EdwardT. Martin, late democratic can^^didate lor clerk and recorder, will lib^a motion In the district court to Strike^from the files the stipulation dismissing
th-contest suti of Jossnt R. HastM
againstU M. IfcDonnell. The motion
willi', based eg alleged fraud, bribery.
corruptpractice and conspiracy. The^court will be permitted to reinstate the^case and to older | recount of the votes^cast for the different candidates for^clerk and recorder at the late election.^This will give Martin a chance to In^^tervene In said action.
Thegrounds taken for the motion^are: FlrBt^That said contestant and^contestee or their attorneys or either^of them had no power, right or author^^ity under the luw to dtsmtss said ac^^tion and contest by stipulation without^a hearing having been had
SecondThat the court could not, un^^der the law. dismiss the contest by rea^^son of snid stipulation, because said^contest was a matter of public concern
Third- That said stlpul.tt ion between^said contestant and said contestee was^brought about through fraud and brib^^ery contrary lo law.
Foulill-That the said F. T. Marl In^received the highest number of legal^rotes oast in ths election held on the^trd day of November, lvm, for the nfkee
ofclerk and r, colder In and for the^county of Cascade, stale of Montana,^and a as duly i k ii, d to aatd oiiice.
Fifth-Thatthe Ssrruct tally kept^upon the votes cast for the eaaM af^clerk ami recorder, as shown by Ike^votes recounted in the con teal of Dtck-^enaan va. gelslkocao in the ahove-
nnn.cdcourt, showed said K. T. Martin^to have n eelvi d more b yal \,,ics Ihan^either Jos, ph VI. Huston or said I.. M^Mi Donnell
SixthThat said stipulation between^said contestant and said contestee was^made for a Consideration made upon^the piirt of said contSStSS to said con^^testant, to-wlt: That said contestant^should receive a deeMty/ahlp In the of^^fice of rJsrk and recorder, if he, the said^Huston. Would sign tic natd stipulation^to dismiss said contest against said^contestee,. which wns contrary to law^and In Violation Of the public will.
Seventh-Thatboth said contestant^and said contestee are Ineligible lo and
disqualifiedfrom hoi,limr the nanus af^i li rk and roc circle r in and f u ihe coun^^ty of Caacmie, state of Montana.
Ktgktk-Thatboth rnnlaslsnl nml^contesp e received ths namasr nf votes^cast for them in said stoetlog by reason^of indue, no nls held out by them to
electors contrary to law,
NinthThat said C. T. Martin re^^ceived the highest number of leua!^votes cast for siiid offlce and WSI ilu'\^edee-ted as such clerk und recorder at^said election.
TenthThat the county commission^^ers of said county of Cascade, Montana,^and the returning board thereof unlaw^^fully issued to said U M. McDonnell a^certificate of election, which should^have bees Issueel and delivered to said^H. T. Martin.
Eleventh^That said Joseph H. Hus^^ton and said Lawrsaos M. McDonnell
didnot receive more than l.L'OO votes^each for saiel office of e lerk and re^^corder of said Cascade county, Mon^^tana, and that said K. T. Martin re^^ceived more than 1.1M2 legal votes.
TwelfthThat said Joseph K. Huston
andsaid Uswrence M. McDonnell each^and both offered brii.es to electors of
saidcounty prior to said election.
Amongthe uttlilinits made is one of^rather a sensational nature from the^plaintiff, F. T. Martin, who nib gee that^he, us a qualified electee, received Ihe^nomination for c ounty cle rk at the r^^ ^:-
alardemocratic r on vent km and thai^he received a greater number of legal^vot.-s than either of tks other tva can^^didates for the Offcast The' II, ilillllil t loll^of e tiler candidal, s Is refe rred to at^some length and the evidence In the^Huston-McDonnell contest cite d, n is^th, n alleged that Huston and Mi Den*^ask entered an agrsanaeal whereby
tiny cue h kept a tally of the vote s cast^for clerk mid recorder during the^count in IkS Die liermnn-Geisi horpe^contest case and that, lading that^Martin had retoived more legal votes,^according to the recount, than either^Huston or McDonnell, they then aad
thep-airreeel that AbTioiin,'I should^ha\e the 0B^U0 und that MUBtOU should
beappointed deputy, in constderatloa^^ f which Huston atgned a stlpomtlon
mlsslagIkS suit; that this agt
meataraa entered lata for ths pur pons^of preventing a recount af Ike ballots^i ^ . which wi'ii,i bars shown the^elc tlon ,,r the said B, T. Martin, it is^also alleged that afte r the tiling of the^stipulation McDonnell advised gam
.Moore-,one of his deputies, that he had^no further use for him as ha and Hus^^ton had compromised the- contest anon^the t.rms agreed above-, nnd that th^^leaseea said compromise- was rnt,t-,|^Into was that Martin had received^more legal votes than either he (Mc^^Donnell) eer Huston. Th^ case already^Is attracting wble attention unci a good^di'al of interest is centered In the re^^sult.
