this State They assert that he was robbpd in the contest that de prived him of his office by Demo erotic partisans but fail to Bay that he obtained the stolen prop erty through a court whose major sty is Republican But a few days ago a Republican Congress heard the plea of a Republican contest- o ant from the 3rd Kentucky District against Mr Rhea a Democrat elected from that district and this Republican Congress ousted Mr Rhea and installed the contestant This of course was not robbery but a plain duty if you would listen to their plea Mr Tilden was elected President of the United States but it was not robbery for Mr Hays to become the President from a Republican standpoint When Republicans must take a decision from a Democratic source they claim that it a partisan de cisiou if adverse to their conten tions but when Republicans decide against Democrats then it is only a fair and impartial judg ment So far as Mr Pratt is con corned we have nothing to say against him He fought his way through the courts and won and by legal procedure ho is entitled to the office Every man has the conIgrounds either in or out of toe orlourdenyIcaricase the decision adverse to their wishes to
