Van Slykk has worked earnestly tor this city tor so many years that generations that have grown up since his first coining to the city can look about them and say that whatever there is of beauty or magnificence in the metropolis of the Northwest is due largely to his pains and diligence. It is but fitting that his declining years should be bolstered up with whatever of compensation can be reaped from a lew yeais' service in a fairly good office. The Chicago lutoi Ocean up to date is of the opinion that the hard times are due to the fact that we sell the surplus of our product abroad. A bhort time ago its opinion was that the hard times were due to the tact that there was an overproduction or farm products, be cause too many people were engaged in that vocation, home time in the dim and distant future the Inter Ocean may know positively where it is at on this and other kindred topics. Wn.r.iAM Koch showed his sterling •worth and business ability in the past two years as expert printer for the county. By devoting more of his time to the duties than could have been ex pected from any other, and bringing to bear a knowledge that is probably not possessed by half a dozen men in the city, he reduced to a complete sys tem the purchasing nt supplies for the county as well as its public printing, and thus has saved $3,000 a year to the taxpayers, reducing the cost of printing and purchasing of supplies over on*, half. Those who know him feel sure that he would use the same care in con ducting the office of register of deeds if elected, and believe that he should be Complimented by a large majority.

Wednesday lh»y will conzrat uliiU' the country upon the remarkable prosperity and thespetdy recovery from the panic of 1S;)3. THK CONGUKitMIUNAL ISSUK. The voters of the Fourth . congres sional district will do something more than express their desire to see this one or that one of the gentlemen who are candidates for representative in con gress elected when they go into the booths next Tuesday, if they appreciate the responsibility of their act and direct it intelligently. It is not whether Mr. Darragh or Mr. Kieferor Mr. Clarke shall sit m a chair in the hail of congiess and draw a com fortabie salary for two years, nor is it a question of the relative fitness or the social qualities of any of the candidates involved in the decision to be made by each voter. It is a much larger matter tnan the personality of any of the can didates, dwarfing them into meiu mark ers in the great game of contending principles. What each voter, if he would intelli gently discharge his civic duty, should ask himself is, "What do each of these men stand for? Which one stands for what 1 believe to be the correct princi ple of government? Whether I liKe or dislike the man is, nothing; what prin ciple does he represent?" And having answered these questions he should make his ballot declare his judgment. If the intelligent voter were to make inquiry he would answer these ques tions somewhat as follows: Mr. Kieler, setting aside the some what miscellaneous assortment of mis information he takes occasion to dis play, stands for the principle of tne regulation of the business, and, carried to its end, the private affairs of men. It deifies government as the great source of everything. It regards men as chil dren incapable of managing their own affairs or looking out for themselves, l'ut into practice, it would make dearer th? bread and meat men eat, the cloth ing they wear, the glass and lumber that shelters and the fuel that warm? them; and it would, if it could, make dearer the cost of service. It was Mr. Kieier's boast that he tried to make dearer thu potatoes his constituents eat, that a few of them who raise them might make more profit; and his concern even extended to tne starch that stittVns their linen. This is all he stands for. Mr. Clarke stands for two antagonistic conceptions of government if he stands for Populism as declared iv Omaha. One of these is the Republican idea carried a degree higher or lower, as you wish, and results from the belated 1 .mi ig of two classes, the wage earn ers a tut the farmers, that the principle and its policies ot which Mr. Kiefer is the representative fall short of per formance and do not make wages or farm produce dearer while increasing the coat ot all they consume; and so they demand a policy that would, as they imagine, give them a share of the plunder ot all. As a Democrat, he. un less he has abjured his Democracy, rep resents a principle which denies to gov ernment any such function, in fact, he represents nothing but a reoeratdift couujnt produced by the policies of the party of Mr. Kiefer. Mr. Darragh stands for the principle ot the greatest liberty fur the citizen, and the least abridgment of that lib erty by its transmutation into law which is consistent with the safety of e:\ch. It restson the truth that men can manage their affair* better than they can be managed for them by any government, ana that it is best for men and for the nation that uieu be thus left to depend on themselves. In practice an I spe ciricaliy, at this time, it would give to every man the unrestricted right to buy and sell where he will —a simple right, so natural and inherent in liberty that it is marvelous any one can deny it. It would make things neither dearer nor cheaper by enactment, because ali things cannot be made either by law. All attempts at it anywhere and every where have ended in just the present conditions, and greed and avarice have ever profited by it. These are the considerations that should control the marking of every ballot Tuesday Dext, and if they are given due and thoughtful attention the result will be that the principle of De mocracy will triumph, and Mr. Darragh will be their representative in the next congress. • Stamp it on the sun—paint it on the moon—the superiority of Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder. THE CONSIIiIiiOSAL AMEND- MENT. Among other things which the voters ot the state will be called upou to de cide next Tuesday is the ptoposed amendment to section 1 of article 9 of the constitution, relating to taxes. It is proposed to add to section 1 the fol lowing clause: And provided further. That there may be by law levied and collected a tax upou all inheritances, devses, bequests, legacies and Rifts cf every kind and description afo'jve a fixed and specified sum. of any and all nat ural persons aud corporations, such tax above such exempted sum may be uniform, or it may be graded or progressive, but shall not exceed amaximum tax of 5 per cent. The words "Yes" and "No" will be printed on the ballot, and the voter who is in favor of the amendment will mark a cross opposite the word "Yes." The UuoBM recommends without hes itation the adoption of the amendment. It is a measure in favor of the majority of the people. It will give the legisla ture the power to pass a law providiug for a progressive tax on legacies and inheritances. It will permit small es tates to be probated free of charge and tax the heirs of large estates a percent age ou the amount received, the per centage to increase as the value of the estate increases. The moneys so collected will discharge to that extent the indebtedness ot the state and effect a reduction of the rate of taxation on other things. THE DECISIONS OF JUDGE WILLIS. The Pioneer Press busies itself with venomous attacks upon Judge Willis. Thfs indicates an anxiety on the part of Republicans which bodes well for the Democratic ohampion of popular rishts. The hostility of the Pioneer Press is always a distinct benefit to any candi date. Let the jackals continue their howl. As Hon. H. R. Wells, of Pres ton, tersely puts it, "Let the rattlers rattle." If the Pioneer Press would confine itself to the facts, it would save itself much humiliation and regret. It purposely falsifies when it says that a majority of the decisions made by Judge Willis from which appeals have been taken to the supreme court have been reversed. The actual fact is that six teen of such decisions have been af firmed, fifteen reversed and one modi lied. Several of these decisions were made in conformity with the principles of law as determined upon by the district court of this district before Judge Willis went upon the bench. When it hap pened that an appeal was first tairen from his decision upon a eiven subject, the propriety of the rule, locaily estab tbe SAiWt Paul daily globe: Saturday morxi^;}. November 3, isn llshert. was thus brought under review, and the result was a reversal. In re versing J'id_ r Willis, the supreme court has also overruled and differed with the supreme courts of Mich igan, Wisconsin and other states courts which are among the leading lights of jurisprudence. It must be borne in mind, also, that the supreme court of Minnesota has often reversed itself. j It did so, in a conspicuous man ner, during the present yaar. Toe grand contortion was made in the case entitled State of Minnesota ex r«l. ' Board of Court House Commissioners of the City of Minneapolis and County of ilennepin vs. Cooley. County Au ditor, etc.. reported on page 150, volume 5S of the Northwestern Reporter. This was a proceeding for the purpose of ob taining a writ of mandamus compel ling the auditor of the "county of Ilenne pin to countersign bo nds issued for the building of th* Minneapolis court house, pursuant to chapter of the Laws of ISU3. The auditor refused to countersign the bonds, upon the ground that the enactment of 18'.)3 was void be cause interdicted by section 33. article 4of the state constitution, relative to special legislation. The supreme court held, by an opinion tiled on the 30th day of June. 1893, that the auditor was ritrhl; that the act of 1893 was a special la .v, and therefore obnoxious to the con stitution. Since this decision was very distasteful to certain inhabitants of Minneapolis (because the supreme court was right in saying in its opinion that "the result of this legislation may prove very unfortunate in the present condition of the building in quesliou").fgreat pressure was brought to bear to have |the case decided the other way. A reareriiment was had, and the supreme court, ignoring what it had declared in its first opinion to be fundamental principles of legislation, statutory construction and constitutional law, reversed its former decision, and held that it was the duty of the auditor to countersign the bonds. Both opin ions were written by the same indi vidual, Hon. L. W. Collins, associate justice of the supreme court, and Re publican candidate for re-election. And yet the Pioneer Press, airing its sub limated -ignorance, assumes to talk disparagingly of Judge Willis because the supreme court has reversed some of his decisions. The supreme court has been forced to affirm the decisions of Judge Willis in nearly all cases upon questions of real estate law and com mercial law, but has uniformly over ruled him in all cases wherein his de cision tended to uphold the fundamental rights and liberties ot the people. Gov. Nki.sox has answered Labor through one of its representatives, and the Dispatch echoes him. The answer is what might have been expected. If Labor wants anything as Labor, it must vole tor Nelson. Elect him, and it cau get anything it wants. The party of these two has been doing something for Labor for thirty years. Why is Labor so discontented now? Why is it asking for something? If what has been done has brought it where it must have more done, isn't the treatment radically wroiiif? Had not Labor better change doctors? All these fellows want is Labor's vote. Neither they nor iheir party have ever done more than pretend to be doing something for Labor which it has not done because, simply, it could not do it. They have fooied Labor for years,and think it can be fouled again. If Labor is so foolish as to believe their sophisms.then Labor is too foolish to waste reason on. If Labor is not, if it has learned anything in all its recent bitter experience, then it knows what to do, and argument is useless. Labor has no wiser or truer friend in this whole land than is Henry George, and he teils Labor that what it wants is to be let alone; it doesn't want to be helped so much as to be let have a chance to help Itself. Without excepting any candidate for the legislature in the state at large, P. tl. Kelly was the most faithful to the interests of the people in the session of two years ago. lie not only worked lor the good of Ramsey county, but he sacriticeii no otbsr interest in the state iv so aoiufj. liis work for a number of institutions is n meinbered with grati tude by people throughout the state, and many of the members who come to the session the coming winter will be under obligation to him, and look to him for help in worthy causes. These facts should prompt the people of the Second ward, irrespective of party, to see that he is returned with a majority that will show the esteem in written he is held at home. It is seldom that a man of ability as well as integrity in the practice of law can be induced to devote his abilities to the service of the county as its prose cuting attorney and its represen f,ative in the civil department of the courts. That so able a man as Pierce Butler Is willing to devote two more years to such service is a matter for congratula tion to the taxpayers and lovers of good order. It is said that he was offered in— ducements to step aside from the office and devote his talents to private inter ests at a remunerative salary, but it i 3 fortunate that the people have another chance to elect him to the office of county attorney. The Chicago Tribune regards it as merely cue of the pleasantries of the campaign that the chairman of the Re publican state central committee should charge Mayor Hopkins with levying blackmail on the vices of that city. The affair, it says, is taken as a joke. It is probably one of the jokes of the cam paign in this state that the Pioneer Press called Mr. Biermann a thief. It may be that among Republicans it is considered the jovial and social and en tirely the proper thing to use terms of that kind. Democrats have not jet reached that point of decadence, and still regard it as being somewhat seri ous to be called a blackmailer or a thief. In woman's empire Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is always sure to rule. The Minneapolis millers are trying to arrange auotner flour combination in order to prevent competition, which is breaking down the price of Hour. They have appealed to the St. Louis millers to join them in a shut-down from De cember to January, in order to reduce the output and maintain prices. Inci dentally, we suppose they are doing this for the purpose of protecting thtir employes, who are being demoralized by receiving enormous wages on the one hand and getting their bread too cheaply on the other. The Chicago Times thinks that "this is a good year tor men ot kindred thought to hold together and not to quarrel about party designation." If we gather coirectly the sentiments of Minnesota voters, the opinion of the Times is very extensively shared m tins state. Slow ; (Elections. Washington Star. >;.

Permit an old resident of this city a little space in your valuable paper to express his views upon the political sit uation. It is in reference to oue D. M. Sullivan, candidate for county auditor, and 1 ask in the first place: Has he any claim upon the old settlers of Ramsey county? What one act has he performed that he should ask their votes? Not one. Has he any claim udoii the old soldier vote? Not one. lie did not volunteer, and how he saved himself from the draft none but he can tell. Has he any claim upon the labor vote? Not one, for he has shown himself to be a petty tyrant of the first water whenever he has had the power. The old saying, ••Place a beggar on horseback," etc., is very applioable to our "Dennis." The present situation is entirely changed from a few years ago, when "Dennis" ran for the city council. The little autocrat was theu monarch of all he surveyed —at the Transfer. He had a host of poor laboring men under his charge, whom he could discnarge at his own petty caprine. And he did then use his power, and did discharge labor ing men who were unwilling to vote for him. I will venture to assert, without fear of contradiction, that not one out of ten of his former employes will cast a ballot for him. And he knows in his heart that he does not deserve tbeir support; lor never in the history of the Transfer was there a more arbitrary or domineering "boss than the same little bantam cock, Denny [Sullivan.who is seeking the workwoman's vote for the office of county auditor as a Repub lican nominee, tie only party out of the tour before the people that claims the aid and pals on the back the A. P. P. C- Ah, well do 1 remember years ago this same Denny Sullivan, then a young man, at work for the old St. Paul & Pacific railroad, and how our present Democratic candidate for governor, then president of that road, took this little "Denny" by the haul and lifted him out of the oblivion he was sur rounded by and made a man of him by rapid promotions. We now see theft names on dillerent tickets. The one, the manly exponent of Democratic principles. and who, if he receives the full Democratic vote of the state, will as surely be the next governor of Minne sota as that the sun will set on the Oth of November. The other, a renegade from that party, now a Republican, priced upon that ticket for the simple reason to try to catch the laboring vote, and doing all in his power against his old-time friend, benefactor and more than father. Out upon such a creature. On the other hand, what is his op ponent? Au honest young man, a la boring, self-made man, and one who has risen in public estimation by his own intrinsic merits. M. F. Kain, through his thorough knowledge of the duties of county auditor, was appointed a few months ago to that office, to fill a vacancy. H« found the books in much disorder, but soon, by his well-known ability and thorough honesty of pur pose, they are attain in apple-pie order, and will continue so as long as he will have control. There is more difference between the two candidates than there is between day and night. And I feel every confidence that all right-minded, thinking men in the community will give their voU>s next Tuesday to honest M. F. Kain for auditor, and let his op ponent's name be "Dennis" after elec tion. Ax Old Skttlkk, Who Knows D. M. Sullivau. OIjD SOLDIERS MEET And Indorse ibo rtntire Demo- cratic ticket. Certain Republican orators, who ap pear to forget that the armies of the Union were composed to a large extent of Democratic material, should have been present last evening in Judge Olivier's rooms, in the court house, at the enthusiastic meeting of the Democratic Union Soldiers' club. Up wards of a hundred members were present, and lie speeches of Gen. it. W. Johnson, Judge J. B. Olivier. E. H. Wood, G. W. Anderson and other vet erans were replete with th« patriotism, the direct common sense and the taking drollery of the men who have ".-.ought* honor at the cannon's mouth." The entire Democratic ticket was heartily indorsed, Olivier and Mieseu receiving special mention. • POLITICAL TIPS.

Parker and Thomas Hennessey effected the organization of the Coachman's club, it was thought by many to be a nidie political venture for spring election pur poses. That was not the case, for Mr. Parker stood by the coachmen till he had effected the organization of the Coachmen's Benevolent society, which began with nineteen memb urs and notv has ninety-seven, with applica tions received daily for member ship. This society is the pioneer of. its kind in the Northwest, and its aims and ends are much similar to other benevolent societies. The officers elected were: Thomas Hennessey, president: Charles O. My reun. vice president; M. T. Sandbo, treasurer; H. D. Gough, recording sec retary; Joseph Saudison, financial sec retary, and Thomas Hanm;n, serseant at-arms. They have proven most effi cient workers, as may be judged by the rapid growth of the society. Last night the; society held its first annual bail in $he Central Odd Fellows' hall, which was largely attended, and proved a most pleasant social affair. President Heimessey had been actively at work in getting things shaped Tor the eveut for several weeks past, and the ball was a splendid success. The hall was handsomely decorated with ferns and potted plants, and an excellent orchestra furnished music that made dancing a pleasure. Many of the friends of the society found it cbu venieut to drop m during the evening, and congratulated the boys on the splendid success of the occa sion. Among the visitors were lion. J. J. Parker, from whom the boys demanded a speech and got it: Eli Warner, Anton Miesen and Will iam Koch and others. The opening grand march was led by President and Mrs. Hennessey, and the dancing pro ceeded merrily. Among the ladies present many wore pretty toilets and a profusion of flowers, which, with the bright color of dresses and decorations, made the scene a very bright and at tractive one.
