The Herald and News does not
know anything about the facts in the
testimony of Mr. C. C. Davis before
the investigating committee aid it is
not Our purpose to discuss it, but it
does seeml) Ito be but justice to tIe
Newberrv delegatilol to say that the
inference that may he drawnl fromi
Mr. Davis' testimony that they were
bought is scarcely borne out by the
facts. Mr. Evans being fron their
own coulity it is but. natural that
they should vote for him and that
lie should expect their vote. There
would therefor-e he no reasonl for
him to bily tlmTll evel if he were in]
the business (of hiuying votes an(d
they were purclasable, neither of
whieh we believe. ie would hard
lY undertake to purchase that of
which Ie was already assured.
We thinlk it ilt proper to eall at-i

The senational incident in the dis
11en1sary investigation, says the Re

manly conduct of Representative Ly
on and his detective, Mr. Klingen
berg, in dragging before the commit
tee a private conversation that there
that there was nothing in, made at a
whist party in the presence of a.par
ty of guests at Dr. Earle's home.
The stenographer. Capt. A. M.
Deal, well known throughout the
state, and who has been prominent
inl social affairs here for several
years, denlounced tle detective, whom
Ie had introduced at Dr. Earle's
home. as "a dirty. sneaking, spy"
for " going to a gentleman's home
in the capacity of a gentleman an(
acting as a detective.'' and lie would
apolo.ize for taking him into the
presence of ladies and gentlemen.'
And in the succeeding breath, shak
ing his finger at Representative Ly
on, who was a guest at Dr. Earle's
and at Mr. G. R. Remberts', told
him that brining out such matters in
the circumstances did not square
with his ideas of what constituted a
gentleman, if it did with Mr. Lyon's.
Mr. Lyon several times attempt
ed to suppress Mr. Deal. hut failed.
and even the committee quieted him
only after repeated efforts.
Mr. Lyon defended himself by ask
inI Mr. Deal if lie did not know Mr.
Klingenberger's business when lie
escorted him to Dr. Earle's home.
"Yes. I did; but I took him there
as a gentleman, and not as t spy,'
was the hot reply.
Mr. Kliiienber- is a Western man
of apparently limited opportunities
in such matters. and his conduet iz
not so great a surprise as that of Mr.
Lyon, who was bred a gentleman.
The tilt started on the -heels of ,the
testimony of ex-Mayor Earle, who
was indignant at tihe turn affaits
took, though lie did not hesitate -to
"Doctor, do you ever recall that
yoi ever made a statement that one
of these dispensers told you tfhat
there was a good deal of moiey in
the biusinless-that there was $6.000
oil the side. hut that he had to rive
