So reflection upon the court was con

(500 and sixty days' imprisonment in

court he was tho better enabled to do,
and the other day, just beforo the grand

when the panel of tho jury was found
to be short, four Cameron men were
elected to complete it.
The following i tho publication mado
editorially in the Enterprise on July 21,
1692, upon which the bill was found:
It is rumored that an effort is being
made for the removal of Brewster Cam

court. When ho was appointed to that
position there was a strong protest
gainst It unavailing!' made, and at
that time the Enterprise pointed out the
grave impropriety of a person having so
much prospective litigation being placed
so close to the councils of the court, but
the compact remained unbroken. Upon
the authority of a gentleman in position
to know tho facts, who received his in
formation direct from Major Cecil Clav,
chief clerk of tho department of justice,
it seems that o protest came from that
department ngainst the appointment of
Uuieron as clerk, based upon his record

fflani things charged of him was that ho

Democrats Want no Fed
And will Oppose the Ruling of
That Fodoral Supervisors of Elec

and Election Enclosures.
New York, Nov. 2. Associated
Press. Within tho twenty-four hours
last passed, birth has been given to el
ements which may come together in
this city on election day with a sharp
crash. One of the elements is the an
nounced adherence by Attorney Gen
eral Miller to the custom of the past
under Judge Bradley's decision in ac
cordance with which fedoral supervis
ors of election may pass anywhere they
deem proper within election enclosures.
Tho other and opposing element, lies
in tho fact that Lieut. Gov. Sheohan,
chairman of tho New York state Demo
cratic campaign committee, has issued
nn address to the Democrats of the
state in which he cites Judge Brewe'a
decision and calls on Democrats to see
to it that federal supervisors do not en

United States supremo court, has ruled
that supervisors had no right to enter
the booths or go behind encloiures
where ballot boxes are.
Secretary Defeest of the Democratic
state committee, speaicing touay oi
Miller's circular and Sheehan'a oppos
ing order to Democrats said he believed
federal supervisors had no right in the
booths and they should not be allowed
there. He said tho Democrats would
see to it that they stayed outside tho
enclosure where tho booths and ballot
boxes are and this construction fore
shadows a class of tho two elements re

that Acting Attorney General Aldrich
