Mr. Cable for having in bis possession a
valuable "Life of Christ." Their motives
are rascally enough to do Rnvtbmjj, but
as tbey can find no caute or foundation
for attacking bim for HDVlhing tbey feci
themselves compelled to criticise bim for
possessing; such a book.
Almost acv man in the district unlet
tered and lnexperi-need would bave
made a better congressman than bas
Oest. When he is not a hughim; stock
In Washington he is a cinber. Tbe dis
trict is considered of little account be
cause of this man whom we have sent to
represent us. Tbe republicans mnde a
sid blunder in giving him the nomlna
I Gkht not only never gave a dollar to
' ,' wards tbe Hennepin canal but be Dev. r
i assisted it in any way. even while was
in conersss. He voted fur the river and
i harbor bill and he would; not have done
that, urgent as tbe necessity was. If his
friend in this city bad told bim to vote
gainst it. Gest Is owned and controlled
by ny man who will promise bim a re
ward, or one to whom be can turn in a
i of of emergency.
Is It possible to believe that the people
can be fooled another two years? Are
thoso who are so damnably taxed willing
to put their necks in the yoke again,
hoping that Ood Almighty may come to
their relief? 1 the heart not sickened at
topsdeferred? Credulous must be the
man to the verge of Idiocy who could
trait again, being duped so often. Prov
idence gives a helping hand to those who
act for themselves.
BicArsB Mr. Cable has not a smirched
or blackened character it drives bis op
ponents to madness almost to think that
they cannot truthfully say something
gainst him. Put him in the place of
Mr. Oest as candidate and place man
like Oest at tbe head of tbe democratic
ticket but no. it is incredible to imagine
such thing. Tbc democrats would re
pudiate such candidate and the repub
licans would lauirh him to srorn.
lr ln McKinley bill should not be set
aside by the next congress or its provis

many hardships throughout the land
among all people except the wealthy
manufacturers. This will be made
known after election but it will not do
to Mknowlede it now as the selfish
ends of Ibe bosses would then be defeated.

of their blindness who vote for the con
tinuance in power of 8Uch men as Reed
nd McKinley. and all tbe rest of the
high taxer-. and Oest amone tbe others?
What happy liar the Unhm contin
" to be. It goes out of its way to
void toe truth- A couple of days ago
the Abucs said the McKinley bill admit
ed books free that were printed in a for
eign language, but charged duty on
books printed in English. Tbe CnUm
now says that the opponents of the Mc
Kinley bill are slating that there is duty
oo books in foreign language. The

From every part of the district cornea
the intelligence that Reedism and Mc
Kinleyism and the par y of plundering
and extortionate taxes man go. It is a
case where patience has ceased to be
virtue. The people bave suffered long
and in s'lence and now tbe day of reckon
ing has come. It is a spontaneous action.
The ux payers are alive to their own In-
terests and will not be humbled and
snubbed and robbed ot their rights anv
longer. From oue end of the district to
tbe other this Is tbe feeling and this feel
ing is the necessary step to ensure suc
cess. In all tbe counties in tbe district it
is the same. Gest will now know how
the people consider bis action in voting
for higher taxation, and in every way
neglecting their material interests. He
could hardly expect tbeir decision to be
otherwife. spd inwardly Le knows where
the blame justly attaches to himself.
Democrats will do themselves and tbe
principles of tbe party justice by voting
for the straight ticket. Every man on it
is worthy of election, so that no man
should be scratched. Both Wilson and
Vinton should receive one and a half
votes each for the legislature- They can
both be elected and they will be, thus
making more certain the sending of Gen
eral Palmer to tbe United States snate.
With Cable in congress, Hinman in the
state senate. Vinton and Wilson in the
lower house of the legislature, Gordon
for sheriff. Browner treasurer, Creutg
clerk, and Marshall superintendent, this
district and county will have a represent
ation and a set of officials that will be
worthy in every way of the people whom
tbey will represent.
Tbe numerous republicans who will
scratch tbeir regular ticket can do so with
a clear conscience, in addition to having
the example and approval of hosts in
their own party. They can thus demon
strate to Mr. Gtst, for one, that they do
not sanction bis assistance in saddling
upon them a ruinous system of taxation,
la which there is Deitber honesty nor
reason. They wiil demonstrate also that
tbey da not approve ot his pernicious
parti-an ways in other matters effecting
the welfare of the community.
The voters will hear in mind that it is
necessary to See first that their ballots are
correct. Next it is necessary that thsy
shall go to tbe polls at as early an hour
as possible. It will not do to say that
this matter can be put off until the even
ing as well as to be done in tbe morn
ing. Something may transpire to pre
vent voting in tbe afternoon, while it
could have been done in tbe morning.
Besides it is much preferable that the
votes should be recorded in tbo morning.
It gives a stimulus to tbe otherwise in
different. Men are gregarious. They
like to co in flocks, and wben they see
flittering vote early in the day tbey bave
an ambition to make it larger. And they
do it. It is tbe fuel to the flame, and en
tbusiasm is a! ways contagions. Neither
ill it do for anyone to lull himsel." into
indifference by being assured that his can
didates will be elected whether be
contributes to their support or not.
That is a dangerous idea. If large num
bers were possessed of tbat feeling note
wtat the result must necessarily be. Let
every man also see that at least one other
votes as be himself does and let that oth
er be one whom be himself has induced
to vote. By that means regrets will be
avoided. Elections have been lost, not
through a want of existing votes, but
through a carelessness in having tbem

an honest and impartial governmeut wiK

Air. oest win end tbat be could not im

A COWARDLY TRICK.
Andrew Waldman Has Monsethlng la
ay of the "lnlon' Latest with
Befereae to tbe Cane Concerning
Bowliso, 111.. Nov. 1 I see by tbe
Union ot the 81st an affidavit concerning
a conversation with me on tbe 26th of
last August, but the fact tbat that affl
davit which by the way, does not
amount to shucks, was heid back two
months. whin it could just as well have
been printed sixty days before in itself
shows that both Mr. Zabn and the Union
feared the contradiction. In the first
place Mr. Zabn lies deliberately about
what be saya of this conversation wUh
me. I told Mr. Zahn no secret, and am
not ashamed of anything I said to him.
He need not have made his statement
under oath for there was nothing in It
worth swearing to. I received no pay
for tbat affidavit, It contained tbe
truth, and I don't take pay for telling the
truth. No money was offered
me for that purpose and I would not
bave accepted it if it had been. I had to
leave my farm and go to Milan to have
my statement sworn to. I lost a day in
so doing, and for that I was paid f 5.
Mr. Zabn knew this to. be a fact, as I
told brm so. Now why did he withhold
his affidavit about the matter, if it was
not in hopes it would be too late for a
reply T I call tbis the most cowardly and
one-sided way of doing that I have ever
Ttte facts remain, however, just as I
bave stated tbem in n.y affidavit. Gest
tried to extort from my sister, now dead,
a portion of tbe money Mr. Cable gave
ber voluntarily and oyer and above the
terms of settlement, and all that can be
said to the contrary is not true. I know
whereof I sneak, as I was a witness to it
a l, and I don't give one version of it at
one time and another at another, as tbe
Union makes Mr. Hansgen do, as be
tween its issues, following tbe publica
tion of my affidavit and the publication
of Zabn's affidavit.

No campaign would be considered
complete without some kind of a scried
from A. H Hampton Not tbat be e rer
has anything ti say worth listening to.
hut he has confused ideas, decayed sec ti
eoents and self consuming bile, which he
periodically works off to continue an ex
istence for which there is no necessity.
He quotes holy writ: "Judge not. l st
ye be judged also," and then sets him If
up as superior to tbe divine Master, and
says he has a right to ignore Him. Nat
being satisfied at taking issue with Christ
be attacks the motives and purposes of
Mr Cable in such a way that a strang.tr
might be led to believe that he was in the
habit of coming in contact with
gentlemen men whose word is consid
ered inviolate. But the contrary is true.
It is only by accident he meets a man of
any merit whatever, and as heconsideis
his own word of little consequence he
takes it for granted that the rest of the
world is in the same depraved condition.
He appeals to "fellow workmen" when
the fact ia the only thing he knows cf
labor is what be is competTed to perform
in a temporary way. Even that he at
tempts to avoid, for he worked npon the
credulity and simplicity of G?st to pro
cure him a pension for services which ht
never rendered. For his thirty minute!
in the war tbe people are taxing themselves
so that this defamer of character may
live in idleness a man who hasn't
courage enough to lick a postage stamp
let alone shoulder a musket in defence
of a nation. He was a roem ber of tbe
Rodman Rifles when tbat company a few
years ago was called to East St. Louis to
quell a riot and this poltroon who feels
called upon to s-i t in judgment upon Mr.
Cable felt so agitated by fright, and so
lacking in manly duty that he begged to
be excused on account of sickness. He
became ill through fear of an injury to
bis worthier s carcass, or else if not sick
he made that cowardly excuse tbat he
might be relieved from duty.
This is tbe man who sets up his dis
eased vaporiogs about Mr. Calk-and who
covers Mr Gest with the prodections of
an emetic. Does this braying nonenli"
ty not stop to consider tbat Mr Gest has
had four pears in which tbe people can
study bis fitness? Does be not know tbat
be himself can no more judge of the mo
tives or man'iness of Mr. Cable than he
can be a ptoper judge of his own ustful
nest? Hampton may indulge in mental
speculation to his heart's content but be
cai have nothing to do with a fact Tbe
latter is always a truth and of such a
thing be has no conception. Tbe peo
ple need no processes for catching wind
with which o inflate the size of Mr. Gest.
Hisproper dimensions are known and
cannot be increased by a system of fore
ing. It needs no prophe: t tell of his
future. Tbat can be measured by tbe
past. 13U promises amount to nothing.
Twice before has be given forth an abund
ance of words freighted i with hopeful
tales but all know only too well what bas
been done. Simple he was but a few
short years ago and but little was expect
ed of bim. Now by what meat does this
Caesar live that be bas grown so great?

New YtiKK, N.iv. 3 As near a' can be
aseertai.iLsl th -r- were lot iero ns in all
on hoar 1 tbe two ill fa eJ Vv-steis which
came in collision orTBirnrgat light Thurs
day uight. Of these thirty have been res
cued, including the whole crew eleven in
number of tbe Cornelius Hargravo. The
latter were brought In dating Saturday,
tbe second mate of th schooner 'Walker
having been picked up afloat on a gang
plank by a pilot boat, and th others in
a bout with the captain. Walker gave aa
account of tbe disaster as soon as he had
somewhat recovered from tbe effect of
exposure, and lays tbe blame of tbe aollis
inn on the Vizcaya'a officers. Walksr is an
intelligent Yankee sailor, and told a
All Her Lights Raining.
He said: "Thursday evening was fair
the sky clear and the sea smooth. A fair
breege was blowing off the land. We had
everything, aet slow aud aloft. Our light
were up and burning. I was in charge of
the deck, an I had one man at the wheel,
another forard, and another was loung
ing in the waist. The rest of tbe crew
were below. Ju-t as darkness settled
down, aliout C:I3, I think, we saw a
steamer about nine mile away. At the
time we were steering just about north
east, and the steamer was headed sooth
by east. We loth held in onr course.
After a bit I saw her green light plain
and told Capt, Allen, who was below, tbat
she was bearing down upon us. He said
all right, to show ber the torchlight.
Bad Lookout on the Btaaaaer.
"I finished the torch, but the steamer
didn't answer. She keot right on her
course. We were geulng pretty close to
her by that time and I called tbe captain
npon deck. He told the man at the wheel
to keep her as she was that we bad the
right of way. I saw then that there was
going to be a amash if something wasn't
done quick. A turn of oue spoke of th
wheel of either vessel would have been all
that was needed to make them clear. Th
Spaniard never mad a move to change
ber course nor give any signal that she
saw us. Capt. Allen grabbed the wheel
aud tried to put tbe helm down, but it
was too late. We banged square into tbe
The Inevitable Collision.
"We were loaded deep and onr jibboom
was peaked high so that wben we struck
the steamer lhat bit tbe bridge, smash
ing it and also nil the boats on tbe star
board side. The two vessels hung to
gether fur a minute, then the schooner
swung round alongside of the steamer.
As soon as she did so a lot of tbe crew of
the steamer jumped down on our decks.
The minnte the collision happened onr
men below tumbled upon deck and ran
aft where the boat bung ou the davits.
The captain ordered me to stop the
Spanish sailors, who were Jumping oft
tbeir ve-sel to get our boats, and I obeyed
orders In the me antime the captain got
a few men in his boat and rowed away,
leaving ine on the sinking vessel.
Afloat on a Cang Flank.
There was a big cang plank in the top
of tbe house, and I iai K-tied it overboard.
When I got it over I looked for the steam
er, but she had sunk. Tn schooner was
jnst about ready to go down, too, so I
threw off my coat ami jnmped overboard,
grabbed tbe plank and got far enough
away to get out cf tbe suction when sbe
went under. For a minute or two it
seemed like there was men thrashing
roond iu tbe water on all sides. I never
beard such shrieks in my life When I
got a chance to lo.k around I saw that
there were twelve men besides mrself
holding on to the plank. All around as
was wreckage of all kinds. I thought
the captain would come back and pick as
up. but be did not.
On by One They Weal Down.
"The wind was blowing off shore and it
blew us slowly away from tbe wreck and
out tones. Every few minutes a swell
would rU the plank over and every one
would go under waUr. As tbe Spaniard
were yelling all the time tbey wonlj get a
moulbfnl of water at every roll and on
or more of them would drop off and sink.
I tried to make tbem keep tbeir mouth
shot, but tbey kept calling on some saint
all tbe time. It was awfuL Every time
one would sink he would give a terrible
yell Just, as be would go down. By 0
o'clock the last man bad gone down and I
was left alone. After I found I was alone

them to my suspenders, thinking tbat if
