VOL. XX. ALGONA, KOSSUTH OOTTNTY, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, OOT, 15, 1890. No. 2. LGONA REPUBLICAN ffiVKKY WffiDNKSDAy TARR * HALLOCK, Proprietors. JOS, W. HAYS, Editor. DOLLIYER B AMOIA HON. J. P. DOLLIVER Will discuss the issues of the campaign at Court House Hall, Algona, Thursday, October 23, at 7:30 P.M. All are invited. John Boyle O'Reilly used to say that he found the true fraternal spirit to exist at jts best iu couvicts, spldiqrs and journalists.—Ex, The Republican party prdpdSes to "put a tin head" on the foreign manufacturer, and proposes to use home made tin for the purpose. The REPUBLICAN regrets that lack of space prevents its publishing Mr Dolliver's speech of Sept. 27th. in the house of representatives. It is one of the best arguments in favor of the Republican party, and in favor of having the Tenth district continue to bo represented by a Republican that we have seen anywhere. Not the least interesting feature of the fall campaign in the Des Moines district is the bar movement, as it is termed, representing a ticket for judges put up by the bar association, The movement is meeting strong opposition, as it ought to. The lawyers have always had more to say in the selection of judges than the good of the people would suggest. The TJT. D. M. made a whole article of rant about the new tariff law on the strength of an alleged declaration of Ex-President Hayes against it. Mr. Hayes was quoted as saying; "I •cannot find words to express my regret at the passage of the measure. It is ruiaous to all our interests, and it will do an infinite amount of liana." Mr. Hayes now comes out in emphatic denial of the interview, the Ctricago Tribune of 'Saturday , last giving a statement fromMnvasfollows: FREMONT, O., Oct. 9.—The alleged interview is a fabrication. No interview on the subject occurred. I never said anything of the sort to anybody. I never submit to be interviewed >on political subjects. Sincerely, RUTHERFORD 33. HAYES. We trust the U. D. M. will give its (readers the above denial. practical debater, and Mr. Dolliver is n6t going to bully-rag him. Mr. Dolliver is an orator and debater of the first rank and Mr. Woods is nowhere, and of course all talk of a debate between them is a joke. But how much does the proposition to send Mr. Woods instead of Mr. Dolliver to congress lack of being a joke also? We have one democrat in th8 present congress from Iowa. He is a keen and able fellow, and might be expected to do some services for the state, notwithstanding his politics. But he has been a mere creature of the southern majority. They made him vote against the pure lard bill because it forbids t.he sale of cotton .seed oil under the brand of "pure refined lard." Every other vote from Iowa was for justice to the Iowa interest. Mr. Dolliver made a most effective appeal to the committee for this bill. Hayefc, bright as ho is, could not stand against the pressure of his party associates, They did the same thing with him on the lottery bill. The tea republican votes from Iowa were for the suppression of the lot tery business, but the lone democrat from Iowa went with his southern friends.. The same was true tin-ought the entire session. Now, wherein would the people of Iowa be benefited if Mr. Woods was added to Mr. Hayes and his party and Mr. Dolliver subtracted from the ten republicans and their party? Does anybody claim that Mr. 4 Woods, whe does not even attempt to maintain his views before a school house gathering of his neighbors, would make any converts among congressmen, or have any views there? That would be as clearly a joke as to talk of his debating with J. P. Dolliver. Mr. Woods has his uses no doubt. He has been servicable in helping to get up a great row in the democratic party here, but he would not be heard of at Washington even to the extent of kicking in a door. We wouldn't have the worst congressman there by any means, if Mr. Woods should happen to be elected. He wouldn't steal anything or be bribed by anybody, and before he became a professional politician (a candidate for three offices, and for one of them in two convention*, this summer) he lived on a farm. The first two are important quili- ficatioas, but they do -not'alone make a, good legislator. The republican candidate is his equal in integrity and his superior in every other (qualification. WONDERFUL GEOWTR •THE COURIER'S PHILOSOPHY. As one of our hard ware'.merchants was rolling in one of those little boxes of tin "into his store the other day, he remarked that when the McKinley toil! went into effect those little boxes would cost one dollar apiece more than 'they now cost. Who will pay this extra-dollar, Mr. Reader? It is the consumers'ef course. And think of it, friends, there is not an ounce of tin manufactured in the United States. —Courier. Strange that an acknowledged free trade paper should'thus give itself away. The Democratic party favors a tariff for revenue only, What is-a tariff for revenue only? A tariff which does not comprehend the protection 'element, It is a tax on goods which are not produced in this country and the coBsumer pays the tax-. Now read that flipping from the 'Courier again. Mr. H&nchon favors a •tariff for reyenue only, but complains •that ia the case of tin where the foreigner has no competition, the -consumer has to tpay the tax. "There te oot an ounce of ••tin manufactured ia the United States;" •"Think of it friends,"" and remember that the Democrats would have that state of Affairs continue. The {Republican party would like to see a lew ounces of tin manufactured right here at home. At present we are at the mercy of a foreign market, and have to pay just what the foreigner asks or go without tin. What wonder if the consumer does have to pay the tax under the existing conditions. Th« McKinley bill may «au*e a like ef- fectan the case of other articles than tin and the effect will remain «o long as ire are vt the mercy of a foreign manufacturer, With the article manufactured at home the c&9e will be entirely different. Just look at nails. We manufacture nails iii this, country and you can actually buy a fceg ef jjails for less than the tariff on those nails amounts to itself. Will the Courier please tell its readers this week, bow many articles upon the McKinley bill schedule cannot be manufactured in this country, and then will it please tell its readers why it ia in favor of a system that p«t8 it ia the power of the foreigner to majfe us, pay the tax on tin and other article a that we do not manufacture.

What Protection Has Done and "Will Do for Us—Wonderful Statistics llolating to Our Growth In Thirty Tears—Increase lu Wages and Number Employed. The following interesting statement of our national prosperity under existing economic conditions is taken from Senator Hiscock's speech on the silver question, in the senate, June 5, "Senator Plumb asks: 'Why change tariff legislation as such prosperity exists? 1 It may be answered that the efficacy of tariff legislation having been demonstrated by results, it is now time to mako that legislation more complete, to fortify it where it has been proved to be weak, and extend it to industries and localities which have not hitherto enjoyed its advantages. "Let mo invite your ^tteution foV & moment to our ows. industries, the manufacture of cottons, woolen goods, chemicals, paper, agricultural implements, lumber, flour, glasa, iron and steel and shipbuilding, the leading industries of our country. "These industries are so organized that their reports practically givo- 119 their condition now as compared with ten yeara ago. The estimated capital employed in 18DO is $1,784,740,082 as against $1,105,015,748 for 1880; the hands employed in 1800 is estimated at 1,874,383 as against 844,776 in 1880; there was paid in wages in 1880 $256,795,327, and it i3 estimated that §350,089,508 will be paid in 1890; the value of material used in I860 was $1,107,204,561, and the estimate for 1800 is §1,576,302,978; the value of the product in 1880, $1,774,127,423, and the estimate for 1890 is §2,293,779,228. "In the last eight years the metallic products of the United States have increased $50,000,000 worth, and in what are known as non-metallic products the increase has been nearly §100,000,000. "So far as one ia able to estimate from the statistics that have been furnished by the leading industries, the reports of the agricultural department and those of the geological {survey, the wealth per capita iu this country has increased in tholastdecada to $1,000. From 1870 to 1S8J) tlvj increase was from $780 to $870. "In the sis cereal products (wheat, corn, ry«, oats, burlej', buckwheat), as reported by the statistician of the department of :\™ricnlture, there was an incivaKi; of 44. IS per cent, in the average uniiv.:!! production and of 30 per cent, in tla< average farm value of crops for the i:j.;t nino years over that for thepre- ccu.::;< ton years. "Tliotwo decades preceding 1830, in respect to material prosperity of our •country, are without parallel in the history of the nations of the world. The expenditures by the general government and by the states amounted to at least $9,000,000,000, not paid in exchange for property for the people or the development of the country, bnt to support •armies in the field and prosecute a great civil war. Property of the value of $1,200,000,000 was destroyed in the seceding states, and for fonr years their production, in those pursuits which create national and individual wealth, was suspended. Nearly three millions of work T <ers and producers were for three years called from our industries; nearly half a onillion of men were Mlled in the con- iflict, and a million more were disabled in various degrees. The funded national debt reached nearly $3,000,000,000. It has been reduced to less than $800,000,000. "The valuation of the property of the people in 1860 amounted to about §10,- vQ.00,000,000, including the value of the .slaves; in 1870 to $30,000,000,000, and the slaves had been enfranchised; in 1880 to over $43,000,000,000, and as indicated .from the returns from the largest industries of the country and the reports I have referred to, the last decade will snow an increase in property and prosperity largely in excess of either of the two preceding it. • * • . "It was asserted here the other day that our country was filled with idle men and unemployed labor. I deny it. Idleness is not enforced, and there is labor for all at remunerative rates. Annually for ten years over 500,000 immigrants have sought our country for employment, and with these yearly additions from abroad to our labor force there has not been any decrease in the rate of wages during that period. The immigrants find employment and continue to come. "I have already given the increase in the number of those employed in our mechanical industries. The number engaged in agriculture is not so available. Their wages, however, are not fixed by organizations in that industry formed to regulate prices, but depend upon the law of supply and demand. The subject has been investigated by the agricultural department, through its regular correspondents and agents, and from which report I quote the following results: if "The average daily wages of the ordinary farm laborer in the state of New York in 1879 was 93 cents without board and 68 cents witfc bawd; in 1880, $1.21 without board and 80 cents with board, and for 1890 $1.38 without board and 90 cents with board. "In the state of Illinois in 1879 the saws laborers received $1.01 without board and 78 cents with board, «n£ in 188Q |i.l8 without board and 86 oenta with board. «*> HATS, CAPS, AND FURNISHING GOODS Plnsh Caps FOR Y O R S SUSPENDERS.

There has been no material change during the past ten years in the daily wages paid in that thevgreatest and the most important of all our industries, where, as I have •stated-;:the demand absolutely fixe* thfo/ price without the intervention of organizations. In this connection permit me to add that the labor supply in the mechanical industries is recruited from immigration and farin laborers, with the resiilt that relative wages for years have been established batween the two, and there has been no decline in value a£ farm labor notwithstanding the price of the products of agriculture—or their farm value—is somewhat lower at the present time tianin the preceding years. "Special mention, however, should be made of agriculture; and it must be borne in mind that the severity of competition, from the increase in the quantity produced, by the increased facilities for and the reduction in charges for transportation extending the area of supply and productive power of the world, now, as they always have, will affect prices. Within ten years the agricultural acreage of this country has been extended 1,500,000 acres at least. Our various agricultural products, including meat, for the past year were largely in excess of those of ten years ago, and above the relative increasa in population. What I mean ia that the production has advanced faster than the population has increased." _.„» ago whiloscouting/ 7ood he had noticed f "' about sunrise Activity in London Streets. The thing that most astonished me about London, and that I had been least prepared to see there, was the amazing activity in the streets. A New Yorker born and bred, who has seon the principal American cities, fancies that there can be nothing in the world like Fulton street and Broadway. But after one hour on foot in London he will regard that heart of New York's traffic much as a turbulent old sailor I heard of regarded a 22-cftliber revolver. "What are you going to do with that pea shooter?" he asked. "Nobody would be afraid of that. Stand off a bit and fire at me a few timas^ill I see what it will do. Now, if you happened to have a knife about you and felt sassy I'd feel afraid of you."—Julian. Ralph in Harper's Weekly. Settling a Dispute.
