THE BATTLE HAS SEEN There is, as usual, a great deal of grave speculation regarding the significance of the elections. Much ot the discussion illustrates the disposition to go far and dig deep for reasons which are near by and on the surface. It is entirely reasonable to believe that the voters of the Union intended to do exactly what they did do. We must assume that. Any other assumption is an indictment of popular government. And (here has been a general likeness in results every where. There have been ilocontradictionsto reconcile. The tendency has been everywhere in the same, if not everywhere alike overwhelming. The effect has been the rejection and re.demerit of democracy and the reinstatement of republicanism in all de- pal tments which the election could control, incidentally, populism has Ueen given its quietus in every locality where it had previously attained power and influence. Now it is true that the democratic party lias not been able to delint) itself clearly in regard toils tariff policy or indicate definitely what it wanted to do. The people of the country thought, two years ago. that a democratic victory meant' a definite policy, but the experience of two years of war- Tiug among the discordant elements of the democratic party has unsettled all previous assumptions and beliefs. ^Tbe one settled thing that the country knew was that, having been placed in power on the pledge to uproot republican protection, the party had taken a step in the direction af free trade. The party, as represented by its press and on the stump, defended that step and promised other steps in the same direction, with free trade as the end always in view. As certainly as this is true, the voters at large of the United States bave in the past two years come to a decision of the tariff question never so clearly reached or so tenaciously held before. The conviction that a protective tariff is absolutely indispensable to prosperity is more firmly held to-day than ever before in our history. That, 'conviction is not confined to the east, nor to the west, nor to the north: it has invaded the south, hitherto solid on every party question. It is not the conviction of one class but of all classes and occupations. It has, in short, become the American idea. It cannot be restrained or set aside by party trammels. CHEAP WINTER BEADING. The REPUBLICAN has never made more liberal figures in the way of clubbing rates with other desirable papers than it makes this fall. The rates it advertises now are with the best re- .publican papers in the country—papers one or more of which every republican reader likes to have. We can jjet some papers for almost nothing, and they are worth about what they cost. B».t the papers above named are as good as the gold. If any two or more of the above named outside papers are desired with the REPUBLICAN we can give them at these rates: The HBPUBLICAN and any two, $2,20; the BEPUBLICAN and the whole three, 82.60. These rates are strictly cash in advance. The political situation has for a year or more been getting decidedly interesting. The interest has not begun to wane. It will not until the next presidential election, two years hence, but will naturally increase. A great deal of history is being made these days, in which so much of industrial machinery is idle, and so many brawny arms are resting, The careful observer of affairs can get a finished education in political economy at small money ex-. penee. The Iowa farmer is a sharp observer, and a clear thinker, and can get all the practical educational bene* fit out of the situation in which, at the present time, other sections of the country are supplying the principal victims. In a short time the REPUBLICAN will print a list of publications, of a literary, family and miscellaneous character, with the prices at which we can supply them to our subscribers, We snail give the best rates we can, and they will be satisfactory rates. Declarations from Tbos, J3. Reed 1» a recent speech indicate that tho republicans will refrain from tariff agitation in tUp next Congress, with a view to gjving the business of the countrg a chance to re- puperate. Inasmuch as a republican congress cgqld consistently do nothing in this jjue jyUSgh a democratic president would act veto, any unnecessary agitation wouTd ft«y rational object, aside from effect, and for that reason fcjfiereia.rypfiii5.tate MoFayland b.0,8 up- , .pointed Papt. frank g. lenders, of Web'. ' «$0r4plt.yj as ftuperjnteodont of the census retprjis publican vote shows an increase, of over that of 1892 and the democratic vote is 45.577 less. The total tote is 422,314, against 442,814 two years ago. showing a falling off of 20.500 votos. The facts arc oxaclly as the REPUBLICAN anticipated last week in its editorial trr-atmcnt of the question of changing the basis of representation in onr conventions, the big majority we have won Is due to a falling off of the democratic vote more than to «,ny great increase. In republican votes. The iinmbor of delegates Ih onr state convention nest year will be Increased less than Fifty hy reason of the increase. The tender of the friendly offices of the Qnited States to Japan in fixing up matters with China has been declined. Cleveland Grosham did not impress the world favorably as to their cleverness, in diplomacy by the way they handled the Haw- alan business, and Japan probably remembered the fate of Queen of Lll. The Marshalltown Times Republican, speaking of Frank D. Jackson's rel ireinent from the governorship for financial rcas- sons, declares for greater liberality in providing for the expenses of the executive position, in line with the views of this paper expressed last week, and says: It is humiliating to an lowau to acknowledge that the governor has financial reasons for not remaining thcstate's chief of political campaigns are added the expenses of maintaininga creditable gubernatorial residence at the capital, a very good sized bank account is required If the executive of Iowa does the usual credit to his own commonwealth. Iowa—the best and richest state In the union—usually not niggardly, should see to it in the future that her chief executive has not only a house in which to live, but a salary to maintain It. In this respect Iowa is behind all other states of the union. The ordinary county officer is better off than the governor. Ill-judged economy is expensive. Whether republican, democrat or pop, let the next governor of Iowa be paid according to the responsibilities and requirements of his high office. . ': The women eamc to the support of good government In the recent election, wher-. ever there was any moral issue at stake. They worked enthusiastically with the committee of seventy in the overthrow of Tammany, and In Chicago they gave effective aid to the Civic Federation. . In Colorado they assisted the republicans in the campaign against "bloody-bridles" Waite, and three of their number were elected to seats in the legislature of that state. Two men in Alabama claim to have been elected governor, Gates, a democrat, and Kolb, a populist. The canvassing board declared Gates elected, but Kolb claims they counted him out, as they did two years previously, and he proposes to bo inaugurated December 1st. There is likely to be serious trouble. It is a very singular fact that Medill, of the Chicago Tribune, should bo so lacking in sagacity as to allow his name to be used as a, candidate for United States Senator against such a man as Senator Cullom. Mr. Medill will not cut any figure. He is too much inclined towards free trade. "An Arabian Day and Night," in. the Christmas Harper's, is an interesting record of an excursion into French Africa, written by Poultney Bigelow, and illustrated by Frederic Remington. Those travelers succ^ded in seeing the Arab at home in his tent and, again, in town, and and their vivid impressions are amusingly and graphically set forth. The Messenger says of a brother of our congressman, who seems to bo a chip off the same block; Victor B. Dollivor arrived home on Monday from the east, where he has been lending his voice to the cause of republicanism in Maine and New York. Fort Dodge people are proud of the success Mr. Dolliver is making in this*lino, for he ranks way up as a campaign orator among the smart politicians of the east and everywhere he goes he captures all who hear him. The Des Moines Register thinks that "Dr. Brigg's now hook, and the haste with which it appears, shows that he is minded to tnrn at least a part of his fame, or is it merely notoriety, into ready cash, which is the salve of so man j wounds both spiritual and temporal." Some of the Iowa papers want to begin the campaign for the governorship nomination right away. Such haste is likely to injure the chances of tue candidates boomed, especially if they are holding fat offices already. One of the interesting subjects which is being discussed by the newspapers since the ejection is the size of Grovpr's pile. It s variously estimated at from four to six millions, And yet lie is not a happy man, ALPEN At Walker Bros,' It is the best. AN AWKWARD MISTAKE. Sheriff Samson went down to Gutlj- rie county last week to arrest Ghas. Pygert, a kedyard bay man, whose partner flled an information against him for larceny. Mr-Dygert had just received payment for a coupje. of cars of hay, and getting a telegram inform* ing him of the sickness of; his \yife at Panora, he went down there, intending to return in a few days. The partner becoming nervous, informed against him and the sheriff brought Pygqrt back Friday night- County Attorney Raymond went «p Saturday to try the case, but when he learned the facts be promptly dismissed the case and had, the costs taxed up to the coca- plaining witness. Jt was an instance of too previous action. Even hac} Pyv gert failed to account for the hay WOR* ey, he would only fee liable to. a civil action, but it is quite evident tnat he had no intention to wrong bis partner- HARD BLOW FOR BLUE SKV, Joe Cross is Convicted of Obiainihg Property by False Prfetftnces, Wiicfi i3 & l?enitenitery M. Babler, of Rent&ick, was the Victim. The Judge will Fix the Letigth of Grose's Term this Week.-^-An Appeal May be Taken. A LOSING GdNFiJbfiMGfi SAMt. The trial of tMl. Cfose for obtain^ ing property uttder false pretences was had at ilumboldt last Thursday,before Judge Lot Thomas, occupying ttie eii- tire day, the case going to the jury at a little before five o'clock* Alter con* siderable deliberation the jury returned a verdict of guilty * A motion to set aside the verdict and to grant & new trial was entered by the defendant's counsel, Dan Coyle^ but was denied, whereupon notice of appeal to the su* preme court was filed, the grounds be* ing the insufficiency of the evidence of guilt. It is understood that sentence will be pronqunced this week. The limit of discretion of the Judge is as to the length of the term of imprisonment in the penitentiary. The prosecution was conducted by County Attorney Smith, of Ilumboldt. The jury selected was made up of young farmers to a man. No other occupation was represented, and probably not one of the jurors was upwards of forty years of afeo. It was a jury of bright looking and honest appearing men. THE EVIDENCE SUBMITTED; The principal witnesses for the state were M. Babler and wife, residing near Renwick. Babler is a native of Switzerland and is unable to read or write the English language, though bespeaks it readily and understands all but the big words. When in his examination he came to words he did not understand he promptly asked for explana tion. He is a young man, honest and unsophisticated if appearances' are riot deceiving. Mrs. Babler is but a girl. She is brighter, speaks better English, and reads and writes it. The uncoutradicted facts brought out were that Grose and Harry Dodge were in Ren wick on Saturday, September first, They there saw Mr. Babler,, and Grose looked over his team with a view to purchasing them. Babler said lie did not want to sell them, but said he had a pair of colts two and three years old, that he would sell, and it was arranged that Gibae Should visit the Babler farni tliat evening and looked at them; Grose 'and Dodge arrived at the farm about dusk and staid over night,' and it was on Sunday morning that the bargain and sale were made. Babler offe red the colts for $180, which was a satisfactory price to. Grose, but Grose said he could not pay any money but had some notes. He first offered him a$170 note, secured by a chattel mortgage, but Babler would not take it. He then offered him a $216'note, signed by Nathan*Hills,, who Grose said was a resident i p.f. Pocahontas county and owned 320 acres of land: The note had on ,ijs back a property statement, alleging the ownership, by the maker of 320 acres of land, without locating it,: arid further alleging the ownership of considerable 'personal property. Bab;ler had his wife .look this over and on her advice declined to take it. Babler then agreed to take Grose's note with HiHs' note for security. It was on this basis that the sale was effected, Babler taking the notes and Grose and Dodge driving away with the colts, which were a fine pair of Normans. THE POINT IN DISPU|TE. It was as ,to representations made by Grose'in regard to ownership of land by himseltand Hills that the evidence was contradictory. Babler and bis wife testified that Grose said he owned a valuable farm near Algona and owned real estate in Eagle Grove. They also testied that Grose told them that Hills owned 320 acres of land in Pooh- pntas county. On the other side, Grose swore that the statements about land were in a conversation Saturday night, about the rise of land in Kossuth county. He claims he said that about fifteen years ago a large tract of land near Irvington was bought for five dollars an acre, and that two years after be was offered twenty dollars an acre for 120 acres of it. When Mrs. Babler asked him if he took the offer he said he did not, He also testified that he told the Bablers that he had bought land near Algona, but denied having represented himself as owning and land anywhere. He denied having said any» thing about owning property in Eagle Grove. He said he talked of Webster City real estate. As to the Hills land, be testified that he told themthatjjills lived in Pocahontas county, and that he owned 320 acres of land. He denied, having stated where the land was Harry Dodge supported Grose in his testimony in regard to the ownership of property. Mrs. Babler was somewhat confused and inconsistent in her testimony on cross examination. Recorders Randall, of Kossuth county, Ballard, of Pocahontas, and Cutler, of Wright, were brought on the stand to testify regarding the records of their several counties. Each and nil testified that there was no record in their possession of any property owned by Grose on the second of of September. The e^awiqation of Nathan Hills, t>he maker of tbe$2i5note,tbe story of whose ample possessions bad SQ powerfully affected the imaginations of the sus* ceptible JJablers, occasioned, a,' great deal of amusement, mils is a m,a.n about thirty years old, of seedy aspect, and with an impediment in Ms speed), He testified feat? he vy^s » resident p£ Pocahontas and owned s,go acres oj lanfl in Wisconsin, W9*tli $25 an He aaid U,e paid $15 dawn »n<J bad equity in't«e land 14,000, ffe sho up the four deeds, wMeh w0 torn $ 4, Skinaer of Algona, tQgethev with an abstract.

To sum up the Whole case, the. issue made and met was as to actual misrepresentations and false pretences made by Cr6se. There cotild be no doubt but Babler and wife came to be* lieve that Cfose Was A fflati of cohsidU erable possessions ifi real' estate, blit whether he told thetft hti had "bought" land, of "owtied" land wa8 'disputed. They were deceived in either ease, and theionly question" was as to whether Cfose had deceived without lying Babler and wife also hetit-.Veilt withont dolibt that the ttillsiland wasinPocah* ontas. and not in some Wisconsin lake. tJad they known that Hills had paid $16, Instead of sfeis an acre* and that he had a horse and a hog left, any state.- Went as to his having a $4.000 equity, in the land would lw« fallen upon their ears without reassuring effect Tt was noteworthy that Ofose htul'nyula a favorable 'Impression upon thpBablrrs. and that they "set store by" his promise to pay. ' • ME GOT HIS HOUSES BACK. It came out in Babler's testimony, without the county attorney intending it, that Grose had yone to Babler after the matter began to look serious, and settled, delivering back the coita, aud taking Babler'a receipt. Tue arguments of counsel on both sides Were able. County Attorney Smith made a telling plea and Air. Coyle'inadu the most of the inconsistencies and contradictions of the evidence for the state, Mr. Coyle was appointed by the Judge, Grose stating that lie was not . able to employ an attorney .A WARNING TO BLUE SKY. " The result of this trial is a very hard blow to the Algona Blue Sky gang. A conviction was hardly expected in this case. 'It was-thought that Grose 'had played his confidence game so shrewdly that he could not be caught. ' Grose has the'reputation of being the smoothest dealer in Blue Sky iii the entire gang. The other fellows probably realize now what dangers they are exposed to, and the conviction is a knell of doom to others against whom indictments are standing. The : way of the transgressor begins to look hard. The question comes up, too, who has got the money that Grose has made out of Bine Sky'? Is there not someway that these men can be reached by .the arm of the law? Grose is not supposed to be worth a cent. He has a wife and children on vyhom the penalty of his crimes will fall with even greater force than upon himself. To the distresses .of poverty in their cases will be added the dis-- grace of a convict husband and father. It is sympathy for those who are innocent, buf who must suffer with if .not more than the guilty; .which has led some parties to petition Judge Thomas to suspend sentence dui'ingv good be,-;. ; havior.- - •••.•,-;•• :> • -.-<' \ '' ; Grose is one of the , oldc teachers , of the county, and one of th.e r b'tst. qualified, 'lii'an evil momeHt;'l') r e u c6"nseiated to become the,tool of ah 'unscrupulous band, intent upon defrauding the in no- cent and 'growing rich: by.; despoiling honest men of their'hard, teiirned possessions.

It proved such i a success that he determined to extend, his operations, He expects to be open for business by December first. In connection'with his creamery he has put in an Appleton feed mill, with a capacity for grinding twenty-five bushels of feed per hour, which-.w ; ill be an acquisition to the neighborhood so- .cond to the creamery only. Such enterprises as these add value to every acre of the tributary land and make every land owner and resident a debtor, -Mr, Lane js one of the thrifty and progressive men of.

The case for the plaintiff was conducted by Attorney J. W. SuU livan of this place, and T. S\ Wade of Iowa City, while the defence Was rep- t seated by Geo. E. Clarke, of AlgoHa, J. N, Baldwin of Council Bluffs, and M, D O'Connell of Fort Dodge. The question at issue was whether the engineer did his duty in blowing the whistle and ringing the bell at the crossing. It is reported that the jury stood six to six on the question of allowing dam" ages. The reports agree that six were against any allowance whatever. There is one report that the other six were for allowing the value of the team. Another report says they were for allowing full damages. Mr. Thompson says he is stronger in the faith as to the justness of his claim than • ever before. He will push his case and will be ready for a retrial next spring. He speaks in high terms of the fairness and ability of Judge Shiras. DOINGS OF THE FATHERS IB Aifois« isst mt t&,& 4 ss-r-- 1ft MftfsltftliibwT}. ffip$<••?
