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.

First and Ninth Wards Hold
a Rousing Rally on Mis
sissippi Street.
Such Will Be the Democratic
Event at the Auditorium
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
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
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.

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
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
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.

Makes a Rattling Speech in tbe
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

respects to Sam Lowenstein by stating
he was better making cigars loan talk

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

all acquitted themselves most credita

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

would try and abolish all . these. N. S. '

He Did Not Issue First Papers
to Nelse J. Ness, Alias
Kiefer's Affidavit Contradict
■ ed by the Records of
the Courts.
No Nes N. Johnson Found in
the Directories of Those
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
\ 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.
