The tchief executive was passing through fReinbeck recent!}', and as the train was I stopping at the depot, the governor, ob serving a man loading some beer into a wagon, remarked to a bystander on the Platform that prohibition didn't seem to ^prohibit there. Not knowing who the governor was, the fellow addressed said that the man with the beer had just been pardoned out by Iowa's present fool Governor, and it wasn't any wonder people lad hard work to enforce the law! It is paid the car window lowered with a bang jjhat was heard the entire length of train, and Horace didn't say another tord until he reached Waterloo, The better people of Louisiana are rising to throttle the lottery monster that lias so long over ridden law and authority ind dominated legislatures in that state. The people of Louisiana independent of political issues and old time affiliations ire already opening the anti lottery campaign, although it is a full seven months mtil the time when the election is to be leld thai will settle the issue for the next luarter of a century. Public sentiment is rising to settle the lottery question in Louisiana as it rose to settle prohibition in Iowa a few years ago. No institution can stand up and look public sentiment la the eye, and sentiment to-day in Iowa is not on the side of the saloon. SOME DEMOCRATIC TESTIMONY AGAINST BLUNDER BOIES. Iowa City Citizen: Senator 0. E. Whiting is a Democrat of unimpeachable parly fidelity and of much longer landing tnau Boies. He was a Democratic candidate in 1887. He has a very large !arm and is a practical man. He raises iorn and he hires men to raise it for f lim on his land and pays them IS^cents jper bushel for the corn . raised. In this ^vay the men who do the labor receive a fair compensation for their labor in producing the crop, and Mr. Whiting receives Eke difference of 12J£ cents per bushel and the market value of corn for the use of the land. Mr. Whiting can get all tfce men be needs to raise corn on these terms and no one eversusp|pts that he has dealt with, bis employer*^ toat be was himself losing money on the business. Every one who wjjl stop tothiak for a moment can arrive at no other conclusion than that Governor Boies has » ^d purpose to keep up the demogo§u,es' caJumity story, irrespective of the trujto and the good of the state. Tbe self respect of the 9 of Iowa demands that be be relegated to private life, ns hfi Sftreiy will be ' November. the i TH M DOUGHPACJS. jt Sioux City Joarnal: Toe jfiov- Boies made at Keokuk, outrages perpetrated by tic party on the black race, Utter subserviency of the n to the behests of democracy, It ia bad enough waeo the old the ioUd back, Bourbon democrats of the Ham- Richardson stripe, democrats whose record goes back to copperhead days, justify the overthrow of the elective fran chise, the subversion of the fundamental principle of free government. But in the light of their history, and of the history of the democratic party in the north, nothing else is to bo expected. But Gov. Boies has always been a re publican. He has always stood in op position to everything presented by Ham-Richardson democratic mossback Ism. He opposed Ham-Richardson mossbackism during the war; he Stood for republicanism during.the reconstruc tion period; he was a republican on the issue of the constitutional amendments to protect the negro race and all related legislation; he was a republican when Gen. Grant was trying to prevent the nullification of those measures. He was an Iowa rephblican all this time, and Iowa republicanism was regarded and denounced by the solid south democracy as the most radical in the union. When a man of long republican record like Gov. Boies, after a short period of democratic affiliation on a local issue, suddenly somersaults to more ultra solid southism than even that of an ordi nary northern dough-face, it simply shows how overwhelming is the domi : nance of the solid south in the dorrio cratic party as a national organization. It shows how the tail is wagged by thi dog. The democratic party never had the sources of its strength in the north, least of all in the west. The west has been republican simply in its efforts to defend itself against the south. The proper name of western defense against hostile south- ism is republicanism. Therefore, even an Iowa republican when he becomes a democrat, if he is a candidate for the national honors of the democratic party, feels that he must pay court to the authority which controls that party—to the solid south. Indeed he feels all the more impelled "to repent," as Roger Q. Mills puts it in his Iowa speeches/ and to ask the forgiveness of the solid south, for the very reason that he has been an Iowa republican. This is just .the way Gov. Boies feels. WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT IT. Our .i'i:oi><»se«l..- i ciiajiiiije to aii aU ,"Kojme irriut" Paper.. Webster City Daily'Herald: , J. W. Hays, on assuming control of the Algona REPUBLICAN, makes an announcement that gives further evidence that he is thoroughly qualified to 'the very best standard of Iowa journalism.. He has decided to print the entire paper'at home, doing away with the "patent-insides" that have become such a "chestnut"'in country papers as to never be read. These great blanket sheets filled with trashy stories and cheap literature are losing .their grip among' the intelligent reading public and the patent insides are being discarded by editors who are shrewd enough to realize the fact. Mr, Hays will have control of his entire paper and thus be enabled to give his patrons, (although at an inpreas- ed cost to himself,) a class of matter that no publisher using "patent insides" can hope to equal. The desire to improve the paper will no doubt be appreciated iy the citizens of one of the best towns in the best state in the Unipn, and the increased •- patronage should more than pay the live. editor for the additional expense incurred. Goldfield Chronicle: The Algona REPUBLICAN is going through a series of changes. J. W. Hays, *for the past year editor of that paper, has lately bought a quarter interest in the office and rented the rest, and he now proposes to make it an all home-print paper. WHITTIEIPS TItIB VTE.

Thejpwa democrats, led by Governor Boies, arej conducting'a queer kind of campaign. Apparently, it is their idea that they will i win votes by $ennuncing tbeir; ata^e,, its resources at»4 'its opportunities.' gpies i himself struck the keynote of this tune by declaring during his recent visit in New fork City tUat'*for tlw last ten years the 'armersof Jowa liay,e cultivated their fields at a loss," and that "the state was covered thick with mortgages" a reaesujr- ng statement, truly, to those whjj might be thinking ol making Iowa their h^nxe or be scene of their investments. Tbe mo* of this cruel slander upon the ounity that bad lifted Mr. Boies into 10« distinction by making him their chief was, of courts, to iujure t n e republican policy of protection. Mr. Boies w&8 simply repeating the old, old drivel about protection increasing the coat of everything, and was proving his charge to the minds of his New York hearers by telling them that Iowa was the h6me qf paupers, the ' land of industrial gloom, where money hopelessly sought f of safe investment and labor was thrown a\fay— "all on account of" the tariff. It is probable that Mr.Boies didnot think about the chicken he had hatched here going h^rne to roost. He was talking to New Yorkers, not to lowans. For partisan political effect he was giving testimony as the governor of a great agricultural state concerning the effect of the tariff upon agriculture. He was talking to those who presumably knew nothing of the facts, and he didn't calculate how his crazy nonsense would sound in the ears of those who did know and had votes in the coming election. He thought he was far enough from home to be safe in slandering his people if only he could gain a political end at their expense. His words, however, traveled swiftly back to Iowa and created, naturally, the profoundest indignation. The people who, according to Boies, for! ten years had been galloping into bankruptcy and were now overwhelmed with mortgages, knew, as a matter of fact, that their thirty-five years of republican self-government had left them with scarcely a dollar of state indebtedness and with a good balance in the bank They knew that during the ten years mentioned by Boies their population had increased from 1,624,615 to 1,911.896, or at the rate of 17.64 per cent, and that their state and county indebtedness taken together had decreased per capita from the trivial sum of $2.18 to the still more trivial sum of $1.91, leaving them as to public indebtedness second in honor rank among the forty-four states of the union! They k»ew that the mortgages with which their governor, the man of all men who should have defended their financial station, 'had said the whole state was "covered," in point of fact covered only 9 13 per cent of their total acreage, and represented a form of debt that argued growing prosperity instead of adversity, a debt contracted for land, stock, machinery and improvements, all of which were working at a profit, They knew that they were growing bne- sevehth of all "the corn and one-twelf tii •.of "ail •' the" wheat grown ; in -this entire country and were using less than a third of their available land to do, it in. 'They knew, in a word, that despite short crops in the last two years, there was no political division on the earth's surface whose farmers as a whole were better off than that described as Iowa. The Republicans, whose government had- accomplished these results, thought logically that the best answer to make to Governor Boies' hurtful attack upon the state would be the nomination of a representative farmer who would stand out as an illustration of the men who were cultivating Iowa fields "ata-loss." Accordingly they nominated Mr. Hiram C. Wheeler, and the Democrats arc in a laughable dilemma. Mr. Wheeler is shown to be worth about $800,000, made out of Iowa's fruitful soil, and a portion of the Democratic press is attacking him as an aristocrat and a bloated capitalist. But it is also shown that he owes about §60,000 on a mortgage, and the other half of the Democracy are denouncing him as a bankrupt and citing him in proof of the governor's charge that farming in. Iowa is a failure. This is a ludicrous' situation, and the Democrats must get out of it as best they can.. So far as Mr. Wheeler is concerned,, he is willing to give them all the votes they cap obtain, whether in an attempt to show that farming in Iowa is a bad business because it produces millionaires, or that Iowa is a delusion to homeseekers and a snare to capital.
