Because he was honest enough to say that
very few things of the sort were done simply
because they were good and just. Even
Abraham Lincoln, notwithstanding popular
glamour on the subject, did not issue the
emancipation proclamation simply because
slavery was unjust and morally wrong. His
assigned object was to weaken the rebellion,
and help his own forces in the field. And
yet, nti mental people believe it was Just

It has been a matter of surprise to a great
many people that ex-Sheriff Ricbter should
allow himself to be again a candidate. His
former term of office was one
continuous record of inefficiency
and jail breaks. The legal fraternity
were rejoiced when a change was made. He
had for his leading deputy one of the most
disreputable men in the city and is pledged
to reinstate him if again elected. His only
plea for votes is that his former cam
paign cost him something. As the
making it was a matter of choice and not
compulsion this entitles him to no sympathy.
The Democratic nominee, Geo. J. Mitsch,
is a young man of sterling worth.
Honest, industrious, and capable, there
will be no repetition of the Richter
regime with him in the sheriff's office. He
is a St. Paul boy, grown to manhood, and
has a reputation which might be the envy of
any young mau in the community. There
should be no hesitation In choosing be
tween these' candidates.
the COUXTY AUDITOR.
There can be no two opinions as to
whether James O'Brien or J. J. McCardy
should be elected next Tuesday. Mr. Mc-
Cardy has held the office for two terms, and
is a candidate for the third term.
He has conducted the auditor's office as a
real estate speculating shop, neglecting the
public business to attend to his private affairs.
The information he has been able to obtain
offlc-utlhj,he has made the subject of barter, sale
and speculation, and has grown rich thereby.
His first move was to secure legislation in
creasing the salary of the office one thousand
dollars bo that he might employ an additional
clerk and devote his attention to his private
business while being paid its a public servant,
lie is uncivil and insulting to the public.
lie refuses to give information to citizens
which is a matter of public record and which
any citizen has a right to demand. "Take
that cigar out of your mouth" is the insulting
remark he hurls at any person who being ad
dicted to smoking comes into his office with
a lighted cigar. He has done nothing in the
office that could not be performed by any
ordinary bookkeeper, and the talk about
his having any influence upon taxation ■ is
the veriest balderdash. Having grown fat
and insolent in office he is no longer worthy
of the place.
James O'Brien, on the other band is a gen
tleman. He is always courteous to everyone.
lie came to St. Paul a small
boy over thirty years ago and has grown
to man's estate with us and one of us.
When the country called he patriotically re
sponded and was one of the bravest men
Minnesota sent to the field. He fell with a
serious wound, while fighting hand to hand,

fourth ward—kucuxd, third AXD
This legislative district has good nomi
nee* by both parties, bat the preponderance
is largely in favor of Amel Oppenbeim, the J
Democratic nominee. Mr. Oppenbeim is one j
of the lire, energetic, business men of j
the city, and thoroughly Informed 1
upon the public interests. A large property
owner and tax payer himself, he also has |
under . his control and management an im- I
mense amount of property, and has every J
interest, as well as inclination, to serve j
in the legislature with an eye
single to the public good,
lie will labor for economy in all departments
of the city, for low taxes and for such legis
lation as the development of the city de
mands. It is rare that such excellent
services as he is capable of - giving can be
secured, and the people of this dis
trict are to be congratulated upon the
opportunity which they have to send such an
excellent, able, and competent gentleman to
represent them in the legislature. He has
made our city affairs a constant study for
years and is thoroughly familiar with our
financial and business interests.
Mr. Cornish did not really desire the nom
ination. He was selected during his absence
to resent the interference of a little clique in j
the Republican ranks, and it will be a per- j
sonal gratification to him to be defeated by
so competent a gentleman as his oppo
nent. Having been thus placed in
the field he feels it due to his
friends to make the race in good faith. But
for this fact be would, undoubtedly, with
draw in Mr. Oppenbeim's favor. He has
not the time to devote which the place de
mands, and the district and city will be
more efficiently served by the selection of
Mr. Oppenheim, who has done, and is still
doing an immense work in developing the
material interests of St. Paul.
THE Til I Kit H Alii).
' The contest fcr the Legislature in the
Third ward develops some peculiarities.
Mr. K. L. Gorman, the Democratic nominee,
is a gentleman in the prime of life, who has
resided in the ward for over thirty years. He
is a large property owner, nearly all his
property being in that ward, and is thoruiMil .
familiar with what the public interests de
mand. He served in the army for three
years, making an excellent record. The only
shadow of objection that is urged again. »t
him Is that be Is clerk of the board of public
works. That is a qualification Instead of a
detriment. That position has given him
familiarity with city affairs and will
make bis services especially valuable
in the legislature. So far from being a rep
resentative of that body, the members of the
board of public works have especially and
publicly deprecated his candidacy, but the
people of his ward desire bis services, and ho
has simply acceded to the popular demand.
They wibh to be represented by a man who
has Interests In common with themselves,
who has both the ability and inclination to
ably serve them.
Mr. Lightner, the Republican nominee, is
a young man who has been a resident of the
city but three or four years. He docs not
own a foot of real estate in the city and has
no interests whatever in common with the
people he asks to vote for him. He has no
basis to ask support except his political pref
erences, and would be utterly
unfit and incompetent to can
for the local interests of the ward
or the city. 80 far as any advantage to the
tax payers of the Third ward is concerned,
they might as well select any society man
from New York or Chicago as Mr. Lightner.
He might represent the ward at a fancy dress
ball, but as a member of the legislature the
idea is supremely ridiculous.
If the people of the Third ward have any
regard for their interests they will make Mr.
Gorman's majority exceed one thousand.
THE FOVMTH WAR U— FIRST AXD
The Republicans of the first and fourth
precincts of the Fourth ward have placed in
nomination for the legislature Wm. Hend
ricks. Mr. Hendricks Is a good natured, but
not overly brilliant boy and is much better
fitted for the part of a clown atja masquerade
than a seat in the legislature. The only
brilliant thing be ever did was when he
swindled the city out of a park. The law
requires that when one wishes to lay out an
addition 'to the city be must dedicate
a block of land for a public
park before the plat commission will permit
the addition to be recored. A few months ago
Mr. Hendricks, who dabbles in real estate,
laid out an addition to the city and submitted
his plat to the commission, with the park
dedication, as required by law. The plat was
duly accepted by the city, but it appears that
he bad previously mortgaged to a man in
Wisconsin the land which he bsd dedicated
as a park. As soon as he got his plat
accepted the mortgage was re
corded and the attorney for the Wisconsin
man proceeded to foreclose on the property.
Before the fraud was discovered lots had
been sold in the addition to innocent third
parties, and consequent!} the foreclosure
stood, while the city could not recall its ac
ceptance of the plat. As the result Mr.
Hendricks got his addition on record and
defended the city out of the park. And this
is the youth who employed a lot of bummers
to nominate bimrjfor the legislature. Just
what skullduggery he has .in view
in the legislature is not very important to
consider, as he has no more opportunity of
reaching that position than ' Blame has of
becoming an honest man.
The Democrats have made such an excel
; lent nomination in the person of Robert A.
1 Smith, vice president of the Bank of Minne
sota, that it would bean insult to compare
the candidates. Mr. Smith is president of
the city council, has been a resident' of the
city and ward for over a quarter of
a century, is a large property owner,
in that ward and in various other parts of
the city, is able, intelligent, and honorable,
against whose integrity not a breath can be
uttered, and bis overwhelming election is
merely a matter of counting the votes. It is
a great personal sacrifice that Mr. Smith has
consented to be a candidate, and the first and
fourth precincts of the Fourth ward, and the
entire city, are to be congratulated upon
being able to secure such excellent services.
THE FIFTH WARD.
The contest in this ward is largely gov
erned by geographical considerations. The
I ward, in reality, should be divided, and the
I Dayton bluff region set apart in a ward and
i legislative district by iteelf. Mr.
J. 11. Drake, the Republican nom
inee, being called sway by the
illness of a relative, hi* opponents
! are precluded from much criticism which
' might otherwise be made. The Globe will,
therefore, make no personal comment upon
i Mr. Drake in his absence. He lives and his
interests lie in what might be termed, by
comparison, the Jhtlthed portion of the
ward. The . people on the bluff
and away out to ' the Harvester
works for a distance of two miles, have in
\ terests which demand attention . and which
1 can only be properly attended to by one of
their own residents.
John J. Lemon, the Democratic nominee,
has been selected as the representative of the
1 u,ifltiu)itd portion of that ward, and be has
the ability, inclination and interest to be a
faithful representative. His Urge property
interests lie beyond the Seventh street
bridge, and be has given ranch time and
personal attention to the public improve
ments in process and those
which ought to I* in proct-. While
he will represent the . whole
ward, he is especially adapted to represent
that portion which so sorely seeds- repre
sentation. The registration shows over three
thousand voter* in the portion of the district
where he is located, and a little over twelve
hundred in Mr. Drake's section. If the
people of the Fifth ward look to their
local interests Mr. Lemon's majority will be
very large. If they should fail to elect Mr.
Lemoa they should cease their complaints
and take such "pot luck ' as may come to
them. They now bare the question in their
own hands. Mr. Lemon is a gentleman of
ability, and he will faithfully serve his
constituency. There is really no political j
issue in the contest bet it is whether the
Dayton bluilans have any rights j
the city at large is bound to respect.
If they respect their own rights they ■
will elect Mr. Lemon. If they should not do
so (though we arc sure they will) they need
not expect anybody to worry about their
hardship* in the future. A vote for Mr.
Lemon is a vote to increase the value of
every foot of real estate on Dayton bluff and
beyond, the city limits.
THE SECOSD i >tt. si \ru wards.
The legislative contest In these wards is so
plain iii.it the voters will have little trouble
to render their decision. The Republicans
have nominated Geo. W. Lamson,wbo,thougb
a worthy citizen, has not the slightest
basis upon which to vest hit claims.
lie is merely a boarder in the city, without a
dollar's interest here, pays little or no taxes j
(none en real estate) and has nothing what
ever at 6Uke. The prosperity of St. Paul or
the reverse Is a matter of no consequence
to him . as be could board in
some other town whenever St. Paul
ceased to be profitable or congenial to him.
Ho is a director in the workhouse, and if
bent to the legislature would advocate the
issue of a large amount of bonds to increase
that institution, an act the public
do not want to see performed, as it is not
desirable to turn the only park, worthy of the
name, which the city possesses, into a penal
colony. Not another dollar should be put
into that institution until arrangiknents are
made for Its permanent location in some
suitable place. The Second ward, where Mr.
Lamson sleeps (he takes his
meals in the Third ward) has no
especial demands for legislation more than
its common interest in the general welfare
of the city, while the Sixth ward is in a
chrysalis state, and has most vital interests
to be fostered, protected and advanced.
Hon. Charles H. Lienau, the Democratic
nominee, is a gentleman of state reputation.
He is the publisher of the Wit Zcitung, the
only daily German paper in the city, and an
old resident of the city and state. His
business property and office is in
the second ward and his residence
and large real estate interests in the Sixth
ward. The Sixth ward levee, the new bridge,
the new railroads coming into the Sixth
ward, and the general development of that
portion of the city, makes specific
legislation for that locality of
vital importance. Mr. Lienau has had large
legislative experience an«! proved himself an
influential and valuable member. He was
one of the leading spirits in secur
ing the legislation which has given
Minnesota good school text books st low
rate and has demonstrated his ability as a
law maker, while he has property interests in
both wards and will represent bis entire con
stituency, he is so situated as to be especially
fitted to advance the interests of the Sixth
ward, and it is no exaggeration to say that
the most vital interests of the entire city rest
upon the immediate and proper develop
ment of that portion of St. Paul. At least
three great trunk railroad lines to the east
will center there during the next year, if
friendly legislation is secured or hostile leg
We arc sure that the people of this entire
district do not need to be told that their
business interests all lie in the direction of
Mr. Ltenau's election.

Rev. Father Lcddex, Vicar General, is
the principal editor of the Albany Catholic
Tdegrapti, and his paper until Monday of the
present week has supported Blalnc,
owing to the charges against Cleveland
with reference to the Freedom of
Worship bill. Several Catholic
clergymen and laymen investigated these
matters and found that Cleveland had acted
honorably in the one MM and had nothing
to do with the other, and they resolved to
give him their support. The Catholic Tde
graph accepted the result of the conclusion
of its friends and ceased to support Blalne,
and in the issue of the paper on Monday last
the Vicar General editorially said :

At last the word "dude" is^lkvly to have a
legal definition which will be a determining
status for the term if it does not altogether
satisfy the irate Montreal gentleman named
Hamilton, who, believing himself previously
insulted when called a "dude," brought the
matter into court, resolved to make tb,e of
fending speaker smart for bis tash use of
slang. The judge had to regard the word
from every point of view, and fix the limit
for its adaptibiiity with safe pertinence. Toe
witnesses who were examined were not at
all satisfactory in explaining the meaning.
An over dressed guy, a fop, or a dandy, were
all described, and eventually the only find
ings were that If Mr. Hamilton was liable to
be called a dude he should not feel the epi
thet an indignity, while no man of average
sense would seek redress at law for such a
Some years ago tbe then mayor of New
port called Mr. Davis, the proprietor of the
Newport Xaa, a "villain.^ The New
York World suggested to the mayor to fall
back upon the law lexicons, which simply
define a villain to be one of the servile class.
A villain, as a villain was moat likely to be
poor, but he might be honest. He might be
a ''villain in gross" who was bound to the
person of the lord of the manor, or a "vil
lain regardant who went with the manor.
The French law of the thirteenth century
recognized "twenty-three sorts and manners
of villains. The word degenerated in the
scorn of the feudal nobility for their in
The name then originally signified a man
at least; but the dude is hard to describe any
way, and Mr. Hamilton, of Montreal, found
It an embarrassing definition In the law.
Perhaps if the learned Judge had given
vent to the scorn of the law for such nonde
script beings it would have been harder to
bear, and Mr. Hamilton, not • knowing * posi
tively the full gravamen which may be lurk
ing in the insinuating name, has still a little
margin of self-respect to stand on.
As it is, there is onlj one parallel to his case,
and that U the Hon. Bardweil Slote, whose '
feelings were so Ulcerated by the aggravating ;
appellation of dodo. Tet while the honor
able gentleman fcit bad. be might hare con- .
soled himself that he was the only survivor
of an otherwise extinct big family, while the

of Montreal hasn't the same unique source
of self gratalation.
The pig in uniform is the boss pig. A cor
respondent of the Chicago Tribune has lately
written some things about the German army '
which ought to make the observing American
pensive. He asked the mayor of Dresden,
among other questions, if an officer had a
right to make a servant of % private, as be
has in America. Never, wae the reply, mak

to .lo the work of a servant
would be cashiered. soldier
would even hold an officer's horse. His uni
form is never degraded, and it U this one
thing that makes the Prussian army the best
iv the world. Gen. Sheridan thinks that
fact made It victorious at Sedan. The ro
tund, common looking Sheridan micht
adopt such a simple basis for inuring vic
tory at home, and stop using soldiers as
servants. The iuference from this writer's '
statement is suggestive.

The arrogance extends to all the world

blacklist (of really intelligent and meritori

suspects. It reminds one of Talleyrand's
retort upon a youg millltary gentleman
who kept saying I my term for all

But the pig in uniform — well he is familiar
to many, who will readily artirra that he is
an officer and a gentleman, without belnsr a
man. He is ostentatiously chivalrous to
ladies, but women have no share in bis
politeness. He lives and moves in a dif
ferent world from the merely human family.
He belongs to the military caste, and every
thing in bis experience helps to specify it.
Society worships it, and generally defers to
it. He readily gets to believing that all the
polish is in the army, and all outside of it
chaos in social circles. Such a superior be
ing Is to be envied. No matter what he
achieves of wrong-doing the lapse is always
described as conduct unbecoming an officer
and a gentleman. It would seem as if even
the government was impertinent in interfer
ing with the august creatures cf its bounty.
The paint raised by Representative
Thomas last winter as to the power of con
gress to revoke the sentence of a court mar

key note of deference to the army profes

courts-martial must be without any ex
traneous appeal and safe from the profaning
touch of civil tampering.
But once in a while the country wants to
know something in particular concerning this
