Steam power. „„,,„ THR IttcruBLicAM is an AH. HOME J>KINT paper. No objectionable patent in- Iowa's exhibit at the World'3 Fair should be an immense corn palace, and among the exhibits in the corn palace •shoule be the present governor. The Wesley Reporter is going to en- Jarge. We are glad to note it. The Reporter is a good little newspaper and should be appreciated by the Wesley people. We suppose it is. A town is sized up by the outside world more from the 'character of its newspaper than any other one thing. The newspaper is what reaches the outside world and tells of the town. Every citizen who is 1 loyal to his town, will help the editor to make & good newspaper, he will not'be penurious with •his patronage. Iowa's appropriation.'for an exhibit at the Columbian exposition is $125,000. 'Iowa could have appropriated twice that ^amount and never missed it. We make ; the observation not because we would •have favored a larger appropriation, but 'because it is a pleasing reflection to •know that the appropriation could have 'been made without serious embarass •ment to State financies. Iowa's appropriation is small compared with the appropriations of some other States, but it is not because the State is stricken with poverty. I cannot refrain from sending a word of good cheer on the prospects of the re publican party. On all leading measures relating to the industrial and financial interests of the people, we ore strong and growing stronger. On the contrary, our opponents are weak and growing weaker. They are divided; we are united. If we do not win it is our own fault. We will be justly censurable if, with such great measures involved, every republican does not feel that lie is appealed to personally and that victory in the election depend on him.—tames G. Elaine. DEMOCRATIC ECONOMY. The River and Harbof bill has been completed aud carries appropriations amounting to $20,700,000. It is calcu- ated to make Judge Holman lie awake nights in despair. While it nominally .ppropriates $282,400 less than the total if the bill reported to the last Congress, here were items in that bill amounting o $2,140,000,on account of improvements of Galveston and Baltimore harbors, St. Mary's River and some other water iourses, which Democratic leaders propose to put into the Sundry Civil Ap- >ropriation bill this year. The proposed appropriations in the bill reported are nearly $2,000, 000 greater than in the River and Harbor bill as reported in the ast Congress. If the increase stopped short with the mere expenditure of a Couple of millions the bill might be considered as subject to Holman's objections )Ut it authorizes contracts to be made and appropriates small amounts of money to be paid thereon which will require upward of $25,000,000 to carry into effect. As examples of these contracts may be mentioned one for the improvement of the Mississippi River from St. Paul to its mouth, which it is estimated will eventually cost $12,700/000; a 21-foot channel through the Great Lakes from Duluth to Buffalo, which will cost $2,840,000; improvements in Savannah Harbor, $2,792, )00, and various -other like enterprises. There was a time when the Democratic party bitterly opposed internal improvements at the expense of the federal government, but the (River and Harbor bill as prepared for the present Congress is an indication that they are running riot u an opposite 'direction.—New York Press. The legislature will adjourn tomorrow after a session of about three months, having done very little to compensate the state for the salaries paid its members. Aside from making a few approp riations very little of importance wer accomplished. The World's fair gets $125,000. The Agricultural College, Soldiers Home, and Boys Reform School gets appro priations. Th.e State Dairy Association .gets $1,000 per year and several other minor appropriations have been made 'The legislature v/as tconomical in its ap propriations but it is a question ^if tha can be said as as an argument in its favor The most important act of the .session was.the passage of the Australian >ballo bill. A good shaie of the session was fooled away in the attempt to do eome thing with prohibition and the law >is U stand .just as it is. Gerrymandering received its first hare blow a few days ago at the hands of the .supreme court of the State of Wisconsin the court deciding that the recent redist ricting of the State by the democratic leg Islature was unconstitutional. Gerry mandering is the gravest offense in th< category of political crimes. All partie .have been caore or less guilty of its prac tice, the democratic party in particular •Down in Missouri another democratic .gerrymander has been committed. At th last Presidential election the republican ivote was about forty-five per cert, of the entire vote of the State, and yet the dem •corals managed to elect thirteen out o the fourteen congressmen. Gerrymander ing is a blacker political crime titan buy ing votes or stuffing ballot boxes. It is robbing a people of representation. The i\ r ew York Press gives the follow ing figures as to the increase of Urban population in the United States: In 179G one-thirtieth of the population was found in cities of more than 8,000 population; in 1800, one-twenty-fifth; ic 1810 and l&.'O, one-twentieth; in 1830, one-sixteenth; in 1840, one-twelfth; in 1850, one-eighth; in IbGO, one-sixth; in 1870, more than one fifth; in 1880, half •way between one-fifth and one-fourth and DOW in 1890, pretty nearly one-third The figures given furnish muck for the political economist to think about. The free trader will argue that it all goes to prove that farming don't pay, that the farmers are all leaving the country ant going to the city. The Dubuque Tele graph made some such argument as tha a few days ago and said it was all due to our tariff policy, this building up o large cities. According to the Tele graph's logic the farmer of 1790 had an immense advantage over the farmer o to day. Mark Twain.

I have been asked many times what will remove these unsightly Wemishes. No face paints or powders will remove them, as they are caused by impure blood. The only sure remedy I have ever seen is Sulphur Bitters, and in hundreds of cases I have never known them to fail.—Ed- itress Fashion Gazette. The kind of women who would make their husbands obey and stand around are the kind of women who don't have any. It is a fixed and immutable law that to have good, sound health one must have pure, rich and abundant blood. There is no shorter nor surer route than by a course of DeWitt's Sarsaparilla. Wonderful.
