Senator Davis, tho able and independent republican of Minnesota, led the aggressive fight against tho binding twine trust in tho senate. To his untiring efforts was largely due the defeat of its attempt to farther intrench itself In tariff protection. In his opening speech he showed that 60,000 tons of twino are used annually at tho cost of two cents for every bushel of wheat, and at a cost of 89,811,200.for tho entire crop raised in tho United States. Of this §4,000,000 is a bonus, or gratuity, levied by a corrupt combination. Ho did not mince matters when he said: "Mr. President, horo Is a combination of Interests of forty-two manufacturing companies in this country, seven or nine in Canada, banded together by the cohesive force of a common Interest, superior to all law, which Is strong enough to bo in presence in tho Philippine Islands, where ono- haWof this raw material Is produced, and dictate, limit, and control the price there; to do tho same thing in Yucatan, whore the other half of tho raw material of this product is raised, and dictate and dominate and rule tho price there, having a committee at New York to purchase for all, and another committee of three representing every one of these corporations to limit tho output and fix the price, dictating everything; as secure above legislative control as tho clouds that float above us', In need of no law, in need of no protection whatever, amply and fully able to protect themselves, to spoliate the world; coming hero and say- Ing that they will shut up their mills and cease production unless they can receive this additional protection of \% cents per pound." The eastern senators who defended the twine trust claimed that it was organized only to control tho raw material, but not the selling price. This lame excuse was refuted again and again, and still all but a few western republicans voted to increase tbe tariff ut the behests of the lobby. Senator Davis truthfully said in his closing speech: "Mr. President, not ono statement that I have made on this subject has been substantially contradicted; every word that has been said against what I have uttered has been in palliation, in confession, and avoidance. There is no competition on this continent today between tho manufacturers of binding twine. With one or two exceptions evory binding twine factory in this country and in Canada IB in a combination THE renomination of J. H. Sweeney in the Fourth district is a deserved vindication of one of Iowa's best men. We know nothing of Col. Sweeney's troubles over postofflce patronage—what interests he may havo conciliated or estranged in distributing the spoils—but we do know that in the Iowa senate no man ever did bettor service to the state than ho, and that as congressman he has taken a good position at Washington for a first-termer. Ho is a clean, honest, and capable man, and should be re-elected. If factional disturbances over patronage can defeat him for Walt. H. Butler, it will be a more striking illustration than wo have yet had of tho folly of attempting to make party capital out of postofllcos. CONGRESSMAN DOLLIVER in an interview published Sunday.says binding twino should be on tho free list. SENATOR ALLISON sat down on the notion that flax straw would be benefited by high-priced binding twine when he said in the senate: "I know—at least I think I mow—that not one partible of the flax that is produced in Iowa, the Dakotaa, or Minnesota pan bo utilized for fiber if it is util- zed for seed." JOHN P. DUNCOMDE'S Port Dodgo Chronicle docs not support Mr. Woods. It also- announces that Mr. Duucombo will drop politics entirely. BEAlt OASE ENiilD, The Father takes »160 rtnd rtolltl* qulshes All CiftitH to the Boy.

A settlement was made at Eagle Grove last week by W. B. Quarton by which his father, in consideration of $150, releases all claim to him, and Mrs. Beal has sole charge of his affairs, The story of his kidnapping was fully told at the time of the divorce proceedings. The decree of court gave him to his mother until he should be 12 years old, and then to his father. The boy came to tho fateful age a few weeks ago, and was token bV his father to Eagle Grove, where with his new Wife he how lives. But tho boy did not like his home, walked to Qoldflold, and there took the cars to Livermore, where he stayed some two weeks, while his father was hunting for him. A letter from his mother sent him back, when he received a vigorous dressing down for playing truant. But Mr. Beal really did not want tho boy, having offered at first to take §600 nna give him up. Mrs. Beal was willing to give $160, and tho Tho settlement Tho boy gives promise of a bright and useful career, BANCROFT, Sept, 22.— There was a Fakir sociable at the school house hall Wednesday evening.

The per cents, and averages given compared with the Kossuth reports show that we are to the front. The report for cord Is: There Is a decline in condition of three per cent, since lost report, although, many report a full average crop and ripening rapidly. If frost does not Injure the crop the state will produce near 80 per cent, of the bushels harvested in 1889. The condition reported by one thousand and ten correspondents is 70i per cent.

Speaking again of the absurdity of iidoptinq 1 laws against trust conspiracies and then allowing them to come with unblusing front and demand protection, ho concluded: ' Now, Mr. President, I said a few moments ago, and I Insist, that this is not a question as to whether this aged Infant ought to be protected. The question is whether wo should preserve and uphold the law which wo ourselves have made. That this Janus-faced concern is a conspiracy in every aspect in which it can bo looked upon within the purview of the act of congress of July 2, 1800, there Is no manner of doubt. That it falls within this penal statute which we ourselves passed a few weeks ago I believe no lawyer can question, if ho knows tho facts. I think this statute should bo honored and enforced. Grant protection to this monopoly and— k • " Our strong statutes Stand, like the forfeits In a barber's shop, As much lu mock as mark." * THE great Sioux City corn palace opens tomorrow and continues till Oct. 10. It is on a scale of magnificence never before attempted and is undoubtedly much finer than ever before. In a private letter Dr. Ingham describes ono feature: "Tho dome represents tho globe, and North and South America ore worked In colored corn on the sldo facing the Garrotson. On tho map of North America Is Iowa in corn of another color, and In its appropriate place is Sioux City" A very fine description has beon written byj. H. Quick, well known In Kossuth, and scattered over tho state. Speaking of the palace ho says: "It will bo 304 by 204 feet in size, twice as large as last year's palace. Its stylo will be graceful in the highest degree. Its doc- orations will exceed anything of Its kind ever seen. It will be filled with exhibits from all ovcr.tho country. It will havo an auditorium seating 1,200 people. Trained musicians will occupy tho stage. Its ventilation will bo perfect, but daylight will bo excluded and ft will bo lighted by thousands of electric lights." In another place our old professor waxes eloquent and says: " Shut your eyes and enter and from the evidence of your nostrils you will imagine yourself In some great barn filled with fragrant hay and nqw-garnored grain. Trust your ears and you will imagine It a workshop from tho constant tupping of innumerable hammers aud the buzzing of saws. Open your eyes and you exclaim, 'It is fairyland I" 1 Among all tho attractions thus far devised for fairs and expositions tho corn palace idea stands easily first, and all who have never seen ono should not fall to visit Sioux City. Those who have soon them will go without urging. AVOOWS I-OH CONGBESS. Tho democratic nomination of a candidate for congressman is more worthy of note for the manner than the matter of it. Mr, Woods is a genial gentleman and has boon a good legislator, but in the overwhelming republican majority of tho Tenth district much more ambitious politicians would be lost oven with tho most favorable starting out, and as making a serious contest his canvass is scarcely worth discussing. But Mr. Woods does not oven enter the race with u fair start. It is an open secret now that hlu ambition has been bitterly opposed by John P. Duncombe, who has never seen anyone come to the front in Wobstor covnty with equanimity, and who has boon childish in his light against this nomination. At tho committee meeting'at Wobstor City ho was present on a proxy to light Woods, and to tho last bitterly opposed him. He has written a' letter referring to tho farmers' alliance nomination of Woods, in which ho says: „ "How many does it take to nominate u mau for congress 1 A, few disgruntled men., twelve or fifteen in number,' got together here Just before pur convention at Webster City, and not a single man from thirteen counties, representing nobody and nothing, and pretended to nominate Woods as a labor alliance candidate. It was seat off and published in the Louder (which WAS thus Imposed upon) us a nomination to forestall any action of the Webster City convention." What tho roul grievance la at tho ^bottow is not knowp.

Without reciprocity it will bo driven more and more from those markets," SAM.

I.nnclon, Homo from n Vacation, Tolls What Ho Saw. H. S: Ijangdon has returned from his eastern visit, and tells tho samo story about depression on tho farms that has bean so current. Ho was through Massachusetts, Connecticut, and other states, and he says it is a mystery to a western man how they make 'ends meet. Everything in the markets comes from tho west, and outside', the manufacturing centers there is nothing but steady and dull times and quiet. At his old homo u farm of 200 acres under a high state- of cultivation, with houses and barns, sold for $1,000, which in his youth was worth 550 an acre. Money cannot bo borrowed on real estate at all. Aside from the lack of life manifested he had a most enjoyable visit. His health was much recruited at tho sea shore, and his visit at the old homo stead was of course pleasant. Ho picked apples from a tree that has borne for 80 years. He says his earliest boyish re 1 collection is picking apples from that tree, and still it has a pretty large croi each year. Ho returns to Algona will renewed faith in tho west. Ho is satisfied that Iowa is tho favored spot'and that Algona compares favorably with tho rest of tho world so far as he has observed. PEOM THE OODBTY TOWNS. Itninsoy.

But as wo correspondents report the average condition at88i percent., a decrease of Oi per cent, since lost report. The average yields per acre for other crops are: Wheat llf, barley 28$, rye IflKoats 30, hay one and one-half tons.
