Judges, Please 1 elephone the >oia! i'.e£. titration 'iouight. This is the last day of registration, and the thousands of voters who have failed to enroll their names have this last opportunity to redeem the credit of the city by swelling the schedules to their legitimate proportions. St. Paul undoubtedly has more voters now than it had last spring, and the only con ceivable cause for the falling off the past two days of registration is lack of interest.' Which side lacks the interest? Democratic wards have done better than Kepublican wards. The Seventh ward was on last Saturday 800 names short of the enrollment of the third day of last spring. However, it is the duty every Democrat owes to his citizenship to see that no Democrat fails to register. Unless extraordinary effort is put forth a good many voters will find themselves disfranchised on ejection day. GOOD CliKKtv SKItVICE. Mr. Boyesen Wants O'Connor's Help Retained. Alt E. Boyesen look occasion to speak of Hie conduct of the clerk of courts' office under the present administration the other day. He spoke in the highest terms of the manner In which business was done there under Mr. O'Connor and his chief deputy, J. M. Redding. "A lawyer," said he, "can go into that office and pet just what he wants at any time, and receive courteous atten tion from Mr. Redding and from all the young men in the office. 1 don't care so much tor Mr. O'Connor. He is to leave the office, anyway, but 1 do not want to see all those young fellows, including Redding, turned out, and they will of course all have to go if Mr. Rogers is elected. That is understood. The clerk of courts' office is conducted splen didly, in a manner to please all the members of the bar." At a regular meeting of the Eighth Ward Independent club held Monday evening, Oct. '20, the folio wing-named gentlemen were unanimously indorsed: Congressman, E. J. Darragh; state senator, Cary 1.

First and Ninth Wards Hold a Rousing Rally on Mis sissippi Street. A MONSTER MASS MEETING. Such Will Be the Democratic Event at the Auditorium Saturday. INDEPENDENTS WITH US. Many Glorious Meetings Last . Night—Democracy Carry ing by Storm. A large gathering of Democrats from the First and Ninth wards held a rous ing meeting last night on the border line of the two wards, at the corner of Mississippi and Nash streets. Dr. E. W. Buckley presided, and introduced speaker after speaker, who defined Democratic doctrine and commented on the excellence of the party standard bearers until alter 11 o'clock. The hall, a large one. was packed, and there was no diminution 111 the size of the gather ing or its enthusiasm until the Inst soeacer had concluded. It was agreed on all hands that not a better ward meeting has been held in the city. F. L. McGhee, hue of the brightest orators in the city and a recent convert to the cause of the common people, de livered an earnest address, in which be applied to tae majority of the people to preserve their own rights and promote their own interests by voting the Dem ocratic ticket and setting their face against the party that fathers and pro motes trusts and interests opposed to good government and the rights of the great majority. His speech was illus trated by incidents whicii brought out cheers and applause. One of his apt illustrations went to prove that Ohio is the home of the apostle of protection and of the socialist, and that MeKiniey, being the father of protection, must be the father of Coxey and his army of ho boes. He also earnestly advocated the election of the Democratic county ticket. Pierce Butler made one of the best speeches of the campaign, in which he asked the voters to give careful consid eration when they come to exercise the highest right of citizenship Tuesday next, and to cast their votes for the parly that befriends them most. E. J. Darragh made a strong speech.it beiug one of four delivered by him last night. He was given a tine reception, and made an excellent impression. He demonstrated that he is not only the boy orator of the Northwest, but is a thoughtful, brilliant man. who is well posted in the political economy of the country. David F. Peebles delivered what may be termed an excellent oration on the duty of a thoughtful consideration of the privileges of the American citizen. William A. Van Slyke was called upon for a speech, but said that being within a few doors of his home, and known to every one present, he would say no more thau to ask them to vote for all the candidates on the excellent Democratic ticket. Dr. E. 11. Whitcomb made a sensible speech. He alluded to the fact that he had tried to do his duty as coroner for the past two years. He had tried to save expense to the county by holding no more inquests than were neaessary, and when ' they were held they were searching inquiries, with a view of placing the blame where it belonged. He called the Democratic ticket a roll of honor, and asked that ' all ' strive to elect every man thereon. John S. Grade gave the audience a brief, business-like talk, and urged the necessity of registration and voting. O. 11. O'Neill talked at some length on general topics.. Dr. Buckley dismissed the audience after suggesting the im portance of registration today. The elecric berth reading lamp is an exclusive feature of "The Milwaukee." The evening train for Chicago is lighted by electricity throughout. '. BUTLER WARMED UP. Several Stirring Speeches in the Eighth. The Eighth ward Democracy held an excellent meeting last night at the cor ner of Front and Chatsworth streets. William Foelson presided, and inhis earnsst way helped to stir up enthusi asm. Capt. Ritt was the first speaker on the programme, and his speech iv German was impressive and entertaining. Judge Frank Ford spoke on the tariff and general topics, as well as county in terests. Pierce Butler seemingly has warmed un to the subject, and delivered an ad dress on the duties of patriotism and the privileges of Americans. W. A. Van Slyke talked on local matters and the work he helped in to build up Como park. John S. Grode made a speech on general topics and showed his con stituents that it is his desire to do right by all the people when elected county treasurer. Pat McUugh, the gentleman who has so long presided with ability over the Eighth Ward Banner club, spoke at some length. He is a convincing speaker, ana he pointed out the ' advan tages to be gained by electing the Demo cratic candidates for the legislature. His speech was well received. E. C. Ives and S. J. Donnelly also made soeeches. The former canvassed the field of county affairs, and the latter followed in much the same strain, illus trating his points with humorous inci dents. C. W. NEY WAXfcil) ELOQUENT. Sixth Ward Treated to a Feast of Oratory. ; The Sixth ward Democrats are grow ing enthusiastic to a greater degree every day. They held a good meeting last night at the comer of Ohio and George streets. Hans Peterson pre sided. Joseph Bergfield opened the speaking with an effort that . was hu morous, and impressed the audience witli the desire to place the affairs of the country in the hands of the faithful stewards, the Democrats. The oration of the evening was deliv ered by that Cicero of the city. C. W. Ney. This gentleman Is logical, force ful and pleasing in his address, and has a vase ability in presenting his views.

AT lill'ilcH CANADA. A Rousing; Meeting i lines With a Duck Bouillon. When the news comes in from Little Canada on the 6th of November next it will bo glorious lor the Democratic ticket if the meeting of last night at that locality can be taken for a criterion, lt was a rousing one, and was constituted largely of the French citizens who reside in that vicinity, lt was also a sort of po litical feast from the fact that Farmer Melrose furnished free one of his most excellent bouillons for which he is now so famous, and which cut such a figure at the late Democratic convention. Farmer Melrose, of the Farmers' Rest, was really in his glory last evening be tween the politicians and his favorite dish. The meeting was called to order by Joe Pepin, who gracefully and cleverly introduced the speakers and candidates lo the 200 people assembled, and never mace a break. The first speaker was Matt Bantz, who went over the tariff situation in a clear aud masterly manner, and then took up the couuty ticket, lie spoke eloquently about E. J. Darragh, aud made a personal appeal to those present to support him aud the entire ticket. lie uext paid a high compliment to honest Anton Mieseu, and then asked for the suffrage of all present for William Koch, the candidate for register of deeds, ou the ground ihat he is a workiugman and from the ranks of the people, having won his way to the top of his profession through his own unaided efforts. Mr. Bantz also spoke on Judge Olivier, John Willis and sev eral other candidates on the licket.espe cially James A. F. Dowlau. the candi date tor abstract clerk. Frank Battley was then culled for and took up the balance of the ticket, and in his usual vigorous style assured its election. He took up the records of Anton Meisen, M. F. Kain and William Koch, and made comparisons with the candidates on the Republican ticket that were so well received as to leave no room for doubt as to whom the peo ple of Little Canada would vote for. William Koch was then introduced, and after a few introductory remarks paid a tribute to David B. Haniia. the candidate tor county commissioner from this district. He closed with the statement that "no abler, more honest or better man could be sent to represent the people than David Hanna." Anton Meisen made a few remarks, aud asked all to be sure aud register on the morning of election, as the polls would open one hour earlier for this purpose. M. J. Costelio was the last speaker, and his was the brilliant effjrt of the evening. He took up the national question briefly, and then told that there was one man on the ticket for whom he wished to speak whose name had not yet been mentioned. It was that old war horse of Democracy in the slate of Minnesota, Michael Doran, and at the mention of . his name the people went wild with en thusiasm. The people of Little Canada could not do themselves more honor than send Michael Doran to the legis lature, and they would be represented as no man had ever represented them before. He then spoke on Con gressman Darragh, and made some witty allusions to the correspondence between him and Col. Kiefer. He complimented his friend "Billy" Koch as a co-worker in the newspaper busi ness, and very kindly stated that no one could vote for a better man. He then defined his own Democracy, and his talk was nut only the brilliant effort of the evening, but carried with it con siderable amusement, which thoroughly enlivened the crowd. As soon as tile meeting adjourned the banquet board was spread, and many a voter attested his high appreciation of FarmerMelrose's elegant duck bouillon. ■ "The Milwaukee" runs the latest private compartment cars, library, buf fet, smoking cars and standard palace sleeping cars. Dining car service un excelled. LEW WILKES ON THE STUMP. Makes a Rattling Speech in tbe Filth. In this community no view ofa public question is so satisfactory as the busi ness man's view; and it was "as a busi ness man" that Lew Wilkes delivered a most energetic and striking address last evening at 540 West Seveuth street, to the Fifth ward Democrats. "Demo cratic club" was to be the conclusion of the last sentence, but the club itself, large as it is, was quite lost in the midst of its friends and sympathizers. Mr. Wilkes asked who deserved the most votes. Van Slyke, who had given St. ■, Paul his life work and his money, or Rogers, who had abandoned us when we most needed our wealthy citizens? Kain, the business man's choice, or Sul livan, the self-seeking favorite of cor porations and the dissembling foe of labor? Butler, who had under suclr difficulties succeeded iv convicting the bank robbers, or Chapin, a mere experi ment? Grode deserved election for his many years of faithful service in the treasurer's office, with the duties of which no one is more familiar. The previous experience - as sheriff of Anton Mieseu, the intelligence and well-known character of William Koch were not to be overlooked. As for Ed Whitcomb, every one would vote for him any way. The speaker indicated how much benefit the ward and the city would derive from the character and diplomatic intelligence of George Red iugton. These practical points met a most responsive reception. Judge Alfred S.Hall, in an applauded speech, characterized the Populists as a party of disappointed men seeking, re gardless of principle, to regain their lost influence — men whose theories would disorganize society. He spoke of the change from when all were fairly well off to this era of millionaires and slums— a change which took place un der Republican laws— and of the income tax.by whichever $50,000,000 of taxation, will be shifted from the poor to the rich. Capt. M. J. O'Connor was called from among the audience to say something about the ticket, and was heartily wel comed. At the conclusion of the club meeting the various precinct committeemen of the ward, representing all the various organizations, united in arrangements for Saturday night's procession. - Hotel men should atteud the auction sale of the Elegant Carpets of the C.

Kelly, Candidate "for the legislature, was the cause of in cessant approval by the audience. William I'itt Murray said he hadn't read the MeKiniey or Wilson bills as an entirety. .'.He believed with Gen. Hancock, who stated t at the question of tariff was purely local. He paid Ids respects to Sam Lowenstein by stating he was better making cigars loan talk ing politics. Mr. Murray's remarks were principally for P. li. Kelly, whose good qualities, honesty and - man hood lie depicted at length.- John Cavauagh, thi floral young orator, followed with the best speech of the evening, in which he advised all to attend to registering — today being the last chance. The workings of the in famous MeKiniey and Sherman laws had resulted in causing a visionary fanatic like Coxey to set 100,000 men ou the tramp. The act of the Democratic convention in nominating Judges Brill and Kelly conclusively proved that the party may, be safely entrusted to power. He asked all to vote the Democratic ticket straight, for if tiiey do victory — certain and resplendent victory— will uerch on the banner of eacii Democratic Candida te. Oen. R. W. Johnson was in a happy vein, and told several very amusing stories, all at the expense of the Repub licans. He pleaded for the support of the entire Democratic ticket and ins friend, P. H. Kelly, and when he con cluded was warmly applauded. Dr. E. H. Whitcomb, candidate for coroner; James U. Middlelon, H. F. Weasel, M. F. Kane, candidate for aud itor; P. D. Scannell and W. Codden all made h:ippy responses to the calls of the audience, and each spoke earnestly lor the suffrages of the Democratic ticket. ' Celebrated "Plymouth" $3 Pants Audslosuits.

The Third Ward Independent club held its most successful rally of the campaign last night. The hall was' crowded to the doors, and the speakers all acquitted themselves most credita bly. The feature of the evening was the eloquent effort of Ed Darragh. He was cheered to the echo, and at times had to stop sneaking on account of the applause. Ed J. Schurmeier spoke for some time, and in the course of his re*;; marks said that he was iv favor of compulsory arbitration, and would use his best efforts in passing a law to that effect if elected. He also said he would work for the immedi ate erection of the new capitol building, and that he was opposed to trusts, com bines and prison labor, and that he would try and abolish all . these. N. S. ' Beardsley aud Benn Davis also ad dressed the club. A social session fol lowed the speaking, refreshments were served, aud the audience was enter tained with songs and recitations. The next aud last rally of the club will occur next Friday evening, Nov. 2. The club will hold a meeting on Thursday even ' ing, at which they will indorse their candidates. By a typographical error in Sunday's paper the Sixtn Ward Flats Democratic club was scheduled to meet at the cor ner of Fillmore and South Robert on Tuesday evening, instead of Thursday evening, the correct date. As a result nearly 100 Democrats assembled at the appointed place last eveniug, only to be disappointed. The meeting will take place Thursday evening. Mrs. Mary E. Freeby Long Beach, Cal.

"..• "My wife sprained her ankle ten years ago. lt apparently got well to all , outward appearance, it being a little larger than the other ankle, but in a few months three sores broke out on her knee, her ankle and foot. They became Large Running Ulcers, \'A and the doctor could not do anything; to help.' 1 then took my wife to the hospital and the surgeons scraped all the flesh round .the sores, and said they would get well. They almost healed up. but , soon two little specks came, one on each side of the first sore. The doctors said they would not amount to anything, but in a few days they turned out to be more ulcers, and in a short time they had eaten into the original sore and made a large wound.

Kiefer's Affidavit Contradict ■ ed by the Records of the Courts. IS NESS THE MAN JOHNSON? No Nes N. Johnson Found in the Directories of Those Years. The readers of the Globe will re member that a few days ago Nels J. Ness, one of the candidates for county commissioner upon the . Republican ■ticket, appeared before the district court ot this county and asked to bo admitted to full citizenship, alleging that he had taken out his lirst papers and declared his intention to become a citizen in 1880. In support of this claim Ness produced the lirst papers issued to one Nes N. Johnson, and asserted that he at that lime was known as Nes N. Johnson. His statement was sup ported by an affidavit from A. R. Keifer, now a candidate for re-election to con gress, who at that time was clerk of the district court, stating that, "as such clerk of said court, he issued to oue Nels J. Ness, under the name of Nes N. Johnson, his first citizenship papers." An examination of the records of the district court, however, shows that Mr. Keifer did not issue any such papers, but that the first citizenship papers of Nes N. Johnson— whoever he maybe — were issued by James O'Brien, then deputy clerk. Mr. O'Brien yesterday made the following affidavit: State of Minnesota. County of Ram sey, ss.— James O'Brien, being duly sworn, says that during the year 1880 and for a long time prior thereto he was deputy clerk of tile district court of the Second judicial district of the statu of Minnesota, in and for the county of Ramsey. That he has this day inspected the records of said district court, par ticularly that portion of said record re lating to the issuance of first papers to 'aliens, and that the first citizenship -papers issued to Nes N. Johnson, and ■ being the same papers referred to in Hie affidavit of A. R. Kiefer in the matter of the application of Nels J. Ness to be admitted to fuil citizen ship, and that said lirst pavers ] so issued to Nes N. Johnson are entirely in tha handwriting of this deponent, "•and that the same were personally issued to the person calling himself Nes N. .Johnson by this deponent, as appears from said records. That it fur ther appears from said records that A. R. Kieter did not issue said papers, but that the same were, as aforesaid, made out, issued and delivered 'by this de ponent at the request of S. Dee Davis, as further appears from a notation on said record. That •as to whether said -Nes N. Johnson is the same person now known as Nels J. Ness this deponent has no information or belief. Subscribed and sworn to before me this 30tu day of October, A. D. 1804. James O'Biukn. William C. Read, Notary Public, Ramsey County, Minn. The first inquiry into this matter should be "How did Col. Kiefer come to make an affidavit such as he did?" The records show that the papers were issued by Mr. O'Brien, yet Col. Kiefer in his affidavit states that he himself issued them. The Globe regrets that theexigenciesof the campaign have pro duced such recklessness in Col. Kiefer. His long period of office hold ing, as well as the numerous campaigns he has gone through when he was not elected, should have taught him more caution. It is scarcely possible that Col. Kiefer is willing to say that he has a personal knowledge as to the circumstances at tending the issuance of Mr. Johnson's 'first papers, because it must be con ceded that in 1880 Mr. Johnson was a very insignificant person, having at that time only been in this country two years and not long enough to have definitely settled under what name he wished to be known. But a graver question still is whether or not there is any foundation at all for believing that the gentleman now known as Nels J. Ness ever masquer aded under the name of Nes N.John son. An examination of the city direc tory for the years 1878. 1879. 1880 and 1881 fails to show the residence in this city of auy such man as Nes N. John son, while the directory of 1883 shows "Nelse G. Ness, stonemason, res. Her man bet. Kate & Cory, 6th ward." It is proper to injuire. therefore, if from 1878 until 1882 Mr. Ness was a resi dent ot this city under the name of Johnson, why his name does not appear in the directory, and if somewhere about that time he changed his name to IN els 3, Ness why it appears in the city diretory as Nelse G. Ness. Was Mr. Johnson shedding his name grad ually, or hail he formed ~ the habit of changing his name so completely that he became restive ane uneasy if known by the same name for any length of time?. The public should receive some assurances from Mr. Ness that he is cured of this habit, as, in case of his election, it might cause grave complications to have Smith or Brown or Jones voting in place of Mr. Ness. At present it looks as though Nes N. Johnson were some transient voter. \ It is further significant, as appears from the affidavit of Mr. O'Brien, that the papers issued to Nets N. Johnson were issued upon the request of S. Lee Davis, a well-known Democrat of this city. Mr. Ness, therefore, should have gone further in his explanation, and told how he came to change bis party with ills name. »* YOUNG AIKN WASTED.
