ALGOKA, IOWA. NOVEMBER 19, 1890, The Upper Des Moines, BY 1NOHAM & WARBEN. CASE, hi a moment of mental calm, and with his talnd in even balance, the editor of the Republican sent the State Register to account of local politics. We give it below in one column.

We give the main part of that in the Cther column. The discriminating and astonished render will need only to compare the two reports to discover that we have a veritable, living Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in our midst: I Nov. 7.—| Republican: It in dlj day night before election with the dein-1 known Ida Grove editor, Qeo.

Newspapers do not sway public sentiment at will nor cause tho political overturn of hundreds of congressional districts, and no one knows that so well as the editors who make the charge. All newspapers do is to road tho signs and predict what public opinion will be. If the Chicago Tribune has predicted a great eruption, and it has come, tho Tribune has done a great service to its party. Instead of crying out against it, there aro a lot of editors who can well afford to study the facts on which its judgment is basod and take new bearings for the future. It is not the Tribune nor its low tariff contemporaries that have killed the McKinley gallons made in nil, 800 of which was of his own culture." Wo don't want to toll the last story; but come up and see Olof Johnson when you talk about sorghum. THOSE SUPPLEMENTS. How Quickly n Linr May be Chased Is Shown by "What Into Ills Hole fellows. A short horse is soon curried, and a Ipalgn, and tho democratic party through the aid of Its Journal Icratlc part; , 1 of ll istlc allies— Istlc alllos—papers like the Cedar Rapids Ga- xetto and the UPPER pus MOINES—has misrepresented the republican Idea of protection and misrepresented the McKinley bill until It has achieved the greatest democratic victory In history. The mugwump press was no unimportant factor In defeating tho republican party. THO UPPISH DBS MOINEH can claim its share of glory with tho demo- jcrnts for the downfall wf the republican party I in this county. But not satisfied with leaving the county committee and the UPPER DES MOINES "in ono rod burial blent," (in the local report), tho postmaster goes on (for local consumption) to illustrate tho conciliatory spirit ho speaks of issue. It is tho growing intelligence of tho people that did the business, and tho man who at this date cannot read the signs is a blind leader of the blind. KOSSUTH county last year paid out in total expenses for her public schools §04,353. With 13,190 people this is an average tax of nearly $5 ahead for man, woman and child. With an average attendance of 2,117, it is an average expense of over $30 per student. This is a liberal allowance. It is liberal taxation. And yet our report shows 4,007 persons of school age in the county, and n, school enrollment of 3,617. Less than half the persons of school age in attendance, and less than two-thirds of those enrolled. This does not signify of course that one-half or one-third or probably near that number of children are not attending school. But it does signify that a large number are not at- short lie is soon disposed of. The Republican says: "It is well known that the stato central committee sent to the UPPER DES MOINES a supply of tho McKinley bill supplements." Tho following document from Clarkson Bros, shows up this statement: Ingham & Warren, Algona: To Stato Register, Dr. To 600 tariff supplements, $2. Paid. CLAIIKSON Biios. The Republican says: "The UPPER DES MOINES refused to send them to its subscribers." Every supplement - was given out by good workers, and we went to Mayor Jones to get copies for people who came in after ours were gone. Under the last head come the raisec duties on all kinds of woolens, linen glass, cutlery, tinplate, " natural mineral waters," etc. The greatest and tho most inexcusable blunder of the McKinley bill is that it adds largely'to the cost of the clothing of all the people of the United States. Those who drafted and forced through that measure did not seem to know or caro that the third largest item of household expense— coming next after food and shelter— is clothing, and that to make it dearer is to add sensibly to the burdens of every person. Nor did they reflect that as most of the purchases of textile fabrics are made by women, who care nothing about po- The Republican says : "The Republican ordered and paid for its supply " We have reason to believe that Senator Chubb offered to, and actually did put of bis own pocket half the co the supplements sent out by the Repub- . — .

Senator McMillan of Michigan noticed the fact too late, and ascribes Tm™ I *^ e re P ub lican defeat in part to angry »wa I wives asking their husl f and8 to * 0 & against the McKinley bill and the men who made it. And until the act is changed they will continue to be its implacable enemies. Other portions of the bill should be only conditionally repealed or modified For instance, the extra tax of $2 a pound on wrapper leaf tobacco should knows that the democracy is so constituted that it cannot so legislate properly when in power as to secure justice to all classes or the greatest good to the greatest number. It looks to its own party, flexible, reasoning, to obtain the ends best for this republic. Already tho republican press of the country has widely indorsed the Journal's attitude. Even when differing from it as to immediate party policy, i.t recognizes the sense and honesty of its position. No better verdict is wished than that of the majority of such a jury, IN THE HANDS OF BAD MEN. Council Bluffs Nonpareil: The truth is that the republican party had got into the hands of men who tried to lead it astray. The policy that Messrs. Reed and McKinley and Cannon tried to fasten onto the republican party was opposed to and antagonistic to the whole spirit and purpose of republican- .sm. It was not a progressive party; it rvos retrogressive and reactionary. Mr. 31aine told the republican leaders of ihe house that it was so and he was aughed to scorn; he was ignored. Elaine waited and his triumph has some. Blaine saw the whole trend of ;he people was away from higher tariff md towards a wider trade abroad. Mr. McKinley and Mr. Reed formulated a Jolicy that was utterly opposite to all this. They succeeded in forcing it on the party. But it was not republican ism. Is it any wonder the people refused to follow; that they administered to the republican party the most overwhelming and crushing defeat it has ever known? • t't M'lONLEYISM A BLUNDER.

Carey has made her annual report of the schools of the county to the state superintendent and the figures should interest every tax payer. Qvef" half the taxes of the county go for schools, and; the teachers alone during the past year have received nearly $40,^ 000. The report is very complete, and we give a full resume of it. The yeaf- it covers ended Oct. 1. There are now in the county 136 un- graded schools and 19 rooms in graded schools. There are 59 male and 186 female teachers; 136 school • hours valued at $80,710, having $3,922 of apparatus, $1,627 of books, and surrounded by 677 live trees. The number of persons of school age is 4,607, while the average enrollment- in school is but 3,617, and the average attendance is 2,117. Considerably less than half the total number of persons of school age are numbered in tho attendance, and not two-thirds of thoso enrolled. Those figures are significant, and point conclusively to the need of compulsory education. Of the teachers examined during the year, 23 males and 40 females hold first grade certificates; 17 males and 68 females second second; 4 males and 46 females third grade; while 7 males and 82 females were rejected. The numbers examined are 61 males, 226 females, average age of males 26 years and of females 29. Miss Carey has visited 148 schools, making 223 visits, and has drawn but $1,067.60 salary, when $1,200 is allowed if the limit is reached. She has saved the county nearly $200 out of her own pocket. The report for the high schools shows that Algorm pays her principal $1,200, and the assistants $44 per month; Bancroft', $585 for principal, and $38 per to pay cost of lican.

Then there will not be a Latin-American port that Mr. Blaine will not be able to open to American products free of tax. Raw wool should be dealt with in the same way.

To preserve the balance wo .give the two side by side: tho state—aro enough to suggest the need of prompt attention to the matter of school attendance. Peter A.

Wo publish in full in another column a remarkable editorial from tho Chicago iribuno on tho present situation, and shorter comments from tho leading republican papers of tho stato and nation. If anyone doubts that tho sentiment of tariff reduction und extended commerce is gaining ground, ho can satisfy himself by reading- those outspoken comments. "That's right," said Lesher shaking his head wisely. " I know some of your Chicago newspaper men there. They've got more advertising than they can handle, enough to make the fortune of an eastern newspaper. But collections close," "That's right," wagged his head. ' is myself." said Lesher.

The McKinley law should be amended also so as to offer the Canadians the reciprocity outlined in the amendment" submitted by Senator Sherman, but withdrawn by him because it was too late for tho senate to adopt it. Such an offer on the part of this country would help the liberals to knock out the tories at next year's election, and would result speedily in the removal of all commercial barriers between the two countries. The first effect of this politic action concerning the unpopular McKinley tariff would bo to reunite the republican party, and it can never again win until it is. It would placate the deeply dissatisfied rank and file before temporary disaffection had ripened into set hostility. It would restore the confi- THE DUTY IS PLAIN. Minneapolis Journal: The duty of the republican leaders is plain. It will will not be neccessary to make a new tariff. What is commendable or harmless in the McKinley bill should stand- but, in accordance with its pledges to the country in 1S88, the party is bound to pass reduction bills touching excessive and monopolistic features of the act, so that the benefits of the protective duties may be more equitably distributed, such changes as are made to go into effect from six to eight or ten HI' T.Uml-ira TY«rtM*T~« ~tL j.1. ° or twelve months after the passage of the bills.
