The fact that the bum element of Dubuque and Davenport elected Governor Boies takes much of the cuss off of republican situation. the The only way of ascertaining the will of the people is through a resubmiasion of the question at a non-partisan election. The only honorable thing for the republicans of the next legislature to do, is to stand by the pledges upon which they were elected, Every member of the legislature knows the will of his constituents with reference to the repeal of prohibition. Ho has no right to act upon his interpretation of the will of the people of Iowa. In any event there is no call for undue haste and an undue display of excitement. The REPUBLICAN has watched with no little interest the many expressions of republican opinion that have been given currency by the press. We find in most of them a common sense acceptance of the situation and no disposition for undue haste in the direction of weakening upon the question of prohibition. The RE- runr.icAN will continue to advocate prohibition as a party policy until it has been determined that the sentiment of the people of Iowa has undergone an entire change during the past ten years. It is the duty of the legislature to pass and repeal laws with reference to the will of the people of Iowa. The will of the people in the matter of prohibition can only be determined through a non-partisan election. We favor resubmission at the earliest date practicable. Until the people of Iowa have spoken the repub lican members of the legislature can have no choice but to stand by the pledges to their constituents. Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S, Gov't Report. Baking Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE J. H. QUEAL LUMBER CO. The Republican National Convention will be held in Minneapolis the 7th of next June. The location of the big convention in the Mississippi valley and in one of the best cities of the country should meet with immense approval. A short time ago the editor of an exchange with Chicago insides, iu making an effort to convince his readers that it •was better to have somebody else edit one side of his paper than to edit both sides himself, said some things about the "all home print" plan that were quite misleading. The editor declared that he was unable to see what difference it made •whether the Algona REPUBLICAN was printed in Chicago or printed on plates made in Chicago and shipped to Algona It makes the difference between having no control, whatever, and having absolute control over what enters into the columns of the REPUBLICAN. That is quite a difference in the estimation of the editor of this paper, TIRED OF FREE TRADE. A significant statement comes from Switzerland. Business of all kinds is suffering, bankruptcy is prevalent and the thrifty and industrious working classes hardly obtain means to live. The Swiss ascribe this condition of affairs to the long period of low tariff, which has made their country "a market of the world," while other markets have been closed in by a high tariff fence against the products of Switzerland. They have therefore resolved to keep their home market in the future.—N. Y. Press. Republican papers are becoming too much exorcised just at present over the question of "what to do about prohibition." The best thing for republicans to do right now about prohibition is to do nothing and say less. Putting it in a slangy way: republicans should refrain from getting rattled, .just now, and keep their shirts on for other reasons than that it is cold weather. It is a fact worthy of mention in this connection, that democrats are willing just now to keep quiet on the question of what ou!*ht to be done about prohibition and listen to the hubbub that is going on among republicans. It is music to democratic ears, for it adds still further to the embarrassment of the republican situation. There is humiliation enough in defeat. Let us hear no talk about deserting the colors under which defeat was encountered. There is ample time before another republican convention to decide the question whether prohibition as a party policy should be abandoned. Let the decision at least be postponed until the real causes for the election of the democratic state ticket have been determined. Anti prohibition republicans insist upon the immediate abandonment of prohibition, urging that the defeat of the republican party was due solely and alone to a suicidal championship of the prohibition cause. In this demand they are joined by a large number of republicans who were loud for prohibition during the campaign. Borne even go so far as to assert that the republicans in the legislature should— "in recognition of the will of the people expressed at the polls"-~join with the democrats in the repeal of prohibition and the passing of a license law. We take it that the will of the people in regard to prohibition was expressed in the election of a republican legislature rather than in the election of a democratic executive. The election of Governor Boies was due rather to the lack of aggressive leaders and campaigners among the republican candidates.. GOT. Boies made a magnificent fight and in spite of his numerous bulls and blunders he proved to be stronger than his party. Afl absolute expression of the will of the people can- mot be determined from the results of the late election, for while we think there is force in our own argument it is probable that many republicans voted for Gaver/go? Boies iu expression of their wiU is the GIVE THEM RESPONSIBILITY. From the IA Mars Sentinel. The great moral etronghold of the Democratic party has always been its natural, constitutional tendency to "kick." The party has always been opposed to progress of every kind and has waged a fault finding war on ervery upward movement. It has opposed every change, from the abolition of slavery, the protective tariff, the admission of new states, down to prohibition in Iowa. The "chronic kicker" always linds some followers. Lately the chronic kicker Democrats in Iowa have been getting more followers at the polls than have the more progressive Republicans. It, is always easier to criticise policies than te form them. A party policy is always .made responsible for the bad results, both direct and indirect, and has to bear the blame for many other evils of the time in which it is in no way to blame. Criticism is never responsible to anyone for any thing. Just at present the Democrats want the Republicans to pool issue with them on the saloon question. If the Republican party makes itself responsible the Democrats will have nothing to do but to continue its wail of woe. It is often a good thing not to do what the opposition want done. Let the Democrats try a hand at doing something themselves, and see what their efforts will bring forth. REPUBLICAN OPINION. The Ottumwa Courier has been at work collecting opinions from prominent republicans upon the question. "In-view of the recent democratic victory in Iowa, what do you think should be the policy of the small republican majority in the legislature as to the prohibitory law?" We reprint a few of the replies that are indicative of the sentiment of the republicans of .Iowa. A number replied to the Courier's question favoring the repeal of prohibition but they were in the minority: R. J?. ClurkHoii, Editor J)e»7\Ioliies HegiHter DBS MOINKS. Nov.16, 1891. They should let the democrats handle the hot irons, at least until the republi can sentiment of the state has been fully developed. Daniel iKcrr, 1 ; Kx-Conjjressmaii Fifth I>iK- trlct. GRUNDY CENTER, la., Nov. 18, '91. I would have the "small" republican majority act in reference to the question of prohibition as I would have them act in reference to every other question; re main true to their convictions and princi pies and to the pledges they made to the constituencies that elected them and am surprised that any other course would be thought of for an instant. For the mem bers elected to change their principles on this question would be no less stultiiica lion than to desert the policy of protec tion or of sound currency or of any othe principle at issue in the campaign. Hon. John Morrison. HENDRICK, Nov. 18, '91. I cannot imagine how any republican who accepted a nomination indorsing the state platform can vote with the democrats to repeal the law. In view of the recent election and in his own discretion he might vote to re-submit the question to the people. CoiigresHimui Perkins, Editor Sionx City Journal. Sioux CITY, Nov. 18, '91. You ask me: "In view of the recent, democratic victory in Iowa what do you think should be the policy of the small republican majority in the legislature as to the prohibitory law?" I answer: To be wise, and in wisdom is involved prudence; to be just, and iu justice is involved knowledge; to be honorable, and in honor is involved loyalty to friends. The first obligation of every man is as the representative of the voice and vote of his immediate constituents. Beyond that he should give his loyal service as he may to the voiceless. Al. Siviilm. Editor Oskaloosa Herald. I should let our democratic friends walk, sweat and "cuss" a while on this matter.

From the Canadian Manufacturer. A most forcible illustration of the benefits of a high tariff policy is shown where the United States has forced Brazil, Spam, Germany and other countries to show special tariff favors, where before hostile tariffs operated to largely exclude American products; and from this Canada might take a profitable lesson. Brazil has always found the United States her best market for hides, sugar, coffee, etc., but she has always imposed heavy duties upon American flour, bacon, lard, etc. Under her system of protection the United States was able to say to Brazil, "We propose to admit certain of your products free, and will do so if you will admit certain of our products on the same terms. If you do not do this, then we will levy a heavy duty upon your products." Of course we all know how quickly Brazil saw the point and acceded to the bargain. The same lever opened Cuba; and now Germany has concluded that if she desires to sell millions of dollars worth of bwtt »ugar to the United States, Bending it there duty free, she must change her 8M»d about American hog products, accept the inevitable, and reciprocate at the dictation of Mr. Elaine. These are tome of the benefit* oi pro- lection «md some of the means by which. OUK CLUBBING LIST.
