In another column brief reference Is made to tho opinion of tho Court of Ap- peals in the suit of M. S. Ilaughman vs tho Democratic County Committee relativo to the contest of Mr. McCnrty's right tc. a certificate of nomination for- sheriff. Since writing that paragraph we have se.n tho full opinion of tho court which sustains tho action of tho committee, as well as tho reason which controlled their ruling on McCarty'- demurrer. After reciting the facts of tho content, tho appellate court pro ceeds to say: "Kaughman gave to his successful opponent a notice of conte.t in which he stated that the officer of tho election and tho committee had wrongfully counted more than 200 Illegal votes as having been receiv ed by McCarty, giving the names of tho voters in each precinct and tho reasons why they were illegal. McCarty answered tho notfeo of contest by n counter notice, in which he denied that 200 or any Il legal votes had been cast or count ed for him in tho primary, and de nied specifically that certain voters named by Ilaughman were illegal for the causes named or for nny cause. Ho agreed with Ilaughman that certain other voters named in Daughman's notice of contest were illcRal voters; but denied specifical ly that they voted for him and al leged that they voted for Ilaugh man. McCarty also gave the names of many other persons and alleged that they were illegal voters nnd that they had voted for IlauRhman nt tho primary election. Ho alleged that his real majority over Ilaugh man was much greater than report ed by tho committee. Tho county commltteo met on a day fixed nnd adopted rules for the contest; nnd on that day, after adopting the rule. McCarty by counsel filed a demurrer to Itaughman's notice of contest. Argument of counsel for the parties on this demurrer was commenced before noon and resum ed nnd finished nflernoon. After tho argument the committee left tho court room and went to tho cir cuit court clerk's office to consider and decide tho question submitted. After considering tho matter, tho committee decidrd by n voto of sev en to live to sustain the demurrer nnd dismiss the proceeding. There was no effort by HuURhmnn or hi counsel to file an amended notice or pleading." Further along and referring to Raugh man's chargo that tho committee had failed and refused to give him a trial of his contest, the court says: "Thero can be no douht that tho committee did meet nnd act as n body upon appellee (Itaughman's) contest, by hearing nnd considering a demurrer filed to hU proceedings, which demurrer they sustained nnd dismissed the contest. This ended tho matter in so far ns tho commit tco is concerned. This court has no ' power t" review tho action of tho committee." Referring to Hiughman's contention that the committee should have opened tho ballot boxes nnd counted the ballots because a petition of 10 per cent, of tho voters in certain precincts had request ed that this bo done, tho court says: 'The difficulty In tho way of Ilaugh man is that he did not mako these petitions a part of his notice or pro ceeding; he did not refer to them In any way so as to give the commit tee notico that he relied uKn theso petition to aid him in his proceed ings. And further, thkue Was no CONTEST IMUlCBKnlNG PENDING WHEN THESE PETITIONS SIGNED RX THE VOTEKS OF THE TIII1EE TKE CINCT3 UBFERKEU TO WEItB FILED WITH THE CHAIUltAN KEQ.UBSTING A RECOUNT OF THE U ALLOTS." We are informed that it was upon the ground set forth in this last quotatidn that the commltteo, or somo of them, favored sustaining McCarty 's demurrer. Tho eourt of appeals thus upholds both tho action and tho reason of tho action of tho committee, and roverses tho judgment of tho circuit court. Tho opinion concludes thus: "The judgment of tho lower court is reversed and romanded wltli in structions to dismiss Itaughman's petition." Thus ends this improvident party con troversy. An additional quietus is put to it by tho following lottor from Henry It. Prewitt, chairman of tho Democrat ic Stato Central Committee to Mr. Uaughman, a copy of which was sent by Mr. Prewitt to McCarty: SEPT. 24, 1909. Mil. M, S. Uaughman, Stanford, Ky: Dear Sir.-I have just received from Hon. J. A. Sullivan, State Central Com- roitteeman from tho 8th district, papers filed by you contesting tho nomination of Mr. W. L.
