WAVERLY, Wright County, Mine, Oct 21,
1878.I took to the station one load of
wheat which the bayar told me would hardly
go No. i Now, the threshers who threshed
my wheat pronounced my wheut aa good as
they threshed. I lofnsed to tike No. 4 price,
then 3 7 cents psr buhel. I look my load of
wheat to Winstead and had giound thiity
bushe ls of this Bame (hardly N 4) wheat,
and my returns were, 1,290 pounds of flour,
217 pounds of shorts, 270 pounds of bran.
Now, flour sold for 2% cents per pound,

he has only a sm^ll interest in a mill (taken
from his speech at Anoka), and then he has
the audacity to defend the Milleis' associa-
tion, sajing they are gentlemen. Would
have mida a better impression on his Repub-
lican friends if he told the truth and de
nounced the thieves and swindler s. They
are robbing the farmers of th mere pittance
left this haivest. But I suppose part of the
above profits he is distributing amongst cor-
rupt politicians. Very truly yours, a Repub-
Washburn's Swindlina Failure.
The following communication is from a
prominent Republican who has in years past
been active in the politics of the State. It
speaks for itself:
To the Editor of the Globe.
Ask Washburn whether it wa3 not a fact
that, after he made his assignment in 187 4
or 1675, that by his management, his as
signees, in invoicing his assets, valued all his
property at flora one-fourth to one-halt more
than its real value, and then said to the
creditors, take this property at the appraise-
ment, and we will allow you par for Mr.
Washburn's paper? and did not many of
them receive it and thn sell the proceeds for
two-thirds of their original claim? and did
not his assignees in this way pay off Mr
Washburn's debts, amounting to something
over $100,000, with property that was not in
reality worth over and could not have been
sold for more than fifty or six'y thousand
dollars? and weie there not several men in
Minneapolis who bought up Mr.
Washburn's paper at from 5 0 to 7 5 cents
on the dollar, and even less, and then re
ceived this highly caluecl property at the in-
voice price, and then sold it for from 2 5 to
3 3 per cent, less than it was iece ve for?
Did not laboring men who had been to
work for Mr. Washburn all the summer,
previo us to his
ailure, and to whom was
indebted for most of their summer's ser-
vice s, have to cell their claims for what they
could realize for them in cash, in order to
Did or did not Mr. Washburn, by his as
signment, virtually defraud his creditors by
in this way compelling them to take prop-
erty for much less than its value, and never
paying them, afterwards?
If all the business transactions were fair,
square, and he paid dollar for dollar on his
liabilities, and was so soon enabled to go
into business again on a grander scale than
ever, why eoulJ he not pay off all these
claims himself wilhout an assignment?
If he was so close pressed, could not meet
his liabilities, was compelled to make an as
signment, yet paid "dollar for dollar," and
had money enough left to take a trip to
Europe, spend the best part of a year's time
and much money in traveling, why was he
not able to carry on his business without an

Did not Mr. Washburn tell a prominent
Republican, after hia return from Europe,
that it was nobody's dd business whose

to Bell their claims against him for less than
their face, rather than take what was offered
them, he did not care a cuss for them.

least one of the most dangerous political
rings that can exist, of which W. D. Wash

ST. PAUL, Oct. 22.From this morning's

tations as follows:
No. lhard
No.i Difference
$1 01 84
Seventeen cents per bushel more for No. 1
hard than for No. 1.
The enqniry is respectfully submitted, has
the Minneapolis Millers' association any
grade known as No. 1 hard?
the Minneapolis Millers' association
desire the farmers to know that more than
one-half of all the wheat sold on the lines of
the St. Paul & Pacific and Noithern Pacific
railroads, including all grades, will sell for
No. 1 hard either in St PafB or Milwaukee?
Why do the Minneapolis Millere' associ-
ation pay 1 0 cents more per bushel for some
grades of wheat on lines .f the Northern
Pacific aid Minnesota Westera railway,
than they do on main and branch lines of
the St Paul & Pacific railroad?
A early and comprehensive reply to the
foregoing conundrums is respectfully so-
licited. Yours truly,
Edison, Asserts A{/aln that He Has Dis
covered JJow to Practically Divide the
Electric Liaht.
[New York" Herald.]
The tierce denunciations of the gas com
panies at the latest discovery of Mr. Edison,
have produced no effect on the serenity of
the Menlo Park hboratory. When Edison
was told that eminent scientists and promi
nent gas company officials pronounced his
alleged discovery concerning the eleotric
light a sham, au offered to prove by figures
and facts that division of the electric light to
any piactical extent was impossibl e, he
smil ed imperturbably and gave orders that a
new eighty horse power engine be at once
placed in operation and that more wuikmen
be added to the number already engaged in
manufacturing the apparatus.
A Herald reporter yesterday visited the
laboratory to learn the progress of the in
ventio n. Mi. Edison had gone to New
York, and was not expected back until
night. His numerous workmen, however,
were busily engaged at their different plaes.
O the door leading to the laboratory the
repoiter noticed a large placard announcing
that there was positively no admittance. I
bei ng such a striking departure from the
usual freedom hitherto accorded all who vis
ited the place, he asked an assistant the
cause of the prohibition. "It' on
account of th electric light," said
the young man. "Since it became known
that Mr. Edison had made his discovery, the
laboratory has been thronged at nearly all
hours of the day with visitors anxious to see
it. W were obliged to close the doors be
cause the foreign paten ts have not yet been
heard fro m. I a coup le of weeks, however,
perhaps less, all will be free again, and then
tho skeptics may see for themselves but un
til then nobody will be allowed to see it."
"But scientific men say that the thing is
impossible," observed the leporter.
"And so they said the quadruplex telegraph
was impossible,"' answered the assi-tant.
"Why, when Mr Edison announced
that he had succeeded in sending
four messages on one wire at the
same time in opposito directions, scientific
men laughed outright and called him a mad
man. Again, when he said that he could
talk through a telegraph wire, and in proof
of the same showed his telephone, they
would not believe it until they tried it over
and over again, and found it as he said and
again, when said he would make it repro
duce the human voice, they once more called
him crazy. But, notwithstanding all they
said, the phonograph, the telephone and the
quadrupl ex are to-day admitted facts. Let
them say what they please," continued the
assistant, "we, who know what Mr. Edison is
doing, are satisfied that he has succeeded."
A a late hour the professor returned from
New York. The reporter met him at the de
pot and asked him how he was progressing
with the practical division of the electric
light. "Everything is going along all right,"
answered the inventor.
"Have you heard what scientific men say
abo ut it?" asked the reporter.
"What do they say?" inquired the in
'That it i3 impossible."
"Well, we will see," was Mr. Edison's
smiling rejoinder, as he prepared to go.
"They say that the electric light will not
bear subdivision except at an enormous sa
rifice of illuminating power," continued the
"There is no sacifice of power in this dis
covery," answered the inventor. "Those
who are denouncing it as impossible are
predicating on what they have not seen and
do not understand. The invention is a new
departure. I believe that I have succeeded
beyond all doubt. I a little while all who
doubt it may see for themselve s. The as
sertions that are made in opposition are
based on systems that have been tried and
found defective. I a little whi le I will light
up all the houses in Menlo park, and then
scientific men can, if they desire, come and
see. A present, however, I can say no more
than that we are bard at woik on it in the
laboratory and mean to lose no time." Bid
ding the reporter good night the inventor
then hurried to his laboratory.
A family of emigrants, on the way to Texa

her along. Down with Washburn and the win

It Is Not the Accuracy of tho Kettle, but
the Way it is BandiedA Pat Job
on the Fanners by the "Washburn Ring.
The Hennepin county grangers last week ap
pointed a committee to investigate the
swindling brass kettles and report.
The committee made one test and reported
showing a difference of from one to two and a
half pounds per bushel between the brass ket
tles and the half bushel. The same committee
now makes another test and reports as follows:
the Farmers' Convention of Hennepin
The undersigned, members of the committee
appointed by your convention on Monday, the
14th inst., to compare the brass tester used by
the Millers' asssciation with the sealed half
bushel in the possession of the county, respect
fully beg leave to reoorfc that in accordance
with their instructions they provided them
selves with a pair of scales verified by the
county treasurer, and the sealed half bushel
belonging to the county, and made tests as fol
The wheat by the first teat weighed fifty
eight pounds and thirteen ounces by the sealed
half-bushel. the tester, fifty-eight pounds
and twelve ounces.
Weight by half-bushel, fifty-four pounds and
one ounce tester, the same.
the half-bushel, fifty-five pounds and
twelve ounces tester, the same.
the half-bushel, fifty-five pounds and ten
ounces tester, fifty-five pounds.
the sealed half-bushel, fifty-six pounds
and three ounces tester, the same.
Whenever difference existed between the
tester- and the half bushel, we found that it
was occa ioned by dirty wheat, which inter
fered with the filling of the tester. But in all
cases of clean wheat, the half bushel and tester
being filled uniformly, the results were the
same, and vindicated the correctness of the
tester. W are theretore of the opinion that in
the case of clean grain the tester used by the
millers is correct, giving the exact weight of
the grain in accordance with the sealed half
bushel in possession of the county.
We also examined the inspector's books, and
found that in grading the wheat he has given
No. 2 grade to wheat weighing 55% pounds to
the bushel, substituting only from two to
thiee pounds to the bushel for the deficiency
in weuht. Thus by throw irrg in two or three
pounds to tho bushel, the farmers have re
ceived No. 2 grade for wheat which under the
rules would be graded as No. 3
Respectfully, JAS. HAMILTON,
There is undoubtedly a history relative to
this test and the report in question. Th tesj
appears to have been a secret affair and manip
ulated by the ring, but even then
they could not secure a report which
makes the little brass swindler accurate, as out
of five tests the committee certify that the
brass kettle was twice a fraud.
As the GLOBS has already explained, such a
te*t proves nothing. Th brass kettles can
probably be used honestly but they arc suscep
tible of manipulation. I a committee should
meet and solemnly announce that the kettles
are made of brass, would that
hlp the ring thieves? Th swindle is in the
handling of the kettle, and the small size
enables the expert to ch'jat
on the grade, as it
would be impossible to do with a half bushel,
or by the pound. We have given repeated in
stances where the same wheat went different
grades in diffeicnt testeis, and even in the
same tester at different times, proving that the
tiick is iu the manipulation. Take this instance:
Levi Bailey wished to ascertain the grade and
the best maiket for his wheat. accordingly
took a sack and went to Langdon, on the
M. & St. railroad. Here it was put in the
accurate brass kettle and went 55 lbs., which
would make it No 8. Then he took the
same wheat to a warehouse at Newport and
applied the brass kettle, and*it went 57 pounds,
giving him No. 2. Then he went to the New
port elevator and again that infallible brass
kettle was applied and it went 59 pounds, but
the agent explained that his tester showed a
pound too much and that 58 pounds was all he
could allow him. This gave him No. 1 grade.
Here were three of these accurate little jokers
giving different weights.
We could continue such illustrations almost
indefinitely, but it is unnecessary. Th peo
ple understand the game of the Washburn
gang of swindlers and robbers, and cannot
have dust thrown in their eyes by tho howl of
the ring organs over this report. N committee
can or will report that an expert cannot steal a
grade by the use of the swindling brass kettle.
That is notorious and has been conclusively
The swindling brass kettle, and Washburn,
must go.

ELK RIVER, Oct. 22.Music hall was well

short time previo us and edified a few of the
Washburnites (chief among whom was that
lilliputian who so ably misrepresented this
district in the State Senate last winter), in
his usual characteristic style of falsehood,
misrepresentation and billingsgate. Mr.

I a sure, to the entire satisfaction of all
who heard him. The impression made was
a good one, and one that will last till the
contest closes at the ballot box. The change
now being effected by the convincing logic
of Mr Donnelly is not a mire temporary
thing, but permanent, enduring, and thouh
success may not crown his efforts in this
