[See preceding page for late telegraphic news.] The return of Republicanism WHB followed by another bond issue. Yon hove not beard anything nbont dear sugar since election have yon ? It M no <r selling at $4.75 in our city. It ia amusing to bear tbe Republicans •boat about returning prosperity, .lust M if they did it with their little ballote. Texas baa at last been beard from and bobs up with twenty thousand plurality for tbe Democratic ticket. All is not yet tort. _ The Chinese army has a new commander by tbe came of . Ool. Yon Han- nekin wbo has been mand. given supreme com- . The Washington Democrat says with a pathetic refrain, "Whom the Lord loveth he ohasteneth." We should remark tbat be did. Tbe Democrats are reported aa baring gone on a strike last week. Two years of Republican legislation will bring tbem all back into tbe ranks. President Cleveland and Secretary Carlisle have decided to issue fifty millions of bonds to bear 5 per cent interest. Bids will be received until the 24th of this month. Tbe Japaneese army has captured Fort Arthur which was considered impregnable. Tbe arteael and gun factories at this place are tbe largest in the world with tbe exception of Erupp'e. California went Democratic by a little over 1,000 plurality. This is due, tbe Republicans say, to the unpopularity ot tbe Republican candidate for governor. This may also be true with D. B. Hill of New York. ' _ Boas Platt ot New York says that hie •late will MoKinley never support for president. Harrison or He is per•Dually favorable to Reed of Maine or result ot tbe late election. Prosperity was on the way and Republican victory in an off year did not materially retard its return. Bro. Stillman ot the Jefferson Bee, and Tnrrill ot tbe Souvenir, -are indulging in a little family y spat. Its bard to gel along with an editor wbo only baa • thimble fall of brains located in the back ot his skull, isn't it Bro. Stillman? Protection's benefit to this country ii just now illustrated by Germany's refusing to permit the landing of cattle from the United States at their ports, because an extra doty ie fixed on sugar from bounty paying countries by recent act ot congress. Germany pays a email bounty and has been selling a great deal ot sugar in the United States. This new law imposed by Gorman and bis friends in tbe senate when they mnlUlated the Wilson bill, is too much in the Hoe of Republican protection legislation to be healthy. It has enraged the German government and they are retaliating. Another Loan. Secretary Carlisle baa asked for jtfds for another loan ot $50,000,000. Tbe loan is to be tbe same as tbe one made last February and the same plates will be used in issuing the bonds. Carlisle ie reported as having been desirous ot postponing the issue nat.l additional legislation could be enacted, hoping to get a lower rate than provided for in the resumption act under which the loan if made now would be governed. Tbe president has grown very uneasy of late regarding tbe financial condition of tbe treasury and fears adverse actiou of congress. He watobse with impatience the small increase of tbe gold reserve since it rerobed its lowest point. It is Alliscn of Iowa, prefers the cear. but of tbe two much A good ruuny votete iu Carroll county have determined to abolish tbe ring iu .politics. That is, the circle at tbe bead of tbe ballot.^for they indiscriminately •bowed their preference and familiarity •with the little square. Tbe Inter Ocean is very sore on tboee Republicans who favor electing "tree trade" Joseph Medill, ot tbe Tribune to tbe United States senate. It says be proved a traitor to -Blame nod through bis paper tried to convince tbe American people that be was a dishonest man. Such is politics. Ia New York candidates for office are compelled to file au itemized account with the secretary ot state, of the amount of money spent and for what during tbe campaign. Qov.-elect Morton has just filed bis statement and it shows a footing ot $19,790. Tom Platt knew be was a flab when be dictated hie nomination. Congressman Ualbersou of Texas, baa eerv«d in the house for twenty consecutive years, aud is tbe oldest member of tbst body and will have the honor of •wearing in tbe ueit speaker. This bouor would bave fallen on congressman Bland ot Missouri, if be bad not got Mugbt in tbe landslide last week. Mr. Oulbersou is a Democrat and will not lelish fllliug Speaker Onsp'a place with • Republican. The Republicans carried tbe Illinois ! even vow the bosses of the party have retired Shelby Oullom as •enator and arobosily engaged in hoisting Joseph Itedill of toe Chicago Tribune into his eoat. This is what we Democrats expected nil the time, Oullom voted tor the MoKinley bill aud is an extreme protectionist while Meilill ia u "free trader." The Uopubliuau papers are just be- giuniug to fled out tbat business ia pick iug up all over the country; a fact the Democratic papers had been aware uf for Bemttl weeks before eleoljou. We fWajiuae these belated organs will oluin ! (be revival of bueiuese ia duo lo the now only about $62,000,000 and tbe out look for an increase is very gloomy in deed. Tbe imports are small and tbe revenues of tbe government do not meet tbe expenditures. Should a demand be made for a heavy export ot gold the treasury would be depleted, tbe government credit would be destroyed aud another financial panic precipitated. To avoid this tbe president feels justified in losing no time to build np the reserve and eeoure our national credit. Tbe recollections of the last panic are too fresh in tbe minds of the people to stand any temporizing with so delicate a question. The president in taking this preoan tionury measure baa done what all sensible men will commend. His action in deciding on tbe iseae at once without subjecting our national credit to the uncertain action of congress will certainly restore confidence, and bave a reassuring effect upon the fiaanoial condition ot tbe country. The Omaha Bee bos thiseensable Bug geetion regarding bond issue: "Assuming that tbe treasury will bave no difficulty in disposing of the new bonds upon satisfactory terms, tbe question suggests itself as to bow long this addition tc the public debt will eerre the purpose of maintaining tbe gold reserve. May not tbe ssme causes tbat buve depleted the treasury gold for the last year und a half continue to operate, and if so is it not reasonably certain tbat six or eight months beaoe it will become neoes sary to issue more bonds in order to again replenish the reserve? Bo long SB the export demand for gold must be met maiuly from tbe treasury supply, because tbe banks will uot part with gold for tuts purpose, aud customs duties ouu be paid iu other forms of money than gold, it in pluiu that it will be foun:l very difficult to wuJutaia tbe treasury reserve even by borrowing, aud the treasury ouu not go ou iudefluitely repleuinuiug by this process. The remedy suggested fui this dillloulty, aud it eeems eutirely puutiauble, is for congress to provide that u fited proportion of the duties, uot I <na thuu 60 per cent, shall be puld in I i;old oolu or gold cerlifiotttat). Thin i ivuuld give the treasury uu assured gold jtuoouiB of about 1100,090,000 a year, and with this there would probably be no difficulty found in maintaining. tbe reserve. This ia a matter which ought to receive the early attention of congress. Crooked Election Method*. The following dispatch to the Marshalltown Republican telltt its own story. Democracy Is governed by tbe spirit of Tammany everywhere, iu New York, iu Chicago, in Carroll and Crawford. Whttre- ever it Is entrenched behind a majority it does crooked election work. Ive hope our friends In Carroll will appeal to the judiciary. This district has elected two judges to whom Republicans cnn appeal with confidence that impartial justice will he administered. Gathering votes in corn fields is certainly n new method: CARROLL. Nov. 12—Special: A report Is current here tui« morning which, If true, will throw out tbe vote of Knlent township, this county. It Is reported on pretty good authority that the Judges of election went to several men who were at work In the corn fields und had them fill out thflr tickets an 1 deposlte them In an envelope. when the judges would take them to the voting places and deposlte tbum In the box. If this Is true lien. w. Bowflii, Kepubiican, will defeat (iearge W. Korte, Democrat, foe county attorney, auil H. w. Beed will defeat H. Kempker lor recorder.— Demson Hevlew. The above is but a fair sample of the 'else statements made by Republican Dspare. The facts are that the election .n Koiest township was conducted in accordance with the law in every particular, while Union township, the stronghold of Republicanism, sent in her returns not certified to as the law requires and they also showed other irregularities which would warrant the board, which ie solidly Democratic, in rejecting them. Had it done so it would have defeated tbe election of a Republican supervisor and elected a Democrat instead. But* tbe Democrats ot this county adopt no such methods as onr Republican friends do in every (/art of tbe union. Republicans lose no such opportunities to defeat the will of the people. But with Democracy "entrenched behind a majority" tbe will ot tbe people ie supreme. We not only believe tbat every voter should bave bat one vote aud that fairly counted, bat we also insist oa a free and untromm«led election. With Democracy "entrenched in power"the man wbo fairly receives bat one majority is just aa secure in his rights to tbe offioe as though bis election were unanimous. Bimetallism. The members of the German silver Commission drew up after the conference a report of the conclusions they had reached on the subject of bimetallism. It bus bocu translated into Qug- lish and is printed in The Review of Reviews. There arc no such exhaustive students anywhere ns the Germans. With a patience that is almost incomprehensible to an American they poro over facts and figures and weigh every shade of moaning. The Gorman biiuetallist committee consider it proved by science, experience and oven partly by the admissions of tho gold adherents themselves that the power of gold to purchase articles has steadily risoii since tho extcm,3ou of tho gold standard iu 187SJ, and that it must contiuue to rise. As fur buck as 1808 German economists predicted this rise in gold in case it should bo adopted as tho solo standard. A little luter the same prediction was repeated by tbe Frenchman Do Luvoloye and the American H. C. Caniy, Tho attempt to attribute the general lowering ol' prices to other causes than tho coinage system is a failure for the reason tljat the some ouuse existed during a period of 30 years before 187!!, and there was uo such decline. As if to put tho matter beyond doubt, the report calls utlcutioii to tho fact that industrial development is now especially strong in countries having the silver standard, but in them there is not tho full iit prices llmt afflicts the gold countries. Some of llio results of the single gold standard nro u heavier aud heavier burden falling on the debtor iu favor of the creditor and a social bitterness between employer, and employed. Tho report lays it down aa a basic principle that tho creditor hus us good a right to boar purl of the lows arising from (lie enhancing valuo of gold as the debtor hub. A Html result of the increasing (lisa* bility of llio debtor class will 1m that they will bo unable 'to meet their obli- gittiuus, and creditor tut well OH debtor will be mined. For their own t>aken, therefore, thft fluruiim cumuiitwiou rooouiuuend the creditor class to aid in the agitation for international bimetallism. The demone- tization of silver first affeofe the agricultural class, so that they are unable to purchase supplies. This in turn works injury to the manufaturiug element. It finally involves the capitalist and pulls the whole financial fabric down upon his head. "Any.further extension of the gold system must, aa Gosoheu predicted BO early as 1878, lead to a business crisis such as the world has never yet passed through." Nothing bnt a restoration by all the nations—not by one or two alone, bnt all— w iil restore prosperity. If that were done, "the persistent fall of general prices would cease, the prices of all products would again- be determined in a normal way, and agriculture and other industries would flourish anew." It waa the demonetization of silver that caused the auti-Jewish outbreak in Germany. Tho Jews are the creditor class, and against them was vented the bitterness of those who suffered from industrial decline. With the remonetization of silver and the consequent revival in material prosperity anarchism, socialism and the bitterness of hate that now. is directed toward millionaires and the capitalist class would cease to have any significance. Finally that a fixity in the relative values of gold and silver can be brought about and maintained by international agreement aud legislation is proved by the fact that for 70 years, from 1803 to 1878, such fixity did prevail. Bimetallic mintage at the rate of 15 % to 1 existed la France during all that period. What has been done cau be done again. Funeral Folly, Mrs. Annie Hiller is worth some $5, 000,000. She and her husband livet frugally till they laid it up. They had 83 children— seven pairs of twins — bnl these all died. Then Mrs. Hiller cousid ered that she had nothing left to spew her money on tot her own Whims, how ever crazy they might be. Tho world was full of babies still. She might have adopted half a hundred waifs, of thi little ones thrown upon ' tho world like blind kittens, to live or die as fate wills, She might have educated them auc made happy, useful men aud women ot them. Bhe might have started a suburban colony Of little cottages, with a yard am garden around them, and built a rail road to it and inaugurated cheap fares, so that poor people could live iu the country and bring up their childrci: there, even if it was necessary for then: to work in tho city. She might have founded public baths in the slums of i great city and a kitchen school where poor girls might learn to bo exquisite cooks and immaculate housekeepers. Theu when they married they woult have known how to provide their families with the be*', fond at least expense, so that their husbands would not have been driven to make up the look of foot by fiery beer potations. But no! Bhe did none of these things. She built u tomb for her husband, with a vacant place for herself wheuHho tibuftlod off. Tho thing cost an even |600,000. It is at Winchester, Mass. Two coffins that oost #60,000 more uuch are inside of it. Mrs. Hiller'n husband's poor, unsightly, decayed reinuius rent in one of them. In tho other Mrs. Hillur's lifeless, Houseless, unsightly dust wil go to pieces in the course of time, 81m will be buried iu a- robe that cost $30, 000. It has COO hand embroidered Kng- lish daisies upon it and GOO yards of handmade lace. It is a daisy, it is! The doorknobs at the entrance to the tomb are of solid gold, und tho lump ut the gateway cost $10,000. It will be uocesKury to Jmvo wuti'hwou day au 1 . uiglit to guard nil thin uiurluury /.;ritn- deur from thieves, und a largo fund has been set uKido to puy them, mol.tliiy through tho ages, for no arrangement lias been made to have the thing stun. Tho Uillerh could nut make any impression on the world when they wero alive, HO Miu Hiller is prepared to make u great bulurgu dead. themselves and are getting rich out of It. Ninety per ceut of the altttninimn bar metal of the United States coines from this firm. When they hare all made their fortune ont of the process, perhaps they will give it to the rest of the world. The things that aluminium is corning Into use for are legion. It is now as cheap as copper. A little time will see it taking tho place of brass on all balusters, doorknobs aud fenders. It never turns black and will not have to be scoured. Why aluminium bedsteads are not already made is a mystery. The beautiful metal would shine like silver always, would be cleaner- and lighter than wood, and no vermin conld find lodgment in its crevices. Shining bathtub linings are made of the new metal. In a little while all the cooking utensils of persons who have any (esthetic taste will be aluminium. Neither the porcelain, agate nor granite ware has been an unqualified success. Aluminium, ever clean, shining and light in weight, will shortly inaugurate the reign of healthful and beautiful cookery. The Future of Egypt. Politically it no doubt lies with England. Industrially great changes may be expected early in the twentieth century, if not before. These are of immediate interest to the United States in that they will involve the quadrupling of the production- of the fine, long fiber- ed Egyptian cotton which is used exclusively in the manufacture of the better class of lisle thread goods. No cotton produced in America will take the place of it. The scheme proposed for the industrial rehabilitation of Egypt is irrigation on a vast scale. Onr consul gener • al in Egypt, Hon. Frederic C. Peuneld, writes of it in The North American Review. He says the present condition ot Egypt is prosperous. Her land taxes are being reduced, and official corruption and extortion are being reduced too. But the money to build the gigantic irrigatiou works proposed will come from England all the same. The plan will be to make in upper Egypt either one stupendous reservoir or a number of small ones, and when the Nile floo'd is on draw off from its raging waters a quantity sufficient to water all tho desert adjacent. A system of irrigating canals will do this as perfectly as it is done by the Riverside Fruit Growing company ia California. The sum required is believed to be not over $15,000,000. Theu Egypt may become, as she was in the most ancient times, the granary of the nations.\ Father of Forest Tree Planting. "We can pick out 50 men who have been thought great enough to send to the United States senate whose combined public services have been of lw s . real value to this country than the modest work of Robert Douglas," says The Rural New Yorker. Robert Douglas is tho fat her-of forest tree planting in America. Ho will be 82 years old next April. English born, ho has tried to pra- servo and increase our forest growth Where the native A mevican declared a. war of oskrU-hmiioii oil it. He began raising fruit tree seedlings. Nurserymen and others bought them to graft choice fruit upon. Afterward he added the planting of forest tree seeds. The resulting sprouts ho ruined and kept till they ware a year old, selling them for planting on the western prairies. Filially ho took contracts for planting the' ground himself with tho tree seedlings. In one county alone in western Kansas ho set ont more than 3.000,000 forest trees. He sowed forest tree seeds by tbe acre and likewise transplanted tbe sprouts by tho acre when they wero large enough. Thousands of acres of uoblc forest, north, south, east, west, will stand as his monument when ho dies. When Silver Was at a Premium, The Paris correspondent of Tho Engineering aud Mining Journal hus boon investigating the status of silver with reference to gold in France duriug tho 80 years previous to 1878. He finds t|wt iu all this time the white metal was ut a premium over tho yellow. Ho writes: In a memoir just imblluhod H. da Kovlllo calU attention to tho fuot, which many huvo forgotten, that for a nuiulwr of your* boforo 187!) uilvor wiw uotuully ut u premium—Uiut In, IU nulling jirioo wuv hlghur th»n tho untuli- lluhod coining ratio with sold.

Professor Scott's paper is the rnosl satisfactory contribution to r^nzitit literature that 1ms yet appeared on tht subject of the mysterious Kcoly motor. He takes n middle ground between thosi self conceited individuals who langll tbe whole thing to scorn and the equal ly silly people who see in it a Bupornat- • nral agency that is going to revolution ize man and nature. Professor Scott says there is no doubl bnt Keely has discovered a potential en ergy not subject to the known laws ol either gravity, magnetism or electricity. If this force can be utilized, it will prove immensely superior to anything yet known. Those two points Professoi Scott considers proved. Next he goes into tho consideration of the nature of the force. He reminds us how it is the belief of scientists that the molecules of all bodies are in a state of perpetual motion or vibration. If a musical note can be sounded whos* vibrations will chord with the rate ol vibration of the molecules, then a double force will be brought to bear on them, and they will be disintegrated. Thus it happens that sound causes explosions. This is called explosion by sympathetic vibration. Musical sounds have been known to break glass. Here we see the cause of it This principle holds so true that it would be possible for a musician to "fiddle down" the largest building if be could strike thb keynote of the vibrations of the molecules of which it is composed. -Thus fai one part of the Keely discovery. The next point Professor Scott takes up is the commonly accepted theory ot Helmholtz tbat sound, beat, light aud electricity are produced by vibrations, successively increasing in rapidity, of the universal ether. Below 14 vibrations per second or above 42,000 pci second the vibrations are imperceptible to the human ear as musical sounds. The npper and lower notes of a piano become mere knocks to the ear of many persons. But it is not reasonable to conclude that the vibrations cease when they become so rapid the eye or ear cannot detect them. The vibrations undoubtedly go on np into tbe billions. When light has been separated in Che solar spectrum, there have always been certain dark rays beyond the violet end of the rainbow, which conld not be accounted for. It they bad color, the eye was Uot powerful enough to detect it. Professor Scott's theory is tbat these dark rays represent vibrations of tho ether that count np into the billions in a second, • If, then, a way can be discovered to make a musical note chord with these high vibrations, what will not the resulting power do, since musical notes have already been known to cause explosions of dynamite or other tensely held substances. Once Professor Scott' spoke to John Tyudall about the matter, asking him what would be the result if somehow these billions of vibrations conld be reached, Prpfossor Tyndall aus>yere<), "Possibly energy enough to divert tbe planets from their courses,", Mrs. Bloomneld Mooro believes and Professor Lnscoiles-Soott believes that Keely has' actually found how to, get the keynote in music which will chord with tbe intensely high vibrations of the universal ether. We kliow already what electricity will do, some of its wonders at least. If tho force Keely has found can bo harnessed, it will produce results that it makes tho bead spin to think of. But can these billions of vibrations be harnessed? Mrs. Bloomtlcld Mooro says she has seen solid quartz rook quickly reduced to powder by the motor tbe crank genius has already produced. Keely says ho ascertained "the chord of mass" of tho quartz, simply sounded that note, and tho thing fell to pieces. Aluminium MukoN l'ro(|Ti's«, Iu 1H80 uluuiiuium cost #17 it pound.
