Report ef !e Sreclal Committee.
Washington, Jan. 19. The report of the
loiot committee to prepare a mensu.e best
calculated to accomplish a lawful counting
of the electoral vote and best disposition of
an questions con doc ted therewith, starts out
witn a statement that tbe subject has beeo
most carefully considered, and they believe
tue bill accoinpuoviog besl culculuted to al
lect ids Uesimi result. J here are various
theories of the constitution widely diverse,
and though this bill cootroverta some of
them, it dues not. ia the opinion of the com
mittee, violate any part of tbe constitution.
Tbe constitution requires that the electoral
votes shall be counted upon a particular 00'
caaioo, All will agree that these are the
votes or the blates, and when found and
ideutifkd, there is only clerical work to be
done in countinir them. This bill is there-
'fore directed merely to ascertaining for tbe
purpose and aid of counting what are. the
constitutional votes ot respective titles,
and whatever jurisdiction exists for such pur
poses, tne bill only regulates the method of
exercising it 1 be constitution, our great
instrument and security of liberty and order,
speuks id '.he amplest language Tor all such
cases in whatever aspect they may be pre
sented. It declares Congress shall have pow
er to make all laws wbicb shall be necessary
and proper for carrying Into execution tbe
lorogoing powers, and all other powers vest
ed by the constitution in the government of
the United states, or any department or of
fices thereof. The committee therefore think
tbe law proposed cannot be justly assailed as
unconstitutional, by anyone, aud lor this
reason we think it unnecessary, whatever
may be our individuul views, to discuss any
of tbe theories referred to. Our fidelity to
the constitution is observed jvben we Bud
that the law we recommend is consistent
with that instrument. The matter then be
ing a proper subject (or legislation, tbs fit
ness of tbe means proposed becomes tbe next
supject of consideration. In all just govern
ment?, both public and private rights must
be defined and determined by law. This is
essential to every idea of such government,
and is the characteristic distinction between
free and despotic governments. However
important it may be whether one citizen or
another shall bo cbief magistrate for the pe
riod nrnsc.ribod umin iust theories of civil in
stitutions, it is of tar greater moment that
tbe will of the people lawfully expressed in
the choice of that officer shall be ascertained
and carried into effect in a lawful way. It
is true, in every operation of a government
of laws from the most trivial to the more
important, there will always be a possibility
that the result reached will not be true. An
executive officer muy not wisely perforin his
duty, courts may not truly declare the law,
and the legisluiive body may not enact the
best laws; bat In either case to resist the
act of tbe executive, the courts, or the leg
islature, acting constitutionally and lawfully
in their sphere, would be 16 put anarchy in
tbe place of government. We think then to
provide a clear and lawful means of perform
ing the great and. necessary function of gov
ernment in a time. of much poblio dispute, is
of lar greater importance than the particular
advantage that any man or .party may, in
course of events, possibly obtain, Hut we
have still endeavored to provide such law

the branches ol the logishture and the judic

proportions. Ttjecomposition of tbe judicial
part oT the commission looks to the selection
from ditt-rcut points of tbe republic, while it
is thought to be free from, any preponder
ance ol s.qpposable bias, and the addition of
tbe necessary constituent part of the whole
commission in order to obtain an uneven
number is, left to an agency the farthest re
moved from prejudice of any existing attain
able one. , It woold be difficult if not impos
sible to establish a tribunal that could be less
subject to party criticisms than such a one.
The principle of its constitution is so abso
lutely fuir that we , are unable to perceive
that tbe must extreme partisan can asuil it.
unless be prefers to embark bis wishes upon
tbe stormy tea of unprecedented procedure,
hot disputes, and dangerous results that can
neither be measured nor defined, rather than

Washington special describing the reading
of the committee's plan says t When the
report bad been read though, the secretary
said it was signed by members of the com
mittee. "Read the names," insisted at least
a score of reporters in one breath. Tbf'y
were read, when it was found .Mortons
name was not there. Of the lourtoen mem.
bersof the joint committee, every one had

eyes were turned towards him, but be offered
no minority report, aud said nothing A
buzi of relief from the suppressed excitement
that bad prevailed,, ran Jhrough tbe gal
leries. Sarr cnt, who came in. after tbe bill
had been read, Insisted on a second reading.
I his over, Bogy proceeded to administer t
sedative in the form of a tedious spoech.
Morton staled to one of the flouse mem
bers of the committee this morning, that al
though be did not sign the repot t, be should
probably say nothing iri the Senate to op
pose the passing of tbe bill. lie took

TUB OREGON CASK.
Proof that she Republicans Refused
to. Act. with Cronlu-Plsiola and
Washington, Jan. 9. -Senator Morton is
getting more than he bargained for out of
the Oregon case. Mr. Klippel, one ot thi
Democrutio candidates for elector, and
J. N. T. Miller.one of the electors appointed
by Cronin. were examined. Their testi
mony, went to show a distinct refusal on tbe
part of Cartwright, and Odell to cooperate
with Cronin. becaus they began operations
by declaring a vacancy in the case ot Watts
aod wept, ahead immediately to soccpt bis
resignation as postmaster and replace him in
tbe college. Thit of Itself places their I Blu
est beyond all quoBtloo. Morton then ap-
proacneu tne witnesses wuu iuiunm w
now much they were paid, and was Informed
that aside from receiving a single dollar they
were actually out of pocket lor their travel.
Iini menses to Saleui. and t::at Chairman
Bellinger for this reason would not allow
then) to contribute to tne sooscripnoD men
bninc raised to retain counsel for the Demo
crats In tbe event of the contest reaching
the courts. Both witnesses testified that
they, had pistols In their pockets on the day ,
the tiectoral College met, ,
IThen a Republican lawyer by tut name ot
Dolnh.waa called, lie. testified to having ,
carried arms on' his person on tbe day the
college was formed, and it seems that many
of both parties utii tne tamo, at popuiac
excitemunt ran si high that some conflict
was expected. Jilr. Dolpb admitted, when
under cross fire from Senator Keroun, that
be had told Secretary of State Chadwiok
tbat Uor. Grover should not be allowed to
biuva the State alive. Lie distinctly admit
ted tbe legality of Cronio's certificate by
chart acrizing Gov. 0 rover's action as a
crime sgainat tho people (cf the State, for
which thoy bad no legal ,rediest. ; Morton,
.ard Mitchell both gruw .nervous under his
reported threats and damaging admission. , .
: Mr. CarVwright, one of th Republican
electors, loetified that he asked Cronin to
produce the certificates of tbe electors three
or four timet, and Oouin refused each timet
He (Carwright) bad a pistol In bis pocket
on tho day . the Electoral College met ( it ;
was a seven-ebootcr, but he does not know
wbet'ier it was loaded or not. . - -, -.
As to the $8,000 sensation Morton Is
getting fretful and exasperated over its fail
ure. On Eriilay, -Charles Diinood ot. New
York will show the business nature of tbe
transaction from his books, And dispose of
ill connection between it and the 83,000 ,
paid to Cronin. Representative Lane )sayt
it it customary with Oregon Democrats to
make up a purse for their messengers and
public servants who perforin duties lo which
no profit is stlached. It was done for the
messenger wbo. brought Seymour's vote iij
18S8, and it wis only fair to recompense
Cronin, wbohad lost heavily by his protract
ed absence. , Alter Dimond and Kunyou
have satisfactorily explained tbe eight thou-,
sand dollar, transaction witnesses will.be
called to show how Cronin's puny was raised
in Oregon, and thus dispose of the lost sus-,
piclon of any irregnlsrity in political matters
