anb Stoclt WILSON, Gdltor. [IdeaMrc solicited from our ftrtrcer finder*. Queries will be answered. Address -to the Editor, James Wilson, Ames, Iowa,] - • *B* ' ^'' . , The thriftiest western farmers have no bother about deciding whether they will hold, or sell grain. They bold nnd feed and buy more. Krother farmer, this department is for you. If It interests you won't you ask your neighbors to take this paper, if any are, not now subscribers? Seo how many ne^vfnfimes you can secure for this paper this/fall. __ Wtmt is proposed regarding fanners not putting all of their wheat, crop immediately on the market is what the best and, thriftiest farmers have always observer!. The movement will reach farther than it gets credit for and only deprive speculators of part of their profits. There are many Iowa dairy men who do not^raise their calves. We think they can profitably, as long as corn and oats and barley and rye aro shipped out of tho State. We think there is profit in feeding in Iowa as long as other people lind pi-otit in buying and feeding our grains. farmers who were borrowers at 10 percent, ten years ago, are now loaning money at 0 per cent, and are nervous about tho security, and wonder where the. pjice of this year's crop can be in- vestest, We wonder too. Those were farmers, however, who studied beef making, or dairying, or hog breeding, or horse raising or some one or more farm departments thoroughly. They never made money as fast as they make it now. What will bo done with accumulations is a. study. Consider the corn crop. It is immense, but it is not uniform. The pasture land com, or clover sod corn is far ahead of l.hat grown on tho usual oats or barley stubble. The State averages thirty-four bushels an acre, it is said. The crop should be classified. It would mn this way: On sod land an average of sixty bushels an acre. On manure?! land from the. .barnyard, fifty bushels an acre. On stubble laud, wet land, illy cultivated, and other sorts, thirty bushels. Some heavy lands will yield well for many yoars with outs or barley rotation, but tin- average rolling. prairie will not. Should farmers be permitted to sell " inipmv milk? Why not? All other people are permitted to sell adulterated food of all lands. We sell much food to southern people who insist on the right to uduUfrato ourlard with their cotton seed oil. The article sold should be true to. its name. About the only articles of food, we are certain about are: Potatoes, if we dig them; meat, if we kill it; and fruit, if we pick it. Adulteration is universal. 'Individual brands that are honest :ir,o milking their way. Farmers who make nice butter and maple syrup and honest cheese get good prices. Honesty is tho best policy. How pleasant it would be to stop work a while and visit Iowa. Not the Yosemito nor. Alaska, nor down south, nor back east, but just visit in Iowa. There is morn to see in Iowa of the rise of a great v-"vV* people than in studying any other people olT earth. The best educated people on earth, the most moral people to bo found, the most prosperous people, tho people that grow the finest horses, tho best, cattle and the most hogs, that have flu;.most cows and make the best butter, IhaUiiave tin; most pleasant homes, tho lovik'fit blue grass pastures, the largest p<;*nik'.k1s, the most colleges, churches, Sunday schools, noble men and liund- scsr," women, and manly boys and pretty •rirls. Say! If such a State were to bo iound anywhere in Africa or farther India. ./!• in the isles of the sea, wouldn't you <::> to see it, once in a lifetime'.' Well thi'ii. look about you! This is Iowa! A ivL'i-iit visit to Delaware county and the ili-;i'o\'ery x of a woolen mill that's been in successful operation ever since 1805, ::;••. s more hope of future manufacturing oi iiume grown material in Iowa than all ; lie i ite'.ii'ii-s we ever read. We. regard i >; :'..\ .li.urs a hero. His skill and cour- ai;i-'iuring all the years of depression bhue:s a path that should guide enterprise in this HnOffor generations to come. In early days water powers were hold in hi.iih estimation by the early settlers. In lati-r years they have been lightly esteemed. A littlo springy creek near Manchester has kept Mr. .Jones' wheels turning with profit while his teams gathered ur, th<» home-grown wool and the neighbors learned where they could get reliable woolen goods. He showed us cloth: good enough for any gentleman in Iowa to wear, and dress goods that hold the hearts of the»northern ladies. One loom worked on goods for a convent, another on! a striped pattern for the penitentiary "This/' said he, "is for the ' good folks that is for the bad folks." 'or -what prices. If the ptorttMsets t . year with another, held grain vMtll consumers needed It, they would get better average prices, and starve out aa clement that is useful to nobody. One people can hold safely enough, and save elovatof charges in tho city, but average prices nay not be much higher for a number of nonths. Iowa farmers find too little choice in he clothing line. It costs the average nan who works on a farm aa much noney to buy tho poor quality of ready uncle goods as would pay for the. best lome made woolens. Our people wear now cottons than .they would jf they wild get home made goods, We have lopes that the advent of the mutton and vi)ol sheep will change all this in time. e Xew York Sun in its attack OB Iowa armors said: "They look better in their vor.st clothes than they do in their best lothns," and there, is some truth In it. ["ho stalwart .voting Hawkeye is a flno pi-cimen of manhood in his shirt and rousers, but rig him up in shoddy,roady- nade goods, too wide and too short, and •on do transform him for tho worse. Tho •nt torn was shaped for a different na- ionality. If we only had the skill, ve have the capital and raw material, ind the demand for good clothes to set wenty thousand men and the profits of i corn crop at work. I hit, ah, the skill. A congress of lawyers in 18(52 gave tho nrmijrs and mechanics the most munifl- nt endowments for their childrens' ed- teation tho world ever saw. Something ike the interest on a capitalization of a nillion and a half of dollars is spent very year at Ames, teaching the sciences hat relate to agriculture and mechanics, This is the birthright of our boys. Con- TOSS wants to educate the young farmer nd mechanic to tho intellectual level of he educated in any profession. Farmers eed this education and the practical application of it now, in solving the prob- ems met in breeding up 'our domestic .nimals; in the economic feeding for neats and milk; in making the most of "nilk; in cultivation so that great yields hall bo regular; in the study of insect rionds and enemies; in transacting bus- ness with the outside world; in study of oils and plants by analysis, and the like, 'he profitable businesses in the West aro n connection with staple farm products. The city enterprise is reaching out to do he farm business. Let tho farmer's sou laim his birthright and rise to the oc- asion. WEEDY CORN FIELDS. It is a question what farmers should lo who have for any reason corn fields so icavily covered with weeds that the corn 3 a comparative failure. The wet weath- r in some localities at the time when the ultivators should have begun work is he principal cause. Whatever tho cause, ho fields present a study to the farmer, f the whole were turned under during he warm weather, so that the weeds vouhl decompose and tho seeds sproxit t would pay to take this method with ho worst cases. Tho field would be in ino shape for a crop next year, whereas, f no plowing is done until April next, trenuous exertions will bo necessary lo jlean them out that may not succeed. It s more serious than many suspect to have field go absolutely to weeds. Years ire- often required to clean it up. Where he corn is worth picking, it would be wise to get it as soon as it will do for >arly green feed and promptly plow everything down. It will bo soon enough to have decomposition set in, and too lato r a new crop of weeds to mature. Winder rye sroniid be sown for fall, winter and spring pasturing, and the iield plowed igain by tho 1st of May. Heroic steps should bo taken to redeem the evils evident at present. i$ KMui-aere land It will not pay to havo •o to weeds. sell to eastern dftitytnan, . sell thtottgli the feed yard rathe* than to feeders. S* cure everything snugly, and plan to sell in condensed, valuable shape, r The tendency of dairy control in Cola- ware county is by the farmers themselves .hrough co-operative associations. The farmers are managing well and get Elgin prices and better in New York. The growth of the science of butter making, cheaply, on a largo scalo.has been so rap,d that antiquated buildings are still In use that can not yet be abandoned. Many of them do a large business on one loor, using steam power, where ' 'grav- ty" would do the work. Tho spirit of mprovement sie/.es upon everything to save work and timo so promptly that >ach remodelling relegates all tho old- 'ashioned methods behind. Wo hear of seventeen, eighteen and more cents per pound for butter. Tho extensive crcam- in Manchester is managed by tho farmers themselves. We note an improvement In the farmer that sees to the marketing of his own product, a position towa farmers are rapidly rising to. The Manchester farmers raise their calves on tho skim milk, which no doubt accounts 'or the preference given to butter rather rhan cheese making. Delaware is a very rich county of land and the calf is an im- jortant factor in turning tho grasses and grains into high selling products. Wo are not yet able to account for tho neg- ect of choose making in the fall after the calves and pigs havo boen helped toward weaning timo. No doubt the butter pays best, but our butter makers' ihould consider the possibilities in sheese. If as much pains wcro taken with cheese as butter, temperature con- TOlled as well and the product made full cream and ripened, wo have no hes- tation in saying that Iowa cheese so made would sell as well abroad as the foreign make. The more wo study tho lairy interests of the West the moro wo icttle down to tho conclusion that improvement in methods and machinery las applied almost exclusively to butter, ;o the total neglect of cheese. We find a spirit of inquiry among the Linn and Delaware county farmers in these re- jards. The Wisconsin brother, with his skimmer and his 3 per cent. State law, las had tho cheese reputation of the West in his keeping, and a mess he has made of it. It is risky for one man to advise another about his business. We are not so postive about famine prices for grains. The- prices will, we believe, be gooct The}' are now. Were it not for the scarcity in Europe our markets would be much lower. Our oats would be seventeen cents at the stations and wheat would sell at haif^a cloBar. Much has been anticipated already. Jtmustbekeptin mi»d that Uie consumers abroad differ . vustly from consumers here. If they have a scajwity, that does not argue that they will towy^ to mafce good the bhoutage. Th'oy partly rcsoal to cheaper foods and P*rtiy go hungry. It is for the owners *f fffito to Juifci bpvtaagto hoM nad OlMl GilK.VT CKOl'. The abundance of Iowa crops will givo line opportunities to make headway, financially. The Stato will sell immensely from this crop, and it is a nice question to consider what will be done with the money. Heretofore-our accumulations from crops have paid up mortgages, made improvements on tho farms, built up villages and towns and have been taken away to the West and South for speculative purposes. We also have sent much capital to surrounding large cities with merchants who became rich among us and wanted larger fields for their operations. Now, however, there is fair prospect of Iowa made money being put to use in the State. The theory of old settlers has been that as capital accumulated, it would build up our towns, and as our towns grew they would make markets at home for ftrm products. This has been realized in a measure, but not to/*ncttt our full expectations. Since the railway law has been in operation, giving assurance to all of fair rates, we see man- ufaeturing industries starting up all over ihe Sfrate. Surplus money will find use in these directions. The wooden business hou.se will give place to the brick block. Furin dwellings will be improved, barns built and a new line of fences gradually be added to the farm that will be better suited to hogs, sheep aud horses than the barb'wire. Education will have attention and more boys and girls will go to college and high school. Such a crop as is now maturing in Iowa has great power for good or evil. Luckily most of our people use money in wise directions. More profits will come to Iowa people from this crop than is made in half a life time in eastern or southern States. We hope oor farmers who are working hard to save this, tho finest crop alWaround ever grown in (he State, Drill use all efforts to make all tlv«re is in it Do as the best farmers Ofe, g«U THE HABVEST HOME. We have been present at several harvest homes lately and have received great ncouragement as regards the steady growth of intelligence among our farm- ng population. The power of organi'/a- tion is felt wherever one goes. Politics s forbidden entirely. The farmers come ;ogethor with their families to spend a day in gratitude to God for His goodness ;hrough the season, and to discuss, in a committee of the whole as it were, the state of the country. Tho Stato and the Nation are safer after these meetings. Patriotism, devotion, relaxation and bus- .ness aro tho prominent features of these occasions. Home talent is called upon to entertain in music and oratory. If speakers from the farm can be had they aro preferred,but no spirit of clannishness animates tho farmers. The tribe of wild agitators get no countenance, but questions uppermost in the industrial minds are discussed. The better class of Iowa farmers is found in greater numbers than formerly, showing that tho farmers' movement has tho endorsement of the conservative. There is a growing determination among farmers to get all tho market will afford for their products. This will result in moro equal distribution of the proceeds of Iowa crops. It will be far reaching in unsuspected directions. Less cheap grains will be shipped out of tho State to feed stock for people further East. It is only a question of a short time until Iowa will close her granaries against foreign feeders and speculators. The class of men on Iowa farms that live by grain raising and selling is growing less, rapidly. There is a keen inquiry into the possibilities of proili from farm products. Whether it suits speculators or not, the CT,;JW :>!' the Slat > will not be dumped upon the market, as soon as they aro gathere,!. i,.\va rurmers read, and they are becoiniir; 1-iii.iivly con versunt with the comlilk-n of the crop:-; "i the world. Our people are bi-jomins well olf. The older settlers have their homes clear of debt, and ninny of them have money to lend. This partially accounts for the wave of prosperity that is sweeping over the State. We hear no complaint of the railways. The village shippers HIV conscious of reasonable rates us the cily. The result of the. secure IVvling is eviO.eui in the rapid growth of Iowa villages. Vi'u find little factories springing up all over the State, making thinys that have heretofore come from the Kwsl. The present great crop of •'Iowa will havo a marked influence on tho future prosperity of the State. Land will still further appreciate. It is a safe investment and the crops of 1891 will make good interest returns. Not a word is heard among the farmers of investing in anything but home enterprises. The corn has caught up the loss in growth occasioned by the cold, fully, and will ripen. While there aro poor patches from poor management or on lands too wet for corn, on the whole this will be the greatest corn crop our people ever gathered. The Iowa farmers and their wives have a contented look this fall, that is evidence of satisfaction with tha world and mankind. One has to travel much to keep informed concerning ttie growth of even one of our and has to observe carefully to Ifteep with m«otftl «od moi«i .Adopted at Cedft? Rapid* July i, 1891 The Republican party oMowa, in contention assembled, gives renewed expres sion of devotion to the ^principles of the national Republican party, and .declares acceptance of those principles to be the bond of union with the Republican party of Iowa, We commend the patriotic, wise, and courageous administration of Presrdeftt Harrison, We commend the Republican part? In .the last congress for its redemption of pledges made to the people as to a revision of the tariff In the interest of home industry, and for its work in behalf of liberal provision for pensions for the old soldiers, in accordance with the pledges *if the nation. ' We approve the coinage act, by which the entire product of the silver mines of the United States is added to the currency of the people, and out of which experiment may come a wise adjustment of financial questions liberal towards west- irn interests. Wo commend most heartily the policy that has been inaugurated looking to reciprocal trade relations with other"peoples of the American continent, and tho administrative efforts now making for the enlargement of foreign markets for American beef and pork. We assert that the Republican party stands of record in every state of this Union in favor of elections based upon the freedom of the indivirtual conscience of the citizen, and that the Republican party may be trusted in Iowa or in any state, to promote any plan of reform, Australian or other, calculated to extend this liberty and to further protect the purity of the ballot. While inviting to our shores the worthy poor and oppressed of all nations, we earnestly commend laws that protect our country and our people against the influx of the vicious aud criminal classes J nf foreign nations and the importation of laborers under contract to compete with our citizens; and earnestly approve the rigid enforcement ot these laws nud of such further legislation as may be necessary. We favor such legislation as will impose upon all classes of property, corporate and individual, equally the burdens of taxation. We favor the passage of the Conger iard bill; state legislation tending to promote farmers' institutes and enlarging the powers of the dairy commissioner. We regard the world's Columbian exposition as an important event in the world's history, and we are in hearty sympathy with every effort to make it a success; »nd in the friendly rivalry of states we should make a creditable exhibit of Iowa's products. And we favor a liberal appropriation by the next general assembly for this purpose, "that our prosperity " and greatness may be fully exemplified." We take pride iu the record of this state; we recognize that its growth and S ower, its prosperity and its good name, ave been the fruits of its industrial people, and we believe in such policies, state and national, as will promote justice and wider opportunity among these classes. To their support, in the future as iu the past, we pledge our most intelligent judgment and most sincere endeavor. We point to the record of the state under Republican administration for justification in the declaration that we favor economy and honesty in the administration of public affairs: to that record, also, for judgment that the Republican party has kept faith with the people in the obligations of the past, and upon that record the liepwblicaii party invites continued support and confidence. We have no apologies to offer to the people, nor to the Democratic party, for the Republican record on the conspicuous issue in the state campaign this year. ''In the interests of true temperance," and under the biws of Iowa, enacted by the representatives of its sovereign people, the saloou was made an outlaw in this state, we charge that the outlaw has had the patronage, counsel and protection of the Democratic party; that the Democratic party, as it has won power, has nullified the law, defied the authority of the statn wad the expressed will of the people, and that now appeal is made to the electors of the whole state for approval of the lawless work. We recognize that the issue is law against defiance of law, subordination against insubordination—thestateof Iowa against the Democratic party. We recognize that the issue is between "the interests of true temperance" aud the freedom and rule of indiscriminate traffic. We renew our allegiance to the people of Iowa, and submit to them the determination of the issue, recognizing that the control of the next legislature by the Democratic party means state-wide license, and that the control of the next legislature by tho Republican party means a continuance of opposition to the behests of the saloon power, through the maintenance and en-- forcement ol the law. We denounce the Democratic party of Iowa as insincere in its dealings with the saloon issue. We charge that party with service to the saloou and purpose to strengthen its grasp upon fche homes and poM'Jc'.i i;f thu statu. We cite in proof of t'his its surrender this year of the local option feature of the plank of 1889, under which last year pretense of indorsement l>y the state was made, aud to which pledge was given in petition for legislative authority. We charge that this abandonment of local option is the forerunner of further premeditated betrayal, aud that trust in the Democratic party will end in complete breaking down of the temperance legislation of the state, and a complete turning over of the state, in every township thereof, to tho pollution and fester of tho saloon, against whatever protest of communities now free. We protest against the re-election of Horace Boies to tke governorship of Iowa. We charge that in lus unwise and ambitious zeal to cultivate the favor of alleged new allies in the northwest," and upon that strength to commend himself to the favoring graces of Grover Cleveland, that he did most outrageously misrepresent the honest, industrious, frugal and prosperous people of Iowa iu his Reform club banquet speech iu the city of New York on the 2Sd of December last. We denounce as purposely misleading the alleged statistics with which the governor assumed lo sustain the indictment against the state which had diguilied his uarne. We denounce the Ottumwa platform of this year as framed with deliberate purpose to mislead and deceive, wherein sym- Eatliy is expressed whore none is felt: where- 3 help ia proposed whoro none is rendered: wuorein purposes aro avowed which are not entertained. In support of this indictment wo point to tho pretended friendship for the soldiers, and to the arraignment at tho same time of the Republican party for having appropriated money for the- payment of pensions; to the "free silver" piank. intended to deceive tae supporters of "free and unlimited coinage ot silver;" to the plank assuming to •'affirm the doctrine of control and regulation of railroads." a policy implanted upon tha state under the administration of the last Republican governor, against the opposition, secret and open, of Uie Democratic party, extending to an alliance with corporate power iu the first election of railroad comimssianars under the laws in IS88. We denounce the Democratic party of Iowa for mieropresentatioui in its platform and before the people, of the McKinley bill, charging tUat it seeks to mislead the people through ra- iteration of untruths as to tfee effect of tnat bill aud in all ways to vrorfc upon the pre iudices of tho uninformed. • Woarraism the Democratic party for ppposi; tionto ballot reform in the »outh. while yoi waking pretaiwo o* ballot reform in Iowa.
