The country will eventually recover from the semi-panic which it has just passed through, but the western banker can hasten tho recovery. There, is plenty of money in the country but not enough in circulation. No. 12. THE We'insist that the Chicago Tribune and other journals of its stripe should not be allowed to pose before the people any longer as "leading Republican papers." The McKinley Bill protects the American hen. From the first of October to the 6th we imported 1,139,303 dozen eggs, but from the 6th to the 31st of October we imported but 128,589 dozen. The new duty on eggs went into effect Oct 6th. Major McKinley received last Monday a box containing samples of the first experimental tin made in Chicago. The ore fov this tin came from the Black Hills. It is an American article all the way from the crude tin to the finished product. In the opinion of the Sioux City Journal and Des Moines Capital "the determination of the saloon question in Iowa will rest with the farmers." There is truth in the assertion. We would like to hear an expression from the Alliance upon the prohibition question. Some of the exchanges are wasting sen- ) timenton old Sitting Bull. It is said < that he was deliberately shot down. We regret that the man with sufficient deliberation to do the deed was so long in putting in an appearance. He might have saved many a white man's scalp. The Senate needs a Speaker Reed. The purpose of all pai-lirnentary law is to enable a deliberative body to expedite its business, not to furnish an instrument for delay and obstruction. Congress is elected to transact, not to delay the business of the government. Speaker Reed had sense enough to propound this doctrine and sand enough to enforce it. The Senate is following the lead of the House in preparing to pass a cloture rule to shut off prolonged debute. The elections bill will be laid aside until the question of a change in the rules is disposed of. This is a business like administration. The Senate is waking np, and with this change in the rules will be able to go on record for doing something, The circulation of the Chicago Tribune is said to have fallen off very much in this State during the last six months. It now has the smallest circulation in Iowa of any of the weekly editions of the Chi cago papers, The Inter Ocean probably GREAT FORTUNES AND TARIFF. A recent issue of the New York World contained a list of 122 persons living in the United States whose aggregate fortunes amount to $1,552,000,000. Of these 122 persons, two are rated at $125,000,000 each, one at $100,000,000, one at $75,000 000, one at $40,000.000, one at $35,000,000, five at $30,000,000 each, four at $25,000,000 each, two at $20,000,000 each, seven at $15,000,000 each, five at $12 000,000 each, two at $0,000,000 each, and seventy-five at $5,000,000 each. The New York Tribune examining the list of names calls attention to the fact that the wealth of the thirty-five persons first named aggregates one thousand and eighty-five millions of dollars, but that of the entire thirty-five, only two have made their fortunes by manufacturing articles protected by our tariff laws One is rated at $20,000,000 and the other at $15,000,000. The Tribune asks to have these facts reconciled with the doctrine taught by tho enemies of protection that most of the great fortunes in this country were made by men who took advantage of our tariff laws to rob the people, and remarks the "fact is that the benefits of a protective tariff go largely to the men who do Hie work, and who receive these benefits in better wages. This list shows most clearly that the great bulk of men who have amassed such enormous fortunes in the past have not made their money by the aid of the tariff laws." spirited debate in which some strong speeches were made against the ruinous National loan agency plank. It was the deliberate espousal of a bedlamite proposition for making farmers more prosperous and the country more flourishing. Since this sub-treasury scheme now has the backing of a powerful organization which is taking an active part in politics it becomes well worth while to consider just what it means. The demand of the Farmers' Alliance is that tho Government "shall establish sub-treasuries or depositories in the several States which shall loan money direct to the people at a low rate of interest, not to exceed 2 per cent, per annum, on non perishable farm products, and also upon real estate, with proper limitations upon the quantity of the land and amount of money." In other words, any farmer is to have the privilege of taking his grain, dairy products, etc., to a Government warehouse and borrowing upon it, say 75 per cent, of its market value, at a nominal interest for an indefinite time. He is also to have the privilege to borrow money in the same way, at the same rate, upon 'and. The enormous amount of money sure to be called for under such a plan is to be provided by the Government by printing paper currency until the stock in the country shall have been increased by at least $1,800,000,000 of fiat money The wildest schemes of the Greenbackers never proposed anything so hair-brained or so dangerous, and the present distress ness—an opinion fully shared by the rest of the world, and rapidly gaining ground among themselves. Tho i\r«!s8!i£o mid Register: President Harrison's message given to Congress last Monday is one of especial interest to the farmers. It shows an advancement of the agricultural interests almost unequalled. With a capable secretary of the department of agriculture, these large and important interests are for the first time in the history of the country receiving adequate attention at the hands of the ad tion to the full extent of the law.

"THE POOR FARMER": The "poor farmer" has been the sub- has the largest, The Republicans of Iowa jeot of many tears and sighs from the sympathetic democracy. Of all classes the farmer has the least need for com passion, for everything considered he represents the most prosperous class of people in all the country,- D0 t perhaps the richest class but the most uniformly prosperous and happy. There are poor farmers, and farmers who will always remain poor, just as there are certain classes in every business, trdde or profession who will nover attain a corape- tence; but the trouble in most cases is to be charged up to the man,, and not to some supposed wrong which h e is suffering at the hands of monopoly or some political party. That unfair discriminations have been 'made in times past, it cannot be denied, but the farmers have suffered as little at the hands of organized capital and unfair legislation as any other class of people. In spite ef all the imaginary wrongs which he has suf fered the prosperous farmer has grown rich in the last few years. Dozens of men have come to Kossuth county during the past ten years without a cent, who are now the absolute owners of well improved and well stocked farms. When the right man takes hold of the farm, farming always pays. To make a successful farmer requires a fund of exn«vi«» w lpt , Trft!U "trade," that is never completely icWtfcu, and the man who expects to succeed by simply putting bis corn in the ground and aving it to the kindly action of the sun nnd rain will probably be disappointed, of the Argentine Republic, a country naturally very rich and growing fast in resources and population, can be traced directly to less grevious folly. The Wai-Is Over. The latest reports on the Indian question indicate that the trouble is probably at au end. The following special from Pierre, S. D., appeared in the Minneapolis Journal of yesterday evening: American I><icomoU vc. Inter Ocean: One of the largest foreign orders ever received by the Baldwin Locomotive Works is now being filled in the manufacture of twentyseven locomotives for government use in New South Wales. Heretofore English locomotives were mainly used on government roads. Queer how this protective tariff of ours has taken the ring out of England's free trade anvils. Ten of these locomotives are on the plan of our ordinary passenger ones, while those of the freight model will be our heaviest and strongest build. These locomotives will cost about §10,000 apiece. There was lively competition among English shipowners for ttie contract to carry this load to Australia. A Xmas You will want to buy for some friend or relative.
