IN reference to the item in the
UNION about some St.Paul parties con
templating starting a bank in Prince
ton, the Elk River Neios kindly says:
"We would not'object to such an insti
tution in Elk Eiyer. But we do not know
of an interior village anywhere, where a
banking capital of from $25 to $50,000,
could be more profitably planted than in
the thriving prosperous, neighboring vil

the Dispatch has soured on Pillsbury,

support. There's growling all along
the line.
IT is hardly fair for Princeton to
monopolize all the county offices.

ABOUT that Cambridge convention
matter to which Mr. Barker calls our
attention in the last issue of his paper,
it is a question of veracity between
Messrs. Gates and Warriner on the

the other. The UNION would not
knowingly do aught to injure Mr.
Barker's political aspirations, but at
the same time, we do not feel justi
fied in making the desired correction.

THE REASON WHY
The Lake City Leader, in a recent issue
takes up the yell of the Pioneer-Press,
and makes a savage attack upon Hon. C.
A. Gilman, candidate for lieutenant-gov
ernor. The sour milk in the Leader's
epeoanut is easily accounted for, in the
fact that a few years ago Mr. M. C. Rus
sell its editor, ran for the legislature (in
the Brainerd district and was defeated.
He charged his defeat to St. Cloud politi
cians, and notably upon C. A. Gilnaaq.
But Russell is not candid enough to say
so, and thereby put his opposition to Gil
man on true ground.Hon. T. F. Knap

With a sniff and a snap Betsy turned
away, and shortly afterwards Tom Darcey
lifted himself upon his elbow.
"Ah, Tom, are yon awake?"
"Yes."
"Then rouse up and have a warm
glass."
Tom got upon his feet and steadied

"No, Peter, I won't drink any more to
night."
"It won't hurt 3'ou, Tomjust a glass."
"I know it won't!" said Tom, buttoning
up his coat by the only solitary button
left. "I know it won't."
And with this he went out into the chill
air of midnight. When he had got
away from the shadow of the tavern, he
stopped and looked up at the stars, and
then he looked down upon the earth.
"Aye," he mmtered, grindmg his heel
xn the gravel, "Peter Tindar is taking the

"We'll see!" he replied, setting his foot
firmly upon the ground, and then he
wended his way homeward.
On the following niorpiughc said to his
wife:
"Ellen, have you any coffee in the
house?"
"Yes, Tom." She did not tell him that
her sister had given it to her. She was
glad to hear him ask for coffee instead of
ihe old, old cider.
"1 wish you would make me a cup, good
and strong."
Tom drauk two cups of the strong,
fragrant coffee, and then went outwent
piit with a resolute step, and walked
straight to the great manufactory, where
he found Mr. Scutt in the office.
"Mr. Scott, I want to learn my trade ov
er again."
"Elj, Tom! What do you mean?''
"1 niean that's Tom Darcey come back
to the old place, askiug forgiveness for
the past, and hoping to do better in the
future."
"Tom," cried the manufacturer, starting
forward and grasping his hand "are you
in earnest? Is it really old Tom?"
"It's what's left of him, sir, and we'll
have him whole and strong very soon if
you'll only set him to work."
"Work! Aye, Tom, aud bless you too!
There ia an engine to be set up to-da}-.
Come with me."
Tom's hands were weak and unsteady,
but hi3 brain was clear, and under his
skillful supervision the engine was set up
and tested out it was not perfect. There
were mistakes which he had to correct,
and it was late in the evening when the
work was complete.
"How is it, now, Tom?'* enquired Mr.
Scott, as he came into the* testing house
and found the workman ready to uepart.
'She's all right, g!r. You may give,
your warrant without fear.'?
"God bless you, Tom! You don't know

Toni Darcey. a young man, had grown
to be a very hard one. At heart he might
have been all right, if his head and will
had only been right but these being
wrong the whole machine was going to
the bad very fast, though there were times
when the heart felt something of its old
truthful yearnings. Tom had lost his
place in the great machine shop, and what
money he now earned came from odd
jobs of tinkering which he was able to do,
here and there at priyate houses.
One day Xom had a job to mend.a
broken mowing machine and reaper for
which he received five dollars, and on the
following morning lie started out for his
old haunt, the village tavern. He knew
that his wife sadly "needed the money,
and that his two little children were in ab
solute suffering from want of clothing,
and that morning he held a debate with
the better part of himself but the Qther
part had become very weak and shaky,
and the demon of appetite carried the
day.
It was late at night, almost midnight,
the landlord's wife came into the bar
room to see what kept her husband up,
and she quickly saw Tom.
"Peter," said she, not in a pleasant
mood, "why don't you send that miser
able Tom Darcey home? He's been hang
ing around here long enough."
Tom's stupefaction was not sound sleep.
The dead coma had left his brain, and the
calling of hia name stung his senses to
keen attention.
"Why don't you send him home?" de
manded Mrs. Tindar, with an impatient
stamp of the foot.

More Treason to the Party.
The Union ihh week, hoists in its
proper place, the republican ticket
nominated at the late republican state
convention, with one exception, that
of the CKndidate for lieutenant-gov
ernor. If the delegates who placed
in nomination Mr. Gilman, after the
circumstances which were brought tp
light in the convention, expect the re
publicans of this county to swallow
and accept that nomination, they labor
under a gigantic hallucination. The
republicans of Anoka do not propose
to support any such individual for this
important office, and are disposed to
teach the republicans pf this state a
lesson, by repudiating the incubus
that has'been crowded upon them,
and the Union is with them in the
position taken. When the republican
party of Minnesota in convention as
sembled $0 far forgets its duties and
privileges as to place in nomination a
man like Cha's A. Gilman. for lieuten
ant-governor, it is time for the decent
and. respectable element of that party
to repudiate the nominationeven if
by so doing a democrat be elected in
stead, for we would a thousand times,
rather have a good democrat get the
office, than a corrupt republican. Gilr
man may be elected, but mark the
prediction, the republicans of Anoka
county are not the voters who will
elect him to the office.AnoMn
