This paperts PRTNTED BY STEAM POWER. The "hatchet has been buried in a -snow bank. Siwne of the eastern papers are trilking of John Sherman for governor '<yf*0hio. John Sherman is too valuable 'a'nwm to be spared from the United States Senate. What is the matter with McKJritey for the next governor of Ohio? TThe Few York Press calls the'*M>tention «K free traders to the fact thatin 1852, tinder a revenue tariff duty of ^'.percent, an assorted crate of white "China ware •cost lOS/SO. In 1890, raticleraj protective •Suty of <55 per cent, it <costs $48.30. The "wisdoraof the'origin&l'.iraniers of *the constitution in •dividing Geagress into ' two houses is now apparent. tSut for the ";Senate aud President 'Harrison nothing would stand between -Una -country and free trade, or the Democratic ideal of a tariff—a tariff for revenue only. A little item showing *he expenditures of Hhis government for ^pensions is now going the rounds of the Democratic press. It started, of course, with' the New York J Herald and has got as far-already as the Algona Courier. Iveep ; Jt in circulation; 1 it is a favorable eonrmenfc upon the pat* riotism of the Republican 1 party. Statistics show -a remarkable increase in the consumption -of intoxicating liquors during the past. year. The reason for this may possibly toe traced to the original package decisions. There were a great many thirsty people in ilowa and Kansas, and they improved the "opportunity .offered by the O. P. houses. We are inclined to think that after all, prohibition has prohibited. Trusts are an outgrowth of the system of protection, according to the talk of the | free trader. Free trade England is trust- ridden. The latest trust in England is the chemical trust. A. ""Chemical Union" has been lately organized with a capital of eight and one-liaflf million pounds sterling. Over 90 .per cent, of all the firms engaged in the diiemical trade have joined the union. This 1 trust has already greatly enhanced the'price of chemicals. Bulletin No. 11 of "the Iowa Agricul tural Experiment station at Ames, contains a groat deal of information both interesting and valuable itc the farmer. An article by R. ,P. &peer «on "Experiments iu making and storing hty" is especially so. In 1888, 3,60fl,.000 aores of grass were cut and cured far hay;. 4,500,000 tons of hay valued at $4fi,OOQ,000 were made that year. It is estimated -that nearly one- half of tho value <of<eacbHaay crop is lost on account of Me -cuttings, exposure to rains, etc.,, and avoidable injuries after being stacked or .placed an barns. Mr. Speer estimitea the annual loss to the farmers of Hawa from these sources to be not less than $9,000,000. iit hardly seems possible that kali of our hay crop is wasted, but it eaniiot bedoabttid that farmers sustain heavy losses each year on their circulating medium of tho country. The St. Paul Press of Nov. 20th says of this scheme: "The free and unlimited coinage of sil vcr and tho increase of $400,000,000 of legit tender paper currency in addition to Wiat now in circulation would certainly give us plenty of money such as it would foe. It would certainly enable the farmer who is in debt for his improvements or machinery to pny his 'debts at probably from 25 to 30 per cent, less than the face of his obligations at the present value -of money. It would also have the effect 'of increasing the nominal prices paid for'his products. But when he came to make new improvements or buy more machinery or supplies of any kind for his family or to pay for help on his farm he would find that everything he purchased would cost from 40 to^M per cent, more, and as his cheap currency would, as the history of all such experiments shows, go on cheapening,, til? a basketful of St would not buy an egg, he would come Wit at the end of his fooling with the money question ten times worse off than he ^was be fore. The 'experiment has been tried a great many times with just this result; but if one experiment more is 'necessary to teach 'the Farmers' Alliance the fun dameatal'train that it is impossible to create values out of nothing., it would be a good thing for the fools who wish to rush-again into the fire tfeat has con- sumed'every people that has entered it, if they'were alone concerned, to let them try their hand at overturning the laws that rule the world. The -success attending the Alliance movement has operated to excite the leaders and paint in their imagination glowing pictures of political power. The convention now in sessiommay put forth a platform and decide mpon a national ticket for 1892. At all events the work of organizing the Alliance will be continued and it bids fair ts'foe a formidable political power in 1892. 'The Democrats will-continue their overtures to the farmers. The Alliance will 'be a good stepping stone to help the 'Democrats into power in 1892 It would'be a mistake to turn the Alliance into -a political party, and would result finally 'in defeating its real purposes. The Alliance movement is-a class movement and is not broad enough to insure permanent success the political field. Prance on her military establishment. The French people are very patient, and, as our correspondent shrewdly observes, they have, never yet risen in revolution to protect their pockets. If they have the shadow and semblance of liberty, they seem to be content without its substance —if, indeed, they know what real liberty is. The finances of the republic are apparently in such bad condition that we should not be surprised to hear before long of propositions looking to a large issue of paper money. ' To be sure, Frence has had a sorry experience with assignants and such expedients, and her public men are mostly sound on the question of money; but expenses must be paid; and ap-. parently the last thing anybody thinks of is the possibility of reducing the enormous army that is depopulating and pan- perizing the country. It is a strange spectacle that is thus presented to our view, and oae full of in bay crop which raugirt be avoided to some extent if the proper precautions were taken. This is a great agricultural coun ttry and the 'matter of getfiog the best (possible returns for it is labor ought to -engage the attention of every practical ffjirmer. Money is lost an a hwtdred ways ^about the farm where money might be •made. The REi'iruMetH commends its STarra Department to all interested ia eg (tlcuHure. Mr. Wilson kw made farming «AY, ao4 hid advice will be found invaluable oa a great many questions connected with the farm. Farmers -are leading and thinking more than they used to and tbe result is better homes aufi better people. ;J Tlie National CoaveBtiou of the Warmer's Alliance is in session at Ocailft, Florida. The action of tlie convention will be w*tched with no IJttle interest by the entire country. The farmer has «o«e (o be « factor in the politics of this country and. there is no. doubt toat the Alliance movement will result to his advantage, if it is not carried too. far. The tendency of the Alliance is to $sk too muehj and to ask so called reforms wbicb the best Statesmen of the country Wft»14 call a menace to the interests of <$ slaves, including the farmer. Toe pm «jy of fee Alliance is f oi money, ' by Mr, THE MESSAGE TO CONGEESS. President Harrison's -annual message to Congress is a manly document, full of stalwart Republican .doctrine. Whatever the disposition of tlie Republican party at large, President Harrison is firm in the support of the principles with which the party came before the people in the last campaign. The poHcy for the party to ipursue, as outlined by President Harri •<«on's message, will fee endorsed by every •loyal Republican throughout the country. The people have feeen anxiously await ing this message. The mugwump papers 1 have been a unit >ln advising a back down on the McKinley bill and the fed-j i-eral election law, a«d not a few staunch' ^Republican papers /have been rendered! weak-kneed by the .'Shock of the great) Republican defeat. 'We are gratified to; mote that the heart of the grand olC party has experienced no change. Nothing will now do so much for Republican- asm as a firm and decided stand down •at Washington, President Harrison has 'taken such a stand end a Republican •Congress will stand with him. The mes «sage is an instructive and encouraging /document, touching upon almost every Sine of the nation's interests and discovering many reasons for our congratulation as a people, in the increased prosperity of the nation at large, and the wise legislation of th« present Congress look-rag toward an era of even greater pros ,perity. The message is not ambiguous in «ny part, or in aay particular. It is a straightforward business like document, •characteristic of President Harrison and! e administration.

A Practical Texas 'Sif tings: It is almost a self- evidentiproposilion that, if not checked in his wracious career, Jay 'Gould will gobble all of the leading industries of the country. . His course reminds us of a landlady who said to one of 'her boarders: "Please, sir, there is nothing in the house 'to cat!" "How about the fish ?"saW the boarder, "Please, air. the cat'ave eat them." "Then there's some cold -cliicken -- " "Please, sir, the cat -- " •""Wasn't there a tart of some sort?" *Tlease,sir, the cat -- '" •''Then, darn it, cook the cat, and le#e have it all at once!" If the goverment intends to do anything in regard to railroad or telegraph Mnes it had better catch Jay Gould, cook him, and have it all at once. English Comment.

' Some Xotcd Jews. "There is a Jew!" said the Rev. Dr. Blank, as he sat in his study with a Jew hater, nnd pointed to a plaster cast of Michael Angelo's magnificent head of Moses. "And there is another Jew!" he added, as he pointed to a painting of the Veronica Christ. "And there are yet other Jews!" ho continued, as lie glanced around his walls at the pictures! of the prophets, apostles and sages, from David and Jeremiah to Paul and Peter. "Yes my Christian brother, these are Jews! and are they not men who have voiced the highest thought of the world for ages, whose teaching is the guide of our life today and who will lead mankind to the end of time?" The Jew hater had not taken full account of these things before hearing his pastor's impassioned words, which, however, set him a-thinking.—New York Sun. The Memory of a Chinese. "Talk about the power of a Chinaman to imitate," said an East Side grocery- man-, "I was in a Fifteenth street laundry tho other day and the almond eyed celestial, whose quick motions somehow, made you think of a knife, was busy with a paint brush. He was painting a sign reading 'Chinese Laundry,' and painting it as neatly as a professional sign painter. He could not read a wonl •of English and had no copy before him, and when I asked -him how lie did it flimply said, 'See him lots.'"—Kansua City Star. _ A recent contract provides for street lighting in Paris on a novel plan.

The fact that France's commercial treaties wdltexpire in 1893 is enough of itself to set speculation at work; and the further fact 'that there is a deficit in tfae budget, and tint notwithstanding the already enormous taxation there is to he a still further increase in the burdens of ratepayers—this makes the situation serious. Further, the French tariff is t<* b$ revised, aad highly protective duties, almost profcibitoiy, in fact, are to he placed upon tbe imports from countries that place a hjgb tariff upon French goods. What (bis may mean to America is worthy of the serious study of our public men. As our reeeot letters from the land of the Czar have shown, Russia, too, exhibits a disposition to enact more protective duties upon imports. In fact, the present is a period of change in the world of exchange and, of commerce, and he would be a far sighted prophjet indeed who We Can Raise Wool In This Country.
