THE traitorous and contemptible
act of Representative Purcell of
Cheyenne county , which resulted
in the defeat of the most important
measure before the present legisla
ture , the irrigation bill entitles
him to the maledictions of every
loyal Nebrask.au. Fathering a bill
up to its final passage , he deliber
ately stands up in the house and
amends an excellent and compre
hensive measure until no sensible ,
honorable man could support itand ,
it was overwhelmingly defeated , as
it should have been. The con
temptible spitework of Purcell and
; he two shyster lawyers of Ogal-
illa , who are responsible for this
cowardly work , will be ever re-
nembered by the people of West
ern Nebraska , who had a right to
expect a vastly different result.
