The Republicans iu the Senate of U. S.
Congress avajl themselves of ever real
arnVteebnieat objection to the adnjissiu
of the Louisiana Senators, to the seats in
that body which the people of the Stat
have eleeted them. A long and obstinate
contest is kept 1 both S'li1 P.r?
and Eustis: lellog was elected by hc
Packard Legislature iu January lst? and
was duly accredited by the Pacfjrd gov
eninieut as the Senator elect. But the
Packard government was a fraud, and
feij to pieces the moment the troops were
withdrawn from the State. Niche!sf it
thus apieared, was the true Governor,
elect ; ami the Legislature which after
wards formed under his authority, the
true government of the State. This body
elected Spoffqrd, and all the; necessary
forms of law were fully complied with tq
certify the fact. Now thcquestion in dis
pute in the'U. S. Senate is, which of the4
two is entitled to the seat, Kellog or
Spoflbrd. It is contended by the Repub;
cans that Kejlog's; credetiais comply ex
actly wjth al the forms of laws, "evun o
the broad seal of tire State, and that
gruiia facie, he is the true Senator j and
that the subsequent election of Spofford
does not invalidate his claim.
EusXis' seat is contested on slightly
different grounds by Pinchback, the lat
ter haying been elected by what is known
as the Kellog Legislature of 1872r73.
Eustis was elected by what is known in
Louisiana as t!e Wheeler or compromise
Legislature at a subsequent date. The
credentials of Pinchback were presented
and referred to the proper Congressional
Committee-and led to a discussion that
lasted nearly four years. The credentials
of -Mr. Eustis were presented in Jan. 1876,
and on the 14th referred to the Commit
tee on Privileges and Elections. On the
28th of the same montb that Committee
reported adversely to the right of Eustis,
alledging there was no vacancy, Pinch-j
back having been elected before him tb
the same term ; and recommended that
the papers relating to Eustis be laid upon
the table. But afterwards the Senate de
cided that Pinchback hatlot been elect
ed, atid so his case was settled. That de
cision created a vacancy and Mr. Eustis
copies forward and claims that he is en
titled and qualified to fill iC The Senate
had recognized Mr. Eustis as a duly elect
ed Senator and set him aside only on the
ground that the place he claimed, was al
ready filled by another man. Now, not
withstandiug Pinchback is out of the way,
and the long continued vacancy iu the
Senatorial representation, of Louisiana,
the Republicans are fighting against the
admission of Mr. Eustis, for no other rea
son, as it would seem, than the dread of en
dangering theft partiz:m control of the
Senate. . .
, The case of Kellog and Spofford is now
by resolution of the Senate, in the hands
of the Committee on Privileges and Elec
tions. Both are appearing before the
Committee, Kellog by counsel, and Spof
ford supporting his own claim.
The Republicans' evidently intend to
fight itout to the bitter-end. With a vast
popular majority against them, and ap
parently blind to the signs of the times, and
especially to their recent overthrow in the
great State of Ohio, they show no signs of
wavering in Congress, and concede noth
ing on witnessing the benign effects of the
President's jus policy towards the South.
In short, they lpive. so long clutched the
South by the throat and compelled her to
obey orders, that they have come to think
it is right, and .are utterly nn. willing
to relinquish their hold.

whom there were, twenty-eight cases, ap
peared in Court, and, through, their coun

against them. The vigorous opening of
the prosecution the evening before had
completely demoralized them, and they
hoped by an unconditional submission to
secure consideration from tho Court, on
whose niercy they had thrown themselves.
After requiring competent bail for their
appearance, the Cpurt suspended sentence
until the next term.

somewhat surprised at this action but
quietly told him to let the horse loose
which he did not do. Mr L. got out of the
buggy ajud went towards him aud demand.

stranger struck at him with a knife which
he had kept concealed in his baud all the
time. Mr. L warded off the lick with oue
hand and knocked him down with the
other, and after giving the would-be-murderer
a severe pumnieling he drove off,
leaving him lying in the road. Iu his
effort to save himself from the deadly
stroke of the knife, Mr. L. received a slight
wound in the neck and a painful gash on

his intention was to assassinate Mr. Lanier
for his money and buggy and horse. He

VICE PRESIDENT WHEELER'S
Washington Republican, I6tli..
Vice President Wheeler has bad a long
conference with the President regarding
the political situation. In speaking on
this subject yesterday the Vice Presideut
remarked that, notwithstanding the action
of the Republicans iu Ohio, he still felt
that the course of the President in regard
tq the Southern States was most judicious;
that he did not regard the president's
course as a policy, but as a principle of
vital importance to the future peace and
prpsperj'ty of the wholu country ; tlmt he
felt more assured of the wisdom of the
President's course than ever. During the
past summer hp had opportunities to as
certain the views of the Republicans not
only of New York, but in ail parts of the
country, and that the feeling was such
that, had not this been pursued, it would
have cost the Republican party thousands

How a Set oMen'Torged Deeds to Texas
Lands f and Made 2foiiey. 1 ' ;
Kaxsas Citt, Mo- October 19. A
gigantic Swindle was brought' to Jlgbt
yesterday. J. K, Hall, E;dyard L.Stevens
and Geo. W. Miller were arrested on a
requisition from Governor Hubbard, of
Texas, chargpd with forging laud titles
and issuing fraudulent deeds fir large
tracts of land in Texas. The scheme of
fraud was organized by .nail aud another
person narapij Thos. Tullis, of Anstin?
Texas. Hall lives here, and through his
persuasion Stevens and Miller were
brought into, the plot. Stephens, wbo
a lawyer and son of Judge Stevens of this
city, is believed to have gone into, the
operations innocently lit first, by purchas
ing 14,000 ae'res of Texas lanijs froqi Hall,
but subsequently becoming fascinated by
the opportunities offered for making mon
ey rapidly, entered freely into the swind
ling conspiracy, and was known in Texas
as a Kansas City lawyer.
In order to letter secure the success of
these plans, Hall and his confederates
caused to be made duplicate copies of nota
ries aud. other seals, and procured speci
mens of the signatures of numerous of
ficials of Texas. They also caused to be
printed blank iorihs, and exact' copies of
deeds necessary for their transactions.
All titles and patents used by them, and
represeuting either the general govern
ment or the State lands, were forged. An
immense niuountjf laud has been con
veyed by them under many different
aliases to many different persons. About
a year ago ihe attention of Gov. Hubbard
was cailed to the fact, aud en looking into
it, he was sljowu that a monstrous swin
dle had been perpetrated, involving the
interests of both the State of Texas aud
the United States. The authorities at
Washington were notified of the facts dis
covered, aud Special Agent Foster was
sent, out here where lie obtained clues to
the authors of the swindle, which have
been closely followed ever since, resultiii'r
iu the arrest of sixty persons employed in
various parts of the country who belong
to the gang. No less than 13court houses
have been set on fire and burned during
the past year to destroy evidence that
could have been brought against the con
spirators. Hall, Stevens and Miller left
for Texas, yesterday, in the custody of
officers from that State.

in his time. He has traced the course of

identical with the Lualaba, which was
seen at one point by Livingstone. This

retain this color during their whole growth

such wouderfnl beauty to the mountain

begin at length to turu green, adopting as
its own the fresh tint which is ju t de
