llotnrns for tho month of Oclobor, received
by the National Bureau of Agriculture, show
that tho wheat crop in tho United States for
1875 is a short one, aud that thcro is a
marked deterioration in quality. So far as
Reported tbo average product is about 80 per
cent of that of last year, and if this rato
holds good, tho total falling oil will amount
to 02,000,000 bushels, with a depreciation of
14 per cent in quality. Tho quality of corn,
howovor, is exceptionally high, with n de
crease in production of about 4 per cent as
compared with 1871.
It is anticipated that Washington will bo
the uccno of stirring political movements goon
after tho 15th of November, that being the
duto of Feunando Wood’s occupancy of his
hospitable mansion at tho Capital. Tho ar
rival of this crafty wire-puller will bo tho
signal for active operations by all tho aspir
ants to the Speakership of tho Dcmocratio
Congress. Fernando declares Lis intention
to make tho fight a hot one ; Kcnn, of In
diana, relies upon a coalition with tho Tildes
won, basing his expectations upon tho theory
fhat New York cannot urge candidates for
both tho Presidency and tho Speakership at
tho soino time; Ham Randall is still hope
ful, though not so confident as ho was two
mouths ago; whilo ex-Gov. Walked, of West
Virginia, is mentioned as likely to figure con
rrpicuoufily as the favorite of tho Eastern
members, and as a candidate who stands in
uobody’s light for the Presidency.
Tho Canadian fisheries question, which has

to protect tho purity of tho ballot-box at tho
approaching election. Tills movement is
non-partisan. It represents tho lumber in

corrupting elections while there is yot time.

Argument is now being hoard *by tho
United Slates Supremo Court, in tho case of
tho Government against tho Union Pacific
Railroad Company, to compel the latter to
reimburse the Government for interest paid
upon tho bonds loaned *o assist in the con*
stmetion of tho road, or, more specifically, to
permit tho Government to withhold the en
tire amount duo tho Company for tr.msportn
lion ami apply tho sumo ns r.u offset lo (ho
claim for tho payment of interrst on tho
bonds. An idea of the magnitude of
tho issuo now ponding in the Supremo
Court is furnished by Attorney-General
Piebrepost’b statement, that a decision in
favor of the Company will bo equivalent to a
gain of iJi’OO.tKKt.oot) to tho stockholders of
the Pacific Railroads, and that, before a single
generation shall have passed, tho Govern
ment will have paid, in tho shape of interest
aloue, for tho different Pacific Railway Com
panies, (ho enormous sum of $!ll£,Od”vl(,
less only tho deduction of ono-half the Com
panies’ charges for services rendered the
Government from year to year.
Tho Sixteenth Ward Republican Club has
sot an excellent example for tho course that
ought to ho pursued with reference to tho
proposed stuffing of the ballot-boxes. They
Lave organized what they call “Ballot-Box
Guards,” who are to bo officered by a Cap
tain, n First and Second Lieutenant, and ilvo
Sergeants. Tho self-imposed duty of this
organization is to stand by tho polls and pro
tect them against fraud on election day.
Such an organization should bo formed by
the honest voters in every ward in tho city,
and it should count among its members all
tho active and stalwart young men in tho
ward who aro interested in an honest elec
Tho particular function of tho Ballot-Box
Guards should bo to protect tho challengers
in their rights. Wo reproduce tho section of
the Election law defining theso rights :
The Judges of election thill allow at ieut one ami
not more (ban two legal voters of each party (o tho
content, to bo choicn by tbo parties rctpcclivdy, In
the room where tho election is held, to act os chat*
leugors of voter* at such election; and each chal
lenges may remain with the board of election until
the votes are all canvassed and the roault declared.
In conformance with this provision, tho
Kopublican Campaign Committee, with tho
advice and help of gentlemen living in tho
various wards, will unquestionably select two
men to act as challengers at every prooinct.
It will then bo for tho Ballot-Box Guards in
each ward to watch their precincts for tbo
double purpose of seeing that tho challengers
do their duty faithfully and unflinchingly,
and to sco that they aro not prohibited
by strategy, intimidation, or violence
from remaining with tho ballot-boxes
from tbo opening of tho polls
until the voto shall havo been counted. Tho
Election law likewise requires (Sec. 50) that
there shall bo no adjournment and no recess
until tho votes shall have been counted and
the result publicly announced. Tho Ballot-
Box Guards can also see that this provision of
tho law is not violated.
Tho merchants of tho city tiro doing well
to organize a protest against tho threatened
corruption of tho ballot-box. If election
frauds are permitted to bccomo tho rule, in
stead of the exception, in this city, tho mcr
cautilo community of Chicago may expect to
suffer as tho business of New York and Haiti
more has suffered from tho same cause, IT
tho Chicago merchants would prevent theso
frauds, they should go at it in apractical way.
Their intluenco will count for nothing with
tho people who aro deliberately proposing to
stuff tho ballot-boxes. Speech-making will
not holp tho matter. A largo mooting will
make no impression upon the County
Commissioners, nor tho Opposition judges,
nor tho roughs who will gather at
tho polls iu tho interest of tho Itausa ticket,
lint there aro two ways iu which theso mer
chants can do practical service, viz. s (1) By
dosing their establishments a part of tho
day on condition that their employes shall
spend a portion of tho time nt tho polls doing
service as voters and as Hollot-Hox Guards ;
and (11) by raising a fund for tho payment of
tho challengers to bo selected by tho Hopub
licau Committee for each precinct, to remain
hy tho ballot-boxes from tho opening of tho
polls till after tho vote shall have been count
ed and tho result announced.
Tho Cincinnati pcoplu havo recently dem
onstroted that ballot-box stuffing may bo de
feated by eternal vigilance. One year ogo
tho Democrats carried that city by fi,ooo ma
jority,— no unusual a majority that it was
felt that it could only havo neeu ob
tained by fraud. This year tho honest
voters organized in every ward, as wo
havo suggested they shall orgnnizo in Chi
cago, aud remained by tho ballot-taxes till
the vote was counted. They gave special at
tention to those words where tho Democratic
vote of lost year wos strangely excessive.
Tim result was that the vote in such words
was reduced to its proper proportions, and
the city went llepnblican by 1,(100 majority.
There is no registry law in Ohio, and the
people were deprived of this protection uh
they will he In Chicago nt this election ; and
it is universally admitted that, if theso ex
traordinary precautions had not been tak
en, there would have been frauds this year
os there were last year with a similar result.
>\hat Cincinnati has done Chicago may do,
as it is just as imperative hero as it was
there ; but to defeat the Chicago ballot-box
staffers, with nil tho election judges and all
the roughs in tho city on their side, will re
quire unflinching courage, perfect oryaniza
tion, and untiring vigUauce uoxt Tucseay.
Elsewhere iu this issuo will bo found an
address delivered iu Ht. Louis on -Monday by
tbo Kov. Josti'U llenni.no, u Catholic priest.
This clerical gentleman is by no menus
mealy-mouthed in his utterances. Ho asserts
that the Catholio Church is being persecuted
in tho United States; aud cites, us instances
of this persecution, the efforts to preserve
tlm publiu schools from sectarianism, and
tho movements in behalf of compulsory
education. Ho declares that tbo Ktuto
cannot bo independent of tho Church,
as the latter is infallible iu everything; that a
Catholic must be bitch politiically as well us
religiously; and (hot, consequently, it is tho
duly of every Catholic, iu casting his veto at
any election, to placo it whore It will
do his Church tho most good. Protestant

Tim W't-ih-Ztifitnff, or Mr. Hehino through
tho Sl'Vit-i'/.i itmnj, with ft HhmncfneedneKS
which is simply unpftrnllclod, is now parading
a letter to himself upon tho occasion of his
departure for Europe guv year* ago, and ac
companying ft service of plate, signed by
prominent Republicans. This letter ho now
sets forth, iril/iont dots, ns a certificate of
present good political character !
Wlmt were the circumstances under which
this letter was drawn and signed? At tho
time this pintc-prcsontatiou occurred Sir.
llkmno was on tho evo of departure for
Europe to place his son in college, and it
was understood that ho would bo absent
three or four years. This was in tho fall
of ISlifk, six years ago, ot a time
when Mr. Ilcsixn was an active and energetic
.Republican editor and politician. It was at
a time when ho was not an apostate to his
party and an ingroto to his friends. It was
at ft time when ho hod not gone into Bum
mer and Opposition parties. It was at a timo
when ho had not joined the BoaUawngs cud
tax-eaters, and become tho loader of loafers,
bummers, and tho criminal classes. Ho was
then on tho side of decency, morality, correct
principles, and of political honesty. His
friends improved tho occasion to give him ft
supper nt tho Briggs House, and before
tho evening of tho supper two
papers were drawn up by some of
Mr. Hesinq’s confidential friends, perhaps by
Mr. Raster, tho ono testifying to tho general
respect felt for him by his party friends, and
tho other calling for subscriptions for a
service of plate. These papers were circu
lated by some of his intimates, and tho gen
tlemen to whom they were presented signed
them for tho reason that iLr. llesino had al
ways acted with thorn in political matters,
had been tho advocate of Republican princi
ples and a prominent German leader of tho
Republican party. They signed their names,
they gave him the supper. They presented
him tho pinto. They bade him good-bye, and
wished him well
Now, in tho name of all that is decent, so
cially and politically, what does Mr. Hesino
expect to gain by publishing this farewell
letter six years after date? His relations to
tho men who signed those papers are now
totally changed. Ho is now working against
tho parly of which ho then was a leader; ho
is now tho loader of tho bad and dangerous
elements in this city.
Upon what possible grounds can ho explain
this publication of a certificate of Am own fall
and dishonor? Tin: Tiiiddne or tho Journal
might have published it os a fit object at
which to point tho finger of scorn, but that
tho Staatn-Zcitung should print this evidence
of his backsliding almost surpasses belief.
In tho Chicago inflation organ wo find tbo
following picture of happy, prosperous,
good times when tho country was being con
sumed by tho flames of war:
During tbo War, when tho governmental expendi
tures for Hie support of tbo army and the civil service
wero at noo time 13,000,000 per day; when taica were
high—never bo high before nor aluce—oven to tbo ex
tent of necessitating a burden upon all Internal aa
well as external industry, the whole country was pros
perous because the people of tho whole country wero em
ployed. Tbo burdens of taxation, direct and Indirect,
never before nor since rested so lightly upon the
shoulders of tho masses. Public improvements wero
inaugurated and prosecuted generously. Private en
terprise* in which the public was benefited were es
tablished sad maintained on a liberal scale. Prosperity
was seen on every hand.
This season of universal “ prosperity " was
when there were half a million of young am!
able-bodied men of tho North, who had been
withdrawn from happy homes and peaceful
industry,—languishing iu tho hospitals, dying
of their wounds and diseases, or were lying
in their cold graves. At tho samo Umo there
were a million of other young mon of tho
North bearing orms in tho field, suffering and
enduring the perils aud hardships of bloody
war. On tho other sido of tho lino tho whole
population was enlisted in ouo way or tho
other iu tho 'War. Immense hospi
tals, prisons, aud gravo-yords at
tested tho general prosperity! There,
too, tho men had perished by tbo tons of
thousands, and there, too, as nt tho North,
each village had its population of widows
and orphans, celebrating tho unprecedented
prosperity of tho nt last happy laud I Tho
land was filled with tears and desolation,
but tho camp-followers hod a harvest plan*
dering tho living, tho dying, and tho dead.
It was a glorious time,— millions of armed
men seeking tho destruction of each other ;
armies and navies burning and destroying
property at tho rate of millions of dollars a
day. Never was there such a season of
‘•prosperity." Hounty-Jurapors grow rich ;
corrupt Congressmen rccoivod large divi
dends ; subsidy-brokers drove a rushing busi
ness; contractors robbed right and left; there
was not a dishonest man in all tho land who
did not prosper as dishonest, men bad never
prospered before.
It was the time of borrowing money. The
Government borrowed from $2,000,000 to
a day, and spent it for powder
and rifles and instruments of destruction, for
paper shoes, shoddy clothing, and for distri
butiouuumng tho hungry vultures that flocked
to tho putrid carcases of tho War. , Hut it
was a prosperous time 1 Thoprinting-pressos
were busy issuing “money" ami bonds,—ls
suing printed mortgages on tlm future
for u hundred years. Blueing judgments on
tho property of subsequent generations to
enrich tho thieves and villains, vagabonds
and adventurers who howled like blood
hounds for thu blood of tho brave, patriotic,
and honest. “Prosperity was on every
hand," —the price of blood rau high, and dis
honest contractors aud loyal place-holders
thought there never hud been such prosperi
ty. They think so yet, und hero in Chicago,
iu IS7'), is their organ lamenting over tho
“ good old times of tho War," when tho Gov
eminent was spending three millions of dol
lars a day iu contracts, and whoa “ prosperi
ty was seen on every hand."
The argument of this class demands a re
newal of tho War; that a navy bo built, that
a million and a half of men bo ormed, aud
clothed, aud put in tho field; that theso ar
mies skull ravage and destroy; that producers
bo taken from industry and applied to de
struction ; that tho Government will spend
three to five millions of dollars a day ; that
money shall bo cheap; that contracts be abun
dant ; and that a now season of robbery,
plunder, and corruption bo inaugurated, aud
“prosperity ro-cstablishod on every band."

Tho political prostitutes of Chicago have
notified tho tax-payers of Iho city, through
their representatives on tho County Hoard,
that they mean to Bluff the ballot-boxes at
tho next election. This is tho only explana
tion of tho refusal of tho just demand that
tho Republican party should bo represented
on tho lint of judges of election at every poll.
Tho judges whom Mr. Hesino had appointed
at his secret confab with tho Committee on
Public Service of the Comity Hoard are ex
pected to falsify tho voice of tho people.
That is what they are chosen for. The old
Tammany trick of haring duplicate ballot
boxes, properly filled beforehand, substituted
for those used at certain polls during tho
cltctiou, is to ho tried by our Tammany.
Two boxes wero stolen before tho spring
election, and doubtless served as models for
false boxes that were used then. This game
is to bo tried again. Tho old games of
stuffing tho hoses, of repeating, of rioting,
will also ho tried. Tho citizens of Chicago
are duly notified that our Tammany dynasty
means to perpetuate its power by tho same
means that tho Tammany Ring of Now York
used to maintain Itself. What are they going
to do about it ? Wo can tell them what to
do. Let every ward-club call for volunteers
forthwith and organize resolute, strong young
men into n committee for the protection of the
ballot-box in that ward. Let this Committee
bo at tbo polls from tho time tho polls open
until tho voting ends and tho votes nro counted.
Lot it keep an independent list of tho number
of votes cast, and, as far ns possible, of tbo
number cost for each ticket. Let it exorcise
tho legal right of challenge. If any attempt
is made to steal the ballot-box or to commit
fraud in tho counting, lot tho Committee pro
vent it,“by force, if necessary. If felons,
and gamblers, and amateur pugilists try to
possess themselves of tho polls, they will be
gin a game that two can play at. A bullet
fired into such a crowd cannot well go amiss.
Tho time is short. Five days honco tbo
election is to bo held. If tho Coimmttco
on Public Service had distributed circulars
announcing its intention to commit n sweep
ing fraud in order to insure tho election of
Mr. llesino and his Tammany colleagues,
tho declaration could not bo plainer. Tho
duty of honest men is clear. It is not
enough for them to go to tho polls. Somo
of thorn must stay there during tho day.
This must not bo loft to chance. Organiza
tion is absolutely necessary. Tho ward-clubs
should vio with each other in forming com
mittees for tho protection of tho ballot-box.
It will bo easier to throttle our Tweeds now
than hereafter.
Germany has taken up tho practice of
hero-worship with a vigor that must warm
tho cockles of Carlyle's heart. I'ho lost
person to receive a monument is Heinrich
Friedrich Karl, Baron von Stein, whoso
statue was unveiled in Berlin, Tuesday, by
tho Prince Imperial, “Onr Fritz.” This
eminent statesman, the forerunner of Bis
marck, whoso peaceful victories mado tiih
bloody ones of 18Gli and 1870 possible, is lit
tle known to-day. Ho was a groat states
man, not a groat fighter. A blood-stain on
the page of history attracts more attention
Ilian tho details of a peaceful revolution.
The latter is apt to ho by far tho moro im
portant. Tho man who now stands glorified
in bronze at Berlin was tho author of whnt is
known to every deep student of pol
itics as “Stein’s System.” That sys
tom has made Prussia tho strongest Power
in Europe. Tho resources of tho Empire
rest on tho broad foundations built up by tho
reforms devised and perfected by Stein and
his famous pupil, Uardenhero.* Tho work
of tho two is so intimately associated that
tho laws they had passed aro usually spoken
of as the Stein-Haudendero system. Stein,
after an honorable hut subordiu&to career in
politics, was colled to tho head of tho Prus
sian Ministry in 1807. Tho country at that
tirao wos completely in tho hands of Na
poleon. Tho King was obliged to ask tho
French Emperor whether ho would approve
of this choice. Ho graciously assented, for
ho was ignorant of tho fact that tho new Min
istor was at heart bitterly Lostilo to French
BUpremaoy. He learned his mistake within
a year, and his imperious mandate
to the Prussian ruler compelled tho
withdrawal of tho Miuistor in November,
1808. Within this brief twelvemonth, Stein
carried some remarkable reforms, and planned
others which ho left to his successor,
Hardf-niierci, to accomplish. Among these
reforms were the abolition of serfage, tho
taxation of the nobility, universal military
service, universal education, and u sweeping
laud-law, which produced as marvelous a
change as tho land-laws which were born of
tho French devolution. It erected tho force
of yeomanry, which U now tho strength of
Prussia, and tho backbone of oil peaceful
government in Frouco. England had such
yeomanry once. Her policy of concentrat
ing, instead of dividing, her land has changed
her yeomen of the’past into tho starve
ling paupers of the present. Un
der tho Prusiian system, a tenant
farmer can buy tho land ho tills at a sum
equal to a thirty-year purchase. If ho has not
the money, tho Stato gives tho landlord a
bond and collects from tho tenant a yearly
sum which extinguishes, within thirty-ouo
yours, tho principal and interest of tho bomb
No one familiar with the economic history of
tho land-question can doubt that this extreme
case of Slate interference is tho secret of tho
Amazing strength of X’russia to-day. It cre
ated tho common people, raised them from
brutish hewers of wood and drawers of water
to men. If tho mere catalogue of Stein’s
reforms is so amazing, what must tho reforms
themselves hove been ? This man’s life was
a blessing to tho world. Germany honors
herself in honoring him.
There bone important fact with reference
♦to the election next Tuesday which the peo
ple of tliis city should remember. The Op
position party and the rings in the Coanty
Hoard and City-Hall have already recognized
it, and ore shivering in their boots at the pos
sibility of defeat. Ur. Hexing knows, the
County Board knows, the whole crowd of
bummers know, that if the Dcvil-Fbh party
is defeated next Tuesday it will not only wipe
nut tho present corrupt county Ring, hut it is
tantamount to the defeat of tho city bum
mers in their designs upon tho city next year.
If tho Devil-Fish party Is defeated next Tuos
day, tho same power will vise up stronger than
ever next April, npset tho whole gang in tho
City.Hatl, and spoil all (ho plan* they hove
laid for plundering tho city for years to come.
All the good things they nro expecting to cn
joy, all tho little schemes of plunder they
havo nil their dreams of spoils,
all their plots of fraud and corrup.
lion, will bo swept away from them. Hence
not only are Mr. llesino and tho Devil-
Fish candidates on tho county ticket alarmed,
but the whole mob of county and city officials
also, and they ore making common cause in
(ho fight. If, therefore, the Kcpubltcans
win tho fight next Tuesday, they will clean
out tho whole corrupt crowd. They, will
secure the purification of county and city
politics if they gain tho preliminary battle,
ami to this end they should bend nil tbeir
energies. Tho prize is worth contending for,
and from this standpoint tho contest grows
bo momentous that every Republican in the
city and county, every man who is in favor
of political honesty and purity and good
government, should givo his individual ser
vices to the great work.
Mr. llesino, in order (hot ho may bo
elected to tho rich pickings of tho County
Treasury, asks Uio people to vote for tho re
election of two of tho men whom ho has de
nounced es members of tho Ring, and to
chooso three others of tho same character for
the County Hoard, just after tbot King has
necessitated tho raising of the county tax
levy from four milk the last year to something
more than six and a half milk the com fog year.
This is an increase by more than oar-half of
what tho levy was lost year, and within ouo
mill of tho constitutional limit. Another
year of Ring rnlo in tho County Board will
reach tho limit, and probably on on increased
valuation. Tho interest and temporary
loan account has been increased over
.SIIO,OOO. Tho estimated deficiency in
tho County Clerk's office is $17,000,
though this office used to yield a
fortune for its occupant ovory term when
tho fees belonged to the incumbent. Tho
estimated deficiency in Iho Sheriff’s office is
s77,ndO (not including tho dieting of prison
ers, which is $120,000 more), though tho Slier
ill's office formerly yielded a fortune ovory
term to its occupant when tho foes belonged
to tbo incumbent. Last year tho deficiency
in tho Sheriff'soffico was only $0i»,300,~512,-
000 less. Tho expenses of tho Coroner's de
partment have been increased from slo,fioo
to $10,1200. And ho on. These aro samples
of how it is done. And Hr. llesino, after
having denounced tho Ring ns a pack of d~
scoundrels, now supports two of tho mem
bers for re-election, and has put up two oth
ers of tho Home calibre to tako tbo places of
two honest men“Ci.ouoii and Jones —who
havo uniformly voted ogainut tho Ring. If
tho lax-payers yield to Mr. llesino in this
matter, they will havo no rifjht to complain
at being bled.
Tho Chicago Times Ims certainly siren tho
history of that SI,OOO chock of County Trcos
nrer IHller's with great particularity, which
it charges that ho recently made out in pay*
incut of a loss at ouo sitting at tho game of
poker. It gives tho namo ct£ tho hotel at
which tho loss is said to haro been m^slo; tho
name of tho Now York gamblnr who is said
to have won tho money; tho namo of tho
gentleman who is said to have cashed it, and
to whom its payment was subsequently re
fused ; and also tho names of threo or four
gentlemen who aro alleged to Imvo seen .the
chock, Tho Times further says that tho check
was paid only at tho instance of Mr. Hesin.s,
who feared tho result of an exposure ; ami
finally says to Mr. Miller, 4C Better own up 4
and save the production of documentary
proof, which is in tbio possession
of tho Times, and can bo produced."
Now, if this charge Is true, it is
a serious matter. If tho man controlling tho
county moneys has lost SI,OOO, in addition to
all the money in Ids pocket, at a single game
of poker, ho can scarcely escape tho sus
picion that ho has lost other sums at other
times. And if all this is true, tho people will
certainly hesitate about electing a man of
the present Treasurer’s choice to succeed
Idm aud count the money, Jf there is any
truth in this story, it is manifestly tho hotter
policy to elect somebody whom tho present
Treasurer docs not want to aount tbo money.
Wo print this morning a letter from Judge
Henry G. Miller, who, as ono of the organ
izers of tho Jeffersonian Club, protests
against tho indorsement of tho Hesino
ticket, and refuses to stand by it. As ho was
ono of a number who entered tho Jeffer
sonian Club with a view to tho purification of
politics, ho is naturally outraged at heiug be
trayed into the hands of tho enemy, and is
entitled to this public disavowal of any part
in tbo disreputable transaction. It is to bo
regretted that, familiar ns ho must be with
tho history of the trado, ho hau not taken
this occasion to expose it. But etcry other
member of the Jeffersonian Club who went
into it with tho same sincere motives that
actuated Judge Miller will, like him, refuse
to bo whipped into tho service of tho very
class of men whom tho Club was organized
to oppose. ’

When Mr. Hcck subscribed two thousand five
hundred dollars to acampaigu fund raised to se
cure his own election, Mr, llehino boiled over
with virtuous indignation. Now Mr. UsaiNo,
to raise funds to secure his own election, has,
through hi* Committee, made a levy of from iso
to livo hundred dollars each upon the city and
county ottlmals, and 10 per cent on the yearly
salaries of their clems and employes, which they
have to pay on penalty of their removal. The
atrocious conduct of Ur. Hock which moved Mr.
Hesinq to bursting indignation will now be duly
appreciated. When bis electioneering expenses
were to oo provided for, Mr. Muck put Lb hand
into bis own pocket for the money. Ur. ZJts
sko, to provide for bis electioneering expenses,
puts hb baud into other people's pockets.
