Beeson's cUancee for StaleTrewwer bss been «o tborougbiy exposed fo4 The Des Moines Hews, which baa taken great interest in Tenth district politics of late,and has been watching them close' y, very pertinently remarks that, "Congressional matters in the Tenth district are in a somewhat chaotic condition in Democratic circles." They do look somewhat ''chaotic," that's a fact. "Chaotic" s a good word. N Mr. Dolliver has brought the Tenth congressional district of Iowa into national prominence, and has made his re-election sure by his course in congress during this his first term. With Mr. Woods in the field against him he will have a "walk away," The Duncombe element in the Democratic party of the Tenth district will carry sufficient influence alone, to defeat Mr. Woods. The Iowa State Register of August 19th cleverly shows that the comparative prices of farm implements in this country and Spanish America, quoted by the Leader, are false. The farmers certainly know what they pay for farm implements, and it is surprising that the Leader would have the cheek to publish a false list of prices. The Leader quotes the price of a mower in this country at $65. The very best machines can be bought for $50 and some as Jow as $35. The hay rake sells for $45 according to the Leader, but the very best to be had sells for $85. Cultivators are quoted at $30, when they can be bought as low as $18, and the best in the market for $20. This is enough to show the miserable fallacy of the cam paign arguments that are going the round of the Democratic papers. The American farmer has good reason to thank heaven that he lives in America. iow that exhaustion was brought about, but thereby hangs a tale which tells with emarkable clearness the story of Eebub- lean statesmanship. The present administration presents no tronger contrast to its immediate predecessor than it does in this very respect. Prom the day of its advent to power un- 51 the 3rd of August, 1887, a period of nearly two years and a half, the Clove- and administration did not reduce the national debt one dollar; It hoarded the surplus and used it as a bugbear to scare the people. This administration has been n power now a little over one year and a lalf, and during that time has reduced .he national debt to the extent of $140,000,000. This has been done by purclias- ng government bonds at the average rate of $8,200,000 per month. At this rate the jurchases will amount to nearly $250,000,000 during the period corresponding to the one during -which Cleveland made no reduction whatever. Does Colonel Vilas think the citizens of Wisconsin will object to that sort of "ex- aaustion," or by their votes next November condemn it? The interest bearing debt is now less than $700,000,000. One more administration like the present one and there would be nothing left of that debt but a reminiscence. At the rate of four per cent.the annual interest on $140,000,000 amounts to $5,600,000, or nearly half a million a month. That is a saving which, properly expended for needed in ternal improvements, would make a perceptible difference with the prosperity of the country, and with what the govern ment could afford to do in the way of pensions. Next to its efforts to get the kangaroo introduced into this country the Courier is giving its greatest efforts to working up a sentiment for free binding twine, with the idea of utilizing it, of course—what ever it may have intended with regard to the kangaroo—for the benefit of the Dem ocratic ticket. Last week it filled its editorial page with characteristically bril liant dashes at the binding twine tarifl and at Congressman Dolliver. The latter has declared himself in favor of free twine, but that does not help him with the Courier, which would have hfad him vote against the McIQnley bill because it did not meet his views in this respect There is one thing the Courier does nol know—possibly because it has given so much of its study to the problem of do mesticating the festive kangaroo. That one thing, pertinent to the question at is sue, is that the Hills bill put a bigger tar iff on binding twine than the Republican bill does. The Courier will do well to leave the kangaroo alone till after elec tiou and read up on the Democratic plat form. It will find that Democracy means high tariff on binding twine and that Re publicanism means low tariff on thatarti cle. The question now is whether the Courier will renounce the Democratic party, just at the moment when it has come to be recognized as the leading Dem ocratic paper in the county. THE NEW TARIFF. The conferees on the tariff bill reached an agreement the last of the week, am their report, after a brief debate, wai agreed to by the house Saturday. It was taken up in the senate Monday and wa probably agreed to last night, preparatory to the adjournment of congress to-day The new law is expected to reduce the revenues by about 60 millions of dollars per annum. It places articles on the fre list which last year paid duties amount ing to 109 million dollars, or substantially one-half of all our imports—the larges free list ever enacted by any American congress. The free list is made up wholly of articles which do not compete with American goods, and upon which the tariff has been a tax paid by tbe consum er. The Mills bill transferred but 28 millions to the free list. Among the arti cles on the free list under the new law are raw sugars and molasses, sisal, manilla and jute. Tbe tariff on binding twine is put at seven-tenths of a cent per pound Refined sugar is made dutiable at one half cent per pound. The sugar bounty provision is retained as is the tin plate duty, which will call into existence a new industry and, if the effect is in this as i has been with all other manufactured ar tides, reduce prices. Of course Elaine's reciprocity measure was incorporated into the Jaw withou objection except from the democrats. The law is a conscientious and a com plete fulfilment of tbe pledges of the re publican platform of 1888 and is declare to be the most perfect protection law ever enacted. 8VXPLVS "BXHAV8TIQN." Inter Ocean: The resolution reportet by Col. Vilas to tlxe Wisconsin Democrat ic State Convention contained among other things of much the same »ort, tbe statement tfcat "the present nat^oaal ad ministration haj already iw|« surpltts received from ita " THE DEMOCRATIC GAME IS UP. The Keokuk Gate City, a paper that prides itself on its conservatism, makes this observation on the present political situation which tallies well with the in dications from all sections of the state: The Republican campaign in Iowa will be an aggressive and victorious one this fall. Reports from various parts of tbe state indicate that already much enthu siasm has been aroused in the Republi can ranks, that will swell and increase as election day approaches. In every locality the political situation isgratifyingand a feeling of assurance permeates the at mosphere. No well informed and intel ligent reader or careful observer of political tendencies for a moment believes that the Democrats will elect a single candidate on their entire state ticket. The situation in the several congressional districts is equally as encouraging. John H. Gear will defeat John J. Seerley in the First, D. B. Henderson will defeat C. P Couch in the Third. G. R. Struble will de feat John T. Hamilton in the Fifth, and John F. Lacey will defeat F. E. White in the Sixth. These districts the Democrat ic press has asserted and repeatedly reit crated the assertion, were doubtful. BINDING TWINE. People who may have worked them selves into a serious frame of mind over the proposition to retain a small fraction of the tariff on binding twine will do wel to read what is said by the Minneapolis Tribune. The Tribune is one of the ables journals in the west and is published in the state of Senator Davis. Looking a the question from a Minnesota stand point, which is the Iowa standpoint, be cause of tho immense quantities of ou flax straw that go to waste annually, the Tribune says: The Northwestern Senators are holding out stubbornly at Washington in favor ol free binding twine. The conferees of the two houses are ready to make the duty much lower than it was in the origina house bill. The northwestern men claim that the twine business is controlled by a close combination. But they do not show that the tariff facilitates such combina tion, or that twine for binding can be im ported more cheaply from abroad. The real remedy for our farmers is to develop the industry further, and to use twine made from fibre produced here in the northwest. We doubt vary much whether it is worth while for our Senators to op pose so determinedly the judgement o the rest of the party on this point. Binding twine as a product largely used is of recent date. It cannot long be mo nopolized to the disadvantage of the wheat growers. We are about to expert ment with its manufacture in tbe Minne sota state prison atStillwater. In the long run a tariff thatstimulates the manufacture of binding twine from the flax straw tha rots in northwestern fields is what woulc benefit our farmers most. It will tak two or three years to bring this resul about, because new machinery must be devised and the whole industry must be developed from the beginning. But th< feasibility of this use of flax straw is be yond question. Extract From DoJHvey's PJiil»deJiioia Speech. A multitude like this, come togethe with one accord, is an unanswerable wit ness that tbe Republicanism of Pennsyl vania is getting rid of that tired feeling (Laughter.) It indicates (bat if this is an off year in Pennsylvania politics, you ar evidently not in tbe secret. (Laughter. It recognizes the conspicuous fact tha Pennsylvania is unavoidably national in ita political influence. (,Applause.) Sue! » state does not live for itself alone, ther can such a state turn away from it traditions in order to undo tbe work o Republican conventions, to disparage Re publican nominations, or to discredit the l«cepted leadership of tbe party, wUbout pjactag §& extra burdwi f tbe tTilHed States. (Applause.) T act gives me warrant, though a stranger^ o exhort the Republicans of Penttsyl- v ania to preserve in the returns of this ear's election the pre-eminence of this plendid commonwealth in the roll call of Republican States. (Applause.) This is a year filled with the splendor )f Republican achievtnent. (Applause.) The party has renewed the exultant vigor f its youth in Congress and out. The most significant progress of popular gov- rnmcnt since the abolition of slavery was the emancipation of the House of lepresentatives (applause) last winter by he genius of Thomas B. Reed—that fear- ess leader whose uplifted gavel will land in all time to come for the integrity )f legislative proceedings. (Loud and ong continued applause.) From 1890 orward the heroes of a hundred motions o adjourn (laughter) must find new fields for their motley talents. They are a back number in congress. (Laughter.) Gone also is that incredible stupidity, once thought to be the essence of the onstitution, that in counting a quorum called a man absent because you could not hear him, notwithstanding the fact that you could see him and see through urn. (Laughter and applause.) It was 'ormerly thought that you can lead a lorse to water but cannot make him drink. We have lived to see the horse ed to water and if not made to drink, his nose at least held in the trough long enough to count 166. (Long continued aughter.) It was formerly feared that, to openly count a man present who was present, would provoke the outbreak of a volcana. But in the light of our exper- ence there is a color of laughter in the .dea of Mr. Breckenridge, of Kentucky; Mr. Bynum, of Indiana; Mr. Springer, of [llinois, with others, forming a syndicate to start a volcano. (Loud laughter.) It might have bqen easily foreseen that the predicted ordeal of the elements, like the advertised features of a menagerie,would dwindle from the dignity of a volcano to the less impressive phenomena of a nat ural gas explosion. (Loud laughter.) It is certain that neither silence nor noise can stop the proceedings of the House. To-day the House is free, if a majority Is present, to proceed with the public business. And on that question the good sense of therAmerican people is with the Speaker. (Loud applause.) The election in Maine shows it—(long continued applause.) where four candidates for congress went up in the balloon of Democratic prospects and walked back. (Loud laughter and applause.) The elec tion in Pennsylvania will show it. (Ap plause.) For if there is any section o: the country that prefers a paralytic Con gress, (laughter) an impotent House ol Representatives, (laughter) a governmen 1 with curvature of the spine, (loud laugh ter) it is not this magnificent common wealth of yours. (Applause.) No man need fear that the element of deliberation is eliminated from our legislative pro ceedings. It is gone only in so much as it ought to go. The value of speechmak IDS is settled by the habits of tho House A week's debate amounts to a week's va cation. In this view of the facts it ap pears absurd for people to lament the dis appearing freedom of debate in congress An- assembly of speechmakers can nr more be expected to listen to speeches than a conference of doctors to open thel proceedings by passing around the pills (Loud laughter.) It requires the larges charity of the imagination to find in the senate the features of a deliberative body I went the other day into ancient polit ical retreat. I found seven men nodding in their chairs, thirty four in various at titudes of repose in the cloak rooms while in tbe midst of the seven stood venerable figure. I paused to listen, am as the old man turned a corner in his dis course, solemnly asserting that the tarif is a tax (laughter), I could hear a melo dious snore from the cloak rooms (laugh ter) and by a simple act of the imagina tion I could bear tbe snore of tbe wbol country. (Loud laughter.) Small in size, great in results; DeWitt'i Little Early Risers. Best pill for consti pation, best for sick bead ache, best for sour stomach. Sold by Dr. Sheetz. Accident Insurance.
