McFarland, «>f Estherville, a young man well known-in this county and admired for his ability, energy and stalwart republicanism. The republicans of Kossuth will support the ticket with especial .pleasure on his account. Mr. McFarland's' record in tfce legislature will be found unassailable, 'and the crankiest will seek in vain for a-sralid objection to the repubii- can standard bearer. The candidates're- nominated were Capt. Lyons for auditor, John Y. Stone for attorney general, Judge Rothrock for' supreme judge, and-G-. 'B. Pray for felerk of the supreme court, ifcen. Beeson, of Marshall county was nominated for treasurer, and Capt. Lake of Hampton for railroad commissioner. The platform is all that could be Desired. It is especially strong and satisfactory on tke prohibition question. It was seen as long ago as the republicans, of the legislature refused to adopt the suggestions of the liberal wing in anti-saloon convention assembled that there could be but one course for the republican .party of lowai in the future. That course was straight «head, in the paths marked out by republican record and platforms since 1882. :This straightforward and honorable course is taken with great heartiness and without equivocation, and it tevgrati- fying to-see all elements of the party happily united in support of its policy. The protection plank is brief but it covers the s«*»la*Sri(Smdf^^e-' ^publican party is for protection applied "in view ©f the equal interests of all our industries." The currency ,plank could not be bettered. These three planks cover all the debatable grounfl, and they admirably define the attitude of the party. For the ends therein declared the party will be A unit in the 'Campaign and at the polls. WESTEEN INTERESTS. 'People who fancy that Iowa and the «west are'.not getting to the front in national affairs do not read the newspapers to good advantage. We have Allison occupying a position of influence and power, in the seaaite, a position which he re•fused to give .up for the sake of managing the treasury department. Mr. Alii- soa formulated the senate tariff bill two years ago, and his ideas regarding free sugar, outlined in his speeches last fall and urged in >the house committee fey Gov. Gear, have dictated one of the best and most popular features of the McKinley bill, and one which looks to the crea- makes the'gold standard a«d dear money its one idea in finance and the demands of importers and British manufacturers tte end of its economic policy—aad with'tbe-corrupt elements of the gfeat 'cities. In the last senate there were thirty-seven democrats, all : <but four of -tfkom were -southern men. People who are enamored of democratic policies ought to move-south. So far as financial matters are concerned, receat demonstrations of strength in congress have assured the country that the republicanism <rf the extreme western and <Pacific states is more than an offset to amy demand from the east which goes bqyond the requisites of soundness in our currency and security to • irtVAHf.TTlOtlf. in tfMt** « UA .1.- _*•" _ investment in our prises. The groat productive enter republican states of • the Mississippi -valley can dictate about what they like se long as tbe republican 'Party is in power. So soon as the democratic party gets into the saddle the west •will drop to ^position of thirty years The U. D. M» has given -out its ultimatum to the democrats, represented by the Carroll, Sentinel, and says-there is no use talking/so long as the negroes are not allowed to vote. It can stand everything else but it draws the liae on the negro vote. We believe the democratic party would sooner try to .keep in politics without Harvey's vote if it can get the republicari party to worry along without the votes ;of several hundred thousand negroes. And in the meantime our co- temporary can adopt tbe heroic challenge of the valiant James Fitz James, which if we recollect aright was something like this: 5 Come one, como all, This rook shall fly, . Erorn its ten base, ' In a pig's eye. If the tender feelings of the free trade democrat .-are ever worse torn up and outraged.-ebout anything than about the way the millionaire robber manufacturers combine, form trusts, put up prices and rob.the farmers, that time is when the protectionist -republicans refuse to give these same millionaire, robber/bloodsucker manufacturers free raw materials farmer and at the farm! manufacturer's •• expenses and up his already enormous profits. putting Eh? The liarshalltown Times-Republican says that '<if any one imagines that Jim Blaine, w&o has succeeded in giving an emphatic and dignified American character to the state department, is buried in the public service so as to be a stranger to Iowa republicans, he should have attended 'the republican convention at Sioux Citj. Among the names incidentally mentioned by Temporary Chairman Weaver was,that of Blaine. If the convention had been a sky rocket and the name a lighted .match, the contact would have produced >no more of an explosion. It was several minutes before Mr. Weaver was allowed to proceed. Blaine was not thought of before or after, and that spontaneous tribute was simply Iowa's little annual bow to the man from Maine." HOII. S. M. W«av*.r' S speedi m Temporary Chairman of the Republican State Convention. A political party which represents no fixed or definite principle of public policy or public morals has no excuse for existence. Search history from its earliest dawn, and in no other period of thirty years in any land or nation will you find crowded so much of genuine progress and great achievement. And yet can you point to a single material step in that mighty advance, to a single item in that list of achievements which was not inaugurated m the face of democratic opposition and accomphahed oyer democratic protest? Not one. The republican party stands for the protection, prosperity and honor of America and American labor. They have called it "tariff, with incidental protection," revenue tariff," "tariff for revenue only," and Mr. Cleveland has re christened the thing "tariff reform," but under all these paltry disguises the thought has remained the same, "free trade throughout the world." The man is a demagogue, though he call himself a "reformer," who teaches the people that all their financial difficulties may be cured by an act of congress, and certain disappointment waits tke man who puts confidence in such teachings. The republican party stands for the maintenance of our national faith with the uniou soldier. The party was the soldier's friend when he went to the front, and in that friendship it has neverf altered.' Its zeal for the veteran is no after-thought, no new discovery, no weak, sickly imported plant which has had to be acclimated in a strange soil and nursed and watered into an appearance of life during the last dozen years. Can the democratic party'look the wcrld in the eye and without blushing claim as much for itself? Harrison in of thought and freedom of counsel, but it does not believe in that snarling, vicious independence which, while wearing the party's name, keeps its knife up to the hilt in the party's vitals. In other words, it draws the line between a clear head and an honest heart on the one hand, and sore head and sour stomach on the other." The republican party has given the stale an honest and economical administration. --,- — speaker's chair as serene under the storms of democratic abuse as the Rock of Gibralter under the pelting of an April shower, is one which every republican can contemplate with intense satisfaction. In all this great republican state there is but one office from that of governor down whose salary will equal that of thousands of book-keepers and traveling salesmen all over the land—and that one exceptional office is today filled by the chairman of the democrat state central committee. If he finds his salary too great, he will, of course, take pleasure in covering the excess into the public treasury. Down With the Tin-Plate Monopoly. Inter-Ocean. The more thoroughly the tin-plate question is studied the more plainly does it appear that protection to this industry is needed. It cannot be pretended by the most unscrupulous free trade writer that the present duty is sufficient to protect the American trade, for not a single box of American made tin-plates has been put upon the market in the last eleven years. It cannot be pretended that the establishment of this industry would be beneficial mainly to great capitalists. For the tin-plate industry is more dependent upon hand labor than is any great manufactory now in operation. Tin-plates are iron or steel plates coated with tin or lead. The work of coating the iron or steel plates is almost entirely performed by hand. The bill which America yearly pays to Great Britain for tin-plates ts about $25,000,000. This sum paid to our own manufacturers would, in great part, be transferred by them to operatives; in greater part than any $25,000,000 paid to manufacturers of any other form of iron or steel, or in greater part than any $25,000,000 paid to cotton or woolen manufacturers. There scarcely is any manufactured article of which any dollar's worth of price includes so many cent's worth of labor as the article of tin plate. ^ So that no industry so largely productive of consumers of farm products as that of tin-plates can be introduced to our country. Hence, even were it certain that American made plates would sell somewhat higher than British made; the country could afford to pay> say $ST;- orer to Wtfig M chasing power pf our home market which $25,000,000 spent at home would give. But there is no reason ,to believe that American made tin-plates would sell at higher prices than British imports now sell. Experience has proven that protection has stimulated competition, and thus has reduced price. The free traders tionof* great western industry, the pro ductioa of beet sugar.

Gear and other western men 'in th« drafting of that measure was such thai every western interest that could be aided by prelection secured increased duties. The bill 'ia thus in strong contrast in this respect with the Mills .bill, which put ev- <ery northern agricultural product, including flax seed and wool, OH the free list. The silver tell is a western rather than an •eastern measure and will be put through by western men. Conger, of Iowa, the chairman of tbe coinage committee, re- pouted the bill and has managed it with great skill and success, and it will become alawwithonlyolight modification from the original dr*ft. This bill w jji p m every ounce of silver mined in tbe country in circulation as money, giving a great stimulus to business, enhancing prices and making easier times. Struble, another Iowa man, as the head of the committee on territories, has exerted a great influence in directing the tide in favor of western political interests and laying the [foundations for western political dominion in the admission of new states In these great national measures Iowa leadership has had a moulding influence. In debate Iowa is ably represented in the ta»je by Henderson, DoUiveraad others, while 4ilison in the senate ranks with Edmunds and Sherman. Speaking in a larger sense, the west is outgrowing the east and will dominate in national affairs more and more so long as the republican party holds the reins of government.

POT the National Educational Associa- Convention, to be held at St. Paul, «rsion tickets will For the Fourth ticjfceta may be sold for for the round What is it that has brought comfort to the heart and light to the eye of Iowa democracy? Listen, O ye heavens, and give ear, 0 ye earth! It expects to ride into power ia this proud state of Iowa on the back of the exiled saloon. Do you believe it will do it? No! a thousand times no! At no less than eighteen different elections the democratic party went before the people of Iowa declaring for a repeal of this law and preaching the beauties of license; and on every occasion, after free and full discussion, it was met with the emphatic answer, "Away with your bribe!" Be not deceived. If the republican party of Iowa cannot live with out the saloon it cannot live with it. There is no affinity between them. Whatever con cessions you make, the saloon will instinctively recognize its natural enemy and its knife will ever be at the party's throat. Though you court its favor it will spurn you; and though you hold out the arms of entreaty it will hie away to its native refuge in the bosom of the democratic party— ' "Two mtnda with but a single thought. Two hearts that beat as one." The saloon is tbe relentless enemy of the human race, the arch conspirator against society, the robber of the poor, the grinning skeleton that sits at the table of the rich, the destroyer of domestic peace, the chief ally of the gambling hell and brothel, tbe well spring of riot, the rock upon, which countless noble lives have been wrecked, the fatal breach ia our wall of defense through which protrudes tbe red flag of anarchy. It has not one redeeming feature. It never brought an hour's health, comfort or happiness to « single human being, never added a dollar to the wealth of a community, and never paid a tax which it did uot from the pockets of labor. Upon its head rejts the disapproval of good men, the hatred of good women, and the. withering have not yet beea able to point to a single protected manufacture in which the tariff duty has been added to the price. They keep on saying that it is; but in answer to a thousand challenges they never have dared to name an article in general use in which protection has not stimulated competition and lower price. But protection to tin-plates is needed to prevent us from paying a higher price for thorn than we now do; The London Ironmonger, of Aug. 10, 1889, said: "If this scheme (the increase of American duty) succeeds, then there is no doubt that a great deal of American capital will be embarked promptly in the business, and the tin plate trade will cease to be a monopoly in Wales." We beg the reader to weigh this British testimony. It is for the maintenance of "a monopoly" and of a British monopoly, that the opponents of protection to American-made tin-plates are working. A monopoly can make prices to be as high as it pleases. The Welsh tin-plate monopoly was about to raise the price when the prospect of the passage of tbe McKinley bill called it to a halt. Mi. Rogers, manager of the largest tin-plate works in Wales; said on March 1 of this year that he had declined to accede to the proposition of stopping his works (on trust plan), and so diminishing production and increasing price, because "such a course will strengthen the demand for increased protection to American-made plates." The mere shadow of the McKinley bill prevented the British monopolist from raising American prices. The success of his free trade friends in America would make the prwer of the British tin-plate monopoly absolute. And prices would go up. The free trader is a friend to moaop* oly in tin-plates; the protectionist is its . deadly enemy. JilGHT.
