defeated candidate has been showing
In the matter of lato. In their campaign
beforo the electorate that was
'entirely missing from their contest.
Inquiry among Senator Chilton's
friends hero as to the motives underlying
his action, they profess to be as
much at sea as those who are not so
close to him. All say, however, that
he is fairly obsessed with tbe idea that
he can keep the man who beat him out
of the Senate, and some there are who
say that, in that event, Chilton expects
to have another try at it, hopeful of
better resultB for himself. lhiB theory
is opposed by others of his friends
who decluro that if Senator Chilton
persists and should succeed, which nobody
except himself horo has ever ex
pressed the opinion as being probable,
in preventing Mr. Sutherland taking j
the seat in the Senate to which he i
was elected by a majority approximat
ins 6,000, he would iy>t be aB ptrong
before the people, nor in his party, as |
he would be if ho were to "take his
medicine and lose like a sport." As
they phrase it "none but the game lame
ducks ever come back."
The Republican senators who composed
tile campaign committee in that
bady last full, called Mr. Sutherland
before them a day or two ago. They
wanted to know the status of bis case
with Senator Chilton, and among other^
things tlicy were anxious to learn
was whether the Republican party orgalnzation
in AVeat A'irglnia realized
the gravity implied in what the defeated
senator from AVest Virginia
was undertaking to do, which was not
only to deprive the Senate of a Republican
vote from AA'est Virginia, but was
to seek by every manner of moans to
place the party orgainzation in a bad
light before the people of the Btate. U
<<t nniipratnnil that- \Tr finthnrl'irfl tnlrl
i them thut, up till now, there hail been
little public attention paid to th. eon|
teat, us It was hard to convince the
| public that there was anything much
, serious in it; that tho people ot the
i state knew that ho had won fairly und
, squarely over Senator Chilton, and
that this sentiment was widespread
and divided by no party lines. The
committee advised Mr. Sutherlqml. it
is said, to take some steps to have his
friends, and Republican editors especially,
pay some attention to tho mutter.
it was too serious an affair for
the party in the Senate, whatever may
i be thought of it in West Virginia, to
! neglect looking after carefully.
A list of the witnesses thq| Senator
i CTilton has had summoned to tho "judicial
inquiry" in tho Miller court at
Hlnton, has been received hero. It in:

on down the line of subordinates; and
a considerable array of Republican
leaders from all parts of the state. In

that Senator Chilton wants to
get hold of the affidavits on which
votes were cast, as well us the registration
lists and similar evidence of

Miss Ryan, who thought the baby

first learned of the child when
the Mutters suit came up.
William Pinzler, Miss llyan says,
is the father who will marry her ou
his return from trenches in France, j
tli'j election. It is figured that having,
as his petition filed in the Miller court
indicates, assumed that the votes cast
on affidavit were all cast against him,
despite the fact that in all but two or j
three of the nine counties specified 1
his party scored substantial gains, he ]
expects somehow to show that if he '
can get hold of the election lists, etc. '
The case is one, it can truthfully be '
said, which has the politicians in both 1
parties guessing.
The State Court of Appeals has set
next Thursday as the date of the hear
ing on the injunction proceedings
started before it by counsel for Mr.
Sutherland. Should the court's dect- ;
sion bo adverse to him, which isn t
expected by any means, the observers 1
figure that it would come then direct
to the United States Supreme Court.
In that event, the "Judicial inquiry"
prayed for by Senator Chilton In the |
circuit court of Judge James H. Miller.
of Hlnton, would be a prospect exceedingly
remote, to statfc it mildly.
Within the past two weeks, the pres- <
sure from Democrats on Senator Chilton
to drop his contest, abide the re- 1
suit of a fair race and an honest
award, and "be good," according to the
talk umong the politicians here. It is
a significant phase of the affair that 1
