The Republicans Flan to Steal Six Seata
in the Legislature and Elect a
United States Senator-
THE 8UPSEatE 00URT BEQUESTED
To Issue a Mandamus Elder and John
son All Right Other Seats
Outline of the Scheme.
After the smoke of the battle cleared
away, and the republicans found that
they were only three members 6hort of
a majority in each house, they boldly
conspired together to bteal six seats to
which independents were fairly and
honestly elected. The organization and
control of bjth houses and the election
of a United States Benator were the
motivas that impelled them to under
take such a desperate scheme.
Just a week after tho election iho
first evidence of this conspiracy ap
peared in the State Journal and Omaha
Bee. The conspirators laid a plan to
prevent S. M. Elder member-elect of
the house from Clay, and L. L. John
son senator-elect from Clay and Hamil
ton from getting their certificates. Toe
duty of issuing these certificates lay
with the county clerk of Clay, and he
was on the side of the Bchemars.
Fearing that the clerk would issue
the certificates to the "epublican claim
ants, Elder and Johnson sought a
mandamus from district judge Hastings
to compel him to issue certificates to
them. The republican claimants im
mediately rushed to Lincoln and asked
a mandamus from the supreme court to
compel the clerk to issue to certificates
to them. They based their claim on
fact that the names of Elder and John
son had appeared twice on the tickets
in Clay county. Each had been nomi
nated by the independents and indorsed
by the democrats. The name of each
was placed on the ballot twice, once as
an independent and once as a demo
cratic nominee. Although there was
nothing fraudulent in either the voting
or the counting, and each independent
candidate had a clear majority of over
200, the republican candidates demand
ed that the certificates be issued to
them. But they were doomed to fail
ure. The supreme court set Tuesday
November 22, as the date for hearing
the case. Meanwhile Judge Hastings
heard the case und issued a mandamus
compelling the issue of certificates to
E d?r and Johnson and armed with
these they are sure of their seats.
The schemers next turned their at
tention to Uobson of It illmore wno was
elected by a small majority. They set
up tho claim that lead pencil marked
ballots cast for the republican had
been thrown out. The charge appears
to be entirelye trumped up for the occa
sion. The Fchemers next turned toward
Hsmilton county where Fred Newberry
was elected by a plurality of one A
contest is threatened but upon what
grounds does not appear. The only
real grounds for the contest in this
case is the same as in all the others
that the republicans want hi s seat,
and want it bad. Tbe democratic
county clerk qf Hamilton, doubtless
will (if he has not already done so) arm
Mr. Newberry with the proper certifl
cate of election.
The most absurd attempt of all is to
beat Representative Kruse of Knox
county out of his election. The fight
was a close three-cornered one and
Kruse won by forty-two v tes. But
Boyd county just west of Knox has
been organized since the last appor
tionment was made, and it is not
specifically included in any district
But the Boyd countyitoa were deter
mined to be represented, so they voted
for the Knox county nominees, and
most or them voed tne republican
ticket. The republican nominee for
representative In Knox got about 300
majority in lioyd county ana nence
claims he is elected.
According to latest reports Kruse
has his certificate.
Tn order to get the control of tho
senate, it is rumored that the con
spirators will try to deprive Harris of
Nemaha and Johnson, and Dirner of
the large district comprising Dawson,
Lincoln, Cheyenne, etc., of their seats.
The only charge that can possibly be
substantiated in either case is that
these senators-elect have small ma
jorities. If the conspirators can . get
the assistance of tbe supreme court, no
such trifling thing as small majorities
will be allowed to stand in the way of
electing a republican United States

NOVEMBER 24, 1892.
Achieved in Western States Populist
Returns From the South and East
(Joeing by Slow Freight.
WE WILL MOW ' BY OHBISTMAS,
Perhaps, the Total Vote Counted for the
People's Candidates A Lady
Attorney General in Montana.
The election returns of the people's
party have begun, coming in by slow
freight Along jabout Christmas wo
will be able to state with some cer
tainty about tho number of indepen
dent "votes "counted in the differ
ent states, but perhaps no one will
ever know how many were cast,
especially in the southern sta'es.
The Assojiated press managers
boldly announced before the election
that they would pay no attention to '
the vote cast for the people's candi
dates. In a few of the western states
where the party is very strong they
could not avoid it, but for the vote cast
in other states we muf-t await the
official count, and then get the results
through the weekly reform press.
Tbe following is a brief summary of
results so far received:
IN IDAHO ,
The Weaver ticket is elected by
about 2,500. .
The Weaver ticket carried every
county. Newiands, independent, is
elected to congress, and benator btew
art will be returned as an independ
The populists elected their whole
state ticket by handsome pluralities,
both congressmen, and probably a ma
jority in the legislature. The Weaver
electoral ticket has about 14,000 votes
over the Harrison ticket.
IN NORTH DAKOTA,
Which was first reported to have gone
republican, the populists have matte al
most a clean sweep eleetlng governor
and all other state officers except sec
retary of state. The republ cans Rot
that offl er and one congressman. The
electoral vote is for Weaver.
The Weaver ticket rev;ved about
23,000 votes. Marion Cann u ii elected
to congress, He will be remembered
as the tall gray-headed m ii who raised
such a storm of enthi .-la'-in at the
Omaha convention by t.'eclaring that
tbe day would come when we the peo
ple will own the U. P. railroad.
According to the most reliable re
ports, the Weaver tisket is elected,
and the populists wH hold a balance
of power in the legislature, and may
thus be able to dictate the election of
a U. S. senator.
The returns show that the people's
candidate for governor polled about
22,000 votes, and several populists have
been elected to the legislature.
The populists elected their whole
state ticket, the Weaver electors, and
a clear majori'y in the legislature
which insures the election of a populist
U. &. senator, and the passage of a
The populists cut down the demo
cratic majority of 180,000 to a plurality
of not over 25,000, and elected many
members of the legislature.
IN SOUTH CAROLINA.
It is reported that four populist con
gressmen are elected. They are really
alliance men chosen on the democratic
ticket and it remains to be seen
whether or not they will act with the
populists or democrats in congress.
The people's party did something no
party ever accomp'ished before: They
elected a woman to the office of attor
ney general. Miss Ella Knowles is the
lady's name. They also elected a
number of members of the legislature.
IN OTHER STATES.
What fragmentary news can be
gathered from other states indicates
that the new party has polled a large
vote. It is a very significant fact that
in nearlv all the reports from all Darts
of the country it Is stated that this or
that candidate was elected by a plural
ity, instead of a majority. ' This indi
cates that the people's party has gained
BtreDgtb enough to hold tne balance of
power between the two old parties.
The Democrats will have a ma Wit
of 92 over all opposition in the next
house, giving the . Republicans the
benefits of all contests. Thnrn will iw.
only nine Populist, and at least seven
oi tnese win work with the Demo
The fata of the ConiUtntlonal CouTeo
tloo Vet In Doubt.
Toi-kka, Kan.. Nov. 22. Every
county in the sta has now sent in its
election returns the secretary of
state. The voie r congressman-at-largc,
with four counties whoso re
turns had not been tabulated yet to
be ineludinl, has been footed up, giv
ing Harris, Populist, 5,077 majority
over Anthony, Kepublican. The
counties not included will make Har
ris' majority over 6,000. Lewelling's
majority will be about 4,500.
The majority for or against the
constitutional convention will be less
than 300. Saturday evening 103 coun
ties had given 1,050 majority for the
convention, but the returns from the
four counties received this morning
give about an equal majority against
it. There were 100,000 voter who
neglected to vote on tbe proposition.
Tho lawyers disagree in their inter
pretation it the law of the convention.
Attorney General Ives holds that the
law which reads: "If a majority of
all the electors voting at such an elec
tion shall vote for a convention, the
legislature shall, at the next session,
provide for calling the same," means
the vote on the constitutional proposi
tion and not tho total vote cast. Chief
Justico llorton and other lawyers in
terpret the law to mean a majority of
all the electors voting. Tbe question
will undoubtedly be taken into court
for settlement ,
