This country has now had four decisive elections in fout years. The over- •thtow of republicanism in 1892 was Complete, extending to all departments of the government. The three years Which have followed have given three republican victories. That of 1893 gave us back tfew York, New jersey, Illinois* Michigan and the western populist states. In 1894 an overwhelming ly republican congress was elected and nearly every democratic leader in the house was retired to private life. This year, again, the republicans have taken everything in sight which they didn't have, and which the peculiarites of our form of government permitted the voters to give them at this time, with the exception of Virginia and Mississippi. Great northern states all give latge republican majorities, the new state of Utah steps into the republican column and gives the republicans two more United States senators, and Kentucky and Maryland have elected republican governors and legislatures and will each send a republican to the senate. There has not been much to ask in these three successive elections which the republican party has not been given. It looks as though it meant something. What it means, seemingly, is a settled conviction in the minds of the American people that the democratic party is not administering the government in a manner to meet their wishes. That party has not been rejected on one issue merely. The indictment is on broad grounds. It is quite probable that next fall the republicans will again win the presidency. LEGISLATIVE QUESTIONS. Since the election there has been considerable speculation in regard to the probable fate of the resubmission and manufacturing propositions, and the state papers generally seem to anticipate that resubmissionvWill fail and a manufacturing law be passed. We think/there is much reason to the correctness of the latter f ore- I There are republican papers ould be glad to deliver the party (the liquor power, just as they .iave delivered it over to. the railroad ppwer, but there is,-:we i-be^ y &ric\itaw.e,ay>ry strong public sentiment * : 5Sm,efi?aI nst * Iiat P° licy Whi 9 b wil1 m - ke heart, self felt. /It has happened more ; than firce~once that the estimates of .too''previous : Sta ! people have been misleading. The ut- wne terances of conservative party papers gei during the campaign coming underour •"".•»• notice-lea'd us to believe that the re- Kft publican party would not take another : IJftstep at the dictation of the liquor m- 'IjJJkerest. Another thing which has ''™^hown the inherent weakness of the i'tiiabaovement for the restoration of the brewery and distillery is the eas- doubt I cast, that over to^ would/ i by the party papers which are ^ning it. The people of this state w ot^elligeut enough to see through the very thin pretences and sophistries upon which the attorneys of the liquor interests depend. In regard to the question of resubmission, it is apparent that even the prohibitionists of Iowa are divided in opinion. That being so, there is no reason to be in a hurry. in the Senate, fottr of the latter beiflg holdovers. The democrats elected oit- font senators in the state. The Courier's always interesting Whittemore correspondence was more interesting than usual last week by reason of the dark brown roasts administered. We refer to Brd. Boyle's spicy letter for the one purpose of saying in regard to the attention given to Ernest Bacon, of Burt, that if it sig nified that he was untrue to the republican ticket or to any part thereof, it was without warrant of fact. Mr. Bac on was out of the state on private busi ness most of the time between the con vention and the election, and he gav no attention to political manipulation while at home. ItwasknoWn by his neighbors, however, that he was outspoken in his support of the straight republican ticket, both state and coutt^ ty. One of the counties making a fine showing of republican gains this year is Palo Alto. That county has been slightly democratic until recently. It has had more democracy in proportion to its population, With the possible exception of Webster than any other county in this whole northwest section. But since the Williams meetings it has come out and taken a decided stand for republicanism. It gives a republican plurality on the state ticket of 317, and it elects every republican nominee on the county ticket, the lowest republican plurality being 154. In Clay county the republicans gave Drake 857 plurality. Cornwall's estimated majority for the legislature is 1163. Clay county's gain over 1898 was 99. The republicans of Emmet gave Drake 637 plurality and elected their entire county ticket. The feebleness' of the opposition had the effect to prevent a full vote. Pocahontas 'gave Drake 1277 to 677 for Babb—an even 600 plurality.- The republican county ticket went through with big majorities, and the only failure was in the supervisor district. In the Pocahontas-Humboldt representative contest Parley Finch received a plurality of upwards of 100, many democrats and prohibitionists in his own county voting for. him. Gilchrist is re-elected superintendent in Pocahontas by 513 plurality. ( The most disheartening condition of things from the democratic standpoint is to be found in Webster county. In that county, so frequently carried by the democracy, Drake received 943 votes over, Babb. Thos. D. Healy, for senator received an actual majority of 12i8, the largest majority ever given in the county for any candidate, while Abel, for treasurer, was the only dem- who-coulrl spell out a victory in county contest. It is a fact that 1268 voters failed to vote on the jail tax proposition. It seems to be an utter impossibility to. obtain a full expression on such questions at a general election. However, if we are to judge at all by the vote that was cast, a full vote would only have increased the emphasis on the No. . ' The leading topic of conversation north is the way "Col."

The derailed cars were piled in a heap. Conductor Hurley had his front teeth knocked out and his lips, face and neck were badly bruised. He was m the caboose at the time of the accident, and was thrown against some object in the car. The brakemah was in the caboose and was somewhat bruised, but not at all seriously. ?he train was not billed to stop at Sexton, but is said to have been running not faster than ten miles an hour. The conductor was brought up to Algona on the engine and Dr. McCoy, the company's surgeon, dressed his wounds. He was then taken to his home at Mason City.

The Republican Makes a Special Offer Limited to the Supply on Hand. The REPUBLICAN, like most other enterprising county new: :apers. has frequently offered preim'-'iis to subscribers paying in advance, and to a limited extent it will do so this year. These premiums are specially valuable, to farmers arid dairymen, and the offer below is specially' intended for them. We have two premiums to offer and the subscriber can take his choice between them. One is. the Farmer's Labor-Saving Account Book, and the other a year's subscription to "Up-To- Date-Dairying & Profit Farming.' _ The account book is gotten up with a view to the especial needs of farmers and is a very desirable thing to have in the house. It. is of legal cap size, with .stiff manilla covers, has space for. miscellaneous memorandum and ruled monthly expense account sheets,-show- articles purchased and articles sold during the year. It contains a ; fund of information valuable to the farmer and handy for reference, in eluding tables, estimates, computations blank forms, facts for builders, repipes, etc. It is a-25 cent book and no farmer can afford to be without it for:- four times that. It is a copyrighted .Iwork and cannot be obtained in this county except 1 -as a REPUBLICAN prenjiumv: We haveinfty copies',- and the ' first* fifty to call for this premium will be| supV plied.

It is well enough, now that election is over, to look into the reasons of things, but we hardly believe that the Bancroft Register gets at the mam trouble when it says: "Reed's low vote was not a surprise; but it serves to demonstrate our conteu Won that the primary election system is the only method of ascertaining the will of the people as to nominees." The REPTWWCAN has always favored the adoption of the primary system, but likely that system would not help matters in this case, The trouble was not that the will of the people was not expressed. The delegates seem to have bepn fairly chosen, and they seemed, "" ' i, to have chosen the candidate In fact there is an objection to system which cannot be the convention system operated in this instance, In the \A the plurality necessarily a'3d when it is not a majority al- i i£ likely would not have been on •iltendent this fall, the party is vk of that appeal to the sense of which accepts the wiU pf the mar as entitled to consideration- la its last issue the Spirit Lake Beacon celebrated the twenty-fifth anniversity of its founding. The paper was started in 1871 by Orson Rico, but in a few months it was turned over to A, W. Osborne, his partner. At the end of the first year J. A Smith took charge, and in 1873 it again changed hands, O. C. Bates, the noted pioneer editor, ' assuming the management. Mr. Funk became part owner in 1874, and most of the time since then he has been connected with the paper, which is one of the best and most influential in this section. er subscribers, and can be had as. long as they last, on paying up arrearages, if any, and in advance for the year 1896.
