O., April 31, 1377. Sir : Prior to my en
tering upon the duties of the Presidency
there had been stationed, by order of uy
predccessor,iii tho Slate House at Cultiinliui,
S. 0 a detachment of Uniteil riiates Infnii
tr. Finding them In that place I have
thought proper to delay a decision of tho
question of their removal until I could con
sider and determine whether the condition
of 'alTair in that State is now such as to
oitker rcnilra or jus'ify the continued mili
tary occupation of the Stato House.
In my opinion there does now not exist in
that State such domestic violence as is con
templated by the Constltu'ion as the ground
upon which the military power of tne Na
tions! Governmeut may be invoked for the
defence of the State. There are, It is true,
grave and serious disputes as to the rights
of certain claimants to the Chief Executive
office, of that State.but these are to be settled
and determined, not by the Kxecutive of the
I'nlted-States ,but by such orderly and peace
able methods as may be provided by the
Constitution nnd laws of the State.
I feel assured that no resort to violence is
cintemplate.1 in any quarter, but that, on
the contrary, tho disputes iu question are to
hi settled solely by such peaceable remedies
as the Constitution aud laws of the State pro
vide. Under these circumstances, aud in this
confidence, I now deem it proper to take
action In accordance with the principles an
nounc'd when I entered upm the duties of
the Presidency. You are, therefore, direct

removal of said troops from the Stato House

proportion to the popular vote. A direct
popular vote for Preeidena is secured by this
plan while politically the power of the smal
lerstatcs in preserved, and the objection to the
choice of a President by the whole mass of
voters is avoided. Mr. Buckalew shows that
by a proportional distributing of votes, as iu
this amendment, the chances of a disputed
diction such as the last would be almost cx-
tinguLJicdj that it excludes the temptation
to falsity or manipulate returns ; that it
would render almost iiuposiblc the election
of a minority candidate ; arid that it would
secure justice by giving fair representation to
the peoplo aud applying the majority rule to
the electoral instead of the popular vote. It
will discourage frauds in elections by removing
the temptation to commit them. With a ra
tio of thirty thousand for an electoral vote a
fraudulent vote of ten thousand in Philadel
phia or New Orleans would mean one-third
of an electoral vote instead of meaning the
political balauce of power aud the decision of
a presidential election. In a great state liket
Pennsylvania or New York a fraudulent voto
of even thirty or forty thousand would affoct
but one out of the whole number cast by the
state, instead of transferriug the whole thirty
or forty electoral votos from one candidate tu
the other. The plan of district voting for
electors, as for members of the house of rep
resentatives, that has been suggested would1
not extirpate the evil of corrupt elections, for
the ba!auce-of-Kwer vote iu each district
would be the object of money expenditure:
and evil influence. Ten thousaud fraud
ulent votes in n state might control half a doz
en oi more districts, while they would bo en
tirely lost when counted in the aggregate
vote of a state and assipnol to candidates in
proportion to tho votes received by them.
