The (Republican croaker is almost as twd off these days aa a politician oat of •ijob. __________ When sleepy old Jefferson goes to {tatting on city airs with electric lights, • flue hotel and water-works, Iowa is all light. The calamity bowl won't go any longer. Too many evidences of returning prosperity oome to life every day to longer deceive the people. There have been more acres of corn out in Iowa this fall than ever before. Kearly every field has been mowed down and the fodder saved in this oonnty. The income tax has oome to stav. No Republican conventions have dared to .declare against it, although the organs of that party bowled against it when it i <flrst introduced in congress. The Herald thinks it a disgrace for a candidate to be a graduate from one of oar state institutions of learning. We presume be would bave bis candidates graduate from a "jag institute." By the way, what bos become of those Republican papers who think the income tax law snou rank injustice t Have they oome to the conclusion that it isn't safe to antagonize ibis feature of the Wilson Ullf Ban Henry, of the Coon Rapids Enterprise, saya that the office ot supervisor should be non-partisan. Then the leasoB is all the stronger that each a red ioal partisan as A. 0. Steels should never be elected to the offioe. If our friends, the enemy, are driven to the extremity ot abasing Democratic aominaei lor eooaty oflkw OB the sjrounds that they spent their time in •ohoolhonaes instead of the saloon, they •re turd posted early in the canvass. aeaatoi Brioe, of Ohio, got bandied without gloves at the D*mooretio state eonvantion Wednesday, but he still bad trfliTHftf enough to defeat a vote of censure if be could not prohibit the delegates telling him what tbey tbuufbtot bint in pretty plain language. Breakiuridge's defeat for the nomination for aongreM shows toe power of women la politics. The old •inner deserves ell he got end more, too. It will teach a wholesome Isewa to those who •spire to public favor. Tbare are a whole lot more of the people's representatives at Washington who deserve the same tnedioine Breok. wna given last Saturday by his constituency. The Herald makes complaint tightest the present members of the board of supervisors becnnse they do not exceed their duties in trying to enforce the liquor law and save, "Steele is the man, boyp, to elect for this work." Yes, Steele BBS a record as an "enforcer" whioh has coat this county dearly. The country is already feeling the beneficial effects of the many good features in the Wilson bill and in a few months the business men ot the country will have forgotten we were ever afflicted with four years of the Harrison administration with its dire and disastrous effects on the governments finances and the general business of the country. If a political party ever bad a sore thing on electing its officials the Democratic party in this county has a cinch. There are good reasons tor this, namely: The Democrats have a majority and the party is united, and its candidates are better men for the offices than those ot the other parties. There is no good reason for a Democrat to scratch his ticket this year. Oar contemporary, who says that "graduates" of colleges who have been kicked from post to pillar getting an education and a start in the world are cattle, was one day a poor boy himself. He turned bis head at anything that would bring an immediate return bat we never beard anyone call him a bovine for that reason alone. When be got married fortune smiled on him. We presume be was dehorned and oeaeed to go on fours. As indicating how the Republican nominations for oonnty offices were received throughout the county, the Manning Monitor expresses the situation precisely: "As the results of the Republican convention at Oarroll were announced to the few of the faithful gathered at the telephone offioe, a deep groan of despair would go up from the crowd at they realized that victory, with each succeeding nomination, was slipping farther and farther away from their 8«ep." The Democrats of Ohio in elate convention Wednesday declared for the free coinage of silver at the ratio ot 16 to 1. That's what the South Carolina Demo- orats did at their state convention the me day. The Democrats, Republicans and Populists are all declaring for the coinage ot the white metal. If party pledges amount to anything the day can not be far distant when silver will again be restored to its rightful position as the legal money ot oar land. That poition of the Lonisana sugar growers who believe the government ought to support them, have joined the Republican party. It is well. All those .who believe that the United States government is an eleemosynary institution for the support of those who claim the right to tax other people for their person al benefit, should join the Republican party. That's where they belong, While all who believe that taxes should be levied solely for the purposes ot government economically administered, should be in the Democratic ranks. The issue is plainly joined. There are a number of strikes on throughout the country, inaugurated since the passage of the Wilson bill, but they are for an increase of wages. What a contrast with the strikes under the Me- Kinley law, every ene of which was against a reduction of wages I They were nearly all lott, too, while the present strokes are being won and the higher wages demanded are conceded by em ployers, Agree to Disagree. For some time the leaders of the People's iparly in this judicial district bave been trying to arrange a judicial ticket. They have held a couple ot meetings with that in view, bat the task proved one difficult of notation. The last meeting of this kind was held at the court house in on city yesterday. All the counties were represented by their chairman and a number of others, but the result of the meeting was ths same as the others. After remaining in session about four hours it was finally de- oided to leave the place on the ticket vacant. There was a strong feeling on Ike part of the delegates to Indorse the Democratic candidates, but there wee In this meeting, as in all political gather ings of this kind, a few "Middle of the road" fellows who, like our Republican friends in the county convention, wanted the "clear stuff" and would not be satisfied wild northing else, This we pro aurne will end the question of making nominations tor judge this year, and the People's party devotees will be lift free to oast their votes for whoever they de sire of the nominees of the Democratic or Republican parties, o» go without ax< eroiuog their right as American MAJOR STEPHENSON'S MONUMENT. The recently completed monument at Galesburg, HI., to Dr. B. F. Stephenjon, organizer of the Grand Army of the Republic, is a shaft, of blue granite twenty feet taU. On the base is "Stephenson " in bas-relief and on the first die " B. B. Stephenson, Founder of the Grand Army ot the Republic. Born in 1823; died in 1871." in the selection of judges. The bars are down and they are fancy tree to do just as they please. The "Sweaters'' Win. The garment makers of New York have won in their strike and bave been granted nearly every concession demanded of their employers. This following closely upor the passage of the new tariff bill is strong argument that the amount of tariff levied upon the goods does not neoebsarily increase or decrease the price • ot wages, for the condition of these thousands of laborers is better now than it ever was under the MoEin- ley law. The demands of the •'sweaters," as they were known, were that a regular weekly salary be fixed, or so much per garment, instead of the task system of payment. Under the task system so many garments constituted a day's or a week's work, and in order to do the amount ot work required it was necessary for the poor employes to work from twslve to eighteen hours per day. The work was taken to their homes end there, crowded in unhealthy rooms and garrets, work wae done. This, by the terms of ths settlement of the strike, which was so pluokily made, has been abolished and a regular salary paid for so many hours' work, or ao much per garment, and the employer baa to furnish a place for the work to be done. The laborers now deal directly with their employers, and the contractors and middlemen are abolished. By this the employers lose little or nothing, for they save the commission whioh they had to pay the middlemen and commissioners whioh was a greater per oent of the cost ot the making than the increased scale of wages. ' It was a remarkable victory these garment-makers have wori and demonstrated it was not the tariff which fixes the price paid labor, but the power labor baa to demand a fair profit for its work when properly organized for securing its rights and resenting injustice. The leader of this strike was a' yonng man from the ranks ot the laborers who was chosen leader for bis good judgment and was not heralded as an agitator or a reformer. Power WBB never morel wisely bestowed than in this instance, and the success of their demands was largely due to bis earnestness and unselfish and nn tiring labor. A Statistical Compariaon. Ws are indebted to Bon. J. P. Dolliver for a copy of the "abstract of the eleventh census," printed at the govern ment printing office et Washington This little book contains much useful information and just out ot curiosity we glanced through it to note some comparisons between the Republican states ot Maine and Vermont and the Democratic states of Alabama and Arkansas. These Republicans claim to monopolize all the progress and enlightenment there is in this country, and we wished to i just how far the facts will bear them out in this claim. First we noticed that Maine had in creased in population during the decade from 1880 to 1890 12,160 or 1,87 per oent und Vermont 186 or .04 per oent, while Alabama increased 260,512 or 1084 per oent and Arkansas increased 886,064 or 40.58 per oent. Which eta! would you judge to be bank uaatbara from these figures? Next we see that Maine increased her manufactured products during the same decade from 870,000,000 to 81)5,000,000 in round numbers, Vermont front 181, 000,000 to 888,000,000 while Alabama increased hers from 818,000,000 to 901, 000,000 and Arkansas from 80,000,000 to f 28,000,000. It figures indicate any thing they certainly do not show that these two Pemoaratio ^^ ttre felling behind in the no* ot materiitl progress. Delving • little farther into this valuable reference book for which we are much indebted to the congressman from this district, we note the astonishing fact that the true valuation of real and personal property has shrunk 822,000,000 in Maine during the past ten years and 837,000,000 in Vermont, while in Alabama it has increased 8194,000,000 and in Arkansas 8169,000,000; also, that the shrinkage has been 847 per capita in Maine and 8180 in Vermont, while there baa been an increase of 873 per capita in Alabama and 847 in Arkansas. Figures do not seem to bear out the wonderful claims of our Republican friends as to their monopoly of the enterprise and progreestvenesB ot the country, but as these are Republican, figures we don't know what they can dn but accept them. Another page of this wonderful book shows us that these so-called "progressive" states also require more taxes to keep the Republican state governments in running oHer. In Maine the rate of taxation on the true valuation of the property of the state is 1.01 and in Vermont .79, while in Alabama i< is .48 and in Arkansas .62. And the rate per capita in Maine is 87.45, in Vermont 86.33, while in Alabama it is only 81.96 and in' Arkansas 82.49. ID other words the taxes are more than twice as much per capita in the Republican states of Maine and Vermont as they are in the Democratic state of Alabama and Arkan- 9. , These are only a portion of the valuable facts that can be gleaned from the last census reports, but they are enough to'show that these Republican claims that all the progressiveness of the country is centered in themselves is the merest bosh. In fact, to a casual student of these statistics it would appear as if the progressive people bad emigrated from those old fogy states in New England (perhaps to Alabama and Arkansas) while the back numbers are still there and of course are voting the Repnbli OBD ticket. For Shame. J. Uoeblng Schroeder we are told IB a "graduate" and has a state certificate, hence would make a good clerk. Oreeley said that'graduates were worst horned cattle he bad ever known. The very fact that Mr. Schroeder has changed bis occupation every six months since "graduation" Is evidence that he belongs to the class Horace Qreeley had lit mind Carroll Herald. The above is the advice given by J. B. Hungerford, trustee of the Iowa State Agricultural college, to the young men ot this state. Surely a lofty intpiration for a young man to toil years to aobisve Sobroeder was a poor boy raised In this oonnty, and by bisown«fforto succeeded in working bis way through college and graduated from one of the leading pub lie educational institutions of our state Little did be dream that it was a disgrace for him to spend all these years at study and hard work to earn money to pay bis expenses for an education. Bow bnuil iating it must be to him to be thus publicly held up to ridicule and scorn for his actions and this, too, by a trustee of one of lowa'e proudest eduoationa institutions. We uk on impartial ver diet regarding the utterances of Hunger ford. We are sorry to know that a man who has the interests of oas of our pub lie state institutions intrusted to bis care will, for partisan reasons, trail the eland ard of education in the wire. The iosul be tries to heap upon Bobroeder because be is a graduate from one of our Mate colleges, is common to many young men and women who have labored as he with a pure and unselfish ntture, wblob the ordinary human being oalls almost Qod like, to make something of himself aac be something iu this world. After yon bave read this we ask you to agaio raw what Huugerford says of Bohroeder en< then say what you think of this mo* unwarranted attajk. Bat if you have young boys whom you desire to educate for God's sake do not tell them the what Bangerford nays is true and the f they desire to aspire to political p«- erment at the bonds of their fellow men, hat they must shun our schools ofhigb- ir learning, aa they would n deadly serpent. . A Nineteenth Century Movement. The most hopeful feature on which the nineteenth century will look as its sun (foes down is the movement of helpfulness to one another that is spreading among civilized meii. In all history there is no record of a time whoii people generally were doing so much to aetter .the lot of those less fortunate. There is snobbery without end. There is the childish aristocracy of wealth, which thinks itself superior because it ias more of the merely animal comforts Of life. There are cheating and despoiling as cruel, if not so violent, as any that blotted the human record in the days of the robber barons or the pirates of the Spanish main. But never before did thinkers so often sit down and strive to reason out methods of removing the inequalities of fortune among civilized men. The model tenement houses and cooking classes for the poor, the cheap music, books aud summer and winter excursions bring mankind nearer a level of intelligence and sympathy than they ever were before. The college settlements are one of the most striking features of the movement. Into a squalid, crowded, dirty district in a great city go a few refined, devoted men or women. They rent a cheap suit of rooms. They live among the poor oftentimes when they themselves have been accustomed to every luxury that wealth can bring. They do not patronize the people. They quietly and with infinite tact make them feel as equals and brothers and sisters. They bring cleanliness, light, flowers, music, libraries and good food within reach of those whom poverty and ignorance have stunted and dwarfed. They teach bet tor, cleaner, finer ways of living. Especially among the children of the poor are. these lessons learned. Such will be lifted to a permanently higher level froza whioh their children that come after them will never sink. There, too, is grand co-operative movement of the nineteenth century, teaching that oo operation—not competition—is the ml ing principle of a true civilization. In stead of every man's hand being against hie neighbor's, the hands all working together in harmony will produce plenty for all. Among the churches, too, there are indications of downright honest effort to apply the teachings of the founder of Christianity directly to the solution of social and economic problems. This is what Christianity is good tor. A Rothschild Scheme. The most gigantic financial scheme on record is now contemplated by the Rothschilds. .They are endeavoring to buy the goldflelds of South Africa. They control as it is all the gold of Europe that is already iu coin. They now propose to control it in the mines before it becomes money. The goldfields of the Transvaal will this year yield $37,500,000. This is near ly three times what the amount was in 1801. The Rothschilds now own a controlling interest iu the fields of Kiinbor ley and fix the prices of diamonds for the world. The Transvaal gold mines yield annually a third of the earth's product. If the Rothschilds con buy them, this stupendous commercial concern will then control one-third of all the annual gold output If they think the price of the yellow metal is at any time falling be low what they think profitable, they can at once shut off production. If, again, all the nations should oome to the single gold standard, the Roths- childs will have the money of the earth under their thumb. Liebkueoht, the Oermou socialist, is watohiug with profound iutorost the absorption of froo competition by private capital everywhere. Ho says it is the moat important step toward socialism ever taken. The fewer iu numbers the private capitalists are the eairior it will be to deal with them when the time comes. A sour old bachelor takes a fiendish delight in calling attention to the fact that there in one thing women oaiuioi do anyhow, and that is tie their MOB online cravats. "They way wear 'eui,' he says, "but they can't tie'em. I'v< seen vests on 'em," he continued, warm ing up, "that in 10 minutes would drivi a man into imbecility if be had to wear the like of them."

It is annonnced that William Wat* orf Astor, who loses $8,000 a month.. n h'is periodical, The Pall Mall Maga- ine, has become a British citizen. It is ilso'announced that certain other of our American ruling families bow in juropo have decided that they will never return to this country to live. :heir home is in New York, but their complaint is that New York never does anything to make life pleasant for these many millioned; therefore they won't ive in America any more. The principal reason they think they are unkindly iroated appears to be that Now York ms been vainly trying for years to make some of them pay their taxes. This is too bad. New York ought to remit their taxes for the honor of having our American nobility live there. More ,han that, it ought to institute a -constant round of strawberry and ice cream ostivals and baseball games in their lonor and invite them free. It ought to sit up nights thinking of ways to amuse them and pet them. We owe everything a our millionaires, we do, in this conn- pry. The only trouble is that we do not >roperly appreciate them. When that xjggarly Battenberg finally makes up its mind whioh American millionaire's daughter he will marry, and when the rest of them buy their deer parks and London houses and get regularly into the swim with British nobilities and royalties, perhaps we will think more of ;hem and begin to wake np to the beau- if and brains that are lost to us forever more. Maybe they will buy up some titles of nobility, and then we shall mow and be sure what rare spirits have vanished from our midst. One thing we are certain of, however, and that little fact leaves us not wholly disconsolate. We know they will dra-w their money regularly from this country. We are still good enough to pay rents to our millionaires and furnish the material for their coupon cutting. Meantime if eight people do frequently live in one room in the cities whence our noble millionaires derive their revenues, and if a dozen people are sometimes reported in one morning paper as having committed suicide because they cannot pay rent and have nothing to eat be-^ sides, what does that matter? What' right have they to disturb the good times of our millionaires abroad by making snob unpleasant items in tho morning papers? And let the Americans stop at onoe trying to take care of their suffering poor these times and go to work and • make the country pleasant for our millionaires to live iu. What is called the "Whalebaok" line of freight steamers has been established between New York and Tampico, Mexico. The ships are an adaptation of the model of the some name that attracted attention three years ago. The first ship of the new line, the Sagamore, was built at • Sauderland, England. She is registered as a Belgian ship, although designed to run in' American ports. Tho leading idea in the novel construction of this ship is that she is round backed, like a whale, and very flat, so that seas can roll over and over her, instead of crashing against her and staving her in. Her bottom • is. also round and smooth, having no keel at all. A fiulike strip running along each side of the bottom, keeps her steady. It is claimed for the Sagamore, and facts thus far bear out the claim, that she is faster, safer, holds more cargo iu proportion to her size and consumes less coal than the ordinary freighter. She is 830 feet long and 88 foet Wide, drawing 10 feet 6 inches loaded. She has a double bottom, so* if tho first should run upon a rook the other would still bo there, three feet above, to keep her from sinking. It would be strange if the pattern of ships that has obtained since before the beginning of civilization should in time bo changed to the whalebaok pattern. One claim made for the new model is that it can be adapted so as to make a superior passenger carrying vessel. The Greek church priest who went to labor with the Princess Alix has solemnly announced that she is now soundly converted to tho true faith of the Russian state religion, BO that sho will'*, bo fit to marry tho pzarowita by September. It' is such a comfort to have one's theology thus on tap, so to speak, like the liquids in a soda fountain, so that 0110 may draw on it or change-it to order. Princess Alix's religion is as convenient OH tbo theology of the cook who told u now mistress, "I always changes my religion to suit tho people I liven with." Iu case of Alix it was not her houvuuly orowu that WHS so much at stake an an imperial oarthly one. It can hardly be credited that a man hod invented a folding baby carriage, Tho only posuibiu explanation of it is that tho man in a cross grained old bachelor who hiitos babies and want* to hastoii thuir oxit out of the world by a dovioo as deadly in its wny as the folding bod IK. There lire puoplo so superior iu their own estimation that they would pat- rcmino tho Almighty if they had opportunity.
