lie Coming Election.—How
Ma't«n Stand In this Connty.—
TH© Kins on tko Anxlona Sent.
—Their Procranme.
Bui little more than a month re
mains before the November Election]—
In most counties nominations have been
made, but here no convention has yet
been called. The reason is that the
old Court House Clique in Austin who
have heretofore driven the people un
der a lash of tyranny, are this year met
at every corner with an emphatic No.
Hundreds of men that have worn the
yoke for years and in comparative sil
ence, positively and unqualifiedly assert
that they* will bear it no longer.—
This is not the impulse of a moment.
It is the firm resolve of candid, think
ing citizens based upon a .settled con
viction after mature deliberation,' that
the safety of the party and the highest
welfare of the people demand that the
present administration of county officers
should be changed. This condition of
things staggers the old ring leaders.—
In the near future they read the cer
tain overthrow of their dynasty. But
they will not die, without a desperate
struggle. No, 'they have too much at
stake. New incumbents in office would
lay bare before the people the gigantic
frauds that have been perpetrated for
years. Daily their counsels are held
and in desperation they exclaim, No
we cannot we must not have a new man
in the Treasurers office this fall unless
we ciih'coutrol him. Far better (hat
we spend thousands of dollars to pre
vent it.
The programme as at present adopt
ed so far as we are able to learn iathis.
The convention, provided only one is
called, is to be delayed until the very
eve cf election, so that but few towns
will be prepared for it. Assistance is
to be secured by making pledges to men
in various parts of the county. If in
this way a town or two can be Secured
the delegates can easily be harnessed
into the old traces, after they get to
the convention. With one man work
ing for Representative in .LeRoy, an
other for Treasurer in Frankford or
Racine, it is hoped a little aid can [be
secured. There are always men Enough
who can be duped and sold year after
year in this way. .Not succeeding in
getting a majority of delegates in this
way the old system of packiug caucus
es and getting up bogus delegations
will be resorted to, and an attempt will
be made to bully the convention as was
done laBt year at LeRoy and ride over
the will of the majority.
It may as well be understood first as
last, that with the present prospects of
defeat, the old ring have no intention of
allowing any convention to be a fair
expression of ihc will of the people
They are too
Well
versed in frauds, to
allow their power to slip away when in
trigue and corruption will save it.—
Again, in the event that neither of the
above plans is made to win, it is their
intention to fuse with tho Democrats
and run a bolting ticket. Snow thinks
he succdeded in this once and why
not again We urge the people to be
active and vigilant, constantly on the
lookout for tricks and chicanery, such
as we hare sct-ferth-. Last year a month
previous to the election we predicted
that Le Roy would be sold out, aud
that the ting would l'use with Demo'
crats our predictions were verified.
One word further. Send no man that
ea» be bought, as a delegate to tjie con
vention. Pick tried and true men this
time if never before.
Shallowness.
Some- men's brains are easily con
fused. They can see no diffcrcncc
between a principle and its advocates.
Some editors are so shallow as to mis
take a cause or principle for the men
who representor believe it. Hence,
instead of using arguments to disprove
a doetrine, they traduce those who
preooh the doctrine. What logic
As if to prove that a minister is bad,
wicked and corrupt, would abo prove
the Christian religion a fraud upon the
people. This is precisely the course
pursued by the editors a€ the insignifi
cant partnership concern known as the
Democrat and Register. Inste id of
attempting to disprove the arguments
and facts presented by the
TRANSCRIPT,
they spend their breath and strength
barking at the man, whom they igno
rantly surmise to be the editor. Uqablc
tp present a fact or figure, they resort
'to filth, and'billingsgate too low for the
0TPFT
denizens of a doggery. Go on gentle
men, your shallowness is transparent
and you are cuttiug your own throats
faster than wo could do it for you, should
we make the attempt.
People's Movement.—Who Op
pones Them.—TUey Can be Pre
vented.
There are greater calamities which
can befall a people than the disruption
of a political party. One of them is the
perpetuation of public. corruption and
fraud. In quito a large number of
counties in this State, political organi
zations arc now being formed under the
name of "Peoples' Movement." In
most:cases the leaders of these move
ments are, and have been active and
staunch friends and supporters of the
Republican party. A large majority
of tho men who identify themselves with
the new organizations are Republicans
In several counties, the organization
has already assumed formidable propor
tion. It, then, becomes eyery consis
tent Republican who is devoted to the
interests of the party to inquire as to
the cause of this disaffection. It is too
serious a matter to be cast off with
sneere and ridicule. To malign the lea
den does not meet the emergency. A
temporary browbeating into silence
would only prepare the way for another
and more serious out-cropping of the
same difficulty.
In our judgment these movements are
nnmistakeable evidence of something
wrong in the party, some prevailing evil
which if not remedied soon, will work
eventual Tuin. In every instance so
far as we are informed, frauds corrup
tion in office, burdonsome taxation, the
sudden accumulation of wealth by coun
ty officers who get small salaries, per
verting public offices into instruments
of private gain,—the continuing of' a
few men around the Court House and
County Seat for the purpose of manip
ulating and controling local politics,
packing caucuses and conventions—'
some one or all of these are alledged as
the ground of action. Mo*)t Republi
can journals of the State deprecate and
ridicule these movements and without
sufficient ground, alledge that they are
the offspring of disappointed office seek
ers, while Democratic editors hail them
es harbingers of permanent dissolution
of the party when they can step in and
reap the spoils.
The wisest course on the part of Re
publicans, is manifestly to commence
the work of reform. The party which
liaii not the disposition nor ability to
correct its own evils, must be short lived.
It is much better for the party to ac
knowledge that many of the present
office holders are venal and corrupt, and
to set about the work of removing them
at once, than to deny the truth for the
sake of spoil, and. lead our fenemies to
take advantage of the growing disaffec
tion among the people. As a general
rule the newspapers throughout the
State, which pour otu their bitterness
upon the leaders of peoples movements
are. in the present enjoyment of ill gotten
gain, which these political rings have
plundered from the- people. They
would rather the party goto.destruction
than give up their crumbs. Let the
leading Republican journals of the
State, including the Saint Paul Press,
that notorious father of rings and venal
ity, and opposer of reform. Come out
and advocate the removal of every man
from office about' whom even the sus
picion of corruption has gathered, and
these lamented "People's Movements"
would soon cease to exist. If a party
wojldlive it must be pure, and if it has
not vitality enough to purify itself its
days are numbered.
DKal-praetice.
Last week the Register, a dimiutive
sheet pnblished in this place, devoted
about one-half its space to the subject of
Therapeutics and Malpractice. The
Register evidently likes Doctors. It
likes their medicines It swallows any
kind of a dose administered by a man
that smells of old fashioned saddle bags.
Furthermore it is .deeply devoted to
quackery—whether from habit or in
stinct we are unable to say, but true it
is that anything or anybody gotten up
upon the principle of deception receives
frnm If a full I]us_dis
sertation on malpractice seems to have
been spontaneous, and why should it not
bo, coming from a journal that has never
adopted any other practice. But there
was an obj cct in printing this particular
article at this pa rticuhr time. A thick'
headed, conceited pseudo disciple of
Esculapeus has been sued for making
a poor man a life cripple an the result
of a simple pistol shot entering the leg
below the knee. An artery bad been
severed and the brainless impost it did
not know enough to take it up, in fact
did not know it ought to be taken up.—
Instead of taking out the ball he let it
rot out. This quack is to be tried, by a
jury of his peers from the county. He
don't dare to meet the case squarely, so
he hires the little crumb-picking county
paper to try to prejudice people in his
favor by publishing an old case picked
up in the British Provinces. American
cases did not suit his purposes. The
case is this A sickly old lady, CO
years of age broke her thigh. The doc
tor set it three days after it was broken.
She was then taken suddenly ill with
cholera morbus, and entreated the sur
geon to let the limb go and save her Ufp.
He did so and. when she got up found
the broken leg shorter than the other
She then got mad and sued the Dr ., and
the court very properly said she was
not entitled to recover any thing. This
was a very different case from tho one
the Register is hired to gloss over.—
Here a well, midle-aged man was shot
with a small pistol. The shot entered
below the knee, and the man should have
been well in a month or less, and would
have been if properly treated.. Try again
little crumb-picker, your quackery is
too transparent.
Letter from California.
Through the kindness of J. G.
Wright, Esq., we are permitted to pub
lish a portion of a private letter received
fiom Rev. A. J. Nelson, sincc he
reached California. It was not intended
for the public eye but it contains many
interesting particulars which newspaper
writers too frequently overlook.
Santa Clara, Cal., Sep. 3d, 1869.
DEAR BRO.
I have just finished my week's labor
this is only my second week, yet I've
seen and learned much of California.
With the exception of the dust and
the mixed population I like the State
even better than I expected. Yet the
dust is no more than I have seen in
Ohio, and it blows less than in Minn.,
and is by no means as disagreeable as
the Minnesota winds that fill the eyes
with sand. The population is a hetero
geneous hotch-potch of every nation un
der heaven, yet the Yankee element
largely predominates and is rapidly ab
sorbing all others. The people are or
derly and genteel, in all the towns I've
been in, I have not seen as many drun
ken men as I did in Austin in one day.'
The saloons will not average more than
half the number as Minn., and more
orderly. The Yankee population is
genteel and kind we have been re
ceived as kindly and shown as much
attention as in any plaoe we have lived,
and we soon expect a large circle
friends who no doubt will seem to us
as good and true as any we have left.
This is the land of fruit and flowers.
We have now all around us the finest
orchards, gardens and homes I ever
saw some are truly magnificent. Mr.
Pierce, a gentleman who came, to this
State a few years ago, a poor young
man, has made a fortune mining and
now as a monthly income of $20,000.—
His home is princely, orchards and
trees, flowers and fountains are so inter
mingled as to be a treat to look at.—
There are single homes here worth half
ofMower county.
There is no mining near us save the
great Quick Silver Mine—the. largest iu
the
World
which is in sight of our house
though fifteen miles distant. Our town
is in a valley nearly surrounded by
niountains so that we are in a circum
ference about twenty miles across. The
mountains are thousands of feet high,
and seem tons about a mile
off,
when
they are ten. The town looks some
thing lik6 Winona in June—full of
trees and shrubs and flowers. It covers
about as much ground, but only con
tains about one-fourth the people.—
Here about four families are the most
that live on a block, and some occupy
several blocks. Everybody has his own
orchard, fruit is abundant so that it is
worth nothing but the price paid the
hucksters for picking it up and bring
ing it to you. Tuns are rotting on the
ground. We have all we want of every
kind for going after it, and many bas
kets sent us. I well give you the bill
of fare of
fruit now as we have them:—
Apples of all varieties, peaches, plums,
they call them plums but they look like
the fruit of the egg plant as big as
goose eggs and delicious prunes, figs,
apricots, pears, grapes, black-berries,
rasp-berries straw-berries etc,, etc.
We are living on fruit, sweet pota
toes and coffee mostly. Melons of all
kinds are abundant, so with all kinds of
vegetables—potatoes, cabbage, onions
tomatoes, etc., better and bigger than I
ever saw before. We can live about
twice as well for one-half the money as
in Austin.'
No body seems concerned about
"making a living." "The living," seems
a sure thing in this spontaneous land.
Men are trying to get rich and others
take life easy.
Wheat is perfectly white, we have
the nicest flour and whitest bread
ever saw, no rain falls on the grain at
all. The harvest is cut just as men
feci like it. They seem to be harvest
ing all summer, so they keep plowing
and sowing all winter, everything is net
crowded into a few weeks here. Njv
ture sgems to wait on man and coax
him to work in this latitude, instead of
putting on the lasli and driving him as
in Minn. They use machinery to per
fection. They do all their threshing
by steam and much of other work.—
The Yankee seems to think that brains
are worth more than mucle, and work
only occasionally. They drive bar
gains &c. The Spanish are too lazy-to
work, the miner too wild and John Chi
naman sceuis to be destined to take, the
place of the proud Yankee and lazy
Spaniard and the wild mustang as the
laborers of this land. John
quiet, honest, genteel, industrious, do
cile and clean. They dress neatly even
at work they look like the waiters in
a first class hotel the boys plague
them, and pull their pig tails &c., so
that most of thent tie them up and put
them under their-hats.
We have a good house and ten rooms
about an acre of ground, fruit and flow
ers and cistern well and fine fountains
constantly palying. If Sister Wright
was here she would not sleep any for a
week, looking at the flowers and shrubs.
The Winona green house would not
compare with our front yard, some of
these little plants kept in a cigar-box
ave too large here for the entire
building, all grow out of doors, on high
trellis, or climb the vqrandas and cov
er tho roof of the houses and creep in
to the bed room window and twine
themselves around the posts
BO
that
they fall upon the face at night and
steal a kiss from the sleeper.
*.
Property is high here but not much
higher than in Austin after all.
The excitement at San Diago in
creases. Bro. Brown 'of Mimi.' has
just gone down.
I send some flowers picked from the
highest point on the P. "Railroad,- by
my own hand 80G6 feet above the level
of the sea, or about 7000 ft. higher than
Austin. I plucked them while the
train stopped twenty minutes, rather
than to eat my dinner.:—Oh, wild, vast,
grand old mountains, why tl^is wild con

reported to the District Court that nihe
tenths of all the crime committed is
caused by intoxicating' liquors. They
should recommend that the Commission
