The Faribault Register of Blue Earth, Miin., .wandered in upon our exchange table this week. The Register says something in. a little editorial about "the im- policy of .protection and prohibition in their demonstrated effect upon the welfare of the people of Iowa," and predicts a big defeat .for the Republican party for bringing the .people of Iowa to the verge of bankruptcy,by kicking the saloon out ot the state and supporting a policy that protects nearly every product of the Iowa farm from the ..peasant raised products of foreign countries. The editor of the Register had .better get some mileage and travel over Iowa with a view of writing up tho great .destitution of our people. The Register .advertises at the head of its editorial columns that.it is the only Democratic paper in Faribault county My Gracious! we should think oneDemocratic paper of that kind would be enough. After all, though, we can't expect the Democratic papers.outside of Iowa to do anything else but .lie about us when our homeDemocmtic papers have been exerting themselves to .traduce the state. pair of sentences. »6ur prohibitory law recognizes the necessity of liquor, and makes-provision for its sale." "But the prohibitionist says it is morally wrong to give legal recognition to the tariff in liquors in any way." $ the prohibitionist provides by law for the sale of liquors to be used in the arts and as medicines, what becomes of the Courier's candor? What folly i s the appeal for an unbiased judgment" based upon so palpable a misstatement of the views of the prohibitionist." The Courier is troubled over the consistency of sanctioning by law the sale of liquors for certain uses, and at the same time driving away breweries and distilleries from the state. The Courier must believe that the people of Iowa nek, or very much given to art. JUO( . wr import all the liquors needed for legitimate uses, than to setup fortresses of rebellion-aiders and abbettors of the saloon power, such as the distilleries and breweries have always been in Iowa Does tho .Courier see why we should "not manufacture what we consume, when such consumption is sanctioned by law? The Courier s immoral in the v » •Jwiiu, jj ui ' chase, and consumption of liquors The whole difficulty is in the immoderate use of them as beverages." Now the Courier must know that this "whole difficulty is precisely what the prohibitory law does fire very art.

We had no disposition to dispute tho fact with the Courier that a duty on wool existed or that the McKinley bill had increased the old tariff on the article. We allowed tho Courier, without any comment, to show the farmers of Kossuth County the excellent encouragement that had been offered them by a Republican congress to engage in the sheep industry. This brings the history of the clothingorgument up to last week when the Courier came out with the editorial we have reprinted above. Note the method of ratiocination by which the Courier arrives at the conclusion that its editor's estimate on cloth- canism is to build up, foster and velop the best forces there are in 'rather under than over the It is figures and not claptrap [a " TMtof i« «.,- —'„• ^ ing is tv mark." that counts." That is our opinionTlso^ Bro. Hinchon, and we would like to have you let up on the "claptrap" business and produce a few "figures" in support of your theory that clothing is so much more expensive now than it was formerly. All your talk Bro, Hinchon about a 190 per cent, tariff, and the duty on sugar operating as a tax is the veriesf'claptrap in view of the question before the House, for you have not proved that the tariff on wool operates that way.

They cannot fail to do good MORE "CLAP TRAP." Algona Courier: We published B. sis of the McKinley -schedule woon goods last week, and thought, perhws on woohn wouln conteporary would attack and discuss it. But he seems to have sense enough to let it al one. It is figures and .not claptran that counts. Taking such an average as the figures we published last week will fur ' concede that there is a tariff on wool, and we will further concede for the sake of argument that it amounts to 190 per cent, for we have not time to compute the average, and in fact it would be hard to compute the exact ' average anyway. The question before the house is whether the Courier told the truth or not when it made that ridiculous statement about the increased cost of clothing a family on account of the McKinley law. We charge that the Courier lied, and we have no milder terms in which to couch the charge for it was the deliberate lie of a dcmogogue sheet, published with a view of further deceiving the people, who were deceived by similar lies into voting the Democratic ticket last fall. on the goods nmeds about 190 per cent.

If the Courier intends to keep up this woolen goods controversy will it be so kind as to state the basis upon which it proposes to conduct the argument? If the question for discussion is to be whether there is a tariff on wpol or not, and if there is, what it amounts to, we have no time to talk. If on the other hand it is proposed to discuss the question as to what .the actual effect of the tariff on wool has been we will meet the Algona Courier half way. The Courier started out with the proposition that the McKinley tariff law had increased the cost of clothing a family of sbs children, the oldest being U years of age, at least $100. We met this We- meet with the assertion that it was an absolute and, deliberate falsehood, published with the end in view of befuddling the readers of the Courier who knew no better, and prejudicing the public against the new tariff law and ..the Republican party. The Courier's original proposit- plain language and one interpretation. The. New York Mail and Express pays the following compliment to Mi. Clarkson's sagacity and ability as an organizer. It is a compliment loan Iowa Republican worth reprinting in Iowa papers. The* arrival of. that superb organizer, Gen. James S. Clarkson, to-morrow on his return from a vacation abroad will be welcomed with especial enthusiasm bv the League clubs, here and elsewhere and by all earnest republicans. His pros- ence will call out many demonstrations of republican admiration, and his direc tion of the League Club movements wil GETTING INTO POLITICS. The Bancroft Register has sashayed around into politics and is running Harvey Ingham for the legislature. The Register talks as follows: The Register has no desire to boom any candidate for the office of Representative in this district but we can't help but bring out the names of good men when suggested. In the Democratic party we hear the names of C. L. Lund and James Taylor mentioned, and in the Kepubhcan ranks the names of Gardner Cowles, Geo. C. Call, C. C. Chubb, D Rice, and H. Ingham are mentioned' -Now any of the above would suit the writer but as we have something more to do with the latter party we will express our preference among the number. 1 he one whom we would name and rec- commend to the suffrage of the people is no more nor no less than the talented young journalist, lawyer and scholar —IJarvey Ingham. This is the first definite intimation the REPUBLICAN has had that Harvey is in the field for the nomination. The bond that binds editor's heart's,-together is a strong one. Ellis no doub't. experiences the force of fraternal feeling yanking on his heart strings and so is" led to bring out the name of a fellow journalist. Great are the fraternal bonds of journalism.
