Dr. Bourne is doubtless beginning to realize, if be has not before, that hb acceptance of local option by townships is not benefiting him in this district In fact without pleasing those who oppose prohibition, it has unpleasantly surprised those who hare always regarded him as an advocate of aoti-sa- loon legislation. To those who believe in a well regulated plan for the sale of liquor, local option ij? almost as bad as prohibition, for bow can any well regulated system exist where a saloon runs one year*and i* prohibited the next? Dr. Bourne will not voice their sentiments by voting for any local option lair, much less a township option law.

THBtrue inwardness of the Britt representative convention ha» gradually leaked out It seems that instead of being a spectator merely the Courier editor was a chief advisor, and that the two men who represented Hancock county were out and out democrats. It seems further that the Hancock men were acting (secretly and representing the alliance without authority. Since the convention the alliance men have repudiated the whole thing. A. H, Moore, president of the alliance, was asked to take part but refused on the ground that the alliance IB non-partisan, and the alliance ref UHOB now to endorse anything done. This in also the attitudo of the alliance In Kossuth. The presidentof one of the leading township alliances said lawt week that that order In non-political, and that the peoples 1 party -movement in an entirely outside affair. As a body the fiirmerti' alliance In not tn politics, and it is now certain tliut in Kossuth the members •will repudiate at the polls the attempt any form, option is dis- seems. The old local option law was bad enough but that confined the saloon to municipal corporations when there was ao organized police system to keep it in bounds. But this new law would allow country townships to adopt tbe saloon. It proposes to make the old annual spring election row, which was confined to the towns, a regular thing in every farm cofamunity of the state, and to make the saloon and the saloon keeper the central thing in every local contest. But this is the least of the evils it promises in this new form. The new law proposes practically to put the saloon out of police supervision. There is no possibility of legal or decent liquor selling in country districts removed from the municipal authorities. The township has no adequate arrangement for seeing that the law is respected, and what hours will be observed, what restrictions enforced, or what Sunday observance secured, where the saloon is allowed to make its own regulations? Can anyone have assurance that liquor will not be sold to minors and drunkards? On the contrary is it not morally certain that no restrictions would be observed, and that having but a one year lease of life, the saloon would run for all that was in the business? Dr. Bourne has had experience enough with this matter to know that control or restriction of any kind is out own we are afraid —^,3^^ some of the bright and original ideas he is to those who wmferring TO the e* 1 *"" °* the state J be wasted- It is this fear which in any form.

He knows also that the mere mutter of criminal expenses to the county would bo no small item. The brawls and assaults which would arise in saloons thus removed from the watchful eye of the authorities would keep up a continual and heavy cost on the county which every would be made to feel. DR. BOUUNK'S remarkable loiter in which ho says ho can soo no essential difference between tho platform Westfall Is on and tho one Boies is on occasions considerable amusement. Tho Bancroft Register says of it: " Loaders of tho third party claim thoro is no difference between tho democratic- and republican parties, and Dr. Bourne soos no difference between tho alliance platform and the democratic, consequently lie could endorse tho republican platform too. To endorse tho wliolo business ought to givo a follow foundation enough to got into oflloo." And the LuVorno News adds: " Dr. Bourno, tho greatest three horse political hip- podromo rider on earth, will bo on exhibition for throo weeks only. Bo sure to BOO him in tho startling and highly sensational double act of manipulating tho domijohn and waving his prohibition mantle, wliilo dashing madly around tho ring upon his trick horse, 'Alliance,'" Dr. Bourno is a very pleasant gentleman, and wo doubt not a good farmer, but if this letter is a sample of his political sagacity, ho ivould bo a lamb loci to slaughter if ho should ever got into tho moil at Des Moines. political tur- HKNBY WATTKHSON, tho grout Kentucky democrat, said in Chicago last week " that tho democratic ways and moans committee next winter will formulate n bill which will place all foreign merchandise which competes with American manufactures on the free list, thus admitting them without fluty, and abolishing ovnry vestige of protection; and that it will reimpose revenue duties on sugar, coffee, tea, and other like products, as doing that would protect nothing." This statement shows tho drift of democratic sonti- anent and points out tho mil issue between tho parties on tho tariff. How- over voters in cither party may differ ws to tho relative percentage of duties Jiore is a plain broad difference in Vi-inciple which clearly distinguishes republicans from democrats, Tho issue la only indirectly raised at this election out atlll tho farmers are vitally in- But the most serious objection to the country saloon is the resort it affords to the boys and young men. f n towns it is not alone us a place to visit. Other things come in to divide the attention. But in tho country where nothing would take its place, what is more certain than that during tho long winter months It would be the rallying plnce for tho young? And who has any doubts as to the outcome? Removed from police surveillance, crowded nightly by tho same companions, how many seasons would pass before a story of disgrace would bo written In more than one community in Kossuth county, which years could not efface? What farmer with a family of growing boys can look with unconcern upon such a prospect? What man can excuse his own conscience for voting for a candidate who will help to make such a law? How can Dr. Bourne, a farmer himself and woll acquainted with the results which would follow tho advent of one of these unregulated liquor holes in his own township, stand up before his follow citizens and ask their suffrages to assist him in making those things not only possible but to make thorn actual and roalin half tho townships of this county? It Is still a mutter of surprise to all who know tho men who went to the Courier which republisbed the staff j irr espective of party, joined in a state! ment, which was given in full in THE | UPPER DES MOIXES at the time. Since Our esteemed contemporary up fte j then ne nas been let alone until the street not satisfied with manipulating <he' past week, when the Herald gave a borne taflards-'is now about to take su- pretended interview with Phil. Schaller {"">"<"'«« THE UPPEB DES MOIXES'"oat- about Wheeler's taxes, in which he is s^-":sr5r±-j5£ jssi.-s.rsirt ^y columns. In this respect ne i, like hb JT v^5 « Courier, although Schaller had denied three days before ever having talked with a reporter of the Herald, or having made the statements charged. But had be not denied it the story bore its bwn refutation, for who would believe so silly a story as that a man of Mr. Wheeler's business standing would steal 866? And if he had, how would he carry his county by 68 out of 70 votes in the convention? Such stuff shows to how serious straits the democrats are put, for this slander was sent out to the democratic papers by the central committee with a label asking them to publish it, and marked copies in this county were sent to hundreds of republicans. The democrats are relying on slandering Wheeler and Van Houten out of this canvass. In connection with this story the following from Sac county shows what is thought of it at home: "ODZBOLT, Oct. 10.—The report has been widely circulated throughout the state that W-heeler would not carry his own county at the coming election. The fact is that he will run away ahead of his ticket. A few da.ys ago" it was announced that a democrat from another county had left $1,000 with W. J.- Summerwill, a leading democrat of this city, to be wagered that Wheeler would not carry the county by a majority of over 350, but the thing was a fake. When the republicans went to Summer- will and offered to put up any amount, they found that the money was not there. There is no dissatisfaction in republican ranks in this county, and many democrats are openly for Mr. Wheeler. If any misguided democrat wants to bet that Wheeler will not carry Sac county by a rousing majority, let him send his money to one of the brethren in Odebolt to wager for him. The people in this place will cover any sum that can be sent in." How Mr. Wheeler stands outside is shown by the following editorial in Saturday's Chicago Tribune: "The Iowa republicans are peculiarly fortunate in their candidate for governor, H. C. Wheeler the great Sac county farmer. Mr. Wheeler has never held a public office, and he makes no pretentions as a stump-speaker or writer of campaign effusions, but he is nevertheless making a telling canvass and gaining strength and friends daily.

His companion asked him to guess how many there were, and he thought he would be low enough, so he said twenty. When he got to them, the general writes " there were just two of them. Seated upon their haunches with their mouths close together they had made all the noise " The general sagely adds, "I have often thought of this incident since, when I have heard the noise of a few diappointed politicians who had deserted their associates.

Not only the crowds which poured in Saturday evening to hear CoL Henderson, but the assurances which come in from all sides in the county point to the biggest republican vole ever cast in Kossuth The indications of another local split, which were plenty enough a week ago, have all but disappeared and that fact shows that voters apprel ciate the superior importance of the vital issues. Probably everyone thought that the bitterness of the contest for sheriff's office would be carried into the campaign just as such differences bave for two years, but everyone ! - now surprised to find how universally is republicans propose to stand nominee.

Twenty thousand people witnessed the Nelson-Allerton race at Grand Rapids last Thursday for a purse of *10,000. The weather was chiJly enough to preclude any hope of record breaking time. The sky was overcast and once or twice a few drops of rain fell. The throng gave Nelson little tax payer the best of applause when the two stallions appeared, but Allerton was the favorite in the pools. Nelson won the first heat, but Allerton easily out-trotted him the noxt ! three. The track was in bad shape but the time was 2;13, 2:14'^, 2:15, and 2:lo)^. This inak'js Allerton the champion stallion of the world. The Courier says the farmers ought to elect a farmer representative, but says nothing about a farmer governor. Isn't it funny that such a friend of the farmer as The Courier should fail to see the iraport- ance'of farmers in the chief state offices? Van Houten will soon come to Kossuth. Will The Courier advise the farmers to rally round him or will it peddle stale slanders on him as it has OH Wheeler? What Blaino and the Elaine policy are doing for the west is shown in the following report in Bvadstreet's, the great financial authority: " For 15 weeks of the current cereal year exports from both coasts of the United States amounted to 63,580,000 bushels as compared with 27,303,000 bushels in 15 weeks in 1800, 28,368,000 bushels in 1880, 83,575,000 bushels in t888, and 52,033,000 bushels in u like portion of 1887.

SCHA1VLKH AXW W1IKKJ.EH. THE UPPISH DES MOINES is in ro- coipt of u personal letter from Plon. Phil.

Mr. Wheeler is not an amateur agriculturist; his sole business is that of farming, and he has managed with great success the broad farm on which he lives. One of the largest and most successful farmers and stock-raisers in the state, Mr. Wheeler is a thorough business man as well, and although new to the field of politics he is showing there good judgment and sagacity. Unlike Ms competitor, Gov. Boies, he has not distressed his friends with painful blunders, but at every opportunity he strikes the nail squarely on the head. If the Iowa republicans can't beat Boies with Wheeler their case is hopeless. A few years ago when Mr. Wheeler was made president of the Iowa State Agricultural society, it was said by one of the members of that organization and a leading citizen of the state that they WAl'A * nrtf ^klrtrt*!««. „ . . . . all but seven townships being present. J. W. Hinchon was chairman. After the usual formalities, Thos. Lantry was nominated for county treasurer by acclamation, and the county srpevintend- ency was left vacant for Miss Carey. When sheriff was reached Hie issue in the convention came up. C. D. Pettibone's friends were anxious to give him the recognition he deserved, because his defeat two years ago was thought to have resulted from a lack of work on the part of the democrats. Mr. Scott also had a big following in the convention. But the political managers had laid their heads together and with the advice of a few Algona republicans had picked out Jack Graham of Bancroft as a "hail fellow well met" candidate, and the second ballot saw him named. Mr. Scott got 80 votes on each ballot showing that his supporters were not to be led off for mere political ends. The other nominations were quickly made, and the convention adjourned. Of the leading candidates THE UPPER DES MOINES has Mr. Lantry is one of spoken before, the unexcelled wore 'not electing a one hoss shay,'but a 'strong modern four-Wheeler.'

A large number of farmers and town people gathered at the Tennant house Friday afternoon and evening to meet the republican candidate for governor. Mr. Wheeler is a large fine looking man, and impressed all most favorably. He talked with all on the issues of the campaign and expressed confidence in republican success this year.
