F. W. JOHNSON, Editor and Pro]
Wednesday, September 28,1892.
Sometime ago a man by the name
of Michael Doran addressed a letter
to Maj. McKinley which has since ap
peared in nearly every Democratic paper
under the heading of "A nut for McKin
ley to crack." The letter was as follows:
Dear Sir: —I read your speeches in the
house of representatives during the Fifty
first congress when the tariff bill was
under diseussion in which you asserted
and made me believe that the foreigners
paid our taxes. I also read your speech
as presiding officer of the Republican
national convention at Minneapolis, in
which vou asserted again that the for
eigner paid our taxes. My mother sent
me a dozen pair of socks from Ireland a
few days ago, each pair being worth
about twenty cents. My cousin, who
brought them to me, had to pay twenty
five cents a pair tariff duties on the socks
at the New York custom house. Will
you please be kind enough to tell me
to what-f oreign government I shall ap
ply to Have that three dollars refunded
to me? If the foreigner pays the tax,
as you say he does, I am entitled to get
my money back, but I do not know just
exactly to what foreign government to
apply and I hope you will be kind
enough to inform me by return mail.
To^the above epistle Telephone Pol
son of Stillwater has penned the follow
Mester MckKinneii Ay rede that let
ter som that Mayk Doran rayt yu bout
hims socks. He aer bigger dam fool en
vi hev in whole Stillwater en vi hev

Four years ago, the Democrats de
clared for protection to American indus
tries while this year they declare their
former principles to be fraudulent and
unconstitutional. Is there any sense in
trusting such men?
Why don't Mr. Baker of the Globe
prove his accusations against Mr. Pills
bury and collect the $10,000? He would
then be spared the trouble of burdening
his columns with the "Help us along"
plea for Democratic campaign funds.

E. St. Julien Uox it had better give up
the ghost. If Cox is elected, it will be
cause he is a good campaigner and not
because he deserves to be or because his
past record recommends him.

cating Republicans in every robbery and

Mr. Pillsbury cooly and in a gentlemanly
manner offers $10,000 to th3 Democra

are proven, Mr. Baker quietly burns the

tween the Republican platform and the
Democratic platform is in the tariff,that

for the principles of my party," when he
would not know a principle if he were
to meet it in the middle of The road. If

Why don't the Democratic orators tell
you why their platform contains such an
outrageous feature as that demanding
the repeal of the 10 per cent tax on state
banks? They know that it would mean
a return to the rocky period in our his
tory when state banks flourished to the
detriment of business and the great ad
vantage of the individual owners, and
they know that the people will not
countenance such a step backward.
Nevertheless the clause is there and it
was placed there by the Southern wing
of the Democratic party as represented in
Chicago. ,, .-.***

Sleepy Eye, Sept. 28th: A Mr. Blake
ly of Eochester, this state, said to be one
of the democratic campaign orators, ad
dressed a crowd of some 35 or 40 at the
hall on last Friday evening. The audi
ence was made up of a few democrats
(mostly from New Ulm), fewer pops.,
and a considerable number of republi
cans and boys. The speaker's jugglery
with, and regard for, figures may be il
lustrated by the following: In speaking
to the farmers (of whom there were a few
present) of the improvements made in
agricultural machinery and the conse
quent effect on prices etc., lie said, that

speaker's, not the sickle's) father used to
cut 4 or 5 acres of grain a day but la
ter, when the cradle was invented, 24 or
25 acres of grain a day became nothing
uncommon. The honorable gentleman
evidently does his farming by proxy,'and
reminds us strongly of the city candidate
who, in his rural speeches, wishing to
make a favorable impression, portrayed
the farmer as one who

of last week from what is said to have
been membraneous croup as the result of
diphtheria. There was delay in posting
the customary quarantine notice, and a
great number of sympathizing friends vi

dread disease through ignorance of its
presence. The story is now going the
rounds that the physician in attendance
pronounced the ease diphtheria, but ad
