In .Mound City, on tho 22d day of this
month, I was g'oing down towards tho
ears and 1 met Mathuw Donahue, who
hudjutt come in on the train. I said
"hello! -Mat, whero are you going?" He
said "I'm going down to Henry Carter's;
l m going to suo Munn tor that jHOO." I
mid "ulf right! ,1 11 go with you.

then held up liUhand and was sworn to tlio

all this time Mr. Donahuo was duly sober,
had not been in a saloon uflr his arrival
In town and before ho swore, and know- per
fectly woll what hu was doing. This is tho
truth" about this matter, as 1 know ot my
own personal knowledge."
Now, here is evidence that, bofoio
tho taking of the oath, and contempo
raneously with tbo act, Donahuo was
sober, and was conscious uf tlio full
force of bis couduot. But this is not
all. After making tlio aflidavit and
instituting suit against Munn, Donahuo

fact that he bad commenced suit against

We might produce a jiage ,of such

siiiricieiit to convince any unprejudiced

duly sober and conscious." The wit-iif-sus
are nil of unimpeachable verac

iu tho counter affidavit '.' This iuc.
lion brings us to tho second isue;

'uinlue inlluenee' uud duress?' We
have no doubt the young man was tain
peicd with threatened with bs of

of this assertion, -we point to tho fact
that, at the time of making the counter
affidavit, bo was excited, frightened,
and acted like a man under durus.-;
that he is now guarded from (hu ap
proach of Democrats; uml that, In a
brief conversation with Jhvyer uud

that, when be could get away into better

Why wan .Donahue in aueh trepida
tion when hu took tho second oatb cou
trtidietlug bis first? 'He Ucl tears,
seoiuod very much excited, and, iu the
language of Kirk, "left town with
.Stivers" bis Radical employer, "in very
"much distressed condition." These
facts point to the conclusion Hint undue
,iiillucnoos were brought to bear upon
him, ntid that be actually perjured him
self in tbo interest of ltadicalifin.
And subsequent declarations of
Donahue uud other facts go to sustain
Ijiis conclusion. At Mounds Junction
Ponaliuo told Dwyer and Cain that all
he wanted was an opportunity to
explain hits conduct and publish thu
facts connected with bis Immolation by
the WaQleals-Hto"' unbosom" Vuusolf,

he has been acting under duress? The
fact that the truth is iu the first

lishes this fact beyond controversy.

of subornation of perjury, If they can
