DOXSEE, Hardware^ can The republican party, in the past, has been in furor of a protective tariff; in favor of American wages for American labor; in favor of American industries and American products; in favor of America first and England last. There we stand today. Under the fostering influences'pf the protective tariff, and reciprocity, enacted by the republican party, we had prosperity, good times, plenty of money. Industries were established, encouraged, developed, and maintained, so that American labor, American capital, produced and supplied, to a large extent, the wiluts of tbe American people. Under it labor was ennobled. Through it was made possible tlie American home, unknown to any other country, or any other people. The American home, the foundation, the stability of this government. Legislate away the ability to build and maintain in Americsi the. home, and you will fill the country with a roving, reckless, impoverished people that must result in anarchy. In 1892, through the deceptions and false promises of the democratic party, Benjamin Harrison was defeated and and Grover Cleveland elected. ' A majority of the people thought that they wanted a change. They got it. It is a- matter of history in what doses it came, and how soon they learned they didn't want it. • At the time of this election, .the country was prosperous; business was good; manufactories were in operation; demand. . Hardly.had Mr. Cleveland been inaugurated before their free promises and threats culminated a panic, as severe in its disastrous re- .sults;-as/it was sudden in its coining. It gave no warning. It swept down upon us an avalanche of distrust and fear of democratic legislation. Tliey promised to repeal the McKiu- }ey tariff law, and to enact a law to collect duties for the^purgbse of "revenue only." -•? Vhttfio I /J * , ~~ '' gar trust' and othpr coiinblnV' satisfied the people piattbe democratic party was truly in favor of a" tariff for revenue only. But they demand to know who only got the revenue. , This legislative outrage was .so p r at- ent that President ; .Cleveland was forced to publicly declare that, they bad "marked the places where the deadly blight of treason,. : had blasted the councils of the brave in their hour of might." It was so false to tbe pledges and promises of the democratic party, that the president publicly denounced it as ."party perfidy and dishonor." This bill was so opposed to the interests of pur people, our institutions and our principles, so un-American, that it'Was left by the president at the door of congress, unsigned,, unnamed, without a father, a public foundling forever. It wiis this class of legislation that made it possible in the-Second district of Iowa to overcome 9,000 democratic majority and elect a republican congressman. • That made'it possible to annul the illicit marriage contract of Weaver and the democratic party in the Ninth district. That made it possible to give Iowa a solid republican delegation in congress. That made it possible to sweep the country with republican victories, Cognizant of its gigantic blunder; smarting under the stinging rebuke of 189i, who wonders that the democratic 'leaders at once attempted to conceal their free trade sacrifice by turning their,- tom-toms upon tbe currency question, , Now that prospective republican legislation lias restored business confidence; now that the fires in our furnaces are being rekindled; now that the wages of labor are again being advanced to the American standard. , Let us see to it that the democratic party does not M*ue both the buttle ground and the weapons. ket us demand that the tariff ques' tion be-one of the issues. .

A political party must be consistent. The Inane trmrket has til ways been republic-Jin doctrine. A nun-bet in Town for the products of Iowa rn< j iii!s prosperity for the farmer.

The republican party has been, and is now, in fjivor of a 'sound national currency. A currency alwtijs redeemable in coin. \VliMieverthe form of our money, whether .cold, silver or paper, it must luive equal purchasing power. In the pastthu republjciin party hits espoused the canst! of the people on all the great questions affecting their interests. So now, the republican party must, not be lured aside by what might l>e called an apparent crazo sweeping over the country, but must take its position according to the very right of this question. In my view'we must favor bimetallism, the use of both silver and gold, with the largest use of silver in our currency that will not impair or endanger, iu any way. the parity in value of all money in circulation, whether metallic or paper. That we should favor an international conference, to adopt such measures as will insure a parity of value between gold and silver for use as money throughout the world. That the United States should not open its mints to free coinage of silver until an arrangement shall have been made with other leading commercial nations, \yhereby they will agree to concurrently open their mints to free coinage, at an agreed ratio. .,, Le.t this convention, with the of harmony and wisdom that prevails Hrnong you. nominate its candidates atid 'decjare its platform, and you will carry the state by 75,000 majority.

Saladln had followed a tradition of eastern despotism in the formation of a bodyguard destitute of all ties except those which bound them to his'person. Purchased as infants in Georgia or Gircassia, they were, like the janizaries at Constantinople, trained to •arms ' as an exclusive profession, and 'mounted on the finest steeds of Arabia became the elite of his army. In time this body of, acute and powerful men trans- fQrmc^yitBelf. into a watrior caste,, was divided: 1 Ij0;pr$4*companies and "Obeyed 410 ' authority except i^pfWoSpfe^fts.'*^^ were known in'oriental phrase aj3*15e$$ 'the subordinates were thernseTres wljat' we' call the Mamelukes, and the'whole formed a kind of ohivajry which governed the land with despotic power, and caring-nothing for the nominal/suzerainty of th'dsul- tan bade defiance to'his shaky authority. The first portion of BoPaparte's proclamation sketched the evils of Mameluke tyranny ;.the second called on the populace to aid their liberators. "We, tod, are true Mussulmans. Is . it not wo who have destroyed the pope, that said war must be made on the Mussulmans? Is it not we who have destroyed the Knights of Malta because those insensate chevaliers believed God wanted them to make war on Mus- sulmans? Thrice happy they who are on 'bur side I They shall prosper in their fortune and in their place. Happy those who are neutral. They shall have time to understand us and shall array themselves with us. But woo—thrice woe—to those who shall take up arms for the Mamelukes and fight against us! There hope loft for them. They'shall perish." The contrast between this language and that which its author had used in Italy concerning the church shows how much sincerity there was in either.—Professor Sloane'3 "Life of Napoleon" in Century. Flower Colors. Yellow and white. Botanists are agreed that the earliest petals were yellow, and that originally all flowers were of that color. The order of development of color in flowers appears to be yellow, pink, red, purple, lilac, up to deep blue—probably the highest level—while white may occur in any normally colored flower, just as al- bipps are found among animals. As flowers become more specialized, they become more dependent upon the visits of special insect?! purple and < blue flowers, for instance, benefiting most from and being most preferred by bees and butterflies, A French authority states that about 4,800 species of plants are utilized for various purposes in Europe, Of these only about opo-tepth have an agreeable perfume, #10 others being either inodorous or having an unpleasant smell, White flowers are the most numerous, One thousand one hundred apd twenty-four species out of 4,800 are white, and 187 of these have a scent! 931 (T7 perfumed) are yellow, Nest in or^er- comes*red, with 833, of whjoh 84 give foptb a perfume-, then blue, p94 (84 scented). a,n4 violet, 808, cmiy 13 of which have- apy perfume.
