You can't do that without dropping the protective feature. The very essence of protection 18 legislation for special interests." Admit that protection is for "special interests," it is entirely possible that public prosperity is enhanced by it. Building roads, improving harbors, fortifying sea coasts, etc., are all primarily beneficial to the immediate parties concerned. But they are none the less properly public works. Maintaining schools is for the special benefit Only of those with children to educate. But it is none the less proper to tax those who have hone. An extreme application of this principle is the tax for railways, and yet it has been universally upheld as a proper public burden. Of course protection is a tax on the «om- munity for the manufacturers. If manufactures cannot be maintained without it, if the resources of the country would lie undeveloped without it, if the opportunities for labor would be unopened without it, then is it or is it not a public benefit, and properly a public tax? The Sentinel cannot quote an American statesman of the first rank in tho negative. Of course this is not an issue now, when even Hamilton is repudiated by tho monopolists who are trying to divert a decent public sentiment in favor of homo industries into channels of plunder for a few millionaires. Tho republican party is invited to increase protection for " special Interests" which do not minister hut are directly detrimental to public wellfiire. It is asked to oppress agriculture, to rob labor, to destroy commerce, in order that more may be given to those who have fat- toned on the tribute already levied. Tho ways and moans committee has been beset by tho paid lobbies of tho beneficiaries of a Chinese wall theory that subserves no public interest. That is why a republican protest is going up all over tho west. Protection as a principle of taxation IB no more in dispute than tho value and services of railroads were two years ago, when the people demanded that corporations be controlled. All republicans believe in doing all that is needed to properly protect American business interests. But all republicans are not willing to be led by the nose to tho shambles of their own undoing, because of tho short- yotrf.views ftf6 fcorreet in regard to the McKinlef bill." Dollivei- wrttte: "As to the Mcfflnley bity I am SflBy, sure it will be greatly, ttrddifieo* before it reaches the president." Spencer has some big horse races and bicycle races June 17-19. Last year they had the best races given in northern Iowa* and this year promise as good. A flowing well has been struck at Storm Lake. The Pilot says a three foot augur was sunk 14 feet when the water filled the hole and began pouring out. Stev, Berry, who filled tha Episcopal sighted selfishness of a combination of eastern monopolists. OUR republican neighbor in Blue Earth, tho Post, says with vigor: "Tho handwriting is on tho wall and the party leaders will find that tho volao of McKinloy IB not the voice of God nap the voico of the people." SENATOB ALLISON said of tho McKinley bill i "I have hesitated about criti- cising tho bill as long as it was in tho house; but now that it has coma over to tho senate I shall advocate tho reduction of duties on every article so far as is consistent with tho proper protection of American industry against foreign rivals." pulpit here some weeks, preached his farewell sermon at Esthervllle lost Sunday, fie returns to Ireland, where he has fallen heir to an estate. A barn belonging to Geo. H. Shellenberger burned near Humboldt Saturday, valued at $4,600, insurance $1,200. Shellenberger was the pitcher of tho old Modoc ball club that played in Algona. The loth semi-annual session of the Iowa Sheriffs' association will be held at Spirit Lake, June 18-19. The Marshals' association will meet at the same place in joint convention with the sheriffs, Humboldt has offered the old college building there and the grounds for a location for the adult blind. Humboldt would be a good place, and the offer is very generous, as the property is valued at $50,000. Lightning struck tho barn of a Mr. Kelley in West Bend last Tuesday, killing a horse. A cow was also killed for a Mr. Wright, and we learn a horse four miles west of the town was also killed. West Bend is evidently very attractive. The Fort Dodge spiritualists are corresponding with Dr. Bothmal, an eastern medium of considerable celebrity, with a view to getting him to give a series of lectures in that city. This medium gives public lectures in broad day light. It is claimed that one of his most wonderful manifestations Is receiving messages on a telegraphic instrument, messages sent without the aid of electricity. COUNTY BOARD'S DOINGS.

The Journal is a great paper, regardless of how tho census turns out. But tho Sioux City census will bo nil right. is a call in Iowa today for a broader, moro tolerant spirit than has prevailed in tho immediate post," says the Council Bluffs Nonpareil. " Imbued with that spirit are such papers as tho Sioux City Journal, Keokuk Gate City, Ottumwa Courier, Algona Ui'i'Eii DKS MOINKS, Cedar Rapids Gazette and the Republican, Atlantic Telegraph and Messenger, Washington Press, and many others that might bo named. It is not a question of doubt. Their influence will be felt, Is being felt now. It would be a foolhardy attempt to try to stem such a current as this. It cannot bo done and it would work irreparable harm If it could." _ THE DCS Moinos Capital very truly remarks that there is a difference in people, and then Illustrates it: "A Kansas man will stand in poverty and rags amid the rnin and ashes of his third copn prop, burned up by tho hot winds of July, and swear to tho passing stranger that Kansas is tho best state in the union, while the Iowa man who gets hut 40 bushels of corn to the acre one season, when he wanted 75, and had 60 tbo year before, will go off on a visit, dressed in his best suit of clothes, and tell every man on tho train that Iowa is too dead to skin." THE Sioux City Journal is right about national olo<jtifln lows, There is pp. better way in this country than to rely on local self-government. It may have its evils, hut it has also its compensations. SAM CLARK writes in tho Gate City: Gov. KirUwood was a member of Gar- flold's cabinet and he has lately said that Garflold's administration was a unit in its purpose of intending to force u reduction of the tariff. Aud tho short admln- Btrution of Gurfleld was in great favor In Iowa while it lusted. Senator Harlan who was lu Mr. Lincoln's cabinet and is a very groat und wise man and a republican loader whom all Iowa honors said in tho last campaign that tho ultimate end of protection was to promote commerce aud tho cheapness of commodities and that with this view it was probably time to reduce duties." Mr, Clark concludes by saying: "For one republican wo do not euro what the Sioux City platform may say about it we propose to light this newfangled McKinley doctrine In season and out of season as wholly wrong and objectionable in every view of It." THE DOB Moinea News auyu H will go into tho legislative campaign next year on a platform demanding equality of taxation. What is tho News going to propose as a settlement ot this question! Equality of taxation is a pretty big and complicated problem. ______________ IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. At Chicago parties huvo tested the Eru- metsburg well und say it U all right.

Brooks Insists that their are hundreds in the new counties of Kansas whose condition is in no way better than that of his family. The Crop Report, Hie state signal service report ending; June 6, is in part as follows: " All parts of the state, except a harrow belt across the southeast corner, received copious showers, and many counties report a very large excess, causing damaging floods in some localities. Following are some of the excessive measurements: Harrison county, 10.48 inches; Crawford, 9.80; Carroll, 4.82; Qreen, 5.76; Sioux. 4.00; Boons 8.00; Story, 4.26: Marshall, 5.00; Delft; ware, 6.70;.Black Hawk, 4.09; Fayette, 6.78; Sac, 3.05; Wayne, 8.00; Monoria, 8.80; Montgomery. 2.50; Gruhdy, 4.60. In three-fourths 01 the state the rainfall was from one to nine inches above nor- nial. The heaviest damage from floods occurred in Pottawattamie and Harrison counties. The general condition of crops throughout the state is materially improved. The loss from washing out and overflow will not figure heavily in reducing the aggregate production of the state. Small grain crops and pastures are doing fairly well. Corn will require the most favorable conditions in the future to mature 70 per cent, of last year's bountiful crop.

B. HOFIUS, Auditor. Hats Off to Town Men. Our old professor of Algona college times, O. H. Baker, writes an interesting description of how Iowa men stand in foreign parts: The writer was recently in a state 800 miles and more from home, and falling in company with a stranger of lino intelligence and extended information, wo entered into desultory conversation, "What state are you from?" he asked. "From Iowa," said I, with a feeling of pride that shone out of my face. The stranger faced mo, and bowing, removed his hat, saying: 'I always take off my hat to an Iowa man." I acknowledged the compliment, not us personal, but as a just tribute to the people of my state, and asked him on account of what particular virtue were wo indebted to him for this show of profound respect. He replied, "Iowa stands today the bright particular star in the union galaxy. She is the cynosure of all eyes. Her people have the least illiteracy, and the uost schools in America; that means in the whole world, They handle questions of politics with suou nerve and intelligence as commands the admiration of oven their opponents, Corporations and monopolies ai<o treated with justice, but made to feel the ivpn Jjuiia within the glove. Iowa citizens hold the material and moral interests of the masses above that of a few saloon keepers and brewers who wish to fatten themselves by debauching the people. The chief glory of Iowa Is the stand which her citizens have taken against the worst enemy of the human raeo—alcohol. I ilrst met Iowa men in oainp and on the battlefield. They fought like heroes. I found them true as stool and us generous us they wore bruvo. In the national congress they have boon grandly presented by such men as Harlan, Wright, Kasson, Allison and Wilson, Iowa has made |i v°o- ord in war and in peace seepM to none, and in many respect? stiuulg in the ilrst place among the states of the union, Those live nomo of the reasons why I always take off »ny hat to an Iowa man." It was never a greater honor to bo tv Roman citizen than it is today to bo an "Iowa man," to Thoir Iowa Jlomws. ST. JOSEPH, Mo., May JO,—-Special to the Heruld: George Brooks, his wife, and five children, ranging in ago from four to 14 years arrived in St. Joseph thin morning, having walked from Mftii- on county, Kansas, over 800 miles, since tho 1st of tho month.
