A EEMAEKABLE AITIDAYIT-
A Tale of Boadling and Treachery
, Without a Parallel in the His
tory of Nebraska.
Mighty Interestm' Headin'.
The following remarkable affidavit
is republished t this time because it
throws light on the character of two
men who are now prominent candidates
for ; the plaited States senate. The
story of lpdling and treachery un
folded ip this affidavit has no parallel
in the llLuOry of corrupt politics in the
west. Neither has the chief boodler
the transactions described any equal
Nebraska as an unprincipled and
terly characterless villain. .

Mr. Kimball replied, that Mr. Paddock
had been very friendly to the road, but
.might not be available as a candidate,
and that Mr. Nance was a successful
young man and the road might take'
him as its candidate;
That it was then understood and
agreed between the said Kimball and
this defendant that either Mr. Paddock
or Mr. Nance . would be the
choice of the Union Pacific rail
road management for United
States Senator and that defendant
agreed to support either Paddock or

That at the time defendant gave the
note mentioned in plaintiff's petition,
the note for three hundred dollars
above mentioned was due, and that
plaintiff had good reason to believe
and did believe, that said Kimball
never intended to press the payment
of the said notes and mortgage.
And said defendant charges the fact
to be that said plaintiff, Fred Nye, is
not the real party in interest in the
prosecution of this action, and that
said Thomas L. Kimball is the real
party in interest.
Said defendant further says that the

The Great Contest.
The great senatorial contest of 1893
has begun. But how or when it will
end nobody is wise enough to predict.
Neither party has yet solected a cau
candidate, and there does not appear
to be much disposition to caucus until
later on in the fight.
Tuesday's vote was largely complimen
tary, and can hardly he taken as a sure
indcation of the real preference of the
It seems quite evident from the vote
that Powers would have a majority in
the independent caucus if one were
held now, and that Paddock would be
the caucus nominee of his party.
The general impression is that the
contest will be loni; drawn eut; nobody
seems to be cin a hurry. There must
be one ballot taken every day,
but there is not ikeiy to be more than
that this week. The regular work of
