On the question of a constitutional convention "No" was elected by an overwhelming majority. Sioux City Journal: Wanton inconsistency is not the more admirable because there are some newspapers that call it "independence." « The Iowa State Register is entering upon its 21st year of usefulness to the Republican party. It has the largest cir culation of any Iowa paper and is doing a correspondingly large work. The Democratic members of Congress are carrying out their obstruction plans according to program,— so far as a desperate endeavor to bulldoze the adminis tration is concerned, but Reed still reigns and the ^Republican majority at Washington still lives. was a "statesman." Now when everyone is satisfied that Reciprocity means any thing else but free trade,— that it is only protection in a new form, and now that it is endorsed by Republicans every where, the Chicago Herald declares that it is a "moonshine scheme" and that Blaine is the "father of McKinleyism." The Courier follows suit. The Herald declares with the usual assurance which characterizes its editorial pages that "McKinleyandMcKinleyism and Harrison and Harrison ism are the children of James G. Blaine." This latest theory in regard to Mr. Blaine and the McKinley bill is slrangely in contrast with the plug hat story published by the Herald a few weeks ago. In that story which went the entire rounds of the Democratic press Blaine was represented as declaring at a meeting of Republican Senators his absolute unfriendliness toward the McKinley Bill. The story further related that Mr. Blaine emphasized his remarks by banging his silk hat up against the wall. Now the Herald and Courier tell us that he is the "father of McKinley ism." It is enough to make a sober man's head swim to follow the great leaders of the Democracy as they flounder around, from one position to another. The Courier and all the other patent inside democratic organs have to jump whenever the Chicago Herald pulls the string. Verily Democrtic journalism is a mystery to the uninitiated. If it comes to a question of electing the next legislature in this state on the prohibition issue—with the Republicans for, and the Democrats against—the so-called prohibition party will probably insist upon putting a ticket in the field, and helping to elect a Democratic legislature. That is the kind of consistency which has marked the course of the prohibition party in Iowa. The Upper Des Moines succeeded last week in giving its readers, who are not acquainted with the Sioux City Journal, a wrong impression as to the Journal's position upon the election bill. The Journal was represented as being "opposed to the proposed election law,"which is anything else but true—'So far as the principles of the bill are concerned. The Journal appeared in an editorial questioning the wisdom of forcing the bill through at this session of Congress. All of its opposition to the Lodge bill was summed up in the expression of a doubt. The Sioux City Journal is one of the strongest Republican papers in Iowa and did gallant service for the party during the campaign. WHAT AN ALLIANCE MAN SAYS OF THE ALLIANCE. J. C. Baker, of Palo Alto county, was in town a few hours yesterday while en route to Des Moines, where he was going to attend an important meeting of the executive committee of the State Farmers Alliance, of which he is a member. Mr. Baker says there is a lack of information regarding Alliance matters, and so far from its being.generally understood that the National Alliance Convention in session at Ocalla, Florida, has no connection with the Iowa State Alliance, there is hardly anybody who does not suppose that it was the head of the Iowa body. In fact there are two National Alliance organizations, a northern and a southern, and Iowa, of course, is auxiliary to the Northern Alliance. ; The Southern Alliance, Mr. Baker explains 1 ,'is a secret organization, while the Northern is an open one. The Iowa Alliance, however, at its last annual meeting, decided to adopt a secret work and imposed upon the exec utive committee the duty of formulating that work, but the adoption of the feature of secrecy was made optional with the local Alliances. Mr, Baker says there are secret alliances ia Iowa,the existence and membership of which are unknown in their communities, and he says further that a great deal is going on that well informed people as to other matters know nothing about. the great event of the campaign. We had overlooked its importance. We had in fact been inclined to class it as a minor incident, but in that we are apprised that we made a serious mistake. But we now see our mistake. Ordinarily an intense public interest cannot be worked up by receipts passed between a newspaper and its customers. Of course when it leaked out that the U. D. M. had received a lot of supplements containing a complete and instructive analysis of the Republican tariff bill, concerning which it had circulated numerous untrue and unfair statements which though asked to correct it never corrected, and containing a fair and lucid statement of the Republican position on the tariff question, which had never found place in its columns, and when it was seen that these supplements, intended to correct the false statements of Democratic papers and speakers, had been suppressed, the natural inference of everybody was that the publishers had never ordered them, and if not had of course not paid for them. When it was stated by the U. D. M. .that they were paid for, by the publishers thereof, another explanation of the curi ous instance was at hand: The supplements were too complete and palpable a refutation of everything tliat paper had been saying about the Republican bill and the Republican theory of tariff 'legislation; or the U. D. M's. humiliation would have been too great, perhaps; or it would have been a help to the Republican party, or too much of a help, considering the blow at its vanity—but all explanations are aside of the point, it paid for the supplements which it did not give to its readers. It has the receipt. It has pub lished the receipt. We have read it. We think it entirely genuine. And if a word from us is needed to attest its authentic ity we accord the favor of that word in behalf of our esteemed contemporary, in the hope that the public mind will be quieted, all doubters reassured and conn dence restored. We do this cheerfully, and only wish the certificate was in at testation of some real service to the Republican party. The value of the service to Republicanism may be judged by supposing that each of the three hundred or more papers in the State which call themselves^Republican had done what the U. D. M. is anxious to have it known that it did—supposing that they had bought up the Register's entire edition and suppressed it. These papers could have had their vouchers to show, and they could post them in conspicuous places, but we would have fewer Republican candidates elected than the official count .shows.

Wo have no quarrel with any man for his convictions, political, religious or otherwise, but at the tame time we believe in the general principles of honesty. To profess one thing and act another, in matters of religion is hypocrisy, in politics and elsewhere it-is treachery. There is a certain class of 'newspapers, Republican by profession, (Democratic by nature and mugwump in reality, that are doing Republicanism ia world of harm by giving aid and comfort to the Democratic party, while wearing the uniform of the G.O.P. They are a cl&ss of passengers that insist upon riding ia the Republican coach, but who when it is liable to come to a standstill on the up grade.refuse to get out and put their shoulders to the wheel. That they should be compelled to get out and push, or go it alo»e, or get oft the log is our theory. Last week's Comier contained sundry references to Elaine's "moonshine reciprocity scheme," copied of course, from the Chicago Herald. It is to the Chicago Herald aiid, JTew York Herald that our contemporary looks for his cue as to what course to talie in dealing with the great issues before tfcs country. This disposition upon thjB part pf the Courier to follow in the footsteps of the great Democratic lights and. to look toward Chicago and New York for Us inspiration may account for some of its seeming strange inconsistencies. We would like to ask Bro. Hinchon if he remembers the cordial endorsement of BlftiBP's "moonshine re> ciprocity scheme" in the Cedaj: Rapids platform this year, an4 if he remembers how the Algona Courier cordially endorsed every plank to that platform? The Courier ia only tagging along j a the footsteps of its leaders.

It is gratifying to know that the better class of our farmers do not sympathize with the ultra-reform projects of the Farmer's AlJdance. The editor of the Iowa Homestead, one of the ablest agricultural writers in Iowa, and a man whose heart is with the farm and the interests of tlie farmer, does not endorse the extreme views of the leaders of the Alliance. "Tama Jim" Wilson does not endorse them and Mr. Wilson, ia our estimation, is about as near the realization of a farmer statesman as the country can produce. 'The leaders of the Alliance in the late convention at Ocalla,. Florida, have given evidence that they are not broad men. They are men with a single eye and that solitary eye is foeussed on the barn yard. The interests of the farmer and manufacturer, of labor and capital, are mutual and interdependent the one upon the other. That the farmer has not always had his rights and that capital has tyrannized over labor none can deny. So far as. the movement of the Alliance and labor organizations tends to correct these errors it is a commoqdable and righteous movement- When it is carried so far as to mean a continuation of class tyranny, but a change in the is to be branded as inimical to the general welfare. The Alliance should stay out of politics. Organized labor has no more right to rule than organized capital. True democracy means equal rights to all. As a club to he held over the head§ of tho political parties the Alliance can accomplish much, but as a political organization within itself, with a constitution to which all must submit or suffer expulsion from the order, it is liable to run upon the rocks with disastrous result! to the entire country. We regret to cote the spirit of the Ocalla convention. The scheme to make the Alliance a political institution we belleve to be unfriendly to the interests of the farmer. It will not be endorsed by the better an4 more conservative class of our f arwejt* in the north. SIFTINGS. Quoting Scripture. Brooklyn Chrenicle: "In the defeat of Peter A. Dey for railroad commissioner, the faith of the Democratic party is pretty well shaken. On this rock. Peter, had they founded their faith, bnt the multitude chose Luke that better disciple." A Habit Of The Democratic Press. Exchange: The habit of insincerity and ill-timed trifling with important subjects is one so firmly fixed with the democratic press that it does not stop with criticism of candidates in the heat of a campaign, but carries its spleen to the most extreme ends. The ill natured and silly comment of a majority of democratic news-papers upon Postmaster General Wauamaker's report is a current illustration of this fact. • THE CHICAGO AND HQRTH-WEBTERN RAILWAY. affords unrivaled facilities for transit between the most important cities and towns in Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Northern Michigan, Minnesota, North and Souili Dakota, Nebraska and Wyoming.

This is a question everyone is interested in at this season of the year, and everyone wants to buy the -stove that will heat the most surface with the least amount of fuel. In making my selections of stoves this fall I carefully looked into this matter and I am sure I have selected as good in every respect as there is in the market. Please call and see the new styles and.get prices. I also have a large number of second hand stoves which will be sold VERY CHEAP—from $3 up. Some of these stoves are nearly as good as new.

Another grievous disappointment to ,tlie British tin plate trust, the New York importers and the American free trade editors and politicians, is the discovery of tin ore in te*as. HOW it must gall the soul of Roger Q. Mills to learn that his own state possesses resources for the production of tin. Of course this will make no difference with him, for he holds to the divine right of the British manufacturing monopolies to possession of the market of the United States, no matter what their resources may be. "Our C«uuU-y." St. Louis Globe-Deraoqrat: "This is our country," Mr. Cleveland says—"not ours to destroy, but ours to protect andde fend, to foster and improve." If he bad talked that way while the rebellion was in progress he would have been read out of the democratic party. : l j erlitti>« It W«MI, St. Joseph Herald: The Democrats of Iowa resolved in favor of reciprocity. Will their congressmen cwry out that policy? Perhaps the Iowa State Democratic Convention was held at 6 time when it was thought that reciprocity split the Republican party. Atenii Wanted.
