This paper is PRINTED BY STEAM POWER. Gov. Boies' New York speech will make a splendid Republican campaign document next fall. The State Central committee will do well to file it away. President Harrison has vetoed the bill appropriating $75,000 for a public build ing at Bar Harbor, Maine, upon the ground that the public needs did not justify such an expenditure at that place. Bar Harbor is Secretary Blaine's summer home. President Harrison issued a proclamation Dec. 24 announcing that an international exposition will be held at Chicago in 1898. Now that it has been officially announced that we are to have a worlds' fair it is to be hoped that the commissioners will get down to business. If one hired man can raise and pick C( acres of corn in one year, and if he work; for $18 50 per month how many lies wil Gov. Boies have to tell to convince th< farmer that the entire value of his corn crop is less by 67 cents per acre, than the actual cost of its production at marke rates of labor,and insure his reelection as governor of Iowa? The Senate lacks sand and is succeed ing very well in demonstrating the fact It needs the genius and courage of speaker Reed on the Republican side. I it is the purpose of the senate to tolerate obstruction and delay, the Lodge Bil •and Cloture Resolution had better both 'be laid upon the table for an indefinite period and the Senate adjourned. Aluminum is the coming metal. It is one third as heavy and twice as strong as steel, will not rust or tarniah and is as malleable and ductile as Gold. It is the most abundant of all metals for it exists by the ton in every clay bank. The great cost of reducing the metal has heretofore rendered its use in the mechanic arts impracticable. American ingenuity wil some day discover a cheaper method of producing it and it will entirely supersede Iron and Steel. The Memphis Appea' Avalanche favors aa^ppeal to arms upon the part of the South in response to the Cloture reso solution introduced in the Senate. Th< fCloture Resolution is simply a measure f0 prevent obstructive tactics upon the trt of the minority, whenever it is plain the majority that the question at issu ts been sufficiently debated and tha farther pretense «£ debate is for obstruct ioa only. It is *n accepted principl that the majority should rule. The Clo ture rule is not in violation of that idea bat the Avalanche considers it a sufflcien provocation for iva appeal to arms. A mob of Democrats at Carrolton,Miss issippi, last weefe, shot down the pos master, who was a Jtepiblican, in cold 'felood. The youttg man was going quiet ly home to bis dinner at the time, when bo was shot from behind and instantly killed. It kas been the tooast of the good .Democrats of Courolton for years that no Republican should ever be post master and serve out hie full term. The shot gun rules iu Mississippi, and yet it is the dear people of Mississippi and othci Southern Steles wdio are 'rising in right ous indignation against live election bi\ and talking of "an appeal to arms." WHAT THE PASTY NEEDS. •6ne thing is necessary lor the future success of the Republican p*rty, aad that one thing is a livelier kind of Republicanism throughout the party iu general, Republicanism with red corpuscles in its blood, "Republicanism from the shoulder. " The party should first be subjected to a ail ting process, the mugwumps located, and those occupying a high position in party influence, removed to a less conspicuous seat iu the Synagogue. The Chicago Tribune et al, should be checked in the business of sending out free trade anaesthetics bearing a Repub lican trade mark. The Republican platform should be used as a shibboleth, and all unable to pronounce it without stammering over theprotectioaplaokshould be made to serve a term of probation in the rear rank of the party. A reorganization of the party, and a determined stand by Republican principles will start a laud slide in the opposite direction, which is bound to come anyway as eooa as the new tariff law has a chance to vindicate itself and its framers. Tons of Cobden Club misrepresentations are going through tho mails every week. The Democratic party is making an organixed effort to retain tbc territory gained at the last election. Organized effort should be met by organized effort. Let the coming campaigns be campaigns of education. Every county should be orgonized and the people given straight Republican doctrine. The people should know what they are getting and the Republican leaders should see to it that every batch of mugwump doctrine sent out should be branded like bogus lard or imitation butter. The straight Republicans of Kossuth county cordially endorse the posi tion of the Iowa State Register, Inter Ocean and other leading Republican papers upon the question of dealing with the mugwump. Give us "Republicanism from the shoulder." THE STATE REGISTER AND CJJI'JAGO TRIBUNE. The Iowa State Register is at present engaged in showing up the Chicago Tribune in its true light as an enemy to the Republican party and the Register is doing its work well. The Chicago Tribune and other papers of its character, have long posed before the people, as "leading" Republican organs, to the manifest injury of the Republican party. That the Chicago Tribune after years of indecision has at last practically sold out body and soul to free trade and the Democracy Seems evident, Our contemporary the Upper Des Moines is a small sized edition of the Chicago Tribune, and its editor in a small way is serving the Democratic party after the manner of Joe Medill. We believe that the State Register is eminently right in its course toward the Tribune and that its course will be endorsed by every loyal Republican. Below is a clipping from Saturday's Register which is most respectfully commended to Harvey Ingham's careful consideration: "A paper that fights what remains the cardinal principle of the Republican party, namely, protection, can not claim to be a Republican paper. Of course the Post, which is working for the Democracy, is pleased with any paper that fights Republicanism. Papers like the Post may be depended upon to en courage disaffection in the Republican party press. Tho Register believes in Republicanism from the shoulder. The party has lost strength" by riot standing firm and fighting out'the battle upon the line commenced upon—even if it takes until 1892. The Register thinks as we do, and as a majority of the straight Republicans in Iowa are beginning to think. When the Mugwump Newspaper is compelled to throw^off its sheep's clothing it will be a good" day for the Republican party. Give us Republicanism from the shoulder. "FARMER" BOIES. Gov. Boies is selfishly and meanly partisan, so much so that he will lie about Iowa and the people who gave him the office of governor, for partisan ends. In his speech at the Reform Club dinner in New York City a week ago last night, the Governor told of the woes of the Iowa farmers iu woids that will have no influence in bringing people to Iowa. What the Governor had to say of the farming interests of Iowa was not only unpatriotic but grossly false and entirely uncalled for; He responded to the toast, "Our new Allies in the Northwest; what our farmers have a right to demand," Below is an extract from his speech: "It is estimated by those making these reports that the cost of producing an aote of corn ready for the market is $8; that the average crop for five years has been thirty three and one third bushels, and statistics show that the average price of this corn in our local markets, soon after harvest, during such period has been 32 cents per bushel, making the entire value ot the crop, when marketed, f 7.88, or 07 cents less than the actual cost of production at market rates of labor. •"What is true of the production of corn in Iowa is equally true of all the great staples raised on her farms. When we consider the immense capital invested in the farms of a single State and aro told that for five whole years it has not paid enough to compensate the labor era ployed, it is apparent that no other bus • ness in this country could have withslor ,Ji snch a condition of adversity during long a period; and it is equally cerf that had it been practicable for the f t ers of the country to withdraw their ital from this line of industry their bers would have been greatly red in the best of the agricultural^ "But this was impractical and fr< very necessity of their situatio liave continued a business burden loss instead of yielding a profit market value of their labor is co» out of which this nation has three-fourths of all its exports reason of which it has been ab serve a balance of trade in its has constantly added to the a our national wealth. That the above is a libel c and farmers of Iowa every Three Hundred Good Indians. The Minneapolis Journal of yesterday evening contained a full account of the fight between the 7th Cavalry and Big Foots' band of Indians which took place Monday on Wounded Knee creek near the Pine Ridge agency. Below is the Journal's account of the fight: "The story of the fight is one of Indian treachery. After Big Foot's band of 150 warriors and 250 women and children hud surrendered Sunday, they were marched over to Wounded Kneek creek. Here the Indians camped, surrounded by the sol diers, who kept vigilant guard all Sunday night. J "Yesterday morning at 8 o'clock the disarmament of the reds began. The 150 male Indians were called from the tepees They obeyed slowly and sullenly, and ranged in a semicircle in front of Big Foot's tent. "By twenties they were ordered to give up their arms. The first twenty went to tneir tents and came back with only two guns. This irritated Maj. Whiteside, who was superintending this part of the work. "After a hasty consultation with Gen. Forsythe he gave the orders for the cav alrymen, who were all dismounted and formed in almost a square, about 25 paces back, to close in. They did so and took a stand within 20 feet of the Indians, now in their center. When this was done, a detachment of cavalrymen afoot was sent to search the tepees. About 00 guns were found. The order was given to search tbe warriors. "All thought of trouble was evidently out of mind with the souldiers, about a dozen of the warriors had been searched, when, like a flash all of them jerked guns from under their blankets and began pouring shot into the ranks of the soldiers. Those Indians who had no guns rushed on the soldiers with tomahawk in one hand and scalping knife in the other. The troops were at a great disadvantage, fearing the shooting of their own com rades. The Indians probably fired 50 or 100 shots before the troops returned their fire. "But when the white men did get to work the slaughter was terrible. No mercy was shown. Over 50 of the red devils were killed outright and they were pursued and shot down whercever found. Probably 800 of them were killed during the day. The number of soldiers killed is about 50. Capt. Wallace was killed and Lieut. Cartington, of Arctic fame, was shot through the arm at the elbow. Capt- Wallace was tomahawked squarely in the forehead. Lieut Kinzie received but a slight wound in the cord of the ankle." 5,000 Sioux are encamped at the Pine Ridge agency and further serious trouble is expected. The force of troops at the agency is insufficient, and if all the Indians revolt a complete massacre will probably be the result. SITTINGS. King out the old ! Kins in the new !

Boies be that Iowa farms "Farmer 1 Dubuque Times: ' leived what he said were not productive, and Iowa farmers were not prosperous, why is it that he still holds his 3,000 acre farm at Grundy Center and his nearly 2,000 acres in northwest Iowa?" He can sell his Grundy Center farm for $40 per acre to-day and it cost him less than $10 per acre. "A few more such speeches as that made in New York will be enough to convince any fair minded man that Gov. Boies is unfit to be governor of this great state." THK BOIES 1JOOM.

The Man with a Eoucl Voice. As a safe rule the man who howls at his dog in the field may be put down as a poor sportsman, and the dc$ that is howled at as n, poor dog. " For the a&er Qf that, the dog which findsj?ame for a noisy master usually does alxmt what his dog sense tells him to. The very fact of the man's noisy demonstrations implies that he cannot make his' dog obey. With, dogs as with horses. the master who handles them best is not lie whose voice can be heard in the next county. The quiet control of horse or dog is the only true mastery. There is nothing to be said for noise in the field. Properly trained, a dog will obey as readily and as intelligently and as effectively a motion of hand, or gun, or liuad, as the bawling nad roaring of a Boanerges. It is true that the dog exhorter n»,y thereby secure a needed and beneficial degree of lung exercise; but he is not at all likely to secure so large a count of game. Of all sounds that startlo tho birds that of the human voice is most certain to alarm them. Every expert gunner knows this and keeps still. The shouter is a tyro; or if he shouts year after year he is certainly a poor sportsman, and when in company with others who do not share his noisy proclivities, he is voted a general nuisance. M*.ny a grouse has been lost for no other reason than because it was startled and flushed by ill timed speech.— -Forest and Stream. t&faction of his friends. But the public may have a different view of the Governor's performance than that of his grooms. In the first place, it is discovered by the unblanketiug that the Governor is both a bogus farmer and a bogus Democrat, although his renegading has brought him - A ! hi'£h political office. It seems that the 0 overnor began his career as a lawyer in; Prtiffalo. He was a Republican iu those i 1 jays. He wanted an office. In fact, he wanted to be District Attorney at the -ex pense of Grover Cleveland, who W*B the Democratic candidate for that office. His party, however, nominated another candidate, and Boies went off to Iowa to become a Democrat and a farmer. In his address to the Reform Club, which may fairly be presumed to be founded on his personal experience, he declares that it cost $8 an acre for five years past to harvest corn in Iowa and that the product yielded only $7.83 per acre. Tbe Governor must be a very poor farmer indeed to present such figures as these. As he ia said to have a fair bank account we may be permitted to wonder how in the world he got it, if his farming was all on this sort of basis. There is, earthly use of calling the Governor a humbug, because the Republicans of Iowa will take care of him next year, when he comes up for re-election, and his little boomlet at the Reform Club dinner will thereafter be invisible even under a free trade magnifying glass. Acts at once, never fails, DeWitt's cough and consumption cure. A remedy for asthma and that feverish condition which, accompanies a severe cold.—Dr. Sheet?. The Temple of Incus. A correspondent writes from Peru to The Gennania that the remains of a teihjde, dating back from the period of tlie Tncas, have been discovered while clearing the ground for a small place on one of the affluents of the upper Maranon, in the great plain which lies at the foot of the eastern Cordilleras. There was an inclosing wall'Of .great extent, fully eighty inches thick, the inclosure within being divided by other walls into halls aud smaller chambers. The plan and the painted inscriptions resemble what ha? been found in other places ascertained to be ancient Peruvian temples. Hence it is inferred that this also wr^B a similar temple. Several buildings of this kind have been found scattered 'over Peru. The Spaniards demolished.them and floods bearing quantities cj gaud from the Cordilleras covered 'over the remains, to be succeeded l' A ter "by a growth of shrtfbs, and even trees, quite hiding from view the m^Q^y underneath.
