Ooivmuis, Oct. 9. — The rush of business at
the different state headquarters this week is
simply tremendous. Both the Democratic and
Republican polls of tlie state are ■ complete, and
knowing tbe weak places in thtir lines. the
managers are moving everything except the fixed
stars to prevent losses in some localities
and to increase the prospective i
gains in others. The Republican!, had a poll
■which gave them some confidence, but it was
taken some time ago, and they are no longer
talking about 80,000 majority or any majority at
ill since the tremendous tide of popular feeling
las set in within the past two weeks. The
Democrats have a much more accurate
poll, which on a conservative estimate
will give them the state bya little more than last
fear's ma'ority, and they do not propose to have
the grip wrested from them bythe money power,
Imported voters, repeaters or any other fraudu
One thing is certain, tho managers at head
quarters on both sides know to a certainty what j
is needed here and there, and in arranging if r
the final charge there is a hustling |
time of it. It will be the greatest j
political contest ever fought out on
Ohio soil. With the elements enlisted to do ser
vice there will be bad blood, passions will be
aroused and blood may be spilled. Tho state is
disgraced already, and many are living in perfect
dread of the coming of next Tuesday. The
Democrats are onto all the schemes" of
the Republicans. Letters come pouring
into the Democratic state headquarters
laily telling of the agencies of the
corruptionists and threatening to mob Dudley if
he shows himself in their counties. Some of
them say: "Hang him "Kill him "Let I
him come here ; we arc laying for him 1"
The Democrats in charge of the local organi
sations never were more vigilant and active.
They do not propose to have the Indiana game
played here. They say they are ready to
repel all frauds and ballot box stuffersand to see |
that the will of the people is not defeated. The
tricks of 1880 in other states are to bejdefeated in

There is one thing that neither the Democratic
nor the ElepnbUcan poll of the state reports cor
rectly and that is the prohibition vote. The third
parly never had a complete organization before
or any considerable amount of money. This
year they have both. Last year the wonderful
organization for the secon l amendment extended
Into evrey ward, school district and town
ship. The prohibitionists have captured
the entire organisation of that
movement for this year and they feel confident !
that they will poll from 88, 000 to 40,000 votes,
and the common rule of estimates this year is
that the Democratic majority win be in propor
tion to this vote. If they east .0,000 votes, the
Democratic majority will not be less than 40,
The Greenback-Labor party, which has been
casting abont 3,000 votes, has done nothing in

Nsw Tone, Oct. 9.— Thai tha Kepublican man-

the excessive alarm they show over what they

to turn the political scale in Ohio and drive out

Washington, Oct. 9. — Mr. Blame is engaged
in trying to impress workingmen with the fact
that he and his party love the toilers, with
their mouths, about election time, bnt not in
dollars and cents when It comes to paying labor
its hard earnings. Ou lot 1, block 95, Wash
ington City, stands the finest mansion at
the capital. It was built and is owned
by James G. Blame, the Republican candidate
for president. The lot is assessed at $20,000 and
the building at $50,000. It is renting for $1,300
a year. Two years ago, when it was being built,
Mr. Blame came to the building and ordered Mr.
Davidson, the contractor, since dead, to make
changes in the original plans. This Mr. David
son declined to do nnless compensated. Mr.
"Certainly, whenever lor Mrs. Blame come
here and order any changes in the plans, make
them and keep an account of the expense and I
will pay tor it." ;
This statement was made in the presence of
several witnesses. When the building was fin
ished, the contractors and sub-contractors pre
sented a bill for extras of $9,000 in the itemized
account. Mechanics for extra work were
paid at the rate of 50 cents an hour and common •
laborers at the rate of SOc an hour. In his letter
to the. attor for the contractors, in which he
objected to paying the bill, Mr. Blame used this

Independent Republicans in New York.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.l
Washington, Oct. 9. — Secretary Post, of the
Democratic congressional committee, said to-day
that on the train coming here from New York
he made the acquaintance of a prominent New
York Republican from the Syracuse district, who
was a delegate to the Chicago convention, who
took from his pocket a private slip, upon which
it was stated that "the undersigned, a Re
publican, pledged himself to vote
for and support Grover Cleveland
for the presidency." The slips, he said, were
prepared by the Republicans who were organized
to support Cleveland, and were need as pledges
by Republicans who wished to bind themselves
to vote for Cleveland. He said that in bis elec
tion precinct, which always gives a Republican
majority of over eighty, he bad gotten forty-two
of those slips signed by leading Republicans and
sent them to the Independent Republican head
quarters in New York, and he knew of sixteen
more men who had not signed the pledge, but
who would vote for Cleveland. He told Mr. Post
that Independent Republicans hud thousands of
these slips circulated throughout the state
and were making the poll in that
way. Ten days ago, he said, when be sent in his
last batches, the secretary of the committee
wrote him a letter, saying that up to this time
they had received 03,215 pledges of the kind
from all points of tbe state
and they wero still coming in.
He said also that it was not the
followers of Curtis who were most bitterly op-
posed to Blame, but the stalwarts who two years
ago had been told that Cleveland was a good
enough man to beat Foley, and who now thought
him a good enongh man to beat Blame.
Lontiovvii.i.k, Ohio, Oct. 9. Mr. Blame left
Canton this morning at 9 o'clock by special tram
on the Pittsburg, Fort Wayne ._ Chicago for
Torrester, Crestline and Columbus. At ville,
a small station where the train made the first
stop, several hundred people were collected.
Mr. Blame spoke- a few words in advocacy of the
re-election of Mr. Mcliiuley. The i" stop
Here Mr. Blame left Iha train and went np to
a stand on the- public square where about 5,000
people had assembled. He was introduced by
Mr. Wm. M. Orr, one of his classmates at Wash
ington and Jefferson colleges, and was warmly
received. Ho spjke briefly congratulating the
Republicans of Ohio on their zeal.
Hi- endeavored to Imprest on them the tran
scendent importance of the tariff as an issue in
tin- campaign, an I urging the re-eloction of Mr.
McKinley. During the speaking a body of stu
dents from the Wo later university marched up
to the stand and cheered for Blame aad Logan.
At the depot just a- Mr. Blame was about to get
on the train general attention was attracted by
the affectionate demonstration of an elderly gen
tleman who was actually embracing Mr.
Blame. This proved to be Rev. Dr.
Black, an old college chum of Mr. Blame's.
His wife accompanied him and seemed almost as
much pleased as her husband to see Mr. Blame.
CoLraats, 0., Oct- 9. There were a few peo
ple at the depot at Mansfield, scut there several
thousand assembled In the square in the heart
of the town, to which Mr. Blame was escorted
in the usual manner. Mr. Hedges, tbe Republi
can candidate for congress, having introduced
him as the next president of the United Mutes,
Mr. Blame said:
I object to my friend introducing me
in that way. Wo will talk about that after
Tuesday next. But I see- good auguries for
Tuesday in the fart that the people of Ohio seem
to be thoroughly aroused. In all my political
experience 1 have never seen a people ap
parently more thoroughly awake to their duty
lhan the people of Ohio seem to beet this time.
Your duty in this campaign is exceptionally im
portant. You have both your own immediate
duty and a vicarious duty. Yon are to vote on
Tuesday next not only for yourselves but fi.r tbe
whole United States. You are to set the mark
for the Republican high tide. I confess I Lavo
great confidence in the vote of Ohio, for since
the election of Salmon P. Chase as governor of
your slate In 1835, I have never known a year
when Ohio was aroused that she did not give a
Republican majority. Yon have never had be
fore you a more distinct issue than you have
this year. There has never beea a
more clean cut division between the
parlies at the beginning of a politi
cal campaign. A great many hemes are in the
people's minds, but as C. contest grows serious
they begin to eliminate the incidental points aad
finally, as th" pari converge and come face to
face, thero is ehrsys or.c great overshadow
issue that controls the multitude of voters. I
assume that the issue of the present year is the
protective tariff, and I am sure there is not a
state in the Cnion that h.s profited mom nnder
the protective system, or that is more deeply in
terested in its maintenance than Ohio. That be
ing the case and with the farther
condition that Ohio ranks as high
in intelligence as auy state in the l'nion.
It cannot be doubted lhat yon will see your way
clear to protect and maintain your own Interests.
Ido not slop to srgne other questions. Ido not

you: attention in your congressional districts, i.'.i :.

At Crestline there was a large crowd around I
the depot snd Mr. Blame spoke briefly from a I
platform built out from the second story of the
bnilding. He spoke of the great importance of
the state election in October, because ot its
bearing upon the national election and cpon

on its great future. | Applause.
Mr. Blame was followed to the depot by a
great crowd, who cheered him repeatedly as they
ran along the streets and at the departure of the
Delaware was reached Jest before dark, and
considering the size of the place the reception
here was phenomenal. The streets were
crowded, and the enthusiasm • of
the people was as remarkable as
their numbers. Mr. Blame was introduced by
Judge Jones, and when the storm of cheering
and shouting with which he was received had
subsided, he returned thanks for the kind re
ception given him, and said:
I have never seer, a population in motion as
the population of Ohio seems to-day. Prom that
fact I anticipate a great Republican vote on
Tuesday next. I want Ohio to feel and to know
that the vote of Tuesday next is an important
vote, and that the •responj-tbOlm rests
upon the Republicans of this state.
The Republican party is fortunate in having
the support of a vast majority of the young men
of the country. As I have said before there is
not an instance in the political history of this
nation of any party being beaten that had, in a
large degree, the sympathy and support of the
young men. I see before me a large number of
young men who are collegians, and who add to
the power of youth the power of education and
culture. To them and to their fellows we look
us a great source or strength in the pending can
At this' point, Hon. C. B. Farwell, of
Chicago, joined the party. No other stop was
made' until the train reached Columbus. In view
of the great demonstration he-re last week the
understanding was that there should be none on
this occasion, but there was quite a large crowd
in the depot awaiting the arrival of the train,
who pressed around Mr. Blame and cheered him
as he passed out. He entered a carriage and
tried to drive quietly to the house of his cousin,
Mr. Miller, but a body of young Republicans
bearing torches insisted on escorting him in the
usual noisy manner. Mr. Blame will spend the
night .at his cousin's house, and will go to
morrow through the Scioto valley to Lancaster.

The Democratic Opportunity to Carry
| Special Correspondenco of the Globe.l
Rock Rapids, lowa, Oct. B. Before 1884, the
very mention of a possibility of lowa being car
ried by the Democrats was hooted at. But time,
the wonder-worker, brings about many changes,
and time has been at work in Republican lowa.
In 1882 the vote of the state stood: Republican,
133,328; Democrats, 73,344; Greenbacker, 28,
--112: scattering, 822. In 1883 the vote stood:
Republican, 164,18.; Democratic, 139,101;
Greenbacker, 23,032; scattering, .4.
It will be seen by a comparison of the vote of
'82 and 'S3 that the Republicans gained 31,754
votes; the Democrats, G5.757, while the Green
backers lost 5,020 votes, leaving the net Demo
cratic gain over the Republicans. 34,003 votes.
The increase carried into 1384 would give the
Democrats alone over the united Republican
■ad Prohibition forces, a majority of 8,022.
But the Republicans are split. There is a
Blame vote, which will go directly to the Demo
crats sad the Proa tats of the extreme
school will support St. John by a fair vote.
These reflections will cost our Republican friend
at least 15,000 in the stale. But the Democrats
of lowa have other sources of gain besides the
dissensions in the ranks of their enemies. The
fusion con»umuted at Davenport gives to the
Democrats 23,000 votes. our Republican friends
in blowing to keep up courage say, "'the vote of
'63 was only on local issues, and the Democrat
accessions of last year will disappear
in November. But they are mistaken. Demo
cratic rallies all over the state are attended by
immense crowds of people, all in earnest In their
opposition to Republicanism. The Germans al

speeches this evening in Nicolin's hall, (the
finest bail outside of some of the larger cities in
the state.) Mr. Donnelly arrived on the sp. m.

accompanied by Jndge Whitlock. of Belle Piaine.

met at the train by the Shakopee band, engaged

by Heury >":__ He, the most enthusiastic Donnelly
man in the county. Two weeks ago he wss sup
porting Strait. After Mr. Donnelly sad his es
corts were seated in the carriage, the baad at the
head ot the column, marched throagh the
principal streets to the hotel. Several of the
basiaess hoases had flags flying aad a number
were stretched across the streeU. At 7 o'clock
the band began to play in the ball aad the crowd
to gather; andat 7:30 o'clock every seat wss
filled acd more chairs were brocght in: they
were soon filled and many were compelled to
"tand. It was the largest meeting over held in
Jordan. _* .'tr ' .
On the arrival of Mr. Donnelly In the hall three
cheers were given him and then tho band played
another piece. Mr. Donnelly was introduced by
Hon. Mr. Cullender, and when ho stepped to tno
front loud applause greeted him. Mr. Donnelly
spoke for over two hours and a half, his- speech
being repeatedly applauded. Mr. Donnelly re
viewed the paragraph that appeared in the
Pioneer Frets this morning and exploded tho
charges made by Maj. .Strait therein to the satis
faction of the audience, who expressed their sat
isfaction by loud and continued applause. The
business men of Jordan whom I talked with say
that Mr. Donnelly will carry this (Scott) county,
Ma.i. Strait s own homo, by from 600 to 1,000
majority. Tho Kepublican Germans arc leaving
their party en masse.
. Nick Eckcrt, a ' business man of this city, a !
German, met at the Cleveland and Hendricks
clnb room last night with the members of the
club, and after the meeting was calied to order, j
hesaid: "I have voted the -Republican ticket,
never even scratching it, for the' last twenty
three years, but I am this fall going to vote for
Cleveland and Hendricks and Donnelly and
said be: "That is - from the bottom
of my heart."
The good work is going on all over the dis
trict in the same way. Major Strait's newspaper
supplements that he is tending out all over tho I
district, are making vote- for Mr. Donnelly in all
directions. Mr. Donnelly replied to it ami gave
the history of the Biil King letter contained in
it, and showed up Dill as the champion corrup
tion..t,liar and perjurer* of the United States.and
asked whehtcr his (Donnclly'sjgood name was to
be taken away from him upon the bare, unsup
ported assertions of a man who was hiding in the
depths of Canado,us a fugitive from jus lice,
he ought to have been iv his seat in congress,
representing theliepiib'.iear.s of his district. Mr.
Donnelly said: "I had charitably sup
oscd, when the . little . creatures who
are following I in my track were
pouring out a deluge of lies and slanders against
me, that they were doing it upon their own in
spiration; that thtir zeal outran their discretion,
but I see that Major Strait was the real fountain
and source of all this abuse, and that he has
forced bis hirelings to do this dirty work, just as
he constrains his, postmasters to work for him
10 a degree that no other congressman would
attempt. I find that Strait feels that they are
not pouring forth filth enough and he drops all
disguise and proceeds as the Pioneer Press of to
day shows to lie about me in his own proper per
son. This shows bow terribly the poor wretch
is alarmed and exercised at - the course of the
canvass. He proceeds to quote . from the as
sault made upon mc sixteen years ago by Elihu
Washburn. Does not Strait know that I asked
for a committee of investigation to enquire into
the truth of these charges; that the house of
representatives appointed snch a committee :that
the committee called on Washburn to prove his
charges; that Washburn employed detectives,
and for three months they scoured the country
from Washington and Philadelphia to Minnesota
to find something to sustain Washburn's brutal
assaults? They could find nothing and Washburn
did not attempt to sustain his charges.
I then, at my own expense, called witnesses and
disproved them. And now Strait is base enough
to revamp Washburn's old slanders when he well
knows that Washburn was compelled to abandon
The dog goes back to his vomit, but who ever
heard of a dog that went back to another dog's
vomit. And then he 'proceeds out of his own
mouth to charge that when the committee of in
vestigation were at work to ascertain who wrote
the letter offering Springer $5,000 to defeat me
and keep Washburn in his seat, that an attempt -
was made by me to bribe that committee. Good
heavens ! Where are these lies to end? No such
attempt was ever made, or ever charged by any
one. Yon will search tbe varions reports of the
committee in vain for snch an insinuation. I
defy Strait to prodnce even a newspaper para
graph to sustain his statement. It is a lie com
plete and absolute. And the idea that I, who
had scarcely money enongh to pay my Washing
ton hotel bill, would attempt to buy np a com
mittee of thirteen members of congress !
Now this out-swash of defamation has got to
end or I propose to "carry the war into Africa."
I have treated Major Strait like a gentle
man. I have not said one
word against his private record or

ne is posing before the district as the friend of
the poor soldier, and he points to the numerous
pension bills he has passed through congress es
proof of the fact. He has done a land office bus
iness in pensions. lie has grown rich out of
pensions, How does be work it? I state now
facts that are notorious in this county:
A poor soldier bas a pension claim. Heap
plies to the pension bureau and bis claim is re
jected for some informality or for the lack of
some item of proof. He goes to Strait to have
him secure him a pension by a special act of
congress. Strait tells him to go to Capt. Sen
cerbox. Capt. Sencerbox enters into a written
contract with the soldier that he is to give him
one-half of all that is collected. Then, and not
till then. Strait tabes hold of the case. What
does S'-ncerbox do': He is no lawyer; but he
prepares the papers: ten or twenty dollars would
be a reasonable compensation for such services;
or perhaps Strait gets the papers or copies of
them from the pension ofiice and Sencerbox does
nothing. Strait introduces the bill, docs all the
work, carries it ' through tbe committee and the
house arid senate. A draft is sent to Strait*
bank at Shakopee for the back pay. The old
soldier is taken Into the back room of Strait*
bank and there he is compelled to give one-half
of all his claim, be it $300, $000 or $1,000, to
Sencerbox. Sencerbox wonld, of course, swear
that the virtuous Strait never received a cent of
this money; but if he did not, what did Sencer
box do to earn it? And why should Strait refer
the applicant to Sencerbox and then work so
hard to put money into Sencerbox'* pocket? It
is ton thin. Tbe soldier goes away swearing at
the fraud practiced upon him, and Strait points !
to the act for the relief of the old soldier as proof I
of bis patriotism and industry. [Loner continued

Neighbor Donnelly is rarely seen among
us these days, as most of his time is spent in
getting acquainted with bis i constituents in
other parts of his district and leartiinc their
minds. There is no occasion for him to
work in this vicinity, where he is so well
and favorably known as to command almost
the entire vote of tbe county. Donnelly
will bave praetic .Ily the entire vote of the
farmers, because he is one of them; their
misfortunes and suflerinz. at the hands of -
Millers- associations and corporations be has
shared; and he has, by his aggressive public
career, demonstrated, not only that he is
willing to carry the fight into the camp of the
enemy, but that with sucb a champion their
cries win be heard and their rights redressed.
Mr. Donnelly will receive the support of the
business public, because all busiuess inter
ests are expressed in sympathy with the de
pression of the agricuitural classes, caused
by tlte grasping selfishness of tbe
railroads and other corporations, be
cause tbe business men feel with
tbe farmers, tbat we of the west cannot
longer endure the burdens of the present
tariff which is centralizing wealth so rapidly
in the hands of corporations who in turn
form monopolies to further rob and plun
der the western consumer. We want a man
of ability and influence in congress. One
who is not a passive voter but an active j
worker: a man wbom public plunderers fear
and respect; a man wbose opinion will be
heard and respected in the body of which be
is a member, and Mr. Donnelly, by bis pub
lic record while in congress, and by his liter
ary efforts in the quiet of bis own borne
bas shown that be is tbe man needed to lead
in the many much needed reforms, and tbe
fact tbat the principal effort, now directed in
tbe defeat of Mr. Donnelly, is directed .by
railroad and other corporations, shows con
clusively tbat these interests fear him, and
as this fact becomes known it will swell bis
majority in this district beyond tie expec
tations of tbe most sanguine.

He Turns Up in New York in Good
Health, Mentally and Physically.
|Special Telegram to the Globe.l
New York, Oct. 9. The Tribune says this
morning the office ot the St. James hotel was
filled with the usual nnmber ot after dinner
loungers yesterday, when a tall, fine looking
man, whose npright, manly carriage bespoke
cither the actor or the soldier, strode
in throngh the open doors, and after
shaking hands with nearly every
one who crossed his patb, finally sauntered into
the barber shop. It was McCullongh, the trage
dian. The whisper which ran rapidly around
the hotel Informed the few to whom. the face and
figure were nnfamlliar.
It mnst be confessed that McCullongh has
been ; fortunate in his almost miraculous
recovery within three or four days, or
else the papers of the wild wesl
exaggerated, not to say told deliberate untruths,
after a fashion more vicious tban unfamiliar.
To a reporter the actor appeared to be as robust,
healthy and strong as when he had just returned
from his European holiday. Mentally
there seemed to be absolutely no
trace of any abnormal condition.
lie talked cheerfully, composedly and with bis
usual genial warmth. lie made no reference to
the cruel stories published abont him, but
chatted about the journey borne and his pleasure
at the prospect of a little rest and leisure among
his congenial friends. McCnllongh is staying
with friends in tbis city and merely looked into
the hotel in tbc course of an evening stroll.
Wm. M. Conner, who traveled with him from
Columbns, 0., said: "We reached here abont
7:30 o'ciock, having traveled all last night and
to-day. I suppose McCullongh is a little wearied
with the jonrney. McColloagh is in compare
ively excellent health both mentally
and physically. As I inspected, the
reports were grossly exaggerated and
the desire of Chicago reporters
for a sensation ran away with their judgment.
It is possible Mc Cuiloagh will not act again nn
til late in the season, but this is the rest he
ought to have taken long ago.'*
John McCullooga is stiil stopping at the St.
James hotel and he looks mnch better to-day.
His fntnre movements are still undecided.
Supreme Court Cases at Washington.
WasniNGTO?., Oct, 9. — The supreme court
will meet Monday next for tbe October term.
Six justices are already in the city, and all
are expected to take seats when the court re
assembles. Number of cases on docket,
1,023, or fifty-four less than at the corres
ponding time last year. The court holds
under advisement ten cases which were ar
gued or submitted at tbe last term, but there
is only one of them which has a general in
terest; that is tbe so-called "bead money
case" of tbe Liverpool, Xew York & Phila
delphia Steamship company against tbe com
missioners of emigration. A number of
cases have been specially assigned
for - the second day for tbe
coming term, and the indications
are Uut most of tbem will be argued.
Among the most important are:
- First Tbe Alabama claims. Tbe cases of
tbe Columbia and Great Western Insurance
companies against tbe United States; brought
up by appeal from the court of claims.
— Patent interference case of the
commissioner of patents against the United
States ez re Hoe, which involves the ques
tion of right of appeal in patent cases from
the decision of tbe commissioner of patents
to tbe secretary of tbe interior.
Third — The longevity pay case against
Lieut. Morton ; brought up by appeal from
the court of claims. The argument
and decision in the case last named will
have more than usual interest .in military
circles, since the principle involved effects,
it Is said, the pay of nearly a thousand
army officers. The question in .controversy
is whether the period of military training at
the West Point military academy is to be re-
garded as service in the army in computing
an officer's longevity pay. Chief Justice
Drake in delivering the opinion of the court
below in favor of the claimant, reviewed the
laws and regulations relating to the military
academy, and said: • V "7
"In view of these plain and express pro-
visions, we arc at a loss to understand why
a cadet at the military academy is
not in service In the army. That he is pur-
suing there studies and passing through dis
cipline, which are to flt him for higher duty
and perhaps greater achievements in mili
tary life, does not, in our opinion, at all
affect or even touch the status given him, in
unmistakable words, by the laws under which
both the academy aud army exist. No pri
vate soldier in the army is more in service
than a cadet at West Point."
If the decision of the court of claims is
sustained, it will add four years to the period
of service of West Point graduates in the
computation of their longevity pay.
