successor and William S Vares as Peppers and their states bad to wait while Smith and Vare fought for the scats they mately to be definitely excluded however on that their nominations had cost too much and that some of the money was tainted besides There have been occasions before when due to one sort of a deadlock or another a single senatorship has remained tied up for a couple of years but
