Field and Nha Lysio Tho result in this the Ith congressional District. It is a Surprise to All a Lio Only looked on Tho political complexion of Tho District and saw cig life Republican counties Vith 4,000 Republican majority Over All at the election in 1880. But to those who know what an untiring worker zealous or a Arizti and enthusiastic advocate of Tho rights of labor and productive Industry the anti monopoly candidate. Flon. A. It. Weller was the result is not so unaccountable. Welle is elected by about 1,000 majority he curries his own town Jand county by to 20 every township in his county but two. And Nooi them he loses by -1 majority Only live of the eight counties in Tho Dis riot and Losoya one of Tho three by duly 110 votes and one of the other two by 07. Ami Tho other by 310. One of the prominent politicians in the state says welter s Victory Over updo Gray to the most remarkable Triumph Ever achieved in a congressional District to realize the full extent Al Tho Victory it is necessary to look a Little at the nature of the difficulties of to overcome. It. The District was strongly Republican and in half of Tho National party had no organization at lilt time Weller was nominated. 2nd. Of our 80 papers in Tho District but two supported or. Welter until within a few Days of his election. 3rd. All the Republican and one of Tho leading Democrat papers opposed air. Weller and most of them made a bitter personal onslaught on the National candidate sporting to a die vilest epithets malicious false hoods and shameful caricatures the spite or envy could invent 4-th. Updegraff was the attorney of that great and powerful corporation the Chicago Milwaukee & it. R. Which runs through seven o the eight counties of Tho District and which wielded All its vat Pooi 8 to elect Tho favorite attorney. 5th. Judge Noble up Egnatt s Law partner is Oue of the leading men of the democratic party in Tho District and of course did All he could manipulate that organization in the interest of his partner and Friend. Ith. Updegraff himself had nip la Means to furnish Tho sinews of War and whatever to desired in a Lihan Cial Way was at hand from both the great corporation he served and his Ohui s 1. 1j. Henderson a two Pei cent barrel. 7th Tho members of the National party save a few were either unable or unwilling to furnish Means to carry on what seemed to Many of them a to Light and have not 1 think contributed to exceed $101 toward the necessary expenses of the Campaign such As providing for the Sjoros or More speakers and distributing tens of thousands of documents. Tho above Are a few of. Tho difficulties that Mot or. Weller when he looked Tho District Over and took of his coat for the fight. Firmly believing that Tho elements of Success Lay in an Appouh to Tho conscience sad reason of the people and that Tho principles represented by his candidacy wore Invulnerable when rightly presented to the Labouring and Industrial classes a score of speakers it to at once engaged to canvass every Nook and Corner of the District and at every Point to Challenge the monopoly party to bring out their Best speaker and jointly discuss the living Issue. Or. Weller the Plain and unpretentious Farmer candidate boldly challenged. The polished and eloquent lawyer candidate to a Joi it Carina tvs of the District which Otter ifs declined. It was renewed by the congressional committee Wajih an additional offer of s100 to or. Updegraff if he would consent to four joint discussions which also was declined. 1 Tho speakers began to flow into Tho District or. Wellor Cook the stump and with vigor advocated the cause of National and personal Liberty. Documents began to fall among the people like Enow lakes on Tho Mountain top an interest was awakened republicans came to hear and were converted to Tho gospel no class labor shall have the refusal of Updegraff and his friends to meet Tho anti monopolists in Adobato led thousands to attend our me6tinga, to learn that the doctrines were that the monopolists shunned discussion of and when they did hear them boat of no longer wondered that or Updegraff did not Earo to face his congressional record whore every vote had been Given to class interests and labor and Industry scorned and neglected. The fires of indignation against the monopoly party and it3 representations thus kindled swept from county to county until the red Glare and intense heat aroused the slumbering monopolists but Only in time for them to witness the flame already climbing the pillars of their Citadel and forcing them to leave it pud Tako to the Woods. They awoke to see county after county dip from their grasp and their boasted 8,000 majority melting away like Snow before a sum Ner Sun. The result i have already 1,000 majority for Weller. It is Gratifying to know it is not a party but a people s Triumph. Republican Fayette win Sheik Mitchel Floyd Oins with Greenback Howard and democratic Clayton and Alla Makee in making up the majorities thus showing that or. Weller was the a Peop e s Man being supported by Democrat Republican and National party advocates. And thus to have the people s Triumph. Fifty live speeches in this District permits me to sign myself yours truly observer pm Elg to tries. There is a Bracking Breeze when the Small boy and his hither come to blows1.
