How conld he he mistaken in his confident assertion r Was he really ignorant, .or was he simply mean? VYVe give him the benefit of ;the former 'sop-' position. We know thai others were ' resting under a, like misconception of the facts, among them a prominent Democratic Senator." "We are not disposed to do injustice to even as ' hitter and unscrupulous a partisan as we regaic Senator ; Morton' to be. We presume then that he had simply blundered through, ignorance, or a proper knowledge i of the exact senti ments of Senator Mason.
