A Brief Hlßlory ol the Presidential
For the last sixteen years the Re
publican party had control of the
United States Government, and un
til within a few years, of a majority
of the several state governments.
Eight years ago Gen. Grant was
elected President by a large majority
of popular votes and electors. The
country hoped for great things from
the great roibiary chieftain, but un
fortunately were sadly disappointed
in their expectations. From the
very first did Grant give painful
proofs of incapacity and bungling.
His appointments were generally un
fortunate. and had a tendency to es
trange Jhe best statesmen in the
Republican carty from his ad minis
tration. Bat it was during his se
cond term that he developed his
true nature more fully. He showed
liis partisanship, stubbornness and
utter selfishness in the most glaring
light. For four long years did of
fcial corruption, venality and an
utter disregard for the wishes and
interests of the people, reign su
preme in oar nation capital. A
fearful ilnancia) crisis was inevitable
and itms—of longer duration, suore
wide-spread, more disastrous in its
results than any that had preoeeded
it. In its woetul irain thousands
were brought to utter rain—rich
and poor alike —until the country
was brought to a-condition the like
of which was not seen since the Dec
laration of Independence was first
read, one hundred years ago. There
never was a time ia the history of
this fair land when every department
of industry wa3 so utterly parubzed
—everydegitimate enterprise so com
pletely prostrate. To-day more men ;
lire out of employ—more people suf
fering for the most common necessa
ries of life—in truth it is harder for
honest industry to make a decent J
living than at any former period of
•our history. Acd all this while our
rulers—chosen to further cur inter
ests—revel in luxury and wealth,
iu corruption and crime ol every
Wearily the years of suffsiing and
endurance roped ou, and the euu of
Grant's administration approached.
The two great parties brought forth
their candidates. The aspirants in
the Republican carty, quarreling
over the rich prize, were obliged to
compromise on Gov. Hayes, of Ohio,
an amiable, inoffensive gentleman,
with no positive record as a states
man whatever. The Democrats,
having learned wisdom by sad ex
perience, wisely discarded the old
party ruts of the past, and nominat
ed Gov. Tilden, a statesman of un
doubted ability,—fully identified
with the wauts and duties of the
present. The issue was clearly de
fined. Reform was the battle-ory
oa the one side—nob as an idle catch
vote phrase, but as a living reality,
intensified by a candidate who was
the very embodiment of the principle.
The people, the teeming millions,
the boue and sinew of the country,
were enthusiactic for Tilden's elec
tion. On the side of Haves was ar
rayed the Administration of Grant,
the National Treasury, Federal bay
onets, and an army of office holders,
expectants and camp followers. The
campaign was the most hotly con
tested for years, but right prevailed
andTilden was triumphantly eleotnd,
receiving a popular majority of 257,-
249 votes, md a majority of 23 elec
tors liut the Republican leaders,
principally Grant, Chandler and the
Camerons, drunken with office and
power, formed a conspiracy to defeat
this emphatic voice of the people.
Their fist went forth that Florida
and Louisiana must be wrested from
Tilden. In the Return Boards of
both states they found their willing
tools. By a system of fraud the
most open and unblushing, both
•tates were forced into the Hayes
count by a set of villians compared
to whom the Fve Point thieves of
New York are saints, and the result
was made to say 185 for Hayes and
184 for Tilden.
The country was shocked. Dan
ger was fast brewing. Troops were
harried from distant points to Wash
ington, to be used by the conspira
tors to give practical effect to the
gigantic fraud. The threatening
cloud of Revolution began to gather
and hang like a pall over the coun
try. The shattered business inter
ests of the qountry bepatpe ajarmcd.
In this dire emergency the Electoral
Commiseion bill wag born, and hail
ed all over the country as the har
binger of peace. It found its warm
est advocates among the Democrats,
its bitterest opponantg were the Re
publicans/ Edmunds in the Senate
j and Hoar in the House, advocated
I the passage of the bill with simh
seeming candor that the Democrats
; were led to believe they intended
scting honestly in the matter, and
by this artful trick mainly secured
its passage. The Commission, to
whom the disputed states were to
be refered, was marls up of five mem
bers of Congress, five United States
Senators, and Ave Judges of the Su
preme Court of the U. S., as follows :
Congressmen Hoar and Garfield.
Republicans, and Paine, Iluutonaud
, Abbott, Democrats. Senators Ed
: rounds, Frelinghuvsen and Morton,
Republicans, and Bavard and Thur
| roan. Democrats. Judges Miller,
i Strong and Bradley, Republicans,
and Clifford and FeUl, l)emcrats—
eight Republicans and seven Demo
crats. It. was hoped that the Su
preme Judges at least would rise
: above party and decide for justice,
but alas ! they did not.
The count proceeded without liin
! drance until Florida was reached.
| The ease was fully and ably argued.
I The I)enn srats and a few Republi
cans plead for right, for law, for
. justice, but Uu eight Republicans
; oil the Com invasion turned a denf
ear to every thing but t'e behests of
party—ruled that no evidence should
be taken,—no witnesses heard !O !
iye gods, what sublime mockery ! !
; What a grand farce, in the snored
name of justice and law !! ! Three
1 Judges of the Supreme Court of the
j tin ted Sfa'es—Miller, strong and
j Bradley, three United Suite* S-na
; tors—Morton, Edmunds and Fre
linghuvsvn and two membra of
Congrees—Hoar and Garfield, sol
emnly declare that they decide the
' greatest lawsuit that ever occurred
in this country, without going into
| the merits of the case at all—with
out admitting a single witness.
In the case of Isiiiisiana the eight
Republicans acted siill worse. Al
though the state voted for Tildenby
a majority f some 10. QUO votes, a
' pack of unhung criminals known as
the Return Board, who. after offer
ing to sell the elector*! vote of the
state to the highest bidder, finally
turned it over to Haves. The fact
•f falsification, frami and perjury,
were patent to the whole counuy,
yet the inimitable eight of the Com
mission decide that they cannot go
liehind the action of the Return
Board, ih.it Louisiana must stand as
fixed by this set of uiorai and politi
In the ease of Oregon the beanti
ful eight reverse their ruling in the
Florida case, and decide that they
can go behind the action of tlie Re
turn Boaid—just far enough to
count the state for Haves. Thus
the great fraud is consummated, the
weak and imbecile Hayes is declared
elected, and corruption has another
lease of four years.
Wefefcl lumilUfed and mortified.
For the first time in a life of nearly
forty five years, we feel ashamed
that we are an American citizen ! i
What of the future, will it always
be thus ? No. The Government
mav he eor-upt to the core, but the
people are honest, conservative and
patriotic. It is due to the enduring j
patience of the Conservative masses I
that we have peace throughout the I
land, instead of bloody revolution
and bitter party war.
The day of retribution will come
swiftly and those who have soen
the storm will reap the whirlwind.

R. B. ITayea was privately sworn
in as President of the United States
-to which he never was elected— at i
the White llousc on Saturday even
ing. over twelve hours before Presi
dent Grant's rerm had expired. In
his indecent haste to get possession
of the stolen office, Ilayes makes a
most pittiable figure of himself. It
will avail him nothing. An outrag
ed nation mav submit to the infamy,
hut the stamp of fraud 18 so in
delibly fixed upon his imbecile brow
that, all the waters of the Mississippi
and Missouri combined, can never
wash it out. All the fine words of a
labored inaugural—all the fair prom
ises of a conservative administration
can never efface the fact that he is
simply a receiver of stolen goods
We turn from the humiliating pic

the fact that this is
