union of the church paramount to
the passage of those resolutions, why
not call the whole assembly a copper
head and disloyal assembly because
the majority voted the same as Judge
Wilder did. So much for these char
ges, the same as all other charges
made against the Judge since his
nomination. And now about the sup
position of what Judge would do if
elected to congress. It I thought that
he would vote with the South and aid
them in getting their war claims paid,
&c, which he says he will not, I would
not vote for him. If, on the other
hand, I thought as I do think that he
will go and work for the interests of
his constituents, which he says he
will do, I can vote for him and not be
a&hamed of it afterwards.
While outside of his political course I
respect Major Strait very highly, yet
there are some reasons why faults are
found with his civil service reform
ideas. That he expressed himself in
favor of reform to you, in order to get
your support, cannot be doubted, but
that he does not follow the rules laid
down by Govenor Hayes, has been
proved by the course pursued by him
before and since his last nomination.
Out side of this, I think Major Strait
is a gentleman, and that worse men
than he have been sent to congress
from Minnesota. 3 MB P^^^HS
These are my sincere political'views,
Mr. Editor, and if I am wrong I am
willing to be corrected, if my errors
can be proved. If not I hope you will
let me stand approved.
C. A. ERICKS ON.
A to Mr Erickson
All of which simply proves that Mr. Erickson'e
partiality for Judge Wilder induces him |to criti
cise too severely the conduct of Major Strait. It
is uniortnnate for the latter that his competitor
is a gentleman whose habits of life have saved
him from criticisms of his conduct AS the record
of his life was being made, Mr. Strait, on the
contrary, has been constantly subjected to criti
cisms of the most searching character. Tet not
withstanding this difference in their respective
positions, nothing material is now charged against
Mr. Strait. But as to whether Judge Wilder or
Major Strait is the better man, we are measura
bly indifferent. That is not the question in this
inrass, but the real issue is: Shatl we contribute
to transferring this government into the keeping
of August Belmont and his satellites, who control
and shape the policy of the democratic party?
Certainly no consistent republican ought to do
Letter from Herbert.
RED WING, October 30th, 1876.
Mr. JUL Young:
DKAK SIB, Under the practice public dis
ension* of the present day, the disputant open
ing has the right of reply, and for this reason I
wish the privilege of saying a few words in reply
to your answer.
You say that being charged with an offence does
not prove the man guilty. I said that the charges
against Major Strait were made by his own party
papers, by parties best informed in the premises,
and the charges were made in a manner to amount
to direct testimony by the most competent wit
ne»»e*, and the payers making ihe charges, as
facts within their Knowledge, bave never taken
them back and tbey have not been contradicted
and. therefore, Major is proved guilty.
E\erv charge brought against Jud Wilder has
been promptly met and retuted. In your argu
ment »vith regard to the character of Judge Wil
der, on misconceive his nature and life, when
you speak of him as of retiring disposition unfit
ted to mingle with and influence men. Judge Wil.
der's life has been such as to bring him in con
stant contact with men of all clas»es, and cause
him to closely observe and stndy human nature.
His practice has been almost wholly before juries
in the District Court, with opposition attorneys
watchim: e\ery word, ready to take advantage of
the least slip. A man who can command the at
tention and move the judgments of petit juries,
as can Judge Wilder, would wield no small influ
ence in the'halls of congress.
Mr. Strait has never been in a position to under
stand or sympathize with men, his life as a banker,
taking seven per cent, from the government and
twelve per cent, from his customers, has had a
tendency to make him avaricious, and he desires
to get into congress for the money he can make
out of it, and to keep in existence the objectiona
ble feature of the Natonal Bank system, which
you have so heartily condemned, and in hicli he
is so directly interested.
Judge Wilder, on the contrary, has ahvajs been
a lawyer of the people and for the people, and op
posed to monopolies, and monied torpcratioi
and the poorest litigant, the widow and the
orphan, has always obtained his seivices as readi
ly ii. the iwwt wvjilthv.
Hispradic liu* iWmglit him I.K! to face with
the people, and inad- liim uiid*r^t:iiit their wants,
their leelinir- aiirt their trial* No man tiiidei*
stand* better in HI he how to meet and deieat the
opposer* ol the ople and the infrtiuers M1 their
You say that -lie li men ax Judge Wilder are '"the
salt thut scjisom-th MICICM,'" and ihinKets "who
direct thought into t* propci ilianncls." and in
this )ou are right, and I know ol no place that
needs "salt'" voise than does congress, and thex
certainly need some one there to direct thought
into-ome other channel than the keeping alhe
the dead issues of the war and the stirring up of
partisan bittei ne«&
You know that Geo. Washington warned this
nation in his Farewell Address, that one oi the
greatest dangers to the liberties of the people was
this miserable patty strile, and it seems some
times that the only object of professional poli
ticians is to set the people at war again and upset
our free institutions.
Judge Wilder is not that kind ol a man. If he
goes to Washington he will represent the whole
people and not a taction.
The Judge i» 1101 too dignified to meet with and
handle, but he t« too dignified to sell his country
for the adtancement of hi* own interests or the
gratification ol his own ambition. No man in our
midsi has done more ior the cause of common
schools, for the building up ol churches ot all
sects, and no man is worthy of greater praise for
his charities and his kinuly deeds.
You misunderstand me when you say that I sup
port Judge Wilder simply because tie is my
friend, and am bitter toward Major Strait because
he is the opponent of my friend. I support the
Judge oecause 1 know him to be eminently fit
lor ihe position, and I oppose Major Strait be
cause I know him to be unfit for the place.
Yours respectfully, B. B. HERBERT.
Rejoinder to Mr. Herbert.
Mr. Herbert has introduced above considerable
new matter, springing issues not included in his
original argument, and under the rules governing
debates he had no right to do this. We have only
time now to notice briefly one or two points. He
insists that assertions aga'nst Major Strait, made
by republican papers, are proors. Why, then,
are not assertions made against Judge Wilder, by
republican papers equally positive proofs against
him. If these witnesses are competent to estab
lish aught against one of these gentlemen, so are
they competent as against the other. Mr. Her
bert must not forget that when they spoke
against Major Strait, they were opposing his nom
ination, henee their statements cannot be re
garded as admissions »j his friends for such is
not the case. Mr. Strait is a banker, but Judge
Wilder, if he is not misrepresented by his iriends,
is a "hard money" man, which amounts to the
same thing. Our deductions as to Judge Wilder's
dispositions are drawn from his letter of accept
ance and statements made by his friends, and Mr.
Herbert is mistaken if he supposes the practice of
law fit? a man pieeminently for political wrang
ling in congress. As we said before, Mr. Herbert
is partial to his iriend and, we think, unjust to
ward that friendv competitor in this canvass.
