This paper Is the olllclal paper of Kossuth county and the city of Algona, The democrats in the last congress voted against putting sugar on the freo list: Remember that. Will the next congress put a Mills tariff on sugar? bill We have heard nothing lately about the repeal of the Me Kinley Bill. Our contemporary the Algona Courier refuses to recognize the difference between a protective tariff and a tariff for revenue only. So do all the democratic "organs" • The outlook for 1892 grows more hopeful for the Republican party as time advances. It is only a question whether the people will be made to /fee that the democratic prophecies ha|$> not only failed to come true but to«fl, great extent the exact opposite of what was prophesi- i ; ,ed has taken place. I P. T. Baraum, the king of all show- j&ien, is dead. He died one of the best known men in America. His name is almost a household word. There is much in his life that is worthy of study and admiration. He possessed an indomitable •will that would have made him pre-eminent in any profession or occupation. The Sioux City Journal and the Dubuque Telegraph have been engaged for some time past in firing back and forth across the state at each other to the evident worsting of the Telegraph. Matters relative to the tariff have been the subjects of their discussions. It is better to think twice before inviting attention from the editorial batteries of the Journal. We import annually $1.951.000 worth of merchandise from San Domingo and export to that country but $920,000 worth. A special commissioner from San Domingo is now on his way to the United States bearing full power to negotiate a reciprocity arrangement with > this country within the provisions of the IMc Kinley bill. The popularity of reciprocity increases. The Upper Des Moines has commenced to do the grand crawfish act on the tariff question. The McKinley bill has not proved to be so far-reachingly disastrous in its effects as our "Sagwa" contemporary had at first supposed. If the Upper Des Moines is ever able to make up its mind what policy it really does endorse we should be happy to have it answer the challenge published some time ago by the REPUBLICAN. All this talk about the "billion congress" and "the steal of a thousand millions of dollars from the pockets of the people" makes us tired. Would the democratic party conduct the business of the government without making any appropriations? If not, the organs should be satisfied with simply saying that the Fifty First congress was extravagant in its appropriations. The talk about a steal of a billion of dollars from the people is demagogical. The Algona Courier objects to the pro vision in the McKinley bill for the payment of a bounty of two cents per pound for sugar manufactured in this country. There is where the iniquity of the sugar schedule comes in. The Courier then, is opposed to the establishment of beet sugar factories in Iowa, is it? That is our only inference. The bounty was intended to encourage capital to go into just such enterprises. The establishment of beet sugar factories in Iowa means hundreds of thousands of dollars in the pockets of the farmers of the state, but the Courier is opposed to the bounty. An artice from Prof. Cornwall, of Dakota, who is making a lecture tour of the state under the auspices of the Iowa State Temperance Alliance, appears in this issue of the REPUBLICAN. The Professor regards the situation in this state as "critical." Every effort is being made by the friends of the saloon to create dissatisfaction among the people, with the present law, and thus pave the way for election of a Democratic legislature in November, which means directly the repeal of our prohibitory laws. Unlimited funds are at the disposal of the saloon ftud "hole in the wall," to assist ia evading the law and sending out the impression that "prohibition is a failure." Tlie saloon will be defeated or prevail next fail according to the will of the sovereign IW.ople,—without mincing matters we Wight say—according as the Republican 01 Democratic party is elevated to pow- The Australian colonies have recently adopted a federal constitution giving them a government closoly modeled after the government of the United States. The head of the government will still be a Governor General appointed by the British crown, but his authority is merely nominal, the real power being versed in a senate and house elected by the people and closly modeled after the two houses of the United States Congress. England retains but a very feeble hold upon Australia, and the day is not far off when that country will be independent of Great Britain in name as well as in reality. "If wo do not buy, we cannot sell," was heard quite frequently during the last campaign and the observation was always made ,with especial reference to the McKinley bill and the effect it was sure to have upon our trade relation with other countries. The statement is not true in the first place, and it has proved to be more especially untrue since the McKinley bill became a law. During the last fiscal year we sold to Great Britain and Ireland goods worth $444,459,000 and purchased in return to the extent of only $186,488,956. The McKinley bill has now been a law for about six months. During the months of January and February the exports of the United States amounted to $12,000,000 more than .the exports of the corresponding period of last year. Our imports in the same two months were $2,000.000 more than those of a year ago. The Homestead of April lOtn contains a lengthy editorial upon the Southern Alliance. Considering the fact that an attempt is being made to establish this organization upon northern ground the article in the Homestead is very timely. The Southern Alliance is an oath bound institution, monopolistic in tendancy, while the sentiment of the farmers of the northwest is opposed to all that looks in the direction of monopoly. The Southern Alliance had for its prime motive from the start the organization of a gigantic cptton trust to control the cotton market of the world. The Homestead sites the action of the Ocala convention upon the report of a committee appointed to investigate the conduct of certain high officers in the southern body as of- fording incontestable evidence of how utterly careless the Ocala body as a whole was with respect to the question of monopolies, and how little capaple it is of representing the sentiment of the northwest on a question which is here regarded as vital—which Iowa people especially understand with the thoroughness born of long and careful study, and in relation to which they have formulated laws that have been accepted as models of excellence by the people of surrounding states. WHO NOW WILL MAKE OUR CUTLERY* American Economist: The McKinley Tarill caused a diminution in the exports of Sheffield cutlery during the month of January to the extent of nearly 50 per cent.— London Manufacturer and Inventor, March 20. Yet the American people will continue to,use just as many knives, scissors and razors as they ever used, and they will bo of just as good quality, too. The question naturally arises, where will they come from? From American factories which employ American labor, of course. Do American working-men grasp the idea? HEAD Y-MADE CLOTHING. American Economist: The general public have a vague knowledge of the fact that ready- made clothing ia better and cheaper in the United States than in any country in the world, says a Western exchange, but they do not know what a tremendous lead we have in that line. It is simply incomprehensible to the uninitiated how a very presentable suit of clothes can be sold at retail for a $10 bill, and a suit fit to wear on any occasion furnished at a cost of from $25 to$85. The reason ia that American clothing manufacturerers haye not only kept up with the procession in the wonderful advancement in American, but have led it. " THE RETURN OF THE PENDULUM. 1 ' The Sunday Register of April 13 notes " the return of the pendulum" and the increasing favor with which the people look upon the McKinley law. Time will make everything right for the Republican party, and there is plenty of time before 1893. The Register is encouraged, and makes an observation aa follows: The passage of the new tariff law and the overwhelming defeat that followed in the consressionalelections tried Republican faith. While a few forsook the party in the time of its greatest ^popularity, the many remained steadfast, fhe friends of protection were not found wanting. They remained courageous because they had faith in the new tariff and even greater faith in the party .that represents the American policy in government. It baa come about aa predicted' Falsehoods, , cajujpony, owoquy^-aJlhave wasted strength. inconzri WWT'>MfO*T tory and wrecked their own party, intoxicated with temporary success. The Democratic party with anti-tariff and pro tariff factions is fighting the Republican party, now more securely united than ever before upon the great issues of the tariff, riie pendulum has been returning, and it will bo on the right side of the perpendicular in 1892. THE Cltl81ti OF THE BATTLE. Kd. Republican: There is a crisis in the prohibition battle such as has not yet been met. Iowa has led the battle and learned the blessings prohibition brings. For her to return to license is a blow to temperance too little understood by its friends. The enemies of sobriety are fully awake to the importance of the hour. They are centering all their energies on Iowa. The brewers' congress has voted $100,000 to be used in encouraging the violation of law and trying to demoralize faith in the law. To this end their agents all over the state take orders and get agents to deliver wine and beer to farmers' boys and any who will accept. At first these are gifts. "Holes in wall" are established, and when one is closed it is staightway set in motion again. Immunity is promised, from a justice's fine to a governor's pardon. There is a desperation, born of despair. Despair doubles every man's ability. Iowa is sure to return to the saloon unless our churches and sober citizens awake to the matter and awake speedily. While the fight is non-partisan there is a way of escape from the rum rule. If the great salvation is neglected, there will surely come a party, and Iowa will know nothing but flight between democracy and rum against the field. British capital is pushing our law with the weight of $100, 000,000 in the scale. In this contest of right against wrong, the right wins in the end. But what a condition awaits Iowa ad interim. The calamity of a decade of saloon rule must be avoided, for who can tell the blood that will be spilled in the final overthrow of the demon rum? Will God's people listen to the warnings that are given? The church has no mission equal to this, at this time. Our politicians must be taught that the people are in the fight to a finish. That we will not surrender—our statesmen must learn that true statesmanship must include temperance and righteousness. A. R. CORNWALL. ENGLAND ALARMED OVER RECIPROCITY. N. Y. Mail and Express: A Washington newspaper some time ago published an elaborate array of statistics which attempted to show that our reciprocity treaty would not help American manufacturers to gain a larger place in Brazilian markets. These figures gave great satisfaction to the free trade journals of this country, but from some recent utterances of the English papers, this view does not seem to be shared by the English manufacturers, who are our greatest rivals in the South American trade. The alarm shown by Englishmen over the probable consequences of the Brazilian treaty finds a significant expression in the following from a recent issue of the Manchester (England) Guardian: By this treaty American cotton goods are admitted .into Brazil at a reduction of 25 per cent, on the duties paid on the same goods imported from other countries. As the duties levied by Brazil amount on an average to fully 100 per cent, on their original "Manchester value when the exchange is at par, their payment in gold at present means nearly another 50 per cent.—equal to 150 per cent, on first cost. It fellows that the 25 per cent, is practically 87J£ per cent, on the hrst cost in favor of American goods By a further fall of the exchange this might easily be raised to 50 per cent., and sucn a fall is by no means improbable. The Lancashire people should understand what this means to their trade. At the present rate of exchange of about 19 pence, equal to 1 milreis—American goods will have the following advantages over ours: On printed cottons, 10 shillings and over per lump of 135 yards; on Oxfords, ginghams, regattas, etc., 1 penny per yard and over; on bleached cottons, 3 shillings 9 pence and over per piece of 40 yards. Every fall of the exchange will increase this advantage. That our industries can not possibly compete against such odds is clear, and our exports to Brazil, amounting now to over £7,700,000 per annum, will soon show different figures. Those free traders who so persistently expressed the opinion and hope that reciprocity with Brazil would not benefit New England manufacturers are requested to read the last sentence of the above candid confession on the part of one of their most influential journals. Such testimony from the center of Great Britain's manufacturing industries is conclusive evidence that England is becoming alarmed at the prospect of the United States capturing the trade of South America. was abated. Is any man so blind as not to learn by this one object lesson that the tariff Is a tax and that the consumer pays it ? And as we paid the tariff on sugar so we are paying the tariff, and a heavier one on nearly every other manufactured article that we consume. This sugar item is simply an educator, but let us not to lay the delusive unction to our souls that we are getting sugar any cheaper after all, for while our McKinley statesmen removed the tariff on sugar, they agreed to pay the raiser of sugar a bounty of two cents on every pound he produces. So when we buy 20 pounds of sugar for a dollar, we also pay the sugar raiser 40 cents of a bounty, and the sugar really costs us $1.40, Now, what we would like to know is why the raiser of sugar should be paid a bounty by the raiser of corn and wheat? The corn and the wheat and the hogs and the cattle must be sold in competition with the world, and why should not sugar be raised on the same terms ? A little thought on this subject will cause men to ask themselves why they are McKinleyites. We agree with the Courier as to the fact that the sugar item is an educator. It proves incontestably that the kind of a tariff advocated by the Courier—a tariff for revenue only—is a tax. The Courier like all its democratic "tariff for revenue only" contemporaries fails to recognize a distinction between the two tariffs— the Democratic kind and the Republican kind—when talking to the people about the iniquities of the tariff system. The Courier does not deny that the McKinley bill has benefitted the people to the extent of removing a burdensome tax from one of the necessaries of life. A denial of that fact would be considered foolhardy for even a democratic paper. From the Courier's editorial quoted above we take it that our contemporary is very well pleased with the new sugar schedule —barring the bounty feature for the encouragement of American production. Has the Courier forgotten that the democratic members of the last congress did all in their power to preserve the tax on sugar, and has it further forgotten the high tax sugar schedule in the Democratic Mills bill ? The Democratic party would raise the revenues of the government by keeping the tax on the poor man's sugar. When it comes to showing up where the Democratic party would land the country, if it once got into power withfits high tax, no home industries theories, the sugar item is something of an educator. After establishing the fact that the kind of a tariff the Algona Courier advocates is a direct tax upon the consumer and that the sugar item should serve the people as an educator ouer contemporary proceeds, in the editorial we have quoted above to presume upon the intelligence of its readers, misrepresenting the real provisions of the McKinley bill, with reference to the bounty to be hereafter paid the American manufacturer of sugar. We are not get ting sugar any cheaper after all, because for every twenty pounds of sugar we buy wo have to pay the producer forty cents bounty, so the sugar really costs us $1.40, says the above clipping from the Courier. There is remarkable logic in this statement, and still more remarkable arithmetic. The Courier cannot be ignorant of the fact that the government pays the bounty to the American manufacturer only, and that the American manufacturer only produces about one-fifth of the sugar consumed in this country. The ^Courier has only followed the Democratic plan of getting up a political editorial. Board Proceeding's. April 6th, 1891, THE COURIER ON SUGAR. The Algona Coutier is so very convincing and withal so logically democratic whenever it tackles the tariff question, that we use our shears tais week in order to give some of its arguments a still wider circulation.
