WEDNESDAY, JtTLIf 31, 1895. ALGONA, KOSStfTH OOtftiT* IOWA, lines, and the remainder > the Indiana, Illinois & Iowa, was incororated in NEXT GOVERNOR OF IOWA, , Iowa and destined to pass through the state in the hot distant future* "I When You want it (Jo to the intefestittg Keadittg About F, M, Drake, the Heart Namitiee, His Record as a Railroad Builder and Mis Opinions on tmjjottant StdtS and National Subjects. Is an important tool in every man's pocket. "We believe we have the finest line of Knives .and Scissors ever brought to Kossuth County. To give every man and boy an opportunity to carry a good knife, we will offer FOB 30 DAYS ONLY our regular 60 cent knife 43 cents. State Register. From these matters Gen* Brake drifted into a discussion of. the direct issues of the campaign. He said that he proposed, in bis speeches, to lay stress upon the tariff and the currency. "This is almost a national campaign," he said. "The political fortunes ot, one of the greatest statesmen, an Iowa man, who may yet be president, are more or less wrapped up in it. This t is the year to prepare for the presidential campaign. What we do now and the results of our activities will tell in the national convention next June. I believe the tariff will be the dominant question next y6ar. This question therefore, belongs to the Iowa earn paign this year. It should be treated as such. .1 have been a protectionist all'my life, and never more so than -now. I have passed through two free trade eras. Most of the voters in this state remember only the one which began with the last -election of Grover Cleveland. The results of this experience should be constantly key before : the public. It Is not merely a party service to keep his record before the people, but a service to the country On the currency-question I am satisfied with the republican platform. The republican party is for silver,.'.^gqld and >aper, as money, but none of it must; ue depreciated. We want'.; a dollar worth 1.00 cents and no mote. The. party is also opposed to the re-estab- ishment of the state banks, as proposed by the democratic party and rer broposedby Grover Cleveland. There are ; other national issues, such as those zrbwing out of the pension record Of the present administration and its general failure to grasp the greatness and. grandeur of the nation, which was preserved on the battle field of the late war. •,-'••• fSTATE ISSUES Am>-INSTITUTIONS. . Since the convention adjourned democratic papers have had more or less to say about state issues. ."They have all the time been laying stress on these, 1 " said Gen. Drake.,--: "The.reason is they are afraid of , national; ones.- They QQ 3 to discuss the tariff, jfior^Ml* '^p^Jwriotlsmv^nd'that tor republican party's record is better than democratic newspaper protestations. In the administration of state finances and state institutions the republican party has been business-like. >. \ propose to do my part in continuing; these policies. The state institutions. shall have my especial care arid attention. The democratic party has nowhere, as 'far as I can learn, demonstrated signal ability in the management of state affairs. The states that are most hopelessly democratic are almost hopelessly in debt. Just why the business affairs of the state of lOwa should be. turned over to them 1 fail to see. I shall favor the enforcement pf law and the con- ,trol of corporations and advise the spee'dy x enactment of laws regulating loan and building associations, which are now without any. regulation, not crippling them, -but fully protecting the depositors. On other state Questions 1 shall consider, only the best interests of the people. There can, be no differences as to these business questions. We are all agreed as to them and partisanship should have no partnership either in their discussion or settlemeut." UNEQUIVOCAL ON LIQUOR QUESTION have also noticed'their efforts to would not wipe out that record ot ser vices to the people of Hay state to become president of the United States," he said. "Those railroads are next to my four years in the war* my services to my country. That much at least 1 have contributed to the welfare of the people and to the development of the state. Whehlwentto Centerville 1 found the people of a whole tier ot counties practically without railroad communication, was it a crime to give the farmers an outlet for their products? I am not afraid to go for approval of my course to the people among whom 1 have built these roads. When they came to me last fall to ask me to aid the petition for higher rates Isaid that what Iwanted was not higher July and Aopst TAYLOR'S. rates ontmoreDUSinesSiraygrievituceM no a gainst the democratic administration nAVnshington rather than against the railroad commissioners of Iowa. My roads have been operated independently. I built them because the people asked me to build them. They were built honestly and they have been operated so, as faV as I have had anything to do with them. The democrats are not hohest when they make such appeals to the people, and I do not believe that the people can be deceived by them. In my speeches, whenever the question comes up,. I shall, speak with entire frankness .ot my railroad connections. I shall occasionally drag them in because I am. proud of what I have done for the development of Iowa. I want those 400 miles of railroad to be recognized - as part of my record. They call me rail- r6ad king aridjtriple millionaire and so greatly exaggerate that their utterance's"become untruthful. I do not. consider myself very wealthy, and am stire I would have been worth more money had I never entered the rail- toad business, but confined myself to former pursuits."' 100 Sailor Hats at lOc. 50 Trimmed Pattern Hats at coat, 100 shapes, all styles, Hats at cost. 1000 yards Summer Wash Goods at lOc; sold for 12c to 20c. 400 yards Wide Lace, worth 50c to 75c, at 25c per yard. 15 Silk Waists at cost; all good, choice styles. 50 Capes at one-half regular price.
