''The disbarment of Mr. AVellcome by !
the supreme court will have no bearing
whatever in the contest that has been ■
instituted in the United States senate

Mr. Bickford was one of Mr. AVell- j

and elections. Later, memorials from
the Ohio state central committee of
Payne's own party, from both branches
of the legislature and from the repub
