It is the duty of every elector to cast his ballot at each election. The rizht to vote is coupled with the obligation to vote right: Every citizen should consiJerhimself a commit- tee of one, duly appointed, and morally bound to place his own ballot In the box, aud to see that his Republican neighbor votes also. There Is little use in pro less- lug principles unless we sustain them with our ballots. The'stay-at-homes are tbe ones who bring political disaster. Delinquency in depositing ballots results in bad government, precisely as delin- quency in paying taxes, results in an Im- poverished .treasury. A good citizen con- siders it as much his.duty to vote, as to pay taxes, and taxes are made lighter by electing honest men to office. Our opponents are sleepless; .they are flooding the State with monstrousiabrlca- tions, about our candidates, prepared for campaign purposes. Driven to despera- tion by exposure and fear of expulsion, every artifice is used to maintain control of the people's money and the'vast patron- age ol the appointing power. Beware ot these in-siduous calumnies; of apathy in consin. The delegates represented the people. They were earnest, honest, able men, determined to promote the best in- ternals of the State by nominating one of the strongest tickets ever presented. Men of spotless integrity; honest, taithful and capable were selected. Hon. HARRISON LuDrsoTos was nomin- ated for Governor by. acclamation, with the greatest demonstrations of enthusiasm. He is a native of New York but has re- sided in Milwaukee for 33 years, and is serving that prosperous city as Mayor. He is an honest man, an officer of groat executive ability and unbounded personal popularity. Mayor Luiusems is one of the heaviest lumber manufacturers in the West, and owns a farm near Milwaukee, well stocked with choice cattle. He is heartily iu sympathy 'with the agricul- tural and manufacturing interests, and has clear comprehensive views on all matters of public concern, and an honest scorn of intrigue and trickery. Though a Republican, he impartially represents the whole people, and has been three times elected Mayor of Milwaukee, which is overwhelmingly Democratic. Ho is the most popular man in his city, which is "gfea'tly'ind'ebted-to-hmY for Trf-se-co-tinsel; in the management of municipal affairs; and this nomination for Governor by acclamation is evidence of tha high esteem in which he is held by the Repub- licans of the entire State. An old pioneer of character and position; a man of capacity and courage; proud of bis State, jealous of her good name und his own honor; one whodemands a rigid and strict accountability in public mailers, his ad- ministration of State affairs will bo one of the most successful and popular ever known. Hon. HEXRY L. EATON, of Kichland, is u farmer and a good one. He has been in 'both branches of the Legislature and as President 'par tern of the Senate, displayed so much ability for the position thiit he was properly nominated for Lieutenant- Goveruor that he might be permanent President of that .-body. He is a good parliamentarian, being prompt and the man for the place. HANS B. WAKSJER, of. Pierce, was born in Norway and has resided in this State since 1849. He is a farmer, also, and served in.the Union army, where he was wounded, then .captured and confined in Libby Prison. He. is now serving his as Clerk of Pierce County, and he has the reputation of being the best Clerk in the .State. He reminds one of Col HAKS HECK that Norwegian whose name Is always mentioned with voted by'.ho town aod the nroouut actually wild for the men.

I, of course, acquiesced in .the ar- rangement. That in pursuance of that arrangement and agreement, the quota of said town.'was filled by us. To those re- cruits who were residents of the town ol Cottage Grove, Gov. TAYLOR disbursing the moneys, paid the sum of two hundred dollars each; to other nicruils, who were not residents f the :own of Cottage Qrove, Gov, TAYLOH, with two or three exceptions, paid not to exceed one hun- dred. and .in amounts ranging from one hundred to one hundred and fifty dollars. That the amount of money made by us in filling th quota of said by paying short bounty ivs above stated, was between (our and five hundred dollars, which amount was equally divided between us That in all cases where receipts were taken from said recruits for the monej paid to them, each of the recruits were re quired by Gov. TAYLOK to sign a rcceip for the full sum of Two Hundred Dollars instead of a receipt for the amount actu ally paid' to each recruit What I state'" to Capt.

STATE Or WISCONSIN, 1 DANK COUHTY.' H. L. DEXTER G. HARRIS, of Avoca, one of the soldiers who -wras-accredlted to Cottage Grove, to whom Col. FARR refers, con- firms the truth of FARR'S statement, with the following lotter and affidavit: AVCCA, Wis., Sept. 23, 1875. EEITORS STATIC I have read in your paper, u. history of the Cottage Grore bounty business, and it reminds me of. the fact that I enlisted as a soldier and .was credited to that town. I hand you affidavit of the facts in my case. It. seems that there was some specula- tion i the matter on the part of the agent, who was Chairman of the Board; thai the town, tuppoted I wat receivieg. I only got ?150. I think the good people of the town ought to compel their agent, be. be high or low, to pay me all tbe money he got from the town on my re- is a history of the Cot- tage Grove bounty transaction. Ro.denial of the truth of these statements has been made by Gov. TAYLOR. His organs vir- tually admit their truth, and only answer 'by abusing personally the witnesses. No stronger case could be made out. It con- victs Gov. TAYLOR of making money out of his town, when acting as its official agent, in obtaining soldiers for the town lor to each, 'and charging to the town, f200.00; and putting over thus made, into bis own pocket The evidence of these lacts, as will be seen, is complete. A man that will thus save moncy-to 'offi- cially for his town, is an unsafe man to occupy the Executive Chair of Wiscon- sin. This individual samng at the ex- pense of tbe people, is not wanted in a Gov- ernor? Let voters ponder well .these facts! And on the 2d of November next, render their verdict. __ You mav hear from me again. 'D. G. HARRIS. Look at Facts and When a farmer builds a barn at a cost he does not deem his property di- minished.. He has the barn, and deems it worth what it cost So of State affairs. When money is paid out for permanent improvements, such as putting iip build- incs for our State Institutions, it is not a decrease of State property: but it' is put. ting money to a most excellent use.

CARTER'S charges against Gov TAYLOR, and among other things occurs the following statement: "The three hired all substitutes and paid all bounties voted by the town." The above :statement-.
