A southern paper in an angry frame of mind might be excused for treating the race problem as tho Courier does, but what excuse a northern paper offers for denying patent facts, and for practically lending its influence to tho violators of one of tho most sacred rights guaranteed by our government, is notapparent. The Courier professes to bo about tolesid tho western f armers to change political parties. The party it proposes to have thorn support is dealing with a great question In the south. The Courier, discusses that question, and settles it by denying that there is any and if there is tho north is responsible for it. It says the ballot is as free in tho south na in New England. Here Is an extract from a let -. tor by W. P. C. Breckenridge ol Kentucky, read in a public meeting at Charleston, S. C., last year: "It appals thinking men to know, to sec, that the present generation and the rising generation of white men In tho south are taught, In practice, that republican institutions are a failure and that elections are to be carried not by honest voto of a fair majority but by compaignlng which begins with rank intimidation and ends in subterfuge and evasion." ing states. Btrt the most marked change has been in the growing* freedom of discussion of public questions, and in the spirit tod tone of criticism. In form and dross the Keokuk Gate City is following its neighbors, not lees handsome that it has flowered latest. Siit hi all that has gone to wards liberal^ izing and broadening the newspaper work of lOwa the (Sato City h,&? been so easily leader that it seems ftn impertinence to dwell on its external attractions, it is scarcely too much to say that there is not a paper in the state that has not been affected by the inde* pendent spirit, the frank and friendly utterances of its editor. Wha't Emerson was to New England theology4 Mr. Clark has been to that dogmatic newspaper partisanship which devotes its columns to proving false every notion not deflaitely announced in some party platform, or given out In private circulars from some political headquarters. Is it too much to say thnt he has'had Emerson's spirit and to a large extent his brilliant, epigrammatic literary style? The new.form, and new type, and material prosperity of the Gate City deserve all the compliments they have received. But we think that after all its chief attraction is the individuality of its editor, a man who has never been deterred by personal or political considerations from discussing any question however unpopular, or taking any position however radical. May the spirit of Sam Clark long outlive tho now dress of the Gate City. A CUUKENT item is as follows: "The nfew postal cards which will shortly be printed are of two sizes—an Idea of tho postmaster general's—the biggest ones, which have twice tho area of tho present postal cards, being Intended for business communications that cannot very well bo crowded, and for other purposes demanding space. Both kinds have lu the right-hand upper corner, Instead of tho representation of a stamp, a small portrait of General Grant."

"I sought an interview with the eight Republican members of the committee on Ways and means more than five months ago—to be exact, on the 10th day of February. I endeavored to convince them that It would be expedient and Wise to leave to the president as the treaty making power, an opportunity to sea what advantageous arrangements of reciprocal trade could be affected. I was unable to persuade tho committee, to take my View. I mention this circumstance now because it has beon charged.ln.many quarters that tfie suggestion for reciprocity came too late.

Does the Courier dispute that Mr. Breckenridge is an authority, or that he knows what ho is talking about?

If this is not satisfactory to the Courier wo take pleasure In adding tho following comment made by tho Charleston News and Courier, the leading paper of tho south: "AH expedients for tho solution of tho problem whlcli are not grounded In tho spirit of absolute Justice between man and man or race and race will full to tho ground." And even another sentence from Mr. Breckenridge may bo of value: "Thoir future development," he says, sneaking of tho darkles, "is necessarily de- i/undont upon tho good will und tho conscience of the white people among whom they arc placed." But the Courier caps the climax of its sickly attempt to palliate tho crimes against tho negroes by saying that they should never have been enfranchised. Supposing that is true, how does that affect their right to vote now that they are citizens? Even if thero wore anything in the Courier's complaint—a complaint long since abandoned by even tho southerners themselves, and proven groundless by tho vapid progress tho negro has mode wherever he has had a chance—how docs that warrant a paper, which pretends to Btund for democratic principles, in excusing a violation of that primary democratic right of every human being to participate in tho government under which ho lives? A defense of defrauding the negro of his voto, on the ground that ho should havo never become a citizen comes with poor grace from a papar which can publish columns of Thomas Jefferson's pleas for tho equality and liberty of every human being. It isprotty poor consolation, too, for thoso. republicans who oppose tho enactment of lawa putting southern elections into the hands of tho national authorities, to And a denial of wrongs made by northern papers, which tho southerners admit, and to Und Instead OUR esteemed "Courier is sure the silver bill Is a bad thing because tho Iowa Loan company contracts for payment in any money except silver. The Courier Is a funny democrat. Is It not a primary principle of free government that a man may contract for what he pleases I Tho Iowa Loan company has had that clause In Its mortgages for years. It has tho samO right to contract for gold that tho Courier has to take oats and eggs on subscription. No fanner need to borrow and agree to pay in gold if ho don't want too, however. Thoro will bo planty of silver to loan. Under tho new law tho silver dollar is maintained as a standard of value. Under tho law all the silver from tho American mines will bo used as money. Under the new law a silver dollar will pay every debt that calls for money. It is good for taxes, 'for every obligation to the government, for everything a man owes, unless ho expressly stipulates that ho will pay gold, or corn, or potatoes, or rotten oggs. Under tho now law silver bullion is already so near gold In value that free coinage of all silver will soon bo reached. Every democrat In congress voted against this law. Docs tho Courier deny that President Cleveland opposed tho uso of silver in any form as money] Does it deny that Senator Heck, that staunch Kentucky democrat, proposed in tho senate to impeach Dan. Manning because he refused to use silver to pay public debts? Tho Courier has often praised tho UPPEII DBS MOINES for criticising republican measures. Wo should llko to bo able to return tho compliment, but the Courier is posing now us a hide-bound party organ. Tho Courier's idea of independence is too much on tho Jug handle order. Brace up, es teemed coadjutor, and quit apologizing for mere partisan deception. THE Minnesota republicans endorsed Ulalne's Idea in their platform. "Fon tho sake of the American author who Is now robbed, for tho sako of the foreign author who Is now plundered, for tho sake of that vast body of people who read books In tho United States, and upon whom we now force all the worst and cheapest stuff thnt tho presses of tho world pour forth, a bill for International copyright ought to bo passed.

It is an illustration by Birch to tho serial story "Lady Jane," and shows tho former dancing master, who has become a greeiigrocer, recalling his triumphs in teaching tho pretty heroine tho elaborate steps in vogue during his youth. Tho story iUclf is delightful. Some of tho summery features are " Tho White Mountain Coaching Parade" of decorated tally-hos In competition for prizes, described in a sketchy way by Helen Marshall North; "A Lesson of the Sea," by W.

A Curious Watch. Mrs. A. J. Welch of Lu Verne is tho owner of a watch that is a veritable curiosity, according to tho News. It is of tho old bull's-eye pattern, and was bought in London 200 years ago by a paternal ancestor of tho lady in whoso possession it now is, having never been out of tho family during the twenty decades that have elapsed since it was new. It is about an inch and a half in diameter and nearly an inch thick, and tho movement is what is generally called "chain movement." The case is a thing apart from tho watch, being simply a kind of motalic box into which tho watch fits whon being carried. The key is of the crank pattern, tho same as is used in winding a weight clock, and is attached to a "fob-chain," to whiah Is appended the " seal" of the owner. It would seem that in yo olden times when a watch was repaired the repairer placed within tho outside case a small piece of paper bearing his name and the date thereon. Several of these papers worp found within the case of the old watch in question, tho oldest being that of tho year 1828, and tho latest 1847. There is no second hand, and outside of tho Roman numerals appears a row of figures from 0 to 00. This anclont timopiece is now silent, "though it ticked while nations altered." It is a quaint old relic of the long ago, tho counterpart of which is perhaps not in America. Mrs. Welch also has in her possession some chinaware that has been in the family for more than a century. makes some fine ware, but it imports the raw article and does the finishing. And now it is proposed to raise this tax on the people from 65 per cent, in the interests of Hhls firm and a few other minor . institutions. Protection has gone to seed when the whole people are taxed in any such manner for something that isn't a success when they get it." This merchant is a republican In politics, ' ClinrKcd with Fraud.

NEW YORK, July 20.— Ex-Senator Dwight M, Sabin of Minnesota was at tho Fifth Avenue hotel today. Mr. Sabin has always beon a good republican, but ho thinks tho party leaders at Washington have made a mistake, and does not hesitate to say so. Ho was chairman of tho republican national convention in 1884, which nominated Blalno for president. "Every where I havo been, east and west," said Mr. Sabin, "I find that the in a supply of goods and ship] ties. He "stood in" with , . , conservative business men are opposed to tho passage of the Lodge bill. They believe that it is a mistake and will do a great deal of harm. While I presume it Is intended to apply the measure to all sections of tho country alike. I can see nothing in tho situation to justify its passage." "Howls the McKinley bill regarded northwest?"

Recognizing revolt iu tho south in behalf of liberty and Justice, popular government and popular rights, it is a matter of minor concern in what name the battles are fought and won. Wo welcome first growth and spread of power of republican principles, WoWdlally approve tho purpose of the republicans fn congress to so amend aud improve the pension laws as to make further and more generous provision for union soldiers, their widows, parents and children: and we yet believe the day Is not fur distant when a general service pension law should and will be passed. We express our abhorrence of all trusts and trade conspiracies of ovory kind intended to destroy competition and create aud perpetuate monopolies, aud wo call for the enactment and enforcement of both federal aud stato laws to completely exterminate such iniquitous and. dangerous combinations and to prevent tholr further organization. , „.

In tremulous semitones, plaintive as the "last sigh of the Moor," you solicit•• forglvenos; and she—no, leg parden, oho does not forgive you, but with a scowl that reminds you of tho most vindictive of the Don's tormentors, she passes on, thinking daggers,' but saying nothing. If you wish to insult a man without imperiling your personal safety, disarm him in advance with this saving clause, as thus: "Beg your pardon, sir, but what you say can not bo the fact; it is utterly impossible." The deprecatory prefix is llko a whlfl of chloroform before tho pulling of a tooth. Under the Influence of a full doso of it we have known a regular fire-eater to endure the lie circumstantial and even the lie direct without wincing. "If" is a good pain-killer in some oauos, but you may throw any quantity ot moral vitriol in tho face of a person you dislike, with perfect impunity, if you accompany the aspersion with plenty of "betr-your-par.- dons."
