The following resolution was pasted by
Oak Point Grange, No. 0, P. of H., at a meet
ing held In Ealsey. Saturday, Feb. 20tb, 1875:
Resolved, That we, as Patrons and farmers
of Oak Point Grange, refuse to purchase any
machinery, wagons or other wares, or mer
chandise through any agoncy or sub-agency
where State Agents for said machinery, wa
cons, etc., retuse te sell such to our regular
ly appointed purchasing agents at tbe same
rate given to merchants throughout the
Lktteus AnouT Oregon. The San Fran
cis'.o Chronicle Is publishing some very
pleasant and readable letters about Oregon
that do justice to our State and do credit also
to the writer, wbo we think we can recognize
as an eld acquaintance, made in travelling
from tbe States nearly ten years ago. who
called on us and renewed acquaintance when
hero on business last fall. Mr. M. M. Hark
ess Is an occasional writer for our paper
and we recosrnlze tbe same agreeable style In
Celebrated Well. Here in Salem we
waked and ate and walked and slept as if
there was no 22J of February to tell us of the
birth-day of Washington. In Portland tbey
made a grand affair of the day, as indeed
ihey ought. There was a military parade,
an oration by Col. Arthur Cnsfield, and
George Washington was made much of.
Xr.w York, Feb. 23. The Brooklyn court
contained tbe customary crowd of spectators
this morning, and all parties to tbe Beecher
can were in tbelr accustomed places, Evarts
continued the cros-examlnatlon of Mrs
Moulton, que8iionlng her first in reference to
ber visits to Mrs. Woodhull and tbe latter's
falls at witneR' house, witness Dimply re
peating what she paid in regard to this mat
ter on direct examination. Witness was then
questioned as tn ber conversation with Tllton
when abe called him a villain. Sbn said the
convocation was in August, when Mr.Moul
ton was about to make bis statement to tbe
committee, when Tllton wa talking angrily
to Frank about not making his statement be
fore the committee. She was questioned
about telling tbe story of the scandal to Mrs.
Dennis of Narragansntr, and telling her
15wcher was innocent, which she denied.
Evarts hern concluded the cross-examination,
and Fullerton began the redirect. She
testified that ber visits to Woodhull were
solely caused by Woodbull's threats to pub
lish tbe scandal. That the last time she came
to ber bouse was to ask Frank to assist her to
raise some money.
When witness kissed Beecher she was sor
ry at tbe anguish be exhibited. Both were
-crying, and she felt as If in tbe presence of
death. She thought Bhe would never t-oe
blm again; that he was going to commit sui
cide. She told her husband wheu be came
home of the Interview, and what she did.
Witness advised bfr husband to make bis
short statement. Did so In order that Beech
er might explain tbo matter to tbe Church.
She said "give tbe old man another chance."
WAsniNOTON, Feb. 23. Foster, Phelps,
Potter and Marshall presented the malnritv
report of tbe Committee on the state of af
fairs in Louisiana and concluded as follows:
"In our Judgment all that I needed in Lou
isiana Is to withdraw tbe federal troops and
leave tbe people of that State to govern
themselves." Before making this reecom
meudation the Committee says: "To avoid
tbe mischief and confusion of change, tbe
majority of the citizens of Louisiana seem
w illlng to Hccept a n compromise Kellosg's
recognition and the restoration to tbe Con
servatives of the control of tbo Lower
Houe." For these reasons Fos'er and
Phelps do not wish to oppose the recenm
mnndation that the adtninitratlon of Gov.
Kelloirg be recognized in view of the fact
that they know nntliingoi merits as judged
Vv competent evldsnoe; nor do tbey wish to
lie understood as urging it. Tbey ouly wish
to record their agreement with those of their
associates who believe such a compromise
might, by making a termination of the un
certainty in Louisiana, be on the whole less
intolerable than tbe present situation of that
li'tre-sed people; but to any resolution rec
ouuizlng Kellnpg, Potter and Marshall are
utterly oppo-d. Thev find nothing to
lustily tbe boiler that Kellogg was elected;
that he seized the Government bv aid of
Federal troops through a void and fraudu
lent order which prevented the counting
and returning of the votes, should hea stand
ing presumption against him. When the
people, outraged by the abuses of his Gov
ernment, had successfully regained tbe ofnee
be had usurped, he was again reseated by
Federal power through tbe forma of the laws
by which be had entrenched himself. He
once more sought to nullify the choice of the
I eople at the late election, and to that end
called In Federal troops to break up tbe
meeting of tbe Legislature. For Congress to
recognize a usurpation so gross, so oppres
hlve.'ia, they think, to establish a precedent
by which, under pretexts that can readily be
found, anv State Government may be over
thrown, tbe will of tbe people nullified,
fraud and violence perpetuated, and Repub
lican forms perverted to destroy liberty.
Following are the conclusions agreed, on
by Hoar, Frye and Wbeeler, tbe minority of
They condemn the white man's party and
assert that it Intends to take violent possess
ion of tbe government and will not stop at
murder to acompllsb it.
Tbe Committe believe Kellogg received a
majority in 1872, and while tbey believe there
was violence and fraud which frustrated tbe
will or tbe people In many parishes in 1874,
tbe illegal order of Durell or tbe illegal
ant or the returning board In attempting
to cure one wrong by another, naturally in
flneroM the popular dls'.-outenl and lent
jltusiblltty to complaint.
Tbe committee believe there hWbeen much
diubouesty and corruption In the State and
local government flr which tbe Republicans,
principally under Warmouth'srnle.are large
ly responsible, thougb in numerousinstances
their opponents have been equally to blame.
The e fleet of all tills has been to destroy tbe
authority of law over a large ro-tlon of the
Stite, deprive the negroof the right of suf
frage, overthrow republican government in
Louisiana and to seriously menace it in the
A new election at tlil time la not desirable
neither party ask for It, and It would ag
gravate present evils.
Congress should use Its constitutional pow
ers in the matter. The committee think Kel
logg the choice of a majority of the voters of
Louisiana, and should be recognized as Gov
ernor. The committee conclude by saying these
jeinorlles are at best temporary; and to estab
lish efficient mem of publiceducatton would
do much to remedy the evils. People there
should bo made to understand that all tbe
authority of the government to preserve a
republican form of government and protect
the rights of citizens, will be firmly exer
cised. Unless this can be done, tbe free In
stitutions ot the whole United State will not
survive tbe destruction of tbose In the South.
The Finance Commit'ee agreed that a now
mint ought to be established In the West.
Edmunds from the Judiciary Committee,
submitted a report on the question whether
the contract or 1872 with the Pacific Mall
Company for subsidy is still obligatory. Tbe
committee report it is not obligatory, mainly
because tbe company did not furoish the
ships required for additional service at the
proper time, and that the Postmnster-Uon-eral
has no legal authority to accept vessels
wheu they were tendered him, and his action
cannot bind tbe government.
Hoar from tbe select committee on Louisi
ana affairs, submitted resolutions. First,from
tbe whole committee, recommending Houso
of Representatives of Louisiana to reseat the
members rejected under tbe application of
tbe rule of the returning board; and second,
which ii not unanlmous,that Kellogg be rec
ognized as governor of the State. He also
presented a report which was ordered print
ed in the Record.
Loughridge offered an additional sactlon
roimposlng Income tax and providing ma
chinery for its collection. Adopted 141 to 87.
It provides that 3 er cent b collected on In
comes botween $3,000 and 810,000, and 5 per
cent, on incomes above $10,000.
Dawes then moved to strike out the enact
ing clause, which was agrsed to. He then
moved that the committee rise, and the bill
be recommitted to the Committe on Ways
and Means, with Instructions to roport back
with a tax on whisky at 00 cents, w ltd tbe
sugar and tobacco clauses as amended in
Committee of the Whole, and the leu per
cent, horizontal section retained. Dawes sub
sequently withdrew the motion toiecotntnlt,
and Cox moved that the House concur iu the
action ot the Committee of the Whole, strik
ing out the euaetlng clause. The House re
fused by yeas 100, nays 150, to concur In the
action of the Committee of tbo Whole strik
ing out the enacting clause.and the bill stands
recommitted to the Committee of tbe Whole.
