BY MILTON StARft. SUBSCRIPTION RATES; dne Vear, in Advance ,$t.3o Six Months • • • -75 three Months. 4° THE TOPIC OF THE TIMES. The democratic state committee of Illinois has caused a great commotion in that party throughout the nation by coming out for free silver coinage at the ratio of 107 to 1 and calling the state convention to meet June 4 to proclaim the new party creed. The committee declares that the currency will be the only issue of the presidential election. Coming on the heels of the terrible democratic defeat in Chicago, this action is taken as indicating that the democratic leaders have lost their heads, and the conservative element are filled with consternation. The silver advocates, on the other hand, naturally see in it a desperate attempt to resuscitate a dead party by sending a live current through it. The poor old democratic party has been torn up for a long time on every national question, but with the adjournment of congress the party was relieved of undivided responsibility in our internal affairs which goes n'ith the control of all the departments, and was in a position to go off by itself and think. And now comes this great strategy in Illinois! solemniy propose to the American people that the commercial value of all the silver in the world can be more than doubled instantly by statute, and will propose further to stake the financial future of the country upon the success of the venture. IN FAVOR OF COL, ORMSBY, the Organise for the Campaign * * # The opinion of the Illinois committee is entertained by a good many people at this time, but it would be much the most remarkable political phenomenon of the day if the tariff should be eliminated as a chief issue from our next presidential campaign. Here we are living under a law, enacted by a democratic congress, which the democratic president refused to sign, declaring^ to be an infamous measure. It is a law which confessedly contains upwards of 400 mistakes, to say nothing of the income tax feature, now in its main provisions wiped from the statute books by an adverse decision of the supreme court. It is a law which cannot be reconciled with any principle of taxation which anybody ever advocated. It had hardly found its place upon the statute books before the democratic house of representatives, by a full party vote, passed amendments which, if they had been ratified by the senate, would have made it a new law. If it had no other defects it would have to be condemned for the reason, that it comes very far short of raising sufficient revenue to meet government expenses. The situation is such, and the law is such, that even in the seemingly impossible. ev.e,nt of the ,election of a democratic congress next year,the repeal of the existing law will come up as the first business, to stave off national bankruptcy. This knowledge will inevitably bring up the whole question, and give it its old position, for a republican congress will not in the interim commit the folly of attempting the enactment of a tariff bill that a free trade president will sign. A COMING QUESTION. One question likely to come up in the next legislature is whether the laws shall be so amended as to permit the manufactme of intoxicating liquors within our borders. It is well enough for the thoughtful people of Iowa to keep this in mind and be ready to act as their convictions may dictate. The promoters of the movement will no doubt be very glib with their arguments for the change, but in reality the one great reason back of it is a desire to still further extend the influence and power of the saloon element. With reference to these alleged arguments the Des Moiues Capital says: The commercial feature of the matter is of no consequence and ought not to be considered for a minute. It has been frequently shown in the Capital that any one county in Iowa can grow all the corn that would be used in Iowa for making whisky or alcohol and about enough for the United States. It has also been shown that the amount of grain used in the manufacture of beer is so small as to have a very trifling effect upon the price of the farmers' crops. It can also be shown that as employers of labor, breweries and distilleries are of little or no consequence. One good creamery would employ more men than a large brewery. It is time this matter was being discussed publicly and candidly on its merits. The strongest argument used in favor of the manufacture of liquors is the fact that the state has in some measure permitted liquors to be sold. However, that is not a legitimate argument. We very much fear that if the manufacture of liquors is permitted in the state it will be but a year or two until the stringent laws that now surround the liquor business in the state will be wiped out one by one. Resolution Adopted in FaVbf 6f this Candidacy of Col. E. S. Ofrnsby for ernof.—Col. Otmsby Makes a Short Address. The long expected decisiomof the United States supreme court on the constitutionality of the income tax law was filed on Monday. Its details are set forth in our news columns, but the effect is to strike from the law as invalid the taxation of incomes derived from rents and from state, county and municipal bonds. These were the very incomes, those of wealthy non- producers, which the populists so much desired to reach. The producers are the only ones who were aimed at who get the full force of the tax. It is anticipated, however, that the whole law will be declared invalid if its several provisions are attacked by new suits. Geo. B. Swift was elected mayor of Chicago by about 41,000 majority. It was the largest majority ever given to any candidate for any office in. Chicago. : ; Of ^he 08 "alderm'an all but I? are republicans". • Balfour, the English conservative leader, made a speech at the annual meeting of the bimetallic league of Great Britain, in which he argued strongly for tiro reinstatement of silver. He said that the belief in bimetallism was growing, not only in London and other parts of Great Britian, but throughout the civilized world. However, if the free silver advocate of the United States were to talk with Balfour In reference to means of reinstating silver, be likely would write the latter down a "gold-bug." The tariff question is with us always, not because politicians want to keep it ever at the front, nor solely because manufacturers and producers want to be freed from ruinous foreign competition, but because we mustraise a half a billion of dollars every year by some means, and a tariff upon imports, by general consent, affords the only practicable means of raising at least the greater part of it. It so happens, too, that even with revenue as the sole object of tariff legislation, it becomes necessary, with our swiftly changing conditions, to readjust our laws every few years, without regard to any original defect they may have embodied, and once the question is opened up, nobody can prevent its settlement on the old line of controversy between protection and free trade. The present wonderful interest, not to say excitement, may be kept up till next year, or it may Jose interest and subside as speedily as it arose, giving its place to another of the series of great crazes which have in turn possessed the public mind since the infliction of a democratic administration put a premium on panaceas for ruin. However that may be, the man who dreams that the thinking people of this country are going to let another presidential campaign pass without getting a hard wUa,ck it, free trade will wake up to the realities of life before the campaign Htpalf, over. * # * It would afford a new illustration of democratic constancy and consistency jf Umt party, which fought and won jts last presidential campaign on the theory that the republican tariff had made prices ruinously high, should turn squarely about and fight its next great battle in behalf of high prices, now alleged to have become ruinously Ipw, apd for which sad condition » pause acting back twenty-two years was suddenly become responsible, and tariff gliuses suddenly inoperative- With the democratic party it te always ft guistfon what fo.ol tWoR' it will "' 49»e*t» but W0 way that U wili ttftfi Ex-Congressman Wilson, of West Virginia, has taken up his duties as Postmaster General. Edward Atkinson, the eminent statistician, has an article In the April Forum In which ho combats the theory that the fall of prices of late years has been due to the demonetization of silver. He takes up the different articles and shows what influences have tended to diminish prices. 1 The article is worthy of the attention of all who are in search of facts bearing on this question. U, S. Consul Tingle, at Brunswick, Germany, advisrs the farmers of the United States to slaughter their cheap horses and ship them to Geimany. Ho says that horse meat is very generally used in many of the smaller towns and cities and commands good prices, Dairy Commissioner Boardman has addressed a letter to the retailers of cheese hi this state warning them against dealing In "filled" cheese, which holds the same relation to genuine whole milk cheese that oleomargarine does to genuine butter. The law holds the retailer responsible for the genuineness of the article sold. If England is to bo allowed to set at naught our long honored Monroe doctrine with impunity we shall have to retire the American eagle and put a tamer bird to the front. IOWA EMMETSUURG, April 8.—Special to The Register: Pursuant to call, the republicans of Emnietsburg met in the court house Saturday evening for the purpose of organizing a Uepublican League club for the coming campaign. On motion the following gentlemen were unanimously elected: Capt. E. J. Hartshorn, president; Dr. J. C. Davies, vice president; "W. J. Brown, treastiser; L. II. Mayne, secretary. Executive committee, Capt. E. B. Soper, M. L. Brown, C. W. Ilodgkinson, county auditor, E. S. Ormsby, L. A. Martin, county recorder, C. M. Henry, A. H. Keller, A. W. Utter and W. T. Keiger. When the organization was completed the following resolution was pussed: Resolved, That the club recognizes in our fellow townsman, Col. E. S. Ormsby, an estimable gentleman, a worthy citizen, and a loyal patriot, one who not only commands the respect of the community, but of a large circle of acquaintances throughout the entire state. We also recognise in him that deliberate judgment, and executive ability so essential in the chief executive officer of the great state of Iowa, and believing should he be nominated and elected he would give the state an administration that would not only reflect credit on himself, but also on the people of Palo Alto county and this great commonwealth; therefore, be it Resolved, That we as a club and as individual members thereof pledge ourselves to use all honorable means to secure his nomination. This resolution was adopted unanimously and with enthusiasm rarely equaled. Col. E. S. Ormsby and L. H. Mayne were elected delegates to the State Republican league, to be held at Des Moines, April 20. Just as the delegates were Delected Col. E. S. Ormsby came forward into the hall and was given a regular ovation. In response he thanked the assembly for the cordial greeting, and congratulated it on the successful organization of a Republican League club and for their hearty endorsement of himself. He said that northwest Iowa, the stronghold of Republican majorities, was entitled to the governorship, and that the people of the state hardly realized that the onward march 'of progress had reached bey l 6|nd"Fort Dodge, where Governor Carpenter was elected in 1870; that the candidates for governorship were numerous and all good men and he felt sure from the many letters received and newspaper comments that he was receiving his share of favorable consideration; that no one could predict the outcome of the convention, but he was satisfied the wisdom of the republican host in convention would do the right thing so that the scattered remnant of the demr ocratic party would be properly disposed of at the fall election. Never in the history of this American nation have we been brought to such shame and disgrace by the acts of the president and his cabinet as at the present time. I see before me a picture of Mr. Gresham on his knees with a bowed head, holding his hat in his hand; before him the representative of Spain receiving his apology. On one side stands Grover holding the globe in his extended hands and John Bull before him asking if he had any objections to putting a fence, around it, On the other side in humiliation and sadness sits Uncle Sam with bowed head and beside him the eagle in like posture. The condemnation of the present administration at the last fall elections has been doubly emphasized in the elections just held in Rhode Island, Michigan, Chicago, Denver and elsewhere. There are more democratic republicans now than there may be at the next election, and we must not be too sanguine that there is nothing for us to do, We must continue the campaign of education until the people see that protection for American indus* tries and that which brings the greatest good to .the greatest uumber of people. this year. Tfie Siotix City Journal speaks,as follows of the Detroit ei|)6fi* merit: "Last season ah experiment Was tried in the city of Detroit; thftfe attract ed general attention. Uftdfer the direction of the mayor the .dwfiefs of large amounts of unoccupied land within the city limits were induced to gfve for the benefit of the poor people the use of their land. By private subscription a sum was raised for the purchase of Seed potatoes and implements and the tracts and materials were apportioned among the needy people. They planted the potatoes and raised crops Which Went a long Way toWnfd relieving the distress in the city during the year." t RATED TOO LOW. So the fibaird of Equalization bedided in Regard to These Lots. The city council as a board of equalization Were in session several days last week and made a painstaking examination of the work done by Assessor Lamson, the most of which they approved. The lots below described, however, they thought Were rated too low, and raised the assessments as indicated: Owner Lot.
