Heglaud Official Vote of Stevens County, November 7,1882.

The dimensions of the Union arch of the Washington aqueduct, it would appear, exceed those of any of the celebrated engi neering structures which are most com monly pointed to as wonderful achieve ments in masonry. The entire span is 220 feet or twenty in excess of the span of the famous Chester arch across the Dee in Eng land G8 feet longer than the central arch of London Bridge 92 feet longer than the noted bridge over the Seine at Neuilly, and 100 feet longer than the arches of the Waterloo Bridge over the Thames. Tk height of the Washington arch is 101 feet.— Scientific American. The following is given in the Scientific American by Furman Learning, M. D., of liomney Ind., for the benefit of those who f«n either prove or disprove its correctness: "A comet consists of a nucleus and an atmosphere, for tlie most part invisible, extending around it in every direction as far at least as the so-called tail reaches. The sun's rays in passing near or through the nue'eus are so modified as to render visible a part of the cometic atmosphere opposite the sun. When the nucleus ap proaches the sun with the tail behind it, and passing around the sun appears with the tail before it, there has been no swift changing of tail, but merely different por tions (or radii) of the cometic atmosphere have been made visible. Whenever the nuclus approaches near the sun the latter is enveloped in the cometic atmosphere, and abstracts from it whatever is necessary for its use. Should this theory be correct the earth must have passed through the atmospheres of many comets, which have produced no greater effect on it than the zodiacal lights have done." Mourns Minn., Nov. 14th. 1882. Editor Tribune: That little sheet called the Morris Jour nal which, it is generally thought and I do not doubt, is run by funds provided by the Manitoba Railroad for the benefit of Knute Nelson, in its last issue refers to the part I have recently taken in Stevens county poli tics. I have not been in politics my sell for several years and the interest 1 showed in Mr. Kindreds cause during the recent Con gressional contest was free from any self benefit whatever. I never received a dollar or the promise of a dollar for any thing I have done for Mr. Kindred but worked for him because I thought it was for tne best interests of the district. On the other hand jBome of Knute Nelsons most active workers told me last spring tliet they did not care any tiling for Knute Nelson himself but thatjhey wanted to fix the Norwegian vote so tha£ they could use it for their own benefit in the future. This was their only motive in supporting him, and the barking of the whelps now means just about the same thing. J- D. GOOD. Editor Tribunei Not a large but select audience assem bled at Berkin's Hal! on last Friday eve ning to listen to a lecture given by Rev. J. P. Hutchinson, 'f London. England. This was the la&t oi a series given under the auspices of the Board of Trade. Subject '"From London to 41 orris, Minnesota." He first portrayed in pathetic terms his de parture from home, leaving his wife, his two sweet little daughters, and many friends in old London. He gave us a vivid picture of his sea voyage, relating jjeveral funny incidents. On one occasion when the speaker and several ladies and gentlemen were seated at a table, the sea was quite rough, the swells tossing it first *ne way then another, suddenly a young lady was missing, the iuquiry was im mediately made, "where is she?" when the response came from under the table, "I'm Jiere." He dwelt somewhat upon "swells" ind admonished the ladies in particular o beware of "big swells."

Mr. Editor: As tiie Morris Journal sees fit, in com menting upon the recent election in Stevens county, to make certain statements reflecting upon mv" honor, permit me to answer the same through the columns of your paper. At a conference held by some of the leading democrats of the 42nd representa tive district at the Court House in Morris, prior io the Browns Valley democratic convention, at which Mr. Becker was present, I frankly stated that, in my opinion, no outside candidate could hold the full democratic vote of Stevens county agaiust two such popular "home" candi dates as Larson and Wells. Subsequent to the nomination of Mr. Becker and myself, I found that Mr. Wells had great strength among tlif democrats here, and I so ex plained to Mr. Becker, urgently advising him to make a personal canvass of the county, with a view to holding the vote if possible, to himself. I confess I did not then apprehend so great a defection, but all through the canvass I appealed to my friends to remain true to Mr. Becker, who was, in every sense, worthy of their votes and moreover, I slated to almost every democrat of influence in Stevens county, that I was particularly anxious to have that gentleman receive a large vote in my county, because I was well aware that, owing to my intimate personal relations with Mr. Wells, the attempt would be made by my enemies to hold me responsible for any defection from the party vote. In this endeavor I was most earnest, and nearly every leading democrat in Stevens county can bear me witness of its truth. The result of the election shows that my counsels were practically of no avail that in the democratic towns Wells polled a larger vote than myself that my efforts in behalf of Becker, to arrest from Wells the democratic vote, proved futile. Au analysis of the vote shows thfct in this county I received sixty seven Nelson votes. Nov?, allowing me the same pro portion of Kindled votes, I think it is clearly demonstrat that Mr. Campbell received every vote in Stevens county that he was entitled to, for no one will claim more than two hundred Kindred republi can votes in this county. It shows further that Wells drew seventy seven votes from Larson, notwithstanding the bitter inter party fight, that once or twice nearly culminated in disgraceful blows. Some of these same men who now seem so concerned about Mr. Larson's defeat, are the very men who secretly dealt him a treacherous blow, of which he had due warning. I desire it to be distinctly understood that I carry no man's vote in my pocket, to be disposed of at my own will, but every vote that I did, or could influence, was polled for Mr. Becker. If then, through personal popularity, locality, or the arguments used by the Nelson men, viz that the democracy of Stevens county was under obligations to support Wells because of his past assis tance in electing democratic county office holders, Mr. Wells has succeeded in di verting from Mr. Becker a large demo cratic vote to himself, let no man charge nic with bringing about the result, or con niving thereat and, when the author of the article in the Journal does so state, in words or by igrendo, I do not hesitate to brand him as i, uiost malicious Mid das tardly liar, and I only regret that ignorance of liis name deters me from giving it to the public.
