The county board at their last meeting adopted the following: f Whereas, The board are satisfied that the county printing is costing Sii more than it* would if open to competition, and only a part of the people are deriving any benefit from the Sa Be e solved, That the attention of our senator and representative be called to this matter and be requested to have such changes made in the .law, asi will enable the board to place in the hands of every resident tax payer ot the county a Copy of the proceedings at a reas- ^Andalsoconsider the propriety of reducing official salaries. / The resolutions are too indefinite to in saying certainly They probably refer to the designation of official papers and indicate that Mr. Chubb, who fathered the resolutions, is dissatisfied with the working of the present law. In the absence of explanatory notes it looks like an attempted boycott on the newspapers and thq publication of the proceedings by poster. No paper in the county goes to every tax payer, and no paper, nor all the papers ever will. A certain proportion of the people of the county cannot read English, and many who can cannot be induced to read it. The poster, to meet Mr. Chubb's conditions, would have to be printed in numerous languages, and at greater expense than now. This matter of of- aaf«f as it might to KU . There is no doubt that the rail* road ftod prohibitory laws were passed in otodienee to the will of the people, and though some differences of opinion have arisen as to the methods embodied in these laws, there need be no question but the people are still overwhelmingly in favor of the objects which these laws had in view. The legislator who fails to take note of this fact, and Who allows himself to be led by the paid lobbies that infest the capitol will make the great mistake of his life. Ship wetii Mflfr. eonnty. V warrant anyone what they mean The present mulct law is a good one so far as it is a mulct law. In so far as it lays a new and just tax on a class of law breakers, it Wisely selects the class to bear the burden, and the terms of the law are well chosen with a view to the successful collection of the tax. But in so far as it provides for indulgences on petition of communities the law is unlike anything ever before the statute books. Senator Allison is in DCS Moines this week and Is receiving many honors at the hands of Iowa people, not to mention his unanimousreaomination foi'TJ. S. senator by the republican legislators and his almost unanimous re-election. The people of this state must bo getting a little tired of this perennial outbreak of opposition to every man for any office who has ever been an attorney for a railroad. Of course there are some deluded persons who assume that a railroad corporation is always so flagrantly wrong in its contentions that it has no right to the services of an attorney, but that is a pretty wild theory when you come to state it. Seriously, we believe that a man may have that basis of character which fits him for public trusts and at the same time accept any legitimate employment in the line of his business or profession.

Satisfactofy Showing for th6 The ttew bfficers—Farmers' Institute will b<* Meld in Match. on V It is not probable that the present legislature will accommodate the brewers and distillers with a law legalizing their business. The democratic party took up their case during the campaign, and the failure of the party is presumed to have carried with it that of its friends. It is a fact to be noted, however, that there is a small element in the republican party that has some way got the impression that it is shrewd political management to coddle the beer and whiskey vote, which has always been against their party, and to punish the law abiding, respectable and substantial citizenship of the state which has given republicanism its victories. Another thing to be noted in GoV. Drake started in right by selecting the best man he could get for his private secretary, Capt. Wm. 11. Fleming, of Des Moines. Capt. Fleming has held that position under a number of governors and is undoubtedly one of the best posted men in the state. The REPUBLICAN'S readers had the pleasure of reading his instructive reports of the last legislative session, and of several before that. Judge Geo. G. Wright, of Des Moines, died Saturday morning at the age of 70 years. He was a pioneer and took an active part in early Iowa politics. He was a state senator, was a member of the supreme court for fifteen years, and was a United States senator for six years from 1870. He was a very popular man and will be widely mourned. ficial printing has been up in the legis- conn ection with this proposed manu- lature every session for the past quart- f ac turebill is that the reasons publicly er of a century, but we do not recall given cannot be the real reasons be- that the objection of undue expense r hin a it, because thoy have no force suf- was ever before raised, nor did it ever fl c i e nt to favorably influence any sane before come up in the form of a pro- m i n d not already committed to the liq- posed newspaper boycott.

The suggestion of throw- to competition" is COUNTY NOTES, The Burt Monitor publishes a creamery report of Secretary Angus for 1895, showing 4,188,667 pounds of milk received/for the year and 186,812 pounds of 'butter made. Mr. Angus hopes for a record of five million pounds in 1896. The patrons re-, eived upwards of 831,000 in cash ahd butter for their milk. The Burt creamery,, s one of the most prosperous in'the coup-, y. The officers for 1896 are G. N. Patteron president, C. P. Stow vice president and G. S. Angus secretary. E. P. Kefth vas added to the board of directors. Sexton is to have a bank, and it'is to ,be conducted by Stiteel.X. Way, L. V. Ham. by and others. Business is expected to open this week. Mr. Way has been .the cashier of the Wesley State Bank and is a wide-awake and successful business man/' ing things "open Mr. probably not meant seriously by Chubb. At any rate it is more than likely that he will have to wait a long time for his pet newspaper law, and Awhile he is waiting for it he can perhaps save the county money by throwing numerous things "open to competition" that the law puts wholly within the control of the board. In truth it is an astonishment that Mr. Chubb should apply to the legislature for a grant of power to control a little piece of business now unhappily placed beyond his discretion, while refusing for all his years on the board to apply the principle he sets such store by to items of The annual meeting of the Kossuth County Agricultural Society was held at the Court House Saturday afternoon and in the absence of the president Capt. Dodge, .who was detained at home by sickheesy Was presided over by vice president E. P* Keith, The re* ports of Secretary E. B. Sutler and Treasurer J. W» Wadsworth showed that the society is in a very satisfactory financial condition. The fair last fall was the largest in attendance and receipts the society has known, The gate receipts amounted to $1,164.16, The premiums, race purses and special attractions were on a like scale, so that the society is not troubled with a surplus.

The legislature opens its biennial session this week, and legislative topics will be prominent for some mouths, Thet-j topics will probably cover near dy the whole field, as the report of code commission does so. the * * * It seems to have been a prevalent supposition that the work of this commission was to codify existing statutes: that is, to classify, harmonize and simplify them. In fact tbe commission, besides its merely clerical work, has embodied many new legislative propositions in its report. Of course no body of law makers will assume responsibility for new laws without examination and discussion, and so the session will be a long and busy one, unless, as eeems quite probable, an extra session is liad. No legislator should hesitate to favoy an extra session if it is needed. The matter of expense is not to be too seriously considered. The one thing state cannot afford is ill consider* and harmful laws, is oniy one other argu ment offered in behalf of this measure and that has been regarded as a strong one by some of our contemporaries is that having passed the mulct law legalizing the sale of intoxicating liquors we must in consistency legalize their manufacture. There might be something in that if any real difficultj bad been experienced now or heretofore in getting the liquors required for the legal sale. The friends of the mulct law, however, insist that it does not increase the quantity actually sold, and whether that is so or not. no practical difficulty seems to exist. The promoters of the bill pretend to be worried about the matter of consistency, ai d to be driven against their will by a logical necessity. In truth the logical situation has not been changed one iota since the passage of the prohibitory law, which outlawed every brewery and distillery in Iowa. In making this point it is unnecessary to quote that incomprehensible,section of the mulct law which says that "nothing in this act contained shall be in any way construed to mean that the business of the sale ot intoxicating liquors is in any way legalized." It is sufficient to say that the prohibitory law itself legalized the sale for three or four purposes, and the mulct law, if it means anything, legalized the sale for another purpose, under certain conditions, and that is NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS.

The BBPUBLICAN, like most other enterprising county newspapers, has frequently offered premiums to subscribers paying in advance, and to a limited extent it will do so this year, but only so long as our present supply holds out. This premium is especially valuable to farmers, and the offer below is intended for their benefit. It is the FABMER'S LABOR-SAVING ACCOUNT BOOK. . The account book is gotten up with a view to the especial needs of farmers and is a very desirable thing to have n the house. It is of legal cap size, with stiff .manilla covers, has space 'or miscellaneous 'memoranda' and ias'ruled monthly expense account sheets, showing articles purchased and articles sold during the year.

If any poor sou! is deluded with the notion that the Solons of this state are under some logical compulsion to do something in this matter which they do not want to do, they should dismiss that notion at once, There are some men, perhaps, so infatuated with the mulct law as to make it the criterion of all their reformatory labors, but we doubt if many men of that mental infirmity have made their way .into the legislature.
