Per Curium. ' This was a contest over the office of county commissioner. Upon the face of the returns the plaintitT in error received a majority of the votes. The defendant, in error tiled a statement and served a notice of contest-. Tliere- Lafter he agreed with the plaintiff in error.,to dismiss the contest proceed ing in-consideration of the payment by plaintiff in error of the costs in curred to a certain date. The parties signed a stipulation for dismissal, and the defendant in error, the contestor. also wrote out a motion of dismissal. Afterwards upon - the. calliuj; of the case for trial before the contest court the defendant in error moved for leave to withdraw the stipulation or dismissal tor reason: "that his veri fied statement of contest demands that an investigation be had; that he was induced to sign under a misappre hension of the facts." The plaintilf in error, the contestee, resisted the mot ion to withdraw the stipulation of dismissal and insisted upon the dis missal of the contest. In support of his contention he gave in evidence tie negotiations between the parties which culminated in the agreement to dismiss. These negotiations ap pear from his statement to have been fair and honorable. The defendant in error gave no reason for desiring to withdraw the stipulation and to pro ceed . with contest other than wnat was above stated in his motion for withdrawal. Under what misappre hension of the facts he was induced to sign the stipulation of dismissal was not in any wise made, to appear. .Neither was the reason for the inves tigation of the matters alleged in his statement of contest made to appear in any other way than by the state m en t" itself. Tne contest court sus tained the application of the contest or, the defeuant in error, for ieave to withdraw the stipulation of dis missal. The contest was proceeded with resulting in findings and a judg ment for the contestor. Upon pr--ceedings in error to the district court tuis judgment was aflirmed,-and from t:ie judgment of affirmance error is prosecuted to this court. Under the facts disclosed by the record no good r.;ason existed for refusing to dismiss t le contest proceeding nor for allow ing the contestor to withdraw, his stipulation for dismissal. The con testor should have been required to prove the reasons alleged by him in support of hi motion for leave to wiiudraw the stipulation of dismissal. While it is true the subject matter of t ie contest was the title to a public orhVfc, a matter in which the public is i.iierested aswell as the claimants to sjcti office, yet tne public interest in I s ich case is not sucii as to justify a rjrusattif the "right to dismiss upon t ie agreement of the contesting c.aimauts. The public rights Were not concluded by the agreement of the parties, nor were they concluded by tiie judgment finally rendered, i'ue public through its official repre sentative would be still at liberty to bring an action to test the right of t ie occupant of the office. Objection is made to the consideration of the claim of error in question because the j motion and stipulation to dismiss are nob set out in tiie bill of exceptions. i but are presented onlv in the form of .copies, along. with other papers com posing the transcript, ana it is said t '.at they do not properlj' consti tute a part of the record but that to bring them to the notice of the court t M-y should be incorporated in the b.li -of exceptions. -V full statement o.' the contests and object of these pa p-is is incorporated in tiie bill or ex c ptions, and this is snllicient. Other c aims of error are made. We do not deem it necessary to notice any of them except one in which it is urged t.iat the contestor forfeited1 his right to the ofHce by failing to tile within i proper time a statement of his elec I tion expenses. A sufficient answer to I this is that the contestor did not con ! test in his capacity as defeated candi date alone, but in his right as anelec itor as well. Whether the statute cited as disabling him from carrying : on the contest because of his failure to rile the statement' mentioned, real ly does so is unnecessary todetermine. Assuming that it did he nevertheless retained his rights as an elector. The j judgment of the court below is re- versed .with direct ions to proceed in j accordance with this opinion. ... j We also publish the opinion, ot the court in the Musgrave case. Out readers will notice that the case is j not yet closed, that Musgrave is not yet commissioner. There is . nothing in the opinion inXimating that he was elected or that Barclay was not e'ected. The Independent refers its j readers to the dissenting opinion of i Judge Rathbone. It is found in the j issue of that paper dated January 23, .1897. It is too long and meaningless to be produced, but those who care ' to look it up will find that there is . nothing in it to confirm the decision of t lie supreme court. Hie importing and paying out of silver last fall by Mr. Yost in this county fc-r whtjat h is beea commented on-all over the United States, Repub lican papers making political sermons , on it; the free silver papers knocking the 53-cent dollar story silly by show ing that the people 'gladly took- tire silver dollar at 100 cents because it ;liad te .stamp or - the XT. S. govern Lment on it saying it is a dollar. It ; wasa great advertisement for ourcity. Rut one of the largest New York City papers with a circulation of 240,000 looks at it seriously, and has the fol lowing which has attracted conzress, and mav cause a law passed compelling national banks to receive any money that has a government stamp on it. Here is anarticle: A BASKIXO OBJECT LESSCtX. "A resident contemporary draws a strange moral from a Kansas inci pent: The Yost Milling .-company, wheat buyers at Hays City, being at outs with the local bank, (ana only one in that city) imported thousands of silver dollars from the United States sub-treasury at St. Louis." These lie paid out for wheat to the farmers who had been - deeply infected with the free silver craze and had been zealous supporters of Rryan a year ago, it being the only straight democratic county in that state. It was a common sight to see farmers going around carrying a wheat sack containing 500 to 2,000 sil ver dollars, and paying their Dills that county having raised last season two million bushels of Vheat, many farmers having 2,500 to 5,000 bushels on their farm. The local bank (First National) refused to exchange gold or greenbacks for the silver, or to accept the Mill company as a depositor, and the silver dollars became a drug. Mo body wanted silver and 'men wtTo wished to pay olf mortgages found they could not do it with silverdollars' and paper and gold went to a pre mium. "For two months Hays City had a practical illustration of silver monu metalism. gold and paper disappear ing as it were by magic to give place to less desirable currency." The banking paper thus comments on the above; 'The real nut of this Hays City in cident is not that silver caused green backs and gold to disappear but that a national bank had the power and audacity to interfere with the legal operation of the mouetary system of these' United States and refuse a lead ing business corporation (not a private individual) from doing business with a natioual bank. -Congress has de creea that a silver dollar is as good as a greenback dollar or a gold dollar or any other kind of a dollar coined or printed or stumped in this country. All political parties indorsed this equality scheme and every federal ad ministration sustaius it. Yet a cross roads bank sets at defiance all laws, all usages, by refusing the silver dollar its lawful rights. The question of free coinage of sil ver has no more to do with tne Hays City episode than tiie statute of limi tations iias to do with the rise of the" tide. Tiie election of William Mc "lv.iul.ey in 18 Mi settled the free coinage oL silver question, for the time at least. What the United States is concerned in fs whether a bank is big ger than the United States. If the Hays City banking concern can over turn our monetary scheme in its neighborhood, what is to prevent the banks in every other city and town doing the same thing in theirs? And if they all had the same disre gard for common sense, wiiat power on earth could keep this country from a perpetual state of panic? And after all of the aljove the amus ing part of it is that Ed. Madden, the president of the bank, is a rank tree silver republican, and John J. Ingalls is a large stockholder. Hays City Free Press. Cure that Cough with Shiloh's Cure. The best Cough Cure.
