SENATOHIAL SCHNIH AND INCIDENTS.
LINCOLN , January 21. The present

that they will be held responsible for
tholr acconnto nnd do not seem dis
posed to yield to outside pressure or
dictation. These who have never
been subjected to the ordeal can
hardly -comprehend what it means for
a man to stand fearlessly by his
honest conviction , from early dawn
until long after nJdnlght. Almost

there is no law for buying a man's

of the fjct that neither thi

solidated could not elect without the
oupport of republicans. There cor'
talnly does not appear to bo the remotest
motest show of electing a democrat
bnt it is inevitable with the proaaurc
that la being brought that a republics

that when the train stopped the air
