AN OPEN CONFESSION.-
A Reformed Democrat Tells Why He
Juinc.i the Republican Party.
A Minucsosa Democrat,' originally
from the South, has seen the error of
his ways, has repented, and-will hence
forth show his change of faith by his
His confession appears in the
Minneapolis Tribune. In the South he
grew up a Democrat "by absorption."
His Democracy was not shaken by the
shot-guu policy, and if He had stayed
below the Mason and Dixon line he
would have remained a Democrat to
this day. But the disreputable and
criminal methods upon which the Ames
Gubernatorial campaign was conduct
ed were too much for him. He has re
pudiated the party for the sake of his
political manhood, and is henceforth a
Republican. To use his own words:**!
I have been a life-long Democrat, and to ray
friends of that party 1 have no apologies or ex
cuses to make for what I now have to say. In
the first place 1 confess to an ignorance of the
silence of politics that any Democrat might be
proud of, and-I believe if I had continued to re
side in the South, -where I was raised, should
always have continued to be a Democrat, on
the principle that what was good enough f6r
my father was good enough for me but as a
citizen of Minnesota I have seen enough to con
vince me that the policy of the Democratic
party is inimical to the vital interests of the
country, and more especially to this immediate
part of it. Being an admitted ignoramus in
political ethics and an avowed Democrat by sur
roundings and absorption (the most rigid fol
lowers of any cause are those who absorb their
sentiments from their surroundings rather than
from logical convictions), it will readily.be seen
that something very radically and palpably
wrong must have transpired to upset the calm
of long settled and complacent devotion to^he
party of Jeffersonian simplicity and innocuous
desuetude. During the campaign of 1888 1 was
in a position to know very intimately the work
ings of the great cause, and a regard for
decency compels me to say that I became
ashamed of my party. In the South I have
seen some of the workings of the "shot
gun policy," but in justice to my
Southern friends I will. aver that their
methods were respectable compared to those
practiced, by the Democrats of Minnesota a
year ago last fall. I was prepared to see much
evil done, that good might come of it, and re
viewed with complacency the little plots and
schemes in which all elections abound but
when the saloons and bawdy houses of two
cities were turned into electioneering joints,and
all their immoral and corrupting tendencies
brought to bear on that numerous olass whose
ballots are a merchantable commodity when
the sluice gates of calumny and billingsgate
and filth were turned on men whom I knew to
be personally pure, and when my own party
put forward a man known to me and all the
public as personally and notoriously impure, I
began to question whether I should submit to
the domination of partisanship. I heard the
public speakers of my own party charging the
opposition with bribery and corruption, heard
the leader and candidate of that -party state
publicly that he was worth "not to exceed
5100," and yet I knew that a great many thou
sands of dollars were used for the purpose of
political corruption and bribery by the very
man whose exchequer was so low. I saw there
was inconsistency, but patiently awaited
developments. It was a surprise to every one,
and I believe if the barrel had held out the
result would have been* still a greater sur
prise in store for the people, for I am sorry
to have to observe there is a large purchasa
ble vote in the State. Well, there was a great
hue and cry of fraud, and as usual "the fox
was the under." Now let any calm, un
prejudiced Democrat view the events of the
last fifteen menths and say truly if the Demo
cratic party had succeeded in seating its can
didates for State offices* would the country
have been as well off as It is? It is a fact that
BO Democrat ever can deny, that the State is
obviously and by a large majority in favor of
the .Eepublican party, and if the chicanery
practiced by the shrewd politicians of the
minority party had succeeded the reaction in
public sentiment would certainly have con
demned the methods fey which the success had
been accomplished, and the general dissatis
faction would have been so great as to serious
ly interfere with the harmonious workings of
the machine of State. On the other hand, any
one who has watched the present administra
tion as jealously as the writer will he forced to
the admission in all candor that it has been a
most excellent one* No living man is wholly
free from error, and 1 have several times
thought right I had found grounds for seriously
objecting to the policy pursued by the present
Governor, but in'every instance, after fully
awaiting all the developments in the case, I
have found that he has picked his way through
the devious and difficult paths with rare judg
ment and tact, and has displayed a knowledge
of the wants of the people notf often found in a
public man, while his eminent strength of
character and force of will have served him to
maintain his official dignity and personal
sense of justice and right where a weaker man
would have inevitably been swamped by un
THE TAX QUESTION.
The Clear Policy Pursued by the Repub
There is no issue between the par
ties as to-whether, taxeg shall be re
duced. The only issue is as to how
they shall be reduced. The Eepublie
an party can not be put in the attitude
of standing as an obstacle to the re
duction of taxes. If this charge can
be made with some degree of rea
son against any party, it can be
against the Democratic party. For
ten years that party has had control of
the House of Representatives, where
all revenue measures must originate,
and it hs not passed a single measure
of this character. During all this time
the Republicans have had a majority
of the House in only one Congress,
and they signalized their brief term by
creating the Tariff Commission and
passing the act of 1883 revising the
tariff and reducing the surplus.
The Republicans have since the war
repeatedly reduced the taxes. They
began immediately after the war
closed and as soon as the immediate
and commanding necessity was over,
and, they continued it at intervals as
fast as the exigencies of the public
needs would permit. So long as they
were in power they kept the surplus
within safe bounds. On the one
hand, the growth of the coun
try and the increased productive
ness of business served to swell
the revenue on the other, the
gradual extinguishment of debt and
the decrease of demands diminished
the necessary expenditure, and this
was constantly tending to increase the
surplus. But just as rapidly as the con
dition and requirements of the Treas-'
ury would allow the Republicans went
on redueing the taxes and curtailing
the revenue. Their last measure of
this character was passed in 1888, and
it was a broad revision of the tariff
which enlarged the free list, and re
duced duties to the extent of sixty mill
ions. From that time to this the
Democrats have controlled the House,
and while the surplus has been advanc
ing to a point which they pronounce
dangerous, they have not passed any
measure diminishing the taxes.
The Republicans stand to-day* as
they have stood at all times, in favor
of tax reduction. They present a dis
tinct and definite plan. They would
abolish or reduce the internal taxes,
and they are not opposed to a revision
of the tariff which shall correct any
inequalities and adjust rates to changed
conditions while preserving the pro
tective principle. Their policy is clear
and they can not be placed in a false
Why Public Office as Now Constituted
may Be Called a Private* Trust.
^In his letter of acceptance, dated
August 18, 1884, Grover Cleveland
"When an election to office shall'be

their number to assume/ for a time, a
public trust instead of" his dedication
to the profession of politics when the
holdei's of the ballot, quickened by a
sense of duty, shall avenge truth be
trayed and pledges broken, and when
the suffrage shall be altogether free
and uncorrupted, the full realization
of a government by the people will be
at hand and of the means to this end,
not one would, in my judgment, be
more effective than an amendment to
the Constitution "disqualifying the
President from re-election. When we
consider the patronage of this great
office, the allurements' of power, the
temptation to retain public place once
gained, and more than all, the avail
ability a party finds in an incumbent
whom a horde of office-holders, with a
zeal born of benefits received and fos
tered by the hope of favors yet to
come, stand ready to aid with money
and trained political service, we recog
nize in the eligibility of #ie President
for a re-election a most serious danger
to that calm, deliberate and intelligent
political action which must character
ize a government by the people."
The limit of credulity is very nearly
reached when it is, considered that the
language quoted above was written by
the present President less than four
years ago. Since his inauguration he,
has publicly recognized the existence
of but one paper in this country.
That comic journal bears for its motto
the quotation: "What fools these
mortals be." The inference is that he
imagines the ten million voters of the
country are to be counted in this cate
On ho other hypothesis can it be ac
counted for that he is a candidate for a
second term. Starting out with the
apothegm that a- public office is a
public trust," he can justly be consid

No "trust" established since
March 4, 1886, from the Standard Oil
to the sugar "combine," has been
manipulated more zealously in the
interests of its chief stockholder than
has the patronage at Washington.
"The allurements of power" were en
ticing and strong enough to impel Presi
dent Cleveland to begin scheming for a
renomination before he was fairly domi
ciled at the White House. His every
move has shown that it did not require
a horde of zealous office-holders to con
vince him that he was the chosen child,
of destiny. As the constitutional dis
ability he suggested had not been

existence as that" fittingly referred to,

more openly used in forwarding the
ambition of one man. From the re

A GOOD OPPORTUNITY.
West Virginia Almost Certain to Become
a Republican State.
The Republican outlook in one State
of the South is bright and inspiring.
We refer to West Virginia! Nearly
every county of that State has a Re
publican club, and from all reports
they are animated by the most vigor
ous and aggressive spirit. These
clubs were represented at the con
vention in session at Wheeling, called
for the purpose of organizing a State
League to operate in connection with
the National League of Republican
Clubs. Several hundred delegates
were present, and also a multitude of
enthusiastic members of these local or
ganizations throughout the State.
It is going none too far to say that
the situation justifies the lively hope
prevailing that the Democracy has tri
umphed for the last time in West Vir
ginia in a National contest Certainly

1888, are fringed with a deep shade of

the whole course of political events
in that State must make clear to every
observer the probability, amounting
almost to a oartainty, that under wise
leadership in the coming Presidential
campaign the Republican party will
redeem West Virginia.
Protection is there the strong ground
upon which the party must wage its
battle. It is the only, ground offering
a chance of victory. What is true of
West Virginia in this respect is true
also of Virginia, Tennessee and North
Carolina. These States can probably
be won by making a bold fight, on a
broad platform of to-day. Old preju
dices may remain, social and political
injustice may not have yet yielded to
enlightened self interest, but it is nev

Negro Thrift and Honesty.
Jacksonville (Fla.,) Times Union:
A. gentleman lately from .Tallahassee
mentions two very interesting facts as
Illustrating the present outlook for the
farmers of the "Black Belt," of which
that city is the centre. The first is,
that the crops of cotton the present
year have been considerably above the
average, The second is, that the ne
gro farmers, after selling their cotton
at good prices, are paying off rents to
owners of the land, and to the mer
chants the advance by which they were
assisted in making their cropsthese
debts "being secured by liens and,
with most exemplary honesty, are also
paying off old debtsthe accumulations
of yearsfor which there ^were no
liens or other security, instead of show
ing any disposition to spend the re
mainder, take it home with them, and
lay it by. He says he actually heard
as a matter of compliment by a very
wealthy Tallahassee merchant, who,
having given no credit, was collecting
no old debts, that the negroes were
buying little or nothing on the contra
ry, were hoarding their money. We
hear similar stories from the -negroes
In every part of the State. Those who
are industrious, economical, and pru
dent are almost invariably doing well.
They have built up innumerable com
fortable homes, and a good proportion
of them are accumulating property.
The most gratifying feature of this
thrift is the fact that the negroes are
keeping up their churches, educating
their children, and living in peace and
real friendship with the whites.
The British Barmaid.
A "typical London barmaid".uat
is, a young woman who serves drinks
in a man's restaurantis thus discribed
in abetter from the British, metropolis:
"She was slightly above medium hight
and very^plump. She filled a close-fitt
ing black dress nearly to the point of
bursting. Her face was round and clear
in its lines. Her complexion was nat
urally fair, and, if she had been content
with what nature had given her in the
way of a complexion, woidd have
looked very well. But she was not. The
red ajid white of the theatrical paint
box were laid on in thick stripes and
without the least pretense of disguise.
Her eyes were the intense dark-black
bead dolor so common among the
women of the servant class. Her feat
ures wei'e .regular, and when she
laughed, as she did at stated intervals,
she displayed snowy white teeth. Her
intensely black hair was curled tightly
around her very round head. She rep
presented the very sunniest of: barmaid
good nature and lively spirits. She
smiled upon the lame, the halt, .and
the blind with the same unction when
they came for an order as she did upon
the most resplendent of the gilded
youth. She laughed with unwearying
fortitude at jokes that were old, .weary,
and moss-grown when Caesar- invaded
Britiau with his Roman hosts."
Nasal Voices, Catarrh and False
A prominent English woman says the
American, women ail have high, shrill, nasal
voices and false teeth.
Americans don't like the constant twit
ting they set about this nasal twan#, and
yet it is a fact caused by our dry stimulat
ing atmosphere, ancLthe universal presence
of catarrhal difficulties.
But why should so many of our women
have false teeth?
4 That is more of a poser to the English. It
is quite impossible to account for it except
on the theory'of deranged stomach action
caused by imprudence in eating and by
want of regular exercise.
Both conditions are unnatural.
Catarrhal troubles everywhere prevail
and end in cough and consumption, which
are promoted by mal-nutrition induced by
deranged stomach action. The condition is
a modern one, one unknown to our ancestors
who prevented the catarrh, cold, cough and
consumption by abundant and regular use
of what is now known as Warner's Log
Cabin Cough and Consumption Remedy and
Log Cabin Sarsaparilla, two old fashioned
standard remedies handed down from our
ancestors, and now exclusively put forth
under the strongest guarantees of purity
and efficacy by the world-famed makers of
Warner's safe cure. T,hese two remedies
plentifully used as the spring and summer
seasons advance give a positive assurance
of freedom, both from catarrh and those
dreadful and, if neglected, inevitable conse
quences, pneumonia, lung troubles and con
sumption, which so generally and fatally
prevad among our people.
Comrade EU Fisher, of Salem, Henry Co.,
.Iowa, served four years in the late war and
contracted a disease called consumption by
the doctors. He had frequent hemorrhages.
After using Warner's Log Cabin Cough and
Consumption remedy, he says, under date
of Jan. 19th, 1888: "I do not bleed at the
lungs any more, my cough does not bother
me, and 1 do not have any more smothering
spells." Warner's Log Cabin Rose Cream
cured his wife of catarrh and she is sound
Of course we do not like to have our

overcome in the manner indicated.*
