SHINING MAH1L Death is socking its shining these October days. Oliver Wendell Holmes, the poet nearest the hearts of the American people, follows Professor Swing to the Spirit land, and Pennsylvania's war g6V- ernor, Andrew O. Cuftin, follows our own honored Kirkwood. Of those who went into the conflict for the Union with mature powers very few are left. The boys alone remain to us. In his way Holmes was a participant in the groat struggle for freedom and the Union which did not begin with the war, but which the war brought to its decisive close. It is Worth every man's noting that America never produced a great poet whose^heart was not true to human liberty and the rights of the lowly. The death of Prof. David Swing brings up hi the public mind his trial for heresy by Prof, Patton, now president or Princeton College, twenty years ago. In that trial, which lasted six weeks and interested the country at large, Prof. Swing was sustained by the localsynod by a vote of 48 to 13. The prosccuti jn then appealed, and Prof.Swing withdrew from the church and made no appearance in the general synod, which ignored his resignation and expelled him from the church for heresy. His ministry as pastor of an Independent church in Chicago since that time has made him better understood as a religious leader, and to-day no one would think of classing him with the superficial egotists of the Briggs stripe who are trying to pose as martyrs. Prof. Swing was a man who preached the Christian faith as he understood it, avoiding controversy, and never seeking the notoriety so pleasing to many who continually advertise their liberal views as a desperate expedient to keep themselves from dropping out of public notice. ous cheering) and he is to-dfcy fighting and binning another great battle for America and Americans. I have the great honor io present to this gf and audience the next president of the United States." DOLUVISK At The democrats have two arguments ii support of free Wool. One of them is thn the tariff on wool never gave the Ameri can farmer a cent's better prices, and the other is that there will re an immense cheapening of woolen goods because the manufacturers will get their wool so much cheaper. They generally use both arguments in the same speech, but the never put them together to see how the; look in each other's company. The republic.ins have so placed the! nominees for supervisors, in this county that the entire western half of the couiit t will be left without any represcntatioi whatever on thelJoard after January first —Courier. This is a much apprcctatec concession of the splendid prospects of th republicans, which will be found to bo wholly warranted. And it will bo found too, that the west half of the county wil be taken care of all right. It was the same In Connecticut at the recent town elections as it was in Vermont and Maine. You had to go back thirty years, when it was considered a penitentiary offense to bo a democrat if you practiced it, to find'sucli an instance of everybody voting the republican ticket. Populist members of the two houses have Introduced bills during the present congress calling for appropriations of money aggregating $96,150,000,000, or . nine and one-half times more money than there Is at present in use in the. whole world. The Sioux City Journal says "the present tactics of democratic leadership Is just the reverse of two' and' four years ago. Then it sought to persuade men that prosperity was adversity, and how It tries to paint adversity as prosperity." EXPENSIVE POLITICS. John M. Crapo, of Burlington, Iowa, general western manacer of the Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance Company, was interviewed last week on the cffectof populist political ascendency in Kansas and Nebraska on the money loaning business in those states. He was quoted at great length, and one of the things he said was this: "The Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance company, which I represent and which has $40,000,000 loaned to American farmers at low rates, promptly discontinued its loan business in Kansas when populists took control of the law-making power and the state government, except to collect all outstanding. loans which •have'ever -since and are now bei'ng- col* Jccted as rapidly as possible-." •. . ' This action of the Connecticut .Mutual was in lino with the policy ; of eastern loauers in general. The conservative companies got their money out of Kansas as quickly as they could, and when, .other companies came in with the money necessary to pay these loans, they were• able to and did exact the highest interest rates than were paid anywhere else in the country. With the republicans circulating Cleveland's letters and Wilson's London speeches as campaign documents it would look as though true democrats .• and reformers ought to have nothing to complain of. The New York Illustrated American of October 13, gives very fine portraits of Gov. Jackson and his promising.family of boys, which makes it an interesting aid popular number with Iowa readers. j.

Do!liver, of Fort .Dodge, who is always a favorite With a Des Moines audience, and the applause which greeted hm gave evidence of his continued popularity. The closest attention was given his exhaustive speech which was frequently punctuated with well earnest applause. He spoke in part as follows: THE STORY OK INCOMPETENCE. The popular grievance against the democratic management at Washington covers every department of its ac tivity. . At home and abroad the .same story of incompetence is told. The administration began business .by the most humiliating blunder in the history of our diplomacy. It found the Hawaiian monarchy dead, and the lit- tJe republic offering the Sandwich Isl* ands to the United States without money and without price. Without a motive except the petty jealousy of-the secretary of state, the business. of. undoing the work of Gen. Harrison, was ?egun and for more than a year,'by ;he use of every weapon of duplicity and cunning, the odious conspiracy was forwarded, to destroy th) revolu- iionary government of President -Dole and reinstate the remnant of a decayed and prostrate despotism.

No merchandise laid down in our importing cities can be cheap enough to compensate us for the idleness of millions of willing hands and the poverty of a million American homes. The republican party refuses to exchange American civilization for any possible prospect of cheap goods; it refuses to lay Ameri* can manhood and Womanhood 'On the bargain counters of Europe. Nor are we deluded by the new opportunities ot being able, through a generous surrender of our own market place, to invade the neutral markets of the earth. Even if we had a chance to go into the neutral markets, we are not likely to be guilty of the folly of kicking ourselves from our own front door, simply to enjoy the luxury of crawling into somebody's back yard. The neutral markets, already occupied by two or three generations of English and German merchants, have nothing to offer us in any .sense equal to -what we lose by accepting the standard of life required for an equal competition with the old world.

Congressman Dolliver is down for four speeches in Palo Alto county.s Horace Boies has delivered his campaign speech, but what ho said was less noteworthy than what he omitted to say. His speech is about what would be expected of a Eip Van Winkle after a four years' sleep. He does not make any reference to the administration at Washington, por mention the name of Cleveland or any other party leader. He does not seem to have heard what the democratic congress has been doing, for he does not mention it to praise or condemn, and though he devotes the usual space to the support of free trade theories, ho does not refer to the tariff bill which his party has actually passed. He does not seem to have heard of fusion, and despite the fact that there is no democrat running for congress in his own district, and that ho will be compelled to vote for a republican or a populist, he makes a vigorous onslaught upon the latter. This is a hard year for Boies. DOUBLE WEDDING. At the home of Mr. Lloyd, r of Irvington, Wednesday, evening, Oct. 3rd, Mr. Will Lloyd was united in marriage with Miss Eva M. Schoff.

ScHENCk, and their families. If anybody wants to know who is the choice of the republican masses for presi- ident he should read of the reception accorded to McKinley on his trip through the west last week. We take it there is no other man of any party in this country who could, at this time of comparatively little excitement, have called forth such demonstrations, McKinley may never be president. It is a singular fact, as Illustrated in the cases of Clay, Webster and Blaine, that the fittest and best men, often, fail of reaching that highest mark of their ambition, But there has been no day since 1893 when, if the republican masses of the United States had been called on to name their next presidential candidate, the choice would have been any other than McKinley, NOTICE:—The undersigned have sold out and all parties having an account will please call and settle at once.— & SARCHETT, Irvington.—3 The Register reporter with the ley party at Ames speaks of McKjnley making the mistake of "locating Gov, Jackson as a product of the Agricultural College." Probably it js too much to say of any successful man that be is "the product" of any institution, but there Is at least one alumnus of the Agricultural College jn Algona who knew Frank Jackson well as a student of that Institution. As usual, McKlnjey was right. Gov, Jackson is a graduate of the literary department of the Agricultural College and of the law department of the State University. Ja introducing GQV. McKinjoy at LJn* PQ\H, lifeb,., Jplin M, Thurstow, SftiiJ: "Jn that famous ride of history wh,en Stori- ro4e from WJwciiester to rescue jus THE WORLD AT CALL'S, The World, with its exciting and handsome scenery will be seen at Call's Opera House, to-morrow night. Mr. Emery, the leading man, is a painstaking, clever actor, and gives an excellent portrayal of a rolicking, heroic sailor, and from his very entrance be captivates his audience by his easy, smooth style of acting. There is no attempt at ranting nor of capturing the audience by any other than pure acting of the higher order, and Mr, Emery's popularity is solely due to his sterling worth as an, actor. The amount or ingenuity shown in the construction of the play and its realistic scenes and the mechanical skill, re- guired to carry out the conception are, in themselves sufficient to provoke the? admiration of theatergoers. But in addition to this tbe drama itself is a thrilling one. The sinking of the sbip at sea and the great raft scene on the ocean are vivid illustrations of tbepos* sibility of stage eaiU&ntry. For the next sis days or until further notice I will sell at way dpwn prices as this is the time of year " ' clearing sale,—J, R, o the patriotism of the American press, without regard to party, tlia't'the >eople of tbe United States were not made partakers of this iniquity. Its esponsibility rests upon the adminis- ration that invented and against the protests of the American people, prosecuted the "policy of infamy." Turning from the. field of foreign relations let us look for a moment at the department of the interior. If there is one duty in the discharge of which the American people are substantially agreed, it is that the old age of the Union army'shall not bear the burdens of infirmity and poverty without the kindly assistance of the Nation which it defended. That obligation is the highest contract into which the American people have ever entered. Large as the aggregate pension appropriation is, yet when divided among the disabled veterans, their Widows arid orphan chilaren.it is at best a. pitiful' and inadequate expression of the-National gratitude. It is a pour exchange for the youth and and strength which the enlisting regiments of the Union army gave to the National defense. But meagre and and ineffective for its purpose as the pension roll is, ifc has been selected by the administration as the most conspicuous and open field for reform. THIRTY MILLIONS OF OUTRAGES. In the first months of the administration 15,000 veterans were stricken from the rolls without notice, except a printed circular containing a formal recital to the effect that the pensioner's disability, as shown ,by the evidence,on file, no longer existed in a pensionable degree. The statement contained in the circular was invariably a falsehood; since the evidence on file, referred to, was the original evidence on which the pension allowance had been adjudicated by the bureau, Congress called a halt on these wicked and disgraceful proceedings, so that many of the pensioners have been reinstated and a decent compliance with the law extorted from the management of the pension office. In the fight for the rights of the old soldiers in the present congress, it is proper to say that many democrats stood by the side of the republican party, and the old soldiers of the United States will no easily forget the beautiful and manly tribute to the integrity of his old com rades, of tbat splendid example of pat riptism and democracy combined, Gen Sickles, of New York. In my judg ment, notwithstanding the fact tha the survivors of the U nion army are growing fewer year after year, theii foreign commerce of the whole world, outside of our country. In other words, American prosperity is in partnership with American wages, and if you strike down the wage level, you kill a prosperity, for which no possible commerce with other countries can furnish a com- ; p~ensation. So it is that every manufacturing city in the world stands in eager expectancy while the democratic party begins to take down the defenses which the protective tariff has raised about the American market place. Remove the protective tariff and whatever American factories survive','Will survive by placing the cost of production,.including the wages of labor, upon a substantial equality with the conditions that surround the" competing industries abroad; Both experience and common sense confirm tbe truth of this proposition. The McKinley law gave to American cities the work of making goods for the American market place. In England the trade of Leeds with < the United States decreased 8V per cent*, that is to say the $4,000,000 worth brought here from London in 1890• shrank to 1 but $500,000 in 1893'.-V We have not worn any less clpthes,we have only made them in the , United States, in stead of purchasing theih in Leeds'. The city of Bradford, the center of the English woolen industry, lost $30,000,000 in trade with the United States, half of its total business with this country, in forty-five months under the McKinley law. The city of Sheffield found the cutlery business transferred, so far as American sales were concerned, to the United States. These losses to English commerce imply no hardship to the people of the United States; they mean only, that the American people were engaged in doing their own work. M'KINLEY AND WILSON COMPAKED. In 1890 William Mc'Kinley was burned in effigy at an indignation meeting held in Sheffield. His friends never felt very badly about it, for he never pretended to be a candidate for the good will of any foreign country. I know him well enough to believe that he would rather read the commercial report with which the R. G. Dun Co. summed ; up the conditions of business in the United States for the fiscal year ending with July, 1892—"A fiscal year never matched in the whole history of the country in volume of industrial productions, in the magnitude of domestic exchanges or in foreign trade" he would have found more joy in bushels of wheat to be lost bf redttcW the per napita eonsuinptiofi from five bushels to four, But fof the faftn it can do more, and iti 1890 was shaped by the republieati party so as not only to secure the employment of American labor in all possible food consuming occupations, but also to guarantee to; the American farm a reasonable pro* tection in its own market place against the importation of Competing agficul* turar products. The agricultural schedule of the act ot i860 operated instattt- ly to enlarge the chances of our own people to sell barley, bread stuff, cer* e.als, hve stock, poultry, eggs, butter, Irtiit, vegetal) es and food supplies of all kinds. The act of 1894, with a treachery to our home interests that would be amazing, if it had not become characteristic, practically abolished the existing rates and invited the importers of agricultural products to enter the market place and take, without* money and without price, the chances of selling which the act of 1890 gave to the exclusive use of our own people, Not only so, but in their grotesque interest to relieve the burden of the subject of the foreign government, they have forgotten the precept of American thrift and ignored the most obvious suggestions of American fair play. They were so eager to give Canada everything that they have not had sense enough to ask for anything. They open to her the American market without perceiving that she maintains an unbroken line of commercial hostility extending from Prince Edwards Island to Vancouver. They have sacrificed American wool growing, without even so much as asking one commercial favor either from South America, Australia, or any other wool producing;country. Here is a fashion of statesmanship worthy of Bedlam in its most prosperous period. WHAT ENGLAND THINKS. Lord Salisbury a few months ago, Mouse, M. P.

The young men and women of the United States, looking with gratitude upon the sacrifices of the civil war, will stand as a solid wall of defense before tbe broken and wastec regiments of the Union army. Already the day is at hand when it does a polit* ical party no good to parade a record of economy, which saved thirty millions of dollars, by stealing it from the needy and dependent wen and women whose unselfish loyalty protected tbe life of the republic.

He declared that England bad nothing to expect, not because she had nothing to give, but because she had already given away everything for nothing., His lordship would have been able to assuage some of the discouragement, if he had foreseen that within a few months the American people would choose leaders who would reduce the art'of stupidity to a system, and cheerfully throw away the advantage secured to American commerce in the marketplaces of Spanish America by the genius of James G, Blaine. "The McKinley bill," declared a Parisian newsr paper whose editorial utterance'"was regarded to be bf such importance that it was telegraphed to the New York Herald, "is an act of prodigious ingratitude toward Europe." I cannot forbear to express the hope that the apology made by Prof, Wilson to the London Chamber of Commerce, for that passing act of. ingratitude, will be accepted by our competitors abroad with as few suspicions as possible of the sanity of the people of the United States. Mr; Dolliver's speech was followed by a short address by Governor McKinley, who had gone there from the tabernacle. His entrance Vas greeted with loud and long continued cheering. The audience fairly went wild with enthusiasm and it was a long time before he had an opportunity after arising to. begin his speech. He found his voice in an unfortunate condition and. was unable to speak at length. The ride following the long address at the tabernacle had a discouraging effect upon bis throat and it was with the extremest difficulty tbat he could talk sufficiently loud to make the big audience hear, Every point he made was loudly cheered for the people were very appreciative.
