Congressman Dolliver's recent speech in congress is acknowledged to have been ona of the greatest speeches upon the tariff question ever delivered before tha body. Our inability to give the reader of the REPUBLICAN even a synopsis o the speech is a matter of considerable re gret. A democratic paper is trying to extrac comfort out of the reflection that "Rhod Island is a little state and don't amoun to much." We would advise that pape to work its imagination around to th point of believing that the Uuited State is a pretty small country and don' amount to much. The United States going to act just like Rhode Island did next November. The effect of a protective tariff upon wool is immediate and noticeable as th history of our wool tariffs will show. Ii 1867 a protective duty was placed upoi wool to the manifest great advantag of the sheep raise of the United States The number of sheep rose from 28,477, 343 in 1870 to 50,626,626 in 1884. In 188 the tariff on wool was reduced and th effect was immediate. In 1889 the num ber of sheep had fallen to 42,599,079. Th effects of the McKinley bill upon the sheep industry are already being felt, and it is estimated that there are now about 45,000,000 sheep in the country. If the farmers of this country wish to find any profit in raising sheep they will favor their own interests by insisting that a good strong protective tariff should be retained upon wool. The democrats in congress have struck scheme for the circulation of free trade tterature at the public expense. Under he privilege granted congressmen to print their speeches in the Congressional lecora.some half dozen democratic mem- >ers of the house, including congressman Bowman of the 9th Iowa district, have managed to get the entire work of Henry George against protection printed in the Record. Each of the half dozen congressmen incorporated sevaral chapters of the book in his speech, and the speeches were so scheduled that the chapters appeared in the Congressional Record in their regular order. Congressman Bowman's speech, omitting the two or three ihapters quoted from Henry George, was as follows: Mr. Chairman: I desire to have printed, as expressing very ably my views on the subject of this bill, the following, being an extract from Henry George's writings. It is the ablest paper that I know of in opposition to the theory of protection. Dolliver represents the Tenth district in Congress, but he is too promising a man to be hemmed in by the boundry lines of a small congressional district. All Iowa is interested in the man to whom Thomas B. Reed is willing to concede his time in debate. Ho honored his stata and his party in his recent magnificent speech in Congress in opposition to the Democratic free wool proposition.—Toledo Chronicle. LITERARY NOTES. In the current number of Harper's Young People William Dean Howels begins a fantastic and amusing tale called "The Pumpkin-glory," which is appropriately illustrated by Verbeck. Kirk Munroe's new serial "Canoemates,"ls continued, and there Is an unusually rich variety of short steries, sketches, and interesting articles. Tribute to Shakespear is the title of a unique and attractive little volume by Mary K. Silsby, to be published at once by Harper & Brothers. It includes what are believed to be the best poetical tributes to the great dramatist printed during three centuries. The poems arc arranged for the most part chronologically, and whenever necessary are supplemented with brief explanatory notes. The nature of the northern part of the new British empire that Mr. Cecil Khodes is establishing in South Africa is well desciibed in an article in the Review of Reviews, for April, entitled "With Mr. Rhodes Through Mashona- land." It is an account of a long journey inland that Mr. Rhodes, the Premier of Cape Colony, has just taken to inspect the wonderful new gold fields, over which there is so great an excitement. Tlie article is illustrated with several portraits, including a full-page picture of "Mr. Rhodes at Home," Julian Ralph, continuing his very popula series of papers on the great Northwest, has written an account of "The Dakotas" for the May number of Harper's Magazine. Those who have read his former articles will need no introduction to this strikingly comprehensive and graphic description of one of the most remarkable portions of our country. Rendering to the six new states recently admitted into the Union, Mr. Ralph says : "In area they are about the size of Alaska, and they are larger than France, Germany, Italy and Holland combined. One if the States is greater than Great Britain and reland, and one county in that State is larger han New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Con- lecticut. The population of those six States is ,bout like that of little New Jersey, yet it is thought that at least half as many persons as are now in the entire country could maintain ife in that corner of the nation." The value of a comprehensive and popular exposition, such ts Mr. Ralph gives, of the peculiarities of situ- Uion, soil, and resources of this great region s at once evident. E. E. SAYKRS, D. V.

Sioux City is passing from a condition of double distilled cussedness to a state most remarkable piety. The new mayor signalized his administration by inaugurating a successful crusade against the saloons and bawdy houses which had grown to such a large number under the administration of Mayor Palmer and his democratic council. Now the saloon men are retaliating by enforcing the Sunday closing laws. Drug stores, cigar stores and restaurants were closed last Sunday. Street car lines were tied up considerable excitement prevailed. It is reported that an effort will be made by the saloonists to prevent the publication of the Sioux City Journal next Sunday morning. From being the worst, Sioux City is in a fair way to become the most moral town along the Missouri river. E. G. BOWYER, DEALEK IN WATCHES, CLOCKS AND JEWELRY, All kinds of Silverware.

Ottumwa Courier: When Hon. J. P. Dolliver made his famous speech as chairman of the Republican state convention a few years ago lie startled the Clarks and Clarksons and Burrels. He was regarded as a phenomenon, and hailed as the foremost political orator in Iowa. Then came the critics who said that Dolliver had been at work for years on that speech and that it was the climax of his oratory. He would bank, they said, on the reputa tion of that effort, and soon sink to the level of mediocre stump speakers. But every consecutive speech that Dolliver has made has proved that those predictions were not based upon a knowledge of the man and his latent ability. And when Mr. Dolliver was sent to congress the critics said that he would talk too much and reveal the want not only of substantial information, but good hard sense. Dolliver's intimate friends, however, entered a protest to all these predictions, and time has proven their wisdom. The best thing about the talented young orator is that he insists on growing. He not only has the ability of putting "cracker" on everything he says, something that will attract attention because of his epigrammatic or humorous way ol putting things, but he is continually dem onstrating that he possesses a student's mind and a student's disposition to get at the bottom of every leading question He also, in his career in the bouse, has demonstrated a remarkable talent for hard sense which has converted into sue cess what to other as brilliant young men perhaps, has invited inevitable failure and oblivion.
