The people of Iowa are opposed to the idea of having a farmer for governor. The best explanation of the way it happened is, that a lot of fool republicans voted the democratic ticket. There has been large immigration into Iowa within the past ten years and it is impossible to say how much the political complexion of the state has been altered on account of it. The Keokuk Gate City is of the opinion that the republican party is stronger with prohibition than it would be without it. That is probably so, yet just the same it cannot be denied that the party would pe stronger in Iowa, had it never fostered prohibition. TOWNSHIPS.

It is probable, that the entire democratic state ticket has been reelected wUh the possible exception of the; candidate for state superintendent. The republicans will have a majority on joint ballot in the legislature. Aside from the fact that the state has been saved from the fate of Michigan and the further fact that prohibition is safe for another two years, republicans have little cause for congratulation over the Went election in low*, The thing to do u to accept the situation ftB<J commence the campaign of 18$ iip- upon national is»uee. We|f9< the wpiWfiw *l «V,J ftfiBI state for the national ticket on the issues upon which Ohio gave Major McKinley such a magnificent majority. Any attempt by republican papers to explain how it happened in Iowa this year will be productive of very little consolation. No one can entirely account for the defeat except upon some hypothesis specially gotten up for the purpose. Prohibitiou, it seems to us, did not do it all, as some republican papers assert. Mr, Wheeler is not entirely to blame because he conducted a mum campaign. A score of causes might be mentioned each one of which was instrumental in bringing about the reelection of Gov. Boies. Prohibition did its share in pulling down the republican majority. Mr. Wheeler's silent campaign gave the democrats a good subject to harp upon and they made the most of it. Hundreds of republicans voted for Boies who would otherwise have voted for Mr. Wheeler had be appeared upon the stump and made an aggressive campaign, Mr. Van Houten, in spite of the lies that were circulated against him ran steadily ahead of Mr, Wheeler. He went upon the stump early in the campaign and remained there until its close. In KossutU county Mr. Wheeler received a majority of 112 aud Mr. Van Houten a majority T>f 173. A similar gain all over Iowa would have elected Mr. Van Houten by quite a respectable majority. In nearly every county of the state he ran ahead of Mr. Wheeler. U«4 P&ciel Kerr been at the bead of the republican ticket sa §py of a dozen other would have £«A@ upon ods of conducting « campaign the result might h&ve been different. Whatever the causes for the detent of the state ticket may have been, republicans should not be discouraged. There is always an ebb and flow in politics, « vibrating between two extremes. Witii a strong pull together next year there is no reason why the peadulum may not return in the direction of an old time republican majority. PROHIBITION NOT THE CAVSK Keokuk Gate City: Many will say it was prohibition killed Iowa—republicanism is not dead. And before prohibition came up as an issue the republican party was tied in the Iowa Legislature by the anti-monopoly issue, and later lost our majority in the State on the greenback issue, and in by not taking up prohibition. It is as as broad as it is long. There is no prohibition in New York and the republicans did not win there. If it is not one thing that tells against the majority party it is another. The ebb and flow is ceaseless. The Iowa republican party was far stronger by reason of its position as to prohibition in Iowa in last Tuesday's elections than it would have been otherwise. That position brought many democrats to it and b,ejd many in town an,<J have voted agftiuet AN^LLLYOF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. On the issue of representative there was practically no fight made. Mr. Bourne was called out of the state to attend the supposed death-bed of his mother, just at the time when his campaign should have been, pushed, and as a consequence nothing was done. Unless the candidate for office leads and inspires his following, as a rule, no one else can do it. But Mr. Bourne received the full vote given to Boies, as a rule, except in one township where for some unaccountable cause be was severely cut. The democratic party did its duty toward him, and that is all the party he had. This election has demonstrated the fact that the Alliance business means nothing unless as republican ally. If the thing were to be done all over again, no better, more honest or intelligent representative of the farmers could be found in the district than Dr. Bourne, and still the farmers, outside of the democrats, had no use for him. It may be well to have this fact thus demonstrated.—Courier. The editor of the Courier makes a somewhat serious imputation against the horse sense of the democratic managers, himself included. If the Alliance is such an ally of the Republican party the Courier should have found it out some time ago and warned the democratic party against making a fool of itself by putting up a man for the purpose 9| trying to catch the Alliance vote. {£ the democrats are fishing for the fft|mer vote, they want to use a biggw wan for bait than Pr, Bourne. Highest of all in Leavening Power—Latest U. S. Gov't Report. Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE W. C. T. U. Notes. At the meeting in the Reading Boom on Friday last the ladies present signed their names to the World's W. C. T. U. petition, which asks that all governments abolish the traffic in alcohol and opium. This petition is to be in readiness for the World's W. C. T. U. Convention which will meet in Tremont Temple, Boston, Nov. 13. It is said the petition will contain one million names and during the convention in Boston either Tremont Temple or Faneul Hall will be festooned with it. T!ie W. C. T. U. women of. Iowa w«ce this year for the first time granted a place in the Sioux City Corn Palace. Their booth was made very attractive. A globe of the world belted with white ribbon was suspended from the canopy above and surrounding this was the motto, "For God and Home and Every Land." There was a beautiful piece of statuary in corn, representing "Rebecca at tue Well," and among other pictures that representing "Daniel refusing the King's wine," was very fine. Thirteen ladies .gave their time and labor for three weeks for the perfecting of this booth. The W. C. T. U. building erected this year on the State Pair grounds, is two stories and 23x40 feet. There is still a tabernacle to be added which when completed will seat 500 or 600 people. . At the State W. C. T. U. meeting held in Des Moines in October the sum of two hundred dollars was given by the women of the Convention. One hundred for the Temperance Temple and oae hundred for the National Temperance hospital in Chicago. Also, the money was pledged for ten thousand copies of the Iowa Signal, cop* taining proceedings of the Convention. The lotfa Signal is the monthly W. C. T. U. panei,' published by Hiss Clara A. Stevens 19 Des Moines, The Temperance Temple has now reached the thirteenth story and is said to be one of the handsomest buildings in Chicago. It will be complete and m readiness for the World's Fair in 1893. Mr. A. I). Clarke has recently given Heading Boam a >u; The World's Kuir and tlu> Sabbath. A state convention for the discussion of the subject "Shall we protect the Christian Sabbath; give the army of wage earners their rightful day of rest and close the World's Fair on Sunday," will be held at Marion, Iowa, in the Presbyterian Church, !Nov. 17 and 18. Some of the best talent in thestatt? luip been secured. Also various topics v\ ill be open for discussion by the bouse. Entertainment will be furnished to delegates. Come all friends of the Sabbath—you cannot afford to miss the occasion. Let all churches send delegates. C. 11. HUNT, Sec'y. 11. M. HEMLEY, Pres. Keota, Iowa.

J. \Vana» maker, the great clothing manufacturer of Philadelphia and member ot the cabinet. This prosperous merchant has a strong belief in the virtues of newspaper advertising and he is not afraid to say so. This is what he says: "I never in my life used such a thing as a poster or dodger or handbill. My\ plan for fifteen years has been to buy "* so much space in a newspaper ami 1:11 it up with what I wauted. I would not give an advertisement in u newspaper of 500 civeulatiou for 5,000 aodg-- ers or posters. If J wanted to sell cheap jewelry or run a gambling scheme I might use posters, but I would not in$ult a decent reading public with handbills. The class of people who read such things are poor material to look to for support in mercantile affairs. I deal directly with, tb& pub* lishei.
