Ed. Jours al:
There have been cliarges niade of late
iu the Sioux County Republican anil
Herald against a certain man or lawyer
for selling- out his client for i00, and as
no names are mentioned, 1, as well u.s
others, take it to mean tliat I am tlie
jierson tliat was sold out and Sir. Geo,
Walker the man tliat did the selling-; in
the last year's commissioner contest. i
now wish to state the case through
your paper as it appears in my mind, to
those who are not already familiar with
it without fear or favor. I was tha
unanimous choice as candidate for
county commissioner, without solicita
tion, ol both the republican and demo
cratic convention, and the people of tin;
first district which district I was to lep
reseut almost unanimously voted for
rue, for which kind consideration 1 here
and now express my obligations, and had
1 received the oltice to wiiich 1 was hon
estly elected, 1 assure them their confi
dence would not have len misplaced:
but there w ere certain men who cared
more lor "boodle" than the welfare of
Hioux county, wlio feared tliat their
"game would be played" if a man should
get on the board who would look to the
people's interest. Taking that into con
sideration, and not having been endors
ed by the Wyoming- cattle association,
whose pliant tools they liave ever been,
they made up their minds to defeat me,
fair or foul, if an opportunity presented
itself, tlie same us they liad done before.
Tliat opportunity came through the elec
tion boam in Montrose precinct tailing,
through mistake, to protierlv sign the
poll books as they should have been
ued. 1 was in Harrison the day the
votes were canvassed, and when it was
found tliat such was the case, the clerk
asked the county attorney, Mr, Satterlee,
wliat tliey should do with them, ami .lie
said they could not be counted. Judge
Kuikaid writes me that they could have
been legiilly counted. The next morn
ing I requested Mr. Griswold, one of the
canvassing board, to not close the. re
turns and that I would to to Montr-s
ind get the election boa'.il, for a case in
the eleventh volume, Nebraska Rejiorts
age I have not at hand,) savs if an elec
tion boanl fails to 1 ill out the books
properly, it can do so any time, or words
to that effect. Mr. Geo. Walker after
ward requested the County Clerk to
wait, but that gentleman refused. Mr.
Walker went to Chadron for aih ce, and
next dav when I came to town with the
election board I found the returns closed,
the County Clerk, Judge and attorney
had left for Chadron, and all there Was
left for me to do was to lake the election
board home again. By the urgent re
quest of the people in tlie valley, I com
menced the contest in due time and form
and tiled papers in the judges office as re
quired by law, with Geo, Walker as mv
attorney: but the dav the trial was to
ome off, it was found that the sheriff
lmd served notice on mv opponent on
Suuday and also brought copy of com-
laint home with lum that should have
leen left at defendant's place.. Mr. Wes-
tover, attorney for my opponent, filed a
motion to quash the suit on insufficiency
of service, but Mr. Hunter overruled
that motion and decided the case open
for trial: but on nonappearance of Don.
weir, or his attorney s, tin judire de
nied the case lost bv default. I after
ward inquired of Mr. Hunter outside his
office w hether he liad issued judgment
of ouster against Don M. Weir, ami he
told nie he liad reconsidered his decision
and had ordered new service on Don M,
Weir. At the second trial Mr. Wralker
had engaged two attorneys from Chad
ron to assist him; Mr Walker being ruled
out on the claim of not being an admit
ed attorney. It was held that Hunter's
Court was a court of record, and we be
lieve it(?) ,Mr, Westover made a motion
to dismiss the case as there had been no
motion tiled at the f.rst trial to continue
the case, and Hunter sustained that mo
tion, when in my mind he continued the
ease himself, as be told me that he :.ad
ordered new service on boii V, r KIT. I
