day's session of the W. C. T. U. was a busy j
one. Reports of departments were full j
and interesting, among them some on !
southern work presented by Miss S. F. j
Chapin; of works among the Germans by :
Mrs. Skelton, of Ohio. Miss Jennie Smith, i
superintendent of railroad work, gave an ;
account of her successful labors, reading !
a letter of greeting and . sympathy from !
the brotherhood of engineers just closing
their international convention. Miss
Smith paid a high tribute to the president j
and officers of the Baltimore and Ohio rail- i
way for co-operation in her work among
the employes. The various reports were
received with enthusiasm. The interest of
the convention deepens daily.
Richmond, Va., Oct. 26.—In the Episco- j
pal church congress to-day "powers of '
standing committees" « as discussed; "in-!
spiration of the scripture'' was the sub
ject discussed in the evening session.
■Ms. Slather's Lealt.
The audience that greeted Miss Marga- '
ret Mather last evening was an earnest of I
the appreciation with which her eiloris to I
please the public are received. The play i
of "Leah, theForsaken," is not of a char- !
acter that pleases a majority. It is incon- !
gruous; its situations straiaed;it3 dialogue !
jerky and violently passionate, while
its climaxes are not at all please
ing except to those fond of intensj dec
lamation. Miss * Mather in the title role
was scarcely as attractive as she has ap
peared in her more refined characters j
heretofore, and although she labored hard |
she failed to invest the role with the charm
that is native to her. Her elocution was at
times overdone, especially in the scene
before Rudolph's door, in which she al
lowed her emotions to overcome her
sooner than a proper app reciation of the
character required. The curse scene was
an excellent piece of tragic acting, and
served to evoke the heartiest applause.
While there were many excellencies in the
performance it was not an even one as a
whole, and might have been greatly im
proved. Mr. Salvini took the part of
Rudolph acceptably, and Mr. Levick was
admirable as Nathan.
To-night Miss Mather will appear as
Rosalind in "As You Like It," a character
much better fitted for her than Leah.

The Author of the Lie t,n Barnum Exposed.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Morbis, Oct. 26.—I wi3h to put as mis
erable a liar as ever trod the earth in his
proper light before the world. I refer to
one Charles A. Gilman, who, by the suffer
ance of a deceived people, holds the office
of lieutenant-governor of Minnesota.
Prior to the public coming of the lie con
cerning the Hon. E. P. Barnum selling out
to Mr. Kindred he, Charles A. Gilman, the
father of the lie itself.wrote a letter signed
by himself to R. C. Moore of Morris, who
was a candidate before the Democratic
congressional convention at Fergus Falls,
informing him authoritatively that Mr.Bar
num had sold to Mr. Kindred and naming
the . price. When i' Mr.; Charles Gilman
wrote the letter he knew that
for the sake of .. a , hoped
for political injury to Mr. Kindred he
was deliberately coining a damnable lie
against the integrity of two men whose
moral character is as high above his own '
as is that of the Angel Gabriel over that '
of the lost soul of Judas Iscariot. In the
language of Shakspeare, "he told a lie, a !
damned, a wicked lie," and I would add j
that In knew at the time lie wrote tho lie
that he lied. !
As one who wishes to hold something of
: respect for Mr. Nelson, I trust he has no
share in this infamy for it is a veritable
boomerang which means death to the
cause this contemptible little liar has es
poused. ■ Mokbis Citizen.

know my name you have it and are at per
fect liberty to give it to him.
i Fergus FallsJake Austi n's Kindred Flag
For the second time I have had an op
portunity to spend a few hours in Fergus
Fallr, the county seat of Otter Tail county,
and far the second time I have been forci
bly impressed with the fact that that city
stands pre-eminent as the reading interi
or city in the state of Minnesota.
Settled by intelligent, enterpis
ing, pushing men, in the center of jan agri
cultural district which is an empire of
j itself, with a water power unsurpassed
even by the falls of St. Anthony, I hazard
nothing in predicting that next to St. Paul
and Minneapolis it will take position as
the leading city in • the state. Othei
towns may enjoy a greater temporary
boom but Fergus Falls has the basis for
permanent prosperity. It already eon
tains nearly five thousand population.
The daily morning Telegram is a seven
column folio sheet which marks the enter
prise of thy place and whoso well filled ad
vertising column testifies to the wide awake
character of the business men of that thriv
! ing city. .Two mammoth hotels are in
' process of erection, the cost of one with
j furnishing, approximating $100,000, and
i the other £00,000. It is supplied with tele
! phone exchange, is introducing the electric
! light and indulging in all "modern im
: provements." Its manufacturing enter
'■ prises are already well advanced and in
i elude among them one of the most im
. proved roller flour mills in the country
; with a capacity of 400 barrels per day. It
; is the end of a division on the main line of
! the St. Paul and Manitoba road and the
I Northern Pacific enters it with two
j branches, while the Milwaukee and St.
• Paul .will reach it with, a branch
| another year. In . short I regard
! Fergus Falls as the typical place to apply
| Horace Greeley's famous advice to "Go
j west, young man, and grow up with the
] country." The man wno settles in Fergus
• Falls to-day and does not secure a com
petency within ten years will only have
himself to blame. , " i-"^- 1: ";v

ed, new and substantial business blocks
springing up in all directions.
, "Oh, nothing in particular," : was the re
ply, "except there's Jake Austin's flag."

when he had become so excited that he
mounted the platform and undertook to
make a -speech . for Nelson, but waa only
able to /aake himself conspicuous in the
confusion by his wild gesticulations which
were made so promiscuously that he
nearly knocked Comstock off the platform.
I was accordingly a little suspicious
that my friend was indulging in a '. practi
cal joke. My inquiries developed the fact
that the flag is styled * Jake Austin's Kin
dred flag and that * appellation has gone
out all over that section and poor Jake is
credited with having gone over to Kindred.
It is almost in front of - his residence and
deny it as he will, I am afraid ho cannot
relieve himself from the credit of that flag
unless he should demonstrate to the contra
ry by tearing it down." State Treasurer
Kittleson, Albert Scheffer and quite a r par
ty were in Fergus on Wednesday and
Jake had assured them that
Kindred stock . was * below par in that
town, and invited some of them to come
up and address a Nelson meeting, but the
first thing which met the gaze of the aston.
ished visitors was this mammoth flag,
almost in front of Jake's premises, read
C. F. Kindeed.
They took Jake to task kindly, but sor
rowfully, for his misrepresentation, and
as they could see no Nelson banner flung
to the breeze his reputation for correct
statements suffered considerably. His
faltering explanation was received in
silence and the visitors left town impressed
with the idea that there is a bigger Kin
dred boom in Fergus than outsiders had
imagined. Jake Austin's close identifica
tion with that flag is bound to make him
famous, and the local historian of Otter
Tail county who writes of the cam
paign of 1882 will undoubtedly head
line one of his pages, "Jake Austin's Fa
mous Kindred Flag."
It will now be in order for the Nelson
gang to start the story that Kindred has
emptied the whole barrel into his (Jake's)
pockets. " H. P. H.
A Slim Nelstn Meeting— Cheered*
[Special Telegram to the Globe.J
Bueckenbidge, Minn., OcJ. 26.The
Nelson meeting held here to-night drew a
small crowd, about two-thirds Kindred, the
balance Nelson, or indifferent, being most
ly parties from Wahpeton, Dakota, on the
opposite side of the river. A brass band
from Wahpeton was in attendance, but the
combined attractions failed to fill the hall.
S. G. Comstock, the oily gammon of
Moorhead, led off in one of his frank, !
' friendly sort of speeches, in which he tried
hard to stab Kindred under the fifth rib
while professing the kindest feelings to
wards him. '■ '•
Reynolds, of Crookston, followed in a
| long and wearisome harangue in the Meth
1 odist'^* exhor style. -He claimed to
be a Dane, and spent much time
i in . enlarging ■ • •• on that fact.
i His misstatements were appalling, but not
' so much so as his ceaseless flow of talk,

; He called upon the Hon. Sorea Listoe, who
was present, to afBrm tha truth of some!
statement made by him,(Reynolds), whic h,
| to his surprise, Listoe did, by assuring
him he was stating what were utterly aud
easily proven falsehoods. Reynolds drop
ped that part of his subject like a hot po
tato, and drizzled on a while, finally giv
ing way to Knute Nelson, who spoke a few
minutes, making, both in speech and ap
pearance, an impression of painful insig -
nificance. When the speakers mentioned
Kindred's name it was received with loud
applause, which made it rather difficult to
j abuse him effectually. The result of the
meeting is generally regarded as greatly
ping Kindred's propects here. "**

OaxcNvniB, Oct. —The report of the

It is true that Judge Reynolds made a
very favorable impression upon tho audi
ence, because everybody that had any
judgment would at once understand that
he is a much better man than -Knuty.
.It is also true that W. 13. Dow asked Mr.
Nelson, on the part of the people of Big
Stone county, questions in regard to his
opinions of the legislative ticket, and that
Mr. Nelson refused to answer by saying that
he did not meddle in local contests, which
is a base lie from the very lips of Mr. Nel
son, as he has instructed ■ his friends all
over the Forty-second district to vote for
and advocate C. F. Washburn and do all in
their power to injure Hon. W. H. Camp

Knute Nelson will have no more ques
tions put to him ' by the people of Big

"didn't come here to be catechized". when
the few simple questions were - put to him.
Mr. Campbell, upon asking if he had ever
tried" to ' ride • on the coat tail of Knuty,
was answered that he (NeUon) never knew
but Mr. Campbell was candidate for repre
sentative . instead of senator, and <'• Knuty
.seemed to j like to know why Mr. Campbell
was. ; HererKnnty was stuck when' Mr.
Campbell answered that the people saw fit
! to nominate him for senator and Wash

tion by retiring to the Traverse house with
a rump delegation. ■ .kT.
Why, a Norwegian remarked, the day
after Knute delivered that . lecture, that
even if he had 'been a warm Nelson man
before hearing him he would have been a
Kindred man after hearing him, and that
he was completely ashamed and disgusted
with Knuty. Now let us take the two men,
Mr. Kindred and Knuty, and compare
them; Why, there is more difference in Mr.
Kindred's favor than there was between
Generals Garfield and Hancock. Knuty's
very countenance convicts him that he has
too much mental force and cheek and lit
tle or no brains, while Mr. Kindred
bears the very expression of a man pro
portionately equipped with everything re :
quired to make a thorough man and rep
resentative of the people. -It is just the
same way with Messrs, Campbell and Wells
and C. F. Washburn and Samuel Larson,
and the people know it as well as they
know that Knuty, Washburn and Larson
are . the bolters. All the county offi
cers, with the exception of
one, •; are Kindred, Campbell and
Wells men, and as they all are candidates
for re-election next fall, they certainly
know enough to keep on the popular side.
Knute Nelson did not ~ explain fdr what
purpose the tent was erected and who fur
nished the money for him and why. Nor
did he say how many axes the pine land
ring had to grind.

were forcible and convincing. Judge
Douglas thoroughly convinced his hearers
that Nelson was a claim jumper and the
tool of the pine land ring.
Major Stam showed most conclusively
that the charges against Mr. Kindred were
utterly groundless; and further proved the
regularity of Mr.. Kindred's nomination

GiiENWooD, Pope Co., Minn., Oct. 25.
Charles F. Kindred will poll a large vote
in this county. Large audiences turn out
to hear the Kindred speakers, Prof. J. I.
Crabb and the Hon. John M. Martin who
are systematically canvassing this county.
Both of these gentlemen are orators whom
it is a pleasure to hear. They present the
issues of the day and more especially the
interests of the Fifth district in an elo
quent manner. Mr. Martin shows in a
manner which amounts to proof, that Nel
son's interests are Washburn's interests and
that Nelson is the pliant tool of the pine
land ring, the Minneapolis millers' asso
ciation and the St. P., M. & M. railroad,
and that all of the ardent supporters of
Nelson are United States land officers
throughout the state who owe their terms
of office to Washburn. This county hith
erto has been very doubtful, but now that
truth is prevailing and Nelson and his
principal supporters are being shown in
their true, light and the fact that Nelson
organized the first bolt in the first county
convention in the Fifth district, being Nor
man county, having been established,
Charles F." Kindred is sure to have a large
Hinging Meeting at Rice's.
[Special Correspondence St. Paul Globe.]
Rice's, Minn., Oct. 25. — town hall in
this town was filled this evening to hear
Major D. C. Stam and Hon. J. B. Douglas
discuss the issues of the present campaign.
A number of ladies were present and a few
Nelson men. , . f: '^-: •'•:
Judge Douglas spoke first, and for an
hour he closely held the attention of the
audience. He carefully compared the
records of Knute Nelson and C. F. Kin
dred.. He showed Knute Nelson to be a
chronic office 6eeker and bolter, both in
Wisconsin and in this state. He showed
he stole L. W. Kilbourn's claim, and this
charge he clinched, despite the denials and
evasions of Nelson and Judge Reynolds on
this matter. He then enlightened the au
dience upon many other incidents of Nel
son's public life, relating to his connection
with the St. Paul & Pacific railroad, with
the Miller's association,. and with the pine
land ring, and, . in passing, Judge Douglas
paid his compliments' in very strong lan
guage to this infamous band. He then
took up the record of Mr. Kindred, and as ;
all that his enemies can find
against '-. him is ' the charge.. that - he
defrauded the.Northern. Pacific Railroad
company,. Jdnge Douglas carefully dis- ,
cussed these charges, and showed how
honoarbly Mr. Kindred had been cleared,
by reading the decision of the court in the
suits against him." -"*-:•:.'■
Major Stam spoke next. The major was'
a. delegate to the Detroit convention, and
in speaking of that he spoke from his own
knowledge. : He declared Charles , F. Kin
dred the regular nominee of th^t conven
tion and : proved it to the satisfaction !
of all but ; the . few -"a Nelson . men, i
and ' they were - almost converted and
will be in time. He took up the Cass and
Itaska y ; precincts matter, . and . \ de
nounced . in severe.. terms" any \\ one § who '
would attempt to disfranchise any voter of
this state. - V-,- .
jgj Major Stam is a very interesting speaker,
and his sallies of wit were "greatly relished.
Judge - Douglas, who speaks entirely with
out notes, is a very fluent, and convincing
speaker, and one who is always carefully '
listened to. :^i;:i?-< 7-
The meeting broke up with three cheers
for Charles F. Kindred, our next m amber
of congrose. Much enthusiasm was man
ifested, and a good vote will be polled for
Kindred. This meeting was the.first one
which has been held in this place, and the
people were very much pleased at being
able to hear two such good speakers.
Hon. E. P. Barnum, Democratic candi*
date for congress in the Fifth district, was
in the city last night, having just return
ed from holding a meeting at Duluth. A
Globe reporter met him - and
asked him what he had to say
to the attacks V made on him by
Oilman and Gordon, relative to selling out
to Kindred, in spite of his emphatic de
nial. --'• ' '-':--. \
.*. He replied that his card in yesterday's
Globe covered the whole matter and he
had nothing more to add. He had met
Mr. Kindred but twice during the cam
paign, once on the cars from BrainerS
to Moorehead and the second
time at Fergus Falls. He had simply
treated him like a gentleman, not consid
ering it necessary to be rude and uncivil to
a political opponent. The meeting was
purely accidental. He did not expect to
go from Brainerd to Moorehead until he
passed Little Falls on the way to attend
a committee meeting at Brainerd. He
was accompanied by Mr. Miller,
chairman of the Fifth district Democratic
committee, and finding there would be no
quorum at Brainerd lhey decided to con
tinue their journey to Moorhead. 'As they
did not know themselves, in advance, that
they were going, there could have been no
arrangement in the matter,
and Mr. Kindred acccidenlly. took
the same train without knowing
they were on board. At Fergus Falls Mr.
Barnum said he was present to fill a
speaking appointment duly advertised for
several days. That was the history of the
wonderful interviews. . Mr. Kindred had
never in the most remote manner made an
improper suggestion to him.
In response to queries as to the outlook,
Mr. Barnum said he would have 15,000
votes and be elected. He had the air of
being absolutely serious and in earnest" in
making this claim. . ; ',

Larson, to the editor of a Scandinavian
Chicago paper largely circulated in ihis
district. ~ - •• ..'...
Mr. Larson is one of the oldest and most
renowned Scandinavian journalists in this
com:try. and has for quite a number of
years taken - a somewhat prominent part
in the struggles of our party by fighting
monopoly and corruption in the press and
in the legislature, sometimes, with
marked success. He is at present
here in Fergus Falls, as corre
spondent for several Scandinavian news
papers, and has kindly furnished us with
a translation of his last letter to one of
the Scandinavian papers for which he
writes. This letter deserves to be read and
heeded by every voter in the district:
Febgus Falls, Minn., Oct. 23, 1882.—
My Dear Sir: In reply to your letter of
the 17th instant, I havo this \ much to say,
that .having found Mr. Kindred. on] the
right side whenever discussing national
economy and political reforms, I do con
sider him a staunch friend of the farmers
and laborers, whose interests, in fact, are
identical with his own.
I have personally and repeatedly dis
cussed the matter with Mr. Kindred, and-^
can assure you that he fully agrees with us
in recommending equitable legislation to
keep the railroads within their legitimate
bounds as common carriers, and to check
the tendency of some railroad companies
and other wealthy corporations to create
monopolies, and even menace tho liberties
of the people by taking undue advantage
of their ability to shut out competition, :.
and to influence legislation in favor of
privileged corporate supremacy. " -'-, _.
"Being largely interested in farming
himself, and expecting to represent a
large farming: district in congress, 7 Mr.
Kindred is by interest and connection, in
fall accord with the general' demand for '
cheap transportation, free competion in
all branches of trade and a legislation
equally beneficial to all classes, unjust to
none. *•'. : - .- JayY'-i^Y'-A:-
These are the reasons why I consider it
the duty of all citizens to support Mr.
Kindred for congress; especially as the '
publio record and political associations of
Mr. Nelson stamp him as a servile mer
cenary of the most voracious ' monopolists
in the state, and a vote for Mr. Barnum
simply signifies a possibility of Mr. Nel ■
son's election and a hew victory for corpo
rate arrogation, monopoly, ring rule and
political corruption in general. .
The false charges brought ' out against'
Mr. Kindred, in regard to his connection -
with the Northern Pacifio ■.. Railroad com
pany, were really too silly for belief, and
ought to be left for the most unscrupulous -
blackguards to ; circulate v now; tar Kt.
Yillard, the president ; of '*, said company,
has refuted them with the sweeping re
mark that '4f C. F. Kindred is a thief, then
we all are, for we have bought ' land with
bonds, which is all he has done, and ; as we
are stockholders, we would not be likely to
steal from ourselves."
Just as false as ; silly .are: those partial
charges against Mr. Kindred as having re
sorted to tricks and a lavish use of money,
to further * his nomination ; and election,
by corrupting the. press etc.", etc.;
Whoever remembers a' * time .when the
very newspapers V pref erring these charges
were not willing, nay,: anxious, to be '-. cor-'
rupted; when ■ politics were devoid of
tricks, and a campaign could be conducted
