It seems that while Mr. Piantz met
with so much success in securing from
the laboring men employed in the War
saw woolen mills substantiating his asser
tions ao.to the pay of the operatives em
plojed therein be was not so successful
in the matter of affidavits from the manu
facturers' side sustaining the other side
of the case. The Macomb Eigle says:
"It will be remembered by our people
here that Mr. Piantz in bis speech, said,
that there are men working in the War
saw woolen mills at 75 cents per day. A
short time ago our republican friends
herd sent word to a leader in the factory
there asking him if the statement was
true. The answer came back that it was
all a lie. A few days ago Mr. Piauiz
filled out an affidavit setting forth that no
men worked in the factory for any such
price. The manager, the one who said
it was a He, refused to make the affida
vit. What do you think about it,
Cleveland's I'ension Vetoes.
In his message returni: g without ap
proval a pension bill for the benefit of
John Reed, Sr., President Cleveland
The records show that the beneficiary
named in this bill filed an application for
a pension in 1877, alleging that he was
the father of John Reed, who died in tht
service, and that his wife, the mother of
the deceatted soldier, died May 10, 1872,
and thai be, the father, was mainly de
pendent upon bis son for support. He
filed evidence of the mother's death and
one witness alleged that he was present
at her death and attended her funeral.
In 1S64. Martha Reed, the mother of
the soldier, filed tier application for pen
sion, in which Ebe ac first claimed to be
the widow of John Reed. She af erward
however, alleged that her husband John
Reee, abandoned her family in 1859, and
had not, therefore, contributed to their
support, and that the soldier was her
main support after such abandonment.
She was allowed a pension as dependent
mother, which commerced in 1862, Uie
date of her eon's death, and seems to
have terminated July 22, 1884. when
she died. .
The claim of the father was rejected in
1883, for the reason that the mother who
had a prior right was still living, and
when his claim was again presented in
1886 be was informed that his abandon
ment of his family in 1859 precluded the
idea that he was entitled to a pension as
being dependent upon the soldier for sup
port. The allegation of 1877, of the man
who now passes as the aged and do
pendent father of a dead soldier, and
the mother died in 1872, when at the
time her claim was pending for pen
sion largely based upon his abandon
ment; the affidavit of the man who ter
tifled that he saw her die in 1872, the

FIFER'S TREACHERY TOWARD THE
A simple ..rj.
I am a huslan.l of r.iury-i in years ex
perience, Will re I !I"Mt ::iiT. my wife wj
at her home. Her tuther mul myself, hav
ing worked together for some time, had
become cronies, ami tipiiriD.i; of his inten
tion of moving to II 1 nskel him bow
many constituted his family. He told me
bis wife, himself ami nine more. I said to
him in a joking way (as we were always
joking with each other) that among the
nine there must be some marriageable
daughters, and told him I would coma
around and take my pick. "All right,"
said he. Well, some time after that my
brother, his wife and myself were invited
to his home to tea. While there I was in
troduced to the family and in due time
went down to supper. On entering the
dining room I looked throngh into the
kitchen and there taw a plump, rosy
cheeked, bashful girl dodge behind the
door. I nudged the old man and said,
"There is my pick." "All right," said he.
While the good things were being passed ;
around I was introduced. I suppose I was
as red in the" face as is possible without
paint, and the reflection from mine red- j
dened hers still more. Supper was finished,
a pleasant chat, and then it was suggested
that we go to a revival meeting. 1 offered
my services as an escort. We arrived at
the church and found it well filled. I
found seats for the sisters while I stood up
at their side, and for a change of position
would sit on the arm rest of the seat. My
little kitchen maid of a few hours ago sat
next to her sister, so tbat in resting her
soft little hand on the back of the seat it
would occasionally come in contact with
mine, especially when a good brother or
sister would say something funny.
Well, there is something in a grip, a
word and a shake of the hand that tells.

The Republicans of Illinois are in a
sweet fight. Fifer is cursing the Ger
mans and stimulating the Republicans
all over the state to damn the foreigners,
to curse the Germans and try to elect
Fifer by trading off the only approach
to a German on the Republican , ticket.
Hertz. On the other hand Ilertz wants
to be elected as bad as Fifer does, so he
is cursing the know-nothings and trying
to persuade the Germans that a Dane is
a Dutchman. Meanwhile Harrison and
Cullom are trying to fling Jonah Fifer
overboard to prevent Cleveland from
carrying the state. Benton Standard.
It is amusing to watch the antics of
some of the so-called Independent papers
in this campaign. They make predic
tion after prediction, covering as they
think, every possible outcome of th
election and then say, "see how fair we
are." They are preparing to point to
some one prediction after November and
say, "we told you so."
Attorney General Hunt has given
another opinion which will be found
about as nearly correct as was his asser-.
tion that the new election law did not
apply to township elections. He believes
that Illinois will go Republican and that
Governor Fifer will be re-elected.

The attempt of the Republican party
to bold the votes of foreign born citizens
while playing for tin support of the
Knovnothinx organization, bus now
been fully ei. j .- tl.
The present compulsory education
law, over the repeal of which the parties
divided in the last legislature, has been
the leading st;-.!e issue. The Republicans
in the last legislature refused to vote for
the repeal ot' the obnoxious features of
this law, although the Democrats by
their votes and kjk'OoIic attempted to
effect such repeal. The revolt of the
German Republicans frightened the Re
publicans, and when their state conven
tion met it changed front completely
and pledged itself to repeal the com
pulsory education law. Governor Fifer.
in his sixwlies in German localities
nuide the Kime pledge, and Republican
papers in their attempts to win back the
German vote have spread these pledges
broadcast among the Germans. Fifer
ha apologized again and aain for hav
ing signed the bill, and has declared bis
action an oversight. In spite of all these
Republican protestations it has been sus
pected all along that Fifer and his party
were playing double, and tbat their
promises were being made only to be
broken. The proof of their double deal
ing is now presented by the Chicago
Times, and it is so conclusive that no
one can doubt it.
A decoy letter was written to Mr. A.
E. Garnet, president of a Knownothing
organization, calling itself The Patriotic

doubtful of the position of Governor
Fifer. This produced the following

Oct. 17, 1S92. My Dear Mr. Williams-:
Answering your last letter will say I know
Gov. Fifer will never sign a bill repealing
the compulsory education law.
His views I am familiar with and per
sonally know how ho stands on the ques
tion. The Chicago Tribune to my mind is
just as near right on this matter as they
were in the days of Horace Greeley, poor
old man, and their expressions are now as
near right as then no more so.
Now regarding the prohibition matter: 1
am a prohibitionist when it comes to that,
but I cannot see how a thinking Christian
man can throw his vote where he knows it
will not count, and at the same time by
thus doing virtually assist in electing the
people to office whose rank and file, ser
geants, lieutenants, captains, colonels, and
all told ARK THE WHISKY ELEMENT of OUT
land. No, no; I am not. a prohibitionist in
that sense. Gixl hasten the day when we
shall have an American party, and when
this comes whisky (the spiritual influence
of) and the Roman Catholic church will lie
on one side and the balance of the Ameri
can people on the other.
It us stand upon the broad platform of
life-giving principles the constitution of
the United States accompanying it with
the utterances of George Washington:
"Beware of Foreign Influence."
1 most certainly should be pleased to
meet you. Thanking you for your manlv
statement of the platform you arc upon,
namely, '"Our Public Schools," I shall hope
to know you better. Very truly yours.
A. E. Gamet.
There is no doubt ah to the genuine
ness of this letter, of which The Times
prints a facsimile. The writer of this
has seen the original letter in tbe hand
writing of Mr. Garnet, and it is copied
above word for word as written.
This letter gives away the whole
scheme. Fifer pledges the Gorman
Lutherans that the Edwards law
lie repealed, while the Knownothir gs
have his pledge that it shall not. Tins
covers the case. Will the people vol"
for such a treacherous double. iie:.ler?

Mr. Cleveland is a great man, tower
ing head and shoulders above any man
the Republicans can possibly pit against
him. Still neither he nor any one else
can be greater, or an great, as the Dem
ocratic party, for that would be the per
fection of greatness, and a point to which
no mortal can attain. But he is as fine
an exponent of the principles of De
mocracy as any living mu can be.-,
