"The conduct of some of the

the Lest information we can gather,
if ail the legal votes which were of
fered, had been received, the whole
Democratic ticket would havo been
elected. The question now to be tie
cided is. whether in view of all the
facts the Democratic candidates
should not contest the seats of their
opponents. There are other points

the spirit and letter of the statute.
and persisted in against the remon

present is as good an opjKrtunity as
may he presented, for testing the re

every man whose vote was rejected,
but not recorded, to enter a complaint
against the judges who failed to make

grand jury, or to bring an action of
debt against them. J ho palpable,
and in some cases, outrageous viola

demand that they should be made to
answer for their misconduct before
the proper tribunals. If citions are
to be disfranchised at the caprice of
a judge ot an election, or driven
from the polls by the arbitrary, ille
gal nnd abusive conduct of a public
officer, then the right of suffrage is a
mere mockery. A fine of $'200 im
