Removal. 5"The UNION Office is now on the ground floor of the building located* on the south east corner of First street and Washington avenue, nearly opposite Whitney's Steam Feed Mill. sf WOMAN are office. eligible to any school ANOKA is to have a grain elevator and anew flour mill soon. &? Sti THE Pioneer-Press says, "Mr. Riee is by far too good a fellow to make a good governor." Jfc PRINCETON can boast of as many and as well-filled stores as any? town in the state of its population. WK are not one of those who be lieve that the election of Edmund Rice as governor would be. a public calamity, still the UNION is' in favor of the re-election of Governor Pills bury, 5-*to#^rt-ia^* Two years ago Pillsbury ran con siderably behind his ticket in the counties of Mille Lacs, Sherburne and IsantiMille Lacs giving Banning a majority. Perhaps things will be dif ferent this fall. WHAT if the whole republican state ticket should be defeated this fall? Miunesota Mould still continue to exist as a stateand the wire-pull ing politicians would have learned a much needed lesson. HE Montevideo Ventilator, edited by Hon. T. F. Knappen, formerly of Cambridge, is enthusiastic in its sup port of C. A. Gilman, for lieutenant governor What did Gilman ever do to Bro. Knappen EDMUND SICK, the democratic nom nce for governor is acknowledged by all to be a very strong candidate one of the best men the democrats could possibly nominate. E. P.'Barn- nin. the democratic nominee for lieu tenant-governor is spoken of as a first class man, although not very well known! ACCORDING to the state auditor the state tax this year will be but one and a half millsa decrease of one and three -tenths mills from last year. This is all very nice, but when the state board of equalization doubles and trebles the valuation as returned by the various county boards we fail to see where the decrease of one and three tenths mills comes in. ANOTHER Indian outbreak. On the 29th ult!, in a canon at Milk River in tho northwestern pa it 6f Colorado, Major Thoinburgh's command was ambushed by Ute Indians* While cutting their way through the savago hordes the gallant Major arid fifttecn of his men were killed and twenty five wounded* The balance of the mand had entrenched themselves and were besciged by a host of the red devils. A gallant courier! broke through tile lines and carried the news to Rawlins. Reinforcements are. being rabidly burrjed forward-f, EDNESDAY, OCT. 1. 1879. WHY did not the Isanti County Press publish that circular of Attorn ey.General Wilson's in reference to eligibility of woman to hold school offices, several weeks sooner. But then the opinion in question is not recognized as law anyhow. DEMOCRATS, here is what the Mil waukee Sun editor, a life long demo crat has to say about the acquittal of Gully, the murderer of Miss Cornelia Chisholm The Sun has not been so discouraged in years as it was at the verdict acquitting the Mississippi murderers who killed the family of Chisholm, including his daugh ter who 'attempted to shield her father from the blows of the assassins. This country has been so indignant, since these murdeis were committed, that -even the political friends in the north, of the mur dercra, have been looked upon with* sus picion, and men have almost huted them selves because there was no way for them to be classed otherwise than as belonging to a party that kills women and little chil dren for political reasons. The verdict acquitting those murderers is a campaign document that is stronger than all the speeches that can'bo deliveied, and the picture of that poor girh wounded and dy ing because she lovedijer father, who was a republican, and facing those ferocious savages wilt impress itself upon thcfhcarts of loyal Americans of every party, and the picture bodes no good to a paity or a community that permits such work in the name of politics. The democratic party of Mississippi endorses such crimes. The democratic party of Mississippi should be damned. A DISGUSTING INCIDENT. Col. N. D. Tyler made a long speech filled with life and humor, exciting much enthusiasm. In the course of his remarks, the speaker related a very interesting inci dent. He said his mother recently met Mrs. Chisholm at Washington, and the latter saii that when attending com munion senie at her church, one day shortly after the murder of her husband and son, as she approached the com- ^^o&ioir^W>ds^li about to. drink the wine, she noticed that H. G. Gully, the murderer of her daughtei, had followed her to the table, apparently to drink the communion wine with her. Mis. Chish olm was so astonished that she hardly knew what action to take, but drank the wine without resenting the insult.New York Tribune. What a sad commentary on the Christianity of the 19th centurya mouster whose hands are stained with the. blood of a defenceless young girl and, that of her gray-headed sire, par taking of the Lord's supper alongside the mother and wife of his victims! The picture is revolting. Is it any wonder that there are so many un believers in the world when such imps of hell as this Gully are wel comed into the folds of the church? Every one of these southern thugs are good christians., If heaven is to be peopled with such cowardly assas sins as Gully and Baiksdale it will not be a healthy place of residence for any but tjhose who voted the straight democratic ticket while in this world.

Editor Union: The monotony of the time is slight ly ruffled at present, by the appear ance of Mr. Charlie Ayers and thresh ing machine this week he is making times pretty lively, going from house to house finishing up threshing, and away again before you know it. Grain is not turning out very well in the woods and the farmers are rather blue. Mr. B. Babb and daughter leave for the prairie on Monday, to spend a few weeks out there. Th weather has been beautiful for sever al days, and the trees are beginning to assume their autumn robes, every breeze that passes scatters the leaves profusely. I might tell you of some bee-hunters that were out last week and fauna* the tree, ran home after pails, etc., to get the honey, and after all it was only a wasps' nest but guess I won't they might not like it. Per haps more next time. H. Complimentary. Mr. Harry Head has charge of Murray's stoie during the illness and absence of the proprietor. From a short acquaintance, the writer would say that Mr. Head is a gentleman who will make many friends. Elk River Star. Our Charue Strangers to Princeton are often a good deal alarmed at the loud and somewhat astounding explosions that occur frequent ly in the upper part of town and think that the IndUns have bioken loose and are massaereing the people. It is hard to make them believe it is simply a man in dulging in a little laughter, until they are brought face to face with the bis genial, whoie souled Charley Rines, and hear him "explode" once. This explains why sev eral strangers have come away fiom Princeton raving maniacs The fact was was never explained to them.Elk Rivei Stat. We have quit working for fun or on promises. Reason: It does not pay. Messrs. Call Pinkham, John Gould ing and Asel Love all lost horses last week. C. H, Rines is buying county orders at a small discount for cash, 'and is paying their full face value in good-. There is more building going on in Princeton at present than at any time during the last five years Mrs. B, P. Whitney and Mrs. W. A. Dorr went beloSv last Saturday to visit friends for a few davs. The Elk River Mar of last week devotes a column of its space to Princeton Items.' Some of said items were quite interesting reading. Local politics are exceedingly quiet this fall, and there i* every indication of their remaining so until about a year hence. Then look out for squalls. We heard a well-informed Green bush man remark, the.other day, that that town would claim the school superintendent this fall, and would present the name of a lady, one possess ing all the requisite qualifications, for the position. Mr. B. M. VanAlstiue, Mr. H. B. Cowles' business partner, is a quiet, unassuming gentleman, who by hisMille courteous demeanor to all with whpm he has had any dealings has won for himself golden op^u'ous in this com munity. NO. 41. THE "OLD RELIABLE" STORE. The Largest, Showiest and Best Assort ed Stock of Go^ds Ever Brought Into Princeton. fj**fcw A Seeing is believing, and if .you think the above headlines ate simply for the purpose of deceiving you, come and see for yourself and be convinced. Fi two weeks past Mr. Rines has had a four horse team on the road con stantly hauling frieght in from Elk Riverand Still there's tons of heavy merchandise coming. On entering tin* store you are confronted with stacks of calicoes, blankets, rugs ami woolen goods, to the right and to the left of the counters and improvised table are literally covered all over with piles of prints, linens, ladies' dress goods, mil linery goods, cloaks, overskirts, edg ings, trimmings, cutis, collars, &c, &c. Every inch of space on the shelves is occupied the Hues are loaded down with shawls, scarfs, mufflers and gloves. But we have neither time nor space to enumerate. There are verv few retail stores in either St. Paul or Minneapolis that can make as good a display as the Old Reliable. Mr. Rines assures us that he will dispose of his immense stock at less than St. Paul and Minneapolis retail figures. buys for cash and can afford to do sc Threshing machines are pretty thick 'round Princeton just now. Mr. C. H. Rines has placed a splen did street lamp in front of his store. We hope every other business man in town will follow Mr. Rine's example. To the gentlemen who so kindly as sisted us in moving our office, last Sa turday we return our sincere thanks, and shall reciprocate whenever op portunity offers. About two score of Princetonians "took in" the circus at Elk River, on Monday. Spencer Brook, Wyanett, Baldwin and Livonia were also well represented. Mrs. C. Riaes thinks she has got the nicest easy chair there is in Princeton. Undoubtedly it is a beat ty. She received it as a present from her husband. Mr. T. H. Caley has been getting considerable labor-saving machinery for his blacksmith shop of late. Tom can boast of one of the best arranged and completest blacksmith shops in, this portion of the state. A crew of about 50 menWash burn's, Al Gowen's, John and Dan Rollin's, Phil brick's and Goss & Dun ham'sleft here on Thursday morn ing to repair the Tibbett's Brook dams. John Jameson's new blacksmith shop will soon be completed. Princ ton and the surrounding country are increasing in population yearly and we think there will be business enough for all the shopsespecially during the winter seasor. Could you run a store bill with any merchant in town for two or three years, never paying a cent? No, not much, you conldn't. Then why im pose upon the printer by nelgectin* for years to pay him what you honest lv owe him? Cap. Cole was in town Saturday he reports having ,found"Dan Caley out on the prairie, west of St. Cloud, and "Set" him on the right road to lis destination. Dan had been paying too much attention to that state map which he carried along with him and, of course, got lost. A U. S. deputy marshall arrived in town on Saturday, and subpoenaed Postmaster Ross, B. M. VanAlstine, Elmer Whitney and ye editor to be in attendance ou the U. S. district court, at St. Paul, by 6 p. aj. on the 6th inst., to give evidence in relation the post office robbery at this place, last spring. Our old friend J. L. Cater and Sheriff Howard are two of the most enthusiastic Gilman men in this upper country. If Gilman does not carry Lacs county by a good majority it will not because of any lack of ef fort on the part of the tvrQ above mentioned gentlemen.
