THE PUBLIC MUST CONTKOJU The Port Dodge Messenger dissents from the conclusion that manufacturers having accepted the benefits of tariff protection are under any special obli gations to the public. Its position, in a sentence, is that the tariff simply equalizes conditions in this country, and all businesses whether protected or unprotected are as nearly as may be on the same footing, and consequently under the same obligations, Carnegie for instance not properly being subject to special burdens or extraordinary regu- ; lations any more than Marshall Field or the Messenger itself. But the question at once arises, what is the inequality suffered by the manufacturers which protection removes? Is it not the higher wages paid for the same work in this country? And in sustaining the protective tariff does not the public expressly provide for higher wages? And in asking for the tariff do not the manufacturers by implication agree that the American wage scale shall be maintained? And is the public not warranted by this implied agreement in seeing to it that the manufacturer does maintain it? The Messenger is right in saying that the object of protection is to equalize conditions, and put the manufacturer on the same footing with other classes of business men. But protection only equalizes conditions so long as the wages of labor are maintained. If, for instance, Mr. Frick could by breaking down the union of steel workers or by importing laborers or by any other means force wages with impunity to the European level, then protection does not equalize conditions at all, but on the contrary gives the manufacturer a very unfair advantage. This is largely a hypothetical case, for the results of the congressional investigation show that not only are the wages paid in the Carnegie mills very much higher than are paid in foreign countries, but are much higher than workmen in other occupations are getting in this country. Public sympathy with the workmen has been very materially lessened by the publication of the actual and proposed wages over which they are contending. The facts in this particular contest, however, do not affect the general principle involved. The public affords a protective tariff to enable manufacturers to pay a high scale of wages. The manufacturer accepts this public assistance with all the conditions attached. He is under special obligations to the public to pay the high wages, and the public has authority to demand that he do so. In the exercise of this authority it has a perfect right to investigate into the management of any-company, arbitrate between employer and employe, or in any other way enable labor to get the advantage the tariff is intended to give it. Beyond this point the manufacturer stands with the merchant or the newspaper man in so far as any special obligation . on account of the tariff is concerned. ^object of .importance not only to agriculturists, but affects every material interest in the state, and is receiving very general attention throughout other steles of the union." There are 110 pages in Mr. Pope's memorial, all filled with letters and newspaper-comments oh the need of reform in our road system. It will have .not only a material effect in securing recognition at the fair next year, hut will serve also to stimulate such local movements as the coming meeting at Des Moines. SENATOR WASliBUKN'S SPEECH* The exhaustive argument in congress by Senator W. D. Washburn of Minnesota in favor of his bill prohibiting dealing in ".options" and " futures" on boards of trade has been generally distributed over the country and deserves careful perusal. He attributes prevailing low prices of grain to the practice •of selling millions of bushels which have no existence, and denounces in round terms the gambling which never benefits and invariably injures the producer. His argument is supported by statistics and is the most complete statement of the case that has been made. But the most significant paragraph in his speech does not refer di- and those views and traits which they hate In common are very good ones, in * gfreat many other respects we think Cleveland falls far below Harrison, and from time to =tSme we shall point otit these differences." • 4fc- In R G. Cousins the Fifth district chose one of the most brilliant young men of the state for congress. He is an orator, and in the state legislature showed himself a capable man of affairs. He will make a winning canvtsss against any democrat •named.against him. rectly to grain gambling. Senator Washburn is himself a man of wealth and not naturally in sympathy with calamity! tes, and the following paragraph from him is extremely significant: "The millionaires, the ten-millionaires, the forty-millionaires, or the one hundred millionaires, almostwithoutexception, have neither created nor earned their wealth. The 'royal road to wealth' has been through the illegitimate speculation, stock and grain gambling, market wrecking, railroad wreck- Ing, trusts, and the whole family of iniquities that have developed under the nefari- £ou tnet ; h0dS of the exchanges of this And in another equally significant paragraph he confirms the results of the investigations of the New York Tribune as to what has made our millionaires: When Congressman Boatner of Louisiana heard the testimony as to wages in the Carnegie mills, he exclaimed "are the figure* true! Ineveriheardofwagesas high as these before." The wages were as high as $200 a.month for eight hours a day work, and all the men received high wages. The laboring men have not probably had more than their share, nor indeed their full share of the earnings of the Homestead mills, but wages ranging from $1.75 to $8 a day of eight hours cannot be considered low. They are three times as much as are paid for the same work in Europe. The .possibility that Judge Shiras and his brother may sit together on the United States bench is a new one in our history. Both began in Dtibuque, but President Harrison's-appointee went to Pennsylvania. The democratic national committee has chosen W. T\ Harrityof Pennsylvania as chairman, and S. P. Sheerin of Indiana as secretary. ''Our democratic friends on the other side of the chamber talk about tariff barons and tariff robbers. Why, one can count on the fingers .of his two hands, and I think on one, those that have become immensely rich who have been engaged in manufacturing of any character or description. The manufacturers of this country, with all the advantages of a protective tariff, after paying their employes twice or three times as much as is paid in any other part of the world, have been able to earn but meagre dividends on capital invested. Statistics will confirm this. No; we must look further for this unequal distribution of wealth, which Irfear bodes no good to the future of the great republic. No; it is not the robber baron nor the business man that has so absorbed the wealth to become so enormously rich, but the creature that this system of speculation and gambling has evolved." The statistics of the Tribune have not been refuted, and they show that but a small percentage of the great fortunes of the United States have been made in the protected industries. THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES. Mr. Edrnumd Clarence Stedmon's poem, entitled "Ariel; in memory of Percy Bysshe Shelley, born on the 4th of August, 1T92," occupies the first three pages of the A r Usr \£ tnumbe ,F of the Atlantic Monthly. Mr. Stedman has done honor to himself as we\l as to Shelley in this beautiful poem, so abounding in musical cadences, jmd nas performed his difficult task well. The August,number of Scribner's Magazine is that annually welcome feature of thesummerseason, " The-Fiction Number." This year it .contains an unusual assortment of stories—no less than seven in all Among the popular writers who contribute stories are: Mrs. Burton Harrison, Octave Thanet, T. R. .-Sullivan, H. C. Bunner, and Duncan Campbell Scott. Four of the stories are illustrated, each ,by a single artist chosen with reference to his special fitness to deal with the particular .characters and scenes. t > The August issue of Romance is the midsummer number of that popular magazine of complete stories, and contains a large proportion of the light and bright stories which are most appropriate to the season. There are sketches of adventure, love stones, ghost stories, and descriptions of curious and amusing episodes in many lands, besides a. strong and characteristic story of the supernatural. In this single number are grouped .tales of life in Ameri- anassthetids, performed .a very delicate and skillful operation on the 12-year- old son of C. Jacobson. five miles east of Ledyard. About six weeks ago the boy was kicked in the eye by a colt; the eyelid was lacerated and contused in such a way that after it healed the outer half of the upper lid was turned wrong side out. The Kstherville Republican says the discourse by Rev. Bowen, our late Al gona pastor, at the Episcopal church Sunday evening upon the labor question is very favorably spoken of. He held that in many instances strikes are justifiably as being the only means of redress by the working men, but he was by no means in sympathy with anarchy or socialism, and was wholly opposed to bloodshed or a resort to desperate means of any kind. Bode Gaeettei It is proposed to see what can be done about bettering the roads in this vicinity. Two meetings have already been held to see about ditching Bloody Run with a steam ditcher. A committee was sent to Owl lake to see the work that had been done by a steam ditcher there and to talk with the proprietors of the machine. The result was they came out here and looked over the ground and said what they could do. Nearly all are in favor of having the work done, and it will possibly be done this summer on the co-operative plan. If this plan does not succeed, however, we shall petition to be allowed to organize a ditching district. We will then be a corporation, and we can go ahead with the work and assess each man in the district.

The same game is frequently worked by town lot boomers and the credulous made to believe that a city of 'two or three thousand inhabitants will spring up mushroom like in a place that will be fortunate to have three or five hundred in as many years. It is reported now that parties who paid fabulous prices for lots at the town of Thompson in Winnebago county are getting sick, and if they could only get back the original amounts invested they would be happy. It is hoped that the good people who invested in Armstrong will not get similarly fooled. PowdorJy Has a Word. In the journal of the Knights of Labor T. V. Powderly has a long letter on Carnegie and the Pinkertons. Here is an interesting excerpt: Partisan papers are trying to make political capital The sensation of the week at the Homestead mills was the shooting of H. C. Prick by a New York anarchist. Frick is now getting better .'tnd will re* cover. The police are arresting accomplices of the would-be assassin, who was in no way connected with the steel association nor the strikers. A widespread anarchist plot is thought to bo behind the shooting. O'Donnell and the other labor leaders are out under $10,000 bail on the charge of murdering the Pinkerton troops. The details of the chief events are: THE ATTACK ON FHICK.

The office boy noticed the man come in hurriedly from the outside and pass through the railing, but before he could stop him the stranger had entered the private office. He sprang to within about flve feet of Frick, quickly drew a revolver and pulled the trigger. The first cartridge did not explode, but the second shot entering the back of Frick's neck, glanced downward and passed out below the armpit. Frick jumped to a window on Fifth avenue and tried to open it but could not. Bergman rushed up to him again and fired, the ball entering the left side of the neck and passing around toalodgment under the right ear. At this moment Mr. Leishman threw himself on the assassin and struggled to get the revolver.. He clutched the barrel and -turned the nnmel up as the man pulled the trigger again, the ball entering the ceiling. The desperate man then drew a dagger and attempted to stab Leishman. Frick saw the gleam of steel and, although staggered by the shock of the wounds and bleeding profusely, jumped between other old-timer named Coville strumental in bringing him up, a 'ndt*' years were spent with W.

Thevcoming meeting at Des Moines, Aug. 18, at which the matter of country roads is to be discussed by delegates from all parts of the state, gives special interest to the memorial to congress sent out by Albert A. Pope of the Columbia Bicycle company. Mr. Pope is urging that the world's fair devote space to ,aa exhibit of improved methods of ri'oad making, and has corresponded .with a great many of the leading men of the country. The expressions of opinion in their responses show how widespread is the interest in this subject, and how generally all sections are awakening to the necessity of doing something. Among Iowa men who are quoted by Mr. Pope, C. J. Ives, president of the Burlington road, says: " So far as the state of Iowa is concerned, in which I have resided for the past forty-five years 1 the roads are not MS good now as Whey were when I first came to this state, with the exception of bridges and an occasional piece of road which has been somewhat improved, but the wide prairie afforded then a better means for getting around a mudhole than at present for getting through it, or rather, to do without the mud," This is a fair expression of the general sentiment of the letters. Senator Jas. F. Wilson writes: " I will be glad to do what I can to aid in the proposed exhibit of road-making, etc., as I am very much interested in the betterment of the condition of the roads of our country." And Gov. Boies says: "There is but one opinion in this state on this question, and that is in favor of improved roads." Among the hundreds responding from other states two opinions are noteworthy. President Harrison writes: '' A want of understanding and system J. Ellen Foster talked to the Michigan republican .convention. Here is the Chicago Tribune 1 .s report: "Mrs. J. Ellen Poster of Iowa, by invitation, solicitation, or whatever one chooaes to call it,'appeared before that convention :and delivered an address on the feasibilityiand advisability of the formation of women's auxiliary clubs. She was attired m a dress of black brocade silk and overdress of blaeik lace, and a bewitching little bonnet of '.the variety known to the irreverent as 'Johnny Go.' She wore also patent leather shoes, a fan, a two- karat diamond ring, and a smile that would charm a bird off its bush. She began with a modest little bluff to the.effect that she intended to occupy only fifteen minutes of the time of the convention. Jt was a horrible afternoon, with that overpressing heat such as one experiences In Georgia or Mississippi in the dog days. The convention was sweltering, but Mrs. Foster talked on, and on, and on. Her fifteen .minutes ran into thirty, and the thirty into forty- five. She used up about an hour'.s.time, but she roused up the delegates as 'they had never been before. Old fellows irom the lumber country—old chaps who .carried hickory canes, chewed plug tobaooo, .and wore striped calico shirts—yelled for J. Ellen to go on.

The democratic papers are vehement in their denunciation of the republican party for enacting a tariff law under which protection was afforded to manufacturers. There is no love for workmen in the hearts of these editors; a desire to serve party interests alone actuatesthem. Let us re view the situation m brief. Tariff laws could not be passed without discussion, and in all of the debates which took place in congress over the Mills and McKinley bills I cannot find that a single amendment was offered by a democrat to srive the workmen a certain portion of the tariff when collected. The Mills bill and the McKinley bill differ very little in the duty on steel rails, plates, etc. One was a democratic bill the other a republican. The McKinley bill reduced the duty on the articles manufactured at Homestead, and democratic papers in asserting that the trouble at that point is due to the McKinley bill are but condemning the very thing that they themselves advocate and on which they base tneir claim to power—a reduction of fn 6 tarl *. The Pinkertons existed before the Mills bill was introduced in •congress, and that institution continues to flourish mow that the McKinlev bill is m force. Whether the tariff went up or down, disputes between employer and employed would continue.

He made another lunge and this time the knife struck higher up but the point struck a rib and- glanced without inflicting much injury. Twice again was the knife thrust at Frick but he was merely scratched. By this time the office clerks and Deputy Sherriff May entered. May had drawn a revolver and was about to shoot Bergman in the back when Frick cried out- Don't kill him; we've gothim all right: leave him to the law." The man broke away and tried to escape, but was secured and taken to the station. In five minutes half a dozen surgeons were on hand and Frick's wounds were quickly attended to. He was calm, had perfect command of his faculties, and apparently was less excited than any other person in the room. BERGMAN'S ANTECEDENTS. A New York report says: The man looked up in Pittsburg for attempt to murder H. C. Frick is Alexander Bergman of this city. He is an anarchist of soldier In the revolutionary war. Cant Putnamn's father, Gideon Putnam, was a lineal descendent of Joseph Putnam brother of the famous Gen. Putnam Chas. E. Putnam came with his'™ rents to Cedar Rapids in October If&t He was at that time a boy of 15, andthr! first winter after his arrival in the went was spent in clerking. In April of thn following year he joined an outin? party and went to Kossuth, where fo? three years the greater part of thetime was spent with hunting and other snort of a thorough frontier life. He didBonm surveying during this time, but in ISM returned to his father's farm, west of Cedar Rapids. Here he taught the district school and during the winter months attended Western college Ha continued his course of studies at the college until the breaking out of the war and received at this institution the finishing touches of the hard work done before coming west at the Academv of Nashua.

This was in September 1861 and two days after being mustered in was commissioned second lieutenant soon after he was appointed first lieutenant and March 13,1863, was commissioned captain. He remained with Company G during 18 months of hard fighting, and was then placed upon detached service. In October, 1863, Capt. Putnam was made general judge advocate for the district of Vicksburg then under the command of Major General McPherson, with whom he remained until 1864, when he returned home on veteran furlough. In May, 1864, Capt.

And Gov. McKinley says: ije great need in many sections of Ns good country roads. This is a The better spirit which pervades leading republican papers in political discussions is illustrated by the Tort Dodge Messenger: "The Messenger is of the opinion that the time has come for a broader treatment of public questions than has been commonly given by the press. The public interest is not served by the policy which makes a newspaper discuss every question with a view to influencing votes to Its political party.
