They have been publicly, and privately "on the still hunt," invited to a feast which is to shear them when partaking of it, of their noble cifizensliip and principles of true majffaood. When Mr. lieir man, who been nominated on the Democratic ticket merely and solely because Jie is a Scandinavian, asks those of liis nationality to vote for him on that account, he not only in suits the flag which hangs over his head, but he commits the vilest sort of treason to his adopted country. He, in such conduct, not only attacks the foundation upon which our govern ment is based, but strikes at the per fect freedom of the American citizen, and the laws of the nation which make him such. We all want nothing more to convince us that he is not a proper man to fill that office. We do not want a man branded as "Governor of the Scandinavians," but a citizen, without regard to the spot of ground where he was born, or the language he may speak the most fluently. We want a man for Governor who did not depend upon, any one set of people to elect him, but a man who owes his place to the votes of a state at large, whose servant he will promise to be as faithfully for one as another. We would rather see Gov. Hubbard de feated without recieving a vote, than to have him elected as an American born citizen. Such a course would in volve us in a revolution from which we could never recover. And yet this is what Mr. Bierman would have the Scandinavian citizens do for him. This step of insulting disgrace should defeat him if there were fifty thou sand democratic majority in the state. If we are, as Hon. Knute Nelson says, republicans from principles, let us re main true to our republican ticket from beginning to end. If we bolt others, they may bolt us. LET US TR1 A CHANGE. The Republicans of this county should try and have a change this fall, and see if there cannot be a set of re publican officers elected in a republi can county. The experiment of vot ing for the democracy, which is in the minority, has been tried, and, as it can be seen, nothing has been gained by putting democrats in and keeping re publicans out, and if Ave continue this we may hereafter question our good judgment. Democrats never have been sufficiently liberal to give us a division of the offices, when they had strength to elect one of their own, and there is no prospect that they ever will. Republicans of this county have abused themselves long enough in this way, to now make a change, and have it become a permanent one. A Presi dential campaign is fast approaching us, and we should square the county around and be in readiness for it, and not be in danger of meeting the fate of a democratic majority as Ohio did this fall. This is certainly worth thinking about. 1,100,000 BUSHEL. ELEVATOR It is said that President Hill, of the Manitoba road, has been instrumental in having an elevator built at Duluth that will hold 1,100,000 bushels of wheat. It is plain from thist the rail roads are beginning to learn that the north is the direction for them to point where they can find a home port. We do not think the work of erecting ele vators at that point will be fully ac complished until there shall be a ca pacity there of at least six million bushel storage. The way wheat has been going in at that point this'season, 100,000 bushels a day, it will only take eleven days to fill the contemplated elevator to its full capacity, and next year still more will find its way there, and seven days then will fill fill one of these full. For such a point an eleva tor like this is not much of an enter prise as it can be seen. Calculation should be [made for another road, if not two of them, from the wheat belt within the next two years to Duluth, capable of taking in 100,000 bushels every twenty-fourhours,andincreased elevator capacity mua£ be. prepared. Xox this there without fail. HARP FOR THE PARTY. It was not our intention to say much about polities this fall. As we have such an overwhelming majority in the state, and a majority of from seventy five to a hundred in the county, we thought we might do our community more valuable service in otiu*r direc tions, and that our ticket would under these circumstances take care of itself. But it seems that there are desperate attempts being made by the democra cy upon all sides of us, iu the "county, as well as the state, to divide the party to let democrats into power, and we deem it our bounden duty to the Re publican party to come to its assist ance in any manner possible and as sist iu hurling back our common foe. Democrats are now and always have been enemies to Republicans, and will always remain so. One vote for a democrat is one vote to put republi cans out of power, and to put them in, find we are laughed at for doing the favor. Let us try as hard to hang to gether, as democrats try to divide us They seek to divide us only because they expect to make by so doing. ST. LOCIS AGAI\ST SOTA. JllWE- On October 19th, wo were publicly informed by telegram from St. Louis, that several prominent gentlemen from Iowa, and others of that city, as enibled in St. Louis and took the pre liminary steps for projecting a railroad from that city through central Iowa and southwestern Minnesota, to some point on the Northern Pacific in Da kota, and that the project met with much favor. We, a country newspa per, bad the audacity over two months ago to warn St. Paul of this identical movement, and no more attention was paid to it at the time, than was to our reference to the fact, that Chicago and Milwaukee would attempt the same movement, connecting at or near Far go, going around St. Paul and cutting off its trade. It is evident from tlfe fact of location and that the wheat in this region is wanted all the way down to the Gulf of Mexico, that New Or leans is ^interested in this road from St. Louis and will give it such help as its construction may require and will e a fatal stab at St. Paul and Minne sota in general, in diverting its west ern commerce to the South. That St. Paul with the encouragement it could have obtained, should have so woven its net of railroads as to have made this one now contemplated an unprof itable investment, is to plain to talk about. And now that its best friendly region of trade has been thus far sur rounded for a certain slaughter, we shall wait to see if it will get its back up at the eleventh hour to stoo it, as it is said it has done with tft road from Fargo south. If the Millers' Association cau so manipulate the lines of freights as to make it profitable to haul wheat from the interior over roads, and send their flour over roads east at all seasons of the year with great profit, and undis turbed by St. Paul, it has educated St. Louis to the extent of doing the same thing. So little flour or wheat is al lowed to go south by boat, it has made up its mind, comnieicially speaking, that it must get it by rail, and New Orleans being the head and front of the Southern market,| it" has deter mined to reach our wheat fields through St. Louis and Iowa in this manner. As the cotton climate of the South is detrimental to the growth of the best wheat, the supply demanded in that direction from the Northwest will in a short time, be equal to #hat of the east this being true, it will establish a competing wheat market in the in terest of the farmer, but it will estab lish it in Dakota, outside of Minneso ta, and to the injury of its only lake port at Duluth. If the wheat is stop ped about the centre of Dakota, then the Northern Pacificiwill lose the car riage to the lake, and Duluth its hand ling, and this will build up in Dakota a city to be to that territory what St Paul is to our own State, and Dakota has a sufficient amount of foresight to see it, and hence it desires the Fargo road south. Now we come to the action of the Chicago and Milwaukee roads in reaching the Northwest .*» the Vest of St. Paul, trad the blame St. Paul is casting upon them for assisting the Fargo road, and thereby cutting off one of its heretofore great benefacto ries but when it is seen that Chicago and Milwaukee are not designedly working against St. Paul, but to head off St. Louis in the very attempts it is now making to reach* the wheat and trade in the Northwest, it will be found that the Lake Michigan cities have not as much blood in their eyes against us as we might suppose. The prosperity of St. Paul is directly based upon the foundations of the Northern Pacific roads and the lake harbor al Duluth, and any attempt to ignore either will be to that extent an act of suicide, as we have plainly shown. The financial hot heads in New York city are developing considerable bitter ness toward President Villard, of the Northern Pacific, because he prepared himself for their schemes and refused to place the road in their hands to em barras or speculate from to his ruin and these wall streeters think that this shrewdness of the president is ful ly sufficient"for cause of removal, but the sensible stock-holders will, accord ing to the amount of good judgment they have on hand, oppose it. The tune which Wall street wishes to play, is to run the stock down by abuse of extravagance then bid it in, when this is done, to run it up and sell at a large profit, and so continue as often as they are in want of money,—this is Wall street. No particular nationality entitles a man to an office, above another. MINNESOTA LUMBER—QUB BU€. It may be a little surprising but it is a fact that the city of Quebec comes all the way west to the ports on Lake Superior for lumber, and that a large number of boats belonging to that city are now engaged in the lumber trade, finding the Minnesota lumber worth coming a long distance after. When there is sufficient communication open from the timber districts of the state with navigation, it is going to make considerable difference with the eastern in our favor, There can be no reason why we should be all wheat or nothing when we are able to diversify our industry, and there cau be no ne cessity for those to remain in idleness with capital at hand if wheat does not suit them. But our lumber and wheat is not the limit of our wealth, for they are of no more importance for capital to engage in than our unworked ores of iron, copper and silver abounding iu rich quantities, only awaiting to be introduced to the light of day and be lifted upon the wings of an industrious commerce to bring back a satislac&ory remuneration. WASHINGTON TERRITORY DEJECTED The hearts of our state are large enough to wish that ail the soil oi earth was in quality equal to our own, but our liberal spirit can do those far away from us no good in this ruspect only as we can divide with them the fruits we are yearly taking from it. We can easily imagine the disappoint ment of Washington Territory, in sending her best wheat here to our markets and learning upon its arrival that it cannot by any manner of means be placed any higher than our second grade, and not answering in purpose in that direction whatever where hard wheat of the second hard grade is de ired. And that wheat is of such a character that it cannot be mixed with any of our state grades without being detected upon sight. No wheat has yet been found in this country equal to our best, and it is not probable any ground able to produce it will be found. We can give that territory our sympa thy, but not our soil. SLAVES I\ BRAZIL. The abolitionist confederation of Brazil has broken out in a new spot, and has presented petitions to the leg islature of that nation, asking the manumission of 1,414,64S slaves said to be worth $500,000,090. The owners take the same position there which was assumed in this country, that set ting them free would destroy that much of the'r wealth, which neither they nor the country could endure without wholesale distruction. They are willing to sell out to the govern ment, but the government snys it is unable to purchase. To save a war like unto our late unpleasantness, the government might cut the matter short and bay them up, paying in bonds due in a hundred years to come The abolitionists claim they are not legal slaves, many of them having In dian mothers, and others are descend ants of contrabands imported after the slave trade was forbidden in 1830 The abolitionists there will find au tliority in this country for the position that the slaves held as such and born of Indian women are not slaves any more than Indians are slaves—our highest authority in this nation has held that the child born of an Indian woman, is an Indian still without re gard to whether its father was a white man or a* m-rn. IRELAND'S RELIEF. There is no logic in saying emigra tion cannot help the condition of af fairs in Ireland, because the popula tion has been cut down from 9,000,000 to 4,000,000 and yet trouble exists Emigration will afford relief if the poorest and those who are unable to get along there are brought away. It is the groans of the starving and the cries of the needy, which is constantly moving the hearts of the patriots in sympathy to red hot action, and keep ing up the disturbed feeling in that country. It only distresses the poor class to have the more wealthy come away that kind of emigration cannot in any event make things any better. Every poor man there who can man age a spot of land should, if genuine relief is wanted, be brought here and put upon it, and those who cannot do this should lie cared for by day's work. "POORFARGOr Fargo has made desperate struggles to get into notoriety as a city, but her progress in this respect has been, for the noise it has made, rather slow. It has now received a set back which has done it more liarn than the accom plishment of its object could possibly have done it good. It came to the conclusion that it ought to have a free delivery post office, that is carriers to take the mail around town to those to whom it was addressed. Recently a special agent was sent out there by the department, to learn if it was necessa ry, who reported back that as the streets generally had no name posted, few of the houses had numbers, and the mails arrive at such hours they could not be delivered until the next day, that the carrier system at present would not be desirable. Let Fargo now fix up and try it again. The earthquake in Asia Minor Is supposed to have killed some 20,000 people. Perhaps there is some one who has made the earthquake a study, and if so, will he please give us his reasons why it is that they are the most severe and of more frequent oc currence in the hot climates. The South in the United States has more of them than the North, while Cali fornia more than equals all the others in severity we have in this country we all know it, but why is it? NATIONAL BANKS MUST GO. The "United States desires to pay off its bonds, but the bankers do not want it done in fact they must wind up business if it insists upon doing so. Secretary Folger has asked the holders of $15,100,000 of bonds to bring them in and get their cash, ahd those hold ing $7,00^,000, of it say they cannot do so, for the reason that this sum has been deposited as security for National currency issued to them a* National Banks. All the Secretary can do in this emergency is let them keep $7,000,000, in bonds and refuse as he must under the law, to pay interest upon them after the day he has fixed to have them brought in for payment. It is a nice state or'affairs for creditors to refuse to bring in their bonds and permit the government to pay I hem when it has plenty of money on hand in its vaults. This mu*t eventually break up National Banks, as the bonds are being called in at the rate of $(0,000,000 a year. What to do to ayail this contraction and supply a basis for circulation is becoming a serious question. But little confi dence could be placed in currency is sued upon the bonds of a state, as they have no fixed cash value in the mar ket that could 1M« depended upon to any great extent. That financier who favors the using of English consols as a bankiug basis, must have an air hole in the top of his head leaking wind. When we are ready to place ourselves that far into British hand it will be nearly time for Columbia to take of her American cap and wit.'i it make a nest for England's lion and to say to the American eagle come down from your giddy hight proud bird, king of the air, and let us trail your plumage in the dust of disgrace. The stars and stripes could never move on such a breeze. WEATHER IN ADVANCE FOS FARM ERS. There is no question but what the antics of the weather can be foretold to the world at large, and that farmers as well as others cau be so put upon track of it as to be enabled at all times to get their crops out of the way of any weather which may injure them. Alva H. Doan, a clerk in one of the departments at Washington, has in vented the process. Our signal service with its telegrams to all parts of the United States, learns in advance what the weather is going to be now this inventor has for the benefit of the farmers, got ten up a system of flags to be hung out upon mail trains passing through the country, telling of the weather to-morrow and next day. The white flag means clear blue, fair red, doubtful black, stormy. The fu ture of the weather to be obtained from Washington in a telegram by the train before starting into the country, and the farmers can see the flags as the train passes. LAND GOBBLERS ARE WATCHED. The commissioner of the General Land office at Washington has but recently opened his eyes to the cor rect principles of our land system, and now after a quarter of a century of land stealing, and gobbling by the corporations and rich individual land speculators, the commissioner has concluded to closely watch the method by which they under the preemption and homestead laws, are acquiring such vast tracts of lands in one body. That this land is acquired in the most fraudulent manner, and by the darkest sort of perjury, all are well advised and that it prevents the poor man, for whom it was solely intended, from obtaining small tracts in the best lo calities upon which to make a perma nent home, is a self evident prop osition. Aud if the land cruisers are looked after, and kept at a distance, and the land permitted to go when it should, a lasting benefit to the poor man will be given. The Pioneer Press against the State The Pioneer Press has long deserta tions upon foreign affairs it wheels around upon the duties of the national government in many abstract rela tions, it has became a worn out idealist regarding the movemeutsin Mormon dom, it sniffs the refreshing breezes on the Pacific slope, it assisted Ohio in running its campaign to defeat, and in fact it does most anything and every thing in general in starched up column and a half editorals excepting telling U3 abont Minnesota, its commerce its mineral resources, its harbor and river improvements, condition of the people of the stat" on the untamed frontier, their advantages, disadvantages, and what can be done to encourage and promote the interests of the farmers in connection with the wheat question We do not wish to be understood as intimating that the above enumera tion covers all which the greatest and richest endowed paper in our state has grossly neglected formany years as the list contains but a few of those which are of great importance to our successful progress. It ft located in a favorable spot in our largest city living off of the industry of the people at large within our borders, and much good in return for this home support has been expected from the interior but nothing of the kind has or is being realized. It has never been found to be the leader in anything which has been of interest to the state, but It has given the hard working man from its lofty summit of high toned living the cold shoulder sufficient to supply him for the balance of his natural life. Strike St. Paul and Minneapolis, from its head, and no one would ever think that the matter to be found in it, was put together in the state of Minnesota, unless there was a bond job on hand in which it had a hundred thousand or two Coming in firojn those whose bard earnings go to pay it. That paper takes its texts from the amount of plunder it can get for enter ing into political contests when it has no more effect among the intelligent classes, than the howling wind upon a leafless tree firmly rooted to the soil The poor .man's cause is as unknown to its columns as if its papers were from one year to another entire blanks untouched by printers ink. This icy indifference may be all the home public have a right to expect from such a pretend red source of general good, but we cannot see it in that light. If this treatment of the people of the tate with such supreme contempt, is filling its coffers wiili gold to ihe sat isfaction of its high estate, it will con tinue on for life, but if its stock should in an unsuspecting moment i o down below pur, it can trace its loss to its cold blooded slaughter of the states best interests and come down to a level Willi the poor it lias never prin ted a line to assist. FIVE YEARS AND A FINE. James McGauvern, and Charles Chambers, have been sent to the peni tentiary for five years each, for coun ters ting half dollars, and have besides the term of imprisonment, being fined in a sum which cannot be paid in the kind they were getting up, and it may lie doubtful if they ever get square with the world after they are out. It is easy enough to make the couuterfit money, but it has been rather difficult for the manufacturers to avoid that brick building over at Stillwater with a high wall around it. They were merely going to make living until the times were better, and then they were going to reform. They can calculate that tney have struck it rich now they will have time to each learn two good trades, all during which they are sure of having a living and can in the meantime reform, in this way they can accomplish as much as if they were out. True Nationalism. Blue Earth City Post: While in St. Pauion Friday last we made a call on Gov. Hubbard, who doesn't seem to be very much worried over the "Bierman still hunt" campaign. The State of Minnesota has one of the best chief executives that ever governed commonwealth, and she has no reason to desire a change, for the simple reason that his opponent is a native of a particular foreign country. Clan nishness should be wiped out American politics. Minnesota largely Republican Bierman is a rad ical Democrat, and his claim is not based upon the grounds of iiis being an abler man than L. F. Hubbard, or upon the fact that has always been true to bourbon Democracy, but that he is a Norwegian by birth, and there fore is entitled to the Scandinavian vote of the State. No Norwegian German or foreigner of any kind has a right to say one word upon the poli tics of this state. As soon as they se cure the right to .vote, they are longer foreigners, but endowed with all the rights and priviliges of—and are American citizens. The question of birth should not enter into Ameri can politics beyond the point made by the constitution of the United States and is only kept up by a set of ricky politicians who hope to ride into power upon the cry of "Give the Norwegians a show!" "Give the Germans chance!" We say give the man chance according to his ability, in tegrity and political record, whether he be born in Halifax or Minnesota Norway or France, Germany or Africa Our support of Governor Hubbard rises above clannishness. Our vote and our influence are given him from higher motives. We give it to him as an American citizen, who in the hour of national need, buckled on the sword and proved his loyalty on many a hard fought battle field, be cause he has filled with honor and ability every position to which he has been called. We support Fred Von Baumbach for secretary of state not because he is a German, but because he is a capable and honest Republican we give our hearty support to Charles Kittelson not because he was born sight of the towering fields or the pleasant valleys of Norway, but be cause we have known him for years as a true, loyal American citizen— loyal to his country and the great Re publican party, and a faithful and efficient public officer. Mark H. Dunnell ex-Congressman from the First district, is smiling around after the office of Register of the U. S. Land office at Aberdeen It looks as if this was a small come down the hill of office holding, ii\ the place of going up but it is no worse than was done by Horace Austin, who was Gov. for two terms, and then was 2nd Assistant, Auditor at Washington, then graded to the United States Land office at Fargo. W. R. Marshall was Gov. for two terms, aud come down to railroad commissioner, from thence to detective of the U. S. Land office at Duluth. Alex Ramsey come down from two terms as Goy. and two terms in U. S. Senate, to chairman of Board of Registration at Salt Lake,— Utah. Anything to say in office. Other parties have concluded they wanted a portion of the, iron ore at Lake Vermillion, and to enable them to get it, thej' are proposing to run a road from Grand Marias, on Lake Su perior, west to the mine. A short time since, no one cared for the ore, but now all want a slice. We have just received the first issue of the Duluth Sunday Times, and must say, it contains all the elements of a first class weekly paper. If the people try as hard to support it ad its editors have to get it up, it will be a success in tbe laud. We waat it. TROUBLE IN ARKANSAS The state of Arkansas is now hav ing trouble with its colored people, of a kind which may prove somewhat disatrious to its cotton ihterestH. As everything uppermost .here among the fanners is wheat, KO it is in a cor responding degree down there, cotton. W. Niles who has had considerable sympathy for the colored folks in that state, has addressed a letter to U. S. Attorney General at Washington, to learn if the government could not as isl them in having an equal show there for life and prosperity with the whites, and is answered by the Attor yGe'i. tliu the grievances which re being wiiTei'ed by the eoinrc.l man are imyond the reach of the govern ment of (he U. S. to remedy, and that e'.ief can only come from the state. It is said I hat Mr. Niles has advised the colored line to leave the state. The move will be so great it is thought as to seriously effect the cotton crop another year, not only in that state but iu others. The origin oft lie oittci feeling in the South against colored men, is that they are naturally in clined to vote the Republican ticket, and th is is the high crime and mis demeanor they are presented, and prosecuted for whenever their is the least opportunity for it. It has en en -ered a feeling of ill will, to which the South can never reconcile itelf, and over which there can be no union in peace. One is a bitter democrat, the other a bitter republican, neither will give way, but both will light, and if their is to be peace, one must emi grate froin tlie other. There is a fine opportunity down at Texarkano, one-half of which is in Arkansas and the other haif in Texa for a shot-gun settlement. Those who laid out the city, supposed they had a good title to tiie laud, but the title hunters, In digging down into the foundation, ascertained that some 2o0 acres on the Arkansas side belonged to the Kcrby's. This was denied by Smith, who appeared upou the scene of action by showing he owned it unr der a grant from the state, and now requests the owners of the brick blocks to move hence, or pay his price for the lots. It is quite questionable if his head will hold its natural position up on his long stav in that citv. What we ought to establish at the next election is, that we all belong to one nation, without regard to where we were born, and that we will vote with the same point in view. Scratching a man 011 your ticket af ter he has been nominated, is scratch ing your Republican principles and party far more than scratching the nominee. If Bierman continues the still hunt until he is elected Governor of Minne sota, he will never come out of the woods. Democrats never vote for Republi cans,consequently Republicans should not vote for Democrats. Democrats will ask us to scratch our ticket, but they will be sure to vote their's straight. A canoe expedition has been formed to explore the Everglades of Florida, a dark timbered swamp, which from its center sends up a vast volume of smoke, the cause of which is unknown, and the tract is so dark and dismal no one has thus far had the pluck to ven ture far enough into it, to know what there is there, aside from all sorts of reptiles which threaten to swallow all invaders. The canoes are to be six in number four men to each one with old naval and army officers, and several negroes making up the com pany, who propose to wade in, and see what that heretofore unknown re gion contains. The New Orleans Times Democrat, commands the ex pedition, and is bound to do some thing for the benefit of science, by let ting day light into the darkness of this trackless swamp. That paper probably has several extra reporters it has no use for and will send them out to tame the man eating alligator. The President has already com menced gathering up material for his message on the assembling of Congress in December next. Anyone having suggestions to make can submit tlieni, and the President will either consider tlieni, or throw them into the waste basket. .Little Falls Transcript: An Ameri can Eagle was taken Out on the Little Falls & Dakota road a few days ago by P. Lydee- who has had charge of Hill's lumber camp at Sullivan lake, on upper Platte this summer. The bird was a fine specimen of his species and the owner holds its above price. It was caught in June last and when only a few weeks old it measured five and one half feet from tip to tip of wings. It is now as large as an old goose and will probably continue to grow awhile yet. This is the only genuine eagle we have seen produced here, and believe it is a rare curiosity to most people in this section. Several daughters of the noblest families in Russia, have been arrested at the Maria Institute, for being sup posed Nihilists. Seizures of many treasonable pamphlets and tracts were made at the same time. This will af ford an opportunity for seeing if the noblest families have sufficient influ ence to rescue their daughters from the dungeons into which they have been thrown. President Villard, of the Northern Pacific, had business in his eye when he arranged the free excursion from St. Paul to the Pacific coast as one of the results of it, he has sold tracts of land along his line to different per sons in Europe, to the aggregate amount of 2,000,000 acres.
