The case of the two republicans who
claim to be the legally elected senator
from Montana i based entirely upon al
leged frauds in Silver Bow county. By
throwing out all the democratic votes in
one precinct, they were able to make a
preteit of having carried tbe legislature.
The democrats all along, says the N-w
York Sfor, have furnished ample proof
that no fraud was committed there, and
that Bay attempt to go behind tbe returns
would be the bI barefaced robbery.
But the rt-pnbli an editors, who have
grown so accustomed to defending fraud
that they rather delight in it, have kept
on shouting "Wolf" until they are black
tn the face.
An Investigation hss just been finished
which ought to settle all doubts as to the
honesty of the election in Silver Bow
county It seems that the result of the
shrievalty contest hinged on the disputed
precinct, just as tbe legislature did. Ac
cordingly, the whole circumstances of the
election have been gone Into carefully
and both republicans and d mocr,t have
produosd all tbe evidence at tbetr dis
posal. The result has been a complete
vindication or tne democrats, it was
