Election this year comes on Nov.

Dr. R. V. Pierce, the great patent
medicine man, has been nominated
for Congress by the Republicans of
Buffalo, N Y.
The town of Edenburg, Pa., was
almost totally destroyed by fire last
Sunday morning. 225 houses were
burned including the business por
tion of the place.
A late Constantinople dispatch
says the port has received informa
tion that the Russians have recom
menced marching on Adrianople.
The Turks have mounted guns on
the Constantinople lines.
The Republicans of the Senatorial
district composed of Nicollet and
Renville counties held their conven
tion at X.Brunner's Hotel, in West
Newton, yesterday "but up to the
time we go to press we were unable
to learn who received the nomina
tion.
The Greenback-National party
has so far elected three members of
the next Congress, but all three are
Democrats and will vote as the
Democratic Congressional caucus
dictates.
The Republicans of Meeker coun
ty last week adopted the following
sensible resolution:
Resolved, That we object to the
present mode of grading wheat, and
that we reccommend our senator and
representative to do all in their pow
er to accomplish some legislation at
the earliest possible day to correct
the errors that now exist in regard
to grading wheat.
The expedition that was senl out
against the Cheyennes has proved a
complete failure, so far as the cap
ture of the renegade Indians is con
cerned.It failed because it was illy fitt
ed out, and the unreliable character of
the scouts furnished the expedition
The savages ^baffled the troops at
every point, and led them into the
Sand Hills, from which they might
never have emerged. Thornburg's
command was without water for 70
hours. Their rations had also given
out two days before they made a
junction with Carlton's command,

which was but little better off than
Thornburg's.
The reports from the yellow fever
districts are still discouraging. In
New Orleans there were 988 new
cases and 340 deaths during the past
week. Total cases in the .city, 11,-
206 total deaths, 3,400. For the
week ending Oct. 10th there were
157 deaths in Memphis total deaths,
2,784. While the above reports are
bad enough, the greatest fatality ex
ist in the suberbs. The relief steam
er on its mission of mercy has reach
ed Vicksburff.
During a performance last Thurs
day night at the Coliseum Theater,
Liverpool, England, which is now
used as a music hall, a fight occurred
under the gallery. The audience
hearing, but being unable to see the
disturbance, became alarmed. The
cry of fire was raised and the people
rushed to the doors and some slid
down the pillars of the gallery upon
the heads of the occupants otthe pit.
Thirty-five men and lads and two
women were sufficated and many
persons were severely injured.
By an article printed elsewhere it
will be seen that Hon. Henry Pceh
ler has written to a gentleman in
Dakota county acknowledgeing that
is in sympathy with the
ge
reenback party, and declares
is support of the main prin
ciples of their creed. W are also re
liably informed that he has written
letters to hard-money Democrats,
who have sounded him on the finan
cial question, disclaiming any green
back sentiments, and assured them
that his sympathy was for honest
money. Mr. Pcehler's financial po
sition seems to be "anything" to
beat Major Strait.
The election on Tuesday, the 8th
inst., in the four States of Ohio, In
diana, Iowa and West Virginia, did
not result so largely favor of the
Republicans as the first telegrams
led us to believe.
In Ohio the Republican majority
tor the State ticket is from 8,000 to
10,000,but through tne gerrymander
ing of theDemocratic Legislature last
winter the Nationals and Democrats
have secured eleven out of the twen
ty Congressmen.
In Indiana the Republicans elect
ed six and the Democrats and Na
tionals seven Congressmen. The
senate stands 24 Democrats, 25 Re
publicans and 1 National. I the
house the Republicans will probably
have 45, Democrats 51, Nationals 4.
The Democrats and Nationals will
have a majority of 10 on joint ballot,
which secures the election of Voor
hees for Senator.
Iowa has gone Republican of
course, but the Greenbackers and
Democrats have succeeded in elect
ing two of their candidates for Con
gress.
West Virginia, which has herto
fore been represented in Congress by
a solid Democratic delegation, has
elected one, and probably two, of
the Republican candidates for Con
gress.
The Chicago Times (Ind.) when
commenting upon the result, says:
"Stated in brief, the result shows
a large increase of the administration
party strength in Ohio, in Iowa and
West Virginia/while in benighted
Indiana the administration party
"holds its own." Thus the fiat lu
nacy, suddenly risen to a formidable
political force in New England, the
natural home of hard-money senti
ment, is beaten and effectively
checked on its own western ground
by the administration party, whose
timid chiefs did not know and were
afraid to trust the strength of that
party by taking an honest, open,
unequivocal stand in favor of fiscal
honesty.

Hastings New Era (Ind
Hon. Henry Pcehler has written a
letter to Cook, of this city, in
which he acknowledges himself in
sympathy with the greenback party,
and declares his support of the mam
principles of their creed. So it ap
pears that the two elements must
necessaVily combine to fight Strait.
How will this be received by all true
Democrats?
*& **fe i^i,
STRAIT VS. PCBHLER.
W are glad to notice that the
Republican papers throughout the
district, as far as we have seen, with
out an exception are according to
Mr. Pcehler, the Democratic candi
date for member of Congress, the
respectful and courteous treatment
which one gentleman deserves from
another. W are sorry, though not
surprised, in noticing that the Dem
ocratic papers throughout the dis
trict, with now and then an honor
able exception, are conducting their
canvass against Mr. Strait in the
usual Democratic style of personal
detraction and abuse.
The St. Paul Grlobe having struck
the key note, all the lesser hounds
join the cry. Here is a choice
specimen from the Globe of the 7th
inst:
"Hod Stiait,the National banker,wlio
wants to go to Congiess from the Sec
ond Distuct, is a man who will not
stop at dishonesty if it puts money ia
his purse."
Now the writer of that paragraph
knows very well that H. Strait
is an honorable high-toned gentle
man a man whose word in business
circles is as good as his bond a man
who has made a record as a represen
tative in Congrefcs alike honorable to
himself and the State which he in
part represents. The author of this
dirty little screed is not unadvised
of the fact that Major Strait has won
for himself the reputation of being
one of the most efficient and success
ful workers in the house. The Glebe
man is fully posted in all that our
representative has done for his con
stituents in procuring the passage
of bills for their benefit and relief in
various ways, and he knows that
his experience and the knowledge ac
quired during the last six years, not
only of the needs of his constituents,
but of the means to be used in ob
taining such legislation as they re
quire, renders him an hundred fold
the better man of the two to repre
sent us in Congress, Yet Henry
Pcehler, the man who would be as
much out of place on the floor of the
House of Representatives in Wash
ington as a fourteen-year-old-boy
who had never been outside the
shadow of his own roof-tree is ex
tolled by the Globe for no other quali
fication than that of his being a
Democrat.
Personally we have nothing to say
against Henry Pcehler. We believe
him to be an honorable gentleman,
a good man for his place, and a man
of influence in Sibley County, but
in Congress he would be a mere ci
pher, nominated by his party be
cause he was a German and had mo
ney to spend in the canvass. W
know what Strait has done and can
do for us we know that Henry Pceh
ler has not the first qualification that
Major Strait does not possess in a
greater degree. We know there can
be nothing gained by making the
exchange we do not know that
much may not be lost.
W cannot close this article with
out administering to the editor of
the Globe a portion of the dose
which he prepared for us: "When a
party is reduced to the necessity of
maligning and misrepresenting an
opponent in direct defiance of well
known and established facts, its con
dition is indeed desperate."Glencoe
Register. Russia andTurkeynot yet in Peace.
A dispatch from Constantinople,
correcting the statement of October
8th, says: Prince Labanoff informs
Savfet Pasha that the Russians
will retain Adrianople, not only un
til the treaty of Berlin is fulfilled,
but until a treaty is signed confirm
ing those parts of the San Stefano
treaty which are not effected by the
decisions of the Berlin congress.
This incident has caused some alarm
in diplomatic cirles, but the corres
pondent has reason to believe the ob
ject of the demand is merely to- has-
ten the Porte, which is lagging over
some deputation's. A dispatch from
Pera reports Prinje Labanoff told
Savfet Pasha that until the supple
mentary treaty is signed a state of
war exists.
LINDEN CORRESPONDENCE.
Editor Review:
With due regard to your host of cor
respondents, and with the hope you
will not frown upon me, I make my
debut, assuring you I am no bard.
Farmers are busy turning over their
stubbled fields, burning what they did
not harvest, preparatory to plowing,
husking the coin, and in a general way
preparing for the visits of the hoary
haired old gent Jack Frost, thinking
h will be severe, and earlyjfreeze up
everything.
Politicians are in the field. Linden
will acknowledge the services of our
present officers, by polling a large 'ma-
jority of votes in their favor on election
day.
Manderfeld is making herculean ef
forts to cany the county. Paulson,
I am told, is saddling his political war
hoise and intends to give his opponents
a hard run.
We want Maj. Strait in Washington
to keep an eye on the Southern war
claims, and 0. C. Brandt in St. Paul to
watch Liberty Hall.
ObituaryWe lament the sad fate of
our "portly looking gentleman," whose
hair had become giay in the seivice to
the public of this community. Our
heaits beat waimly, and he had our
sympathy, when seen trudging along
to some popular resort, or standing in
an obscure place, with his memoran
dum book and stub pencil, taking notes
of the doings and happenings, to be
scattered, bioadcast, through the col
umns of the widely circulating Review.
His last moments were painful to
witness. Amidst convulsive shudders,
he died of the effect of the "bulldoz
ing" he received from ye editor's quill
for writing balderdash. (Ibid.)
SLEEFYEYE, OCT. 10, 18T8.
ABOUT RESUMPTION.
Written for the Review.
Let it be borne in mind, as before
stated, resumption means that when
the holder ot a greenback wishes to
exchange it for com he can do so. He
is not obliged to make the exchange
but if he does he may receive .for it a
dolar in coin.
1. Now the obligation of the govern
ment to resume specie payment is one
thing and its ability is another. The
government may assume an obligation
beyond its abilitv to discharge. As.
the day of resumption nears is theie
any evidence that the government can
fulfill its promise? Certainly there is.
There is already, and has been tor some
time, more than enough coin in thfr
Treasury for resumption purposes and
still there is considerable time for the
accumulation of more. The question
of the nation's ability to resume is off
from debatable giound.
2. Now it is a noticeable fact that as
it becomes more and more certain that
resumption will take place the value
of the greenback increases and has
been but one-fourth of a cent on a dol
lar as good as gold, Or stated a little
differently, the nearer we come to re*
sumption the greater is the value of the
laborer's noneythe greenback: and
the nearer in value it becomes to the
rich man's moneygold and silver.
Actual resumption will give one man's
money the same purchasing power as
another mans. In all this there is
nothing that indicates at all that the
day of resumption is ''the day of doom'
for the nation.
3. There are those who think that
the effort to resume specie payments
contracts the currency, of which there
is not now a sufficiency, and so is one
cause of the hard times. But as the
act of resumption does not mean con
traction, so neither in providing for re
sumption is there contraction or the
effect of making provision for resump
tion. On the other hand the revival of
business and prosperity has attended
the process of resumption. The causes
of the hard times and the numerous
failures of the past few months belong
to the inflation and panic period which
andedates the resumption period .There
is now i* circulation more than three
times the amount of currency that
there was prior to the war. In 1870
business was moving at full tide, but
there was less currency by over eighty
one million dollars than in 1874 the
year, of the panic. There is a great
contrast between 1870 and 1878 in trade
and business when the contrast in cur
rency in circulation is not near so
marked. All this shows that the in
sufficiancy of currency but to the other
causes. The remedy is not then in in
flation but in something else. There
is more paper in circulation than the
demand of trade calls for hence the
banks have been obliged to reduce the
volume of their notes. It does not fol
low that because men can't get hold of
money that there is none to get hold
of. Resumption then has nothing to
dfo with the hard times. Resumption
will increase the volume of cunency
it will increase the, value of the green^
back and naturally'cause better times*
