to have tho election contest decided by
tho samo thirty-one who constituted tho

supporters think tho proposal absurd.
They say that In cither caso it Is putting
dependence on tho samo Individuals who
so often have given reason to question
their voracity. They call attention to
tho untruthfulness of somo of tho eigh
