F. R. E. CORNELL,
MARK II, DUNNELL
Of Steele County.
The Republicans of the Second Dis
trict have renominated Major Strait
for Congress and the Third' Distiict
nominated W. S. King, the noted Min
neapolis stock grower.
The. new Constitution iu Ohio was
rejected by a majority of 147,284. The
majority against granting license to
sell liquor was |,286, showing that a ma
jority of the people are still sound upon
the license question.
"Whenever the Republican party is in
jeopardy, the Democracy are given over
to some foolish and violent things
which destroy their prospect of success.
They gained a little triumph last fall
in Ohio, and now they proclaim that the
5-20s must bo paid in greenbacks, an is
sue which has defeated them often be
fore. So the prospect of a Democratic
success has so elated the desperate el
ement in the South that they are re
newing their slaughter of the blacks.—
They will be sure to show their bloody
hands in time to secure another Repub
Judge Waite has sent his resignation
to the Governor. The Pioneer over
flows in manner thus:
This act in Juilge Waite is so strange,
so out of the common order of things
in these degeneiate times, and withal
so honoiable to himself and the leg.vl
profession, that we confess to a feeling
of astonishment, mingled with admi
ration and pride, at the delicate sensi
bility which inspiied its peifoimance.
This little gush of "admiiatlon and
pride" at the Judge's "delicate sensi
bility" can all be spoiled by one little
fact. The law requhes that the Judge
should resign bcfoie the vote for him,
as a candidate for Congress, can be
counted. A few weeks either way
would make no difference. The Judge
has only done what the law required.
Old Billy Allen, the Democratic Gov
ernor of Ohio, when he addressed the
soldiers at Dayton, recounted the suf
fei ings and gloi ies of the Mexican war.
In his more recent addiess at Cincin
nati, ha related some incidents of the
wais of the ancient Romans, in whose
affairs he seems to have taken an active
part. lie was still alive in the days of
Polk, but was buued about that time.
By some freak of Nature and the Ohio
Demociacy he was taken out of his
vault and made Governor of Ohio,
last fall. He seems to be unacquainted
with the fact that there was a rebellion
and a gi eat war in the last decade. He
is now spoken of for Piesident, but if
Ave must have a corpse for President,

THE STATE FAIR,
The Fair of the piesent year was
probably the best one evei held in the
State. The s»how ol hoiscs, fowls and
vegetables was especially good. The
contest on vegetables seems to have
been between Itasca and Nobles coun
ties, and tie decision was to have been
made yestei day.
At the Republican State Convention
which was held at Minneapolis Wed
nesday, Hon. S. J. R. McMillen was
nominated for Chief Justice of the Su

Associato Justice. Peifect haimony

A gentleman who spent considerable
time at Washington duung 'the last
session of Con gi ess, and who lecently
returned to Worthmgton, says oui
member, Mr. Dunncll, was always at
his place, ahvajs voting promptly, al

something for his constituents. This
is the general testimony. /There is ab

We invite attention to the extracts
from Southern papers and correspon
dents given eliewhere, showing that
the E Klux are again at their bloody
work assassinating both white and
colored Republicans. There have been
600 politlcal murdertf in Texas alone:—
The cry is "white men must rule", and
"down with the negroes and carpet
baggers." Of course this state of
tilings will not be changed by the State
and local authorities. There is no
hope save in the General Government,
•n the sooner the power of the Feder
al authority is felt the better. No
doubt -there- arr still '-men who talk
about "shaking hands over, the bl'nxJy
chasm," and the "era of good feeling"
and all that, but the Southern rebel
shakes hands with one hand and stabs
the Northern man to the heart with
the other. Put the Democratic party
in power and in one year the blacks
will be either deprived of citizenship or
put to the sword and exterminated.
We hope there is no- Republican in
Nobles county who will by his vote say
that he wants Judge Waite to go to
Congress where he will strike hands
with Southern men and vote with them
to undo the work of reconstruction and
deprive the blacks of citizenship. For
this is just what will be done, no mat

The Committe appointed by the Sen
ate last winter to investigate the ac
counts of the late State Auditor.Charles
Mcllrath, and the ex-Treasurer, have
submitted their lepoit. They make
some astounding disclosures, showing
that the School fund of the State has
been robbed of $100,000, by collusion
with the lumbermen.
Mr. Mcllrath telegraphs from New
York as folloAvs:
N E W YORK, Sept. 5,1874.
Observing in the newspapers a charge
of alleged defalcation on my part
while Auditor of the State of Minneso
ta, purpoiting to be the substance of a
lepoit of a committee appointed by the
last legislature, I have to request a sus
pension of public opinion until I can
have an oppoitunity to refute the false
and malicious chaiges thus made
against me. The committee in question
has acted entirely ex parte, holding se
ciet sessions, and giving me no oppor
tunity to cioss-examine witnesses or
explain my official transactions. Its
duty was to lepoit to the next legisla
tuie and not before, and its present le
poit is wholly unauthonzed, and is
made thus prematurely for political ef
fect. I need only say that at tl\e piop
er time I shall be piepared to verify my
accounts, vindicate my character, and
show the utter falsity of every mateii
al statement and conclusion to my pi ej
udiceputfoithby the committee. To
those who know me at my place of res
idence, and know the circumstances
connected with the appointment of this
committee and the character of its pro
ceedings, it would not be necessaiy to
make even this explanation.
Late Auditor State of Minnesota.
A piomincnt citizen of S\ Paul, who
comes to the lescUG of Mr. Mclhath,
I am reminded of my experience as
foieman of a giand jiuy in this countv
about 1858, aftei the panic and during
the hai times. The jail had been built
the year befoie, and cost enormously,
and there were complaints against the
supeiintendent and complaints against
the register of deeds and manv otheis.
We heard the statements under oath of
a large number of witnesses, and in
dicted the Register of Deeds, Supeiin
tendent of Buildings and otheis, all
this ex parte, but on evidence that seem
ed conclusive of the corrniit conduct of
these paities. When they weiebiought
into open couit and had the benefit of
counsel, and a chance to cross qnestion
witnesses and bring lebutting evidence,
eveiy indictment failed and justly. I
then saw how unreliable ex parte evi
dence and investigations weie.
The principal member of the Com
mittee is an enfiny of Mclhath, and
there seems no doubt that the report is
unjust. Its publication at this paitic
ular time could have no other object
than to injuie Mclhath and the Repub
lican paity. As a wi iter in the Press
suggests, theie ought to be some con
stitutional way of pieventing'these ie
poits condemning and thus foievcr in

The Ku Klux Bevived—Assassination
and Murder^Bampant—WO Political
Murders in Texas.
Two wholesale slaughters of negroes
and white Republicans occurred recent
ly in the South, one in Tennessee and'
one in Louisiana. The Ku Klux are
again on the war path, or rather the
assassination path, and scores of inno
cent negroes, school teachers and
Northern men are falling! throughout
The Chairman of the Republican
State Central Committee of Texas,
who is in Washington, states that there
have been 600 political' murders com
mitted in Texas since the inauguration
of Gov. Coke. The Governors of sev
eral of the Southern States have ad
dressed letteis to the Piesident within
the last few days upon the subject of
these outrages. It is not impossible
that, as a precautionary measure
against outbreaks, some of the troops
which for sanitary purposes are now en
camped at Camp Olive and elsewhere,
may be sent to their regular posts in
the South earlier than the usual time,
which is in November

indulges in talk of this kind:
We must act speedily and decidedly,
no matter what it costs. Bettei lose

suggest to our brethren the formation
of white leagues in eveiy civil distiict,
in every county in the State. Let them
meet in secret and be bound by *,he
most solemn oaths, and let death be the
penalty of any violations of the order.
Already, we have good reason to Le

Can ou foi get that, but a few shoit
years ago, it was as much as his life
was woith foi a man of "Noithein
sentiment" to express his \iews on
Southern soil? To-day the South is
loused to white heat because a Noi th

show that the victim had not violated
the lights of a white man.
Two obstacles stand in the way of a

the Republican pi ess of the countiy.
