The Pioneer Press' defense of Gov.

silence that fairly rent the veil of the
Republican sanctum sauclorum in the
Eudicott block.
ALTf.Ki.n made a speech in Illiuois

The Princeton Union. Bob Dunn's

that "Bob Dunn is making votes every

A Minneapolis paper claims to have
proof that the Republican stale central
committee save Joe Jepson $1,000 to
carry his faction of the Democratic
party over to Nelson. This is probably
the higiiest price ever paid for one vote.

Ax important bulletin was wired

Wii.vT f<;M does the Minneapolis
Tribune iiooc to catch with its tables of

above one dollar, and in Democratic

is foul enoaen to really believe that
wheat prices and tariffs and admtnis-
Iretiotis have any connection?
1 The Journal says that a governor
who would not consult his legal adviser
vonlii be desenredly censured. Did the
governor consult the attorney general
when he struck out of the deed to the
Little Falls company the lauds the
Great Northern had indicated to him it
wished held out for itself? And if he
didn't (and he didn't) will the Journal
please censure him?
A goykjinoh who would not consult
his letral adviser should be ceusured
says the Journal. And if he does con
suit him and he tells the governor that
the act is constitutional, but an outrage,
as was the case in the Uamsey county
fee bill, is he not censurable for inflict
ing the outrage on the people of the
county? But the Journal is not censur
ing anybody, not even Democrats just
now. It is begging and cajoling and
bugabooing the Democrats to vote for
this same governor.

''IS THY SERVANT A DOG?"
The Republicans insist that the Demo
crats are chumps, ignoramuses, incom
petents and fools. For thirty years
they have scoured the vocabularies of
the irtwometi to find epithets lltittft
to express their contempt for us. We
are'iiraitors always, and knaves where
we are not fools. With what relish
thoy have rolled under their tongues
the epigram of Horace Grealey, thai "1
have not said that all Democrats are
hofSe thieves, bat I do say that all horse
thieves are Democrats."
If we can believe the talk we hear,
the statements of some Democrats,
themselves and the rumors of the talk
or others, we admit with shame and
chagrin that there are some Democrats
who are chumps and ignoramuses and
incompetents and fools. They are
cuckolds without the self-respect of man
hoot!. They are curs who lick the hand
that cuff* them. They are too green to
be left in a 'pasture with cows. They
are too simple-minded to be left out of
leading strings. They ought to be in
the institution for the feeble-minded
instead of exercising the right of
suffrage.
Who are they? They are these idiots
who have let this rot in the Republican
papers about the disasters of Populism
make them believe that they must vote
for Nelson to save society and govern
ment and business from instant rum.
They are the bullheads who swallow
any bait that tuny cover the hook. They
are so thick-witted that they can't see
that what the Republicans are really
afraid of is the election of the Demo
cratic ticket, and that they have raised
this dust about Owen merely to stam
pede the sheepheads among the Demo
crats, hoping to catch enough of them
to carry their ticket iv by the skin of its
teeth.
Then there are the other Democrats,
calling themselves such, but knowing
of or caring as little for Democracy as
they do for the man in the moon, the
class we described last Saturday, who
want to see Nelson elected because
there is more money in a Republican
administration for them than there
would be in a Democratic one. They
are the thirty-pieces-of-silver Demo
crats whose itciimK palms determine
their partisan affiliations, and who
would as readily be Republicans or
Populists or Prohibitionists as Demo
crats if there wns "anything in it" for
them. These fellows are shakinc their
heads and darkly hinting Vvxt Becker
can't t>d elected, and it wouKl be awful
to have Owen elected. They don't
waut Becker elected, and, if Owen
weren't in the field, would do as they
did iv '9J, tride and dicker to elect the
Republican.
And the pity, the shame of it is that
there are Democrats who actually in
tend to desert their party and its ticket
and vote for the Republicans; tool*
footed with folly. Haven't they any
sense of self-respect left? Can they
vote for a man who, in his long cam -
paign, has denounced Democrats as a
pack of ineapables. unfit to run a gov
ernment? Who has fought the honest
efforts of tua only Democratic state offi
cial we have to keep for Ihe state what
belongs to it, in the interests of a cor
poration? Who has uointea to the pauic
or "Jo, that child of Republican misrule,
as the sole offspring of a fear ot Demo
cratic rule?
When, until now their dire danger—
their fear of the coming defeat— drives
them to their knees, did we ever gel
anything but kicks and culls and abuse
without stint Iroin tiiese Republicans?
Didn't Senator Davis tell an audience a
few years a*o that he would not vote
for the Apostle Paul if he weie on the
Democratic ticket, and that he would
rather vote for the dcvii if on the Re
publican ticket? And is there now a
Democrat with so little ot manly re
spect and resentment that he will Kive
these maiigners of himself and his
party his vote to save them from a
richly merited defeat? "Is thy ser vain
a dog that he would do this tiling?"
CARRY OX THE BATTLE.
The gallant little leader of the reform
forces of the Third district was so se
riously injured by his fall through the
trestle at Hastings that the hope at first
entertained that he might be out in a
couple of days must be dismissed, and
in its place is the certainty that he will
not be aole to leave his bed before the
battle of ballots is fought next Tuesday.
When the leader on the battlefield
falls the army is dismayed because the
directing head is gone, and confusion
takes the place of orderly movement,
but in this battle of reform every man
is a leader with his work marked out
plain before him. He knows what is
wanted and how to do it. He does not
obey orders or wait for them. He con
sults his judgment, decides his course
and acts. The chieftain can at best but
encourage, inspire, advise.
The keenest regret that makes the
impatient leader of the Third district
reformers toss on his bed is the feeling
that lie must disappoint so many in
their exDectation of seeing and hearing
him, and himself in his desire to meet
them and confer with them. The
bruises that hurt his bod\ are more
easily endured than is the confinement
that keeps Dim out of the thick of the
fight in these closing days of the cou
test.
But all the more it devolves on every
Democrat and every lover of liberty of
men lo trade to be active and vigilant.
All the more is it his duty to do more
than lie would have done; to get to the
noils himself; to get the laggards there.
thai the great cause wa are all engaged
In may not suffer loss by the disable
ment ot Mr. Hall. Let each man do a
little more, that their gallant leader can
do nothing, and on next Tuesday let the
taunt of the Republicans that the Dem
ocrats and tariff reformers of the Third
district, did not know their own minds
wben four and again two years ago
they decided that the robbery of the
mass for the benefit of the few shall
cease, be flung back in their teeth.
SKAFFAREN ON THE SITUA-
TION.
The worst fears of the Republican
managers are at last realized, and the
most horrible thing has happened.
SkatTareu has bolted. In the current
issue the following language appears:
"Mr. Bob Dunn is the »varste buse'
(whatever that may be) in the pine land
ring, and yet some people claim that he
will get the most votes of all the Re
publican candidates. How this is the
election will show."
Concerning the general result Skaf
taren is uncerrain. It seems to have
been struck with something—probably
a new rule of the dairy commission, or
some such dangerous weapon— is i
dazed. It says: "It is always hard to
forecast the result of an election., I This
time it is impossible." But in order that
it may still hold its standing, and to
show the faith that is in it, the following

FOR K!Ctl.VKI>S(>.\'S KYK.
The attention of Harris Richard
son, secretary of the Republican state
central committee and attorney of the
pine land investigating committee. Is
called to the following provision of the
constitution of Minnesota:
"The principal of all funds arlsin c
from sales ur other disposition of lands
or other properly granted or entrusted
to this state in each township for edu
cational purposes, shall forever be pre
served and undlminished."
Mr. Richardson has turned into the
state treasury a little over half the
amount collected from the irenticinen
who cut more timber than Surveyor
General Brown reported. It Is to be
hoped that Mr. Richardson is not too
busy in politics to give this matter his
attention. The people do not take
kindly to Gov. Nelson's suggestion
about "waiting until the campaign is
over."

THAT F^irt BILL.
Gen. Sanborn's Defense Is Severe-
ly Criticised.
To the Editor of the Globe.
As a citizen and a taxpayer of the
city of SL Paul and county of Kamsey.
I claim tiie privilege of criticisms the
pretended defense of John B. Sanboni
published in the Pioneer of Sunday.
Knowing something about the repeal of
the salary and the establishing of the
fee bill of the county officers, the writer
desires to say that the peculiar ex
planation of John B. Sanborn is illogical
and not supported by the facts. Be
fore the meeting of the legislature it
was a foregone conclusion that the
salary bill would be repealed and tlie
fee bill re established, for which pur
pose $3,000 was raised by the parties in
terested aud placed where it would do
the most good. By resolution of the
legislature no new bill could be intro
duced arter the Nth day of March,
unless by consent of the governor.
The matter was delayed until the
18th of April, a short time only before
the adjournment would take place.and a
skillful lobbyist was employed to push
the matter through. The four sena
tors who have already been mentioned
were a unit in pressing the repeal of the
salary bill. It consisted of only seven
lines, was passed under the suspension
of the rules, without argument, and was
then hurried to the hnim. where only
seven votes were cast against it. It
was passed by virtue of the common
idea that it was a local bill, aud the
other delegations did not care anything
about it. If it had taken its turn it
would never have been reached, it being
at tiie foot of the calendar. It was
taken from the bottom of at
least 100 others and passed, as in
tiie senate, under the suspension
of the rules. By its passage
not less than from fifty to sixty thou
?and dollars was diverted from the
county treasury and left to flow into
the pockets of the various county of
ficials. John B. Satiborn argues that
ihe matter does not concern anybody
but litigants, of which lie says there are
about three thousand, and they would
have no right to control the hundred
and fifty thousand that populate the
city of St. Paul. This does not bear the
elements of common sense. Under the
-alary bill ?(iO,OOO would go to the
credit of the taxpayer, instead of en
riching the finances of the comity of
ficials. If only the litigants are affect
ed, the tees they are compelled to
pay by force of law "to the
clerk of the courts should be re
duced. Under tiie present system $4.50
is demanded for entering every judg
ntect in which an appearance has b, jen
made, making the sum of 813.500 for
only one item of business ttiat flows
into the office or clerk of the eon its. If
the county does not get the cxc.-si after
the clerk receives a fair salary Uil* fees
should be reduced in proportion, and
the same rule should be "adopted in the
offices of the sheriff and register of
needs. John B. Sanborn says lie urged
the governor to sign the bill. If that is
the case, he must have felt a greater
interest than a l«Kislator would be sup
posed to feel. The governor must have
had some doubt as to the expediency of
affixing his signature.aud In trivinsr way
to Ute siren voice of John B. Sanborn,
backed by the other senators, was guilty
oi a reprehensible net, tor which no
reasonable excuse could be offered.
♦lUNIUS,
WILLIS A WINNER.
The Enthusiastic Candidature of
Judge Willis for fc up.-tine
Judge.
John W. Willis, the Democratic and
People's party candidate fur associate
j justice of the supreme court, is a judge
of the district court at St. Paul, and
fully qualified for a place on the bench
'of the highest court of th« state, says
the Minneapolis Penny Press.
Judge Willis was born in St. Paul in
1834. He passed through the public
schools and graduated from the high
school with honor. He pursued spe
cial studies at the University of Min
nesota and at Macalester college, and
entering Dartmouth college as a soph
i emore was graduated in 1887. later
receiving the degree of A. M.. ac
corded only to graduates of special
diligence and attainments. He studied
law in St. Paul, and was admitted
on examination in 187 J. He built,
up a large practice, served as
a member of tne local board of educa
catiou for several years, and in 1883 se
cured the unanimous nomination at the
Democratic state convention for attor
ney general of Minnesota. In 1838 he
was appointed by Gov. .McUHI on the
state board of corrections and charities.
In 1892 Mr. Willis was elected a judge
of the district court. Last July he se
cured the enthusiastic nomination of the
People's party for associate justice of
the supreme court, and in September he
secured by acclamation the Democratic
nomination. He is a man of fine pres
ence, an able and impartial judge, an
accomplished scholar and orator. His'
sympathies are with the people in their
Worts to better their condition, and his
relations to school and charitable boards
have given him practical views as to
what is needed in the way ot enlarged
opportunities and larger rewards for
labor. As a lawyer and judge his rec
ord is first-class, and if elected he will
worthily occupy a place upon tin bench
of the supreme court.

THK TIN FRAUD.
McKlnley's Perennial Lie Is Given
n Very Hard Knock.
To the Editor of the Globe.
What caused the tin manufactures
to clo-ie? Mr. McKinley goes a-shoutlng
around the country that it was the Wil
son bill.
Let us look at the matter squarely
aud fairly and judge for ourselves. The
McKinley law reads this way: On ana
after July 1, 1893, there shall* be a tariff
on pig tin of four cents a pouud (SBO a
ton) that shall remain in vogue until
1895. Then If we have proven that we
have taken 5,000 tons out of the mines
of the United States, then by order of
the president it shall be made free. We
experimented on California tin for
six weeks, and there was so much
mica in it that we could not possi
bly market it, as the mica came off
and left it like small-pox, exposing the
sheets of iron or oteei. which rusted
when exposed to the air,aud there could
not be a particle of it used and never
was, only for political capital. Pig tin,
up to this McKinley act of July 1, 1893,
had always been admitted to this coun
try free of duty, and up to that date,
July 1, 1893, ail tin manufacturers had
been running to their full capacity in
this country, and the tin plate, up to
that date, was selling on the market at
$5.50 per box of 14x20 square. Six
months after the same goods tiad ad
vaueed to $7.20 per box, and all but
two of the manufactories were closed,
and those have since closed under the
4-ceut burden, and while tnere is some
tin in the Biack Hills, there is far more
mica in that than the California mines.
Now. every pound of tin plate that has
been manufactured here and sold in our
market, we have always had to go to
the Straits, Wales or New Zealand, and
buy the pig in the same mines that did
our Welsh competitors; and since July
1, 1893, under the MeKinley act, we
have had to pay $30 a ton for it more
than did they. Is it any wonder, then,
the factories here closed? And now
I will say that the Wilson
bill has again placed the pig
tin on the free lisr, and has a protection
of one and one-tenth cents a pound on
the tin plate. Aud siuce it has become
a law there are nine new tin manufac
tories under process of erection, and
many of the old mills are enlarging
their plants, which will give employ
ment to more of the many thousands of
men which Mr. McKinley has had the
cheek to blame Democracy for their
idleness. Is there a man so party-blind
that would believe you on your tin
statement. Mr. McKinley? You should
have interested yourself less in tin and
more in brass, as you have enough in
your cheek to fill the requisitions of the
United States when you make such
faise statements. 11. G. B

DOESN'T TKIiL'fHG TROTH.
A, Farmer Calls the Pioneer Press
Down.
To the Editor of the Globe.
In this morning's Pioneer Press is an
article deploring the sad condition of
wool. It states that under the McKin
ley law wool was worth from 16 to IS
cents per pound, but now it is only
worth 7 to 8 cents per pound. As a
sheep raiser, I think I can dispute the
statement. Before the McKiuley bill
became a law wool was ;worth from 20
to 22 cents per pound. Six months after
the bill became a law wool dropped to
18 to 19 cents per pound. One year and
a haif after it dropped to 16 to IS cents
per pound. Two years and a half after
it dropped to 13 to 14 cents per pound.
Three years and a half after it dropped
to 11 to la cents per pound.
The Press says that sheep dropped
from $4 per head under the McKmley
law to IB per head under the low tariff
law. Now, my observation is that sheep
dropped in the satnw proportion as did
wool under the McKmley bill. Tbj
i'ress is mistaken, too. when it quotes
wool at 7to 8 cents, when it is lo to 11
cents at present. A. H. James.

THE T.Vltil-I' ON N\ILS.
Thn Market Quotations Dtaprbre
KopnbHean Misrepresentation.
To the Editor of the Globe.
Attention is called to an editorial in
tins Pioneer Press wherein the state
ment is made that "a paragraph in the
tariff law. as Mr. Wilson approved it in
the house increases the duty on cut
nails from 18.6 per cent, on an ad val
orem hasi?; as it stood under the Me-
Kiulev act. 10 25 per cent."
The following quotations are from a
pamphlet printed at the government
printing office, Washington, 1894:
Tariff of 1830, paragraph 173. "Cut
nails and cut spikes of Iron or steel, 1,
cent per pound."
Tariff of 1894, paragraph 145, "Cut
naiis and cut spikes -of iron or steel,

. A duty of 18.0 pe«r centum ad valorem
yielding a tariff of 1 era! per pound
implies a toreign cost of Xi% cents per

■ -•■• Pneumonia.
The painful news comes from Wash
ington that Mrs. Earl b. Goodrich died
at Washington yesterday morning of
pneumonia. She was a lovely lady.and
her demise will be mourned by a wide
circle of friends in St. Paul. She was
'the mother of S. 11. McMasters and
Mrs. O. S. Green, of St. Paul. Mm.
Goodrich had lived with her husband in

While every Democratic paper in this
district is supporting Congressman O.
M. Hall for re-election, it is a notorious
fact that the St. Paul Voikszeitung,
published by C. It. L.i»nau. is vigor
ourly opposing him. Now, the truth of
it all is that Lienau is opposing Mr. Hal!
simply through a spirit of hostility, and
because he was not favored with some
federal appointment through Mr. Hali's
instrumentality during his (Hall's) last
official term. Mr. Hall informed us,while
here this week, that out of eigtaty-six
postmasters appointed in this district
by him thirty-four are Germans, which
shows that a majority of this nationality
were appointed to such offices in pro
portion to other nationalities. Mr.
Hall was also instrumental in appoint
ing Louis Stern (who used to edit the
Voikszeitung) as consul to Brenner.
Germany, which is another reason of
Lieiirtu's ridiculous opposition to Mr.
Hall. Lienau opposes Congressman
Hall because he (Lienau) was not fav
ored with a federal appointment, and
has always opposed every appointment
of.this kind made by Mr. Hall, and, al
though a German himself, is one of the
w<jrst enemies of his owu nationality in
this state.
Baldwiu Will Win.
St,-Cloud Times.
Our Republican friends, as usual, are
playing their game of bluff in this state
and congressional district. Here, be
ginning with Steams county, they give
Tcwue several hundred more "votes
than JuUcb Searle, popular citizen
though he is, received in his own coun
ty. The absurdity of this is enough to
destroy the whole fabric of their argu
ment. Then they assert that Towue
will have 3,000 majority in St. Louis
county, and carry the iron ranges solid.
To our Democratic friends w«say:
"Saw wood and say nothing." Young
Mr. Towne may shout and declaim,
but that gallant old soldier. Mnj. Bald
win.will continue to represent the Sixth
district. Hia election is already an as
sured far»t. Let every Democrat, every
citizen of the district who would best
subserve its interest, work earnestly
for his election.

A protest against the resignation from

it seems to be an accepted fact that

sympathizes with the organization or he
would not have received its suiport.
The A. P. A. organ at Dniuth, Liberty,
asserts positively that the A. P. A.
nominated Towne, and its statement
ought lo be considered conclusive.

reached here today or the lynching ot
Eddy Martin, in Critteudeii county,
on yesterday mornlnsr, by a itiob vari
ously estimated at from 50 to 100 men.
The scene of the lynching is a reunite
part of the county, and the details of
the erinie are hard io The l>est ob
tainable information is that Martin was
called upon at his home atier midnight.
Opening the door he was seized by a
dozen or more men who asked for in
formaUoi) of Bill Goode, the lawless
pauper commissioner of Crittenden
county.
tie was also asked about the latter's
crime, especially that of horse stealing.
The mob told him they had come to
hang him, but if lie would turn state's
evidence upon Bill (loode he would be
spared.
"If these are the only terms, gentle
men," said he, "let the hanging pro
ceed. Bill Goorte has beeu my friend,
and I will shield him."
The mob quickly did its work and left
the body swaying from a limb upon a
lone county road. 'Hie hanging is the
result of the Goode-Rich gang In Ciit
lenden county and their lawlessness
committed here. Goode, the leader,
has been visited three times by a mob.
but escaped each time. Berry Kicli was
hung about two weeks ago and the mob
made a raid again last week, but tailed
to fiud their men.
TRUE TO MARK!AGE VOWS.
Mrs. Drayton Denies Charges of
Infidelity.
Trentos, N. J.. Oct. 31.—The answer
in the James Coleman-Drayton divorce
suit was tiled at 4 o'clock this afternoon.
Mrs. Drayton dentas the charge of mari
tial infidelity made by her husband, and
accuses him of having deserted her
without cause. The answer is filfd in
her behalf by E. V. Liudabury, of Eliza
beth.
Mrs. Drayton in her answer, which is
brief, admits her marriage to her huss
band iv New York city on Oct. 20, 18S0.
where they resided until 188(3. Thi*n
they removed to Bernardsviite, N. J.,
wher« they continued to live until Oct.
1, 1891. After that they traveled in
Europe until some time early in 1892.
She denies that she left her husband
while they were temporarily sojourning
in London iv January, 1892, but that lie
left her through cruel and unjust suspi
cion as to her marital fidelity. Mrs.
Drayton makes specific denial to each
and every allegation in her husband's
bill charging her with adultery with
liailet Alsop Borrowe, and says that she
was never guilty of ariuueiy"witli Bor
rowe or any other person whatsoever,
either in New York, London. Bernards
ville or any other place. "Thecharges,"
she says, "are wholly untrue anu a most
cruel and unfounded imputation." On
tne contrary, she says, slie baa always
faithfully regarded her marriage vows
and has been true and faithful to her
vows as his wife.

be on Blue creek today, about twelve
miles from here, but the origin of the
report cannot, be learned, and it is only
partially credited, though a force of
officers have stone out there. It is a
noticeable fact that not one-fourth of
the reports of their whereabouts that
have come here sue correct. The officers
who have been hunting them have not
been shown any favors on their route,
and have had to pay well for anything
they got. The gang has about quit
depredations and have scattered in all
directions. There, is but little hope of
effecting their capture soon.
