Senator Carter, of Montana is represented
in Nome by two brothers in law. Galen is Richards
deputy - and is one of the Nome contingent who
signed the charges against me - Galen was a
Com. at Kongarock - & I removed him. Lang
owned the jail at Nome, & Richards paid him
$3600. per annum rent - I reported to the Dept.
that it could be built for $1,800. & the rent was
reduced to that sum per annum - Carter
will, of necessity, be against me, though he told
me in Octo- that I ought to be reapppointed.
Senators Hansborough & McCumber of North
Dakota, are the creatures of Alex. McKenzie
who is yet so sore over his Nome experiences
with which he associates me - that they are leading
the opposition to me - Every Northern Pacific
