WASHINGTON, Oct. 27.—A final appeal
to the Democratic cluba in the United
States ha» been sent out from the na
tional headquarters of the clubs in this
city. It is nuueti bv Chauncey F. Black.
jrefcioont cthe national association of
IVvH o r.ic dul-a, anl ie as follows*.
i*a fr yis the verdict of the ballot
box will determine whether trie people
will elect resMe-ut of their choice, or
wilt th^r th»: cjllossial contributions of
the corrupt iuonoj-olies and trusts can
nullify fre? *uffviii?e and buy another
le&re of i»owerfor tue Republican party.
It is known that the enemies of the
Democracy and ti»e people have lost all
hope of electing the cptnlidate
of iiip Jliaueapoliii couvtfiiLion by
appeals to reason and fair election
yiethoda, and have determined upon the
§lan of campaign wmch contemplate®
|he purchase of the presidency.
Their plan include not only the lejfit
linate work of oiling their party vote,
lrat also of bribing electors to refrain
from registeiing and to stay away from
the polls and the expenditure of millions
*f dollars for the direct purchase of
totes on election day. It is to counter-
act this attempted debauchery of the
fluff rage that the national Democratic
fommitte* appeals to patriotic citizens
for aid. Money ie needed to get out the
|eniocratic votes, to have watchers at
the polls to prevent friiuda, and for tak
ing each legitimate and proper steps as
Biay be necessary to preserve the purity
of the ballot.
Relying upon the people along the
national association of Democratic clubs
fca ving no office holders to assess and no
foonopolies to bargain with, it therefore
fnakes this appeal to every Democrat, no
fcatter what his circumstances may be,
Jl to give the national committee such
$«Hfertimaiy aid aa it« «aa*tar«. No ram,
«owever snmll, will be refused. S«nd

Country when no fair is being held. He
adds: '"It is certain, however, that at
the present moment America is the most
prosperous country in the world, despite
tur assertions that protection is ruinous,
jf I had been an American mys-lf I
(hould have advocated protection. The
proof of the pudding is in the eating,
protection pudding has provided a more
plentiful meal for Americans than free
trade provides for us."

PIERRE, S. D.,Oct. 27.—The chances
are now .hat South Dakota will not be
able to clear up the muddle that con
fronts her in the matter of ballots print
ed according to the new ballot law.
Tuesday the secretary of state accepted
the resignation of Wood, one of the
Democratic nominees for congress. Half
of the ballots were printed when the
resignation was accepted and now they
will have to be reprinted. The law re
quires that the ballots shall be in the
hands of the county auditors at least
ten days before election. Even now the
new ballots could be printed by that
time, but the Prohibitionists have ap
plied for a writ of certiorari to compel
the secretary of state to show cause why
he refuses to put the Prohibs on the of
ficial ballot. The order is returnable
on Thursday, and if they win the case
the names will have to be printed on
the tickets. Thus it will be a physical
impossibility to have the ballots printed
in the time allowed by law.

Atlnntic ocean with wreckage is attested
by the masters of incoming eteamers

unmintMkable sigus in torn sails, broken

desperate battles with tremendous seas
and hurricanes. Several big passenger
steamers which have arrived ran into
