THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION.
On the '20th iust., the fcfenate- and 4
House being in joint session, continued 1
the count of the electoral vote by Mates I

was reached, when objection was made 1
bj Tucker to the eleven voles of that
State being counted tor Hayes because
one Uenton ITanchet, who had been
elected as an elector and who was in
eligible becauee he held at Hie time
and still hold, tho ottoo of TT S. Com.
mibsiouer. had absented himself lrorn
the electoral college and his place been
filled by said college, which selected
Daniel Li. Croesman to fill "Iris place,
The Senate tlien retired to allow each
House to consider the matter. Sonth
moved that the House take a recess
until the next day. The: motion was
lost 192 nays to 59 ayes.-, .lencks'
substitute tor Tucker'6 resolution, which
Was that llanchet, not having exercised
the duties f office tor twelve year, the
vote of the elector objected to should
be counted, was adopted. : In the Senate
it was resolved that the evidence was
not sufficient to justify the exclusion of
the vote of Crossman. The Senate,
having been notified of the action of the
House in the matter, proceeded to the
hall of the House to resume tho count.
The vote of Michigan was then counted
for Hayes and Wheeler, Then follow
ed the count of States, without objec
tion, until Nevada was reached, when
Springer objected to TJ. M. Daggett,
one of the electors, on the ground that
at the time of his appointment he was
holding the office of U. S. Commission
er. As Daggett 6tated before the House
committee on powers and privileges that
lie resigned the office on the 6th of No
vember, the objection of Sprenger did
, iot stand good. The .Senate again
withdrew. At 11:45 the two Houses
-again met, and the tellers announced
that as both Houses had . agreed, the
vote of Nevada would bo counted for
Hayes and Wheeler. Then followed
in succession, without objection, the
State of New Hampshire New Jersey,
New York, N. Carolina and Oho. The
- President of the Senate then opened and
handed to the tellers the vote of Ore-
gan, when objection being " made, the
.Senate retired. Alt objections having
been presented to the electoral commis-
eioii in the case of Oregon, that matter
is now undergoing investigation. ; '

:" THE EAST DITCH.
"' Democrats, we thik, will not make
at strong fight over Oregon, which was
reached in the count ou Tuesday. Of
Courso South Carolina will go to the
commission, .although there ; isn't a
thread fbr . the Democracy to hang a
hope upon. They have been compelled
to acknowledge, after a most thorough
investigation, that Hayes received an
overwhelming majority of the iopular
vote, and the revolutionists . only urge
4he matter to consnme time.' Wiscon
slu, the last Stao on the .list,, when
called, will cause a sharp fight, probab
ly, as the old charge of ineligibility will
be raised. Ot course there is reallv
-nothing in the charge, and it is just
probable that enough sensible Demo
crats in the House may be found to unite
with the Republicans,' and , thai body
will agree to cast the vote" where it
rightfully and legally belongs, for Hayes
and Wheeler, and then the fight will be
over. . As we have said . from the
first, Hayes will be inaugnrated Presi
dent, W'heeler will take hn seat as
Vice President, and the Country will
con be moving along as though there
had been no election troubles.
Among other statesmen 'who " have,
.gained a national reputation by their
, great "ability and continued and unwea
ried labors to serve the people honestly
and Well, WG iiotice the iiamer 6f our
honored Senator, John II. Mitchell,
mentioned as a probable member of
1 President Hayes' Cabinet. Virile we
are convinced that Senator -Mitchell
...would fill any., portfolio, offered him by
thePresident with honor and distinction,,
yet we strenuously object s to his accept
ing a position Jo the Cabinet., The peo
pie of Oregon can not dou without him,
ia the U. S. Senate. : lie has beon as

untiring in his labors in-her behalf, and

erybody as a little singular that Kelly
should ask that a certain telegram be

VEMOCRA TIC -'REFORM."
Holland, who undertook to "reform'
Cincinnati tor I iuen, says that he liaci
an : from t'Jiicaga named Hums,
with a gang of twelve men ; a man
named Fairchild, from Pittaburg, with
eight men ; .Mike Gleason, from ew
York, with eighteen men, and that these
fortyone men cast about fioe hundred
cotes ! lie ( II ollawl) received $1,000
from the Democratic committee, and
was promised ni"ie from individual pol"
iticians who agreed to give the money !
The dispatch signed "governor,"
sent live days before Cronin was erant-
cd a certificate as an elector, stated that
he (Grover) would "decide every point
in favor of the Democratic elector, and
grant certificate accordingly Wlien
Grover was before the Orej'pn commit
tee as a witness, he swore that ho had
given no information to any person what
ever as to what his action would be in
issuing electoral certificates prior to the
day on which the matter was willed !
THE VOTE WILL HE ('(tCXTED.
From a Washington special to the
Tribune we learn that the Kepublicaii
Senators hold a caucus tho first of the
week, at which it was determined that
if the Democrats shonld determine to
filibuster in the House to prevent the
completion ot tho count of the electoral
vote, it would be the duty of the Presi
dent of the Senate, some time before the
4th of March, in joint convention if pos
sible, and if not, tlicn in the Senate, to
complete the count and declare Hayes
For the part whicli Senator Ivelly
took in the Oregon electoral : bribery,
tlie Democrats talk of expellii g him
from that body. Poor Kelly! Had
the infamo.is rascality attempted by
Ivelly, Grover, Cronin and Chad wick
proved a success, you wouldn't have
heard a whisper from Democrats about
expelling Kelly! Toor Kelly! Poor
dog Tray !
A TO TA L fa IL UllE.
"Usufruct" and his pals have, after
having plnyed the most desjerale and
infamously wicked game ever attempted
in politics, lost every trick. Morally
and politically "Usufruct" is a total
wreck. His infamy has buried him so
deep that it will take the last trump to
resurrect him. !

grave questions to be considered on both

of them give encouragement to any des
Grover's chances to procure a seat in
the U. S. Senate, since the publication
