FRANK W. CALKINS. Reciprocity is not another name for free trade, it is another term for protection. The one man that can get any thing he asks for from the Republican party is James G. Elaine, the greatest statesman that walks this planet. "If we don't buy we can't sell" is the chant of numerous democratic papers that doubtless take potatoes, oats and other farm produce on subscription. Dubuque County has an anti-horse thief society and the Democrats are counting on carrying that county next fall. It is a remarkable coincidence. "There is a great deal of talking nowadays" said Secretary of the Treasury Foster, recently, about a billion dollar congress but the people should remember that this is a billion dollar country. The time for turning loose the college graduate upon the world 'to revolutionize society is again, at hand. It doesn't take long for the young college graduates to ascertain that life is not a school day dream. The republican state convention cannot do a better thing this year than to reaffirm its declartipn of lastyear in favor of the use of the entire silver product of the American mines as money, and every dollar of it as good as any other dollar in the laud. It strikes us that the American press are wasting much space over the Baccarat scandal. The whole matter is interesting to us, only in so far as it ia a turning inside out of the private-life o| some 6f England's titled aristocracy for the edification of any who may admire England's emasculated system of royalty as an institution. Ex Senator Sam'l McNuttof Wuscatine announces himself as a candidate before the coming Republican convention for the nomination for lieutenant Governor. Mr. McNutthas been prominent in Iowa politics for the pajrt twenty-fire years, He is well known as a leading Iowa Re? publican and will probably make a strong pull for the nomination. '•Fill the state with Republican, clubs" the New York Press, in cUpr organize. The J»reas gives ' of Iowa as well as to the Republicans of New York, Organize. The Republican party in Iowa needs organization. Had the party been sufficiently organized to have guaranteed a full vote two years ago,. Horace Boies would never have made his New York speech &s governor of Iowa. The Republican party of Iowa never stood in greater need of thorough organization and aggressive leadership. The next campaign gives promise of the hardest political battle ever fought in Iowa. The Democratic party is backed by Cobden club money, and funds unlimited frojn the combined liquor associations of the nation are at their disposal. The old party, so far as the next election is concerned, will stand or fall in November according as the people decide for or against prohibition. Let every Republican remember that. CREATING A WRONG IMPRESSION. The' editor of the Upper Des Moines is manifesting great solicitude lest the im pression that the Kossuth County Tern perance Alliance is an instrument of the third party, controlled and directed by third party apostles, should not go abroad with sufficient weight. In a special to the State Register reporting the temperance meeting of two weeks ago Brother Ingham very plainly intended to give the impression that it was a third party convention. Indeed, so strong was his intimation to that effect that President Tellier, of the County Alliance, deemed it advisable to write a letter to the Register by way of correcting any false impres sion that Bro. Ingham's special might have produced. The report of the con vention in the Upper Des Moines of last week was evidently written with the pur pose in view of givipg circulation to the same impression, It is hardly necessary to say anything in defence of the Alliance or to go farther than simply to point out the disposition of the Upper Des Moines. Those who are familiar with the always half-hearted support given by that paper to the cause of prohibition will understand why H is now making an attempt to prejudice the temperance movement in this county. In regard to the State Temperance Alliance: It is a non-partisan organization for the primary object qf enforcing the law. All interested in the enforcement and retention of pur present laws upon the statute books need have no hesitancy in uniting with the Alliance. Prohibition is of course a question of political significance in Iowa. Considering the political phases of the question, the REPUBLICAN does not entertain a single friendly BeBtiment toward the tt»ird party movement i»i the supposed interests of the cause, and never can, until Republican party in, Iowa writes out a new history for itself in opposition to gOQd. order and decency. Whatever the proMljitiou party may bays to recommend U outside of Iowa, looking at the question of prohibition from the standpoint of expediency and with the best interests of prohibition in mind, the prohibition party movement in Iowa is impolitic and unwarranted by anything like a common, sense enthusiasm for the 9, The Republican putty of Iowa, Uio Republican pg&t aioftf - T F£ _* between prohibition and the saloon. For all that \ve have of prohibition the temperance people of Iowa are indebted to the Republican party; for all that they may expect to gain, the temperance people must look to the Republican party. To cut loose from the old party upon the eve of the impending struggle would be idiotic and suicidal. These are our sentiments in regard to the Prohibition party. As to the Temperance Alliance: It owes, allegiance to rjo political party, and al who are in favor of prohibition and the enforcement of law, whether Republicans, Democrats or third party Prohibitionists, should unite with the organ ization. A &REAT QUESTION. Spirit Lake Beacon: Occasionally a Republican paper is found exhorting the party in Iowa to abandon the prohibitory movement. It seems to us these editors are not gifted with ordinary shrewdness. However a man may regard the principles involved in the Iowa fight on the saloon, he ought to see that Iowa Republicans cannot at this juncture of affairs change front on this issue without inviting defeat and courting disaster. As a party of the people Iowa Republicans endorsed prohibition because of the clearly ex pressed will of the majority. As a mat ter of consistency it cannot abandon it until the people have reversed themselves on this issue, and as a matter of self- preservation it dare not do so. We may be beaten in the championship of this cause, but we will be demolished if the opposite course is taken. We have spoken from the standpoint of policy and consistency. For ourselves we are willing to say that no political result, past or promised' changes the opinion of the Beocon upon the principles involved. The saloon is a curse, an outrage upon society, a blight upon manhood, a crushing sorrow upon womanhood, and the Beacon will never consent to its legal recognition ia Iowa. Prohibition may not have filled the full measure of enthusiastic anticipation, but has so far benefltted the state as to cause the saloon to be hated a; it never was before. SEEN FROM A DISTANCE. The London Financial Times makes the following comment upon the tin plate situation in this country and drops a seasonable nint to the Welsh manufacturers: On the one band, we hear that millions of dollars have already been invested in plant, and that tin-plate making is about to boom in Yankeeland; on the other, we are told that not ^ sheet of tin plate lias been made there, or will be made there for years. Doubtless the truth lies somewhere between these two extremes. As ygl the efforts in tnis direction made in the States are perhaps chiefiy tentative, but few people doubt that sooner or later they wilj bja crowned with success. Raw materials, capital and technical skfli are all at hand, or can be easily obtained. Time alone is wasting to build up the industry, but it is to be feared that the Welsh manufaeturers are deceiving themselves if they imagine that a decade must elapse before any impression can be made on their business by rivals across the water. The Financial Times is not far o,ut of § way in its Climate of the real sit- atioE. We a^e probably a few days nearer makj^ ^mmercial tin-plate Ibi Times suj^pg however. Low Kates via C. & N. \V.
