ocroBftft it imf- fotteatu IATBS: .40 pait of the state has lost population. The only gains have been in the northwestern and north central portions. *** If anybody wants to get pointers in politics which will not point the wrong way, he should read Senator Allison's Marshalltown speech, which the gives in full today. This Dorics* democratic candi- ijjetintendefat, makes a SCtatic speech. He ar- i raising of federal rev Ef, and seems to favor , something which never Fthis cOUhtl-y and which The constitution allows it such taxation upon the Srding to population and Igard to Wealth, and so it punt to a per capita tax, with orer and the multi-million^ ; alike in the support of the . There is no party in ex- lich advocates such taxation, ["beginning of the government |the tariff has by common con- the chief reliance in provid- ral revenues. As to the popu- iand for an income tax, it will be indorsed again by the demo- party unless under some such ilsion as that which was upon it le last congress, when it had to [populist votes in the senate to i the tariff legislation. The terms ihetariffi bill itself placed a brief it upon the life of the tax, and the jision of the supreme court ended it "maturely. That decision is not ccssarily against all income tax leg- ilatiou, but it is against an income lax placed upon some forms of properly. The democratic party is as hostile to such taxation as the republican party, and during the war, when the republicans resorted to it as an extreme measure, the democrats opposed it bitterly. Any speaker now who holds up the democratic party as an advocate of income taxation is practicing upon the gullibility of his listeners. There is not, in fact, any such issue as an income tax, and there is something very grotesque in the spectacle of a candidate for the leadership of the educational forces of the state engaged in the serious advocacy of a revolution of the constitution of the United States to permit of income taxation. We doubt if Mr. Parshall's purpose in this campaign extends to the practice of an imposition upon an innocent and coufid- speech, and all of Mr. Allison's speeches, can be read with immense profit by men of every political faith, because of the statemanlike marshalling of facts bearing upon the pending questions. There is no pettifogging in Mr. Allison's speeches, lie is fair always, and his points are clearly and ably made. Some of our stutnp speakers befog public questions. Mr. Allison, on the other hand, illuminates them. * * * The democrats Went into the campaign With not the best prospects, yet they could go on both legs, though hot rapidly. But now they have been seriously crippled by the withdrawal of their candidate for the legislature. Hon. J. J. Byan served his party faithfully andwith ardor when there seemed, as he said Monday night, to be a "popular uprising to place him in congress." The uprising would have been all right for Mr. By an, who is a nice man, but there was no "popular uprising" for the democratic party. The "popular uprising" was in fact to bury have in the field a larger force thaft the American colonies could muster at the time when their title to belligerent rights was recognized by France. They have organized a provisional government and have commissioned delegates Who are authorized to conduct nego^ tialions with foreign states. The objection which withheld us from recognizing the Chilian insurgents against President Balmaceda does not apply to the case of Cuba. An attempt to overthrow the duly elected president of a republic is one thing; an effort to throw off the yoke of an oppressive monarchy and found a republic is an* other. Eveiy motive which prompted us in the first quarter of this century to regard with satisfaction the liberation of Spain's possessions on the American mainland should be emphasized in the case of Cuba, which now has to bear the whole brunt of Spanish tyranny and greed. There never was a case in history where the duty of according to insurgents so much protection as is assured to recognized belligerents by international law was so clear and so imperative. To the programme of butchery and blood announced by Senor Canovas del Castillo, our government should reply by a declaration that the Cuban revolutionists have made good their title to be treated with all the leniency prescribed for belligerents by the law PARSHALL'S SPEECH, Me is Agin All Thrifts arid tit's trie Populist OUR PERFECT FITTING Of LADIES' Mis Speech Condemned the Record of the Democratic Party and was ft Great Curiosity. There was a democratic meeting the court house Monday night* principal speaker being L.M.Parshall, of Maqttoketa, the democratic candi date for state superintendent. one theme was the tariff, and he immense success, any doubt about and will no be the democratic party out of sight, and the funeral was an Nobody need have that's being the program for this year, and Mr. Eyan is a wise man to get out of the way. It is to be expected that the democratic bosses will put up some man to fill the large vacancy, but at present the leaders are at sea prediction can be made who selected as the victim. Mr. Hanna and Mr. By an having declined to run, Mr. Mayne at present has a clear field, and the best the democrats can hope for is to prevent its being made unanimous for him. it * * The Courier evidently has a mistaken idea of the word "scurrilous," or else it does not mean what it says. The REPUBLICAN has not used any low, indecent or obscene language in reference to any democratic or other candidate. The Courier has a mistaken view of the word "tirade." The REPUBLICAN has not made any democratic or other candidate the object of a "tirade." If the Courier will look up its dictionary it will discover that of nations. LANDED ON UOLLlYEii'S NECK "Several Schooners," So the Papers Said. Our Member Enlivens the Old Settler's Meeting at Jefferson. Tells Them About "Dolliver's Neck" and Makes a Witty Speech Without Any Politics in It—Why Dolliver "Located" at Fort Dodge. -.- . newspaper special from Jefferson, not even mention the great question of silver, the two sides of which are rep* resented on the democratic ticket by Babb and Bestow. J. J, Byan followed in a brief but well prepared speech, Mr. Parshall's great argument was to show that the raising of government revenues by a tariff works unjustly with the poorer classes, because a tax upon consumption. He had numerous charts to show how this injustice works, according to his theory, which failed to take into consideration the immense reduction in prices which has been effected by the building up of great industries in this country. The speaker made no distinction whatever between a tariff levied for protection and one levied for revenue. He was against the tariff anyway, and seemed to favor diiect taxation, a revenue expedient, never so far attempted in the history of tliia country. He made a strong plea for an income tax. The speaker went on for a long time without betraying a knowledge that income taxation has been declared unconstitutional by the United States supreme court, but he finally faced that obstacle and gaily surmounted it by proposing to revolutionize the constitution. He took up the wages question and argued to show that invention and not Capes His did Jackets -w» ~m-' Has no equal for either STYLE or FINISH. •——Jas, Taylor, DOWS-RICHMOND. ing public, but we do conclude that he is badly mistaken in his sizing up of a newspaper may express of a candidate for an opinion office which that democratic principles.

He ms not to have received any intima- n that there has been a battle raging a long time in this country, not for against the imposition of a tariff, hich all recognize we must have, but ver the character and purpose of that •tariff. The republicans never claimed for a tariff imposed for revenue only, such as democracy stands for, that it meant high wages. They believe that on the other hand it means the closing of mills and factories and the loss of work and wages. Neither do they make the preposterous claim that the higher a protective tariff the higher will wages be under it. The situation in which any industry is placed determines what, if any, tariff upon competing products is necessary. The thing which makes for high wages, according to the republicans, is a great demand for work as related to the supply. A tariff levied with a view to protection, and successfully adjusted to suit the conditions existing, will stimulate production and manufacture,.! so making a demand for work, and result in high wages, A tariff levied for revenue ' only, and without respect to whether it will build up an industry or raised wages, but —- v tion, but it does not confess the temptation to-descend to. rilous tirade." to even a "scur- OUR DUTY TO CUBA. New York Sun: The government of the United States cannot afford to overlook the manifesto issued by the prime minister of Spain. In this shameful proclamation Seuor Canovas kiUJt, never sucli tariffs have often broken down established industries and thrown men out of work and wages and capital out of employment.

It behooves us as the leading representatives of human and enlightened feeling on this continent to answer this manifesto by an official declaration that the rights of belligerents must be conceded to the Cubans. So long as we refuse to recognize the Cuban insurgents as belligerents Spain has the legal right to sentence them to death by courts martial, and to buy in our markets munitions of war. Why should we continue to grant to Spain an access to our markets which is denied to the revolutionists? And why, by an attitude of indifference, should we connive at .her barbarous treatment of men whose crime is that they are following our example and are struggling to be free? Is it because Spain recognized the confederates as belligerents within forty days after the battle of Bull Bun, a battle not more decisive than that fought near Bayamo, the re- pult of which was that Marshal Martinez Campos, the Spanish commander in chief, bad to flee for his life? Is it because the Madrid government has the Mora claim, a claim which it Greene county, says: At the annual meeting of the old settlers of Greene county, Saturday, Congressman Dolliver made a speech that greatly pleased the pioneers. He said in part: "My ancestors were among the hardy fishermen and sailors along the rueged coast of Massachusetts. In that section there was a point of land known as Dolliver's Neck, and recently when a severe storm raged along the New England shore and several boats were beached on this point, the daily newspapers heralded the news in black headlines, "Last night several schooners were lauded ; on Dolliver's Neck," and one uncharitable democratic jjress has since been industriously'using tbe statement for political effect. T/'liave' always felt a deep sympathy for ,the thrifty, conscientious people of New England along that rockbound coast, and am inclined to the opinion that the Almighty was unnecessarily economical in giving out soil. If the sturdy fathers who settled that region had known of Iowa, New England would today be an unsettled wilderness.,. I will be truthful aud say that the reason I became a citizen of Iowa was because when bound for the far northwest my money gave out at Fort Dodge tariff had increased wages. He said the republican idea is that the higher tariff the higher wages will be, and he gave no sign that he recognized any distinction between different kinds of tariffs, so that they were high. The speech from first to last was a condemnation of the democratic party, which is committed against every proposition he favored, and on record in favor of eveiy thing he condemned. There were only a few people out, and those attending were about equally divided between democratic survivals and republicans. HONORED AGE. and I never thought it necessary to go any farther. I shudder to think of what might have been; fighting crop failures for ten years, and really believe it would have been more exhausting than fighting matrimonial rumors the past summer, as I have done. This calls to mind a sight I witnessed in western Iowa a couple of years .ago. A prairie schooner passed along the road, eastern bound, and upon the site of the muslin top was painted in bold letters the following inscription: "Colorado for irrigation; Kansas for starvation; Nebraska for hell and damna- The Fiftieth Anniversary of the Marriage - ofj. E. Blackford and Miss Mary M. Call, Handsomely Celebrated. Despite very unpleasant weather, the celebration of the golden wedding of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Blackford on Saturday afternoon and evening.was a very pleasant and successful one. The numbers in attendance were large, the enduring tokens of love and friendship were many and beautiful, and the occasion was very pleasant socially. The decorations were artistic and elegant and the house was made very beautiful. Claris Blackford and wife and children were in attendance from abroad, as was Miss May Clarke also. The couple honored by this demonstration were married in St. Joseph county, Indiana. The bride was Miss Mary M. Call, a sister of Ambrose A. Call and the late Judge Call, bhe was but eighteen years of age when married, and the groom was only twenty, and it is easy to compute that they are now 68 and 70 years old respectively. They have been residents of this place for about 40 years, in the course of which Mr. Blackford has accumulated a fine property and has been honored by a seat in the legislature and by election as county treasurer and to other positions of trust. He was for John Dows and Miss Annie Richmond Married Last Thursday at Armstrong. The marriage of John Dows and Miss Annie Richmond took place at Armstrong on Thursday afternoon, the ceremony being performed by Rev. A. A. Crandull, of Marengo, in the Presbyterian church, in the presence of a large number of friends. The couple departed the same afternoon for Minneapolis on a wedding trip. The wedding was a notable event 111 Armstrong, made so by the prominence and high standing of the parties, and all the arrangements were in keeping. Many guests were _ present from abroad, including Miss Ella Laugdou, of Algona, and the numerous gifts were costly and elegant. Mr. Dows is a nephew of Hon. S. L. Dows, of Cedar Rapids, the prominent railroad man and politician. He is engaged in real estate and is a prosperous and capable business man, who has done much to make Armstrong the fine town and business center which it is. The bride is well known and has many warm friends in Algona where she held a high position as a public school teacher for several years. After leaving Alcona, she spent a year in Mt. Holyoke Seminary, Massachusetts. She is the daughter of Mr. Matthew Richmond, one ot the well known and substantial farmers on our northwestern border, and one of the best men in the country. Mr. ana Mrs. Dows will have a fine, new house awaiting their occupancy on their return from the bridal trip. The REPUBLICAN congratulates, .the .worthy J.

THE THISTLE IS ABROAD. Burt Monitor: G. S. Angus while out last week saw a wagon load or Bussian thistles that had been pulled upon a farm two or three miles north of A. \V. Blanchard's. The Bussian thistle should be properly looked after. Every farmer of tbe county should take pains to ascertain whether or not there is any about his farm. More than this, there is a law demanding its destruction. If not taken in time it will take the land. Look out for them. Bancroft Begister: P. M. Barslou on Tuesday brought in a Bussian thistle 21 feet in circumference. He got it on a burned-out slough eight or nine miles north, near the Post farm, and says there are two hundred full-grown brothers on the same patch. Wesley Reporter: While preambu- lating in the neighborhood of Bancroft this week our ever truthuil J. J. xsua- long says he saw the banner Bussian thistle ever grown in the county. By actual measurement it scored 23 feet and three inches in diameter and stood between five and six feet high.
