sued an address to the liepuhlicau of

is the outgrowth of li.e factional strife

eventually killed. The address, among
other things, says that Oie public iu
terest demands that among the several

cordial and courteous co-oiteratkm. and
charges that "many unwarrantable In
jerieroiiees witn the exclusive powers
of the legislature, and attempts to
coerce acquiescence in unreasonable
acts and unwise experiments at the
last session were contrary to the wel
fare of the people of Wisconsin, and
created bitter factional differences in
