Noyes now minister to me government of Fratoe and we skuas it is alleged that a conspiracy existed in the state of Louisiana whereby the Republican vote in All me Precin Etsol the Paihr of East Feliciana and in some precincts of wet Fel i Laua at me general election in november 1876, was purposely withheld from the polls to a pre text Tor the exclusion by the resuming Board or that state of the Voie cast la these precincts Lur electors of president and vice president and that James k.

John Sher Man to Secretary of me Treasury of me United states Aud whereas the Gravity of these charges the nature of the evidence upon which they Are reported lobe based Sod the official dignity and position of person named in with said frauds to make it pro tar mat the same should be inquired into to it and that the Honor of the nation May la be vindicated and the truth a to such elections be made known therefore be it Jet Tulve thames elect committee consisting of Sloven members of this Homo he appointed to in autre into the aforesaid allegation As to the of persons in the office aforesaid in respect of Bald elect Lon and into alleged false and fraudulent canvass and return of votes by slate county Parish and precinct officers in a sort states of Louisiana and Florida and into All fact which.

General debate on the Resolution. The preamble and Resolution having been read or. Conger said they do not present a question of privilege and that the Powers proposed in the Resolution could not be Given by a Mere a Jar Ltd vote but would require a suspension of the Rulea. Or. Potter said one would suppose that if there was any subject which should be entitled to preference in Tala House in respect of the order of by Alness it a a subject brought to Lis notice by the memorial of a Sovereign state touching the official conductor High officers of the government and relating to fraud alleged to have occurred changing the result of the election of me highest off Cera of this government. Or. Conge has the memorial of the 8t"te of Maryland been committed to the gentleman from new York an that he has any Possession of it in which to offer such a Resolution f or. Potter i am now speaking Only to the ones to of order. Later on if i have an Opportunity to aay anything i shall be Able to make answer to the inquiry which the gentleman has just put to me. Nas to the question of order it Seema to me that to state this can la to argue it. If for Rea sons that appear on the face of this Resolution this inquiry la not privileged then nothing can by its nature he privileged. If the House of representatives of not to give preference to the consideration of any subject a abject of the magnitude of this one to Wincn me Resolution relates ought certainly to have such preference. Or. Hale argued from the rules and manual that the Resolution did not present a question or privilege. If the Resolution proposed or was to subvert the accepted result in the presidential election then there might be some claim that it did present a question of privilege hut As a Mere expression of opinion it did not pre sent any Auch question or. Garfield also argued against the Resolution being a privileged one. He said theg. Etleman from new York bases his claim that it is a or leu legend question on be fact that the memorial which it recites is a memorial from a Sovereign 1b therefore in iii d to a very High place in the consideration of this House. I think that the gentleman from new York was unfortunate in Plant ing Hub Case on that idea thes Lattof the a Union Are represented by individual members who Are sent Here to speak and vote for their states and in no Oiher Way whatever can a state of kids Union he heard on this floor except under the Rule which is a recent modification that on monday morn ing s Call joint resolutions of state and territorial legislation May be introduced for printing Aud reference. The speaker would the gentleman from Ohio deny to a state the right of petition As Given in the Constitution or. Garfield of a state has of course the right of petition. Am Norial is a ton and is provided for in the Constitution wherein it is stated that Congress shall make no Law abridging the Light of the people to petition the government for a redress of grievances. The speaker s refer ence to the right of petition la entirely unnecessary. That question waa disc used on this very Maryland everybody Here granted perfect and unquestioned rights petition. But the right of action hereon this quite a Dif Ferent thing and the question of whether it Rise to the dignity of a privileged question depends upon the right or action which somebody can ask of the House thin is a question of privilege with out doubt provided the mover of it alleges the purpose to Pillow it up As a matter of impeach ment. If be says this a proceeding intended to pave the Way to impeachment then doubtless it May be a question of privilege if he says this is a proposition by the House to raise and Dee de the question or title or the present Chloel magistrate to the office which he holds i answer that question has been settled by the joint voice of the two houses of Congress and is b Lynnd the reach of this House. If again the object of the Resolution 1b merely to organize a for Campaign purposes to make Campaign literature for the fall men the exigencies of apolitical party have never yet risen to the dignity of the question of privilege. Further there 1b in Thea Resolution a proposition that the committee shall have the right to Alt in recess. Neither of these propositions can be adopted by a majority vote and i therefore Reserve that Point of order until Opportunity shall arise. I am glad st least after the Long threat that has been banging Over the country that these gentlemen in the language of Shaks Peare have left off their Damnable facet and be gun and now it i me play go of. Lappi Ause on the Kip Toucan or. Mills argued that the Resolution did not present a question of privilege. In order to make it a question of privilege under the constitutional provision the Resolution must co Talu a charge against the president of sufficient Gravity to justify the House in put plug him on trial for impeach ment. Or. Cox n. A read an extract from me decision of the electoral commission in the Florida Case and charged a fled one of the commissioners with having either a convenient con science or convenient logic. It seemed to him Cox that whatever Steps might be then to reach that great transaction the gentleman fron Ohio held they were outside the record Algunde. So Farad the question of privilege was concerned there was a question of High privilege non constant that it must Lead to impeachment. Or. I o ter held that the privilege asked for was Only the pro Pelege of having now considered the Resolution presented. The privilege to which the Resolution was entitled arose from the fact that it had been set in motion first by the Public formal action of a Sovereign state and second from me nature of the subject matter to which it referred the gentlemen on the other Side bad bean Quick to acciare main be Trotter would sat mat me purpose or the Resolution was Tolm peace and in seat the president or the United states they would admit it waa in order mat be Leonnea to declare if that construction Given to the Rule by the gentleman from Maine Hale was right that limitation of privilege in r. Ference to me election of a president is an inquiry in reference to Nis elec Tion before he is seated of with a View to unseat lne him that was a construction which would forever prohibit the House from inquiring into frauds that Naa been Ana which bad come in knowledge after their Sii Cess Rul accomplishment if there waa anything in the nature of fraud making it Neil Ramie to de inquired into. It was when train had been Success Lul. And if me House refused to inquire because frauds bad succeeded then the commission of Auch frauds would be encouraged and fati ure to investigate so Lar imm securing Wouita Jeo Para ize the peace Aud Security of the country. The chair decides Resolution to be a of privilege. The 8peaker the Issue involved la a new one in me history of tit count in and an Examina Tion of the basis in which the preamble and Reso Lution Are introduced is proper. The legislature of Maryland passed a joint Resolution touching the subject treated of in the preamble and Resolution just read. A copy of mat Resolution of Mary land has been remitted to this House and has been referred to a committee and is within the knowledge of the members of the House wherein the following language is used that full effect Baa not been Given to the electoral Vole cast by the slate or Maryland on ihe6ih Day or novem ber 1676. By reason of fraudulent returns made irom owner states and ail Owea to de counted pro by the electoral commission and subject to judicial revision. It further alleges that returns from Louisiana and Florida which were cast for the present occupant of the presidential chair Wen fraudulent Aud void. Here is the a peal r a slate or this Union to the Federal legislative pow Fri r a correction or a great grievance said to have been com i Ted in the states or Louisiana and Florida again. Theryll hts of the state or Maryland in having by fraud. In said states of Norma Ami Louisiana produced a of herein re ult in the election of a president and vice presi Dent from that actually decreed by the people themselves at the polls. Whether tuese allegations can be sustained by proof la uni for the chair consider it is enough Tor the a flair to know they come from a Power which within the limits recognized As Sovereign by the Constitution and that Issue involved runs to the welfare or me people or All states. Nor la it within the Range of propriety for me chair to express an Opi Lou As How far Auch an Loveat Glaum should go in or der to reach lbs facts nor who t limits should go order to Naca in acts not Wal limit should be set upon it. A higher privilege then the one Here involved and broadly and directly presented As to the rightful occupancy of the chief executive chair of the government and the connection of High government officials a Ltd Tho frauds alleged the chair is unable to conceive. The chair finds enumerated among the qty Antiona of privilege set Down in the manual the following election of the chair therefore Rulea that the preamble and Resolution embrace questions of privilege of the highest character and the chair recognizes the right of the gentleman from new York to answer the same. Applause on the democratic Side of the Chambor the other Points of course Are held in Reserve an Appeal made and Laid on the table. Or. Conger appealed from the decision of the chair. Or Potter moved to Lay the Appeal on the table and the motion was agreed to yeas 128, nays 108 this was a party Voto with the exception of messes. Fort Mitchell and Butler who voted with the democrats and messes. Buckler and Mills who voted with the republicans. Or. Conger Alsid the Point of order that As the Resolution give me committee unusual Powers to sit during recess to report at any time and Foi the chair nan of the sub committee to administer oaths it could not be adopted by a More majority vote also that As the Resolution provided for expenditure of Money it must first be considered in Tommu Tenor me whole. Or Sayler argued that committees could by simple majority vote be authorized to sit during recess and be quoted in support of that View precedent in the rate of the famous Gardner in ves cation. He admitted however that in that Case the question bad not been raised. Or. Garfield claimed Bis colleague bad shown no precedent that bad any Force tie bad never Beard it claimed that a proposition to sit during recess cum de adopted by a Mero majority vote. The speaker ruled that As to the right of the chairman of to administer oaths that waa a matter to he decided by the committee it Elf. If it was contrary to Law then it did not matter whether Power was Given by a or of a majority vote. After an argument As to the Rule applying to the Oase in which messes. Thompson Butler Sayler and Casswell participated the speaker overruled the Point or order As to the Power of the commit tee to sit daring recess. The next Polit discussed. As on the Niit of the in Armau of Lees to administer Oats. The speaker overruled the Point of order on the ground that if the House should authorize the appointment of la the manner provided the chairman of such sub committees would Bave Power under the very words of the statute to administer oaths lie also overruled the Point As to the expenditure of Money. Or. Garfield Theu made a Point of order it required a two thirds vote to give the committee Power to report at any time. The speaker sustained the Point whereupon or. Putter struck out that part of the Resolution. Or. Hale asked or. Potter to yield to him to Olur an amendment. Or. Potter i will yield to the gentleman to state the nature of his amendment. It May be that in the form of an amendment he merely wants to get in a speech. Or. Hale i Tell the gentleman plainly my amendment is not confined to Florida and Louisiana. Or. Potter i decline to yield for the Amend ment. If frauds were attempted in Florida and Louisiana they were carried out successfully and became operative. If the object of the Amend ment of the gentleman from Maine is to show there were frauds in South Carolina by which the electoral vote of that state waa counted for Hayes when it ought to have been cot tiled for Tilden i shall be prepared As to an amendment of that sort but the gentleman irom Maine win not Veu Ture to declare anything of that kind. Or. Hale in other words you mean to aay that any frauds that apply on one Side Are to be looked into and that any frauds committed by the gen tler Tan s own party Are to be excluded is mat it applause on the Republican or. Potter of no. The world of wrong is very wide. If the gentleman wishes to inquire into matter of moral delinquency outside of the two states of Florida and Louisiana i do not object let him introduce his Resolution for that purpose and have himself put at the head of a committee and go into that investigation. Applause on the Binm Gratin Side. I i seek nothing or the kind. Am not aiming at persons. I desire to ascertain if Frond in the electoral vote of the e slates were re ally perpetrated in order mat Buch frauds May de preve lieu urn Rair. Or. Hale a us the gentleman denies any at tempt at investigation where there Are clearly shown frauds me boldest in american history Nam pirated by Hla own party in half a dozen other states. He refuses to let that investigation go to this committee. Or. Potter i will vote for any kind of an investigation that you seek but the amendment you propose is not germane to the Resolution and in tended to Prev Eui Eue Ubau . Or. Hale but me gentleman will not let it go to me committee of which he is the Bead. I do not ask for the appointment of a commute with a Msj Nulty from this aide of the House but i ask that the in Aulov which the gentleman s Resolution proposes be As sweeping As me country desires it to be. Or. Potter Well let the gentleman from Maine sweep the dirt for himself. Laughter on the democratic Side. Or. Hale the gentleman from new York Evi Dently does not mean to sweep. Laughter of the Renu Allcan Side or. Potter no not with the insufficient Broom mat you would like used. Or. Garfield rep., Ohio took the floor but waa met with Calls to order on the democratic Side. Or. Potter said i yield to any one of the vis lying or. Garfield i understood the gentleman from new York to say when he waa first up that be was not seeking to investigate the presidential title but to investigate the question of fraud in me presidential election. Now if that be to i can Only say the gentleman s last position that he will not investigate allege fraud in any state unless the vote or that state was necessary to put the president in the presidential chair is in conflict with mat idea. Object of the Resolution. Or. Potter the gentleman from Ohio says i Bave changed my ground and that i want to at tack the presidential title. Not at All. Whatever May happen to the presidential title As a result of Thia inquiry does not concern me now. I Bave Bald it and i repeat it that i have no purpose of disturbing it. He says if i Only want to invest Gate election frauds the other Side of the House would be glad to go into a general and sweeping investigation. That la one so general that it would never eventuate in any examination at All. But there is Between these two extremes a Verv obvious distinction i ask to investigate. Not with a View to disturbing the president or with any other View to the Aist Roance or settled results i seen to investigate i ran As which operative which were successful la carried out which were effective and a bib were brought to our notice by a memorial or a Sovereign state of the Union. These Are just exactly in two states and do More therefore an investigation looking beyond these two states would not be germane to the Resolution and would be of no particular Seneci. Or. Conger took the floor but was met with loud shouts of order order from the Democrat to Side. He. However succeeded in saying mat if the other Side would not permit Bla Side to take any part in framing a Resolution of inquiry the democratic Side might pass its Resolution if it could l applause on the Kep Toucan aide j or. Potter the gentleman from Michigan is kind. We can do that without Hla permission. But if he will Oner a Resolution to investigate any frauds that he May a it go we will be More Liber Al than he no Hosea. And it will receive me votes of this Side or the House also. Or. Hale i made my proposition in Good Faith. The gentlemen on the other aide have de Ellued it. Now let them go on by them Delvca. Or. Butler will the gentleman from new York Potter allow me to add to his Resolution me words South Carolina. Or. Garfield Mossl Sippl also. Voting on the Resolution. Or. Potter no or. Speaker for the simple Rea son no frauds in South Carolina or Mississippi be came operative. The distinction la of Valoua. I must now insist on me previous question. The Republican Side of me House Hereupon re ported to the parliamentary expedient of with holding their vote to that when the question came to be letter by me tellers Mere were Only 116 aye to 1 no no quorum voting. Or. Potter moved the Hajj of the House which wat mad and All the Republican answered to their names so that no further proceeding under the Call could be taken. Or. Potter then asked the speaker whether if the House adjourned now this question would come up As unfinished business Tobeh Peskor informed him it would remain be fore the House until disposed of. Or Conger and other Republic Ana called upon the democratic aide not to show Algus of weak Ness to Early. The taunt was answered just a defiantly and it waa intimated that the question would remain before the House until there were enough democrats present to constitute a quorum without the Aid of the Republican vote. This will require the presence of at least thirty More democrats than were in the House to Day. Or. Potter moved the House adjourn and the vote waa taken by yeas and Naya. The vote was Theu Ati bounced yeas 118 Naya 110. The House then adjourned. House. The fraud Resolution in House. Washington May 14.

A Call of the House waa then ordered. The Call Dis closing the fact that were 215 present further proceedings under Call were dispensed a feb and the question recurred on seconding the Lor the previous question. The republicans again resorted to filibustering tactics and the House waa left without a quorum me democrats being Able to master Only 113 voters. Or.
