THE Courier wants "no double dealing" in the campaign. It has a long editorial on the subject. And yet it absolutely refuses to notice Gov Boies' statement about third termism: "Inm conscientiously opposed to third terms in an office as important as that of governor of a great state and in this view the unbroken precedents of all political parties in our state teach that my views are in substantial accord with those of the masses of all our people." Here tho governor says the people have wisely decided that third terms should not be given and yet the Courier is supporting him for a third term, and refuses to even notice the "double dealing." Let the Courier set an example of no double dealing by tolling its renders whether Gov. Boies is right on third termism, and if he is not right about this let it explain why his opinion is worth anything on any other matter. oppress me So much, as it animates me for the conflict. As you bid me, I will now take up the old republican banner and hold it aloft as best I can, and we will have en- graven upon it in the brightest letters the old motto, ' A school house on every hilltop and no saloon in the valley.' Our war cry shall be, ' This is no time to compromise with the saloon." Joining hands with every one who opposes the saloon, we will march to certain victory and thus make good the old republican boast that 'prohibition has become the settled policy of the state." 1 _ Senator Punk, a member of the republican platform committee, says: "Our objection to the endorsement of local option or any other alleged specific for the saloon evil was based largely on these grounds: No statute looking to the ends of moral reform should bear a partisan stamp." WHY SARUtf WON'T BOLT, The Venerable Ex-Senator Writes Vigorous Letter on the Sitna- tion in This State. The Carroll Herald's Plucky Fight—J. S. Clarkson's Views on the National Situation. A UNITED STATES revenue officer comes into Iowa, nabs a citizen on evidence which is not disclosed, hales him to a distant place for trial, and the community commends the neatness and dispatch with which the matter is attended to. But the appearance of an outside constable to enforce the slate law is a warrant for organized hostilities, and we are all ready to take up arms if the violator be removed or summarily dealt with. The same saloon man who snaps his fingers at the Iowa statutes watches the United States regulations as though they were the edicts of fate. (This is one of the anomalies of our political development. For in the beginning the union was nearly wrecked by the Pennsylvania whiskey rebellion, which was exactly vice versa. There the whiskey men obeyed the state law but defied the revenue collectors. But George Washington put troops near the scene of action and by his courage saved the government, and established a precedent of enormous importance. Later the South Carolina cotton planters defied the revenue officers again, and Andrew Jackson was equal to the emergency. In every state the people as a rule have obeyed and assisted in enforcing the laws enacted by their local government, and looked with suspicion upon interference from outside authority. But here in Iowa we have become completely turned around, and while we rejoice to see a United Slates marshal act with vigor we applaud a governor who openly argues that nothing can bo done to enforce state law, and in discussing the statutes append "where they can bo enforced." Some day we will elect a governor with a little of George Washington's or Andrew Jackson's blood in his veins. THE democratic tariff committee have fallen on troublous times. Their bearings are anything but satisfactory to the free traders. Last week Gov, McCorkle, the democratic ex. ecutive of West Virginia, appeared to protest against removing protection from coal, and the following colloquy took place: "'When wore you elected governor of West Virginia!' " Last November.' "The platform upon which you were elected was for a reduction of duties, was it not?' "Yes, sir.' "Then why are you advocating protection?' "Wo are grout producers of coul and 1 think wo ought to bo protected.' " Czar Rued when ho was dono created a laugh by saying that with the assistance of a democratic governor elected on a demooratio platform ho hoped to succeed in .showing tho democrats the falacy of their position. Tho committee a couple of weeks ago had also an unpleasant conference with some delegated from the Bermuda Islands. They snid that they boro all the tariff on what they shipped into tho United States, and not the American consumer. Bryan asked how they know, and one said: "Well, as secretary of tho farmers' alliance 1 was cognizant of tho facts relating to tho shipment of 10,000 boxes of onions to New York this season. Tho duty on each box was about 1)8 cents and tho freight l(i cents, making f>4 cents, and tho onions were sold at an average price of 50 cents a box. Now, if wo did not pay the duties, I would like to know who did." Then they said they also paid tho duties on what tho United States shipped to them. Tho free traders thought they had them caught, and Bryan asked: " How can it be possible that Bermuda pays tho duty on goods shipped out of Bermuda to the United States and also pays the duty on goods shipped from tho United States into Bermuda.?" Tho further report reads: "Tiii: Bermuda delegates explained tho w*:iu\i.v contradiction instantly by the BtaU.-i/j:;.'. that 'tho goods shipped from the LViUi'j Btates do not come in competition with Vui; same kind of articles produced iu Bermuda.' Their tariff duties are levied M;J the free trade plan, on articles •which Uiijy cannot themselves produce. They ugiwrtod that such a duty as that is - iiia by tho consumers. They fur- \er stated that tho duties in the United ute» are levied on goods which the United produces in largo quantities; and \ consequently their ouious and potatoes ONE of Eugene Field's cleverest skits is about the tramp printer who worked "with Dana on tho New York Sun," and one of the most entertaining of late books is Greeley's letters to Dana, while the former was in Washington tending to politics and the latter was editing the Tribune. Dana is tho most picturesque figure in American journalism. He started the Sun twenty years ago us nn indepenclentdemocratic paper, but has always favored a protective tariff and silver money, and has hated Cleveland so cordially that the president is said to have been very profane at one time in referring to him, when he dubbed the president "The Stuffed Prophet," etc. But since Cleveland's second election ho has changed his tactics, and has been vigorously supporting the administration. Hehasout- Wattersoned Waterson in demanding free trade, and has proved the truth of the yankee maxim "if you want to bust 'em, jino 'em." Just now the democratic tariff committee is listening to representations from the manufacturers and laborers, and the Sun says: "Manufacturers, consumers, workmen, wages, profits, labor, they have nothing to do with. They are to lay a tariff for the purpose of revenue and revenue only. To admit any article free, or to screw up or down the duty on any article with a view to benefitting manufacturers or laborers or farmers or planters, or any person or class of industry or occupation, will be an act of robbery, fraud and spoliation. The democrats would tear a hole in the constitution every time they permitted the remission of duties, or the imposition of duties, for any other purpose and with any other aim than that of revenue. Mr. Wilson's committee is not to offer tho leavings and scourings of protection as a substitute for the tariff for revenue only. There can be no substitute for that and no protection in it." But the best thing the Sun has said lately is on Gov. Boies' policy of tariff "elimination." After quoting his remarks at Grundy Center, it says: " This is what it is to be a democrat, however ablo and earnest, in a republican state where you are looking for election by means of republican votes. While the democrats are skinning protection and protection is setting up its last howl, Mr. Boies kindly invites the lowans to consider that the tariff is a non-partisan non-issue. For the purposes of the campaign Iowa is to be an independent nation, a reservation such as the Brooklyn mugwumps dream of, into which the noise of the political captains and the shouting at Washington and elsewhere cannot penetrate." Tho Sun then goes on to read his duty to Uncle Horace as follows: " His defeat, if he be defeated, will bo attributed by the republicans to a reaction in favor of protection. The more eager he is to avoid discussing national issues tho more eager will they bo to discuss them. In 18(13 Iowa showed itself to be still faithful to the unconstitutional tariff. It gave a groat plurality for the culminating atrocity of class legislation. Will 'Mr. Boies, who has worked so hard in former campaigns for tariff reform, campaigns, too, in which there was no chance that tho result in Iowa would affect tariff legislation at Washington, will Mr. Boies let the majority of his fellow citizens in Iowa continue in their delusion and ignorance? How can ho resist tho opportunity of instructing them as to tho iniquity of protection and tho blessings of tho tariff for revenue only? "Gov. Boies is a man of capacity and thougbtfulness, yet he throws away this great opportunity of converting Iowa and bringing it into tho fold of the unprotected sheep." Mayor Trout of Roanoke, Va., is another official who believes he was elected to enforce law. A lot of southern bloods concluded to indulge in their usual pastime of hanging a negro and came to the jail to get him. Mayor Trout had the militia fire into them when they refused to retire, and a dozen were killed and 18 wounded. S. M. Clark, who reported the republican platform, says flatly that it does not declare for local option: " It is clear on the face of it that the plank provides no method, and that was its history before the committee. It was suggested to make the plank favor high license. That was summarily rejected without debate or vote. A resolution for 'local option and high license' was offered and voted down. The committee would not legislate method into the plank or take upon the convention the work of the legislature. Thnt is the fact, and we merely state it." There is a "sweet reasonableness," as Matthew Arnold calls it, about Geo. E. Roberts' best editorial work that puts him in the front row. His discussion of "Minis- tors in Politics" is amiable but pointed, two qualities not generally found together. E. A. Ott, candidate for lieutenant-governor on the populist ticket, is only 20 years old, and tho constitution requires that to hold the office he should be 30, wherefore he resigns his place. The Register says it is unnecessary, as he would never be called on anyway to qualify, and ho might as well run as anyone. Czar Reed and tho republicans put Speaker Crisp in a tight place last week. The democrats with a great flourish had denounced the republican rule by which the speaker was allowed to sit on dilatory motions. So tho republicans decided to try them by making such motions. And iu the end Crisp refused without any rule at all to put an appeal made by Col. Hepburn, thereby breaking all parlamentary precedents and showing that Reed's rules were absolutely necessary. Reed gave him an unmerciful scathing, and Col. Henderson also. When asked afterwards what he thought of Crisp as a Czar, Reeds aid: "He is only a cheap tin imitation." Lafe Young stumping tour. has begun a five weeks' In a recent letter ex-Senator .Tns. Harlan states why he will not support an independent prohibition movement this fall. The concluding paragraphs are as follows: The election of your proposed nominees does not seem to me within tho range of possibility. Hence every republican vote cast for them will weaken the republican party and strengthen the democratic party. Your proposed organization gives the democracy of Iowa, in my opinion, its only hope of success at the next election. And if Horace Boies should be again elected governor of Iowa with a democratic majority in the general assembly two things will doubtless happen, viz: 1. A democratic United States senator will bo elected to misrepresent Iowa and vote steadily against republican principles in that great forum from the 4th of March, 1895, until the 4th of March, 1901. 2. The existing Iowa prohibitory law will certainly be repealed, and some sort of a license law enacted in its place. On the other hand, if Frank D. Jackson shall be elected governor, with £ republican majority in the general as sembly, a republican United States senator will be elected to support republican principles during that long period, and the prohibitory liquor law will continue to stand as the law of the state and be enforced in all the counties where its enforcement is practicable, and be supplemented by other restrain ing laws capable of enforcement in the other counties of the state where an experience of ten or twelve years dem onstrates that the existing prohibit ory law cannot be made effective. As old-time republicans, following in the foot-prints of Abraham Lincoln and as practical friends of temperance I do not see how it is possible for you and me and my friend Pinkham to hes itate in making a choice between theS' two propositions. If we republicans should thus direct ly assist the democracy to'vvin a victory in Iowa, where we have an undoubted majority of the legal voters, it would be, as it seems to me, like committing suicide in the name of virtue to enable the devil to triumph over our own soul without the least prospect of the slight est benefit to come to any good caus< from tho gruesome sacrifice. With tho greatest respect and esteem, your sincere friend, JAS. HARLAN. No 'Good to Newspapers. The Des Moines Capital quotes from THE UPPER DES MOINES: " The Carroll Herald is being attacked for opposing liquor selling and gambling at IT will never be said that Frank D. Jackson couldn't make a speaking campaign. Tho following paragraph from his speech on Uncle Horace's plan of "elimination" is one of tho best things that has lately appeared: " So the governor proposes to eliminate ' from discussion tho present situation of this country under democratic rule, which ho labored so industriously to convince Iowa voters was for tho best interest of our country. For years tho democratic party of Iowa has been crying for freo silver; and now after having received tho support of tho thousands of free silver voters all over Iowa during tho past four years; just now when the governor has tho opportunity as a recognized candidate for United States senator to advance tho interests of free silver and to show to tho free silver voters of Iowa what tho democratic platform meant when it declared for 1'roo silver, the governor proceeds to eliminate this question, to eliminate tho thousands of silver men all over Iowa who believed the democratic party was honest in its declarations on this question, to eliminate the tariff question, to eliminate from discussion tho million idle workingmen of our country and the reasons for their enforced idleness, to eliminate from discussion tho demoralized markets for Iowa farmers and tho reason for tho same. In short, the governor proposes to eliminate everything except a discussion of tho management of our state institutions. If I mistake not tho temper of Iowa voters this fall the governor's plan of elimination will go on until the 7th day of November, when by one mighty voice the people of Iowa will proceed to eliminate tho democratic party." President Cleveland has again shown his leaning towards eastern aristocracy by appointing Van Alen ambassador to Italy. Van Alen is a millionaire relative of the Astorwho leftAmei'icato locate in England. His appointment will be resisted in the senate. roads through, and from that on bis in- ,erest waned and no orphan's home has jeen begun. The Cedar Rapids Republican reports lis Chicago trouble and adds a few notes of interest: Mr. Turner secured lis release from the city prison and Thursday he was under the care of a jerson designated for that purpose. Thursday night he departed to his lome in'Sycamore. Mr. Pierce, who las attained the extreme old age of 79 vears, complained that he had been mistreated while in confinement. He iscribes his entire mental trouble and iiillucinations to a severe attack of nightmare which he had during Wednesday night. Tho contents of his :ell were removed because it was 'eared he might attempt to destroy himself, a precaution that is taken with all prisoners who are mentally affected. He was humanely and kindly treated while in custody, but of course could not be provided in a public jail with the conveniences which he enjoys at borne. At the same time it must be idmitted that the city -could afford bettor accommodations for a certain class of people who are occasionally so unfortunate as to be temporarily deprived of their liberty. IN THIS NEIGHBOKHOOD. The LuVerno schools have a "harvest festival" Friday evening. Hev. Sanderson has been in Emtnets- burg five years, the full limit allowed. Bode dedicated a new Methodist church a week ago Sunday, costing 1,600. Mason City proposes to get up a big north Iowa fair next year in connection with her races. The largest butter check paid in one month to a, Palo Alto countv farmer is §196.18. Can Kossuth beat it? It is reported that Rev. Flanigun will leave Eagle Grove. He prefers to stay only a short time in a place. Frank Aheran tried to jump on the train at Emmetsburg a week ago. They amputated his leg, and he may recover. C. N. Price of Spirit Lake was crawling up on some ducks last week when his gun went off. He loses a leg just below the knee. Both at Clarion and Webster City the county fairs last week had bigger crowds than ever before. Kossuth should keep in the procession. .1. E. Rowan, candidate for the senate from Wright county, is a preacher, an insurance man, and a faith curist. He ought to be able to get there. A sister of Wm, Goodrich has been visiting him in Hebron. She comes from Wisconsin and reports great damage to cranberry marshes and timber from fires. At Webster City a week ago the Paige Comedy company had a real marriage on the stage. Two of the ictors wore joined by a local minister at the close of the regular performance. Elmore Post: Horace Hoxio of Al- jona was in town Monday. He says there is plenty of money in Algona to loan on farm land security at 8 per cent, with 2i per cent, commission.

The flaily papers report that Miss Edith Train of Fort Dodge has been appointed national inspecting and installing officer of the Woman's Relief corps. Miss Train is the energetic secretary of the Upper Des Moines Editorial association and a practical printer o£ experience. A lately gotten- up catalogue for the Fort Dodge schools is a testimonial to her taste as a job printer. All brethren of the press will join in congratulations over this well-deserved honor which has been conferred on her. the county fair. The Herald is plucky, however, and will see the fight through. This fight is one that every county in the state will have if we get a local option law again." It then says: Yes and what is more the whisky sellers will boycott any paper that dares open its columns against them. And when once established the saloon has influence in keeping other people from patronizing the papers it does not like. The newspapers of Iowa have nothing to gain and everything to lose by a re-enthronement of the saloon power in Iowa. We are glad that the Carroll Herald has had the courage to attack gambling and liquor selling at the Carroll county fair. Editor Hungerford should have tlio support of all the decent people of Carroll county, but he will not get it. Some decent people are afraid to say their souls are their own. Honnott Mitchell closes his letter of acceptance in u characteristic paragraph: y Gentlemen, I accept the honor you place upon mo, and consent to become your candidate. I am not unconscious of the groat responsibility that will now attach itself to me. But its weight does not Bennett Mitchell wont from Algona to Spirit Lake. Senator Funk in a friendly notice says: "His mind once anchored in an abstract conclusion, he is immovable as the rock of ages, no matter what the results. But for the stubbornly impractical side of his character, Bennett Mitchell might have been an ecclesiastical figure of national prominence, instead of closing his ministerial career in charge of third rate appointments and being used as a figurehead of an alleged temperance movement, of which the rankest enemy of temperance reform in all the stale will bo the chief beneficiary." Jack Ilavorley, the minstrel man, is in an insane asylum. Gov. Boies made an ablo presentation of Iowa's resources on Iowa day at Chicago. It was such a speech as a governor ought to make, and is about as different from his speech at New York as it well could be. Then corn was raised at a net loss, now the first thing ho mentions is our groat lead in corn production. Archbishop Honnossy has signified his elevation by coming out strongly for parochial against public schools. His addresses at Dubuquo are considered as directed against Archbishop Ireland's policy. J. C. Kelloy of the Sioux City Tribune gets the revenue collcctorship of this district. A man and woman got married at the Webster City fair. Now the woman asks for a divorce from a prior husband.

At Seattle lately J. S.

Ho added: I believe in, first, an American policy of finance—a policy which will maintain gold, silver and paper as money. After we have established such an American policy in the interest of our own silver product, as well as gold, I admit there would be wisdom in gaining an international policy as to gold and silver both as money.

Daiiiol I>ioreo Jumps from a Chicago Hotel Window—Ho Has a History In Connection with This Section. Headers of THE UPPEK DES MOINES will recall the big orphan's homo which was planned some years ago in Dickinson county, just west of Estherville, by Daniel Pierce of Sycamore, 111. Mr. Pierce was through this section many times and is a well known figure, and a local interest attaches to a recent happening to him in Chicago. He was a guest at the Pullman house last Wednesday, and at 8 o'clock in the morning jumped from his bedroom window and landed on a raised awning beneath. He was secured by the police and restrained until identified and was then taken home. He attributes his trouble to nightmare. Mr. Pierce is 79 years old, and his wealth is estimated at from one to foui millions. W. L. Joslyn knows him well and says he is a very shrewd business man. He was an orphan hansel! and began life without a dollar. He determined to start a home for like waifs and arrange it so that when they came of age they would have a team and a small amount of money. He bought four sections of land in a body and was about to begin operations when the question of roads through his land arose and he insisted on fencing the whole tract in. The supervisors o DicUinsori objected and finally opened jury at Webster City to make it a special point to ferret out booze venders. Judge Hyatt is a democrat who believes law can be enforced in Iowa. Blue Earth Post: Roy Eastman arrived home from Algona Monday evening for a week's vacation. He is still behind the counters of Durdall's clothing store and is a No. 1 salesman. Hugh Smith ran the Goldfield Chronicle for the editor while he was on an excursion, and endorsed the independent candidate for senator. The Chronicle man is home now and says he is for the regular nominee, and that Hugh goth iin into a boat. A Hebron correspondent to the Lu- Verne News writes: Miss May Stend- man was up from Algona to spend Sunday with her mother and uncle. She speaks highly of the school in Algona. The county may well feel proud of its school, for "it is a dandy." Forest City Summit: Kossuth county will vote at the coming election upon the question of building a §7,000 jail. They need a better''cage" over there very badly, as incarcerated criminals have at difierent times dug their way out of the present structure with a poker or a broom stick, Des Moinos Register: Miss Kate Smith, daughter of Representative John G. Smith of Algona, is in the city stopping at the home of C. W, and Mrs. Budcl, 1327 North Seventh street. Miss Smith is a gifted musician and a charming mistress of the violin. While in the city she will take lessons on the violin. Hugh Smith is in business at Goldfield. The Chronicle says: H. R. Smith has been very busy for the past few days rigging up his building, manufacturing counters, etc., for his lunch counter, and if he does not slip a cog will have his coffee hot by tomorrow. He will undoubtedly do quite a business, as a good lunch counter is a mighty handy institution in any town. A terrible accident occurred near LuVerno last week, A three-year-old son of F. R. Bonkofsky climbed into an oat bin and found a bottle of carbolic acid which he spilled over himself. When found his llesh had been burned so badly that help was of no avail. Dr. Lacy was called but could do nothing. The parents 'were in Chicago for the fair, but returned at once. Monday Col. Spencer handed us a. circular from a counterfeit money establishment in New York, and remarked that he had received several lately. It is cleverly gotten up, and although it requests that publicity be avoided, publicity it must have, as the "green goods" swindle is the most r - torious of all. As a rule no counterfeits are ever sold or sent. The victim is shown good money and buys a box of it. When he gets home his box is full of sawdust or old papers. The most conspicuous enclosure in this envelope to the colonel is an alleged newspaper clipping about treasury plates lost or stolen from Washington on which counterfeits have been printed which cannot be detected. This gives an air of plausibility to the letter. The victim thinks there is really something in it, a delusion aided by the closing paragraph of the letter: "P. S, If on receiving this letter there should be any official notice stamped on the envelope pay no attention to it whatever as it is put there by the now administration to find out who has got the plates as they are missing from the treasury." Tho letter offers $7,000 for $500, $10,000 for $650, and $20,000 for §1,000, and after a long lingo about the matter says: " Now my friend to do this business safely, it must be done 'face to face.' Experience has taught me that this is the only absolutely safe way to transact this business, \indmost satisfactory for us both." In conclusion it gives two rules to be observed: "]. Do not as long as you live over write me a letter; if you do I shall refuse to receive it, and furthermore, all business relations between us will end. Don't forget this and remember I mean exactly what I say. "2. If you feel disposed to handle my goods go to some telegraph office where you are not known and send me a telegraph dispatch by the Western Union if possible; sicrn any name to the telegram but your own and I will know who it is by the exact word and number on the enclosed slip. On receipt of your telegram I will immediately send you simple and plain instructions how to see and know me and will appoint a place of meeting at some hotel in some town within 50 miles of this city. Don't attempt to come on to find me without first telegraphing to me for instructions. Send telegrams, which will be promptly received, to the enclosed address." The telegram they included to be sent back is as follows: "A. B. Cole, 304 BroomeStreet, New York City, N. Y.: Send Pedigree of Banquet, No. 997." It is to be signed by a fictitious name, the money dealer kindly advising: " Do not give your name or address under any circumstances to the telegraph operator; should he ask you tell him that it is not necessary. I will know who you are by the word and number as above." A great many people are taken in every year on this swindle. They go to New York, meet some bunco man, show their money and leave it there.
