OWENS THEII0MII1EE The Canvassing' Committee De rides the Matter Today. Declares Him the Winner by a Plurality of 255. ENTERED A PROTEST. Breckinridge Writes to the Can vassing Committee. Hasivt a Shadow of Doubt That Owens Was Beaten. Frankfort, Ky., Sept. 22. The Dem ocratic committee for the Seventh con gressional district was called to order by Chairman Fieid McLeod at 12:30, with all members present A protest against Chairman McLeod voting and a decision of Chairman Carroll of the state commit tee, deciding that McLeod could vote only in case of a tie, was iilod ia behalf of Breckinridge. After canvassing the vote by couuties, a resolution was unanimously adopted declaring Owens the nominee by a plu rality of 2oo voles, and the committee ad journed. The following communication from Colonel Breckinridge was received, read and ordered tiled: To the Democratic Committee of the Seventh Congressional District: Under lue statutes of Kentucky, and the order of this committee, you are duly auttiuiiZ ;d and constituted the governing authority empowered to count the votes received by the candidates iu the primary election ot Septeuiberlo iiiid to declare the candidate receiving tiie highest number of vulej the nominee of the Democratic party in this district, and you alone nave tue power to determine upon the form and manner of the proceedings you will take to discharge this duty. In case of a contest you and you alone have the power to hear and determine such contest and decide who shall be entitled to the nomination and you owe it to tho Deiiioc-ra.ic party of the district and to your seuso of right that the du'.ies im posed upju you shall not be performed by any one else, nor shall they be en croached upon. You and you alone, have the power to prescribe what political qualifications shall be possessed by such legal voters as resiue within the district and desire to participate iu that primary, and you and you alone, have the right to de termine whether the rules laid down by you, aud in which were necessarily in corporated the provisions of the statutes have been coaip.ied with. I deem it my duty I owe to the Demo cratic party of the district, to my frieuds and to myself to state this principle aud protest against any action of any judge, couuty committee of any county, or private individual which eucroaches or attempts to encroach upon your ex clusive jurisdiction, so that whatever has been done in the primary may not be held to be a precedent to bo used here after for tho want of an open and formal protest agaiust it. 1 iormaily protest against tue action of tjie judge of the Fourteenth judicial j district iu the issue of the extraordinary ! ordor in the case of W. E. Sims and oth- I ' ers vs. others. This committee met Sept ! 8th and adopted certain rules; the ! plaintiffs waived until the afternoon of ! Frida3, the 14th. having had ample time to take such steps as they deem ueces S sary and gave proper notice to me or to j the nominal defendants, so that a hear ! ing might have been had. I This delay was known to that judge ! and was of itself cause for refusal to ; issue any restraining order. But, I as I well as the nominal defendants lived : near enough for notico to have been ' given of the application for the restrain j ing order, o that tha judge '. might pas3 upon it after a i hearing, And with the oppor I tunity afforded to present reason against it aud the issue of the so-called tempor ary injunction, which, under tho circum stances, was equivalent to a final aud per manent one, and the setting of the henr iug of any application for its dissolution or modification for a date six days after the election, when it would already have accomplished its purpose, is Buch an ex traordinary abuse oi" the discretion lodged in a judicial officer, even if that oliieer had jurisdiction aud the order were one which on hearing might properly have been issued, that it ouirht not to pass without at tracting universal attention and re ceiving the unanimous condemnation and when it is remembered that this judge has been for many years my bitter personal enemy, permitting and partici pating in malignant attacks upon me in many parts of the country, aud was also my heated political enemy, his action be comes the-more extraordinary. This act in and of itself would justify me in making a contest and justify this committee in refusing to declare the bar.eticiary of such conduct the nominee of the party. I also deem it rny duty to solemnly avow that I have not the shadow of a doubt that I have received as against Wni. C Owens of Scott county, a majori ty of the legal Democratic votes of this district, and I am legally entitled to be declared the nominee of the Democratic party in thii district. The inexplicable increase of the vote cast at this primary over the vote cast in 1S92. would be sufficient reason to re quire of this committee an investigation. I append to this a comparative table of the votes cast for Mr. Cleveland aud my self ia 1S92. and for governor in 1S91 in the eight counties constituting this dis trict aud the vote cast at the recent pri mary.
