der tho oleetoral plan (llbson would have
been l.ld votes ahead. To he beat, and by
one p.-pular vote only, is too hard, ami,
therefore, Dr, Camp has discovered a great
fraud, charging the delegates Irom Kosse
with having the election returns changed
to 1 l.'i. instead of Mil votes, which would
have given him one voto nlieiul. The gen
tlemen incused of this crime are
of high standing and very few people here
believe the report, but should it he so, and
the fraud established, Captain Jtiibsou is
morolha'i willing to dccliiio tho nomina

a dodge n Dr. Camp In come out as nn In

the report has been Marled hv the green
