more, praying that the election of members of this House
held in the Third Legislative District of that city, on No-
vember 2d, 1875, be declared noil and void, respectfully re-
port : '
For their views on the general questions of law and fact
equally applicable to all of the districts, your Committee re-
fer to their report in the contest of the seats of members repre-
senting the first district.
The only feature marking this district and distinguishing
it from the others is, that in the first precinct of the 18th
ward, the almost complete absence of negro votes, and the
existence of a conflict between the white men and the negroes
early in the day. would justify the rejection of the vote of that
precinct. But this would have no effect on the result in that
ward, nor on the result in the district where there was a
Democratic majority of more than 0,000. As in the other
districts the Reform vote was less than that polled at the
Municipal election. But if to the difference of 1,800 we add
as fraudulent Democratic votes, all of the small tickets and
unfolded ballots claimed to amount to about 1,700, there re-
mains still a majority for the sitting members of 2,500.
Having thus shown that a concession of all possible claims,
if sustained by proof, would not justify the House in declar-
ing the election in this district null and void. We recom-
mend the adoption of the following resolution:
Resolved, That Dr. E. J. Chaisty, Marcus Hess, B. L.
Harig, Edward L. Albaugh, Henry Sanders and John J.
Fenton, be and they hereby are declared to have been duly
elected delegates from the Third Legislative District of Bal-
timore city, to the House of Delegates, at the election held
in this State on November 2d, 1875.
And your Committee ask to be discharged from the further
consideration of this subject.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
W. H. NEAL, Chairman,
Which was read.
The question then recurring upon the adoption of the re-
Mr. Mattingly demanded the yeas and nays.
The demand being sustained,
