The past records have shown that annual differences in the weight ot a crop are not often more than a pound above or below the average weight for a series of years, the lowest for seven years being 06.5 in 1888, and the highest 08.5 in 1887. The yield per acre is the same as in 1888, when the product was 410,000,000 bushels, and with two ex - ceptions is the largest rate during the past decade. Tiio area in oats was 26 • 431 369 acres, ami the yield per acre 19.8 bushels. This is only 74 per cent, of the average of tea years past, which was 26.6 bushels, and the smallest rafce of yield ever reported -by the oflice.

RE- Mr. Wilson estimates that only about one tenth of all the corn raised in Iowa !3 S , the r SUte> , The olher nine te nths is fed to Iowa hogs and cattle. The Iowa farmer has quit raising corn to sell. "Is there anything more transitory than political honor," asks the Sioux City Journal. "'George Bancroft the historian will live in history, but for a quarter of a century before his death, very few re xnembered'that he had been secretary of the navy." So far as known, not a single Demo cratic newspaper in all northwest Iowa has answered the challenge of the Sioux City Journal and named an individual fp--nt;r who has been raising corn at a .^. Very few men would be willing to •nus subscribe to their own incompeten cy as farmers and publish a record of their failures to the world, to save Gov. Boies. It cannot be disputed that the right kind of farming pays good returns. Name an individual example of the Boies Idnd of a farmer. The mayor of Sioux City is a democrat- every member of the city council with one exception is a democrat, and the law and order league has given up in dispair. Prohibition was at one time enforced in Sioux City, and it was then that Coving- toif became notorious, and the home of everything that was criminal and indecent. Prohibition is a farce to day in Sioux City. ByMayor Palmer's system of enforcing the law, each saloon keeper in the city is hauled up and fined $50 for keeping a nuisance, he then has perfect immunity from the law until the next general round up which occursin 30days. This system of license yields a larce reve- A JVKJ1N OF THE COMING ACTION. How completely are the recent campaign lies refuted, as time is beginning to vindicate the campaign position of the Republican party. The people have not yet forgotten the wail which went up to heaven from the entire calamity press in consequence of the new tariff on tin plate. The tariff was a tax in every in stance but particularly so in the case of tm plate. The democratic party worked the tin plate racket for all there was in it- Peddlers were sent out in the doubtful districts, paid by democratic cam paign committees of Indiana and Ohio offering tin cups for sale to the good country people at a. fabulous price, and exphu-ning that the 'remarkable increase m the price of the article was due to the McKtaley Bill. So the campaign was conducted, and by such methods as these the "land slide" was effected. The recent campaign and the calamity stories circulated will not be forgotten in '9" when -there will be a land slide in the opposite direction. Below is a quotation ontm plate market taken fromthe"3toves and Hardware Reporter," of Jan. 8 -a purely non- partisan paper published solely m the interest of the trade It looks. as though the history of wire nailc would be the history of tin plate. ."There is a further decline in orirp.? since ast week's report, due to lower quotations from London The inquTS continues fair and there is little uneas? •ness about the future. Last week the New York market was 23M and 23 asked This week it is 20 bid wfth 20 president in 1892, and I believe he will be nominated and elected." But Ins vote m Iowa will be woefully light if ho depends upon Slanderer Boies for his popularity in that state—Minneapolis Tribune TI><; Tvu(> l>l-in<;ta1lHt. He who advocates the gold standard is the true bi racialist, for he is earnestly in favor of using as much silver as can be used, and maintain gold payments. He who advocates free coinage is the trim mono-metalist, for free coinage of silver will drive the gold, except that held as a reserve by the banks, entirely out of use, substituting temporarily loan certificates and other paper issues for money in place thereof, until finally our stand' ard of value shall become the same as the standard of China, Japan and India, instead of that of the advanced nations of Europe.—John Jay Knox.

The question of high license or prohibition is simply a question of saloon or no saloon,—the people of lova must choose. This state can not afford to bid for a return of the saloon by electing a democratic legislature. The policy of the party throughout the state is the policy of the democratic mayor and his aldermen at Sioux -City. ' PU1JLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM. -—.. Jim has been appointed to the chair of agriculture at the Ames Aericul tural Oollese. It is a cold day when lama Jim can t make a living on the labor of others. The whole Agricultural College is a humbug that ought to be abated. The above is one of the Courier's late editorials. We presume the editor of the Courier considers our entire public school system a humbug and would like to see the "little red school house" abated. We believe that the farmer's boy has a right to au education, and an education that will make him a more intelligent man, a more useful citizen, and a better farmer Vthan his father before him. We believe in educated farmers and in the Agricultural. College. The recent changes at Ames have been in the right direction, ihe College willhereafter be pre-eminent. ly an agricultural c«iir.«i xr« !,„*. ... au agricultural school, pointment to the chair could have been made.

Inter Ocean: How nicely the free traders wonld progress in their efforts to deceive the people if there were no system of gathering statistics, and if there were no trade newspapers, to which political considerations are as nothing at all, but to which the purpose of advising business men as to the actual condition of trade, manufactures, mining, and agriculture is everything. The McKinley bill has now been in force four months and twelve days The free traders told the people that its first effect^ ould be to limit our foreign trade, that Europe and the rest of the wor'd would not buy our goods if we did not buy tbeitB. That if we wanted to flourish we must confine ourselves to raising and exporting food and cotton, and exporting them to other nations who would give us manufactured goods in return for them If we placed protective tariffs on foreign manufactures we were to lobe our export trade. That was what the free traders told us. But Dun's Weekly Review tells us what has happened, and it is just what the free traders said would not happen. For the first two weeks of January, 1891, being the first two weeks of the fourth month of the now tariff, our exports from New lork alone have been greater by 15 pei cent, than during the first two weeks of January, 1890. Onr imports for the same time have decreased by 15 per cent. That is to say, we have kept 15 per cent, more of out money at home than we did in the first two weeks of January, 1890, and we have received 15 per cent, more money from abroad. Our income from one line of trade is 13 per cent, greater, and our It is reported that the revolt in Chili is .como m !,7t, a ver y s . erious Aspect.

"| Iowa Weather and Crop Bulletin :-The lesumates of products of corn, wheat aqd Ioatsofl890, completed by the department of agriculture, make the com aggregate 1,489,960,000 bushels, wheat 399,262 000 bushels, oats 618,631,000 bush'els The area of corn, which was slightly increased in planting, was reduced by utter failure .and abandonment by more than, 6,000 000 (acres, the area harvested being'nearly 71,070,783 acres. The average yield per acre was 10.7 bushels and the supply for Consumption per head of population 23 bushels or 11 bushels less than last year, tbe rate of yield was lower in 1887 and Jj^^' years of very severe drouths. Wyke aggregate wheat area is 86,087,154 f Jres nearly tlio same as 1879, and the Bleld per acre 11.1 bushels. Of tho quaii- Lf tUe grading is eomevfhjkt lower than outgo is 15 per cent, less. The free traders also told us that the McKinley bill would make clothing so much dearer that the woolen industry would be crippled. But Dun's Weekly Review tells as that "the market for woolen goods is broader, and the demand for clothiers distinctly better, while the boot and shoe trade continues highly satisfactory." How very false were the alarms of a free trader. The people are buying more clothing and boots and shoes than ever, and at prices which the advertising columns of every newspaper, free trade pa pers included, show to be quite a? low as those which ruled in January last. "Print cloths Jiate sold at tfie lowest price ever recorded," says Dun's Review of the past week's trade. Really, now, is it not absurd to talk of "higher prices on account of the tariff?"
