'The candidate who tries to run upon itoO'many platforms is trayeling swiftly towards that Bourne from whence no Apolitical pilgrim will return. It is now less than two weeks until the <day of election. The -farmers of Iowa •have-but a short time left in which to decide whether they wish <to be disfranchised or not in the interests of the bum •elements of the cities aad 'towns. That is .the Question before the farmers of Iowa in a nut shell. If prohibition is repealed and the iplan for regulating the saloon proposed'by the democrats'^adopted the saloon may be saddled upen the entire state at the instance of its cities and towns. If the farmers of the state don't want that 'kind of local •option they ehouM not -vote the democratic ticket. Courier: Candidate Wheeler stopped in Algona between trains last iBfoiday and received his friends at th« 'Tennant House. Quite .a number called on him and had a pleasant, social chat. We had a very pleasant chat with Mr. Wiieeler, ourself, and were favorably impressed with him. If elected he will make a common sense Governor, but be can never take any public part in any occasion that may occur where the Governor may be required to appear. That is the best word for Wheeler we • have yet seen in & democratic paper. * Hinchon's only objection to Mr. Wheeler .-' aow seems to be "that he can never take any public part in any occasion that may occur where the Governor may be required to appear," That is narrowing the democratic objections to Wheeler down to a yery fine point. How does the Courier know tost Mr. Wheeler is incapable of waking a speech? The 'Courier doesn't fc&q w it, As president of the State Agricultural Society Mr. Wheeler made numerous piibjip addresses that never reflected discredit H p 0n hi 8 ability S3 a public speaker. Became Mr. Wheeler has seen fit to make np jujWjc speeches Jn this campaign and ha? wftwed steadfastly to depart from tb§ rirfg jjj any in- .Sjajice, it does not necessary follow, as Last week we told how a Southern Alliance sub treasury fanatic came into the RFPUUUCAN office and advocated the cause of the Southern Alliance with all its vagaries. Wo made some remarks editorially in relation to the circumstance which were promptly seized upon by the Courier and interpreted as applying to every organization which passes tinder the title of the Farmers' Alliance. This was an extremely false interpretation of what the REPUBLICAN said, and was most decidedly unwarranted by anything'that the editorial might have suggested. The REPUBLICAN is au advocate of the Farmer's Alliance, in so far as the Alliance is disposed to keep within its proper territory and exercise its proper functions as an organization to advance the best interests of the farmers. When the Alliance or any similar organization gets into politics it is transgressing the bounds of its proper sphere, The Iowa Alliance is a strictly non-partisan organization and has accomplished much good for the farmers of the state. The Southern Alliance is nn entirely different kind of an institution It is a secret oath bound organization, a great political machine which is one day sure to go to pieces with the incubus of its own luuwieldiness and its crazy theories of political economy.The farmers of Iowa have not an interest thatcan be advanced by the Southern Alliance and they seem to -understand it. An attempt was recently made to fasten .the Southern Alliance upon the farmers of -this state, through a coalition with the Iowa Alliance. The attempt most signally failed, and the Iowa Farmers" Alliance is to be 'congratulated. If the sentiment of the Iowa Alliance may be arrived at from the attitude of its leading men there is very little friendliness for th<! Southern Alliance and its plans to revolutionize the ^financial policies of the country. Suchnnen as "Tama Jim" Wilson, the editor of the Iowa Homestead, and others that might be mentioned who are representative of the intelligent farmers of the state, are openly opposed to the-Southern Alliance and regard the sub treasury plan and its companion schemes for -making the farmers rich by the unlimited manufacture of money as the' 'wildest of all •financial lunacies. The Southern Alliance ihns succeeded in'establishing itself at scattered points in Iowa. Its following is made up of the inevitable discontents and soreheads who -never cut a very important part in the politics of the country. The representative farmers of the state are not with it. Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report. WHY THE HERALD DID IT. The uncalled for discourtesy of the iCarroll Herald inits slap at the EK- several weeks ago, is mentioned by the Lohrville Enterprise in the following item: r^ 116 *, 0 "?? 11 Herald is trying to belittle the Algona REPUBLICAN because tlie .Republican editor called the especial attention of the fraternity to the tact:that it has adopted the "all home pwnt" plan. The Herald does not use real good sense in its malicious criticisms and the secret-of the attack lies in the fact that its opponent, the.Car- roli,-Sentinel, one of the ablest edited and .best printed papers in Iowa, is also all home print." The Herald uses "ready.prints," and ie.simply trying to administer a slap to the Sentinel through the BasrtJmacAN. For one we confess a little feeling of envy for "all .home print" papers because of some .of the advantages ,they enjoy. The diact that the Enterprise uses patent insidcs is wortby oJ° notice iii connection with its honest words about "all home (print" papers. Many paper* like the Enterprise would be glad t» discard patent insides if t&ey found it practicable to do so. visions are in accordance with a wise policy of protection, hut there is not a section or line in the entire bill that will open a market for another bushel of wheat nor another pound of pork." The letter in which this paragraph occurs was written to Senator Frye, July 11, 1890, and the McKinley bill did not become a law until October 1, nearly three months thereafter. In my letter to benator Frye, I objected to. the bill because it did not contain the reciprocity clause, which would provide a market for wheat, pork and other products of the farm and for various fabrics. Before the bill was finally passed the reciprocity clause was inserted and a large addition was made to the free list. It will therefore be seen, from what I said in my letter, that the objection which I made to the McKinley bill was entirely removed before the bill became a law. Let me further say that the reciprocity clause has given an ample market for many barrels of flour and many pounds of pork. Brazil, some months since, entered into a treaty by which many American articles are admitted free. Flour is made free and pork admitted at a nominal duty. Cuba and Porto Rico have reduced the duty on flour from $5.80 a barrel to $1, whitjh gives us the market, besides a large number of other articles. Other treaties for reciprocity are in progress. Germany, without negotiating aformal treaty, has removed the prohibition 'on pork, and our government, in consideration thereof, has left her sugar on the free list. This opens to us an entirelv new market, and $15,000.000 to $20,000,000 of American pork will be consumed per annum where not a pound had been taken for ten years. The reciprocity provision is proving very successful, -especially in farm products and more particularly in the case of the two articles mentioned in the para graph quoted—flour and pork. I am not, therefore, an opponent of the McKinley bill, as the Democratic papers are constantly alleging. 'On the contrary, I have cordially supported it ever since it was perfected by the insertion of the reciprocity clause. Very respectfully yours, JAMES G. BI/AINE. A STATEMENT FROM HIRAM C. WHEELER. From the OclebokU Chronicle. An Alleged interview with Phil Schaller (which has been -denounced by him as a forgery,) has boon published in nearly every Democratic.paper in Iowa. In thie interview Mr. Schaller is quoted as saying, that Hon. H. C. -Wheeler had defrauded Schallea- of certain taxes due the latter when ho was treasurer of. this county.' He is also represented as accusing Mr.' Wheeler of failing to support Senator; Hutchiaeou when the latter was Republi-i can candidate for .governor two years' ago, ) Every man in Sac county knows thatj there is no truth in the tax story. The Chronicle jpublished>.the facts in the case nearly thsee .months ago, and furnished convinciag ,proof that there was no foundation for .the slander published Democratic press.

The democratic papers havo told many stories about Mr. Elaine's Unfriendliness to the McKiuley bill. Nearly erery democratic paper in the United States has quoted and kept standing for au indefinite period, an extract from a letter written by Mr. Elaine to Senator Frye, ia support of the theory that the Secretary of State was a bitter enemy of the bill. At the request of an Ohio editor, Mr, Elaine speaks on the subject in the letter below. It would be a nice thing for the democratic papers to print Jthis letter and keep it -standing, by way of correcting any false impression that they may have succeeded in creating. TV John AUGUSTA, Maine, October^. Hopley, Esq., Editor Journal, Daio: Bucyrus, 'QL-. My pear Sir-T-You inform me that a Democratic paper in your town and many Democratic papers throughout Ohio keep the following paragraph standing in type: the McKiuley bill thfit w°iS "open^the market for another bushel of wheat or another barrel of pork." *~ James G. to Senator Frye, July U, 1890., sentence | 8 garblsd a&4 taken, Us proper connection. It creates a WbatldidBayfefte Ur^#&iEifc>ii; v ^3rTT ,, Jl ..w anfrr >. - c, , Slip *'9-Js*.s J Mr. Wheeler's .active support of Senator Hutchittson is aiiaatter of record He published an .address vouching for Hutchinson'-s .-standing -on the railroad question, was frequently consulted by the candidate, and did everything in hie power to bring .about Sutchiuson's election. The 1-igint vote in Mr. Wheeler's home was due to A split OB the Republican county ticket, «u indqpendent ticket -being in the field. To settle tia-e matter we append a statement written aed signed by Mr. Wheeler, which w« trust wiill be given general circulation toy the Republican pjness. It is a conclusive xefutation of the charges made in the faked interview wkii Schaller: ODEBOLT. Iowa, Oct. 12,1891. Editor Chronicle:—I enclose Mr. Schaller's denial of the Chicago Herald inter- \iiew, which is as follows: Whereas the Chicago Herald has published an alleged interview between myself and a representative of the Chicago Herald, I hereby certify that no such conversation was ever held between myself and said representative at Sioux City or any other place. PHIL SQHALLEB. This statement from Mr. Schaller is timely, as the statements in the alleged interview are utterly false. I have paid every dollar of tax that has been assessed against my property in Sac county and elsewhere. As to the taxes that were paid at the Bank of Odebolt, I paid $500 A u mint C}O •! OOO . ff*Kf\A Qj-vn.4-sv.wK nu -4t*t -4 CtClf* , August 38, 1883; $500 September 17, 1883, and $385 October 20, 1883, and have the banker's endorsement on the receipts to correspond with the above dates. The bank failed November 3. 4s to the other statements, 1 will simply say that I have never worked against any Republican nominee; and 1 did more work ft? Senator Hutcuinson than (ever did for a gubernatorial candidate. I would not allude to this matter did I not understand that the alleged interview has been sent to every Democratic paper THE TWO ALLIANCES. From "the Sioux city Journal. The Iowa Farmers' Alliance took; wise action at its state convention at Des Moines when it refused to coalesce with the Southern Alliance, as it is commonly called, or the National Farmers' Alliance and Industrial Union. There was no legitimate reason in favor of but every reason against such a coalition. It is easy to join the Iowa Farmers' Alliance. There nre no rivers to cross. If any farmer desires to join it, all he has to do is to join it. The Iowa Alliance is a broad gauged, liberal organization. Its doors are wide open and its floor is free to nil farmers of all political parties on an exact equality, and no political boss or ring of office seekers, agitators and schemers can use it for their ends. Why should the Iowa Alliance be asked to coalesce with the Southern. Alliance? What is the Southern Alliance doing here in Iowa, anyhow? What has been its purpose except to destroy and supplant the Iowa Alliance? Ard why was it brought into the state except to be the partisan political machine which the Iowa Alliance refuses to be? There is in Iowa, as in all other states, an element which is composed of sore headed politicians, professional agitators, professional lovers of 'farmers, cranks and their dupes, which is forever eagerly trying to seize upon any organization of farmers which may be started, for the purpose of making cut of it a personal or partisan machine. The demagogues attempted to repeat their old tactics in the Iowa Alliance. They failed upon the whole, altj^m^h in some localities they achieved some success by treachery. The constitution of the Iowa Alliance required it to be ".HOII partisan," and it was upheld in spite of the demagogues and conspirators. It was then that the demagogues and conspirators brought the Southern Alliance into the state, and since then the men who join .farmers' organizations for personal purposes have been trying to turn over as many as possible of the local alliances to the Southern Alliance, and they have succeeded in turning over a good many. And yet when the two alliance organizations met in Des Moines the Southern Alliance proposed a coali • ' tion with the Iowa Alliance on the basis •of "the secret work" of the former. For the Iowa Alliance to accept this proposition would have been simply sui- •cidal. It would have invited back into ats membership *he disturbing element •which has been warring against the Iowa Alliance and whioh is bent on its virtual by the destructiou - It would have brought back to.its ranks a crowd that has no use for any alliance organization except to make it .a partisan machine of the so called people's party. It would have brought <oma period of turmoil and strife which would probably have destroyed it ae an instrument for accomplishing good re- aults-for the farmers. The Iowa Alliance bos .the good sense to^escape these evils. The question is finally settled. TJie two alliances go their separate ways. The Southern Alliance will be the tool of demagogues and schemers. The Iowa Alliance will be the non-partisan agency of Iowa (farmers of all parties. ADMITS THAT ItfE WAS WORKED FOR A SUCKER. From the Britt Tribune. Fay Bowker was,in town Saturday. We talked the matter of the coavention over with him and are satisfied that he was imposed on by the Kossuth county democracy feigning to act as tae Kossuth alliance. Fay voted for Dr. Bourne, be lieving it to be for his interest as an alliance man this w*<8 of course all right. But as to the democratic scheme. Fay says he was ignorant until the endorsement was made. That he transcended the bounds of his jurisdiction, he admits, but says he was also drawn into that unthinkingly. As be has very manfully confessed his error, we feel less like cea sunnghim than we did, as fortunately the scheme has fallen flat and will do no iu state with instructions to puMsb.
