Watch For Frauds.
Suppress Your Spurious Tickets!
Some Twenty or more Thousand
Election Tickets, headed "Repubh
can Ticket," but having Judge E
Wildefs name, instead of Major H.
Strait's, upon them, have been
printed for use in this county. The
only object for getting these up is:
that those who will not choose to
vote for the Judge, may be deceived
into doing so, by means of these
tickets. Such as do not read Eng-
lish, or are unsuspecting or inatten-
tive, are to be victimised by this
trick —their right of franchise is to
be turned against them, and they-
are to be outraged in the exercise of
their most sacred privilege of citi-
The use of these tickets is as
great a moral wrong as ballot-box
stuffing. It is seeking to carry the
election BY FRAUD' E TICKETS
BEAR A I E UPON THEIR FACE. N
MAN WHO USES THEM, OR WHO AC-
CEPTS ADVANTAGES GAINED BY THEIR
USE, CAN BE STRICTLY O N E S It
is no excuse to plead that this is a
common practice in elections, for
the general prevalence of wrong
does not justify its commission, as
we all very well know!
Judge Wilder is now away from
home and does not probably know
of or suspect the perpetration of this
outrage in his behalf and, sincerely
desiring that lie may pass through the
canvass with his honorable reputation
untarnished, we demand the suppres
sion of these tickets and that the fraud
shall not be persisted in.
We do not believe that he will accept
an office won by such disreputable
means, for a hundred seats in congress
cannot repay him for the befouling of
his escutcheon by such ignominious
conduct. He certainly will condemn
the act, or else he does not deserve the
enviable reputation he enjoys.
A correspondent enquires why
we have not denied the charge that
Gen. Hayes is a member of the
"American Alliance Our an.
swer is: that any man who is so fool
ish as to believe and be influenced
by that story, is too foolish to be
pursuaded by anything we can say.
The absurdity of the falsehood is
too palpable for its serious consider
Hon. H. B. Strait.
This gentleman, having been the
congressional representative for
three years, is again the republican
candidate. Ordinarily, men who
have been so long in public life have
made some mistakes which their
political enemies have at hand to
charge against them when they come
up for re-election but Mr. Strait is
singularly clear of any record that
can be used to his detriment.
In the absence of anything to say
against him, his enemies have resort
ed to abusing him because he has
not made a record with which thoy
could find fault. This is all there
is about the charge that he has done
nothing. has really done, well
and promptly, whatever there was
for him to do for the promotion of
the interests of his constituents and
we cannot see how anybody else
could have done more.
Since the canvass opened we have
asked his opponents to allege
against him something positive, but
the only replies have been general de
traction and abuse. They have con
tented themselves with this and we
have had nothing to reply to. If Major
Strait has been guilty of wrong, the
people should be told of it plainly, for
he is a public officer and his acts are
proper subjects of criticism.
In the absence of any material fault
being found with him, is it not some
what impertinent for republicans to be
asked now to throw him overboard
And for what? Why, either that
Judge Wilder may be honored, or that
Mr. Thacber's failure to obtain the
nomination may be avenged This is
all there is to it. We would delight to
do honor to Judge Wilder, and were he
the republican candidate, he would re
ceive our earnest support, but it is cer
tainly not right for republicans to set
aside an unobjectionable gentleman,
nominated by their own party, in order
to aid in electing the candidate of the
And as for avenging the indignity
put upon Mr. Thacher, we don't know
that he suffered any, for the convention
had aright to nominate whom it pleased
The assertion that Mr. Strait's nomina
tion was procured by the federal office
holders of the district, in sheer non
sense, for the reason that these office
holders are too few to accomplish that
result, unless the people were willing
that it should be accomplished. To say
that the few office-holders in this dis
trict can control the republican conven
tions is simply to insult the masses of
the republican party.
ff believe with Senator New
ton Booth, of California, that "the
wiping out of existence of the demo
cratic organization is essential to
the safety of our republican institu
tions," and it is this conviction
which prompts us to oppose the
election of Judge Wilder. His suc
cess will do more to prolong the
existence of that party, than would
that of fifty such men as it generally
puts in nomination, because his re.
cord would aid its corrupt leaders
in regaining the confidence of the
people, and thus enable them to at
tain to official positions in the future.
And it has not been shown that Maj
or Strait is not worthy, so intelli
gent republicans cannot excuse them,
selves for the suicidal act of voting
for a democratic nominee.
IN UNION STRENGTH—IN KNOWLEDGE POWER.
—These are the amendments to the
State constitution to be voted upon
next Tuesday: Amendment to section
11 of Article 4.
"If any bill presented to the govern
or contain *everal items of appropria
tion of money, he nvy object to one or
more uf such items, while approving of
the other portion ot the bill. In Mieh
case be h.ill ppe.nl to the bill at the
time of signing it, .i statement of the
items to which he objects: .ind the ap
propriation so objected to shall not take
effect. If t'if legislature be in session,
he shall trd'emit to th ho ie in which
the bill originated a py of such state
ment, and the items objected to shall
be separately reconsidered. If, on
reconsideration, one or more of such
items be approved by two-thirds of the
members elected to each house, the
same shall he a part of the law, not
withstanding the objections of the gov
ernor. All the provisions of trns sec
tion, in relation to bills not appi-)ved by
the governor, shall apply to cases in
which he shall withhold his approval
from any item or items containe-i in a
bill appropriating money."
We shall vote for this. Amendment
to section 3 of Article 1.
"That there be added at the en1 of
section 3, article 0, the following words,
viz: Whenever all or a majority of the
judges of the supreme court shall from
any cause be disqualified from sitting
in any case in said court, the governor,
or, if he shall be interested in the re
sult of such case, then the lieutenant
governor, shall assign judge- ot the dis
trict court of the State, who shall sit in
such case, in place of such disqualified
judges, with all the powers and duties
of judges of the supreme court."
This, also, shall have our vote*
Amendment to section three of article
That section 3 of article 10, of the
constitution be amended so as to read
"Section 3. Each stockholder in any
corporation shall be liable onlv for all
unpaid installments on stock owned by
him, or transferred for the purpose of
This has our approval, likewise, for
in our opinion it expresses precisely
what was intended by the original
clause in the constitution prior to its
first bungling amending.
—Those opponents of Major Strait
who hold him responsible for all the
abusive articles against Judge Wilder
that have been published and all the
tricks which they claim have been resor
ted to by his friends, would hardly
deem it fair for us to hold Judge Wilder
responsible for the printing of spurious
republican tickets, with his name sub
stituted for that of Major Strait's?
Well, we do not believe that Major
Strait is a party to or even cognizant of
any unfairness practiced by his parti
sans nor can we, Buspect that of Judge
Wilder would countenance the use of
unfair means to secure his election
—Just so long as the democratic
party maintains its organization, just
that long will its ranks be filled by
malcontents, who have been aggrieved
by the policy pursued by the govern
ment since it came under the control of
the republican party. Do the republi
can voters of this country desire to
sacrifice their party for the benefit of
of such fault-finders If not then vote
for your own candidates without excep
—In our opinion, Gov. Hayes is not
only a very worthy and estimable gen
tleman, but one eminently fitted to fill
the high position for which he is nomin
ated. He will certainly pursue the line
of conduct which is indicated in his
letter of acceptance and no influence
will induce him to swerve therefrom.
He will be truly the President of all the
States, and be entirely just and impar
tial in administering the government.
"HELEN'S BABIES," at Roseboom &
RED WING, MINN., WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER I, 1876.
—Take notice, that not one sin
gle distinct accusation ha* yet been
brought against Major Strait, im
peaching his integrity or denying his
usefulness. Why, then, should re
publicans set him aside in order to
honor Judge Wilder Remember,
that it is not only the election of
Judge Wilder which the democratic
leaders seek to accomplish, but the
reinstatement in power of their par
ty. If they are permitted to elect
Judge Wilder now, in two years
hence they will be encouraged to
put in nomination one of the supple
tools which they have always at
hand for the performance of their
corrupt schemes. And what a strong
card it will be in their favor to refer
to the honorable record which Judge
Wilder will make, if he makes any.
—It is said that Jefferson Davis
has written a letter to a friend in
Washington city, advocating the
election of Mr. Tilden. Why should
n't he Tilden supportee him and
the cause he was enlisted in a few
years ago, and why shouldn't Mr.
Davis return the compliment now
—In our minds there is not the slight
est doubt the Mr. Samuel J. Tilden is
the least deserving man ever nominated
for the presidency that he is a mean
corrupt and intriguing politician, that
be was a party to and an abettor of the
election frauds in New York city that
he was an accomplice of Tweed, Con
nolly, at al that he really befriended
Tweed while falsely pretendingtg pros
ecute him and that he "winked at" his
escape. We believe that his election
will be a national disgrace. And we
have arrived at these conclusions from
a careful study of his conduct, not has
tily nor because of any prejudice.
—It it said that Major Strait's ene
mies purpose to bring a serious charge
against him this week, when it will be
too late to refute it before election.
Well let them do so. In the minds of in
telligent people such an act will only be
regarded as treacherous and cowardly,
and the people generally are sufficiently
intelligent to appreciate it properly.
—Tilden'8 democratic reformers are
at work. Two of them have just been
arrested in Philadelphia, with fifty
thousand Tax receipts to be used to
enable "repeaters" on election day.
Such is democratic reform.
