THE ISSUE PRESENTED TO-DAY.
The people of Minneapolis will decide to
day whether the city government is to be
placed in the bauds of the aristocracy or con
ducted in the interests of the masses. That
is the issue in a nutshell.
Mr. Pillsbury represents the kid glove ele
ment, the hypocritical saints, the men
who put "jobs" through to enrich them
selves at the expenses of the tax-payers, the
LiH-ii w.j<> sham hon< Bty, .sham religion and
sham everything that is good.
Mr. Ames is not a saint but be is not a
hypocrite. He lias never been a party to
any "job" and he never will be. In his posi
tion as mayor he Las never sought in the
slightest degree, to enrich himself. lie is
one of the people and represents the
people. He very properly feels that the
poorest ;;nii humblest citizen is as much en
titled to recognition and protection of the
laws asthe wealthiest and highest in position.
He is ii'i respecter of persons, and because
the kid glove aristocracy have found him of
unswerving integrity, and a man whom they
cannot use, they have resolved to slaughter
Who that was sick or hungered ever went
to the whole souled, big hearted Dr. Ames
und received a rebuff)
The war which has been waged upon
Mayor Ames has been vile, malicious and
unscrupulous. It is part of a desperate plot
to seize the city government for the purpose
of jobbery. The opposition to Aines are
spending money like water and will halt at
no rascality to accomplish their ends. They
have filled the city with repeaters and roughs,
who will be out in force today seeking to
intimidate and obstruct the Ames vote.
Forewarned is forearmed, and the friends of
Mayor Ann-, should see that their votes reach
the ballot boxes :;t all hazard.
The personal abuse of the campaign is re
acting upon those who so bitterly assailed
Mayor Ames. They have not dared, and will
not duie to accuse him of being dishonest or
iu any way betraying his trust.
The nabobs will rejoice ovea Ames 1 defeat
but it will be a sorry day for the people of
Minneapolis if the nabobs have the oppor
tunity to rejoice.
The friends of Anns are in the majority,
counting the honest vote, outside of tin
thugs and repeaters imported by the Pills
burj gang. They should abandon all else
to- lay and devote their entire time to rescu
ing the city from the gang who arc seeking

In accordance with the provisions of sec

approved March 12, l^iS. I hereby order that
all places within the corporate limits of the
city of Minneapolis, where spirituous, malt,
vinous or intoxicating liquors are sold or
given away at retail, shall be closed on eltc
tion day, Tuesday, the 1st day of Apri', 1884,
aud remain closed from the hour of 5
o'clock in the forenoon to the hour of six in
the afternoon. The necessity for a rigid en
forcement of this law at "the approaching
election must be apparent to all good citizens,
and strict orders will be L'ivcn to the police
force to enforce it without fear or favor. It
is provided in the iaw that "Whoever violates
the provisions of this section shall be lined
a sum of not less than $25 nor more than
S100 for eaeb and every offense."

J JoIirr Regulation*.
On Sunday Mayor Ames held a consulta
tion with the officers of the police depart
meut, and gave them instruetious respecting
1 the election laws and made the details for
to-day. The entire force is ordered out for
duty, and two men in full uniform are de
tailed for each precinct. Iu addition the
mounted patrol will be stationed at the prin
cipal polling places. The patrol wagon with
ten men will be stationed at headquarters to
respond to calls, all of which will come by
telephone or by the mounted patrol. Officers
were instructed not to speak to people at the
polls, except to answer questions, aud then
move on. and uuder no circumstances to say
anything about politics while on duty. Of
one thing the people are assured, and that is
efficient police service on election day.

The last rally of the municipal campaign
was held at the Market hall last evening*by

flowing. R. E. Reynolds presided, and on
the stage were the following city pastors who
are thoroughly in sympathy with the reform

date lor the mayoralty was also on the stage
and was the centre of attraction. The lirst
• i cb was given by Rev. Mr. Pillsbury, who
urged all tic- men present to do their duty to
day by casting their votes for Hon. Chas.
Evans !!;lt anil the other candidates on the
same ticket He was followed by Rev. Mr.
Morgan who arraigned in scathing language
i::> perfidious Geo. A. Pillsbury, who
violated his repeated promises to Wyman aud
afterwards accepted the nomination from a
clique of politicians. He had not declared
Mi.it he is a candidate for the law aud order;
he has not even promised to enforce the or
dinances and close saloons on the Sabbath.
Will he close the gambling dens or the
house* of prostitution '. He has preserved an
eloquent Bilence on these matters. Miss
Clara Belle Chase, a little girl of six yoais,
recited "We are waiting men." The juve
nile elocutionist elicited deafening appause
which was again and again repeated.
Chas. Evans Holt next made a few re
marks and gave way toW. W. Satterlee, the
war horse ot tiie party, who delivered one of
hi? characteristic speeches and repeatedly
brought down the bouse. lie coirirrjenced
by complimenting the Prohibitionists for
having held the largest and most enthusias
tic meeting of the campaign. The Republi
cans say. we must havea change. They say
the thugs and gamblers must be
controlled. They have, a candidate
who has promised no reform; he stands on
moonshine and feeds <>u sawdust. "When
accepting the nomination bo said that tiie
Republican party was capable of dictating
how ill" city was to be governed} he did uot
say how he himself would govern it in the
event of his election. Promises have been
made lor Mr. Pillsbury by M. W. Glenn.
Thai politician has promised that Mr. Pills
bury's government will be satisfactory to
(■very man doing legitimate business in the
city. A Republican friend bad said to him
that the. Prohibitionists should vote for Pills
bury because this was "a great exigency."
V- s. the great exigency is to have the Re
publicans defeat the Democrats. That's all
there is to it. Some say, '"of two evils choose
the least." The Prohibitionists will uot
choose an evil, iu the positive, comparative
or superlative degree. They will not be driv
en off the track by specious and sophistical
arguments or malignant attacks. They will
hold on tenaciously to the truth and vote for
principle, truth aud right. The mectiug
Pillsbury and the Germans.
Four years ago the Germans held their
state saengerfest in Minneapolis. Mayo
Rand accorded them the "freedom of the
city." The programme of the organization
iucluded singing and a picnic in
the groves in North Miuneapolis.
This so enraged the saintly Geo. A.
Pillsbury that he signed a bitter protest de
nouncing it as an outrageous desecration of
the Sabbath day. The German people are a
liberal people. Not only that, but they are
honest and sincere in their convictions. They
do not believe it a sin to sing on Sunday—
no worse to sing in a grove than
in a hall. The Germans go far
ther. They do not believe it a
wroug to enjoy the recreations and pleasures
of a picnic on Sunday. Geo. A. Pillsbury
evidently thinks differently and he has
alienated the German people in his attempt
to force upon them his personal narrow
guage ideas. The Germans, at the time of
the Saengerfest were very indiguaut. Their
guests had been opculy and flagrantly insulted.
At meetings of the Harmouia singing
society aud tiie Turnverin, warm and. ear
nest speeches were made, condemning the
Pillsbury policy, and that feeling of indigna
tion is still in existence. The Germans will
support at the polls to-day their true aud
tried friend Dr. A. A. Ames. His policy
conforms to their ideas. He is broad minded,
liberal and generous, and believes iu grant
ing every citizen his civil rights.
Brown and Frrnch in .Tail.
Win. N. Brown and James French, the
two men arrested for illegal registration,
were arraigued in the municipal court yes
terday and had their examination continued
uutil to morrow. They were taken back to
the county jail, where they were visited yes
terday evening by a representative of this
paper. They refused to communicate
any information concerning themselves
or their illegal action, except that they came
from St. Paul a few days ago and thought
they ,were violating uo law in registering
their names. That they came from Anoka
or Brainerd they denied, but they were san
guine that no punishment could
be inflicted upon them so long
as they had not been sworn as
to their period of residence in the city.
They said they were totally ignorant of the
registration laws. Being asked what pay
they expected from their Republican friends
for becoming such easy captives, they smiled
and exchanged significant glances". They
were smoking their pipes and taking their
durance quite philosophically.
The Minister's Connudrum Continued.
To the Editor of the Globe:
Minneapolis, March 27, 1884.
I sometimes pull the end of a crasscut saw
as I have listened to its monotonous music
it seemed to say, "do not take the money
of your employer without working for it,
and above all tilings do not be a hypocritefor
that is double iniquity."
Being only a working man, I do not quite
understand the conundrum at the head of
my article under date of March 25. I ex
pect to hear it explained
Sunday morning by those whose
duty it i* to explain a matter which is of such
vital importance to the well being of the peo.
pie. There can be no evasion,as this matter
strictly concerns the good of every man,
woman and child both here and hereafter.
To every minister, who ha* not the Christian
courage and loyalty to duty, to explain it,
and explain it truly, I say, •• Fals-e teacher in
Israel" "Unfaithful watchman on the tower
of Zion" " The laborer is worthy of his hire,"
you are not a faithful workman in the vine
yard of the Lord, you are eating the bread of
idleness, and returning nothing for your
pay. Are you not more interested in the
fleece than Ihejtock.
Is patriotism involved in this issue.or have
we r-ruched that stage "Where fortunes are
made and men decayed, 1' when we no longer
respect such a useless commodity as patriot

found at the rear end of a musket ready to

tried men's souls, bis was put into balance
and not found warning, he risked bis life for
his country and came very near looking it.

give of his patriotism. He was a Democrat

There is enough of them to tell all about it.
It is a ghostly affair.
About that whitewashing that Geo. A. has
received from those fellows that examined
the stone cutting business, it is the poorest
job of tiie kind 1 ever saw. After scraping
together all the material they could possibly
find they did not get enough to cover oue
side of his face, he looks ten times more
hidious now than before they commenced;
wash it oil and let him alone. He did
give the $12,000 job to the convicts and
there is no use of any hypocritical sophistry
about it. William King and Fletcher had no
hand in that whitewashing or they would
have made him look real nice.

Capt. J. N, Cross, City Attorney:
Sir: I address you for the purpose of ask
ing you if there is any provision of the law
which would prevent judges of election from
taking a challenged vote, after it is properly
sworn in, from inside the polling place, after
the voter has given up his place in line in
order not to delay voting while lie is '[iialify
ing liis own vote. A. A. Ames, Mayor.
Hon. A. A. Ames, Major of the City of Min
Dear Sir: In answer to your question
whether or not there is any prohibition
against the judges of election penritting a
person whose right to vote is challenged, to
step into the room occupied by t!;<: judges
for the purpose of being examiued according
to law, and taking his ballot from inside the
polling place i will say that I find no prohibi
tion in the law against the same,
except that ' the ball(i should
be placed on the ballot box when offered and
remain there until withdrawn or deposited.
Of course a practice of this kind should be
prudently managed by the judges in order
not to become a precedent for crowds to be
iu the judges's room.
I remaiu, very respectfully yours,
Jcdson N. Cuoss,
Minneapolis. Minn., March, 31,1884.
To.Judires of Elections and Voters:
The chairmen of the Republican andDemo
cractic city committees join in recommend
ing that in order not to delay
voting in the various precincts, that chal
lenged voters step out of the line and go in
tne~polling places, where, after qualifying,
their votes be taken from them by the
judges. This is intended so as not to delay
the challenged any longer than is necessary
to qualify; also to allow no delay in receiv
ing votes as they are offered.

THE DANVILLE RIOT.
The Riot Said Rot to be a Premeditated
The Negroes Began the Shooting and the
Whites Chipped in.
But the White Carpet Baggers Caused all
Washington, March 31.—E. Enright
(white) testitied before the Danville com
mittee that be Jeft the Opera house with
James L. Johnson, who, according to the
previous witnesses, was said to have killed
two colored men during the riot. Witness
said he was with Johnson during the riot
and Johnson did not fire at all.
J. E. Perkinson (white) said, there was
nriug on both sides. Five or six shots were
tired by the colored people.
T. J. Thompson saw pistols in the hands
of the colored men, about as many as in the
hands of the whites.
R L. Osborn heard one colored man say
when the officers were trying to disperse
them. '-We mean to right.'' Saw them fire
over their shoulders as they ran. One negro
said be was not satisfied with this thing, and
should not be until he saw Danville burned
Charles H. Conrad, tobacco manufacturer,
Danville, was standing behind Captain
Graves, with bis eye on Captain Graves' pis
tol, at the time he was said to have shot Geo.
Adams. Witness stated positively that
Graves did not tire the shot which wounded
Adams. He was chairman in the Democrat
ic Ward club, and in a position to know
there was no premeditation in bringing on
In the course of bis cross examination by
Sherman, the witness asserted, with much
earnestness, that it was a mistake to suppose
there was prejudice against the negroes. The
prejudice was against the low down whites,
the scum of the earth, that came down there
from the north, the men who trot the negroes
into trouble and thm deserted them.
Senator Sherman asked, if a negro, under
any circumstanct a stood any chance of eeV
tinir their right to elect ollices there being in
"Yes, sir, if they vote with me."
"That's it if they vote with you."
."You will never Bee it a- long as you live,
nor as lon<x as I live either, that a set of men
who own property and are trying to build up
a town, and husband their resources, and ac
cumulate wealth, will ever lit negroes come
in and control that town. You may just set
that down as a sun- thing."
That is, the deliberate pnrpose of property
holders to prevent that."'
" I suy it emphatically, but only by fair
"But you have already told us, the major
ity of those who own property will not allow
that government to pass from their bands
into the negroes hands, and worse still, into
the hands of this poor white scum."'
'■ Well, we despise those wore than the ue
irroes, and worse than the devil."
D. K. Richardson, white, was called.
Saw one colored man shoot twice.
George M. Hubbard, white, was patrolling
during the night with others, and shuts were
tired at the party and returned. Witness
was wounded in the leg. His horse was
wounded by the same Bhot.
Green Williams, chief of police, Danville,
examined. He saw the riot from a short
distance and saw the shooting troin buth direc
tions. Before the election he heard Squire
Tolliver, colored, make a speech, iu which he
advised bis auditors to go to the pulls with
loaded arms. People did not go hunting
squirrels with empty arms. The audience
cheered. The witness described the threats
Which bad been made by the colored men
against them fellows who should vote the
Democratic ticket. The witness named the
men to whom these threats wen- made, and
from whom he received his information.
James "Woods, city sargeant, Danville, a
Republican, described bis efforts to restore
and preserve peace. He was satislied the
riot was a sudden ebullition, not a premedi
tated affair. On cross examination witness
said it would not have been safe to call out
the colored militia. He thought it would pre
vent violence to put the Democratic party in
control. He thought it would aggravate feel
ing to put colored men on the peace list.
In Sunday's Globe the following para
graph was published:
'•The Globe is authentically Informed
that a citizen of the .Second ward was re
fused registration by the judges of election
on the ground that he had separated from his
wife aud that she resides in another ward.
The statute of Minnesota reads: Any man
having a family and who has taken up bis
abode with the intention of remaining, aud
whose family refuses to reside with him,
shall be regarded as a citizen aud a voter
where be lias so taken up his abode."
Last evening John Furness, who boards at
M. (.'. Tate:s hotel, aud who is the geutlcmau
referred to in the above
paragraph, called at the Globe
office aud explained that he bad applied for
registration four times and was as repeatedly
refused. The judge of election who refused
Mr. Farncss his rights of citizenship is
George A. Morse who is personally ac
quainted with .Mr. Furness. Mr. Furuess is
a mechanical erL rineer, and has resided in
Minneapolis twenty-three years, lie per
manently separated from bis wife seven
years ago and during that time has voted at
each recurring election. There will be found
away of compelling Mr. Morse to accept the
ballots of citizens, should he longer persist
iu bis opposition.
