Tfee;Mjra$Ki Contested Election
-The debate in the Hpuse of Representatives-
ori .thisl case occupies ' fire or six
pages in" the Congressional Globe: ' Mr'.
Morton displays n good deal of ingenuity
irf defending his claim to his seat. Prob
Ably "tin oiher man" ia; Nebraska would
hare. made the' fame effort.. . The argu
ments used' by Morton and his Democrat-,
ic friends in Congress, are based upon
technipalities! Morton well. knew that
Dailyl claimed his.'seat on the ground that
a stupenduous fraud was committed; in
what. was styled the northern precinct of
Lead-qui-court county.v That this fraud
Was committed, Daily proved by fonr wit
nesses three of them "parties to the

Mr. DAILY. I have only this to say.
I do hot like to make any charges, and I
never would have made a charge in this

it: like a gentleman, if they hnd treated
me so. But having no merits in their case,
theylwere forced, in order tomake aiight

this, 'may it please the gentleman, from

his present .Democratic friends now re

been known chieuy as a desperado and

at Kansas 'City, ' where he broke into
Northrop and Go's Bank and robbed it of

During all these months he -has led a

of his prowess and,. good fortune.. How
many men he had killed, how; many hor
ses he had stolen, .how many houses he
had plundered, no one " can tell.

through the State who sincerely believed
that he was an' honorable man; that he
was actuated by pure motives; that his

began to hunt him down.'; ';
