The ootopus ot protection, fattened by tbitty years of Republican legislation dies bard, but the people bave condemned tbe system and it moat go, in apite o! the Gormane, Bricee, Marpbye, Smiths Add others masquerading as Democrats • Tbe sugar eobedole ot tbe senate bi'J, in spite ot Us deficiencies, gives tbe trust less protection than any measure that has bsen passed during tbe thirty .yearn tbe Republican party has been legislating in its interests. By tbe new tariff bill tbe people wil bave untaxed wool and lumber and Ibe duties on coal and iron bave been re- reduced almost one-half^ The consumers will be greatly benefited by these redactions, wbiob will greatly reduce tbe cos ot living. ' Tbe MoKinley bill gave the ragar trust a protective duty ot one-bait a osni • pound and two cents a pound bounty while tbe senate bill gives but one-fifth of a cent a pound protection and tbe bounty is repealed. No wonder tbe trust agents would bave preferred to retain the Mo- Kinley bill on tbe statute books.

We are imt tt*hou«d of oor prefsreoose either, wwe not nominated, After thirty years ot HepubUpan (or the "protection" of tnonopolUtS, tbd Wop of attdtnftyft to* the trusts which this legislation hae brought into being, was able to defeat Borne ot the legislation tor the benefit ot the people which their representatives desired to enact into law. Bnt the enter * lug wedge baa been driven, a tod with a senate composed ot honest and courageous representatives ot the people, as are the Demooratio members of the house ot representatives, the fall frnitinn ot the Work tor tariff reform will be hOdom- plisbed. The difficulty which a genuine tariff refotm measure encountered is passing through the senate simply illustrates the power behind which the trusts and protected interests are intrenched after thirty years ot Republican protection The agents of the monopolists, comprising nearly the entire Republican side of the house of lords snd tour or five Democrats, were enabled to defeat the legis lation the people had asked for, but the house Democrats did their full duty and when the people arise in their mnjesty and throw tbe monopolists out of the senate the full measure of reform can be accomplished, One thing the American people have learned from the result ot tbe tariff discussion in the senate and that is that "protection" is a fraud; that when a government departs from tbe idea of taxation for revenue only that moment the door ot bargains' and corruption is opened and representatives of the people whose aim should be the framing of a measure in tbe interests of the whole country, consult only their own private interests and those ot their friends. Thus Murphy must have collars and onffs protected and soon ad infinitnm ad nauseam. The only way to escape from these evils is throngb the Demooratio doctrine of a tariff levied solely for the purpose of revenue only. True Democracy. Governor Mathews was selected permanent chairman of the Demooratio state convention of Indiana last Wednes day. His speech was on« of exceptional strength. He arraigned the Republican administration for tbe widespread; business depression and said the Republican press was in a measure responsible, for it bad done nothing for the past year but howl "calamity." In speaking ol the work of congress us said: "One by one the pledges are being redeemed through the heroic efforts of oor representatives in congress. Tte iniquitous and unjust federal election law hae fallen beneath bur steady blow; tbe promise to repeal tbe silver purchasing clause ot tbe Sherman act has been fulfilled, and tbe belief enacted into law that no special or privileged class ot property shall escape its just share of the burden of tax, even though it be the hitherto boarded and sacred greenback or national currency. Tbe struggle must be brave and earnest, for tbe fiercest opposition is to be encountered all along the • line. Beige has baen laid to tbe stronghold ol Republicanism, tbe protective tariff, and tbe day of a broad commercial freedom is surely dawning upon us. Step by step we fight our way, camping on every vantage ground until we shall stand amid tbe purpling heights ot victory and sue cess achieved. We will not be content to rest upon tbe mountain and look into Ibe promised land, but will enter in and ask full possession and leave it as a blsseec heritage tp pur children. Every poini gained is au advance not alone for today but for the future ot tbe country. There must be no backward step; the pry is forward. We may Dot in the present measure and through the present con gross secure all that may be'desired; bat it i* true just as sure au night shall (ol low tbe day that all legislation the,! may give relief in the direction of true tarif reform is to remain upon the statutes fixed and secure. No grander opportu nity WM ever presented to a political party than is placed within tbe reach ot the Demooratio parly. We snallearnest- ly oppose and bravely meet an open honest foe, who by inheritance and teach iug may never bays been with, of or (or us. But those who, marching under Ibe bMmsrf of Democracy, abandoning Democratic principles and forgetting tbe •acred Pause of the people, would place obstacles in Ibe way by localizing' great national truths of government, let them beware the indignation p( an pwty.

The last hope for anything like an average crop of Corn for Ihe state ot towa has long passed away, Later returns from every part ot the state eteadi- y decrease the average per dent of yeald. Steadily it has been Crawling down from 107 in July to 33£. Reports kept being circulated that this or that ocslity had a good crop but npon investigation it turns out that the outlook la about the same in all ths counties. Conditions have been about the same and the crop here iu Carroll county is juet about an average ot what it is all over the state. The most conservative place the average far below 83^ and say that 10 to 20 per cent would be nearer to the truth. Tbe estimate tor the United States is placed at 50 per cent. While tbie is discouraging enough for us the general condition ot the market will be held in check, for tbe foreign crop is larger than it has been' for years. The London Times estimates the United Kingdom barley crop at 76,296,000 bushels against 65,745,000 last year. Tbe oat crop at 42 bushels per acre with a total yield ot 189,000,000 against 168,000,000 last year. The wheat crop ia estimated at 57,000,000 bushels, a large increase over last year. France reports excellent crops, and reports from Barsia, Hungary and Germany are to the effect that the yield is above the average. Austria, Bulgaria and Sweden report a shortage in the rye crop. The Argentine Republic, a great grain producing country, has a crop of 80,000,000 bushels of wheat, which is away above the domestic consumption and leaves a large volume (or export from that country. Wheat ia selling for lees than earn in tbe United States and Enrope and many farmers are feeding their stock with it with quite satisfactory results. It is certain that the, price of farm products will advance by reason of a failure in tbe domestic crop, but tbe advance will be held within reasonable bounds by the supply abroad available tor export. . ' Freight Bates. Tbe railroads of the state have joined together demanding ot the railroad commission an advance in local ratts.. Tbe commission will" meet the representatives of these companies next Tuesday when it will be determined it an advance is necessary. The jobbers of the state see in this tbe destruction of their interests and bave formed local association* all over the state, and bave secured attorneys and propose to make a fight against the demands ot these companies. All of the larger cities will be represented at this meeting Tuesday. Should the commission decide to accede to tbe demands of tbe railroads it will not only tend to kill off local jobbing bouses, bat it will work a great injustice to the farmers of the state. Tbie year a large amount of corn, bay and all kinds of teed will have to be abipped from one part of tbe state to another and on this tbe consumer will bave to pa* /an increased freight tariff. Of all tbe seasons Iowa ever bad this ia tbe worst one' (or tbe railroad companies to make snob a tmand. The people of this state bave a heavy burden to carry without tbe railroads levying additional burdens on us and we trait the oomnusaionen will ee* that it i* not don*. Tbe tariff bill as it came from tbe senate op the 3d of July waa accepted by Ibe bouse Monday and ia now in tbe bands of the president awaiting bie signature io become a Uw. The bill will upon receiving the president's signature go 'into immediate effect and then tbe country will have a better tariff law than it has bad (or eome yean. The fight between tbe conferees of Ibe house and the senate WM a memorable one, ia whit h the house was supported by tbe whole Democrat io party, the president and 1 the press, bat it was compelled to surrender conditionally. It accepted Ibe bill aa .was molded by a handful of Demo. ora^Repnblioans, vho sacrificed the great prineiplea of tariff leforni for local and personal interacts. The bill, wbiob abould have bean national in its character, was looaUied and la sous respeota emaoks too much of (ormer Republican legation to me*! tbs demands of tbe party that was pledged to tariff refpra*.

Under them they have grown rich and aggressive, the great sugar trust, the offspring ot Republican legislation, out- toppled all others and proved more powerful in the senate than the millions ot honest Democrats who were clamoring tor the redemption ot party pledges. While the great work which the Dem- ooratio party was commissioned to perform has been only partially accomplished tbe Work will go on. Honest Democrats will be mote loyal to the cause than ever before. Tbey now more ciearly realize that it is iitamona legislation which takes money from the many tot the few than eVer before. When Gorman and Brice mold tariff bills, assisted by all the Republicans of the senate, it is not surprising ^ that the cause of tbe people suffers defeat. One sure thing however, the present bill has enough good in it to taaoh the lesson the party has baen contending tor Bod it will only be a question of a ehort time until snoli monopolistic representatives as these will Had that their golden fetters will fail to longer enslave the people. Unconditional surrender at the ballot box should be tbe watchword of the masses against the plutocrats who bave tor too long manipulated the laws ot our land to fill,their coffers with gold. Ouward should be our cry. Tbe great cause of the people will take no backward etep. ' ' Good Words. ! Sac Democrat. The judicial candidates are well known throughout this district and therefore need no introduction from us. They are both able, upright and industrious men, as good timber to make judges of as can be found in the state. : 'Judge Goldsmith has filled tbe position for the past four years. That he has done BO'with ability and credit is conceded by all. It is said, that he has done more work with a lower percentage of appeals taken, than any judge in the state. He has a warm place in the regards of the people, and the bar find in him a judge who is at once firm, courteous, and thoughtful to the rights of each. /The press of tbe district baa been profits 'in its praisa ot htm and say that he is the "right man in the righ place." Hoa. Myron W. Bsaoh, of OarroU, ia one of tbe hardest worked attorneys in tbe district, a perfect gentleman, and would make a judge equal in every respect to Judge Goldsmith. As a lawyer and a citizen he has made a great growth in the last few years. He ia industrious to ascertain the rights involved in every cose be is connected with, and will then stand up for those rights with'all tbe tenacity'and vigor that 'can be brought to bear. The voters ot this district will make no mistake if they elect him one of their judges. ' : A New Novelist. Up to the present George du Maurier night have been called an artist-author. Since the publication of his last etory, ' "Trilby,'' however, he is better called author-artist. High as was hi* distinction previously as au artist, he will undoubtedly henceforth be better known as a novel writer. Attention was at ouoe drawn to him when two years ago his first story, "Peter Ibbetson," appeared as a modest magazine serial. Those who wore familiar with his. admirable society satires in the form of pictures in the periodicals doubted whether a man could at ouoe bo a successful artist and a novelist But "Peter Ibbetsou" bad a quality so fresh, so magnetic and altogether pleasurable that the question answered itself. Hero wag, a now vein of fiction that seemed promising Tbe story of "Trilby" makes tho reader wish Du Maurier had begun to write novels in the first place instead of spending two-thirds of bis life in making comic illustrations for the picture papers. Tho strange part of it hi that thi* Englishman, who i* half French, did not toko up authorship till bo was 67 year*, old. "Peter Ibbetsou" was tho first thing bo over wrote, and it wa* au immediate auooeia. It disprove* the old dictum that men oaunot take up new occupation* Buooa**fully after thoir youth i* gone; There U no instance on record, however, where au individual began story writing so late iu life a*Du Maurier ha* done and succeeded in it George Eliot wa* only 80 when *ho began novel writing.

The editor in chief of the Chicago Tribuno has devised a scheme which he believes will go far to prevent railroad strikes in future. He says a permanent pension fund should be provided for the retirement on half pay of all railroad employees after they have been in the service a given number of years. The pension •would also be paid to those Who became disabled in the company's service. To raise the fund he would tax the earnings of each railway employee 2 per cent a year and the total earnings of the co;upittiy 1 per cent n year. Mr. Medill thinks this plan would knit together the interests of the railroads and their men no firmly that these interests Would be practically one, as they are, but then nil would be able to see that they are one. The unique feature of the Medill plan is that its author would have the arrangement compulsory. He suggests that congress make a law embracing the provisions named. Then all railway companies in the country would have to abide by it. The Tribune editor thinks the public is* so dependent on the railways that such a general law is demanded. The question whether such pensioning of railway employees should be done by law is tho point about Which there is difference of opinion. Germany has such pensions, but in Germany the roads are largely owned by the government. The Pennsylvania company has already a pension system something like the one outlined by Mr. Medill, and it works well, but the system is altogether voluntary. Why could not railway corporations and their employees adopt the pension,system without any law? 'Doubtful Rumors. Some time since the story was telegraphed over the Union that the gentle and beautiful Infanta Eulalie was living in poverty and obscurity iu London. The truth was that she was not in London at all and not in poverty anywhere. It is most unfortunate that conscienceless knaves, miscalled correspondents, hatfjt tfio «owspaper profession and send out wild and lying reports on any subject that strikes their fancy. Sometimes there is a thread of basis for their Story; often not even that. If the story of tho loss of tho Walter Wellman polar expedition should turn out to be false, there is hardly any punishment severe enough for the liars who forged the tale. If the anguish they caused the wife and family of Wellman and the friends of the other explorers counted for nothing with them in thoir desire to make a newspaper sensation, then the atrocity of their conduct ought to be brought home to them in some other manner. At any rate, it is by no moans sure the travelers are lost. The expedition was to cost $25,000, ull of wkjeji tho plucky newspaper man at tho head of it was to earn with his pen. Ho expected to reach the pole by sledging over the ico and to return to the northern coast of Spitzbergeu in time to sail southward before the waters froze up for the winter. He was not certain that he would reach the pole, but ho was certain, he said, that he would bo back iu America by Thanksgiving. Lot us Btill hope be will be able to redeem his promise. A relief expedition will of course bo sent in search of him as soon as possible. China and Japan are very nearly matched as to military resources. China will not fight in any modem war with tomtoms and stench balls. She haa a navy of 80 vessels, many of them armed with Krupp guns. Only five of tho ships are of tbo latest pattern. These aro armored. Four ore battleships, and one is a coo* defender. China has also 19 cruisers. Japan's navy is more effective, consisting of 32 vessels, allot the modern typo and carrying the most destructive guns. She haa, throe coast defense ships armed with i 8 inch French rifled guns. But Japan on the water is more than counterbalanced 1 by China on land. China's army on a .peace footing numbers 300,000, while that of Japan is, only 78,000. China can at any time put 1,000,000 soldiers into the field, while the largest army Japan qonld muster would be one of 800,000 all told. Chiua has nearly 400,000,000 inhabitants; Japan, 40,000,000. Still allowance must be • made for > the more aggressive and progressive spirit of Japan, Both her fleet, and army aro likely to be rnnoh more effective than those of China. • '-' - • ' '••" •' • • -' It win be a thousand pities if, after all, the money to build tho Nicaragua eanal cannot bo raised in this country, It will np| bo pur credit if the canal company be fproad, to accept the offer of Britten capitalist* tofuruieh the money, If *ome of our *elfl*h millionaires who arc buy ing'yacht*, country estate* aud other proportion iu $ugloud aud other: wi*e •pending- money Ilka water to get into Lestdou "*a««ioty" had ft spark of patriotism about thenv they would have uced BPOti? of their surplus wealth tp construct thbj wprk which moan* *o much to tho United State*.

Mr. Richard P. ftothwell, Mttor of The Engineering and Mining Journal, has finished the sceond Volume of his valuable history of the mineral industry of tho world, and 'It'has been published. Economists, statesmen and staW tstioians will find'aero' ft well of infor* mation fronl which to draw. The work embraces the history, statistics and technology of minerals the world over, from the earliest times to the end of 1898. A corps of learned assistants in several parts of the World have helped in preparingthe book. The year 1898, so far as the silver industry goes, will rank with 1878, Mr. Rothwoll tells us. The demonetization of silver, begun in 1878 and continued till 1898. In that year the repeal of the Sherman law in the United States and the closing of the Indian mints to the coinage of silver ended the last government attempt to uphold the price of tho white metal. Now only Mexico, some of the South American republics and the Asiatic nations are wholly or partially on a silver basia At tho beginning of 1898 silver bullion was 82)£ cents'an ounce in New York At the end of December it was only 08. Tho average price for the year was 78.3. Mr. Rothwell finds that two result* have followed the repeal of the Sherman law. Ouo was a reduction of the "disproportionately high wages paid for labor in the Rocky mountains;" the other was an increase in the production of gold. Old or low grade gold mines were reopened, aud Some Valuable new 1 ones were discovered, notably the' oV posits at Cripple Creek, Colo. The effect was an increase over 1892 of $8,000,000 in our gold production. This much at least is encouraging. The total gold output in the 'United States for 1898 was nearly $86,000,000. Colorado yielded . more than a third of this. We produced within a few 1 dollars the ^dme amount of gold in 1898 that we did in 1878. ' With silver, however, the case is'dif- ferent. In 1878 our mines yielded 27,065,712 ounces. In 1898 they yielded 60,500,000 ounces. The value of the silver mined in 1878 was $86,750,000. In 1898 the almost doubled output, calculated at the average value of 78.2 an ounce, was only $47,811,000. Calculated on the United States coining basis of $1.2929 per ounce, this silver would have been worth $78,220,450, wh'ieh is the value assigned to it in Mr. BJoth- well's table. Silver production in the United States fell off 45,000,000 f ounces in 1898. "• ' • School Yards as Play Grounds. Tho best lover of children must acknowledge that they are a nuisance about the streets in summer. A score or more of them get killed during the vacation season in every city and largo town. They frighten horses and fight.' break, pillage and destroy. In the streets iu which they, run during the summer vacation-they learn more evil tljan the whole year's training in the school- house'the year following can overcome. The streets are a school of crime, whose graduates year by year aro sent to the penitentiary and the gallows. Such being the case, everybody will be glad of a proposition made in some of the' towns and cities to open .the school house yards as a playground for children in summer. Tho matter depends on boards of education. A small appropriation for janitors and guards to watch tho young ones so that no harm shall come to them would.be sufficient When wo are truly civilized, playgrounds for children will be provided for as regularly as sohoolhouses. It is certain that they oaunot stay indoors without its killing them; neither can they be permitted to run wild in the street*.
