud Laws of the state. 3 the action of eight members of the commission in declining to hear evidence of those and other facts was a violation of the letter Ana spirit of the act under which the commission was created and of the spirit of the Constitution of the United states. The two houses then separated to consider the objections. Washington feb. 20. The session of the joint convention was resumed at 1 25 p. In. The action of the two houses on the decision of the electoral commission having been read the presiding officer announced that the two houses not having decided otherwise the decision of the commission would stand in Force Aud the tellers were directed to declare the vote of Louisiana. Senator Allison one of the tellers thereupon announced that Louisiana had Given 8 votes for Hayes and Wheeler. The opening and counting of the certificates then proceeded Maine giving 7 votes for Hayes and Wheeler Maryland 8 votes for Tilden and Hendricks and Massachusetts 13 votes for haves and Wheeler. When the certificate from the state of Michigan was read giving eleven votes for Hayes and Wheeler Tucker a presented an objection to the counting of the a of Daniel l. Crossman appointed elector in the place of b. Hanchett who was elected but was ineligible claiming that the fact that Hanchett absented himself from the meeting did not create a vacancy and therefore that said Crossman had not been duly appointed elector. The Senate thereupon withdrew to let the objection be considered and acted upon by each House separately. Upon their return the announcement was made that the objection was overruled and the eleven votes of Michigan were announced As being cast for Hayes and w heeler. Then followed the state of Minnesota with 5 votes for Hayes and Wheeler Mississippi with 8 votes for Tilden and Hendricks Missouri with 15 votes for Tilden and Hendricks Nebraska with 3 votes for haves and Wheeler Ai d Nevada with three votes for Hayes and Wheeler. Springer 111. Objected to the count of one of the three votes of Nevada on the ground that elector r. M. Daggatt was at the time of his appointment and for a Long time previously and thereafter continued to be a u. S. Commissioner and was therefore under the Law ineligible. The Senate then withdrew and the House without action on the objection took a recess until the 21st. Washington feb. 21. When the joint convention met at 11 45, the resolutions of each House in favor of counting the votes of Nevada were read and the Teller announced that Nevada cast 3 votes for Hayes and Wheeler. Then followed new Hampshire 5 votes for haves and Wheeler new Jersey 0 votes for Tilden and Hen Dricks new York 35 votes for Tilden and Hendricks North Carolina to votes for Tilden and Hendricks and Ohio a votes for Hayes and Wheeler. Two certificates received from Oregon were then opened and read. The first was the sworn certificate of three Hayes electors Cartwright Odell and Watts executed be fore a notary Public. The papers accompanying contained a full statement of the doings of the three electors the resignation of Watts As postmaster his subsequent Choice by the other two electors the original ballots cast by the three electors Etc. The second was the certificate of the rival electors Cronin Miller and Parker authenticated by the signatures of the governor and Secretary of state with the Seal of the state attached. This certificate gives two votes to Hayes and Wheeler and one vote to Tilden and Hendricks. A senator Mitchell presented objections to the second certificate because neither of said persons was Ever by the state of Oregon in any manner whatever because Odell Cartwright and Watts were Dull appointed electors and cast their votes As such because the governors certificate was not issued to the persons having the highest number of votes for electors but was issued to persons whom he deemed eligible because the governors certificate in omitting to certify the election of Vav alts and in certifying the election of Cronin fails to conform to the acts of Congress in such cases provided and to the Law of Oregon and is therefore of no effect because Odell and Cartwright being duly appointed electors tilled the vacancy caused by Vav Atte resignation by his reappointment. Senator Kelly presented objections to the first certificate on the grounds the certificate of the governor required by the u. 8 revised statutes is not annexed to them it was the duty of the governor under the Law of the state to give the certificate of election to Cartwright Odell and Cronin they being the three persons capable of being appointed presidential electors who received the highest number of votes at the election there being no vacancy Watts could not be appointed presidential elector Cartwright and Odell did not on dec. 6,1876, compose or form any part of the electoral College of Oregon As by Law constituted and had no right to appoint Watts the latter was still postmaster at Lafayette dec. 6 and was ineligible As objections were referred elect Oral commission and the Senate withdrew
