to do so 10 prevent the election of Owen.
The Guam has exposed and deuouueed
this infamy. It isn't through with it.

"The Globe Is right In calling down

the Democratic central committee Had
started in to win and had uasti-d a
vigorous campaign, the complexion of
the pohncal situation wouru bo vastly
different irom what it is today."
Fine words butter no parsnips- Put
this in plain English, scrape off the
slime of words.and what is the thought?
Becker stands no show, it is of more
importance to prevent Owen's electiou
than to elect Becker. Owen's election
must be prevented. Vote for Nelson.
That is what was in the writer's mind,
and what he means shall be read.
That is what a cowardly, sneaking,
treacherous pack of Democrats are
whispering on the street corners; that
is the word that is being sent out of
private offices. It is the same old gang
and the same- old work, only more
openly done. This paper aud the other
unmentionable one are but the cuckoos
in type of this gang. They don't want
Becker elected; T hey never- wanted a
Democrat elected. They defeated Eu
gene Wilson and Tom Wilson, and they
want Becker defeated by just enough to
give Neisou a plurality.
It is time for plain talk. The state
central committee has done all it could.
It has no menus. Bricks can't be made
without straw, nor can campaigns be
run without money. The men cuckooed
by these papers, ana who are advising
Democrats to vote for Nelson, are the
very ones who besought Becker to be
come a candidate. He told them he was
poor, and could not stand the expense.
They assured him the means to make
the campaign would be forthcoming.
When called on they coolly gave the
solicitor the laugh, and told him to
draw his own check. Aud their cuckoos
berate the committee!
Why did they beseech Becker to
stand? We have toid of thats.mday
meeting of July 22 in the Mere. mils'
hotel. It was there decided that a
ticket must he put in the field, or Owen
would be elected and Nelson defeated.
They hunted the state for a candidate,
and met with uniform refusals. They
knew Becker's sterling loyalty io his
party, and they played on it. They not
him nominated, and then deserted him.
thinking they had bagged their game.
Now, alarmed at the defection from
Nelson, they fear that Becker or Owen
will be elected, and are doing what they
: can to prevent it.
These are the shameful fact 3. We are
sick and tired of this kind or politics
and of this sort of Democrats. We are
weary of witnessing the great* loyal host
of Democrats biennially made trading
stock of by this gang of rotten, boodliug,
corporation-mortgaged tricksters, buy
ing and Doodling and bulldozing their
way into the organization so as to be
able to sell the party out. They plot
and intrigue to get where they can ditch
the party and then "pull the legs" of the
Republicans for the dirty work- These
cuckoo papers are but their organs
craftily iotas their bidding.
It is right that the Democrats of the
state should know this. The Globe, as
their only representative here, is but
doing its duty in telling them the facts
ana letting them know what is being
done by some of their so-called leaders,
and what this hypocritic sniveling of
these assistant Republican - papers
means. We know the Democracy of
Minnesota well enough to know that it
will apply the remedy and sorely disap
point the plotters by voting the Demo
cratic ticket. "

for that is the gentleman's name, is a
large, powerful man, of shapely propor
tions and proportionate shape— a man
who.se physical construction and men
tal attributes will withstand the shock
of a defeat most admirably. Not only
this, but Mr. Pottgieser is a man of
parts— several parts. Politically, he is
just what is needed in a crisis of this
kind. Having absorbed all the virtues
of all the parties with which he has as
sociated before he became inoculated
with the virus of protection, he will
command the solid support of all who
will vote for him. Just how he came to
float into the camp of the Republicans
is a question of so little moment that it
need not be discussed In this connec
tion. Suffice it to say that he is a Re
publican-or was the last time he con
sulted the barometer of his political
ambitions. And he has qualifications,
too. Lots of them. lie is said to be
almost six feet long and wide "accord

structure fairly bristles with qualifica

voter; he is fully qualified to cook a pot
of beans, mix a gin fizz or go in when it
rains— that is, if it rains real hard. -

has lived in St. Paul ever since he took
up his residence here; and. while he has
permuted a portion of his fame to stray
as for awny as Milwaukee, he has not
permitted his body to stray any further
away than the Connemara Patch. This
was partly owing to thu fact that he did
nut like to go away, but more, perhaps,
because he preferred to remain at home.
Let it be repeated that Mr. Pottgieser is
a most excellent and admirable candi
date, a man who will exactly suit every
body who likes that kind of a man; aud
it Is not at all improbable that his
friends will feel such an attachment for
him that they will not allow him to go
away, even as far as thu state capitol.
It is not so much the Republican or
gans that the Democracy needs t« fear,
for against them the public is always on
guard; but it is the assistant organs
which fly Uie colors of "independent
Democrat" that sow the seeds of discord
and suspicion. These are the papers
which say by iiiueudo and insinuation:
"Backer cannot be elected, anyhow;
Owen is unsafe; therefore, let us vote
for Nelson." Suppose, for the sake of
the iirjumeut only, that Keeker c.uld
not be elected. Could Owen be any
nioio "unsafe"' than the man who has
acted as the executive agent of the cor
porations for the past two years'.' Could
lie be anj more "unsafe" tl:an the man
who refuses to perform a routine duty
of his office which would save the state
$5,000,000 wnrth or lands? Could he be
any more "unsafe" tlidn the man who

THIS IS 100 MUCH.
Ex-Seuator John B. San born has sub
mitted to the GiLCSK a voluminous state
ment defending the course of himself
and Gov. Nelson with reference to the
bill placing the offices of sheriff, clerk
of courts and register of deeds on the
fee system instead of on salaries. So far
as Senator Sanborn is personally con
cerned, the Globe will be only too glad
to extend to him tiie use of its columns
in his own defense where it has criti
cised his action; but in this instance it
feels that it would be unjust and dis
courteous to its Republican contempo
raries to take up the defense of Gov.
Nelson. The Glove has given a true
and impartial statement of the means
used to pass the fee bill, and it beco mes
the duty of the Republican papers
which are supporting Air. Nelson
to make the defense for him if
there is any defense to be made.
Thus far the personal organ of
the governor has failed to explain his
remarkable action in this matter, and
until it does so the Globk does no', feel
Inclined to pursue the subject further.
There is more to be said, but sufficient
has been disclosed to cost Gov. Nelson
half the Republican voles of this county
unless he can offer some more plausible
defet.se than was set up for him in the
matter of the Great Northern land
grunt*. We have no disposition to take
advantage of the complications which
have recently arisen to embarrass Gov.
Nelson in his candidacy, but really we
feel that Senator Saßhorn is asking too
much when he conies to a Democratic
paper asking tor the defense of a Re
publican candidate, when the Repub
lican papers have withheld, for reasons
best known to themselves, the defense
which we are asked to make.

TKYINOTO FOuL DEMOCRATS.
For the last week the editorial col
umns of the Republican papers of the
cities have teemed with lurid pictures
ot the disasters that will fall on the
good and worthy people of this stale
should a majority, or even a plurality,
of them prefer to have Mr. Owen for
the governor oi Hie slate for two years.
Capital would wrap Us skirts about it
and flee the state. Cradlt would become
leery and refuse her helping hand. In
dustry would gu to loatiiii and labor
w-;uid go fishing, and the conditions
would b« almost as bad as they would
be if congress should enact freedom of
The Miuneapolis Journal, with what
it evidently thinks is commendable en
terprise, has sent out its missives of in
quiry and galhered from all portions of
the state opinions as to what would be
the effect on capital and business should
the people be so insane as to select Mr.
Owen for governor. With a unanimity
that is not surprising, seeing that all re
plying arc either Democrats or Repub
licans, they avow their belief that the
devil would be to pay, should that dire
event fall on the state.
This is neither politics, business uor
fact, it isn't even smart. It is a piece
of unmitigated asininity. It is only
another of the stock of bugaboos which
for twenty years has constituted the
whole political capital of the Republi
can party. It came from tha same
closet as the bloody shirt, the Confed
erate brigadiers, the Southern war
claim and the job lot of disasters that
Democratic control would entail.
It isn't politics.
What does it signify?
Does a party resort to such measures
if confident of. success?
It is a danger signal, the boom of the
cannon of a ship on the rocks.
It means that the managers of the Ik
publican campaign see that all is lost
unless enough Democrats can be scared
into leaving their candidate for Nelson.
It is a blast from the same fo? horn
that the Republi?an state central coin-,
mittee used a couple of weeks ago.
It isn't politics to admit so hopeless a

to be winning, that the boat is going
%It isn't business. What does It say to
capital here? What does it tell capital
that may be looking this way intending
investment? It admits Populism to be
so strong that nothing can prevent Its
success save the voUs of Democrats
who may be scared into helping the
Republicans out. It admits that this is
not "a Republican year," and is either
a Democratic or a Populist year, and
that these men think it is the latter.
For sixteen months these same ca
lamityitts have been telling capiui that
Democratic rule means ruin, and now
they assure It that Populist ruin is to be
superadded. What must be the effect
of this howl? Its immediate effect will
be, if their jeremiad is believed, the
withdrawal of money, a refusal to make
further investments and the turning
back of capital that may have been com
ing this way. That will be the present
effect of Ibis pernicious, pestiferous and
, And its future effect? Suppose that,
despite all this agonizing, Mr. Owen
should- be elected.' We don't believe tie
will be, ami lie certainly won't be if
Democrats simply do their duly, but
suppose he in. ; Then business mid capi
tal will wait to see the predicted pen.
They won't move a wheel or invest a dol
lar because they have I. ml the assurance
of a lot of idiotic editor* and bugabooedj
men that everything Is going to the
demnition bow wows. For two year*
the state will suffer what the medical
editor of the Pioneer Press diagnoses its
thi» "pnralyslst of disquietude." J
It is not fact. Minnesota doesn't coin]
silver or gold, and Mr. Owen's opinion
on what should uu done for silver will
be of as much practical effect as is bis
opinion on the' inhabitability of Mars.
Even if he were as wild-eyed and
impracticable, as— well, say Don-!
Nelly — be can. only execute the
laws, not make them. The leg
islature is sure to be three-legged
again, with no one party dominating;
so, if Owen should sit in the governor's
chair two years, he could work no mis
chief. We are not making an argument
for the election of Owen, but merely to
demonstrate thai, should tho - appre
hended worst of these asinine howlers
come to pass, it would not produce the
results they predict.
. But there is one sure way for our sad
eyed, fear-harrowed Republicans to
escape all danger. They admit in this
very wail that they cannot i!o anything
alone; that they must have the help of
Democrats. No such calamity as they
affect to fear could happen with Mr.
Becker governor. The Democrats won't
vote for Nelson. Then, as patriots, to
save the state, all Republicans should
come over and elect Mr. Becker. If
they are as beared as they pretend to
be. that is what they will do, for it is the
only possible salvation.

lect if they fait to improve this oppor- j
tunity to make up, at least in part, for

the number naturally belonging to the

There is but one more day of regis

It is the duty every Democrat owes to
the county and state to register.
That wasn't an altogether fortu'
tous introduction to the speech of
Thomas B. Reed, with his claim for a
cessation of tariff agitation, made by one j
of the speakers at the Reed banquet in
Chicago, who declared that it was the j
purpose of the Republican parly to
control the home market and that we
are determined that just such a duty
shall be laid upon every imported com
petitive article as may become neces
sary to accomplish this result. With l
'Join pleading subsequently for the!
election of Republican congressmen in;
order that there might be no change, it
was inharmonious in this speaker to say!
that "we shall change and modify every
existing statute as often and as radically ;
as time and circumstances may re- 1
quire," and the Minneapolis Journal es- •
pecially quotes and approves of this ut
terance. The difference between the'
speaker and Mr. Keed is that the i
speaker was frank and Mr. Reed was
not. The .Republican party never yet
had an opportunity to change the tariff
but what it exercised it to the fullest.
It is urged that Mr. Cleveland should
come out and make a speech for Mr.
Hill because Tammany supported him
so loyally in '92. This claim of Tam
many recalls the little meeting which
Mr. Cleveland held with Slieeliau,
Croker and Murphy when Tammany
was growling and what it would do was
a matter of doubt, and talk of bolting
was in the air unless Mr. Cleveland ac
ceded to certain demands for patronage, j
Mr. Cleveland' informed the bosses that I
he had not yet written his letter of ac
ceptance, and if Tammany. took that at
titude he would write a letter declining
the nomination and plainly stating the
reasons for it. Mr. Cleveland's memory
is probably a trifle ' more tenacious than ]
is that of the Tammany chieftains. - j
"1 fail to see where any special
credit attaches to Auditor Biermanu iv
reference to his action in regard to the
certifying of these Great Northern
lauds, nor for any claim to extreme vir
tue on his part iv the matter, for iv his
refusal, if it is as he states, he only per
formed his sworn duty."
The above will be iiuniediatnl-y recog
nized as the chaste language of the in
comparable Bob Dunn, after it nas
passed through the purifying process of
translation at the hands of the Pioneer
Press. The last clause of this wonder
fully constructed sentence contains
something that must have startled Bob
when lie said it. It was the truth. "He
only performed his sworn duty."
That is just what the public is wait
ing for Crov. Nelson to do. Will he
"wait till the campaign is over?"
That staunch old Democratic stand
ard-t'earer of the Minnesota valley, the
Mankato Review, has this to say, and i/

There was a notable increase in tne
size of the audience at the Grand opera
iwtiso last night, when the second per*
formance of "'l'he Power ot Gold" for
ilie benelit of the unemployed was
[riven. The pleasant weather was the
cause of the large attendance, and if it
remains propitious, there is no doubt
that the theater will be packed this aft
ernoon and evening. The relief com
mittee expects to hear from the fire de
partment today, ihe members of which
received the same number of tickets to
dispose of as tliu police did. The latter
»old their 400 and have returned the
proceeds, and it is believed that the
lireiuen have met with equal success.
The final matinee today and the last

SEVENTH WARD I'.VHUAMENT
Republicans Up x'tiera . Hold a
. - I'ropep Meeting.
A gentlemen's meeting and no cham
pagne!. An assemblage of the Seventh
.Ward Republican League club and
nothing but beer! Of course, it was a
failure. It couldn't be otherwise. There
was no enthusiasm. But no gentleman
—in England— allows himself t« bocoine
enthusiastic. There was no crowd. But
crowds aid the essence of vulgarity. , A
small meeting is a select meeting; and,
besides, proper class distinctions were
carefully observed. Arguments were
absent and oratory was unheard. ' But a
Gentleman's political . affiliations < are.
sou know, the result of his family tra
ditions, his connections, and— and so on.
I SeTttnl day* agu a dUU'ict messenger
boy distributed cirtain invitations,
somely engraved.aiinmiucliig that "gen
tlemen init-resttd in the success of the
Republican party would assemble at the
Aberdeen Friday eve.ilng, and proceed
thence to apartments upon Wnstern
avenue,' where those desiring would
have an" opportunity to subscribe
funds and to encourage by their pres
ence certain individuals of some sort of
club, whom it would be desirable to
patronize." Last evening, accordingly,
after a B. and S. mid .i cigar at the ho
tel, carriages received gome nineteen
gentlemen in evening dress and each
wearing a Marechai Niel rose,
and deposited them under the
awning leadiug to the entrance of
Lovering's hall, on Western ave
nue. They wtre received by servants
dressed in fancy zouave costumes, and
escorted to the front of the hall within
a space separated from the remainder
by a rich velvet ribbon. They then
seated themselves upon heavy oaken
benches (there are no chairs for mem
bers of parliament), and without, of
course, removing their silk hats, waited
calmly for Mr. Ozmun to state that,
"while gentlemen might naturally have
preferences, hi» considered Mr. Knutson
— that is. lie meant Mr. Nelson— from
what he had been able to learn, a must
respectable person, and worthy of Ken
tlemen's patronage. A servant wculd
uow.htt added, pass subscription blanks.
One of the zouaves took a silver salver
and made the rounds. Just then the
Eighth Ward League club arrived,
twelve strong, seven holding tomato
cans tied to laths and filled with blazing
tar. Leaving these "torches" outside,
tney were directed by the zouaves to
take seats behind the ribbon. None of
the club turned around on their en
trance. I. L. Mahau, temporary chair
man—'.'speaker," as he expressed it
afterwards— bowed slightly. The Eighth
warders were uncomfortable. They
were vulgar, common creatures, and
they knew it. Secretary Colburn looked
depressed, but Sergeant at Arms Gad
boys became reckless and defiant, and
said he was going out for a can of
be-er. With several dimes in bis
hat he sneaked across to Rieiz
ke's drug store and procured
a trallou or two of "root beer." The
boys from Rice street didn't like it, but
turning their backs on tiie "meeting,"
uiey got out their pipes, crossed their
legs, drank "root beer." and reveled in
their disgusting vulgarity. Mr. Elmund
told of ouch meeting a Swedish count,
and was greeted by "Hoar l hoar:" from
several gentlemen who read English
papers. Gates A. Johnson apologized
for wearing a >- b lly-cocK" hat. No re

about the absence of champagne. He
