The Boston Herald thinks the Republi cans will be obliged to nominate Senator Edmunds in 1884. "Who else," it asks, "can carry New York?" Good-bye, Chet Arthur. It has been euggested 11- a ft the chamber of commerce might profit by investigat ing the manner in which the site for the new building was purchased. Some hearts might ache as a consequence. Should Senator Edmunds become the Republican standard-bearer in- 1884, his candidacy would prove as surely the defeat of the Republican party as did the Ed munds anti-Mormon law the complete overthrow of the Gentiles of Utah . The Hon. Chauncey M. Depew, remark ing that the presidency is chasing Mr. Blame, the Philadelphia Press wants to know "if Mr. Depew thinks Mr. Blame is atraid." Call it what you please, Mr. Blame is not the style of man to get in the way of defeat. The poultry crop of the country is some thing interesting. The product for 1882 is statistically 6hown to be $560,000,000. This valuation exceeds the amount of the dairy product and even wheat, hay and cotton. For 1882 the dairy product is credited with $254,000,000, hay $436,000, --OCO, wheat $488,000,000, cotton $410,000, --000. The comments of the papers of the Btate, or a large portion of them, upon the Democratic ticket are given elsewhere. Most of the extracts are from Republican sheets, because they largely exceed in numbers the Democratic. The Republi can papers evidently feel better since McNair left the ticket headless, but they may not be so joyful when the committee fill the vacancy. De. Francis A. Walkeb, who has been prominently considered as a Republican candidate for Governor of Massachusetts, is ineligible, as he has not been a resident of the state the constitutional seven years. The demoralized Republicans are at sea again. Their best way to "beat Butlerism," which ia their especial desire, is to turn in and elect him governor again. After that the phantom of their unrest will disap pear. Raymond Davidson, accompanying the president and his party on their tour to the Yellowstone, announces that there are no special or professional correspondents with the party, and that all dispatches pur porting to come from such pers^^s are Bp-mous. . After reading one of Mr. David- Boii'.-i dispatches an intelligent mortal wou'.il crave for nothing more than a '■•-■; urious dispatch." There are idiots of ail decrees, but Raymond Davidson is en titltd to the whole bakery. Tl:e af-ieth anniversary of the incorpo ration of Chicago as a village occurred upon Friday last.

An Ohio teli . ram in Sunday morning's Globe gives .-cl . interesting intelligence in regard to She campaign in progress in that state, and conveys the information that the Republicans are in desperate straits and have been excessively strained to procure their corruption fund. Ben. Cowan, who knows something of the inside of politics from the Republican stand point, say* that the state committee have been pledged a quarter of a million of dollar?, p.n'l with that sum will try to buy their wa\ tti rough. Up to this time the RepnbliCfius have been to tha outside i»vU;!ic very boastful, aDd expressed a con fidence not at all warranted by the true situation. Stalwart efforts have been made to create the impression outside the state tii^i the Republicans are sure of success. Po;-traapter General Gresham, the fresh political appointee and adviser of .'. ;hur has been on a mission to the bti»*'.s, and oa. his r • .iru to Washington ; ' sa if ac his opini. i Lhat the Republicans « ! • l«ot their ticket- The chief justice of v . in Ohi • m^n, who his been on a • ■ i ihe state, on his return home ■ward strewed' his. route with the opinion" that the Republicans are sure to win. He found them vastly confident, he says, and sure of win ning a victory. Doubtless the expecta tions of the arrival of the corruption fund has stimulated these opimons,and the man agers expect success from its distribution at Cincinnati and Cleveland and other large towns throughout the state. To candid observers, however, it has all along been apparent that there is really no prospect of Republican success. There have been evident signs of distress in Re publican circles that the ostentatious and concerted game of brag has not concealed. Gov. Foster, who had the honor of provid - ing a weak candidate for Governor, and a weaker platform, has for some time seen that all was lost, at least that the ordinary methods would find his party with the ma jority of 20,000 to 30,000 against them when the polls close on the second Tuesday of October. His ulterior interest in the campaign be ing the securing of a Republican legisla ture that will elect him to the United States senate, he has taken the lead in pro curing money for corrupt uses. As Sena tor Sherman had said, in reviewing Foster's bungling work in securing the passage of the Scott law and his packing the supreme court to pronounce it constitutional, and in regard to the foolish nomination of Foster's man for governor, that the state is hopelessly lost, that Foraker's defeat is a certainty and no amount of expenditure can win or buy success, Foster has become inspired to try the power of money hoping to produce a change of thought, as was done in Indiana in 1880. To the corrup tion fund that he proposes to use, he subscribed $25,000 and in Washington and New York sought for help, and now it is given out that through Gresham and other friends close to the administration $225, --000 has been pledged in addition to his donation. Vicious as is this corrupt scheme for the use of money, there is another element that is more contemptible and outrageous, if possible, the campaign of slander that has been instituted against Judge Hoad ly. In this brutal work Gov. Foster has taken the initiative and the lead. A more villianous conspiracy than this has never entered into a campaign in this country, and for very decency's sake those who are making use of such means deserve the condemnation of overwhelming defeat. Th 6 old Republican party that Ohio used to know has disappeared, and in its place is the Foster party, bossed by as un scrupulous a cabal as has ever existed in politics. These rascals will not sacceed. Under Boss Foster's domination the politi cal elements have changed. The German Republicans — the d — d Dutch, as the graceful Foster classifies them — have held the balance of power in Ohio for some time. Owing to the intolerance and folly of the Republican legislature last year this powerful element withdrew from their support and brought about the Republican defeat of 1882. This class of voters have not returned to the ranks which they dis carded, and they cannot be induced to do so, by the power of money or from any other course. The prohibitionists, who cast a considerable vote, have their own ticket in the fieJd. Desperate attempts have been made to induce these voters to abandon their principles and their ticket and vote for Boss Foster's man. The effort to gain accessions from that source has literally and totally failed. Under these circumstances the use of money to produce a change of thought is resorted to, and a plan very much like that used in Indiana in 1880 mapped out. Money has already been heard of in counties where there is a large floating vote, as for instance, a 'good many hundred dollars have been sent into Stark county, where there are numerous miners and tran-ient residents, whom the repeaters with Fos.v '•? *wn~, will try to capture. Those who are watching the contest in Ohio must not anticipate the defeat of Judge Hoadly . A revolt from within the Democratic party might produce that re sult, but instead of there being any symptoms of that, there is satisfactory evidence that he will command heartily, the full vote of his party, including the Ger mans who retired forever from the Republican party last year. That solid vote will prove •ufficient to elect Judge adly, but there will be other accessions i . jm the Republi - can party . He will receive a great many vote 3 from the colored citizens of the state and from independent Republicans, who will support him a3 a rebuke to Fos ter's bossism and Republican legislative intolerance. In this contest the interest ana sympathy of all independent men gravitates to Judge Hoadly, because of his transcendent ability, his personal and political integrity and because of the infamous crusade made upon him by a desperate cabal of the worst elements that exist in the politics of this country. Those who look for and hope for Judge Haad ly's success will not be disappointed. "Colonel" Freddie. [Perham Bulletin.] There is a good joke on Col. Fred. Dris coll, of the Pioneer Press, who laid him self out to entertain the Associated Press party, expecting, of cou'se, that the pro prietors of newspapers and the editors in chief would compose the company. His chagrin and even anger was deep when he found that it was composed solely of sub ordinates, reporters and sub editors. To the poor man who don't speak to his own reporters on the street, this was an awful mortification, but the cornstalk colonel was in for it, and had to pay for the ban quet at Minnetonka allee samee. The big editors are in reserve for Villiard's excur sion later. The story is Ihe laugh of the town. Never Oive l'p.

TEE ST. PAI T L DAILY GLOBE, MONDAY MORNING, AUGUST 13, 1883. CATILHM FATHER O'COXXOR, OF XEW TORK AT PLYMOUTH CHURCH. He Claims There Should be a Reformation in the Roman Catholic Church, and that the Articles of Faith Added £ioce the Council of Trent Should be Lopped OH — Does Not Believe in a Human Confes sional—He Holds the Priesthood and the People in Affectionate Regard. Plymouth church was filled to overflow ing at an early hour last evening to listen to Father O'Conner, a prominent leader in the independent Catholic church move ment in New York city, and many were obliged to go away not being able to ob tain either seat or Bt&n&ing room. Rev. Dr. Dana opened the services with read ing the scriptures and prayer and intro duced the speaker, remarking that he came here not in the character of a con versionaiist, but t© let the Protestant churches know what was being done by him and his co-workers in the establish ment of this independent mission work in New York City. Father O'Connor opened with symboliz ing the church of Christ a3 a pure and spotless pillar oi •white marble in the recognizance of all spiritually minded men. As time moved on one set of man kind drove a nail into it, then another, and then another, and hung their own gar ments upon these nails until the pillar was hidden by these garments and the people fell to worshipping them instead of the original church. At such times God called men like Martin Luther from out the ranks of these worshippers themselves to pull out these nails, that the pillar of truth might be visible to the whole world for their regeneration. There was a greater reformation in the sixteenth ctntury than for the whole fif teen centuries previous. The council of Trent formulated the Roman Catholic church 300 years previous to 1854, and in all that time nothing was added to its articles. Then the bishops were summon ed to Rome and at the suggestion of the papal authorities a new article or garment was added — the immaculate conception of the Virgin Mary— and afterwards the Vicegerentship of the Pope for Jesus Christ. In 1859, a Vatican council added another article or garment— the infalli bility of the Pope. For a space of many years there had been no defection from the church of England, but soon after the addition of the last article to the Roman Catholic faith there was such a going over on the part of prominent mother church personages to that faith, accepting the old tenets aud the newer manufactured ones, that it was at one time thought that the former would be entirely absorbed in the latter. But for the last year the tide has been setting the other way and more than fifty prominent noblemen and clergymen, among others a nephew of one of the car dinals have gone back to the mother church Men are beginning, inside of the Ro man Catholic church to think for themselves instead of delegating their thinking to others, and while respecting true Catholicism, have grown to disbelieve that the Roman Cath olic church is the only door through which mankind can reach God, that the Italian pope is the vicegerent of Jesus Christ and a successor of the apostle Peter, who was the first pope, the latter of which claim for century after centnry have been be lieved and accepted. While there were comparatively but few thinking and in quiring rnindo in the days of the Luther reformation owing to the ignorance of the period, in these days of general education and intelligence there is a great multitude of questiones as to the divine right of po tentate or priest, to stand be tween the people and their God. Here the speaker alluded to an article, appearing in a recent issue of the North western Chronicle, stating that he was a "bad man," by saying that he preached every Sabbath evening from October to April, at a hall in New York to an audi enoe of 1,000 Irish people, and that he should have to leave it to his parishioners to say whether he spent the remaining six days of the week in the penitentiary, in other disreputable places, or in any qaes tionable occupation. He then proceeded to give a brief his tory of himself. He was born, he said, a good square Irishman, in Killarney, on the shores of the beautifui lakes of that name. He was of a family of nine children, and though the fifth in the number, as is usual in many such cases, he was chosen by hia parents for the priesthood, and received a partial education therefor in the Catholic schools and col leges of his native land. Under the advice of an old parish priest, whose name he still holds dear, he was advised to come to America and finish his education, which he did, and was ordained a priest by Bishop Foley in Chicago in 1872. Of his old pro fe.-sors and teachers in the Catholic semi naries, he said that they tried to influence his heart, that Jesus might enter in, and that he ever should hold them in endeared remembrance. He then went on to describe that he en tered the labor of the priesthood with a pure and innocent heart, and feeling the responsibility upon him of taking the sin ner by the hand and leading him to Jesus. Chicago was a fruitful field for labor, and he soon found that the Irish people with whom he was as it were a missionary could only be reached through their emo tions and affections, and that his labors among them were mostly rewarded with success at the confessional. This he described in a vivid manner, showing how in it the person is brought face to face with his sins before a human presence, rather than God's. The methods of the holy fathers of the Catholic church in bringing the people to confession was described by their spcial wants to the churches where they preached an eternal truth, the enormity of sin, the last judgment aud the beauty and peace of religion, and called upon them to search their hearts for the sin hidden there. Men and women longing for pence from unquiet consciences, and believing if they did not obtain pardon through this medi um, accepted it as their only alternative. The speaker claimed in connection with this subject that the revivals of religion in the protestant churches had their origin from this custom of confessing inaugu rated by the holy fathers. The fact that so many would receive pardon from him at the confessional aud come again with the same sins to be par doned in three or six monlhs, the speaker claimed first led him to doubt the truth of the position that the pardoning power of the sins of man could be delegated from God and vested in man. Further research showed him that the majority of his communicants woald bi-eak the law of God for which they could so easily obtain hu man pardon, that they held the command ments of the church, which were of human origin, inviolate, and in proof of this he cite! some very interesting facts. In saying that when he left the prie>t hood that he felt he had been deceived ai J could no longer conscientiously remain in that position, he* added that he resolved that he would hold to that which was true in the Roman Catholic religion and after thejmanner of the|thoughts of many world lings farther resolve! to live a good moral life and leave the rest to God. In this connection he con demned members of the priesthood, who, after finding the Roman Catholic religion did not satisfy the cravings of their souls, left it, denouncing their past associates, heralding its evils to theworld,and were not able, on account of their own sinful ness, to recognize and admit of those things in it which were good. He would not have priests and people lose all faith in the religion in which they had so thoroughly trusted, for it would prevent them afterwards from accepting any re ligious truth into their hearts, but rather have the church retain its elements of true Catholicism, casting aside from it these new devices, in the observance of which the church and its commands had usurped the place of God and his com mandments. On leaving the prierthood he thought of entering the ranks of medicine, but on ar riving at New York, found others in a sim ilar position, and here soon afterward he, for the first time, met Jesus at the conces sional and gave his heart to him. He said in this connection, that Jesus was ever personally seeking the sinner for his con fession, and when he meets him this is all of it. It is nothing which an Italian pope has to do with, this spiritual confession of man to his God, and nothing he has any more right to dictate about than he has about the politics of Ireland. In closing, he said that the work of breaking down the barriers between the Roman Catholio and the Protestant church was commenced in England thirteen years ago, and has now obtained a good foothold in New York, where there are nearly 1,000 members of the three independent Catho lic churches, 500 having been converted to God in his own flock. This is a connec ting link between the Roman Catholic and the Protestant church, but it is of neither, but of the order of the great church of Jesus Christ, in which the whole Christian world will finally stand as one . He had the deepest affection for the Roman Catholic priests, and could not feel otherwise towards them. He only asked them to hear him that they might find a better way than through an Italian pope, from whom even the Ital ians themselves were beginning to break away. He asked his audience not to villify or asperse the religion of their Irish friends and those in their em ploy, who had not the advantages of edu cation, and to use the intelligence God had given them to gently lead these into the right way and make known to them that which is so plain to them as having con fessed their sins to God, who has alone the power of pardon and redemption. A SIGNIFICANT CABD. To tho Editor of the (ilobe: Rev. Mr. O'Connor thiß morning assures the publio through your columns that as a priest of the Catholic church he was never suspended by his bishop from the exercise of the ministry. I have very little concern with Mr. O'Connor, but my regard for my fellow citizens of St. Paul does not permit me to be silent when I know that he is for purposes of his own telling them that which is not the truth. The positive fact in his case is that he was suspended in Chicago by the late Bishop Foley, for good causes. The officials of the church will witness my statement. The so called Independent Catholic church of New York is simply the work of a half dozen of suspended priests. Not one of its leaders left the Catholic church while in good standing. The people of St. Paul will judge for themselves what weight is to be attached to the sayings and lec tures of these ex-priests. John Ireland.

At a special meeting of the city council he'd on Saturday night, plans were sub mitted and adopted for the erection of a new jail, the old one having become ob jectionable on account of its sanitary and other defects. The council also concluded not to disturb the grade of lower Main street for the present at least. New Bloomfield, Mi6B., Jan. 2, 1880. I wish to say to yo u that I have been suffering for the last five years with a severe itching all over. I have heard of Hop Bitters and have tried it . I have used up four bottles, and it has done me more good than all the doctors and medicines that they could use on or with me. I am old and poor but feel to bless you for such a relief by your medicine and from torment of the doctors. I have had fifteen doctors at me. One <;ave m» seven ounces of solution of arsenic; an other took four quarts of blood from me. All they could tell was that it was skin sickness. Now, after these four bottles of your medicine, my skin is well, clean and smooth as ever. HENRY KNOCHE. The St. Albans Disturbance. St. Albans, Vt., Aug. 12. — A painful quietness exists yet in regard to financial matters. Barlow is reported as saying last night he felt pretty sure the deposit ors in the Vermont National bank will be secure. When asked regarding the Trust j company he said he did not care to state. There are some complaints in Montreal because Bariow does not assume his place there and assert himself as the president of the Southeastern road, while negotia- j tions are in progress. Railroad men state i the Canadian Pacific desires nothing of the Southeastern road but what is due. It is bey and question, however, according to re- j liable information received here, that the j Canadian Pacific is interposing every pos- j sible obstacle to prevent a speedy and sat- j isfactory sale of the road to the New York ! syndicate. The Canada Pacific is nat- I urally loath to lose its eastern outlet. *lleyelation suggests the idea that from Wo man comes the power to "bruise the serpent's head."

IE DEMOCRATIC MET A Sort of aKangaron Welcome from Re publican Papers and Hearty Endorse ment by Democratic. Exactly .' [Caledonia Journal — Rep.] McNair is "eminently respectable," but he is a dead candidate from the start, and the campaign is a dead one from the beginning. None of It in His'n. [Caledonia News — Rep.] McNair wiil have none of it in his'n. He respectfully, regretfully but emphatically declines, and the disgust is general. Ah! [Ortonville North Star— Rep. | Mr. Gilman will receive the unanimous support of the Kindred men in this dis trict and will run fully up with his ticket. Just stick a pin there. A Respectable Ticket. [Anoka Herald — Rep.J The convention did good work, and placed a very respectable ticket in the field, and one, which, if it had been allowed to stand without change, all good Demo crats could have heartily supported. Kail It to Ihe Masthead. IWorthington Advance, Rep.] The preamble and the second resolution of the Democratic platform of Minnesota ought to be nailed to the masthead of ev ery newspaper in America and kept flying there as long as there is a newspaper pub lished in the land. ''Doleful *' [St. Cloud J< Mr. McNair on Monday formally noti fied the committee that their candidate he could not be. and now the brethren on the other side are in a doleful frame of mind They do not know where to turn to find a candidate who will "stick." Friend Whitlock. [Shakopee Courier — Dem. ] We learn that Mr. McNair declines the nomination, and we therefore propose as a substitute the name of Friend J. Whit lock of Belle Plaine, as the only at pres ent living exponent of the old time revo lutionary Jeffersonian Democracy. Will Win Rejtublican Votes, [Le Sever Sentinel — Dem.J The ticket, with one exception, (which modestly forbids mentioning,) is a very good one, and will not only command the full vote of the .Democratic party, but will receive a large number of votes from re spectable Republicans, who are disgusted with their own ticket. Slore Fun in Going to Europe. [St. Peter Tribune— Rep,] McNair has decided that there is more fun in making a trip to Europe than in being a candidate for governor on the Democratic ticket. On Monday he de clined the nomination. What will become of the orphans now ? Will Buck come to front or will it be Bierman? Exceptionally Strong. [Sauk Center Herald— Rep.] The ticket is not only a good one, but it is exceptionally strong, and the personal popularity of the leading candidates will doubtless gain votes from the Republican party in the localities where they are best known. But it will be a mere handful, not in anyway effecting |the general result MeXair Ecldentl y Xot a Devotee. [Rochester Post — Rep.] The political sentiment of the state is so firmly pledged against the Democratic party that the man who consents to assume the labors of a political campaign upon its platform is either regardless of unrequited efforts or a devotee to impossible politioal aspirations. Ames the Man—Fraxee's Popularity. [Prinoeton Union — Rep. | The Democrats made a mistake in nom inating McNair, Ames was the man that should have been nominated. Frazee, the Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor is one of the most popular men in the state. He will poll a big vote, although it is hardly probable that he will be elected. A lAicid Explanation. [Litchfield News-Ledger, Rep.] The maddest man among the mossback3 perhaps, is Doc. Ames, but the rest all have hot boxes. You see, Me. has a "'bar'l" and they were in hopes they might get a hand in at the bung-hole. As it is now, how ever, they will have to hunt up some man who is willing to be offered as a sacrifice, to head their ticket. Who Will be His Successor. [Austin Transcript — Rep. 1 W. W. McNair has positively declined the Democratic nomination fDr governor. He is well qualified for the office, and would have polled a larger vote than any other man his party can put up. Who will be his successor on the ticket? Dr. Ames is anxious to be. We and all other Republicans are willing. Mere Bluff. [Winona Herald — Dem.] McNair says he would like to see the man who dares say he promised to accept the nomination for governor. This is mere bluff. He did not some before the convention, as he should have done, and refuse the use of his name, but permitted himself to be nominated with the tacit un derstanding that he would accept. Ilailed With l'lea. sure . [Delano Eagle — Rep.] The nomination of Hon. W. W. McNairl for governor by the Democratic state con-l vention was looked npon with favor, andl his acceptance of the same would havel been hailed with pleasure by the best ele-| ment in the party throughout this section j of country; while blind partisans among j the Republicans seemed to fear and at the • same time were trying to belittle the j choice. Explaining for McXair. [Temperance Review. 1 The Democratic party of Minnesota for once put up a good ticket, or at least, the i two leading names are good. They then j spoiled their chance of success by placing J those men on a whisky platform. Mr. i ■! McNair refuses to accept, giving his rea- i I- sons — omitting, however, in our judgment, | the main reason — that he could not indorse I the platform. Rejmblicau Protection. [Preston National Republican.] The bosses of the Minnesota Democrat ; party, so-called, went to St. Paul a f ew ! ; days ago and nominated a state ticket ' with W. W. McNair, a Minneapolis br.nker, ! at the head as candidate for governor. The Bth instant McNair sent to the com- 1 mittee his positive declination jf the empty honor. The Republican party ' ! amply provides for his speculative iiiter \ ests, protects his uoa taxable interest bearing bonds, and otherwise robs the people to gratify his avarice. To have made the canvass would have subjected h : m to sundry assessments for campaign purpose?, and this would be an unneces sary waste of the wealth the robber system of the Republican party has bestowed upon him freely and without cost. Wliat unll TJiey Do About It. |Owatonna Journal — Rep.] Mr. A. Bierman, of Olmsted, really de sired the nomination, but the Dr. Ames in fluence was too strong for him. He would probably have made the most creditable race of any candidate in the field . Now the Democrats are in a bad fix. They have no candidate for the head of their ticket, and as the convention failed to appoint a central committee, the puzzling question is, "What will they do about it?" Duties Too Arduous. [Glencoe Register — Rep.] Mr. McNair respectfully declines the doubtful honor thrust upon him by the late Democratic convention. He concludes that he cannot attend to the arduous du ties of governor this year. The state cen tral committee mu3t now furnish the sub stitute, and it will probably.be either Bier mann, of Olmsted county, or Doc. Ames, of Hennepin, neither of whom are proba bly craving the empty honor. Ramsey and Hennevin Must be Busted. [Hastings Union— Dem.] Future Democratic conventions must be prepared to fight the power and arrogance of the delegations from Ramsey and Hen nepin counties. Always assuming control of the party and taking to themselves a dictatorial spirit, their leadership has so far led the party on to nothing but sure defeat. Refusing to recognize the rights of the northern and southern delegations, they work but for their own personal in fluence and let the party go to the devil. Good Tactics. [Wright Co. Times— Rep. J The Democrats headed their ticket with a candidate who lends respectability to it, and, among the solid members of that par ty, at least, gives it strength also by nomi nating W. W. McNair, of Minneapolis. They do not expect to win this year, and it must be conceded that they display gen eralship in this move, in keeping the foun dations of their organization as sound as possible to build on, if there ever should be a chance. Hope Blasted. 1 Duluth Times— lnd. j The refusal of McNair to acoept the Democratic nomination for governor is a sad blow to the hopes and aspirations of his party . It is true many of them, and perhaps the majority, did not hope for victory, but it was expected that his can didacy would bring out the full strength of the party, and show what material there was to work on in future cam paign?. This hope, like so many others, i s blasted. Should be Endorsed. Both candidates and platform are satis faotory in every particular, and if the peo ple of this state care for their own personal welfare — care for the good of the common wealth they will be endorsed in November by such a vote as will at least check the growing arrogance of the monopolies into whose hands we have fallen, and give the common people another breath of that life so necessary to prosperity and happiness, but which is fast being choked out of them. "Final Success is Inevitable." [Shakopee Argus — Dem.l Now a strong Democratic state ticket is given you for your support. Will you sup port it? Success is possible, but nothing but strong, forcible and energetic work will accomplish the result. Some Repub licans laugh,but their laugh is faint and of a sickly cast, and say that jt is impossible; but they will soon awake to a dim con sciousness that the impossible has become the possible. The time has come for a change; the country imperatively demands it; the people insist upon it; resistance is useless; final success is inevitable. Make the Best of It. LRed Wing Aurgus — Dem.] The only thing that the convention ap pears to have been unfortunate in doing was the nomination of Hon. W.W. Mc- Nair, of Minneapolis, for governor. He ia a gentleman every way qualified to fill the position, and would have made one of the best executives the state ever had could he have been elected, but in face of his repeated protests and almost positive refusal to accept the office the convention saw fit to nominate him. Mr. McNair de olines to accept, and the state central com mittee will have to fill the vacancy. There is but one position for the Democracy of this state to take, and that is to show a united front to their opponents, and make the best of the situation. If every Demo crat in the state would vote, the aggregate would astonish everyone. The Republi can party is divided into factions, with no prospect of coalition except the greed for office, and the consistent position of the Democracy will naturally attract a large number of voters who are sick of this eternal squable for the loaves and fishes.
