HOW BUSINESS STOOD AT THE CLOSE.
All the annual appropriation bills, except
the legislative, executive and judicial, and
the army bill, were signed by the President
and have become laws together with the bill
making the requisite appropriation to pay
arrears of pension. Conference committees
were in session all night, but were unable to
agree on several of the most important bills.
In the senate the Seward impeachment case
was defeated. Butler's telegraph amendment
was defeated. The legislature and army
bills were defeated, and the Indian territory
improvement bill was defeated. Pollock's
nomination was not taken up, and between
160 and 200 nominations of different kinds
are left unconfirmed.

General Grant entered tbe Presidency with

Philadelphia, Feb. 19, 1879.
What is Gambling?
Chief Justice Thompson, of Pennsylvania
hat given an opinion as to what constitutes
gambling, which being the opinion of the
"rest Of mankind," must be infallibly cor
rect. He says : "Anything which inducea
men to risk their money or property without
any other hope of return than to get for
nothing any given amount from another is
gambling.and demoralizing to tbe commun
ity, no matter by what name- It may be
called." There Is nothing new In that, but
It would be something new to have tho laws
put in force and gambling suppressed. There
should be no splitting of hairs, and it would
not be a bad Idea to make a raid on Wall
street, tbe greatest gambling den on tbe
continent, and tbe most demoralizing of
them all. Ine Judge wisely says in cen
elusion : "All gambling Is Immoral, and
we apprehend that tbe losses Incident to the
practice disclosed within the past five yean
nave contributed inure to tbe failure and
embezzlement by public officers, clerks,
ageutt and others actlug In fiduciary rela
tions, public and private, than any other
causes ; and the worst of it is, that in the
rain or its evil there Is a vast amount of
mbery and suffering by persons entirely
guillhss of any participation In tbe cause
Hayes has called a special sovtlon of Con
gress to meet on tbe 18th lust.
HOW HAYES WAS MADE PRESIDENT.
On Saturday last Mr. Potter, theohalr-
man olthe Investigating committee, submit
ted tho report which be had prepared to tho
committee and it was adopted by the vote
of six Democrats to thrco Republicans pres
ent. Messrs. iiiscock, uox anu iieeu, win
Iirepare n minority report and General Hut
er will draw up a separate statement, giving
his views in reierence to tne oargain.wun
the Hayes party by which the Democrats
recovered the States of South Carolina and
Louisiana. Mr. Stenger, Democratic mem
ber of the committee, who was chairman of
the sub-cummittee In IjOuUlana, has also
prepared a reort. Mr. Potter's report Is
necessarily long, as It doals with all the
points that hate beeu before the committee
except tbe cipher dispatches, which will he
made the subject ol n separate report and
will be presented to the committee to mor
row. Sir. Potter's report Is regarded by the
Democrats who have perused It as singular
ly Impartial an J judicial. It is entirely de
void both of rhetorical ornamentation and
vituperative denunciation, and derives its
torce solely from n close, logical deduction
of the facts presented to the committee.
Some of the Democrats regard It as wanting
In color or not so strongly expressed as the
facts warrant, lind it is not unlikely that
some member of the committee belonging
to the party will present an additional ex
pression of their views, more vigorously de
nouncing the Presidential election frauds
and the persona connected with them.
THE SCOPE OF THE RErORT.
Th6 report opens with an introduction
which sets forth what was proper for Con
press, tn investigate and what not, and the
difficulty of conducting an investigation in
to conspiracies which have been successfully
carried out while the successful party rehiain
iu power." It admits that the confessions of
conspirators who have become dissatisfied
are worth little, but points to the fact not
generally understood that about tho essential
features of the election and canvass in I1 loci
da and Louisiana there is no substantial dis
oute before the committee, tbe Republicans
iiaving called no witnesses iu Florida and
few in Louisiana except as to tbe conduct
of the visiting statesmen and Incidentally
about Intimidation. It dismisses entirely
tne tiatlmoney or Anderson, Jenks, Airs,
Jenks. Weber and that class of witness!,
and deals with the case upon the general and
controlling tacts alone, ine report is divid
ed into three parts, the first of which refers
to Florida, the second to Loulslsnna and
the third to the forged electoral certificate,
Beginning wttn norma it cites the law ui
recti nir the Presidential electors to be an'
pointed br the votes cast and the Canvassing
Board to canvass the votes cast, and claims
that the Tilden electors having received a
majority or the votes cast in this state were
therebv neeesarilv entitled to be declared
elected, and that the Canvassing Board, ty
rejecting without warrant of law a portion
ot the votes, so as to show tbe majority for
naves, uniawiuny counted 11 wen out. it
states that tbe Canvassers delayed their an
nouncement until the morning of the day the
electors wrre to meet and vote, so that, al
though action was instantly taken to oust
trie Mayes elector', no decision could be bad
until the Hayes electors bad met that same
any at noon and voted. The report then re
cites the judgment of the Supreme Court,
which subsequently decided tbat the Hayes
electors were not elected, not entitled to cast
the vote of the State, and that the Tilden
electors were, and also the judgment of the
uourt in tne action brought bv Drew, tbe
Democratic candidate for Govdrnor. to ob
tain a recanvass, where the Court directed a
recanvasa and decided tnat tbe canvassers.
in reluiinir to count tbe votes cast, had de
frauded Drew and unlawfully seated 'Stearns
. L. Tl 1. 1 : TIL V. I .
State thereupon directed a recanvast of the
electoral vote: In accordance with this de
cxion of the Supreme Court, the Judges of
wnicn were republicans, and tbe recanvats
showed tbat the Tilden electors were chosen,
Tbe Governor then issued his certificate to
the Tilden electors as the true electors but
tbe Llecteral Commission refused to consul
er tbe judgment of the court, the action of
tne legislature and tbe certificate given by
the Governor in favor of the Tilden electors
and held tbat it could not take notice of any
scu?n ny tne Dtate alter tne etn or Decern
PROVIDING AOAINbT FUTURE WRONGS.
The report draws attention to the fact tbat
toch a wrong might be repeated in any
State, at any Presidential election, by the
canvassers witnoiaing tne announcement ol
the result of the election until the dav fixed
for tbe meeting of the Electoral College and
men ncciaring persons who bad never been
voted for at alt to be electors, when, accord
ing tn this decision, such electors would be
entitled irrevocably to cast tbe vote or tbe
State. It therefore recommends a law pro
viding that whero there was dispute as to
who were tbe real electors of any State, the
judgment of its court of last resort, if certi
fiea to Congress before the meeting of the
two houses ot Congress to receive and count
the electoral vote, shall be conclusive as tn
the right of tbe disputing electors and of
wnicu vote irom tne state shall be counted
unless tbe two houses of Congress shall oth
Tbe report then argues tbat the action of
me uanvaxsing iMard was not only Illegal
but fraudulent, and cites tbe Instance iu
wnicn tney rejected Democratic votes on un
warranted - erounds and refused to reject
fraudulent Republican votes as illustrating
this. It deals at length with tbe claim of
tne republicans tbat tbey were entitled to
the vote of tbe Slate on the face of the re
turns by leason of the Drieirer fraud, bv
which a bogus return from Baker county was
lurnianea tne uanv&ssmg Hoard, which they
at first rejected, but which after they were
ordered to count tbe vote as cast, ther fraud
ulently took in place of the trne return. It
then deals with the conduct of tbe visiting
statesmen, and particularly that of Mr.
Noyes. as contrasted with that of General
Francis C. Barlow, whose fidelity to all his
oiigauons ana integrity, inaepenaence.fatr
ness and truth tbe report especially com'
LOUISIANA FRAUDULENTLY COUNTED.
In regard to Louisiana, the report begins
with a reference to the anomalous power
possessed by tbe returning Board, which, it
says, never before existed elsewhere. Under
It tbe electors and the returning officers held
the grossest power over tbe recelvlox and
counting of votes. Under tbe pretext tbat
tbe color line divided the political parties,
they had used this power to fraudulently
count the State for the Republicans, and had
been exposed by tbe Republican committee
of the Forty-third Congress, which had re
ported that the whites and blacks of tbe
State being equal, and some of tbe blacks
and all tbe whites having voted for tho
Democrats in le74.tbe State had neeeessari-
ly been carried by them, although counted
for the Republicans. Hereupon the Repub
licans set about a false census, in which they
madelt appear that there were 25,000 more
black voters in tbe State than white, and as
illustrating the fraudulent return of this
census, tbe report refers to the fact tbat
while this census reported but 67,000 colored
men, women and children In New Orleans,
it made out of them nearly 25.000 colored
voters. It then instances tbe fraudulent
registration tbat was based upon this fraudu
lent census wherebv it was made to innrir
that tbe registered Republican voters exceed
ed the white voters in the State by 23.000,
while actually there were no more, and tbe
refusal of tbe authorities to correct this false
registration in oases where its falseness was
pointed out. From this the report recites
iue uirecuon oy tne republican authorities
to the supervisors of parishes reauir ine them
to return the votes according to tbe census,
that is, stating tbat the colored adults by
tbat census in their parishes were 101111117.
ami mai mey were expecieq 10 return a re
publican vote corresponding to that if thev
ever expected any reward or preferment.
Notwithstanding this orranised fnnd. nv
the report, when the elections were over the
Democrats had a makiritv. as returned bv thn
Republican elcotion officers, of some ten thou

od powers not given to tlicm. In support of I
this, the report cites the finding of the Hoar, I
Wheeler and Frvn cntntnlttro. tbat Ilia tin
taming Board had no power to discard votes
where protests, as required by law, had not
accompanied tho returns, no lnlniioo cf
whioh existed at this election. Notwithstand
ing this, the Returning Hoard decided to dis
card the necessary number of Dcmocratio
votes. As a pretext for this usurpation they
obtained protests from certain parishes which
they picked out as tho parishes in which to
protend intimidation had taken place Thesq
parishes were all largely of negro population
which' tho Democrats had fairly carried. Tho
report then deals with the nuesllnn of Intiml
Uatinn and arguos that it was impossible for
the Democrats to gain anything by it. becauso
Iho Returning Hoard had been created on pur
poso tn neutraliio such action by throwing out
votes in localities where it should prevail. It
recites the outrsgcous conduct of the sntno Re
turning Hoard in that respect in 1874, 'and
how its action had boon condemned by tho
Forty-third Conirre-s, giving iustancos whero
they had counted in officials without a col
or of right, men whom the Congrcssionlil
committee had caused lo bo turned out and
their places given to Democrats. Tho Demo
crats know that not only they could gain noth
ing by intimidation, but that they could only
hojio forsonioshowiifjiistieob avoiding any
thing which might bo madn a pretcno for al
leging It. Tho report then reoitos tho efforts
that wcro malo throughout tbo State by tho
Democrats toconciliato tho blai k voto, show

having joined tho Domocrats, tbo whole mass
of tho negroes became nuite enthusiastic
supporters, and thus tho voto in some of
go called bull-dozed parishes was the largest
As to the conspiracy in Kast Feliciana par
ish the report states that after the Democrats
had conciliated tho negroes there Kellogg
wanted Anderson, who was tho supervisor,
to havo no election, and Anderson fraudulent
ly ran away wiih that view to furnish an ox
cusc for throwing the parish out, as Grant
parish was thrown out, becauso of the super
visor of registration absenting himself on cloc
tion day, notwithstanding the otheroIEcor held
tho el'Ction and made one return of the voto.
The Democrats iu E.Feliciana, knowing that
they had captured the negro voto, hired An
derson to go go back and hold tho dec' ion.
Tho Itepublicans then hit upon a now plan,
and directed their friends in tbo parish not to
vote, so as to oretend intimidation and excludo
tho parish. They sent out word to their
followers out to como to tho polls, rctuscd to
permit any tickets to bo printed or circulated,
and exercised their infiuenco to withhold thoir
own vote entirely. Eighteen hundred regis
tered votes were cast, and 450 moro, which
Anderson had provented from being register
ed, made about 2,300 votPs cast, all Demo
cratic, but not ono Republican would vote.
though urged to do so. Tho whole vote of
the parish at previous elections, both sides,
had no't exceeded 2,500. Tho Republicans
who purposely withheld casting any vbtcs at
all, and subsequently mailt-a claim that they
had been intimidated and could not vote, and
the Returning Board, on this pretext, pur
posely prearranged, excluded the vote of tho
parish. The report then refers to tho sup
plementary papers obtained from Anderson
and Don Weber, both of whom were known
by tbe Republicans to be for sale ; tbat after
these supervisors had made returns that there
was no violence in their parishes, tbey were
induced to make supplementary protests, and
that they both confessed they did this becauso
of reward. In other parishes, where officers
had seen and certified to a perfectly fair elec
tion, Kellogg by pressure exacted liko false
Erotests. The report then goes on to state
ow the Returning Boad, having got posses
sion of such unlawful protests, proceeded to
tako evidence, Unired States officers and mon
ey being used to bring ignorant negroes from
tbe interior field into a great city, whero they
were herded together, taken before officials
and had affidavits written down for them, to
which, upon making their marks, they receiv
ed their fees and were sent homo. The process
of manufacturing these affidavits is set forth
to show how the negroes were imposed upon
and how worthless the affidavits were. As
illustrative of how utterly reckless the Re
turning Board was in considering evidence,
it points out that in Kast Feliciana only 26
witnesses to any kiniLpf disturbance could be
collected. The distunianco to which they tes
tified had arisen from cotton seed Jand other
thefts by negroes and their suppression, which
had been conducted by leading Republicans,
had nothing to do with politics, aud althouch
this and the faet that the election was entire
ly peaceablo and tho Republicans purposely
refused to vote was shown by 1200 witnesses,
and although four-fifths of tho negroes in the
parish actually did vote with tho Democrats,
the Returning Board threw out tbo whole
OUTRAOR3 BY THE RETUR NINO BOARD.
The report points out a great many other
instances of what it styles the fraudulent.out
raeousand desperate character of theltn-
turning Board, and shows the impossibility of
tucir wuaiueriug iau testimony oeiore mem,
as they had more than could be read by a
man reading ten hours a day in two weeks ;
when tbey went into consultation and bow the
next day their intended decision was known
and indeed never had been in doubt. Every
thing connected with them was a travesty on
justice and showed bow absolutely abandoned
ana unscrupulous tney wero. I ho report states
tbat tbe llcturnini Board would never have
so outraged the people but for their encour
agement from the vkitiog statesmen and the
support which tbey and the troops gavo them.
Then follow details of how some of the visi
tors were deceived by local managers and in
nocently oo-operated in tho fraud) of the Re
turning. Board, while others did not. !lt refers
very briefly to the alleged bargain, by which
Hayes, who had 3,000 less votes than Pack
ard, got counted in while Packard went out,
and mentions Mr. Sherman's offer to prove in
timidation, but points out that whenever thn
committee offered to rcceivo it tho cvideuco
was not produced, and they were met by some
sham excuso for not producinz it ; how they
naa examined many witnesses that were before
tho Returning Boatd, who. in almost every
instance, recanted and explained how tbnv
came to make their falso affidavits iu tho first
place, and how such statements as they made
before the Returning Board were totally un'
founded. It then refers to the Sherman let

Clarke; bow the making of this second cer
tificate was concealed until it was produced bo
lore Congress ; how when it was referred to
the Electoral Commission it wiw not rear!
ordered to he printed, and the printer was
changed and the Electoral Commission were
served with two printed copies of the forgel
certificate, perfect in form, and no oopy of
the genuine but defective certificate ; how,
after tbe Commission had decided, the rvMnl
ol the commission was changed, so that the
forged certificate, copies of which were really
belore the Commission, wore suppressed and
tbe record made to show as if the genuine de
fective certificate bd been considered and
passed upon ; how this was not accident bnt
design, that not only in one of the published
records of the nrooeedinirs of tha Kl.tnrul
Commission, but in both, although made
months apart ; how the Republican managers
were iaiormod bv Kelloir that ihm
something wrong about the tetond oartilcatc,
and how, all the way through, then lies a
thread of design to Imposo the'fbrged eertifi
cate upon Congress anJ then bo suppressed
it, to (bit, if discovered, tho rcootd micht
show os if it had ntver been produced. Tbo
burlciquo ( John'8mith) certificate, rent from
Louisiana by rrrail after tho forged cert! ficnto
and suppressed nd which cannot now bo
found, it rcgards'as part of the same fraud, its
object being to mislead and draw off attention
from'tho forged certificate.
rOROT.nS GETTING OOOD POSITIONS.
Tho report then reclles how alt tbo persons
connected with tho forgery have been appoint
ed to offico nnd tbo suspicious circumstances
connected with tbo appointment of somo ;
particularly charges tbat Kellogg and'Olatk,
his privato secretary ,weto privy to tho forger
ies. The report winds up with refcrenco to
the danger of Returning t Hoards and tho
grcttor dangor of controlling elections and
protecting canvassing boards by Federal troops
and abive all 'to Iho erownln? danger with
which the country is threatened by reaonof
tho enormous patronage centered in tho Pres
idency, which makcstlio Presidential offico n
prizo so great that, in order to control, the
grossest frauds and violations of tho law may
bo expected on tho part of thoso who dciro
to profit by that patronage. It concludes with
tho finding that tho full effect was not given
to tbo electoral Votes of Florida nnd Louisi
ana : that Noycs, Sherman and others encour
aged this result ; that the second certiBcato
from JiOiilsiana was forged as lo two of its
names, Kellogg and Clark bein? privy to it,
and that Tilden nndIIcndrioks received a truo
majority of tho electoral voto nnd wcro tho
real choico of tho pcoplo of tho United States
at tne last I'rcsidennal election,
How (he President hives.
The course of the President has, of course
set the people talking about his manner of
living, and tho comments are not very com
plimtntary. Indeed, the President Is acens
ed of being unbecomingly economical not
to put too fine a point on It. Tho President
receives an annual salary of $50,000 a
good, round income, It must be confessed
There Is no way of finding nufall of his
pickings or allowances, but 'soma of them I
am able to mention, In tbe first placo he
gets his house rent and furniture free. Not
a curtain, or chair or blanket or napkin or
towel does he have to buy. All his fuel is
furnished by the government and not a cent
does he have to pay for gas. His veceta-
bles are raised In the publio gardens by a
gardener paid by the government and so are
his cook and his coachman. Hownany
nmer servants ourgood government pays for
1 ao not Know, but so far as II can sec. Mr.
Hayes' expenses In tha Whlto House aro for
meats and grocones. Even his doctor and
his medicine are paid for by the government.
Even his beef comes from the government
butcher, and he pays only the cost price
wnicn tne government paid on the hoof. In
. U . I . . .
umcr nurun, lag government buys an ox
alive for beef, paying, say four cents per
pound. The President gets tho beef at the
same rate, but his steward is nut fool enough
to take the legs, the neck, tbe head or the
rump, and so the White House table is sup
plied with sirloin steak, tenderloin steak,
porter-house Bteak and rib roasts for fonr
cents por pound, whilo tho department
clerk on $1,200 a year, pays from fifteen to
twenty cents per pound fcr his beef. 'The
Commissary of Subsistence has to kill beef
lor rations for the soldiers and it has long
been the practice to givo the President, the
army officers and the high civil officers beef
and groceries at prime cost. The reader has
now a pretty fair idea of what the President
has to buy. Tho president;does not buy wine
or liquors how economical temperance 1st
Wines have always been a big item in the
White House, for it was never conducted on
temperance principles before. Wines being
out of the question and all advantages
counted, will any head of the household
who is accustomed to good living fell me
that it costs Mr. Hayes moro than $10,000 a
year to live 7 If the family is charitable
have uot heard of It True, a boquet of
flowers is occasionally Bent to a fair hospital
but, bless you, the flowers were raised iu
government conservatory cared for by a gov
ernment florist. Even lu the summer time
the President Days no house rent, but lives
in a house belonging to the old soldiers of
the country and supported by contributors
from the soldiers in thf regular army. When
the question is solved as to whether tho
.'resident is not living 00 $10,000 a year.
will somebody please tell ma for what pur
pose $50,000 a year is given to the President?
Is it not to enable him to live iu a manner
becoming a Chief Magistrate f I have talk
ed with many experienced gentlemen, and
it is the common opinion here that Mr,
Hayes is saving from his salary about $40,,
000 a year. True, it will be a good thing
for young Mr. Webb Hayes and the other
two sons, and this, no doubt, is a sufficient
reason for Mr. Hayes' course. Would it not
be in keeping If he would, just before retir
ing from office, recommend the reduction of
the Presidential salary on the ground that
ine services are not, equal to the compensa
tion 1 i nuaaeipma Timet vorresponaent.
Mr. Smith on llallding Associations.
There is a bill before the Legislature to
allow building associations to charge two
per cent, per month on all arrearages oi
premiums. It is Btrongly opposed by Hon.
John B, Smith, of this county, who moved
to amend the bill by making it one-half per
cent instead of two. He made the fjllow
ing Bneech on the sublect.
"My object, Mr. Speaker, in offering that
amendment is because I believe a majority
of this house are in favor of six per cent, in
terest ; and why should we let such God.
forsaken concerns as those building and loan
associations eharge two per cent, a month.
"hen six per cent, is enough for any man to
. pay as much as any man can afford to nav
in these times. A very great proportion of
the sales on execution are by these associa
tions, and they have robbed the whole com
munity. Sir, it Is my opinion, and I be
lieve it Is tbe opinion of this house, that six
per cent, interest is as high a rate as ought
to be allowed to be charged, cither by build
Ing and loan associations, banks, or anybody
else. There is a great deal said here about
retrenchment and reform. I think it is
about time we commenced it practically.
Of course, there is a law upon the statute
book allowing those associations to take
whatever they please, but I do not propose
to cast my vote to allow them to charge any
thing above one-half per cent a month. I
do not care what the law has been hereto
fore. I say that any law that allows a high
rate ought to be repealed."
We havo not always agreed with Mr.
Smith's ideas of right, but In this matter we
certainly do agree with him most heartily,
A Haven Standard. .
The bauner of despair floats no longer over
people who suffer froc klduey troubles, tor
pid livers, piles and diseases which come
from inactive" bowels, after a few doses of
Kidney-Wort. For piles it works pleasantly
and with healing effects.
Mr. Hayes has vetoed the Antl-Chlnese
Bill, aud the veto was sustained iu the
Houne, where the measure originated, by a
vote of 109 yeas to 95 nays, less than the
oeeessary two thirds to pass it over the
All Cla'aud fur It.
S. Havlland, Salix; Iowa, says of the Per
fected Butter Color of Wells, Richardsen A
Co., Burlington, Vt. "I find it to be all
that Is fjlaimed. It increases the telling
priee of my butter from 21 to 25 cents."
At last the definitive treaty between Rus
sia nnd Turkey has been signed, Its object
being to carry Into tffect tluS Berlin treaty
and such parts ol the treaty of fiati Stefano
as were not affected by It. Turkey, after
deducting the value of tho reded territories,
will bane to pay $100,500,000 to Russia
nnd $5,335,000 to Russian subjects In Tur
key for losses sustained during tho war.
Hot Turkey can raise nearly $1C8,000,000
lo make these payments Is a serious ques
tion, the solution of which must be left to
tlmo and the chapter of accidents. At this
moment, Turkey's accumulated National
debt, with ntrears of Interest fmm October,
1871, amounts to $1,000,000,000, and the
whole revenue of tho empiro for 1878-79 Is
estimated at only $70,000,000. IVett.

Washington, March 3. The Supreme
Court mot to-day after a recess of four weeks
Mr.Justico Hunt who it is frared will never
again take his seat, was the only absentee. A
large crowd was attracted to tho court room
In anticipation of Mr, Kiddle's motion to
admit Jlrj.J.ockwood to practice, a similar
motion having been denied two years ago on
account of the candidate's sex. On tbo pres
ent occasion no objection was raised, atid for
tho first tlmo In tbo history of this court n
woman's name stands on tho roll of its prac
titioners. A New England Showman named Gur
nella gives exposures, or imitations of spiri
tualistic performances. Previous to his regu
lar exhlbltionin Nntlck,bo permitted a com
mittee lo haudcuff him and lock him in a
cell of tbe jail. With in five minutes after
being left alone, he emerged from tho prison
free of tho handcuffs, nnd said: "You see
that it would be impossible to keep mo im
prisoned.' Tho secret of the trick wasjthat be
had secured duplicate keys, hiding them in
his mouth while tho committee was search
ing him; but this was not made public and
his escape was regarded as, almost mlracul
bus.JOn the following day he stole $3 from
his landlord, and was put in to the same
cell again. A multitudo gathered around the
jail, aud expecting to see hlra walk out at
will, but he didn't.
With alum in his bread, coloring matter in
