It will be a question of saloon or no saloon. Prohibition should receive a henry endorsement from every pulpit in Iowa. The church should keep out Of politics if possible, but it •would be reprehensible in the cliristian ministry to stand silently by and sec the saloon inarch back across our borders. The Dubuque Telegraph in controversy. •with the yioux City Journal declares that the McKinley law is probably not the cause of the high comparative prices paid for cereals— svhich everyone will admit — and in the next paragraph candidly ad mils the charge of the Journal that were prices lower, the democratic newspapers would probably attribute the responsibility l<> the tarifi! and the lack of a suiVi cieucy of money. ' The American Investment Company of Emmetsburg, has assets running away up into the millions, and does business in almost every state and territory in the south and west. Col. Ormsby, the dent, of the company, told the editors of the Upper Des Moines Editorial Association that low.l was the very, best state in which the company did business, and that an Iowa farm mortgage at G per cent, would find a ready 'market in the cast while it was hard to rind a sale for others at 7. cause it was cheaper? thina'. did the foreign privilege? "Under these conditions is it any wonder that we have few steamships and little carrying I rude? Is this the way lo make 'our Hag known and respected in all the purts of the world? Would it be class legislation to give the preference to our own ocean freight and mail lines even if we had to pay a little more for the ser vice; or would it be unwise or unpatriotic to do so? •What kind of a legislation is necessary in this country to protect us against either the rubber trust of South America or the tin-plate trust of England, or the discrimination against our pork in Germany, C. W. SAKCIIKT. Now is the opportunity' for the Republican of the country. . If the people arc properly educated there will he a landslide in the right direction in '0:2. Isow is the time for the work of education to begin, the people are i-ti-11 'interested in the tar ill' question and stilj remember the campaign promises of the democratic party. Time is beginning to vindicate the McKiniey bill. Keep the people in formed. Make the next campaign a cam paign of education and the people will vote an educated ballot. Johnson Brigham's address before the tapper De;; Moines Editorial Association at Eminelsburg, lust week, .upon the subject, "Independence within party lines," JL'JIE REACTION. At a late meeting of the American Protective Tariff League the president reviewed the work of the year. The league started out in enthusiastic support of the Me Kinky bill and fought every issue presented by the opponents of the bill.. As.a result of this course about the time of the campaign, the league ''began to find a strong current affecting not only public opinion but the income of the league which steadily declined"—But the tide is already begining to turn. The president said further in his address. I find that the latest sentiment,'evidenced in the correspondence which comes into this ollice is that there .is no reason to doubt that Ih.i; people are becoming more enlightened and more favorable to Protection, although their minds for a. time may be diverted by some more urgent contingency. For instance, the farmers are now diverted by the question of currency, u-so that, it is the engrossing subject which occupies their attention. "I am confident, however, that as time goes) on we shall lind that this question of currency will lose some of its present importance, and the farmers will recognize that it is to Protection they must look for prosperity. The strongest sentiment in the letters which come into tliis office is that we must buckle on our armor and go ahead, and the result can not fail to be. satisfactory to us. "During the course of the year, in meeting the various questions that have come up, we have issued special docu ments from time to time; one of which wns called "Export Discounts," sent out to meet the assertions that were circulat ed in all the agricultural and weekly papers to the e.l'iieet that the fanners in this country were obliged to pay more than foreign fariiicn for agricultural implements. The argument made in this oflice to discredit that statement was successful, and was published in full in the Congressional Record as part of a speech of Major McKinley on that subject. "If the later assertions made against the McKinley bill could have been treated in the same way, we believe that the elections would have been other than they were. But with the adroitness that the'enemy has shown all along, they waited until the election was upon us and then began their crusade, when they knew we would have but little or no time to refute their statements. Tlieir assert shot and killed by a tramp last, Wednesday morning, at Long Point, the first station east of Tain a. ^Spain lias accepted the proposal of the United States to negotiate a treaty of reciprocity with Cuba. The Eleventh annual convention of the Fanners alliance is in progress at Omaha behind closed doors. A western genius has invented a machine for the manufacture of binding twine from slough grass.

Both the Elections Rill and Clot lire Resolution were sidetracked in the Senate Monday by a vote of !35 to 84. The Freedmans' Aid Society of the M.

The loss lo the electric companies-in Ne-w York from the recent storm, will, amount to more than one half million dollars.

We will notice a few of . the leading thoughts in the address. "In our social economy there is an infinitely more important fact and factor independence of the individual, aud that is the interdependence of all." ' Those who would carry their dreams of the emancipation of the party press into operation will wake up to liud society adjusted lo "correlation, interdependence, reciprocity uud not to individualism and consequent isolation." There is .ample scope for independence inside party lines, while independence outside of party lines, upuii the part ol the political newspapers is marked by "isolation and 'serious loss of force." The enslavement Of the party press U) the fetich aud tyranny of party, exists solely i» the heated imagination of the reveler m independence, aud the 'tyranical party boss', is, so i'^r as your experience aud mine is concerned, tinian of straw set up for the satisfaction found in kicking him over." "There is nothing iu the idenlilieation of a newspaper with one of the great part its of the country which stops the utterance djf u single stricture upon dishonesty . in high places or u bingle demand for measures needed. Iu fact, oue of the important duties of a journalist within putty lines is'V> tone up ] weaken, ion that the McKinley bill augmented the cost, of living had a great influence, and I think no other reason can be given for the result, of the November elections. Now the country is becoming aware of the falseness of'this statement, and that we and our friends have presented the honest side of the question. It will result in popular confidence in us, aud a reversal of the recent vote. Miss Grace Gridlcy, of Am boy, Illinois, hns just awakened from a nine month's sleep. Her ease, bus excited considerable interest among the medical fraternity. Some of the democratic legislatures have pnssed resolutions to the effect that if the Force, bill is passed no appropriation will b<; made for the World's Fair.
