We considered the action of the
Electbral Commission as final. The
fact thaVlIayes occupies his se.at by
fraud, is as plain as day, but the intense-excitement
causes;- the. depression of J business
which must necessarily follow from
the action of a committee whose de

likely to ciiMKyarc the reasons why
Mr. Hayes should be. 'countenanced
for two. years longer, and jthe'n h'J

the' lasi;feWj weeks McLin, who was
.chairman of the' Florida returning

President but many of the -visit in y

and others in high authority, whose

as "to carry the Stato tpr rllayes.
