The meat of the Courier's reply reads as follows. "We will admit, however, that the prices of articles have not raised since the passage of the McKinley bill as it was expected they would. The reasons why prices have not gone up as the natural result of that law, as we sec it, are two: First, vast quantities of goods affected by that bill were imported prior to its passage and have since supplied the demand at the old prices. Second, there has been a united effort on the part of those benefiUcd by the tariff to keep the prices down so as to discredit the opponents of high tariff aud to give a new lease of life to the system. * * * * # » * Most people remember when quinine sold for §5 an ounce. When the high- tariff tax on it was removed it was selling from $3 to $-1 an ounce. Now it sells for from forty to fifty cents an ounce at retail. For ten cents as much quinine can be bought now as was sold for $1 under the republican tax. The "protective" price of quinine at retail was 1,000 per cent, (ten limes) higher than the present price under the free trade in it. In the case of sugar, as in that of quinine, the reduction in the retail price has followed at once after the removal of the tax on the wholesale trade. The increase oil the dollar's worth of sugar at retail (from fourteen pounds under the tax to twenty pounds without the tax) is a notable one, but the price of sugar is still much higher than it would be were trade in table sugar as it is in the raw sugar. The tax of §10 a ton against the importation of table sugar has not prevented a remarkable fall in price as a result of free trade in raw sugar. It is not high enough to allow the sugar trust to restore prices to the old limit and hold them there, but it prevents the accumulation of foreign stocks in this market. If there were no tax to keep out foreign table sugar, the cheapening of sugar would be as great as was the cheapening of quinine. If the trade in clothing were put on the same basis as the trade in sugar, the effect would be the same' A dollar would then buy what it takes at least $1.50 to buy now. In many articles of necessary use, the reduction would be greater than it has been in the case of sugar, and as great as in the case of quinine." In making the unavoidable admission that prices have not suffered the increase predicted the Courier forgets its assertion made a little over a year ago as to the in- creaed cost of clothing a family of six children by reason of the McKinley bill. Prices have not increased since the passage of the McKinley bill "as it was expected they would,"—and the Courier might have added as it was so confidently predicted that they would, just prior to the election of 1890. Whatever explanation may be offered for the fact, we are glad at last to have an admission from a democratic newspaper that prices haye not increased according to democratic prophecies and expectations. The reasons assigned by the Courier for the obstinate persistence of prices in refusing to go up have the merit of being novel and original if there is no other merit in them. The first reason was advanced by some democratic papers in the early days of the new tariff, and it is true that large importations were made in anticipation of the new tariff, but in a few mouths the Congress dirt a good thing in removing it. The great reduction in the price of sugar following the removal of the high tariff upon it is next cited by the Courier ns a clincher to the argument that "the tariff is a tax." The answer to this democratic "sugar" argument has been made so often as to became a chestnut, like the argument itself. So little sugar was manufactured in the United States in proportion to the amount consumed that the sugar tariff become in effect "a tariff for revenue only" as it failed to build up the sugar industry in this country. As nearly all of our sugar was imported from abroad the tariff was necessarily added to the price and necessarily paid by the consumer. In the case of tin plate we have cited, and a bund red other cases to which we might call attention, the foreign manufacturer in the face of American competition or the promise of it, is forced to pay the tariff himself or stay out of the American market. There is a wide difference between a protective tariff and a tariff for revenue only. The democratic party is in favor of a tariff for revenue only and we might remind the Courier that the democrats in Congress voted against rc- 'moving the tariff upon sugar. It requires money, millions of it, to run the affairs of this government. There is only one way to raise the money and that is by taxation. Do the people of the United States prefer to pay the tax themselves or make somebody else help pay it who wants to do business in the United States and live in some other country? A protective tariff that com pels the foreigner to pay a revenue to the government for the privilege of doing business in this country answers a further purpose than that, of lightening the burdens of a tax upon the American people necessary to raise the revenue to run the affairs of government and meet public expenses. It answers the purpose of establishing new industries in the United States, and giving employment to Ameri can capital and American labor, keeping our money at home and adding to the wealth and prosperity of the country. If a thousand factories could be establish ed in Iowa it would nearly double the population of the state and contribute immensely to the prosperity of all classes. The people of Iowa and the United States .could afford to tax themselves for such a result; when the republican policy of protection accomplishes that result anc compels the foreign manufacturer to pay the tax, they cannot afford to be demo crats. At FRANK BROS.' The well known John Brennan of Siouj City has written a book,' 'Erin Mor" which is now in press and will soon be given tc the public. It is the story of a young Irishman, Andy Dillon, who came tc America to find here the "Erin Mor"—the greater Ireland. Dillon became a demo crat as soon as he landed at New York for no other reason than that his Irish friends were democrats. Later on he commences to study the condititons that have caused the poverty of Ireland and made of America, a land where wide spread poverty is unknown. Chief among the causes for the industrial wreck of Ireland he discovers the British policy of free trade. As a result of his investigations Dillon becomes a republican and a staunch advocate of the American policy of protection. The story shows the circumstances by which the democratic party gained control of the solid Irish vote of the country and the circumstances by which they subsequently lost it. It will be a good book for every one to read, especially every Irish American. We wish, to call your attention to the fact that -our store room is rented and we are compelled to move in a short time.

Any surplus that might have been imported prior to October, 1890, has long ago been exhausted and yet prices are low, and if anything getting lower. In this connection we might mention that Welsh tin plate was imported by New York jobbers soon after the McKinley hill went into effect, at a lower price than it had ever been imported before—showing how completely the American consumer of tin plate was at the mercy of the Welsh manufacturer; also showing that ut least, in seme instances the consumer . docs not, pay the tariff. The Welsh tin plate manufacturer not only paid the tariff himself but in order to retain th-; \merican market and discourage the establishment of tin plate factories in this country, sold his goods to the New York jobber at a lower price than he had ever sold them before and still realized a good profit. Within a few months a dozen tin plate factories will be iii full operation in the United States aud it is not unreasonable to expect that as a result of competition between home manufacturers the price of tin plate will go down like the price of wire naily. The case of wire nails has been so often cited as to need uo further reference. For the year ending March 31, 1891; our duti able imports were $526,199,605; for the corresponding period ending March 31, 1392, they were $£75,585,962. With a difference of over $150,000,000 in favor of the American manufacturer and his employes, prices have not increased to the American consumer. The second r eason assigned by the Courier isunworthy of notice. In the case of quinine the tariff was so as to become in effect a "prohibi- The Emmetsburg Democrat has not ac cepted the REPUBLICAN'S proposition with respect to the Dolliver supplements. The proposition is still open. The Democrat's bluster about the Dolliver tariff speech supplements and how much good it would do the democratic party to have them widely circulated is in queer contrast with its silence when the REPUBLICAN offers to furnish all the supple ments containing the speech free of charge; that the Democrat will agree to circulate. It is better for a newspaper to be honest even in polities and not make a statement of that kind unless it really meuiis it. $5,00 Suits for $3.00 7,00 9.50 10.00 12.50 15.00 18.00 u til, u 4.40 6.00 7.00 9.00 11.50 14.50 SHIRTS. .75 Tennis flannel, for $ .50 1.00 .

Xow some of the democratic papers are glad to use the department, notwithstanding the fact that it is being edited by Mr. Wilson in the interestsof the republican party." The democratic memory is sometimes very uncertain. One of the most astonishing things developed in politics this season is the sudden and complete collapse of the boom of Senator Hill. From having a long start of Grover and everybody else in the race for tho democratic nomination,Hill's boom has been squashed into such insignificance that it is small in comparison with the tiny boonilet of our own Horace Boies.

Siinton's FOR DYSPEPSIA This unfailing remedy for dyspepsia of the most chronic type, is the result of many year's medical research of one of the most noted and eminent medical scholars of the period, Dr. La Verne Swinton. Patent and proprietary nos- ;rums have had no more bitter opponent than ,his most eminent physician.forthe simpln reason that the same dose Is Invariably prescribed to the sufferer, no matter what the temperature of the patient.and no matter what the peculiar- ties of the disease, and this, too, in the face oi ,lie claims that such remedies will cure a man ority of known diseases. Dr. Swinton realized fully to what extei^ dyspepsia, whether mild or chronic by impovf erishing and poisoning the blood, became th'S Mogenitor of numerens diseasas, and therefon' sought diligently for years to discover its truiVjs specific. In this he was successful, but in pre-i scribing his wonderful discovery, ho never overlooked the great medical truth that the symptoms in eacn case, the temperamental differ-]. ences, and even the habits and occupation of \e the sufferer, required not only a difference in " the prescription of his remedy.but also demanded supplemental treatment and dietary directions, varying widely m different cases. The SWINTON MEDICAL Co. send in connection not only intelligently use the remedy, but also properly regulate the diet, and • properly self- administer the supplemental prescriptions suited to the case.
