Mr. Gilfillan lectured at Turner Hall,
Saturday and Sunday evenings on the
subject of "Labor and Legislation. "On
Saturday evening there were between
twenty and thirty persons present,
nearly all of whom seemed to give the
closest attention to the lecturer. Hav
ing heard several of those who have
listened to Mr. Gilfillan on former oc
casions, speak of him in glowing
terms as a lecturer, we expected to lis
ten to some plain and convincing argu
ments in favor of greenbacks but our
limited faculties failed to see any clear
ness in the so-called proofs which the
speaker claimed to make. He said the
contraction of the currency and the re
sumption of specie payment is the cause
of the hard times in this country, that
this has caused the closing of so many
of the large factories, thereby turning
thousands of workingmen out of
ployment, that they were then com
pelled to go cut in seal ch of employ
ment, and that these are the persons
styled -'tramps." He failed, however,
to state why so many of those innocent
"tramps" refuse to work while on
their wanderings, although fair wages
We expected to hear the speaker men

calculated to remedy the existing evils,
but this he failed to do.
We believe that there is not a party,
or faction of a party, in the whole
United States that has abetter store of
names than the Democratic party of
Brown county. They come before the
people eveiy fall nnder a different
name. In 1874 they made the issue
as the "Farmer's Laborer's Anti
Monopoly Party." In 1875 it was "All
those opposed to the Republican
Party." In 1870 they styled themselves
"The Democratic and Liberal Repub
lican Party." In 1877 they made it
short and called it "The Independ
ents In 1878, two weeks ago, they
called a straight out and out Democrat
ic convention, while now they are out
with a call for a county convention as
"The Independent Party." The same
mun, with but little variation, always
issues the call as "Chairman of the Co.
Com.,"the same men attend the prima
ries, the same men are always sent up
to the county conventions, and theThere
name is only changed from year to
year so as to catch the largest number
of independent voters. We do not
wish to convey by the foregoing that
we have a word of complaint to make,
for, on the contrary, we think the
names are all pretty and high sounding,
and some of them have answered their
purpose quite well, but merely mention
the matter to illustrate that our Dem
ocratic friends think that there is a
good deal in a name, or at least in many
GOOD CIVIL SERVICE APPOINT-
MENTIt is with pleasure that we an
nounce the appointment of Julius
Kirschstein as route agent between El
and New Ulm. The permanent
establishment of daily mail service
west of New Ulm has necessitated the
appointment of.an additional agent,
andMaj. Strait lias done himself great
credit and secured the postal service
an efficient servant by this appoint
ment, which is considered one of the
best that has ever been made for the
postal service from this district. Mr.
Kirschstein has been in our post office
in the capacity of Asst. Postmaster
ever since we took chaige of the office,
some five yeais two and a half months,
during which time he has not missed a
single day. His obliging and accom
modating manner has won him a host
of friends, all of whom will be glad to
hear of his good fortune. He received
his papers last Friday and went on the
road Monday morning.
If some of the country postmasters
adjacent to New Ulm would study up
the law a little on what constitutes
mailable matter, and not allow every
thing to go into the mails, they would
save our postmaster and themselves a
great deal of trouble. All communi
cations that contain any writing what
ever, no matter whether the envelope
is closed or not, are subject to regular
letter postage. By a recent ruling
samples of flour are also prohibited
from passing through, the nlails. Last
week some one forwarded in the mail,
as far as this place, a green, stinking,
jack rabbit skin and if this thing of
forwarding unmailabje matter, and
insufficiently stamped, is not
discontinued our postmaster says he
will be compelled to report negligent
officers of the service to headquarters.
Death of an old Settler*
Death has called from our midst an
other old settler. Henry Haamann, of
town Cottonwood, died last Sunday
evening, Sept. 15th, of typhus fever,
after about four, weeks illness. Mr.
Haamann was one of our oldest sett
lers, having located in Brown county
in 1856. We are also informed that his
whole family, consisting of wife and
five children, is down with the fever.

curred at Lake Kampeska, last Satur

with a shot gun, finally started to run

was armed, but with a small revolver.
After running a distance Owens turned
and fired both charges of the shot gun
at Balls, but without effect, and then
continued to run. In the chase they
came across a brother of Balls who was
