Our opinion still is that the interfer

occasions is an outrage on the party,
that it is daily becoming more odious,
end that, in this contest it did William
Windora more harm than good.—St.
Well said, and yet when "banded fed
eral officials" had controlled every vil
lage and county office in the First Dis
trict for years, and the people at last
protested against the everlasting and
intolerable rule of the federal "ma
chine" all the St. Paul and Minneapolis
papers threw thier weight with the
machine and fought for it in the First
District as though it were their own lo
cal fight. Those Republicans who dar
ed to buck against the federal jugger
naut are cooly read out of the party by
the little flies that ride on the horns of
tho-sacred" ox, and Gen. Baker and
W.'W. Braden will be scratched nu
merously throughout the First District
because they refused to fall down and
worship the machine. And all St. Paul
and Minneapolis have helped to fix the
power of the machine upon the First
We see no reason for the Worthington.
A A N E to draw the Duunell-Ward
fight of last fall into the campaign this
year. That Braden and Baker were
nominated in the recent state conven
tion is true, but that signifies nothing
so far as last year's unpleasantness is
concerned. Among those who support
ed Braden and Baker in the state con
vention are active friends of Dunuell
both si year ago and now. The fact is
that the old sore played no part in the
nomination of either, and it is hardly
the fair thing to rejoice over them as an
anti-Dunnell victory. Last year's sore
vre hope is healed, and will not break
out in this or any subsequent campaign.
Capt. Braden is one of the stalwart Re
publicans of the state, and we can
cheerfully support him regardless of the
past differences, which ought to be hur
ried, and are, so far as the Reporter and
Braden are concerned.—Windom Re
We knew that, of course. Our article
was meant for ITcbles county, where
every man who opposed Dunnell
has been read out of the party by the
"machine." But they are now in this
fix: they are supporting Baker and Bra
den on the State ticket, and refusing to
support Republicans on the county tick
et because they did not support Dun
uell last fall. The fact is, the 'straights'
of Nobles county never knew any other
test of Republicanism but -loyalty to
Dunuell." And they have carried it
into every home office and into about
every relation of life.
Two year aso the editor of the A
TANCE* thought the liberties of the peo
people of the United States were en
dangered by tiie election of a sheriff for
a second term and wanted the constitu
tion of the State amended so as to pre
vent such a calamity. Last Saturday
he helped to "nominate" R. R. Miller,
the present sheriff, for a second term
and his paper will undoubtedly support
The Journal is wrong as usual. J. A.
Town was up for a third term and we
opposed it. Chadwick is up now for a
hird term and we oppose it. We sup
ported Chadwick for his his second
term. Mills, Shepard and Miller are
up for a second term and we favor it.—
In rare instances, where there is some
special adaptability, or where there is
some special public reason for it, we
shall favor a third term. We were op
posed to Pillsbury having a third
What we wish to say to the voters of
Nobles county about a second terra is
this: It is customary when officials
have done especially well to give them
a second term. Mills, Shepard and
Miller have done especially well and ev
ery man in the county knows it. They
each may have some personal enemies
who will not support them, but the
great bulk of the people are friendly to
them. The politicians alone wish to
beat them because they cannot use
them. They are all three ex-soldiers
who made a splendid record during the
war and have also made a splendid re
cord as county officers. Mills and Mil
ler are Republicans and Shepard is a
Democrat. The "straight" Republican
put a Democrat or two on their ticket
every campaign and support them.—
Moreover, in county affairs, they are
run by Peter Thompson, a Democrat.
So that parly lines are not drawn in
county politics, neither by the ring Re
publicans nor the Independents. It is
not a matter of party politics save as
the ring politicians endeavor to make
it so. It is a matter of securing the
bust men for county offices, and we
claim to have them on our ticket. They
have been tried and found faithful and
competent. They have given us the
best administration of the county of
fices we have had so far.
Support of the nominee of the late
convention, therefore, is nothing more
or less than the indorsement of the dis
reputable methods by which the results
were obtained. Fealty to party under
such circumstances is fealty tb fraud

The people should remember that
Sheriff Miller was oblieeri to pay fully

Also that a very large proportion of
the legitimate business of his office has
been placed in the hands of other par
ties, J. A. Town to make collections,
and serve notices, and in the hands of
the city marsball to make arrests, &c
in criminal cases. The Thompson
Bank, Judge Wilson and others have
taken this course.
Miller's actual receipts for official fees
haye been very light, in comparison to
what they would otherwise have been.
An extraordinary effort is being made
to defeat him. This should be count
eracted by active exertions on the part
of his friends, of those for whom he has
worked in the past, and for whom he is
still working. He is deserving of sup
port for his sterling qualities as a man
and for his official integrity and efficien
Most of this applies also to Capt.
Mills. He was put to the expense of an
election contest because the old ring of
ficials were unwilling to surrender of
fices after they were fairly beaten. A
large part of the first year's salary of
both Mills and Miller went to pay the
expenses of this contest. Even if there
had been no contest, they would have
been entitled to a second term, but
with the contest they have a double
claim to re-election.
Remember the Town-Walker contest,
and vote for Mills and Miller.
INDEPENDENCE IS POLITICS.
It is certainly gratifying to the A
VANCE to see all around indications of
that indeiiendence in politics which we
have asserted for some years, as our
readers well know. In county politics
especially we hava fought steadily for
independence and against the binding
force of packed conventions and the
lash of the "machine." We have as
serted that the caucus and delegate
convention system of the Republican
party was its curse, and that the pri
mary election system was the true one
for selecting candidates for either
party. Now we notice that the Far
mer's Alliance, which met recently in
Chicago, declared against nominating
conventions and in favor of a direct
vote of the members of the paity in
making nominations. We notice also
that the Pioneer-Press endorses this
resolution of the Alliance. The A
VANCE declared also in favor of inde
pendent candidates, that is, of indepen
dent announcements by the candidates
themselves "and we are gratified to see
more of this in the surrounding coun
ties and also in the larger fields of
State politics. But on this point, both
for an example and for vigorous com
ment on independence of the machine,
we cannot do better than to quote the
following from the St. Paul Pioneer
There is trouble abroad in the most
submissive and boss-ridden State of the
Union. Don Cameron has a positive
genius for keeping in good repair and
running order the serviceable machine
which his father bequeathed to him,
but occasionally even his astute tactics
cannot avoid the imminent danger of
a breakdown. Pennsylvania politics
are rendered interesting reading bv the
course of Mr. Wolfe, an energetic" and
thoroughly independent Republican,
who 1ms announced himself as a candi
date for the office of state treasurer,
and is making a lively ca.vass. On
general principles there is nothing rep
rehensible abnut this on the contrary,
it is an eminently healthful sign, indi
cating an exercise cf individual judg
ment and a reliance upon popular sym
pathy which may do much to dissipate
the corruption bred by political stagna
tion. Well-meaning people, really
anxious for good government, are loo
apt to consider nowadays that a man
who comes before them'as a candidate
for office by any other means than that
of securing a certain number of cau
cuses and thereby becoming the "regu
lar" nominee of a regular party, is
guilty of a heinous crime. They forget
that parties are but conveniences for
more readily expressing the concrete
will of the people, and that when they
fail or refuse to do this, they are wor
thy of no more respect than a wornout
steam eugine,unable to cany p-issengers
to their destination. The buhl action
of appeal by an individual from the de
cision of a party convention to the de
cision of the people is, in its"lf, indi
rect evidence that such appeal be
justified. For were it otlienvi.se, the
ridicule attached to his position would
be worse than his inevitable over
whelming defeat and Mr. Wolfe does
not appear, in the past, a fit target for
either ridicule or abuse. Mr. Wolfe de
serves the hearty good wishes of all
who are opposed to the depotism of the
machine and strong-man theory of
government. Independents are "very
numerous just now. and thev will be
glad to hear Pennsylvania give a good
account of him.

It was his (Bloom's) proposition to

it for the least money.—Journal.
But he didn't let it to the lowest bid
der. Craft's bid was i?60 lower than
Barber's, but Bloom and Crosby held
out tor Barber, and Bloom changed the
record so as to make it falsify what

of the Nobles County Board and said it
was 50 cents. Anything, you know, to

to change the law relating to their per

Bloom became so economical (while he
went on drawing his per diem iu full)
that he proposed to Ogle to have the
county printing done for nothing, in
stead of 50 cents a folio, and the inno
cent and saintly Ogle consented on the
condition offered by Bloom, that they
would raise his salary as County Su
perintendent and make it up to him.

THE REGISTER OF DEEDS.
Letter from Mr. Parsons—How Chad
trick Runs the Office—Annoyances and
Unjust Discriminations—Sold out to
Thompson like the Board..
To the People of Nobles County:
Heretofore I have always supported
Joseph Chadwick, for the Office of Reg
ister of Deeds. Chadwick was poor and
crippled and 1 thought the office would
give him a chance to be independent of
public charity and make a good living
for himself and family. When others
found fault with him and said he was
incompetent and .couldn't lift and
handle the books, we said he was com
petent and worked and talked and did
all we could to prevent the nomination
and election of another candidate. Yet
I kuew that when I wished to look at
the records, or have a deed or mortgage
filed or recorded or an abstract made,
I would have to go to the Court House
and finding no one in charge there, I
would have to go to Chad wick's house
and from there out on the street to
hunt up some one belonging to Chad
wick's family to do the business. It is
a well known fact, and cannot be dis
puted, that during the last four years,
or ever since Chadwick has been in of
fice, the Register's office has been closed
nine-tenths of the time during business
hours. For four years we have put up
with all this for the purpose of making
him independent of public charity and
to give him a start in life.
To repay us he has turned traitor to
to his friends, and directly against our
interests, and for the purpose of re-e
lection he has gone over to the enemy,
and has appointed Peter Thompson,
Deputy Register of Deeds, an office
which no honorable man placed in the
same position as Peter Thompson,
would accept. My patrons have mort
gages on record in Nobles county, ex
ceeding in value a hundred thousand dol
lars, and Deeds and Sheriff Certificates
to fifty thousand dollars worth more.
Peter Thompson owns some of the land
which mortgages are against, and is in
terested by second mortgages on more.
A very slight change in the records, a
stroke of the pen, and Mr. Thompson
could make a thousand dollars, and no
testimony on earth could be brought to
prove that he did it. Six months after,
a year perhaps, when the mistake might
be found out, Mr. Thompson could say
it was an error of the former register,
and no one would be the wiser. Mr.
Thompson may be honest enough not
to do anything of the kind, but I in
sist that he ought not to have the
chance. No man engaged in the loan
ing business and interested in mortga
ges to the extent ot Peter Thompson's
interest in Nobles county ought to be
allowed free access to the books of the
Register's office. It is giving him an
advantage over me and any other man
in lie business.
Since I have been in business I have
done all I could to bring cheap mouey
into the country. My rates now are
one per cent, less than any one else in
tha business. I haye spent a large
share of my profits iu advertising and
in trying to induce capitalists and
others to locate here. I have had and
still have the good of the country at
heart. My greatest desire is to see this
country and its people prosperous. I
insist that I should have a fair show
and the same rights and privileges that
are accorded to others. I do not ask to
be Deputy Register or to have free ac
cess to the Register's books at any hour
of the day or night, but I do ask that
disinterested men only be allowed the
privilege. Joseph Chadwick told me
himself it was wrong, and he knew it
was giving Thompson undue advanta
ges over myself and others, and he
promised that if myself and Mr. Smith
felt uneasy about it that he would see
Thompson about it and make a change
to some disinterested man. Just be
fore he was to leave for the East, Mr.
Elihu Smith and myself called upon
him and askttd him to appoint some,
other man. We told him plainly that we
thought no man interested in mortga
ges to the extent of Thompson ought to
have charge. He said he kuew it was
wrong, but was going to leave Thomp
son in charge and finally got mad and
ordered me out oi his house.
If it was necessary in order to keep
him off the county and he would ap
point a disinterested deputy, I don't
know but what I would still support
him. Jf he hud any just claim upon
the county or even upon the Republican
party the case might warrant forbear
ance lint he lias made enough to start
iu some business which he may be com
petent to manage. It is no longer ne
cessary that he should be supported out
His claims upon the party should not
be heavy, as 1 understand from good
authority he was always a Democrat
until it became necessaiy in order to
get elected to office to be a Republican.
Where was he iu 1801, 1802, 1803 and
1801V Was he iu the army of his coun
try fighting for the Union or off in Can
ada out of the draft. Let him answer
tnese questions and then stand up bold
ly and challenge the te of a Union
soldier who served all through the war
on tha ground of his being a Democrat.
The people of Nobles county and espec
ially the Independent Republicans and
Democrats have done well by Mr. Chad
wick. They took him up out of the
very depth of despondency and by giv
ing him the office of Register and bear
ing with his faults for four years have
placed him in a very comfortable posi
tion. Is ow, 1 say it is no more than
fair that he should give place to a crip
pled Union soldier whose ciaims both
upon the party and the people are
founded on justice and right. Let us
have the office Oiled by a man compe
tent to fill it, and at the same time ren
der needed aid to an old resident, a sol
died, comrade and a worthy man. Re
member that when B. F. Johnson was
with you in the army fighting the bat
tle of his country, Mr. Chadwick was
in the rear and that his country was
doing all it could to aid and encourage
your enemy. The contest is between a
crippled soldier and a citizen who has
grown proud and haughty over the
money he has made by reason «f the of
fice given him through your suffrages,
and that for the sake of re-election he
has turned traitor and uses his office
to discriminate against your interests
as well as mine.
I ask only that which is fair and
right. Having worked my way up
from the ranks. ask nothing more
than a fair and open field and a chance,
that if I can make yon a loan cheaper,
fell your farm for more, get more for
your hay and prod nee, and can induce
more capital into the country than oth
ers, that my rights shall be respected
and the interests of my patrons guard
ed the same as others. I cannot stand
and be discriminated against by both
the Board of County Commissioners
and the Register of Deeds. I want
nothing to do with politics. Give the
county fair and impartial officers, men
who will work in your interests, and I
will not say a word.

the war with having seen the hardest
service and performed the greatest
feats in hard marches and effective
cavalry service of any other in the
western department. His regiment
went in 1,500 strong, not including re
cruits, and was mustered out with 427
men including officers. The officers of
his squadron testify that he performed
more active duty than any other mauiu
his company. His military record is
all that could be asked. He was not

Canada to escape the draft. In politics
Mr. Miller is a Republican. He has

Bloom and Crosby, as County Com

drawn precisely what the law allows,
nothing more nor less. When the as

by the State Board, exceeds one million
dollars, the Auditor is allowed 'two
tenths of a mill on each dollar valu

salary for 1880 was based on the val

Walker, which was $21,074 in excess
of one million. He was then entitled
to §202.22 for clerk hire.
