Wolfe, the Democratic candidate for Judge of the Supreme Court: Senator Wolfe is now serving, his sec ond term in the Iowa Senate, ipi record in that body is a repetition of votes cast, We would like to see about fifty or sixty such men as "Tama Jim" Wilson in Congress. He has more good, sound sense, a better knowledge of national affairs and the needs of good government than a house full of some of those who are there misrepresenting different por tions of the country.—Cedar Rapids Gazette. Hon. George L. Converse, of Ohio, a well known Democrat, endorses Mr. McKinley and the McKinley bill. It is encouraging to find at least one Democrat sufficiently loyal to the interests of his own state and countryto say so and stand by it. Mr. Converse is in favor of the great wool growing interests of Ohio and so is Mr. McKinley and the McKinley bill. The Democracy thought to give prohibition a black eye when it put on foot the Colored Anti-Prohibition League movement. It is safe to say that the movement does not have the sympathy of any but the lower class of the colored citizens. Prohibition is going to live in Iowa in spite of the Democrats, Colored Anti- Prohibition Leagues, and Third Party fanatics. TheU. D. M. astonished its readers last week by coming right out and commending the votes of Senators Wilson and Allison on one of the items of the tariff bill, and denouncing the REPUBLICAN as a traitor for taking a different view. Is the U, D. M. then going to renounce Cleveland as its authority? And is it going Republican? But no, the light breaks. This was a case where our senators voted with the Democrats I Hon. Jas- Wilson, in the REPUBLICAN'S Farm Department, this week, declares for protection for binder twine. Mr. Dolliver, our representative in Congress, however, very strongly favors putting the article on the very lengthy free list already agreed upon, and our Senator Allison is the chief advocate of free twine in the committee of conference which is now having the final tussle with the different bills of the house and senate. So we statesmen differ. * The Register has the following Washington special under date of the 30th, which will be of interest especially to the people of bis district: Congressman Dolliver, of Iowa, whose eloquence as a Republican orator is CLOW national, today said: "I r-"' • -- wWi the appointment of u the tariff bill. Gov. Gean . . sennit h§ve been on the s^BBftfctee^w stand* stand up for and defend the senate „„„„, ^ cu amendment placing binder twine on the for riffht , free list. It seems to me that our farmers 'S"" 0 ought to have an especial friend . upon that committee, such as Gear would be; but, of course, the speaker couldn't put The whole article is nothing but a whin- nil nf nnr frionrta rir>r\ri thn n/\tv>mitfn n . *> * ™mn all of our friends up'on the committee. Aside from that one item we will come out of tho conference committee alhight, and our people will be universally well pleased with the McKinley bill. It is the best bill for the interests of the west that has been proposed in Congress since the war. Everything used to be framed in the interest of New England." The few members of the Democratic congressional committee who met at Webster City last week decided to put up I. L. Woods, of Ft. Dodge, against Mr. Dolliver. Mr. Woods was a candidate for the nomination at the convention which nominated Mr. Russell. His defeat did not discourage him, and when Russell declined Woods very slyly got himself nominated by a few men in his county as the Union Labor candidate. There was nobody present from outside of Webster county, but the pretended nomination was the club that compelled the committee at Webster City to put him on the ticket. His nomination, however, has caused the Duncombe element to bolt, and with the opposition of what has heretofore been the controlling element of the Webster county Democracy, Mr. Woods is not likely to have very smooth sailing, Mr. Duucombe's paper exposes the pretense that Woods is a farmer candidate and says that he is not a farmer and has not been for a long time and that he has not even a farm. The Chronicle taxes him with having been conspicuously absent when the vote was taken in the legislature last winter to reduce interest from 10 to 8 per cent., a measure he was pledged to support. For these and other reasons the Webster county delegation was opposed to him at tho convention and also in the committee which nominated him, but with Woods begging very bard for the empty honor, and having DO competitor, so that it was Woods or nobody, it was not easy to deny him. TO REPUBLICAN FARMERS. The last issue of the Courier contains a word to the Republican farmers of the Tenth Congressional District. To quite a to 8tav oa large number of these Republican, farmers the Courier is indebted for its lift in tbe matter of the county printing. Because it was able to work- the charity racket on so many of them last year just after its very fortunate lore, it flatters itself to be leading a great number of the respect. Republican farmers, not only of the whole Tenth District! Voter" no&a, „ It contain* %el«eD usual Democratic rot about "standing up and "simple self-evident jus tice," etc. etc. Did Bro. Hinchon forget that he was talking to intelligent men? ing appeal to the Republicans of the Tenth to help the Democrats of the Tenth out of the soup, and reaches its climax in the last paragraph when Bro. Hinchon says: "The duty you owe to yourselves and to the cause of justice is to vote for Hon. I. L. Woods for Congress." Perhaps its Republican friends will feel as little flattered at the advances of the Courier, as did Mr. Russell upon receiving the nomination. It is hard for a sensible man to read that editorial and keep down his gorge. Hear a few of its sentiments: "In the name of our common coun- tryand our common interests, we implore you to listen to the voice of reason and lay aside any foolish prejudice that may still warp your good judgment, and deter you from independent action." "Republican friends, the Democrats of this district have gone more than half way to meet you. In selecting a candidate for Congress they selected a Republican in order to please you." "Will the tax-ridden Republican farmers come to his (Mr. Woods) support, as the Democrats would have supported Mr; Russell?" "Gentlemen, you have a duty to perform and if on account of fear or favor or prejudice, you fail to perform it you are not the free men that you ought to be." Could such sentiments as the above come from a mau with a backbone m his back? Can any party base an honest claim to the support of thinking men upon such argument as the above? The Courier pays a very high compliment to the intelligence of its "Republican friends." THE FARMER AND THE TARIFF The REPUBLICAN seems to be the ef>- pecial target at which the shots of all the "political what Is it's" in the county are directed. Every oae knows the position of the RBPTOWCAN, politically. We stand with both feet on the Republican platform, right near the center of that platform and right square over the protection plank. If we could bring ourself sides of the fence, as well as roost on top of it and sit under it at one and the sam.e time, like certain other of our Algona contemporaries too well known to need mention/we might gain the plaudits of a sore headed few but we would lose considerable of our self- „„,.- himself "BepubMcan writing editorials for the and considers certain »ytfes worthy an attack to the extent of a half column of his logic. The very backbone of Republicanism is and always has been the policy of protection. Under this pol icy the industries of the country have been fostered and developed, and no class has profited more by this policy than the farmers, and in reality we have no other class of people in Iowa. If our friend, the Republican Voter, will borrow a United States history and read the history of this country for the last 25 years, and read it honestly, he will find written beneath every line that tells of prosperity, something about the Ameri can policy of protection. The RBPUBLI CAN is unequivocally in favor of protec tion in its highest form. "The present Congress was elected on pledge to reduce the tariff," says this Republican Voter. Will he please tell the readers of the Reg ister in his next article how much the McKinley bill will increase the revenue of this country. He doesn't seem to know that the fraraers of the McKinley bill aimed at a substantial reduction of the revenues. The general policy of the bill in McKinley's own words is "to foster and promote American production and diversification of American industry." How does this bill expect to accomplish this. By a readjustment of the tariff to present conditions, preserving all the protection necessary to the life and vigorous growth of our industrial interests and at the same time reducing the revenue from customs and internal revenue sources. This Republican Voter kicks because the tariff bill increases the duty on tin plates, wool, flax, and many articles of necessity. Doesn't he Jpow that these articles are all produced in this country, or ought to be, and doesn't be know that a duty on wool and on flax and on other farm products means more protection and better prices for the farmer? 850,000,000 pounds of wool were imported last year, which might have been produced in this country, and will eventually be produced here with tbe protection offered by the McKinley bill. Properly protected, flax and hemp will put millions of dollars annually into the pockets of the American farmers, and the Kossuth county farmer will get his share. Look what the tariff bill does (or the American farmer. His horses, cattle, sheep, hogs, bacon, barley, beans, peas, beef, mutton, pork, buckwheat, butter, cheese, eggs, hay, hops, milk, poultry, flax seed, vegetables, po' tatoes, flax, hemp, hides, wool, tobacco, etc.—almost every product of the farm- are protected from foreign competition, WWwU the farmer who can cast blabaJ lot for the democrat who tried to tint m »*<i science when he remembers his duty to the agricultural interests of this country? We don't believe this Republican Voter ever saw an abstract of the tariff bill. He objects because the duty has been removed from tobacco. The bill aims to increase the duty on tobacco, encouraging its production by the American farmer, but to abolish tbe internal revenue, which is a direct tax on dealer and consumer. The Republican party stands right by the farmer. In regard to binding twine, read what "Tama Jim"says in this issue. He expresses our sentiments exactly, OH CONSISTENCY THOU ART A DAISY. The Humboldt Independent is a very consistent little sheet. In its issue of September 18th it devotes about a half column to the attempt to show that Jas. Wilson of Tama is writing those agricultural articles at the instigation of the Republican campaign committee. The editor of the Independent didn't know when he clipped a little article article from the Webster City Freeman and published it, that he was publishing one of the infamous "Tama Jim" campaign items. This item may be found in its last issue sandwiched in between a slur on "Panhandle Jim" Wilson and a quarter of a column of trash about the Republican campaign committee and "Tama Jim's" agricultural articles.
