MoKinley says that n obeap coat means a cheap man. How is it then that obeap sugar makes a man prosperous? A Republican candidate soys that when a Republican desires to secure Democratic votes, be must always go in- i to the Republican recruiting stations— tbe saloons. By this we take it that tbe saloon is. run in tbe interest ot the Republican party, • We understand tbat one of the Repub lioan candidates openly elates that he is going to buy enongb votes to put him in office, If this poor tool is not tbe worst deceived man tbat ever rau (or office we are greatly mistaken. Our advice to him is to quit and go borne, for if be has no better opinion of bid fellow men than Demooratio ticket, and as a natural oon- leqnenoe they are going into the Republican party. Every state that grows wheat, cotton or corn was taxed to pay bounty ot over 810,000,000 a year i these fellows, and because (hat has been oat off and the differential on reflnei BO gar out into, these fellows are in rebel lion against the Democratic party. Let them go; we, as a party, do no have any nee tor men who have to be paid to belong to it. This olnae belong to the Republicans, and the sooner the; are where they belong the better we ar off. . Dolliver in hia spectoh last evenin dealt gently with tbe Democratic voters He realizes that they have no oandidat of their own 1 and he made a great pin for them.

Sioux City Tribune. A recent brief announcement, nn noticed by many, conveyed the information that for the first time the las mdnnted soldier had been ordered onl of tbe Indian Territory and ..that .the number of army posts in the trans Missouri country was being greatly re dnoed, precedent to their ultimate aboli tibn. This 'item has a great deal ol sentimental, if not of practical interest It marks the close of a struggle which which has been going on ever since . tbe cavaliers landed at Jamestown and the pilgrims landed at Plymouth rook. The first semblance of any army thai this country ever had was raised to fig hi Indiana and almost the first structure erected was to afford shelter against their attacks. During the 250 years which have followed one process baa gone for ward. Tbe Indian has fallen back ant tbe white man's fort has kept in sight ol lira awing him into peace. Tbe white man moved around to tbe other ocean nd an eastward as well as a westward >resBure was felt. The Indian was sur- rounded,plaoed on reservations and when- ver he attempted to escape be ran into he 'cordon of posts. Now the order has come to take off guard. The troopers may unsaddle and prepare for a long rest, a rest which probably will be broken only iy calls to protect the established order against assaults by the unruly of the itiee, The Indiau against whom our scanty army has been accustomed to get its practice in actual warfare can neither tight nor fly and it is not necessary long; er to watch him. He is harmless. Tbe conception of tbe hopelessness of further straggle, ot tbe overwhelming strength ot the white man has at last penetrated even through Indian pride and ignorance and he has folded his hands to a policy of nonresistanoe. There will be no more warpath or midnight pillage. The peaceful withdrawal of troops because they are not needed bears stronger testimony to this than all the precautionary measures ever adopted by the federal government. It will be many years, possibly many generations, tor races are strangely enduring, before tbe time ot the "last Indian" arrives, but the Indian question as a military problem is a thing of tbe past. The fiasco at Wounded Knee will probably go down in history ue tbe final attempt ot the Indian on this continent to measure strength with his white conqueror, • _ . Btilt a Prohibition Party. Tbe Republicans ol Iowa are boldly making their claim tbat they expect this year to fain votes from tbe liberty loving people ol tbe state who left tbat iu the history ot the country did a state grant Authority to violate its own laws The Republican party in the legislature did this to throw dust in the eyes of the liberal minded men of the state who. fol lowed Governor Boies in a revolt agalns 1 the obnotions prohibitory law, thinking they can win them back to their pnrtj by a pretense tbat prohibition' in Iowa is a thing of the past. Brit their rea sentiments in regard to thi* law were sboWD in the passage ot a loint resoln tion to attain submit an amendment to the constitution providing tor complete prohibition. The constitution of Iowa provides tha BB amendment 'to the constitution of the state shall be first passed by one legisla tnre, then by the one following it, and then submitted to the people. The firs step in this' performance war taken b; the last legislature, whioh pretended to be opposed, to prohibition tor the sake o getting votes in the election this fall Early in the session Senator Perrin, o Charles Oily, introduced joint resolution No. 5, .providing for an amendment to the constitution of th* state, that "tbe manufacture, sale and keeping for sale all intoxicating liquors whatever is pro hibited crcrept for medical, .chemical and aeorameatal purposes." This was referred 'to the committee on constitutions amendments and on March 2 was reported back to the senate with the recommendation that it be adopted. On March 28 it came up for action in the senate and a substitute was adopted providing ..only, that "The sale ot intoxicating liquors as a beverage is hereby prohibited." Thie of course would have permitted the manufacture within tbe state and would have aided in providing a home market for the grain of our form ers, whioh now goes to Peoria and Milwaukee, to be shipped back into tbe state in the form of beer and whisky. But this would not have satisfied tbe Re publicans of the house and when tbe question came up in tbat body on tbe 3d of April they amended it so that it passed practically as it wasorlginnllv in trodaoed in tbe senate. The resolution as amended came before the senate April 3, and was passed by that body. Fol lowing is the text of the resolution: Be it resolved by the general assembly of the state of Iowa, that the following amendment to tbe constitution of the state of Iowa be, and the same is hereby pro posed. To add, as section 26, to article 1, }f said constitution, the following: ' "SECTION 28. No person shall manu- ractur'o for sale, or shall keep for sale as a beverage any intoxicating liquors whatever, including ale, wino and Deer." The general assembly shall by law prescribe regulations for the enforcement of the prohibition herein contained, and shall thereby provide suitable penalties !or the violation of the provision hereof. Resolved, further, tbat the foregoing proposed amendment be, and the .same is ierebv referred to the legislature to be chosen at trie next general election for members of the next general assembly, and that tlie secretar5 'of state cause the same to be published for three months previous to tbe day of said election, as provided by law. We don't believe the liberal. minded people of the state, and especially of Carroll county, are going to hasten into be ranks of tbe Republican party with such a record staring them in the face. No; th* Demooratio party has always been the friend ot liberty of conscience and tbe advocate of tbe right ot the teople to local self-government and it is 10 today, while tbe Republican party is nst the same old narrow-minded, pro- oriptire party that it was when the people threw it out ot power iu this state. t has not changed one whit, though it is rying to deceive the people into the be- iet that it has. Tbe passago of tbe mulct law was accomplished with this ntent, while tbe prohibitory amendment bowed tbe real feelings of the party. A vote tor tbe candidates of tbe Republican party goes just eo far towards sbow- ng them tbat yon approve tbe policy of bat party in regard to prohibition, BI well as in other respects, and we do not believe for one minute tbat the people of Carroll county approved that policy by bout 1,000 majority. The way to ex- tress disapproval is to vote tbe Demo- ratio ticket ALL AT WOliK AGAIN. party because they were opposed to sumpt uary and olaai legislation, wblob waa fattened upon tbe state by tbe bigoted und factional majority in tbe legislature which pawed tbe prohibitory liquor law. They are basing their claim upon their ability to fool tb* people and not upon uoy charge in sentiment ot their party. They did not repeal the prohibitory, luw but simply pawed a statute authorizing violations of law upon tbe payment ot § certain stipulated fine. It Jawleesnees is auaroby the Republican party ol Iowa isu wlf.oenvioted band of auarcbUls. It boa authorised mm (o violate Inwe tbat it refuted to repeal and baa consented to the wle pi indulgence* to violate vbafit terms elaw to regulate the morale of UM people ot tb* itete.

Since tbe uotment of tbe new tariff law be industries of tbe country, which were prostrated from tbe effects of Be- nblioan legislation, have taken u sodden move forward. This revival of basinets not ponnned to any particular iudoetv. but is observed in all liius. The Be- .ublioanu, of coarse, insist tbat the OMB- ry in still in the depths of digression, ud tbat tbe eitnatton which obtained its /nonius ago is to be continued, or will be onnd later on to be even worse. Mr. MoKinley, tbe high prieat of pro- lection and father of tbe McKiuley bill, o bte speech delivered at Uuogor, Me., and at a number of places eiuoe) took bis position. Be denied to the DeoM ratio tariff law any virtues whajever. n tbe course of bis speech be uked to wbat respect it woe better than th* fie- ablioan legislation. "Whose taofewie* will il net to work!" be asked. he asserted: "It will not increase the demand for labor at home; it will no start a single factory at home." Given herewith will be found an an awer to Mr. MoKinley'e queries, and i reply to hie assertions. The charge bai been made that at the hands of the Dem ooratio congress the textile industries especially the manufacturers ot woolens were harshly treated, and that, In effect B death blow to them had been struck Prom trade journals and other reliabl and authentic sources, has been gatherei the following statement of tbe revival since congress adjourned, ot the textile industries, prominent among them wool en manufactures, whioh fully and com pletely answers Mr. MoKinley. Th statement is only an indication, however ot the great revival whioh is taking place in all lines ot business throughout the country as a result of the enaotment o the tariff law: The Providence .woolen mills, Provi denoe, R. I. are running to full capacity and on lull time, and have ordtrs aheat tor a period of two months. The Stonewall Cotton Mills, Stonewall Mass., are putting in new machinery.

Parr is starting a new mill at Amsterdam, N. Y., for tbe manufacture of hosiery. MoKinley is about the last Republican ot prominence who praises the MoKinley bill. The others, while it can not be expected that they will have any words of commendation for the Wilson bill, confine themselves to glittering generalities about the benefits of preelection. But they do not tell the people they would reenaot the MoKinley law, even if they had the power. That culminating and outrageous climax of a quarter of a century of high taxes has been too often condemned by the people, and honest Republicans know that the present law is so much superior to the MoKinley law in all that insures to the benefit of the common people that they will never go back to the MoKinley standard of tariff taxation of the few for the benefit of the many. DOLLIVER AT CARROLL. HIS SPEECH LISTENED TO BY A L.AUGK AUDIENCE.—IT WAS A DISAPPOINTMENT TO THOSE WHO EXPECTED TO HEAU ONE OP THOSE FIF.HY AND BRILLIANT SPEECHES WHICH HAVE BEEN CHARACTERISTIC OP HIS LIFE. A real live congressman appeared in our city yesterday, and AS such represen intives of the genus homo are scarce in this locality, lie naturally drew a large audience. As he appeared under the electric light the only change that was visible m him since his last appearance n our city two years ago, was that he md grown more portly and appeared o have grown fat, notwithstanding the Democratic hard times. He was not :ampaigning this year in a ten dollar suit of clothes as he was then tp show lie hearers how cheap clothing had become under Republican high tariff. He opened his speech by saying that he present disgust at the Democratic management was wide-spread, reaching rom Portland, Maine, to Portland, Oregon, and that the causes which brought .his on were of no trivial origin. Some of the causes were, he said, first, that luring the past few years the Republicans all over tho country had been vot- ng the Democratic ticket for some trivial 3Buso or other. They had become tired if voting tho Republicon ticket und •oted for a change—und they got it, too. Jut the lesson of tho past two years uwe taught thorn that it is not safe to make experiments of this kind and they mvo quit it. Ho said the Republicans n this respect reminded him of a boy who used to say hie prayers regularly and was a good boy. He got tired of it and ono night omitted to do so; he did he same again and.again. He said, "I lid not say my prayers last night nor tonight, and I will not say thorn tomor- ow night, und then it nothing does not get me I will not say them for a week,' md then if I do not get caught, I will ' never say them." Just so with the lie-. niblicuns, they voted the Demooratio j ioket once too often und something has hem—they got caught. The second cause of this wide-spread lisgust is tho foreign policy of the pros- nt administration. A little group of {olden islaiida lay off tho west coast of California just iu the gateway of tho Pu- ifio ocean, For) over' a hundred years very administration bad recognized Ihe rent importance ot those islands to tho Juited States, but never droained that he day would oorao when thoy by their >wn voluntary act would be presented to be United States without money or tho otto of human lives. A treaty of annexation had beou drawn up uud presented to the somite of the United States for adoption when tbe present Democratic administration ouino into power. For some unknown hostility to tho former government the president withdrew the rooty /mil used tho wholo force of the [ovommout to reinstate tho q,ue#Uau- iblo rights of u disrupted monarchy. Je did all ho could to crush the Jifo out f a little struggling republic und iu its iluoo roBtoro tho disgraceful roiuuuuts it u putrid monarchy. Tho policy whioh tho present udiuimulrutiou has adopted toward ho poiibiim olllco in also anolh- r OUUHO for Uio widouproud die;UBI which tho administration hits •rollout upon it. Tho Jirut act of tho >rosout uoiumiaaiouer was to utrlke iu of honorable name* from tho rolle uud by implication, at leutit, bring ,iou this vubt tmuy of p utriul» *ho stood by the old flag when out coiih- '/ try was in peril. UseleBB delays have been made and the great saving, this! administration has made whioh the orators and press parade before the pub- lie with such pride, has every dollar been taken from those who sacrificed their fortunes and risked their lives for this country. It has been their disgraceful work showing ingratitude to the brave defenders of the old flag ; that has brought disgust to the hearts of all those who honor our soldiers. Another cause is the inability of the administration to deal With the affairs of the government. We as people ore inclined to have confidence in men who have the appearance of knowing what they are expected to do. They should at least appear as if they undertand their business. But the way the Democrats recriminated each other and knifed each other the country lost.confi- dence in them. I do not take any stock in the reports that the Democrats in congress are.dishonest for I know from;/ personal contact with them that they are not. They are all representative men of high moral standing and are as- far above corruption as it is possible for men to be; but the trouble is that they im attempting to run the affairs of this' government have bit off more than yields ; readily to the natural process of mastication. . '.. •'...;• '!V Tariff and labor is one and the same thing. Jas. 6. Elaine, the greatest of all statesmen said that the tariff and the ' labor problem were indentical. You settle the one and the other ..will settle itself. Our party goes on the theory that • our people should do our own work and-' the Republican party has-|so framed', legislation to give protection and work to our laborers and to enable the owners of our factories and mines to give satisfactory wages. The MoKinley bill put 48 per cent of all our imports on the free list. All articles that are used in this country which we do not make or pro duco, but tb everything that is manufactured here we put on a duty. Every struggling little factory was protected' from outside importation. We do not\ believe in opening our markets to the •',' world and allow the great manufacturing centers of Europe furnish us our goods while we sneak our manufactured' products off to a neutral market. We desire to supply home consumption. The neutral markets are of no commercial significance. For instance, what would would we do furnishing woolen goods to the people of South America. Their trade is valueless, for the people there all go naked; or boots and shoes, to Mexico, for they go barefooted. So it is with all these neutral markets, their trade is practically worthless. Democrats are at last learning something, or some of them are, for they came before congress beg- gin for special privileges and were willing to violate the constitution by asking , for the protection which the; Democratic platform declares to be unconstitutional. For instance, u congressman from Ohio begged for protection for pottery, one from Troy, N. Y.,for' protection Cor collars and cuffs, one from Connetit cut for hosiery and so on for iron, woo^ and agricultural products. Coming as I; do from an agricultural state I'-wos particularly interested in agricultural products and to see that they were protected. We as Republicans believe that the American farmer shall raise what is used in this country and tbe McKinley ' bill put a duty on them to keep the produce of Canada out of competition with farmers of the United States. I trust however that I will live long enough to BOO that country admitted to the union and I know of no better way to do it than to tax them heavily for everything they sell in our market. But tho Wilson bill lets them all in free to compete in our markets without price. The greatest sacrifice that was ever made in this country was made when wool was placed on the free list James Of, Elaine was a practical man in politics ae everything else, and said, now boys when you have any concessions to make in the way of trade do not make them until you get something for them. On this theory he built up the great scheme of reciprocity. If ho had only hud free wool in his bands to work with what might he not have accomplished; but the Democrats sacrificed this great opportunity without giving anything la return. Wool ban gone down and that great industry is lost to our country. In 1890 wo put sugar on the free list but the Democrats tore it away and added a duty ot 40 per cent ud valorem, ouu-eighth cent on refined and one. tenth additional if it is brought from uountvies that pay an exiwrt duty. By this they made u free oileriuK of fifty millions to the trust and every Democrat ami nil the Populists voted for it. Wo hud looked upon the Populists UB being above, such work, b,ut for name unaccountable reason this self- styled holy clous of reformers were brought under tho baleful lutiueuoe of the grout sugar trust. While I urn not mitibilod with tho present tariff bill, I urn unalterably opposed to ut'ujn roop- ouiug tho isBuo. When I sou tho loutf oaruvuiiB oroatiiug und reoroamug this continent looking for work; tlie milln thiit havo boot) olosod down by tariff agitation; the tears that have beou shed uud tho hungry out of work, I say the country has tired ot tinkimntf with tho tariff uud the wuy to stop it and restore confidence within thirty days, la to Uuntinwd on
