Rock — Martin and Jackson Both
Special Staff Correspondence.
WORTHINGTON, Oct. 13.— Here in
the bailiwick of the Hon. Daniel Shell,
the partisans are cheerful liars. They
go in for the man or party of their
choice with an abandon that is almost
inspiring. Within an hour of my ar
rival in town it was demonstrated 'to
me that there were two loeaJl clubs, one !
for silver and the other for gold. They
don't mince ' matters down here, and !
they speak of "gold" and "silver" par
ties; not "sound money" and "Demo
cratic." The gold club, I was informed,
consisted of 347 good and true men of !
Worthington — not a farmer being in- j
eluded. The next piece of information ;
vouchsafed me was that there was a
silver club with 320 members, all voters ;
in Worthington. Here was surely some
disparity, for the total vofe of Worth- j
ington two years ago was but 441. Al- j
, lowing for natural increase, there may j
be 500 votes this fall. Now in the two I
' clubs there were 667 members. Here
; was obviously a job. To separate the j
wheat from the chaff was the ques- !
tion. I did it readily enough. The gold
club has a printed list of the member- j
ship. I took a copy of it and got a
copy of the poll list of 1894. In a very
little while I found that 294 of the club
members voted two years ago. I gave i
up the silver list as being nothing
more nor less than a campaign docu- ;
ment wherewith to frighten the weak- :
ling, but I was wrong, for I afterwards
found that the club had the member- ■
ship given, but that it had been re- j
cruited in the country.
SLIGHTLY FOR M'KINLEY.
Nobles county only gave McCleary a \
clear majority over the Democratic and
f Populist candidates of 40. This year
; it will give him more than that, and
there is every indication that McKin- ;
| ley will carry the county by say 200, j
I for the Republican ticket will assured- j
i ly run ahead of the Nelson vote of two
j years ago and that gave the latter a j
j majority of 113. Perhaps the Nelson |
! vote is not quite a fair criterion, but j
whether it is or not McKinley will have ■
\ more votes than he did — more by a j
' substantial number. I found one very
ardent" Democrat, who is, by the way,
i a candidate for office, who agreed with
j Republican Congressional Committee- '
man Cra&dall that McKinley's major- ■
I ity would be 350, and both men are \
! really well informed. It would be ob- i
1 viously unfair to give the name of the
Democrat in the case, but he had the,
best reasons for his estimate. He has ,
j canvassed the county.
The German vote will give the coun- '
jty to McKinley, and the fact that
: Bryan will lose it is due in a very j
I considerable degree to C. W. Schultz, ]
j who was a. state delegate to the Chi- j
cago convention and who bolted the I
nomination, who later went to Indian
! apolis and helped nominate Palmer
: and Buckner. who is now a member of <
I the state organization of the sound I
i money Democrats and who has actual- j
ly organized and got into good work- \
ing condition a German sound money j
i club of 263 members. Mr. Schultz says j
■ that by far the largest portion of his
club membership will vote for McKin
ley, but he is satisfied at that. And I j
may add here that this is the one
| sound money Democratic club I have
j found in the district, and tNit the i
i Palmer ticket will certainly receive a
larger percentage of the vote of this ;
I county than in any county in the First
j or Second districts.
Here in Worthington there are just
three business men who are out for the
Bryan ticket. One of these gentlemen '
! recently failed in business, another is
; a photographer who has hitherto de
-1 voted his attention to prohibition. The
j balance of the town is for sound
: money. Indeed, the fusionists do not
j claim more than 100 of the probable j
500 votes, and they will certainly not j
j get any more. There are other parts
of the county though where the silver j
people are proportionally strong, but
numerically fewer, in Adrian, for in

of the Republican state executive

lature and heir presumptive to Sam Van
Sant's scepter — or gavel. He will cer
tainly* be In Ihe race for speaker, as
nothing but his sudden demise can in- j
terfere with his election. He ls withal i
a good fellow and a bad orator, but" he '
has a voice second to none in the house
but that of "the gentleman from Kan- j
• diyohi," who made so much noise last
session. Mr. Shell told me that McKln- !
ley would carry Nobles county by 500. \
j For himself, he had some hopes of elec- i
! tion, for he ran 2.000 ahead of his
nearest opponent in the district two
j years ago. The particular opponent ;
i was "Jack" Ryder, who was at that
time an editor at Luverne, and who is
now on the stump for sound money.
"I don't see how things could look
better for us than they do here," j
growled Mr. Shell. He is a tremendous
, big man and has a voice that would \
I be deafening if he let it out in a small ;
j room. "For the first time in the history !
| of the county the Germans are with us, ;
\ and that will help swell the majority i
for McKinley. Then there is no fac- ,
. tional row on; we are all together; no- !
; body knows, or at least nobody pays j
| any attention to Frank Day, and Mc
! Cleary has practically a clear field. I ,
: should think that McKinley would get
500. majority in the county; McCleary ,
; something more than that, and Clough :
j will easily run up with McKinley. I !
[ figure that there will be 500 more votes !
! than there were two years ago, or 2,800 '■
\ In all. The new vote will consist large- ;
; ly in immigrants from Illinois and ,
! lowa, and they are naturally Republi- I
j can. The census of 1595 gave Nobles !
! afi increase of 4,000 in five years, and
! most of those people will vote for the
' first time this fall. There is no possible
j doubt of the result here."

Committeeman Crandall thought the

county could be depended on to give
Clough a majority of say 350. He had
been closely observing things and had
reasons for his faith — the change in the
German vote being the principal peg
upon which he hung his faith.
J. A. Town, a lawyer whose business
is with farmers and who sees a dozen
of them every day, assured me that in
the eastern part of Nobles county there
was practically no silver sentiment.
Out of a dozen farmers who had been
in his offlce on the previous day, but
two were for silver — and Mr. Town is
not in politics.
State Committeeman Schultz thought
the county would go for McKinley by
a large majority, though he himself
would vote for Palmer. "Never in the
history of this county was there any
German Republican vote," said Mr.
Schultz. "There are about 450 German
voters in Nobles and in the German
; sound money club that has been or
; ganized there are enrolled 263 Germans.
1 They are all. or nearly all, farmers,
: but thirteen living in Worthington.
The canvass of the county for members
is not yet finished, and I would not be
surprised if 400 of the Germans would
be enrolled. And I would not give you
much for the German vote that will be
left. Mind you, this German vote has
; always been Democratic, or largely fo,
and its defection will make a tre
mendous difference. I don't know how

THINKS IT'S FOR BRYAN.
J. S. Blair, member of the Democratic
state central committee, candidate for
register of deeds of Nobles county on
the fusion ticket and the oniy Demo
ci at likely to taste the sweets of offlce
in that county — Unless it be Dr. Sulli
van, an extremely popular man of
Adrian — is hopeful of the success of
Bryan in Nobles county. "I will grant
you," said Mr. Blair, "that about here
it is all Republican, but over in the
west end' of the county things are
quite the other way. I don't believe
much in the strength of Schultz's Ger
man club and it isn't in the power
of any one man to keep them in line.
It is true enough that Day Is not much
known here, but he has time enough
to remedy that, and the free silver
people are not going to let any one
on the ticket suffer for want of sup
port. I have been over in the west end
of the county and it seemed to me
that every one I met was a silver man.
If we do not carry the county, we will
hold it very nearly even and, consider
ing the fact that McCleary only had
a majority of forty, that is
a modest claim, for the Democrats
and Populists will certainly pull to
gether." Mr. Blair is the editor of
the Globe, a silver paper, and it
was conceded even by Republicans
generally that he was fair, well-in
formed and very likely to be elected
register of deeds. He said that there
tad been great silver gains in Rock
county and that they might carry the
county — a statement that is charge
able to his partisanship, for there is
no possible hope of overcoming the
Republican majority of nearly 600 two
years ago. There will undoubtedly be
fusion gains in Rock, that is not to be
denied, but they will not be material.
Eugene Campbell, the trav< ".ing man
who headed the opposition to Lind on
recount of his action on the excess
baggage bill, lives in Worthington.
He told me that, while he was only
personally interested in beating Lind,
he could not but see everywhere in
Southern Minnesota evidences of sound
money gains. "If the election had
taken place a month or more ago, Bry
an might have had a chance," said Mr.
Campbell. "People might have voted
silver if they had not had time to go
Into the question. But there has been
a tremendous change ln the month and

ALL FOR SOUND MONEY.
Frank Glasgow, superintendent of
bridge construction on the Omaha, has
a crew of forty-five men here. He
said they would all vote for sound
money and very casual inquiry among
them proved It. Many of them have
hitherto been Democrats. Chairman
Humiston, of the Republican county
committee, thought the county would
give the Republican ticket 500 major
ity from top to bottom.
Chairman Harry S. Hobson, of the
Democratic county committee, did not
agree with him. He thought the coun
ty was for silver, but would make
no figures — nor would he discuss it.
He had evidently received that circular
letter of Mr. Rosing's.
Diagonally across the county is the
silver stronghold of Adrian. A canvass
along the road shewed a steady growth
of silver sentiment to the west, but at
Adrain there were no figures to be had
except those showing the growth of
silver. Dr. Sullivan, candidate for the
legislature, lives here and he expects
to be elected. So far as his immediate
surroundings are concerned, he is war
ranted in the belief, but he has other
things to reckon with— that enormous
Republican majority in the district. He
is running in the Seventh senatorial
district, which consists of Nobles, Mur
ray, Pipestone and Rock counties, and
is entitled to three representatives. In
1894 it was largely Republican, and if
Dr. Sullivan is elected, it will be on his
personal popularity. In the town of
"VYilmont, of which St. Kilian's is the
principal place, there are 127 votes and
all but 11 of them are for silver. And
there are ether localities that show as
strongly on either side, but everything
considered, McKinley will carry the
county by a good 200.
Jackson county boasts of a gold
Democratic paper, the Times of Heron
Lake, edited by Chas. Woostencroft,
if for Palmer, and the county is pos
sibly debateable on local affairs. But
I am informed that of the 416 Demo
cratic votes cast in 1894, at least 100
will be for McKinley this year, and the
county may be conceded to the Repub
licans by 200 to 300 majority.
Martin county is nominally Republi
can by 500—- just 513 two years ago. and
it remains to be seen whether Frank
Day can cut that figure down. He
■was not at Fairmont when I stop
ped there, but Mr. Day is quoted by a
close friend of his as saying that his
fight is disheartening from the fact
that he finds all his old friends against
him this year. He can scarcely hope to
carry the county, and at Fairmont,
while Mr. Day is spoken kindly of, the
town will do what it did two years ago
and cast 300 votes for McCleary and
probably 200 for Day— for again will it
be demonstrated that a prophet is not
without honor save in his own country.
The Second district gave James H. Mc-
Cleary nearly 5,000 majority, 12,795
plurality, in 1894. This year It will give
him .nearly 10,000 majority and the Re
publican ticket will run considerably
behind— possibly as much as 3,000 votes
on the head of the ticket— for there is
no possibility of Day polling the fusion

Sheriff Hill's statement;, and the par

the revelation which came upon them
yesterday with a terriWe shock. While
the young fellows have been addicted
to the reading of trashy literature,
much of it the wildest Western sort
they have not been considered crim
inally inclined. J. Haps, the younger,
who was killed, was but eighteen years
of age. The one under arrest at Fair
mont is Louis, aged twenty-three.
The robber taken alive revealed his
identity to Marshal Ruby, of Lake
Mills, at the time of hi«- original con

ner, and therefore the president decided to
build a snug little nest for his wife and
family among the exclusives of Hempstead
society. Later in the season the president
will put in some time among the quiet of
the Berkshire hills. By that time the plans
outlined by W. C. Whitney for the finest
summer home in America will have been
carried out. The 7,000 acres of land which
he purchased and presented to his son, Henry
Payne Whitney, and the latter's bride, Ger
trude Vanderbilt on their wedding day,
will have been thoroughly improved. It is
the lads, he has up to this time re
frained from repeating the revelation.
When a Globe representative part
ed from him at Albert Lea yesterday
forenoon Mr. Ruby was still firm in his
determination not to be the instru
ment of bringing disgrace on the heads
of the family, although he professed a
belief that the secret could not long
escape detection by the friends of the
men, as the pictures of them circulated
through the vicinity of their home.
The dead boy was a superb speci
men of physical development, and
prided himself upon it to no small ex
tent. Since he has been living at
Mason City under the name of Jesse
Lake he has had his photograph taken
in the characteristic light straw hat
and linen suit which James J. Corbett
wears in his play, and in one of Cor
bett's most impressive poses. This
photo was identified easily by those
who saw the man in life and soon after
he was killed before his features had
been much distorted. It is stated that
at the same time this picture was
taken, Lake, or Kellihan, had himself
photographed stripped to the waist,
showing his muscular development.
Lake, so called, had been employed for
about five months, since the 9th of
May, if current reports are accurate,
in the store of P. P. Himmelrich, of
Mason City. The coat which was on
him when killed had this name in the
hanger under the collar. The fact that
some of the dead man's linen was
marked with the word "Pe,te" is ad-
verse to the names now credited to
him, but may be accounted for by the
fact that while working for Hlmmel
■qich, their laundry might have been
mixed up in some way. Inside of the
leather belt that the dead man wore
was the name "Lake" in red ink. The
authorities have the address of a man
who says he saw Lake inscribe the let
ters in the belt.
The prisoner's story of his escape
from the scene of his crime is one of
hairbreadth escapes in many places.
He states that aside from falling off

WINONA, Minn., Oct. 13.— A tale of
tragic death is today received from
Arcadia. The story, in short, is as
follows: Last evening about 6 o'clock \
the little twelve-year-old daughter of
Denton Tucker was carrying a lamp
through the house. For some reason,
perhaps the swishing of the oil through
the feed, the lamp exploded. The lamp
was shattered into many pieces, and
the burning oil thrown all over the
dress of the child. She was quickly en- '
veloped in a sheet of flame. She be
came frightened and completely lost
her head. She rushed frantically out i
into the yard of the residence, suffering
intense agony; Her rapid movements
in the open air only added to the fierce- J
ness of the fatal flames, and her whole j
body was terribly burned. Her clothes \
were completely burned off before she j
could be given aid.
She was finally secured, more dead
than alive and tenderly carried into
the house. The best of aid was given
by a physician, as soon as one could be j
summoned, but it was evident from
the first that the child had but a
short time to live. Her sufferings were
most intense and heartrending. At
about 2 o'clock this morning death re
-lieved her terrible pain.

precinct committeemen of both parties
were active all day and the increase
was noticeably early in the day, so
that the judges of election, everywhere,
predicted a heavy registration, ln all
of the wards, however, the busiest por
t.on of the day was after 6 o'clock.
Candidates and precinct workers were
busy urging the voters to take advan
tage of the opportunity and the weath
er, and in some cases carriages were
brought into requisition to convey lag
gard and indifferent voters to the places
ef registration. In some instances it
was reported that the places of regis
tration were not opened promptly, and
the ward workers of both parties wera
prompt to prod the offending judges
and extra efforts were used in such
precincts to get out the voters.
For the purpose of ascertaining as
nearly as possible the percentage of
increase in the registration, the Globe
selected four wards from which to
secure complete and as accurate re
turns as possible last night. The fig
ures for April are official, those for
October In a small number of cases
estimated so far as the last half hour
cf the registration is concerned. Mak
ing all allowances for inaccuracies, the
following figures are presented as in
dicating the probable percentage of
ircrease in other wards. Of course,
:t is not possible to determine what
proportion of the increase can be safely
claimed by either political party, but
both Democrats and Republicans pro
fess to be elated with the increased
figures and claim they will be profited
In the Democratic Fourth and the
Republican Seventh the largest in
crease is noted, while the Fifth and
f'ixth show but a small percentage of
increase. But the same ratio applied
to the remaining wards would indicate
t';at the total increase through tbe
city will not fall far short of twenty
per cent. Precincts from some of the
other wards reported to the Globe
show that the proportion of increase
i« about 20 per cent. The total reg
istration for the first day of last spring
was 9,090. An increase of 20 per cent
would make yesterday's total a little

DOCGALL HAS REPEXTED.
Will Not Try to Influence Vote* of
ST. LOUIS, Oct. 13.— Dougall D.
[ Crawford, the big dry goods merchant
I who discharged a baker's dozen of
I his men last Saturday because they
j announced their intention to vote for
i Bryan and Sewall, has repented his
i action, and today, over his own signa
i ture, in a public letter says he will
take the men back. In part he says:
"I have invited all the men to re
turn to my store and to occupy their
former several positions without preju
dice as regards the future, and without
loss of salary' since they left my em
ploy. A man in anger often makes
\ mistakes, but I do not believe he loses
any of bis manhood by admitting his
error. I desire every man hi my em
ploy to vote as he pleases, but I believe
that every man when l# he carefully
studies existing conditions, should vote
for McKinley. To allow all of my em
ployes to vote as they please and have
ample time to do so. I have decided to
close the store of Crawford & Co., at
1 p. m., on Nov. 3."
