The State Register lias no candidate foi governor, but it greatly admires the literary style, good English and good taste o convention resolutions indorsing Genera t)ral\i\ The present newspaper estimate of th;e new congress gives the unconditional free coinage proposition four adherents out ol the 224 republican members. If this is anywhere near correct there is no chaiict for a split in the republican party. ^Thi chance will grow less as time passes anc light shines more mid more brightly upon the money problem. The West Uond Advance is one of tin best looking and best conducted new papers that ever appeared in this excellent newspaper Held of Northwestern Iowa. It is a credit to its proprietors who arc YV. H. Parkin. (1. II. Bookman and 1). H.Wil- liam-on. If yon would have a clear-cut opinion of /ola, here is one from the State Register: /ola has become a mere mountebank in literature. He travels about to gather lilth and presents it in novels which have been duly advertised by his peculiar methods. It Is a, matter of gratification that he has been kept out of the French Academy. Defeat is slowly overtaking him as he gets farther and farther away from legitimate literature. The* Des Moines Capital estimates that the population of Iowa, according to the census of 1805, will bo about two millions, or a gain of one hundred thousand over 1890. \Vf ar« now well Into the actual contest for the governorship, numerous county conventions having already been held, and nearly every day being a convention day in some county. The several candidates are eagerly scanning the reports and comparing ascertained results with ante-convention estimates. CJen. Drake appears to lead in ntimber of votes, so far, and to give evidf-.ncu >f more than local strength. Ex-Senator Harlan has secured the entire delegation from Linn county,thirty strong, which gives his boom a substantial appearance. Other candidates are getting encouragement, and there is no doubt that a merry wur is on. Tlio Iowa populists held a larger convention at Dos Molties last week than usual. They declared for free silver and the other populist doctrines and nominated a full state ticket. This was a bitter pill for Weaver, who wanted fusion with the democrats. The populists will keep to the middle of the road and will decline to .._ ..... _____ ...J\av-o-~thcii'- vntf ue»d by trading stock. *- for Th>; negroes are likely to get their rights an SouiWCarollriu. Tilman and his followers gained power by the aid of the poor white population, and now .Wade Hampton, who finds himself out of office, proposes to regain it by an alliance with the colored voters. Hampton, who twenty years ago led the movement which accomplished negro disfranchisement, now says: "I have no fear of negro domination—a. cry used only to arouse race prejudices and to out the coming convention under control of the ring which now dominates our state. The negroes have acted of late with rare moderation ancMiberality and if wo meet them in the same spirit they have shown they will aid us in selecting good representatives for the convention." There is more promise for equal rights and fair treatment for the negro in the drawing of a line between factions among the whites than in the drawing of the color line. The latter has been tried and has miserably failed. Here is a little poetical gem which speaks finely a sentiment too seldom expressed. Some of our young literateurs will perhaps be able to at once name the author: "The wife Avlio girds her husband's sword 'Mid little oiios who weep and wonder. And bi'iivoly spunks the cheering word Wliut. though her heart be rent asunder Doomed nightly In her dreams to hoar Tho bolts of death around him rattle, Hatli shod us sut'i'ed drops as o'er Wove poured upon the field of battle." When the time came for Mr. Debs to go to jail, last week, the sheriff waited long and anxiously for his appearance at- the time appointed, but In vain, and his incarceration had to be postponed a day. He finally turned up and the suspicion that he had a jag on was confirmed. Tho single gold standard men of the oust do not like the Ohio currency, plat- ...fonn,: but that is not a serious objection tpjt, ..The ylank ivtis jiot writtfji to suit .#Ckid:inp.uometolists one the onliand or sliver uionometalists on tho other. Jloro it is: '•\Ve i'avor bimetallism, and demand the, use of both gold and silver as standard money, cither in accordance with a ratio to be lixed by an intornutional agreement if that can bo obtained, or under such restrictions and such provisions to bo determined by legislation us will secure tho , maintenance of the parity of values of the two metals; that the purchasing and debt paying power of tho dollar, whether of silver, gold, or paper, shall bo at all timos equal." It i< a good enough plank. * • Under the recent supremo court decision, which places upon tho saloons tjio burden of proof of the sufficiency of their petitions of consent, the saloons of PCS Hollies have all been closed. They could not show tho number of eligible signers required by law, and now they will bo compelled to do all their \vork over again from the beginning if they want to resume operations. The result in Polk shows h}\v for, saloon business in every county where then; is a large and determined prohibition element. It is now very doubtful iftbo Dea Molnos saloons can get names enough to do busi-H'S" on. The Emmet County republicans lield their county convention on Saturday, and as was to be expected, Secretary McFarland was given the delegation, mid the previlegeof selecting it us well. M. K. Whelan was accorded the privilege of naming the representative delegation. The senatorial delegation is quoted as favoring Funk's rcnomituUion. ! CORRECT FMRES AT LAST. The Census of 1895 Shows 18,312 Inhabitants iot kos- * suth County. J. J. Smart, of Hamboldt county, well known to many Kossuth county people, expresses liilnself as follows on the silver question: •'Yes, I am red hot for free silver.' I own an interest in some silver mines, and some, friends and relatives of mine do, too. They have been urging me to post up on silver and join the movement for free silver coinage. I have been.doing the posting tiiV'und its 1 have other interests, principally farming, I have come to the conclusion that I ntn for free silver with some conditions. If I consent to the government .giving value to the products of th'e silver mines I want something clone for nvy other interests. The government must bnild a flouring mill in every township 1 ''where I own any land. tal\e five bushels of my wheat and grind it into a barrel of ilonr and stamp it worth S3 worth of gold anywhere in the world. Thou [ shall ,bo .satisfied and we farmers \vlllbc placed on a par with what the silver mini owners are asking." Tim very latest is a dog suicide. Tin dog in the case was the property of 1'ier- pont Mo'r'givn, of New York, was an im- povt.athm from England and was reported to have cost 610,000. The dog went, into a pond along with others for a oath, but refused to come out, and when its kecpei walke'cf'into, the water to bring it ashore it dived down and stayed under until dead. A recent article in the Popular Science Monthly shows the great reduction in the cost of railroad transportation that ha? taken place in recent years. From this it appears that in 1807,.284 bushels of wheat could ho carried from Chicago to New York for the. export price of 100 bushels, while in 1894, f>20"bushels could be carried fonthat amount.
