A nation naturally has a deep and
Thai interest in knowing the record and
understanding the character of an indi
vidual who aspires to the second high
est oflice in the government. The nom
ination of Whitelaw Reid for vice presi
dent by the Republican party in con
vention assembled renders His charac
ter and acts subject to the closest pub
lic scrutiny and investigation, and,
moreover, makes it fie imperative duty
of every suffragist to participate In such
investigation in order that he may pie
pare himself for an intelligent and
patriotic exercise of his sovereign right
of suffrage. The Globe considers itself
under obligations to the public to place
before it all features and phases of Mr.
Reid's career which have a bearing on
his fitness or unfitness for the vice
presidential oflice. It is the manifest
duty of all newspapers to thus place the
careers of candidates for high oflice in
evidence before the people whom they
aspire to govern. The Globe's con
temporary, the Pioneer Press, must, in
common honesty, coincide with the
Globe's views on this point. The
Pioneer Press must see the eminent
suitability of placing before the people
the record of Whitelaw Reid's acts and
utterances. The Globe gives a portion
Of this record below, which it chal
lenges the Pioneer Press to reproduce
or to refute.
31r. Reid was the war correspondent
of the Cincinnati Gazette, in which
journal he gave the country the benefit
of his genius in statesmanship and mili
tary strategy in the form of criticisms
upon the misconduct of Mr. Lincoln
and the incapacity of the generals in
the field. Of the battle of Pittsburg
Landing he said every man fought as
he pleased, and four days later, April
18, 18C2, he wrote:
"If worthless officers had attended to.
enforcing this sort of discipline, as the
regulations require, instead of playing
euchre and drinking whisky, the blood
of the men murdered in their tents that
Sunday morning would not now be rest
ing on their heads. But it is astounding
tiiat high officers, knowing the proba
bilities of attack, took no visible meas
ures to prepare for it. 1 have hereto
fore spoken of Gen. Grant's saying, as
early as Friday, that he thought au at
tack very probable. Knowing the
forces at Corinth, and that his troops
thus menaced were between an over
powering enemy in front and a deep
river in the rear, probability of attack
was certainly serious enough matter to
demand preparation."
JJIr. Strategist Reid.
What a pity it seems that Mr. Lincoln
did not ace upon tie plain indications
of this correspondence, and place the
Southwestern army under the sagacious
command ot this great strategist, thus
at once ridding the country of the in
capacity of Grant and the other "worth
less officers" who played euchre and
drank whisky!
At a later date Mr. Reid characterized
Mr. Seward as "the Mepliistopheles of
the administration." Writing from
Washington, under date of July 28, the
present Republican candidate for vice
president says:
"No one need to be told that the presi
dent's course has hitherto leaned largely
to the policy of the conciliation party,
and there are few who are not now sat
isfied that but for that policy the war
might by this time be ended. Mr.
Seward has all the time had more in
fluence over the president than any
otiier member of his cabinet. Of nearly
every conservative demonstration by
the president— the mortification of Fre
mont, the disapproval of Hunter — the
persistent promotion of men like I3uell,
who are more famous for their zeal in
protecting rebel property than in mov
ing against rebel armies to the impor
tant commands; the threatened veto of
the confiscation act, and tly^. halting
manner in which provision has been
made by proclamation for carrying out
its provisions— it might be said 'the
hand of Joab is in this thing.' Secre
tary Seward, his mark, was visible in
every one."
lv 1802 congress passed an act declar
ing that slaves escaping into the Union
lines should be "deemed captives of
war, and forever freed of their servi
tude" where they belonged to '-persons
engaged in rebellion or giving aid and
comfort thereto."
Roasts Mr. Lincoln.
Mr. Lincoln's method of enforcing
this law fell far short of meeting Mr.
Reid's approval. Under date of July 29
Mr. Reid wiote from Washington:
"Congress has accepted the issue, and
at one blow lias decreed the extinction
of slavery iv the cotton states. Is the
administration manly enougu to face
the inevitable result now, or must we
epend a few more scores of millions and
pacrifice a few more thousands of lives,
only then to start in at the point at
winch we now stand? We all know how
Mr. Lincoln waits for the popular de
mands to push him forward. The theory
of the administration-is that they should,
follow, not lead, the spirit of the people.
For the present 1 believe the president
sss3Bs • • ' - i '"'■'■ .■"._» '' &- I N Np ■
has pretty fairly indicated in his execu
tive oider fatal to our prospects of
success in the war. - - * The time
has come when it will, indeed, be well
to award honors to those rare spirits
who refuse to despair of the republic."
A noi Iht Blast at Lincoln.
In spite of Mr. Reid's Tissurances of
Lincoln's incapacity, and of the way in
which the country was going to "the
demnition bow-wows" under his feeble
administration, the people re-elected
him in I»>4. A few days afterwards,
viz, on Nov. 17, Mr. Reid explained this
extraordinary popular blunder thus:
"The election decides another thing, *
* that the republic shall be undivided
and indivisible. * * These things
were not passed upon and irreversibly
settled by the people inconsiderately.
There was never a political campaign
so * ~ unbiased by personal consid
erations. There was no personal en
thusiasm; men voted for the cause and
not for Mr. Lincoln. * * * Three
fourths of the leading speakers at the
meetings could not have been induced
to give the administration their indorse
Attacking Grant.
Mr. Reid accused Gen. Grant of near
ly every crime on the calendar. His
friends were denominated the "robber
ring," and his relatives, no matter how
young or obscure, were sought out and
attacked in the bitterest way. On Aug.
19. 1872, Mr. Reid wrote in the New
York Tribune of G»i. Grant, under the
heading, "Bribery or Nepotism:"
"We have not yet published or re
ferred to the serious statement made in
a recent number of the Chicago Tribune
in regard to an alleged transfer of a val
uable piece of property on ti» outskirts
of Chicago trom J. Russell Jones to the
president, without any further consid
eration than that which might be in
ferred from the fact that Jones was
about that time appointed minister to
Belgium. It is-a matter of the first im
portance that the friends of Gen. Grant
should pay prompt attention to the ease
and make some satisfactory explanation
of it. We receive every day circum
stantial and apparently truthful stories
about the president's" misconduct in
various ways, which we steadily refuse
to publish* believing that enough is
already known to enable the people to
make up their minds in regard to the
personal aspects of the campaign."
After the renomination of President
Grant at Philadelphia in June, 1572. Mr.
Reid wrote:
"Grant has proven himself incompe
tent as a civil administrator. He has
developed a shameless disregard of con
stitutional restraints and an alarming
fondness for personal government. He
has surrounded himself with corrupt
favorites and demoralized the public
service by improper appointments. He
has fomented discord in the party, and
the antics of his henchmen in congress
liave degraded the legislative branch to
the lowest point it has ever reached in
our liistoiy."
And again Reid wrote of Grant:
"But now that the time lias come that
all the powers of government are to be
put in operation to compel the re-elec
tion of this conspicuous failure and the
perpetuation of tl:is discreditable ex
ploitation of the executive office, it is
the duty of every man .who disapproves
of such a use of the presidency to speak
plainly the truth that most men feel—
that Gen. Giant is uot a fit man to be
And again, on Aug. 6. 1872:
"Various are tl.e names by which the
Philadelphia candidate is called. By
some he is styled Hiram Ulysses. By
others he is named the Great Renomi
nationist. There are those who, with
eloquent simplicity, dub him Doctor.
But a Western newspaper, not inaptly,
names him the Seaside Lounger, which
is pietty and neat and classical and sin
gularly appropriate for a gentleman
bearing the marine name 3f Ulysses."
From this time on till election day
Whitelaw Reid wrote about the presi
dent as "Dr. Grant." Grand Army men
have not forgotten it.
(>rant Dt-pU-tcd as Conscienceless.
Previously, on May 31, 1872, Mr. Reid
had written of the hero of Appomattox:
"W hile we do not expect Gen. Grant
to understand the scandal of many of
the appointments which he has made,
it does set-in incredible that he should
so obstinately persist in keeping men in
place who have done nothing so thor
oughly as to demonstrate their own un
fitness for it. " * *
"Gen. Grant seems to have forgotten
that the president is a civil and not .a
military officer, and this explains his
undertaking to govern the South as if
it were still a great entrenched camp;
his manipulating our foreign policy as
if he were treating with an enemy at
his mercy and upon the point of sur
render—until, indeed, the tables in one
or two cases wore turned and he was
ready himself to surrender; his issuing
his instructions to free citizens about to
vote as if they were his old infantry
about to engage in battle.
"Gen. Grant is a soldier, and the old
habits of a soldier stick to him. He has
many of the professional faults of Jack
son, and apparently no comprehension
of that strict, law-abiding conscience
which redeemed the soldierly chaiacter
of Washington, of Taylor and of Harri
son. They were good soldiers, but bet
ter citizens. They never attempted to
govern the republic by general orders."
A Stab at Sherman.
Gen. Sherman was once quoted as
saying of Whitelaw Reid, the war corre
spondent: "The coward ran away from
the battle of Shiloh, and never stopped
running till ne reached Cincinnati."
When Whitelaw Reid became the Trib
une's editor "Old Tecuniseh" was trav
eling abroad with Lieut. Grant. He was
received everywhere with honors and
affection. He was not too far away,
however, to feel the sting of Mr. Reid's
pen. The present Republican candidate
for vice president, had been in control
of the Tribune's editorial columns just
thirty-three days when this contempt
uous allusion to Gen. Sherman's notable
trip appeared.
"Gen. Sherman's march through Rus
sia is made to appear sufficiently an
ovation to show that the Russian gov
ernment is magnanimous enough to
forgive the Catacazy unpleasantness.
Even the presence of young Mr. Grant
was not enough to spoil the flavor of
that fine oid traditional friendship be
tween Russia and America, of which we
have heard so much."
Abuse of Loffau.
John A. Logan also became a target
for Reid's abuse. Mr. Reid impugned
Gen. Logan's motives in defending Gen.
Grant by comparing him to the conspic
uous gambler of that time, John Morris
sey. He wrote:
"Unexpected champions have arisen
to defend the president from the terri
ble arraignment of Senator Sumner.
The first was Flanagan, of Texas. ■ *
The second champion was Geu. John
A. Logan. His speech deserves no no
tice in itself. It was one mass of rank
adjectives. There was nothing what
ever in the speech except that Logan
made it, and this is a matter not without
a certain 'importance. It only means
that he. imagines Gen. Grant is to De re
elected, and that in tnat case he can
take the state patronage into his own
hands. He, like most of Gen. Grant's
partisans, avows his contempt foj re
form in the civil service, and openly re
gards public office as the proper reward
for partisan activity."

Rki> Wing, Minn., Oct. 20.— This city
gave a magnificent ovation to Hon.
Roger Q. Mills, the noted Texas orator
and world famed statesman, today and
tonight. The city was aroused as never
before. Farmers came in wagons from
ten to thirty miles from the surround
ing country to hear Democracy and
tariff reform from the great champion of
equal rights and honest taxation
The streets swarmed with thousands of
people, most of whom were from the
country. Mr. Mills arrived in the city
during the afternoon, and was escorted
from the train to the hotel by a number
of leading men. lie had been suffering
from a cold, and retired to his room,
where be rested until evening. The
Speaking at Night
was in the opera house. A special train
carrying 150 citizens from Lake City
and other points arrived before the
meeting began. There were also dele
gations from Hastings, Zumbrota,G«od
hue county and Pierce county, Wiscon
sin. Long before the hour for speaking
began 1.200 people crowded into the
opera house, and a large number were
turned away, unable to secure adtnis-*
sion. Mr. Mills was escorted to the
opera house by a committee com
posed of the following gentlemen, and
headed by the Red Wing band, J. C
Pierce, chairman of the county com"
mittee, Peter Nelson, 11. G. Jansen,
Nick Longreen.Dr. Opsal,G. W. Hauen
stein, Charles Beckman. C. E. Freder
ick. L. B. Foot and 0. A. Betcher.
Among others having seats on the stage
were Lewis Baker, chairman of the
state committee, Hon. John W. Willis
and Frank \V. M. Cutcheon. of St. Paul.
lion. O. M. Hall presided at the
meeting, and introduced the speakers of
the evening in an excellent address,
during which he said that whatever men
had thought, studied or read concern
ing the tariff question the name of
Roger Q. Mills is stamped thereon and
became a household name. When Mr.
Mills arose to address the meeting, he
was greeted with
Immense Applause.
His speech was one of his best efforts,
and for over two hours he contrasted
high tariff and protection to monopolies
with honest taxation that shall not op
press the great masses. He riddled the
Republican policy of favoring the few,
and advocated the Democratic idea of
lessening the burdens of taxation. He
appealed to the agricultural classes to
vote in their own interests and to crush
out a policy that operates against their
prosperity and interests. He declared
that the passage of a wise tariff
law will enhance the purchasing value
of the farm products and materially de
crease the price of goods the farmer
and workiugman must buy.
The history of the tariff was succinct
ly discussed and tersely analyzed. He
wanted the Republicans to answer why
the tariff does not increase the price of
wages, when it is claimed by them to
have been passed for that purpose.
The frequent applause indicated that
Mr. Mills had fully demonstrated the
Heresy of the Republican party and that
the tariff had been made plain. Such a
meeting in a Republican stronghold
could not do otherwise than demonstrate
that much good was done.

Caki/ton, Minn., Oct. 20.— Hon. D.
W. Lawler, H. H. Hawkins and Mayor
Baldwin spoke here today. The dem
onstration in their behalf has never be
fore been equaled in the history of
Carlton. The trio were met at the
depot by a large number of citizens and
escorted to the hotel, where H. H.
Hawkins met and introduced our dis
tinguished guests to many citizens, who
were all favorably impressed with
the next governor and whose friendly
grasp made him many votes. The
barbecue ox, under the "management of
H. L. Wiard, editor of the Vidette, was
roasting all morning, and at 2p.m. a
large crowd gathered around the tables
and partook ol tariff reform refresh
ments.of the every-day food of the com
mon people. After the feast the entire
crowd repaired to the court house and
listened to able speeches. I). W. Lawler
discussed at length the iniquitous Mc-
Kinley tariff robbery and the wheat
ring thieves. There is no question as
to the vote of Carlton county. The
Democratic outlook is indeed bright.
North Dakota Republicans Refuse
a Joint Debate.
Special to the Globe. ■
Fahgo, N. D., Oct. 20.— For six weeks
there has been a standing challenge
from the Cleveland and Stevenson club, 1
of this city,to the Republican Flambeau
club to participate in a joint debate, at
any time and place, and any number to
take part, at the selection of the Repub
club. The challenge has not been ac
cepted and last night M. N. Johnson,,
candidate for congress on the Republi
can ticket, being in the city to make a
speech, the following challenge was
published in the evening papers: '
To Hon. M. N. Johnson: Whereas the
Cleveland and Stevenson club, of the city of
Fargo, has challenged the Republican Flam
beau club of said city to meet from one to

A Despicable Piece of Work in :
Polk County.
Special to the Globe.
iIED Lake Falls, Oct. 20.— Another
case of Republican bribery has just
been unearthed in this city, which
shows better than anything has yet
done the desperate straits they are
being driven to in order to make a show
ing for their, candidates. The particu
lars of the case are as follows: ■;
There are now about 400 men at work
on the Great Northern extension to this
place. A large proportion of these men
are Democrats and many of them be
long to the local Democratic club, but
when the Democratic rally was held
here last week not one of the men toon
part in the parade or attended the meet-, j
ing at which Messrs. Lawler and Kelso
spoke. 'Not much was thought about
this at the time, as the crowd was so
large as it was that the hall could not
begin to hold them. But on Saturday
evening the Republicans had a rally, at
which Ilalvor. Steenerson and Henry
Feig were the speakers, and, to the sur
prise of the Democrats, nearly every
one of the railroad men turned out. in
command of the foreman of the differ
ent canes, and not only attended the
meeting but carried torches in the pro
cession. In fact, there were not a
dozen men in the parade outside of the
railroad crew. -
This created a suspicion that all was
not right, and yesterday one of the men
belonging to the railroad crew told that
a short time before the Democratic
meeting one of the officials of the Great
Northern railway, who is well known
in this section, arranged to pay the fore
men $200. to be divided up among the
men, upon condition that they refrain
from attending the Democratic rally,
and that they carry torches in the pa
rade and attend the meeting in honor of
Messrs. .Steenerson and Feic. The
statement of this man, who had charge
of one of the gangs, has since been con
firmed by several of the other men, and
some of them are prepared to make affi
davit to it if necessary. Some of the
men who were willin^togo as •* favor to
their foreman were not paid anything;
others got from 50 cents to ?l each.

Sioux Falls, Oct. 2o.— Republican
state committee had better luck in their
"fat-frying" from the attaches of the
penitentiary in this city than with the
faculty of Brookings college. C. E. Mc-
Kinney, Minnebaha's member . of • the
state central coinmittea, not long since
called upon Warden Spooner and noti
fied him that the state Republican com
mittee wanted &>oo from that institu
tion to help defray the legitimate ex
penses of a campaign of education.
Brother Spoon? r squirmed a little at
first, but was hualiy convinced that it
was O. X.. and raised the amount—
ing the contribution of all the employes
to his own. It is said the Republicans
thought som« of assessing the convicts,
but this was finally abandoned.
The next attempt to extort political
blood money was made at the deal and
dumb institution here. Mr. McKinney
notified Prof. Simpson that the commit
tee had decided that $100 would be the
proper sum for the teachers of that
school to disgorge. • Prof. Simpson is a
good Republican, but. he peremptorily
refused to be bled in any snch manner.
McKinney raved, and insisted that the
success of the Republican party in the
state depended on those assessments.
Simpson was firm,- and replied that the
school was not in politics: that his was
not a political office, ana he obsolutely
refused to be squeezed.

exhausted, and cannot turu her head
upon the pillow. Her cough, which had
ceased to trouble her, is now said to
have increased in violence. This, com

depressing and exhausting effect ou the

Mrs. Harrison passed a comparatively

from nervousness. She experienced
more difficulty than usual, however, in

Although she is in such a weak state,

A Little Stronger.
At 10 o'clock Mrs. Harrison had
rallied somewhat from her severe attack
of prostration and Dr. Gardner said she
was resting a little more quietly and
feeling a little stronger. The doctor
said he was about to retire at that hour
and would be called if he was needed at
the White house. Mrs. Harrisou's con

Unanswerable Arguments.

Canton, Minn., Oct. 20.— Canton did
itself proud this evening, and the Demo
crats are hilarious. The cause was an
enthusiastic Democratic meeting held
under the auspices of the Democratic
club. The speaker of the evening was
Hon. W. H. Butler, congressman from
the Fourth lowa district. He gave an
exposition of the tariff that was so clear
and comprehensive that a child could
understand it, and he carried dismay to
the Republicans who were present, for
his statements and arguments were
simply unanswerable.

Spirited Discussion Over the Pro
posed Church Unity Amend
Baltimore, Oct. 20.— At this morn
ing's session of the eeneral Episcopal
convention Judge r Wilder, of Minne
sota, reported unfavorably from the
committee on constitutional amend
ments the resolution to allow missionary
deputies to vote in the convention. The
reDort was adopted.
The house of bishops was in council
nearly all the morning. They adopted
a resolution non-concurring in the se
lection of San Francisco as the next
place of meeting, and appointed anoth
er committee of conference. Denver,
the city first selected by the house of
deputies, will be agreed upon.
The discussion of the proposed
"Church Unity" amendments of Rev.
Dr. Huntington to the constitution of
the church resulted in the most spirited
scene of the whole convention, in which
Dr. lluniington was accused of sharp
practices in endeavoring to carry his
I point. The amendment came up as the
order of the day in the deputies. Pend
ing the smoothing over of the matter
the house took a recess.
At the beginning of the. afternoon
j session Dr. Huntington presented the
report he had tried to offer in the morn
ing. He offered substitutes for original
resolutions. These provide that the
Lambeth-Chicago,' declarations' be re
ferred to the joint committee on revi
sion ; and be requested to report at the
next .meeting. changes they rec
ommended. "
The delay which would result in get
ting out the book caused this action, and

will be printed in Oxford, England, as
heretofore. Dr. Samuel Heart, of Trin
ity college, Connecticut, was elected re
viser of the standard prayer book.
The convention then adjourned.

Did Tom Howard or ''Dap"

anything concerning the inside work
ings of the campaign, have given up
Their poll of the state shows plurali

The people of Minnesota are doing a
great deal of cool, calm thinking in this
campaign, and have made up their
minds upon several points, which ac
count* for the fact that Republican cam
paign meetings are poorly attended as a
rule, while the public halls have not
been large enough for the Democratic
The people of Minnesota have made
up their minds that thirty years is long
enough to entrust the government of
tha state to one political party, and that
a change is absolutely demanded.
They have heard the evidence in the
elevator and railroad wheat steal, and
decided that Charles A. Pillsbury and
the other members of the combine have
too much influence in Kepublican coun
cils to render it safe to give that party
a further lease of life.
The people have noticed that Chair<
man Jamison has been devoting himself
and the energies of the committee to
proving that there is no combine, and
has been no plundering of the producers
of the state.
They have been made to understand
that this is the position of the Kepub
lican party of the state.
It is the position of the ring, and the
men the ring is backing for office.
Of course, it is not the position of the
Republican farmers of the state, the
honest rank and file who are Repub
licans not for plunder, but from princi
ple. They are in favor of good govern
ment, and of a government that will do
justice to all men.
And it is this class of men that are
goinK to help the Democrats clean out
the wheat ring, the iron ring, the pine
laud ring and the state house gang two
weeks from next Tuesday.
There was a great deal of merriment
among the Democrats and independents
over the circular or "appeal" issued
over the name of Chairman Jamison.
The Democrats who never met Mr.
Jamison were anxious to see him. As
one of them remarked:
"I think he must be a curiosity. A
man who would give up a campaign in
that style."
In Republican circles there was less
merriment and a good deal of conster
nation. Many would not believe that
Chairman Jamison penned the appeal,
and all were positive that Tarns Bixby
did not. Several who are familiar with
the political -poster -Orange circular
style of "Tom" Howard expressed the
opinion that he did it.
"I tell you that appeal was the work
of "Tom" Howard," said a well known
local Kepublican leader to a little crowd
last evening. "It looks like him, sounds
like him, and possesses one quality to
be found in all Tom's political writ
"What is that?" asked one ot the
"A very bad quality, to say the least,"
was the reply. "That circular is worse
than a boomerang. It concedes that we
are licked all along the line, and know
"1 do not agree with you on that mat
ter," said one of the gentlemen. "I
read and heard Darius Reese's speeches
and I am satisfied he wrote the appeal
for 'Bob' Jamison."
"You are mistaken," said another.
"Tom Howard did it to get back at the
Pioneer Press. He knew that the an
cient organ would print the stuff if his
identity was kept concealed. And he
was right."
Chairman Jamison's address settled
the result in this state. Every Demo
crat and independent is alive to the fact
that victory is at hand.
Thousands of independent and honest
Republicans are as happy over the pros
pect of Lawler's election as the Demo
The defenders and patrons of the
whent and other rings are beatun at
every point and they realize it.
Republican Defenders and Pa*
trons of Rings Are Not in It.
The Kepublican state central commit
tee is short of campaign speakers. This
has been its cry for more than a week
back. They say they find it next to
impossible to cover the state thoroughly
with campaigners. This is a new situa
tion for the Republicans to be in, and
the query arises. How does it happen?
There aie several reasons for it. In the
first place rnych of the brains of the
party have deserted it. The smartest
and ablest men who were footloose from
office, and left to follow the dictates of
their reason and conscience, have be
come disgusted and dropped out. Many
of them are staying at home,
and when they aie asked to go
out on the stump, they reply
that their affairs or professional duties
are so pressing that they cannot do so.
A few of the most aggressive ones have
left, the party and goiie over to the Dem
ocrats or Populists. As, for instance,
there is Gen. James H. Baker; he is a
Democrat now, and is making speeches
in favor of tariff reform. Jim Baker's
departure is a great loss to the g. o. p.
He was by far their greatest war horse.
On the stump he outranked any Repub
lican in the state. Campaign after cam
paign he went over the state sweeping
everything before him. The rest of tha
Republicans were midgets by his side.
He \fas- known everywhere and re
ceived with tremendous enthusiasm.
But the old party became too tough
for him, and they must do without him.
Broken promises and false pretenses
stared him in the face until he could en
dure it no longer.
There are many lesser lights who
have year after year cone out with their
coats off and worked for that party ; but
