The Republican Senatorial com
mittee for this district have got
things badly mixed. Instead of
coming together and agreeing upon
the time and place for holding the
convention, a part of the committee
called a convention to be held at
Sleepy Eye, and the other members
of the committee, not knowing of the
first call, have issued a call for a
convention to be held at Marshall.
Both are called for next Tuesday,
October 15th. What the result of
this doable call will be we cannot
fcretell as the time is short and the
blunder can not well be remedied.
The Redwood and Brown county
delegates will no doubt attend the
Sleepy Ey convention and the oth
ers the Marshall convention. Th
calls also differ in one or two instan

Hon. C. Tyler, one of the com

call, has requested us to say that the
convention will be held*at Marshall,
Tuesday, Oct. 15th, at 4 p. m., and
not at Sleepy Eye. This action will
hafmouize matters and prevent the
nomination of two candidates.

A GENERAL INDIAN WAR
Information reached army head
quarters in St Paul last Saturday
evening that the Sioux Indians of
the Red Cloud and Spotted Tail
agencies had all left their reserva
tions and are moving west directlv
toward the Black Hills. Th Re
Clouds deserted their agency two
days before, and are probably a hun
dred miles in advance of the Spotted
Tails. It is the Opinion of those best
acquainted with the customs of the
tribes that they will come together
in a few days and will be joined
by the Chevennes, who have crossed
the railroad and are moving north.
There is a strong apprehension in
the minds of officers of the depart
ment of Dakota that this is
a preconcerted movement, and that
it signifies a general war.
It is many years since the Red
Clouds and Spotted Tails have shown
any signs of belligerency, and here
in the worst is feared, even to the
belief that the contest may assume
such proportions as to require the
services of the entire army to deal
with it. Th Black Hills, which
appears to be their objective point,
is only guarded by four companies,
who are at the post recently estab
lished there hence, if the Indian
force is as large as is feared, the Hills

HENRY PEHLER WAR RECORD.
He Helps Resist the Boun ty Tax,
and Then Extorts Rlood-ldoney
from the Soldiers and
Special Correspondence to St Paul Dispatch.
HENDERSON, Minn. Oct., 2'78.
Just now when certain newspa
pers are lauding the democratic can
didate in the Second Congressional
district to the skies and putting their
man before the peopleespecially
the Germansas entirely spotless
and lovely to behold, would it not be
well to lift the curtains of the past
and scrutinize some of the acts of
this modern Solon
Firstly. "When war waged its
wide desolation, and threatened our
land to deform," your brave Henry
was in bad tribulation and turned
tail and fled from the storm' Have
the people of his own county and im
mediate neighborhood forgotten the
memorable first war meetings, where
old Whitlock, in an enthusiastic
speech, fired the hearts of the boys
up to the enlisting point, and our
Henry among the lot. just to encour
age the boys, said: I am going
we're all going." Did he go Echo
answers No! Coward!
Secondly. When the commis
sioners of Sibley county tried their
very best, after the war to repudiate
the resolution of the same body in
1862, giving a bounty of $100 to
every man enlisting for three years,
and when the records of that board,
together with everything else, were
"accidentally burned," where was
the voice of Henry Poehler Loud
and boisterous were his protestations
against this bounty act "the county
will never be able to pay it, said
he "w will be taxed to death if we
have to pay this county bounty. W
can't do it. W will not do it!"
Thirdly. When the county was
compelled to pay itthanks to a
just judgeand county orders were
issued to each of these veterans and
heroesyes, and to their widows
amounting to about $110 each, to
what figure didHenryPoehler squeeze
down these county orders, because
there was "no money in the treasury
it is an infernal outrage on the
county that we have to pay it, and
more of such deprecatory talk?to
just about $75 or $80
What did Henry do with the rest
of this blood money stolenvirtual
ly stolenfrom the widows and or
phans of some of the same men that
were going in 1862, because they
believed Henry was going too
W could prolong this list of in
torogations ad infinitum, but the
good people in his imraidiate vicini
ty certainly recollect many more of
Henry's grasping and rasping pro
pensities, which stamp him in the
eyes of every fair-minded voter as a
veritable money shark yes, Shy lock
of old could with some show of jus
tice occupy a seat among the right
eous, if Henry was only naif as spot
less as some of his blatant organs
would have us to believe.
The Dispatch then editorially says:
W print to-day, in a letter from a
well-known and reliable correspond
ent at Henderson, a few leaves from
the war record of Henry Poehler,
Democratic candidate for Congress
in the Second district. W iiave
every reason to believe, and do be
lieve the allegations in this letter are
that Henry Poehler, after inducing
others to enlist, by promising to do
so, with, cowardly treachery refused
to go himself that he resisted the
offer of bounties that he joined in
an effort to resist the payment of the
bounties pledged and that, failing
in both efforts, he basely speculated
on the necessities of the soldiers' de
pendants, by discounting their or
ders to the lowest notch,robbing,
stealing the blood-earned reward of
the valor and patriotism of the de
fenders of the Union. pj
If these charges are true, as we
believe they are, Henry Poehler is
not a fit man to send to Congress.
The man who failed in any patriotic
duty to his country during the hours
of her mortal peril, cannot be safely
trusted to serve her in times of pros
perity. Th man who robbed sol
diers' widows in 1864 is folly equipp
ed for any deed of political corrup
tion in 1879. Above all, the honors
1 "*P ,S"-V-
and rewards of a grateful nation
should be reserved for the men who
defended itnot for the men who
stabed it in the back. While this
man Poehler was dodging the draft
and shaving bounty orders, Horace
B. Strait was bravely fighting in the
ranks of the soldiers of the Union

ENGLANDS WAR IN ASIA.
A London dispatch from Bombay
says troops have been ordered to ad

of a powerful southern chief is also
reported. The ameer has asked trib
al councils for assistance. I is be
lieved that tribes mustering one
hundred and fifty thousand fighting
men have assented. The other tribes,
with about 35,000 warriors, remain
neutral. Th ameer has freed from

SLEE PY EYE, OCT. 3d, 1878.
Facts About Resumption.
Last week we stated some facts
about the greenbacks and now we will
invite attention to a few facts about
1. The nation is pledged for it and
has been for yeais, ever since, in fact*
1869. At that time "the faith of the
United States was solemnly pledged to.
make provisions at the earliest practi
cable period foi the redemption of the
United States notes in coin"Revised
Stat, of the S. p. 735. It was in
view of this that the January act of
1875 provided for resumption on Janu
ary 1st, 1879.
2 The nation is and has been, work
ing towards the fulfillment of its obli
gation. It is bound to do this in order
to maintain its character for honesty
and its self-respect. Every obstacle
that is put in the way to defeat the
national pledge bears a dishonest mark^
3. But before we state any further
fact about resumption let us carefully
note what resumption means. Re
sumption does not mean (1) contraction
of the currency.Many seem to think soj.
but it Is a great mistake. The contrac
tion of the currency is im no wise in
volved in the act of lesumption. Sup.
pose two million dollars in greenback
notes are taken up by the government
and actually destroyed the two mil
lion dollars in coin necessary for their
redemption, and not now in circula
tion, will be added to the volume of
currency and there will be no domina
tion or contraction. Bu resumption
does not mean (2) the destruction of
the whole volume of greenbacks. Th
government is required bylaw to main
tain $340,000,000 of greenbacks and
that, too, at par with coin, and to bo
kept so after resumption. Resumption,
does not mean (3) that greenbacks to
any amount must be exchanged for
com. This is a false and pemieious
view of the matter.
What then does resumption mean?
Simply this: resumption means that
when the holder of a greenback desires
to exchange it for com he can do so
and receive for it one square dollar.
But if any man prefers to use a note as
money instead of the coin he may re
ceive for it, lie can do so and no man*
or law will compel him to make an ex
change. Resumption means that the
greenback shall not be shared. Unlesa
the total amount of currency exceeds
the demands of business propably but
very little will be passed in for redemp- 4
tion. Resumption means that the
whole volume of gold and silver coin
shall be added to the currency of the
country. Gold and silver will not be
bought and sold then chiefly as a com
modity but will be used as money*,
pure and simple. Resumption then
don't mean '"the day of doom" asaeer*.
tain orator would have us believe.
