v Good Work of Wlsby and Horner In

Editor Palmer of tho Medford Pa-
triot writing of tho argument of At-
torneys J. Wlsby and G. J. Horner lu
Grant county seat caio says:
The argumont of Joseph Wlsby
which occupied tho time of tho court
for over nine hourr was ono of the
clearest and containing tho best
po.nta of any that tho writor over

guments made by tho defense and
ahowod by authorities and reason
very conclusively that tho right to
hold tho election was sustained and
that tho statutes wero sufficiently
clear to onablo ono not technically
-critical to understand. He also took
up tho contest from ltd lnclplency
and snowed conclusively the glaring
frauds perpetrated by Pond Creek and
its allies. His argument sustained

ceived a. majority of all tho logal
votes cost. It was one of tho most
conclusive and convincing crgu
montd over submitted to tho court.
On legal points he submitted author
ities to sustain his contention. Mr.
Wlsby has made a record in tho
Grant county seat election case that
should place him as the foremost at
torney in Oklahoma on suqh cases
The election was nold in May 1899
and from that date to this the moat
tot his time has been devoted to in
vestigations on this subject.
Mr. Horner devoted most of his ar-
gumeut to tho legal phases of the
