Heporte from Washington indicate that the movement to elect the president and vice president by direct popular vote Is gaining, and that it will assume definite shape shortly in congress. Springer of Illinois, Col. McClure, and others hare appeared before the committee, while a resolution hds been introduced by Beltzhoover of Pennsylvania In the lower house. It seems entirely likely that something may be done before another presidential election to dispose of the cumbrous, antiquated, and absurd electoral system we now have. The electoral college is the one conspicuous constitutional "fiction" of our government. It is merely a form now, all the original purpose of it having long since txjen disposed of. It is amusing in these days to read the reasons given for its adoption, and then to note how without discarding it the people have brought to ridicule the solemn warnings of the fathers Its primary purpose was to put the choice of the president into the hands of a select body of wise men, free from popular prejudice, Thus Hamilton says in the Federalist: " A small number of persons selected by their fellow citizens from the general mass will be most likely to possess the information and discernment requisite to so complicated an investigation." Think of this and then of the authority now exercised by the puppet show of an electoral college! * Hamilton said further: "It was peculiarly desirable to afford as little opportunity a» possible to tumult and disorder," this in his opinion being what would result from direct popular action in the selection of a chief magistrate. Think of this in view of our present system of conventions and campaigns! "The choice of several," says Hamilton, "to form an intermediate body of electors will be much less apt to con• vulee the community with any extraordinary or violent movements than the choice of one who was himself to be the final object of the public wishes." But there were other reasons, not less absurd today, for the adoption of . the electoral system. In those days the right of suffrage was limited in various states, and Madison in the debates pointed out that " the right of suffrage • was much more diffusive in the northern states than in the southern, and that the latter would have no influence in the election on the score of negroes," ' and ho therefore opposed electing by popular vote. Then too the old theory of states rights was held by nearly all the delegates, and everything had to bo done by states Instead of by tho people. But tho real objection to a popular vote was un underlying fear of any real democracy. To refer tho choice of a proper character for a chief magistrate to tho people," protested Mason, "would bo us unnatural as to refer a trial of colors to a blind man." And WilliumBonsaid: "An election by Iho people is an appolntrncnl by lot." Morris ttlono favored popular elections, und Pennsylvania alono of tho stulos voted for them. Tho reader lias only lo glunco ovor thcso und othor utlorunuos of Iho frum- ora of Iho conslilutkm to see how unom- alous und ubsurd tho electoral college is today. Il has failed absolutely lo accomplish anything It wus Intended for, " und tho ovlls 11 <vus calculated to prevent havo proved no evils at all. Our presidents uro nol chosen by a selecl body, wo do not have popular " tumults" ovor chief magistrate, and all the change has dono is lo broaden und Btronglhen our roul democracy, and in- surg on a sufor busis than ovor popular government. But sovorul things it wus nol Intended lo accomplish it has boon vory instrumental in, and they uro tho groutesl ovlls of modern polities. It hus abnormally increased Iho in- lluenoe of a few slales. Tho two political parlies having' a fairly balanced lisl of "solid slalos" havo made their wholo fight for Iho I wo or three doubtful onos. Thus all oandidales have boon taken from one or Iwo localilios. Tho ropublleant) under our present system would no more think of taking a president from Iowa than Iho demo- orals would from Texas, whatever his illness. Tho power of money in elections is enormously Increased by tho electoral system. Tho whole effort being lo carry a fow stulos, it hus boon possible lo concentrate all influence in a circumscribed urea, und either great parly could buy a lloaling volo when il became evident Unit a few hundred or a few thousand in New York City or some Indiana county would decide the whole contest. All efforts being concentrated In fixed On realities, the educating influences of jll-coutested campaigns have been , t to "solid" states. The national |nA..a,anittee which sends either litera- tore, speakers, or money to any but the few doubtful states is called ft set of •'rainbow chasers." Where this evil has been roost felt has been in the south. The darkey has been left to Bbift for himself almost wholly because his vote did not count, and for the same reason baa had none of the education Dor encouragement of vigorous political discussion. The republican party could not hope to carry southern states, and individual votes being worthless, it would have been political suicide to waste energy over individual votes which did not count, when it was all needed for doubtful states which did count. Out of this same cause has grown the dissatisfaction with th| present method of voting in national conventions, where delegates from states which never give an electoral vote for the candidates have an equal voice In making the ticket. Thos. B. Reed has proposed a logical conclusion of existing methods when he says In effect that only delegates from the deciding states should take any part, thereby putting not only the electing but the nominating of a president into the hands of a minority of the people. Every one of these evils would disappear In an instant if the president were elected by popular vote. How long would democrats and republicans concentrate on New York and Indiana, If a democratic vote in Iowa or a republican vote in Texas counted just as much as in those atates? How would it be possible to use money with any effect if every voting place In the union were the deciding precinct? How long would the darkey vote be neglected If the presidency depended as much upon a fair count In Mississippi as it docs upon a fair count in New York's tough wards? The spirit of the electoral system long since departed.' Of what use are Us worthless forms? The people of the United States name their presidents direct. Why should they not elect them the same way? There is no defense of this outgrown intruder In a democratic government, which was born In fear of the people and coddled by the advocates of a discarded theory of states rights, and which today serves only to nullify expressions of popular opinion and to distort our political life. The next president -of the United States should be elected In a manner consistent with a free government of and by the people. THE Gate City gives two reasons why republicans should not nominate a candidate for United States senator next fall. One is that there are three or four men who want it and that if u winner is named before election the campaign will lose interest. The othor is that the constitution gives the legislature power to elect senators und that if any change is desired the constitution should be amended. This second objection is very easily disposed of. The United States constitution gives the electoral college full authority to elect u president. Without any amendment tho people huvo, very wisely, taken upon themselves to instruct the eleclorul college us to Iheir wishes. It would be no violation of the Iowa constitution for tho people to signify to the coming especially when his speech appeared in print next morning, and all the protection democrats are fighting mad at the slight. When he took bis seat in congress Monday be was loudly cheered and now the fight is on in earnest The whole matter turns on the election of the next speaker. The free traders intend to do what they can to carrv out the platform, and are against Crisp. The Carroll Herald offers something practical cm road reform: " Carroll county bas for several years set aside one mill of the general road levy to be expended under the direction of the board of supervisors, and more and better improvements have been made with this fund than with the proceeds of a four mill levy entrusted to the districts themselves. Nearly all of the grading in the coonty has been provided for In this way, and the liberal use of gravel has shown very good results even in low and marshy places. The way to reform is to abolish tbe road district system, lower the levy 50 per cent, and make the tax payable in cash. At the end of five years, with the proceeds judiciously invested by the board, the county surveyor, or some other capable officer, there would not be a road in the state which would not be available for travel at every season of the year. The plan has been very satisfactory on the partial test which it has undergone in Carroll county." A girl was arrested at Spencer last week, who had run away from home because she despised school teaching. She was working at the Merchants hotel when caught.

Burrell says of Gould in the Washington Press: "It is said he lived and died a Presbyterian. May be. But he was an almighty poor Christian." Congressman Seerley, the democrat who was beaten by Gov. Gear, favors electing postmasters. D. F. Miller wrote him a letter advising ward elections to select a postmaster for Keokuk. . Seerley replies: " If the democrats would consent to settle matters among themselves in the way you intimate, I am certain that no one would be more pleased by being released of the unpleasant duty than myself. I am sorry that the selection is not to be decided in same such manner as you suggest all over the United States." legislature their choice of candidates for tho sonute. And as to the first objection it is likewise disposed by the uniform experience of all parties in national politics. There was a large element of weakness to republicans In bo- Ing compelled to name u cundidute at Minneapolis. But who for an Instant believes that tho party would have been stronger if It had said to tho people wo havo two or tho three good men and the olooloral college will chose one of them if republican electors aro so- looted?

The state university sends Bohumll Shimek and Chas. L. Smith to Nicaraugua this month on a botanical expedition. Transportation has been furnished by the Illinois Central road and the Nicaraugua canal company. The expedition will return in April. LuVerne and Livormore have two of the very best weekly papers in Iowa. We think this every week as' the News and Gazette come to our table. The old fable of the hare and the tortoise has a new setting. Congressman Amos J. Cummins, who had not set type for 25 years and the noted correspondent, Walter Wellman, who had not set type for 15 years, made a wager over setting a 500 em circular. A lot of congressmen and club men watched the contest. Wellman finished in 24 minutes with a clean proof. Cummings finished in 23 minutes but had to put in four minutes in correcting his proof, and Wellman won. A big supper hung on the result. The official count gives Dolliver4,944 plurality. Gear has 629; Hays, 7,772; Henderson, 1,403; Updegraff, 1,5'JO; Cousins, 1,098; Lacey, 1,175; Hull, 6,080; Hepburn, 4,831', Hager, 2,478; and Perkins, 1,277. Judge Hays says it was not decided at the democratic conference to run Gov. Boies for tho senate. He then adds: "Tho position of United States senator is a very enviable one and one, of course, I would like to occupy, but I have never been a candidate for the position or really thought of it." The same may be said of many other positions. If matters were so shaped that it seemed advisable to make this race, and there wus a reasonable show of success, I should not hesitate to say that I would like tho position." The papers aro all complimenting tho Spirit Lake Beacon on its 23rd birthday. The Beacon deserves all the good things said of it, and more. It is one of the half- dozen Iowa weeklies that every editor sorts out for special perusal, and it never disappoints. May Senator Punk and the Beacon enjoy many happy returns of the day.

The Proposed Change of Xatnc—The Courier Well Answered. SWEA, Iowa, Dec. 12, ISP'.—To the Editor: Please allow me .to reply through your columns to two articles in last week's Courier in reference to the future city of Swea, now railed Reynolds. The first article, which I take to be from the editor himself, states that If the name of s- uM town is changed it should be ciillrd Richmond. I hereby take pleasure in thanking the gentleman for the compliment, and while I honestly admit of my ambition for honor and notoriety, I never seek it except through proper channels of true merit, hence I refuse to entertain the idea of such a change, which has been suggested to me by many others also. The simple fact of my ambition and ability to purchase this town site does not entitle me in any degree to the name. I am in favor of rendering unto Caesar that which truly and honestly belongs to Caesar, as will be shown further on. The second article, which appears to be written by a gentleman who is afraid to let his name be known to the public, seems to be opposed to recognizing the wish of any nationality in the naming of towns, townships, 'etc. But it looks rather strange, if not prejudicial, that he should lift his voice at this lute hour, after the wishes of all nationalities except the Swedish have been granted, and I wish to say at this point that, though I am of English and German descent and have not a drop of Swedish blood in my veins, I think no loyal citizen and true-hearted man who is familiar with the Swedish people as a race will dare to ascribe his name beneath an article denying that they are as loyal citizens, as moral, religious, honest, Industrious, temperate, and peaceable as any class of people on our American soil. And this being a fact, I would like to ask the gentleman where the serious danger lies in changing the name of this town to Swea City and thereby grunt the wishes of the early settlers of this community, who have nobly and honorably merited all they usk for by the fact that they pitched their tents here, and built their bouses of sod, and fed their stoves with buy when,there was nothing to be seen but a vast prairie spoiled with wolves and other wild beasts, snakes und other venomous serpents, and who, amid these difficulties, have withstood the storms, floods, droughts, and grasshoppers and the thousand other Irials and deprivations connecled with frontier life. And now all they ask is that the name they established over 20 years ago, and is now known all over the United Stales and in Europe, may not bo blotted out. We ask where is there a true-hearted man who dares say the wishes of these people are unjust? If there bo such a man let him answer, and let him be man enough to sign his name beneath tho same. Respectfully, RICHARD M. RICHMOND. THE KEELEY CURE DID IT, Dpi. Nate Beed Details Some of His Experience in Overcoming the Drink Habit He Names the Chicago Newspaper Men Who Swear by Dr. KeeJey and His Gold Cure. Col. Nate Reed, whoso various "scoops" as a newspaper reporter during the war and since have made him one of the best known newspaper men in the country, appeared at Dubuque last Friday with Dr. Leslie E. Keeley. His experience with the Keeley cure is interesting. It corroborates that of thousands of others, and shows that- if a man has made up his mind that he wants to quit drinking, medicine will remove the appetite. Talking to a newspaper reporter he said: "I was an advocate of temperance from the platform long before I secured control of my own appetite. Many a time while I have been talking and preaching from the rostrum for men to give up drink I have felt such an overpowering thirst that it seemed that I could not go on until I went out and got a drink. I had been a drinker until it had become a disease, and my will power was gone. It had ruined me, but I could still warn others and I did it. I have chewed tons of peanuts and swallowed thousands of bottles of pop while attempting to swear off drinking liquor. Liquor was always in my way. I had the ability to do anything in the way of journalism, but it downed me every time. Why, a quart of whisky a day was not an unusual thing for me. I was finally sent to Dwight. To tell the truth, McCullagh of the Globe-Democrat sent me there to see if the Keeley euro was a fake, and said he. would give me a whole page ;f *« . T jij— «i j ii. -n . page. But well-known THE inevletablo split In tho democratic party over tariff reform has boon brought about by a peculiar circumstance. Tho Now York Reform club gave u banquet lust'Sulurday to which Speaker Crisp wus invited, with the understanding that ho would speak. Ho accordingly prepared himself and with Ihe others gave a copy lo tho press. Bui when the speakers wore called only the radical free traders were hoard, and Crisp was not called on although tho guests present shouted for him us soon us Clovelund was done. Mills made u radical free trade argument, and Tom Johnson of Ohio was very frank in his ridicule of the Crisp and Springer programme at the last session. Crisp wae much embarassed, \ ,, ,_, President Harrison told a friend lust week: " Were you to ask me how long I had boon in this position, I would answer ten years. And during all that time it appears there bus not boon a single week without un added sorrow. The ordeals private and public, aro such as I do not care to huvo repeated in my experience."

He is entered In next year's biggest races. The Elraore Eye complains that we credit items to the Elnjore Poet, and says there Is po such i paper. True Henry Watterson on Lincoln. From Cffisur lo Bismurk and Gladstone the world has had its soldiers und its statesmen who rose to eminence und power, step by step; Ihrough a series of geomotricul progression, as it were, each promotion following in regular order, the whole obedient lo a well understood law of cause and effecl. These wore nol whal we cull " men of desliny." They ure men of the lime. They were men whose cause hud a beginning, a middle and an end, rounding off a life with a history; full, It may bo, of interesting and exciting events, but comprehensible and comprehensive, simple, clear and complete. The inspired men are fewer. They rose from shadow and they went in mist. They arrived, God's work upon their lips; they did their office, God's mantle about them; Ihoy passed away, God's holy light between them and the world, leaving behind them a memory half mortal, half myth. Tried by this standard, and observed in an historic spirit, whereshull wefind an illustration more impressive lhan in Abraham Lincoln, whose life, career and dealh might be chanted by a Greek chorus as at once the prelude and tho epilogue of the most Imperial theme of modern times. Born as lowly as the son of God, in a hovel; roared in penury, squalor, with no gleam of llghl nor fair surrounding, it was reserved for Ihis slrango being, lute in life, wlthoul nume or fume or preparation, to bo snatched from obscurity, raised to supreme command at a supreme momenl and intrusled wilh the dosliny of a nation. Where did Shakespear gel his genius? Where did Mozart get his music? Whose hand smole Ihe lyre of Ihe Scotlish plowman and staid the life of the German priest? God alone. And as surely as these were raised up by God, inspired by God, was Abaham Lincoln; and. a thousand years hence no slory. no tragedy, no epic poem will be filled with greater wonder than that which tells of his life and death, If Lincoln was not inspired by God then there is no such thing on if it was. I didn't get the I was cured. Read, the newspaper man, author of the Kentucky Colonel, is a graduate of the cure; Stanley Waterloo, editor of Ihe Chicago Evening Journal, is anolher; Newton McMillan, leading editorial wriler of the Chicago Evening Post; Burl McMillan, city editor of Ihe Herald; city editor of the Times, I can't recall his name; Oliver, assistanl editor of Ihe Inter-Ocean, and Buchanan of the Inter-Ocean, the best descriptive writer on the Chicago press. He is an Ohio boy and has done work thai was simply wonderful; whole arllcles of his have been copied in the New York Sun and Labouchere in London Trulh has accorded him high praise. People may think lhal this looks bad for newspaper men, but it is always the brightesl minds luul fall the readiest victims to drink. They seek stimulanls and alas seek loo oflen. Bui these men I have mentioned are at their work, with no appetite for liquor, and would nol have il were you lo sel il before Ihem. I see some papers are chary aboul speaking of us because Ihey say it is all an ad- verlisemenl of the Keeley cure. We have got past thut stage In Chicago and Ihe Chicago Tribune has acknowledged lhal Us circulalion has increased some 20,000 because of Ihe prominence it has given this cure as a matter of news, wilhoul Ihe reward of a cent in adver- lising. People wanted to read it and Ihe paper gave It to them. We now have a nationaj league which was organized at Dwight last summer, and we begin our campaign, our crusade against liquor, here. Murphy is employed by this league. Dr. Keeley has nothing lo do wilh It. Pays nothing to the work. We claim that Keeley stands with such men in grout discoveries as Pasleur, Jenner and Harvey. Look al me I was a hard, notorious drinker for years. I tried in every way; did everything under God's heaven to reform and failed every time. How do you suppose I felt Ihen when one morning at Dwight upon awakening I saw a botlle of whisky silling on the lable? I looked al il. There it was. I could reach over and help myself. But I did not want it. Didn't touch it. And have not touched it since. Now Ihere is Ihe record of a man who was once a drunkard. What a warning to you young newspaper men.

Often before reaching this part of the system of penance the affliction hfis been cured Some are cured instantly, others on their way home, and others long after they reach home. Many break off portions of the wall on which the church structure stands and take them home with them. The church property was once surrounded by a beautiful hedge, which has been trimmed nearly to the ground, and visitors have had the pieces blessed and taken home. Relics of saints are put near the altar beside an oil painting of Mary, the mother of God, and the infant Jesus. In this corner the afflicted kneel and pray Incessantly. Beads prayer books, pictures of the church' and every conceivable religious article are sold in a small house erected for the purpose near the church. The rich and poor alike visit this shrine. Many rich people contribute liberally. The poor give all that they can afford. LUVERNE HAS A SPOUTEB, An Old Well Begins to Flow After- Four Yenrs-A Peculiar Case. Four years ago D. Ramtn dug a well on his farm at LuVerne 117 feet deep. He put up a windmill and was able to secure a fair supply of water. But one morning last week, the News says, Mr. Ramm noticed a small stream of water flowing across the yard and upon tracing it to its source was astonished to find that it came from the well which was full and running over at the top. The News adds: The phenomenon Is all the more strange, occurring as it did after a considerable period almost without rainfall, and at least four years after the sinking of the well. The flow Is about equal to the discharge from an inch pipe under ordinary pressure, and Mr. Ramm is delighted with what he considers a very valuable addition to his property. The flow may be accounted for upon tho theory that the drill passed very close to, or possibly stopped just a little short of a slrong vein of waler, which in time burst through the thin wall of earth and came to the surface as described. Be this as It may, Mr. Ramm now has a flowing well In place of one that has heretofore required a pump driven by a good sized wind mill in order to bring the water to the surface. The News has long believed that flows may be obtained anywhere along the Prairie Creek valley and this spontaneous action of Ihe well would seem to confirm such belief.
