It is putting it mildly to say that Mr. "Nelson is a good deal annoyed at the Globe's disclosures about the wheat ring. Earlier in the campaign his friends damned his oratory with faint praise by declaring that he was no such talker as '.'Gen." George A. Sheridan. Since then he has made one speech many times, and constant repetition ,has made his memory master of its eveiy sentence. Up to a week ago he could with complete accuracy have been defined as a man who had some thing to say and knew how to say it. He always had something io say, for example, about the horrors of wildcat banking in the days before ths war, and a few words of eulogy on the Sher man silver law. lie has always de fended himself against the charge of inconsistency on the tariff question by pointedly alluding to the views of An drew Jackson, who was president of the United States some sixty years ago, and from whose position on this prob lem he claims that the Democracy of 1892 has widely departed. Besides all this, he has at each appearance painted a glowing picture of the merits of pro tectionism, such as might be expected from one who voted for the Mills bill, and has wound up with a brief discus sion of state issues. When he first took the stump he ad mitted that there were two local ques tions important enough for him to ex press an opinion on. One was whether he himself was a corporation lawyer. His argument here consisted of a grace ful assertion that the "Globe was a liar." Lately he has abandoned this in teresting portion of Ins address. The other was the nationality question. This lie still continues to treat in varying fashion. If his audience is largely com posed of Americans, he apologizes for his foreign birth by saying that he has lived, in this country many years, ln the midst of his own race, he takes an other tack and rallies the Norwegians to his standard by appeals to their com mon blood. When he has reached this point he has covered the entire ground, and has always retired from the plat form with a smile curling about his upper lip as though conscious of a work well done. But now fancy his condition of mind. The oft-recited speech, every turn or which he has so well by heart, will no longer do. The people want to know where he stands ou another matter. Does he believe that the farmers have been robbed by a conspiracy of the ele vator companies and the railroads, or does he think that the complaints are without justification? He must now either openly defend his employers, the corporations, or undertake to explain how these outrageous abuses have come into existence under Republican ad ministrations. No wonder Mr. Nelson is annoyed by the Globe's disclosures about the wheat ring. He has got to learn a new speech. The wheat steal is run by the men who are running Kepublican politics in Minnesota. A part of the booty goes to make up the Kepublican campaign fund. The Democracy has only the plain people to appeal to for funds to meet legitimate campaign expenses. This is their battle— the battle of the plain people against the plutocracy which robs and oppresses them. Each honest man owes it to his manhood to aid in redeeming Minnesota from the grasp of greedy coi ruptionists. Will you help? «a»i HOW CHOLERA CAN* BE CAUGHT. Every newspaper in the country has been industriously at work for some weeks instructing its subscribers how not to catch the cholera. On the prin ciple that every question has two sides and each side deserves a hearing, a noted New Fork physician has compiled a simple prescription for catching the cholera. It is as follows: (1) Debilitate yourself. (2) Spoil your digestion. (3) Find the liv.c germ and swallow it. There are some people who would really like to take a whirl with the chol era, just to see how it feels. They are the same people who every now and then yield to an inclination to learn what a buzz-saw in operation feels like. They like to experience things— to crowd a little excitement into life. And. then there are people who, willingly or unwillingly, are fated to catch ' everything that is catchable.- They begin with the whooping "cough and keep it up through the whole gamut— measles, chicken pox, smallpox, diph theria, pneumonia, bronchitis, tpnsilitis, peritonitis and old age, to .which they finally succumb. They know. they are bound to have the cholera— they knew it from the time the first case was re ported .in Hamburg. / Therefore they would, of course, be glad to have it at once, and go on to the next thing. To all these persons" the above prescription is cheerfully recommended. If it fails to work on the first application, double the dose and repeat. You can net the cholera if you try hard enough, and provided you don't meanwhile die of cholera fright. ':///.'/'' . '__'_ THEIK POLITICAL SIGNIFI ' CANCEL' y The Republican parly is making a sorry spectacle of Itself, as ; it tries to argue that the wheat ring disclosures have no political significance. If this is true, why is the-Republican press up in arms, endeavoring to prove that no such abuses exist, and why has the Republican state central committee, through Mr. Pillsbury as its spokes man, offered to wager $10,000. that the Globe cannot establish its charges? Of course these disclosures have the profoundest political significance, and no one appreciates this fact more fully than the leaders of the enemy.' - ' '.'., i'/ If it is true that the farmers have been systematically robbed for years by a conspiracy of the elevator com panies and railroads, the party which has been entrusted by the people with the execution of the laws is responsible for this condition of affairs. Nor is it any answer to say that some of the accused are Democrats. On- the shoulders of Republican legislatures and Republican executives has rested the duty of protecting our agricultural interests from the assaults of the ais honest, no matter what their political faith. Ii they have failed in this, theirs is the shame and theirs the blame. The only way for the . Republican party to meet this issue is to prove that the farmers' complaints have no founda tion in fact. The Republican party must throw off its mask and come out boldly and openly as the champion and defender of the corporations. The wheat ring disclosures have stripped the enemy of its disguise. Let the people choose between the ally of elevator companies and railroads and the party led by him who is "no man's man and wears no man's collar." PORTENTS OP VICTORY. The whole heavens ate ablaze with the omens of victory in state and nation. Never before has a Democratic cam paign in Minnesota been conducted with such thoroughness and vigor. Hun dreds of visitors throne the party's headquarters every day, bringing good tidings from every quarter of the com monwealth. The speakers who have been preaching the Democracy's doc triues on the stump have been every where welcomed by enthusiastic and interested audiences. The demand for literature bearing on the issues of the hour is unprecedented. Every indica tion points to a political revolution in Minnesota. Nor is the news from our sister states less encouraging. Altgeld in Illinois, Boies in lowa, Peck in Wisconsin. Russell iv Massachusetts, Mor- BIS in Connecticut, are leading val iantly the party's columns. In New York, Senator Hill has come out in brave, devoted words, pledg ing his own- personal support to the Democracy's ticket and rousiug his fel low citizens to the importance of the conflict. All over the Union the cause of tariff reform, of an untrammeled bal lot, of economy in governmental ex penditures, is championed by a united host of earnest, toiling men. By tiie portents in the heavens, we shall con quer. __S_q But for lack of confidence in the util ity of courageous, indomitable effort, the Democracy would have carried Minne sota two years ago. The narrowness of that defeat has given the confidence wanted and nerved the party to grander effort this year. It is foolish to class the Minnesota of 1892 as surely, or even probably Republican. The state is Dem ocratic if all Democrats will do their duty. H9| Will you do yours? Will you help? _ A DEGENERATE SON. Poor old Gotham is all torn up again. That is, Mr. McAllisteb's Gotham is, and it is over uo less a matter thau the marital affairs of ' Mr. .' McAllister's precious son and heir. , lt seems that young hopeful was clandestinely mar ried in Baltimore eight years ago to a beautiful Southron, whose patronymic is Garmany, and whose parental abode is in Savannah. She was a school girl at the time, and he a callow fledgeling. They kept the marriage secret for sev eral years, and were then married over again at the behest or" the fair maiden's fiery Southern brothers. A brief trip to Niagara, and the jig was up. They didn't suit each other— it was all a mis take. Of course. Marriages usually are where the "high contracting parties" have common property in a champagne appetite and a beer income. Niagara ••busted" Mr. McAllister Jr., as it had many a man before him, and" Mrs. Mc- Allister Jr. went back to her brothers. That was some time ago. What is agi tating the 400 just now is Mrs. McAllis lee Jr.'s discontent at the existing or derof things. She has neither a hus band nor a monetary compensation, and no wonder she protests. She has gotten lawyers after young McAllister, and both divorce and alimony are in her eye. McAllister pere must either settle handsomely or stand some very unpleas ant disclosures. That is the situation to date, and no wonder Mr. McAllister's 899 dear friends are stirred to their pro fouiidest depths (which, luckily, isn't saying very much). Mr. McAllister's own unhappy state of alleged mind may be easily imagined. He must be a de generate son, indeed, who brings grief upon so illustrious a sire. C^^- A BOOM IX JERUSALEM. There is a boom in Jerusalem ! Shades of the patriarchs and prophets preserve us! but is nothing sacred to this waning nineteenth century? A boom in Jeru salcm! The Holy Land given over to the machinations of irreverent real es tate sharks! The venerable piles suc cumbing to the march of progress! The ancient caravan supplanted by the snorting locomotive! It is tough, "but it is true. Tne railroad has been com pleted, and, within the past week, put in operation between Jaffa and Jerusa lem. As a consequence, a boom that would do credit to wild Western Amer ica has struck Jerusalem. The boom has, in fact, been in full swing for some time, anticipating the advent of the railroad. A missionary writes to a Chicago friend that over 300 buildings residences, hotels and business houses —have been erected; real estate agents are swarming into the sacred city, and there is a life and bustle all about that is strange indeed." No, hot, strange ; ' nothing is strange nowadays. Jerusalem is only sharing THE SAINT PAUL DAILr GLOBE:. MONDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER __ «892: the fate of all . that ; blocks the ". path .of this profane spirit of modern progress. No spot is sacred, uo somnolence is safe. Even Kansas City may get a waking up some day, since Jerusalem has had a boom. __a9S&____*m_tl This is a Democratic year. The South says it. Vermont says it. Maine says it. . , Minnesota must join m the refrain. Will you help? . Bocrke Cockrax had his eyes opened at the Chicago convention, and he hasn't closed them Blnce to at least one great truth, He expresses it himself as follows: "The people of tnis country believe that Groveh Cleveland typifies today the highest form of development which American citi zenship has reached, because in all his life and all his career there is not a. single act whicn needs explanation, and, though ene mies may criticise him. the whole people ad mire and respect him." A prophet of Java has been : paid $100 a year for the last fifteen years "for not pre dicting a tidal wave which will sweep clear over the island. - ' But that is way under, tho figure Mr. Platt gets for discontinuing his prophesies of Republican defeat In New York. Hon. Michael McDonald was discharged from custody in Chicago Friday on the ground of "insufficient- evidence." Insuf ficient evidence of what? That Michael would bribe? Or that a Chicago police of ficial would refuse to be bribed? The irreverent St. Louis Globe-Democrat defines Col. Elliott F. Shki-arh as -the in candescent idiot of the Mail and Express." Let's sec; incandescent means "white with heat.'' What can have been warming the colonel up so? Judge Clahk, the bolting Democratic can didate for governor of Texas, says the In dorsement of his candidacy by Texas Re publicans will make him 100,000 votes. Is it possible there are that many federal offices in Texas? It has become the fashion with Chicago belles to first shoot their admirers in the stomach and then sue 'em for damages. The more we read about Chicago women the more we admire Chicago men. They deserve the fair. PHHSMSB Charlie Fauwell's silence is of the Del sartean sort. It is relieved by a variety of gesticulation which is, pehaps, best and most frequently illustrated by the busiuess end of a mule. Some of those immigrants will be fit sub jects, for the attentions of St. Anthony Com stock if they rely exclusively on. the ward robe left them by the fumigating officials. A woman who had smoked her pipe every day for eighty-five years has just died in Lancashire. England. It is sad to see vice thus claiming its early victims. '•Miss Wallup, of Kansas, is in the city," reports an exchange, and then considers it necessary to add that "Miss Wallcp is a school teacher." Of course. Chicago has been nresented with a statue Ot Humboldt, and the very next thing Chica go does will be to find out who in thunder Humboldt was. Mr. Manley says the Maine slump was of no significance. Mr. Blame nothing. 'The shallows murmur, but the deeps are dumb." DEMOCRATIC SPEAKERS. Points to Which They Have Been Assigned.

Dear Sir: I inclose $2 towards the campaign fund. 1 wish 1 could send more; but 1 "suppose if every Democrat would send you $2,0r even $l,you would have quite a fund. It has been a source of amazement to me to see the Western farmers vote for a high tariff party to the extent they have done for eight years past. You cannot reiterate too often the fact that the best men in the Repub lican party, if free to express their con victions, would advocate low tariff, especially for ail our Western states. Why not publish some of the Pioneer Press editorials written on the sub ject at a time when the editor was allowed to exercise his in tellect as his reason and com mon sense dictated. It is monstrous that such a deal as was made between the Republican party and the manufact urers in 1888 should be carried out by the voluntary aid of the victims of the conspiracy. The McKinley bill is noth ing but a compilation of requests made by different manufacturers, and in re turn for this an almost unlimited cam paign fund is at the disposal of the Re publican committee. On the 2d of this month R. G. Dun & Co. reported that the price of wheat was lower than it has been since ISS:-*J and that was the same day, l believe. that an editorial appeared in the Pioneer Press on agricultural prosperity. lam not interested in politics, but I read and think about such things, and it -makes me sad to see so many of the farmers of Minnesota walk up to the polls every year and lick the hand that robs them.

But the good people of Livamo, who deify the young man as a composer, evidently did not wish to see him waste his . time with . politics, and failed to elect him.

The Republican stump in Maine was a foregone conclusion. Republican Chairman Mauley knew days ago, by the rumbling of the granite beneath his feet, exactly what was coming. The Maine pines have made answer to the Vermont hill-tops, and their blended voices will sound like a wailing dirga in the camps ot McKinleyism.—Phila delphia Record.

The farmers of the Sixth district may learn, in perusing the "record of the wheat ring-exposure, why it is that the price of "wheat has been kept down. This ring is a .Republican one. and is made up of a horde of McKinleyites. There is but one way to down them and overthrow the rascals— turn the Repub lican state officers out; elect Dan Law ler, who "wears no man's collar," and choose a legislature which will stand by him in bringing the rascals to justice. A SILLY BLUFF. Mankato Review. \ In April, 1883, Charles A. Pillsburv wrote a letter to a Paris banker that certain elevator companies in the state in which he is a stockholder paid divi dends ranging from 30 to 40 per cent. In June of -the same year he wrote to Mr. Arnold at Larimbre, Dak., that "our elevators have not paid at all lately;" that "the elevator business is overdone,"-and that "the loss during the.last year has been fearful." There is an apparent conflict in these state ments, yet he offers to submit his books and papers to a commission, and if he cannot prove each statement to be true, to give, -his checks for $5,000 for each failure to so prove to the Democratic state committee. Mr. Pillsburv is bluff ing.-;-^' : ONE PATH OF ESCAPE. .Brownsville News. No partaker of the "Belshazzar Feast" will do. No man who goes back on his tariff opinion for the sake of of fice; no man who was a freetrader when free and is a protectionist for place will do; no man who has been in and out of every party in which he thought he could get place; no man who ever offered to stand between the rail roads and the farmers and be a "buffer" for the latter against the assaults of the former; noma:', who offered a railroad president to do this if he would endorse his application for a federal office, will do. You cannot trust them. This bars out Nelson and Donnelly, and leaves only the man who has told you that if elected he would "be no man's man and wear no man's collar.'.' Elect Dan W. Lawler governor and an honest legisla ture, and our farmers will again have the old-fashioned, open, competitive markets for their grain. The path of escape from the combination which now masters them is only in this direction. SHALE THE STEAL BE PERPETUATED? Perham Bulletin. The St.Paul Globe of Sunday last was a hummer, It published two pages on the wheat combine, showing* that the elevators and wheat ring of the state entered into a combination with the Republican party whereby they paid an enormous amount of money into ! the corruption fund, with the proviso ! that they should have the naming. the warehouse . and railroad commis sioners. The article shows up the com bine as one of the most gigantic steals ever perpetrated on the American peo ple. Knute Nelson is the Republican candidate tor governor, credited attor ney tor the Great Northern way. and if he is elected will be compelled to ap point such commissioners as the ele vators name. Citizens of the state of Minnesota, do you want to perpetuate this steal? If so vote for Knute Nelson, by ali means. If you don't, then vote for the "no man's man," Dan W. Lawler. BETTING PROVES NOTHING. St.' Cloud Times. C. A. Pillsbury offers to bet $10,000 that the Chicago Herald's publication as to the profits of Die elevators and mills does not present the truth. He proposes air investigation to decide it. Betting proves nothing. It may all be a bluff such things are usually. WHERE KNUTE STANDS. Pipestone Fanner's Leader. The St. Paul Globs on Sunday and Monday published columns of the ex pose of the wheat combine, but Knute Nelson in his speech at St. Paul Monday evening never alluded to the fraud that is being practiced upon the people whose votes he is asking for. As usual, Knute stands by the "trusts and com bines. IT IS TIME FOR THE FARMER TO ACT. Winona Herald. He (Pillsbury) has endeavored by making a big "bluff" to clear himself with a bet. He proposes to forfeit $10, --000 to the Minnesota Democratic state committee should he fail to substantiate two out of several specifications made. He, of course, has charge of his own business, and no one can force him to disclose that which he does not wish to disclose, and his bluff is therefore a one sided affair. He will not explain, how ever, how it is that the wheat buyers have become enormously rich, and the farmer remained at a standstill. If j there is such a vast amount of money to be made out of wheat, why is it that the farmer does not become wealthy? It is but right that the man who per forms the labor should receive a share of the profits. The time has arrived when the farmer should put his shoul der to the wheel, and assist in removing from .power the powerful and monstrous ring which has for years run this slate. e.(i_» PLEUROPNEUMONIA.

" JUPITER'S FIVE MOONS. An Interest ing Dispute in Regard r /y /■ 'y//.. '■_ to Them. San Francisco, Cal., Sept. 25.— ; Prof. E. B. Barnard, the noted astron omer who recently discovered Jupiter's fifth satellite, has sent a long communi cation from Lick Observatory in refer ence to the statement by Lawyer Cog ley, Washington, that he, and not Barn ard, first discovered the new moon. Prof. Barnard says: "I have stated that this new satellite to Jupiter is of the thirteenth magni tude. There is a certain relation be tween the aperture of the telescope and its penetrating power or the faintness of the star that can bo seen with it. Now, a five-inch " telescope would not show this satellite if it were isolated on a dark sky away from the planet. Place now this tiny point of light close in the immediate glow of a giant planet, and it becomes one of the most difficult ob jects in the heavens, and can only he seen in the greatest telescopes, and even only tneu with special precaution, such as hiding the planet behind a .bar in he-eye piece to get rid of the daz zling light. The claim, therefore, of Mr. Cogley is of the highest absurdity. One of his five moons was a bright star, per haps visible to the naked eve, and if ho will go back to see where JuDiter was on the date of his observation he will find the self-same star right there— where it has been since the dawn of creation. For Mr. Cogley to see the new satellite with a five-inch, or even with a telescope ten times as powerful, is a physical impossibility. The Lick telescope is fifty times as powerful as his five-inch, and the new moon is ordi narily a difficult object with it. On tho best night we have had since the dis covery 1 tried every means Known to me to see it with our twelve-inch superb instrument, and one long ago shown by Mr. Burnham to be the best telescope in the world for its size, but no trace of the little moon could be made out, though it was then at its greatest dis tance from the planet. 1 shall be happy, indeed, if the discovery is verified by the twenty-six-inch at' Washington or twenty-six at the University of Vir ginia. "Since Mr. Cogley's claim was pub lished 1 have received a letter from a minister of the gospel who lives in ono of the Eastern cities, and who claims to have discovered the fifth satellite with a small telescope while showing Jupiter to some friends on the Sth of Septem ber. 1 have taken time and patience to go extensively into this matter to show the absurdity of such claims, for there are others to contradict, and it is well for the public to know just how to meet them. I cannot attempt to an swer all that may be. made, It is un fortunate that on the night of the dis covery there was a bright star near Jupiter, and every amateur that looked at the planet on that date will now re call to himself that be then also saw th» five moons of Jupiter."
