At a recent session of the Cedar Rapids Presbytery held at Goldfield, the following resolution was adopted: Resplved, That we as a Presbytery recognize the crisis in the temperance situation, and we promise ourselves, and we encourage our people to pray, labor and vote for the maintenance of the present prohibitory law. The issue is pretty weU defined and understood. It is the home, the school and tbe : cfeurch—every influence for spbriety and, happiness—against the saloon.

Among; tbe other stipulations of the lease is one'that runs as follows. "The party of tbp second part agrees to properly prepare for and plant at least one-balf of tbe tillable land thereon to corn," ~" ' ity of a landlord tenant to put land in corn, when according to bis own figures tbe tenant bad to lose on tbe corn that be,was compelled to raise, 67 cents for every acre f to say nothing about the rent be had to pay bis landlord for tbe privilege of raising cpm and Dr. Bourne, the'Bemocrat-lHdependent; candidate dor the legislature, i« assuming i an attitude that would do credit to any political •contortionist that ever Developed an appetite i or office. The d«ctor has been known .as a lifelong prohibitionist and temperance man. There is uo doubt but that the Democrats remembered his record as a prohibitiomist and eadorsed his nominfition with the hope of holding the prohibition following of the party in line. But of course the S)emocratic.can- didate had to .endorse >the Democcatic platform, and the ;donto? was bro«ig))t before the public by tl>8 Democratic managers ina. letter of .aaceptftoce a«qd jotroduced in the grand unrivalled coo- ^tortion act of the «ampai@H. In retura foe the Democratic nomination the doe- tor was compelled to .«ign an unqualified endorsement of the Democratic plat- fown for the very plain purpose of holding the whiskey vote, notwithstanding the fact that prohibition is the conspicuous issue in the campaign th!s year, and tUat the Democratic platforrn .declares positively in favor of its repeal Now the question arises; what are the Doctors actual convictions on the pro- Think of th.e who would compel a "at least one-half" of hie hibitio.n question, tlje event of his and what will he do in election—wjiich is not losing money, the Governor How Jttucn rental doea extort from bis ten ants after compelling tbew to plant at leajt ol tbeU ta cow at a Ion s ol enumerated among the probabilities? Supposing for the sake of argument that the poctor should be elected, will he stand by his convictions and vote for the maintenance of prohibition, or will he stand' by his pledge to the Deraocratic party and vote for its repeal? Oae thing is clear in regard to Pr, Bourne, he wants office and he wants it most all- fired bad. It is a bad state of affairs when a candidate for a public trust will sell put bis independence and do vio lence to bis own honest cftunetions for the, bjribg of a parly A farmer from up the country, with brindle colored hair, came into the RE- FUBLICAN offloe one day. last week and after instructing the editor to "stop the paper" he proceeded to set forth his retisone for wishing to have the paper discontinued.' He first sang a tale of woe, -telling how poor and ipoverty stricken he was-and how he couldn't afford to pay for any newspaper. He laid the responsibility lor his poverty-struck condition at the >door of the monopoly Postering Republican party and -wished 4'or an era of sub'treasuries dealing out ;au unlimited quantity of two per cent loans. Our brindle haired friend is a type of the class of discontents who are taken up with the "plenty money" sohemes of the Ocala convention, the "flub Treasury" idiocy and kindred Allans for getting -something for nothing »and acquiring wealth without labor. If-our euto Treasury friends -would spend apportion of the time devoted to drearningout crazy financial policies, in industrious intelligent toft they -would see no need of sub-Treasuries aqd aa unlimited issue of paper to esable thorn to pay their debts in .cheap money. What have <thei farmers of Iowa got to-complain about anyway:? .Something of-course, but not everything. Every class have their just grievances but the Iowa farmer has as little cause for complaint as any body. If our briodle haired farmer' friend will <rv and forget tfce wild idea that a.nation can make itself rich by' starting the presses to stamping out un-; limited paper money; If he will forget the Ocala convention scheme to fill his ppckets with two per cent money, and tend more intelligently to the cultivation of the soil be will achieve the success that always comes to industrious toil and see less need for sub-treasuries and an unlimited issue of paper money. A CHALLENGE.

You may buy a pair of them, wear them for two months and for every suspender button that comes off we will pay you ten cents.
