Douglas County Election Fraud
Lincoln. Neb., Feb. 7,
Eimtoh IIkii.vi.h: List week was sub
mission week, thi- om is contested elec
tion we k. The peculiar people lrawn
from dilferent quarters of the state to
Lincoln by the limitation of Submission
have departed to relate how v.nv h lh-y
dil at critical periods to brace this
member or that senator. Local history
will teem with the exploits of those dele
gations, eyen Cass county will prove no
exception to the rule. In the .senate but
little remains to indicate the tension of
a few days ago, unless it be the vigorous
antagonism of Ktn-om to many of the
measures agitated by Church Howe.
There is an advantage to Howe in such
opposition, it compels him to get his
bills, or see that his friends get their bills
up in proper shape. Hansom may not
be right in all matters, but he has a very
good head for law and the st.ite consti
tution. Today the house has been agitated over
Douglas county and her candidates for
seats in the house of representatives. The
majority report of the committee on
privileges and elections was finally
adopted just before adjournment, which
would seem to indicate that Monissey
and Fenno must give way to Specht and
O'iirien. On the final vote on the com
mitter's report seycral republicans voted
with the democrats on the ground that
so much fraud and corruption was evi
dent in the elections in Douglas county
last fall that they could not come to any
satisfactory conclusion as to who was
elected. Monissey made a savage assault
on the committee claiming they broke
open the ballot boxes, ami did not at
tempt to g- t the keys to unlock them,
which keys were in the hands of the
democratic county clerk for Douglas
county. In reply Cady said he hid writ
ten several limes to the Douglas county
clerk, signing as the chairman of the
committee on privileges and elections,
requesting him to scud or bring the keys;
that finally the county clerk was sub
poenaed, but whin before the committee
was so drunk nothing intelligible could
be gott.n from him either in the shape
of keys or language, and that the Doun
las county delegation were compell.d to
put t'tie man to bed. adding that all par
ties is id refrained from making the matte r
public out of respect to Douglas count ,
her oakials, an. 1 those representing 1,, r

There are a number of vacant lots

men in the state, th.it are a disgrace to
the city. They cannot be puichascd :.t

them vacant because theyciif rtnin some

should be a law prohibiting such peo
ple owning a foot of land in tlte city,
when they will not sell at any price nor
make any improvements which would be
to'their own interests and the interests of
the city. They are aliens in the same
degree that t':e lords of foreign lands
are who stiil live in their country and

will cut th'-m off.

The clerk, not knowing the man or his

to the house he Mas informed
that the couple had secured a room in
his house. lie went immediately to
the room and rapped on the door,
hut without response. When he threat

it. Mr. Riddle entered and found the
man partially undressed, and the "'cat"
