When the case ia called for trial, it will probably be continued until the next term of court. There ought to be some way for an editor to obtain redress when a libel suit is brought against him maliciously or for the purpose of getting some free advertising. When a newspaper man is sued for libel he has to defend himself and that costs money. It takes an editor with considerable sand in his gizzard to say just what he thinks on all occasions. the number who would be forced to pay their fines or go to prison. We cannot recall that we ever saw flu obscene advertisement in the News. An inspection the other day of the exchanges thatcome to the REPUBLICAN office revealed a large number of papers whose columns are not as clean as those of the Spencer News. If Section 5836 of the Revised Statutes of Iowa is to be construed as meaning what it very plainly says, the number of unconvicted criminals occupying Iowa newspaper sanctums is enormous. Look at a partial list of them: The Sioux City Times and Carroll Herald are each running three of the prohibited advertisements, the Franklin County Recorder and Dubugue Times have four apiece, the State Register has seven, the Dubuque Telegraph eight, the Sioux City Journal eleven, the Burlington Hawkeye twelve and Sam Clark's weekly Gate City sixteen of the filthy and unlawful advertisements, for the publication of any one of which an editor might be indicted and punished, or we misinterpret the plain English of the statute. We reiterate our statement that if the laws of Iowa were enforced the,,county jails would be full of editors. Highest of all in Leavenirig Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report.

GROVE The California Proas Association is making a_ yigorous^fight against the use of "patent outsides""or ''insfdes"" in' tire publication of newspapers, and we are glad to see that it is proving effective. A number of papers have recently thrown aside their "patents" and are being printed all at home. This is rit;ht. No paper can use a "patent" and deal honestly with its home advertisers, and nobody knows the truth of this better than those •who use "patents". We are proud to say that a "patent" has never been issued from the Dispatch Democrat office in the twenty-two years of its existence. We own and control our own columns.— Mendocino Dispatch and Democrat. LIVERY, FEED, AND SALE STABLE Senator Plumb of Kansas commenced life as the editor of a country newspaper. But a short time before his death he delivered an address before an editorial convention and said among other things: I believe in the local newspapers. They are the leaders, the makers of public sentiment. They are nearer to the people than any other papers. Their editors mingle 'with the people, and consciously or unconsciously reflect the views of their readers. By my private letters from all parts of the state, and by reading the local papers, I can tell just what the people of Kansas are thinking and talking about. I can feel the pulse of the people and take their temperature. I am amazed, too, at the excellence of our county papers. The majority of them are carefully, ably edited. They not only print the news of their neighborhood, but have opinions which I find it worth my while to read and reflect upon. I get no better return for any of the money which I pay out for the local newspapers of my state. Suppose the United State's should be forced to declare war against Chili in order-to maintain our national dignity? It is a supposition that the state department finds very little satisfaction in entertaining. Chili is a small country and as impertinent as she is small. It would be rather humiliating to find ourselves powerless to exact reparation of that country for the murder of our sailors and the insult to our flag. The United States ' j»avyis scarcely a match for the navy of QbUUnd it is impossible to build and equip;* modern, war vessel in a ftwr. Tbe .lime to prepare for war is during a time of peace and we have been too stingy vitfe our appropriations for tfce navy. The policy of the United States has always befn, ft n4 efeoujd continue to be ft peace policy. The best guarantee, of continued peace would be better coiaji defenses and » navy powerful enougfetp •whip anything that rides the ocean. Until the millenlunj arrives it won't be safe to iavitfl w%r b^. allowing ourselves to remain in a defenseless condition. for the TIN PLATE PRICES. Chicago Inter Ocean: The Chicago TribuneTs hostilities to the American tin plate industry may be concealed for a few days, but it breaks out afresh on the slightest provocation. The acting secretary of the treasury has ruled that "imported plates of iron or steel can be dipped in imported tin or lead and thereby become American tin plate;" we quote the interpretation of the decision made by the Tribune. It is not an exact interpretation, but let that pass. The purpose of the Tribune is revealed in sentences which read thus: "As all consumers of tin have to pay the increased price for American tinned plates which are made from English iron and Welsh tin and lead, they may feel like grumbling, but their right to do so may be questioned. Ought not their bosoms to swell with canscious pride at the thought of using exclusively that intensely patriotic product, American tin plate? And should they not deem that full compensation for whatever advance in the price they may have to pay to support the truly American industry of dipping imported plates into melted imported tin?" Really, no American tin plate factories have used imported iron or steel platea except during the experimental stages'bf the industry. They will not continue to use them, because as soon as the demand for them exists they can be had cheaper and better of American than of English make. For the foreign made steel or iron plates are, and will continue to be, subject to duty. The use of foreign made iron or steel plates was almost obligatory in the early stages of American tin manufacture, because when we had no tin plate works our iron and steel mills did not turn out plates thin enough for tin ware. With the demand for these plates the supply is coming. As to the untruthful insinuation that the consumer will have to pay "the increased price for American made tin plates," it is enough to say that the American made plates will not sell for more than imported ones, though they may sell for less. So the old questions recur: Is the tariff a tax? Will the foreign article be increased in price by t-he increase of duty by the McKiniey bill? The answer is plain; the tariff 1 on tin plate is not a tax; it has not raised the prices of foreign goods. The proof is at hand. Iron, a British trade journal, gives prices of Welsh tin plate at Prince of Wales dock, Swansea, ready for foreign shipment; they run thus for the third week of November in four consecutive years: 1888 12s Gd to 13s Od. less 3 andl per cent. 1880 1636(1 to 15s Ud, less 3 and 1 percent. 1890 16s lid to 16s Od. lesssandl par'cent. 1891 123 Gd to 123 Od, less 3 and \ per cent. Ryland (England) Iron Trade Circular quotes tin plate, I C, Bessemer steel, at 12s fid per lot, delivered free on board ship at Liverpool for shipment to America on November 81 last. Two facts lie plain in sight. (1) The McKinley tariff has not increased the 1 price of Welsh plates to American consumers; they are .lower since the tariff than before it, (3) During the time in which the American free trade papers were able, to create an impression of the impossibility or improbability of the manufacture of tin plate in this country the Welsh monopolists raised prices and the American consumer paid for the vaticina- tions of the American prophets of British free trade.
