Authoritative announcement of the
coming campaigning tour of John Lind,
the union nominee for governor, was
yesterday made by Chairman L. A.
Rosing, of the Democratic state cen
tral committee, as follows:
Mr. Lind will speak in Minneapolis,
Oct. 10; Duluth. Oct. 11; Cokato, Oct.
3t Cloud, Oct. 13; Hallock, Oct. U;
afternoon; Warren, Oct. 14. evening;
Crookston, Oct. 15; Moorhead. Oct. IT;
Wheaton, Oct. 18, afternoon; Graceville,
Oct. IS. evening:; Benson. Oct. 19; Will
mar, Oct. 20. afternoon; Litchfield, Oct.
20, evening.
This leaves Saturday and Sunday,
Oct. ]f> and 16, largely at the disposition
of the 10-al committee at Crookston.
The trip will entail some energetic
work, as it amounts to making thirteen
addresses In as many different com
munities, In eleven days, only ten of
which are to be utilized, through the
fact that Sunday must, of course, in
terrupt. It is certain, however, that
the tour will be in one sense at least a
triumphal one. The committees in
charge of the local meetings say that
immense crowds are promised in every
case, and the bulk of the meetings are
in the Sixth and Seventh districts,
where Charles A. Towne aad P. M.
Ringdal, the congressional nominees,
have prepared the people for the ad
vent - t Mr. Lind.
Towne and Ringd&l, by the way, are
to exchange£»dates. Mr. Towne will
speak in Fergus Falls, in the Seventh
district, i:ext week, and Mr. Ring'dal
ivill make one address over In Mr.
Towne's di«ti i<-t.
There is so little doubt of the elec
tion of both that It all amounts to the
6ame thing anyway.
Mr. RingdaTa campaign promises a
glorious success. He has campaigned
the district thoroughly and has uni
formly addressed himself to thoss issues
which are nearest to the voters of the
districts. His opinions are clear and
well defined, both by his public utter
ance* and by his record In. the state
senate, and the people of the district
have on numerous occasions testified
their warm approval of his candidacy.

Republican papers are being scared, as

Fergus Falls, Miun., Oct. 4.— This year
from the present outlook it will be the
"bloody Seventh." The situation is more
critical as far as the congressional and leg
islative 'ticket is concerned than two years
ago. Frank M. Eddy and P. Ringdal are
both making a persistent and aggressive cam
paign. The femur, though a hard worker,
is already beginning to feel the strain. Tho
latter Is a man of iron constitution which
will aid him in the fight. Tho s:ate ticket is
safe for the Republicans. Mr. Loebeck's can
didacy on the Prohibition ticket will aid Ed
dy's chances, aa will Mr. Sageny, the Pro
hibition nominee for the legislature, will
aid Johnson. Otter Tail county will no doubt
elec: a majority of its officers from the Pop
ulistic fold, though Stove Butler' 3 election to
the treasuryshlp is assured.
Special to the Dispatch.
Mi liuosh, Minn., Oct. 4. — Senator Nelson
opened th«j Republican campaign here with
an audience of about 3i<), mostly Populists.
The meeting was also addressed by Prof.
Hendriokson. of Wisconsin, an.d Judge Mon
tague, of Crookston. Owing to the bitter
feeling which prevails here because of the
arbitrary refasal of the state beard to per
mit a vote en the division question in f>ti*
county there was a noticeable lack of en
thusiasm and no mention whatever was niada
of the state ticket.
Mr. Lind will make three speeches in
the Sixth district, at Duluth, Cokato
and St. Cloud. It is barely possible that
he will be able to stop off at the judi
cial district convention at Eik River
and make an address, although the
train service is not the best for such
a plan. Inasmuch as the Republicans
realize that the caus<; of Page Morris
is a. lost one, his meetings having been
a frost everywhere, and Mr. Towne
seems abundantly able to carry the dis
trict unassisted, not only for himself,
but for the New Ulm man, Mr. Llnd
has determined to make the bulk of hi 3
first trip in the Seventh district. The
Republicans are waging 1 a tremendous
fight for the election of Congressman
Eddy. It Is not only necessary to elect
Ringdal to congress in that district,
which is almost certain even now, but
it is necessary that the union forces of
the Seventh district should return a
large majority for the Democratic and
People's party tickets, in order that
the party can down the gerrymandered
districts of the southeastern part of the
Consequently the greater part of Mr.
Lind's route has been made out in these
two districts. After the mustering out
of the Twelfth regiment, he will prob
ably be able to devote from five to ten
days to his personal campaign again,
but the first and forefront of the bat
tle is to be in the Sixth and Seventh
Reports are coming in from the
northwestern part of the state and they
show that Knute Nelson is far from
having a honeymoon on the hustings.
Indeed, his path is beset with travail
and he wishes himself well out of it.
The following letter indicates the
temper in the Seventh district:
To Press Bureau, Democratic State Central
IfclntGah. Minn.. Oct. 2.— Senator Nelson
opened the Republican campaign here Sat
urday evoning. There were about 300 pres
ent in the audience, mostly Populists. Prof
Hendricks, of Wisconsin, is also in this
vicinity in the interest of the Republican
ticket: he spoke at Saturday's meeting, a.lso
both In Norwegian and English. Nelson de
voted himself entirely to national issues and
sue legislation, and did not even mention
tho state ticket, which waa entirely and
noticeab'.y Ignored throughout the entire ex
ercises. Possibly the bitter feeling here
against the state administration, owing to the
arbitrary and illegal refusal of the state
bi ard to even permit a vote on the c.ie.stion
of division of this county, may, in part, ac
count for this, and certain it 18 that any at
tempt to further Berg or Dunn's cause here
would have resulted in the breaking up of
tho meeting and the howling down of the
speaker by Republicans, as well as fusion
ists. Ne-son devoted hlmsflf largely to the
tariff, particularly the pulling of wool over
the farmers' eyos and the telling of .how
much better prices are now than before the
Dingley bill waa passrd. He said but little
about silver, except that the question was
dead, nothing about his bankruptcy bill, and
rather avoided the currency issue by ridicul
ing the old state bank notes. On "state Is
sues he claimed that fusion legislature in
'91 raised taxea and did norhing else, while
the < Republican legislature had passed a
whole lot of good laws. I enclose clipping
from my paper relative to the division mat
ter that accounts for the hostile feeling to
wards the state ticket in this neck of the
woods. _ c. T. Lanraan.
That the Second district will stand
solidly behind John Lind, and that It
will also rally to the support of D. H.
Evans, of Tracy, the union nominee
for congress, is undoubted. All through
the southwestern part of the state Mr.
Lind has always been strong, personal
ly. His record at Chickamauga la
known to the people of the district,
where not a few of the companies of the
Twelfth lvgiment were recruited, and
every re-turning volunteer whose home
is in the district is known to his friends
and all as a stalwart advocate of the
recognition of Mr. l.md.
The efforts of the Republicans to drag
the Democratic nominee away from his
campaign to answer baseless rumors
of or;e port and another do not have
ai:y weight with the voters of the Sec
end district, and the scant majority of
1.000 by which Clouprh carried the Sec
ond congressional district is likely to
be cut entirely away and a majority
for Lind substituted when the ballots
arc counted. Mr. Evans' election, too,
seems assured.
The Third district ffl rallying strongly
to the leadership of Mr. Hinds, of
Shakopee. As the head of one of the
soundest secret orders in the state,
Charles G. Hinds has a following which
is as loyal as the American soldier, and
l ersonally he is an excellent campaign
er. That the Third district will return
a Democrat to the station occupied in
nocuously, perhaps, but inefficiently, by
Joel P. Heatwole, is as sure, seemingly
as that night and day shall follow in
their natural sequence.
Senator H. H. Dunn, of Fairmont,

publicans of Martin and Watonwan
counties, was at the Windsor today,

Mr. Dunn says that he is confident of
Senator E. T. Thompson, of Preston

As evidence of h»\v things are going
in the outside counties in the congres-
slonal fight In this district. Secretary
Battley received a letter yesterday from
W. D, Savage of Chlsago, giving the
names of the new members of a Llnd
and Willis club which has been organ-
Ized by the residents of Harris and Sun

the list, and Mr. Savage points especial
ly to the fact that more than half of

The explanation for the feeling in
the congressional campaign against
Stevens in the outside counties is In
the fact that many of the farmers in
Chicago and the other counties have
relatives in St. Paul who brought their
thrifty habits to town with them and
proceeded to lay up money in the Ste
vens-Blckel bank. They don't want
tho president of the defunct bank to

Explain* Why the Diiu^nter of XV.
F. S in itl> Waa Taken Back to
Prnlrieville, YVls.
Principal J. C. Bryant, of the Cen
tral High school, has received a letter
from Rev. G. W. Pixley, pastor of the
First Baptist church at Prairievllle,
Mich., which throws considerable addi
tional light upon the alleged abduction
of Mte=s Edna A. Smith, which occurred
on Tuesday. Since tho disappearance
of Miss Smith nothing has been heard
of her except a short note written by
Mr. Pixley on the train to William F.
Smith, Miss Smiths father, which
stated that he had Edna with him, and
was taking her to Prairieville.
Rev. Mr. Pixley's letter runs as fol
Allow rue to explain my apparent abuse of
the hospitality of the Central hl^h school Ust
Tuesday. Miss Edna Smith was taken by her
father hist October from the home where she
had^ lived and been cared for since she was
tKYee daya old. lie made a strict promise a.)d
put it in writing whrn she went that she
should be returned to Mrs. De Wolf's farm in
Ma~y, 1858, but told a man here before he
started that she should not return al ail.
Oct. 28 he write the same to me.
About the same time he began a series of
mo3t abusive and Insulting lettrrs to Misa
De Wolf and to erase and rewrite Edna's
letters. From the first no letter was allowed
to reach her without going through his hand 3.
These things drove Miss De Wolf a'most in
sane, and she wrote some very foolish and
improper letters to Edna, scarcely knowing
what she did. When she went she exacted a
ri">mi3e from me that I would write every
week. For a time I old so, and soon he
began to keep back letters from me to her
and from her to me.
In Juno he stopped the correspondence en
tirely, all of which he had a perfect legal
right to do. Only one little note direct from
her has been received here this ye«r, and that
revealed a very homesick erii 1 and said:
"Don't let papa know I sent this, for I don't
know what he would do."
The climax of all came Sept 22, in a letter
unintelligible to us, except in the supposition
that she wrote it under force and that it con
tained a direct falsehood. Edna told us Tues
day that she never saw the part that sur
prised us so; that ho altered it to sui' him-
but. en Bering the letter. I determined to
know the truth. Hence my visit to St. Paul.
We had no idea of bringing her away with
us, oily to see her and know how she was.
DuriiTg recess that day sh-' told Miss P. that
she v/as coming with us. After an hour's talk
with her I consulted a lawyer a3 to the bfst
course to pursue, and followed his advice as
closely as seemed practical to me.
I regretted very much the need of bringing
her away from school, which I feel i? almost
a sacred place, but I have been strictly con
sri^tious in what I have done, and believe
you* would have done likewise in the same
circumstances. Respectfully fours,
— G. V. Pixlsy.

Q i
W. R. Prendergast Will Take More
Votes Away From Hilly Johnson
Than He Can Afford to Spare
Geoi-Ke IrUh'i Campaign In Com
petent Hand* Democratic l'.\_
ecntlve Committee Meeting.
The action of the Populists in nomi
nating a county ticket had a depressing
effect on the Republicans interested in
the county campaign. It had been sup
posed that the men most interested
would have been able to control the
Populist convention at least to the ex
tent of nominating men who had been
identified with the Democratic party
in the past, and if that could not be
done, then to have the Pops endorse
buch of the Republican nominees as
might be desirable. That they failed in
both of these aims is due to the clum
sy way in which they went to work on
the Pops.
The last thing that Billy Johnson de
sired was that such a man as M. C.
Prendergast should be nominated for
ounty auditor. Prendergast will dis
tinctly cut into the Johnson vote. He
will run among a class of people who
would not accept a straight Democrat
at any price, and whose votes would
have been cast against Platte. They
must necessarily have been for Johnson
with Prendergast out of the way; now
they will go for the Populist, and the
little man from the Eighth will be shy
probably COO of the vote that he would
otherwise get. It is generally conceded
that Prendergast will have in the
neighborhood of SOO votes.
Ar-other error was made In permit
ting the nomination of Slater— an event
that could not have been prevented
with the leaders who got in control
Tuesday evening. There was a consid
erable vote that might have been influ
enced to go against Wagener direct.
Now that vote will find a place for it
self in the support of Slater. No one
know? or cares who Slater is, the Pop^
only desire to know that they do not
havf. to vote for Irish in order to avoid
voting for Wagem-r. The Wagener
dissidents were not numerous at best,
but they would have been for Irish in
case it had been left to a straight race.
Now that vote will be for Slater, and
a dead less to the Fourth ward ma
chine candidate. •
In this connection the Republicans
have still another card to play which
they consider a trump. In the course
of the next week they will induce some
German to come out inoep ndently, with
a view to getting some of the German
vote. This is given out in advance. It
was considered jesterday afternoon at
the meeting of the Republican execu
tive committee, and the name of the
independent will be announced in a
few days. It is hardly likely that a
man having any kind of standing can
be hired to do the trick, and his can
didacy will not be a menace to Wag
ener. It is much more likely to react
on the men who put him into the field.
The nomination of James Cormican
for clerk of the courts will probably
reduce Ed Rogers' vote by 75, possibly
100. Cormican can scarcely expect to
get more than that many votes at the
outside. If some man of influence like
R. A. Walsh had been named for the
place his candidacy would undoubtedly
affect the result. As it is the nomina
tion can make no possible difference.
A. E. Bowe's nomination for district
judge will have an adverse effect on
Wilirich, and was probably engineered
by some of the Jaggard push. The
fight on the judgeships, so far as the
Republicans are concerned, is not be
tween the Democratic and Republican
nominees, but between Jaggard and
W'llrieh for second place. They all
know that it will be impossible to elect
more than one of the judges — even that
is granted only as a remote contingen
cy. Jaggard is fighting Wilirich troth
and toe nail, and Wilirich is getting
even in the Eighth ward by working
for Wilirich. Jaggard's friends claim
that Wilirich will run a thousand be
hind his ticket in the Sevc-Mh ward —
which means that he will^et no votes
at all, practically. The Jaggard people
knew very well that a Populist nomina
tion would cut into Willrich's strength
and not at all affect Jaggard. Hence
their d sire for a single Pop nomina
tion. Bowe and his friends may not
be parties to the deal, but Wilirich
was especially sore at them yesterday,
and he naturally blames Jaggard.
An attempt on the part of the friends
of Tin: Sheehan to get the Populists to
name a Swede in the First and Second
wards for the senate reacted on his
managers, and Ed Petersen was nomi
nated. The way ; Lind .ran ,ln the Fhst
ward two years ago showed the Repub
licans that it was necessary to do some
thing, and a determined effort was
made to have the Populists help out the
Republicans in this. Petersen stands
very well with all classes of Pops and
all of their factions, and his endorse
ment provides for a straight fight in
a district that will be worth watching
• * *
Taken as a whole the Populist ticket
helps the straight Democratic ticket,
in the estimation of the politicians. It
takes an element of doubt out of the
campaign. It will preserve the Popu
list party's individuality and will show
the strength of the party at the polls.
The ticket was put in the field with the
full knowledge that it could not p0.?.
--sllbly be elected or even poll for its
best representative a thousand vote*.
The Pops have bee<n approached by th»
Republicans with a view to doing
something that would injure the Demo
cratic ticket. The leaders of the Popu
lists caught the idea that they were
to be used as a tail to the Republican
dog, and th?y resented it by nominating
a ticket that will catch disaffected Re
publicans and Populists who are sin
cere in the'r Populism — ardVio o>ne else.
Said a prominent Republican politician:
"We have got the worst of it at last.
I never believed that anything could be
made by going into foreign political
camps and trying to manipulate therr
convections, If our people had stayed
away from that affair of Tuesday night
the ehanoe-s are that the Pops would
have endorsed some Democrats, pos
sibly a Republican or two, and the issue
would have been straight. Now we will
be charged with having put the ticket
up and the Lord knows we'll suffer
enough from it without that "
• i ♦ «■
Horace Bigelow acted with com
mendable sagacity. He saw what was
coming and grot -away, from the Popu
list deal. His managers had It In mind
to have somebody nominated and would
have tried to put such a nomination
through had the>y not seen the trend
of the convention. They saw it would
handicap Bigelow to 1 have anybody In
the place on the ticket for county at
torney and they got from u<nder. Horace
may be very yoiitig artd not on speak
ing terms with the law, but he knows
a thing or two a/bout' politics, and he
thinks himself Very lucky that noth
ing was done for'hlrrY.

An enthusiastic gathering of French voters
last evening listened to an exhaustive address
upon the principles of Democracy, delivered
£ y IL : At Paradls . at the French hall on
Tenth street, near Cedar. Judge Wi!lia al o
Mr. Paradis spoke in French. His arra'gn
ment of the Republican party In what he
termed its degeneracy in having fallen under
control of monopolies and trusts was severe
He took the party to task for its selfishness
and misrule in forwarding the interests of
the few to the detriment of the masses, and
declared that the only way of rescu'ng tha
country was to vote the Republican party
out of power. John Lind for governor and

applause of the audience showed that his
statements found favor in their sight
Judge Willis spoke but briefly. He de
clared the prosperity promised by the Repub

confidence' 1 had not made Its appeaiarc ,
and as a striking local example of the fala
cious argument, pointed to a falling off in
the property valuation In St. Paul of $3Oo'o
within the last year.
"Two years ago a candidate, promising you
this prosperity, was elected to congress fiom
this district. Within a few months aft-r he
filtered upon the duties of his office, the
bank of which he was the president falei.
This is the kind of prosperity that has ever
tollowed in the wake of protection to trust*
and monopolies."
With reference to imperialism, Judge
Willis recalled the course of an English sov
ereign who, finding his subjects discontented
precipitated a foreign war to detract their
attention from the condition of affairs at

"I can't quite figure, ' said John Cavanagh
yesterday, "just which of the Republican
candidates will get the- worst of It as a
result of the manner in which the Dispatch
is running the judicial ticket. You have
noticed tbatt Willrich and Jaggard are In
cluded in the list of candidates on the official
Republican ticket and at the bottom of the
list Is added the name of George L. Bunn,
under 'he distinctive title of 'Public Ticket.'
Willrich will, of course, get the worst of it
in those wards where the Dispatch has any
sort of influence, and in the other wards
Jaggard will set it from Willrich'a friends."
The combination ticket that has been pre
sented is attracting some attention among
politicians, and many efforts have been made
to Induce a change.

Mr. Cavanagh's candidacy la in a flatter

There will be no lack of organization In
the Eiirh'h ward on the Democratic side.
That is now evident. Monday night there
was a Lind and Willis club organized at
Dale and University, with a large and en
thusiastic membership. Last night the low

with the ward and knew exactly how It stood
last spring, that The Globe had rather un

meetings to some extent. It has occurred to
them that the whole people must be got to
see that the county Is In the griTsp of a rolit-
Ica] ring, and that the court house and city
hall crowd control absolutely In Republican
conventions. This fact cannot be gotten to
all of the people, for all of the people will
not turn out to ward meetings nor to general
meeting*. In old days In St. Paul the ooen
air campaign was the effective campaign.
The man who Is not interested in politios to
the extent of going deliberately to a meeting
will step and listen to an argument that ha
hears in passing, and it has been suggested
that the campaigns of the days when Gen.
Sibley used to preside over the open-air
meetings in front of the old court house were
more effective than the modern idea of gath
ering in small hails. It is complained and
it is a fact, that only partisans attend the
hall meetings. That men who have rolitical
convictions go to their own party meetings
and not to those of the other party. The
proposal for open-air meetings is still in the
speculative atage, but it id being pushed by
some of the Democratic leaders.
