Election next Tuesday.
Vote for Strait, the friend of the
A vote for Henry Pcehler next
Tuesday is a vote for fiat money and
confusion of our national credit.
The Greenback Senatorial conven
tion for this district was held at
Redwood Falls on the 22d inst. and
nominated Ener Birutn, of Yellow
Medecine county, in oppposition to
Hon. K. H. Helling, the Republi
can candidate. Mr. Birum, like Mr.
Helling, is a Norwegian and lives on
a homestead near Canby. The fol
lowing from the Redwood Gazette:
Mr. Birum was formerly, and for
many years, a resident of Redwood
Falls and always regarded as a good
citizen. His nomination for the
Senatorship is doubtless a surprise to
many. We judge that in the for
lorn hope connected with the nomi
nation, may be found the reason for
some of the aspiring politicians of
the party stepping aside. We re
gard Mr. Birum as victimized in the
house of his friends and we regret it.
A "Scandinavian" makes an earn
est appeal in the St. Peter Tribune
to his countrymen to stand by the
Republican nominee for congress.
"The selection of a man to repre
sent us in congress is something
more serious than the choice of a
town supervisor, and I am afraid all
do not consider its importance at
First in importance, to my mind,
is the payment of the rebel war
claims. W know that our enemies
mean to have them paid, and we
know that Hon. Strait will never
vote for them, but we are afraid Mr.
Poehler will vote as his party orders
him, no matter what his intentions
may now be. I shall not trust him.
Second. There is a great deal
said about Hon. Strait not giving
Scandinavians offices enough. I
have not kept a strict account of
the number apportioned to my coun
trymen, but I think we have had so
near our share that we cannot well
My countrymen! has it come to
pass that office is all we are to think
of? that our craving must be satis
fied to the sacrifice of everything
else? that office comes first and our
adopted country last? I am ashamed
to think that such a spirit is mani
fested while on every hand the ene
my is pressing us.
Third. You say Hon. Strait has
held his office long enough. We
know that he was nominated almost
without opposition. We joined in
his selection as our leader, and shall
we now quarrel about that? It is too
late to turn back. But if we
should turn back could we do better*
If we have no better reason to give
than that he has been in long enough
we are foolish to mention it. In our
native country we know officers are
selected solely on account of their
qualifications, and we should be sur
prised to see them turned out as soon
as they had learned to do their du
ties well. It is frivolous to give such
a reason. Hon. Strait can with ex
perience do better for us than anew
man. Whatever others do let us not
set the example of rushing wildely,
madly, insanely around in a scram
ble for office. We are not ignored
look about you and see if we ought
to complainbut if we do complain
what can Mr. Poehler do for us? Ab
solutely nothing. What will become
of this great Republic if everybody
runs wildly in search of office? Let
us set a better example."
all means Retain KaJ. Strait.
To the Editor of the Pioneer Press:
If we are to have a new member
of congress from the Third district,
in the person of Gen. Washburn,
and in the place of Dr. Stewart, let
us by all means retain Strait to re
present the Second district. We
who live up here in the northern part
of the State want a good, reliable
man in Washington, who is famili
ar with the business of the different
departments, and particularly with
the pension bureau. One who has
learned by experience how to attend
promptly to his constituents, and
knows exactly what is necessary to
be done to procure the payment of a
pension for an old soldier, and takes
pleasure in doing it.
It would take anew and inexperi
enced man at least one session to
become acquainted with the heads of
the different bureaus, and of the
manner of doing business in the de
partments, to say nothing of his to
tal ignorance of his immediate du
ties as a member of congress. To
such a man as that it would be very
unsatisfactory to write with the
hope of getting any matter properly
attended to. Dunnell seems totally
absorbed in the interests of his im
mediate constituents of the First
district. Windom and McMillan
would both think it beneath their
senatorial dignity to hammer away,
as is necessary, at a pension or sett
ler's claim before the pension or land
office, and Stewart being about to
step down and out, our only reliance
is in Strait. COUNTRYMAN.
An Explanation Wanted.
Henry Pcehler, democratic candi
date for congress in this district, was
nominated upon a hard-money plat
form, and, besides being a bank
cashier, was generally understood to
be hard-money man first, last, and
all the time. Of late he has been
making advances to the so-called
party, and the convention
eld in Redwood county on the 12th
inst. unanimously adopted the fol
lowing preamble and resolution:
WHEREAS, The national green
back party has no candidate for re
presentative to congress in the sec
ond congressional district and
WHEREAS, The Hon. Henry Pceh
ler,in his letter to Mr. Cook, has ful
ly endorsed the principles that the
greenback party adyocate there
Resolved, That we endorse the
Hon. Henry Poehler and reccom
mend him to the support of the
greenback party of Redwood Co.
It is certainly due the democratic
hard-money men of the district that
Mr. Poehler clearly and unmistakab-
ly defines his position upon this im
portant issue at the earliest practic
able moment, and nothing less than
this will satisfy them. Let us hear
from him at once.[Hastings Ga
MAJOR H. B. STRAIT.
Minnesota never had a more ac
tive or efficient member of con
gress in all measures of practical u
tility to his constituents than Major
Strait. He is not a talker but he is
a busy and diligent worker and he
not only watches every chance to
serve his constituents on the floor of
the committees, and
in the departments, but he is so
persevringjand vigilant that he rare
ly undertakes anything which he
does not press to a successful con
summation. He has made himself
so popular with the members of both
parties that he is always sure of the
friendly co-operation of a multidute
of friends in pushing through meas
ures for the benefit of his constitu
ents and of the State at large. The
series ol valuable measures which he
introduced and pressed to final pas
sage for the benefit of the frontier
settlers of the State shows how
watchful he is of their interests and
how efficiently he serves them. The
important amendments he has se
cured to the homestead laws and to
the timber culture act, which in its
present liberal shape was introduced
by himthe bill for grasshopper re
lief and a number of others all illu
strate the vigilence and earnestness
with which ne looks after the inte
rests of his constituents, and entitles
him to the designation by which he
is known throughout the district as
"the Frontier Settlers' Friend." He
is entitled, too, to the special favor
of the Irish voters of his district for
the manly way in which he stood up
for Gen. Shields at the last session
of congress. When that distinguish
ed patriot and warior, covered" with
the scars of his many battles for his
country, but now poor, was a candi
date for an office in congress, whose
salary would have lifted him above
want, Major Strait was one of those
who rallied to the support of the gal
lant old general, and when he was
defeated by Democratic votes for
that position, Major Strait voted to
give him a liberal pension for life.
Gen. Shields was once a resident of
Major Strait's district, and there
are hundreds of Irishmen in Rice and
other counties who will remember
the gray-hairecl veteran, once Unit
ed States senator from this State,
and they will gratefully remember
the efforts of Major Strait to secure
for him from Congress a grateful re
cognition of his patriotic services.
Major Strait's experience and long
acquaintance in Washington rend
ers him ten times more able to serve
his constituents than any new man,
like Mr. Pcehler would be, however
good his intentions. It would take
several years of service in congress
to qualify Mr. Pcehler for the depart
mental, legislative and committee
work in which Major Strait has ac
quired large experience or to make
the wide acquaintance with con
gressmen and department officers
which has served so useful a purpose
to Major Strait in enabling him to
meet the wants and wishes of his
constituents. Major Strait should
be elected by a large majority.Pio
The shameful and bigoted article*
belittling Hon. Henry Pcehler be
cause he is a German, concocted by
the narrow minded editor of the
Marshall Messenger and reproduced
in the New Ulm Herald, of October
25th, having been brought to the
notice of Maj. H.B.Strait he prompt
ly telegraphed Jos. Bobleter the fol
lowing, which explains itself:
SHAKOPEE, Oct. 26th, 1878.
New Ulm, Minn.J
You are authorized to say to all',
persons irrespective of nationality
that, that portion of the newspaper
article published in the New Ulm
Herald which charges Hon. Henry
Pcehler with being a beer guzzling
German of the Turner stripe, &c.,
does not, so far as it reflects discred
it upon Mr. Pcehler and my German,
friends, meet with my approval in,
any shape, form or manner. gifeS
