The Democratic papers are calling reciprocity a "moonshine scheme" and "free trade"fin the same breath. There is some talk of "Tama Jim" Wikon for tliemext governor of Iowa 'to succeed farmer Boies. Mr. Wilson w#nld mate a strong candidate. The Elections Bill is slowly working its way'througiivtheSenate. Why do th«3!)em •ocrata object to honest elections? Clou- igress ought to be unanimous in. the (passage of such a law. "Tama-Jiin" Wilson's farm department 'is especially bright acd full of good ad •vice for the farmer this week. Mr. Wil-son is in' favor of the "mutton sheep" and is v very persistent in urging his views upon the farmer. It is a subject to which the farmer of Kossuth county -may very sprofltably turn his attention. We used to pay $150 in havd^61d for a 'ton of English made steel rails. That was -away back in the sixties. After twenty five years of Republican tinkering with the tariff, a ton of the very best Bessemer steel rails— American manufacture —can now be bought for $23. ^Steel rails are not the exception to the general rule •ofiprotectsd articles. It is now conceded by all parties that Grover Cleveland was illegally elected president of the United States.- 5000 men, inmates of public institutions on Long Island, were marched to the polls, and 5000'-vQtes were cast solid >for Grover. This method of carrying tbe State of New York has been decided illegal and fraudulent by the supreme court. • Ireland has never learned the lesson i that "in union there is strength." The •element in the Anglo Saxon character that has made Etigland great, is entirely lacking in the character of the Celt. The history,of Ireland,tells of an inability to •organize. Ireland has produced her orators, scholars and statesmen, but has never yet produced a leader. While waiting for a leader she has helplessly suffered ecclesiastical and political tyrranny for centuries. /The Ottumwa Courier says confidently: ''The fight in Iowa next year will be on prohibition, straight, fair and unequivocal, and as to the result we have not-a particle of doubt." We ho.pe that the Courier's confidence in a <Republican victory next fall is well founded. We are confident ourselves of a;Republican victory next fall, but we will -feel better whoa the election is over and-it is all settled. 'The situation next fail will admit of no'crawfishing upon the part of the Republican pmy. If jt stands where it alwayahas stood, firm in the'defence of prohibition, it will^have little to fear. EXPERIENCE TALKS, The American policy of protection asks no better endorsement than what history offers. A half century of experience ought to be a better and safer guide than the theories advanced by the Democratic party—the party of free trade. The annual report of Secretary Wiudom shows an overflowing treasury, a djminishiflg national debt and unlimit «d public credit. Immediately previous tp our present system of protection,6 condition of affairs the exact opposite «Scist- •«d. Instead of diminishing in annual in- <fital]lm.entB.qf a hundred million •dollars, jtl\e national debt increased 337 iper •cent. t&mwaa to 1860. Instead of a «ur- l>lt$ reaching fe^.OOO.OOO, the report of Secretary of the Treasury, Dix, February 1,1861, exbibUeifft deficit of $21,677,524. lestead of redeewing bonds, the government waskept'hjwdat WQr k negotiating loaas to keep i»p <fe e running expenses. Following dose «j>o» this deplerable condition of affair* came the civil war with its wreck and j. u i n , pjjj 0 g the already burdensome debt away up into the billions. Following cjose upon the civil war came the RepubJican party with its protection doctrine*. The enormous war debt has melted away ty»4er twenty-five years of protection, like snow beneath the summer's sun. The industries of the - T ., which were paralysed &« «•shock of war, have fully recov^d. 7«t all this is due—the Democratic ~ • te ji jke THE OCALA "DEMANDS." The declarations of the Alliance people., at Ocala, Florida, on the subject of needed legislation, are, as we expected, very radical. It seems strange that a body representing some millions of American voters, brought up in an intelligent atmosphere, should demand legislation embodying financial and economic vagaries which have never been surpassed by the Socialists of Europe in their formulas for tbe readjustment of society. ^ The antagonism to t.ho national banking systems rcops out in a very Decided way. It is aa unreasonable and unreasoning hostility. That system, during the past 28 years has been very largely contributory to the progress of this country, and lias botin helpful beyond 'expression to the farmers themselves. It is an elastic system and can be expanded or contracted in accordance with .the demand for banking facilities and it as the safest banking system this couB'ttry has ever hnd. And at this time, wLton the system ' is passing away by reason of the retirement of circulation, there <are something like $2,000,000,000 of tlws >mouey of tbe people deposited with 4/hese banks aafl not a small proportion al it belongs .to farmers. Why demand the abolition of the system? Instead of a safe and trustworthy banking system the Allianoe calls for cheap money and government pawn shops. Free coinage, "unlimited" coinage, 'they call for, and they are,'doubtless, eocour- aged in this by the doubtful attitude of President Harrison on this subject. The President's son Rueseil, in his Helena paper plainly says that-his father will "not stand in the way," ii'.congress chooses to enact free coinage. .Russell probably diagnoses his fatherWonvictions 011 this subject. The noncommittal character of tbe President's message on free coinage is certainly encouraging to the unlimited silver coinage man. « The Alliance people attribute the strin gency in money toui deficiency in circulation. There newer was a more egregious error The circulation has been increased nearly$8Q,000,000 during the past year, There never'was a time, perhaps, except in 1860, when the currency out standing was greater than iVis today! It is well known thatsOO per cent, at least, of the business of this country is transacted by the use of 'Credits and not by cash, and the stringency might be avoid ed by a reform in'tbe system of credits and diffusion of the existing circulating medium more «aua'lly ^geographically. This can be done with tuo natural bank ing system by modifying it so as to admit of larger expansion in the times of great stringency -While -maintaining the absolute security of the system. The Alliance people ought to study the financial history of this country between 1880 and 1840, and they will be apt to discover some very strong reasons why they should hesitate to<demand such reckless inflations as they -have just indorsed in the report "adopted at Ocala.—Minneapolis Journal.. SITTING BULL KILLED. A Fort Tales special to yesterday evening's Minneapolis .Journal contained the particulars of the death or Sitting Bull, as follows: FT. YATKS, N D., Dec. 16.- Sitting tiull is dead. He was shot down in a melee with Indian pdlice yesterduy, 40 miles northwest of here.

The presence of this dirt cannot be ascertained till the seed ia broken up by crushing, and it discolors the oil so much that the latter is worthless for culinary purposes, no way having yet been found for getting rid of the disagreeable feature. But the oil can be better spared this year than at any other time since its introduction as a component of lard compound. Stocks of lard arc said to be the largest everknown, a recent enumeration placing the world's total at about 400,000 tierces, and we are not yet half through the winter season of hog packing in the west, - • — _ „ __ „_ Just think of it! a watch for $3.50 at Bowyer's.

The Waterloo Courier of Saturday brings news of the death, on the day previous, of Squire G. W. Ilanna of that county, the father of the Ilanna boys of this county. The Courier gives a column sketch, which ia very interesting. The deceased was born in White county, Illinois, in 1817, and so Was 73 years old at the time of his death. lie was married to Mary Melrose, who survives him, when twenty years old. Eight children were born to him, of which seven are yet living. They are Judge John Q., living in Texas. Geo. W. and Robert W., who are bankers at LuVerne, Iowa; Rev. Phil C., pastor M. E. church at Eagle Grove; Emily, who resides in Texas; Edith M. in 'Dakota, and Mary who resides at the phi home. Squire Ilanna and wife and two children and bis brother-in- law settled in Blackhavvk county in 1845. They were the first actual settlers of Blackhavvk county, and he was one of the founders of Waterloo, and run the first store in that city. The funeral occurred on Sunday last. Ambrose A.

Four policemen were killed and three wounded. Eight Indians were killed, including Sitting Bull and his son. Bladk Bird, Crow Foot and several others were wounded, The police were surrounded for some time, but maintained their ground until relieved by United States troops who now have possession of Sitting Bull's camp, with all the women and children and property. Sitting Bull's followers, prob ably about 100 men, deserted their f4mi- lies and fled up the river. SIFTJNGS. Dear Men oiul Chvup Products. American Economist: Skillfal njen, intellectual men, creative men a»ay be dear, but it is their labor and theif* alone that can effect a true cheapening of procj ucts~a cheapening consistent with the welfare and progress of society. The policy of the Democratic party no outloofe to humanity. That of Republican party, by encouraging tbe development of skill, »ui make men dearer and products cheaper. Tbe aim of society should be to have dear men and cheap products—not to secure cheap products by cheapening and humanity.

A couple of individuals were in Algona last week selling "chances" on articles to be raffled off at a Fair in Livermoire during the'ltolidays. The agents visited the REPUBLICAN office and tried to make a sale. They were politely toklthat their scheme smacked too-mudiof a lottery and was against the state law. This they denied and said tJiat only the Louisiana State Lottery was against the law. The fact that the L. ,S. L. is condemned by the postal department -and denied access to the mails may cause many to think it to be the only kind of a lottery that is unlawful. In fact, the L. S. L. is no more unlawful than any other lottery or similar scheme. The law that denies this lottery the use of the mails applies with equal force to any other lottery. Let the law speak for itself. Sectio-r; 4043 of the Code of Iowa reads as follows: If any person make, or aid in making or establishing any lottery in this state; or advertise or make public any scheme for any such lottery; or advertise or offer for sale any ticket or part oi a ticket in any lottery, or sell, negotiate or dispose of, purchase or receive the same; or have in his possession any ticket or paper purporting to be the number of any ticket of any lottery, with intent to sell or dispose of the same on his own account or as the agent of another, he shall be punished by imprisonment in the county jail not more than thirty days, or by fine not exceeding $100, or by both fine and imprisonment at the discretion of the court. Section 11 of the anti-lottery law says: "The terms 'lottery' as used in this act embrace all kinds of schemes, general or local, for the distribution of pri/.es by lot or chance, such as gift exhibitions, enterprises, concerts, raffles, or the drawing of prizes in money and prizes at fairs." Not only were these agents violating the law but they were laying themselves liable to a fine of $100. There are too many lottery schemes afoot these days in the way of raffles, etc., and the principle is just as wrong in the little church fair lottery as it is in the Louisiana State Lottery, and the sooner an example is made the better.
