John was murdered by a mob He had been notified by a dozen men that a mob was going to kill him that day He saw the nieu with tbeir guns, and he got a rifle When he did this the sheriff arrested him aud placed him under bonds John pointed three men out to the sheriff, and asked him to arrest them aud protect his life The sheriff refused It was a plot and all were in it John told Lloyd (a )oung mau working for him) he thought they would kill him before night He stajedat the postofflce until the second dinner bell rang, when he said he would go to dinner They begged him not to go, but he said he would When he reached the hotel steps McBritle, who was still in his drug store, shot him down with a shotgun, killing him inxtantly Not satisfied with this, McBride fired five shots at him from a revolver after he was dead The mob then began dancing and shouting around the body with the most vile and curses John had received several anony- mous letters telling him he must leave the town The murderer goes free and all because they mast have the postoffice at Carrollton Carrolltou's First Republican Postmaster. My said Mr Matthews, only 21 years old He was a bright, in- telligent boy, He was appointed post- master several months ago at Carrollton and while mnce there there have been a uumber of threats on his life I did not think anything would come of it He was the first Republican postmaster to Uke the Carrollton office for many years, and it was freely said that no Republican should hold the offi-e Carrollton is Senator George's home The dead man conies of an old family in Misbissippi In 1S83 his father was shot down by a mob at Hazlehurat, Miss In the senate. Dec the senate a communication from the governor of Idaho was prese ited, transmitting credentials of the senators elect from that Gtorge L. fehoup and McCon nell Ihe credentials were read and that as Mr Shoup was pres- ent the oath of office be administered to him Mr Vance remarked that the new state of Idaho appeared have elected moie than its fan share of senators, and he thought the credentials should be referred to the committee on privileges aud elec- tions Mr Hoar's motion was agreed to and that senator escorted Mr fehonptothe clerk's he took the oath of office. Mr Vauce bald that it was stated in the newspapers that three senators had been elected in Idaho, and that the legislature had gone to the extent of aligning to each of them the term for which he should serve That was contrary, he said, to the rule of the senate and to the constitution. He thought it proper therefore that the question should be determined by the proper committee of the senate Three Senators from One State Mr Hoar argued that it was clear and unquestionable that one of the two sena- tors, whose credentials had just been pre- sented, would go out on March 4, 1891, aud the legislature beiug in session, had elect- ed a senator for the term that would then begin all question there would be a at that time, because one of those tn o senators would have to go out on that date Mr Carlisle said the legislature of Idaho had 110 nsht to assume (in advance of ac- tion by the senate) that there would be avur-Aucy in the seuate from that state on March No election of a senator to fill such vacancy could take place until it was legally known that that would occur He Imagined thai th'Ure never had been a case in the history of the country where a state legislature had chosen three senators at once Mr Hoar moved to lay on the table Mr Vance's motion to lefer the credentials to the com- mittee on privileges and elections. The vote 22, nays, 15 (no quo riim) Then Mr Hoar withdrew his mo- tion to lay on the table, and Mr VancVi motion to refer the credentials of Messrs. Shoup and McCounell to the committal on privileges and elections was agreed to Hlsooek on the fcleotlona Bill Mr Aldrlch offered his resolution for the amendment of the rules which he had heretofore given notice of. aud asked that it be printed and laid over The senate then resumed cousideration of the elections bill, and Mr Hiscock spoke at length in favor of the measure He said that on the pnrity of elections depended uational health and perpetuity alike The gravity of this question surpassed that of any other question before the senate If It were not for the gravity of the situation the argumeuts made on the other side would excite only mirth He asked on what ground the Democratic party laid claim to the virtue and patriotism which it claimed In this controversy Mr Aldrich said he would not invade ntntc to oppress or disfrftnchiae her people, but where congress hud the constitutional power to allevi ite the wrong or to secure rights more perfectly in co-operation with state authorities, thj senate should not hesitate to accomplish it He said that testimony of frauds and the defeat of the public will has accumulated during this debate and still the other side did not pur pose to correct thm monstrous evil, but rather it was in tho air that measures of obstruction might be resorted to to con tinue it N. t. only had these senators to whom the constitution was dear failed to propose a remedy for thesp evils, but tho> had refused to unite with the Republicans, either in tho senate or in committee, to frame a measure that would secure that result T he cone ti-uon was irresistible that the Democuillc paity was content with tho present older of tilings and pur posed to resist ita improvement Speaking of the frauds against the ballot In New York city, Mr Hiscock Raid that a fact that somewhat prepared the public George N.
