About a score of Chinese cheap laborers
have arrived at the New Albany (Ind.) glass
works of Da Pauw & Co. to take the place
of white workmen who exercised their privi
lege of voting the Democratic ticket on the
12th inst. This is bat the beginning of the
end that the Republicans hope to attain if
they are retained in power—the substitution
of servile for free labor. Laboring men
should remember thia when they come to
east their votes on Tuesday next.
Mb. Hesing. the Republican boss of Chi
cago, who has but recently emerged from
the county jail, where he wassentenoed for
complicity in the whisky fraud, has' issued
orders to all government officers to have
their eubordinntes at the polls all day on
Tuesday, to work for the success of the Re
publioan tioket. Despite Mr. Hayes' civil

obeyed. All government officers bow to his

Marshall Jewell's attempt to steal the vote of
Florida by colonizing railroad laborers at
Jacksonville and Fernandina. The men
were seen in these towns in close converse
with the Republican members. They ad
mitted that they were not going to work on
any railroad, but were being maintained by
friends. The fri«nds in question n« doubt
procured the means for the support of these
repeaters through the chairman of the Na
tional Republican oo ruin it tee.
Thk Ohioago Twies asserts that it will be
impossible for more than half of the voters
of that oity to oast their votes
on Tuesday, on account of the
failure of the Republican board of coun
ty ooxnmissionbH to provide adequate poll
ing places. The registration is but little
over sixty-eigat thousand, a fraction more
than one in nine of the population as ascer
tained by the census. If a fair election was
held in Chicago a substantial Democratic
majority would be oast, but it is not the
purpose of the Republican managers to per
mit of this.
Betublil 1 ans oonoede that the Democratic
demonstration at Minneapolis Wednesday
night eclipsed anything heretofore seen in
this region. Fully twenty-five hundred at
tempted to go np from St. Paul, and ever
fifteen hundred succeeded in obtaining
transportation. Great as was the display
the demonstration in St. Paul Saturday
night will eclipse it.
Thebe seems to be little or no opposition
t■> the text book aots. Those who opposed
th-'ui originally join with their original
friends in urging the retention,as any change
now wonld involve a seriona and unnecessary
tax upon the public, and in all probability
result in the introduction of less satisfactory
books. The publio are tranquil and conten
ted now and should not vote to di Inge the
State with a gang of hungry book agents.
See that your ballots read "In favor of the

The Globe baa reliable information that
a large nnmber of colored men have regis
tered both in St. Paul and Minneapolis with
a view to repeating by voting in both cities
It will be oondacive to the health and hap
piness of the colored brethren to oall a halt
right where they are. They have already per
petrated a crime by their doable registration,
and if they expect to perpetrate the farther
crime of repeating with impunity they are
terribly mistaken. The Democratic vigilance
committees propose to protect the parity < f
the ballot box from the sooandrelism whioh
is planned, and the mokes oan rest assured
that they'll do it.
Some renegade Democrat, or more likely
an office-seeking Republican, assails John
Grace through the colums of a morning Re
publican paper because he was once in
dicted while serving as sheriff. Primarily
aa indictment per se counts but little. The
grand jury is a star ohamber tribunal where
tbe aoousod is denied the opportunity of a
defense, and the finding of that body simply
amounts to the declaration that the accused
U entitled to be heard before a jury of his
peers. Mr. Graoe was indioted on a techni
cality, because he drew his deputies pay in
bulk and settled with them, instead of each
one receipting direct. Tho charge was so
evidently malioious and frivolous that a full
bench of judges promptly quashed the md
d ctment, without even dignifying it by a
hearing. There was no charge of malfeas
ance or corruption in office, but a Repub
lican grand jury took that method of smiroh
ing a faithful public officer for the purpose
of oreating a little political capital. Repub
lican officials have done the same thing be
fore and since the indiotment, which now so
shocks Republican sensibilities, without a
word of oensure. He did not com
pel bis subordinates to sign vouch
ers in blank as one of his
critics was wont to do when postmaster,
ailing them up and collecting pay in ex-
Cisa of the salary allowed. The Republi
cans who profess to be shocked at this mali
oious aud technical indictment had bettei
look to their own tioket. They will find
thereon the name of a man who was not
only indicted but convicted and served bis
sentence in jail. A little purification in that
direction might be as well as the consider"
ation of the "fine points" made against the
Democratic nominee for sheriff.
In alluding to the letter of Gen. Garfleld
in favor of the employment of Chinese la
bor "in order that the interests of the manu
facturers may be conserved," the Chicago
la spite of hi* record, the Democratio mana
gers have bad the barefaced impudence to pub
lish a forged letter patting into Gatfield's
month words which are flatly contradicted by
his letter of acceptance and by his speeches
and votes in Congress.
Let us see whether Mr. Garfield's letter is
"flatly contradicted by bis speeches and votes
in Congress." Oa the 28th of January,
1879, when the bill to restrict Chinese emi
gration was before the House, aud the ques
tion recurred on its passage, the following
proceedings were had:
The Speaker—The question now is on the
engrossment and third reading of the bill as
Mr. Garfieiti—lank unanimous consent, Mr.
Speaker, to offer an amendment—that tbi* bill
shall not take cffeot until dne notice has b oa
given to China, according to the aiage* of in
ternational law, of the termination of the
treaty against which it is a palpable and flat
The Speaker—That is in the nature of de
Mt. Garfield —My amendment will b3 re
ceived unless this bill is merely tor party cap i
A vote was then taken on the bill, and it was
Dsssed—yeas, 155; nays, 72. Mr. Gaifield was
present bat dodged the vote.
Again on the 22d of February the bill was
returned to the House from the Senate with
amendments. Mr. Willis, of Eentuoky, de
manded the previous question on its passage.
The Congressional Record gives the dobate
on the motion as follows:
Hr. White, of Pennsylvania—l move that
the House do now adjourn.
Mr. liuttrell—l wish the House to take no
tice that it is a Republican who tries to defeat
Mr. White—l am opposed to this bill, and do
not care who knows it.
Mr. Wilson—ln the event of the proposition
to adjourn being voted down, I desire
to call for the reading of the sixth
article of the treaty with China, referred to in
Mr. Garfield—l reserve the right to call for
separate votes on the amendments.
Mr. Garfield, on the direct vote to
lay the bill un the table, and thus kill it, voted
On the Ist of March, when the vote was taken
on the question, "Will the House, ou a re con
sideraiion, pass this bill, notwithstanding the
objections of the President," Mr. Garfield
Previous to these debates, in June, 1874,
Mr. Garfield again put himself on
record as favorable to Chinese
labor. The bill making an appropria
tion for the Mare Island navy
yard was nnder discussion, when Mr. Lut
trell, of California, arose and said:
I offer the following amendment to come in
at the end of the clause: "Provided that no
Chinese or coolie labor shall be so employed at
to displace white labor."
Mr. Garfleld—l make the point of order that
the amendment changes existing law.

Here is the evidence, taken from the rec-

ords of Congress, whioh proves that in tbiee
separate instances Mr. Garfield pronounoed
in favor of Obinese oheap labor as against
the labor ot white men. Whether he wrote
the Morey letter or not is immaterial. He is
convicted of entertaining the sentiments ex
pressed in it by his own words and votes in
the House of Representatives, and neither
he nor his friends dare deny it.
When a working man comes to cast
his ballot on Tuesday next he should
remember that Mr. Garfleld has spoken and
voted to degrade him by compelling him to
compete with the pauper labor of Asia, and
has steadfastly refused to offer him any pro
tection against a hoide of heathen workmen
who can live on ten cents a day and yet ac

The Democrats having an overwhelming
majority in tbia city the Ec
pnblioans have -one simple game,
and that is to divide and conquer. In this
game they are aided by a few pseudo Demo
crats who are doing what they oan to turn
the county over to the political enemy. It
is as well to make the test next Tuesday as
at any time. Gen. Hancock's election is
practically assured, and those Democrats
who wish to step out of the ranks when the
party is marshalled in battle array and about
to achieve a victory, should be treated bh
deserters and meet the fate of deserters.
There will be an abundance of Democrats
after Hancock'a election, and it is just as
well to make the issue. Those who are not
foi.- us are against us, and the sooner those
who propose to fight the battle of the Dem
ocracy know their forces, and who can bo re
lied upon, the better. No double game will
win. Let those who do not choose to fight with
as, fight against us, and then we know where
It is, of course, the privilege of the free
and independent voter to scratch his ticket.
That may at times be oommendable, but
when it comes to an effort to turn over a po
litical party, by treachery, to the enemy that
is base treason. The Demoorrtio tioket in
Ramßey county will be eleoted next Tuesday
triumphantly. It is only a question as to
the majority, and those who wish to depart
and join tbe defeated party can have the
privilege. It is preferable to swell the ma
jority of course, but it is better that it should
be reduced if thereby treason is made odious
and when viotory perches on the Democratic
banner there will simply be a smaller num
ber upon whom the emblem will rest, " Well
done thou good and faithful servant, enter
thoa into the joy of thy Lord."
VOTJB FOR WMIjLS.
Every Democrat in the First District
should vote for H. R. Wells for Congress.
He is an able and gallant gentleman, and if
he gets his party support will obtain his
election. The fight is really between the
Wells and Dunnell factions. Ward is out of
the question, and Wells is the coming mac.
Democrats of the First District—stand by
your nominee, and you will elect him.
Okb of the most disreputable election
eering dodges that can be resorted to is the
appeal of a supposed social and benevoleDt
secret association for rotes for a "brother."
The following, which is being circulated in
behalf of the Republican nominee for sher
iff, needs no other comment than its simple
St. Paul. Oct. 22, 18S0.
Brother: Oar worthy brother Fred Bichter,
who is now a candidate for the office of sheriff,
has been a member of Schiller Grove No. 3, is
now P. N. A., and nan always worked faith
fully for the interest of the order.
You could do Brother Eichtcr a great favor
by seeing to it, that your name and the names
of your friends are on the poll list on next
Tuesday. And on Tuesday, November 2,
please spend an hour or two at the polls and
help to elect a brother who is in all respects
worthy of the name and the office. Please
oonsider this strictly private!
Secretary Schiller Grove No. 3, U.A.O.D.
Bill Washbobn, bribe-giver, oorruptlon
ist and pine land robber, was evidently
alarmed by the great demonstration in Min
neapolis Wednesday night. He came to St.
Paul early in the day and summoned the
moss oovered McLaren and other office
holding henchmen for a secret council.
Nearly the entire diy was spent in secret and
gloomy conclave. The bribe-giver begged
for aid to save him from defeat. He urged
the office holding gang to come
to bis rescue or he would be lost.
He resolved, of course, to fall back on his
sole reliance—swag. He is in an excellent
fracue of mind, and any of the boys who
have not scoured their pay, should call on
him direct, or if he cannot be found, make
their applications to that champion rascal—
Charley Johnson, who is the intermediate
briber. He will bJeed freely to-day, but be
sure that your ballots next Tuesday bear the
name of Henry H. Sibley.
Washbubn, the bribe giver, distributed five
or six thousand copies of the Minneapolis
Tribune in St. Paul yesterday. The paper
published illustrations from the rogues gal
lery, and made a creditable sppearanoe as a
police gazette. The public should not olass
the illlustration of "Jones the fish man,',
which also appeared in the Tribune, with the
rogues gallery. Mr. Jones is a reputable
citizen and is not allied to the gang who were
so profusely illustrated.
~We trust Bill Washburn, the bribe giver,
will continue his free distribution of the
Minneapolis Tribune in St. Paul. A3 his
great achievement in Congress bas been the
securing of an extension of the postal cai
system from Sparta, Wis., to Minneapolis*
that paper is very competent to tell the peo
pie of St. Paul why they ought to vote for
the bribe giver.
Pbivate Dalzell has t^ken the stump in
Pennsylvania in favor of Garfield. This
ought to ensure a good majority in the Key
stone State for the hero of Gettysburg.
An Interesting Contempt Oass.
The supremo court of the State yesterday
issued its order citing City Treasurer
Rer.z to show cause why he should not be pun
ished for contempt. It appears that the board
of public works made aa ssaesement for grad
ing Mackubin street, which property owners
claimed to be erroneous. They accordingly
sued out a writ < f c; rtiorari in the supreme
court, running to the board, to remove the as
sessment iuto the court for review. Tne city
authorities, notwithstanding the writ
had been served, together with
a notification to the city, issued a warrant
to collect the assessment. The supreme court,
therefore, on motion of Mr. Beal-». attorney for
the contesting lot owners, ha* issued its order
for the city treasurer to show cause why he
should not be punished for contempt for pro
ceeding under the city warrant to collect the
assessment. The matter of the oertiorari and
the contempt will be argued on tha 10th of

Another big crew of raftsmen came up from
Bead's yesterday morning and went home to
Eau Claire yesterday afternoon. They find
getting back from a rafting trip by rail to
be much eusir than the old time style of paying
stage fare and then helping to pull the stage.
The petrefactions and other curiosities from
the Bad Land* which filled a car standing in
the Northern Pacific yard a few days ago wore
collected for President Billings, of the North
era Pacific company, who will present them to
the Park commissioners of New York city for
exhibition in Central Park.
A Bismarck dispatch of yesterday announced
the arrival there from above of the steamers
Gen. Terry, Gen. Meade and Rosebud. Yester
day afternoon the Terry was loading for Buford
and the others for down river. The Rosebud
brought a large party of mechanics who have
been employed during the sammer at Fort As
siniboine and who will arrive here to-morrow
The Northern Pacific agricultural exhibition
car will arrive here today, by the morning
train in on the I & fil division. This car has,
since it left St. Paul, been hauled over 5,000
miles and has been visited by hundreds and
thousand* at all the principal towns and cities
along its route. Tracy Metcalf, E^q.,
who visited it in Chicago, when on its return
trip, says the exhibition appeared as fresh and
attractive as when the car left here two months
ago. At the Illinois and lowa town- where the
car has been stopped on its route from Chicago
to St. Paul.it has drawn crowds equally curious
"and interested with those which thronged it
day after day in New England and the Oana
das. To give people here an opportunity of
witnessing how the products of the new North
west bear long transportation, the car will be
open to visitors here all day to-day.

Changes in Northern Pacific Staff,
The following paragraph from the Chicag
Tribune of Wednesday may be based on rumors
which have been heard here, but reads as if it
was "by authority:"
"It is reported that Mr. Horace A. Towne,
superintendent of the Northern Pacific rail
road, has or is about to resign his pssiiion. It,
is alto reported that other changes among the
general officers of that road are about to be
made. From what can be learned it . appears
that Mr. H. E. Sargent, the general manager
of the road, was dissatisfied with Mr. Towne
and some of the other general officers, but
for some reason or other he was
unable to have them replaced. Mr. Sargent
went East about a wetk ago to have a
consultation with the presi dent and directors
of his road, evidently for the purpose of hav
ing the matter adjusted in some way or other.
The conference seem? to have resulted in con
vincing the directors .of the Northern Pic fie
that General Manager Sargent has been doing
his level best to make their enterprise a suc
cess, and that in order to aid him in his effort
it would be necessary to give him full soope as
far as the management of the road was con
cerned, and that it was necessary that all bis
subordinates should be in full accord with
