GAMPAmif Out system of govetninent is the best because it'secures a rulership pf the nation according to the prepoia- derating conviction and desite of the whole voi ing people. That is the best thing that cati be said for it. But in* cidetttaliy it gives the citizen att ittteU lectual developetnent and a widening of information regarding public men and practical political affairs which cornea close to being as good a thing as republican government can claim as its work. Men occasionally get stirred up over the frequency of our elections, and probably it is a fact that business has to pass through some sort of crisis about every election day, but the incidental education and elevation of the people are a tangible counterbalance of the expense. The fact is that we do not, ordinarily, take up a question and consider it seriously until we take it up to settle. We have national questions put to us for answer once in two years, when the lower house of congress is named at the voting places of the land, and that is not too often for the citizen to make a special study of the condition and needs of his country. The stump orators and the newspapers bring out the issues more or less clearly. They are the advocates and the voters are the jury. Party spirit, personal self-interest and the prejudices of ancestry and education have much to do, as they have in all the settlements of life's questions, but the renewal of our political life which tells for future preponderance is in the campaign and at the polls. The newspaper is the greatest political force in the land, not because it ap- pesils most strongly to the average vottar, for the speaker, if he is capable, does that, but because it is always on hand an d always has a larger audience than any speaker has;. When we have but few speakers, or when they can reach but few, the enterprising newspaper—the newspaper which appreciates the demand and the opportunity of the occasion—reprints, as it has the space to do, the utterances of the great orators and writers of the land. Prom the partisan standpoint no work which a paper can do is more effective than this, nor is any other work of any greater service to the intelligent people of opposing politics, as nobody should go to the polls without giving a hearing to both sides. It is our feeling just now that the republican party never had a greater leadership than it has today, and of course we'have always had men enough of presidential calibre, but the country has seldom ever seen a greater or better matched big four than Harrison, McKinley, Allison and Reed. The editor must be insensible to the wealth of available material if. he is not tempted to reproduce the utterances of such men, We believe heartily in the political campaign. It is the great periodical revival of patriotism, and when we come nearer to the millen- ium, and partisan misrepresentation, personal abuse and corruption are nearer the disappearing point, it will be a better thing yet. RIGHT BASIS OF PROTECTION. In a recent speech Thos. B, Heed expresses his opinion regarding the basis and justification of the system of protection. What Mr. Reed says is always interesting, always sensible, and always appeals to the unbiased mind, open to conviction, with convincing effect. There are many ways of putting the reasonableness and the necessity of protection, Heie is what Mr, Reed says: Protection has got to be put upon the right basis and that basis is the wages of men who labor with brains or muscle, for I make no distinction, What we need is good wages. If I did not believe that protection instead of being a tax for the benefit of the one as against the many was the best means of distributing the God-given results of the resources of this country I would never be for it. If I did not believe thot it was a method of giving the American markets to the American people so that this country would do all its own work, I would not demand its retention, (Applause,) But X believe that wages are the mainspring of our industrial system. And why? Do T advocate wages because I am the especial friend o£ the working men? Whenever anybody from a po^ Jitieal platform states that he Is the especial friend of anybody, that anybody Jmd better look out and watch him. J advocate that foundation for the good, honest and selfish reason that I believe it will bring prosperity and when prosperity comes I have got a chance to get my sljare, Why is it t&at I say wages are t.fce foundation of on* prosperity? It is because the great incentive tQ industrial life is the market, the purchasing power, the ability to buy, that is what the mill wheels turn, tUat is what sets the machinery humming, that is what pro 4«ce8 prosperity in a would fiftve to seat6h long and fat to find a better presetved man than Iowa's distinguished statesman, and yet he has done more hard legislative work than almost any man in the senate during the last decade. What an ideal President he would make. His mind is a veritable magazine of information. He has mastered all the intricate problems of state craft, and is today as Well equipped a statesffian as the nation boasts. He is the embodiment of Stalwart Republicanism. He commands the confidence of the business world. His developement has been symmetrical. He represents no one article of the republican faith, but all articles. No one has a mortgage on the next Republican convention and it wotild be the most natural thing hi the world if that body should in its determination to find a candidate representative ofgenuine conservative republicanism, single out Iowa's senior senator and place in his hands the banner of the party, and bid him lead in the great conflict of 1896, One of the reasons why Senator Allison has preserved his health is that he refuses to enter general society. He avoids late gala dinners. He leads very simple life— and while a man in his position would have an invitation to dine out every secular day, he accepts only here and there one, which, comes from colleagues like Aldrich and a few others. When hard official work and an enormous correspondence is supplemented with social diversions —the stomach and the nerves giye out before sixty years are reached. There is no grander or more lovely character in public life today than Senator Allison. It is no wonderment when editors give retn to inspiration and dastt off gems of poesy for their columns without any Increase in the price of subscription, as does Bro. Nicol, of the Milford Mail,T but it does seem to us that J. Fred Meyers ought to get more than his regular two dollars a year for his Denison Review, which nearly every week contains an able sermon from his pen from a gospel text. Mr. Meyers' sermons are more profound and helpful than are those usually heard from the pulpit, and they reach a larger congregation than listens to any ordained preacher in the state, and now the question comes up whether it would be the thing for other editors, who have with profit imitated his example in other things, to follow Bro. Meyers in the matter of an occasional sermon. Labor Commissioner O'Bleness recently issued a circular addressed to the'laboring men of Iowa, asking them, what, in their opinion, will help their class the most. He has received over 1,800 replies, and nearly every one of them declares in favor of the restriction of foreign immigration and the admission through the gates of Castle Garden of only these who have character and means of support. Undoubtedly the wage earners of the country are deeply impressed with the fact that there is a decided glut of labor. There is a suggestion that James Clarkson may be Utah's first United States senator. Mr. Glarkson has been a resident of Salt Lake City 1 for several years and is identified with its busines in}- terests. His election would be pleasing to the republicans of Iowa. The Russian Czar, Alexander III, died Thursday last. He was but 49 years of age, and had been on the throne thirteen years. Bro. Platt, of the Winnebago Summit, was thinking of the populist candidate iii the Dubuque district, probably, when he said: "Hundreds of democrats in the tenth district will vote for Dolliver in preference to the renegade populist preacher." Joe Baker is seldom or never taken for a preacher. ' There is as much truth as poetry in this, from the Milford Mail; The right c f franchise is a sacred trust; Were men but upright, honest, true and just. The gentler, sex would also have that right; For mentally they are men's equal quite. And morally they beat us out of sight. The Chicago Record has had its eye on our senior Senator, for it says: "William B, Allison does not travel with a brass band, But clad in gum shoes he stealth-, ly appi'Daches the white house just the same." p AHtew mm w grew years a, ft a Imm and re- Judge Quarton is making a favorable mpression. The Emmet County Repubr ican says; ' "Judge Quarton opened up couj$ here Monday evening. The judge is 'rather youthful Jn appearance but Tie takes up ;he work as though to the manor born. [-Io is clear-headed, plain spoken and has Siad twelve years of sharp practice in one of the best legal towns (Algona) in the state. Altogether Judge Quarton is a very creditable successor to Judge Carr, There was a wedding in Emmet county 'ecently at which evidences of genuine good will appeared in the list of presents, Which included, besides the never to be omitted pickle dishes, peppers and salts, albums and vases, two pigs and five pres* ents of jnpney. The world is growing better. That popular humorist, Al Adains, says: f *J)r. Brings, tbe distinguished Presbyterian hectic, will find his opinion that 80,000 of tJje 90,000 njjnistej<s to tye United States ea.o oasily bo dispensed with, endowed from, every direction."

Chairman Blythe closed up the republican state headquarters at Des Moines Saturday night with the announcement; "It is all done but the shouting." Chauncey Depew was making a speech in Bowery place, last week, and was telling the laboring men: "I commenced life with nothing but these hands and this head," when somebody shouted: ''Say, Chaunce, old boy, that head o 1 your'n is a peach." The great republican .orator joined in the howls and yells of laughter. One of the things asking clamorously for explanation just as soon as the election excitment is over is the fact that Chicago registered several thousands of alleged voters more than New York City did. Kind friends, do not lay awake, nights worrying about the spread of asceticism in this land and time. If you must worry, let it be because of the widened acceptance and practice of Epicurism. Sioux City Journal: Prof. Goo. D. Herron, of Iowa college, has been to Nebraska and delivered his lecture on Christian sociology. GOT. Crounse was not present, and as the lecture was delivered in Omaha the. professor was enabled to beat a hasty retreat across the long bridge in comparative safety.

The result of the election yesterday settled that with emphasis, Morton in New York received 160,000 to 200,000 majority for governor, and the anti-Tammany ticket headed by Strong for mayor, was elected in New York city by from 30,000 to 50,000 majority, The republicans made great jains in every state. They confldent- y claim congress, Wilson in West Virginia is probably defeated, and Owen in the Ashland district of Ken- ucky, the Breckinridge men voting with the republicans, Chicago went republican, North Dakota went republican, Minnesota elects Nelson of course. We got back Wisconsin and Illinois, and most everything that we didn't have. It was a great republican THE STATE OF IOWA. The probability is that Iowa gave 75,000 majority for the republican ticket, Ten ^republican congressmen were elected, and probably the whole eleven, THE LATEST.

The democratic vote dropped from<198 ia 1892 to 121 yesterday, and the populist vote ran up from 3 to 24. The prohibition vote was 6 against 4 two years ago. The republican plurality in Algona was 199 for McFarland, for Secretary of State. Two years ago it was 128 for Harrison, a gain of 70 in our majority. Dolliver gets more popular every day in Algona. He ran 8 votes ahead of McFarland, getting 328 to 140 for Baker, and his majority being 188. Judge Quarton received exactly the same vote as the republican state ticket, getting 320 votes to 152 for Cohoon. Mr. Randall led the ticket by big odds, receiving 370 votes to 106 for Johnston. His majority in the city was 264. Grose followed closely on his heels, however, receiving 847 to 115 for Johnston. J. B. Hofius, for auditor, forged ahead of, this ticket at a great rate. He received 200 to 271 for Mr. Calkins, cutting the lattpr's majority down to 71. Raymond for Attorney received 328 to 141 for Thompson. On Supervisors, Hollenbeck received 315, Barton, 341, Rpupe 127 and Jacobson 163.
