The contest between William T. Jam
ison, Republican, nnd .Intnes II. Rrein
crmnnn, Democrat, for the olllce ot
ptosccutlng nttorncy of Jnckon county
In settled, and right has triumphed.
Mr. Ilrcmermann admitted In open
court yesterday thnt Mr. Jamison wns
lawfully eleeted nnd declared thit ho
would pursuo the contest no further.
Mr. Ilrcmermann became convinced
that hh attempt to obtain tho otllce
would fall, and he decided to withdraw
from tho contest. From the day tho
forgeries were committed In the office
of the recorder of voters thnt wiped out
Mr. Jamison's majority of 320 votes nnd
j-.avo Mr. Rreniermann a fraudulent ma
jority of 60 votes until yesterday ho
nnd his friends sought In every way to
obtain possession of the office. Their

first move wns made when they went
Into court nnd attempted to show that
thero wns no law under which a de
feated candidate could prevent his op
ponent, who vvnt known to have been
defeated nnd who was counted In, from
being declucd elected and taking pos
session of the ofllco to which ho was
not elected. They fought every attempt
made by Mr. Jamison to enter Into a
contest for tho olllco ns provided by law.
Vciy much to tho disappointment nnd
cluigiln of Mr. nrcmcrmnnn nnd his
friends, Governor Stone, nfter visiting
Kansas City nnd Inspecting tho foigcil
tnlly sheets In tho ofllco of tho lecorder
of voteis, refused to Issue commissions
to Mr. Hremormnnn nnd to Joseph H.
Keshlcnr, gang candlilato for county
marshal, who also tought to become
tho bonollclnry of tho frauds committed
ut tho polls nnd of tho forgeries In tho
recorder of voteis' olllce. Iloth Hretner
mann nnd Keshlcnr had believed thnt
Just .is soon as the certlllc.ites of their
alleged election, which wero hastily
made out by the county clerk Just nfter
the olllcial canvass of tho votes cast In
J H, RRDMfiRXLVNN.
Kansas City was completed and were
taken upon the first train thereafter to
Jefferson City by a special messenger
of tho gang, reached the secretary of
state and the governor tho commissions
would be Issued. Hut In tills they wcro
mistaken, fioyernor Stone refused to
become a p.aity to tho ft.iuds.
The refusal to Issuo them commissions
djcl not deter Messrs, Hremeimann nnd
Keshlear from making use of every
technicality known to tho law to pre
vent Messrs. Jamison and Sloan from
obtaining possession of the offices of
prosecuting attorney and county mar
shal, to which they wero elected by the
people. They wero finally forced Into
court by tlio decision of Judga Slover,
In which ho held that a defeated candi
date could contest tho election of his
opponent In tha circuit court and that
(ho law providing for contests was suf
ficient to compel the recorder of voters
to open tho ballot boxes and recount the
ballots cast at the recent election or
any other election. Application was
made to the supreme court for a writ
of prohibition, which, If granted, would

Mr. Hremermnnn Is said to be well
verncd In tlm lnw. lto wns advised by
his partner nnd Finis C. F.irr and other
practitioners nt tlm bar In Jnckson
county, nnd they left no legal stone un
turned to win tho contest Into which
they were forced. In a letter nddrcssed
to the public Mr. Hremermnnn declares
that ho R.avo up the contest because he
became convinced that Mr. Jamison
wns elected nnd wns entitled to the of
llco, nnd that this conviction c.amo to
him recently. Nearly e-vciyono rise
was convinced Just nfter tho election
thnt Mr. Jamison was elected prosocut
InB nttorncy, nnd It Is the general opin
ion thnt Mr. tttcmermann knew thnt
ho was not elected, but Was willing to
obtain the otllce nnd hold It ns tho top
resentntlvo of the gang for the sake of
the salary and perquisites thnt go
There Is more In tho retirement of
Hremermnnn from the contest than ap
pears upon tho surface. In addition to
becoming convinced Hint ho could not
win In tlm contest proceedings Institut
ed by Mr, Jnmlson, he knew that n big
bill of costs would bo scored up ngnlnst
him If he continued In tlm contest.
When lm first attempted to benefit by
tho fi.uuls nnd forgeries he li.ad icison
to believe that tlm contest would be a
short one nnd that he would ttlumph.
Hut when Governor Stone by refusing
to commission him kept him out of the
ofllco nnd kept Marcy K. Brown In, ho
began to doubt whether lm would ever
get It. Ho wasn't sure that tlm courts
would tnke his view of tlm election law
nnd shut Mr. Jnmlson out. Later, when
Judge Slovor decided that tho ballot
boes In the possession of tho recorder
of voters could bo opened, matters be
gan to look ilnilc for Mr. Hremprmann.
When Commissioner F.vnns was In
structed to take testimony as to fraudu
lent voting nnd counting nnd the for
geries committed In tlm lecorder of
voters' oHloo, a thick gloom settled down
upon Mr. Hremermnnn nnd his coterie
of friends nnd advisers. They saw
that It was useless to attempt to con
trovert tho testimony of tlm witnesses
who testified concerning fiauds.
Discouraging as are these circumstances,
they would not have caused Mr. Ilremer
mann to go into court nnd admit that ha
was defeated and Mr. Jamison was elected
had It not been for the fact that tho De
mocracy of Jackson county Is rent by dis
sensions. His retirement from the contest
Is tho culmination of tho trouble that has
existed between tho Francis and Stone fac
tions ofi,the''Democracy ot this city since
tho state convention held tn the Auditorium
last April, Tho Franclsltes In Kansas City
have been in hnrd lines since tho election.
They havo been entirely Ignored by Gov
ernor Stone nnd his satellites hi this city
nnd they reallzo that they can expect noth
ing In tho future unless they make their
power felt without del.i.
in his letter to tho puhllc Mr. Ilremer
niann has something to say nbout Marcy
K. Riown. He says he does not want that
gentleman to continue drawing tho salary
of the ofllco of prosecuting attorney It he
cannot obtain the ofllco It is gcncially
known that Mr. Rrovvn and Governor Stone
havo formed nn offensive nnd defensive
alliance. Many other well known Demo
crats of Kansas City have been tnken Into
the combination, which has become so
strong ns to alarm tho Fianclsltcs. They
renlled that ns Marcy K. Riown was the
chief fugleman of the governor In Knn'.is
City something most bo dono to deprive
him of his power. Nothing would so fpeed
lly accomplish that object as depriving
him of tho ofllco of prosecuting attorney,
which he would piobably hold for a year
and perhaps for two years, If tho Jumlson
Rremernnnn contest remained in court.
It was desirable, therefore, from a IVin
clstto standpoint, to relegate Marcy K.
Rrown to prlvato life without further dc.
lay, and the retliement of Mr, Hremer
mann from the contest will have that ef
fect. The Shannons nnd Marcy IC. Rrown, who
wero formerly bosom friends, havo been
nt outs for somn tlmo past. They do not
gleet eaeh other as cordially ns they used
to do. Whllo Marcy K. Rrown has been
malting himself solid with the governor the
Shannons have allied themselves with the
Franclsltes. It will be remembered by thoso
who actively participated In the last cam
paign that Mr, ntemermnnn became a
candidate for tho Democratlo nomination
for prosecuting attorney nt the solicitation
of Joe Shannon. Frank G, Johnson, who
Is now Marcy K. llrown's first assistant,
wanted the nomination und Marcy K.
Rrovvn wanted him to havo It, Although
Marcy K, Rrown and Frank O, Johnson
woiked for tho Democratlo ticket they
never forgavo tho Shannons for bringing
out and nominating Mr. Ilrcmermann. Tho
men who have been the most active In
pushing Mr. Rremermann's side of the
contest aro Franclsltes.
Another thing that figures In the settle
ment of tha contest Is tho pollco commts
slonershlp contest. With Mr, Jamison In
tho prosecuting attorncj's otllce and Mr.
Urown retired to private life, the hatter's
Inlluenco r.t Jcfter?on City will doubtless
ba greatly diminished,
The proceeding's In which Mr, Jamison
was declared elected were had In tho cir
cuit court jestcnlny beforo Judgo Henry,
Mr. Jamison left for Jeftcrson City last
night, accompanied by his attorney,
Churles 11. Small, and Special Prosecutor

Stone, show him a copy of tha Older of
