AnotherDay Consumed in the Con^test Case by the Republicans^in Dilatory Motions.

Fulllienor! of the second Hay's I'mwd-^injfH i'roltMliillt) of some l'rotcre^s
Hi'ttk,Oct. 29.^|8p^-cial.]^ The second^day of the ureal mandamus proceeding's hiiH^passed, mid the mists and haze of trivial^technicalities with which the republican at^^torneys nought to eniharras the cause, have^lit last been disjH lied. Hedroek, so to speak,^has l^een reached and to-iuprrow morning,^unless republican ingenuity can devise un^^heard of means for causing delay, the trial^of the cause will be Isgun on its merits.^This should have been done forty-eight^hours ago. and the court's time and the^the people's money have been wasted !^y two^days of needless delay.
judgel^e\Volf,*s decisions to-day have^!^een marked by that firmness and^iuipartality so characteristic of the^man; so absolutely non-part isan that^a man who would impugn his^his motives would be overwhelmed with^a tide of |^^|^ular disapproval in this city^that would come alike from republican and^democratic sources. When he decided this^luornini! that he could uot sit upon a case^in which he was asked to issue a i^ereiiiptory^mandamus to have the vote donated as to^himself, the republicans were loud in their^approval. It was another case of I he-lew^in the Merchant of Venice, who cried, ^A^Daniel, a Daniel come to jndgint lit;^ but^wbeu in consonance with his yesterday's^ruling, the point I^^^ inn made, Judge De^Wolfe ruled that the writ might be amend^^ed so as to leave out that part which in^^volved himself, republican jaws fell at this^anuouneeiuelit. and praises of Judge De-^Wolfe were suddenly dried up at the fount.
Mr.Campbell continued to tile his excep^^tion ;,t each and every adverse ruling of the^judge, so that an ap|^-al, in case of an ad^^verse decision, ia now a foregone conclu^^sion. It is evident that a legal contest of^illi|H^rtauce will yet he had on the question^as to whether an ap|n-al in this ease will act^as a stay of pris-ecdinga or not. The wis^^dom of setting the case a week hi fore the^opening of court ;sl^coouiiug more apparent^every hour. There is even In '. owing^todilatorytactics.a probability ihat the^case will run over into next we, li ml inter^^fere with the regular business . : ihe term.
Courtmet at 10 o'clock, and after^disusing of the readme; of tin unites Mr^Caiuplicll took the (ioor and la an to ad^duce reasons in sup|^ort of tint motion^which had been filed the preceding ^veiling^to quash the writ. He asked leave to amend^his motion by the insertion of a fi w words,^which was readily granted l^y the court, Ui^^ohjectioii being interiMiaed thereto. In sup-^|sirt of the first BMai of his mot ion.^which was to the etlect that the court had^no jiii isdiction of stud defendant hoard, be^^cause Ihe wait w. s made return^able at an earlier date than^the return thereof was authorized hv^law, he stated Ihat this proci edmg ill lb red^in no respect from the ordinary action of^law. and th.it because that in ordinary^actions ten days wa re given ill which to^answer, it neeessarily followed that a limi^tat ion of that lime wis illegal. He staled^that the writ was issued oil the TJud of Oc-^tober and made returnable on theSUb.^which provided for only a lapse of six days.
Atthis stage the court called .Mr. Camp^bell's attention to the provisions of the stat^^ute governernmg the issuance of writs^of mandate, and mi clear and unmistakable^were the provisions of the Htututes relating^to the issuance of the writs, and so much in^accord were the st' ps taken with its provi^^sions, that further argument on the first^ground of the motion to quash was aban^^doned.
Hethen lisik up the second ground.which^is ^that there two other writs other than^the one herein now in force commanding^the same act to lie done and performed hy^the same defendant returnable at another^d iy. to-wit: Nov. 7. lsS'.t. and forthwith be^^fore the same court and sainejudge,^ ^ Vour^honor on yesterday.^ proeci tied Mr. Camp^^bell, ^held that the title of the party in^those proceedings should lie the territory of^Montana. The BCMM at whose instance^these proceedings are instituted is simply^an informer, and puts himself simply in^the position of one who gives information^in a criminal proceeding, and such Is-iug^the caw. there were three proceedings in^^stituted to accomplish the same purpose,^and for that reason the court could not ac^^quire jurisdiction of any of them.
Campbellthen Contended that Mr. Mo-^Hatton had no right to the issuance of a^mandate requiting a ministerial body to^discharge a public function ^ ^r ^l'it v. because^the performance of that duty would rebound^to his advantage personally, and that he^was relegated to some other remedy, al^^though what that remedy was he did Uot^state. ^We have.^ exclaimed Mr. Camp^^bell, ^been commanded to count the votes^of precinct No. :'A for all of the officers^voted for at the election held on the first^day of (k'toher h st at that precinct, or show^cause on the 7th day of November why we^will not. We may do that tiefore that time,^and should lie afforded that opportunity^which is denied us by the issuance of these^other writs.
Here,again, the court dealt some sledge-^b'lmmer blown to the castle which Mr.^Campbell was so adroitly construct inn by
askinghim if tin re w is any mode by winch^this alleged grievance of which Mr. Mc-^Hatton complained could l^e remedied, to^which Mr. Canipl^ell replied, without pomp^or circuuiMance. that there was not; that^owing to the transitive state which this^territorv now ICllala^II in. the constitnt ^ n^of the statutes is such as lo leave the de-^fendeiit remediless.
1.1-ainiuthis ground of his motion in that^state, he proceeded to consider the^third ground thereof, which was^to the dad that the presiding^judge was disqualified to act in this^case on account of the interest which he^had and has in t he result ol the litigation.^Mr. Campbell stated that he had a number^of authorities, which he would read, pertin^^ent to this question, which would show that^under the circumstances his honor^was disqualified by reason of interest,^and also liecanac of the fact that at^the time of the issuance of the writ no of^^ficial returns had been made by any legally^constituted authority, or coining from an^official or authoritative source which would^^Matefc^ apparent that at that time hr was^not elected. This, too, taken in conjunc^^tion with the fact that the inundate ot the^writ directed the respondents to count the^voles cast at precinct 1H for all the candi^^dates balloted for. which would necessarily^include himself, and from the interest^which n defeated candidate would have in^keeping the majority by which he was de^^feated as low as possible, tins was an inter^^est w hich disqualified.
Illreply to this Judge De Wolfe s)sike as^follows: ^III regard to the proposition of^interest it is useless to cite authorities on^that punt: it is so elementary that no judge^can act in an adjudication of any matter in^which he has any interest, however slight,^that tu state a priqiositioii of that kind in a^court of law is Hiitlicicnt without reference^to authority; and if I have any possible^interest whatever of am nature or form ill^this proceeding, that liisqunlilics me from^sitting in this case, llf course, there are^certain conclusions which I. as an individ^^ual, might know, one of which is. that I am^defeated by I huge ma jority, r. gurdhss of^the fact as to uhi ther the vote of the pre^^cinct that is here involvi d is thrown out or^not; that is a mutter that is known tome^as an individual: but what I can lake^notice of judicially nny be a differ, lit Ml^ter entirely. And then is allot her proposi^^tion coiimcbd Willi that matter winch 1^thought of yesterday, and in fact before.^While I might have no practical, no real^Interi st in the result of this suit,^yet it might Is'mini, lor the puraose of ai-^guuii lit. that I inighl uaTC an interest ill^bavin.' the majority ..gainst uie reduced as^low as |Hissible. and that pafBCttU piide in^Having that majority us small as |s^ssilile^i would so ufli i t me as to disqualify uie from^! acting. I do not say whether there is or^; not, hut in rev aril lo Hie main proposition,^that a judge cannot sit in judgment nana^any matter in which he has any interest^, whatever, whither direct Of remote. I COO^I OCa* with counsel fct res|Kindeiits fully in^the matter: hence it is unnecessary tu pro^^duce authorities out hit prop ^sit ion win t her^j I can take judicial notice, sitting here as a^i presiding judge of this court, of matters^' that arc well known to me as a private null^' viduul. or whether I can use private knowl-^I edge possessed by me as an individual in^governing my actions while sitting heie as^| a court, is a matter about winch^' I have .mine doubt. The quea-^1 tion then is whether I can^take judicial notice of the fact Unit I am^defeated regardless whether this precinct is^counted or not: and I will state to counsel^that they in ed not be deterred from any^: sense of delicacy because 1 am sitting here.
audiask that they avail themselves fully^'of the pro|s,sit ion. iiide|ieiidi'lit of that. 1^; will stale that my general views coincide^| with the proposition that has been stated.^; that I cannot sit here as a court ami make^I all order that will affect myself in any man^^ner or form, and to that eiti lit I am dm^qualified. Hence 1 will listen to argument^in relation to si-ction n^V.l u^f High on ettra^ordinary remedies as to whether a writ^' coulilhc maintained in part and r. fummI hi^part; whether the alternative writ must be^followed by the peremptory wi lt, or whether^the alternative writ in iy he nullitiisl by the^peremptory wait in tins case. I do not think^that lean sit here as a judge of I his court^and order a count of the votes that were^c ist for me.
Kecesswas then taken until 1 o'clock and^niHiii the rcaSMcinhliu.' of court Judge^McCoiinell took the floor and inquired if^the court was ready to hear argument*^from their side oil til^ quest lull ol disquali^^fication. JlUlaa Di Wolfe reiterated the^views expressed in the decisi n nlstTe given^and staled that while he WM h illy satis-^tied Hint he had no interest ia the result of^the |^ tiding contest which would act as u^disqualification, yet his doing so aialtc, it I^peremptory writ issued, it would result in^the counting of votes cast for himself, would^bean indelicacy and that th# judicial st-^^IM might not nstaiatod with the slightest^suspicion he would feel reluctant to net at^tkisjuncture. Judge]McCoiinell then Mall
anapplication to aaamd the wrH so tnal
ihe inundate to count the Votes woiiid be^limited to the relator, ami with an over^^whelming an.iv of authority fortified the^application.
Thisbrought Judge Kiiowli ^ to his feet^to oppose I lie application on the most ' ^ cli^^nical and trivial grounds. After the eon-^sumption of about an hour's tune the mat^^ter was submit ted to the cotut and leave^was given to amend.
Arecess was taken for fifteen minutes to^permit the aim la.m nt to be made and in^Us ann ulled (una it was again objected to^by Judge Knowles, who moved to dismiss^the writ Is'cause it did not agree with tin-^order of the court, 'litis, however, was^found not to have been the cast', so the mo^^tion was overruled. This ini|iediment re^^moved, Mr. Campbell again resumed his^argument on Ins motion, which had BCM^interrupted by the incidental proceedings^above referred to, but finding that the only^matter left for him lo debate ti|sin was tlie^disqualification of the judge by reason of^interest, and that Ising removed by the^amendment to the writ which was allowed,^he submitted the matter to the court.
Theattorneys for the relator, considering^the motion absolutely ineritless, ami M*^worthy serious consideratnm, dnl not deign^a reply, but were willing that the mo^^tion might be passed upon by the c ant^without argument. Ihe motion was over^^ruled by the court, and it was CBH eteil that^this would l^e a termination of the dilatory^proceedings, and that without further de-^lav tin merits of the case might lie reached.
Hutnot so; w hen the court had finished^bis decision, Mr. Campbell tiled a deiuur-^rer to the ann ulled writ, which r. ads as fol^lows: ^Now comes the defendant* by their^attorneys, Hiram KHowies and lii aaps u^Caiuplsll, and demur to the amended^writol mandate herein M the following^grounds, to-wit: Kirst. that the said writ^^ anbiinous, uncertain and unintelligible^in this, that it dis s not clearly np|snr in^said writ what election returr^ the said^defendants are required to cuint: that it^does not clearly appear of^what office the said relator was a candidate^for at the election s|scified in said writ:^that the said writ d's-a command the de^^fendant board to count Ihe vote for officers^having no existence in law: that as far as^the relator Is concerned, he has a plain,^adequat. and -|^ cdv reined) at law: and^hie relation iii these pris'l edll.gs shows that^he is a candidate for ^district judge of the^second judicial district,^ composed of the^said county, mid that his said relation is in

toforce an individual right and not as a^cit./eii asking for a remedy to enforce a^public right common to all citizi ns. Sec^^ond, that the said writ fails to stale facts^sufficient lo be replied to.
JudgeKilo whs. iih a reason why this^demurer should be sustained, said that the^writ slat, d that at an election held in pur^^suance of an act of coicrcss certain officers^were to be voted for, whell. IIH s matter of^fact, this was done in pursuance of an^ordinance adopted by the constitutional^convention, and. indeed, his statements^carried to their logical conclusion, at one^time emit indicting the statements of^bis colleague, and at another ridiculous hv^reason of their shallowness ami super^tic la I It v. succeeded ill establishing the^I abut y of the position taken in support of^the motion.
Asin the case of the motion, the argu^^ments of Kuowles in sup|Hirt of the de^^murrer were considered undeserving of a^reply by the other side, and the matter was^suhiuitied to tie court. The demurrer was^overruled and inquiry made as to w hat was^the next step. Neither Campbell nor^Kuowles. showing aiiv disposition to pro^^ceed further. Mr. Toole asked for judgment^against res)s^ndfuts, they having tailed to^make return to the alternative writ. I Ins^was hii op|mrtunity which Mr. Campbell^was anxiously awaiting, and leall/.ing the^fact that a crowded conrt room was listen^^ing, he pt.k'eeded to the clerk's desk^sayiug as he went: ^We will now^priK-eed to give you i hat which your heait so^much yearns for,^ and pris-ecilcd to read^the following answer, constituting the re^^turn to the writ: ^Now come the above^named Win.

Afterthe reading of this answer, a recess^until 7 o'clock was asked for by attorneys

Theaverments in this answer seek to^evade the question raised in the alterna '^live writ, slid the affidavit ii|hiii which it is '^predicated. I he allegations which affect^the material questions arc ignoied. and the^prohahilitv is that at the convening of i^court to-morrow morning the attorneys for^delator Mcllattoii will move for judgment^on the pleadings.
