THE ARKANSAS REBELLION.
Brooks Accepts and Baxter Be
jects. Washington, May 9.
- Both Arkansas factions have mu
tually agreed to compromise the
difficulty, and request the attorney
general "to act as umpire, as he did
in the case of Alabama. Attorney
General Williams having consented,
the friends of both governors as
sembled at the department of justice
at two o'clock p. m., and continued
in consultation until 6:30, when,
without affecting a compromise,
they adjourned to await a reply to
telegrams sent to Gov. Baxter by
During the conference the attor
ney general sent a note to the presi
dent, informing him that represen
tatives of botlt parties were at his
office trying to effect a compromise
and with prospects of success. The
president replied, expressing his
earnest desire that a compromise
should be effected, and leaving it to
the discretion of the attorney gen
eral to approve it in behalf of the
government. About ten o'clock
p. m. the parlies to the conference
re-assembled at the residence of
Attorney General Williams.
The following basis of compro
mise has been agreed upon by Bax
ter and Brooks. If accepted by the
President it will be decided who
shall be the temporary Governor.
If rejected, the President will de
cide the case himself. It is agreed
that May 9th, 1874, at Washington,
D. C, between the respective agents
and attorneys of Joseph Brooks and
Elijah Baxter, claimants for the of
fice of Governor of Arkansas, that
on account of the conflicting claims
of the parties and the division of
sentiments among the people of
said State, that the legislature of the
State shall be called by said Brooks
and Baxter, to meet in extra session
on the fourth Monday of May, 1874,
at 12 o'clock, noon, at the usual
time of meeting-at the State House;
each to put a separate call forth
with for that purpose, and the leg
islature so called shall be permitted
to meet without molestation or hin
drance by either of said parties or
their adherents, that they shall re
ceive and entertain the communi
cation of Mr. Brooks setting forth
special grounds for his claim to the
office of Governor, as well as his
reason for contesting Baxter's right
thereto; that they shall investigate
the facts and allegations so sci forth
by Books, and such investigation
shall bo conducted in the munqer
prescribed by the Constitution and
laws of the StatCj giving both par
ties a full and fair hearing upon
such competent testimony as either
party may deem propor to oirer;
that the legislature shall determine
in the manner provided by law,
which of the contestants received
at the November election, of 1872, a
majority of the legal votes, and de
clare tfte resut, urn t)io parties
ahull abide by that a'dtlorr. Brooks
and Baxter bl eah relieve from
duty, and send home all their
trooi, retaining only as many as
each may think necessary aS a body
guard, at LItte Rocknot exceeding
one Company. All warlike demon
strations are" to forthwith cease, and
both parties are to keep absolute
peace, and refiain from any inter
ference with each other, or their
adherents, until the contest is finally
decided by the legislature, or the
National Government has taken
action t)iereon j that until the de
terminatToij ' by ' the"" General
Asembiy, as' to' who was
legally elected Governor, the
contest to bo made before
that body by Joseph Brooks, the
question as to which of the contest
ants has the legal right to exercise
the functions of the office of Gov
ernor, wilj. at his discrctj'on he de
termined by tho President on the
application heretofore made to him
by the respective contestants; that
Jhe Legislature shall receive from
each claimant to office "such com
munication as either may send to
it until tle contest for office is
finally deeided by the General
Assembly. I submit a foreign plan

in Arkansas to the respective
claimants to the office of Governor.

adoption by both parties.

The following replies to the plan
of compromise proposed last night
by Attorney General Williams to
rival governors of Arkansas have
been received here to-iijght, and
will to-morrow morning be sub

Governor Baxter declines to accept

as relates to a joint call of the. legis
lature, -was submitted by me some

1 cannot consent to any thing that
will in whole or in part recognize
Brooks fts Governor, Either I am
Governor or I am not Governor.
The Legislature has been called
together for tho 11th of this month.
The members are rapidly assem
bling, with nearly a quorum pres
ent now, who believe that they will
receive the protection of the Gen
eral Government In their meeting
and deliberations, I could not law
fully disperse them, if I would, nor
have I any means of compelling
the Legislature, that might be con
vened under a joint call, to conform
to the terms proposed. The Legis
lature might as well act under my
call, because it might not return
two weeks nence, and meantime
we are In confusion, with no recog
nized Governor and the State in a
war. To dispose of all this, I have
ealied tho Legislature for the 11th
Inst., under conviction that It would
be protected by the General Gov
ernment. I now renew my appeal
to the President to protect the
Legislature now called. If the Leg
islature meets now, the question
may be submitted to it fairly, and I
will abide by its decision fully. I
am, therefore, constrained to de

Tho situation of the transporta
tion question in Congress,is sub
stantially as follows: Appropria
tions will be recommended for mak
ing through surveys of the great
water lines embraced in the report
of the senate committee omtrans
portation. These surveys are de
sired for the purpose of ascertaining
the exact cost of the projected
works, with a viow of urging their
construction at tho uextrsession of
Congress. One great' obstacle to
ovorcome is to decide i pon how tho
routes shall bo built, whether by
Government or by private capital.
The latter will probably be adopted,
with such restrictions as may be
deemed necessary to subserve the
rights of the public. .Another ques
tion is, how shall the Government
aid be extended to these routes ?
It is believed that the plan of -endorsing
the bonds of the private
companies who undertake to build
the proposed routes Wnl be accepted
as the least objectionable; that these
routes should bo left in private
hands, and it is generally conceded
said a congressman who has made
a study of this question, that the
Government should build one of
these canals the result would be
that nrivato co-onorations would
make a common cae against if, and
the Governtnerittvbiilu-be placed in
the pbsjum'Qf fostering a monopoly
to destroy private enterprise. The
friends of the various canal routes
express themselves as sanguine of
success at tht next session of Con

Tho Natlonar-Republican this
morning, editorially says, there has
been a running fire for a long time
all along the line of the Pacific rail
ipad, discharged from blinded ad
versaries, against the railroad Inter
est. The great bugbear has been
that the Central and Union Pacific
railroads have refused to pay inter
est on tho bonds issued by the
United States for the benefit of the
roads, and that they should be com
pelled to pay the same on the plea
that millions of dollars may be
wrongfully withheld from the gov
ernment on this account, and much
animosity lias' been aroused, It
now turns out, however, that there
Is not the least authority In tfie law
for exacting the collection of this
interest, until tho maturity of the
bonds. Meanwhile, however, in
blind haste, the people have forgot
ten a most important fact which has
been fully developed by Mr. Hough
ton in flie house committee on Pa
cific railroads. The railroad com
panies are required by law to pay
five per cent, of the net proceeds of
their business to the government
annually,' to be amilpd to tjie liquid
dation 'of the" deut'of the" United
States. These companies have
earned a net profit, thus far, of
about twenty million dollars, ac
cording to their reports, and it is
clear that a larger sum is tlup to the
government, which has never been

port a bill providing for the proper

Assembly, now in session at Little
Rock, adjourn for a reasonable
length of time "-ay ten days to
give you an opportunitj- to call in
those members who may not re
spond to his call, so that
there may be a full
legislature. 1 he United States will
give all necessary protection to the
legislature in meeting and transact
ing business as usual at the State
Houe, and prevent all violence mid
disturbance of tliu public peace. I
request that the military of both
parties be at once disbanded, which
is the first step towards a peaceable
U. S. Grant.
A'.'asiiington, May 11.
To Hon. E. Baxter, Little Rock:
I recommend that tlm liejubfrs
of the General' Assembly now at
Little Rock adjourn fort, feasniahle
time, say fur Jen day, to enable
Brooks to call into the body his
supporters aud adherents, ho" that
there may bo a full Legi-slature.
Any hasty action by a part of the
Assembly will not be satisfactory to
Brooks' friends here acjree that
after this course is pursued no oppo
sittlon will be made to theacmbly
meeting in the State Houscns usual
and that lie will at onue dismiss his
force if you will do the same. I
urgently rcque-t that all armed
forces of botli sides bo disbanded so
that tho general assembly may act
free from any evil presence or
influence. Tho United States will
give all necessary protection, to the
legislature, and to piotcct, as far as
possible and practicable, all violence
and disturbance of the public peace.
