if not disgusted with what is called the
"Bribery Case." But notwithstanding
this I am compelled to choose between
submitting to falsehoods and misrepre
sentations which are detrimental to me
and to the position which I hold or
print, and havine

gratuitously impugning the motives o!
and slanderinz a court, when the party
' agrieved does not do so, is indicative o!
depravity rarely witnessed.
The second falsehood is a direct one,
willfully told, in stating that ''be (I)

selectin? that paper as his medium of
communication with the public, rather
than give all an equal chance to present
it to their readers while it was still

bell knew it to be false, for he knew that
the Mocking Bird published the whole
matter, letter for letter, as it appeared
in the Voice, and oa the same day. Be
sides this fact, I told Campbell on the
day which the statement appeared in
the Voice, that I had also furnished the
Mocking Bird the manuscript. The
third implied falsehood is that I had
refused him the manuscript, when he had
never asked for it and had given me to

showed, that he rid not want the manu-

stantially that since I was nominated
and elected as a Republican and on the
Republican ticket, that the Republicans
had a right to know of m official con
duct: that most of them read his nanpr
and that he had done me an injustice,
concluding with a request that he pub
lish my statement to the bar. When
the manuscript was left a request was
also made that he inform me whether he
would publish my communication. I
heard not a word from him, but when
the next issue of his paper appeared, on
24tb inst., I was coolly informed that
the columns of his paper were closed
against me; and im-tead of a retraction
or modification of the first insult, he
proceeds to add others and publish willful
falsehoods and make a false statement of
the contents of my statement to the bar
and knowing that by publishing the
statement his slanders would be refuted,
he declines publishing it.
Because of this unprincipled conduct.
1 am compelled to ask room in your
paper to refute his slanders. It is not
possible for me to say how others may
regard this conduct of slanderinz a man
and then denying him space tor a reply,
but to me that action is so dirtv and
cowardly that it cannot be properly de
scribed without shocking the senses of
every respectable person. Thehvpocrisv
of the man in pleadirjg that he could not
afford the expense of publishine the
statement is apparent whenheconsumes
nearly enough space in garbling the state
ment; in making other insolent com
ments and in prevaricating, as would
nave been required for the statement.
The first series of falsehoods arp in thp
following fourteen lines:
'While unwilling to do injustice to
Judge Ray or any of the other parties
interested, we muBt decline at this late
day to go to the expense of nublishins
matter which Judge Ray, after denying
to tne newspapers tor publication for
several weeks after its delivery, finally
saw fit to grant the exclusive use of the
manuscript to a Bingte paper, the Voice,
thus selecting that paper as his medium
of communication with rh nnMin
rather than giving all an eaual chance to
present it to their readers while it was

knew would completely refute such false
hoods and slanders.
The Voice and Mocking Bird were at
first refused the manuscript and the edi
tors of both papers stated that I refused
because of an unwillingness to appear to
be persecuting Mr. Elliott. But when
those who pretended to be the bar gave
their preambles and my letter to the
public, through the Mocking Bird, and,
as I believe, misled the editor of that
paper regarding the law in the case and
caused him to make unfavorable com
ments, it seemed to me to be necessary
to give the manuscript to the press in
order that all of the facts micht appear.
The fourth falsehood in the editorial is:
"Judge Ray asserts that he made no
promise o! leniency." This is false No
such statement was ever made by me.
Besides, so far as I know, no one has
ever claimed that I made any promises
of the kind. I simply stated what was
The fifth falsehood is: "He (I) re
proved the bar for their officiousness
and meddling." I distinctly stated that
only fourteen (14) oi the thirty-nine
(39) practicing attorneys of the bar had
attended the pretended bar meeting and
that eighteen were not invited, and re
fused to recognize the fourteen as the
The sixth falsehood in the editorial is
the following: "Judge Ray's admission
in his statement is that his own unctr-
roboratei testimony is all the evidence
that would be available to convict the
offending attorney before a jury, and
that for such a purpose Elliott's oath
or denial would weigh just as heavily as
his in affirmation." No such statement
as this, or anything resembling it was
made by me, and the statement is an in
famous slander and falsehood. The
statement which I made to the bar, not
only showed that my statement could
be corroborated by H. L. Woods, but
by other evidence which I came in
possession of four days after the resolu
tions were adopted. The statement
also showed why action was delayed,
but Campbell declines to publish the
statement for the simple reason that he
prefers to publish a falsehood rather
than the truth. That he has a personal
pique at me he does not deny but for
the present I shall not give them as the
public probably does not care lor them.
I doubt the propriety of my appearing
in print in this kind of acommunication,
but I feel that since Campbell has here
tofore been considered a reputable man
and as he undoubtedly has the ears of a
large part of my constituents, that I
OJght to be excused, if not justified, in
exhibiting the ungainly creature in his
true light. That I have not misrepre
sented the language Mr. Elliott used on
the occasion in question no one doubts,
and it seems cruel and criminal in Camp
bell to demand of Elliott that he make
"some sort of a denial or statement."
Whatever may be properly said of Mr.
Elliott's conduct, he seems to have too
much manhood to tell an untruth.
simply to gratify the wishes of a politi
cal cabal, notwithstanding the strong
inducements oHered by the unscrupu
lous few so to do. None except him
with the "itching palm" will censure me
in this matter and had he been in mv
stead he would now be the possessor of
nve hundred dollars and the countv
would be minus over three times that
sum. In conclusion I will say that I re
gret the necessity of this letter, but when
a man slanders me in his paper and then
closes the columns against me he i
guilty of an outrage that I will not
biiently submit to.
