questions submitted by that body touch
ing tlie legajityiof tJe organ ixatioo, of the
Fusion Legislature, The decision gener
ally sustains ihe Republican position.
They say "an election lias been had by
the electors of Inia State. Tho rights of
the Boreral persons voted for depends
npod the rotes cast in' accordance irith
tho' constitution and laws of the State. It
was the duty of ; the Governor and coun
cil thus to declare Iti - Any declaration of
a rote not thus Ascertained and declared
is unauthorized and void. The Govern
or and council examined the returns and
undertook tod4bar the result as it ap
peared by tho returns. Various questions
involving the true construction of the
constitution audlstatates relative thereto
arose, the Goveriior, by virtue of and by
his constitutional prerogative, cillcd
Upon the Court for its decision upon the
questions propounded. ' By 'the provis
ions of the constitution the Court was re
quired to expound and construe the pro
visions of the constitution and statutes in
volved. It gavfji full answers to these
questions. 1 he bpiuion of the court was
thus obtained in one of the modes provi
ded in the constitution for an authori
tative determination of important ques
tions of law. The law thus determined
is a conclusive guide of the governor and
council in tho pttformance of their min
istei ial duties. Any action on their part
in determining the vote as-it appears by
the returns is in Violation of the provis
ions of the constitution and laws. Thus
declared it is a usurpation of authority
and must be held! void. It onlv remains
to) apply those priucinles to the subiects
embraced in the questions propounded."
Gn this basis the court answers favor
ably to the Republicans the . various
questions.' ". v
Boston, January 17.-A special from
Augusta says the w hole aspect of "affairs
has changed, and hopes of ii peaceable
solution of the dispute bv the decision of
the Supreme Court are blown to tho
winds by the action "taken by the Fusion
ists last night. Soon after the points of
the decision werd received from Bangor
the leading Fusioiiists had a consultation
with Governor Smith and staff, 'and tho
and the following order was issued:
Stae of Maine, Adft Gen'l Office, f
-Augusm January 10, leoo.

Joshua L. ChambjBrlain to the command
of the volunteeiiimilitia. ia 1iriv r
General order No. 1, dated Jan. 5, 1830
assigning Geiu Joshua L. Chamberlain as
commander of the 1st division of the
Maine militia, and requirhig the com
manding officers of all uiilitar' organi
zations of the State ! to report to him, is
hereby revoked, -i .'
Special order No 45,dated Jan. 5, 1880,
directing Gen. Chamberlaiu to protect
the public property and institutions of
the State is hcrebiir" revoked.
The commanding officers of all mili
tary organization accepted into service of
tho State arc required to report to the
oigueu. i JOSEPH Li. SMITH.
This order was taken to Chamberlain
by Gens. Folsom abd Black, of the gov
ernor's' staff. The general received it
and replied that he would answer ?this
morning. k 1 .. aT:
Orders have been sent to the command
ing officers of every liiilitarv company in
the State, sigued by Smith, announcing
Chamberlain as relieved from command.
nd directing them to obey no orders ex
cept from Smith.
Augusta, Me., Jan. 17. Gen. Cham
berlain will pay no attention to tho order
of Gov, Smith taking away the conimand
of the militia from turn. He will hold to
lisjirst announced position, and will re
main i in the nlaco kssiirnpd liim until n
governor is legally elected and Qualified.
I he Democrats arc quite stiff this niorn-

on our part. If any act of violence is
committed it must ; come from the other
side; wo are hero to preserve peace, not
to broak it. Wo ;have protected both
Legislatures in a peaceful occupation of
the legislative halls, and 1 propose to tn
terfee in no manner so long as they do
not resort to Tiolencc.,, i I ,
Both Ileuses iuci at 9 o'clock,' ac
cording to adjournment. After ' reading
the journals they took a recess until 10
o'clock It is doubtful if a quorum ; is
present in the Iiouse At least two -members
have gone houie and several others
have not put in an appearance iu the hall
and recess was probably taken for the
purpose of rallying absentees. It is un
derstood I that the fusionista have tele
graphed for the opinion of Gen. Bntler,
Hon. Bion Bradbury and: several other
eminent lawyers to! joffset the opinion of
the Supreme Court J and they' expect re
plies in season to lay them before the
members of their Legislature upon reas
sembling next Tuesday. Tho" fusionista
are quiet and will not talk much. There
is a report that the latter will endeavor to
compromise, but it; is of doubtful au
thority. Some of the fasionists have
certainly weakened, j At least two mem
bers of the House have said that they
would not resist the decision of the
Supreme Court, and the remarks of the
Senator from Aroostook county yester
day indicate that he is of tho same dis
position. Tho hotels are crowded with
men, mostly Republicans, who have
comehcre from Bangor, Waterville, Bath,
and other largo cities, ready to take a
hand in case of necessity.
At the end of recess in the House Mr.
Cushman, of Sherman, mado a 6pcech
recommending application to Congress
for aid in repelling attempts under the
decision of the Supreme Court to drive
this body from the State House.
,Geo. F. Hill, of Corinth, said that "we
stand to-day iu very critical condition
The clergy, money-power, and courts
were against us. He believed some
measures should be adopted for the sab
mission of further questions to the court,
giving a fair statement of the case, 'and
hoped some member would suggest means
whereby this wouldi be effected. Ho
noticed that several members who yester
day expressed their willingness to shed
their last drop of bltod defending our
rights were absent to-day, applause
aud laughter, but he believed there were
sensible men enough left to treat this
question with tho attention its gravity
Mr. Iugalls, of Wiscasset, offered a
joint order for tho appointment of a com
mittee of five, to be joined by such as
the Senate may see fit, to take into con
sideration the condition of affairs and re
port to tho House the best method of
procedure.. Tho Supremo Court had de
cided on a set of questions, submitted by
another and irregular body, that this
body was not legally constituted. He
thought a set of questions giving a fair
statement of the case might be submitted.
"We want peace; we want our rights.
Let us consult together as men knowing
our own rights and determined to main
Knowles, of Naples, said he believed tho
decision of the court was a partisan one,
but ho did not want to resist it by force.
There were other and peaceable means
of meeting this crisis.
Beuuer, of Waldoboro, said his posi
tion was tho same as Hill's, and he hearti
ly endorsed his remarks.
lirauuury, of JSorwayf said we were
hero legally and lawfully, but were in a
pcriloas time, and should act with cau
tion. It was the part of wise and hram
men to submit to tho inevitable. If the
court has been used aa an instrument to
deprive ua of our rights the crime is not
ours. If revolution has come by the ac
tion of that court, against that court we
have no apnea! except to tho oconle.
Let us go back to thera. Th ballot box
is still left to us and to that we must ap
peal. He heartily approved of the pro
posed order, and hoped it would pass.
Robesou, of Thomaston, also favored tho
passage of this order.
A Saco special says : "Ex-Secretary of
State Gove arrived from Augusta on the
midnight train. He states that JoRenh
L. Smith declares : I have been chosen
governor aud by .I'll bo governor.'
This, most of tho Fusionists applauded.
They laugh at tho decision of the
Supreme Court, saying they will support
Smith in what he may do. On the other
hand Republicans are no less resolute to
adhere at any cost to what they say is
tho sido of right and law. There is no
mistaking the fact that deep and bitter
feelings are being engendered, and no one
knows what an hour may bring forth.
Reported declarations of Fusionists in
authority, that their government will be
removed to this city iu case of fighting,
where the public officers will be protect
ed then, also causes much interest
Cushman, of Sherman, still ad?ocated
a resort to Congress.
Perry, of Camden, favored the order in
a speech of some length. His speech was
greeted with applause, mingled with
hisses from the rear of tho hall.
Bradbury, of Norway, protested against
hissing as a breach of decorum, and
hoped, for the good name' of I the State,
that that sound would never! bo heard
there agaiu. .. i
Ingalls moved an ameudment to the
order. He offered a clause limitiug the
members of , the House, and leaving the
Senate to take independent action.
5 The order as amended was passed, and
tho Speaker appointed Ingalls, of Wis
caaset, Robinson, ofThTOaiaston, Wilson,
ot Orona, JJiVhitman, of Harrison, and
Hill, of Exeter, as members of j the com
initteeil .-. - :.. . i .

Gen.JChaniberlaiu, in his reply to Smith,
concludes: "While the matters uow iu

you are Governor or not, it must be
manifest to you that I should fa'.l in my
duty were I to surrender my trust except

Major Folsom, who signed the order
last evening relieving Gen; Chamberlain
from command, was' among the first at
Gen, Chamberlain's headquarters this
morning to apply for a pass for a friend
to the State House.
To-day the answers of j the Supreme
Conrt to the questions of the Republican
Legislature were read. The Secretary of

the Montgomery Guards, in reply to
Gen. Chamberlain's circular to company
commanders, telegraphs here that he
would obey his orders uutil the decision
of the court was given. Every company
except that at Old Town says the-same.
An Augusta special says the Republi
can House was called to order at 20
p. m. by Speaker Wfeeks. Prayer was
offered by Gov, Cobb, of j Angnsta. The
ropresentativeg' hall was packed with
men, every inch of space surrounding
tlie seats being occupied by standing men,
while the galleries were
a solid mass of
up of passes at
human beings. Taking
the outer doors was abandoned at this
time, the police being removed to the
foot of the staircases and! to the doors of
the . two houses. Just as prayer ended

4 The New York Times says that the cau

ment and reserved comments on the Re
publican bribery of Fusioaist members of
the Maine legislature untilitho blanks in
the affidavits were filled, may now pro
ceed to speak their uiindj Tho state
ments of Swann and Harriuiau are cer
tainly circumstantial aud have an air of
fraukuess. Moreover, they 1 arc fortified
in an unusual , degree by; ; conferences
they held with well-knowu citizens prion
to taking the bribes and by j the produc
tion of the corruption, money befoio . the
Legislature. These thiugs cannot bo ig
nored or brushed aside with simple deni
als.1 It is hot often that a case of bribery
is supported by stronger teRfJiuony, and
it is highly discreditable to U Republi
