The Upper Des Moines, THE UPPER DBg MODfESi ALGOKA. loWA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBBM 12,1880. & WARREN, A Pt.AllX DtTfY. The Chicago Evening Journal, one of the most conservative republican papers, points the plain duty of the republicans while yet they have control of congress. It is to reform the McKinley tariff. Causes innumerable may be assigned for the sweeping defeat in this election, but they deceive no one. The people have passed on McKinleyism and have written over it, " tried and found wanting." The republican party boaste of its ability to reform within Itoelf. Does it Want more conclusive proof that public sentiment demands the test? It yet has power to accept the popular verdict, to carry out its oft- tti m repeated pledges to modify and reduce the tariff, to adopt a bona fide reciprocity policy, and to place the incoming democratic congress where it must enact free trade or leave the tariff untouched. Either is disastrous to that party in 1802. This policy involves humiliation and the overthrow of some reputed leaders, but failure to adopt it means Cleveland in 1892 unless the democrats make some stupendous blunder, and this tho present tariff makes almost impossible. Tho obstacle Mills met tho republicans have removed. As f . a democrat he could not touch the sugar | purpose, tariff, nor meddle with other southern interests. And there crept in the fatal cured at the greatest profit, It affords the widest field to intelligence and enterprise. It is what Jefferson declared it—the mainstay of free government— and this remarkable movement to re^ establish it in public esteem deserves at least friendly consideration, in the field of practical politics it remains to be seen what the farmers' organization will accomplish. It Is at present safe to say that it will attract the serious attention of all to the burdens and dis criminations under which the farmer has been struggling duriag our remarkable craze for factories at any cost, regardless of what the people are taxed to maintain them, and regardless likewise of the prospect of possible profit in the future. ^^ The State Register says " meritorious discussion" is not what the bar move- introduction lfi*t haf e opened to nttn every avenoe of enjoyment and successful study HtedescriptfoM of towel have appeared in the leading newspapers, and have pat Mm in the front rafck of fWeifn correspondents.

The full vote on the given below: in security and got county ticket is tho old tarlff would be judiciously cut down weakness of his proposed reform. But wherever u coul d be done and that we would not seo any increased duties on anything. My opinion is that the republicans must return to their old platform previous to the last Chicago convention and repudiate tho platform of that convention if they ever wish to hope for success in tho future. If tho republican party docs not backwater on this question it will drive more out of the party who voted the last election." now the tariff on sugar, etc., has been cut down, and while the democrats could not have done this themselves they can leave it done and not alienate southern support, while in addition they can make other and radical changes In the schedules that will gain them strength in tho north and west. Nothing but republican action in tho short session this winter can remove from tho democratic congress of next year, a splendid opportunity for a wise revision. And when it is considered that in that congress for the first time a majority of tho democrats will be northern and western men, and that in both houses there will bo tho ablest leaders of their party, It is idle to hope for any marked failure on their part to seize that opportunity. It remains with tho closing session of this congress to determine tho future of tho party. If it thousands for it at J. L. Smith's majority It may be taken for granted that the people don't regard Vermont's maple sugar business as tho most important national industry.

If with some of Mr. Blaino's sagacity it foresees an avalanche and wisely avoids it, it will accept the popular verdict, fulfill the pledges it made through tho tariff commission of 1882, pare down all tho schedules, and turn over to tho democrats a measure fairly representing tho liberal and yet protective sentiment of tho people. JAAIIMEUS IN POLITICS. Among tho surprises of this remarkable election the success attending the farmers' alliance movement is easily first. Tho votes in Kansas, Nebraska, Arch-bishop Ireland of St. Paul is one of tho leading Catholics whose Americanism is unquestioned. Last summer he endorsed tho public school and compulsory education in an address, and a Catholic paper said he was called to Rome to answer for it In an interview with the Pioneer Press tho independent priest says in reply "Tho whole telegram is false. It is one of tho hughcst falsehoods of the season I imagine it is in some .manner a political trick suggested in the heat of the political battle now waging in Wisconsin. The Catholic Citizen should not have lowered itself to publish such rot and contribute to bringing tho holy father into disfavor with tho people of America by linking his name with a purely civil matter. Rome has not condemned and never will condemn compulsory education.

The official returns will be needed to settle many of the close contests, but enough has been decided up to date to give the democrats in the next congress by from 125 to 150 majority in the lower house. They will also gain senators in There was no democratic tidal Tfravfi but a republican tidal wave which swept everything before it. What, now, shall be the republican party's course? Simply this, that it must live up to what are Its real pfln* ciples. The McKinley bill must Hot stand unchanged. It must be modified in almost its every feature. A national caucus of the party has been held; its leaders must obey the dictates .Of that caucus. There Is no occasion fof delay until a democratic congress has assembled and a republican senate giv* en assent to the changes required. The republican party is the party of the people, and one of reform within Itself.

Reduction, not an increase of the tariff; reciprocity, with many nations— these have been declared for, Our democratic friends have a right to be jubilant, for the tidal wave has carried them to temporary fortune. They were not the wave— that was made up of protesting republicans— but they rode upon it and are entitled to the vantage they have gained. But no thinking man expects from the democratic party the legislation for which the country has indicated! its desire. A democratic congress not long ago essayed a revision of the tariff and failed miserably. No sectional party, no par-. ty made up as is the democacy, can accomplish what is required. The republican party, corrected and aroused, must meet the emergency. It has never failed in ono. There's No Use Denying the Truth. Ellert's Extract of Tar and Wild Cherry for Coughs and Colds.

The UPPER DES MOINES has no intention of reviewing the outcome of the election so far as county matters went. But in justice to Mr. Quarton it desires to notice the circular sent out by Geo. E. Bovle over the county too late for answer. It was as follows: Attention, Republicans! W. B.

The southern states have gone solidly democratic with big gains. The most surprising results, however, are in the west and north.
