It now appears that they will have a majority in the senate over both republicans and populists. Their leading papers are urging that a special session be called as soon as President Cleveland is inaugurated and that the present tariff be changed at once. With a clear majority to work with there is no doubt that a great modification will be made as early as possible, though perhaps not till the regular session which meets a year from now. THE Courier is still harping about the circular with J. J. 'Ryan's Swede speech, a " dirty little circular" it still calls it. But the one on B. F. Reed last fall it says was all right, and the one on Dolliver this fall was all right, and the one on John' G. Smith, which it knows nothing about, was all right. The.Courier's views of what is all right in politics are very amusing. The only difference in its eyes between what is "entirely proper" and what is a "scur- vey trick" is whether a democrat or a republican is the guilty party. We commend to the Courier's prayerful consideration the following from the Emmetsburg Reporter: "The new democratic bosses of thlscoun- ty mode a special effort to get republicans to vote against Congressman Dolliver. They got out a circular in the Scandinavian language, and a postal card " roorback" accusing Mr. Dolliver of almost everything. Not many of the democrats were a party to these Tajnmany tactics, and did not approve of the action of these self-appointed leaders." THERE is a general opinion expressed over the state that Iowa sends the strongest delegation to congress this year that has ever represented it. Two old-timers are revived, Updegraff and Hepburn, both men who were recognized as leaders during previous terms. Two new men are chosen, Cousins and Hager. Cousins is a young man, one of the most brilliant orators in the state, giving promise of a successful political career. Hager, as senator at Des Moines last winter, made a speech in the debate on the Gatch bill which won him a more than state-wide reputation, and is sure to take a good stand. The men re-elected are Dolliver, Perkins, Hull, Lacy, Henderson, and Gear among republicans, and Hays as a democrat. Every republican is a man of experience and proved usefulness, and Judge Hays was undoubtedly the leader of the democratic delegation in the last congress. Tt is a body of shrewd, aggressive, and able men. Iowa will be well to the front in the fighting line for two years. in THE Dubuque Telegraph indulges a mere quibble when it says: " Tim UPPEU DES MOIXES, published at Algona, Iowa, attributes the recent highway robberies on the Sagoville road near Dubuque to ' the country saloon system. 1 There are saloons in Dubuque county, but there is no 'country saloon system.' Nor are the saloons, while it is freely admitted that they are not as great aids to civilization as the church and the school, responsible for the robberies. It is as absurd to assert this as it would be to attribute the recent republican defeat to the famine in Russia." There may be properly speaking no "system" of country saloons in Dubuque county, but the country saloons are there along the Sageville road beyond the peradv'enture of a shadow of a doubt. By country saloons we mean those outside of the limits of municipal corporations and removed from police control. We are informed that what is true of the Sageville road is true of others leading into Dubuque, When the Telegraph says that there is no connection between these unregulated country saloons and the crimes committed along the highway they line it simply expresses its opinion. We had the pleasure of spending ten days at Sageville, and our opinion is that there is a connection and a very intimate one. The others of the thirty who were there coming from all parts of the state were unanimous, we believe, in the same opinion, And further, we believe that any unprejudiced observer who will take the trouble to spend a few days along the Sageville road will arrive at substantially the same conclusion. Should the question of township option ever again arise in the state we hope every voter will take enough of a vacation to ride along one of these Dubuque roads and see for himself what a country suloon system means. winter on the strength of a popular impression that there will be no lodging places to be had next summer ftt Reasonable rates. There is nothing whatever in this impression. Probably there were a? many in Chicago at the opening last month as there will be at any one time next year, and although private houses were hot opened as they will be then, and the dozen of more of hotels now in process of erection were not completed, no one had difficulty in being comfortably cared for at a reasonable price. Accommodations in Chicago next summer will be as plenty and as cheap as they ever have been, and people who join associations or pay fees for the privilege of getting rooms, will simply be out their tnoney. Chicago is a big city. It has plenty of big hotels. And every boarding house and home in the neighborhood of the fair grounds will be bidding for patronage. The attendance at any one time will not be larger than the city has provided for often before, and no one need feel the least fear that he will have to take to the pavement for a bed. These benevolent schemes to guarantee rooms for the small fee t>f $3.50 are like all other such benewleooes. They get your money and you get experience. in the country had some particular notion about affairs which differed, at least in degree, from the ideas of ail other voters, therefore it would be difficult as it would be futile to guess and express views at Random Just now." From all quarters come compliments to Jas. E. Blythe of Mason City, chairman of the republican atate central committee. His management has been successful and judicious. Gov. Boies telegraphed Mr, Cleveland that Iowa had been carried on "minor issues," The people are curious how to know what the minor issues were. more A WORLD'S PAIR BUGABOO. THE UPPER DES MOINES is J.n receipt of a circular requesting it to act as agent for some new hotel scheme in Chicago, which is to be carried through next year. The circular has the usual scare about the lack of accommodations for visitors, etc., and wants us to work up a local patronage for this particular hotel, each visitor to pay $3.50 as a, membership fee of which we are to have $1.50 for our trouble. This and dozens of schemes like it are being put through this THE DISSATISFIED. The republican party met in than even comtoat the legitimate opponents of its policies. It was overwhelmed by the army of the dissatisfied. Cady Chase put the whole matter in an epigram when he said that the beginning and the end of the republican platform was " we point with pride." For thirty years republicans have been responsible for our national legislation. What else could they say than that the people were well governed? How could they avoid declaring that labor was well paid, the farmer prosperous, the whole people progressing on safe lines? And every declaration roused the antagonism of .the discontented. To them President Harrison was the candidate of the well-fed, and the well-dressed. The party said " we point with pride" to our money system and every Colorado free silver alarmist and every Wall street alarmist at the Sherman law was up in arms. It said "we point with pride" to our tariff policy and manufacturers who thought free trade would make cheaper labor, and laborers who thought the manufacturer was getting more thain his share, joined hands. It said " we point with pride" to improved temperance laws and the saloon men denounced the president as a puritain at the very time that the prohibitionists declared him a "wine bibber." And to all this the democratic party said "we view with alarm," and every man with a hobby, every advocate of some patent for suddenly .changing social conditions, every free trader, land tax man, socialist, extremist .on temperance legislation, or advocate of a new money system, either directly .or indirectly, flocked to its standard. "We view with alarm" is the watchword of the dissatisfied. . Discontent is one of the most peculiar of the many manifestations of the human mind. It bears no relation to either health, wealth, or social position. The most discontented person we ever met complained because Minneapolis afforded DO convienences for living, closing with the assertion that to dwell in a city smaller than Chicago was about like quitting altogether. Sometimes discontent is healthy. But healthy or unhealthy it stands forever opposed to the utilitarian maxim "let well enough alone." For this reason the discontented are inevietably opposed to any party which says to the people "you are doing as well as you could expect." It was idle for the republican party to show that labor was paid twice and three times as much as in any other country in the world. The dissatisfied said "look at Carnegie." It was idle to tell the farmers that they lived in homes their fathers never dreamed of owning, and used as common necessities what Washington would have preserved as rare luxuries. The dissatisfied said "look at the price of wheat." It was idle to show the whole country that we have more money in circulation, counting credits, than any nation on earth, and that that money is the soundest and safest of any on earth, The free silverite, the gov^ ernment loan advocate, the fiat money man, and the state bank man, all shouted "we view with alarm." The army of the dissatisfied will in time overwhelm any party which is responsible for affirmative legislation. The democracy now win by uniting every element of opposition to republican policies. It will hold its power just so long as it can avoid the responsibility of doing anything. But the moment its leaders say "now the reforms are accomplished which we have promised, now social conditions are ameliorated, now the laborer and farmer are on the high road to wealth, now the people have all they can possibly Iowa democrats are already discussing Gov. Boies for a cabinet position. The Dubuque Telegraph says: "Some think he could better fight the battle for the sen- atorship from his present position of governor. But there is little doubt that a cabinet portfolio would be acceptable to the governor on the score that a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. If he be not taken into the cabinet next March, and unless he be chosen senator next winter, Gov. Boies may not again appear in public life, or if he should appear two years hence as a candidate would find his prestige unimpaired. On the other hand, if chosen to the cabinet next March Tie might become senator three years hence or be elected to congress, the vice presidency or possibly to the presidency in 1896." Gov. Boies' cheap corn has had its run In Iowa. The Mason City Republican announces that'it will discontinue the ready print business. ' The Chicago Herald said just before election: " A democratic triumph in Iowa today would Tie, in a large sense, a personal triumph for Gov. Boies, although "ho is a candidate for no office at this election. But he has been active in the campaign, advising the people of Iowa in every county visited by him to support the platform and nominees of the Chicago convention." Now that there is no democratic victory how does it affect the governor? The republicans gained over 1,000 votes in Davenport and Scott county. Dolliver's majority in the district is figured at anywhere from 6,000 to 7,800. It is enormous, but the exact figures cannot be had until the official count is reported. It is the biggest victory ever won in the Tenth district. IN THIS NJ3IOHBOKHOOD. Livermore is to have a lady dentist. John Burt is moving his goods from Bancroft to Armstrong.

Some Account of His Handling of Delicate Questions—His Acts tttill Approval Everywhere. From the special correspondence of the New York World We give a somewhat connected account of the career of our distinguished consul, Phil. C. Hnnrm, who has won so much praise for his course during the Venezuelan revolution. He has evidently been in close quarters more than once, as he was fired on while out in a small boat. But he has never lost his nerve and his pluck has saved many American lives as well as much American property. The World gives by far the most complete reports of the trouble, having sent an able special correspondent to LaGuayra. The following paragraphs are from his reports of recent date. The one relating the resolution of thanks was published Nov. 5. The story begins with the attempt to land the commander and cargo of the American ship "Venezuela." HOW HE PROTECTED AMERICANS. The steamer Venezuela's troubles did not terminate at Puerto Cabello, for the officials of LaGuayra were busy devising some scheme to annoy her when she should appear off the harbor. The old question of papers, which has been worn threadbare during the present revolution furnished the theme. " We will not allow her to land her cargo until the original register is deposited with the custom house authorities," Senor Don Palacios, the civil and military chief of LaGuayra had said early in the day, "and Gen. Rafael Quesada, a warm friend of Crespo's must be taken ashore and placed in prison, as soon as the vessel anchors." In both of these determinations Palacios was dissappointed, as events will show. Gen. 'Quesada's case was first taken up for consideration by Consul Hanna, with blood in his eye,' for our plucky representative was becoming a little tired of these vexatious delays, and continued and unnecessary anoy- ance. Upon examination it was found that the gene_ral in question was an American citizen, and had come to visit Venezuela to look after his coffee plantation in the interior. As soon as Consul Hanna saw the passport and signature of Secretary Foster himself he turned to Gen. Quesada and said: "General, you may go ashore whenever you want to. You are an American citizen and under my protection. Show the officials your passport, and if it be not respected we will see that it is," waving his hand at the same time in the direction of the great flag ship, 'Chicago. Gen. Quesada breathed a little easier as he looked up and saw the stars and .stripes floating at the masthead. I noticed at the same time, however, that he carefully stowed all of his jewels in a little bag, which he intrusted to the .care of.a bystander. At the custom house he was treated with cold courtesy and reluctantly given safe conduct to Caracas. HOW HE LANDED THE.CARGO. After Gen. Quesada's case was settled the consul turned his attention to the landing of the Venezuela's cargo. Permission had already been asked, but refused, and it looked as though there was going to be some trouble. From the foremast head of the Venezuela fluttered a small signal flag, which Admiral Walker quickly understood. " Send without delay a squad of marines, with 2P rounds of ball cartridges, to the American steamer Venezuela," said an other signal messenger to the commander of the Kearsarge. The crew of the. old war corvette were drilling at general quarters, but it did not take them long to respond. Lieut. Winder was sent in charge of the party, with Lieut. Ingate and 20 marines under him. The sleepy-eyed Venezuelans on the adjoining deck opened their eyes with surprise when the marines were drawn up in line on the starbord side of the Venezuela's upper deck and Lieut Ingate gave the order: " With ball cartridge—load!" Click! sounded 20 hammers simultaneously, and as many cartridges, on business were inserted. bent ask for," its support will melt away like snow in October, and it in turn will confront the angry and disappointed army of the dissatisfied. Senator Allison said about all there is to be said about the outcome: " I am too busy now to waste any time guessing at the cause of tlje recent political ebullition. I presume that there are several millions of causes; because I suppose that every voter \ Spirit Lake seems to have highwaymen to spare. The Milford Mail says: As S. A. Gross was driving to town Lieut. Wilder's orders were to allow no armed person or persons to come on board the Venezuela, and if more appeared than his force could contend with, to hoist a signal at the masthead for reinforcements. The marine guard was divided up into sentries and stationed in different parts of the ship. Meanwhile, during all this warlike demonstration, a fight was going on between Capt. Hopkins and the custom house authorities. They demanded his register before giving permission to land the cargo. He refused, stating that his register was in the hands of the United States consul, to do with as he saw fit. The consul declined to give up the document at all, as the last time theso self-same officials had refused to return it, and only did so when the guns of the French man-of- war were loaded and her deck cleared for action and the demand made. It was a serious question, this delivering of a paper which meant that the merchant ship owning it would be a pirate on the high seas unless it could be produced if demanded. Three hours had passed, and still the vessel was not even allowed to go along side of the dock. Capt. Hopkins was mad, the consul was more so, but the Vene- settled, and the custotn officials were to meet on board the Venezuela, they changed their minds, and could not receive the instrument from the consul—it must come from the hands, of the captain of the steamer. Capt. Hopkins declined to discuss the matter with them at all-^said that the register was in the hands of the consul and would remain there till he saw fit to give it up. It was now nearly 2 o'clock and the steamer had been delayed almost itn entire day. Disgusted by this child's play, Consul Hanha took out his watch and turning to the customhouse officers said: "I will give you all just five minutes to sign or refuse to sign the receipt for that register. In either case the cargo will be dumped out upon the dock." As is customary in such cases, the receipt was forthcoming, and the curtain rUng down Upon the last act. The Venezuelans had accomplished their purpose, however, for the American ship had lost nearly a whole day. READY TO HELP ANYONE. On another day a native of Trinidad, a British possession, complained to the British vice-counsul that Gov. Palacios' men at Macuto had threatened his life unless he furnished a horse before a specified time, and appealed to the consul for protection. The vice-consul was not able to make any satisfactory promise. The complaintant then appealed to Phil. C. Hanna, the United States consul. Mr. Hanna said that if the British vice-consul would ask him to do so, he would guarantee protection at once and see that the man was protected. This the British representative would not do. Then the captain of the Spanish gun boat stepped in and with the British subject visited the governor, whom he told that he wanted a certificate of protection for the man and that if he did not get it immediately he would be compelled to take a hand in the matter himself. The British subject got his protection at once. PHIL. KISSES THE BRIDE. Mars is not having things all its own way even down in revolutionary Venezuela, for yesterday Cupid boarded the flagship Chicago and muzzled hot- great 8-inch rifles. All of the foreign men-of-war in the harbor likewise forgot their stern duties for a day and were decorated from stem to stern— from truck to keelson. The occasion was the marriage of Geo. TCugene Bryson, an American citizen now residing in Venezuela, and Senorita Julia Gonzalez, a Subject of Spain. Twelve o'clock was the hour set for the wedding, but long before the sun had reached its meridian altitude the flagship's cutters were laden down to the water's edge with guests of all nationalities. They were determined that for one day at least the dogs of war should be held at leash and the dark cloud forgotten that hangs over unhappy Venezuela. As the wedding party came over the gangway the Chicago's band played the Star Spangled Banner, and the crew and officers stood with uncovered heads. An attack upon LaGuayra has been looked for every day during the past month, for its rich custom bouse would be a mint to the revolutionists. The mountains back of the town had been bristling with soldiers for several days, many of the skirmishers having advanced as far as the little town of Macuto the Newport of Venezuela. The two forces came together at last and a. bloody battle was fought almost within view of the wedding party, the sharp crack of rifle shots making a weird contrast to the soft strains of "Swedish Wedding March." Admiral Walker and Consul Hanna were witnesses on the part of the United States government, and the Spanish consul. Col. Jose Fronski, gave away the bride, acting as best man at the same time. After the speech of the Spanish consul the representative of the United States, Mr. Phil. C. Hanna, turned to the bride and, kissing her said: " I now place upon you the consular seal of the United States, and proclaim you an American subject," The wedding party then adjourned to the ward-room where the officers gave an elaborate luncheon, sending every one away in good humor as the familiar strains of "Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ay" echoed across the calm Caribean. HIS ACTS MERIT APPROVAL. To all who are familiar with the history of LaGuayra during the past two months, it is evident that the animus of the whole affair was directed toward Consul Hanna, the representative of the United States. This officer had incurred the eternal displeasure of the Venezuelan officials by his stanch defence, not only of Amerian citizens, but of all foreign subjects, at a time when there was a " reign of terror" in LaGuayra. He it was that saved the consuls from imprisonment when they were cutoff from all communication with their ministers and the home government, by calling upon the commanders of their different warships in the harbor.

J. C. SCHOLTZ & Co., P. L. BouwoN & Co., and others. So great has been the interest in Venezuela throughout the United States, that Consul Hanna has received several offers from western managers to deliver a series of lectures on the revolution. He is too busy at present however, to leave his post. ' ONE LONE OrriOE IN SIflHT. There IB Promise of a Lively Campaign Among the Faithful for the Postofllce—The Situation Bevlewed. The sudden shortage of offices caused by the untimely November frost here has occasioned a scramble among our friends, the democrats, for what is left that beats a settler's raid on a western reservation. The smoke of battle was still hovering when half a dozen candidates for the postofflce were in the field and more on the way. THE UPPER DES MOINES as a faithful chronicler can only give what is rumore'd, having no official information. Although it and the LuVerne News were untiring in their efforts to get Mr. Ryan his nomination, we regret to say that thus far we have not been consulted about the proper distribution of the crumbs that are left. But rumor has Recorder Smith and J. W. Hinchon at the front in the race, with T. H. Lantry, C. D. Pettibone, Jas. Taylor, Chris. Heise, and possibly Mr. Ryan himself in the field. If Mr. Ryan wants it, of course that settles it. But we doubt whether he does. And Jas. Taylor is slated for revenue collector, which is a better thing. Mr. Smith has many claims and would make a good postmaster, but, if Bro. Hinchon is after it, he will have a strong pull, in spite of the fact that he has never been a Cleveland man, and was especially ^convinced that Cleveland's nomination this year was a blunder. If the real Cleveland men get any recognition Chris. Heise ought to win, for he has been for Cleveland against all comers. And if the " wheelhorses" are to. have any show Mr. Pettibone will be considered. In view of the collapse of the "kindergarten" leaders this year it is possible that some of the veterans will get to the front. Outside of the post office one democrat tells us that the slate is for J, J. Ryan to go to Chili to succeed Egan, Ike Finnel to take Phil. Hanna's place, and J. W. Hinchon to go to Cork. It looks like " carrying coals to Newcastle" to send Bro. Hinchon to Cork, and the suggestion of Chili for Ryan is unkind. But if Ike will read over Phil's record in Venezuela and satisfy his constituents that he is equal to all the demands that service down there would make on him, we are not sure that he should not win. But these plans for outside places are chimerical. We have an idea that all the offices Grover gives to Iowa after this election can be put in one eve. The only thing that is safe is the post- office. That is booked for a local democrat. If no other agreement is possible THE UPPER DES MOINES would suggest that the gallant thing be done and that Miss C. T. Dodd be appointed. KOSSUTH'S POPULATION. Her Vote of 3,4OO Gives us 17,000 People —Aluonn has 3,005 — Other JJIfj Gains Shown by the Returns. One result that all parties can feel proud of in the Kossuth county vote is the evidence it gives of growth. The totals by townships for 1891 and the present year are put side by side in the following table; no account being made of the ballots thrown out this year. Their number would materially increase the vote of many townships and make a still more flattering showing. Their number also accounts for ent losses in some townships: appar- ed that had the the Venezuelan government insolence to notify Minister Tuesday evening he was met by a highwayman who seized his horse's bits and with cocked revolver pointed at his head ordered him to throw up his hands. At the same time two confederates rushed from an adjacent cornfield to go through their victim. They got the magnificent sum of 80 cents: his pocket book, containing about as many dollars, he managed to throw under the buggy sent as he was dismounting therefrom at their command. The villians were masked and unrecognizable by Gross. zuelans were in high glee. Turning to an ebony-hued custom official, Cupt. Hopkins said. _ "I am going to haul my ship in and discharge my cargo anyway," The official objected and poured forth a broadside of oaths in Spanish. Still the Venezuela was warped slowly in, and every preparation made to unload. Meanwhile telegrams were passing between Admiral Walker, Minister Scruggs, and the government of Caracas. A compromise was finally reached, and the minister suggested that the consul comply with the laws of the country ana give up the register, only after obtaining a written receipt,- however. About noon, when everything seemed! Scruggs that Consul Hanna's exequatur had been revoked and requested that he would transmit the information to Washington. Minister Scruggs paid no attention to them, but a few weeks later chanced to meet the president and minister of foreign affairs.' Turning to the former he said: "Ibolievelhayeinmy possession a note from your minister of foreign affairs to the effect that your government had revoked the exequator 6t the United States consu at LaGuayra, and that I would transmit the information to mv government.
