The Spirit Lake Beacon takes the Courier to task for saying that eastern money loaned in the West is sapping the life out of the country, and endeavors to show that it is a great privilege to have such money. Will the Beacon please explain why it is that the west is a borrower and the east a lender. How comes it that the sterile cast is so rich and the fertile west so poor? A little light on this matter may be of interest and information to the readers of the Beacon.—Courier. Here is a professional sympathizer •with tho farmer brazening it out in the declaration that eastern money is a damage to the western borrower—is "sucking the life blood out of the country" in fact. Let the Courier go on and tell how people who went in debt for their farms and .are still in debt in whole or in part for them are ' going to get along and keep their farms without borrowed money. If these men must have money or cease to be farmers,let the Courier explain how it is a disadvantage to them to have the idle capital of the whole country, east and west, to draw upon, and how it would be better for them if they had only the idle capital of the west to draw upon. Let the Courier say whether or not the mortgaged farmers and mortgaged business men of the west would be bankrupted by the withdrawal of eastern money. Does it suppose that there is money in the west to take the place of eastern money invested in western securities? We need not talk about rates of interest. Is there the money to be had in the west at any rate? If there is plenty of money in the west, and if it can be had on easier terms andatlowerrates,why do we haye eastern money out here, anyway '! It looks to us that the editor of the Courier is really afraid that there is some stupid in his list of readers who has failed-to find out that he is a first-class demagog. If he will cept a friendly suggestion he will take that as successfully demonstrated and quite generally understood. If the Courier man will mention his perplexity about the east being so much richer than the west to any one of the children in the primary, department he will be informed that. the people of the east began making money and saving and investing it several Hundred years before the west of to-day had a white settlement. titlzenff to be more or less trusted in em- irgencie% without regard to specific measures or to individual rascalities. 7pon Questions involving political, moral r finqfaial reform and progress, thepre umptibii is generally felt to be against it." "'hat about covers the ground. If it were not for .these questions of "political, moral and financial reform and progress" he democratic party might do. To the Courier, U. D. M. and other ;5ckers against the McKinley bill and ither republican tariff bills, Greeting: four attention is called to the following tatements made by the said McKinley published in the North American leviewi; Before 1820 scarcely any imports were 'ree; in[1824 less than 6 percent, were 'ree; itf 1880 about 7 percent.; in 1833 about 23 per cent.; in 1842 about 27 per cent; and under the low tariff of 1846 only 12per 1 cent.; even the war tariff of .861 raised the proportion to 18 per cent.; )etweeii 1873 and 1883 republican action kept increasing the free list until it stood it 80 per cent, in the latter year; the tar- ff of ;1883 made 33 per cent, of imports ! ree; ths McKinley bill will make the ree list coyer half of all articles import- id. Itf will reduce existing rates by about 10 per cent, on the average of all dutiable articles, and will leave an average rate of duty of 27 per cent. It will diminish the dutiable importations from $484,431,398 to $375,624,087. The number of articles on the free list of the Mills bill would have been less by 10 per cent, than under the McKinley bill, These figures refute the malicious charge of pro- tiibitivencss toward foreign trade so often brought against the bill which, in its main features at least, is all but certain to become a law. Parson Lozier is occasionally demonstrative to a degree inexplicable to the average stolid inhabitant, but his heart is right and his reason sound. He was storming around at Sioux City and de inanding things as usual, but was sup pressed like many a small boy has been when the kind parent intended to give him what was good for him without yielding up the reigns of authority and letting him run the entire shebang. Lozier is as demonstrative as usual since the convention, but only in laudation of the temperance plank and he says that "if a 'third party' lunatic is found raving around through Iowa at ticket or plat form, somebody ought to catch him anc put a mustard plaster on the back of his head cr somewhere else nearest the seat of his emotional nature. The republican party iu Iowa manfully stands by our prohibitory statutes, and the Iowa prohi bitionist who will not now sustain thai party will have all he can do to keep his neighbors from concluding that he is ei tber a little daft at the 'top' or unsound at the 'core.'" The Emmetsburg Democrat concludes that; There is no hope of any concessions bordering on tariff reform as outlined by the enemy, no prospect for a change in the political condition of the western farmers until a democratic congress anc a democratic president gain ascendancy and outline and execute the measures necessary for the attainment of such a result. The general welfare of all toilers demands this change, and it must come cost what legitimate efforts it may. The Democrat has been waiting a good while for "tariff reform as outlined by the enemy" and for "a change in the po litical condition of the western farmers,' and it is not happy. To say that the Democrat is not happy, especially in view of the "political condition" pf the Western farmer is putting it mildly? If the "political condition" of the western ere could be changed as the democratic party has changed the "political condj tion" of the black men of the south, by depriving them of their political rights, the Democrat and all democrats wonit be happier because their party wo«U have more of a show. g^jj^maj^aEUanpiPBBa &R&&™*-- : ~~ ~~~^J- TS-Jin-S ^ ^ .

The writer of the article referred to is under- tood to have been the author of the plat- The fifth plank of the Iowa republican platform is as clear an indorsement of the Conger silver bill as could have been given without naming the bill, which it might well have done. The plank is as follows: "We are in favor of such an expansion of the currency as will meet the growing demands of the increase in population and trade and offset the contraction resulting from the continual withdrawal of the national bank circulation. That to this end/we favor such legislation as will utilize ag, money tlie entire silver product of our mines, and we favor such laws as will aid, in the ultimate unrestricted use of both: the precious metals. The Conger bill contemplates putting every ounipe of silver mined from year to year in tliis country in circulation in the convenient form of silver certificates, anc so "utilizing" it as money. It further provides for its "ultimate unrestricted use" along with gold by admitting it to free coinage as soon as silver is at par. The resolution indorses the action taken unitedly by the Iowa delegation, whose refusal to stoop to the cheap demagogue tactics of the democrats cannot be too highly commended. Eli Perkins is without doubt a lying old sinner, but if he keeps on telling such golden text truths as these, people are going to forget what an awful reputation he has worked up. Hear him: "I have been to Birmingham, England and the manufacturers to a man aredowr on McKinley's tariff bill. Over in Berlin and Chemnitz, Germany last week, every manufacturer I met sau the McKinley bill would hurt German manufacturers. The manufacturers in Belgium and France charge the framers of the Me Kinley bill with favoring America at the expense of'Europe. What, 0 Sun, shall I say to these Eu ropeans? Shall I say I am a free trade* and for them, or for protective tariff am for America? The European manufacturers all tel me with tears in their eyes that protective tariff in America means poverty in Eu rope, and that free trade in Americt means mills running oa full time in Eu rope and weajth to the monarchies. The tariff ^question is plain to every on here," In bis speeph at the Woodstock cele bration, July 4th, Senator Hawley took Bishop Potter to task for some of his re cent utterances regarding the corrupt tendencies of the times and the extrava ganee of pension legislation. He declar ed the Bishop's statements slaaderou and nisekie. vous and said: When the war ended the interest on the public dehtifaaf 151,000,000 a y«ar jXow thwt interest and the pensions to gether only amount to $180,000,000, anc our country has doubled in population and wealai. I believe it is a pretty gooc" country, *nd it» JB about time these pesai mwts stopped talking. The Century fjjr July has articles from Henry George. a.n.d Edward Atkinson dis THissing the $ngjfl tax question.

Wy- ming goes in this week. Fred Faulkes, the Cedar Rapids Ga- ette man, didn't like the tariff plank of he platform. This is one of the num rous signs that the plank is all right, 'here is this beautiful proviso in the plat- orm that nobody's party fealty is to be •auged by his support of the state plat- orm. All he has to do is to stand with »oth feet on the national platform of 888. Bro. Faulkes is sympathizingly re- erred to the McKinley platform, hoping e will like it better. Talking about the tin-plate tariff the Gate City says: Protection would be all right if thirty- sight companies owned these thirty-eight ,in mines and the American people got ,he benefit of competition between them. But when one company owns them all ,hen protection of that company is robbery of the people. And the Sioux City Journal gets up and responds: The fact is that there are a good deal more than thirty-eight tin mines and A good deal more than thirty-eight tin mine ".ompanies in the Black Hills. Some of these kickers mean first rate but they need to post up. The Iowa Homestead comes out very strongly for the renomination of Col. Sweney, the republican member in the fourth congressional district, and urges the farmers to stand by him as he has stood by their interests in congress. There is opposition to Col. Sweney on the part of disappointed applicants for office, and the Homestead thinks the farmers ought to sit down very hard on the latter. The Emmetsburgh Reporter says that three nails of the true cross have been found, and singularly enough they were found in the ruins of a theatre recently burned down in Switzerland. We shall hope that Bro. Bennett will get those nails and bring them to the next editorial convention. The story has all the inherent probabilities of truth. The. Chicago Tribune, which has been getting hotter and hotter all summer about the McKinley wool schedule, be cause it would put up the price of wool and make our clothing immensely expen sive, now changes its cry and says the tariff is not going to have any effect on prices. But it keeps right on kicking. Algona's 4th of July orator told the mugwumps not to be ashamed of their name, and now it remains to be seen whether the admonition will have a stiff ening effect on the backbones of the po Htical hermaphrodites who have been so glad to parade as republicans, The democrats of Kentucky are very naturally somewhat disheartened by the result of the voting for Mr. Carlisle's sue cessor. Carlisle's majority two years ago was 6,020, while that of his successor was a beggarly few hundred. Olive Thome Miller will contribute to Harper's Bazar to be published July 13th another one of her characteristic out door studies, entitled "Catbird Tricks," A Farmer's Platform. Sioux City Journal. The republican platform promulgated by the Sioux City convention, when it is examined in detail, and when the hearti ness of its adoption is remembered, wil be found to be a formulation of the sub stantial demands of the western produc ers. As such the Journal commends as a notable declaration to the candU consideration of the farmers not only . Iowa, but also Nebraska and South Pa kota and other western states, It is worthy of the republican party r Iowa that it should give the signal to the other western states to follow along the line of independent and progressive poll cy which Iowa first forced upon the at tention of the country. The republican party of Iowa was the first instrument by whteh the agricultural classes of the west freed themselves from eastern doming tioa through the political manipulations of the railroad corporations. And for this, in the earlier stages of the struggle which it cost, Iowa was stigmatized No. 40, energy and success, in spite of formid- ible obstacles to enforce these regula- lons in their letter and in their spirit upon the corporations. The sixth plank of the- platform on which the republican party of Iowa plants '•self, therefore, speaks with special sig- nflcance when it appeals to the people o see to it that there be no recession in lie ,iust policy of the state in this regard. As the Iowa legislation for the control of ho railroad corporations has reflected he true interests of the farmers, as well is of the people generally, is there not a pecial obligation upon them to uphold he hands of the party at this time when he corporations still have hopes of regaining their former absolutism, and are plotting to that end? And do not the armors of Iowa indorse this further dec- aration of the platform: "We believe hat the effort to nullify the inter-state commerce law should be resisted, to the vnd that national protection and state protection may alike be equal to all com- nunities and among all classes?" Next to the interest of western farmers n a policy of public control of the means of transportation is their interest iu the noney question. They are to a large cx- en^a debtor class. They are not debtors in any sense of loss, but as a means )f profit, and their industries are to ti urge extent carried on by the aid of jastern capitol. The east as a creditor action has a selfish, interest in making money scarce, in restricting and contract- ng the circulation, and for tue same rea- ' on the west is interested in a more am)le and a more expanded currency. It is nterestecl at least in lopping oil those arbitrary and unreasonable restrictions vhich the east, by its undue influence in the government, has put upon the vol- ime of the national currency. Upon bis vital point the republican party of .owa voices the sentiment of western farmers, boldly and unequivocally, demanding in the fifth plank of its platform free coinage for the entire product of the American mines, and beyond that "such aws as will aid in the ultimate unrestricted use of both the precious metals as money." The same spirit of loyally to western agricultural interests which is illustrated :n the demand for control of corporations and for an expanded currency through free silver coinage, breathes through the tariff plank. The farmers of the west are loyal to the principle of protection to American industry, and the republican party of Iowa stands with them shoulder to shoulder, in the demand that that principle be "applied wisely iu view of the interest of all conditions of our people and in view of the equal interest of all our industries." The republican party of Iowa and the farmers of the west are not indifferent us to whether the effect of a revenue system shall be to depress and to destroy home industries and build up and aggrandize at their expense, foreign interests. But they do maintain that the discriminations shall be in the interests of the masses, and not in behalf of the strong against the weak. The republican, party of Iowa demands a revenue system in the distsibution of whose discriminations the interests of the west shall be equally considered with those of the east. Precisely so the declaration against trust and trade conspiracies intended to destroy competition and perpetuate monopolies is an admirable formulation of the sentiment of western farmers. And the republican party does well, while voicing the sentiment of western farmers and responding to their demands, to express sympathy for the oppressed farmers of the southern states in their terrifflc struggle to break away from the abuses of the democratic party. The southern farmers are or have been for the most part democrats, but they are now in* the midst of a desperate battle against the. rings and commercial monopolies which dominate the democratic organization in order to secure a few of the advantages -and opportunities which the farmers of the republican west enjoy. These southern farmers have a right to expect that western farmers will not con* tribute to their oppression by sending to. congress democrats who could not help, but submit to the behests of the anti- farmer machine of the southern democratic organization. The great body of the Iowa republican' platform, its very soul and life, is itss formulation of the vital interests of the western producing classes. All other declarations are incidental to this central current that flows through the whole- statement, fixing its character as a whole. It is largely a farmer's platform, a broad and safe framework of principles by which they can stand and win, And it is on this line that the west must rally. Let the republicans of Nebraska and South Dakota, those newer lowas of the west, come to the front and keep step with the older lows, FOUND IN THE NEWSPAPBB.
