Stead, that will be read, with interest by everyone who would have a better idea of the social condition of Russia in their relation to the Czar and the Russian political system. rights of the press of Iowa. The newspaper is expected to publish all matters of legitimate news strictly and truthfully, without regard to the manner in which anyone's interests may be affected by the recital. Acting in its function of a news- irer the daily paper, every time that it leaves the press contains more or less matter that can be construed as libelous under tbe existing statutes. What is true of the daily paper is true in perhaps a lesser degree of the weekly. The editor must publish the news, it is his business. Blunders in reporting matters of news are inevitable, and for every blunder the publisher is liable to prosecution for libel if someonb imagines that his reputation or business has been damaged. The utmost precautions are titken by most newspapers against all such mistakes but the publication of frequent false reports is inevitable. The newspaper is expected to have opinions and ideas on all matters of pub lie interest, and to advocate and maintain them, tc inquire into matters relating to public morals and the public welfare. The editor who is fearless in the expression of his opinions is a thousand times in danger of prosecution under the statutes of libel. The prosecution may be malicious, it may be instituted as a mutter of speculation in the hope of receiving damages, or it may be for the purpose of furnishing the party who claims to have been libeled with a little notoriety and a little free advertising. However unjust and unwarranted the prosecution maybe, the publisher must stand the annoyance of a law suit and the expense of defend- STOVES I am handling the justly celebrated Monitors + and + Bucks.

Not one libel suit in ten overgoes against the publisher but the annoyance to which he is subjected and the expense the defense costs him are no small considerations. The legislature could do justice to the publishers of the state by modifying the present libel law in many respects which will suggest themselves when the statutes are studied.

The democratic house of • representatives is making a fine start in the direction of doing something to meet the popular approval. The Fifty Second congress is going to give the people an example of economic legislation to go down in history along side of the prodigal appropriations of the Fifty First. That is the idea. Holding to this idea the democratic house of representatives have already made a blunder that will cost their party dearly. The blunder was in the defeat of the bill providing an appropriation for furnishing the necessary vessels to transport the relief supplies raised by the people of the United States for the famine sufferers in Russia. Every democrat with a heart to be reached by human suffering will condemn the action of bis party in congress. It was a great blunder upon the part of the democrats and it will carry its effects. J. F. EDWARDS & CO., POTATOES POUtTBY A SPECIALTY, Senator Schmidt of Davenport, one of the chief exponents of the democratic plan for furthering "the interests of true temperance" was taken with something resembling delirium tremens in a Des Moines hotel Monday evening and created quite a sensation if the telegraphic reports to the daily papers are to be credit ed. It is said that be went yelling through the corridors of the hole], that some demon was trying to kill him, and insisting that the imaginary person should meet him in front and not "sneak up behind." Senator Schmidt represents a constituency of democratic voters that elected Qov. Boies. He stands for the democrat Jo side of tbe temperance question. Coming as be, do#s Iron) one of tbe whiskey strongholds of tbe state tbe democrats purpose to duly recognise tbe saloon power by giving bis name to a biil which intend to substitute (or toe pro- THE GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE. Governor Boies delivered his second biennial message to the members of the general assembly yesterday afternoon. The message was quite lengthy and in many respects a very sensible communication. „• tt was devoted largely to a statement of the financial condition of the state and contains many suggestions with reference to state appropriations. The governor favors a liberal appropriation for the Iowa exhibit at the coming Columbian exposition and in order that Iowa may make a showing in keeping with the wealth and prosperity of the state, without running in debt, he favors "the substantial abandonment at present of special appropriations for the use of state institutions beyond what is actually necessary to prevent the waste of property now on hand, or a large increase in the tax levy next fall." Thw governor also favors a state board of control for the management of the various state institutions, the board to represent a consolidation of the several boards now in existence. He also suggests a system of supervision of all private corporations similar to the system under which insurance companies are now required to do business. The message ought to bring hope to the farmer who has been raising corn at a loss of 67 cents per acre owing to an unjust tariff, and the prohibitory law which has driven capital out of the state and done 80 much to ruin business. The message tells an encouraging story of the prosperity of Iowa. The Governor has reserved bis discussion of the prohibition question for his inaugural address which will probably be as full of "calamity" as the message was of "prosperity." F. S.
