An exchange • observes that oao most encouraging features of the 'corn con trovcrsy is ""fee fact that ttie'Gidar Rapids <3a7.ette>is taking the ernor Boies. The com discussion still g»es 'OE, and is being .productive of gooi? results. It has aroused the farmers to thwik and talk, about'the subject more than they ever did befere, and it will probably elect a Republican governor next fall. Col. H.'K. Hood, of Linn county, is mentioned as a possible nominee'' for governor 1 on'the Republican ticket. He is •well'known all over the state^ad is the staunches* of staunch Republicans. Col. Koofl would make a strong candidate. Secretary Windom was one • of the few men stf'fortunate as to have^no enemies. He was loved and respected 'by all who fenew'' < Mm. His services -to (the country foavet'been eminent and 'he <vrill go down in history as one of our greatest financiers und'foremost statesmen. •"lisrequires the largest-dhanty of tliej imagination to recognize in<the Senate the;! features of a deliberative'body." Mr.? Deliver was right.

What "blull'," says tJie New York Press, referring to the threat -inpee the part of & •various southern states to make any ap- . propriation for the World's fair, should Hhe Elections bill be passed. "Talk about Georgia and Alabama and Tennessee and Texas and Arkansas, not exhibit ing and displaying their resources at the World's fair, what nonsense," "Chicago •can stand it, the World's fair wfll survive it, if these states with lands to sell, mines tO'develop, towns and eMiies to build,-do away." ancy -of our achiexienieuts begot over confidence and in H'828 congress swept: away all protection to our foreign ship- ing'fasterests and oer ports were opened to^f/he ships of other nations on the sairre terns as our OWR. This policy has almost silenced out ship yards and driven •our flag from tka high seas. In the 3aat 35 years we ha«e paid the foreign •ship •owners nearly $3,000,000,000 for our •carrying trade which might have been faept at home-enriching our own ipeople. Mr. Window favored ample protection to our mercha«i marine. Referring to the money question Mr. Windom. s»id: It is essential to commerce t-hat the currency with which it is conducted be adapted, both in quantity and duality, to the wanfs-of trade, as that the vehicles of transportation should be adapted to their purposes. If the circulation be deficient, trade is crippled, prices fall, -obligations are dishonored, distrust is created, and commercial panic and disaster ensue. If, on the rtther hand, circulatiios is redun dant, prices become temporarily inflated, wild (^peculations are stimulated, debts are redidessly contracted, 'credit is dan gerously expanded, and for ?a time trade seems'to float upon the high tide of sue cess, 'When suddenly Uve failure of some largcftirm or banking house discloses the true situation, and the 'entire fabric of fictitious prosperity falls with a crash evewmore disastrous than can be pro- duosid by a deficient circiiVation. The ideal financial system would be one that should furnish, .{joist enough of absolutely sound currency to meet the', legitimate wants of tratie, and no more;j and that should have enough elasticity of, volume to adjust itself'to the varying! necessities of the people. I know thiei s«3ms diftlcult of attainment, but I believe it is substantially possible. Coulix sech a circulating medium be secured tire gravest commercial "disasters which threaten our future might be avoided. Believing that there is not enough of either gold or silver in<the world to meet (the necessities of business, I am an eare- 'CSt hi racialist and 'Concede to no one a •stronger desire than I feel for the free atid •unlimited coinage of silver, as soon.>as conditions can be readied through inter national agreement, i or otherwise, "by which such coinage shall be'safe. But it issue—and it is not likely^that the convention this year will. The concluding resolution of last year's Republican platform reads as follows: We declare against compromise with tbe saloon, and stand by the people of teis state in their hostility to its existence., spread and power. * » And for approval of the work and record of the Re publican party of this state in this great cause of temperance, involving the pub lie peace and the safety ot good govern ment, we appeal confidently to tho elect ors of 3iowa. Frederic Remington's illustrations in Harper's Weekly of scenes and incidents connected vilh the late Indian disturbances have attracted wide attention on account of their spirited character and the fidelity of their representations, The forthcoming number of the weekly, to be published Jim. 28th, will contain another article by Mr, Remington entitled "Lieutenant Ca-se.y's Last Scout," accompanied by a number of characteristic illustrations of the Chis-chis chash or Cheyenne In dians. is my firm conviction-that for this coun- "iCThe Iowa farmer raises ;his own -seed oeru and his own horses and mules and in-most cases his own boj'-s, and yet the Democratic juggler witfc statistics -and figures, in order to give Gov.

Every true spirited Republican is sorry to know tho fa.te of the Eletions bill,— practically killed by a weak kneed Republican Senate. We behevein "Republicanism, from the shoulder" and are sorry to-see a Republican Senate domineered by a-buHdoxing minority. The Elections bill was 11 patriotic measure framed in the interest «f honest elections and ttie rights of disfranchised American citizens. With the present house of representatives as a model in its new features of a deliberative assembly, with a Republican president waiting to sign tho Elections bill and witli the Republican party as a whole approving it, the United States Senate sirapiy backed down before a blustering minority. The defeat of the Elections bill i« the result. try to enter upoti that experiment now and under existing "conditions would be extremely disostrouc, and that it would result, not in bi metallism, but in sitrcr mono-metallistn. .Such an experim&nt would, in niy judgment, prove a greater disappointment to its advocates than to any one else. Theyiinsist that it would expand tho circulation and permanently enhance the value of silver. I believe it would produce a ewift and severe contraction and eventually reduce the manhet value of silver. Let* ine briefly suggest some of my reasons i'or this belief. Free and unlimited coinage of silveivby the United States, wiule the other great nations pursue an ojtposite policy, would invite all the owners of that metal throughout the world to exchange 371.14 grains of pure silver, wo'rth about 88 ets. for 23.22 grains of ^ure gold, worth-ev ery where 100 cents. Nearly all the options of Europe are anxious to exchange their silver for gold, and they woulcUit once accept so tempting an offer. 'The mint statistics of the-treasury department show that the stock-of full legal tend«r silver in Europe amounts to $1,101^400,000, and that of this amount the banlcs .of Prance, Germany, Austro-Hungary, the Netherlands and Belgium hold $438,806, • 065. A large part of tiiese vast stocks of silver would be ready .for transfer to -HS at once, and the swiftest steamers would, be employed to to the Treasury in order that the proceeds the owner-e might buy go!d exchange on Europe before oui\stock of gold-should be exhausted. Would our own people-await the arrival of these silver argosies from Europe be-j fore acting? Not unlessrthe Yankee has f lost his quick scent of danger and forgotten his cunning. Bank depositors, trust companies, tbe holders of United States notes and geld certificates would instantly lock up aU the gold at command, and then join the panic (inspired -procession to the Treasury, each and all anxious, to be in time to grasip the golden .prize before it is too late. (Probably be •fore the swiftest ocean greyhound could iland its silver cargo at New ^rork the last gold dollar within reach would be safely hidden away in private boxes, and in vaults of safe deposit uompa&ies, to be brought put only by a high premium for OKportation. This sudden retirement of $600,000,000 of gold, with the accompanying panic, would cause contraction and commercial disaster unparalleled in human experience, and our country would at oaice step down to the silver basis, whew there would be no longer any in- duceanent for coinage, and silver dollar s would! sink to their bullion value.

A clear, forcible and concise argument, it was characteristic ef Mr. Windoin. ' 'Our Country's Prosperity Dependant upon its Instruments of Commerce" was the subject of the toast. Mr. Windom confined his remarks to "the chief instrumentalities of commerce, transportation and money. Starting out with the assumption that the wealth of a , nation was dependent upon its commerce, he spoke of our domestic commerce which has been carefully fostered ajod promoted by the nation, comparing Us condition with that of our foreign com- At oae tiflxe our merchant m»\w The upper house of the Wisconsin state legislature voted the repeal of the 'Bennett law yesterday.

Ever since the Sioux City convention last summer, a bowl has been going up from the Democratic press that the Republican platform was a"weak and straddling affair"and that it "repudiated prohibition." Every third partyite and every enemy of the Republican party in Iowa joined in the howl. The latest echo of this howl is from the Courier. The Sioux City Journal quotes from the Courier and comments as follows: But why is the Journal so anxious on the prohibition question all at once? It used not to be very active in that direction. It is said that the Journal editor wrote the state platform of the Republican party 'ast summer, and in it he ignored the prohibition issue. — Algona Courier.

The Western Rural and American Stockman is one of tbe oldest and ablest farm journals published in this country, and none is more fully identified with the best interests of the agricultural classes. It deals not only with the farm but more especially with the farmer. Its columns are devoted to subjects involving literature and science, and its aims are for the promotion and elevation of the social and economic condition of the farmer and his family. The Rural advocates physical culture and manual trainindaj well as intellectual endowment. It believes that the state owes to the citizen the right to such an education as shall tit him for a self-reliant citizenship and tbat our public school system should be enlarged along the more practical lines.
