jority.
The above paragraph, we suppose,
has been prepared at Mr. 1 luge's dictation,
and seems to betray its paternity.
It reminds one of a former
communication from Iloge to the same
paper, in which he drew so largely
upon his imagination for his facts.
\Ve cannot believe that the Board of
Canvassers and the Governor would
?o stultify themselves as to the act
which is here aJloged?give Mr. Reed
a certificate that he had received a
majority of the votes cast, and then
furnish Mr. Iloge another certificate
thai bo had received n majority of the j
loyal votes cast. Has not Mr. Reed j
received a certificate of election? If
so why unless he was duly elected in
the opinion of those so certifying?
What means Iloge's Protest? Is it
not an appeal from the certificate
furnished Mr. Reed? The relative'
positions of the parties In the proceedings
pending to contest the election,
themselves contradict the statements
of the foregoing paragraph.
