WHITE CLOUD. KAKSAS:
Tharsd&y, : t NovemDer 5, 1863.
There was a more exeitod coatest id
this Township, on Tncsdajr,, and eoase
quently a fn!ler'voto, than at any election
since we have been in Kansas. The Cght
was upon Representative, and bag result
ed in the re-election of J. P. Johnson, by
majority over both his competitors.
Therewere 259 rotes cast in the Town:
ship, the candidate for Chief Justice re
ceiving all. The following is the rote on
Johnson. Parker. "Slircve.

A. tremendous effort was aado
"feat Mr. Johnson. Those who were for
beating him, no matter with whom, snp
ported Parker. Another party, who pre
ferred another man to Johnson, hat who
at the same time looked to qualifications,
voted for Dr. ShreTe. For sereralroas
ens, we felt it oar duty to vote ' for the
latter. We repeat what we said boforo,
that Mr. Johnson made a, good member
' of the Legislature ; and aince the man of
onr preference was not elected, we aro
glad tbatJbTirison has succeeded. Per
sonally, Mr. Parker is regarded by every
one as a good, Honest man ; bnt be is
utterly nnSt for the position, and wonld
be a butt and laughing-stock for the
whole Legislature. Every man who sup
ported him, whom we heard express
himself npon the subject, declared that
he did not believeParker fit for the posi
tion that they preferred Sbreve alto-
cether but that Parker stood a better
ehance of election, and they wero bound
to beat Jebnson. Those who professed
tt be friends of Mr. Parker, should have
had more respect for the old man, than
to bring him out for snoh an office, and
endeavor to place him in a position in
which be wonld have done himself no
credit. Had these men concentrated np
on ShreTe, he would have been elected
beyond a doubt, notwithstanding the al
leged illegal votes; for many voters who
were really opposed to Johnson, voted
for him, from the fact that they thonght
Parker wonld be elected a circamstance
which they conld not bear to oontemplate.
So we told the leading Parker men ; bnt
they were perfectly wild, and could not
The fabulous vote at Highland aston
ishes everybody, and there are broad
charges of wholesale frand. We sanst
confess, it looks " snaky." After dor
ens and scoree of men hare gone into the
service, and many others have been driv
en off, Highland polls double the vote
she ever did, in the most prosperona
days of Kansas, and at the most hotly
contested elections. It is eaid that voters
from Wolf River Township,- and other
places," voted at Highland, and it will in
all probability lead to a contested eleo
'tion. We know nothing as to the trnlh
of the charges; bnt notwithstanding every
hill, gully and ravine was raked over, aid
probably not a dozen votes in theTown
, ship kept from the polls, we donbt wheth
er Highland could roll up 102 legal
votes. The matter will be investigated,
and an effort made to vitiate the returns
olthe entire precinct.' "With two oppo
sing candidates, Mr. Johnson wonld have
been elected by the legal vote3. In this
. matter of fraud, his friends, ia their ami
etv for bis election, have overdone the
' thing" and will in all probability defeat
the very object they sought to accomplish
The. affair should be throughly investiga
ted ; and if frand is proven, the judges
of election, the illegal voters, and all en
gaged in the transaction, should suffer
the fullest penalty of the law.
If Highland is -thrown ont by- the
County Board of Commissioners, it will
, entitle Parker to a certificate of election,
and will place Johnson fn the attitude of
eontestant before the Legislature," instead
